Sanzang Coming to the West

Prologue: "Five Elements Mountain: The Buddha's Apprentice"

Mash: Doctor, what is that? ...A roll of paper?

Dr. Roman: Yes. It's an ancient manuscript, like an old book. We call it a scroll.

Dr. Roman: Oh, how I love the smell of old books. They really have luster. (Sniff Sniff)

Mash: Ah... So that's your fetish, is it...

Mash: Excuse me. My questions were an invasion of privacy. From now on, I promise to ignore what I see.

Dr. Roman: No, I'm not some kind of bibliomaniac, okay!? I was asked to bring it from the warehouse, so I did.

Dr. Roman: This was an item brought into Chaldea and kept there because it was thought to be a precious artifact affiliated with a certain person.

Mash: That means it is a catalyst for summoning. You said you were asked. So, was it for some kind of experiment?

Dr. Roman: No, this was an unreasonable favor from a certain painter at the workshop— Oh hi, Fujimaru.

Mash: Good morning, Senpai. ...You're dressed a bit flashy, aren't you?

Fujimaru 1: The party is here, right?

Mash: Party? ...Here? I don't think any have been planned...

Mash: You were probably given the wrong information. ...Let's interrogate Caesar later.

Fujimaru 2: In that case, what kind of smell do you like, Mash?

Mash: Which part of the conversation did you hear!?

Mash: Let me see... Although I am still young and inexperienced, there are still smells I love, or I want to fall in love with.

Mash: The smell of soil, the smell of green pastures, the smell of fresh-baked bread. Fou, you smell a little like sunshine.

Mash: And, well, when I'm in your room, Senpai...sometimes... I feel dizzy...

Dr. Roman: Hmmm? I'm sorry for interrupting your conversation, but something is off. Somehow the system started by itself...

Mash: ...? I assumed that you were making preparations for a summoning. But you're right, something is strange—

Dr. Roman: This setup is completely backwards— Leonardo! What kind of joke are you trying to pull off!? Stop the experiment now!

Announcement: Unsummon Program, start. Due to an exception in processing, Coffin support is refused.

Announcement: Spiritron Conversion, start. Rayshift starts in 6, 5, 4...

Dr. Roman: Get away from there, Mash! You too, Fujimaru!

Mash: Senpai, please come over here! It's dangerous!

Fujimaru 1: It's weird, Mash! For some reason, I can't move!

Fujimaru 2: You really should have a good talk with Da Vinci sometime.

Fujimaru 1: !?

Fujimaru 2: ...

Fujimaru 1: ...Where am I?

Fujimaru 2: I'm stuck...between these rocks... I can't move!

A:???: Looks like you've regained consciousness. Are you okay?

A:???: Where is this, you ask? This place is north of Loulan, west of Hami. It lies at the border between the Great Tang Empire's realm and Gaochang.

A:???: We are at the foot of the Five Elements Mountain, where the peaks seem to be able to reach heaven. And you are under some heavy-looking rocks.

Fujimaru 1: Huh? Under the rocks!? Help me!

A:???: Of course, I'll help you right away! ...But you seem surprisingly okay? Oops, spoke too soon... Why is your face turning pale?

A:???: Oh. Sorry, sorry. I didn't mean to tease you.

Fujimaru 2: Is this some sort of kinky play?

A:???: Huh? ...Well, with composure like that, you're obviously no ordinary person. Still, you don't look like a demon to me either.

A:???: ...Yes! I need to make up my mind!

A:???: I'm certain that you must be the one that I've been looking for. The Buddha must have brought us together!

Sanzang: My name is Xuanzang Sanzang. —What about you?

Fujimaru 1: I'm a Master from Chaldea Security Organization.

Sanzang: Chaldea? Master? Hmmm... And you say your name is Fujimaru?

Fujimaru 2: Yo, I'm !

Sanzang: I love energetic disciples! ...Oops, you're not my disciple yet.

Sanzang: Okay, Fujimaru. First, let me get you out of there. Behold the blessing of the Buddha!

Sanzang: aryavalokitesvaro bodhisattvo gambhirayam prajnaparamitayam caryam caramano vyavalokayati...

Sanzang: ...Are you okay? Did you get hurt? Do you want me to get you some bandages?

Fujimaru 1: I'm perfectly fine.

Sanzang: —I see. I'm so glad! So? I bet you see me in a different light now, right?

