Suisei no Gargantia Episode 8: Separation


I'm just a normal guy, chillin' on the internet in search of a place that I can call my sacred hang. What more can I say?

    Wow, I never noticed that Ledo was getting a tan, but you’re totally right! At this point his skin is like a normal person’s lol

    On the other side of things, this episode was just so emotional and sad! I was watching it on the couch while some family members were beside me with the TV on, so I had to will myself not to cry during the funeral or when Amy was tearfully making supper TT^TT and it was soooo sweet that the sickly Bevel ran all the way to the hanger to try and convince Ledo not to leave, and it was also soooo touching to see that Ledo has formed enough of an attachment to Amy to go and say goodbye to her (but Amy, why you hold back feelings?!! She should have just thrown him against a wall and kissed him senseless >.<!! But speaking of which, would Ledo even know what kissing is? I know he was granted procreation rights at the start of episode one, but the Alliance seems so cold and unfeeling, I feel like it would all just be done by technological means, rather than any actual touching =/)

    And Pinion…that Pinion…my prediction for next episode is that lots of people get killed when Ledo bites off more than he can chew, and he's forced to return to the Gargantia alone (except maybe Pinion, because the people you hope will die never do) and falls into depression from failing to fulfill his duty. Episode 10 will be the soul-searching episode where Ledo realizes that AMY NEEDS HIM so he can't go rushing into danger with no regard for his own life anymore, and then…episodes 11-12 will be…some kind of Princess Mononoke-esque conclusion where they're attacked by the Whalesquids at first but then make peace with them…

    So that's my Happiest End prediction. I bet it'll be much worse though. AT LEAST LET AMY AND LEDO STAY TOGETHER IN THE END, UROBUCHER!! THAT'S ALL I ASK!!! *Bursting with feels*

    It’s become quite apparent (to me anyway) that this is an anime that relies heavily on character building. Even moreso perhaps in some ways that the recent Psycho-Pass. But this is very important so that deaths (and we know there WILL BE DEATHS) are all the more poignant/painful. Oyaji anyone?

    Regarding the length of the funeral, it didn’t dawn on me until the end that they weren’t putting handfuls of sand in the boat because it’s scarcity and worth (a la Waterworld…and I KNOW I’m not the only person that’s seen THAT monstrosity), but so that the boat would sink upon launching. Also, I’m not surprised by the length because think of other such funerals of famous politicians…if anything, I’m shocked at how SHORT it was!
