Soon after Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu return to Tokyo, the three of them meet at Tokyo Tower to talk. Hikaru says that she wishes they could return to Cephiro and do something good for the land that Princess Emeraude protected so dearly. Umi and Fuu agree. Suddenly, a light appears in the sky and they are transported to Cephiro. Clef explains to them that with no Pillar to keep Cephiro peaceful, it has fallen into chaos. Monsters are multiplying and the land is becoming desolate. All the remaining inhabitants of Cephiro have moved into a magical castle. Clef also tells the girls some alarming news; three other countries, Chizeta, Fahren, and Autozam are trying to invade Cephiro and take over the Pillar system for their own purposes. The girls must stop the invaders as well as the mysterious and evil Lady Debonair, who believes she is the rightful Pillar, all the while desperately hoping and searching for a new Pillar to make Cephiro into the beautiful land it once was.

I personally felt this didn't live up to the first season. I really felt the impact of the ending of the first series. Sure it left things open, but it still felt conclusive at the same time. I thought the ending was really touching and you really feel how the three magic knights bonded with one another and you really see that. To me, making a sequel just takes away the impact the ending had on me. Personally, I thought if they were going to do a sequel, they could have just made them stay in Cefiro instead to try solve the remaining problems it read more

Magic Knight Rayearth 2 is the telling of the second arc of the manga. While it differs from the manga, it is still a good story. The tone of the series becomes much darker in this season, and it deals much with the past of the pillar. We see the sorrowful role the pillar really is.
This is emphasized by the three nations invading the crumbing Cephiro, each who have their own reasons for invading, but eventually, two of the three decide the better, and actually help to save Cephiro during the final battle.
Besides the invading nations, there is the mysterious Nova and her read more

Season 2 is the second season-installment of the Magic Knight Rayearth anime series, with its original work (as well as Nova and Debonair's character designs) being by CLAMP.

Ok, so to give a briefer on this seasons story. The Magic Knight's get summoned back to Cephiro, except they don't know exactly who did this due to Cephiro no longer having a Pillar over its lands. It turns out that three outside nations, Autozam, Chizeta, and Faren are trying to take over Cephiro to have complete control over it, with the addition of a creation of darkness by the name of Debonair that is essentially a manifestation read more

To say this is Rayearth’s second season would be a bit misleading. Technically it started the week right after the “First Season” ended, and really the numbering doesn’t reset, so it’s less so a second Season as it is the last 29 episodes of a 49 Episode Anime that for some reason was given a different name than the first one (Though to be fair, the Manga also had the split numbering, so I guess that has something to do with it). Anyhow, did the show improve since the last Season? Let’s find out:


If there’s one thing I like is how the show starts off read more
