It is every fanfiction writer's dream to have his or her story made into anime. We all dream about how our stories would look on celluloid. It's normal. It's healthy. And in defense of fanfiction, I have read some stuff good enough to actually make the cut. Hell, I've read some stuff better than the original canon. It's few-and-far between, but it's still there.

This is not an example of the latter.

"Eikoden" was originally somebody's fanfiction that became an officially-published novel, and then somebody else decided that making this catasterfuck into an OVA would be a good idea. I'll openly admit that the original "Fushigi Yuugi" read more

If you want to see what a OVA looks like, look for the following:

1) An unlikeable heroine
2) An unoriginal story
3) Was originally a fanfiction

Trust me, there are good fanfictions out there that would be good enough to be a pretty decent spin off of some kind. However, FY Eikoden is a terrible fanfiction.

Mayo Sakaki is very unlikeable. Now girls would be able to relate to her more if she wasn't so god damned psycho while having this crush on Tamahome. Yui was more believable, but Mayo is downright psycho. Threatening to commit suicide because some boy doesn't like you? Geeze, and I thought Yui read more

I have been a fan of Fushigi Yuugi for a decade now (mostly fandoming Genbu Kaiden) and although I've seen this load of crap before, a recent reviewing inspired me to write a review. The reason I sat through this horror again in my life is because I had made piratemirage watch this OVA for the enjoyment and LULZ. Anyway, onward to the review.

Story 1/10
Terrible. The emphasis of the whole "return" is focused on a new character, Mayo, who is pretty much the summation of every entitled, sob story, hateful, whiny, clingy, vengeful and annoying fangirl who has ever watched the series and lusted after read more

Having read Fushigi Yuugi recently, a friend of mine suggested watching this for laughs and I have to say that it was incredibly dreadful.

The character of Mayo was horrendous. She felt like a complete Mary Sue, only inserted because they wanted to make more money off the franchise. She was whiny and not appealing at all with how much hatred she had. The other characters weren't incredibly bad, seeing as Miaka was not very active in this.

The story was lacking. They made up back story to characters and completely broke canon. It did not make any sense. They should have just left it off read more
