Day 73 of the 100 Day Anime Challenge has arrived, and our question of the day is: What is an Anime what you feel is very underrated? This is an easy one for me, just like yesterday. An anime that i’ve never heard anyone but myself raving about; Last Exile.
Last Exile is a beautiful example of how TO use CG in an anime correctly. The dystopian steampunk setting is beautifully crafted, the world is intriguing, the art is beautiful and the story is engaging and well-written. Some of the characters manage to get on my nerves a lot, especially Claus, but I adore Lavie, and Dio is one of my favorite characters of all time. The plot moves slowly, but at a steady pace, which I think was a big turnoff for a lot of people, but if you stick with it, you won’t regret it.
If you like engaging stories that suck you in and keep you for a long time, give Last Exile a try. It’s been one of my favorites for a very very long time, and I would love to see more love going around about the show. Anyone else have any shows they think are criminally overlooked? Let me know down in the comments, and I hope to see everyone again tomorrow!
