Alcia lives a peaceful life on the planet Libertia with her friends Dorothy and Brick, and her grandfather, a talented professor. However, the soldiers of the Guild want their hands on a mecha that Alcia’s grandfather has been working on, and they’ll stop at nothing to get it. Alcia finds herself in the cockpit and in the middle of a battle for her Relic Armor Legaciam, a special device capable of withstanding immense heat. Can she and her friends protect it from the wrong hands?
In the world of Prestal, Noble men perform noble deeds for noble purposes. All of this is performed under the careful gaze of the Guild, a race apart who live in cities in the sky. We see this world through the eyes of Claus Valca and Lavi Head, as their travels take us above, beyond and through Prestal, and their actions cause ripples that shall never fade.
Last Exile is better in EVERY SINGLE WAY. If you liked the adventure aspects of RAL, and/or the idea of an upper class ruling the 'common folk' in a vague sort of way, definitely check out the far superior LE. It's somewhat of a gut feeling rec and there's no mecha in LE, but it might still be a good one to watch next.
