The fourth episode, titled ‘Choice,’ appears to have the Sanzo group stopped in a city that couldn’t be entered by demons due to a barrier that was made by Lord Soushin. As Goku, Gojyo and Hakkai were enjoying the bustling of the city, they fell right into a trap.

While Sanzo was being surrounded, Goku and the others lost consciousness when the ‘rare demonic child from the mountains’ spread its wings. Sanzo could tell that this time it’s different. He fought back and defeated the attackers and came back to Goku, who was now being surrounded by the followers of the so-called fake clerk, according to Gojyo.

How will Goku react after Sanzo was harmed? Will he snap and excite fans, as he always does? When Ukoku shared that ‘Seiten Taisei has golden eyes,’ with Hazel, did he mean Son Goku?

Fan Review of Saiyuki Reload Zeroin

There is a flood of comments by people who say they are in their late 20’s now, sharing their childhood memories of Saiyuki Reload. Many fans are aware that this anime series has long been released. The newer version, or say the reboot, has taken many fans to the path of joy. They are happy to know that their all-time favorite anime series came back to them, once again.

Though some say the scenes have been modified way too much, they still love it. The recent episodes have made fans crazy. They love Goku, Gojyo, Hakkai, and Sanzo. Some even say they are waiting for Goku to snap again, so his limiter breaks, just like in season one. Some think that Saiyuki Reload Zeroin has taken a totally different route from Reload Gunlock’s Hazel arc.

Fans of Sanzo are happy, as well as disappointed at the same time. They wanted more of Sanzo’s fighting scenes. Though his gunshot appearance melted many, Sanzo falling onto Goku’s shoulders was also one of the many scenes that made fans happy. Goku, Sanzo, Gojyo, and Hakkai’s journey and the fan’s journey seem to be going hand-in-hand. To have to wait for every new episode seems to be too much for fans.
