Huiguo obtained the Tantric secrets abroad.

Of more than a thousand monks,

he says none are fit to be his disciples!

Have some melon!

One melon can't feed everyone.

I'll make some more.



It's sprouting! It's sprouting!


See that?





See that? Melons!

It's an illusion.

They're melons! We all can see them.

We've all been taken in.


Let's go.

Gentlemen- some melon?

I don't have money on me.

I sell illusions, not melons.

You saw through it, so no charge.

I'm sorry.

Old man-

only one melon was real, right?



Is that a Japanese accent?

My name is Kukai.

It's an honor. This melon is a gift.

Too kind.

What's dripping?

He got me after all!

Toss it, quickly!

Now it's turned back into a melon.

What a powerful illusion.

Now I might believe in a talking cat.

What was that guard's name?

Chen Yunqiao.

Hey, Yunqiao, slow down.

The girls don't wait for anyone.


Chen Yunqiao is the one in the middle.


Girls, where are you going?

Come with us!

Don't take my girl tonight!

You're all here.

We want our bonus!


Where are they going?

Huyu House-

The city's top brothel!

Are you still game?

Of course I am!

Hurry up, girls.


Yunqiao! Yunqiao!

Yunqiao! Yunqiao!

Pardon me!

I'm Yulian.

Why haven't we met before?

Yulian is new here.


This flower is crooked.

Let's go.

C'mon. You'll be mine tonight.

Sister Lixiang...

How weird.

This is the Tang of romance!

Aren't brothels forbidden to monks?

You're entering a brothel.

I'm here for the beautiful music.

Scribe Bai!

I got your gown back from the pawn shop.

Excellent. Pawn it again!


I see you're a regular.

But first time here with a monk!

It's you who looks like a regular!
