Synopsis

Juna was just an ordinary high-school girl, right up until the day she died in a motorcycle accident. But there, in the twilight of death, she saw the future of the barren earth destroyed by the Raaja, and was offered a second chance at life if she would stop them. Now she must learn to cast aside her thoughtlessly destructive ways and face her destiny as the Avatar of Time, the one being who can decide the fate of the planet.

Message films or those with controversial or social commentary often don’t seem to fair well with the general public. That is honestly the only reason I can see for this series having such a small base of viewers. Arjuna from an art and production standpoint is really one of the better shows I have seen and one that I think everyone should check out. It attempts to deal with some very important issues facing our planet from ecology issues to the over medication of society. For the most part it does a really good job at this, even though at times read more

Earth Maiden Arjuna...it could be described as either you love it or you hate it. It's hard to say considering I'm one of those who loved it. I'll assume you have read the synopsis and at least have a basic idea of what this anime is about. Very good, on with the review!

Story: The story of Arjuna had a lot of promise, I'll tell you that. With the first and second episodes I was mildly in shock at the premise set out before me. It could have been a true masterpiece, but when you think about it, this is a tricky story to dive into. read more

The first impression that I got from this anime is that this anime is going to deal with a lot of environmental issues that still plague the world today but it’s going to have some sort of action in it. The art actually reminded me of something from “Tenchi Muyo!” but it’s a bit more messy than it. Plus, you can tell that the CGI didn’t age very well but it’s not detrimental of the story. It felt very much like it’s imcompleted, somehow but the landscapes are from from that. The landscapes are breathtaking and gorgeous and really pops out from the actual characters.

Earth Maiden Arjuna

After an accident where she is pronounced dead, a young teenage girl is brought back to life and chosen to be the Avatar of Time. With no idea what is going on she is thrust into situations she doesn't seem to understand.

My Thoughts:
This anime is not your typical anime. There is some action but most of the anime deals with a young teenage girl's feelings and growing awareness towards the environment. In a way it also teaches the viewer about the environment and what's being done to the planet as well as gives hints on what we can do read more

Recommendations

A strong and positive depiction of nature and it's role in society. In both series the main characters fight a mysterious evil that more or less conveys similarities with corruption and taint.
Basically they seem to be a huge wake-up call for environmental pollution, although their approach is different.

Both animes tell the story of strong girls trying to understand their own purpose in the related nature - living beings. *Earth's day approved*
Both Arjuna and Pom Poko have strong morales about the enviroment . Arjuna is more about farming and plants and what's safe to eat (the answer to that last one being nothing by the way) while Pom Poko is about how we shouldn't build on homeland of animals. Arjuna is also way more preachy while Pom Poko's morale is part of the story naturally and thus seems better. Arjuna also has more action, but they both have great animation and music.
Both of these anime share the same music author, Yoko Kanno (in Earth Maiden Arjuna she uses the Alias of Gabriela Robin) and their openings are song by the beautiful voice of Maaya Sakamoto (she also is the leading role in Vision of Escaflowne), both animes also have a God or powerful spirit in the form of a mecha (Ashra and Escaflowne respectively) and their characters go into a coming to age style of development.
Saving the world from destruction.
Main character just a normal girl except, has the power needed to save the world.
