- 2 Seasons
Magic Knight Rayearth began its course as a Japanese manga series created by the highly acclaimed, all-female staff of CLAMP (then including the talents of Ageha Ohkawa, Mokona, Satsuki Igarashi, and Tsubaki Nekoi). Published in Japan by Kodansha and in the United States by Tokyopop and Dark Horse, this delightful series was an instant success. It was converted into an anime directed by Toshihiro Hirano and written by CLAMP writer Ageha under the name Nanase Ohkawa. Produced by Yomiuri TV and Tokyo Movie Shinsha in Japan originally, it was quickly picked up in the US by Media Blaster and dubbed by Bang Zoom! Entertainment. Combining the genres for action, adventure, mecha, and magical girl, Magic Knight Rayearth opens in modern day Tokyo where three fourteen year old girls from different schools, passionate Hikaru Shidou, elegant Umi Ryuuzaki, and gentle Fuu Hououji, meet for the first time and are transported to a magical world where the strength of magic is controlled by the heart. Desperate to get back home, these girls are tasked with waking the ancient and powerful Rune Gods, rescuing Princess Emeraudee from the High Priest Zagato, and bringing all of Cephiro out of danger.
