It's been 500 years after

the Monkey King's havoc in heaven

The Mercy Goddess proclaims

the Buddha's decree

and appoints Xuanzang,

a little monk from Chang'an

to go to the West

and fetch the Buddhist scriptures

Where is it over there?

I heard an old man say

it's called Double Boundary Mountain

It's used to be called

Five Elements Mountain

Five Elements Mountain

Holy monk! Holy monk!

Get down now!

Hold on, hold on!

What shall we do with the white horse?

So what do you think?

You're well-built. Why

don't you go save him?

- What? You take care then.

- What a nerd!

We won't meet again!

Mr. Tiger

This horse has a touching story

He was an imperial horse

but he's now in this tough

and long journey with me

And he has family, just like you do

So why not...

Hey there. I mean you!

Come closer! Closer!

Yeah, you see that?

Who are you?

Hey. Rip that rotten rag off!

Yeah. That's it!

But it's a charm

Rip it off!

I can't mess with a charm!

If you don't wanna be the tiger's food

just do it!

Golden Cudgel!

Naughty boy!

How have you been doing?

So you're that guy, huh?

Well, I guess not

The Goddess asked me to go with

a monk for fetching scriptures

I'm afraid you're mistaken, gentleman

I'm from the Great Tang

Dynasty in the East...

The Great Tang Dynasty in the East...

Yes! You're that guy

Since the Goddess said so

I'm the one to escort you to the West

Escort me?

I don't need it, I think

Speak louder!

No, thanks, gentleman!

You heard him, Goddess?

It's just he doesn't need me

It's not me shirking

Then I'm going off


What the heck is this?

Why can I not take it off?

The Goddess gave it to me

I've no idea, either

Baldy. Don't fool around

Take it off from me!

Stay still

There are words on it

Stop fidgeting

I can't see those words clear

Oh, it's Sanskrit

Seems I can't just read

- So?

- I have to chant

Come on sing it now! Thanks!


Could you tough it out?

Probably it'll loosen if

you endure for a while

Stop chanting

Stay away!

I'll jump off if you keep pushing me

Wanna die?

Won't be that easy

What on earth do you want?

Take this gold hoop off me now!

Or else I'm gonna strangle you to...

I said many times I have no idea

how to loosen this hoop

Wukong. The young monk here with you

was once a boy named Golden Cicada,

a Buddha's disciple

Today, he has become your master

You should protect him and respect him

Only till the day you get the scriptures

from the Thunder Monastery

will your golden hoop be loosened

There are no alternatives

I'm bringing those stupid scriptures back

The Goddess hasn't finished yet

Somersault Cloud!

In a heartbeat

Where is that monastery?


How could it be?

The Goddess asked me to tell you

There's no way to fly there

with one stroke like this

Every suffering on the

journey is predestined

Every step is a spiritual practice

- No way!

- This is how wonderful life is

What did you say? Every step for what?


Yeah, full of wonder

I wonder

Hey Goddess, where are you? Hello?


The Goddess can hear you

No need to be loud

Shut up!

Go away!

How dare you!

Give my horse back!



Isn't it wonderful?

If it's always so wonderful all the way

we could share the journey together

You've eaten our horse. I have to get even

So you acquiesce?

Bro Monkey

Good boy

What's with you? Just mount the horse

Don't expect I'll carry you

Gentleman, you may not

have to kill next time

shall we discuss before you do that?

Not a chance

Why don't you ride the horse?

Flying is so tiring, isn't it?

How come you're so wordy!

Can't you just shut up?

It's very late now.

White Bone is coming out to snatch kids

Dad, it's not scary at all

It's true

How much did we make today?

Let me check

Alright. Forget it. Let's close


Lady White... please don't! No! Lady White!

Don't get my daughter!

Please! Please don't!

Lady White! No!


So late at night

Still up?

How dare you!

After so much evil is done

you can't just always pass the buck to me

Everyone has mistaken me

Tell me. What am I supposed to do?

Madam, please spare me

I swear I won't do it again

I swear as well, that you won't do it again

We just can't go against our king's decree

Oh really?

So you go against me

You fear?

Then why not just go home?

I must get the scriptures just

because I have fear

What's that stuff about?

The truth

The truth about the world


There's only one way

to know about the truth

That's my Fiery Eyes

Aren't they scary?

Pervert! Pervert!


Naughty boy!

My friend

I have to say your monkey

is a really good breed

But he just looks... too ugly

You are not a monkey master

You are the scripture fetcher

Yes, I am

Here you are, finally

Bro Sha!


How come I'm so handsome?

How dare you, pig demon!

Don't hold up my business!

Hey. again?

Hey no! Cut it out!

Stop! No!

Won't you stop?


Do you envy me...

looking better than you?

You ran into me!

Are you blind?

Oh my gosh

Wanna go?

Cut it out! Cut it out!

I'm quitting, really

I'm so cute. Am I wrong?

One by one, You first


We are both waiting for

the scripture fetcher

under the guidance of the Mercy Goddess

We need to protect him

as his disciples all the way

My name is Zhu Ganglie

I've sworn to the Goddess that

I'll abstain from eating meat
