Podcast: Fushigi Yugi Watchalong – Episodes 21-27

One last celebration before we hit the rocky trail.

Three people at a festival. In the foreground is a grinning redheaded man; slightly behind him, standing next to each other, are a girl holding a lollipop and a person extending one arm as if gesturing for the other two to follow them. All three are in period Chinese clothing and are smiling.

Part 4 of the Fushigi Yugi watchalong with Caitlin, Vrai, and yours truly! In another strong week, the ensemble cast shines and even the romantic beats land… but there are storm clouds on the horizon, and we ain’t just talking about Soi’s lightning powers. Highlights include: Unintentional ace power fantasies, the fine line between emotional resonance and emotional manipulation, and Chichiri giving me a lot of feelings. Buckle up, homies.

Podcast: Fushigi Yugi Watchalong – Episodes 15-20

Two monster movies, a spy caper, and an action-packed throwdown? It’s fun for the whole family!

Three chibi figures are piled awkwardly atop each other in a tree: On top is a man with flyaway bangs and smiling eyes wearing a tunic; below him is a girl with her hair in two buns, teeth gritted and eyes squinted; and at the bottom of the pile is a redhead in a dark jacket, looking below him with a wide-mouthed look of shock

Part 3 of the Fushigi Yugi watchalong with Caitlin, Vrai and me! We recorded this one late on a weekday evening, so if you listen closely you can hear the sleeplessness slowly consume us! It’s another fun batch episodes as Miaka wraps up her road trip and my favorite duo takes their comedy show on the road. Highlights include: Resurrected ‘shipping wars, a new tag line for the DVD box sets (you’re welcome, Discotek), and Tasuki being a very good boy.
