Shibuya Yuuri was a typical fifteen-year-old boy until one day, when trying to stop a classmate from being bullied, he is flushed down a toilet! As he opens his eyes, Yuuri finds himself in a strange land. However, having mistaken it for a medieval theme park, he then gets the shock of his life when he is told that not only has he been transported to another world, but he is also their new king: the maoh. Adjusting to Yuuri's new country isn't as easy as it would seem, especially as he manages to accidentally propose to the previous maoh's son on his first night in the castle! Now, the idealistic Yuuri must learn his role as maoh and prove his worth, as well as trying cope with his easily-irritated new fiance.
Both are stories where the main protagonist travels from our world to an alternative one. The alternative worlds have a historical feel to both. Fushigi Yugi is based in fuedal China and Kyo Kara Maoh has a more medieval Europe feel. Also, both main characters have seemingly ordinary until they get transferred to the alternate world where they find themselves the center of attention. Both are harem style mangas, however the romance in Kyo Kara Maoh is minimal.
