Saiyuki Reload: Burial
Episode 1: Genjo Sanzo's Chapter
Air Date: 4/27/2007
WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
If you haven't yet seen Saiyuki Reload: Burial yet do not click on any of the art to see the big pictures there is a rather detailed description of each scene on each page. If you do want to see Burial I suggest you hop on over to Youtube. Each episode is broken up into 5 or more parts.
There are only three episodes which deal with times before our heroes head on the road west. The first episode deals with Ukoku and Sanzo. Ukoku's story focuses on how he came to be a Sanzo without the chakra, and the second half of the episode deals with Genjo Sanzo and his transition from tortured, guilty adolescent to a, slightly pissy strong leader. A Sanzo who combines the ideals of both Heaven and Hell.
Episode 2: Son Goku's Chapter
Air Date: 9/28/2007
This episode covers the backstory of how Son Goku and Sanzo met, it also touches briefly on how the meeting between Koumyou and Kouryuu parallels it. It also has the great distinction of being gorgeously animated, Studio Arms the OVA/OAV branch of Studio Pierrot did an excellent job on these three episodes, and the art I have been able to get my hands on is very high quality.
Please enjoy what I have acquired and let me know if you have questions anytime ^_^
Episode 3: Cho Hakkai and Sha Gojyo's Chapter
Air Date: 12/26/2007
This episode is about how the disparate personalities Hakkai and Gojyo learn to work together. Hakkai is still highly traumatized by his transformation into a Demon, and Gojyo is still highly jaded from his upbringing as a child of Taboo. They balance and heal each other, and this is their first tentative steps towards that.
