Dropping in altitude, sir.

- How's the engine?

- Normal, sir.

Is the load too heavy?

No, sir. It should be fine.

Does he think that the armor

is going to rise from the dead?

Who the hell are you?

Can't stabilize the altitude.

We're going around the

mountain and flying over Sasu.

General?

We have no choice.

That armor is absolutely

essential to our Clan.

We must deliver it to

Commander Folken.

Stay calm!

It's just one enemy!

Kill him!

What's the problem?

There's only one man!

How can that be?!

He's alone!

So, you are the dragon

we've heard so much about.

I will slay all my enemies!

Dragon Armor...

Awaken from your long slumber!

Your name is Escaflowne!

You are my armor!

Who are you?

Dozing off again?

Cutting classes and

dozing off again, Hitomi?

I was dreaming.

Dreaming?

Of my childhood.

Oh, the one you told me

about a long time ago?

About the man you saw

at Tokyo Station?

A man in strange clothes.

Daydreaming?

Why am I dreaming that now?

Because you're frustrated?

What?!

Go out and find a boyfriend.

You're having that dream

because you have nothing to do.

Why don't you drop in

on our club?

I can't.

Why not?

Because I dropped out

of the track team.

I'd feel awkward.

The juniors miss you.

It's too exhausting.

Besides, my leg hurts.

You're pathetic.

Yes, I am.

What's that?

What?

What's this? It's addressed to me.

Wait! No!

- Why are you so upset?

- Give it back!

Because I have to rewrite it!

But it's addressed to me.

Give it back!

Yukari!

Let's see.

"To Miss Yukari Uchida..."

"I am going to die.

Farewell, Yukari."

"...Hitomi Kanzaki."

What is this?

Zero talent in writing.

No vocabulary.

Leave me alone.

Don't die with those

pathetic last words.

I'd be embarrassed

as your friend.

Don't worry.

I'm too much of a coward.

If you're going to die,

let me know first, all right?

I'll even join you.

You don't have to.

I'll go on living and

become an old granny...

...and continue to live

until it's my time to go.

You're coming with

me tomorrow, right?

Remember your promise.

Yeah, you're right.

Give me a wake-up call.

You're always napping

during class lately.

Why can't you get up

in the morning?

Are you going out late at night?

No, it's not like that.

It's just that I always feel sleepy.

I feel sleepy all the time.

Maybe something's

wrong with me?

I wonder why.

Maybe I'm too exhausted.

Everyone looks so well.

But I'm not.

That's why I sleep.

In sleep, I can fade away...

...and no one will notice.

But nothing changes.

Even if I was to fade away,

nothing changes.

There's been an accident

at Yoyogi station.

We apologize for

the inconvenience...

...but we will be held here

momentarily.

We apologize for

the inconvenience...

It's terrible.

There's been an accident.

There's nothing

we can do about it.

Hey, cut it out!

Come on!

What's the matter?

Someone's calling me.

Hitomi, you've been

acting so strange these days...

...dropping out of the

track team and everything.

I am the manager of the team,

you know.

I have to explain all this

to the coach.

Don't worry about me.

Hitomi...

How annoying...

Just leave me alone.

Forget about me.

I see...

How annoying...

I have to stop off somewhere,

so I'll see you tomorrow.

Just fade away...

...annoying girl.

Just fade away...

...annoying girl who

hurts her friend.

Just fade away...

Someone, please...

Yes, let everything fade away...

Let this sad world...

Let everything fade away.

Come, my kindred spirit.

From the world beyond...

...come join me.

The Chosen One.

Who? Me?

You are the Wing Goddess.

You will fulfill our

world's prophecy.

To our world, Gaea...

I bid you welcome, Wing Goddess.

The Earth?

Is this a dream?

Or a vision?

No, this must be real.

My wish has come true.

The Mystic Moon...

...how beautiful you are.

No wonder it's called

a cursed armor.

It only invites misfortune.

So, all the participants

have arrived.

The dragon armor

is coming alive!

Millerna, it's the flying ship!

Is it the Black Dragon Clan?

It's coming straight at us!

Just as I predicted, right?

You better pay me well for this.

Sure.

I can hardly wait...

Boss, can we really

shoot it down?

Don't worry about Van.

Boss, maybe you're

overestimating him.

Lord Van, Lord Van, Lord Van...

Lord Van!

Shoot it down!

Reeden! Shoot it!

It's alive.

What happened?

Why have we stopped?

What's going on?

Someone help me!

Who are you?

You're the...

Are you the Wing Goddess?

You are the Wing Goddess.

The Wing...?

What are you talking about?

I am a descendant

of the Dragon Clan.

My name is Van.

I beseech you,

as the Wing Goddess...

...to allow me the honor of

serving you in this world Gaea.

Me?

Armed with this Escaflowne,

I will wipe out...

...all those who oppose your will.

All.

Just fade away...

I don't understand.

Where am I? This place...

Escaflowne?

What's wrong?!

What's happening?!

It's gone!

Escaflowne...

...is gone!

What is this place?

What is this?

Was it you?

Were you the one who

sent it away?

What are you talking about?

Isn't it true?

Who the hell are you?

Why were you hiding inside of it?

Answer me!

You should answer him, Hitomi.

I see.

Are you a spy from

the Black Dragon Clan?

Then, I'll kill you!

Hold it, Van.

Don't interfere, Allen!

You don't need to kill her.

She sent away the Dragon Armor!

Maybe. Maybe not.

Let her live.

She may be useful to us.

Besides, I don't want to

see a woman's blood spilt.

Don't tell me what to do!

I'll kill anyone who

stands in my way!

Try me!

What are they doing?!

What are those two doing?!

Van, stop it!

If the chief were serious...

...you'd be a dead man now.

Gaddes!

It's childish using a knife!

I didn't hit a vital part.

I should hope not!

Captain Gaddes, are you

being scolded by the princess?

Reeden, come down here!

Sorry, sir. I was only joking.

Hey! Is that a woman?

It is!

I thought she was a man

because of her short hair.

Van must have snatched her

from somewhere.

She's the legendary Wing Goddess

foretold since ancient times!

She's the one who will guide

Gaea to a new world!

Praise be...

Praise be...

Shut up, you quack fortune teller!

Allen, is she the one?

Probably.

I see.

So, she's the Wing Goddess.

She's just like us,

from her looks, anyway.

Hey, Van?

Whoa!

I'll fight you anytime, Van.

Don't pick on Lord Van!

The scoundrel...!

Lord Van!

Oh, no! You're bleeding!

You bastard, you always make

Lord Van do the dangerous work!

I'll poison you someday!

Wing Goddess,

please do not worry.

We welcome you.

You must be exhausted after

your journey from the heavens.

Please rest at our caravan.

Grant us the Dragon's power

and the shelter of your wings.

Please...

...join us.

Is it you, Dune?

You are a fool.

That's why the sign

was not on your side.

I'll kill Van with my

own two hands...

...Father.

Lord Folken.

Has the Wing Goddess

descended?

Yes.
