I was first introduced to Nuriko a few years ago back when searching for songs performed by Sakamoto Chika-san, Kanda Akemi-san, Shindou Naomi-san and Neya Michiko-san (women seiyuu in Crush Gear Turbo)...however, back then I had little interest in Fushigi Yuugi...now I am collecting the manga and will soon get some DVD boxsets.
I have seen some really funny scenes, the onsen omake and the last few minutes of episode 33 which managed to bring me to tears...in fact, I can't listen to Kaze no Uta without crying anymore now that I know what episode it was played as the ED theme...doesn't mean it's not my fave.
I am impressed with Nuriko and how he always has the right sense of style when it comes to the way he dresses, he could maybe give me some tips. ^^
Anyway, I've said quite a lot here, so I'm going to be quiet now. I hope we can all become friends. ^^
PS-Fitting I'm listening to a song performed by Minagawa Junko-san who voiced Nuriko in Suzaku Ibun
