"Best Anime Of The Century and Year's To Come. An Unforgetful Story"
27 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

First of all for those people who thinks the animation is poor,dang!!! look at the year it's already a decade. Well forget about those flaw, instead just focus on the story...And also for those who think's that the story has no originality their just hater, (DoughNut haters) well for their FYI, as far as I am born It's my first time to watched this kind of plot. For sure that if this anime has been given a chance to be viewed by you people, I guaranteed that this is not a waste of time and money. So please for those DoughNut Haters just go back to your anime.... cause this is not for you!!!

Fushigi Yugi deserves an audience who will appreciate a good story with slice of life and funny humor. It's an incantation, whoever watched this will going to be stuck watching it until the conclusion ends..... It has good humor... Oh for goodness sake just watch it and you'll see what the heck I'm blubbering about....

All in all it is really a great anime that deserves more praise that you can think of. In my opinion I think that it ranks with those top anime like Fullmetal Alchemist etc.

For those critics who says that English dub is really bad I only have one thing to say...Give it a chance because it's not that bad. I prefer the English dub than the sub.

OK guys watch it!!! I like it... really!
