Hi all,

Fushigi Yuugi was dethroned recently as my favorite series ever (live action or animated) by a certin anime that has a small but loyal following called Princess Nine.

How many of you have seen this really good shoujo anime?

It has a love triangle and the best writing since the origional Miracle on 34th Street. Very character driven and characters you can care about.

It's a baseball anime about an all girls school forming a baseball team tomcompete with the boys teams to go to the championship along the ways the characters are given some very big obsticals to over come and conflict within the team.

It even has the handkecheif plot from Othello... just modified a bit.

This series is really good and last I looked the DVDs were like 13 bucks each at bestprices.com with free shipping.

It is 26 episodes with 6 DVDs and has a flawless English dub where I can't think of a bad preformance.

Excellent music and very dramatic.

Anyone watch this yet?

FRom,
Joe

I thought the series was a pretty good one myself. However, the ending was very interesting.

Yup! Princess Nine is one of my favorite anime series. Good story, great music, and characters you really care about. The only thing that would make it better is if there were a second season! ;)

well, with the way that the series ended, and with the continuity of the plot, They left plenty of room for a second and possibly a third season. (remember Keiko's original plan)

I'm glad to see I'm not the only fan of this series here on these boards.

I was chatting with Matt Greenfield at Ani-Magic and he said that ADV has no plans for a 2nd season. I forgot to ask if ADV will release the Drama CD to Princess Nine. I hope they do.

FRom,

Yah it's such a great little series. Very "soap opera" ish in my opinion.

I'm hoping to have Hiroki costume sometime next year. *Maybe* for Anime North...

Hey Ziggy - Did you make that Hiroki costume yet? I'm thinking of cross-playing Mao.

Has anyone else seen this series?

YAY! Another fan!

Okay everyone who was your favorite character from the seires?

I absolutly adored Izumi... I know she was a bitch but she was also a realist in most cases. I think that she brought out the best in everyone because of her high standards.

I so want a 2nd and 3rd season of this show.

I loved the bickering between Yoko and Seira. I think that they really like eachother under those tough exteriors.

Joe

Yay for Princess Nine!

It makes me smile. And feel warm and fuzzy inside. I've seen all but the last DVD . . . which I want to see soon.

Favorite character? Probably Hiroki. Ganmo-chan is a priceless nickname.

My fave was Ryo Hayakawa, and Yuki Izuma

I found it cute how Hiroki teased Ryo. ^_^
