sadly that depends entirely on when someone who can do subs gets a hold of it. the airing date is only for japan so the day it's released to the US or even available for purchase from another country is also totally up in the air... :/

I really can't wait to watch that. I squealed every time there was a flashback from the character's previous life in the original series. Now I get to see it all! :)

WAHHHH-HAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!! I cracked a rib screaming with joy when I heard it finally got the green light!!!! :D
and as for the gaiden, sadly all the replies saying that the gaiden is better...? It's totally true. Unlike the other three this one is... incredibly touching. You wouldn't expect it. It's one of the most amazing stories I've read. :3

500 years before Saiyuki? Meh, I don't really care about it. And I don't even particulourly like Saiyuki anywayz.

Well, since I've watched all the other ones, I might grab it.

Saiyuki Gaiden > Saiyuki

You won't be disappointed.

At last an OVA from Saiyuki Gaiden.
Had been waiting for YEARS XD XD

Oh yesh. <3

I'm a big fan of Saiyuki. I've watched each season and each movie around five times, but I can never get enough. When I discovered Saiyuki Gaiden, I freaked out and kept reading it till dawn. And when I finished the last available scanlated chapter of Saiyuki Gaiden, I cried because it was so sad - so sad, but so worth it, and it showed me a lot about their pasts all over again.

So to finally have an OVA come out on Saiyuki Gaiden - honestly, I was expecting it for a while now, but I'm glad that they finally decided to reel it in. I'm sure to cry more tears when it comes out.
