However, in “Saiyuki”, the legend is fictionalized and the result is almost an original creation. This series is adapted from very popular comic books of the same title and a monthly publication in a magazine. The background of the original Chinese story is a world of magic and sorcery. In this series, it is drastically upgraded into a thrilling mixture of European sorcery in the Middle Ages, “Black Magic” “Alchemy” and modern technology such as automobiles, cyborg, androids, and heavy weaponry etc.! “Saiyuki” is an action-packed powerful series generating fantasy and imagination through myths and legends of monsters, beasts, evil sorcerers and immortal heroes!
