Release: Jan 14, 2018 - Author: Once - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB - more from this series

 

In 2013, the German label Nipponart released a new box set of Escaflowne. The important thing: The episodes 1 to 4 and 6 & 7 are now available as regular TV Version and longer Director's Cuts. The quality of said release is enhanced as well.

 

The opening and ending match the ones from the TV Version. In other words, the quality of those is inferior to the rest of the Director's Cut episodes but that is acceptable.

 

Compared are the TV Version and the Director's Cut (both available in the German Collector's Edition box set by Dybex/Nipponart.

 

 

The sixth episode only contains 2 new scenes but those make sense. Especially the new scene with Hitomi (10:03) is a nice introduction to the subsequent  one (when Hitomi shows up in a dress). In addition  to that, several scenes have been altered for the DC. Other than that, the DC contains a few longer and also shorter scenes but that does not really matter.

At the end of the day, the DC is 123.5 seconds longer.
