Tomahomme appearing in Miaka's world in the end is a bit too exagerated.

When I first saw this anime 10 years ago, I cried when Tamahome appeared to Miaka at the end. I still cry today at that moment. It's so nicely done.

although watching tamohome being reborn was a bit over the top, your forgetting this is shoujo, so you'd want at least a happy and tearful end

I remember I started this back in 2004, took me 6 years to get round to the ending.
It was so much better for me back then. I wept buckets when Nuriko died, now I didn't really feel anything when I rewatched this series. The humor is still intact and beautifully executed though.

It's a good shoujo series but it doesn't stand the test of time imo.

Pretty good, but unfortunatley I already knew Tamahome someone got back into Miaka's world, so I wasn't really surprised. God, Internet, keep series ending to yourself for once!

I highly disagree. I think it was perfect, and matched the whole feeling of the show. It was a perfect ending.

Now I'm off to watch the OVAs.

Huh. I was actually hoping for a bit of an Inu. ending. Thats too bad. I actually found myself so frustrated through some of the parts. But by the end, I was attached to the Suzaku Seven and the family, brother & friend. (Not too happy with Yui though.) <Never really liked her. Ahh. So many lives were lost, I was so shocked to find the realism in the plot and how they kept on to the actual reality of their world. Not throwing in new spells or miracles to save everyone. Happy with the ending, how he came back to her and he actually REMEMBERED her. The rings were good too ;)

All in all, not the BEST in my opinion, but still worth watching! Enjoyed it! ( 8/10 )

I know what you mean - I felt nostalgic too when I watched Sailor Moon and saint Seiya. It does somehow trigger something in you when you have watched it as a kid although you look at it from a different eyes now.

i knew as soon as tamahome said that he existed somewhere in her world that it would end like this. i like it.

i was really pissed by nuriko dying tho since he was my favorite character so im giving this 8/10

Ugh! I never thought it was possible for an anime to be annoying and good at the same time. I almost dropped this show numerous times because of Yui's stupidity and gullible nature and Miaka's airheaded silliness and gluttony. However, those two issues aside, the show definitely had some serious tear-jerking moments.

If I would've been the author, Yui would not have been so easily forgiven...if at all. This whole thing was all her fault. So many people died on both sides because she was so damn jealous, vengeful, and stupid! I'd make her pay for the rest of her life and go insane from guilt. 7/10

I read the manga years ago and I loved it, but I never completed it.
Now that I watched the anime I felt such strong nostalgia, but I still didn't know what would happen. It was perfect. xD

This anime has its flaws, but it doesn't matter. It's magical and emotional anyway. :')
I was afraid that the ending would be Miaka meeting a whole new Tamahome in her world, but that he wouldn't remember the memories or even be the same person as the fictional Tamahome. I'm so happy that I was wrong. That he came to her world, the same old wonderful Tamahome with all his memories intact.. was perfect.

Still crying.

I watched Fushigi Yuugi when I was around 12 years old... I still remember the general story but the finer details are lost to me. I re-watched it recently and found that I still love it as much as I did before!

The ending wrapped up nicely enough albeit incompletely (or rather, unbelievably). I'm glad Tamahome and Miaka ended up together despite the odds but I still kept thinking "I thought it's impossible for them to be together?" since this was supposedly one wish the Four Gods could never fulfill... but it happened anyway. :p It made me think that they just said "screw it" to the fact that he's not supposed to be able to live in the real world and just made it happen to keep the romance going and the viewers happy.... this is also why I'm grateful for the OVAs. They weren't the best but I was grateful for the story since it reached a more believable conclusion as to how Tamahome and Miaka managed to end up together in the real world.

I started watching it last 2003, but wasn't able to finished it. Good thing I decided to have marathon last day when it was aired again. Great love story indeed! (with lots of breaks up tho lol)

So happy for Yui and Miaka <3

I can't believe that it has been 10 years ago since I first saw this anime back when I was living in Asia . A couple of friends introduced it to me and I'm glad they did. Up until this very day, fy is one of my favorite anime. The tears flow every single time nuriko and the others die , It's a very good story and it never disappoints me ! Even after all those year , I watch and enjoy

iirc the first and last time I watched this was around 10 years ago (or more? idk) and I never really understood much of the story since it was on TV and there were episodes that I definitely missed plus, I never really got to see the ending of this series. Re-watched it from episode 1-52 and I bawled my eyes out from crying on this last episode. ;u; It will always be one of my favorite animes.

