[Qoo News] Saiyuki Reload -ZEROIN- Reveals 1st PV, Additional Cast & January 2022 Debut


The new TV anime adaptation of Kazuya Minekura’s Saiyuki manga, Saiyuki Reload -ZEROIN- has revealed the first promotional video and additional cast. It is confirmed to debut in January 2022.








Saiyuki Reload -ZEROIN- will follow the manga’s Even a Worm arc. Kouichi Toochika will join the cast members as Hazel Grouse, a bishop who arrived from the west, and who is critical to the story arc. Rikiya Koyama takes the role of Gatti “Gat” Nenehawk, who works with Hazel.

Houchu Ohtsuka plays Ni Jianyi, a Sanzo practitioner with Muten Sutra and a scientist on Gyumaoh’s side. Liden Films is animating the series.


Saiyuki is the story of four punk-like heroes: the monk Genjyo Sanzo, the monkey king Son Goku, the half-demon Sha Gojyo, and the man who turned into a demon Cho Hakkai. They have been dispatched by the Sanbutsushin (the Three Aspects of Buddha, who relay the orders of heaven) to travel to India to stop the possible resurrection of the Ox-Demon-King, Gyumaoh.

Along the way they are beset by inept assassins, bad weather, and their own tragic personal pasts. Meanwhile, the villains, two unlikely confidants, Gyokumen Koushou and a mad scientist, Dr. Nii Jianyi, continue their attempts to restore the long-dead king. These experiments, a forbidden mixture of science and magic, spawn the “Minus Wave”, infecting all of the demons in Shangri-La with madness, shattering the fragile peace that once existed between humans and demons.
