About Escaflowne TV Complete Series/Movie Collector's Edition Blu-ray

The Vision of Escaflowne TV Complete Series + Movie Collector's Edition contains episodes 1-26 plus the Movie.

Hitomi Kanzaki is an ordinary high school girl who runs track and has an affinity for tarot reading. But when a brash young man named Van appears from a beam of light at her high school, Hitomi is spirited away to a mysterious new world called Gaea. On Gaea, Hitomi is a stranger in a strange land.

Soldiers in magnificent armored mechs, or Guymelefs, wreak havoc around her. Humanoid animals walk and talk like people, and foreign empires are embroiled in an increasingly violent war. On top of that, Hitomi discovers her ability to read tarot cards is due to a secret power more potent than she'd ever imagined, and her newfound ability makes her both an asset and a target. 

To save the world of Gaea and return to her own, Hitomi must unravel the mystery of her powers, Van's past, and the powerful Escaflowne.

A sweeping tale of love and war, The Vision of Escaflowne was a seminal series that influenced anime's worldwide popularity. Directed by Kazuki Akane, this beautifully animated adventure features epic music, memorable characters, and an unforgettable love story.

It's a shame that the Kickstarter buyers are having so many issues, but I can't deny this product the 5 stars I think it deserves.



Escaflowne is a true classic, but like my other reviews, I'm just going to focus on what's physically included in this release, and the quality of the items.



Firstly, you get all 26 episodes of the show and the movie, both remastered for 1080p HD. The video is a bit grainy, but it was animated in the 90's, so there's no avoiding it. The quality of the linework is top notch. This release also includes the original Japanese, the English dub from 2001, and FUNimation's all new dub. The audio for all three tracks is excellent. The set is contained in a chipboard box, and it includes an artbook, and a replica of Hitomi's pendant. The pendant itself looks nice, but it's probably best used for display only.



Just so you know, the set IS missing some bonus features from the original release; most notably the PS1 game footage, but it's not a big grievance.

The set is nice but not what I received compared to the pictures shown - no clear cases and the pendant what in a box attached to the outside of the collector's box. This is also a little spendy (probably to follow in line with the pricing of the kickstarter). Have not seen the show only purchased because it seemed to be popular.
