Has anyone ever noticed that the escaflowne (movie) theme and eva are like the exact same? I mean come on, hitome has a choice to kill everyone on gaea to get rid of all sorrow, then she stops cus... i dunno why lol, but isn't that just like the HIP? but instead of everyone dieing though, we become one... kinda sounds similar to me.

hmp... so quick to judge, so quick to dismay. If your gana say something sucks you might wana atleast try and explain why, because a comment like that just takes up space, and sends no direction to anything.

I've only seen the move, and I really didn't get the same " vibe" from it that I got from eva. That and cat girls are evil and should all be shot.

Escaflowne the Movie sucks. The TV series r0x0rz, and if you don't agree, you suck!

Just kidding.

But seriously, Escaflowne and Evangelion have nothing in common. Except perhaps the Almighty Plot Hole.

I've only seen the move so I'll take you word for it. As long as I can kill the cat girls.

Take my word as well. The only similarity I can see is that people pilot things.

Yeah thats what i ment by similar. I wouldn't say that the movie sucks, in my opinion it could be better though, but the tv series does kick its ass.(even though their noses on the tv series look like that of an elephant)

I enjoyed the Escaflowne movie, being that it's all that I've seen. I hope to eventually share your disdain for it.

Was the movie not a condensation of the series? If so, I can't see anything that points to any connections with Eva, and in fact, that "choice" was completely omitted from the movie, IIRC.

The movie is an alternate world, with the same cast of characters, but with very different personalities and situations. The movie was OK, but the TV series rox

Elephants' noses are long, pointy, and capable of impalement?

(Oh, wait... I already did something like that recently, didn't I?)

The character designs are a bit strange, but it doesn't bother me that much. Just shift your focus from the noses to the awesome Kanno soundtrack and you'll be fine.

I hate how everyone thinks if you think somethings crappy/bad you always have to frickin' explain yourself. I bet if I said it was awesome you wouldn't have said "Explain why it's awesome".

Well I think the shows decently good but not great either. I really liked Escaflownes plot but a lot of the characters I found a bit irritating.
