I am trying to recall a show from my childhood.

I've watched it sometime before 2000/2001, but it could have been from many years before that.

I really don't remember the story, but

  • It was about a school girl (which anime isn't ;) )
  • She traveled to some kind of fantasy world (I don't remember if she traveled back and forth, or if the school-time was flashbacks)
  • There was a water well that had something to do with this traveling
  • She had skills in shooting arrows
  • The title screen or the commercials screen had two dice on it - I clearly remember the dice
  • I think the title was like "foul-play" or "role-play" (again the association with dice) or something, but I am very vague on it.
  • Do you remember anything about the story? i.e. How did the girl survive/live in the fantasy world? – nhahtdh Aug 21 '14 at 15:50
  • Not really. It was more about relationships and romance than anything else. – Slav Aug 21 '14 at 16:54

    Pretty odd remembering Inuyasha anime without remembering himself. – o0'. Aug 21 '14 at 22:06
  • @Lohoris I know, I was thinking the same. Once I saw the screenshot, the memories immediately returned, including Inuyasha. But before that, I remembered only what I posted in the OP. I just remembered that there was an anime show that I watched as a kid and liked it for all the "character development/relationships", something that was not present in mainstream western cartoons at the time (like G.I.Joe) – Slav Aug 22 '14 at 13:36

This sounds like Inuyasha, based on a manga by Rumiko Takahashi. The girl in question is "Kagome Higurashi" and her male counterpart is a half-demon named Inuyasha. She also shoots arrows that are tipped with a special jewel shard. She travels back and forth from the fantasy world through a well in the back of her temple.

    I guess the "dice" are those octagonal shapes. And somehow "(Fairy) Tail" sounds like "(Foul) Play" to me. – Slav Aug 21 '14 at 17:45
  • @Slav Yeah, I wasn't sure about the dice part or the opening. The show is really long and has like 6 or 7 openings (or maybe more). I haven't seen all of it so I couldn't tell. – Jon Lin Aug 21 '14 at 17:47
