(Anime Limited goes crazy pimping, part II...)
Glasgow-based distributor Anime Limited released three royally decorated Blu-ray boxes this week, and we're covering all of them. Yesterday saw the pretty wooden box
of the Miss Hokusai
release, tomorrow we'll look at Fullmetal Alchemist
, but today we check out The Vision of Escaflowne
One of the classic anime series of the nineties, The Vision of Escaflowne
is a great mish-mash of genres, starting as a teen school romance before plunging into fantasy, and evolving into hardcore science fiction. I mean, steam-punk flying dragon harnesses? Whoa!
However, the mish-mash turned out great, helped by great characters, great design, excellent music, and prudent use of those newfangled-yet-pretty (at the time) cgi techniques. To this day, the series has a lot of fans. I must resist the urge to launch in a full-scale review here.
But this is not a review. It is a look at the packaging job Anime Limited did on this, their Escaflowne
Ultimate Edition box, which houses both the series and the 2000 movie it spawned. Here is a gallery of shots. Click on the edge of the pictures to scroll through them, or at the center of each to see a bigger version.
And here it is: a big tough cardboard slipcase.
