DO NOT UPLOAD TO ZEROCHAN OR ANYWHERE ELSE. From "Soul & Pepper". It's interesting to see that Minekura-sensei will randomly take illustrations she's done before and completely re-do them. Usually this happens with images she did in the late 1990's or very early 2000s. However, now this image from "Saiyuki Reload Blast" sometime around 2011-2012 is in fact a remake of a "Saiyuki Reload" image from around 2003-2004. It seems odd she'd take a less older image and remake it. If I ever get to meet her I would love to ask her reasoning behind that. Nonetheless, both images remain gorgeous, but I believe that something about this "Reload Blast" updated version shows somehow the four might be just bit more tightly knit together. If you're interested in seeing Minekura's original take on this look around page 11 of the Minitokyo Saiyuki gallery.
