Podcast: Fushigi Yugi Watchalong – Episodes 41-46

Hope you got your umbrella ready for this plot downpour.

A short-haired girl in a school uniform, looking exasperated, points over her shoulder at a girl with medium-length hair wearing the same uniform. This girl is kneeling on one knee, a mirror clutched to her chest and a rose held out in one hand as if she's trying to woo someone. In the foreground is the back of a man's head.

Part 7 of the Fushigi Yugi watchalong with Caitlin, Vrai, and me! With the badlands safely behind us, we can return to the show’s usual mixed bag of big adventure and even bigger emotions as the series heads into its action-packed home stretch. It’s a wild ride, but a largely entertaining one, with a few dollops of emotional resonance and forced dramatic bullshit on the side. It just wouldn’t be Fushigi Yugi without both, would it?

Highlights include: Geriatric Celestial warriors, various folks meeting various makers (not necessarily their own), and Miaka continuing to be a delightfully thirsty protagonist.
