Product Description

Soaring adventure and high-flying heroism fill the skies in Last Exile - Fam - The Silver Wing, a thrilling new chapter in the Last Exile saga!

Years ago, humanity abandoned the ruined Blue World. Generations later, with the planet again capable of sustaining life, mankind returned. In the skies above the reborn world, rebellious young Fam and her best friend Giselle make their living as Sky Pirates. Atop sleek Vespa Vanships, the girls dart fearlessly through the clouds, capturing and selling airborne battleships for profit. It’s a life of care-free swashbuckling – until the Ades Federation attacks. The only nation to remain on Blue World during humanity’s exile, The Ades Federation wages war against those who returned only after the planet’s darkest days had passed. When Fam and Giselle rescue a princess from the clutches of the rampaging Ades armada, they join the young royal’s battle to save her Kingdom from destruction – and undertake the impossible mission of uniting humanity in peace.

The Limited Edition sku comes in a collectible art box and contains a 16 page art booklet.

Review

The creative team remains strong: Koichi Chigira, Makoto Kobayashi, and Range Murata deliver an aerial adventure that is epic in scope, personal in focus, and bursting with visual imagination; a spectacular series that is never so busy showing off that it forgets to entertain. --Anime News Network

    The world of Last Exile is one of the more interesting anime realms that I have come across and the original series remains a favorite of mine. The mix of steam punk and sound story-telling draw you in and make you love the stage and feel for the characters on it.

    Fam, the Silver Wing looked to be an exciting continuation of that world, but it falls distressingly short. The primary problem comes in the narrative inconsistency and the rather pathetic characters. In what is otherwise a compelling story about empire and conflict - a story dripping in moral implications - the naivete of the protagonist and the nonsensical resolutions of poor moral choices make this almost unwatchable at times. There is nothing worse than having a show try to get you to feel bad for characters engaging in genocide. And it takes a good third of the series to fully explain how this timeline and the prior series ultimately relate, which is supremely confusing.

    But for all that, the visuals are impressive, the narrative world is the same, and most of my favorite characters from the original series make great cameos. So I can't totally dislike this. But a word of caution to those who loved the original Last Exile: the experience just isn't the same.

    Frankly, I loved the original Last Exile and mourned the possible loss of Dio as well as the death of the Captain. Now we come to Fam, the Silver Wing and the confusion sets in. I had hoped for an explanation of Dio's escape from death, but there was none. Then we hear that former planet inhabitants have been coming in from the hourglass shaped world for hundreds of years, taking over territory that the inhabitants who never left earth have been working to unite and rebuild. It's confusing because there is no apparent explanation of the time frame in which the story is being set. When did the Anatore-Disith folks return? Why do they all seem to be the same age as in the original story? SPOILER: Why is one of the two leading characters in the previous story in a wheelchair asking whether he'll ever fly again? I watched the complete series twice, just in case I had missed something; however, I don't believe I did. So timeline confusion was a big negative for me along with lack of information about familiar characters who just seemed to pop up from nowhere. The look of the film, the backgrounds and battles was just as good as before, but what is with the overly cutesy little girls who looked more like dolls that real people. This version, sadly, seemed to be dumbed down but, I won't tell you not to buy it. I did because I'm a fan of Last Exile.

    Almost [85%] as good as the original! That's actually saying quite a lot, as the original is rated almost perfect in my book.

    I really enjoyed watching this, and I think I finished it in 4 sittings (^_^). If you're a LE or Range Murata fan, this should be enjoyable. Without putting in any spoilers, I'm glad that some of my favorite characters are back in this series, whilst still providing a [slightly] different story.

    Not too much in terms of extras, but the reversible covers are always sweet, since they made such beautiful covers for the Japanese releases. The included tiny little art book is nice as well - although it just makes me want to go get the real ones.

    I only listen in the original language, so I can't comment on the dubs.

    I enjoyed season one quite a bit, in season two, I feel the animation is marginally improved, and the story line compelling. Some of the previous characters make cameos, but it's pretty much all new characters. Dio and Tatiana Wesla are the most significant holdovers. If you liked season one, I doubt you'd be disappointed by season two. Looking forward to season three! This is my second favorite anime series after Cowboy Bebop.

    Ends in a predictable all female cast anime style way.

    If you are a fan of the series, watch this for sure. In some ways its much better than the first. It also fills in some bits n pieces of what happened after the first ended. But where Fam fails is in the fact most of the cast is all female and the writers don't get creative with it. How characters react to things gets beyond predictable. They use tired out lines about stopping fighting and war...then when someone acts like you'd expect a person to do, everyone is horrified. Moments like: oh no, how could you take revenge on those who murdered so many people?!! You must be more evil than them! Oh how terrible you must be!! It really gets on your nerves later in the series because it just exposes the weaknesses in the characters even more.

    Case in point, pay attention to Dian. She is the only character in the entire series who actually stays true to her character and doesn't compromise on it. Fam's head is always in the clouds and often spews idealistic nonsense. She is decent at first but as the worn out girl anime story arcs progress, it gets old. She is just too generic. If you've seen Bodacious Space Pirates or Symphogear, you've seen Fam. The rest of the characters only continue on into the generic.

    Unfortunately this show aired during seasons where a lot of shows were all girl casting. This is likely where some of the disgust comes from as you get tired of watching the same generic characters over and over.

    It is unfortunate with this show. The world and the setting is perfect. Huge battles take place and will keep you watching. Much more than the first show. If the weakness in the characters and story can be gotten over, it would get 5 stars in a heartbeat.
