Saiyuki chapter!!!

Saiyuki chapter has finally been published!
Yeah, the situation is pretty the same of the former one but it has been published!
And everytime I see Minekura-sensei's drawings I can't help to think she is a genius.






Unfortunately even if the chapter was out, Saiyuki RELOAD BLAST vol.3 has been postponed again...
I hope for another chapter at the end of September. I think we need less of 20 pages to complete vol.3.

The first DVD of BLAST anime has been released:



This illustration is...WOW! *____*

In the meantime Saiyuki BLAST anime is arrived at episode 10.
In my opinion episodes about BLAST were the best. Even if I still think that it was early for a BLAST anime, it's cool watching the story animated.
But I didn't like the little filler in which they added Zakuro character in the episode 9.
What do you think about the anime so far?
Here some other gadgets for merchandise:





And...On 21st September will be Hakkai's birthday. For the occasion a shop has created these sweets:

A new chapter is coming!

After months, Minekura-sensei has just tweeted that ZeroSum of this month (28th August) will have a NEW SAIYUKI CHAPTER!
Finally we'll find out more about the destiny of Sanzo ikkou and Sharaku&Hassan!









However, Saiyuki RELOAD BLAST vol.3 has been postponed. The new release data is 30th September.
Since a new chapter will be released I think that this time the tankobon will be really released at that data.




















Today is the release data of Saiyuki RELOAD BLAST DVD 1.











And today has been broadcast the 8th episode of Saiyuki RELOAD BLAST.
Now 4 episodes miss to the end of this anime. I'm happy that finally they are showing BLAST chapters.
What do you think about these episodes until now?

No Saiyuki chapter, yes anime and merchandise

After two weeks in a seaside place, I come back to write about Saiyuki!
Unfortunately wasn't published a new BLAST chapter in the latest ZeroSum. We have to wait (and hope) for the end of August.
Well we able to have a BLAST chapter in 2017?
But, if manga is in hiatus, anime and merchandise are not!
Saiyuki BLAST anime has so few about "BLAST"...now it's started Gaiden arc...we have to expect at least other 2 episodes...
But for remembering us some real BLAST characters, here the anime chara of Sharaku and Hassan.

 


 


 

Here some CD covers. Nataku and Goku together.

 


 

And here the cover of Move on! CD.

 


 As you can see, the cover above was drawn by sensei and the covers of these two Anthologies too.


 Anthologies are about BLAST and Gaiden  and contain stories written by many different authors and illustrations by Naked Apes.

 

 
 

 Recently in Nagoya was held a mini-Saiyuki FESTA with some items created for the event


 Here some of them!
Sweets with an image of our beloved Saiyuki boys on them.


 Gaiden mini-plates.


 

Cards and illustrations.
 

A tote bag with the panda drawing by Sanzo (...)
 


 An Iphone case. 


 And other items...

 


 Now many pics of Saiyuki goods randomly.
