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
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?
