In My Heart is a multimedia fansite for Magic Knight Rayearth, created in 1998 to offer MP3 files (and later FLAC files) of the music from this magical girl, giant mecha, swords & sorcery fantasy world manga and anime by CLAMP. Lyrics and scans of the manga artbooks are also provided. This site was created shortly after I created Sailormusic.net and Manga Style! as Sailor Moon and Rayearth became available in North America around the same time.

Magic Knight Rayearth was serialized in the girls’ magazine Nakayoshi (following the success of Sailor Moon) from Nov 1993 to Feb 1995, followed by a sequel (Magic Knight Rayearth 2) from Mar 1995 to Apr 1996. The manga was adapted into a 2 season TV anime series which aired from Oct 1994 to Nov 1995. An alternate retelling of the story was released as a 3-part OAV in 1997. The manga, anime and OAV have been translated into a number of languages including English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, and Tagalog.

Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu are three schoolgirls out on a field trip to Tokyo Tower…when suddenly a strange voice summons them to Cephiro, a world full of monsters and magic. They have been brought here as the last hope of the Princess Emeraude, who believes they are the Magic Knights foretold in legend who will save her realm.

MANGA RELEASE
