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.
