Who’s My Enemy? – Suisei no Gargantia Episode 10

Suisei no Gargantia 10 Confused Ledo [Suisei no Gargantia Episode 9]

After last week’s revelations, our intrepid hero Ledo is left in a state of confusion. Pinion is seeing dollar signs with the destruction of the Whalesquid. And Amy is still shedding tears over the departure her boy crush. What twist does this week show us?

With the annihilation of the Whalesquid, Pinion is free to pillage the lab. And in his scavenging, he finds weapons. Not your typical projectile weapons, but directed energy cannons and the like. And With Pinion’s “invitation” to all that could hear him, pirates become easy prey. But with the obvious death flags and the like being raised, It’s obvious his success wont last for long. A measure of doom is heading his way sooner rather than later. It’s sad that this show couldn’t find a more subtle way to write these scenes.

Ledo’s return to the surface brings his feet to solid ground, but not his emotions. He his a complete wreck. Being enlightened on the history of the conflict he has spent his entire life fighting has left him in disarray. The fact that they are “human” contradicts his education. I find this fascinating. Just a few episodes ago, Ledo had no issues wiping out a pirate task force that was identified as his enemy without so much as blinking. But when his archenemy is revealed to be a human instead of a space creature, he has a problem?

And to drive one more nail into what’s left of Ledo’s emotional state, Chamber receives a familiar transmission. Riding on the ship of what appears to be a boat of religious zealots is none other than the mecha of his former commander. It had been obvious that at some point the Alliance was going to catch up with Ledo. But it only being a single mecha makes the situation interesting. How much longer has he been on Earth? Who is he traveling with? It all becomes just one more odd twist in a show that is all over the place.

    I almost wouldn’t be surprised if Pinion did get animated next episode with dollar signs in place of pupils. I don’t think the man’s stupid so much as thoughtlessly reckless (not to mention completely lacking in any kind of subtlety). This episode had me wondering whether or we’ll get delivered a solid character death in this series… if we do, my bets are on Pinion.

      I think we’ll get a good character death sooner, rather than later. Maybe that will be the key to pushing Ledo over the edge. And Pinion would be an excellent candidate. But, you really never know with this show. Sometimes it hit just the right notes, other times, it’s just retarded.

    Religious zealots and supremely powerful mecha are not a good mix. I think Ledo will be put in a very interesting situation now.
