Yuna herself is a rather stereotypical anime heroine much like Sailor Moon: clumsy, clueless much of the time, slow to anger, reluctant to use her power on others, and therefore usually dependant on her friends to get her out of trouble. They provide most of the interest and humor in the series, particulary the frenetic antics of her insatiably ravenous android roomate Yuri Cube. It is poorly explained that most of them are also super heroines, and former enemies of Yuna. Yuna's best quality is her ability to befriend almost anyone, the "almost" a significent plot device in the three-part second story. Although the primary audience for the "magical girl" genre is generally the early teen years, this second story features a lot of fairly intense combat and a rather surprisingly gruesome resolution. Yuna is forced to choose between saving the life of a new android friend, or the entire Earth, a choice which causes her much anguish.Read more ›
Yuna is a series that surprisingly enough is based on a pair of console RPGs. In them Yuna is a heroine destined to save the Galaxy. She does with the help of a robot who seems to spend more time eating than anything else (Yuri), and a young woman who plays Yuna's biggest crush (Liavelt von Nuelstein who plays Polylina) Yuna herself is one of the most empty-headed, but kind hearted characters imaginable and with the exception of the enemies in the anime is loved by just about every character.
Sadly, character development is rather limited in the series. Much of what I know I found out by scouring the internet for more information back when I first discovered these episodes on VHS tapes. They were such fun to listen to that I wanted to find out if more had been made. It appears taht the 5 episodes contained on this DVD are the complete collection at this time.
I should mention that the voice acting is superb and the music is solid as long as you don't mind J-pop. A good deal of effort went into the series, the only problem was the lack of additional episodes that could have been used to develop the many characters and to explain just how Yuna became friends with so many people.
THis is a good clean series that I can recommend to anyone who doesn't insist that their anime be edgy or adult. It's silly, and definitely will appeal to children, but also fun and endearing to those willing to open their hearts.
