Synopsis

The story is set on the fictional world of Prester, where its inhabitants use aerial vehicles known as vanships as a means of transportation. On this world which is divided in eternal conflict between the nations of Anatoray and Disith, sky couriers Claus Valca and Lavie Head must deliver a girl who holds the key to uniting the two factions. Although Prester itself is not a representation of Earth, it features technology reminiscent of nineteenth-century Europe at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution. Many of its designs were also inspired by Germany's technological advances during the interwar period.

TL;DR Review

Last Exile is both a beautifully drawn anime, and a beautiful world to be in. The vibrant and feel of this world remind me a bit of Ghibli style. I love the back story of this world. Though there are conflicts and wars, the pace of the show is rather slow, which isn’t a bad thing. It gives you time to take in what is going on.

I highly recommend this series to fan that like a fully realized world and not just some backdrop of some action scene. Last Exile contains graphic violence and mild suggestive themes/dialogs.
