When schoolgirl Takiko Okuda attempts to destroy her father's translation of The Universe of the Four Gods, she is instead literally sucked into the story, becoming the Priestess of Genbu in an epic journey to find the seven Celestial Warriors!

Takiko helps Uruki grieve for the loss of a loved one—a loss she knows only too well. But now that the Qudong army knows how to fight Celestial power, Takiko and the Celestial Warriors have no time to lose. As they prepare to rescue Teg, Uruki learns the truth about the prophecy: to summon Genbu, the Priestess will have to sacrifice her life. Refusing to let another death happen, Uruki vows to send Takiko back to the safety of her own world…by any means necessary.

Meet the Author

A manga artist for over ten years, Watase's debut came in 1989 at the age of 18 when her short story PAJAMA DE OJAMA (An Intrusion in Pajamas) appeared in the monthly Shôjo Comic manga anthology. Since then she has written and drawn some 50 volumes worth of different short stories and long-running manga series, including the fantastically popular FUSHIGI YÛGI, also available in English from VIZ Media. Her works have provided the basis for two television series, an OVA series, anime soundtrack CDs, and a string of novels.

    Lovely series...

    I've read quite a bit of Watase, and her work is constantly improving. This is her latest series and it's amazing. I recommend reading the original Fushigi Yugi before this series. You don't need to but it does help. Great read, I recommend it to anyone looking for a great manga.
