Fushigi Yuugi is actually surprisingly mature in some respects. The characters, unfortunately, are playing catch with an “Idiot Ball.” That is to say, they are fairly normal in mental capacity most of the time, until the plot requires them to make an insanely stupid decision. Whereupon the character in the spotlight catches the Idiot Ball, and proceeds to act like an idiot until some other character is getting too close to plot-wrecking rationality – at which point the ball is thrown and caught.
