Corrector Yui Manga Anime Art Series

Corrector Yui is a magical girl anime series created by Kia Asamiya. The anime series was produced by Nippon Animation and Studio Pierrot. Broadcast on NHK from 1999 to 2000. It was licensed for North American release by Viz Media. This series has aired on Cartoon Network outside of the United States.

Two manga series were also released: a two volume series by Asamiya and published in Ciao from 1999 to 2000; and a nine volume two-part series by Keiko Okamoto which was published by NHK Publishing. The second manga series licensed in North America and translated into English by TOKYOPOP beginning in 2002. However, there are rumors that in 2009 Tokyopop may drop the rights to the English-language version of the manga.[citation needed] If that occurs, Viz Media may pick up the property.[citation needed]

This series follows a basic magical-girl progression, and falls into many of the magical girl tropes common in the late nineties.[citation needed] The series is innovative amongst magical girl series in that Yui's powers all derive from not just the technology she uses, but are incorporated entirely into her on-line avatar, with no real powers granted outside of the network.