Fujimaru 2: Everything is a bit foggy right now...

Sanzang: That's concerning. Okay, let's take a little break!

Sanzang: I'm sure you'll feel better while we talk. Speaking of which, it's time for my preaching!

Sanzang: All right! Now, let's start over.

Sanzang: Let me introduce myself. I'm Xuanzang Sanzang. Despite how I look, I'm a monk. A proper monk that follows the teachings of the Buddha.

Sanzang: I'm currently in the middle of a journey to the far western land, Tianzhu, under the decree of the emperor of the Tang Dynasty. As for my mission... Ummm...

Fujimaru 1: To get the precious scriptures?

Sanzang: What, how do you know? Oh no, I guess I was showing too much of my virtuousness...

Sanzang: —That's right, just like you've said!

Fujimaru 2: To orbs?

Sanzang: You mean to materialize the wish granter that could fulfill any wish by offering the blood of those seeking it?

Sanzang: Too bad, I won't be swayed by such an easy temptation. But, you're on the right track— Yes, I am collecting something.

Sanzang: As for what I'm collecting...

Sanzang: Scriptures! I have a duty to collect scriptures! Scriptures that can be found on the way to Tianzhu! But...

Sanzang: The demon I've subdued to guide me ran... I mean got separated from me. And my horse got eaten... I mean I gave it a break.

Sanzang: I've been lost... I mean fighting by myself for days and then... I ran into you! I was so scared...

Fujimaru 1: I see. Very virtuous.

Fujimaru 2: Maybe it was too soon for you to travel?

Sanzang: What? You got a problem with a virtuous monk like me!?

Sanzang: By. The. Way. Isn't it about time you tell me about yourself?

Sanzang: ...I see... Mm-hmm, mm-hmm. Incinerated Earth... Singularities with Holy Grails... Guardians of Humanity...

Sanzang: It's all rather grandiose and hard to believe, but... you're Fujimaru of Chaldea, which is from the future...

Sanzang: I believe your story. This must be part of the Buddha's guidance... I'm sure.

Sanzang: The Buddha exists beyond space and time. He could send a messenger from the future to the past.

Sanzang: So, how do you go back to Chaldea? Don't you have any tools to send an emergency signal?

Fujimaru 1: Actually, no.

Sanzang: You're lost! Oh my, so you're lost too! Good, good, we're rather alike, you and I!

Sanzang: ...Ahem. I mean, uh, now I know the reason behind our encounter, Fujimaru.

Fujimaru 2: I'm still not sure that I traveled to the past

Sanzang: Then again, you can't pinpoint your exact coordinates right now. In that case, we're just wasting time sitting here arguing.

Sanzang: When I become great, I will say this: Do good deeds, punish bad deeds, and listen to Sanzang.

Sanzang: So, Fujimaru? Become my disciple!

Fujimaru 1: ...Why?

Sanzang: Uh... I mean... I'm...still in the middle of the journey... And I've got a long way to go...

Sanzang: I've got no food... My tummy is beyond empty... But all worldly things are transitory... Anyway, I need a disciple!

Fujimaru 2: If you will make me your number one disciple.

Sanzang: Of course! Easy peasy! You are my number one disciple! Yay!

Sanzang: ...To tell the truth, I remember a little bit. I think I've experienced this journey to Tianzhu once before.

Sanzang: But I can't remember the specifics. Just like you don't know left from right here.

Sanzang: It's very strange, but this must be some kind of meaningful fate for the both of us.

Sanzang: This journey to the west is a trial from the Buddha. So he won't give you an answer. He won't do anything.

Sanzang: Most likely there's a reason for this. To send you back to Chaldea—

Sanzang: That's the challenge I was given. For you, it's a gift from on high.

Sanzang: So... From now on, you can call me “Master”!

Fujimaru 1: “Master” is taken, so... Mentor!

Sanzang: Ugh, I feel like I've been called that before... No, you must properly address me as Master!

Fujimaru 2: Don't overdo it, Sanzang-chan.

Sanzang: Ugh, just so you know, I won't take a rebellious pupil like you to nirvana!

Sanzang: Anyway, scriptures won't just fall into our hands. Come, let's head to the land in the far west, Tianzhu! GO WEST! GO!

Dr. Roman: Hey, Fujimaru! Are you here?

Mash: Senpai! Master! Please answer me!

