Did You Know?


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 »

Not as good as the comic, but fun, anyway.
5 May 2002 | by (Plattsmouth, NE) – See all my reviews

This was the first anime video (subtitled) I ever bought, with the exception of the dubbed My Neighbor Totoro, though I had watched anime for about six months before that. I can't say I was too impressed with it, especially compared to the comic. A lot of it has to do with the fact that it adheres to the comic almost frame-for-frame, whereas others (like Mermaid Forest, Maris the Chojo, and even Laughing Target) all change numerous things and add things that enhance (for the most part) the story. All Fire Tripper the Anime adds is an extended "fans service" (nude scene) and a freeze frame ending showing what their life will be be like. Also, the only decent acting comes Suzuko's voice-actress, Sumi Shimamoto (who, among other things, also starred as Nausicaa in Kaze no Tani no Naushika and as Kyoko Otonashi in Maison Ikkoku)--everyone else is either annoying (Shukumaru) or dull (everybody else). All the same, Rumiko Takahashi's story is still terrific, so I give this a 7 out of 10.
