Trivia: Last Exile

The writing in the series is a combination of real Greek and English transliterated into Greek. While the transliterations are mostly phonetic, there are a few quirks:

  • Eta is sometimes used correctly but sometimes used to represent H
  • Omega is sometimes used correctly but sometimes used to represent W
  • Beta is used to represent both B and V
  • Rho and Lambda are sometimes interchanged

Some translations:

Trivia Tropes

  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Queen Delphine is Talho?!
    • And in the English dub: What is Alucard doing on the Silvanna?
    • Alex Row has EXTREME LOYALTY to his crew and his dead copilot.
    • Listen to Dio and Lucciola, then go back and watch the first season of Digimon. You will never look at Tai and Izzy the same way again.
    • Klaus and Dio are Kaneda and Tetsuo!
    • There's more than a few rather recognizable voices throughout the series. It does like to flaunt its production value with fancy animation and good voice actors.
