"Boy, I wish this offer had been around the first time Saiyuki was brought to the US. This repackaging of the original 12 disc series has the first two discs (10 episodes) for the price of one.
Based on a Chinese folktale, Saiyuki tells the tale of a (very) human priest and his 3 demon companions as they travel west in order to bring peace back to the world. The characters are what make this series memorable and endearing, as they bicker and fight their way across the land, and the voicework in both the Japanese and English versions bring out every nuance of their outspoken counterparts' personalities.
Some of the animation is very limited, and some computer generated shortcuts can be painfully obvious, but the style of the artwork and the great voice overs make it a worthwhile series to start."
