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
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=1versionUpdate )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.
That aside, definitely an awesome manga. I highly reccomend.
