This is Sha Gojyo, a half-breed (half-human and half-demon) or hanyou. This is the reason why he has red hair and red eyes. There are actually a lot of people who consider hanyou as unlucky, so they are shunned

Infinity by Hoshi Soichiro (Goku)

3. Infinity

This song also appears in Gensomaden Saiyuki Vocal Album Volume 1. From that album, it was Hoshi Soichiro (Goku) who sang this song.

A sample video of this song is featured to the right although it is the version with lyrics since the piano instrumental version could not be found.

However, as you can hear from listening to the song, it does sound wonderful even with the lyrics being sung especially since Goku has such a great voice. Also, you can hear the instrumental portions of the music and it sounds spectacular.

Now "For Real" doesn't actually appear in this music album. But a video of its instrumental piano version is available on YouTube and this version is terrifically good.