Dr. Roman: This is not good. [♂ He /♀ She] must have moved. It will be hard to figure out the exact coordinates again...

Mash: Doctor! Can you at least send me to the coordinates where Senpai is!?

Dr. Roman: I'm trying to figure out why [♂ he /♀ she] got transported right now. It would be so much easier if we knew.

Dr. Roman: I'll do my best, of course. But I'm sorry, Mash.

Mash: Senpai...

Volume 1: "Kingdom of Tartars: Along on the Journey"

Sanzang: It's coming back to me now! I had three disciples!

Sanzang: Say, disciple! Do you happen to know about my past disciples?

Fujimaru 1: Are they a monkey, a pig...and a kappa?

Sanzang: A kappa? What's a kappa? No idea what that is... Kapa, kapapa...

Fujimaru 2: A black panther, a puppy, and glasses.

Sanzang: You mean, a dog, a monkey and a pheasant, right? Huh? Why do I know that...

Sanzang: Anyway, speaking of monkeys... Sun... Sun Wukong! My reliable number one disciple!

Fujimaru 1: So you had pupils before?

Sanzang: Oh... I'm sorry. I did say I was gonna make you my number one disciple, huh? My bad.

Fujimaru 2: I'm going to pretend I didn't hear anything.

Sanzang: ...Thank you for your thoughtfulness. You're so kind, Fujimaru.

Sanzang: But there's no need to worry! I'm sure I'll remember why I lost my disciples during our journey.

Sanzang: But this is a problem. A huge problem, perhaps.

Sanzang: I'm on a journey to Tianzhu, but I wonder why Sun Wukong isn't here.

Sanzang: Not just Wukong... But the other two pupils too... That's right, Zhu Bajie and Sha Wujing are not here either...

Sanzang: This must be a message from the Buddha, too. I mean, journeys are always so mysterious!

Fujimaru 1: The new number one disciple will take care of it.

Fujimaru 2: You have me now, right?

Sanzang: ...W-Wait a minute, what am I getting so flustered for!

Sanzang: I'm impressed that a new disciple like yourself can think like that! But that's prohibited here.

Sanzang: As a disciple, you must follow the Buddha's teachings and worship him. Be careful not to brag too much.

Sanzang: The law of the jungle applies to the journey to Tianzhu. If you are not careful, you will be eaten by demons.

Sanzang: But... well... considering the hardships we're going to face, having another disciple or two would be reassuring...

Sanzang: For example... Zhu Bajie...

B:???: Oink, oink.

Fujimaru 1: !?

Fujimaru 2: Oink?

B:???: Oink, oink. Oink!

Sanzang: ...What is this!? I'm hearing the squeal of a poor piggy...

Fujimaru 1: Could it be Zhu Bajie!?

Fujimaru 2: It came from the other side of the rocks...

B:???: I'm oink. Very oink!

Fujimaru 1: Oh, David, it's YOU!?

Fujimaru 2: Yeah, he's a pig. Definitely.

Sanzang: His name is... David? Just like Fujimaru, he was underneath a rock!

Zhu Bajie: No, no. I'm the cool Zhu Bajie. ...Well, here, at least. That's how things seem to have turned out.

Sanzang: Fujimaru's friend? Then he's a member of Chaldea, too?

Fujimaru 1: A pig? But you're a shepherd...

Fujimaru 2: Just ignore him...

Sanzang: No more indecisive attitude! Anyway, I'll rescue you from there right now!

Sanzang: aryavalokitesvaro bodhisattvo gambhirayam prajnaparamitayam caryam caramano vyavalokayati...

Zhu Bajie: I'm saved... Thank you! I couldn't do anything by myself. I thought I was going to become a monster's dinner.

Zhu Bajie: Right, but the situation was about to get much worse.

Zhu Bajie: I was starting to feel good about being squished. Whew, that was a close one, oink.

Fujimaru 1: Ah... You saved him...

Fujimaru 2: This guy can have fun anywhere, huh?

Zhu Bajie: It was truly painful! I want to emphasize that part! I mean, I can sue for damages later!

Zhu Bajie: No, let's refrain from talking about that now. So you are Xuanzang Sanzang... As beautiful as rumored.

Zhu Bajie: That dress is so beautiful and perfect for a wedding. Were you expecting this chance meeting?

