The Official Fushigi Yuugi Thread

Post by Luu Sky Sapphire on Sat May 08, 2010 1:34 pm



Yuu Watase's legendary series about a girl named Miaka and her journey into the "Universe of the Four Gods". Her life would never become the same again, especially when she meets Suzaku Seven and becomes the Priestess of Suzaku.

This is my 2nd favorite anime/manga series. Below Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon and above Noir. There's a perfect blend of comedy, drama, romance, action, everything. The characters are all memorable and play an important role. The series focuses on the love between Miaka and Tamahome, which isn't an easy one. That's what I enjoy more about Miaka and Tamahome than say Usagi and Mamoru. Their love had to go through unimaginable amounts of pain and sacrifice. Yet they still want to hold onto to each other, no matter what was going on. Sailor Moon can easily fix any situation, Miaka can't. Tamahome is a loyal and dedicated guy and I gotta respect him for that. Props dude.

My favorite character from the series is easily Nuriko:



Sure, the fans (most of them...) hated him at first. Things quickly changed as Nuriko became a lovable and funny character. His super strength ability is very impressive as well. ^_- Next to Fisheye from Sailor Moon, he's gotta be the most beautiful guy I've ever seen! XD Not that I'm into other guys (bishonen...ewww), but damn! o.o Very convincing job.

Once episode 33 rolled around, I was personally devastated. Feeling a deep sense of loss. (those who've seen the series know what I'm talking about.) If you meet anyone who says "Bah, they're just cartoon characters" slap that person. We relate to these characters and anything that happens to them affects us.

So, anyone had the privilege of watching/reading Yuu Watase's greatest epic? Perhaps you've ran into the prequel, Genbu Kaiden? ^_^ Discuss it all!

There are people who hated Nuriko?? o_O I liked him from the start. His twist with Miaka was so funny and he has a great character ^_^ So yeah, he is my favourite character, too ;P But I have another favourite, too: Soi <3 Actually I haven't a real idea why I like her so much, I just do :3

And don't know the anime, but I read the manga. I heared, that the anime isn't this good as the manga is ;P Well, Fushigi Yuugi isn't my favourite by Yuu Watase, but it was the first manga I have read by her and I still like it ;D

I tried to read Genbu Kaiden some years ago, but hadn't the stamina, no idea why. Actually I don't read mangas by Yuu Watase anymore (except the ones which stands in my rack), because I think the mangas gets worse and worse :/

Just wondered, if the story with Taka is in the anime, too??

Reviving thread again, I just have to say that this anime's ending sequence inspired me to pursue art as my only talent. Wink

:) Had I contained any percentage of artist in me, I would gladly say Yuu Watase's greatest series (along with Naoko Takeuchi's) were my inspiration~

Who was your favorite character from Fushigi Yuugi, if you remember? ;p

Of course, none other than, Hotohori-sama. xD
He's handsome, he's also pretty, he's a capable fighter, he will protect the one he loves no matter what, oh, and did I mention he's pretty? Wink

His dedication to Miaka was pretty touching.. :'(
What I remember him for though, is being the person to whom Nuriko is "infatuated with". xDD

XDD Nuriko had the total hots for him, even after disconnecting from his past (NUUUUU! SUCH BEAUTIFUL HAIR GONE TO WASTE!!!). I feel they could of been a great couple too, probably the only yaoi couple I can actually fanboy over! XD Unfortunately Hotohori's heterosexuality is just as strong as mine.

Nevertheless, he was an intense character both in battle and in love. Miaka was the girl of legend he dreamed of his entire life, someone that can see him as more than just the Emperor. He is much deeper in character than Tamahome; though I can't tear Tamahome and Miaka apart since they're perfect together.

Indeed. Tamahome and Miaka's love has transcended even the world of the book, and it proves that they were truly destined to be with each other no matter what. :)
