Saiyuki RELOAD BLAST picks up the story after the original Saiyuki manga, when Genjo Sanzo and his group have finally made it to India. However, their struggles are only beginning, as their past sins catch up with them from over five hundred years ago.

Saiyuki is loosely based on the Chinese novel Journey to the West, and was first serialized from 1997 to 2002. It spawned several manga sequels, anime adaptations, video games and even a stage play. It has also spent several spells under hiatus due to author Kazuya Minekura’s serious health issues.
