Does the simple things, but does them well.
Escaflowne is not an original series by any stretch of the imagination. Just a straight-up, solid slab of old fashioned heroic, epic fantasy really. Yet for it to keep you gripped so intensely almost from the word go must suggest it must do something right. Now this would be the execution I would be talking about. To cut a long story short, Escaflowne is a thing of beauty. Beautiful in its design, beautiful in its style, its looks, its sounds and most importantly beautiful in its actions. What we have it a wonderful mesh of high-grade production, some fantastic set-pieces, a magnificent soundtrack, and all that tacked onto a story that actually means something. If you like your fantasy epic and old-school, then really there is not a piece of work on the small screen that I could recommend highly enough.
