    Default Last Exile -Fam, The Silver Wing-

    Beleaguered anime producer Gonzo has by way of its participation at the Tokyo Anime Fair announced its support for Ishiharas policies of anime censorship, and has also announced a continuation to its hit anime Last Exile in the form of a new series.

    Also announced was Nyanpire, a Hello Kitty-esque neko anime, which seems likely to either fail without trace or become a huge hit (presumably the former).

    Last Exiles conclusion left no obvious route for a continuation, so what form the anime will take is a mystery (it will however have a new cast) it seems likely Gonzo is grasping at straws by returning to its few successful original anime properties, particularly with the embarrassingly complete failure of such titles as Shangri-la (now not even left with a website).

    The announcement itself was quickly overshadowed by a barrage of criticism from anime fans unhappily noting that Gonzo has not withdrawn its participation from Ishiharas Tokyo Anime Fair in favour of the pro-freedom of speech Anime Contents Expo.

    Coming from the company responsible for animating the first season of Strike Witches, a show well in Ishiharas crosshairs, the decision to attend the event when most responsible publishers have withdrawn their support in protest seems particularly questionable.

    With TAF on the verge of being cancelled and likely to have its attendance figures eviscerated, the decision to support the event is also as questionable in terms of business acumen as it is ethically although Gonzo has already been driven into bankruptcy once, so it is hardly surprising to see it lacks either.

    so what r ur views?

    epic anime 1 season is enuff...

    I thought GONZO was dead following some lawsuit and financial issues.


    anyway GONZO anime have always been beautiful to look at. The best in the business followed closely by Madhouse.
    However, their shows always follow the trend of "fizzling out" near the end.
    And dont just take my word for it, look at every thing they did, including original works (Last Exile, Vandread, Afro Samurai, milfblade.......i mean Witchblade), manga adaptations (Gantz, chrono Crusade, Trinity Blood) and Light novel adaptations (Full Metal Panic).

    All of them saw a dramatic drop in animation quality and storytelling prowess near the end. As if the company splurged all they had in the first few episodes and were running out of resources and time by the end of the series.


    Last exile 2????

    I dont think so.

    But i wouldnt mind if they wanted to do a prequel.
    Like a ova chronicling the rise of Alex Rowe from a lowly pilot with vengence in his heart to the commander of his own ship waging a one man war against the Guild/

    indeed many aspects (dunno is it a correct word to use lol) of Last Exile left watcher really blur-ed... plus thanks to the many "fantastic" subs making some of it even more confusing lol. i use to collect, correct some comprehensive info n complied them into my own Last Exile "encyclopedia" (i was really into the series back then.. my NS days lol)

    Like wat the heck is the hidden golden ship all about?
    fr wat i understood its a big-ass migratory starship (mythological Noah's ark? lol!) that transport humans fr earth (?) to the hour-glass shaped planet (?) where the story starts.. n yup this is one of the aspect that never really explained in the series

    if prequal yup i like that!like i really wanna know how the grandfather (?)of Alvis implant/imprint the Key of Exile in her... thru DNA?
    it is mentioned Claus and Lavie's father r noble men.. wanna know whether r they fr the Elites houses..
    how some members fr the Guild came to their senses n break free from Maestro Delphine (or the Eraclea House in general...)





    oh bad, it is announced that it will be "a new series of Last Exile [with] new story, [main] characters, and mechanical designs."

    erm......WAHT!!!!!!!!!

    No Claus and Lavie?

    Oh well.............please oh please may that just be a pre-rendered animatic.

    cos if that picture is any indication of the CGI quality in the actual show............it would seem that CGI has not advanced since 2003.
