In the pre-titles prologue, just before little Suzu vanishes, Suzuko can briefly be seen in the doorway behind Shukumaru. It's the shot immediately after the burning beam begins to fall. Suzuko is only visible for a split second before a flame rises to obscure her. Part of her hair can still be seen behind Shukumaru as he reacts in shock to Suzu's disappearance. See more »

Good, some interesting parallels to Inuyasha
23 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

I had seen this and read the manga, and then years later saw some curious parallels with one of her other manga, Inuyasha. Both dealt with a modern girl transported to the distant past, and falling for someone in that past timeline. A good show, though.
