From Anime News Network:
The story begins in the distant future in the far reaches of the galaxy. The Human Galactic Alliance has been constantly fighting for its survival against a grotesque race of beings called "Hidiaazu." During an intense battle, the young lieutenant Ledo and his humanoid mobile weapon Chamber are swallowed up into a distortion of time and space.
Waking from his artificially induced hibernation, Ledo realizes that he has arrived on Earth, the planet on the lost frontier. On this planet that was completely flooded by the seas, people live in fleets of giant ships, salvaging relics from the seas' depths in order to survive. Ledo arrives on one of the fleets called Gargantia. With no knowledge of the planet's history or culture, he is forced to live alongside Amy, a 15-year-old girl who serves as a messenger aboard the Gargantia fleet. To Ledo, who has lived a life where he knows nothing but fighting, these days of peace continue to surprise him.

i really see a loy of potential in this manga
the art is great
the characters are fresh and interesting - especially the main character -
the story isnt what i thought would be a typical and predictable mecha/space warriors defeating aliens.
the story takes an unexpected change at the beginning and makes you wonder whats gonna happen next which i think is very necessary in a story.

the main character is thrown into a unkown and foreign world with different or what we call a normal environment and has to somehow adapt
the time skip just makes everything more exciting
