Last Exile ~Ginyoku no Fam~ 03

Last Exile ~Ginyoku no Fam~

Well, well. Now we’ve even got a ship of death named… Slyvius. Gonzo sure is pulling out all the stops on making this a tribute to the original Exile aren’t they?

I was really surprised to see that the Ades Federation is actually ruled by a loli. Looking more and more that the main theme of war is the original inhabitants vs the returners from Exile. Judging by the number of “moons” in the sky, it looks like there’s still five more Exiles to be “unlocked”, plus the one we know of that is controlled by Alviss. Ahh… I wonder if she’s on Slyvius.

That said, it’s incredible how Gonzo managed to flip the “evil” image of the Ades Federation by showing their motivations of the war. They have a genuine reason for the war, i.e. lack of sustainable resources, but it looks like the real trigger is related to Augusta’s late mother, Farahnaz. Remains to see what exactly caused her death until a war was waged for ten years or so.

Anyways, I’m glad Gonzo is making this show a lot more interesting that I expected from it, with the addition of the morally ambiguous themes plus doing actual world building for the Exile-verse. Already can’t wait for this Friday again!

    Well, the production did promise that episode 4 will tie the two series together, in more ways than one. It’s going to be a treat for old fans, but I’m not sure watchers coming into the series fresh will appreciate it at all.

    So, at the very least we’ll see both Tatiana and Alister next episode. It should be fun. While I’m expecting Fam to be owned hard by the folk from Anatoray, our heroine might have something up her sleeve… Or maybe Dio just happened to drop that little bit on purpose, hmm?

    Indeed. The fact that we saw the Exile from the first series in the very first episode when it’s stated that the returners have been around for many, many generations implies that it really was the “Last Exile”, i.e. the last one to return. Probably Anatole and Dysis sent an expedition on their Exile first and found the current state of the prevents them from returning, and decided to investigate further, inserting themselves into nations around the world. Not sure how that would jive with the homestead shown at the end of Last Exile, though.

    $10 Tatiana is related to the Sylvius(Captain, a vanship pilot for Sylvius, etc).
