Elliot Gay: ''I love science fiction.
Ever since my first encounter with Gainax's Gunbuster back in the day, I've had a soft spot for scifi anime. The technobabble, space battleships, giant robots; I'm immediately willing to give something a shot if it has one or more of these elements.
Enter Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet (aka Suisei no Gargantia), Gen Urobuchi's (Fate/Zero, Madoka Magica) latest TV anime. Directed by Kazuya Murata (FMA: The Sacred Star of Milos), it's a project with some undeniably big names behind it.
Production I.G has been throwing its full support behind the series, holding preview screenings and even handing out BDs of the first few episodes. It seems to me like they have a lot of faith in the series and want to get it in front of as many eyes as possible.''
