The Galactic Alliance of Humanity is established in the far future, after the majority of humanity has fled Earth, to guide exploration and ensure the prosperity of humanity. To keep humanity from going extinct, an existential menace known as Hideauze causes an intergalactic conflict. Lieutenant Ledo, a 16-year-old member of the Galactic Alliance, enters the fight against the monsters with the help of an autonomous robot named Chamber. During the conflict, Ledo loses control and is ejected into outer space, where he crashes into a flooded Earth.
When a massive fleet of scavenging ships—Gargantia—comes upon Chamber in the ocean on the blue planet, they believe they’ve found something valuable. Ledo sneaks aboard and kidnaps Amy, a young messenger girl from Gargantia, believing their activities to be hostile. However, after learning the truth, he realizes that the people of Gargantia are not as dangerous as he had thought. At first, Ledo finds it difficult to adjust because he can’t speak with his fellow crew members in space. There is more to this ocean-covered planet than meets the eye, and his quiet days are going to be ended.

When Inaho Kaizuka, a high school senior, discovers a conspiracy to kill Princess Asseylum Vers Allusia of the Vers Empire, who had come to Earth in an attempt to mend relations between the empire and her homeland fifteen years before, she is shocked. The Martian armistice has been broken, and the Terrans are once again at war with the Martians. In order to put an end to the conflict once and for all, Inaho and his allies must now take on the Vers Empire.
