The soundtrack will hook you in!
12 November 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I have first seen this anime at the Anime Expo 2002. They showed the first episode in a panel, and I suddenly liked it. It was the music I tell you! I quickly recognized who the composer is, seeing as some of the lyrics weren't Japanese but some made-up language. And I was right! It was Yoko Kanno! She's done brilliant music before, such as Escaflowne, Macross, Lodoss War, and Please Save My Earth. Also, I kind of figured Maaya Sakamoto had something to do with the soundtrack as well (I recognize her singing style from Card Captor Sakura). I'm a big fan of both Maaya and Yoko since before time!

Anyways, Arjuna tells the story of a girl who died and was revived because she was chosen to save the Earth. The animation is alright, but the CG can be a little weird sometimes. Wish they would've just animated the whole thing, instead of CG. And the plot is quite good. But I stand by my word. The music is the one that will really hook you in. Every time they play some song during the episodes, you get to "feel" it like it's magic.
