THIS JOURNAL IS FRIENDS ONLY. I'm not looking to add new people, sorry, but if you really do want to read what goes on in my ridiculously hectic/occasionally emo life, leave me a comment letting me know who you are and we'll see.

If you're here for my artwork though, you're in the wrong place, go to [livejournal.com profile] yuuhua instead. Or alternatively my deviantart account.

Son Goku is the name of the monkey king in the famous Chinese legend "Xi You Ji" (also known as "Journey to the West"). Saiyuki (in Chinese that's "Zui You Ji) is a story based on the famous legend with a demon twist mixed in. The monkey king of legend, Son Goku, once again stars in this anime.

As do the other three main characters of legend. Sha He Shang (Sha Gojyo), Zhu Ba Jie (Cho Hakkai), and Tang San Zhang (Genjo Sanzo). These four characters are on a journey to the west in the original legend, and it's no different in this Japanese anime variation.

(To note, I absolutely adore Saiyuki's version of Sanzo. Kickass priest that smokes and drinks beer. In the original legend, he's this wimpy coward. Rawr!)

Dragonball Z put its BASIS around the original legend, and then REALLY deviated from it. It basically took the monkey, the kintou'un (Jin Dou Yun), the nyoibou (Jin Gu Bang), and Son Goku and worked everything else off the top of Toriyama's head. XD

[hugs] I had to give up anime recently too. Not that I have, but you know. My parents thought I had been desensitized to the world, and thought anything Japan was a bad influence. They let me keep some stuff thouhg.

My favorite story is the original legend. "Journey to the West". The one I was just rambling about. It's been a childhood favorite of mine, and will always remain that way. <333 Goku is never Goku in my mind, he's always "Wu Kong". <33333

Coolios. (Julio the Coolio...) I didn't know anything about the lord monkeyness. Everything is making sense now...

Alas, I shall always think of Goku, as, well, Goku. ^_______^
