    Great for old fans, new fans may want to check out the manga!
    For those who just want specs:
    Music: Really dang good
    Animation: Leaves something to be desired, but I'll go into details below
    Nostalgia: 10/10

    Now for a full review.

    Saiyuki is a 20 year old series. Don't base your impressions 100% on this first episode. To REALLY enjoy this series, I would recommend diving into the manga. There's 19 volumes so there's a lot of awesome content to read ...

    May not be great, but good for an old fan
    The first episode may confuse new audience since it doesn't provide much information about the series as a whole or what happened before. But as a fan of Saiyuki for almost 20 years, it's still good to see the anime back.
    It's a pity that some details from the manga may be missing, but I guess this is hard to avoid considering the length of each episode and the series as a whole. Considering ...

    New to this series **
    I wanted to make a comment about the artistry for this anime since many people are complaining that it isn't very good. My thought about it was that, it must be an old series and they want to pay homage to the original work. They must want to respect viewers of the original series. I was not bothered by the artwork at all. I also was not bothered by not being fully introduced to the characters ...

    Must be smoking crack
    I'm convinced that people are either smoking crack or have an agenda, because this is like that rare gem you find on Netflix.
    Wasn’t aware that its a 20 year old anime but it doesn’t matter in the least or that it doesn’t explain everything to you from the get-go… If every anime did that then it would be pretty repetitive. I don’t mind a little mystery or things to slowly unfold. What matters ...

    Exactly what I wanted
    I've been crying for Saiyuki to continue every day for the ten+ years it's been gone so thank the lord it's back. It has all the same comedy and action as the older entries and I'm interested to see how close to the manga it stays. 10/10 keep going west Sanzo Party

  • So glad it introduced me to the series
    This is the kind of series I look for. Great character depth and story depth. Good mix of action, comedy, and more personal and philosophical moments. Visually gorgeous. I have gone back to watch all previous series and bought the manga. The only thing I regret is not having known anything about Saiyuki before.

  • Good anime but didn't see the previous season
    Saiyuuki Reload Blast is the latest season of the Saiyuuki Reload series and in it the westward journey of the four main characters continue. As someone who decided to watch this even without checking out the previous seasons beforehand, I thought the anime was good overall.I thought the story was simple enough so that even a newcomer wouldn't feel too lost. I also appreciate the fact that some ...

  • EXCELLENT!! I would recommend
    The mix of modern and olden day. Beautiful animation. Action. Comedy. I Highly Recommend! I hope it continues! There are power. Many characters. The suspense from each episode kept me going. The flash backs were not extremely boring, for it gave some insight as to what was going to happen next and allow the viewer to understand what was going to happen.

  • Now THAT's a Surprise...
    I'm really enjoying this show. Took me a while to get hooked, but now I'm dying to know more about the backstory and see where it goes (guess that means I'll be checking out the manga). The artwork is throwback style, but it's really well done. Music is great, and the premise is good.

    After Ep. 8, my only concern is that we end up with a 12-13 episode season and never really learn more about ...
