    i'm actually in the process of reading the manga. o.o;; Hazel having a southern accent? That's definitely different. Since they killed them off I'm sure they'll just make another character in the next series as the main antagonist.

    Geez i really hate Saiyuki..... its such a messed up reinterpretation of a great Chinese legend"The Monkey Kind". All the characters are so bad compared to the actual Legend itself. The storyline, charaters, and even action is about 100x better in the series 1998 drama.

    Guess its not your fault that you guys like it. Its just that you've never seen the original.

    Wow... You know so much... :\

    Saiyuki is not based on some Chinese legend called "The Monkey Kind" It's based on "Journey to the West". A publication dating back to the 16th century - over 500 years ago.

    But a 1998 drama got it best. Which one? There are TONS of dramas made for the legend in Chinese and Japanese almost every year. Every one of them interprets the story in it's own way.

    But this one got action 100x better... I'm trying to envision some the dumb-ass things that went on in the real story and wonder how could a 1998 drama get it better then that and a hyped up version like Saiyuki? 100x so, you say? Incredible.

    Really mature to get on here and say something like "its not your fault that you guys like it." Learn that we can't all have your supreme tastes.

    Regardless, I still really like it ^_^;; I don't think it's bad or poor. And the thing I like best about it is the characters--I don't think they're crappy at all!
