Welcome to LunarNET's Magical School LUNAR! section! MSL is a remake of the "side-story" ("gaiden") Lunar: Walking School. It was released in Japan only on the Sega Saturn in 1997, as Mahou Gakuen Lunar! (魔法学園ルナ!) -- translated either as Magical School LUNAR! or Lunar: Magic School (the '!' is part of the title!). MSL went on to spawn a manga, a novel, and a few drama CDs, as well as an animated short.
Magical School LUNAR! is technically a remake, but it's practically its own independent story. MSL featured completely re-done graphics from top-to-bottom, several new characters, full animation sequences and voice, and so many storyline changes that it's effectively a different game. Like its predecessor, the story takes place approximately 300 years before the events of Lunar: The Silver Star. It follows Elie (Ellie), Rena (Lena), and Senia, three girls recruited for the Magic School of Ien, an elite magic school on an island that moves around on the ocean. Along the way they find friends, like the shy Wyn (Wing) and overconfident Blade. They find rivals, like the bratty trio of Ant, Rick, and Kule. And they find enemies, like the ominous Memphis and Barua, and the mysterious castle known as "D". Plots involving finding a professor, saving the school, fighting off the Vile Tribe, rescuing the Blue Dragon, and learning how to work together, all form a part of the story.
The biggest part of LunarNET's MSL section is our walkthrough and guide--the only complete walkthrough of its kind, including cinematic and story translations throughout the guide. But we also have other content, like character bios, screenshots, artwork, packaging, and music. Let us know what you think over in the forums!
