I am a BIG fan of all the Final Fantasy games and Animes. I think this is pretty good but is lacking some of the story elements. Other than that it's an overall good movie. I also think it's quite funny. If your not a fan of the seiries this isn't for you.

When I heard there was a Final Fantasy anime OVA series based on Final Fantasy V, I was excited beyond words. Final Fantasy V was quite possibly my favorite Final Fantasy game ever, and as an avid anime fan, this would seem like a perfect combination.
Boy, was I wrong.
The bulk of the plot revolves around the main female character's rear end glowing, and there's only so many times that a gag like that can be even the slightest bit funny. The plot is thin and doesn't make much sense. "Final Fantasy: The Anime" takes place years after Final Fantasy V. This was its first problem. The ending of Final Fantasy V leaves a lot of room for expansion. There could've been any number of great plots created about the adventures of Batz, Lenna, Faris and Kururu after vanquishing Ex-Death. "Final Fantasy: The Anime" is more like a sequel to Final Fantasy V than a continuation, and this was one of the biggest problems.
Unfortunately, somewhere along the way of deciding the plot should be a sequel of sorts to Final Fantasy V, the producers decided to throw in as many references to the game as possible. From a visage of the heroes of Final Fantasy V, to even a guest appearance by the ghost of Mid. None of this makes much sense, really.
Even for a seven-year-old series, the animation is extremely poor. I certainly wouldn't be able to tell this was supposed to be a high-budget OVA series by looking at it at first glance. The character designs are ugly, sloppy, and a discrace to Final Fantasy.
It's painful to see a great story like Final Fantasy V to be turned into an abomination like this. Don't buy it. Don't even rent it like I did. Don't even see it. It's not even about the money. It's just plain painful for anyone who's ever played Final Fantasy V to watch this.

This movie is REALLY cool! I say that for both of them, even though I'm only reviewing one. I'd have to anyway, because they both equal out as one whole movie. It's pretty funny much of the time; not serious like FFVIII or FFVI. I like how they connected it to FF5, so that it has some relation to Final Fantasy. Otherwise, the only thing FF about it would be the title. All in all, if you are an FF fan, or just an Anime fan, I recommend it.

Okay, so you have a kid, with some serious mental problems (Prezt) a really cool bike, a REAALLY big sword, and a whole bunch of explosives. Toss in the story line, which is he is the doglike traveling (in doglike I mean he is loyal to the boot and will never desert his lady, not doglike as in Inu Yasha doglike) companion to Linyal (or what ever her name is) the desendant of the valient ones, and has the elemental crystal of wind in her body. These two are trying to find the other 3 stones, and are being chased around by some mean mecha dudes, an army officer and some bimbo pirate chick in leather, who likes whips. Prezt is hilarous, and always has some stupid but funny comback for every situation (even though he might die any second, he's got something funny to say). His bike is awsome! His sword fighting is cool, and his trigger happy tendencies (when in doubt, blow it up! Bombs are the answer to all your problems, ect. ect.) seem to remind me of Lina Inverse of Slayers and her over kill dragon slave. This Anime is pretty good, the dubbing is great (although Prezt has this funny voice that should belong to a 30 year old man, not a teen-ager) the artwork is groovy. This is a good Anime for kids too, not sicky sweet or overly cute like Pokemon, and not blood, gore, nudity and violence that people think Anime is. If your a fan of Slayers, DBZ, Sailor Moon, Ranma 1/2, Inu Yasha, or Lum, you'll like this. THe only thing is, it doesn't really follow the storyline of any of the games, so you might be a bit confused at first. But you'll catch on!

This cutesy anime set in the "Final Fantasy World" A world of mix-tech. Where the Sword Wielders and the Sky Travelers collide. This Anime is worth it just to see how things would be if science slid backwards and forwards, all at the same time.
Our hero weilds and amazing sword and rides one of the awesomest bikes in Anime (okay, it's nothing next to the Akira bike.. but come on, what is?) Our hero has everything a guy could need, A cute girl, unwilling sidekicks, a ugly villian and some cool bombs.
The animation is awesome, almost a style unto itself. Plot is humourus and remians light hearted even in it's darkest hours. The charecters are all unique and you will easily find yourself wishing you were a part of it.
Buy it, Watch it, Enjoy it.. have dun ^,^

When I rented Final Fantasy vol. 1 I was expecting something like Akira or Ninja Scroll, what I got was something a million times worse. I found the characters in the movie to be way too goofy and the plot wasn't that great either. I've heard that you have to play FF5 to really get the story but I don't think it would of changed my perspective.The movie was a disgrace to the Final Fantasy title.
