Saiyuki is a manga/anime series which is inspired by the Chinese fantasy novel, The Journey to the West. However, the anime adds its own twist to the age-old tale.

A new anime adaptation of the Saiyuki Reload manga is on its way. The “Even a Worm” arc of the manga will inspire the Saiyuki Reload-ZEROIN- anime.
A promotional video has been posted for the upcoming anime.
The teaser video shows the four main protagonists cheering each other up and fighting together. It offers a modern and punk twist on the original Journey to the West series. New power-ups and villains will be the bonus point.
“Even a Worm” is the second-last arc of the manga.
A new visual showing Son Goku, Genjyo Sanzo, Sha Gojyo and Cho Hakkai dressed in full combat outfits is also revealed.
