Gargantia vs. Valverave?

I haven't watched either show, so I have no opinion. But if they manage to meet and fight, which one would win?

1 Gargantia, at this point.

I put this down primarily due to PEBCAK.

2 Context?  What shows are these from?

They're both running this season, and I though it interesting that there were two "mysterious mechs show up in a peaceful place" shows running at the same time.

4 Well, Valvrave is more of a standard Gundam setup, while Gargantia is definitely the inversion on it.

Valvrave is almost turning out more like season 1 of Railgun, oddly enough.  But it's hard to see where precisely its going. Probably because the main writer for the series isn't called Gen the Butcher for nothing, yet it's been pretty straight forward (and amazingly logical) so far.  Hopefully it keeps up.

Oh, and Gargantia will be good top rotation fodder.

5 Gargantia.  The character design is really beautiful.  If you want screencap of pretty girls, there's plenty.
The space battle in the first half of episode 1 actually makes sense.

Episode 5 of Gargantia does have some decent eye candy.

Which should be compared with the insulting nature of Valvrave's fanservice episode, which is also 5.  Not really any decent screencaps, except for a possible wet blouse over bra, a school swimsuit or two, etc.  Not worth it.  There must be some marketing research on the timing of fanservice episodes.  But do we really need a 5 minute music video consisting of high school stupidity, Valvrave?

I'm guessing that Valvrave won't quite as much of a Guilty Crown trainwreck, but I suspect it'll be close.

7 Gen Urobuchi (Madoka Magica) is writing Gargantia, not Valvrave.

Peter Payne has been posting some fan service posters. It looks like Gargantia might be the replacement for Senran Kagura that you were looking for. Character designs were done by a hentai artist (Shoujo Material).

8 And, with Gargantia, the end cards haven't been mentioned, either.
