(Redirected from Saber Marionette J)

Saber Marionette is a group of anime series. The various stories that make up the landscape were originally created by Satoru Akahori. They began with a short manga story he published in the October 1994 issue of Dragon Magazine, which lead the way to 12 volumes of serialized SMJ novels which ran through June of 1999.

In January of 1995 a 12 episode audio drama series called SM Girls Saber Marionette R aired on the radio show Nowanchatte Say You. The audio drama concluded in April of 1995 and the story was continued one month later with the release of the first episode of the Saber Marionette R OVA. Episode two came out in late July of that year, and in September, the OVA's third and final episode was released.

In October 1995 the SM Girls Saber Marionette J audio drama series premiered on Nowanchatte Say You and ran through to January 1996. October 1996 then brought what is arguably the best known and most popular work of the Saber Marionette saga to TV viewers throughout Japan, the Saber Marionette J anime series. The series ran through March of 1997 with 25 episodes.

In the following October, a sequel arrived on video, the Saber Marionette J Again OVA. In June 1998, the sixth and final episodes of the OVA came out. Continuing the tradition of October releases, in October of 1998, the Saber Marionette J to X TV series was first broadcast. The series ran for 26 episodes, concluding in March 1999.

The Saber Marionette R OVA is currently licensed by Media Blasters. The Saber Marionette J TV series, the Saber Marionette J Again OVA, and the Saber Marionette J to X TV series are currently licensed by Bandai Entertainment. The English language Saber Marionette J manga is currently licensed by TOKYOPOP. The American translation is imported to Australia by Madman Entertainment.
