Editorial Reviews

The road west is marred by the potholes from their past. Sanzo was an orphan baby, set adrift on the river until he was taken in by Buddhist monks. Growing up in a Catholic orphanage was enough to give Hakkai some issues with gods.

The road west is marred by the potholes from their past. Sanzo was an orphan baby, set adrift on the river until he was taken in by Buddhist monks. Growing up in a Catholic orphanage was enough to give Hakkai some issues with gods. When Gojyo becomes trapped in a cave with Dokugakuji, the brothers reminisce about a stepmother's resentment for her half-breed child. But it may very well be the burdens of youth are what molded Goku, Gojyo, Sanzo and Hakkai into the only men who could undertake this journey!

It's quite a pleasure getting back to this series after a long break. A modern fable based loosely on an old Chinese story, Saiyuki follows four men - the priest Sanzo, the demons Gojyo and Hakkia, and Goku, a reincarnation of the monkey god. They are on a quest into the west to track down some sacred scriptures before they are used to resurrect an evil god.

What makes the story unique is that this great story arc isn't really the focus of the series. Instead is the relationships of the men and their internal stories, even as they go from one picaresque tail to another. I like to think of this as part Chinese legend, and part Don Quixote - an adept mixture of adventure, humor, and human nature.

This set opens when one of their enemies, young Lord Koukaiji unleashes a great dragon, not at the four travelers, but at another group of opponents, a group of gods who have descented from heaven for purposes not entirely clear. Sano wanders into the middle of what has become a tragic and deadly conflict, and it is up to the monk and his companions to save their enemies in an ironic twist of fate.

The two central stories are pure human interest. In the first, Gojyo becomes trapped in a cave only to find that his older brother and sometimes opponent has been caught as well. A servant of Homura, one of the gods from the first story has decided to redeem himself by killing the two. To solve the problem they must look past their current disagreements.

The second of these episodes brings up into the past of Hakkai as he returns to the orphanage where he was raised as a child. He meets with a nun who was a close childhood friend, and he finds himself trying to help a bitter young boy who is the image of what he was. To save a village he must save the child.
