This is the Japanse version of Journey to the west (or maybe I should say it's a parody loosely based on Journey to the west). Starring: Shingo Katori as Son Goku (Monkey King), Eri Fukatsu as Sanjo Houshi (Monk), Atsushi Itoh as Cho Hakkai (Piggy), and Teruyoshi Uchimura as Sa Gojou. In this version, Shingo the monkey likes to eat, Atsushi the Pig is greedy (and likes girls), Teruyoshi the (whoever he is) likes girls as well (and more so than the pig himself), Eri the Monk is played by a woman and I'm not sure if she's supposed to be a he or whatever but if it's a he, he's a crybaby. Ep 1 has guest star Takuya Himura as one of the youkai. I thought ep 1 was kind of funny so I plan to watch a bit more.
I know everyone likes visuals and I did intend to put up some screen shots but can't get into imageshack.
