Fushigi Yugi: Hotohori, The Swordsman (Hydra)

I was browsing channels on our TV when I saw a familiar anime show being aired. It's my all-time favorite manga animation "Fushigi Yugi". It's been almost 8 years when I saw it on Philippine televison, that was on GMA 7. I'm glad that TV5 (former ABC 5) re-aired this beautiful ang touching story of a girl, Miaka Yuuki, an average middle school student caught up in studying for exams, who was sucked into an ancient Chinese novel titled "The Universe of Four Gods". There she discovers that she is in an ancient country in what is now China, Konan, and is to be the Priestess of one of the four gods, Suzaku. As the priestess, her duty is to gather the Seven Seishi of Suzaku, who are to be her protectors. Once they are gathered, the priestess will summon the god Suzaku and bring peace between the warring lands, Konan and Kutou. But it's harder than it seems. Along the road, many hardships are faced, as Miaka's best friend Yui Hongo enters the book and becomes her rival, the priestess of Seiryuu in the land of Kutou. Who summons their god first is up to the courage and skill of the priestesses and their seishi, as they meet triumphs and tragedies along the way.

I love all of the Seven Seishi of Suzaku but I love Hotohori most. Hotohori is definitely the most gorgeous anime man I have ever seen! Hotohori is the Emperor of Konan country, he ascended to the throne at a very young age (fourteen), and since then has had to mature quickly. He is a very serious young man, gentle, kind, and good to the people he rules over. Saddled with the affairs of a whole country early in life, Emperor Saihitei grew up lonely among advisors and ambassadors, it was at this time that he learned of the legend of Suzaku No Miko. It was written in the legend that a symbol would appear on the neck of the crown prince and that a girl would appear from another world to save the country in its time of need, and that the prince would be one of her protectors. A young Hotohori embraced this legend hoping that the miko would be the one to end his loneliness. When Miaka arrived, Emperor Saihitei instantly vied for her love, so much so, that he threatened an also-enamoured Tamahome. Hotohori eventually learned to control his feelings and to accept the true love formed between Miaka and Tamahome.
