Finally managed to collect the whole series. This was the manga that got me addicted to reading manga. It's an epic love story, with adventure, action, humor, the works. It also hits deeply on an emotional level. There are scenes that make me bawl like a baby, even years and years later reading / watching it for the umpteenth time. I'm so glad to have finally completed this collection in my library.
Fushigi Yuugi was my childhood series and I have been searching for the high quality collections. It was not a disappointment with this version at all. The printing is good, quality of paper and color is awesome and I love the extra color pages with artworks.

If you are looking for a good classical manga series to read, this is one of the recommendation - a not-so-smart high school girl is desperate about her exams got into a mysterious book, becomes Shizaku priestess, starts a dangerous adventure to summon Shuzaku god with help of 7 warriors and learns lifetime lessons from this trip. Along her trip, she has to stand up against her own childhood friend, who is also a priestess for the enemy god - Seiryu and found her true love with one of her legend warrior - Tamahome. Whoever summoned the god will be granted 3 wishes. Hence, whoever summons her god first will win the competition. This series got all in one: romantic (straight/gay/lesbian love), friendship, adventurous, nudity, etc.... The story line is well-written and the drawing is beautiful. The concept of going inside a book and becoming the heroine is not new nowadays but I'm sure this is one of the first manga developing this idea in the 90s. You may find the heroine - Miaka annoying (me too sometimes) but it has its own reason to have such heroine. Personally I enjoyed this series very much but won't recommend for anyone below 16. Strong nudity and sometimes sexual content will be a good reason to reconsider whether you are ready for this. If you are over 16, give it a shot. You may find it as interesting as I did.

The downside of these books will be the extra pages for explaining the sounds or information in the book. I will prefer it to be less serious and more comic-style, like the Sailormoon book series I bought recently. But after all, it's just my own preference. :)
I absolutely love this series. I own our of the vizbig edition copies. Working on owning the rest. The story is fantastic!I highly recommend reading it!
Having previously read the first three novels, I had no doubt the fourth novel would be just as good. It exceeded my expectations. The manga seems to get better and better with each volume. Personally, this is my favorite volume since the bandit Tasuki is introduced (my favorite character). Miaka continues her quest to find the remaining Suzaku Senshi and runs into all sort of trouble. I highly recommend this volume as well as the rest of the series. Money well-spent.
I was so excited to add this to my collection, I won't reveal anything in the manga, though it's getting more and more to the epic battle!! Beautiful art in the end by the amazing woman that made the story.
Incredible series, received in NEW condition, highly recommend to buy in this 3-in-1 style than any other, worth it! (aug 2010)
Daughter loves this series
Ok, now taking into consideration that this book is totally great, in fact so great that i can't even tell you the 1/8th of it. So i will introduce you to tama-home he is really to-die-for, and to think, manga artists get paid to draw him all day... anyway tama-home was (and occasionally still is) always looking to make some cash, not because he is greedy, but to help his family. When he meets Miaka, a girl from today, who opens a book and goes to this other land, he is brusqe, but after she goes home for a while, (3 months) then he realizes how much he loves her, which is a good thing because miaka fell for him a bit a go...
