Me gustó, aunque me hubiera parecido de relleno si no fuera porque se extendieron un poco con la historia de Emeraude.
Aska me "dejó sorda" sólo de leer lo que grita XD. Los enemigos de esta parte, salvo Eagle, son más humorísticos que otra cosa.

Same feeling as volume 1 (Chaotic during battle scenes, but all in all pretty fun). I didn't feel like this volume went very far, though. I'm ready for our three heroine's to fall in love. I mean, we had a meet cute in volume 1, and I want that to be followed up on instead of reminding me of Emeraude every 16 seconds and explaining the plot repeatedly and the other country's motives. I know, I should be hoping for some Pillar resolution, but I would like to see some movement on the relationships ...more
Fuu, Umi, and Hikaru are haunted by their time in Cephiro. During a reunion at the Tokyo Tower, the girls are transported back to this magical land, which is in total disarray after Emeraude's death left the kingdom without a pillar. The artwork is gorgeous, the girls' regrets are believable, and the story begins to ask important questions about the pillar system and the legitimacy of it.

Unfortunately, all of this good stuff is overshadowed by the breakneck pace of the plot and the sheer number

The first 3 books in this series are certainly the best...but I feel like some of the backstory for Emeraude from this novel should have been included in the series much earlier. Other than that, this installment in the series seemed overly repetitive. The girls are friends. We get it. Lets move on.

El arte es hermoso. Los diseños de personajes, gloriosos. Y las escenas de batalla apantallan... ¡Pero nomás no puedo con Aska! Ella y Tatra (aunque ella sí me cae bien) me recuerdan a muchas de las cosas por las que me aparté un poco del anime... Pero eso no me detiene: la historia me tiene atrapada y quiero terminarla :)

Mi única pregunta es: ¡¿dónde está Ascot?! ¡Lo extraño!

Allgemein: Magic Knight Rayearth von Clamp ist eine 6teilige Reihe über 3 Mädchen, die in die Welt namens Cephiro gerufen werden, um diese zu retten. Dabei steht vor allem zu Anfang der großartige Humor im Vordergrund, doch auch tiefgründige Gedanken über das Glück von vielen gegenüber einzelnen, über Schuld, Trauer und Liebe spielen eine Rolle.
Band 5:Die Dramaturgie der Reihe nimmt wieder zu. Wir erfahren die volle Geschichte von Emeraude und Zagato, und auch von Mokona erfahren wir etwas mehr.

i was honestly quite tired of continuously rereading about emeraude's tragic fate. yes i understand that it was sad, yes i get how it was a driving motivation for half the cast of characters' actions in this book, but do i need to be reminded of it every 5th page? i think not. but without it, i probably wouldn't connect the dots for everyone's feelings about the pillar system. i think all of that space could have been used for more story development, i mean it's not like this is a long series to ...more

Simultaneous attacks by two of the invading forces threaten to overwhelm the Magic Knights, Cephiro's only remaining defense. Luckily for the girls, the enemies prioritize fighting each other, for the moment. But soon whoever comes out on top will turn their attentions back to the main prize. All three of the attackers have come to Cephiro with the goal of becoming its new Pillar, shaping the country to their own desires. We learn a bit more about each of their backgrounds, as well as the full b ...more

Just a re-read. This is my childhood.
This was one of the earlier manga series I read. I like the characters and the concept of the story. The artwork is beautiful, but drives me crazy sometimes - it's way too busy to be done in black & white. You can hardly tell what's going on sometimes.

3 reinos quieren ser el nuevo pilar de cefiro pero 2 de ellos no conocen cual es el sacrificio que tienen que hacer para poder serlo.
Se conoce más a fondo por que actuo de esa manera la princesa esmeroude.

I've decided to stop following this series. I'm just not that interested in seeing how it ends.
