Afro-ken is God.
You will love Afro-ken. You will worship Afro-ken. Afro-ken will grant your wishes. Just follow him. Follow him unto death.
What made me so hooked on this anime wasn't the actual animation, but the characters themselves. They each have their own detailed back story, and are really fun to watch. Saiyuki has a huge amount of filler episodes, and the only thing that keeps me from being bored to death are the characters. Sadly, this was a low-budget anime, so the animation isn't the best. Most action scenes are just still shots. They also try to add 3DCG into the mix, which made it even worse. I did, however, enjoy the character designs and the art style. I love the soundtrack for this series, (in fact, I have it on my iPod ^^;)... See full review