Sanzang: Huh? This is an important kasaya given to me by the Buddha.

Sanzang: ...Ummm, don't confuse it with a wedding dress, okay?

Fujimaru 1: Are you going to ignore the fact she's basically a nun?

Zhu Bajie: Why? There's no problem, right? Anyway—

Fujimaru 2: Too bad, but she's ordained. She's not Abishag.

Zhu Bajie: Not Abishag? NO?! Such a waste! Well, anyway—

Zhu Bajie: It's true her beauty makes me want to eat her up!

Zhu Bajie: Hi, my name is Zhu Bajie David. Oh beautiful lady with long black hair, I will gladly become your disciple.

Zhu Bajie: Actually, there's another one stuck under the rock who's fit to be your disciple. He got involved in the same fashion as me.

Zhu Bajie: I guess calling out for help is just too much for his pride.

Zhu Bajie: Jeez. Pride won't earn you a penny, oink.

Fujimaru 1: You should have a little bit more pride...

Fujimaru 2: Do you know the word “shameless”?

Sanzang: We'll talk later! Show me where he is! We don't want the rock to crush him!

C:???: You have my gratitude for releasing me from this prison. My name is Li Shuwen, an assassin not worth mentioning.

Sha Wujing: It seems here I will be known as the third disciple, Sha Wujing... You may refer to me as so from now on.

Fujimaru 1: Master Li, are you sure?

Fujimaru 2: Becoming a disciple that easily?

Sha Wujing: Well, what's the difference between Servants and Chinese opera actors? It matters not.

Sha Wujing: How am I supposed to refuse the wish of a highly respectable monk? That aside—

Sha Wujing: It's such an honor to meet the Xuanzang Sanzang whom I grew so fond of from the fairy tales I read when I was young.

Sanzang: You don't need to praise me like that... I'm the one who should thank you. I hear you are a renowned master of the spear. How reassuring!

Sha Wujing: Of course. I will behead as many enemies as you'd like and offer you their heads just to serve you well.

Sanzang: ...B-Behead!? Heads? No, no, no! That's so unsettling! Don't kill for no reason! It's prohibited!

Sanzang: Oh no... We're surrounded!?

Zhu Bajie: It looks like the monsters we got rid of earlier have returned, oink. They brought their buddies to share their food they found in the wasteland.

Sha Wujing: It's just been one thing after another. But we can't let them eat us without a fight.

Sha Wujing: Is it all right, my master? This is self-defense, not some unnecessary killing.

Sanzang: Th-That's fine, go ahead, Sha Wujing! But try to disperse them first...

Sha Wujing: Understood. And how interesting. You're more virtuous than the Xuanzang I've read about!


Sha Wujing: Now then. We can't let Master walk on this long, difficult journey. We disciples are one thing, but she's another.

Zhu Bajie: Do you want to ride on my shoulders? I don't have a ponytail, unfortunately, but... Oink.

Sanzang: Uh, I wholeheartedly refuse. However, I do wish we had someone to carry our luggage... Hmm?

Fujimaru 1: There is something running wildly over there...

Fujimaru 2: That big red body... Is it a horse?

Sanzang: Red? Can it be...

Sanzang: The Tartars of this land are known for breeding great horses! Can we bring one over here?

Fujimaru 1: If that's your wish!

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]–!

Sanzang: ...Let's go home. There's nothing here. NO WEST.

Zhu Bajie: That's Lu Bu. Yup, Lu Bu. So the fourth companion is that fierce warrior.

Sha Wujing: I see, instead of the famed Red Hare, we get its rider instead. Well, it should not pose a problem for us. My master, please take a ride.

Sanzang: No! I can't, I can't! This horse is scary—!

Fujimaru 1: Whoa there! Whoa!

Fujimaru 2: What's in his hand? A scroll...?

Sha Wujing: ...Hmm?

Zhu Bajie: Despite your appearance, it seems you're quite meticulous. You're carefully guarding that, huh?

Zhu Bajie: [♂ Brother /♀ Sister] Fujimaru? Why don't you show that to the master?

Sanzang: ...Th-This is... the lost scripture! You were protecting it by yourself in this wasteland?

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]–!

Sanzang: I'm so sorry that I screamed. You are an amazing attendant, and an amazing horse!

Sanzang: It's scary, but it's part of my training! Oh magnificent red horse, lend me your shoulders!

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]–!

