Are there any fans here of Escaflowne? It's one of my top favorite anime series. I love how it combines elements from different genres. Like you have your shoujo romance themes, epic fantasy adventures, and sci-fi mecha battles all in one story. Even though the series is almost 20 years old now, the animation still looks very elegant and gorgeous and the music is still one of Yoko Kanno's greatest soundtrack works. I love Van and Hitomi's relationship and seeing how they mature throughout the story. The other characters are all wonderful too, like Allen, Millerna, and even Mearle. I also love how the series is always fast paced and action packed and keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting to find out what happens next. I know a lot of fans hate the movie, and while I love the series more, I still enjoy the movie for what it was, as an alternate more mature take on the story of Escaflowne. I somehow wish there was another season to this series or that they would reboot it for modern times or something. It was just such a perfect anime series and you don't seem to get epic fantasy adventure anime this unique like that these days anymore. What are your favorite Escaflowne characters, your favorite episodes, and what you love about the show in general?
