The story revolves around Claus Valca and Lavie Head, a young courier pilot and his navigator, and their adventures in the floating world of Prester. In this romantic sky world based on stylized Victorian fashion and society, two countries, Anatole and Dysis (sometimes phonetically rendered as Anatoray and Disith), are engaged in a long and bloody war under the supervision of the mysterious Guild. Claus and Lavie, piloting their vanship (a small wingless aircraft) find themselves involved in a plot surrounding a mysterious little girl named Alvis Hamilton, whom they must deliver as "cargo" to the much-feared neutral battleship "Silvana".
The characters were designed be the brilliant Range Murata, and are my favorite designs so far in any anime. I've got a special love for Lavie, as she's got roughly the same haircut that MissSpeech did when we first met. Anyhoo, the video I've made focuses on 5 of the main characters (Claus, Lavie, Alvis, Alex, and Sophia), and how their destinies are intertwined. The song is "From Yesterday" by 30 Seconds to Mars. They're a bit more "emo" than I normally like, but it's a pretty awesome song, and fits nicely, I think. Anyway, let me know what you think!
