First two eps were really great,last two eps really throwed me back.This should not evolve into some harem.

Nah, I don't think it's really heading the harem way, but it definitely did turn out to be more of a chill series than something that's intense and plot-driven. More just world-building really. They make Gargantia look like a fairly cool place to live. I like the relatively peaceful last couple of eps, though they haven't done much for either plot or character development.

I bet you anything that by ep 8 or 9 they'll start getting back into some sort of heavier stuff. They can't leave the actual plot unresolved, so we'll see how it goes. I'm still very much enjoying this.
The Birds are using humanity in order to throw something terrifying at this green pig. And then what happens to us all later, that’s simply not important to them…

It's obvious they're trying to depict a world which Ledo eventually grows attached to, as the drama's likely going to be an internal conflict for Ledo about whether staying on the Gargantia/helping them out or going back to space/fight against them or something along those lines. You can't just go back to the space and drama without any sort of buildup for the main character, otherwise his conflict wouldn't make sense to begin with. I'm not convinced that fanservice is exactly what cuts it for the job, but it's better than just skipping things altogether and say "yeah I've known you for a couple days tops but I'd rather help you out and go against my duty."
Also, there is no harem, let's not mistake harem and fanservice, there's just some romance tops (it's obvious that if anything happens, Amy's the only one as her friends really aren't meant to build a harem but are there just for the fanservice).

Oh snap, a wild Hideauze appears! Hopefully we'll get some backstory on those things in the next few eps.

Loving the scenes with Ledo and Amy too. They're just the cutest. ;___;

The show's not absolutely riddled with it, but I did find myself a bit aggravated at how we've pretty much gotten two fanservice episodes in a row.
(I know its a festival dance, but do we really need closeups of the gals booties with looped shaking and all that? I liked Amy's dance at the end, though. That looked more graceful to me).

But I still think this is my favorite of the season. Next episode seems more Hideauze-focused since the end of episode 6. :up:

Yeah, I agree, it's got a bit fanservice-y in the last couple of eps, but it looks like it's getting on track with something now.

Spoiler :
Plot twist: Hideauze are actually from Earth?

Certainly the stuff about nanomachines and the various changes on Earth seems to hint that something is up.

... Amy has friends and it would be sad if she didn't however, giving the main character something worth fighting for is also a good plot! ( too many wars are faught w/o knowing what your fighting for.
... As to finding-out that your enimy is Dinner to others puts a whole new twist on any battlefield. ( Mu-Ha-Ha )

This is actually better than expected. Definitely one of the better shows this season.
