    Quote by Hakaru It's seems that the Sanzo Ikkou had fight with Ukoku in the original manga. So whatever happen to Ni Jianyi, why is he reported missing in RB?

    You are correct. Ukoku reported as missing is exactly what's currently happening in the manga. His whereabouts, even as of the most recent chapter, are still unknown.

    At a certain point during the Reload manga, Ni JIanyi (real name Priest Ukoku Sanzo) left Houtou Castle and headed east bound to meet up with another important character (Hazel) as well as take matters into his own hands to a certain degree. A lot of events take place in between, even a temporary split between Sanzo & the other three, but eventually they come back together right at the end when a fight against Ukoku begins.

    The experience is nearly fatal but they survive....barely. Ukoku leaves but not without first receiving a "parting gift" from Sanzo. From here, we don't know where Ukoku went. We only know he returned to Houtou Castle temporarily and returned his sutra back into the Bunny Doll, sealed it up, and left it in the experiments lab (this is the scene you see during episode 2 of the SRB anime).

    So why is the anime so different, especially Reload/Gunlock? The same that happens to most anime adaptations: they catch up with the manga & fillers need to be created. That's why in Gensomadem you have that whole battle against Homura & the God Child arc was instead animated for the Reload anime. As for Hazel, the character was developed by Minekura for the anime originally, but as the character grew on her, Minekura ended up giving him a much longer storyline in her manga. This is why the first episode of the anime Hazel appears in is much more similar to the manga version and certain elements from later Gunlock episodes are nearly the same.

    The same goes for Ni Jianyi/Ukoku: he was originally a much smaller character in the first Saiyuki, but as the story progressed, Minekura grew to like him and gave him much more background, ultimately becoming the main antagonist in the series.

    Sorry for the long wall of text, but I felt that needed deeper explanation. In short, for all of the above, this is why I'm not too critical of the differences between the anime and the manga as it is the anime that has sometimes further inspired events in the manga, contrary to popular belief. There's still the possibility that some material from Reload may be adapted into Reload Blast, just as we've seen before with the "God Child" arc, but only time will tell. I do feel the current anime intends to stick closer to the manga, but again, only time will tell.

    Quote by Hakaru Do you enjoy the anime adoption of saiyuki reload blast?

    I absolutely LOVE IT. As a very long time fan of this series, it was always my dream to be able to enjoy Saiyuki at it's peak right as the animation broadcasts in Japan. Ten years ago, that would've been impossible, but thanks to technology and streaming services, I can now watch it on Crunchyroll merely one hour after it airs in Japan. Not only that, but to be able to revel in the hype of the fandom as we get a new episode and character goods roll out one after another, I could not possibly be more happier.

    As for the animation quality itself, I think this is the best one yet and the studio producing the series has done an incredible job capturing Minekura's unique art style as well as bringing the world of Saiyuki to life like never before. When I watch the animation, I feel like I could almost be there right now. The best part of course, is that original Japanese cast has returned to voice the roles of the characters they've played for so long, and, after having Seki Toshihiko in person a year ago, I couldn't possibly be more happy to hear him as Sanzo again as he was, is, and will always be, my favorite character.

    I see. Well, I suggested ANN's summary as a start up for writing a new summary and not just copy & paste it.

    If it's of any help then, feel free to use the following I've just written:

    Five-hundred years ago prior to the original Saiyuki, Reload, & Blast story line, there was "Gaiden", were a nameless heretic child was brought to Heaven on fear that if left alone, chaos would befall the gods. The Merciful Goddess Kanzeon Bosatsu, orders her nephew Konzen Douji to care for the child. Though reluctant at first, Konzen slowly warms up to the child as he watches him become friends with Tenpou Gensui & Kenren Taishou. The heretic child would also start a friendship with a boy that also seemed his age: the War Prince Nataku.

    ...That heretic child was named "Goku".

    This is the story of the former lives of Genjyo Sanzo (Konzen), Cho Hakkai (Tenpou), and Gojyo (Kenren) when they were gods in heaven, how Goku was brought there and what ultimately led to their fallout from heaven and Goku's 500 year imprisonment prior to being found by Genjyo Sanzo in the main story.

    Quote by magiciangirl You're most welcome! I'm really happy to be able to contribute to the Saiyuki gallery in particular, as it was searching originally for high quality images that led me to discover Minitokyo back in 2006.

    As for Saiyuki Gaiden, Anime News Network offers a very good short summary that's not a spoiler.

    The only thing I would recommend adding to it for clarification about this prequel is: this story features the former lives of Genjyo Sanzo (Konzen), Cho Hakkai (Tenpou), and Gojyo (Kenren) when they were gods in heaven, how Goku was brought there and what ultimately led to their fallout from heaven and Goku's 500 year imprisonment prior to being found by Genjyo Sanzo in the main story. This previous information is not considered spoilers; the series is introduced as such by the author so readers can understand the premise of the story.

    I hope that's of some help.

    Unfortunately, MT does not accept summaries taken from other sites.
    Since I only watched the anime adoptions, I'm having some issues writing summaries for saiyuki franchise (>﹏<)

    Quote by Hakaru Do you mind scanning anything related to the animated version of saiyuki reload blast?

    I'm already planning to! I've been buying materials to scan from the Saiyuki Reload Blast anime in addition to Minekura art as well. Once I finish posting some remaining Otome scans, I will be moving full on into Saiyuki. Expect to start seeing Saiyuki in September. Thank you for asking and please look forward to it!

    Many thanks for your dedication of high quality scans to MT^^
    We are also lacking a spoiler free synopsis for Saiyuki Gaiden.

    Quote by Hakaru Just stop by to say hi(^O^)/

    I assume that you didn't encounter problems with administrating as mod.

    Hey,
    Nope but it seems I'm way to slow compared to Misa. She is so fast with tagging and flagging and so on.

    Quote by Hakaru Thanks for your help, Misa~

    You're very welcome Hakaru-san ^_^

    that episode was a original ending, and there are some changes to Kohane's subplots.

    As for xxxholic's animated film, I find the pace of story to be slow and boring.


    Well I didn't read that manga so I can't say if it's slow paced or not.
