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.
i dont care
everyone have their opinion 4 this manga..i dont care..i love it still!!go3 fushigi yuugi~
I had fun reading this manga and would and will read it again. I'm a fan of sappy romance and this has it.
Cute, funny manga!
Excluding Miaka and Yui being idiots, I love it! There were times when it was really sweet and times when it was really sad that I started to cry and scream to the computer screen... (no comment). And Fushigi Yuugi is very funny! Especially Nuriko and Tasuki! <333
Actually this manga is a 10/10 for me, but I marked it down 1 because the author made the best/funniest character in that manga die... *sob* R.I.P. Nuriko...
But overall it's really good, there are times when I thought Miaka and Yui were overreacting and it was irritating but I liked the plot and the characters and this was a really great manga for me.
Soap opera warning
Another airhead schoolgirl who gets in over her head... And then 7+ hot guys come to her aid. Predictable love triangles/squares/whatnot, and characters don't seem to develop -- Miaka is always a really dumb and lovestruck airhead throughout the whole series. Not too bad, but why are both she and Tamahome so obnoxious?
for some reason i give it a 8 cause i think FYgenbuK is far better but still i love this story my favorite character is tasuki he is so HOT in a way ^^ . love the story !!!!you should read this one and the new one fushigi yugi genbu kaiden ^^.
This one wasn't good. Original was better.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I was terribly upset when they brought in the ORIGINAL characters of the better version of the 'universe of the four gods' incident that happened in the 20's. (Manga before this one) They got the guy wrong and the girl wrong. The guy did not control plants, he can change his gender and control wind. The girl didn't look anything like the original. But that was only a small part of this story. I didn't like how in the anime whenever they had a uhh...'intimite' moment they played this cheesy saxaphone or w/e hahaha But now to the STORY. I didn't like Miaka OR her friend (forget her name), both terribly stupid and annoying. I didn't like how they kept hurting the emperors feelings, I didn't like how the gay guy started turning straight as the story progressed, creating another pointless love triangle...for a short time. : P You don't even remember half of the characters, in my opinion that is usually not a good thing. This was a very immature story, I wanted to pick up miaka and throw her into a river with a rock tied to her foot. The ORIGINAL story: Fushigi Yuugi Priestess of GENBU, was AMAZING. The girl was strong and dependable and SMART, the warriors had their own personalities and stories that was interesting, not dull. and the GUY was smart, cunning, and mysterious. as well as incredibly handsome, not godly like but a more realistic as a manga can get. I really loved it so much, I hate this one. I guess if you're a big fan of sailor moon, this thing is ok, but I seriously recommend the genbu version. That one was the best.
a very good manga and anime
first of all miaka yuuki the heroine IS NOT A WEAK FEMALE LEAD. she even fought a couple of gangsters bravely to save herself. touched hotohori's(emperror) chest, provoked the guards at the palace to fight w her, went to a forest alone to not cause any harm to her guardians etc....
yes she is an airhead but when the story progresses ohh you just cant get enough of her. she got STRONG! very strong
. All of them got their characters developed especially miaka.

i read this manga a few years ago and i loved it. but then again, i love cheesy over-dramatic stories...
but upon reflection, fushigi yuugi wasn't as amazing as i first thought it to be. the art is gorgeous, you can't dispute that. but yeah, i can see how miaka can get on people's nerves. both leads are typical, nothing too special. but i think my favourite character was hotohori; really loved him (he was too good for miaka).
to summarize: read it if you like the cheesy, over-dramatic sort of cliched love story. also a word of caution: halfway through the series, the whole thing turns into something of a soap opera. but on the bright side, the art is really really stunning and there are a handful of memorable characters. (:
seems to me the main male character always get seduced by the bad guys....not all the way, but pretty much seduced....
