Although billed as "The Motion Picture," Saiyuki: Requiem (2001) is actually an OAV that continues the popular broadcast series. Sanjo Genzo and his motley crew, Sha Goyjo, Cho Hakkai, and Son Goku, are once again en route to India when they meet Horan, a young woman fleeing a monster that proves unusually difficult to kill. To thank them for her rescue, Horan invites the quartet back to the extravagant palace of her "master," Go Dogan. After a sumptuous dinner that delights Goku, the wanders retire to their rooms, where they're visited by murderous doppelgangers of each other. Naturally, Sanjo discovers the source of the evil and dispatches Dogan with a little assistance from his companions. The story contains few surprises, but the four adventurers provide the special brand of quarrelsome cool that won the series so many fans. (Rated 15 and older: nudity, violence, grotesque imagery, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars The last of a great thing. February 8, 2005
This direct to video movie is a great addition to the original Saiyuki series (now being repackaged as the Double Barrel collection). It has all the great spirit, artwork, and attitude of these 4 guys we love to watch...If you enjoyed the 50 episode series, you'll enjoy this stand alone movie.

And for those who enjoy the english dubbed version (which happens to fit the characters and spirit of the Japanese version remarkably well), this is your last opportunity to hear the Sanzo party as we know them. The next Saiyuki series, Reload, has been released by a different company so none of the english voice actors will be the same! I'm trembling in fear at the thought of who will replace the voices we know and love...

4.0 out of 5 stars THE DEMON SLAYERS ARE BACK IN ACTION! August 13, 2008
The adventure continues for Genjo Sanzo and his three demon compatriates.

Based on the manga series by Minekura Kazuya, "Gensou Maden Saiyuki" was a popular animated TV series back in 2001 that spawned over 50 episodes and a second series in 2004 titled "Saiyuki RELOAD".

The series is based loosely on an real ancient story of an arrogant, rebel Bhuddist priest named Genjo Sanzo who's mission is to travel from China to India.

Traveling with him is Cho Hakkai (a man who took revenge on a demon clan for the abduction and death of his beloved one and after his 1,000 demon slaughter and their splashed blood on him has transformed him to a demon); Sha Gojou, a person seen as a taboo (child of a demon and human parents which are considered a taboo in society); and a monkey (who looks more human than monkey), Son Goku.

Each four have talents and through their travel towards India run into many battles with demons.

In "Saiyuki Requiem", this is a film that debuted in Japan in 2001. The story takes place after the group saves a woman from a demon. In gratitude, she leads them to a large palace but immediately Sanzo knows something is wrong.

It appears that things are not as it seems in the palace and what looks real may not be real at all.

It appears that a man named Dougan has been waiting for the Sanzo team but why?

Although I haven't followed the "Saiyuki" animation, I found the characters of the animation very intriguing. It reminded me a bit of the popular "Guilty Gear" fighting video game series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Saiyuki Requiem April 13, 2007
By A. Bell
This movie was very good. It continues the feel of the anime. All your favorite characters appear including Kougaiji and his crew.

I do feel that the villian in this movie however was a bit pathetic and they could of done more with him.

Overall though I am satisfied with this movie as I am a fan of the series and adore anything pertaining to Saiyuki.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie...worthwile addition to the collection August 19, 2010
Verified Purchase
Situated between the first and second seasons, this was a good movie.
The voiceovers are the same as those from Season 1, and the story is certainly entertaining enough to warrant the price (though nothing new or earth-shattering is revealed). As with most OVA's it feels simply like a couple of episodes all in one go.

If you like Saiyuki, then this would be worth the money to add to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent June 10, 2010
Verified Purchase
If you're into the Saiyuki series, then Requiem is definitely worth seeing. A lot of times when anime movies get dubbed, they'll get new voice actors, but for Requiem they kept the same cast as before, so it was easy to stomach on that alone. Plot-wise, it was excellent as it integrated elements from the original story so that it was an addition to the series instead of its own little subplot. 10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Every Bit As Good April 18, 2010
Verified Purchase
This movie was every bit as good as the series itself. It still has all the raw emotion of the episodes, packed inside a single movie. We get to see more of their pasts and they meet a new enemy as well. Definitely a must buy for Saiyuki fans!
