Thrilling climax but wanted more for the ending by hneline1 May 29, 2002 - 1:26 PM PDT

This disk contains the final three episodes of the series. There are several thrilling battle episodes, including one where an ally uses a devastating bomb and one where Allen and Van finally fight in their battle armor. There are more relationship revelations and we learn more about the Zaibach emperor's plan, which may or may not turn out to be evil. As a series, I liked this anime as an excellent fantasy adventure with solid action intermingled with romance. The series presents itself as a grand saga and it doesn't disappoint. Also, it doesn't have the nudity that often appears on action anime, so the parental guidance is mainly for the battle violence. I did think that the series could have had more character depth (I'm probably going to get flamed for this ;-)) and the final romantic outcome didn't seem convincing to me. All in all, however, if you like swords and sorcery type stories, this is definitely a must-see anime. This disk also contains a sneak peak at the Escaflowne movie and some outtakes from the Escaflowne video game, where Van and Hitomi and Merle ride the dragon to our Earth and get chased by fighter jets, among other silly scenes.
