Fushigi Yûgi: Genbu Kaiden, Vol. 12

Fushigi Yûgi: Genbu Kaiden, Vol. 12 - Yuu Watase Such a beautiful story, and undoubtedly superior to the original Fushigi Yuugi. The art is dazzling. The plot seems more mature than the original, and Takiko turns out to be a strong and very likeable heroine. Unlike Miaka, she doesn't let her feelings for Uruki define her life and her quest.
The end was perfect. And better than Fushigi Yuugi's. Some stories don't work that well with a 100% happily ever after. Maybe the best part was the fact I did know that Takiko's father would kill her in order to prevent Genbu from devouring her, and then commit suicide because it had been mentioned in Fushigi Yuugi, but the way these events were executed still surprised me a bit. It was really good.
I hope Watase decides to write Suzuno's story in the future!
