Episode Summary

EDIT
Durning a field trip at Tokyo Tower, three girls from three different schools are transported to a medieval-like land named Cephiro. The girls introduces themselves as Hikaru, Umi and Fuu, who are all in the 8th grade regardless how they look. They are then greeted by a wizard named Clef.

Clef explains that their high ruler Princess Emeraude was imprisioned by one of her guards name Zagato, high above the skies of Cephiro. Clef explains that their world was never like this, that it's stable with Princess Emeraude's prayers holding everything together. He then explains that Princess Emeraude made it clear about the Legendary Magic Knights, who are destined to save their world. He then explains that they cannot leave, until they fulfill the Princess' wish. Clef asks about using magic; they agree to it; and begins teaching them.

Watching above, Zagato sends Alcyone to stop the Magic Knights. Clef sees Alcyone, and she attacks. He blocks the attack and fends off Alcyone as he sends the girls on a flying griffin creature. His last command is for them to go west to the Forest of Silence, to Presea's home.

Alcyone goes after them, while Clef thinks how they would do against Zagato. At that moment, Zagato shows up and fires a spell at Clef. Clef is turned into stone, and Zagato's spell manages to break the ground around him. Clef begins to fall off the cliff.

Alcyone takes charge towards the three. After a few cuts, Hikaru finally stands up and uses her "Fire Arrow" enough to scare Alcyone away... will the Magic Knights save Cephiro before falling under the hands of Zagat?moreless
