Last Exile is a steampunk fantasy anime released in 2003. A follow-up sequel series called Last Exile -Fam the Silver Wing- premiered in 2016 and introduced several new characters.
The series follows Lavie and Klaus, two young pilots surviving on odd jobs and the occasional race. When they decide to complete a dying courier's last assignment (despite it being much more dangerous than their usual errands), they must deliver a young girl named Alvis to a famed battleship called the Silvana. Soon, they become caught in the middle of an ongoing conflict between the two nations waging a never-ending war over their world, as well as The Guild, a group of beings who oversee all ship battles and look upon humans with disdain. It quickly becomes clear that Alvis holds a key to unlocking a bigger mystery.
