Hakkai Goku Gojyo Reload Youkai 01
In the Saiyuki Universe there are two species/races known as Youkai (demons) and Humans. After a mysterious force--the Minus Wave--is released as a by-product of the experiments to revive the great Ox King, Gyumaoh, youkai went crazy for a short time and attack mindlessly. Since that time the demons have somewhat regained themselves, but now are very much aware that they are the more powerful race and see the humans only as food.



CharactersEdit

These are the youkai (good & bad) 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.
