It just gets better
3 January 2004 | by NorbJuniorSee all my reviews

Rayearth is a wicked famous anime..and so I finally saw it. The first season is a monster-of-the-day show..that just gets tedious. But the 2nd season is ALL plot and woo...the drama of rayearth. very gripping and exciting. A must see. Recommendation: read the manga vols 1-3, then see the 2nd season anime, then finish the manga (vols 4-6). I give it 8 of 10 stars
