After finally tricking Netflix into sending me a proper disc, I’m nearly done with Last Exile. Disc 6 is brutal. They are starting to kill off characters at an alarming rate. Maestro Delphine is a very good villain. Almost too good. I hate her so bad that my enjoyment of this series is now directly linked to how badly she dies at the end.
Maestro Delphine: Not a nice person.
I’ve enjoyed this series so far, but all of that will be undone if she doesn’t die screaming.
Maestro Delphine: So very evil..
While waiting for her (hopefully brutal) death, I can continue to enjoy the incredible visuals. Integrating CGI with drawn visuals has always been clumsy, but this series has done a remarkable job of blending the two together.
Time for some screengrabs!
