Overview

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.

While this Pioneer release should be of interest to anime enthusiasts, there is little here for the average DVD consumer.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
A re-interpretation the 1996 TV series seen recently on Fox Kids, Escaflowne: The Movie is an outstanding action-adventure, pure and simple. A bored high school girl named Hitomi finds herself whisked away from her mundane life in Tokyo to a war-torn parallel world called Gaia lorded over by a feudal clan. Turns out Hitomi is the fabled Wing Goddess of prophecy and gets to pilot a robot-like giant suit of living armor called Escaflowne. Whether in Japan or in the West, few anime films have been given the treatment on home video that Escaflowne: The Movie enjoys. For the remarkable Ultimate Edition, a sturdy blue box opens up to reveal three separate, bonus-packed DVDs and a 20-page booklet. The first contains the film itself, along with an isolated score and optional real-time storyboards. The second disc offers a wealth of Escaflowne extras, including a "making of" featurette, an art gallery, and footage from the film's premiere. The third disc affords the original soundtrack. With an expansive package like this, even newcomers will be impressed by the amount of work and depth of creativity involved in bringing such a film to the screen. Fans of the show and film will be in heaven. Volk Lindsay
