On Wednesday, the official web page of Saiyuki Gaiden’s video anime series started streaming another promotional video for the upcoming volume 3 of the show. After last time’s trailer, that was about 14 seconds long, this new one is 129 seconds long. Trusting the shounen-ai link in the script and the pretty male characters, the authors are showing us some more of the dramatic side of the upcoming animation. This is an adaptation of one of the sequels of the classic manga by Kazuya Minekura (Bus Gamer, Arcana series) which was published from 1997 to 2002 in Square Enix’s Monthly GFantasy (月刊Gファンタジー) magazine.
The ending theme song, performed by Kokia, is included. Its title is “Hikari no Kata e” (Shinigami translation: “To the Light”)
