Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet

In the distant future, a planet covered almost entirely by oceans, known as Earth, grows in space. Ledo, a boy who has known nothing but fighting all his life, saw the sea there for the first time. On its vast, faintly green waters, men organize huge naval fleets and live modest but active lives. Due to language and cultural barriers, Ledo lives as a lonely foreigner... but he's not alone. Ledo is just beginning his days on this green planet, asking what he must do to survive here, and what he is living for.

Following the battle against the Hideauze in space, Kugel and Striker got stranded on Earth just like Ledo. Meanwhile, a young girl called Linaria is being pursued by her sisters who intend to dispose of her after their deceased father nominated her as the leader of their pirate fleet. Kugel drives the attackers away and Linaria, believing that Kugel is a god, asks for his help to regain control of her fleet. Months later, Kugel leads the fleet as a figurehead for Linaria until her sisters decide to dispose of him by provoking some whalesquids to attack. Realizing that the whalesquids are in fact Hideauze, he wipes out their nest and claims that mankind had fallen from grace by treating the Hideauze as gods. Some time later, Linaria dies from a disease and by her own interpretation of her last words Striker convices Kugel that killing the sick members of the fleet is the best way to improve it, just like the Galactic Alliance does. When Linaria's elder sister attempts to replace her as Kugel's herald, he kills her instead and throws both sisters' bodies in the sea. Assuming control of the fleet and slowly dying from the same disease that killed Linaria, Kugel decides to rule it with an iron grip, believing it will eventually lead it to prosperity.

The Gargantia comes across an abandoned, derelict fleet and Ledo joins a small group sent there to investigate it while looking for treasures. Amy and her friends sneak aboard their ship and end up joining the search party. Upon finding an old picture, Ridget realizes that the fleet used to be where her childhood friend Storia used to live after she left the Gargantia seven years ago with her boyfriend Ritona. Upon checking up the main ship, Pinion concludes that the fleet's inhabitants were forced to abandon it after the main engine was broken beyond repair and the group returns to the Gargantia empty handed, except for Ridget who kept the picture for herself.
