Getting ambushed by rogue demons on the road is business as usual for the Sanzou party. But when their latest assailants turn out to be humans, the group is left dumbfounded. The mystery only deepens when they encounter a wandering priest, Hazel Grouse, and his imposing bodyguard, Gaty Nene Hawk. The pair hails from the far West, with Hazel using his powers of resurrection to aid grief-stricken villages. While his ability is greatly welcomed by the people, the truth behind it is less miraculous than it seems. Furthermore, the resurrected humans gain golden eyes, a trait they share with the group's recent attackers. It appears that the friendly priest's intentions are not as generous as one might expect—and the Sanzou party is a step away from unraveling them.

Saiyuki Reload Zeroin is a remake of the 2004 season Saiyuki Reload Gunlock, the difference is that this new season follows the manga fairly.

Story: This season focuses on the new characters Hazel and his bodyguard Gat, "bringing back the dead to life" is Hazel's power: using demons' souls to revive humans. The first part which was episodic sets the main characters conflicting POVs about this power, but the final part of good pacing manages to thrill us with the new enemy and the Sanzo Ikkou development.

Characters: they are the driving power of the story and this season fleshed out all the characters, especially Goku ...

Mixed Feelings
honestly, what is this series for? because people who have followed the Saiyuki series would know that Hazel Grouse and Gat Nenehawk have already appeared before in Saiyuki Gunlock. so them appearing again is weird and Sanzo group acting like they don't know each other is even weirder.

i mean the producers of this particular series should probably watch the earlier seasons and not re-input characters that have appeared before like they are completely new characters.

additionally, i have no idea what is the motive of the black Sanzo, that guy is freaking annoying.

overall, i think this series is pretty disappointing.

Oh, Lindenfilms. Please, please, never adapt a manga ever again.

Saiyuuki's new anime is... a mixed bag. To say the least. Not what I wanted to say considering the great quality of the manga source. Yet still, it was somehow a peak of an otherwise completely uninteresting season for anyone not interested in *insert current trending drivel here*.

Let's start with the elephant in the room. The art. A step up from Tokyo Revengers, Lindenfilms here manage to retain the detailed character designs. As with the aforementioned show though, the animation quality is rather low. It's very static, almost like a PowerPoint at times. The action ...
