Because this poor community is so dead!D: *revives it*

First off, please excuse the temporary and ugly layout.

Anyway, the topic for discussion is, out of all the four Saiyuki (Gensomaden, Gaiden, Reload, Gunlock) which for you is the best?

I shall be posting the announcements for March next week and I'd like to advertise a new lovely comm owned by your lovely and beautiful mods. pot_pairs because I can...no, seriously, it's just that I need to liven up this community and all...it's so dead...Don't hesitate to post nonesense or advertise or ask questions. We encourage that.

Thank you!<3

Forgive my ignorance, but I only just recently got into Saiyuki and I didn't realize there were four. I currently own the first 50 episodes, which I assume is Gensomaden.. I thought after that was Reload and then Gunlock. I have never heard of Gaiden. Help?

The first two seasons (episodes 1-50) are what compose Gensomaden. The nest 25 episodes are Reload and then the next 25 is Gunlock.

Gaiden is more of a sidestory really. It's about the Sanzo-ikkou (Konzen, Kenren, Tenpou and young Goku) and Hakuryu (Gojun) when they were in Tenkai living as gods. They had a few episode of Gaiden in Gensomaden and there's more to the story in the Gaiden manga. It's also about Nataku and how he became a lifeless shell and how Sanzo-ikkou defied Tenkai and were forced to be reincarnated as the Sanzo-ikkou. Its manga is interesting really.

OH! ::facepalm::

I didn't even realize that that part of the story was called Gaiden. You see how new I am to the fandom. >_<

::soaks it all up with glee::

Thank you for the clearing up of confusion! ^__^

I apologize for the late reply!x_x Umm...I don't think it's going down as long as the mods are still alive. :D And yes, Konzen is available, if you want to get try out for him, then you can check the first post in the community. That's where the appliactions for the Sanzo-ikkou are. The format for Konzen's is just the same anyway, except well...it's him!:D Good luck in trying out!^^

*prods the community* Yo. Anyone still alive here? J/K . You've got a great idea going here, but where do I find the assignment application form and stuff? Is this community still on or what?

Re. "current topic": Euhm. Good question. I look at the whole collection as one whole story. All of the parts have pros and cons. The mangas mesh well together so none are better than the others, IMO. The animes in general were all too frequently chronologically out of order. I liked all of the fillers anyway. I hated Gojyo having pink/magenta/ whatever hair in Gensomaden, but the rest was great, and the movie Requiem rocked. I haven't seen enough of Gunlock yet to form a solid opinion. Gaiden appears only in the second half of Gensomaden and covers only the first volume of the graphic novels so my opinion on that is that it should have been given its own anime series.

Thank-you. Well, I'm going to give it the old college try anyway. Internet communities are kind of like plants. You think they're dead, but a little TLC brings them back.

Yes, I think I need to give this poor little community more love...otherwise, it shall wither into oblivion. T_T Aha, but seeing you, an active member, heh, I think there's still hope for the community. XD

Looking around here makes me sad I only have one of the seasons/series.

*Goes off to check which on it is only to fail*

I think it's the first one, because it starts with the first episode, and ends with the end of the "Gods" arc. Could someone help please? The box dosen't say... ^^;
