(I want to point out I'd mark this for spoilers, but the COVER ITSELF is a spoiler for a storyline that doesn't occur for another volume. It’s actually a spoiler for the series IN GENERAL once you've read it and realize where that image comes from continuity wise. But super pretty).

Welcome back to another recap of Fushigi Yugi! In this volume we get to read about that frakking storyline I hated the most in the anime*. It plays out almost to the frakking scene exactly like it does in the anime to

These are seriously growing on me. I'm addicted to the story line. It's cheesy and, in some instances, very formulaic, but ugh, love it.

This is actually my second read through and this book has the first scene I actually remember. The characters' relationships are finally being tested, which is nice. It makes for good character growth. A lot of the relationships are still really shallow, but it's something that can be built upon. The thing I don't get is how Yui could blame Miaka for being raped. Even with the time difference between the book and the real world, there's no way Miaka could have done anything after escaping the bo ...more

We meet the seventh and final Suzaku seishi...or do we? Tamahome's rescue party is assembled. But we already know that Nakago and Yui are up to no good.

Tasuki and Chichiri meet up (one of my favorite bromances ever). Miaka and Tamahome are able to communicate through a mirror thanks to Chichiri. :') They plan to meet up at midnight, and Tamahome has to bring Yui and the scroll with him. She brings Tasuki and Chichiri with her.

But remember Nakago and Yui? Yea...those two made sure things don't go

Pertama kali dibeli dan dibaca pada tanggal 3 Mei 2002.

Cerita ala sinetron pun dimulai... jreng-jeng...

Dengan obat jampi-jampi Tamahome lupa akan cintanya pada Miaka serta berusaha membunuhnya dan para ksatria Suzaku.

Bisakah Yui menerima Tamahome yang mendadak cinta padanya?

Bisakah Miaka melupakan Tamahome?

Apakah kali ini tiba giliran Hotohori untuk merebut cinta Miaka?

Nantikan lanjutan kisah ini pada episode berikutnya.

In this volume, Tamahome becomes a Captive of Qu-Dong to avert a war, but this decision may have horrible consequences for both him and Miyaka. Fushigi Yugi is not the best written series (although the art is always sharp) but, like potato chips, it's bound to be addicting. Looking forward to reading vol 6.

Miaka has finally found the last of constellation. It's time to take Tamahome back from Yui. However, Yui and Nagako gives him a poison that makes him forget Miaka and consider her his enemy.

The draw is getting better.

I watched and loved the Anime version of this since I was a kid. It also landed on my favorites.

For now, I got no plans for buying a copy.