Zhu Bajie: On his shoulders!?

Zhu Bajie: Wait! There was an option to ride on my shoulders too, oink!

Sanzang: Hey, actually, this is nice. Are you used to letting people ride on your shoulders?

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]–

Zhu Bajie: I'm used to it, too!

Sanzang: What? The monsters had this scripture? And there must be more?

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]

Sanzang: ...Strange, very strange indeed. Also, Zhu Bajie, you need to shut up.

Sanzang: ...My mind is clearing as I read this scripture... Was that how they work? Oh well...

Sanzang: Sun Wukong! Sha Wujing! Bad Bajie! This is my commemorable first order!

Sanzang: We, the Sanzang crew, will collect the scriptures on our way to Tianzhu!

Sanzang: If you have any objections, I won't get mad, so come forward!

Sanzang: I'll put this golden headband around your head and start preaching! I'll make you change your mind! No one shall go against me!

Fujimaru 1: I guess refusal is not an option...

Fujimaru 2: Is Sanzang possibly... a demon herself?

Sha Wujing: Kaka! That's the great Sanzang I know!

Sha Wujing: She defeats every evildoer that stands in her way... even those who have reformed! A flawless beauty that troubled even the heinous three!

Sha Wujing: Fujimaru, let it go. This is the real Sanzang. You can't escape this fate.

Sha Wujing: We have no choice but to accompany her on this journey. Well well, this is getting interesting!

Fujimaru 1: So that's the kind of person she is!

Fujimaru 2: Must collect... scriptures!

Zhu Bajie: I don't think this is interesting, oink!

Volume 2: "Flat Peak Mountain: The Attractive Demon Sisters of the Lotus Cave"

Golden Horn: Silver Horn, it seems like this fearless, pitiful Tang monk has stepped into our territory: the Lotus Cave.

Silver Horn: Golden Horn, it seems like this cute and delicious-looking Tang monk was lured in by the aroma from the Flat Peak Mountain.

Golden Horn: If it's a man, let's melt him all the way to the bone. Taunt him, torture him, and then swallow him. Isn't that right, Silver Horn?

Silver Horn: Yes, Golden Horn. However, if it's a woman, let's welcome her warm-heartedly, play with her, befriend her, and then slowly drink her dry... Hehehe.

Both: Ah, I'm aching with excitement... I can hardly wait any longer.

Both: ...That aside, we sure are perfect for these roles, aren't we...

Sanzang: Wasteland as far as the eye can see... I thought we would run into some kind of oasis if we followed caravan routes...

Sanzang: Am I hallucinating!? But my throat is dry and my belly is empty... Oh, dear Buddha! Are you out shopping?

Fujimaru 1: Are we in the past?

Zhu Bajie: Are you asking if we Rayshifted to the era when Sanzang was alive?

Zhu Bajie: Well, I don't think that's the case, [♂ Brother /♀ Sister] Fujimaru.

Zhu Bajie: We've spent many days here already, yet you didn't see that ring of light in the sky, right?

Zhu Bajie: However, a constant supply of magical energy is needed for us Servants to exist. That supply is coming from somewhere right now.

Fujimaru 2: Are we in the world of “Journey to the West”?

Sha Wujing: Now, if you say you are being forced to play in the drama “Journey to the West,” then there is no place for us to be here.

Sha Wujing: There should be the real Sun Wukong, Zhu Bajie, and Sha Wujing right next to our master. What's the point of recreating the play with her alone?

Sanzang: ...Ugh.

Sha Wujing: My master. Do you have any ideas? Didn't you feel something by getting the scripture?

Sanzang: Yes... I remembered one thing.

Sanzang: I don't know why, but... I dismissed my disciples, Sun Wukong and the others.

Sanzang: All three have left my side.

Sha Wujing: ...I see.

Zhu Bajie: Did you lay them all off when they fulfilled their terms? Restructuring, eh? How cold and unsentimental.

Zhu Bajie: But I won't denounce my master. Because you can't be a manager unless you are realistic.

Zhu Bajie: Well, I wouldn't let them leave if it were up to me! They always say, “Make a pig fat, then eat it,” right!?

Fujimaru 1: That's true, oink.

Fujimaru 2: When are you getting fat then, oink?

Sanzang: Hmmm... You may be right... That's why they're not with me right now...

Fujimaru 1: Don't get so depressed.

