Last word on Last Exile

Alex has finished Last Exile and takes the time to enumerate the show’s various flaws, shortcomings, and missed opportunities. I was glad to see I wasn’t the only one who thought the show left the viewer in the dark on too many occasions. Some of the omitted details were so fundamental that I was starting to wonder if I just wasn’t paying attention.

At the end of the post are a few comments (from visitors, not Alex) that are supportive of the show. I found these arguments to be unpersuasive, but it’s nice to see some people were able to enjoy the show despite its flaws.

    What I thought was hilarious, was that when I started watching this show, I also began reading these blogs/forums/whatever you want to call it. So, I was at disc 3, when suddenly my friend calls me and says that was on disc 6. I didn’t even know he liked it, so I asked him how he liked the show so far. He said that he started watching it at 6 because it was the only one he could get his hands on. I don’t think I ever laughed harder than that one day.
