Review of Earth Girl Arjuna (2001)

Moving picture, 5.0 hours

An ordinary girl comes out of a traffic accident with a quest to save the Earth. However, hr apparent enemies are more complicated than they appear. Her physically handicapped mentor struggles to make her see this. Despite their best efforts, the last few episodes are cataclysmic.

A dark environmentalist magical girl show. A remarkably deep-green but partly pseudoscientific approach to environmentalism, with some interesting nuances in the complications. The fact that the disaster that does happen would have been impossible without magic destroys the message. Some bad CGI among the mixed media.
