Last Exile -Ginyoku no Fam- – 09.5
Boring recap episode is boring…
You’ll have to forgive me if I don’t send a lot of words to their noble deaths in describing this episode, which should have been titled “We Spent Too Much on All Those CGI Battle Scenes and the Creditors Are Still Out There”. I don’t begrudge Gonzo a little belt-tightening, given their financial condition and what they’ve spent (thank goodness) on making this show look good, but the ep pretty much speaks for itself – it’s clips of the first nine episodes (and sorry, no preview).
The only new stuff was really footage of Gisey in her cabin, writing a letter to her father, and eventually Millia joining in to help. The bottom line was that Gisey was totally in the wrong and completely selfish in her spat with Fam, and she’s very sorry she made Fam feel bad. And finally, we get a brief touch-base with Gisey’s Dad, who declares he’s on the way to check up on “those unruly girls”. So look forward to a visit from Atamora soon.
