Last Saturday a friend and I headed out to Tokyo to catch one of the last Fushigi Yūgi play showings at the Shinagawa Prince Hotel.
With Sailor Moon getting a musical revival (here and here), it was only a matter of time before another girls’ anime got one as well. Fushigi Yūgi brings back so many great memories for me, because it’s how I connected with a group of girls that later became my best friends throughout high school. We would pretend we were priestesses and pass around a priestess notebook that we filled with letters, drawings, and notes to one another during class. It was silly and fun. I still consider one of these girls to be my absolute BFF even to this day.
Here’s a short summary and review of the show, with pamphlet scans, too. 🙂
