I am convinced that Gojyo is a Sailor Scout in disguise. Why? He wears a large headband and calls out his weapon in sparkly blue light and the long red hair does not help at all.
Well, maybe in Saiyuki Reload only. Also, generally asking; Which Saiyuki series do you prefer more? Gensomaden or Reload and Gunlock?
I've been wanting to asks someone this for ages. Personally, I like Gensomaden Saiyuki, simply because I find it more shounen-ai hinty. And it was original Japanese. Unlike now, I'm watching the Saiyuki Reload dub (not the ADV one) on Animax. They mispronounce Sanzo's name (they say it as "Saenzo". I died. Literally). Goku makes oddly mature comebacks ("You could cut the sarcasm with a knife here" so, um, NOT GOKU) and Hakuryu has become something unpronounceable (I couldn't figure out the spelling). Oh and Yaone sounds tomboy and Kougaiji's name has been mangled just like Sanzo's. I want to cry everytime I see the dub. And I don't even want to mention their voices.
The only good thing is Kami-sama is done beautifully in character. Right down to the insane laughter. Kami-sama is their saving grace.
Saw the last episode of Cyborg 009 an anime that the US slaughtered with the English dub. I shudder. But I caught the last episode and OHMYGOD, the shounen-ai that never existed before appears. When 009 and 002 fall into Earth's atmosphere, they have the most intriguing conversation (which I later on commented that it was an unforseen love confession. Fangirl much, I know)
This is how it went
009: Jet? I wanna tell you that--
002: It's okay. I know. The same goes for me.
ME: Love confession w0ot!
I tell you it's like watching Cloud and Sephiroth. Or Kamui and Fuuma. Definitely Kamui and Fuuma. Those two turn anything innocent to full blown smut. Honestly. If you've never read the manga, you're missing out on some of the best shounen-ai experiences ever.
