When the good guy gets captured by the villain and then the villain explains his/her plan in detail to the good guy and then leaves without killing him because how else could the good guy escape and also we need a boss fight at the end of the movie/game.
Why do you even capture him in the first place? Just kill him on the spot so there's no way he can stop your evil plan later.
@cloudenvy@dochaus : what's that thing again, gargantuan... whatever? anyways, I'll probably get around to it eventually.... my backlog of anime is about 30-something series to get around to watching. (Koihime Mosou series, anyone?)
It's an anime about a space soldier dude who gets thrown through a wormhole and ends up on Earth, which people left because it ran into another ice age. The coordinates were apparently lost a bajillion years ago, and now Earth is habitable though practically everything is water. It's not been particularly original so far, but it does some stuff way better than most anime nowadays.
Gen Urobuchi, the scriptwriter has mentioned that the big theme is "finding your place in the world" and the anime is specifically targeted towards people who are trying to get into the job market.
Also: Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet
For example: belly dancing
Don't get me wrong, even though the subtlety of the fanservice is slowly fading away, I like Gargantia a lot actually. The way they placed the theme into the setting is well done. Red (or Ledo) is now in a place which he knows very little about and now he has to learn how to fit into this new world. Just like how a freshly graduated student enters the life of an adult. Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but I would like to think this is how it is.
