Saiyuki Gaiden

Saiyuki Gaiden

Fantasy, Action, Adventure - 2011 (OVA)
Ranking: 571

500 years before Saiyuki, a heretic child with golden eyes is brought to Heaven and given into the reluctant care of a minor deity, Konzen, nephew of the Merciful Goddess Kanzeon Bosatsu. Konzen eventually names him Goku. Goku befriends two other minor gods, Marshal Tenpou and General Kenren of the Western Army of Heaven, and a boy who seems to be his age, the War Prince Nataku. Though Goku is happy in his new home, Heaven is not kind to heretics. (Source: ANN)

Reviews

   

should watch those two episodes before watching these OVAs. Other than that it is not necessary to watch Saiyuki or any of the sequels before this, though I suggest you do because the whole series is great :) Saiyuki Burial is next in chronological order. - MyAnimeList (Tetsumine)

    

I can't give this a full 10 out of 10 due to the lacking beginning and the calm scenes used in the middle of the action, but it's still a must-watch for fans of the series. - Anime-Planet (mdchan)
