Escaflowne thread?

Went into this blind after looking to explore the Mecha genre separate from Gundam. I was pleasantly surprised with the solid pacing and unique presentation, it's a great show to immerse yourself in, great for escapism.


the show is beautiful to look at, its like a shojo anime with mecha
kawamori's best series imho even if its too girly


looks like shonen to me I can't into escapism without focusing on the villains with shonen


the villains are the best part of the show


I remember seeing this on TV as a kid but the memories are foggy. I thought the idea of mechs using big cables as weapons was cool. I should rewatch it. I never caught the whole thing but always thought it was neat and looked slick

Solid pacing? Now that's a new one. The series progression is often cited as one of the weaker aspects of Escaflowne, due to the fact that it was cut short to 26 episodes as opposed to the original 39.

Anyway, what did you think of the movie? Did you watch it?


I have major ADD so the fact that shit was always happening made this "long" show bareabe, but I do appreciate that some plot beats weren't allowed a moment to breathe before the show moved swiftly on to other things, a shame considering how much I love the theme


It was pretty enjoyable to watch once but the main character gets annoying at times. I preferred the movie.


All I remember is that snail scene, gross. I think I enjoyed the series though


I watched the movie but never got around to watching the show.
On to the list it goes.


Thanks for making this thread. I was looking for something else to watch. I've started it and it's sucked me right in.


hope you enjoyed it Wiz, glad to have introduced you to it

>download this because it looks pretty nice
>it's dubbed
My own fault for not checking



I can't decide whether or not this is my favorite mecha series. Underrated series that never gets the praise it deserves.


Not really underrated since it was praised back then but forgotten among new audiences. The series was really unpopular in Japan though


>unpopular in Japan
Really? I thought only popular tv anime got movies. It could explain while the movie changed so much of the characters and story though. I disliked the movie as it watered-down the character design (no distinct noses) and made the personalities a caricature of the tv counterparts. The movie OST especially Black Escaflowne was lit though.


It was the popularity the show had outside of Japan that led to the production of the movie funnily enough. Popular enough in western countries like in Germany for example


Why did they totally change the OP music?


I'm not sure if this is my favorite mecha or not. The number of anime and things that I enjoy in general seems to be decreasing so who knows if I would even still like this show if I watched it again.


I have never seen any modern fantasy anime movies with the epic feel of the movie. How tf does a 2000 movie beat out everything fantasy today


Isekai done right. Hate isekai when it's so video-gamey that there's stats everywhere…
