Saiyuki re-read

I've been continuing my re-read of Saiyuki. I've breezed through the rest of the original and Saiyuki Gaiden and am currently on Saiyuki Reloaded.

Gaiden's ending was sad. You know it's going to happen though since Konzen, Tenpou and Kenren need to be reincarnated as Sanzo, Hakkai and Gojyo.

Whoever was in charge of their reincarnation needs to be fired since all three ended up with crappy lives until they met as adults. I could understand them ending up with crappy lives if they were being punished but by the end of Gaiden everyone knows that Konzen, Tenpou and Kenren were trying to stop Li Touten who was the real villain.

As for Reloaded I never read much of it before so I'm enjoying it. There's too much Hazel though and not enough Kougaiji. Kougaiji is far more entertaining as an non-evil antagonist who needs to oppose Sanzo's party for his own valid reasons. I am glad that he is no longer brainwashed.
