    There are actually 3 anime that are based on the same Story "Journey to the west"
    1. Saiyuki
    2. Dragon Ball
    3. Monkey Typhoon

    According to the story the travellers are a corrupt monk (yeah its true), monkey, a pig and a human.

    Saiyuki and Monkey typhoon maybe the closest to the characters but not the story itself

    Saiyuki
    Goku -monkey
    Sanzo - Monk
    Gojyo -Human
    Hakkai -unfortunately the Pig

    Monkey Typhhon
    Goku -Monkey
    Sanzo -Human
    Joe -Monk (he looks like a monk but he's a worker asobot)
    tongo - Pig

    The Saiyuki boys are mine, thanks. :]

    Aren't they all just gorgeous? Saiyuki isn't my all-time favourite Anime, but the boys inside sure make an impression on me! Bottom line is, I love Saiyuki. Especially with their horrible pasts and stuff. My favourite is Sanzo and Hakkai!

    No competition here. I don't think they're hot at all. And i don't like Sanzo AT ALL.
    He's an insult to the monk in the original story. But Hakkai's okay enough.

    Some differences between Sanzo and the monk in the original story:
    No.1: the monk DID NOT smoke
    No.2: he did not whack people with a fan
    No.3: he rode a horse, not a jeep
    No.4: he was more useless then Sanzo
    No.5: he DID NOT use a gun
    No.6: he was a proper monk
    No.7: he did not wear sutras around his shoulders
    No.9: he was quite incapable of killing a demon
    No.10: he was a lot nicer

    There's still a lot more but i couldn't possibly list them all out.

    Yes, Sanzo was a different monk, but that's the whole point of the story. They changed it, it wasn't meant to be a direct interpretion of the original chinese version of Journey To The West. In the merchandise/ cards..etc.. they label him as "The ill-mannered monk". They changed the story and the characters.

    well most of the anime and tv series and movies that are based on a book they mostly change it so it will fit more to the taste of the viewers and so the story will be understood more clearly

    ok in this case they've gone over board but heck thats they do

    You know, i'm surprised none of the chinese have complained about how Sayuki insults "The Journey To The West". After all, its one of their um... four big classics(?) I don't know what they're called in english so i did a direct translation from chinese. But i bet they're called something else.
