Short episode guide for Saiyuki RELOAD, sequal to Gensomaden Saiyuki.
After the harsh final battle with Homura, the Sanzo-ikkhou continues with their westward journey. And they get a makeover too.
Sanzo's hair is shinier and he wears boots instead of sandals. Goku outgrew his old pants, now wears raggedly torn jeans. Hakkai looks pretty much the same except he no longer tucks in his shirt. The most prominent change has to be Gojyo. His hair is nice shade of crimson, he wears a suede jacket with tight(was it THAT tight??..hmmm) leather pants.
The soundtrack and background music changed its style too. The opening and ending themes are more modernized and 'loud'...or shall I say 'cool'. You should really pay attention to the background music throughout the series too. There are a few really nice ones (sorry but we're still trying to find out the name of these songs. If anyone knows the title, please let us know), especially one of the song that I clearly remember played in episode 4.
Another nice thing about Saiyuki RELOAD is the Saiyuki Mini Theather: UraSai. Short entertaining sketches about the four.
A really welcomed change from Gensomaden Saiyuki. Introducing...Saiyuki RELOAD!
Here's anooooother Cracked Actor bit. Nobody gives Pierrot enough looove! So, if you were confused about that 'taking Pierrot in' deal, my theory is that Dave, AKA David, since he was inspired by certain things to create his personae, he had to find them. When he found the inspiration, there the persona was also. So, he was inspired in a street in the pouring rain (Like the opening lyrics to Kingdom Come) for Pierrot---and there he found him, under a bridge. Also, that they were running around loose, so David of course assumed they were just annoying everybody.
Another short piece for the Cracked Actor Comic group. For those unfamiliar with the various David Bowie personas used there and their given names, "Sers" is short for "Serious Moonlight" -- he represents "Let's Dance"-era Bowie.
This is a prose story for the group Cracked Actor, a charming fan comic based around the premise of David Bowie and his many characters living together in one house.
(For those who do not recognize the name "Astronettes", it was used twice during David's Ziggy Stardust/Aladdin Sane years. It was first used for his backup dancers at the Rainbow Theater shows of August 19th-20th, 1972, and second for his backup singers in "The 1980 Floor Show" TV special in '73.)
Another story written for the CrackedActorComic group! This was inspired by dialogue from the film "Absolute Beginners". I thought it was a funny coincidence that it arrived the same year "Labyrinth" did, given both movies' talk of dreams...
