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...
one of the few shojo manga i'd read....
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...
[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.

Mommy, Make it Stop!!!
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.
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 ^^.
great story line and awesome artwork. love the characters. a highly recommended shoujo manga
