Takiko goes to an oracle to help her locate the rest of the celestial seven - The entire temple are massacred by her enemies although she does manage to find one more of the warriors - rock monster Namame.

Love this series - story, art, emotion - it has it all. The characters are great and suitably different from the original FY cast.

I started this series forever ago. I think it was like in 2003. I never knew what it's about & just picked it up at my library. I was not even old enough for the rating that they gave it, but I was intrigued. I believe they only had up to volume 5 so I just stopped reading it. Somehow (thankfully) I was reminded if this story and so I began re-reading it online and oh my gods I feel in love. It's great Takiko is such a great priestess and I love her connection with all the Celestial Warriors ...more

So Far out of the three, This book is my favorite. I love the action in this book. Takiko and the three Celestial Warriors are go on a journey to the Oracle Anlu who the power to find the other remaining Celestial Warriors which was a challenge since she is protected but a Celestial Warrior named Namame which as the power to summon the Earth or rock. I love the story of Namame which he closed himself from everyone else because everybody thought he was a beast until he met Anlu who befriended him ...more

At Turning Point Rockfield, they go to consult the oracle Anlu. There they are attacked and find and are saved by the rock Warrior Noname, who can form into different rock shapes or be himself as a small animated rock figure. Noname can't talk. Anlu tries to misinform assassins following them, and an oracle can not lie, so she is killed. She has given Takiko her amulet which lights up as it gets nearer to Celestial Warriors so she can find the rest of them. She prophesized that they would find t ...more

Seguimos con la búsqueda de estrellas de Genbu. El país es más grande de los que creían en un principio así que buscan la ayuda de las sacerdotisas videntes para que les ayuden. Así, casi sin creérselo se encuentran con Namame, custodiado por la sacerdotisa Anruu. Esta estrella es una de las más curiosas de toda la saga y sin duda una de mis preferidas. Puede que sea de roca, pero es extremadamente adorable y achuchable. Qué pena que en su vida lo haya pasado tan mal, aunque... ¿será uno de los ...more
Another Warrior is found and lots more trouble. I absolutely love the heroine, Takiko. She is easier to relate to and easier to like. Uruki (Limdo) is becoming increasing hotter. Switching genders so nifty.

In FYGB, I feel like there's a lot of bad things going to happen, really unpredictable things, compared to FY, and I am both excited and nervous about reading them, but I will still continue to the next book.

Still AWESOME! I just order volumes 4-11 from Amazon! Apparently 12 will be the end of the story, which if you read or watched Fushigi Yugi, you know how it ends, and it is NOT good. I don't want to dwell on the impending tragic ending right now though, these books are just too good!

Read this two nights eager to read more!
So limdo is proving to be a good guy and not the bad guy and he does everything for takiko.
I swear the way the author has drawn is just pretty and i like it because she doesn't leave any empty spaces but fills it up and doesn't waste and i like her notes.

Lady Anlu (the Oracle) is sooo freaking adorable X3 However, this volume made me sad. Not gonna give spoilers though. Those who have read it will know why. Also, Hagus needs to go die in a freaking hole. -______-

I've read this in 2010 because I simply could not move on with the Fushigi Yugi: The Mysterious Play. I really had fun. So nostalgic!!!

I'm officially addicted to this series. If you liked the original Fushigi Yugi, this is just another piece of the bigger picture - and it's good.
