The second four-disc set of Fushigi Yûgi continues the adventures of Miaka and Yui, two Japanese middle-school girls drawn into an ancient Chinese book, The Universe of the Four Gods. The later episodes are darker in tone, marked by threats of rape, attempted rape, and the deaths of several secondary characters (some of whom die two or three times). Miaka and her friends, who fight in the name of the "beast-god" Suzaku, are pitted against the warriors of the rival deity, Seiryu: twins Amiboshi and Suboshi; werewolf Ashitare; lightning-wielding Soi; Miboshi, who looks like a tiny monk; Tomo, who dresses like a Peking Opera general; and the icily vicious Nagako. Nagako commands this troop in the name of Yui, who is waging a vendetta against Miaka. Despite the myriad plots, battles, and spells, director Hajime Kamegaki focuses on the romance between Miaka and martial artist Tamahome. Tamahome has lost the outlaw panache that initially made him attractive, and Miaka has grown no more prepossessing. She whines continuously, and every third episode seems to end with her either declaring she'll never forgive some evil or apologizing for not living up to someone's expectations. What does Tamahome see in her? Their endless proclamations of undying fidelity leave little time for the activities of the more colorful and interesting supporting characters--transvestite Nuriko, sorcerer-in-training Chichiri, and mountain bandit Tasuki. While Miaka and her friends slog on, her brother Keisuke and his friend Tetsuya are reading The Universe of the Four Gods and tracking its effects in the real world. The final battle that pits Tomahome against Nagako and Suzaku against Seiryu proves more anticlimactic than apocalyptic. Kamegaki has several key events occur off camera, including Yui's final wish to Seiryu and how Miaka escapes from the penalty customarily imposed on those who summon Suzaku. Fushigi Yûgi should be seen one or two episodes at a time: watching for more than an hour is like eating a box of bonbons in one sitting. Rated 13 and up for violence, nudity, and sexual situations, including suggestions of rape. --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars The Tragic and Joyful End to a Beautiful Saga! January 1, 2001
Format:DVD
I'd bought every single overpriced Fushigi Yugi VHS. Yes, I did. 16 volumes at $30... You can do the math. Still, at the mention of the new DVD volume's arrival, I shivered with excitement, and with good reason. I went out and got it ASAP. It now sits prettily on my DVD shelf, right next to the Suzaku DVD box, which sits next to the 16 VHS volumes. That's how much I love this series.

The Seiyuu DVD box is a set of four DVDs, each disc holding the equivalent of 4 of the previously released VHS (that is, if you count both English dubbed and Japanese subtitled versions). The transfer to DVD was practically flawless, and both the visuals and audio are beautiful. The menu for each disc is simple and easy to navigate. In the department of Extras, this set has the coolest special features of any DVD I've ever seen: music videos for the image songs for most of the major characters! Pioneer has outdone themselves this time around!

But moving along to content, this is the second season of the shoujo anime Fushigi Yugi. Keeping the spirit of the first season, this one is slightly darker, bringing about the sadder and more touching parts of the show. To keep from spoiling any surprises (and believe me, there are plenty)I won't say anymore. Just a suggestion for the sentimental: Keep your hankies handy.

5.0 out of 5 stars An overall review of all Fushigi Yugi... July 13, 2006
By Niko
Format:DVD
I will try to write a review of the entire Fushigi Yugi series so that you can have a complete (and overall) picture of this wonderful anime. Therefore, if you don't want to know what happens next then please stop reading the specific section because spoilers will be included all over in the review that is to follow.

Apart from it, I will try to maintain an overall review so that to inform the reader as much as possible without giving too much away.

Fushigi Yugi - The Mysterious Play - (Boxed Set 1, Suzaku)

Two fiends, Miaka and Yui - the typical Japanese high school girls- will come across a book called the `Universe of the four Gods' and will be drawn into it (SPOILER! The book basically presents itself to be something like a gate to a parallel universe with the difference that the gods of this parallel universe are the ones who `choose' whom to allow to enter and why, something that will be implied latter on, in the second box set).

There, the two girls will be confronted with a world that is divided into four kingdoms and resembles Ancient China, but each of the girls will end up in a different kingdom as a priestess of the kingdom's god; and their goal will be to gather the seven `holy' warriors in order to summon the god. The catch: the girls will be enemies. On top of that, Miaka will deeply fall in love with one of her warriors, Tamahome, who will love her deeply as well but: Yui will want him two; the emperor will love Miaka etc.

The first arc, deals more with the story and character development, the viewer learns a lot about the world/kingdoms, the citizens agony etc. Of course all this will be accompanied with a lot of action as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Sagas ever! September 23, 2000
Format:DVD
No one who owns the Fushigi Yugi Suzaku Box Set will want to be without this set!
This DVD contains the second season of one of the best tales ever!
In the second season, we see a lot of questions answered as well as meet the entire Seriyu Seven.
There are also tons and tons of surprise twists to the plotline.
I would write more, but I don't want to spoil the series for anyone. I had no clue as to what was going to happen throughout the series until I saw it from episode 1 to episode 52 and I'm glad no one ruined it for me.
You will not be disappointed if you buy this set. I would recommend preordering it TODAY to get your copy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shove it up The Butts of Critics March 14, 2003
Format:DVD
...This is the best anime series I have ever seen. The first season of the show or the Suzaku box set was very light-weight compared to the Seiryu box set (second season). The first disk of the Seiryu set has the best episodes of the entire series. Thankfully, they included Nuriko as the center character of the series at this point in the show. He is my favorite of all of the characters, you can say I am mildly obsessed with him. He truly is Miaka's best friend out the the Celestial Seven. He is there for Miaka when Tamahome visits his family, and is there to comfort Miaka and her heart break. He opens up to Miaka and Tamahome, the only two who truly know who he is, and why. For those who've seen the show, he's a transvestite, who loves Hotohori, but there's a very interesting twist in the first disk of the second series that is left to interpereation. He also is there to counsel both Miaka and Tamahome yet again when their future is at a cross-roads. Unfortunately, for those who've seen it, we know what happens, and from personal experience, it's the hardest disk to watch, because of the inevitible scene. I cry EVERY SINGLE TIME I WATCH that episode! It's so heart breaking, you just ask "why does it have to happen?"
As for the rest of the second season, it's fantastic, better than the first, and that's saying a lot, because it's such a magnificent series, all around. There is far more character interaction, and we discover more about the Suzaku Seven as the series progresses. The undeniable love that the characters have for one another is incredbily touching. Nothing can shake the bond between the characters, not even death. The Seiryu set is far more dramatic and gut-renching than the first.
