It's nice to have Gargantia back, though the return isn't a matter of too much consequence.
telling the children of Gargantia ghost stories about abandoned ships (ones that Ledo took all too seriously). Ridget, Bellows and Pinyon head off to investigate - and the girls tag along for the purposes of the plot.
Storia. There they meet the local ops hunk Retna, who saves Ridget when she slips and falls off a beam and breaks his ankle in the process - and seemingly falls in love with Storia, who nurses him back to health. There's nothing wrong with this, per se, but we aren't given much reason to care one way or the other. Who are Storia and Retna that we should give a damn? Yes, Storia was Ridget's friend and she missed her when she stayed behind, but I think it's asking a lot of an audience to feel any buy-in for a relatively trivial plot about people who we don't even know. And as is pretty much the standard for Gargantia, the humor is very hit-and-miss - and since none of it involves Chamber, there aren't many hits.
