Product Description

Amazon.ca

An animated version of Minekura Kazuya's manga adaptation of the Chinese novel The Journey to the West, Saiyuki scored a big hit in 2000, and was followed by the sequels Reload (2003) and Gunlock (2004). Sanjo Genjo and his squabbling half-demon companions Sha Goyjo, Cho Hakkai, and Son Goku have made remarkably little progress toward their destination in India over the years. In episode 1, someone remarks, "it may seem like they do nothing but take one detour after another." But Saiyuki fans love those detours, and Gunlock delivers plenty of them. The mismatched quartet continues their picaresque adventure, aiding the weak and bickering among themselves. They also find the time to kill plenty of nasty demons, although the animation of the fights is extremely limited. A serious threat arises when sinister Ni Jenyi turns Sanzo's respected foe Kougaiji into a soulless killing machine, but that subplot will play out over time. (Rated 16 and older: violence, grotesque imagery, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

The epic journey westward by Sanzo, Goku, Gojyo and Hakkai continues!

In this first volume, the group must face some of their most deadly challenges yet! A peaceful temple hides a corrupt secret; will Sanzo fall victim to the deadly truth? After that, a den full of disgruntled bears is on the hunt, and Sanzo and the others just happen to be in the crosshairs. To top it off, the group must cross an impassable river, see through deadly illusions and a newly unstoppable Kougaiji is waiting for them. Will they ever make any progress on their journey?

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Start June 21 2006
By SK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Saiyuki Reload Gunlock is the third series installment in the adventures of Sanzo, Goku, Gojyo, and Hakkai: four travelers on their way to India to prevent a demon resurrection. The first Saiyuki series was by far the best so far, with awesome character development and intriguing storylines. The sequel, Saiyuki Reload, paled in comparism for the most part, although it did a fairly good adaptation of the end of the manga toward the end. So far Gunlock appears to be a step up from Reload, but still not as good as the first series.

The English voices are the same as Reload, and the art is very similar if not the same as Reload, as well. (Which is a shame, since the original character designs were more appealing to me.) The first episode is a filler, though, it's not a complete recap/reintroduction episode. The remaining episodes follow the story arc from the Saiyuki Reload manga volume 2. It's a faithful adaptation, although, I still feel like some of the characterizations are slightly off. It's an exciting storyline, so it's enjoyable to watch.

Overall, this series is already starting out better than Reload. Hopefully the rest of the series will continue in this vein. For anyone but the most hardcore fan, don't bother with Reload. (Though, DVDs 5-7 were pretty good.) Although Kougaiji's situation from Reload trails into Gunlock, if you keep up with the manga, you should know what's going on. Instead, just start up with Gunlock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saiyuki Reload Gunlock Vol 1. What a great way to start the new series!!!! May 17 2006
By Martha Mullins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The series starts off as Sanzo and party are still traveling to India. However, new obstacles are standing in their way... like a new enemy... and an old one. Still, the past haunt our 4 travelers as they journey west.

There are FUNNY and very dramatic moments in the first volume of Gunlock. I have to say it is the best disc of the start of a season I have ever experienced. I can't wait to see where the rest of the series leads Sanzo and the others... and if they will EVER get to India.
3.0 out of 5 stars dissapointed in saiyuki gunlock Nov. 23 2013
By MissBubbles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had my expectations set very high for the third series. I thought it would be action packed like the first and second series, but the action that took place in gunlock was very very corny and a whack ass ending along with easy defeat of the bad guys. Hardly anyone was seriously hurt of the sanzo party. Unrealistic and pathetic! I wish the series was only worth 10 bucks because it was a big dissapointed and 100 minutes of my life was wasted that i will never get back.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dirty Harry and the Three Stooges Journey to the West. June 7 2008
By Gabe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
That must've been the pitch the writers made to the producers: It's a comedy. Dirty Harry and the Three Stooges as the modern day revision of the classic Journey to the West. It'll be funny!

And it is!
