**No spoilers** The Pilot's Love Song is a mix of drama, romance and action, though I would say it leans toward primarily being a drama. The show starts with a relatively easygoing feeling, but gets much more serious by the halfway point and remains so until the end.

The main theme that this series focuses on is the reality of war, which includes the concepts of overcoming fear, accepting loss and the importance of forgiveness through love. There is a fairly decent-sized cast of side characters without being too overwhelming, and there are several romantic interests among them which helps to keep your interest even if read more

Main characters from both series are duo pair pilots. Clause and Kal-El are the one controlling the plane while Lavie and Ariel are the navigators. Both series taking place in the sky and living on floating islands. Last Exile's story can be very similar to Toaru Hikushi e no Koiuta. Both series have great movie visuals and animations.
In both shows:
There are characters who hide their real identity.
Someone from the noble class is living a normal life.
Characters hide their feeling of hatred while acting as good people.

In Code Geass people fight with mecha, in Toaru they use airplanes.
