The Monkey King Vol. 1 (US Version)
*MATURE CONTENTS. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS ITEM IF YOU ARE 18 YEARS OR YOUNGER.
This is the story of the "The Monkey King", otherwise known as Saiyukiden Daienou. It is a Chinese story but with a gothic, anime twist.
Based on the 16th-century, Chinese fantasy adventure classic, Journey To The West (also the inspiration for Dragon Ball!) Katsuya Terada's take on the legend of the Monkey King is a savage, lusty saga that The Portland Tribune calls "a Buddhist version of Conan the Barbarian." He raised holy hell as the baddest ape in Ancient China until the Lord Buddha himself dropped a mountain on him! Now the Monkey King will get his parole with one condition-he must escort a Buddhist nun through the demon-haunted wastes of the Silk Road on an impossible quest: reach India and bring back a collection of sacred scrolls!
