365 Days of Anime Characters: Day 1/365 Dio Eraclea

Day 1/365

Dio Eraclea

From the anime series Last Exile, Dio is the 16 year old younger brother of the most powerful Guild member, Maestro Delphine Eraclea. The Guild is what controls the world in this anime. They make all the important decisions and fly high above the clouds always watching the people down below. Dio is highly afraid of Delphine because of the power she holds. Even though he holds almost as much power as she does. He goes and runs away just because he thinks it would be fun to do and stays on board the Silvana. A ship owned by Alex Row who is the sworn enemy of Delphine because of a past encounter that did not end well.

Why I like him: He's weird and quirky. Probably because of the way he was raised in that crazy place with his sister, but he was a tasteful character that was there for comedic relief while still being a very important character to the outcomes of the show.

Why I hate him: There wasn't a lot to hate about him. At first though, he was annoying with the way he acted but I warmed up to him after realizing why he is the way he is and that became why I liked him.

Overall: Dio became my second favourite character of this series. His interactions with the other characters was a joy to watch. Especially his teasing of Claus, even going so far as giving him a nick name that he didn't like "Immelmann". Luciola his best friend would be my favourite character of the series. He was always looking after Dio and you could tell how much their friendship was basically the sole reason for Luciola's existence. It was a very touching bond that was a pleasure to watch.

    Holy shit! This is one seriously crazy idea! If you accomplish this, you completely have me beat!!! I hope you plan to get WAY ahead of yourself so that when there are days you have no energy, there will be posts to go up by themselves.

    I loved Dio in this series, especially towards the end – he’s really the only particularly memorable character in the show for me. He also reminds me a lot of Shinji from Bleach…

    Excellent concept. You’ve also established a fairly open-ended template that will nevertheless serve nicely to impose order on your impressions.

    PS: posting in an epic thread.

    thanks so much guys!

    @digitalboy totally plan on doing that very soon. I also agree about Dio. I liked the other characters but they were just so boring compared to him.

    @moritheil I’m all about order! 😀

    INSANNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    Do you know how many E’s that is? A lot. That’s how insane this post concept is! I love it!

    That being said, I have no clue who this character is, nor have I seen Last Exile.

    You know I almost cried in the scene that Luciola break into Delphines chamber, killing his own brother along the way, to ask Delphine for Dio’s freedom. The music was heartbreaking. Oh, will Luciola be one of your 365 characters?

    If you manage to complete this task you’ve set yourself I would be utterly gobsmacked.

    BTW, Dio was my favourite character from Last Exile. Chap was an absolute nutter although I didn’t like what they did to him in the last episode

  2. […] are good but don't really fit with the Gundam theme. The new enemy makes me think of Last Exile and Dio. Sumeragi has started drinking a whole lot more and she really reminds me of Misato from Evangelion […]
