Well, I talked about it and talked about it, and Im finally doing it, see Alakin! Okay, for those (probably a lrage number of you) not familiar with Fushigi Yuugi (that is, those of you presently saying "Fu-what-y what?!") Fushigi Yuugi is a Japanese Animation loosely translated as Mysterious Play (or Strange Game) in English. It is the story of Yuuki Miaka and her best friend Hongou Yui, who are taken inside a strange book called the Shi Jin Ten Chi Sho (Four Gods' Sky and Earth) I've been Initiating Al into the wonders of this animated series, and as we were watching it, we noticed some pretty close parallels with Star Wars, and thought (I don't remember who first suggested it) that we should put up a discussion topic here. Keeping in mind I haven't shown him the full series yet, and being about halfway through, I say we should start off with the relationship between Miaka and Tamahome. Personally I see lots of parallels there, at least in the very beginning, between the love story of Han and Leia ... especially Tamahome's obsession with money and his willingness to do almost anything for a few extra ryuu... lemme know what you think, and see if you can draw any other parallels! Oh yeah, and I wanna know who your favourite FY character is!
