Action Adventure
Paradise Raiders

A place called Paradise. It is the origin of civilization and faith. It is a peaceful garden where humans and monstrous creatures have coexisted in peaceful harmony throughout all time. Suddenly, the monsters become violent and begin to attack the humans.

This vicious change is the result of an experiment to revive the great monster, Gyumao (Bull Satan). Bull Satan has been confined for five hundred years. By mixing science and sorcery, someone started the forbidden experiment that brings this monster back to this world. Bull Satan's revival is imminent. His negative power begins to spread throughout Paradise. The monsters and beasts become wild and the entire world suffers pending disaster.

The resurrection of Gyumao/Bull Satan must be stopped. An apostle of the Celestial Heavens, Sanzo, is summoned to take on the mission of restoring peace and order in Paradise. Sanzo recruits his old comrades, Son Goku, Sha Gojyo Jo and Cho Hackai. The foursome has shared much joy and sorrow and together they have faced many challenging missions. Thus, the outrageous young warriors set out for a journey toward "Indara", a country in the distant west where Bull Satan is close to re-awakening.

It will be a journey filled with danger and difficulties. Hideous monsters and evil sorcerers await our heroes in the narrow trek of jagged mountains, behind the sand of barren lands and in the misty and eerie swamps. In order to save Paradise from destruction, they have to emerge victoriously through all obstacles and ultimately prevent the revival of Bull Satan.

Son Goku:
He is born from a rock emerging from the earth, glowing with a full aura. His major preoccupation is 'eating' and 'fooling around.' He never thinks of anything else seriously. Goku was imprisoned in a stone jail for 500 years without getting old because of a mistake he made when he was young. He is agile and tenacious in battle, using his elastic pole skillfully. Age 16. Goku is an impersonate creature. He looks like a perfect boy, but he actually is a kin to monsters and evil spirits.
Sanzo : (Missionary of the Celestial Heavens):
Sanzo is a typical depraved priest. He never hesitates to exercise anything prohibited to the priesthood. Yet, he has a great sense of leadership and a cool and thoughtful mind. He is looking for a keepsake of his foster father, Sanzo Senior, who lost his life in a great battle with the monsters. Sanzo is the only human among our four heroes. He wants to find the lost memories of the former Master Sanzo, who looked after him in the past and was killed by a demon. He possesses the Sutra of Dark Power to protect himself from the enemies of the world of darkness.
Sha Gojyo:
Sha Gojyo is an extreme feminist - always too nice and sweet to girls. Although he looks rather sloppy and loose like a jerk, he is actually a reliable guy who cares for his friends. Age 22. Sha Gojyo is an impersonate creature like Goku. He uses a stick with chains attached to it.
Cho Hakkai:
He is a gentle and soft-looking guy. Nobody knows whether he was born a "nerd" or whether he pretends to be one. It seems he has a secret past that he never reveals to anyone. He uses the martial art, "Power of the Spirit" when he is engaged in battle. He hammers his opponent with the spurring power of his condensed spirit. Hakkai is also an impersonate creature.
