Old School Anime
Escaflowne is about an average teenage high school girl named Hitomi, who finds herself mysteriously transported to the planet Gaea when a boy named Van Fanel appears on her track at school while battling a dragon. In Gaea, she is caught in the middle of a war along with Van as the Zaibach Empire, with help from Van's brother Folken, attempts to take over Gaea. Hitomi along with Van, whom we find out is the King of Fanelia, Allen (an Asturian Knight), and Millerna (Princess of Asturia) must band together to stop the Zaibach Empire. It is revealed that with Hitomi's newly developed fortune telling powers, they are finally able to awaken the mysterious mech Escaflowne, under Van's control and to stop Zaibach's plans. These fantastic photos were taken during Anime St. Louis 2018 by our wonderful friend Thomas Ricks. This was another passion project of LaKinta and RenChan along with our friends who came together to bring this old school anime to life. Cosplayers: Van Fanel (RN NINJA), Hitomi Kanzaki (LaKinta), Merle (RenChan), Millerna (Fuji Cakes), and Folken (Wicked Warlock).
