Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden is Yuu Watase's latest work for the FY Universe. It tells the story of Takiko Okuda, the first priestess to appear in the Universe of the Four Gods.
Seventeen-year-old Takiko lives in Morioka, Japan with her dying mother. While tuberculosis mark's her mother's life in borrowed days, Takiko's father is away in China. He is researching a mysterious book and Takiko resents his absense. When he returns, Takiko seizes the book. A silver light envelopes her and she is drawn into the Universe of the Four Gods. She lands in the northern province of Hokkan, where the ruling deity, Genbu, is hated and reviled.
Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden is a dark prequel to Fushigi Yuugi. There is little light or warmth for the girl who begins the legend.
The Genbu Kaiden Shrine...The final manga chapter for Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden came out in May 2013. There is no anime yet for the series. You can read the entire series here, but don't forget to purchase the released tankoubon and show your support!
The Genbu Kaiden Shrine (formerly Genbukaiden.com) was reborn on May 18, 2014. Version 6.0 features characters from the original Fushigi Yuugi as well as ones from Genbu Kaiden. Navigation is on the right.
6.11.17: Rargh. I was holding off updating The GK Shrine's subpages until I figured out how to make the navigation bar scroll all the way to the bottom to match the main content section, but alas, it eludes me. Opting for a motion-blurred bottom in defeat, I went through and revised the entire site. Let me know if I missed any pages. - Discord
6.06.17: Summer is almost here! Hooray! On my big 'leaving iframes kick', I gave the GK Shrine a new layout. Version 7.0 features kickass coding from yours truly (plus lots of CSS forum help), and an image of Urukui and Takiko from Chapter 35. It looks best on larger resolutions, but can hobble along on mobile devices. Please be patient as I change subpages over to the new CSS, School's almost over (I used to say that when I was a student, now I do it as a teacher =P), so expect more updates soon! - Discord
10.26.16: I made a few Inami icons and gave her and Hatsui their own icon pages in the graphics archive. - Discord
10.25.16: My husband and I are now home-owners! Hooray! Our summer was full of paperwork and moving, but I never forgot this shrine =). Tonight I fixed my buggy visitor counter and added new 100x100 icons for GK's support characters (Anru and Hatsui). - Discord
3.01.16: Another character profile is up along with three new memorable moments from chapters 25, 26, and 27. Go check them out! - Discord
2.29.16: Happy Leap Day! Sorry for the long lapse in updates - I've been focused on fanfiction for the last year (and most of it Inu-Yasha). Today I added two new character profiles to the information section and revised the first part of chapter one for Ancestors (a very old Takiko/Uruki fic). - Discord
