Anime on DVD (Andrew Tei) - B-

Animetric (Rowena Lim Lei) - 4 stars (out of 5)
"It's a bit fast and loose with the Magic Knight Rayearth saga as I know it but that shouldn't be a roadblock for the rest of you."
DVD Talk (Don Houston) - 2 1/2 stars (out of 5)

DVD Verdict (Rob Lineberger) - 92 (out of 100)
