Saiyuki manages to hang on as one of the few remnants of the 2000s era of anime. After several years, another sequel is coming out in Saiyuki Reload -ZEROIN-, airing on January 6th in Japan. Kazuya Minekura‘s own unique spin on the classic Journey to the West series has created four different anime series, with the most recent one being Saiyuki Reload Blast in 2017. As the manga celebrates it’s 25th anniversary, they’re also doing a special event called Saiyuki FESTA 2022 in April. There’s also a Sanzo trailer for the series, with the lead character threatening to shoot everyone if they don’t get in line.
Saiyuki Reload -ZEROIN- debuts on January 6th in Japan. International release dates to be announced.
