Dragon Ball, Midnight Eye: Gokuu Recommendations
While these two anime are not meant for the same audience (Dragon Ball is Shonen and Goku: Midnight Eye is not), both anime are initially inspired by Journey to the West. In both anime, the main protagonist wields a length-changing staff and battles against powerful enemies. Both anime are action-packed as well. If you like one, you should probably like the other.
Their main characters are based on Sun Wukong (Monkey King) from Journey to the West (Classic Chinese book).
