The road west is marred by the potholes from the past - Sanzo's adoption by Buddhist monks, Hakkai's life in a Catholic orphanage, and Gojyo's troubled relationship with his brother. But was it these childhood burdens that made them into the only men who could undertake this incredible journey? Or was it their previous stint in paradise that forged their eternal bonds?
After all, when an bored bureaucrat of the gods takes in a heretical monkey and joins forces with two other rebels of heaven, those are the kinds of things that keep friends together. Forever. For better or for worse.
