An anime version of the famous chinese novel "Journey to the West" (AKA "Monkey King") with a big twist! Created by Minekura Kazuya, Saiyuki
is about four guys- a monk with a gun, a sexy perverted kappa, an 18 year old kid with a bottomless stomach, and a human turned demon with the most sweetest smile, travelling to the west to place called Tenjiku, to stop the revival test of Gyumao, performed by his crazy wife, in order to conquer the world. During their journeys, they encounter demons, gods, assasins and worst of all, their past.
Not to forget their daily routine of Gojyo and Goku
picking girls, the guys drinking sake
and play mahjoong and kicking demons butt!
It's a mix of humour, action, bloodspill, couple of bad words(not really), some scenes of yaoi
(it's not, but some fans say it is!) but nonetheless, it's a great anime
and it's really addicting!
"he took me out of the darkness and showed a world brighter than the sun"
You can't stop after you start watching Saiyuki. It's something that grows on you. Same goes to other animes. They are really addicting and that makes you wanna watch more!
