Last Exile -Ginyoku no Fam- – 07

「Weak square」

I enjoy episodes like this one, where Fam’s plucky cheerfulness is mercifully muted, and the characters are reminded of the life-and-death nature of the game they’ve chosen to play.

Last Exile -Ginyoku no Fam- – 06

「Over step」

Psychopathic, eyepatch-wearing commanders aside, I’m still wondering how seriously we should take the threat of an empire that has eight ships stolen by a little girl so easily that the thefts didn’t even make it onto the screen…

We’re five episodes in, and Last Exile is starting to settle into a comfort zone.

Last Exile -Ginyoku no Fam- – 04

「Dubious move」

The fourth episode of Last Exile: Fam tries awfully hard to please. I think it would be well served to try a little less hard as it develops.

Last Exile -Ginyoku no Fam- – 02

「Fool’s mate」

After two episodes, I really have no idea what Gonzo is trying to accomplish with this continuation of the Last Exile saga. My sincere hope is that they do.

Last Exile -Ginyoku no Fam- – 01

「Open file」

I was sorely tempted to title this post “(at long) Last Exile: Ginyoku no Fam”…

Last Exile -Ginyoku no Fam- – 00

I don’t normally post about episode 0 specials, but seeing as this one featured a lot of impressive-looking footage and will likely go unsubbed, I figured I had to chime in about the series that marks GONZO’s big return. It never hurts when it features Toyosaki Aki, Yuuki Aoi, and Kayano Ai — the voices of the three heroines — plus the short version of Sakamoto Maaya’s “Buddy” music video.
