"Discovered Attack" offers more action, wonderful anime and information about the leading characters. We finally find out what Alvis is "carrying" deep within her little girl's soul when Lord Dio utters some strange phrase and Al begins to emit a strange white glow. It has something to do with "Last Exile". Finally, get see what "Last Exile" is.. or what we thing it is!!! Alex Rowe plays a deadly game of one upmanship with another highly interested bidder for "Last Exile". All the while, Claus and Lavie are in the race of their lives. Unbeknownest to them, they are decoys in the true race by Tatiana and Alistia. The Vanship commander and her trusted sidekick must destroy the power system of the underground city where the Vanship race is taking place. Will they succeed???
You must watch "Discovered Attack" to find out what happens to our three heroes and the others who are touched by these young people.
I particularly like the fact that Claus is an impressive pilot and will no doubt have a significant role in proving himself and yet at the same time has not been shown as the typical 15 to 18 year-old-kid that ends up single-handedly saving everybody. Visually, GONZO did an amazing job of turning this into artwork. The battles are full of detail, they are long enough ... to keep your attention and wonder, and they don't turn into a storyline killer. This comes in at number 3 right now as far as my favorite animes (1. Evangelion, 2. Cowboy Bebop) and in conclusion all i have to say is that April 6th is FAR too long to wait for the 3rd volume of this anime.
A bit of background: The world is comprised of warring nations, each compeating under strict rules laid out by a seemingly omnipotent Guild. Stuck in the middle of this are two youths, working as air couriers to fund their racing ambitions. Before they know it, they are swept up in events beyond their control...
Sound familiar? It should. Last Exile employs a variety of standard anime tropes. There is the dark, silent comander, the plucky female side kick, strange power sources, even the 'child with strange powers'. What makes Last Exile so fascinating is that you do not care about how cliche it seems. You want to know what happened next. You demand to know! You can't get enough of the beautiful visuals, the excelent (Nipponese) voice acting, everything.
So do I recomend this DVD? Absolutely.
If you are new to anime, I suggest you start with "Last Exile". There is no better example of the art form available.
