From Far Away (Japanese name Kanata Kara) is a Shōjo (Demographic) series about an Ordinary High-School Student named Noriko, who is whisked into a magical world filled with dragons, deerlike horses and a world populace in fear of a being called the Awakening. The Awakening is foretold to awaken a destructive being known as the Sky Demon. All of the nations of this world are racing to find the Awakening and to use its powers to control the Sky Demon.Noriko, shortly after falling into this world, is quickly found by a man named Izark, who, initially against his wishes, takes up arms to protect the young girl. The story takes off from there, focusing on Noriko's troubles of learning about this dangerous world, its language and why her unwilling protector really doesn't like being around people.
From Far Away contains examples of:
Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Whilst Noriko is kidnapped by the Mooks of Lord Silent Mask, she takes a looksie into Izark's mind when he's trying to rescue her (sic) "What is this feeling? Such a swirl of emotions! Sorrow... Anxiety... Anger... Hatred... Irritation.."
Bad Ass: Tons, but Izark and Gaya stick out the most.
Barrier Warrior: With a few moonstones, Noriko graduates into this in the final battle.
Chastity Couple: The farthest Noriko and Izark have gone (onscreen at least) is kissing, of which the number of times you can count on one hand, and despite the various amounts of alone time they have had.
Overly Long Gag: The whole Noriko-is-a-princess ruse exasperates said fake princess.
Plucky Girl: Noriko doesn't space displacement into a strange world get her down.
Power of Love: Any time Izark turns into the Sky Demon Noriko is always able to change him back through this method. Also earlier, when the two gain a telepathic connection with each other. Heck, the series runs on a combination of this and the Power of Friendship.
The Rival: Keimos Lee Goda. His quest to defeat Izark basically drives him mad.
Those Two Guys: Duke Jeida's sons, Rontarna and Koriki, whose names we don't really get to find out until Volume 12.
"Where Are They Now?" Epilogue: Every nation that Noriko and Izark have stopped by in gets to tie up loose ends with the help of the same band of protagonists. The lesser antagonists who have survived up to this point get what's coming to them, too. Even the family and friends that Noriko leaves behind in the real world get their own montage.
