FUNimation Announces LASTEXILE - Fam, The Silver Wing

06/22/2011 at 8:00pm

Funimation announces acquisition of the much anticipated follow up to the fan favorite GONZO series, LASTEXILE -Fam, the Silver Wing- with special events at Anime Expo 2011.

It’s interesting that they’d license this series when there’s no information on when the series will begin. Anyway, I am happy about this, since I am a fan of the first series.

I love last Exile… but wow, never expected Last Exile would have another series… to me, I don’t think it fits the ending of the first series to have a second one with new characters… But I hope it’s good. :lol:

It came out great!

Episode 9 –


This was a real “feel good” episode. The three girls have really come together now, once they realized they are together for more than themselves. The impromptu hockey game was great! The birthday party was wonderful, but I’m not too sure about that birthday song! Fam was deeply touched and that cake looked delicious! And Vincent is back! I really love how characters from the old show keep popping up in this one. Not only is it nice to see them again, it’s also nice to see what became of them.

Episode 9.5 –

This was a nice recap episode with beautiful music. :slight_smile: I just love the music in this series!

Funimation Delays Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing by 5 Months

posted on 2013-02-19 23:54 EST

Knowing Funimation, I wouldn’t be surprised if we were celebrating the 20-year anniversary of the first Last Exile series before the sequel finally comes out. Funi is infamous for delays but it has been a long time since there was a delay on a series about which I cared. The last one was probably the year+ delay on Darker than Black: Gemini of the Meteor. Of course, that show was an atrocity so I don’t really blame Funi for trying to stall so that they wouldn’t have to subject fans to that.

It’s a shame they didn’t manage to get Crispin back in there as I consider Last Exile to contain the only proper Crispin role that I’ve ever seen…err…heard. Though I’ve nothing against the director of Mushi-shi.

I’m still somewhat disappointed about the setting of the sequel as I didn’t see the filler story & the dubbed ending of Last Exile seemed to leave the show open to a cooler setting for a sequel. Of course, the only thing I really remember about the original ending, after all these years, was the rather hilarious line about tentacles so I might be forgetting something…but I doubt it. :wink:
