Continuing my adventures in girl manga reading, today I check out Fushigi Yugi Genbu Kaiden.

Fushigi Yugi Genbu Kaiden is a prequel to Fugshigi Yugi. Unfortunately, I’ve never heard of Fushigi Yugi to begin with! Okuda Takiko is girl whose family is in ruins. Her mom just died, and her father is obsessed with his book, The Universe of the Four Gods. Right after he finishes writing it, Takiko runs in and snatches it from him! She runs away with it, complains about not being wanted, and generally acts like an emo.

For revenge, against her mean ol’ dad, she rips the book in half! This causes her to be magically transported to some snow level. She wanders around and then encounters a bondage girl strapped to some obelisk.

Bondage girl tells Takikio to get the heck outta there, but it’s too late. Some snow monsters (or something) show up! And that’s the end of the chapter. Seriously. This chapter was really short; only 22 pages.

It really feels as though Shojo Beat didn’t include enough for this manga. What I’m left with after reading the first chapter is basically confusion. I didn’t get a feel for the characters at all. Maybe I needed to read the first Fushigi Yugi manga before reading this. Basically, this manga preview chapter hasn’t hooked me in at all.

:\ I’m not a fan of FYGK, but I can say that you’re supposed to be able to understand this series without reading FY. You just catch cameos and trademark signs if you’ve read both series, that’s all, and have a better idea of what’s going to happen (I mean, you *see* this girl in FY as an old woman near the end of the series, and she kind of tells you). But just treat it as an adventure story and that’s basically as much as you need.

Ah, I see. I guess I was just more disappointed in the fact that the first chapter reveals nothing, and works really badly as a “teaser.” I mean, its job was to get me interested in the manga, but all it did was totally confuse me and turn me off to it.

I got the fist volume as a gift from my friend and i loved it. Its not my favorite but i enjoed the stoyr and im wating for the fourth volume to come out. Its not as bad as others are making it seem.

This manga is not bad as you think…. you can’t judge the story by the intro, you know…. although you thought that it didn’t reveal alot on the intro, it doesn’t mean that it sucks! you have to read the whole manga before judging its content on just the intro.

Well, I disagree all of you.. I’ve read the whole manga and it is more than amazing and interesting.. I was upset not to find the 32th chapther updated.. I’m waiting 4 it eagerly..I love this manga and I wish they will make into anime series..love it love it love it 🙂

I tried a little of fushigi yuugi, and wow. It was bad. The characters are all so one track…there’s something I can’t pinpoint that annoys me about any of this mangaka’s work. I don’t like shoujo usually, but this mangaka’s struck me as some of the worst I’ve ever seen. However, my experience with shoujo is fairly limited since almost all of them seem to annoy me.
I’m going to get flamed so badly. >.<
