A combination of standard, stiff TV-style animation and snazzy-looking digital effects that do little to disguise the fact that the characters barely move.

Audience Reviews for Escaflowne: The Movie

Loved the ending to the OVA but still enjoyed the film, although Folken killed in the way he was just didn't do it for me...

Super Reviewer

This is a retelling of the anime of the same name, but is sooooo much better. I ~loved~ the ending.

Curt C

Super Reviewer
