New Fushigi Yugi Manga One-Shot Coming from Original Author in 2022

Yuu Watase has something special planned for the November 2022 issue of Monthly Flowers

Fushigi Yugi


Fans of Yuu Watase's Fushigi Yugi manga—which ran in its first incarnation in the pages of Shogakukan's Shojo Comic magazine from 1992 to 1996 before returning with Fushigi Yugi: Genbu Kaiden from 2003 to 2013—will soon have more to read. The latest issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Flowers magazine revealed plans to publish a new one-shot by Watase in the November 2022 issue, which hits stands in Japan on September 28, 2022.


The most recent entry in the series—Fushigi Yugi: Byakko Senki—started in Monthly Flowers back in 2017, but Watase's physical health issues led to a hiatus the following year. That hiatus continues, but for now readers will be able to enjoy the final entry in the manga's Four Gods storyline when the new one-shot debuts. 


The January 2022 issue of Monthly Flowers with the news:



Watase's Fushigi Yugi manga was previously adapted into a 52-episode TV anime back that ran from 1995 to 1996, as well as three series of OVAs. You can watch it all here on Crunchyroll, which describes it like so: 


Miaka, a junior high school student in Tokyo, has normal problems: fights with her mom, entrance exams, and deciding where she's going to go eat with her friends. But when she finds a mysterious book in the library, her life is changed forever when she and her best friend are transported inside!
