5.0 out of 5 stars "Things that don't change are so boring." February 19, 2005
Format:DVD
As is often the case when a series is shifted to DVD, this set contains an odd mix of story lines, although there is overlap. The most important thread is the relationship between the priest Sanzo and little Goku, the Monkey God. Their story, which dates back to Sanzo's original freeing of Goku from 500 years of imprisonment, is a stormy one. One in which Sanzo, peace loving and mildly egotistical must come to grips with Goku, who is deeply attached to Sanzo, but is the cause of much of the chaos that upsets Sanzo.

Such is the case in the first episode, in which we find Sanzo deeply depressed, apparently due to a long period of rain. While Sanzo retreats deeper within himself, Goku's reaction to the rain is fidgets and worry over the priest's state of mind. Finally they clash, and Goku, feeling unwanted and left out runs away directly into the hands of Lord Homura's minions. Gojyo and Hakkai to the rescue, of course.

Then the scene shifts completely in the next two episodes which take place in Heaven 500 years in the past. Sanjo appears as Lord konzen, and with little work the viewer will sport Gojyo and Hakkai as well. Goku is present as himself, once again recently rescued and brought to the palace by Konzen. What we are going to learn in these episodes is a great deal of the story behind the story - who the four companions really are, and some insight into the reasons behind both Homura's invasion of the mundane world and the conflict with the descendents of Gyumaoh who was slain by the war god Nataku who had become Goku's only friend.

The final episode switches back to the present, with our adventurers preparing to celebrate 'god' day in a rural village.

5.0 out of 5 stars SAIYUKI RULES! October 15, 2004
Format:DVD
In the words of the Merciful Goddess, "Things that don't change are so lame," which is why eternal bliss could get a little boring. But 500 years ago, the Sanzo Party's alter egos were just the imperfection heaven needed to liven up the place. Trouble starts when an upper level bureaucrat named Konzen takes in a heretic monkey, whose curiosity is not always so welcome inside the pearly gates. Fortunately, Field Marshal Tenpou and General Kenren have rebellious streaks of their own. So at least one thing's for sure: eternity will never be the same!
