The Best Anime I have EVER seen.
2 December 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw Escaflowne originally on Fox Kids. I was a little confused, but then I went online and read how the story was, and I stopped watching it. I then was contacted by a friend who told me she bought the dvd edition three disc set with all 26 episodes on it off of Ebay. I went over to her house the very next day and watched it. I was shocked with how much they took out from the fox kids version. I instantly fell in love with the story. And especially Folken and Allen, but my first crush was on the adorable Gaddess. Anyways (getting off track ^_^)When we got through watching the whole thing I couldnt believe it. I then went out and spent the money on the 3 disc set and I was so excited. I almost toppled the UPS man when he brought it to the door I was so excited. I have to say to everyone that Escaflowne is the best damn anime there is. Well, besides DB/Z/GT. But I loved it. The animation was beautiful. The storyline exellent. the characters were enjoyable. And the music was totally breath taking. Such songs such as "Shadow of a Doubt" (more associated with Folken.) and "Chain" (the altering fate machine theme) have to be the most wonderfully done peices of music I have heard in a long time.

In all I give this a 10/10 in ratings. I would go higher then a 10, but I want to make it reasonable. Hell. A 100/10.
