It’s a wonderful feeling. You’re walking down the street, you stick your hands in your jacket pocket and, while reaching around, you feel some paper. Wondering what it is, you pull your hands out to find that you found money! You know the feeling.

Well, this time it’s still the same feeling. But instead of searching through pockets, its through cr; and instead of finding money, it’s finding an old favorite, like Saiyuki (幻想魔伝 最遊記)!!

If you don’t know what Saiyuki is by now, here’s a “brief” synopsis:
Adapted loosely from the Chinese novel, Journey to the West, written by Xīyóu Jì, the Saiyuki story follows the journey of four unlikely heroes as they travel westward towards India to stop the resurrection of Gyumaoh (牛魔王), the Bull Demon King. Of course, it wouldn’t be a good Japanese anime without a group of motley warriors, each with their own unique – and oftentimes – bizarre characteristics to spice up the story. There is the monk, Genjyo Sanzo, who drinks, smokes and fires a sweet-looking Smith and Wesson, 6-shooter revolver which can banish demons; Son Goku, whose irrational behavior and superhuman strength makes him a liability; Gojyo, the half human, half demon with an attitude, and love for women and gambling; and finally Cho Hakkai, whose modest and quite exterior, fools his opponents before he mercilessly blasts them with his “ki” energy blasts.

But if there's one thing to take away from all of this, is that this series has it all: sorcery, alchemy, technology, ancient and fantasy theme beautifully intertwined, heavy artillery and kick-ass fight sequences! It’s everything you want in anime.

Now, although there are only five episodes on cr, I distinctly remember what happens later on in the series (as any fan should ), and it is goooood. So good, that I had to spell it with an extra three “o’s.” It just gives you a taste of what's to come, and if you don't believe me just watch it and you'll see!! Now, I hate it when people spoil animes for me, so I won’t spoil it for you. But I will say this: you have to watch this series!!

P.S. to shinji and the crew at cr, please put up more episodes!! I’m biting at the bit to watch more!! When will you have more episodes on?

Journey to the West was written by Wu Cheng'en, and the name is Xi You Ji in Chinese (Mando).

Sounds interesting...Checking it out...
(When reviews and intros are written like this, who can NOT check it out? )

Well as for the hosting that's probably going to be a bit problematic seeing how the series is licensed by ADV and only on here since ADV themselves allowed, and uploaded, it. So you may ask Shinji but in the end it all comes down to ADV. Besides memories are always much better since you tend to forget the negative parts.

It would be a great idea to put up Saiyuki in Crunchyroll. So far I've only seen the 1st two seasons of the series and reading this article made me remember that I haven't finished watching it yet. Hopefully the Crunchyroll crew can get into an agreement with the producers of Saiyuki to air the rest of this series for everyone here in CR. Please post up a bulletin for updates because I am really gonna look forward to finishing this "Crunchy!" anime.

I saw the first few episodes when I was 9, then two years later I found the manga while browsing through the bookstore. Remembering their faces, I kept reading and then I found myself through all nine manga volumes. I love Saiyuki, that was the first anime I fell in love with.
