The mature, sophisticated adult that is me could choose between many profound, complex works to select her favourite comics family.

The awestruck girl-geek that is my inner fourteen-year-old still has a weakness for the super-teams that wear school uniforms and yell out the names of their attacks.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Magic Knights.





I had a really hard time choosing between this and the Sailor Scouts, who were my first magical girl title. Ultimately, the Magic Knights won out because they are...

A: Better drawn.
B: A bazillion times more badass. By the end? They each get their own MAGICAL GIANT ROBOT. And even pre-robot and pre-magic, they all had combat skills and training of their own that they brought with them from our world. (Kendo, archery, fencing.)

Here they are using their non-magical skills to defeat one of their first monsters together. And girl-bonding.

Oh, lawd, memories of being a high school freshman and the epic whammy that was the ending of volume 3. My mother had to come in and find out what was wrong, I was crying so hard.
