To me, the most beautifully done animated TV series
22 September 2002 | by (Providence) – See all my reviews

One of the few series where the animation only gets better as the show goes on. Yoko Kanno's music is absolutely perfect, truly heart wrenching. It really adds the the very professional feel of the entire series. It may be your classic good versus evil plot (in a way) but there are so many other elements that make the whole escaflowne world come to life. A truly well done series. The only animated TV series i know of that feels like i'm watching a movie.
