One night, a meteor came crashing down on a magical planet, carrying with it a monkey whose body is as hard as stone. With this unusual power, the monkey soon becomes the king of the monkeys atop Flower Fruit Mountain, and rules with a selfish, egotistical and controlling fist. While evil ruler of the underworld wants to mold the monkey into a tool of his using, the forces in the heavens want to make certain the monkey doesn’t threaten the balance between humans and the wild. With the forces of good at his feet, the stone monkey sets forth to gain the ultimate divine power so that he may strike down his enemies where they stand!
Alakazam used to be a normal monkey until he took the steps to become the king of his kind. As ruler, he quickly becomes selfish and cold-hearted, caring only for power and his own whims. Determined to defeat even the most powerful rulers of the land, Alakazam sets forth to prove his might, not realizing that soon he'll be forced to embark on an even more grand adventure...
Don't get me wrong, Monkey Magic is one of the worst titles ever. Still, it's one of the few Saiyuki anime, like Alakazam, that focuses on Goku and how much of a selfish ass he is. Since the plots are so similar (unlike, say, the bishounen and long running title Gensou Maiden Saiyuki), consider this a tenative recommendation.
In the mystical world of Shangri-la, demons and humans live side by side, watched over by a parthenon of ancient Chinese gods. But when normally-civilized demons start to go berserk, the gods require the services of Genjou Sanzo - a Buddhist priest with a magical gun, an evil-banishing scripture and a take-no-prisoners attitude. Aided by the ancient monkey god Son Goku, the half-demon Sha Gojyo and the demon exterminator Cho Hakkai, he sets off on a treacherous journey westward, with armies of demons, dark mages and angry gods all standing in his way...
I'll be honest: I have no clue why you liked Monkey Magic. Was it the horrible animation? The terrible story? The ridiculous dub?
Regardless, Saiyuki should be more up your alley. Still has a very Chinese feel to it, but has a far greater story, better characters, and is a better fantasy/adventure story in general.
