On a day like any other, Suzuko meets one of her neighbor's children, Shu, in a park on her way back from school and decides to walk home with him. Tragically, they never make it home. Suzuko and the young boy are caught in a giant gas explosion, though instead of dying instantly, Suzuko wakes up in the middle of a battlefield full of corpses in the Sengoku period.

A group of marauding bandits attacks Suzuko, but Shukumaru—a boy who had come to loot the corpses to feed his starving village—saves her. Though they both return to the village, Suzuko refuses to give up searching for Shu and returns to the battlefield every day with Shukumaru trailing behind. Though Shukumaru lacks anything resembling modern manners, she gradually finds herself drawn towards him. Just what fate awaits this young girl in this bloody period in Japan's history?

Which is not only impossible, but a shame as this OVA is definitely worth the watch.

The story was set and concrete. There were ...

Sometimes I have one of those days 'feeling like watching something romantic'. Well, this is what I ask at those moments:

*Science fiction.
*Historical or folkloric stuff.
*A simple love story.
* Believable characters: tough boy finds a girl that suits his tastes and thinks she'll be perfect to fulfill his necessities (in this case, a girl that reminds him of his first love), misplaced girl finds a blunt and honest, fit and simple young man (but she knows the actual and complicated truth about him, but never talks about it).

This is perfect for those who believe in a 'love that transcends time', and for those ...

Fire tripper is a interesting little OVA and while watching it i couldn't help but think it was the first draft of Inu Yasha or it borrowed heavily from it for inspiration.

The story is all within this one episode and it feels very fast paced. In the amount of time used it actually creates a fairly interesting plot with a good ending with a rather enjoyable surprise. I think they ...
