day, Miaka and her bestfriend Yui went to a library. While Yui is busy doing her
research for school, Miaka saw a red bird and followed it as it entered a
restricted area. Yui saw her as she is a bout to open a book called Shijin
Tenchi Sho (Book of Four Gods; Four Gods Sky and Earth.. whatever, dunno which
one's more exact). They opened the book which was written in Chinese. Luckily,
Yui can read them.
were surrounded by a bright red light and was brought to an entirely different
world. As they were strangers, they were attacked by some goons. Both tried to
help themselves out until a good-looking guy (This is an understatement!) with
the sign "ogre" on his forehead came to rescue them.
two girls thanked him but the guy asked for money. Yui was again
wrapped by the same red light from before and was sent back to the library.
Miaka was looking for some money.
When Yui realized
that she was back in the library, she got worried as Miaka is nowhere to be
seen. She went on reading the Chinese book and was surprised to find out that
the person being described was actually Miaka (referred to in the book as
"Suzaku no Miko"). Yui continues on reading until she was brought
again to the other world and because of some unlucky incident, became the
"Seiryuu no Miko" - Suzaku no Miko's worst rival.
will happen to the two bestfriends now? This story is not just between the
rivalry of the two girls for power but also for love. ~~
The four gods described in this story were actually the gods from Ancient China
- Suzaku, Seiryuu, Genbu and Byakko. It says that there's a legend that a girl
from another world will come to save the people by summoning these Gods and ask
for three wishes.
Here're the names
of the Mikos. ("Miko" was translated as Priestess or Maiden in the
different version I've seen.)
Suzaku no Miko
- Miaka Yuuki
Miko - Yui Hongo
Genbu no Miko
- Takiko Ohkuda (Originally, it was her. But in the OAV, Yui also became the
Genbu no Miko)
Byakko no Miko
- Suzuno Ohsugi
manga has 18 volumes all in all. The anime (tv series) has 52 episodes while the OAV
has three (Fushigi Yuugi Eikoden). Though the entire story covers partial
nudity, the language isn't vulgar.
so here are the characters. (*These series has soooo many characters so i'll
just name the important peepz, ok?! ^^)
female lead in the story. Miaka is just an ordinary high school student
before she became the Suzaku no Miko. This girl sure eats a lot!
I'm wondering how she maintains her figure with that kind of diet
(^^).At first, she was ecstatic at the idea of becoming a Miko. She said
it has been her dream to be "the center of attraction" ^_~
(can't think of a good word). She soon developed feelings for Tamahome
because of his being nice to her. When she confessed, Tamahome turned
her down saying that he's just doing his job as a warrior for the Miko.
But as the story progressed, they both fell in love with each other. (an
interest. When Miaka confessed her feelings for him, (Here's how he
dumped her, "Sorry, I don't feel anything for you like that.."
ouch!) he didn't really mean to hurt her. It's just that his main
concern at that time is earning money to support his family. Tamahome is
very devoted to his job to protect the Miko and eventually fell in love
with her as well. (Any girl who have seen this series definitely must
have been in love with this guy... he's the man!!!)
emperor of the Konan empire. This guy is a narcissist! He adores himself
so much! hehehe! ^^ Sometimes I thought he's a gay for he uses the word
"beautiful" to describe himself. But he's definitely not one as
he's also in love with Miaka. Hotohori is a lonely guy who took over the
throne when he was just a 14-year-old boy. He thought that one day when
the Miko arrives, he'll have her as his wife that can take him away from
be fooled by her good looks cause she's a he! a crossdresser! ^^
(There's a reason why she's doing this. U gotta watch the OAV!) As a
girl, Nuriko is deeply in love with the emperor Hotohori. She would
strangle Miaka for being close to him!^^. However, Nuriko, despite her
skinny physique, is a brawn. She can carry tons and tons of whatever
is somewhat like a sorcerer. He can cast spells. He's wearing this
strange mask with a happy expression all the time. Behind it is a scar
around his right eye. (of course, there's also a reason for that. Again,
you'll have to watch the OAV!) Chichiri is also one funny guy.
is from a group of famous bandits. When their leader died, a
another guy took over the throne which was supposed to be his. This
really fat guy (who tried to hit on Miaka, eeww! how gross!) got this fan
that can produce fire in just a swing (which is again supposed to be for
him). Miaka and the others helped him regain his slot. At first, he was
hesitant to join her crew and do his job as a member of the Suzaku seven
warrior. However, he changed his mind and swore his loyalty to the Miko.
(You also have to watch the OAV if you want to see a different Tasuki...
really different! ^_~)
first I was confused whether Chiriko is a girl or a boy. But he's
definitely a boy it's just that he's still young that's why he looks
like a cute girl (and those big-rounded eyes added to the confusion).
Anyway, O-Dokun is a smart boy. He's a scholar. What else??
is the healer. He's the guy who healed Tamahome's father. uhm.. when
Miaka first saw him he looks like an extremely old guy that she didn't
notice that he was the same guy and when he his beard! (Even I
didn't notice it also..^^) But anyway, he got desperate when this very
pretty woman wo's his girlfriend got sick and.. ok. I don't remember
much anymore... (his real name is Myo Juan)
Miaka's bestfriend who became one of her foes. Yui doesn't really wanted
to be the Miko for seiryuu but because of some unfortunate thing that
happened to her, she was forced to be one. Actually, she agreed to it as
well because she wanted to take revenge on Miaka for "leaving"
her. She also fell in love with Tamahome and tried to take him away from
