    You should mention the manga was in another plain of existance as well.

    On the mecha side, I like how they animated various gears moving as the mechas moved. I think it helped portraying this medieval feeling, or rather also a mix of renaissance as well (since they are back to back in history).

      I didn’t really want to touch on the manga(s) since…I’ve never read either of them >_< I didn't want to go running my mouth about something when I don't really have the experience or knowledge to back it up. But they're out there! I think one of them is aimed more at boys? and the other is more Shoujo? The mecha in this series are so original, I love them even though I wouldn't say I'm a big mecha fan. I always really liked the gears! and how they would show how Van would have to move his legs or arms to move Escaflowne. That was always really neat.

    I remember the days when I’m so furious about the love triangle on this series and all of those unexpected turn of events as well. The mecha part of the story was something I didn’t expect to like. And I’m a fan of this kind of traditional animation! /o/

    Yes, when we talk about character development, Van really did had the greatest development in the whole series. I could still remember when he tries to compare his self with his brother. (Although my memory about this anime is now hazy)

    Another thing about Hitomi, HER TAROT READING YEAAAHHHH /o/ I learned a lot about tarots because of this anime. haha

    Maybe I should re-watch this… >.>

      PS: You have no idea how I love the nose. haha

    • Tenderfoot says:

      You should definitely re-watch it! Especially if you haven’t seen it in a while; I always forget a lot of the smaller stuff that happens and am pleasantly surprised again and again. All those little Van and Hitomi moments! I always forget about like half of them and they always put a smile on my face when I see them again (They’re like the first couple I reealllly shipped). Plus, since Bandai is stopping its DVD production (at least for here in the US), now would be a good time buy it or re-watch it, since it might become hard to get.

      P.S. I love the noses too! I can’t think of another anime I’ve seen with noses like that. They’re one of a kind <3

        Meh, there’ torrent anyway, problem is… the seederssssss D:

        Yeah, I remember when I always squeal over such small moments where Van and Hitomi is and that ending is like… so precioussss~ <333

        I still remember myself laughing over Hitmo's heartbreak concerning Allen. bwahahahahahahaha!!! I was like a psycho back then. XD
