Trivia

Fox Kids started with the second episode ("The Girl from the Mystic Moon"), as the first one had been deemed too violent for the age group they were aiming for. Instead the first episode ("Fateful Confession") was spliced with other episodes to create the new opening sequence with the new theme song. See more »

Quotes

The Mole Man: I'm just a poor thief, really. I made the mistake a while back and ended up getting stuck under the castle. Not too smart, I must admit.

Anime at its finest!
1 October 1999 | by JeffG.See all my reviews

Wow! I'm amazed at how incredible this series is! It's one of those rare anime titles where all the elements come together: great story, great characters, great music (courtesy of the incredibly talented Yoko Kano) and some of the most beautiful animation I've ever seen. Anyone who's even remotely interested in anime has to watch this series. It's the best example of anime I've seen since "Macross Plus."
