I FREAKING LOVE this picture. It cracks me up that Hakkai is the only one smiling, but he's the only one with a legit weapon, haha! And of course, Sanzo's expression is the best. Him and his fan, lol, I ship it! XD <3 - Saiyuki
saiyukificrecs: It’s a little less than two weeks until Kazuya Minekura’s birthday (March 23). If you’re feeling ☆.｡.:* celebratory .｡.:*☆, there’s some decent lead time to work on fan works to post in honor of the date!
Yes they make an appearance in TE. Did I mention the fact that everyone is human and it's set in our reality in modern times? Yaone and Kougaiji are engaged, Doku is married with two kids as well as being a blacksmith/furrier, and Lirin-chan is Yaone's sister, but most of the major players are there. Saiyuki ~~ Kou's team
Kazuya Minekura, Saiyuki, Hakkai Cho, Genjyo Sanzo, Son Goku (Saiyuki)
Cho Hakkai #anime #saiyuki Sadly, the anime never shows this side of Youkai Hakkai. If they do a new series/OAV I would love to see more. Did the manga cover the whys and wherefores of Hakkai's transformation? I know that because he killed a thousand youkai, he became a youka himself. But why the vines? What kind of Youkai Is he?
