Last Exile ~Fam the Silver Wing~
Having aired back in 2003, still fondly recall the original “Last Exile” series which was a refreshing experience, not only due to its character art style based on Range Murata’s unique designs but the different atmosphere of the show.
Almost a decade after the original, the same creative team returns to work on “ラストエグザイル～銀翼のファム～” with character designer Range Murata, series director Chigira Koichi, animation studio Gonzo and music composition by Kuroishi Hitomi.
The first episode was quite good, so am confident that “Last Exile ~Fam the Silver Wing~“ could become as great as the original of which it mimicked the unique atmosphere and styling well.
The animation was good and the mix between the 2D characters and 3D airships was flawless (save for a single scene). Was surprised to hear Toyosaki Aki voice the bubbly pilot Fam, whose personality is the polar opposite of the original series lead character Claus. Toyosaki Aki also voiced Yui from “K-ON!” and Chitose in last season’s “Yuru Yuri”.
Fam’s friend Giselle is voiced by Yuuki Aoi who previously voiced Tooru in “A Channel”, Victorique in “Gosick” and Madoka in “Puella Magi Madoka Magica”. Kayano Ai who voices Milia is also performing as Inori in this season’s “Guilty Crown”.
