Last Exile ~Ginyoku no Fam~

Glad to see Tatiana’s still quite herself. And I missed Alis too \o/.

So… capturing Silvius didn’t quite turn out to be that easy after all. I admit I was pretty damn surprised when she went underwater. They’ve sure adapted well to the new world in just two years. Wonder who built the ship though. Did they take the old Silvana onboard Exile and then modified it?

Liking how Gonzo is using back the old music from Last Exile too. Using the opening of “A New World has Come” has got a poetic ring to it in the syntax it was applied to this episode. I can’t wait for the OST for this show too, with all the Hitomi inserts.

Also, yuri flags trippin’ everywhere!

DIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Oh man, for a premiere episode of a very nostalgic series, Ginyoku no Fam sure knows how to hit all the right buttons.

Vanship action? Check.
Dio flying upside down? Check.
Immelman turn? Check.
The birthday song? Check.
hitomi vocals? Check.

Hell, even Exile showed up out of nowhere casually. And Dio even recited part of the Exile poem too. Goddamnit, Gonzo.

Even with all the references to the original show, the real focus of the episode was on introducing the main cast. Fam is as I expected from all the previews I’ve watched… hell even probably a little bit more wilder than I expected, but god damn producers sure know how to give her some pandering moments as well *coughbeginningcough*. Giselle makes for a perfect foil to Fam, while Millia is a little prideful, but that’s to be expected I guess.

The really interesting thing though is how quite a number of the elements from the first show are in the series already. From the OP (which coincidentally feels so Sunrise…), it’s clear that members of the Guild are going to play quite a big role in the series, with one fella already pegged as a major antagonist from the looks of it. Claudia tech is very much still in use.. and of course the fact that Exile itself appeared so early too. Then there’s Alviss herself returning…. with Kana-tan as her seiyuu too. Goddamnit again, Gonzo.

Overall though, I think they got things right so far with Ginyoku no Fam so far, but will it be able to sustain this through 2 cours? I guess we’ll have to see.
