Plot

Hikaru Shidou, Umi Ryuuzaki, Fuu Hououji are on a field trip to the 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. Clef explains, "[In Cephiro], one's will has the ability to change reality for better or worse. The dark fears in people's hearts become monsters, while a well-intended wish can do miracles. One person, the Pillar, whose will is stronger than anyone else's, is responsible for maintaining through her prayers the well-being of Cephiro." Hikaru Shidou ) is a fictional character from the anime/manga series Magic Knight Rayearth created by CLAMP. She is one of the three protagonists of the series and represents the element of Fire. ... Umi Ryuuzaki with her Rune God Celes Umi Ryuuzaki is a fictional character from the anime/manga series Magic Knight Rayearth (created by CLAMP). ... Fuu Hououji (鳳凰寺 風 Hōōji Fū) is is a fictional character from the anime/manga series Magic Knight Rayearth (created by Clamp). ...


In the first story arc, the current Pillar, Princess Emeraude, has been captured by her high priest, Zagato. The three girls are charged with the task of saving the Princess by activating the three Rune-Gods (魔神 Ma-shin?). They are given a bizarre creature named Mokona to guide them on their journey. When the girls finally reach Emeraude, they learn that she had fallen in love with Zagato, hindering her ability to pray solely for Cephiro's well-being, and had summoned the Magic Knights to kill her since no one on Cephiro could harm the Pillar.


The second story arc is based on the events that occur near the end of the original series dealing with the aftermath of the first season's climax: three warring planets began their attempts to conquer Cephiro and a new Pillar had to be chosen before the whole planet was destroyed. Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu are once again summoned to Cephiro. In the manga it is later discovered that the mysterious Mokona is responsible for their being summoned back to Cephiro, and he is, in fact, the creator of both the Earth and Cephiro. In the anime they return to Cephiro because of their (especially Hikaru's) strong desire to do so.


Eventually, Hikaru is chosen to become the new Pillar. However, she rebels against the Pillar system, deciding that the fate of the planet should not be the responsibility of only one person, effectively preventing that person from ever being able to live and love freely.


Characters

Hikaru Shidou (獅堂 光 Shidō Hikaru?) is an eighth-grade girl, small for her age and often teased for her boyishness. She is headstrong, determined and loyal. She is the Magic Knight of Fire. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


Umi Ryuuzaki (龍咲 海 Ryūzaki Umi?) is the only child of a rich family. She is quick-tempered and at first uncaring, though perhaps the best-suited for the task at hand, but is also the most reluctant. She is the Magic Knight of Water.


Fuu Hououji (鳳凰寺 風 Hōji Fū?) is the voice of reason. She is also highly intelligent, though this goes more for booksmarts than streetsmarts. She often has moments where she doubts herself, but ends up coming out strong in the end. She is the Magic Knight of Wind.

OVA

A three-part OVA was released in Japan a few years after the end of the manga and the TV series. The OVA was named simply Rayearth and its story was quite different from the original. The characters are all the same, but the relationships, places and events changed radically. Here we find that Hikaru, Umi and Fuu are already friends who go to the same school and will soon be leaving for high school. Suddenly, a strange fairy (which turns out to be Mokona, the strange mascot-creature from the original manga and anime) appears in front of them. At the same time, strange monsters and wizards start to appear in the city of Tokyo. One of them is Clef, who tries to guide the three girls in order to let them become the Magic Knights, awaken their Ma-shin and fight against the evil wizards from Cephiro, who are trying to invade the human world. The OVA is licensed in the U.S. by Manga Entertainment. A human ovum An ovum (loosely, egg or egg cell) is a female sex cell or gamete. ...
