Anime DVD Review

If you enjoy Sailor Moon, if you are looking for a story that's going to suck you into it so deeply that you may not leave home until you're done watching, if you want to see the interactions of characters that will live with you for the rest of your life, then Fushigi Yugi may be for you. Like the "Aha" music video "Take On Me", the characters are drawn into a book (Universe of the Four Gods), and director Hajime Kamegaki uses limited animation to his advantage to place the action as if they were panels in a comic book. Sometimes it is more like watching the Manga that this DVD set originated from.

Purple hair and cool characters...The DVD set contains the entire first season — all 26 episodes, on four dual-layer DVD discs, and they still have room enough to also include some extras, such as an Image Gallery, Character Information, and provide dual-language capability. This excellent Shoujo anime series really combines the best features of Sailormoon and Card Captor Sakura. And when you're done crying your eyes out over how wonderful it all is, make sure to grab season two!
