Biography

Please fix your tags, 天空のエスカフローネ is NOT an artist. The actual composers of the music are 菅野よう子 and 溝口肇. The opening theme "Yakusoku Wa Iranai" is preformed by 坂本真綾.

The Vision of Escaflowne (天空のエスカフローネ, Tenkū no Esukafurōne?, lit. Escaflowne of the Heavens) is a 26-episode anime television series created by Sunrise and directed by Kazuki Akane. It premiered in Japan on April 2, 1996 at 6:00 p.m. on TV Tokyo and ended September 24, 1996. It has elements from the genres of shōjo, shōnen, romance, and mecha, and has since inspired a shōnen manga and shōjo manga series, a video game, and an Escaflowne theatrical movie.

The series focuses on the heroine, Hitomi Kanzaki, and her adventures after she is transported to the world of Gaea, a mysterious planet where she can see Earth and its moon in the sky. On Gaea, Earth is known as the Mystic Moon or "Phantom Moon" (幻の月, Maboroshii no tsuki?). Hitomi's latent psychic powers are enhanced on Gaea and she quickly becomes embroiled in the conflicts between the Zaibach Empire and several more peaceful countries. As the series progresses, many of the characters' pasts and motivations, as well as the true nature of the planet Gaea, are revealed.

This series marked the anime debut (in a lead role) of Maaya Sakamoto as the voice of the main character Hitomi Kanzaki and as the singer of the opening song "Yakusoku wa Iranai", as well as of many other songs in the series.
The music, composed by Yoko Kanno and Hajime Mizoguchi, is of a decidedly European flavor, though it also incorporates different styles such as contemporary, classical, and Gregorian chant.
