The sequel to the hit animated series (based on the popular manga series of the same name by Yu Watasei), Fushigi Yugi (Mysterious play, in English) remains a shojo anime for everyone.
Action, adventure, magic and intrigue await the viewer as they enter one of the most brilliantly conceived universes ever created.The animation is even better and the background art has improved but with anime heavyweights like AIC, Studio Perriot and Studio Ghibli (think Princess Mononoke) providing their skills you would expect no less than the best. The adaption of Ms. Watase's designs are great and the voice actors are so good, you could never image any one else playing their characters.
