PostSubject: Magic Knight Rayearth   3rd July 2013, 8:45 am

I know we have a CLAMP topic, but I needed to create one separate from that. Also, I used the "Search" function and nothing came up, so SORRY MOD if this is a duplicate.

Now:

Magic Knight Rayearth


Magic Knight Rayearth (魔法騎士(マジックナイト)レイアース Majikku Naito Reiāsu?) is a Japanese manga series created by Clamp, a manga artist team made up by Satsuki Igarashi, Ageha Ohkawa, Tsubaki Nekoi and Mokona. Rayearth combines elements from the magical girl and mecha anime genres with parallel world fantasy. The manga was adapted into two anime series in 1994 and an original video animation (OVA) in 1997.

Hikaru Shidou, Umi Ryuuzaki, and Fuu Hououji are on a field trip to the Tokyo Tower (ALWAYS TOKYO TOWER) with their respective schools. The girls are blinded by a flash of light and hear a voice calling for the Legendary Magic Knights to save Cephiro. They fall through the sky into another world, Cephiro. Once there, they meet Master Mage Clef, who explains the dynamic of the magical land and that their [the city's] pillar has been kidnapped. Together and with the help of Mokona, they must awaken their mechas and fight whatever evil is taking place in the magical place.

The OVAs tell the same story in a different way.


So... Besides me, who am a big fan, who else here read the mangas/watched the anime?

it's a shoujo, but it has some mahou elements and some mechas, so even though we have romance as well, it's a good anime! and the manga is awesome! i have all 12 volumes of the manga in portuguese and i love it <3

Oh wow, I found it after Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon was introduction to Anime, I don't think in the states we ever had Rayearth on Tv. I mean I can be wrong but I don't remember it.

As far as I know, Rayearth never made it to TV, but it was dubbed and released on DVD. I've read all the manga (currently am rebuying it in Omnibus format since i never got all the original manga volume releases), but I've saddly never finished the anime. I've only watched the first season. WHICH IS SO AWESOME.

Magic Night Rayearth is probably my 2nd favorite mahou shoujo series and my favorite CLAMP series overall (CCS and Chobits coming after). The first season ending is just different than a lot of other mahou stories. It made the heroes think if they were really in the right to do what they did.

I don't know how much different the 2nd season is to its manga counterpart, but I always found the ending interesting. Especially with Mokona *doesn't say any spoilers*. Anyway, yeah. I love this series too! <3

yeah, there are some differences on the OVA and the manga... Mokona is one of them.

who's your favorite character? i like Umi a lot, because i was like her, you know? i was a prick, always thought of myself as higher than others and well, life happened and my would view changed a lot.

and of course, I LOVE MOKONA! he is adorable. i have a plushie of him (that my kid hijacked LOL). i also like lantis a lot.

I love Hikaru XD I love her free spirit and firey personality. I guess cause I'm similar to that also. lol 
Ohh Lantis is cool, but he only shows up in the second season. I don't think I've seen the Ova all the way through, I'll have to check up on that series again soon.

Hikaru and Fuu! I love them both. But I live Umi as well. I really just love their relationship and watching it develop, I like how there was more filler in the anime than themanga so you got to see more relationship development between the three. Smile

I just adore Rayearth! The characters, story, and especially the art. It was the first anime/manga I got into that I didn't watch on TV first. I picked up vol 3 at the library ages ago back on 02. I was udderly confused, but wanted to read what happened before it. Lol.

Even to this day the manga is still one of my top favorites, and one of few series I'm willing to have multiple versions of in my collection (1st and 2nd edition Tokyopop and Darkhorse printings, not fully complete though). I also have the anime series, don't have the OVA though (but I have seen it).

I'm the same way Knight! I have some of the old flipped versions and I have some of the tokyo pop ones (those aren't complete collections) and I bought the new omnibus. Just gotta get number 2 and i'll have it all! I'LL SOON GET ALL THE CLAMP. (cause they rereleased Clover too!)

I still need the 2nd omnibus myself. I'm bummed the pages are in the normal size instead of the larger size like what they did with Clover and CCS, and Tokyopop's first printings. I also forgot to mention I have the 2nd artbook, its the Tokyopop version though.

And... *grins as she holds up her omnibus copy of Clover*

Is it weird that I liked the OVA more than the TV series? I found the atmosphere much better, it felt similar to X's atmosphere. I wish they had done more of that alternative storyline.

I love Magic Knight Rayearth!  It's probably my second most favorite CLAMP show behind Cardcaptor Sakura at number one.  I love how it combines magical girls with mecha actions and has a great balance of action and adventure and romantic drama.  The ending to the first season is still one of the best anime plot twists and I love the darker nature of the second season but it still maintains its optimistic spirit.  The animation is a bit old school but I think it's still one of the better looking shows from the early 90s and I love the music, especially the theme songs.  Umi is probably my favorite character.  I love her feisty attitude but she still has a kind and compassionate side to her.  She reminds me of Sailor Mars who is my favorite Sailor Moon character which is probably why I love Umi a lot too.  I've recently been getting my mother into watching CLAMP shows.  I've shown her Cardcaptor Sakura and Magic Knight Rayearth and she's enjoyed them both a lot so far.

Magic Knight Rayearth was actually my first introduction into CLAMP alongside RG veda. (It was also the first manga I ever read that had blood in it when the characters got injured.)

For me I got into CLAMP through Cardcaptors on Kid's Wb and eventually watching the uncut Japanese version.  I then started reading the MKR manga and then watched the anime version.  Personally while I don't hate the OVAs I prefer the TV series over them.  I didn't mind all the changes they made to the characters or the different darker feeling but I felt like the OVAs didn't spend as much time developing the characters or the relationships as they only had three 40 min long episodes to tell their story and it felt more rushed to me compared to the TV show which had more time to flesh out its story.

I'm reading the manga right now. (I'm on the second arc.) It's pretty good. I don't think it's gonna be my favorite manga, but it's a very interesting blend of typical shojo/magical girl and shounen/mecha. Also, Umi's rather one-sided arguments with Mokona are hilarious.

That would be so awesome!! I've been wanting to own it for a while now. Its one of the magical girl series that my fiance said he could kinda stand to watch and i need to show him the entire series (cause that ending T_T).

@silverskywind the manga is pretty good from what i remember. Its been a long time since I read it but I remember enjoying the second part very much. I never did watch the OVAs or the 2nd season though so i can't compare them to the manga...guess i should get on that at some point lol.

The Manga is amazing. The anime was too drawn out for my taste but I love it as well. Clamp really has gorgeous artwork. I've actually got every season and all the manga. The OVA was different, but the art style looked more like clamps artwork. Gah, now I want to re read it..

I'd read the manga first if you want to get your feet wet. The anime goes off on unnecessary fillers often, considering the manga is only 6 books and the anime is around 46-50 episodes.
