This is the prequel to Fushigi Yugi: The Mysterious Play (in the process of being rereleased by Viz Media). It's rare for a manga to make me this interested in the characters in the first book of the series, but I was - despite not being quite sure what was going on. The historical setting of the real-world part of the manga (early 20th-century Japan) is well-researched, and the notes are interesting. Yuu Watase is also the author of Alice 19th, and some of the same themes of belonging and family ties are evident here.
