This classic magic girl anime begins as four girls from different schools are all on field trips to Tokyo Tower on the same day. A voice is heard beckoning the "Legendary Magic Knights" and the floor disappears from under them. They land in a fantasy world called Cephiro where they are imbued with magical powers and told of the danger that this world is in. Here in Cephiro, the good or bad feelings of the people there will become embodied in peace and harmony or nastiness and discord. Fears and hate, for instance, could materialize in the form of ravaging monsters. One person with a stronger will than everyone else keeps the order in Cephiro through meditation and prayer, but she has recently been kidnapped, putting the world itself in danger. The girls agree to help restore Cephiro, with the help of a small, furry friend named Mokona, and their adventure begins. Magic Knight Rayearth is one of the most well-known anime based on manga created by CLAMP. Each of the four girls in Magic Knight Rayearth is said to be based on one of the women in CLAMP and many other characters' names and places are thought to be references to cars.
