New character and PV contest for upcoming Gargantia OVA


A new character reveal and 300,000 yen on the line!

Gargantia on the Vendurous Planet is a series that I grow more fond every time I think back on it. The amazing art design, fun characters and the intricately crafted world left me wanting to see more adventures with Ledo and Amy -- which was then promptly fulfilled when a two-part OVA was announced just recently.

Titled Suisei no Gargantia ~Meguru Kōro, Haruka~, information is still scarce, but recent updates to the official website for Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet gives us some extra little tidbits. It appears that Ledo is continuing his service his Yunboro duties for Bellow's salvage shop. The new character that was shown in the official promo art was revealed to be Reema, a 13-year-old new recruit of Amy's messenger team, and she will likely play an important role in the OVA. 

The official website also announced a PV contest with a grand prize of 300,000 yen (roughly 3,000 USD). They want an original promotional video set to the opening theme of Gargantia, and upload it onto Nico Nico Douga, sporting the tag "Suisei no Gargantia PV Contest" no later than June 30. The materials for applicants to use will be available for download between April 1 - 30.

Suisei no Gargantia ~Meguru Kōro, Haruka~ is scheduled to come out this fall. What new stories and mysterious await the cast? If only I had a Chamber of my own to put me into cryostasis for six months.
