Juna was just an ordinary high-school girl, right up until the day she died in a motorcycle accident. But there, in the twilight of death, she saw the future of the barren earth destroyed by the Raaja, and was offered a second chance at life if she would stop them. Now she must learn to cast aside her thoughtlessly destructive ways and face her destiny as the Avatar of Time, the one being who can decide the fate of the planet

Hannah's comments:Quite an interesting story about the Earth´s environment. How people around the world are poisoning it with all kinds of things and not recycle things. But it is hard to understand what Raaja really is, if it just is a "something" that shows us how it destroys us and the environment. Or? Slowly it comes up a light that the people must be a part of the life, not just take and destroy. When the Earth and even Japan is suffering from an dangerous bacteria, she finally understands how to use her powers.

The animé brings up big questions about environment for you who watch "Earth Girl Arjuna", especially nowadays when everyone shall try to recycle. Some ideas are also shown, on how the western lifestyle could be like this as it is now and that there are still so many people who are poor and not have food for the day. Quite much details about vegetables and meat how they are generated to be our food.

I didn´t like her outfit and her hair when she was the "Earth girl",it is horrible. The Athia (a thingy/robot) which helps Arjuna sometines and belongs to S.E.E.D looks like a clumsy ugly robot from middle of 60t´s, too much and too much computeranimated. Chris is the boy who really is helping Juna and also giving her questions for her to think about and act. Tokio looks a little dumb to me, in a nice way, or what to say, frightened of what happens to Juna and the Earth.

Other than that, the animation is really good, in example some parts when mountains and sea are shown, that is really nice done. But her name" Avatar of Time", is it because of she has got a limit of time to save the Earth? Probably. The classical music in backgoruns suits good and the more "pop" music when something dramatic happens, suits as well. A nice and thoughtful animé and long enough, 13 episodes long.
