Chamber was the real hero of the show.
If the March OVA doesn't have CHAIMBAH in it I'm going to cry.
>Chamber: battles like a badass, makes detailed and reasoned arguments as to why it's correct to fight against the whalesquid
>Amy and her cripple brother: "Y-you shouldn't fight, it's mean... j-just be yourself..."
I'm all for giving peace a chance but this stupid show didn't even try to make a good argument for it. So limp. I hated this shit even more than the weak SoL episodes in the middle.
I think you missed the whole point of the show. CHAMBAH was edgemasters past, his culture, who he was before getting seduced by the the stupid sexy shipgirls. CHAMBAH was at the same time a symbol of edgemasters value to the shippeople as well as what kept him from being a peaceful person.
When CHAMBAH is ranting he's showing edgemaster that the truth is that sometimes you need to kill a few fucking squidpeople in life. That was the entire point of the show.
If you're wondering why Chamber was formerly all for eradicating Whalesquid and by the end acquiesced to Leto's desire for coexistence, I figured it was because he analyzed the ability of somebody from the Galactic Alliance like Leto to coexist with the dramatically different culture of Gargantia and other fleets and projected the potential of that with the knowledge that Hideauz were in fact Humans who had chosen a dramatically different culture and way of life and decided that maybe technology dependent Humans and biology dependent Humans could coexist better than he initially projected.
I swear Gargantia brings out the /pol/ in /a/.
That wasn't the point of the show, it was never Chamber's point either, and it certainly wasn't what I was complaining about. Nor am I inclined to take a purely symbolic angle just to excuse characters spouting vague drivel.
Chamber, cut off from the rest of the military society, essentially readjusted its priorities to its pilot's circumstances.
