Thank you very much for your letter.
I am sorry but I would like to inform you of my terminal's crashing. My termial had been crashed since 03/03/1999. A standby set was given on 03/19/99. Thereafter A new machine was given on 03/26/99. I still set it up. While its crashing, an agent for my university, Sun Microsystems Japan Co. set up a strong firewall on our mail servers.
Therefore since then I cannot send my private mails. Moreover I cannot find messages to me frequently. Of course my collegues blame the firewall. However some crackers have invaded our mail servers via foreign telephone exchange company's servers. I cannot use telnet software.
I've just received your letter. I read it and thought...
As you know, "Pretty Samy" is a kind of "Another World" story. AIC is one of the most famous anime production in Japan. Recently Sony promotes it. AIC (Anime International Company) works as a subsidiary of Pioneer Co. AIC has made "No Need For Tenchi (Tenchi Muyo!)" series, "Battle Athletess DAIUNDOUKAI" "Vampire Miyu" "Bubble Gum Crisis" etc. "No Need For Tenchi" was first produced as an OVA. Therefore TV-anime series started. In those series, a supporting part "Sasami Jurai" got more and more popular. As you know, Ms Chisa Yokoyama plays the role of Sasami for many years. As you know, she is beautiful and speaks English (and Japanese). She likes to masker as Sasami (costume-play of Sasami). Then staff of "No Need For Tenchi" began to produce a story of Sasami's another world.
In "Another World" Sasami plays the role of the heroine "Sasami Kawai". She is a normal girl. But in order to defeat the evil, she changes herself into "Magical Girl Pretty Samy". She has to defeat her rival "Pixy Misa". At first it was made as an OVA.
Thereafter when TV-series were produced, the story had to include a lot of supporting parts.
I think you fully understand the concept of "Magical Girl Pretty Samy".
In Japan, it is said that the anime is made for little children but includes heavy themes.
Some webmasters regard the story as Misao's fight against solitude.
- Father must protect his daughters.
- In Japan, in order to pass the entrance examination for a junior high school, pupils must study hard. When the pupil achieves the aim, parents should have a good word for the pupil.
- Busy mother must not ignore her daughters.
- It is difficult to keep friendship but children must try to understand the structure of the friendship.
- Solitude derpresses girls' soul. The depressed soul seeks for freedom from dark inside.
Several webmasters admired the 19th and 20th episodes of TV-anime type Pretty Samy.
By the way, in the first episode, Tsunami was selected as Queen of Juraihelm. Tsunami is not so wise but regards the solution of environment pollution as important. But Tsunami's rival and intimate friend, Ramia studied politics, economy and policy to be an excellent sovereign. Perhaps magic and priests control the kingdom, Juraihelm. Therefore Queen may be a symbol and must not control the kingdom for herself.
As you know, the earth and the Juraihelm are the twin planets. The balance between the good and the evil in the earth reflects the condition of the Juraihelm which consists of magic and priests. Therefore the new queen Tsunami let Sasami improve the balance without executing Tsunami's own magic power.
Ramia wanted to be Queen because Tsunami is not so wise and Ramia studied hard. Ramia interfered Tsunami's project utilizing Pixy Misa.
But Ramia looked for a medium interfering Tsunami's project. Juraihelm people have their proper partners in the earth because the earth and the Juraihelm are twin planets. In the first episode, Tsunami met her own partner, Ms Misao Amano. Misao is also a clever and wise girl who studies very hard. In order to pass entrance examination, she has to study hard. Her father is a famous classical musician living abroad. He scarcely comes home. Therefore Misao's mother has to earn money for herself. Thereafter she works as an executive. She is very busy. She was disappointed at her husband. She did not take care of her only daughter Misao. Misao was sole. She often sobbed alone.
Ramia understood Misao's solitude and depressed soul. Ramia gave Misao a joyful life by releasing her true heart. Pixy Misa seemed to be a character different from Misao. It is not true. Pixy Misa was the hidden character of Misao Amano. It was explained at 20th episode of TV-anime.
Her younger brother Rumia worked only as a watcher. When Pixy Misa failed to defeat Pretty Samy by utilizing Love-Love Monsters, Ramia and Rumia did not punish Misao. (Perhaps when Ramia hurts Misao, some power will hurt Ramia.)
In the 16th episode, Ramia produced Wives' Troops (Hitozuma-tai). They were wives. They were not Love Love Monsters. It is said Ramia knew that Pixy Misa approached Misao. Ramia began to give up Misao. Then Wives' Troops were defeated by Pretty Samy.
Thereafter Rumia began to love Misao. The surface of Misao heart still liked Sasami. When Sasami knew the true character of Pixy Misa at 19th episode, at first Sasami could not understand the core of the affair. Sasami went into the inside of Misao's heart. Misao felt sick under Ramia's bad magic. Rumia saw her feel sick. He repented of turning her into Pixy Misa. However the phenomenon included two issues. One was Ramia's bad magic. The other was that Pixy Misa was also another side of Ms Misao Amano. The inside of Misao's heart was dirty and dark. At last Sasami found loving Pixy Misa was the core of their friendship!!! Then Bad magic was vanished. (I also cried out! Today I saw the video, and I cried out again.) Of course Rumia was delighted.
As you know, the project was Ramia's final one. He could not meet Misao any more. (Thereafter Misao was so wise that she knew the structure of magic and that she could change herself into "Pixy Misa with Good Will" for herself!!! Human-type Rumia could meet Misao at last...)
Then Tsunami came to the throne. Ramia was much disappointed. Ramia became all white. Thereafter Romio attacked Juraihelm and the earth. Ramia fought for Tsunami against Romio. Pixy Misa and Pretty Samy with the help of Ramia and Rumia saved Juraihelm and the earth.
Of course Ramia and Rumia were not punished.
Thank you very much for your cooperation and time.
