Muse India YouTube channel has recently started streaming the Saiyuki Reload Blast anime adaptation, based on Kazuya Minekura’s popular manga. The series takes place in a magical world where humans and yokai coexist on a peaceful continent called “Shangri-La.” However, a catastrophic event known as the “Calamity” causes all yokai to rampage, disrupting the balance of the continent. In an effort to stop Gyumaoh’s resurrection experiments, the Three Aspects venture westward towards India, encountering dangerous battles along the way.
This anime is not your typical adventure, as it combines elements of science, magic, and ancient mythology to create a unique and captivating world. The 12-episode series premiered in Japan in July 2017 and has now made its way to India via Muse Asia.
What makes this adaptation even more interesting is that it is the first Saiyuki anime not animated by Pierrot, but instead by Platinum Vision (known for Servamp). The talented team behind this anime includes director Hideaki Nakano, who worked with script supervisor Kenji Konuta (known for Library War, Ace of Diamond, Blood Lad) on Aoharu x Machinegun and Servamp. Additionally, character designs were done by Youko Satou (known for Dog & Scissors).
The anime is set to feature thrilling opening and ending theme songs performed by GRANRODEO and Luck Life, respectively, making the series even more exciting and immersive.
Saiyuki Reload Blast is not just an anime, it’s a franchise that has been around since 1999. The original manga has inspired an OVA, a television anime adaptation, a sequel film and OVA, as well as a prequel OVA. It has also been adapted into long-running stage plays and musicals.
Get ready to embark on a wild and unforgettable adventure with Saiyuki Reload Blast, where you’ll witness epic battles and thrilling twists and turns, all set in a captivating world that combines the best of both science and magic anime.
