It has a setting, it has a story too. But most of it is there so you can have this wishy washy romance. One could give Miaka credit for being brave, or they could give her credit for taking reckless actions that brews up more trouble for the characters.

It's humorous, it's cute, but whatever kind of epic story it was trying to tell was completely ruined the by the pointless separations and angst.

I realize this is a classic, but honestly.

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.

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?

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. (:

I give this manga a 5/10 due to the fact that it does have a unique concept about a girl who entered The Book of 4 Gods and become the priestess of suzaku and the seishi's are just omg HOT especially Hotohori. Well this was what I thought when I 1st pick up this manga which was ages 14 years ago...

Anyway I have to admit I never liked the heroine or the love triangles in this manga. It's annoying that I remember throwing the book on the wall after reading it and saying that it's BS. But I've finish reading it anyway. It didnt take me long to finish it cos I keep skipping the pages...those dragging parts....those lame drama...

Lastly...honestly is there a need for the stories in Vol. 14-18? I think it could have been done in 7 chapters or in just one volume instead.

But if you guys love fantasy genres manga and at the same time doesn't mind the lame smutty moments and Miaka ...well give it a try.
