Fushigi Yuugi ONI
I love Fushigi Yuugi….& of course, i wouldn’t pass up on watching the OVA. As what i keep on saying only FY is the shojo that had made me cry & it’s mainly because of the OVA. I know that OVA’s are not really based from the original story itself, as what the letters stand for,its an adaptation.
Actually i can’t understand why people kept on saying that OVA’s & animes are just merely a shadow of the manga (literally it is!..hehe). I believe that any form of art have their own identity. So even if they were just adapted from manga, they have their own charms…It’s just that… *shrugs shoulder*
Nevertheless, FY OVA had my tears flowing. On the part where Hotohori is able to embrace his own by Tama’s body. It’s just so touching.
The FY OVA is separated in two parts, the Eikoden & Oni.
I’ll go first with the ONI, since this is what made me cry… 😥
oh shoot…i can’t find a nice FY Oni pic…’sumimasen,mina-san’… ;(
The story begins with Miaka & Tamahome in a train & they are on their way to visit Takiko’s grave. Upon reaching it, Tamahome heard someone calling him & when they reached the grave, Tamahome just disappeared. Miaka of course went berserk, & tamahome was sent back to the book. With some twists & turns, tamahome ended up being Nakago. & from then, the adventures began once again…..
What i like about ONI is that Miaka is much mature than in the series, which definitely suits her because of how the series ended, with her being the top notcher student & all. The love betwen the two of them has become mature too, not the type that ‘ill give up the world just to be with you’.
Uh oh…looks like this blog is gonna be long…so i’ll just make another one about FY EIKODEN.
Ok,back to what i was saying….I was clearly touched when Miaka was on her knees crying to Taitskun saying “if this is what i need to do to be an adult, then i don’t wanna be an adult anymore” -or something like that… You can feel that she is really hurting with it, plus the background music which makes this oh so sad… ;(
But then again, being a story about everlasting love, Tamahome is able to find a way to go back to Miaka. He was born to Miaka’s world as Taka so that he will be able to actually exist in her world & not just some character in the book, but he doesn’t have an inkling of his memory as Tamahome whatsoever.
Doesn’t end that way, one evil entity is still out…So miaka & taka was transported to the book once more & this time, they need to find Taka’s memory jewel so that they can form the Suzaku seven again.
Ok,ill not spoil the rest of the story for you,guys….
Overall,i think its a great OVA. Different from the series, but in a way, its still it, not just because of the art….but because of how it was done. I think its actually good. It’s making me watch it over & over…& i never get tired of it (but i don’t watch it everyday!..lol). So, out of all the shojo animes out there, FY is still the number one for me. It has been around since mid-90’s i think, i have watched a couple of other shojos, but nothing beats FY ;D
