Nominated, but not yet accepted:


1985 Star Trap (Part of Cream Lemon)


1986 Castle in the Sky.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=481

1986 Dream Hunter REM. Hentai, horror. An edited release was also made. Rem is a supernatural being with the appearance of an adolescent girl who enters human dreams to fight the monsters that live there. Sexual violence. The liminality theme here is that REM exists between dreams and reality; however, like Vampire Princess Miyu, her role as a guardian precludes her from either.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=1779

1990 - NG Knight Lamune and 40. An RPG based anime in which fantasy characters use magic in a fantasy world. These aren't Magical Girls.

http://the.animearchive.org/lamune/1/

1990 Samurai Pizza Cats - henshin heroes, one of whom is a girl; they aren’t children in context, but their characters are child-like.

1993 Girl from Phantasia - A fairy becomes infatuated with a mortal.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=543


1994 Blue Seed.

Momiji is a girl with the power to save the world by sacrificing herself; unfortunately for her, this fact is not a secret. Since her power is not secret and is divine in origin, it can't really be considered magical. Not JW. This anime does have a strong liminality theme.

1994 Compiler - Plasma would be the candidate, but she barely appears in the anime.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=131

1994 Dirty Pair Flash - Kei and Yuri are 17, and have henshin sequences; in one episode, their opponent is the “Sweet Fairy”, a child assassin using a magical girl motif.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=261

1995 Fushigi Yuugi - Miaka and Yui are priestesses rather than mages, and victims rather than in control of events; they don’t have any actual power.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=178

1995 Megami Paradise - The Aerostar absorbs all evil, creating a paradise, until it becomes full; then the high priestess purifies the Aerostar, taking the evil into herself, becoming a powerful demon. Then the protected dolls have to fight against this demon while still under the influence of the Aerostar, which prevents hatred and aggression. Amazingly bland. The High Priestess is a woman, though, not a girl, so she doesn’t count, and there isn’t anyone else with a character.
