Do you remember your past? Do you know who your parents are? Himejima doesn't have these answers. She learns that her "parents" are not her real parents and that she was discovered in an old temple. When she returns there, she is taken to a different time, a different land: the land of her birth, where she must bring peace to the world before she can find her way home.
Hitomi was just a normal high school girl, until she was taken by the mysterious Van Fanel and dropped into a world of romance, magic and giant sword-wielding armor suits! Now Van, pilot of the famed armor suit Escaflowne; and Hitomi, whose hobby of predicting the future just became a frightening reality, must work together and fight the advanced technology of Zaibach: a force who want to shape Gaea to their visions of "peace". Follow Hitomi in her struggles against both these forces who seek to conquer this world, and her own confused heart.
Escaflowne begins the same way as Himiko-Den - a high school girl suddenly appears in another world. As she has special powers, she becomes the key to save this world. But Himiko Den is somehow cheap and parodic. So if you liked it, you should definitely check out Escaflowne which can provide you much more enjoyment.
