Making a Living in Manga in Japan with Felipe Smith
Lost in Translation
The official website for Last Exile -Fam, The Silver Wing- (Last Exile: Ginyoku no Fam), the new anime series in Gonzo's Last Exile franchise, began streaming the second 125-second promotional video off the Flying Dog music label's YouTube channel on Saturday at 8:00 p.m. in Japan (7:00 a.m. EDT). Director Koichi Chigira, character designer Range Murata, and production designer Makoto Kobayashi are all returning from the first Last Exile anime, but the new person in charge of scripts is Kiyoko Yoshimura.
The story centers around Fam (Aki Toyosaki), a girl from an aerial family, "and her trusted navigator, Giselle, as they pilot their vanship, Vespa, through the free and peaceful skies." The new television series premiered at Anime Expo in Los Angeles in July before TBS screened the first episode at the TBS Anime Festa event on Saturday.
