    Strangely timely revelation that the monsters of Cephira are born from the fears of the populace not that they lack a protective leader. Bonus star for the line that's just there in the air, being a line. Trippy.

    Review of vol. 1: here. ✵ The friendship between the girls is sudden but it makes sense for the portal fantasy environment, it makes sense for Hikaru's naivety, and it makes sense because the theme of this volume is about believing something into existence. I love watching them interact and support each other. ✵ The moment in the fountain when all of them are fighting something they love is brilliant for me because of how the creators used Fuu's "enemy". ✵ While I didn't love Ferio helping them out Review of vol. 1: here. ✵ The friendship between the girls is sudden but it makes sense for the portal fantasy environment, it makes sense for Hikaru's naivety, and it makes sense because the theme of this volume is about believing something into existence. I love watching them interact and support each other. ✵ The moment in the fountain when all of them are fighting something they love is brilliant for me because of how the creators used Fuu's "enemy". ✵ While I didn't love Ferio helping them out, I appreciated how the creators used him as a way to show Fuu's cleverness and Hikari's hopefulness. I also appreciated that while the girls needed his help once, immediately after that they kicked ass by themselves twice. ✵ I love the evolving armor! ✵ I love the extremely fast pacing of this story and I can't wait to read more! I'm going to devour this series today! ✵ I have some additional thoughts about how the female antagonist was weakened by her (obviously dumb) decision to give up her morals to support a man, and about how her design might have been purposeful as she's designed similarly to how female characters have been designed to please men, and yet here we see that it didn't work to her favor and that in general trying to please a man was her downfall.

    Volume 2 continues the girls' adventure without much excitement. The would-be Knights move from one spot to another, defeating enemies, getting cooler and cooler gear, but there is never any concern for their safety. I wish the plot was more complicated. Also, needs more Ferio. Overall, Magic Knight Rayearth is a very cute and entertaining story, but ultimately it lacks the depth that would make it a enduring tale.

    Three girls from Tokyo summoned to the magical land of Cephiro by its pillar (guardian) Princess Emeraude continue their quest to become magic knights. This quest is a dangerous one, for the princess can no longer pray for her land’s peace. She’s been taken by the High Priest Zagato and monsters now roam the countryside. Yet traipsing through this countryside Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu must go, in order to obtain a legendary mineral called escudo. Only when they have it can Weaponmaster Presea design Three girls from Tokyo summoned to the magical land of Cephiro by its pillar (guardian) Princess Emeraude continue their quest to become magic knights. This quest is a dangerous one, for the princess can no longer pray for her land’s peace. She’s been taken by the High Priest Zagato and monsters now roam the countryside. Yet traipsing through this countryside Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu must go, in order to obtain a legendary mineral called escudo. Only when they have it can Weaponmaster Presea design the perfect tools for them to complete their quest, awaken ‘the spirits’ and save Cephiro. To get the escudo; Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu must make it through the Forest of Silence. Escudo lies within the Fountain of Eterna. This isn’t going to be easy with all the monsters about. Plus Zagato has despatched his minions to kill the girls before they can become Magic Knights. Any number of illusions can be thrown at these would be heroes to confuse their hearts. Happily they’re not without allies of their own, including Princess Emeraude herself, who may be imprisoned, but can still reach out to them. All three girls developed a little more as individuals in this volume. More of their backstories were revealed and they stepped up as heroes. This went in smooth synchronicity with their evolving armour and weapons, which react to their hearts. The obstacles the girls faced were often emotional as well as physical. Presea’s way of creating weapons was beautiful, seductive, and gave an intriguing new level to her as a weaponmaster. The way Hikaru blushes when Presea crafts weapons was adorable. Fuu showed just how crafty she could be and developed the beginning of a cute relationship with the wandering swordsman, Ferio, along with an introspective attitude about the dangers the Magic Knights find themselves facing. Umi shows some serious mettle, in spite of reservations about being a Magic Knight and even being in Cephiro. An enemy falls, another rises, the intensity of the quest increases as the first part is accomplished, only to transition into the second part. All of this is depicted in beautiful artwork which evokes fantasy, magic, and wonder. For all of these qualities, I give this four stars.

