The rebel priest. The hyperactive monkey king. The carousing, womanizing half-breed. The cool, calm collected demon and his pet dragon. They're all back for their most exciting adventure yet!
The Sanzo party has always been haunted by the past. And they've always been able to deal with their ghosts. But when they enter the House Of Dougan, they may have met their match. Lured to the mysterious shrine by a beautiful girl, Sanzo, Goku, Gojyo, and Hakkai become ensnared in a trap of dangerous shikigami, murderous doppelgangers, and a malevolent monster who has destroyed his own soul for a demented purpose. Don't miss this stunningly animated full-length motion picture, starring the coolest cast of demon hunters in the history of anime!

A DVD-only release including a 95-minute feature presented in English 5.1 and Japanese 5.1 with English subtitles. Extras include: character profiles and art gallery, interview with creator Kazuya Minekura, Japanese promos and TV spots, voice actor commentary with the men of Saiyuki, reversible cover, fold-out poster insert and ADV previews.
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...
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.Read more ›
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.
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.
