    YUP awesome

    unlike Shinji, Van wasn't a pussy. But a straight baddass asshole

    Loved it when Escaflowne turned into a flying dragon :bowdown:

    someone REUP this please, I want to archive it

    Indeed. When I first watched this like 6-7 years ago (when it was on television... never finished watching it -- cancelled I think), I admired Folken so much. He is awesome :cool:

    someone rate the romance on a scale of 1-10 and if it would overcome my general dislike of mecha. :o

    edit: Actually, tell me if it's like Eureka Seven's formula. character development > mecha

    Fantastic series all around. And it even spawned a mediocre film. I think Escaflowne is still Yoko Kanno's best musical work.

    I'd watch it. you have nothing to lose and it's far better than the other stuff you probably watch :big grin:

    Also, watch Gundam Seed if you haven't seen that. although there are mechs, the story/characterization is great and it's one of my top 5 animes.

    edit: and yes, Escaflowne is Kanno's magnum opus. The music is perhaps the best in any anime I've watched IMO.

    You've wasted more time watching worse anime than this, I'm sure.

    And you fansub so I don't see how you value your time anyway :mamoru:

    TUN: just watch it. It's pretty good, and there are real romance aspects to it that you should like.

    I just finished Gungrave and Escaflowne is better and more consistently animated. It's a beautiful series.

    I also like the fact that Hitomi isn't a big titty hottie, she's a really normal and average looking girl.
