About the Author

A manga artist for nearly 20 years, Watase's debut came in 1989 at the age of 18 when her short story PAJAMA DE OJAMA (An Intrusion in Pajamas) appeared in the monthly Shôjo Comic manga anthology. Since then she has written and drawn some 50 volumes worth of different short stories and long-running manga series, including the fantastically popular FUSHIGI YÛGI, also available in English from VIZ. Her works have provided the basis for two television series, an OVA series, anime soundtrack CDs, and a string of novels.

I love Fushigi Yugi and this VizBig edition is brilliant. The cover is sturdy the paper in the inside is way better than the regular manga paper and since it's bigger you can better see Yuu Watase's artwork which is amazing and the binding is good also. This covers the 1st three volumes and even though it's 572 pages it goes by quickly. A great deal from Viz for a low price.

I think everyone has probably already covered the actual story told in this collection, so I'm focusing a bit on the actual product/concept behind VizBig releases.

While collecting new series one volume at a time is really thrilling, for series that hold a lot of nostalgia or are already completed, I think the VizBig editions really are the best. It's a lot easier to collect entire series all at once (and cheaper as a whole), as well as just generally having a better quality of product. This is the fourth series I have purchased in VizBig format, and I have yet to be disappointed.

In the case of the Fushigi Yugi VizBig releases, they all have gold foiled logos on the cover and spine. The books are also sturdier overall than single volumes, and have the added bonus of colour insert/artwork at the end of each book. In the first volume, this includes a colour version of the first page of chapter one in the original Japanese.

The translation has also taken a different direction with VizBig than in previous releases of this series. The three-volume book utilises a glossary of sound effect translations in the back. In the past, the sound effects would have been edited out and replaced with the equivalent English onomatopoeia taking their place. Since this can be disruptive to the flow of artwork, I actually prefer the glossary method. There's also a pronunciation guide for Chinese-to-Japanese names

Let me start by saying that the manga itself, is amazing. The seller I bought this from, not so much. (Hence the three stars instead of five) My shipment of two books arrived on the last day of the shipping timeline. (Mainly because is sat in a FedEx location in Arizona for four days, during the week) The seller had this product listed as new, (The seller being "jersey shore books") and my copy certainly wasn't new. The top of the spine is starting to crack and fray, There are scratches all over the front cover, The back top corner had been bent completely as if someone folded it and attempted to smooth it out, Half of the pages were slightly dog eared, and there were black spots all over the front and back covers. I ordered from the seller because they were selling a "new" copy that qualified for super saver for a little over $9, which I thought was an awesome deal, and it is, but when you have a book labeled as new, I expect it to be new. Spend the extra $4ish dollars to get it directly from an amazon warehouse instead of this seller. $13 something dollars for this book is still a pretty good deal to me, and I'm wishing I would have went that route instead.
That aside, definitely an awesome manga. I highly reccomend.

UPDATE January 11, 2014: After many back-and-forths with the publisher, Viz, and Amazon, I'm happy to report that ALL volumes of Fushigi Yugi VIZBIG editions are now fixed. Though it took a while to resolve, both sides were working diligently towards a solution. As of now all of Volumes 1-6 have the correct content. Finally I am able to read this classic manga!

HOWEVER, if you had already purchased a copy, you may still have a defective copy in your account. This may also be true if you purchased a copy, got a refund and then repurchased later. In this case you will need to get the book updated in your account.

The suggested way to do this is to turn on Automatic Book Update on your Manage Your Kindle page ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/digital/fiona/manage?ie=UTF8&ref_=sa_menu_myk&signInRedirect=1&#versionUpdate )and then check for updates on your device. If that doesn't work, delete the book and try to download a new copy.

If you still don't get a good copy, then contact Kindle Support with your order number and request that they send you the updated version of the book. This is what I had to do and within a couple of hours they had sent a new and correct copy.

I love this manga and looked forward to receiving the omnibus, but I noticed the pages were a different material than the original volumes. Several pages had not been cut completely and I had to tear apart the bad perforation. The first time I came across this (there were several pairs of pages attached to each other), the pages tore, which was disappointing. Other than that I enjoyed the book and will continue purchasing the rest of the series in this format.

I'm happily trying to recollect all of these manga, because this was the greatest story ever told. It has everything: romance, love triangles, action, adventure, fantasy, magic, mystical creatures, comedy, tragedy, the works! This is the series that got me hooked on manga, and I will never forget it
