Shoujo mangaka Creator/ChihoSaito is best known as the creator of the manga versions of ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena''. This series, ''Kanon'' (花音 in Japanese), is her next best known work, having won the 42nd Shogakukan Manga Award for shoujo in 1997; in fact, it's part of what influenced ''Utena'' director KunihikoIkuhara to invite Saito-sensei to join [=Be-PaPas=]. It predates and foreshadows many of the themes and trends in ''Utena'', sometimes to the point where one wonders if certain ideas and scenes from ''Kanon'' were simply recycled in order to make whole segments of the famous shoujo mindscrew.
