So, not going to wade through all the stupid discussion of whether the show is too moe or not to see if it's been talked about yet, but who do we think the older Guild member is that Dio was sitting at a table with?

Good to see my suspicion that Dio was the Last Exile's version of a Vietnam era Green Beret come true.

Also, man, the Ades Federation has one hell of an impressive city. That said, someone should tell them that one global nation is a bad idea, because then there aren't any countries left to exploit, and instead you have to exploit your own people.

I feel some people here failed their Sarcasm and Irony saving throws. :P

*coughs* Anyway, episode 6. At this point in Last Exile the Silvana was fighting off a (timed) Guild attack. I wonder what's in store for us in Fam, as it looks like there's a vanship race involved. The LAST race we've seen in the series was just a smokescreen for Alex's schemes.

Personally, I'm upset that they increased the average age of the show. Fam and Giselle are slightly older than what Claus and Lavie were (Fam is almost 16!), the the returning characters are 2 years older by virtue of aging, and Millia is way older than Alvis was. I want my stuffed sheep hugging loli back!
XD Farcasm SAILED!

Pretty sure the general consensus is that it's Dagobert, the chief engineer of the Silvana.

Just finished episode 05

Rather enjoyed this one. While not quite as action packed as last one, it had some good moments.

Spoiler for Episode 05 Thoughts:


Is this show too moe? Honestly I think it is just the right amount. Personally, to me moe is bad when really that is the soul reason the show exists.

Also as far as yuri subtext, well personaly the more yuri the better.

I am assuming it going to part of Fam's next idea to steal more warships.

Well running out of other countries is kind of the point, so...
Actually if they keep it up, I think in 10 years its going to turn into a Philip K. Dick novel.

If the Silvana is still flying, wouldn't Dagobert prefer to stay with the claudia unit on that? Or do you guys think that they used Silvana's claudia unit for the Silvius?

Personally I think the Silvius would have been redesigned too much to have been previously the Silvana. But that means that either it's Dagobert and Silvana's claudia unit, it's not Dagobert, or that Dagobert was willing to leave that claudia unit to engineer a new one.

Silvana could have ST:TMP's USS Enterprise type refit.

Does anyone recall Fam was supposed to deliver Millia to Empress's Villa?

The leader of Turan was addressed as "King" not as "Emperor".

Atm, the known Empress would be Ade Federation's Sara or Anatoray's Sophia (from Last Exile).

Well, it's interesting to speculate on whether or not the Silvana was made by cannibalizing the Silvanus. Mainly because, the insinuation seems to be that Anatory does not have an easy time bringing their own warships to Earth, thus why Tatiana wants to steal some.

I don't believe Anatory is in outright war with Ades. Ades doesn't even seem to know who Anatory is, if we take the conversation in episode 2? maybe 3? where the Ades generals got together to talk about how one of their fleets was trying to chase down 'mysterious' ships. It's probably a safe bet that those 'mysterious' ships belong to Anatory.

I'll reiterate my earlier theory from a week or two ago that Anatory arrived on Earth to find it wasn't quite the paradise they envisioned, which caused them to covertly scope out the political/social framework that already existed. Tatiana seemed pretty clear that she'd prefer peace, and by insinuation of being an officer, that Sophia would choose peace, but that after two years, they're increasingly suspecting that peace may not be an option. Thus, this new ramp up as I suspect Anatory becomes a lot less covert about their opposition to Ades. Though, I'll go out on a very short limb and predict that obviously our heroines will bring about some form of peace that culminates in a Grand Race by the time the series ends.

Now, we know Claus/Lavie became farmers, and it's possible they still are as all this is unfolding. We can also predict that Anatory must have a secret patch of land somewhere as a base of operations of some sort (if the Sky Pirates can do it, no reason Anatory can't either). That's likely where the Exile we saw in episode one landed. Since we have no way of knowing how often the Exile was traveling between the Earth and the Prester of the first series, it's hard to predict just how much supplies, troops, etc Sophia has likely secretly brought over to Earth, but I'm sure the Silvana isn't operating in a complete vacuum, even if they are trying to pirate warships, rather than build their own.

That would be quite the interesting development if the former Empress of Ades wasn't actually dead, but living secretly in exile in Turan, with her showing up later down the road to confuse the heck out of our little cute Augusta who thinks she's doing the right thing.

Comparing Shuu Ouma's naivety and Augusta's, its obvious that even if your a little kid, being naive is a bigger mistake as long as your a head of a state.

So I hate Augusta more than Shuu, for being a stupid kid.

Sara refers to the little Empress of Ades i.e. Empress Sara Augusta.

Stealing 15 Ades airships matches the last Turan fleet airship count i.e. 15 airships not including the flagship.

Anyway, Silvius was stated to have destroyed an Ades fleet. Silvana was able down a Guild Flag Battleship on 1:1.

We know some Anatoray green colored warships seen to be deployed from "Last Exile" space/starship..

Last Exile - Episode 6

All in all, this was a pretty decent follow up to the last episode. Millia's maid getup was a bit intrusive, but only a bit. I'm looking forward to see what they have planned for a government-in-exile. Giselle's heist was pretty decent for anime plans, despite it being a bit (a lot) unbelievable.

But what takes the cake for me was the Ades speech/gathering at the end. All of it - the layout, the iconography, the uniforms and the speeches themselves are references to the Nuremburg Rallies. This certainly gives a different feel to the cheer of "Gloria Augusta!"

The Silvius is the basically the tip of the spear for Anatoray's navy. Tatiana and Sophia would only probably want the best to crew the Silvius. Since no one else knows more about Claudia units, of course he would be picked. He probably oversaw the construction of the Silvius's unit in the first place.

From the way she said it, I always assumed it was supposed to be a joke. But now that it looks like those lost birds Dio brought with him could actualy do it.

So I wasn't the only one expecting everyone to go "zig hile" (sp?) at the end. Actually if we accept that this taking place in the eastern Mediterranean, then it would be more Imperial Rome. But since Fascism was based in part on iconography of Rome, then yes.

Basically Sara is the littlest fascist dictator whether she realizes it on not.

Spoiler for Speculation on the time frame post episode 05:

It's anime. So, probably juice. But, we all know 'juice' is the anime metaphor for beer.
