I feel bad now for not having watched Gargantia when it came out. It's a nice show.
Also, Chamber is bro-tier.

I will admit, I first watched the show because it's going to be in Z3.2, and I wanted context.
I'm glad I did, and honestly it's not like there's much battle-wise one can really adapt from the show since it's so laid-back. You could show every fight and it would probably only take up 3 or 4 stages at best.

That's why I started on it, too. Ended up watching the entire series (and the two BD episodes) in two days, last week. I really wish I'd been following it with a friend of mine while it was airing.
There WAS a interstellar war going on.
As Chamber states in one episode, he's thousands of years away form anything Ledo used to know.
To be fair, that doesn't necessarily mean the war is over. But that doesn't mean the war is still going either.
It's an awfully good thing that SRW Z is a cluster fuck of multidimensional malarkey.

They showed a map of Earth in the background.
Well, engaging in semantics, he is still right to use that term of measurement.
Hypothetically, it would take Chamber and Ledo thousands of years to return to Alliance space without some sort of warp drive or wormhole.
He wrote the first and last episode, and was in charge of overseeing the rest of the scripts. You can tell where he left people to their own devices and where executive meddling happens (some of the fanservice in particular is very un-Urobuchi-ish fanservice).
I wouldn't call it bad but Gargantia was a "good" show that could have been easily been a "great" show. It can be frustrating to watch because of this.
Just finished it. I wasn't a fan of Urobuchi's obsession with shitting on utilitarianism that he puts in everything, but I digged the almost Iron Giant-esque message of choosing what to do with your life.
