Gensou Maden Saiyuki or just Saiyuki, is yet another telling of the Chinese story, "The Journey to the West". With a contemporary and fresh way of looking at the story, filled with great music and entertaining characters. Not too much in the extras section on the DVDs. Although I did like the explanations of words used and the real history of some of the story/characters. I can see why there is a sequel to this series, it's a fun anime. Personally, Saiyuki Reload while having some good episodes, was not as good as GM. Sketches with * in the title have animated .gif.
