Escaflowne The Movie or the TV Series?
Which do you think is better of the two.
Personally I just finish watching the tv series and it is way better than the movie.
Escaflowne The Movie didnt really do anything for me.
I guess you cant fit 26 episodes in 1 1/2 hrs.
Let me know what you think.

Perfect skies tell the tides~~

There must be more than this provincial life.
Dreaming of far off places, daring sword fights,
magic spells and a prince in disguise

I want adventure in the great wide somewhere
I want it more than I can tell
And for once it might be grand
To have someone understand
I want so much more than they've got planned

I prefer the series so much more. somehow the movie seems so strange... random to some extent, I doubt I'd understand it if I didn't watch the series first.
I so agree that it's so disappointing that Hitomi didn't get to be with Van in the end >.<

hum... the serie is by far better... but i must say i don't dislike Van's design in the movie, he looks more... erm, manly.. XD but i hate Folken's new design in it...

but when it comes to the story, the series is more complete... the movie just cuts out all the characters only to concentrate on Van and Hitomi, and i don't think it was the best thing to do.

Well, I think the movie is a nice touch, but in a series, you get more out of the story than in a movie. So I have to say the series is better, yep, that's right!

the tv series.

the muvi is something that is kinda out of the series. i dont even think it has the same storyline. there's many differences from the series.
the artwork is not as good as the series, except that i think the muvi's escaflowne is better than the series' one.

The series started off really cool then progressively got worse in my opinion. I do really like the movie "Girl in Gaea" a lot.

A 26 episode series always beats a two hour movie.

I think the series was better than the movie, You get to know the characters a little more. But even so, the movie was still excellent.

people, the movie was never meant to be viewed as a continuation or a condensation of the series. In fact, it's a very very different story if you haven't noticed!!!

There is never an Abaharaki in the series, there is never a Black Dragon Clan in the series, and Millerna is not a rebel princess in the series, and there certainly is no Winged Goddess or only two melefs in the series.

so before you say that the series was more complete or more faithful to the story than the movie, realize that the movie is an alternate retelling. It's not the exact same story, nor was it ever meant to be.

The series: awesome -- one of my all time faves!
The movie: meh -- great animation (to be expected of a movie), but phewww, what a horrible film. I think they were trying to duplicate the success they had years before with the Macross Movie: Do You Remember Love?, but failed miserably!

The series is the best. The movie is so different it doesn't even come close to the series. I love the series. The movie sucks big time...

All the world's a stage. Men and women are merely players. They have their exits and entrances. And so they play their parts...

The series is way better then the movie. The movie seemed rushed to me, even though it was normal movie lenght. theres just so much to try to fit in, and it just couldnt do it. I hear the series is supposed to air again on Adult Swim, but i havent conformed or anything yet.

The series. It's far better than the movie.
