"Positional Play contains episodes Positional Play, Arbiter Attack, Interesting Claus, and Takeback. Episode 5 , begins from the episode before. Alex Row has killed the pilot in the starship and taken Al. He boards the Silvana with Al and leaves. Claus and Lavie are unable to follow, because they are low on fuel to make sure that Al will be safe in the care of the Silvana. They take fuel from the damaged starship and set off towards the Silvana. When they arrive at the ship, it opens fire. Claus and Lavie dodge the bullets and again crashland, but on the Silvana. Episode 6, Claus and Lavie meet up with Al and want to leave the Silvana. At the same time the Silvana is under attack from the Guild starships. Their vanship is damaged and unable to fly, so Claus volunteers to fight for the Silvana. Al stays on the Silvana, while Claus and Lavie are fighting against Lord Dio. Episode 7, Claus and Lavie are still fighting against Dio, but while they are flying, Lavie has a red out and Claus is unable to fight with Lavie knocked out. Dio is about to shoot Claus down, but there has been 20 minutes of combat time and are ordered to retreat. Lavie recovers and the Silvana is severely damaged and needs to dock.Episode 8, the Silvana has docked, and Lavie is out wandering in the casinos. She meets up with a friend and watches the birds race. At the same time, the mechanics on the Silvana are also down in the casino. The casino is filled up with men from another battle ship called the Goliath. They have cheated against the mechanics on the races, which upsets Lavie. She starts a fight between the Silvana and the Goliath. Like always, the Silvana wins and sinks the Goliath, killing all on the ship. These new episodes are amazing and are like a prelude to new characters that are going to be important and interact a lot with the main characters. There are even better graphics and you'll be amazed with good they are. The battle between Claus and Dio makes you feel like that you are actually there, in the skies watching them fly. My review does not contain all the info from the series, and i suggest that you buy this dvd to find out more."
This is STUNNING...

"Okay, I rarely buy anime sight-unseen, but something about this title just caught my imagination, so I purchased the first volume and was extremely pleased with it. This second volume is about to make my head explode with the sheer goodness of it!
While the first volume sets up the dynamic, now in this next set of 4 episodes, we're taken on a swooping, amazing ride as Claus and Lavie board the Silvana to get back Al. But...all hell breaks loose and we're treated to amazing CG as dogfights take place in the air. That sort of thing normally wouldn't be my cup of tea, but the protagonists are just so darn likable and the antagonists so intriguing that I really felt myself caught up in the action and I did something I haven't done for a long, long time: I leaned in, eyes wide with excitement and held my breath. Did I mention that the mysteries continue and the characters are even more fleshed out?If you enjoyed the first volume, absolutely get this second volume, it's a great thrill ride. For Heaven's sake, what are you waiting for?!"

Yet Another Gonzo Masterpiece!

"One word says it all, GONZO!! Simply GONZO!! In case you are not familiar with GONZO, they are one the top Anime Studios out there. With series such as Gate Keepers & Gate Keepers 21, Hellsing, Blue Submarine 6, Zallion, Full Metal Panic, the newly released Yukikaze & Kiddy Grade plus one of my personal favorites Vandread. This studio has made a name for itself through it's uncanny ability to blend together classic style animation with cutting edge CGI or digital 3D Animation, and the story lines never seem to disapoint me.The Last Exile story line follows 2 friends Clause and Lavie as they find themselves in the middle of a brewing war. Sound familar? Let me just say that this story is truly like none you have ever seen, it is truly one of the most creative series out there. There are no giant robots that have come to save the day, instead there are giant flying battle ships with various other small ships. With memorable characters, great graphics and animation, and excelent music, this series will soon go down as one of the best and is a must have for any fan, young or old, of anime!!I can really sit here all day and talk about this series, but I don't want to spoil anything. Just buy it!!"
