Storyline

It's the dawn of the Golden Age of Aviation on planet Prester, and retro-futuristic sky vehicles known as vanships dominate the horizon. Claus Valca - a flyboy born with the right stuff - and his fiery navigator Lavie are fearless racers obsessed with becoming the first sky couriers to cross the Grand Stream in a vanship. But when the high-flying duo encounters a mysterious girl named Alvis, they are thrust into the middle of an endless battle between Anatoray and Disith - two countries systematically destroying each other according to the code of chivalric warfare. Lives will be lost and legacies determined as Claus and Lavie attempt to bring peace to their world by solving the riddle of its chaotic core. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

In the theme song, the only main character that isn't featured is Luciola. Although it is thought that Queen Delphine does not appear either, she does towards the end of the series when there is a slight change to the animation during the theme song. This occurs right after the line "...I will be the light." She is visible for a split second. See more »

An Amazing Application of Style and Plot
19 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Last Exile" was capable of doing things that other series just can't. Not only does it bring more emphasis towards the romanticized sci-fi genre of Victorian-era steam tech, but it does it in a way that exudes its concepts with ascetically pleasing designs. The animation itself is even given a certain color tone to add to the whole "Age of Invention" feel of it.

As I noted before, it also shows an incredibly well-conceived world. Wars are performed in a traditional fashion of steam-armed musketeers, dog fighters in lighter-than-air ships, couriers, and an aged but still-present caste system. The character's storyline equally are full-fleshed. Some of the more minor characters stray into stereotypes, but it never becomes so blatant that it sticks out and sours this combination. There is a rushed feel towards the series in the end and I feel it would have been nice if it could have been expanded into more than 26 episodes, but it still performs the ending in a way that does not sour the series.

If you like Victorian Era science fiction, and even if you don't like anime, I might recommend this to you, simply because it is a series well made enough to be enjoyable for more than just animation quality and foreign dialogue.
