  • Last Exile, another world based on the 19th century was in the middle of a war!

    This reminds me of the time when Grand-dad told me he used to be in WWII (World War II). He was a soldier in the British Army. He won many medals. How cool is that? Anyway I love this series because in some ways it reminds me of my English and Portuguese heritage. It makes me feel proud to be a Euro-American (half European, half American; a quarter English, a quarter Welsh, a quarter American, and a quarter Portugese). So like I was saying this show rocks, but I really wanted to now if Dio really did die in the final series, or did he somehow survive? I guess I'll never know.moreless
  • Last Exile is an excellent show that really shows imagination, and a supurb level of animation quality, combined with great characters, and a cool world to top it all off.

    Last Exile is an anime show about Claus, and Lavie, two vanship pilots who live in a creative world filled woth flying ships. The whole premise of the show is flying mixed with a bit of steam-era flare. It is not as widely recognized as other shows, but is just as good, if not better. Last Exile can be slow at times, but thats only when there is no action going on, and the plot is advancing. The animation is crisp, and extremely clean. The characters are fun, the music is very engrossing, and the show is full of imaginationIt is a rare gem in the anime world that derserves a good fanbase.moreless

    Great anime that invents incredible new machinery and combines the inventions well with the new but well formulated political system in the show. Guilds belong to medieval system and nation states did not exist when guild did. So Last Exile combined the two systems in such a great way that you discover something very interesting and influential in every episode. Beside that the technological background of the show is also very interesting. You can see the show as if some technologies are much more advanced and some that seems to be very common for this world have not been deveoloped at all. For example you get floating battleships but there are no wired communication system! Last word is that the anime (although with obvious Miyazaki influence) is very well written with its story and its background. And great theme music by the way.moreless
  • It took me a while to get into. I like it, but you have to give it a chance

    8.8
    It is a show set in a strange future, full of flying vehicles, in such abundence that kids can have them. The water is mostly low quality and the hierarchy keeps the best for themselves. Our protagonists join a feared crew, after the captain saves them from computerized fighter drones, while they were trying to deliver him a package. They end up a part of they crew, fighting in their van type fighters. The show was a very involved plot and I was hesitant to give the show a chance, but I caught a time where the series was just starting on TechTv\'s anime unleashed. I watched a couple episodes and was hooked. Overall I beleive it may have run a bit to longmoreless
  • A very entertaining and beautiful steampunk animation adventure, albeit a little too long for its own good.

    7.5
    reminiscent of WW2 era with a German-influenced world (main character Klaus?), particularly with a focus on flying planes, and also other things such as \\\'chivalry\\\' in battles between airships. The series starts out very promising, with an incredibly original world, focusing on two young orphan teenagers who fly vanships delivering messages for a living. Through various circumstances, they happen across a high-ranked mission of safely delivering a little girl and get involved with an airship led by a mysterious captain. In typical fashion they end up getting involved in a world war, fighting against a mysterious overseeing nation known as The Guild, and a mysterious artifact known as the EXILE.



    The series can be described as a blend of fantasy sci-fi, or probably more accurately steampunk, with it\\\'s WW2 era look blended with airships and robots and such.



    Overall, I would say the series would have been much better if the number of episodes had been halved, and the story made less convoluted. One strong point though is the fact that the ending really does explain a lot, such as the nature of the world they live in and also explains how you can have technology such as air travel/hover/robots co-existing with a Victorian type of society.moreless
