CLAMP's first manga series, Magic Knight Rayearth is certainly one of their best works, if not their very best. The plot is interesting and keeps the reader guessing to the very end, as always the art is captivatingly beautiful, the characters are engaging and it's overall a beautiful piece of work.

The story begins with three middle school girls -- Hikaru, Umi and Fuu -- being transported to a magical world known as Cephiro by the pillar, Princess Emeraude.

While admitedly Gravitation is a good series, it's really only mediocre compared to its manga parent. The writers took a twelve-volume manga and smashed it down into a thirteen-episode anime series.

Gankutsuou is a twist on the famous story Le Comte de Monte Cristo (the Count of Monte Cristo) by Alexandre Dumas. The twist? It takes place in the far future, where for some reason everything is futuristic yet at the same time set in the past. Many anime have taken on this aspect, but for this classic story it may have been just what it needed. Another twist which added to the interest is the fact that the story begins about halfway through the novel with a different character as the main.

Overall the story is interesting. If one has read Comte they have a few read more
