These 2 long and nice series have countless similarities.
In both the female protagonist is an average schoolgirl who gets transported into another world with a historical setting; shortly after that, she discovers to be a miko and to have some kind of power; later on, she falls in love with a guy she met in this new world. The main difference is that Inuyasha has a stronger personality than Tamahome, and Kagome is not as annoying and useless as Miaka.
These manga, obviously, also share the same genres: adventure, fantasy, romance, drama, comedy. Fushigi Yugi is a reverse harem shoujo manga, while Inuyasha is more like a shounen and has supernatural elements. read more
A "normal" girl gets put into a feudal type era and meets a guy she likes...but they're different enough to be really interesting! Like they go on different quests in each one...anyway...both good (so far)
In the Series "Fushigi Yuugi" and "From Far Away" the female leads are brought to a strange and foreign land to save them as their priestess/leader. Each have their daring knight who will defend her at all costs.
Very similar stories featuring the four gods. Normal girl is transported into "another world" where she is told that she's a magical priestess who has to work with her many bishie guardians to summon a god. The characters are different enough that it doesn't seem like you're reading the same exact story, but still fill very similar roles in the plot. Fushigi Yugi is a bit more romance-y, while Haruka is more harem-y, but there's quite a bit of overlap in how the romantic subplots develop.
Both Hero Tales and Fushigi Yuugi have themes based around the Chinese constellations. While Hero Tales is a shonen and Fushigi Yuugi is Shoujo, they both have great action sequences, great characters and interactions, and overall great story.
Both set in historical times, where the heroine traveled around to look for companions. However, the heroine was someone from modern world. She came from other world, and was named as a priestess that'd bring happiness to the country she descended on. And she began gathering her destined warriors but it wasn't an easy feat. Like every other manga, a villain has to wreck everything.
Unlike Akatsuki no Yona having a subtle romance getup, Fushigi yuugi romance line developed in a relatively fast pace. The manga was published in the 90s but it's definitely one of my favorite manga. It has anime too.
Not to mention this manga made me cry.  read more
Hot hero. Beautiful art. Lovey dovey moments!
Strange Dragon, the hero turns into a dragon at times. Reminds me of seiryu. Old China background. Outfits are similar. Fantasy romance. Tamahome-like shy hero. Funny moments.
Both feature a girl who's whisked away to another world. Fushigi Yugi has far more romance, with a lot of action, comedy, and drama, while Escaflowne has a fairly standard shounen plot with a dash of romance.
The art is kinda similar, since it is from the same author.
As for the storyline, The way both stories ended is "sort of" similar ( sort of, meaning not fully) You'll understand once you've read them. Of course, they have different ending like one ended up in a happy ending while the other is somewhat happy and yet kinda sad ending..
By the same author, it holds the same charms, style and has another incredible story. The characters are just as inspiring. While the story is fantasy, everyone is just as believable. FY was, in fact, my introduction to Watase.
Warning: Only books 1-13 are really really good. 14-18 aren't so.
Another great story from the same author, although FY's story is founded more on a fantasy basis. FY has less horror, more humour and a lighter tone generally, but the love plots in Watase's works are similar enough. I preferred FY by far, but both mangas are worth a read.
Both are fantasy adventures, where the main leading girl is transported to a fantasy land and she must gather others and form a group. In Dream Saga, Yuuki gathers her classmates who also go to the other world, and in Fushigi Yugi, Miaka gathers her celestial warriors. However, Dream Saga has a lot less drama and is more innocent; it is also a lot shorter as well.
First of all both series were published back in 1992 and created by prolific authors. Story-wise they don't share any similarity but both series is centered around a teenage girl who are both whiny, gluttonous and has hair buns. They are given special roles that involves becoming a special individual that has to find their celestial warriors in order to fulfill their specific roles.
Well the two series doesn't have any similarities but they do contain adventures and great character development so I'm recommending that if you read one or the another you might like the other series. So enjoy. Both have great adventure story and of course they both have their fair share of romance.
After all this years no one had ever thought of making recommendation for these two series. If you love the classic Fushigi Yugi I definitely give my highest recommendation to read Fushigi Yugi Genbu Kaiden. After-all its the Prequel of one of the most beloved popular shojo series. Of course its no brainer that they share the same concept and basic plot however the similarity ends there. Fushigi Yugi is cheesy and at times annoyingly sappy although entertaining altogether whilst Genbu Kaiden is more mature, deep, melancholic and has a much complex story. Both are definitely addictive and has memorable characters. If you want to see how Watase-sensei has grown and improved as both a storyteller and an artist, Genbu Kaiden will not disappoint. I highly highly recommend this prequel for those who love Fushigi Yugi. Of course new readers aren't really required to know the original to appreciate Genbu Kaiden. If you enjoy one or the other it's gauranteed you'll end up liking them both. For the record, Takiko and her romance story in Genbu Kaiden is the opposite of what Miaka and her romance was.  read more
While the storylines are different for these two mangas (one is about a girl dragged into a book, the other a girl attempting to be an official) the feel of them are very simiar. You have the female lead attempting to lead her people, experiancing trials along the way. Both are surrounded by guys that only want to protect her, and an emperor that is deeply in love. The art on both is splendid as well. If you love one, you will adore the other.
