Been watching Escaflowne lately.
brings back so much memories haha.
Did anyone else loved Escaflowne?
Escaflowne is part of the very best in anime.
what wait a sec
...there's an Escaflowne game?
Yeah there was.
It was pretty okay. It was in the same vein as SMG in a Isometric style
Here's a video
Escaflowne takes every anime cliche from the period and somehow was still amazing. Soundtrack is based as fuck.
I feel like I discovered I had a secret brother
Yeah, the Escaflowne goes to irl earth and dogfights Dilandau and fighter jets and shit at some point even.
What would it be like if the series would of been made this year?
>Dilandau and fighter jets
>wub wub ost with jpop 1-use singer
>Persona 2 Escaflowne game
Why didnt I know about this?
A week ago or so we had on /m/ a grate thread about how Dilandau is one of the best transgender psychopaths ever existed. shame I can't find the pics, there was plentiful of all his best faces...
Aww maybe it's probably in some kind of archive somewhere on the internet.
Does anyone have sitll have the vhs tapes?
Probably there's still some episode I recorded on vhs from the tv broadcasting hidden back in my mother's basement...
Better question, got the tarot deck?
>one of the best transgender psychopaths ever
There are a lot of those then?
About the only other one I can think of is Yasu. Though it's not exactly hard to be better than that.
I've been looking for it around the house as I packeed with many of my other collection.
Do you have a copy?
Best character in the series.
>look up game on Nico
>first video calls it kusoge
>it looks like a kusoge
Does anyone have any GOOD anime-based ps1 games?
why is he/she so fucking awesome...I want to laugh at burning villagers togheter...
Because he's voiced by Minami Takayama
I didn't get it. My friend did and I was a little disappointed the cards weren't a bit more awesome.
She didn't do many roles eh
I mean, her series are almost all long runners
The ending was shit.
compared to other series, it was decent.
maybe because there's no one with green hair?
Idunno, I just think she sounded perfect for the character. Only other seiyuu I could imagine Dilandau would be Megumi Ogata or something.
my friends are ded
Blame the arian dragon
If only they could have done another season.
Killing MS with a two handed sword...Guts would be proud
That's because you're a little girl.
No gifs of that eh? guess I'm going to hunt dow those BDs...
How? the plot was already resolved. they should have planned it from the beginning to not pull out absolute bullshit.
and probably series was pretty costly, and they had to wait for it to hit the states and the rest of the world to harvest some income, considering how it bombed in japan
Literally just finished this series this morning.
Just what the hell happened during the second half? I can piece it all together but for some reason it still doesnt sit well with me.
>I can piece it all together but for some reason it still doesnt sit well with me.
That's what happens when you start fucking with fate.
>How? the plot was already resolved.
It didn't have to be resolved like that so quick
I think what threw me off the most was the forced push along in Allen and Hitomi's relationship.
I clearly saw why it happened but I'm still left scratching my head wondering why does no one clear this shit up after finding out it was just Isaac and Folken dicking around.
>considering how it bombed in japan
Japan and their legendary shit tastes.
I know, but again, consider who wrote it.
and consider that even if he wanted to, without a decent rating its already fat that he finished 26 eps. without completely pooping out of the vase.
and anyway, I think its better this way. longer ip iterations aren't always good, there's the risk of diluting the soup and making it taste like shit.
we have a great series. stop. that's it, its surgically clean ans fantastic.
yeah, I was pretty dazed the first time I heard about
One of those animation director founded bones with Watanabe, iirc. you can still see the similarities in the design of this and bones, if you warch closely.
I always heard they started with the plan for 3 seasons and had to change after it started and a big part of the show's lack of success was due to Japan's economic problems at the time.
Really? that would explain almost all the second half, and maybe the movie. I always tought it was pretty strange for a unsuccessful 1 season series to have a movie so soon. do you have any source on that? I'm kinda curious
Where's a good Escaflowne torrent? Never did watch it
So this is how being nostalgiafags feels...
damn it, its 15 years already and no one cares anymore about it...
You can find it on Google.
what's the name of the music in this scene?
Wow, there are still the dvd rips on my language on nyaa.
>this video isn't alvaiable in your country
Yeah, I see that. Was hoping for BD since it has been released for a while.
wiki confirms "Initially, the series was planned at thirty-nine episodes"
>Imagawa saw the series as being a typical shōnen series that was heavily male oriented and featuring a shapely heroine and dramatic battles
guess its good that he left and everything got condensed. first because we wouldn't had G Gundam, second because this way Escaflowne isn't G Gundam
What's Nobuteru Yuki doing today? he retired or something? guess he's still swimming in dem lodoss dollars
Deedlit is still best Elf girl.
Man, you typed Pirotess wrong
>[DVD ita-jap] 0% completed
>seeds: Z E R O
to think I had the complete dvd box set as a birthday present.
True fact: Most people on /a/ weren't even born when Escaflowne began
Before all the seiyuu were announced for Yowamushi Pedal I thought she would be picked for Midosuji. But after hearing the guy who is in it he matches the character pretty well.
Good taste OP. That show brings back good memories for me as well, and is the only one I've watched to the point of almost having the lines memorized.
The OSTs, with all of their powerful orchestral music, and some of their quirkier songs, have always been some of my favorites too. This shit in particular still makes me tear up sometimes. It's just... beautiful (well, when it's encoded better than youtube quality, and all the subtle sounds of the instruments come out).
I just realized I'm a faggot for having watched this series in somewhat low quality, but the higher release torrent is banned on bakabt. What do?
The most seeded torrent I'm seeing floating around claims to be a BD rip @ 720p. I don't have a local copy anymore to give any kind of feedback, but, yeah. You could give that a shot. Just search on one of the torrent aggregate sites. torrentz . eu is the one I use just for convenience-sake
Figured I should finally get around to watching this. Is the original dub a lot better? Or is english decent?
