Manga Monday # 16- Review of Fushigi Yûgi: Genbu Kaiden

Fushigi Yûgi: Genbu Kaiden

Review: I love Yuu Watase, she is just amazing in all of her artwork and series. I have almost all of them, and that’s quite a bit.
This series is just a different version of her other Fushigi Yugi. Different characters, love interest, plot some what the same, but the whole series is shorter than the other one. Plus the story is a lot happier than the first too. I’m not saying it’s sadness free, but the over all tone is lighter, and better than the first.
4 out of 5 stars.
1 – 12 volumes.
Manga. Shojo. Fantasy. Romance.
Published by  Viz Media LLC.
Summary: When schoolgirl Takiko Okuda attempts to destroy her father’s translation of “The Universe of the Four Gods,” she is instead literally sucked into the story, becoming the Priestess of Genbu in an epic journey to find the seven Celestial Warriors!In her first encounter, she meets the mysterious outlaw Limdo, a Celestial Warrior with a tattoo of the Chinese character for “woman” on his chest. Limdo can not only summon the wind as one of his special powers, but he can also transform into a woman!

Takiko meets up with the bowman, Chamka, who is hunting Limbdo. It seems Chamka is one of the seven Celestial Warriors as well…
