***ANY COPYRIGHT ISSUE PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR PROMPT ATTENTION*** Here we have both the opening & closing themes for Monkey! The opening theme sets the tone for excitement, while the end theme, "Gandhara", is especially beautiful to close. Both pieces are by Godiego, composer Micky Yoshino. Extra trivia: Andrew Sachs (Manuel from Fawlty Towers) voiced the Horse.
Monkey (Jap: Saiyūki) wasn't just a show, it was a lifestyle. We used to have Monkey battles at school regularly. And we learned a lot from the show itself, mostly how to think from a different angle. The nature of Monkey was ... IRREPRESSIBLE!
Monkey was played by the fantastic Masaaki Sakai. Sadly, Masako Natsume who played Tripitaka died in 1985 from acute Lukaemia. She was chosen to play the male role because she embodied more of Tripitaka than the male try-outs. An exceedingly pretty woman also who was just finding her feet as an actor.
