|Episode 1 1/3|
This starts off without any talking to explain the context that's going on. An older looking Clef is approaching a ruined castle which has some magic barrier going out of it, and is fighting through a bunch of enemies... Meanwhile, underneath what looks like the Escudo Spring, there's an older Emeraude and some guy (Zagato?)... and then the ghost of some guy appears and says
Emeraude. We will arrive soon. On RayEarth.
They might not be any older, it might just be a different art style making them look different. Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu are about to graduate from their school. Hikaru is waiting at a legendary tree for the other 2 to arrive so they can make their wish to remain friends forever. Then suddenly Mokona appears and there's a small earthquake... Hikaru tells the others "a fairy appeared!" Oh wait, this is actually a re-telling, not a sequel like I thought. That makes a lot more sense.
Fuu and Umi don't believe Hikaru about seeing a fairy come out of the tree... Then she sees it again later and runs after it across the street, thinking it's a sign of the tree's magic...
I knew it! The legend of the cherry tree fairy was real!Then she gets this vision of another dimension and a voice talking to her... Rayearth?
Little girl. Why do you see something that others do not? Why do you chase after it? Are you running away from a pain that breaks your heart?She sees an image of the Earth exploding, and gains a magic hand accessory.
The future depends on you.
That precious gem is granted to the person Mokona discovers, as proof of the purity of their wish. If the gem glows for all eternity, your dream will be realized.
Now she's floating in the sky above Tokyo Tower, and Clef is standing there on the tower looking at her.
Girl. Do you see the person standing on the tower?Then as she gets warped back to the street where she was chasing the fairy...
He is unable to remove himself from this world. No one in your world knows about him.And yet your future depends on the outcome of a divine test he's undergoing.
If you are true to your heart about your wish... then he is the one who ultimately will or will not grant it.
Soon you will have to face the divine test. And then... it will all be up to you.
Umi and Fuu both see Hikaru wearing this new hand accessory, and Mokona appears on Hikaru's shoulder... Hikaru realizes that person she saw standing on Tokyo Tower must still be there too.
Clef speaks for the first time.
The deities of RayEarth. That girl and her two friends... They are the chosen ones.
No! It's started already!
He senses that Alcyone has made her way into Tokyo. She immidiately starts turing people around her into ice and shattering them.
Clef, the priest. Well, this should be bothersome.
I can't believe you've devoted yourself to being responsible for the Final World. But you must understand now. Cephiro is getting closer... and you are powerless.
Clef calls some Dieties to the Earth to help the Magic Knights. Everyone in the vicinity of Tokyo Tower sees the weird magic stuff going on there. Alcyone tries to stop it, but she's too late. Clef uses up all his energy to cast a barrier around the entire planet.
Maybe this bought a little time but... the rest is up to those girls.</spoiler>
This is waaay more different from the anime's story so far. Like really the only similarity is the characters... and even then there's some differences. For one thing, Clef and Alcyone are no longer useless characters that don't do anything. Alcyone actually seems like a threat now too... and the pacing is much slower... it's been 15 minutes and the Magic Knights still haven't even learned any magic or anything.
