I've only read the first 5 volumes of the manga...I don't know much about the anime... never seen it, but it seems that there are three different serieses of it. Huh? Are they all based on the manga? My fav is either Hakkai or Gojyo... possibly both...together But I really like the other two too! All four make such a great group! *happy dance*

Cho Hakkai is my favorite. He's like the mother of the group where Sanzo is the father and Goku and Gojyo are the kids. I love how long suffering Hakkai is. But when he is at his limit, watch out, even Goku is in awe .

Sanzo's an ol' softy . He's always giving in when the 'children' cry. I love watching when Sanzo gets caught in being 'nice'. He's always got some explanation, but you know he actually cares.
Sanzo is just so KAWAII!!!! when he's being nice but trying not to look as though he's being nice. I just bought Saiyuki Reload and Saiyuki Reload Gunlock. Excellent Animes, both of them and there's this episode where Sanzo was stuck with a kitten. He's just soooo cute when he does that.
The way they quarrel with each other just like siblings. They can't survive without each other really. It's been proven. Without Hakkai, they'll starve and be buried under a mountain of trash. Without Gojyo, everybody becomes more irritable, even Hakkai. Without Goku...umm...well...there's no episode where Goku isn't there yet. Sanzo? There's no episode for that too. They can't go on without Sanzo anyway...
Ah yeah...I'm rambling aren't I? I just watched the Anime so I'm still on that stage where I'm really really hyper. Some of you guys should know this problem.
Ah...actually...I have a really big request for you guys...do anyone have Saiyuki Scanlations? Or do you know where to get them. I have Saiyuki Gaiden Scanlations and I bought Saiyuki Reload, English version already so the only thing that I don't have is Saiyuki.
Going back to other topics, do share your thought on the Sanzo-ikkou or Kougaiji-sama. I have a friend who absolutely adores Kougaji. Can't blame her really, Kou's pretty cool. I love the scenes where Kou or Sanzo is mumbling some incantations (curse words?). I can't get enough of Sanzo's past too. We see so few of that.
Enough of that before I ramble some more...
