This page as an interesting summary of this matter here. But i don't know how to do about it. (Possible (c)problems?)--Requiem the 18th(email)
Read it, understand it. If you can find another page to confirm the information, good. Don't copy/paste, just include the most important information. -- ReyBrujo 03:38, 30 December 2005 (UTC)
Got it, give me some time to do so... --Requiem the 18th(email) 01:36, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Can anyone give a source for the Magic Knights and Mokona each representing a CLAMP member? Personally, I've never heard that before. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

Why delete the images?[edit]

Please, don't delete the images from the article. They illustrate it, and there is no really need to delete them. Also, the names are generic, except for Anne/Anais. I wrote the difference in the article. -- ReyBrujo 04:51, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

The names are not generic, they are based on names of cars. I've read an article about that somewhere, can someone back me up on this. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

Spanish Version[edit]

Why are there references to the Spanish Version of this series in the English Language article? Don't these belong in the instead? If there are no objections, I'd like to remove them from the article. Echocharlie 21:22, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Considering there is indeed a Spanish version of the article, I would agree with removing them. W Solleni 23:58, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

There is also mistakes: the spanish names of the magic knights are "Lucy", "Anais" and "Marina", without any last/family name. Bass-Kuroi (talk) 20:35, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Well, if there are mistakes, then be bold and fix them. :) Kaguya-chan (talk) 22:04, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Extra categories[edit]

According to this, an article should not be member of a subcategory and a category. In this case, it should not be a member of Category:CLAMP since it is already a member of Category:Magic Knight Rayearth, which is a member of CLAMP. I believe only the Category:Magic Knight Rayearth should stay. Opinions? -- ReyBrujo 18:50, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

You are correct. Articles should not belong to both a parent and a child category. --日本穣 20:14, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

I agree too. MKR is a category in its own right. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:01, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Edits by[edit]

I removed this text because it inappropriately uses the first person, contrary to the formal tone expected of an encyclopedia entry. Some of this info could be added if it is cleaned up a bit. -- Buuneko 10:03, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Additional Info[edit]

Hello. I would like to add some provided information so that I could help you on expound further about Magic Knight Rayearth. It's about thye plot spoiler information for the 2nd arc of the series, which I noticed some of the information were a bit misinterpreted, just like the twins of Zazetha protrayed not as villains but as one of the three planetary conquerers.

Anyway hope I would be allowed to provide significant information about the second arc, in a way that this will be enlightened to the readers. Thanks. Akarion 23:27, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

mergefrom Pillar System proposed.[edit]

Pillar System is an orphan article which I believe should be integrated into this main article. Derek Balsam(talk) 16:35, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Definitely. The Pillar System plays a huge part in Magic Knight Rayearth. It would be wierd if they didn't. --OrangeFoxFetish 03:55, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

I agree also. It's not that big, so it's less likely to clutter the article. Jezebel Parks 05:11, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

I also agree. Argel1200 01:17, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

I also agree, its the same manga, and its the same topic but just a different bit of info. BUT!!! why did they use a different page and why flag it was being merge, it the same thing??? Black-Rose-Anime 05:12, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

If the Pillar System is unique to the Rayearth stories, then it should be merged with this article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:10, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Is the summary deliberately misleading?[edit]

In the manga, Hikaru becomes the Pillar of Cephiro in part because she herself has killed the two people who stand between her and ruling Cephiro. One is Lord Zagato, and she kills him believing he is evil (Guru Clef having misled her), and the second is Princess Emeraude herself, after Emeraude has transformed into an avenging centaur armed with Zagato's sword. With them dead, the way is open for Hikaru to succeed in the Test put to her by Mokona and therefore become Pillar -- which is what happens. In the anime, Hikaru does not become the Pillar. Instead, she is haunted by her own bad conscience, embodied in her double Nova, and she relinquishes Cephiro at the end when she, Umi, and Fuu return to Earth. The manga portrays the 14-15 year-old Hikaru as a powerful and dangerous sentô bishôjo = "beautiful warrior woman," and the anime portrays her as an anxious, and rather conventional, young girl.

I'd like to know what was in the mind of whoever wrote the plot summary before I suggest or make any changes.

Removed Citations Needed from Theme Songs section[edit]

I removed the "citation needed" flags from the theme song section because these are facts that that can be determined from the original source (the DVDs). Argel1200 01:17, 19 October 2007 (UTC)


Why are changed names used only in the Tagalog dub of the series listed in the English Wikipedia article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Spoiler warning?[edit]

Shouldn't the 'plot' part have a spoiler warning? Or is it normal having the full plot of the series in there? Normally when I read that kind of info I want just something that tells me more or less about what is the story, not knowing it all... But I'm not really sure if I should remove it...

Grammatical Issues and Un-cited Information[edit]

There are a number of grammatical errors and un-cited (and possibly erroneous) information on this and all related articles. If no one is opposed, I'll go through and at least clean up some of the grammar. mochi (talk) 01:19, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
