5.0 out of 5 stars Masterfully Remastered Indeed Pt2 August 3, 2010
Verified Purchase
If you're new to the series, I'd definitely read another review detailing the DVD release.
If you're interested in product details, peruse on...

The 15 anniversary edition release of Magic Knight Rayearth, Season 2 has been pushed back until 09/07/2010 by Media Blasters... later is better than never.

Anime Works got a hold of the original master film for Magic Knight Rayearth, Season 2 and they have faithfully dished out a new 6-disc DVD set, digitally remastered. Is it worth schilling out yet more money for yet another release??? Simply put : YES. The picture quality is nothing short of STUNNING. Where the old versions were dark, grainy, fuzzy with black particles floating everywhere, this release is pristine, sharp and extremely colourful. I literally was shocked.

To add yet another bonus... the missing sections from the episodes, around 4 minutes, has been gratefully restored... with the original Japanese title intro, commercial exit/intros, the preview for the next episode, and the 'guessing game' (that was previously part of the 'extras'). Very much like what Hasbro has done with the 25th anniversary release of their Transformers cartoons.

Is there a downside??? Anything negative???
Unfortunately just one, that can pretty much, for the most part, be slightly overlooked... the awful method of packaging they chose... not only do we get another thin, flimsy cardboard slipcase... the disc holders are also extremely thin cardboard digi-paks... it could have been boxed with at least jewel-cases or something a bit more sturdy.

Otherwise, it is quite worth the purchase alone for the digitally remastered DVDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Magic Returns May 15, 2010
Verified Purchase
If you finished watching the first season of Magic Knight Rayearth, you need to watch the second. Basically, it's better in every way. Instead of a single crisis (a kid-napped princess and countless minions to deal with, requiring becoming said Magic Knights), there are now several, each one complicated.

1. A new pillar needs to be found before Cephiro disappears.
2. Other nations have chose this time of weakness to invade.
3. An unknown force of destruction wants to destroy everyone

Things basically pick up right where the first season left off. Despite their intentions to rescue the princess and save the day, Hikaru, Fuu, and Umi did something that is tearing them to pieces. They killed the princess, her lover/kidnapper, and several people who supported them, all the while thinking they were performing a brave rescue until they finally learned the truth at the last minute (the princess was kidnapped to keep them from killing her). Yeah, that sort of thing can get you down when you're a 15-year-old schoolgirl. Wishing to right this perceived wrong, the three once again are transported to Cephiro, swearing to do something to help its people.

The multiple plots of the story progress at the same time, and are all ultimately resolved rather quickly towards the end of the series, but once again the character development and a spirit of adventure keeps things fresh and interesting. Many old characters return (the ultra-cool-Clef is one character I'm particularly glad is given screen-time doing something other than give vague advice from a viewscreen {he was turned to stone in the first episode of season one for crying out loud!}), and some new characters make appearances as well.

Being a avid fan of the CLAMP series universe and already haven gotten the first season remastered set I felt I had to get the second set to complete my collection. The one thing though is while the first season remastered box set did have a vastly superior video quality and looked far better than the earlier released set the second season set while looking cleaner while you watch it doesn't show to much difference in video quality. So if you've already bought the earlier second season set I say that one is just as good to keep then, but there is one difference not in video but the intro and endings and if you want to skip over the annoying dubbed singing intro and listen to the original uncut intro than I'd advise getting this set. The set show us the conclusion of the Cephiro catastrophe arc as with the demise of Princess Emeraude also called Pillar that acted as a magical barrier that protected the people is no longer there the magic knights return to try and complete their quest to save the world before the destruction of Cephiro can happen. The series while having a decent action and storyline isn't to dark like you might suspect pretty much like we've seen with a lot of series from CLAMP which is what I truly enjoy, I'm not saying there isn't any drama they just don't take it to the point of say the series Death Note an the like. If there is one complaint I would say is the dubbing while half of the voice cast did well for their roles you can't help but wince when you listen to the other half so the best bet if just to listen to the series subbed. The box set comes in two thin harden paper dvd cases that hold three dvds each and put into a thin paper case, the extras are actually decent so if you're a fan of this series or just like fantasy animes with a touch of sci-fi or just a big CLAMP series fan like myself here's a entertaining series worth a look....

I'm trying to get an answer from the company right now about this title. Will post if/when I get it. I recommend facebooking media blasters so they know there is a demand.
