    A gang of Fighters rescue a small town from being overrun by demons.
    It's a decent first episode, although it tends to drop you into the middle of the action without any explanation. The action sequences are simple and could use more animation, and it's a pure action anime. The characters are distinct if not very well developed. It's an anime with potential, they need to up their production value. I do look forward to the next adventure, to see how they fare.

    I don't get it. Why is this single episode so popular?
    Is there some type of language barrier? Most of the dialog was bad, but honestly there were maybe 2-3 good jokes. The only bad ass scene was at the beginning, but the middle to end fighting scenes were just poorly written. The graphics seem annoying and the sound is lacking.

    I think people like this show because of some prior knowledge. I suspect that because I have no idea why or how they ...

    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 ...

    Feels like your out of the loop.
    Feels like I'm out of the loop in this anime. Entire backstory skipped, who they are almost entirely skipped except from a single demon which still doesn't tell us WHO they are. There's just too many plot holes and bad writing to sort out. Not the worst thing in the season though...

    Two words: Dragon Jeep
    Did the mention of a Dragon Jeep excite you? Or make you wonder why anyone would do such a thing? The answer may determine what you think of this anime.
    Nearly 20 years ago, when anime was harder to find, I ran across the original series.

    If you watch this and feel like you missed something, like you are supposed to know who people are, it's because this is a re-introduction to a very old ...

    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 ...

    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
