Funimation has recently begun streaming a new dub clip for their dub on the The Vision of Escaflowne. The latest clip features the main female protagonist, Hitomi, as she meets Van Fadel for the first time. The Vision of Escaflowne will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 18, 2016.
Hitomi Kanzaki is a typical girl who runs on the track team and has an affinity for tarot reading. When a young man suddenly appears bringing a dragon along with him, Hitomi’s fate is forever altered. She is swept away in a beam of light and taken to a new world known as Gaea.
Gaea is a strange world; here humanoid animals can walk and talk, and soldiers fight in giant mecha suits known as Guymelefs. Hitomi finds herself in the country of Fanelia where a strange young man, named Van Fanel is soon to be king. But misfortune befalls Fanelia when invisible enemies attack, burning the kingdom to the ground. Hitomi is now in a world on the brink of war. And she may have the power to stop it.
Using the magnificent Guymelef Escaflowne, Van and Hitomi must find a way to stop the evil Zaibach Empire and get Hitomi back home. But she’ll have to hone her powers and learn how delicate fate and destiny truly are.
