Right the first thing I wanna say about Last Exile is that it takes a couple of episodes to really warm up to. You keep looking left and right for the first couple of episodes wondering what the hell is going on and when is that narrator going to give us a nice little prologue…. but it never happens. You’re left to fend for yourself and I’ll admit there were a couple of moments when I thought I might drop it but believe me i’m glad I didn’t. Last Exile is a great roller coaster ride that I think would appeal to a large demographic. It pulls you in and the plot keeps you hooked till the last episode. The only thing that I found lacking (aside from the first couple of episodes) was the ending which, though not exactly bad, still left a slightly sour taste in my mouth. But I reiterate it wasn’t a bad ending at all. GONZO pulled out all the stops for this little gem of an anime and it’s one of the best sci-fi animes I’ve seen in ages… Oh and on a side note, Claus reminds me of little Anakin whenever he puts on his helmet and goggles.

One comes across numerous people claiming to be ‘music lovers’ or ‘hardcore music fans’. But once you ask them which songs they listen to, their reply is always (or 90% of the time) that they like Pitbull, Katy Perry and a bunch of other people who usually make it to the charts.

Personally, I think Pitbull is crap. Similarly, Ms. Perry, Taio Cruz, Enrique Iglesias and all the other drunk singers are worthless. True music lovers know that the good music doesn’t always make it to the charts, with a few exceptions of course (e.g: Rolling in the Deep – Adele).
So, let me give you a lesson a music.
Yes, you. You who sits on the table, watching endless television dramas, gnawing obnoxiously on whatever you get on your plate, rolling on the floor, laughing at others, yet not realising you’re no better than them. Pandas, they’re better than you, your grandpa and your precious historic linage of farmers/crown prince’s. Continue Reading
