Recently rewatched Vision of Escaflowne for the first time in years. What a great show that was: great music, gorgeous scenery, interesting character design and world-building, legendary Japanese voice acting. It ended a bit abruptly, but still, a classic.

And then I rewatched the movie. What a pile of crap it was. I think it represents the biggest drop in quality between a series and ‘The Movie’ in all anime.
