Before Sanzo, Goku, Gojyo and Hakkai formed their party and began their Journey to the West, their lives were completely different. Following the death of his master, Sanzo left his temple in order to retrieve the Seiten Sutra, and after wandering alone for four years, he arrives at the Palace of the Setting Sun; he is plagued by nightmares and unwilling in his role as Genjo Sanzo. Then, upon hearing a voice calling out to him, Sanzo climbs Mt. Gogyou and happens upon Son Goku, a monster cast out from the heavens and imprisoned for five hundred years, who then proceeds to follow him around. Meanwhile, some time after Hakkai received his judgement at the Palace of the Setting Sun, he and Gojyo are living together; but when an old friend of Gojyo's turns up on their doorstep, it seems their hopes of a quiet life are not meant to be.

Story: 7/10 Admittedly, the original Saiyuki animes have failed to pique my interest. I remember watching them as a kid, so when i stumbled across Saiyuki Burial, I thought that I'll give it a try, just for old time's sake. To my surprise, it wasn't your run of the mill bishounen stuff, it was actually rather deep and heart wrenching, something which I'd never dreamed possible.
