YMMV / Ultraman Gaia

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome:
    • Gamu schooling the Ace Pilots in how to properly operate their fighters, something they weren't very competent at prior, due to the simple fact he invented the tech they use.
    • Gamu figuring out a way to counter Mezard on their way back to base and having a fully fleshed out plan and method to force it into the physical plan where it can be attacked.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Episode 35 has a group of Dumb Crooks find the monster of the week's egg and decide to hold it for ransom, pretending to be aliens. They accomplish this by barely changing the name of the iron working company they work for. The funniest part is GUARD plays the entire situation completely straight, unaware it's a scam.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Chiaki Konaka goes into Kaiju-writing business again three years later.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The relationship between Gamu and Atsuko is this towards most fans, since they never had a resolution in the end despite a lot of plot buildup in-between them. Such examples can be shown on their similarly Friendless Background, Atsuko growing from a Tsundere towards a more warming personality to Gamu and a minor Clingy Jealous Girl moment in episode 42. The OV (taking place sometime after final) has Gamu resuming his life as a university student and Atsuko returns to her Tsundere mode again.
