From the beginning to the end, I couldn't stop watching this anime. It all begins with Hitomi Kanzaki, an average high school girl, who happens to be one of the best runner in her school. She also has the unique ability to foresee the future and a gift in fortune telling. She begins having visions of another world, and how she will encounter a mysterious knight, possibly ruler of this strange world.
One day, all of her visions come true, as a huge dragon appears in front of her and the mysterious knight from her dream comes to save her. Hitomi manages to see the dragon's next moves, and tells the knight what to do. As soon as the dragon is defeated, both the knight and Hitomi are transported by a ray of light to the world she saw earlier in her visions.
The knight introduces himself as Van Fanel, prince and heir to the throne of Fanelia. He is also the only one able to pilot Fanelia's ultimate weapon, the giant robot Escaflowne.
From here and until the end, a lot of fights follow, brilliantly animated and of course a love story between the three main protagonists of the show: Hitomi, Van and Allen, a knight of Asturia. The series has a lot of twists and turns, and as soon as you think everything has been revealed, another mystery appears. But in the end everything is answered and you will be amazed of how much actually happened in the show.
Even if it's an "old" series, the animation is great, and you won't be disappointed by it. And I can't finish this review without mentioning the superb music this show has to offer.
This show is a must see for any anime fans out there.