What a ride! I feel like went through a rollcoaster of emotions. When I started watching this I never heard of it before so I was happy to consider it a fun trashy soap but man! did it get grate my nerves but I couldn't give it up. There is something very addictive and annoying about this series all at the same time.

As for the ending, I approve! The way homeboy declared his love for Miaka makes sense in this anime for him to move hell and high water to be a real person in her world.

Nakago, you son of a bitch! I hated you and loved you all at the same time. I was kind sad he died.

All in all, very entertaining for good and for bad lol.

It's almost 8 years since I finished, but the story is still residing in my mind. I was really addicted with this anime at that time. I'll check out the ovas soon.

but it was many years since i read the manga, so i don't really know ^_^'

ahah, yeah... there's a small war going on with blonde boy in the center ^_^'

"we have to give our lifeforce..." -but you're all dead..?
well, the majority of you?

eee-hahaha, sucks to be you ri-..... what's that smile about..?
woah- five soldiers, one woman, that's pretty harsh.
and speaking of harsh... goddamn. -did that happen or did they actually leave him alone _<D?

...interesting end.

oh- yeah, i suppose that explains a lot.
the fugh- kittys? look different, all of a sudden, baba?
wait- i thought you were a woman, eh? eh?

ahhh-...... hah. ...that was.. kinda sad ^_^'

oh. i almost expected it to be his weird friend there..

Watched this when I was in my elementary years. Rewatched the whole thing when I was in my third year high school. Casually rewatching some eps after that. And then rewatched the whole thing now that I'm almost about to graduate from college. I really do agree that this anime stands the test of time. It is one of the best written works out there. Only anime that I got toooo emotionally attached to the characters‒especially Nuriko. I wasn't able to check the OVAs back then, I'm off to watch them now :)

I still love the ending as ever. I cried and had goosebumps when I watched it way back. I wish I could rewatch this series after drinking Amiboshi's tea of forgetfulness though, since I already knew the ending I wasn't surprised very much and I wanted to get that feeling back T___T I wish I could watch this the same way as I did when I first watched it. I just love how unpredictable the events in this series was, I wont probably encounter any other series as good as this one. 10/10

How come miaka and yui are still alive? What kind of BS is that a character from a book who didn't die but resurrected as a real person in the real world? What the use of redeeming the irredemable evil bastard nakago? Plot and story are good but the characters are fucking annoying.

Ah such a touching ending.

And I don't think the villain got redeemed. They showed how he became a villain. Most people want to think in black and white but if the world treats you like a doormat well the cycle of hatred and violence will continue... It's why in our world we have social services and child protection agencies. So that nobody ever has to watch their mother get gang raped by soldiers.

This was my first harem anime, reverse or otherwise, and it's set a very high bar for future watching. Yui and Miaka (TAMAHOME!) are believably silly, bitchy and essentially kind 15-year olds from start to finish, and the futures of both worlds seem bright.

So of course the OVAs are going to screw things up with more love triangles, clashes between cosmic forces and generally wild stuff. Can't wait!

sooo over all I LOVED this anime. There were parts that seemed a bit shaky like how Yui's character was all outta whack but they did give a decent explanation for that which I'm surprised to see from a 90's anime. I expecte dthem to say, oh yeah nakago lied to you once and you threw a loooong hissy fit over nothing or she was being "brainwashed" by some kind of magic.
so the fact it didnt go all stereotypical was great.

furthermore, I like how early in the anime they adressed how everyone was a story book character and therefore not real I feel too many animes just ignore that fact and go He's real to me!

but the anime's not perfect what with mainly chichiri's annoying catchphrase "dont 'cha know" that sends flash backs of that annoying villian from Wedding Peach. not to mention the whole "flash back episode" midway into the anime.
and I also found it a tad cliqhed that almost all 7 warriors dropped like flies almost 1 episode after the other once one of them died all to comeback as ghosts for 1 final battle

Plus this anime actually had me symphatize w/ the villian, not because of his past but before that when he said "all I want is to create my own world much like how you wanted to escape your world" it all sounded perfectly reasonable and unlike the typically power hungry god complexer.

that being said I felt the ending though was perfect. Miyaka was selfless up to the very end and surprisngly mature. She passed her exam and she got tamahome, because with all the story invested into their relationship they NEEDED to have them end up together.
