I wasn’t 100% sure about Gargantia until they used a supremely advanced artificially intelligent space robot as the grill at a bbq party. While said robot (in Sugita Tomokazu’s voice and somewhat plaintively) inquires why this arrangement is necessary.
I’m not usually into mecha, but I might have to watch this.
This show is one of two that I look forward to this season. The mecha part is pretty much overshadowed by the boy trying figure out his place in a world that makes no sense to him due to cultural differences part (trying not to spoil). Episode 4 pretty much clinched it as a favorite for me. Not to mention of watched pretty much all these episodes at least twice, except episode 5. But that’s only because I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet. Which I think I will right now. =D
You should watch it, you’ll be pleasantly surprised, me thinks. Also it’s really gorgeous.
A truly MINDBLOWING lesson on the origin of American Southern accents.
The gif could not be more perfect in describing what just happened.
yay historical linguistics!
This reminds me of a story my friend from England told me when came to visit during her tour of the US. She had spent some time in the East Coast/the South before heading west and in one of the Southern states, she and her friend (who was travelling with her for that leg of her journey) were both told that their accents sounded just like the American accent of that particular region. The man who was telling them this thought that they were native and not foreign tourists!
Seirei no Moribito / Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit Directed by Kenji Kamiyama, and created by Production I.G. This show probably has the best backgrounds out of any anime series I’ve seen. It’s basically feature film worthy art for 26 episodes.
