FUNimation's #6: Last Exile

Can we tease that "Last" Exile isn't the "Last" announcement the way people think they're so clever for making fun of "Final" Fantasy?

Oh god, what day is it? Friday? We only have five of these FUNimation announcements left to go? Wowsers. The latest is Last Exile, a(nother) former Geneon title with a sort of retro-futuristic, sort of art deco style to its steampunk sci-fi/fantasy/adventure story. Their blurb:


It’s the dawn of the Golden Age of Aviation on planet Prester, and retro-futuristic sky vehicles known as vanships dominate the horizon. Claus Valca - a flyboy born with the right stuff - and his fiery navigator lavie are fearless racers obsessed with becoing the first sky couriers to cross the Grand Stream in a vanship. But when the high-flying duo encounters a mysterious girl named Alvis, they are thrust into the middle of an endless battle between Anatoray and Disith - two countries systematically destroying each other according to the code of chivalric warfare. Lives will be lost and legacies determined as Claus and Lavie attempt to bring peace to their world by solving the riddle of its chaotic core.


Coming in '09, they say. Enjoy!

I'm going to try to pick up a box set of this when it finally comes out.

This "New Show A-Go-Go!" campaign has a bunch of Old Shows in it.  Sure it's new to FUNimation, but I've already seen Last Exile.
