When you forge a

weapon, you need three things.

The right metal, temperatures

over 1,400 degrees,

and someone who wants to kill.

Here in Jungle Village,

we got all three.

Bring out the weapons!

Jungle Village.

A heartless place.

Ruled by many savage clans.

Constantly at war.

Me, I'm just a blacksmith.

Minding my own business.

And biding my time.

I never wanted to

make tools for killing,

but I made the sacrifice

for the woman I love.

Lady Silk.

She's a worker at

the Pink Blossom,

and my only refuge

in this hellhole.

Together, we had decided

to leave this place,

but it turns out that the

universe had other plans.

Fate twisted when Gold Lion,

the mighty leader

of the Lion Clan,

was summoned to

the governor's palace.

The governor gave him a mission

to protect the shipment of gold

that he was sending through Jungle

Village to his troops in the North.

Gold Lion accepted.

He gave his word.

But when it comes to money,

things get funny.

Gold Lion! Gold Lion!

Gold Lion was

betrayed by his own lieutenants,

Silver and Bronze.

Now, the only thing that stood

in their way was Zen Yi,

Gold Lion's favorite son.

But Zen Yi was

about to get the news

that would forever change

all of our destinies.

Chi Chi, I will never

leave your side.

And I will return

immediately home

to ask my father to

arrange our marriage.

Zen Yi! Zen Yi! Zen Yi!


I have terrible news from home.

It's your father.


You said you would

never leave my side.

Master, the horses are ready.

If I don't avenge my father's

death, we'll never be safe.



Brothers, I am truly humbled

to be your new leader.

Now, my Lions, we must

keep Gold Lion's word

to protect the governor's gold.

Our enemies have surely

heard of Gold Lion's death,

and it is my belief that the Wolf

Clan, protectors of the West Gate,

thinking we're vulnerable,

will attack.

Instead of waiting, I say we strike

first and take them by surprise.

Brothers, should we not

wait for Zen Yi to return?

We will definitely

need his strength.

I agree.

You agree?

Are we not the Lions?

Are we not the strongest?


I say we move with

power and strike now!


Put the fire out.

A dozen of these by tonight.

Three days.

Three days?

Why so long?

Hey! Never turn

your back on a wolf.

Or it will bite you in the ass.

For the weapon that you desire,

it's going to take three days.

Unless you want

some sh*t like that.

Two days or you're dead.


The Chinese have a saying.

"Dangerous men will

meet in our streets."

And so it was.

War raged between the clans,

and that meant pressure on

me to make more weapons.

And as word of

the gold shipment spread,

strangers suddenly appeared

in Jungle Village.

God bless you.

To my illness.


An English gent.

The gentlest.

Are you military?

How long did you

spend in France?

Long enough to recognize

a man of refined tastes.

You've come to the right

place to rest your bones.

Merci, Madame,

but I'm not here for rest.

I should like a private room with a

bath, a view over the main road,

a bottle of that liquor,

and three of your finest.

Only three? Subtle.

Well, to start with.

I don't want to appear greedy.

A man with much chi.

Prepare the South Suite

for our guest.

Please, girls, the gentleman

has just arrived.

Give him a chance to

choose his own pleasures.

Yes, you.

And you.

And her.

Sir, I'm afraid she's

with another customer.

Yes, but it's

the wrong customer.

"Journeys end

with lovers meeting,

"as every wise man's son

doth know."

My dear,

you are about to suffer what no

young lady should have to endure.


I seek no quarrel with you,

my stout fellow.

I am merely trying

to save this damsel

from what would be the most traumatic

experience of her young life.

If you'll excuse us.

It doesn't have to be that way.

It doesn't have to be

that way at all.


My name is Mr. Knife!

You may call me Jack.

I have come to your fine

village for a vacation.

I do not wish to be disturbed!

My lady.

Shall I have the other half of Crazy

Hippo delivered to your suite?

Feed him to your dogs. It

will make them taste better.

I was worried about you.

Bring me some

golden nectar. Quickly.

Darling, what's wrong?

I'll be fine.

Those men are savages.

Why do you work yourself

to death for their sake?

I don't do it for them.

I do it for you.

Another day, another dollar.

Lady Silk was happy, and we were

getting closer to our goal.

Meanwhile, Zen Yi was getting

closer to Jungle Village.

You bring us your

best food and wine.

Master, I think it might

be the crabapples.

Outhouse is back.

Thank you.

Poor X-Blade.

No blades, just an "X."

You'll be joining

your father in hell today.

Who sent you?

Kiss my ring.

Long live Silver Lion.

Mr. Ming is here.

We'll finish this later.

The 10 Rodents

couldn't handle Zen Yi.


you should have sent 20.

The government shipment

is only days away.

Fifty-thousand taels

of gold bullion.

Still, capturing it

won't be easy.

It's being escorted

by the Gemini killers.

If we hit the shipment

and the gold doesn't reach the

northern rendezvous point,

the government will

send in their forces.


And to make matters worse,

the emperor's secret emissary has

been sent here to assist the troops.

And not even I know

what he is capable of.

Or, for that matter, who he is.



Compliments of the house.

How kind.

Is everything to

your satisfaction?

So far, so good.

Shall I send up more girls?

What if I just cut

these ones in half?

If you damage my girls,

I'll damage your boys.

Good God, that hurts.

In a very pleasurable way.

What if I put the

baby's arm inside you?

Must be very good opium.

What are you looking at,

dirty little man?

Now, ladies, let me

have a quick look.

That is a good look.

Wet! You have been a

naughty, naughty girl.

You shall stay

tied up like that

till at least 6:

You wanna come?

Right, I think it's time

for some more games. Yeah.

I'll start over here

with the navy.

Things were

heating up in Jungle Village.

I was finishing the weapons

for the Wolves,

while they were

partying to a full moon.

Every dog has its night.

And Zen Yi, the X-Blade,

burning with vengeance,

was just one day away

from our village.

Sounds like company

is approaching.

Smells like Lions.

Zen Yi.


what are you doing here?

We've come to escort you home.

Chan, tie their horses

and bring them drinks.

Yes, master.

Silver Lion is no

longer the same. He's changed.

Your father wanted peace.

Silver Lion wants war.

As I figured,

a sheep in wolf's clothing.



Wolves? More like wet dogs.

You are lucky you only

have one customer.

No need to be jealous.

The Lion Clan killed every

member of the Wolf clan.

They now control the West Gate.

Everyone's so afraid

of these men. Are you?

I'm not afraid.

Well, you should be.

These men are

ruthless and vicious.
