    Welcome everyone to the FC dedicated to one of the greatest shojo series of all time -
    FUSHIGI YUUGI


    This fanclub will be talking about the Fushigi Yuugi anime, manga, OVAs and the prequel manga, Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden.

    Keep in mind there will be spoilers here. I say this because I was horribly spoiled while I was watching the anime and I don't want anyone to go through that same experience.

    Bumped in the name of trying to keep this alive.

    Video I made; part of the great ending.

    Hey, a Nakago video as your second post, how could I resist. I would like to join. FY was one of the first anime series I fell in love with back in high school. I do have to admit that a good deal of the time Miaka grated on my nerves, but there was so many of the other characters who I adored that I just kept with it. Currently I'm reading the FY:GK volumes as they come out in the states. :3

    Welcome aboard! :hug

    Wow, you read my mind. =P I never much liked Miaka but everyone else was so awesome that I dealt with it.

    My favorite character was by far Nuriko.
    Hotohori x Nuriko = Best Ship Ever.

    Well unless of course you or any other new members don't like that ship. You're allowed to like whichever pairing you choose.

    I hope it gets made into an OVA when it's through.

    Welcome. ^^ Glad to have you in the FC.
    I'm planning to pimp the seires and upload all the episodes to megaupload but I'm lazy so it'll probably take a while for me to get the project going.

    Once I have though, I'll put a link for it in the opening post.

    I still need to get OVA2 that wraps up where the manga finished.

    I'm new to the forum in general, and this Fan Club doesn't seem active at all, but if I can and if this FC is still valid I'd like to join. I've been a fan of Fushigi Yuugi since I was nine.

    Of course you can join. The more the merrier as they say.

    Also welcome to the forum. ^^

    Another thing I forgot to mention is FY had some amazing music.

    It definitely does, it just made the ending of great episodes that much more dramatic.


    Spoiler: This would count as a spoiler I suppose.
    Like the episode when Miaka used Tasuki's Phantom paper to summon a fake Tamahome, and after he beat the crap out of all the enemies, he and Miaka ran at each other and just before they embraced he turned back into a paper. That's when you hear the beginning of the ending theme song Tokimeki no Doukasen and it just makes you want to watch the next episode even more.

    Yeah that ending theme was so frickin' addictive. Every time it played it just meant you HAD to keep watching and see what came next.

    I remember when Miaka's brother was dashing about with his friend to try and research the Book of the Four Gods. It started playing while he was sitting on some train or whatever and I was still like "oh man, what's gonna happen next!!"

    This song... It always reminds me of Nuriko. And that is a great thing. He was my fave character.

    I still need to watch OVA2 though. i hear it's the actual ending as in where the manga stopped.

    I watched the show because it was a great and interesting adventure. I wanted to see what would happen at jorney's end for everyone ya know.

    Plus it's impossible to resist the call of the music.

    No. Is it the same premise? I saw a bit of Angelquile or something and it was kinda odd...with space and all that.

    Genbu kaiden is about the Priestess of Genbu. Ya know the chick Miaka's brother read about in the real world?

    So yeah, same premise I guess.

    One of my favorite pairings of the series as well. I wish their relationship developed more before either of them died.

    Well the way I look at it is this.

    Hotohori fell in love with a woman who looked exactly like Nuriko.

    Thereofre he really loved Nuriko. He was just bound by his obligations as Emperor. He had to produce an heir and obviously if he was with Nuriko he could not do that.

    Another one of my fave pairings is Miaka/Yui. It actually makes more sense than Yui's little infatuation with Tamahome. She was really just jealous that he had come between her and Miaka.

    Now that the Genbu manga is over, think they'll animate it? :O

    Speaking of which, we still need Byakko for the series to be full circle. :-(

    Was it been confirmed? I'm assuming Watase is currently doing some other manga? Does she still have her own magazine? The releases were very strange because she did when she was doing the earlier parts of Genbu Kaiden.

    Yes, she confirmed it in an interview after Genbu was completed. I think she's working on Arata Kangatari iirc in the meantime to finish it up and the releases for Genbu were very sporadic since she got very sick and overworked in the mean time and it took a couple of years for her to recover.

    Well, we already know half of the Byakko cast and we know the final result of the story. It's like the Star Wars prequels all over again... :D:

    Still, I'm sure she can make a wonderful story out of it! I cried when Genbu ended. :lmao

    I feel pretty mixed on the Genbu ending. I was glad they didn't cop out and not have Takiko die. At the same time, I knew they were gonna make it a happier ending than they portrayed in the original FY. For the most part, I liked Genbu more than the original. The characters were better. The story was better paced. The art was definitely superior.

    The Genbu Kaiden is very worth reading. It gets confusing towards the last third though... @___@ I hope it gets an anime adaptation. :yay

    Are the OVAs worth watching? :hmm
