FUNimation’s giving a lot of attention to its August slate of releases, but it’s also providing some nods towards what’s coming in September. The latest to get some attention is the September 10th release of the Last Exile: Fam, The Silver Wing – Season Two, Part 1 on DVD/BD combo release, which presents a series that takes place years down the line from the original with a largely new cast. FUNimation simulcast the series and is releasing the sets for it on the same day, with the first part getting the box set limited edition release.
Plot concept: Years ago, humanity abandoned the ruined Earth. Generations later, with the planet again capable of sustaining life, mankind returned. In the skies above the reborn world, rebellious young Fam and her best friend Giselle make their living as Sky Pirates. Atop sleek Vespa Vanships, the girls dart fearlessly through the clouds, capturing and selling airborne battleships for profit. It’s a life of care-free swashbuckling — until the Ades Federation attacks. The only nation to remain on Earth during humanity’s exile, The Ades Federation wages war against those who returned only after the planet’s darkest days had passed. When Fam and Giselle rescue a princess from the clutches of the rampaging Ades armada, they join the young royal’s battle to save her Kingdom from destruction — and undertake the impossible mission of uniting humanity in peace.
