One of the review blurbs on the cover states that Last Exile wasn't anime, but instead art. I couldn't agree more. I'm one of the original "fan boys" since latching onto classics like Astroboy, Marineboy, and Kimba back in the 1960s and I didn't really expect the artistic nature of this series-- intelligent storyline, interesting characters, and stunning visuals.
The term "Steam Punk" gets thrown around a lot lately, but Last Exile really is such, and then some.
This series is a must-get for the animation fan's private collection!
The Incredibles was a BLAST! from beginning to end. The extra "Jack-Jack Attack was hilarious, and it will be a crime against humanity if they don't make a sequel SOON!
"Marge, those people chased us with pichforks and torches. TORCHES! At 4 in the afternoon!"
The haters are pious moron conformists.
Guitarist Pat Metheny's first release is arguably one of the best jazz albums ever. Set in a simplistic (simplistic for the electric and flamboyant mid-1970s) power trio configuation consisting of Metheny and good friends Jaco Pastorius on electric bass and Bob Moses on drums, Bright Size Life offers jazz conversation rarely heard then or today.
This title is a must-have in the collection of any musician or music fan.
