Im a fan Yuu-san,
but I really hate this manga, the main girl is dump but she fights (a little bit) I dont know why almost all the guys full in love with her and/or have sex (or rape) her...In the end Mika is the only one with a good ending...btw she has a son with Tamahome XP *anger mark* I really hate her and I think Fushigi Yuugi wood be better without her (sorry for my bad spelling) -___-;;

Welcome to the airhead factory.
Miaka may be an naive stupid clumsy thick headed idiot, but you've gotta admit, she grows on you. The characters have set and unique personalities. So there's a guy in this for every girl.
The story may be unbearably dramatic to many people. But cliche is my middle name.
Its a loving and heart warming story about an idiot that falls in love. Who wouldn't wanna miss it?
I read this a long time ago but Hotohori surprisingly still remains in my top five. Try it. Read it. If you hate it then... Ditch it. Pretty simple.

The art is stunning, there's no question about that. I could go on for hours about the art. There are numerous bishies, bishies that are both good for eyecandy AND interesting characters in their own right (perhaps with the exception of Tamahome). I absolutely adore Hotohori and Tasuki, and their only fault is that they're hung up over Miaka.

That's the one biggest problem in this series. Miaka. Fushigi Yuugi would have been a great manga without her, without Tamahome screaming "Miaka!!!" and her sobbing "Tamahome!" at every turn. We got the point after the first... 10 times? Not only is Miaka supposed to be "tough" and the all-important priestess, she's supposed to somehow save the world, when all she thinks about is how much she loves Tamahome. Constantly crying, never doing anything to help, but miraculously, almost every male in the entire series either falls deeply in love with her or wants to throw her onto a bed.

As if that isn't enough, her best friend is completely misguided and has jealousy issues, and they all end up unhappy in love and unhappy in life, except for Miaka, who has the most cliche happy ending ever. Even if you enjoy romance/fantasy series, I'd still recommend avoiding this one to save yourself hours and hours of frustration. If you like the art, then stare at the pretty artbooks instead.

Damn, this is one shojo manga that really gets on my nerve. Stupid , whiny, ugly heroine, and the fact that lots of guys fall for her makes me wonder 'are they out of their freaking mind?' .I tried to finish it lots of times, thinking 'it's gonna get better, it's so famous after all', but couldn't. To me, all it is is a cheesy soap opera; with me wanting to kill off whatever-her-name-is and the main guy with every page turned so I finally gave up after my 5th try or something >.<

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.

zettaikareshi, you are so funny, but that is pretty much true.

I didn't think Miaka was too terribly bad when I watched the anime. Actually FY was my favorite for about 3 months (That's a long time for something to be on my favorite list) Then I realized..What a second. I'm better than Miaka! And that is saying a whole lot!!

You have to love the bishounens though! Amiboshi! Suboshi! *sigh* Tasuki........

I pretty much agree with everyone about Miaka, I can't even stand talking/typing about her!! I agree with zettaikareshii14 about everything!! so yeah, unless you can stand 18 volumes of pure torture from a useless girl, go ahead and read it. The prequel on the other hand is awesome! Takiko is a waaaaaaaaaaay better heroine than that Miaka!!
Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden -->thumbs up!
Fushigi Yuugi-->thumbs down!

Okay, I love this series. It has a unique (but too dramatic) plot and awesomely cute (not to mention, 'hot) characters; but the problem is the main protagonist: Miaka. She's such a dramatic slut, a glutton and a perfectly BAD dumbass. I hate it when she goes around waiting to be raped and then yells out "Tamahome!!" so innocently. Ugh. Seriously, what an airhead slash weirdo. I'd rate it a 6 if Miaka wasn't the main character. She's ugly, I wonder what the heck was going 'round Yuu Watase's brain when she created such an ugly dislikable character.

I WAS going to seriously STOP reading/watching this series because of Miaka and I find the concept a lil' bit too corny. They did all that 'cause of friend betrayal? Choose over a guy than your friends, family and your home? Pathetic. Sure, having a boyfriend is one thing, but leaving everything you have just for his sake? Ugh. And I find every situation to be kind of gross (seeing as everything has to do with RAPING Miaka) and yucky, and too dramatic. Miaka's probably the most disliked character in the Anime/Manga world, and that's that. No sane person likes her. Tamahome and the rest of her warriors must be dumbasses for liking her.

The only thing that keeps me reading this series is 'cause I love it when Miaka gets severely injured. Except when she cries and screams out "Tamahome", that's insane, stupid and whiny. Why would Yuu Watase create that "TAMAHOME!!" and those gross "I love you" lines. YUCK. She puts too much P.D.A in public. And because of that, I give this series a 4. It's not THAT bad, it's not THAT good either. Everything there is super predictable.

18 volumes just doesn't cut it. It should've been like, 3 to 5 volumes. The same thing just happens over and over again and it can get a bit boring. Plus, why'd they keep raping Miakaconfused!!!! She's UGLY, dammit!! Why?!

But I'm glad the prequel (Genbu Kaiden) is soooo much better. Takiko Okuda is the best and way, way better than Miaka. Uruki's better than Tamahome too. Miaka and Tamahome = eewww. Miaka is a major sucker, fatass (?!), slutty whore who's only good at whining and pissing everybody off.

If I were Yui, I'd order Nakago to kill her. Plus, Miaka's the only one who's got the happy ending!! She does NOT deserve it. Yuu Watase should do a re-make of the ending and make Miaka die by melting her in hot green boogers and forcing her to eat Tamahome's legs! Now THAT, i'd love to see!

Criticize this comment if you must. I'm just being honest. I love this series, I do, but why put all the Miaka-rape scenes?! I'd totally love it if it were about Seiryuu.
