Show Summary

Once, demonkind and man lived together in harmony. But that's about to change. A band of rogue demonic forces seeks to resurrect and to unleash Gyumao, an evil demon imprisoned for thousands of years. Dark spiritual energy begins to cover the land and the demons decide mankind is no longer friend, but food. Now, it's up to a renegade priest named Genjo Sanzo, a monkey king named Son Goku, a lecherous water sprite named Sha Gojyo, and a sympathetic demon named Cho Hakkai. They embark on a perilous journey to the west to stop these demons from resurrecting Gyumao and restore the balance between humans and demons on Earth.
