Saiyuki Gaiden Adventure Manga Prequel to End in May (Updated)

posted on by Egan Loo
Side story set 500 years before Kazuya Minekura's original Saiyuki manga

The eighth issue of Ichijinsha's Zero-Sum Ward magazine announced on Monday that Kazuya Minekura will end her Saiyuki Gaiden manga prequel in the next issue on May 16. Minekura set this side story 500 years before the story in her original Saiyuki fantasy adventure manga. She began Saiyuki Gaiden in Square Enix's Monthly G-Fantasy magazine in 1999, although she moved it to Monthly Comic Zero-Sum (Zero-Sum Ward's parent magazine) in 2002 and then put the manga on hold for one year in 2004. A Saiyuki Gaiden Memorial Book will ship in Zero-Sum Ward's 10th issue.

Tokyopop published the original Saiyuki manga in North America, and ADV Films and Geneon Entertainment (USA) have released its various television and film anime adaptations.
