    Dang, I've seen the movie but now I gotta see the series. Anyway, it's pretty good. If I remember right they explain some backstory, so it's a little redundant if you've seen the series I guess, but there were a few things that I had to ask about. So I think it's a good balance, but it should keep you interested either way.

    The Movie Is AWESOME ( imho). Honestly It Cuts out a lot of the Crazy Relationship bs and Distills the story down. It's Great animation, the music is Amazing and the characters are stronger/older/more mature. I loved it and most of the peopel I've talked to about it have said the same.

    the movie animation kills the series animation totally.
    story is a little rushed but over all its way better, the only down side limited use of escaflowne but there are a lot of other fight scenes.

    personally i think the movie is better then the series.

    Actually I disagree. The movie was better animation wise but the way the story ended was poor. The movie ended quick and disappointing. The series was more entertaining. Still worth buying. Expecially the very first scene.

    The movie is a visual feast, but don't expect the same story or characterizations from the television series.

    Hitomi's character is a bit different, so is Dilandau, Folkan, and the rest of the cast. The movie also lacks mass produced Guymelefs. But has some awesome hand to hand magic and swordplay in it's place. The character designs also look a bit different as well, more bug eyed and no more pointy noses.

    It's worth owning though, especially if you're a hardcore Escaflowne fan.

    ;)
     
  10. What genre is this? How fast paced is the action?

    Compare it to:

    Ninja Scroll
    Berserk
    Jin Roh

    Thnx. :)

    It's not comparable to any of those titles.

    It's a bit like Lodoss Wars, if you've seen that.
     
  12. I have Lodoss wars, it's that genre and broken into segments? Or is it segments that are put together smoothly like Berserk. Lodoss irritated me because they literally broke up each 20 minute segment with the intro, song, etc.. This is on video, so you can imagine my pain. Berserk is on DVD, but isn't nearly that broken up and annoying.

    Hopefully this made sense. I'm tired.
