1a. Feature: FUSHIGI YuGI, VOL. 3: DISCIPLE



The hit shojo (girls') manga continues! When best friends Miaka

and Yui open an ancient Chinese book, they find themselves

transported into the Universe of the Four Gods, a parallel world

strangely like ancient China. When Miaka is heralded as the

legendary Priestess of the god Suzaku, she must gather the

seven Celestial Warriors-dashing mercenary Tamahome,

emperor Hotohori, petulant empress-candidate Nuriko, and

others-to summon the power of the Suzaku, fulfill her wish, and

find her true love.
