And now we skip past the rest of the 闻太师 arc and go to the next major opposing army leader guy, 邓...somethingsomething and daughter.
After Nezha gets a black eye from the 邓whatisname's daughter, Yang Jian gets sent out to babysit the next kid who goes out to challenge the enemy.
And of course, stereotypically, no one ever listens to the calm-headed one.
To the rescue!
Yay for projectile weaponry... er... does this count as heat vision?
You know... I could've sworn the kid was only bonked on the head, not like crippled about the legs or anything. *iwhistle*
And thus Yang Jian proves that Sun Wukong totally plagiarized the whole "I'll turn into the nubile pretty girl and trick the bad guy into falling right into my hands" shtick. I have to say tho... the transformation sequence with the bad CGI made me wanna hurl. =_=
Off to get backup.
Interestingly, I think that's an actual girl over there and not a prepubescent boy...
It's kinda sad that among your best warriors/generals, only one of them looks post-pubescent. XD
That would be Yang Jian in the background pretending to be sharpening the execution blade. Yes, it's cheesy. Shp.
I actually didn't like this part of the show because of the whole rape-marriage thing... So let's move on, shall we?
Tell the truth, I forget what this conversation was about...
Facing off against another enemy fort...
I have no idea what Yang Jian is holding there. As far as I know in the canon he had no major artifacts to his name aside from his blade and his dog (yes his dog actually counted as an item tossed out of his sleeve half the time.) =_=
We're past all the major forts! What can possibly stop us now?
Scouts report Murphy's Law manifesting in their path. Oops.
Formations made by our master's master's brother wasn't in the contract, oh fearless leader.
Well apparently it is now. Feel the burn.
Just so you know, we're all filing for vacation leave since none of us are suicidal enough to actually try this formation ourselves.
Time to bring out the big guns. Or go crying to mommy. Er, grandaddy. Same dif.
Three generations of Kunlun daoists... ooOOooh...
Why am I in the back with the kids?
Cuz someone has to babysit.
I think I have an eye infection. Behold my blue-eye!
More heat vision...
Granddaddy 元始天尊 leaves
Finally, the last fort
Nezha is stung by needles in the back. No, seriously.
And somehow that translates to his hand needing to be held. Aww, poor baby.
*cough* You can let go now.
"Poor sod. Glad I'm not on the list to die."
"Er, I'm not, right? We didn't change that part of canon?"
"Of course not. Who else is gonna get me onto the throne grand vizier's chair?"
Ok, now that we've established how strong the enemy is by killing a major character and injuring another one, it's obviously Yang Jian's turn to walk up to their door and kick the stuffing out of them.
Oh wait, I forgot. We're talking about the guy who likes to use his wits to make opponents look stupid even more than Sun Wukong.
Poor sods who get to tie up someone who is capable of transforming himself & other people in the rain...
Singin' in the rain...
"Yeah, so they ended up executing a couple of their own people instead."
"You couldn't have replaced it with their leader's body?"
Yang Jian's impression of a rock spirit, looking suspicously like bad photoshop.
Back from rescue duty.
Which wasn't in the original canon.
The guy who gets to make nice with a vixen before his master goes buddhist doesn't get to complain.
