By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on June 6 2009
Format: DVD
Imagine a world divided into two warring nations, full of airborne warships, political tangles, and a strange little girl that everyone is trying to get.

"Last Exile Volume 1 - First Move" is a pretty promising opener to this sci-fi/steampunk series, presenting a rather familiar-yet-very-different world where floating battleships filled with Napoleonic-dressed soldiers duke it out in the skies. The gorgeous CGI and solid writing form a pretty good basis for the series, and we get at least one enticing mystery introduced.

Claus Valca and his buddy Lavie Head are messenger couriers -- and in the interest of making enough money to soup up their vanship, they take a message to the Mad Thane commander. Who is in the middle of a battle. Of course, things turn nasty quickly -- Claus and Lavie get in trouble with the Mad Thane's officers, while the Guild just sits by and does nothing.

Later they start dead last in a vanship race, but Claus' superior piloting skills quickly put them in the lead. Then they see a Guild star-ship chasing a dying vanship pilot, who gives them a little blond girl named Alvis to take care of. And though Alvis seems to be an ordinary little girl (whom Claus and Lavie quickly become fond of), she has ties to the most infamous battleship of them all -- the Silvana.

"Last Exile" is one of those series that blurs the lines of genre and style -- it feels like a more ethereal brand of steampunk, complete with 18th/19th-century trappings and advanced airships. It's full of glowing light, vast expanses of cloads and flowing cities, and beautiful mountainous landscapes and clouds that could have come straight from a Hayao Miyazaki movie.

Last Exile - First Move is the beginning of an amazing, wonderous tale of truth, deceit, bravery, failure and success. The three main characters, Claus, Lavie and Alvis, are all characters everyone can relate to. They are young, naive, caring and loving, but they must face the real world of back stabbing, betrayal and intrigue.
The series starts off a bit slow, but with each episode you begin to find out more and more about the world these three young people live in. It is a world at war with itself. We know very little about the the "enemy", only that they "fight without honor or chivlary". We begin to realize the real "power" behind all that is happening is the Guild, a race of advanced beings who seem to have fun causing problems for the people of this world.
Claus and Lavie become involved in the war accidentally when the pilot of another Vanship crashes after hitting Claus and Lavie's Vanship during the "big race". That is when we first meet Alvis, or Al, as Claus and Lavie know her. Al is a innocent child who holds a dark secret that the Guild wants. But we are left wondering what that "secret" is.
The animation is first rate and the sound tract is fantastic. I recommend you get the soundtract along with the DVD.
"Last Exile" is a top notch thriller and first rate example of the Japanese of Anime.

I love this series. I saw it on Tech tv once and instantly bought it through this site. Granted the first volume is the worst, but still great. I usually hate most animes. But this one was awesome! Almost everyone i have shown this dvd to has not told me otherwise. If you buy this dvd, i highly recomend watching it with subtitles in japanese. This is where this dvd only got 4 stars. The American voice acting is suprisingly worse than usual. And the original japanese script is much less corny. The visuals are great too. most of the action sequences involve gorgeous computer generated visulas that blend almost perfectly with the actual animation. This anime is also actually funy! Yes, I said funny! It isnt constant hilarity, but you will laugh at least once or thrice. This dvd is gorgeous, funny, suspenseful, and it only gets better as the series continues. Buy now!

The first dvd of Last Exile contains 4 episodes. This new animation series is a must-buy collection!! It's one of Gonzo's best animation yet. Last Exile delivers the viewers humor, adventure, and suspense. The graphics in this anime are amazing and spectacular!! The 4 episodes contained are Last Move, Luft Vanship , Transpose, and Zugzwang.
Episode 1, it starts out with a vanship flying in the Grand Stream searching for a Disith fleet. The vanship is from the battle ship Silvana. The pilots of the vanship catches sight of their enemy and destroys them. That same day in Norkia, the 2 main characters Claus Valca, and Lavie Head are revealed. Claus is a vanship pilot and Lavie is his navigator. They are on a mission to deliver a message to Mad-thane, but to get to him, they have to go through a battle field between the Disith and Anatory.
Episode 2, Claus and Lavie have delivered the message to Mad-thane, but he is losing the battle. Claus and Lavie try to help, but then another vanship appears in the battle and bombs a Disith ship. The Silvana appears and begins to fire upon the Disith fleets, which helps the Anatory ships retreat from the battle. After the Anatory fleet has made their escape, the Silvana disappears. Claus and Lavie have accomplished their mission and return home.
Episode 3, Claus and Lavie are participating in a race now and have to start dead last, because they finished their mission the day before last. While Claus and Lavie are racing, another vanship pilot is being attacked by a Guild starship. Before Claus and Lavie are at the final corner of the race, the pilot being chased by the guild crashes into them.
