Well, Escaflowne's animation does slow down at around 14 or 15, where they
are at Chid's palace. One episode is almost totally made up of still shots
of figures far away and freeze frames with nothing but mouths flapping.
However, this only lasts about one episode and perks up again right after.

Look, there's only one Yoko Kanno. EVERY Kanno soundtrack rocks. To think
Fox wanted them to get rid of Esca's music! What blasphemy! Thank goodness
Bandai put their foots down.
