Sorry for the long silence but I was very busy with the work on my University thesis and my graduation day that happened at the beginning of March.
Some Saiyuki updates have been left behind, so I'll try to collect all the important news in this post.
At the end of January, even if ZeroSum cover had been drawn by Minekura-sensei, didn't contain any Saiyuki chapter.

As far as I've understood, since then, Saiyuki is on hiatus because no datas have been revealed about a next one.
Moreover, Saiyuki BLAST vol.3 that was announced for 5th April, has been postponed to June.
While manga is stopped, some info have been given about anime: after the character design of main characters, also some secondary characters have been showed:

Kanzeon Bosatsu


Sai Tai Tsui

Yesterday, 23 March, Minekura-sensei turned 42 years old and this is a genga she drew for celebrate the anniversary of Copic:

I'm a bit late but I was very busy in these latest months so I cannot update my Journal. But here the latest important updates from Minekura-World.
For the 14th Anniversary of ZeroSum, Minekura-sensei drew this genga. Even if, until now, for 2016 she didn't draw any chapter, she said that on ZeroSum of this month she will draw a chapter, the cover and a coloured illustration.

They are working on a Sanzo action figure and this is the preview of the pose. I can't wait to see it!

Since 1th July on Animate Ikebukuro there is this special genga for its 30th Anniversary!

On 27th July will be released the BOX of the illustrations dedicated to Saiyuki.

Tomorrow will open Saiyuki Café dedicated to Saiyuki RELOAD BLAST and Gaiden. Minekura-sensei realized a genga...

...and coasters!

A new announcement about Saiyuki will be revealed on next Zerosum! Have you any idea about it?
