Anime Review: Fushigi Yugi

"Fushigi Yugi" ("Curious Play" or "Mysterious Play") 52 episodes

Miyaka is transported to another world when she opens a mysterious book. She becomes a maiden in a quest for the seven guardians to bring peace to the land. It was on the very top of my all time favorite animes back in college. I was such a fan of the Tamahome-Miaka-Hotohori triangle. But Miyaka's character has also been hated for being clumsy, gluttonous and as well as setting a bad example for teenage sex and early pregnancy. "Fushigi Yugi" aired a very long time ago, so the graphics and color are very dull and rough compared to present animation. This for me is a classic anime that it could live without the OVAs. Excluding the first, the rest of the OVAS failed to recapture the magic and my interest.

spin offs:
Fushigi Yugi OVA 3 eps
Fushigi Yugi OVA 2 6 eps
Fushigi Yugi Eikoden 4 eps


  1. theres a manga thats sourt of like this its called "saver" its really good you should check it out.

  2. I'll check it out. I never watch the OVAs anyways.

  3. one of the first anime i've ever seen so this one had very special place in my heart. i was actually rooting for my poor poor nakago at the end, and i was hoping that he would resurrect himself after much teasers, but didnt really watch much of the ovas cause found them muct too confusing

    - i was also watching 'slam dunk' at that time. hmm.... that made me wonder. shouldnt 'slam dunk' considered as reverse harem also since there's only basically two main girl character and bunch of sweating basketball players. drool.... heheheh..

  4. slam dunk cant be considered a reverse harem because the girls are just supporting characters but they're lucky.


Asking "Where I can find this?" will not be published. Thanks!
