The popular anime series Escaflowne gets the feature length treatment on this disc that contains a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS Surround. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include storyboards. While this Pioneer release should be of interest to anime enthusiasts, there is little here for the average DVD consumer.

He hath descended unto yet another lo doth Geum Ja ..still she hunteth and stalketh the black night. Possessed she is.. helpless. The Dragonlord Mechetron
I bought the movie and dont get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Escaflowne. Thing was I bought it BRAND NEW and thats what I expected to get. Sure it was wrapped like new but when I looked on the film side (bottom of the cd where it counts) there was a couple drops of unknown substance like soap or something. It upset me. I am a cheap skate and look only for bargains but I only buy bargains if its in new condition. I was Some what Unpleased with the results. I wanted to return it but didnt want to have to wait longer for the replacement -.- email rashelleym@gmail if youd like to talk it out.
At first, I was reluctant to see this because I heard that it was different from the tv series (REALLY different)...but then, I had a change of heart and bought it anyway. And WOW. The animation is BEAUTIFUL!! You can see right away how detailed the shawdowing and drawings are!! And the story is good too, even though it was totally different from the tv series. I loved it!!! ^^
This movie is a bit gory, and the ending leaves you thinking, but it also makes you love it!
I feel sorry that Escaflowne had stood under the shadow of Evangelion.
Some people may be rather criticising towards Escaflowne:A Girl In Gaia; you constantly hear that it can't be topped, because of the outstanding level of the series before. But, casting the series aside, the Escaflowne Movie, is, in essence, a darn good movie! It delivers an exciting storyline, remoriable characters, stunningly gorgeous animation and a music score to make your heart melt. A great set of voice actors, both in English and the original Japanese version, who deliver their lines almost spot on... Even though I admit, the series is better, I cannot deny my love for this film. Series-to-Movie programmes usually go disasterously, but in my opinion, this one has come up trumps!! A must see!
I've never actually seen it, but i saw a preview for it on adult swim, and it looked pretty cool
This is my absolute favourite animé. It's similar to the series, yet unique in it's own way.
Well this movie, to be honest, I was not to sure about buying, some of my friends said dont do it, its not worth buying but you know what it is worth buying, the quality of animation and the story plot was great and it leaves you wanting more, I think you would enjoy this anime, it gives you a lot of deep thinking and excitement, well worth buying.
Without giving things away, the way the plot was adapted from TV to film was amazing. While many fans were disappointed in the series, the movie is more than redeeming.
This movie was to be a theatrical relese for Escaflowne the series, but it's a big hit! Without Hitomi's unusual tarot-card readings every scene and Merle's obsessive disliking of her, this movie really has smoothed out the rougher points of the series. Folken is made to look more powerful and less down-to-earth, which makes him look weaker in the series. But this, of course, is just the beginning. I suggest this movie to anyone and everyone who has heard of Escaflowne and fell in love with it. And even if you haven't, this movie will maybe change your opinion. (It sure changed mine.)
I really enjoyed this movie. The animation was great and the ending left you wanting more, but at the same time if the ending wasn't what it was then it would have made the movie incomplete. I recommend it to anyone who likes anime.
While this movie has stunning graphics and a well written storyline, it failed to catch my attention as in the Escaflone series. I was looking forward to great sword fights and more use of the Escaflone. Most of the movie gradually introduces you to the world of Gaia and not enough action to get the blood pumping.
Let me tell you something .. simply its one of the best for animation fans, animators, designers and any artist.
Escaflowne the series was quite a great series, but the movie falls tradgically short of its predecessor. A Girl in Gaea doesn't have quite as good animation as the series had. The characters look quite...rugged. The storyline just didn't catch my attention like the series did.
this is my favorite movie in the world!!! i mean combining romance and robotic armor is just out of this world.plus ths is a cross-genre of science fiction and fantasy, which i would like to call''new science fiction'' anyways this is just the must see movie that i just can't not watch. SO WATCH IT!!!
The art is great and the plot is wonderful! This is one of my favorite movies of all time!!! ^_^
While this Anime feature does not have the visual impact of Princess Mononoke. The sound track of Yoko Kanno is absolutely spell binding. Sora, The Dragon Song reaches into to your soul, While the battle scenes are backed by an orchestral, choral performance which makes the battle between the white and black Escaflowne armor special. Without this musical back drop Escaflowne would not have the impact this romance story would other wise have.
This is basically the entire series crammed into a movie, which I thought wasn't too good of an idea. The basic concept of this movie is great and it can really catch your interest, but I'd suggest getting the series instead because they're pretty much the same thing. This is a little light on the details, and it doesn't explain the characters like it should. The series goes in depth and side tracks on each persons own love story, which I thought was interesting. In conclusion, a good movie, but the actual series is much better.
the moive was good but not as the manga or seris is the movie is to compacted in to one dvd and i recommend u read the manga and watch the series
This is definitely one of my all time favorite movies. I am a big fan of manga and when i saw Escaflowne: The Movie, i kept watching it over and over. the story line of this movie was great and the art and voice overs were perfect. this is definitely a movie i will never stop watching.
Another one of my favorites next to Princess Mononoke. This is a story of its own than the show, Escaflowne is about a girl who is magically sent to another world in order to help the people who's world is being taken over by the main characters brother thus releasing the legendary weapon called Escaflowne.