    In this 2nd volume, the girls are on a quest to acquire weapons so that they can fight against the evil Zagato, and rescue the true ruler of Cephiro, restoring the troubled land to peace and harmony. I was glad to see that all of the girls go through a little character development in this volume, adding a little more depth to their personalities. But they still aren't exactly complex characters, and the story remains fairly simple as well. Sometimes I like that though!

    MKR is the better part of the earlier "isekai" type of manga series. Disregarding characters' age (which are either early teenagers or too-old-for-human ethereal being, nothing in between), I love that everyone seems very accepting of each other here. CLAMP's world is always that world where love wins, no matter how.... uhhhhhhh socially challenging that love is. MKR is the better part of the earlier "isekai" type of manga series.

    More intense than the first volume, but I got tired of the exposition. Yes, we know about Magic Knights and the will of the people blah blah. It made the first half drag and the second half feel rushed. But there was some really interesting foreshadowing when they were in the fountain that I never noticed before, so I enjoyed that.

    Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu progress further on their quest to become Magic Knights and save Cephiro! Just as heartwarming and fun as the first book in the trilogy. It was great to see the characters develop and learn more about themselves and the world they're exploring!

    This one was very much like the first. The girls are getting into their magic more. There are more themes of fate. There is always lots of foreshadowing. The bad guy manifests himself as a REAL bad dude - because he kills his own. There are some ideas of opening your mind to think of the possiblities - and there is a section about conquering your own fears - conquering yourself in order to be stronger and "evolve".

There are some ideas of opening your mind to think of the possiblities - and there is a section about conquering your own fears - conquering yourself in order to be stronger and "evolve". There is more sacrifice involved in this book - the girls are becoming more reliant on each other. The series continues, but I don't own those books. These books read very quickly despite being about 200 pages each. It is a little mindless. But it is definitely fun. I give it a 4 because I can't really compare it to other books, but I did like it - for what it was, it was good, but it wasn't that great. good zone out kind of a book.

    Magic Knight Rayearth reuses an old plot line: on a field trip, three girls from different schools are transported to a magical world called Cephiro. It's their job to learn magic and train to defeat the evil enemy Zagato who has kidnapped Princess Emeraude. Story-wise, there's nothing unique about it. The girls are rather underdeveloped at this point in time, as are most of the other characters, like Ferio. Though the first volume digressed often into chibi jokes, this one felt more serious in Magic Knight Rayearth reuses an old plot line: on a field trip, three girls from different schools are transported to a magical world called Cephiro.

Though the first volume digressed often into chibi jokes, this one felt more serious in tone, a shift that made this volume stronger than the last. I read the first volume of this series as a kid and recently came across it at my library. The artwork is gorgeous and still appeal to me, even if the story line is underdeveloped and things get solved a little too easily.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. A great continuation to the first volume. The character interactions are still great with the addition of new characters. We learn more about the world and the magic system in this volume. That way that magic is based off belief is intriguing. The artwork is still Beautiful

    This was one of the earlier manga series I read. I like the characters and the concept of the story. The artwork is beautiful, but drives me crazy sometimes - it's way too busy to be done in black & white. You can hardly tell what's going on sometimes.

    I saw the anime forever ago but I didn't ever get to see the end. It was also in japanese and I was knitting at the time so I don't think I was paying much attention. Anyway, I like the series because it is: a) made by CLAMP b) classic manga c) Mokona isthe most awesome thing EVER! Puu! I saw the anime forever ago but I didn't ever get to see the end.

    This novel moves quickly and is very plot-driven towards the end. I really enjoyed meeting Ferio and the fact that a little side-romance was included in the plot. There wasn't quite as much adventuring in this novel as the first, but it was still enjoyable. This novel moves quickly and is very plot-driven towards the end.

    It's a good sequel to the first book in the trilogy, but the ending was very disappointing. The cut off right before a battle, no matter how big, was slightly annoying.
