Comment:
This 1999 OAV is the earliest adaptation of Saiyuki made by Tokyo Kids. DO NOT confuse it with Saiyuki TV and its sequels made by Pierrot or the new OAV released on 2007-04-27. Note that 3 out of 4 main casts are different, with the exception of Akira Ishida as Cho Hakkai remained the same in the TV series.
