posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Conclusion of Ledo's story opens in Japanese theaters on April 4

The official website for the Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet anime unveiled a new theatrical teaser trailer for the second and final volume of the original video animation (OVA) Suisei no Gargantia: Meguru Kōro, Haruka on Friday.

Text: The final battle is beginning.
Reema: Muzzle, I might be putting you in danger.
Reema: Is that OK? No? Which?
Ridget: An attack!?
Text: Gargantia is under attack
Ledo: Eight enemies confirmed!
Voice: I give permission to act!
Ledo: What is going on!? Just what are you!?
Reema: I have something to ask of you. I want you to come with me.
Amy: Ledo!
Ledo: This is... No way...!
Reema: I was the only one who could move you. In order to survive, in order to become strong... I only had this path.
Ledo: Reema!
Reema: But even so... Isn't it weird? That me is starting to hate fighting.
Reema: I want you to convince Ledo to get away from the Gargantia!
Amy: Huh?
Reema: If you're with him, Amy, Ledo will surely come.
Amy: What should I do...? I don't know...! Ledo...

[Highlight white text to read spoilers] It has been a half a year since Chamber's heroic sacrifice. Ledo is living his new life with his companions aboard the Gargantia fleet, and he works diligently as a member of the salvage team working to recover bits and pieces of the previous age of human civilization. Reema, a girl who used to be a part of Cugel's fleet, then appears. Reema now studies under Amy as a messenger. After Ledo and Reema meet, Ledo reflects on his former life in the military and how the life he lives now aboard the Gargantia is completely different. Ledo is also awaiting the difficulties and crises that he knows the future will bring. With his bond with Chamber engraved on his heart, Ledo faces his future in the sky and in the sea.

The first part of the new OVA screened in 10 Japanese theaters on September 27. The second volume will then open in theaters on April 4.

The Blu-ray Disc with the first episode shipped on November 21, and the second Blu-ray Disc will ship on May 27. Each Blu-ray Disc retails for 7,500 yen (about US$75), and both releases are including English subtitles.

Crunchyroll streamed the television series as it aired, and Viz Media licensed the series for home video release with an English dub.
