This is a review that I wrote on mangafox some years ago, under my username 'lady_ribbon". The reason I'm posting it here is because its still so true. (Some parts have been slightly edited).

I have heard a lot about this manga, mostly from raving, insane fangirls who can't type or use punctuation properly. Despite that, I wanted to read it since I love historical anime/manga, and this one seemed really popular.

I was so positive I would love it to pieces.

I was utterly wrong.

I have read all 18 volumes, watched the anime fully, and the O.V.A's. I'll keep my ranting to the manga though, since this read more

I cannot believe that no one has yet submitted a review on this multi level, multi themed, multi quality manga. Because I feel it to be necessary, I am going to separate this review into two halves; two reviews. One for what was meant to be the series (1-13) and one for what became of the series (14-18)

My ratings are actually based on this first review; the main series itself.

First off, the story is astounding; my favourite to date. It was original and intriguing, emotional and inspirational, gripping and not predictable. It worked on several levels, allowing it to appeal to a wider audience than read more

First of, (This is one of my favorite manga and lets just say I Rated everything outstanding.)

A review for the main story, (Volumes 1-13)

Story: The story revolves around Miaka a stubborn, gluttonous and most of the time a whin'er high school girl. While in the library she got sucked and literally transported back in ancient China. She learned that in order to get back to the real world she must become the priestess of Suzaku. As being a priestess her task is to gather her celestial warriors and summon the beast god to save the country in brink of catastrophe. She will then be read more

I've finished reading the manga (although I'm quite sure I haven't finished the anime (but yes, I know the anime ending, and the gist of the OVAs...well the 2nd in particular). Though I would just looove to read Tasuki's backstory (written by someone else than Watase-sensei though)...

Well, what do I say? I sometimes wished that I could be like Miaka and get sucked into some fantastical "other universe" just to escape reality..but then, who hasn't, even just once? Especially if you get to meet quite a few good-looking young men along the way, and end up having not only 2 of them falling in love read more

Coming from someone who usually reads more gory, twisted stuff, I gotta say, this is one of the best mangas I've read lately. While I couldn't give it perfect tens all across, it is DEFINITELY a great manga, especially to someone who's new to it. And here are some breif reasons why.
1.) The overall story. While the plot is sort of shojo-cliche (average school girl ets sucked into different world and given a great responsibility), it has a lot of good twists. Like, REALLY good. I would find myself thinking "wow...that was stupid..." and then reading on to realize that whatever happened was actually read more

It took me a while to start reading this just because I didn't think I would find it interesting. If there is an anime version made of the manga, I usually like to watch it before reading the manga, but as the anime seemed a bit dull, I forgot all about it. However, last month I found myself without a manga to read and I got a hold of Fushigi Yuugi volume 1. As there was nothing better to do I decided to give it a try.

I didn't get captivated at first, it took me about a week to read the first volume but then read more

Fushigi Yuugi has been my favorite eversince my elementary school days and up until now, i am surprised that im still engaged to this eventhough i am in my twenties ;).

I have finished the anime and OVA's and started reading the manga after reading the Fushigi Yuugi : Genbu Kaiden. Suddenly, i feel the rush to read the manga itself (i was not planning to since ive watched the episodes). Though there's only little difference than the anime, it seems like it gives me the same feelings. I guess, even if i watch it over and over again or even read, it'll give me the read more

Note: This review is only for Part 1 (Volumes 1-13) The author intended it to end here, and it shows. Part 2 was written due to fan demand, and it shows. It definitely feels like a tacked on afterthought. Now, onto the review...

I think this is one of the best shoujo manga out there. It takes the basic plot bones of a shounen manga: Teenager faced with epic quest and who must defeat ultimate evil, adds romance and manages to turn it into a beautiful, gripping shoujo manga.

Art: The art is very 90's, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Unlike a lot of read more

I absolutely LOVE this manga and the anime. This as got to be my favorite story of all times. There is an excellent plot line, plot twists, and characters you can't help but fall in love with <3! Themes of romance and friendship are highly evident. Some of the plot twists in here absolutely broke my heart. :'( RIP guys... The story takes place in the present when Miaka is a middle schooler who loves food, and has a older brother and a mother (where's her father, idk?). Miaka is best friends with her childhood friend Yui. When the two girls go to the library read more

I fell in love with this shoujo manga, I truely think everything about it is just beautiful. I artwork is perfectly drawn, there's intresting characters, and the plot is very intresting. For a shoujo, it won me a shounen fan as one.
