My one gripe that I'm noticing while doing this reread is that the warriors are found so easily in this series.

(my apologies to anyone who read vol 5's review some of those events actually happened here and I just got confused.)

Welcome to another Fushigi Yugi recap! This volume is actually when Miaka's love saves Tamahome. So there's that.

What else happens? Well for starters, Nakago "consoles" Yui by snuggling her while they're both in robes. Meanwhile everybody likes at Tamahome for trying to kill them all, though Tamahome doesn't remember any of this (Tasuki meanwhile has recurring night terrors of his

Actual rating: 3.5

This sixth volume of Fushigi Yugi is an actual step-up from the previous volumes, but it takes a long time to get to that point. The majority of this book still contains the same tired hallmarks of a Yu Watase shojo series – heroine running off in an ill-guided attempt to make things right, brainwashed lovers, back-stabbing ex-friends, and lots of unrequited crushes and love that never go anywhere. But the ending might show the different and very welcome direction this series i

Heartbroken, Miaka has given up on Tamahome, who has been turned against by Nakago's dangerous magic and her once best friend Yui. Hotohori is more than willing to comfort her, but Miaka cannot stop thinking about Tamahome. Soon she will have to summon Suzaku, but will she have all the celestial warriors in order to do so?

Summoner is an interesting volume because things don't happen the way they should. Although this is the ending to the first part of Fushigi Yuugi it doesn't end the way you mig

If love truly conquers all, then Miaka has proved it. Though it's almost impossible for Tamahome to be his old self again, Miaka can turn him back into his original self before he can kill her and others.

Since all the seven Suzaku constellations have gathered, Miaka begins the ceremony to call Suzaku. However, it turns out that the last constellations she finds is actually a Seiryu constellation spying on her.

Hey, I can probably count this as a book with a love triangle for my 2015 reading challenge. Though sometimes it seems like a love octagon or something.

At the beginning of this volume, I was like 'Oh hey, they're nearing the end of their journey!' and then guess what - NO. THEY'RE NOT. Now they have a whole new journey to go on (of course). And I'm kinda hoping the guy that ended up dead in this volume is not actually dead.

After the botched rescue attempt at Kutou, the Miaka and Tasuki recuperate back at Konan. Hotohori decides that this is a perfect opportunity to make his move, but Miaka rebuffs his advances.

Sure enough, the capitol is invaded by an assassin--the last person they would expect. Even as the Suzaku camp survive the attack, all is not well yet.

The series is heating up now!

The characters continue to become deeper and deeper, which is really nice. I had forgotten about the twist with Chiriko/Ameboshi. (This is my second read through of the book.) And the art continues to be lovely.

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.

Fairly good. I just can't warm up to this series, but it is a solid read anyhow. Off to ebay to find a new home. =)
