There, a pilot named Ledo and his humanoid mobile weapon, Chamber crash and are discovered by the fleet known as Gargantia where they meet Amy and her friends. Ledo’s mission is to destroy alien beings known as “Hideauze” who pretty much look like octopuses and squids. His strict military upbringing causes him trouble as the fleet is more upbeat and relaxed than what he was used to. The original series is currently ongoing as of this moment and premiered last April 2013.
