Fushigi Yuugi OVA [OVA]

Fushigi Yuugi OVA
Plot Summary

This OAV (original animation video) adventure brings back all the characters from the sprawling broadcast series—even ones who were killed. When Miaka, Tomahome (who now lives in the real world), Keisuke, and Tetsuya go visit the grave of Takikio, the one-time priestess of Genbu, Tomahome mysteriously vanishes back into Universe of the Four Gods. Miaka and Yui join him there, causing the Warriors of Suzaku and Seiryu to reassemble. Their reappearance has been arranged by Tenkuo, the former master of the evil Nagako, who hopes to rule the alternate world.

When Tomahome arrived in Konan in episode 1, 50 years had passed since the battle at the end of the broadcast series, and Hotohori’s grandson was emperor. When Tomahome and Miaka visit Konan in episode 5, only two years have elapsed and Hotohori’s infant son occupies the throne. However, these inconsistencies are not likely to trouble fans of this mawkish magical-girl series.
