Of course, it came naturally: from previous reviews, you can probably get a sense of my opinion on sci-fi and big robots and the likes. Safe to say it’s not a positive one. However, I was delighted to find that Gargantia had far more to offer than the endless outer space pew-pew battles that I was expecting. What I found instead...
