Suisei no Gargantia Episode 4 - Ledo is Human

Sup guys! Today I'll be talking about the 4th episode of Suisei no Gargantia which shows Ledo establishing himself in the fleet along with some very interesting information.

Ledo begins to speak Japanese. He can only speak small phrases and the big ones he still has Chamber say but it's nice to see some progress here. Looks like he'll be able to speak the language fluently soon.

Throughout the episode, Ledo finds himself asking for information while telling us how his way of life is. His lifestyle is very narrow-minded. If you're weak, you're disposed of. If you can't fight, you're disposed of. If you aren't a capable person who shows results, you're disposed of.
They've been isolated like that since they were made into soldiers. Ledo doesn't even know what family is. This just shows how different the two lifestyles are. Ledo is a pure soldier who knows nothing of this.

He gets the most information from Bevel, Amy's little brother. As they continue to talk, he begins to understand just a little bit how different they are. He still can't comprehend as to why they live such an inefficient lifestyle.

Ledo also mentioned he's never seen the sea, rain, or other things like that which again shows how limited they are up in the Alliance.

The part that was probably the most interesting was when Ledo had that flashback with another boy who had the "flute" that Ledo has been unknowingly making. It really showed that Ledo was in fact, human no matter what the circumstances.

Overall, it was an interesting episode. The development of Ledo is slow, but it's there. You can really see him start to come into what it's like to be a human. He's comfortable now, but we all know it isn't going to stay like that. Whether it'll be another pirate attack or maybe an attack from space, Ledo will surely be fighting.

See you guys next episode!
