Gargantia on the Verduous Planet: Episode 10 Review by Skie

Gargantia on the Verduous Planet: Episode 10 Review by Skie

Gargantia’s had a pretty even keel in its story up until this latest round of episodes, where it’s added several twists to the mix that have left me wondering just where this show will go.
