Thanks to Bevel’s question (from last episode), Ledo is trying to find a job that he can do. Turns out, he has no other ability other than his combat skill, and no one in Gargantia can give him a job.
Then the entire fleet stops, it’s calm period. A time when the ocean is calm, everyone stops their routine work and have a break; electricity is temporarily cut off; repair and maintenance tasks take place. Next we have… a beach episode ! Yes, right, a beach episode in a water world.
I find it funny that Ledo can actually say the yakiniku is delicious. Considering few episodes ago he still refer it as “dead animal’s body”.
