This is a review of the anime only. I have not read the manga.

This felt more like a long OVA than a true sequel but it was still worth the watch. If you like the characters already and want to spend more time with them, this is a great way to do it.

What i loved about it:

1. The characters. These four are just so awesome. I can't get enough of them.
2. The art was far improved to the original. That was a plus for me.
3. It was super funny. Funnier than the original.
4. I liked the hand-drawn cards during the ending song. ...

The story in itself is amazing and I recommend reading he manga, but in my opinion of you love the first series like me I wouldn't bother watching the anime unless subbed avoid dubbed.

If you watched Saiyuki and liked it, you will definitely watch the Reload and gunlock sequels. However you will be surprised (as I was) that the sequels are all filler episodes. In Saiyuki, they showed some parts in the character's past lives so one would think it would have some relation to the overall plot of the sequels, which shockingly it did not. The characters look better in the sequels than in saiyuki (especially gojo, his hair actually becomes red and not purple this time) so that was a plus, if not the only one.
And the whole one-pattern personalities and lines get old after ...
