Fushigi Yugi, Volume 2

Product Details

About the Author

A manga artist for over ten years, Watase's debut came in 1989 at the age of 18 when her short story PAJAMA DE OJAMA (An Intrusion in Pajamas) appeared in the monthly Shojo Comic manga anthology. Since then she has written and drawn some 50 volumes worth of different short stories and long-running manga series, including the fantastically popular FUSHIGI YUGI, also available in English from VIZ Media. Her works have provided the basis for two television series, an OVA series, anime soundtrack CDs, and a string of novels.


Miaka Yuki was transported into an ancient realm and given the task of assembling the seven celestial warriors of Suzaku. At the same time, Miaka's rival, Yui, is assembling the celestial warriors of Seiryu on the behalf of a kingdom with a despotic ruler. In this volume, which houses volumes seven, eight, and nine of the original series, Miaka and her warriors face ambushes and retreat from Seiryu's forces. Despite the attacks, Miaka finds herself falling in love with Tamahome, one of the celestial warriors. Many readers of the original Fushigi Yugi series should consider purchasing the VizBig editions, which preserve the original right-to-left presentation of the text and include color art extras as well as all of the mangaka marginalia. The artwork is bigger because the page sizes are slightly larger, which may appeal to some graphic novel readers and graphic novel writers and illustrators in training. Verdict This is probably the best known series of shojo fantasy currently available and should be a core title in any shojo manga collection. Recommended for older teen readers because of violence, nudity, some sexuality, and sexual violence.-Christine Gertz, Univ. of Alberta Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
