Sanzo Gat Hazel Reload Humans 01
In the Saiyuki Universe there are two species/races known as Humans and Youkai (demons). After a mysterious force--the Minus Wave--is released as a product of the experiments to revive the great Ox King, Gyumaoh, youkai start to go crazy and attack humans. Humans now hold more fear and prejudice against their demonic brethren than they ever did before.


These are the humans that we meet in the Saiyuki Universe along the Journey of the Sanzo Party to stop this "Minus Wave" and try to bring back peace between the two species/races.
