Let's face it. In the mid '90's to the mid to late 2000's, anime was once a sacred medium, with masterpieces like Sailor Moon and the early Pokemon making us glued to the tube. However, today's anime have become oversaturated with sex, violence, and sick humor which does nothing to further the story. Magic Knight Rayearth, on the other hand, does not follow those trends. It keeps things simple and clean and the animation, although ancient, can still hold its own against even more modern stuff. It also stars in three typical Japanese school girls as the heroines. That's right, normal girls. No genetic modifications, no backbreaking bosoms, no hereditary ablities, nothing of the sort. That's what makes it all the more interesting. And the girls follow stereotypes divergent of each other; Hikaru's the hyper tomboy, Umi's the pampered rich girl, and Fuu's the antisocial brainiac. This definitely makes it all the more interesting to watch as the girls undergo lifechanging journeys to find the princess of Cephiro.
Let's face it. Nowadays, no matter where you look, it's getting tougher to find animes of this pedigree. Start saving for this rare gem today.
