I love Fushigi yugi! When I read one book, I kept reading until I read each single one of them! Every night I read all the Fushigi yugi books! It's impossible for me to put it down! Man, the guy characters are so darn cute like Tamahome, Hotohori, Tasuki, Nakago, Amiboshi and Suboshi!! I also like Nuriko even though he's a cross dresser! I am Yu Watase's NUMBER 1 FAN!!

Fushigi Yugi was the first manga title I read, and I've been hooked ever since. The series is fantastically engaging, with a great storyline and unforgettable characters. I can't wait to finish the series, and I'm quite beside myself waiting for Genbu Kaiden. (And the anime is quite good, by the way.) =D All of Watase's works are BANGIN'!

I've been reading Fushigi Yuugi for 3 years. It is still my favorite manga. I just got 13 and found the ending to part one. I cried.... It is an amazing love story, with some tragedy and lots of humor. Great story!

I only read up to the middle because my father came to the bookstore to bring me home and i didn't have any money to buy it. but i can honestly say that this is one book that i intend on spending serious amounts of money on. it is very funny and if you like fantasy manga then look no farther.

This is one of the greatest mangas I've ever read! I have the whole series and am looking forward for the next books to come out so I can complete my series. I read the books over and over again, always laughing at the funny parts even though I've read them so many times. I reccomend this book to anyone who likes and enjoys Anime. It's full of romance and humor with great characters anyone could love. Read and enjoy!

I really enjoyed Fushigi Yugi, Vol.1:Priestess. I'm taking Japanese, actually, and I'm getting to like everything about Japan. This truly is a great manga, and I recommend it to ANYONE! Barnes and Noble, I salute you for having such great manga in stock.

I didn't see the anime before in the life but I have heard about Fushigi Yugi from a variety of my friends. Near Rockefeller center, there is a Japanese book store and I went there to find the manga. I only saw the new edition though (which is cheaper *phew*). It is the best manga I have ever read. Miaka can be ditzy but we all love her. Tamahone, on the other hand, is probably going to get on my nerves in the later volumes because of his money loving personality. I already know the entire story but I'm waiting for 'Oracle' to come out in the new edition. This is a must read. Yu Watase is an excellent artist and she manages to show the emotions just through one picture. Read it and love it!
