Luna introduced me to the classic comedic anime Inuyasha, thinking I would enjoy the comedic nature between the characters and its use of time travel. The show equally balances both the present world in Tokyo, Japan and Japan's Sengoku Period.

I found myself relating strongly to the themes of the musical.

Over the years, there has been numerous adaptations of the original novel The Phantom of the Opera, written by Gaston Leroux.
