I was a bit hesitant at first to actually watch the Suisei no Gargantia specials due to the mediocrity of the series reflected by the 13 episode season. While Gargantia wasn't necessarily bad, the pacing, overall story, and character development are easily depicted as lacking, considering the potential this series innately had. These two specials essentially give background stories behind the story of Gargantia; they fulfill background information in two separate manners. Rather than lumping these two episodes together and calling them 'specials', they should have been split into their own separate OVAs.

The first special covers Ridget, the new overseer and daughter of the read more

For many, the Gargantia series was a hit or miss. Personally, I really liked it, but it wasn't as good toward the end as it was at the beginning. I thought they could have done with a few more episodes, since it was the pacing that killed the end for most people. And now that we have 2 more episodes- both depicting backstories of characters who do kind of need development, so how are they?

Ep 14: I thought this was a pretty okay episode, but kind of forgettable. It showed the backstory of Rigit, the captain of Gargantia. It was a bit sad but far read more

We're in the weird situation where you have a "show" made of two episodes where one is a largely decent episode and the other is... forgettable backstory we didn't really need. All of the good points go to 14, but unfortunately 15 is... also there.

For those who like the LedoxAmy plot in the main series, probably the best parts of episode 14 are them spending time together. They're rather adorable. Ledo actually comforts Amy at one point and it says a lot about how he's grown as a character since he arrived on Earth. (-cough- a lot more than he did in the actual show read more

This isn’t as much of a review as a PSA. These two episodes were made pretty much to fill up the content of the BDs to a neat 5-episodes-per-volume figure. The first one was released on BD Vol.1, the second on BD Vol. 3. As such, referring to them as “episodes 14 & 15” is both wrong and misleading, they aren’t meant to be a follow-up to the main story, rather, the first one is Episode 4.5 and the second one is Episode 13.5.

Episode 4.5 suffers the most if seen at a wrong time, because its story, both chronologically and narrative-wise, takes place between Episodes read more
