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?

Well this was interesting.

Fire Tripper. A 50 minute OVA by Rumiko Takahashi telling the story of a girl who somehow finds herself traveling through time to the Civil War era where she meets a high strung young man and she has to find out how she got there and what the story is, etc, etc. Sound familiar? Somehow this gem made it under the radar of even Inuyasha fans who pass it off as a rip-off of their favorite half-demon. Which is not only impossible, but a shame as this OVA is definitely worth the watch.

The story was set and concrete. There were read more

TL;DR: Fire Tripper is an interesting way to spend fifty minutes, but I would still recommend.


L;DR: Where do I begin? In my quest to consume as much Rumiko Takahashi media as possible, I stumbled onto Fire Tripper. The synopsis peaked my interest, and after finding a low resolution, muddled audio version of it on YouTube I thought, heck, why not.

STORY: 8/10
What makes Fire Tripper good is the story, not necessarily the other elements.
It's not that similar to Inuyasha, by the way. I'd say it reminds me more of Mao, actually. Focusing on the actual anime, I'd say that the story read more

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. Of course it is made by Rumiko Takashi the maker of Inu Yasha so it is not a far stretch to believe she borrowed elements as she has done in the past and currently does.

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 read more

Fire Tripper is another one of those Rumic World OVAs. Like the other two, it’s a 4/10.

Fire Tripper is one of those time travel movies with a little twist. I don’t want to spoil it, but frankly you’ll probably figure it out within the first five minutes. Other than that, it’s most just feudal Japan war-happenings, as in villages getting slaughtered and whatnot. There’s also that whole “hey I’ve known you for about a day but let’s get married” nonsense except it makes a bit more sense considering the time period and all. As baths need to be taken, there’s read more
