Action Level: 4/5
As many who have also seen the series and even the characters
themselves have pointed out, the fighting looked like it was taken right out of a video game. The magic was too (though
I personally thought it was out of another fantasy anime which shall remain nameless).
Romance Level: 2/5
Fuu was the meakest of the three, yet she was the only one to get a boyfriend.
But they did part on not-so-polite terms before the final battle. Caldina's attitude towards Ashcot seemed a little
too close for comfort. But come on, I know kids in Japan are supposed to be more mature than kids in America, and I
know that at times, girls mature faster than boys, but do 14 year olds really fall in love? I don't know, it's been

comic relief. The next comical character was Caldina, the southern belle.
Adult Level: 2/5
A (seemingly unnecessary) stereotypical naked magical girl transformation sequence in
episode 1 (which never appears again except in brief clips during the opening scene). But besides that, it showed people
bleed, bleed a lot.
Drama Level: 3/5
It got comical during dramatic moments which took away from the overall intensity from
the situation. But the ending, the ending, as heartbreaking as it was, personified drama.
Overall Level: 4/5
Magical girls, giant robots, magic, comedy, some weird pudgy rabbit with an Ultraman-like
crystal on its forehead. There's something for everyone here. Sandy Fox, in addition to her voice role and crew
roll, sings the opening beautifully. Definitely get the box set (though be careful, the disks have a tendancy to
