Four characters appears in Gaiden-ie in a different light: in terms of characters, relationships. No one ever imagined Sanzo for paperwork and Hakka - commander of the army (and concurrently sloppiness bookworm). Godzhё became more serious, and Goku... All the same light with darkness within the Absolute. Whoever they are and wherever are -their unity remains unchanged. And the decisions that they take actions that commit - terrible, sick, unbelievable, amazing... right. Team Sanzo (Gaiden and just people, gradually penetrating each other confidence and warmth, by force of circumstances tending to one goal) - those for whom you want to follow. Well,or at least like watching omniscient Bosatsu - sama.
