I discovered this wonderful anime series by accident. I was watching TV at my sister's house flipping the channels when on Tech TV I saw this anime show with flying battleships and characters wearing 19th century uniforms. After a few minutes I was drawn into this imaginary world, whether its a alternative universe or the future, is left up to the viewer. I am not a big fan of Japanese anime but I found the world being portrayed fascinating. I made the investment in purchasing the whole DVD collection, 26 episodes. This was one of my best purchases ever made. Last Exile takes place in an world divided between two human kingdoms, Anatoray and Disith, which are at war. The society and technology portrayed is a mish mash of different periods of the past. Most people seem to exist in a late 19th/early 20th century existence with hints of industrialization. The political system is an aristocracy with a Emperor ruling Anatoray with feudal lords, dukes, princes, etc. controlling territory and serving as leaders of the military. One of the creators, in an interview in the first DVD, mentioned how he was inspired by Weimar Germany period, 1919-1933. The movie does has a European feel to it. The aristocratic women dress in Renaissance outfits with the puffed out skirts and bodices while the aristocratic men and soldiers dress in military style 19th century uniforms. The nobility place great emphasis on honor and chivalry. But on this primitive foundation the people of this world called Prestar can fly in the skies using some type of magnetic levitation technology and its in the skies that the war between Anatoray and Disith is fought.Read more ›

To better explain the title of this review, every separate element of the anime Last Exile just works well. And when put together, it made for the perfect all-around anime. The story, the characters, the action, the music, and even this specific collection, the Range Murata edition, all of it is here and done with complete care and excellence.

To start, I'll begin with the story. It follows mostly two vanship couriers named Claus and Lavie, who are chasing their fathers' dreams of flying through the Grand Stream, a wind vortex that blows constant, swirling, hurricane-caliber winds. But because of a young girl named Alvis, who Claus and Lavie swear to protect, they are mixed into the ongoing war between the Anatory and the Disith, whose efforts for peace failed ten years before during Claus and Lavie's fathers' attempt at crossing the Grand Stream. In the background of this war are the Guild, a powerful people who controls the world with superior technology and their ability to move in and out of the Grand Stream at will. One ship, however, chooses not to follow anyone, and that is the Silvana.

During their journey, Claus and Lavie meet many interesting characters, and without all of these characters, this series definitely wouldn't have been as good. After Claus and Lavie, the other main characters are Alex, the captain of the Silvana, and Sophia, the first-officer of the Silvana. Alex's arch-enemy, Delphine, leads the Guild. Also involved is her younger brother Dio, a strange kind of free-spirit, along with his ever-present protector Lucciola. Tatiana and Alistair, Claus and Lavie's compatriot vanship pilots, lead the a raucous group of vanship mechanics, who are definitely meant as comic relief.

The outline of my review is as follows:

- brief storyline

- explanations about the `mysterious language' that is used in the series

- additional facts about the anime

- answer to the question of buying it or not and why

The storyline (Spoilers included).

I will try to give a general picture of the story and its main protagonists so that the reader will be able to grasp the main idea of these series without giving too much away.

The main story resolves around the main protagonists, Claus and Lavie. These are the children who fly a Vanship (an aircraft that resembles more the aircrafts of the First and Second World War) in order to deliver messages across the country; that is basically how the story starts. Their parents used to be best friends and Vanship pilots as well but died on a mission inside the Grand Stream - which was to deliver a ten stars message, so important was the message (and that is what the ten stars mean) that something like this never has occurred before (for obvious reasons I cannot get too much into the story or I will give too much away, I am sorry).

Then both of the main protagonists will get caught in the middle of a war going on between Anatoray and Disith, two nations that usually fight their battles in airships that resemble more the naval ships in the Middle Ages but the difference is that they are airships instead of sea ships. Over them is the Guild, which provides both nations with the necessary technology and makes sure that both nations follow specific rules, in other words they take advantage of all this war. The Guild's Queen is called Delphine and her brother Dio and his bodyguard Luciola will play a great part later on.

The Murata Range Complete Set Edition?
Mainly, it's the artwork on all of the packaging that is the attraction to the set. Theoretically, having the episodes stretched out onto more discs would allow for higher quality as well. I don't have a 4 disc set to compare against though, but when I was looking to purchase it, it was the... Read More

So what was Exile?
No, it was just a space ship. My DVD set came with a bit of a cross section and it said something about it being interdimensional. It's not really a scientology thing, if you look at the Greek writing they use it's like in ancient times they stumbled upon this ship and it brought the people out... Read More
