Final Fantasy: Unlimited is the second anime based on the popular video game series, Final Fantasy.


Originally scheduled for 52 weekly episodes (two seasons), due to box office failure of The Spirits Within, the aired series was halved, leaving a large amount of information omitted and the plot becoming rushed in the final stages. The Japanese DVDs used the subtitle Ikai no Sho (異界の章?, lit. Wonderland Chapter). As money became available, the series continued, first with the Final Fantasy: Unlimited After book (subtitled Gaikai no Sho (外界の章?, lit. Outside World Chapter)) which featured an 120-page script and 32-page manga.

Home release[]

On January 30, 2002, the Final Fantasy: Unlimited Prologue DVD (Phase.0) released which featured a story breakdown, development pieces, and interviews. The series was released in Japan on DVD and VHS in nine parts (referred to as "Phases") featuring two to three episodes. ADV Films released the anime on seven DVDs in North America and the United Kingdom, featuring production sketches, key animation backgrounds, preliminary illustrations, reversible covers, style guides, textless opening and closing animations, English voice actor commentary, character booklets, and an "FF:U Style Guide". A Final Fantasy: Unlimited Complete Collection was released on August 23, 2005 with the the episodes split between five DVDs.

The original Final Fantasy: Unlimited follows the story of Ai and Yu Hayakawa, two twelve year-old twins who travel into Wonderland, a mysterious parallel dimension, in search of their missing parents. Along the way they meet Lisa Pacifist, a member of the C2 Organization, Kaze, a being of incredible power, and a variety of other characters.

The series is divided into two major sections, defined by the protagonists' main mode of transport. In the first half, the group uses the Interdimensional Train to reach new worlds; in each episode, they emerge to view a new world, confront its inherent dangers, and stave off the latest assault by either the Gaudium Lords or the being known as Omega.

Meanwhile, Earl Tyrant's discussion with his lords reveals the story from the antagonists' perspective: Earl, the embodiment of Chaos, seeks the children, spawned of Chaos also, and the pieces of Omega, the ultimate destructive force, its powers only rivaled by those of the Unlimiteds, immortal beings of immense power. Should he collect these and absorb them into himself, he will be able to rule Wonderland unchallenged.

In the second half, the protagonists join up with the rebel faction, the Comodeen, and board the submarine, Jane, bound for Telos, the only place in Wonderland with a natural deposit of gravity-defying flight water, so they may use the airship Silvia to reach the Earl's flying fortress.

The series climaxes when the Earl himself makes a move on the Comodeen, destroying Jane and capturing the protagonists. Confronted with Chaos himself, Kaze and Makenshi, the only two surviving Unlimiteds, join forces and destroy it, thus ending its reign of terror over Wonderland.
