I'm looking for a (I believe) 90's or early 00's anime series about 3 girls who travel between the real world and a fantasy world. All the 3 girls had some kind of power and they each had their own color. Red, blue and green (like The Powerpuff Girls). I think their powers had something to do with the elements (fire, water and earth). Plot-wise I can't remember a lot. I know that it took place in Tokyo.

I pretty sure there was also a video game about it.

    Sounds a lot like Magic Knights Rayearth to me. Were there mechs in this fantasy world?

1 Answer 1


This is Magic Knight Rayearth (1994-1995) as found by Steve-O in the comments and confirmed by the OP. It is also an adaptation of a manga series of the same name by Clamp that from 1993 to 1996.

Hikaru Shidou, Umi Ryuuzaki, and Fuu Hououji are strangers brought together by fate when they meet during a seemingly normal field trip to Tokyo Tower. Accompanied by a great flash of light, they hear a mysterious woman's plea to save "Cephiro," and the junior high heroines are suddenly swept away by a giant flying fish. Afterwards, they arrive in an unknown land, where they encounter a man called Master Mage Clef.

Clef informs the girls that they were summoned by Princess Emeraude to fulfill their destinies as Magic Knights, restoring peace and balance in Cephiro. The formerly lively and peaceful land has been in disarray ever since High Priest Zagato imprisoned the princess, who acted as Cephiro's pillar of stability. The Magic Knights reluctantly accept Clef's words as truth and embark on a journey to save Cephiro from the clutches of evil.

The series poster shows the three girls with the colouring you describe:

    Nah, it's all good. I could've just made an answer in the first place, after all.
