Hikaru Shidou, Umi Ryuuzaki, and Fuu Hououji aren't from Cephiro. While on a school field trip to the Tokyo Tower, the three girls' minds are on anything but different worlds filled with magic and wonder. That is, until Princess Emeraude, the Pillar of Cephiro, cries out for the Magic Knights to save her world--and that just happens to be those three! Though (largely) against their will, the girls must learn to control the magic they suddenly possess, drive back the monsters that plague the land, revive the Rune Gods that have been sealed away, and then fight against the High Priest Zagato, who has kidnapped Princess Emeraude. It's the only way they can return home, for willpower influences Cephiro, and it is the Princess's will that the three girls become the Magic Knights of legend, and save her planet! Mecha, magic, and mystery abound in Magic Knight Rayearth! See what becomes of Cephiro in this Blu Ray boxed set, containing both seasons of the classic CLAMP anime! English dubbed and Japanese with English subtitles.

On a side note this show has a very legend of zelda like feel to it, which i also like.
I was expecting the dub to be pretty bad, but was pleasantly surprised by how competent it was. The main cast does an excellent job in my opinion, with voice acting veterans Wendee Lee as Umi/Princess Emeraude and Lex Lang as Zagato/Lantis highlighting.
The animation quality of season 1 definitely has some rough spots, but clearly improves as we progress through season 2.
The casing, artwork, and overall production value of this set is beautiful. The footage retains it's original film grain with minor jitters but watching in HD is a pleasure. You can really tell that Discotech put love into this release. The best aspect in my opinion are the abundant special features on disc 6. Cast interviews, alternate dubs, Japanese commercials, and all of the opening and ending variations, including my favorite gem, the English song covers by Sandy Fox.
Whether you are an old fan of this series or wanted to explore it for the first time like me, this set is worth it.
