Sanzo, Goku and Hakkai are out to find "God"--and Gojyo. At the same time, Gojyo climbs a seemingly endless stairway to heaven and is assailed by a very maternal monster. The gang finally catches up to Gojyo, and as luck would have it, they've also found "God." But this dangerous deity is no ordinary opponent, and the quartet must get serious before they get crushed.

Five stars for another great volume of Saiyuki! This was so great, I got a warm fuzzy feeling when Sanzo, Hakkai and Goku decided to go rescue Gojyo (so that they could kill him themselves for going off on his own) - these guys are such hard-asses, but they really care about each other. I guess it's true what they say, you can only treat your friends that way and get away with it! I was really moved when Gojyo broke down in tears on the stairway - and I laughed so hard when the stairway barrier ...more

That's my honey on the cover ^_^

This volume is pretty intense all around. The anger and frustration everyone is feeling over a multitude of things... well, it's hot of course but haha!! It's intense!! As a reader, my chest felt tight through most of the volume just wondering what was going to happen! I really like the Kami-sama arc A LOT!! Definitely one of my faves!

Chapter 47 title page that I loved:

Sanzo, Goku and Hakkai go after Gojyo to give him a piece of their minds for deserting them. He is currently trapped in a bubble at the mercy of the evil Sanzo who wants him as a new toy.

This is the first time we see our heroes lose a fight and it really dents their morale. Fantastic artwork as usual, punchy dialogue and rip roaring adventure. Great stuff. Looking forward to the big show down in the next volume!

I'm not fond of the Kami-sama arc if I'm honest, but it is interesting to see how the Sanzo party deal with absolute defeat... Not well, in case you were wondering ;-)!
Fantastic. The story with the god is serious and exciting. I'd forgotten Kou's weird transformation. Anticipating the finish of this arc...
