Far, far away in a distant time, there is a tribe of people called the Golden Tribe who have the ability to create stars and foretell the future. They gave out a warning to those who have yet to mature: 'Move.'. Three tribes answered their call: the Silver Tribe, the Bronze Tribe, and the Heroic Tribe. Soon after, the Golden Tribe encountered a crashed ship in which only a baby human known as Age survived; they named the child's race the Iron Tribe and assigned one of the few living members of the Heroic Tribe to protect him and his race. Now, in a distant part of the galaxy, humanity is threatened with extinction at the hands of the other tribes. With only a prophecy to go on, they set out to the deepest depths of space to find their savior named Age -- humanity's last hope.
Action, large-scale space battles, a tiny bit of comedic relief, drama, mecha and character relations are the best things of both series. I think that after watching one of these animes you will just fall in love with mecha series. Animation is outstanding and main characters are likeable. What possibly would you want more form an anime series?

Last Exile and Gundam Seed have the same main idea for a plot: to bring peace to the world that we live in. The action is a little different, but both of them are very thrilling when it comes to the speed of the ships. They are both enjoyable shows to watch.

Though these anime's are very oppsoite when it comes to action, and setting, but they're both full of politics and slight romance. Gundam SEED has slightly more romance in it than Saiunkoku Monogatari, but it isn't apparent until late into the series.
Saiunkoku Monogatari is a slower anime whose base story line reflects the political actions needed to create a peaceful society and to help the people that live within that society. In Gundam SEED, the main purpose that the Gundams were built for are to create peace between the Earth and Plant.
Both have very intricate plot twisty, and a lot of deciet, that must be overcome by intelligent political stances.

Haunted by the many ghosts of her memories, Sarah must now endure an endless series of sacrifices as she struggles to discover the truth about her brother...
Space, it's dramatic. And filled with explosions in a void devoid of oxygen and mercy. Both represent space in it's relentless, explosive glory with mecha duking it out, close range with shiny, light sword stabby things, beams of light making things go boom and death, because you can't have a space opera without named characters dying. Comedy takes a backseat as does romance to a lesser extent, but both are more about conflicts between two factions and those who are in the frey, povital to the grand scheme of things.
