I'm a BIG fan of the TV series, but I did not watch the Escaflowne movie. Was it better than the tv series or at least on par?

 

I luv the Escaflowne tv series soundtrack, is the movie's just as good?

I read a review which says that the movie is an alternate retelling of the whole series. So if u have seen the series, u'd have seen the movie. Plus the series would have more plot and character development.

Cowboy Bebop (both TV and movie) is nice. Infact, my friend who just watch the movie has no problem understanding and enjoying the show. So you can just get the movie if you want...

Ah! My Goddess - if you are into romance, you'll like this.

 

You might want to look into these too

If u want movies, can try Wicked City, Metropolis, Spriggan, Ghost In The Shell, Perfect Blue, Vampire Hunter D and all of Miyazaki's movies (like Totoro, Princess Mononoke, Laputa, etc).

this is what the reviewer in animeondvd.com stated:

 

After a very successful TV series, it was pretty obvious that a movie was going to be done. Since this is a Bandai production, one of the things they do is something I really like, in that they take the same setting and characters but retell the story in a different way, one more suited to the big screen as opposed to trying to continue a completed series or make a direct adaptation.

.

bla bla

As much as I enjoy the TV series, from start to finish, I won't do any comparisons between the feature and that, as it's a pointless exercise. After my second time seeing the movie, I'm moving towards liking it better than the series, but the two are really different beasts and comparisons just get silly.

Oh yeah, how can I forget titles by Studio Ghibli?!

from what i read from the review, I think there is no alternate ending in the movie. just that they summarise the whole series for the movie. expect faster pace.
