In the distant future, the human race is on the brink of destruction. Mankind, which now drifts in space aboard a massive, technologically-advanced base known as Avalon, is poised to launch one final, desperate attack against its enemy, the alien race Hideauze. It’s during this battle that Ledo, a mecha pilot, is thrown into a wormhole and sent to an unfamiliar place: Earth, the lost birthplace of humanity said to have turned to ice long ago. Having been saved by the inhabitants of the Gargantia, a fleet of ships that traverses the now-flooded planet, Ledo must come to terms with these primitive people with their backwards language and technology, learn to communicate, and try to find a way back home to his place in the sky.
It's an extreamly interesting premise, and it delivers. The story processes at a pretty decent clip where you have the struggle of the main character with landing in a life very different than the one he knew, and his struggle with coping. The artwork is very top-notch, and typical. There isn't anything in the way of amaizing, but the point I think is to progress the story effectively; which it did. The whole thing is about the characters rather than the plot. Not to say the plot isn't interesting. It is, but it's also somewhat cliché. In any case, I find myself wishing this were longer because it was so enjoyable. Cheers!
