Easily the most famous of Creator/YuuWatase's works, ''Fushigi Yuugi'' (sometimes known as ''Mysterious Play'', which the English-dubbed version was released as in North America) was many anime fans' introduction to shoujo series after ''Franchise/SailorMoon''. It was popular enough to have spawned a prequel, ''Manga/FushigiYuugiGenbuKaiden'', which finished publication in Japan in February 2013 and is being released in the US by Viz Media, who also published the English version of the original manga. It has also received a PS2/DS game called ''Fushigi Yuugi Suzaku Ibun''. A second prequel, ''Manga/FushigiYuugiByakkoIbun'', is slated to begin its self-contained run in February 2015.

* FlowersOfRomance: Soi and Nakago are having sex, and flowers [[SceneryCensor are shown in front of them]]. Ironically, although Soi loves Nakago, it's debatable how he feels about her, and they're sleeping together because Soi has sexual healing powers.

** Also done by Miaka in the anime, at one point when she's forced to remove her clothes. Upon being left in a non-transparent negligee (no underwear or midriff area visible), she remarks "This is as far as the broadcast restrictions will allow..."

* CostumePorn: Say what you will about the story and the characters, if there's one thing that fans of ''FushigiYuugi'' agree on it's that the outfits worn by the holy warriors of each country in the ''The Universe of the Four Gods'' are very nicely drawn.

* YouLookFamiliar: Hotohori's wife Houki is the spitting image of [[spoiler: Nuriko]], to the point that the heroes scream and freak out when they see her. Sort of ironic [[spoiler: considering Hotohori had spent most of the series apparently madly in love with ''Miaka''.]]

* NamesToKnowInAnime: For starters, we have Creator/HikaruMidorikawa [as Tamahome, [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded by the man himself that he's]] PlayingAgainstType], Creator/TakehitoKoyasu [as Hotohori], Creator/NobutoshiCanna [as Tasuki] and Creator/TomokazuSeki [as Chichiri].
** Creator/KaeAraki (as Miaka) should count too -- she's done voices in a good-sized list of other anime.

* {{Expy}}: Yui is where the characteristics for [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts Riku]] came from like best friend of the main character, [[spoiler:pulling a FaceHeelTurn just to get a desired person, having a belief that a best friend ditched her/him for someone new. They even refuse to believe anything that the best friend say including the consequences of using the dark power until she/he sees it for herself/himself, cueing a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment, pulling a HeelFaceTurn near the end at the cost of being [[HijackedByGanon taken over by the evil entity]], and have something as a reminder of their actions to become TheAtoner. They also have longer hair in the sequel series]].

* KarmaHoudini: A large part of the problem with [[spoiler: Nakago]] is that his [[FreudianExcuse Freudian excuse]] was only mentioned once, in the last episode of the first series. This made his eventual fate feel tacked on and vaguely insulting to a lot of viewers. It's ''slightly'' more foreshadowed in the manga, but the couple of hints there are so vague that readers would have to be actively looking for them.
** This happened again with [[spoiler:Mayo in ''Eikoden'', which ended with everybody '''''thanking her''''' for deciding to resuscitate the dog she'd shot]].
