i have to say that i just LOVE THIS MANGA AND ANIME !! and the music in the anime is so beautiful *P*. and both the manga anime anime will make u cry rivers !! TT^TT ( when i think about it not sure if i really finished finished the anime … i kind of just quit when i thought it was a good end. BUT BUT you go and watch it and see. because this is a great anime and manga perhaps the anime looks a bit old but give it a try >,< !!! dont judge a book by it’s cover or a dog by its hair u know. THE STORY IS GREAT and as i said it will make u cry and say phew and gasp!!!! or it’s just me having a weakness for historical anime/manga with touch of magic and romance and with a female that wants to fight XD.

summary :

The time is 972 A.D. in Kyoto, the capital of ancient Japan. Kyoto is becoming a corrupt and run-down city; selfish samurai and onmyoji, who care only about gaining political power are everywhere. To make matters worse the city is suffering from famine and widespread disease. Unable to ignore the condition of the city any longer, the Imperial Court decides to send Minamoto no Raiko, a famous samurai well-known for his archery skills, to recover a legendary gem, the Magatama, said to hold mysterious power to save the world. However Raiko also falls ill to disease. Instead his youngest sister, Hikaru, decides secretely to make the journey in his place. Hikaru meets many people, and has many adventures while on her trip for the legendary gem. Serves as a prequel to the anime. — Tokyopop
