Fushigi Yuugi is such a good story to read. its almost exactly like the anime, except small parts are cut out. it's full of romance and depression. everything revolving around love or something close to it. there were many conflicts and the story was really long, so that may be why people gave up. they probably couldn't handle reading on to see the same things happening over and over again. there was alot of explanations that didn't seem important if u already knew the story. and there were multiple love triangles. oh, and the enemy in the first part of the story is really annoying. she has a wavering heart and u cant tell if she's being unreasonable or just stupid.

I'd have to agree with whoever said it was a complete soap opera... I dunno, the whole thing with Tamahome and Miaka is just unrealistic. Of course, the whole situation is too, but if you're going to make an unrealistic situation in a manga, at least have the characters act slightly more realistic for a little balance. The only thing that doesn't allow me to give it less than a 6 is the silly side characters and character death... hehe... bigrazz

well, i guess you all should probably know how this manga fares considering its famous. however, all i can say is this: the jokes translated by viz was a heck of a better job than the ones scanlated by fans. i'm sorry for saying it, and i really don't mean any offense, but thats the whole truth...

I enjoyed the first couple volumes until the story became a melodramatic soap opera. Miaka is probably one of the worst heroines I've encountered in a manga. I have no admiration or sympathy towards her seeing as she's wimpy, obnoxious, pathetic and completely dependent on others. I can't see how the male characters can develop feelings for her when she's such a weak, spineless cry baby. The love triangles are predictable, and the countless rape attempts are enough to make you gag. If you want to read a good shoujo, go check out "Lovely Complex" or "Emma." Don't waste your time with this nonsense.

why is it that I hate all the works by her even when I just started reading, so at the very beginning? Well, I haven't read much of her works (3 or so) but I didn't like any of them.

What I absolutly disliked about Fushigi Yuugi: Stupid main heroine that always thinks about food, only one big love, very predictable, very very stupid heroine(o wait, haven't I written that already?) and... the art. It was just so-so for me.
Just for your Information: I've read several volumes of this manga. And I'll probably NEVER finish it. I'll also never finish the other mangas by Watase Yuu I've began!

By the way, I just love Kraust's comment. It's wonderful! I had to laugh so hard.... and I always had to thought: Wow, I think pretty much the same! Even if I just gave it one chance.

This was one of the first shoujo mangas I ever read- I was reading the viz books. I stopped around book 6 due to life rather than a lack of interest. I really did love the story at that point.
Recently, I decided to finish the story after not reading it for several years. I found it funny, but very soap opera and predictable. Not really worth 18 books of it.
If the story ended after book 13, I would've maybe given it a 5 or 6. The last 5 books seem more like the mangaka's attempt to extend the story due to its popularity rather than an actual planned ending to the story.

[edit by mod,possible spoiler]

In my belief, this was a beautiful shoujo manga.

Miaka Yuuki wasn't a very admirable herione, such as the prequeled Prietess Takiko Okuda, and many things were in fact predictable. But Miaka, though naive and dependant on others, had the capability to love unconditionally, which surprised me. I would have preffered her with Tasuki over that swine of a boy Tamahome, but all in all, it was a good story. It was not so much the romance that had captivated me, but the legend of The Universe of the Four Gods had. I even started studying the actual legend myself.

Read it for two reasons: you're either a sappy romantic, or compelled by beautiful Chinese legends. smile
