Watching Escaflowne the Movie now.
Holy fuck this is awesome.
Animation was nice, but IMO the TV series was an overall better experience.
Yup it was technically very good but otherwise meh plot-wise.
Though the movie did had Folken looking a bit like David Fucking Bowie from Labyrinth.
Ditto. Retarded movie with visual orgasms.
The movie was win in the first scene, then fail all throughout the rest.
Actually, it might've been decent had they lengthened it to develop some of the other characters and not completely fizzed out on the climactic "battle".
Folken: Van, now we must fight to the death!
Van: Hrm, no. I'm tired of fighting.
Hitomi: He's tired of fighting!
Folken: You're tired of fighting?
Hitomi: You caused all his sorrow!
Folken: I caused all his sorrow?
Van: I'm tired of fighting!
Folken: Well... fuck.
Jajuka: Furry revenge! *stab*
Folken: I redeem myself by remembering you calling me that as a child. *dies*
