Nuriko! I actually thought it was a pretty well-done death - at least, I cried when it happened. It's really the following demises in Fushigi Yuugi that I thought were utterly lame and unnecessary. In the end, I didn't even care when Hotohori died, which is really something, because he was my favorite character in that dreck of a show.
