5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal Jan. 16 2004
By Liora
Format:VHS Tape
I first saw the entire series of Escaflowne in 2001. It redefined what I knew as anime, and from that moment on, I knew that I had experienced something that was one of a kind.
Escaflowne features a fantasy story of a normal teenage girl named Hitomi. She is taken into a distant world called Gaia in which the Earth is known only as the Mystic Moon.
After meeting Van Fanel, a young swordsman with an amazing secret (ok, I'll tell you --- he has wings!), a rich plot begins to develop. Romance that is not sappy, a plot that is not cliche, characters that are interesting, tragic, and wondrous....
This anime is beautiful.
From the music to the story to the entire atmosphere of this enormously entertaining and instantly classic anime, Escaflowne shines. It is a series not lacking in any area, and the fantasy/futuristic feel is an interesting and unique touch. With robotic battles, sword-sparring, games of fate, tortured pasts, torn loyalty in romance, and winged people(!), the sheer ingeniousness of this series will blow you away.
The winged people are an amazing touch... they are not cliche or even angelic, just surprisingly well-done for such a common anime characteristic.
Dont' skip Escaflowne---
This is perhaps the best anime of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Anime series ever made. May 1 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Many people will throw around compliments like "The Best" rather easily, and change their minds like the wind. I dislike using that level of description, because usually there's several things competing for that position.
Not, however, in the case of anime series. No series I've ever watched -- and I've watched a lot of them, from Mobile Suit Gundam to Harlock to Metal Fighter Miku and Space Adventurer Cobra -- comes close to matching Escaflowne.
Visually, Escaflowne is stunning. Most series animation is clearly inferior to that found in anime movies, but in the case of Escaflowne it's hard to recognize that this is, in fact, a series. The backgrounds, the main characters, the action, all are done with a warm, lush attention to effect that never fails.
The music is one of the finest anime soundtracks ever made. Composed by Yoko Kanno (Macross Plus, Cowboy Bebop), it captures a spirit of mysticism and high adventure which is perfect for this series. I often leave this disc running in the background because it's so much fun to listen to.
The story... how can I do it justice? The best way to put it is this: for the past several years I have done a monthly anime night at our local Borders, and Escaflowne is the ONLY anime to consistently pull in people of all walks of life. I've seen it enthrall Dragonball Z fanboys, Sailor Moon addicts, 65-year-old grandmothers, 7 year old little brothers, casual Yuppie passers-by, and cynical goth poseurs. It has magic and war, politics and romance, intrigue and action, swords and giant mecha suits, and somehow all of it works to form a dazzling coherent whole that is unmatched in all the history of animated television.
Watch Escaflowne. You will never regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I finished the set with a heavy heart... Aug. 23 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Have you ever watched a series end and just wish that there was more? Somewhere in my heart, as I finished watching the last tape, I had hoped that this would lead into yet another series.
If you are even thinking about buying this then listen:
Picture a girl of innocence and hope just discovering her fist crush. Picture a boy set on conquering destiny and saving his land. A man who's honor is his life and who finds his heart torn in a million directions. An enemy who knows his fight is wrong and one who has yet to realize that. Now place that in a setting where both fantasy and sci-fi meet and you have the tip of where this goes.
I'm not going to tell you what happens, because that would ruin the movie. What I can say is that the story has depth. It isn't the easiest to understand, but its worth taking the time to try. The people are complex and dynamic, learning from their mistakes and being human in their errors. The villains are true to life, being merely people with different goals and not just evil. They have their honor and their own courage and in their own way they are nearly as epic as the heroes. There is love told in a way that makes it all seem possible. It takes you to the brink of imagination and leaves you out there, making you believe that somehow this might all be possible.
If I had to do it again, I'd buy them without even the slightest hesitation. If one of my tapes goes bad, I'll buy a replacement. It isn't for everyone, but most will love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars hmmm.. where do i start?? April 8 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Every single element of Escaflowne is excellent. The animation... I¡d rate it with 11 out of 10 stars! Every scene is so rich with details, colors and emotions; from the fluttering feathers from Van¡s wings, to the raindrops trickling on Hitomi¡s face, the flappings of Escaflowne & Scherazade¡s cape as they battle each other as the sun sets beyond the horizon, the clash of the swords, Atlantis... Some animes I¡ve seen have very flat animation that ignores a lot of detail resulting in inanimate looking characters. Kawamori Shoji had once again proved himself a master of aesthetic direction in Escaflowne as he did in Macross Plus, you can see the life, spirit and emotions peering out of each character¡s eyes.
Getting to the storyline, I won¡t disclose anything on the plot, that¡s for you to find out! Dimensions within dimensions, the plot blends science fiction with medieval fantasy (dragons, swords, knights, all the grandeur of a majestic empire) to the futuristic elements of robotic technology, without making it feel too futuristic. The plot is also very direct and not dragging us around in circles of confusion, despite the many elements contained in the plot mentioned above. In the end, you can see clearly how each character serves a major purpose in the plot and not just being a ¡§minor supporting role¡, and how each character relate to one another, it¡s just such a strong conclusion to the story. I also think that the plot builds the characters very well in only 26 episodes. To compare it with some other animes that drag up to more than 100 episodes and loses its focus with too many minor plots within its storyline.
