> Agreed. They have left out alot of minor things that are VERY important later in the story (for example, Van adding some of his blood to the Drag Energist before placing it into the Escaflowne, bonding him to the machine), and the hack job they've done otherwise almost makes it unwatchable. Still, I think the actually dubbing (except for one or two characters) as been done quite well. Especially for Van, Hitomi, Melulu (Merle I think in the dub), and Dulando. Makes me look forward to the DVDs.

antagonist A charges Antagonist-b.. cut ot Antagonist-A standing in a
heroic pose with ifst raised and Antagonist-B falling on his ass.. ugghh
