    Sayuki

    Okay, I?ve read all the 9 volumes, and it ends in a weird place. So I start searching for further info on where I can get the rest of the chapters/volumes on it, and find this:

    "Currently, there are:

    9 volumes of Gensomaden Saiyuki
    3 volumes of Saiyuki Reload
    1 volume of Saiyuki Gaiden

    Saiyuki Reload is a continuation of Gensomaden Saiyuki. The series was renamed because Minekura Kazuya changed publishers. Saiyuki Gaiden is a separate story of sorts: it revolves around the 4 main characters' previous incarnations when they were living in Heaven."

    And when I downloaded the first chapters of Sayuki Reload, I was surprised to see that it wasnt a continuation of Gensomaden Sayuki, but it was the exact (ok, maybe not) same thing as the first chapter of Gensomaden Sayuki, except there were some minor changes! So can anyone please set this straight for me? When Minekura changed publishers, did he have to start the whole manga from the beginning, and decided to change it a bit, so it wouldnt be the exact same thing? Sorry If I?m confusing! :(

    Eh... I think maybe you downloaded something wrong. :huh Saiyuki Reload is the continuation of Gensoumaden Saiyuki. It picks up right where GMS left off. The name change was simply due to a change of publishers.

    And, if you know where to look, Saiyuki Reload has had four volumes scanlated so far. If you want I can send you a link to it (in fact the entire Saiyuki series -- GMS, SR and Gaiden), but you'll need IRC to get them. :amuse

    I love Saiyuki. I recommend it (and Hunter x Hunter) to everyone I know that reads manga. The only thing is that I get so tired of waiting for anything new to come out(episode, chapter, volume), almost makes me wish I didn't like Saiyuki so much...

    You can get it on IRC through #lurk. Their website makes it really easy by listing the bots and pack numbers. You need a registered IRC nickname to get them, though.

    Me! I have manga vols 1-7. Goku and sanzo are my favorite characters. I don't know if I'm going to buy Reload though...

    Can anyone tell me if it's any good?

    I'm looking for 6 volumes of Saiyuki Reload.
    I found only 1-4 volumes at Manga City. At #lurk, there are 1-4 volumes with 3 chapters from 5th volumes :(

    so.. anybody can help me finding at least 2 last volumes?..

    Perhaps you should go to a bookshop/amazon.com and buy them like normal people?

    Why does good threads die.

    I love Saiyuki. Got into the craze late, but I truly enjoy it. My favorite is Goku, with Ni Jianyi a close second. I've read all of the volumes that have been released, the two Gaidens and seen all of the anime (haven't seen that "once" interactive video yet).

    I think Reload is amazing. The art is just some of Minezuka's best and the storytelling is still as good. I can't wait till they get Hakkai and Goku's fight done (whatever they do when they take it from weekly/monthly comics and put it in an actual book).
