Welcome to Worlds Beyond, a Fushigi Yuugi blog. Here you can find the latest updates in the world of Fushigi Yuugi.

Fushigi Yuugi Stage Play?!

I'm not sure how this one slipped past my radar at the end of July. I blame being so busy at work (I mean, this is the first activity I've had on the Otaku in about 2 1/2 months.... ^^;

Anyway, there is a stage play set to run in October based on the Original Fushigi Yuugi series! There is not much more information on it that I can find, but you can get some more details from this news post by Anime News Network:

Fushigi Yûgi Manga Gets Stage Play Green-Lit

You can also check out the original article found on the Flowers section of Shogakukan here:

Genbu Kaiden Chapter 32 Scans

This website here has Chapter 32 Scans!! Thanks for the tip~!

Just a note, these scans are on a Chinese forum and are in Chinese, not Japanese or English.

Genbu Kaiden Resumes!

Okay, so I'm a little late in posting this here. I've known for some time, though...

Genbu Kaiden will resume in Rinka's next issue, which is in TWO days! The next issue will be released on June 14, 2010 and with it continue on from that killer cliffhanger we were left with so long ago!

So I'm sure that the handful (if that??) of people who even bother with this little blog of mine probably already have known this as well, but just in case~!

Anyhow, I'm excited~!


Update, please?

What's this? After being inactive for so long there is an update?? Well for the couple of you who actually watch this blog, don't get too excited. There still aren't any updates for Fushigi Yuugi that I'm aware of(although I have been so super busy with school and work that It's quite possible I've missed something). I'm pretty sure there hasn't been a date released for the continuance of Genbu Kaiden, but I'm still thinking we can hope for this spring possibly.

I'm a little late in mentioning this one (by about 5 months) but there is a DS port of the two Fushigi Yuugi PS2 games, Kagami no Miko and Suzaku Ibun (Japan only). I haven't gotten hold of this version so I don't know if there are any differences between these and the PS2 releases.

Anyway, for those of you who follow Watase's other manga, I hope you have been following Arata Kangatari. It's getting really good! What am I saying...? It's BEEN really good. It's just getting even better. =)

If you haven't been following it you can read it here: Arata Kangatari on One Manga. It's being done by PROJECT Kurai Ryu, and I've picked up as editor recently.


This isn't just Fushigi Yuugi related, but for anyone here who might be attending Youmacon next weekend [10/31 - 11/2], I'll be hosting a Watase panel (I would have mentioned this earlier, but they just informed me last night that they were able to add it to the schedule). We'll discuss any of her works that the attendees want, answering questions and such. The panel is scheduled for Saturday [11/1] at 5pm. I really hope to see some of you there! I might even raffle off some of my prints if enough people show up. =D (Unfortunately, I won't be doing my Hotohori cosplay...I don't have the time to do all the repairs and alterations it needs...)
