Product Description

Twelve-year-old twins Ai and Yu Hayakawa take a mysterious subway to Wonderland to look for their missing scientist-parents. Wonderland is a hostile place, ruled by the petulant Earl Tyrant and his assorted hench-creatures. Ai and Yu are attacked by monsters and saved first by Lisa, a practitioner of the "Kigen Arts," then repeatedly by the taciturn, gun-totting Kaze. The first episodes are cluttered with characters who appear briefly then vanish. Although Ai, Yu, and Lisa do a lot of traveling, the series doesn't really go anywhere: the filmmakers seem more interested in showcasing the elaborate CG effects at their disposal than in coherent storytelling. The effects are very flashy, but they never meld satisfactorily with the drawn animation. Based on the popular videogame franchise, Unlimited borrows from Matsumoto's Galaxy Express and Miyazawa's Galactic Railroad, but offers none of their mystery and magic. (Rated 12 and older: violence, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Final Fantasy Unlimited has great qualities one may look for in an animated series. First of all, the story is pretty decent and captivating. It starts off a little slow, but once things pick up, it really is hard to be pulled from.
The story is basically about two children looking for their parents who have mysteriously disappeared in the world of Wonderland. The two find their way into Wonderland, beginning their adventure of mystery and exotic lands.
There is a combination of animations. One animation type looks hand drawn and simplistic. The artwork is not very detailed, but still done nice. The second type of animation is 3D computer generated. It sounds like the two and two wouldn't work together, but they blend well nicely.
It's a great series to watch for a Final Fantasy fan because it has qualities from the games.
1.) There are summons such as Phoenix.
2.) Fanfare Victory music is played: just like the games. (maybe cheesy, but it's there)
3.) There are chocobos. (chocobo music is even played)
4.) In all Final Fantasy games, there's a man named Cid. In FF: Unlimited, there is also a man named Cid.
For a start, FF: Unlimited (Phase 1) is well done. The first episode may be a little slow, but it's great when it picks up. The lead characters have great personalities. However, I find the little girl a little obnoxious at times. The chocobo is cute, as it likes to yank on the little girl's hair and yell out, "KWEH!" from time to time. The enemies in this series are a little corny, but all in all not bad.
I give Phase 1 a 4 stars because of the slow start. I also didn't like feeling like FF: Unlimited was a rip from Alice in Wonderland. I wish they would've named the world something a little more creative, but that's just me being picky.

It's sad that people are going to waste money on this just because it has "Final Fantasy" in the title. This is just your typical anime, but given a big-name title. The character designs are horrible, and the plot is just like all your other series. A dark power takes over the world slowly, and it's up to a single person to save it...but not without making tons of friends on the way. The only thing "Final Fantasy"ish about this series is some of the characters, but even then they screwed them up with terrible designs.
If you don't believe me, do a google search for "FF Compendium". Then look for FF:Unlimited on the side bar. See how terrible everything looks and sounds? They have episode summaries. It sure sounds original. This is just an animated series endorsed by SquareSoft so they can get more money to help the flop that was the FF movie. I think there were 2 or 3 good music pieces in this, but that's all.
Anime really, REALLY needs to get some new ideas. The style's been stale since about 1998. Please, don't buy this. Give money to charity before giving it to this dvd. And now that I gave you the site to look for, you can't say this review wasn't helpful you little fanboys. Get over it. FF isn't the best anything. I've been into the FF series since 1994 when the best one- VI came out. Since then I've seen the series have its highs and lows. The low being FF7 (that's the worst RPG ever made), and its highs- Tactics + X (being the most innovative in the series yet), and this anime had nothing to do with FF but some characters.
Note- if you're offended that I said that FF7 is terrible, grow up. You all just like it and think it's the best because you're new to RPGs and it was the first one you played. Sephiroth was stupid, and not even evil. Stop acting like you know what it takes to be a good villain. Kefka fron FFVI, now that's a true bad guy. At least he did more than take out a main character and burn some miserable village.

This anime is much better then some people give it credit for. The character designs are semi-retro and very colorful. The soundtrack is good, not epic and moving beyond preportion but still very good. The plot doesn't focus on saving the world but instead focuses on the rival between the Black Wind and the White Cloud, as well as the mysteries of the world this takes place in and the search for Ai and Yu's parents. The action scenes could be better but they're satisfactory, the REAL draw of Final Fantasy Unlimited though is the mysterious and bizarre wonderland like setting. Seriously it feels like the art directer was on some sort of mild hallucinagine what he was working on this. It's not disturbing though, so if kids want to watch this there shouldn't be a problem. All in all it's a very good anime, it's not without it's faults but unless your extremly cynical you should enjoy this.

i watched this one and was amazed how much the plot progresses and how the mood of the story changes. those who didn't like the first discs will be pleased if they stick with these future ones. this is a great disc because the plot finally comes together and all that stuff about chaos is revealed. so you won't be watching these episodes and feeling like you have no clue of why they're walking in all these strange places and all that.
the series keeps its childish appeal with the kids and chobi laughing and having fun, but the bad guys get a little more "sadistic" and lisa and kaze begin to be emersed in their dark pasts. so it begins to turn more in the adult's favor with plot and mood, but keeps in touch with kids with the same characters and a few funny scenes. this dvd is one of the best so far and is worth all its money. especially for the new ending song.
