About Saiyuki The Original Series Resurrected Edition Manga Volume 1 (Hardcover)

Saiyuki: The Original Series Resurrected Edition manga volume 1 features story and art by Kazuya Minekura and is presented in this collector's hardcover edition.

The boys are back, in 400-page hardcovers that are as pretty and badass as they are! This hit adventure—which blends mythology from around the world into a classic adventure story—has been out of print for years, and this collector’s edition is a fitting celebration of its return!

Genjo is a Buddhist priest in the city of Shangri-La, which is being ravaged by yokai spirits that have fallen out of balance with the natural order. His superiors send him on a journey far to the west to discover why this is happening and how to stop it. His companions are three yokai with human souls. But this is no day trip—the four will encounter many discoveries and horrors on the way, and on the road, Genjo will wonder…can he really trust his supernatural companions?

Awesome New Hardcover

My favorite manga resurrected! This is a beautiful hardcover omnibus edition to add to anyone's saiyuki collection.

Great print, sloppy translation.

by -

I was really excited that the series was picked up once again after being out of print since forever. This omnibus has a larger size and a lovely hardcover but it’s the inside that really counts.

I have read other Kodansha publications and I do not recall ever seeing such a sloppy translation before. Many words are left romanized or half romanized and it feels extremely awkward given that they are not terms without established translations nor common knowledge among English speakers. There are also many many grammar mistakes as well. Such as missing words and particles and doubled words and particles.

Given how amazing Saiyuki is and how much the fandom has been hoping for a reprint, this falls well below the mark of excellence established in the original print. I can only hope the next volumes are better but I’m well disappointed at this point and am not expecting much.

Different, Not Just a copy.

by -

This is definitely a different translation from the TokyoPop. Since I don't have the original Japanese, I can't say which is better.

I am sorry they persisted with "Jeep" for Hakuryu.

Translator notes are interesting, although I wish they'd included more cultural material, rather along the lines of what was done for xxxHolic.

Nonetheless, I'm glad I got this and I will continue to purchase these.
