There aren't many, but there are a few plausible shoujo-ai (female and female relationship) couples in Kazuya Minekura's Saiyuki. Kanan and Yaone were both stolen away by Hyakugan-maou's minions, both are strong women who are still rather timid in feeling, and I think they could have been fast friends. In fact, there's nothing stopping me from saying that they weren't -- who is to say that Yaone and Kanan didn't live in the same village? All we know about Yaone's past is that her father was an alchemist in their village, really. So here's my tribute to one of a very small number of people in this world who aren't in Saiyuki just for the bois (that and because I really like Kanan and Yaone X3;;). This was done for the Papercut Studios valentine's day project in Copic marker and Prismacolor coloured pencil (pencil crayons).
