The manga is great. This anime is adapting the later half of Sayuki Reload, part two of Saiyuki manga.

Just now realized this but why did they changed Goku's pants color to green when it's always blue in the manga and previous anime seasons?

Kinda wish they could bring back Reload composer on this since Hazel's themes in Gunlock is quite memorable.

So another sequal is coming. I recent tried watching saiyuuki. 6 episode in, plot is repetitive and animation is super bad low budget.I kind of like the characters, but that not really enough though. I wonder does it get better. There are so many saiyuuki sequal which kind of puts me off too. Is it worth catching up to this, does plot thickens or animation improves further down?

Trailer actually looks a big improvement from whatever I saw in first series



Iirc, there are quite a few fillers in the anime and the story gets stretched out. Manga has a tighter pacing

AAAAHHHH MY CHILDHOOD!!!!!!!! I'm so happy we're getting a new season ToT <3 <3 <3

I know it's just going to be a sort of reboot of Gunlock, but I really hope we see the conclusion for this series eventually ToT

Looking forward to it. I'm still on the first series but I'm hoping to binge through everything animated in time for this to air <3

It seems to me more and more that in our time, classic anime simply cannot exist, since all this will have a remake or a reboot. Also, it looks like Granrodeo has found their place in an all-male show for a female audience.