Fujimaru 2: I'm sure they'll be back again sometime.

Sanzang: Do you really think so...

Sanzang: ...That aside, I'm not feeling good right now... It feels like someone punched me in the stomach...

Sha Wujing: No doubt because you haven't eaten anything. I guess we have no choice but to feed you a monster's flesh and blood.

Sanzang: Not that... Please don't...

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]–!

Fujimaru 1: He's saying there is a cave up ahead!

Fujimaru 2: Maybe there's water.

Sanzang: Hey...Fujimaru, ...just one thing...

Sanzang: Who is... Mash? You were calling that name when you were under the rock.

Sanzang: Fujimaru, is she important to you?

Fujimaru 1: ...A junior that's very important to me.

Fujimaru 2: I feel like we are together even when we are apart.

Sanzang: ...I see...

???: ...

Sanzang: Something smells sweet... The smell of fruits... This place, it must be a food storage!

Sanzang: That's my number one disciple! You have a great nose, I mean, intuition! Let's eat!

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]–!

Sanzang: Uh, what? A trap? That peach is rotten?

Golden Horn: Oh. I thought you'd be the one to eat it first and turn into a carrot. I guess it won't be that easy.

Golden Horn: Hehe, welcome to the Lotus Cave, Tang monk and her apprentices.

Silver Horn: I am so tired of waiting. But that monkey there looks ready to eat, all dehydrated like that.

Fujimaru 1: The evil-looking Gorgon Sisters!

Fujimaru 2: Wait a minute, they don't recognize us!?

Sha Wujing: The Lotus Cave, you said. That means they are the Golden Horned King and the Silver Horned King—

Zhu Bajie: ...They're so similar it's sad to even look.

Zhu Bajie: That's not good. It's not just they're way too into their roles, they're even turning back to being the goddesses that bring destruction upon humans.

Sha Wujing: I see... It seems you are aware of the enemy's True Name—

Sha Wujing: Fujimaru. I don't think I need to explain, but Golden Horn and Silver Horn will come with THOSE.

Sha Wujing: If you answer to your name, that gourd will suck you in and melt you alive.

Sha Wujing: The Purple Gold Red Gourd and the Suet Jade Flask. I cannot see them.

Silver Horn: There's no need for us to use Noble Phantasms. Once you're under our poison, you will call out our names and beg us.

Zhu Bajie: I see. So this cave is like a gourd's reservoir, and we are flies that fell on the surface of the water.

Zhu Bajie: Trying to fight the enemies in your own safe zone... How unscrupulous! Shame on you, you wicked women!

Golden Horn: It's not unscrupulous, it's negligent. But then, I can sense the same smell from you too, though.

Zhu Bajie: Humph, I don't think so, lady. Did you think I would get mad being provoked?

Zhu Bajie: If I'm in danger just by being here, then I will leave the fighting to the experts. I'm stepping back, oink.

Zhu Bajie: Come on, [♂ Brother /♀ Sister] Fujimaru! Please take care of them!

Sha Wujing: Of course. The main feature of “Journey to the West” is the tales of demon huntings!

Sha Wujing: Looks like neither Golden Horn nor Silver Horn are trained. Lord Red Horse and myself will suffice—!

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]–!

Golden Horn: Idiot. Sweet ladies like us wouldn't want to get blood blisters from spears or get the rusted metal smell of swords on us, would we?

Silver Horn: There is a lot of food and water here. And the scriptures you are seeking, too.

Golden Horn: But we will consume everything.

Both: Come! Melt them, unthaw them, dissolve them and drink them all up...

Both: —Bronze Horn!

Fujimaru 1: Bronze Horn—!?

Fujimaru 2: That's the first I've heard of it!?

Bronze Horn: Ummm... Right... I'm Bronze Horn...

Zhu Bajie: Great! Bronze Horn is outside of my strike zone! Don't hold back and defeat her!

Sha Wujing: ...No. I am a warrior, not a demon. This bond between these sisters is too tragic, I cannot bear to witness it any longer...

Sha Wujing: Honestly, I have lost my will to fight. My master, shouldn't we save Bronze Horn over there?

Sanzang: No, we can't. I can tell this is just another one of their tricks.

Sanzang: It's a conventional method to make us lower our guard. We can't buy into it.

Sanzang: Besides, my stomach is at its limit! We'll talk after we have taken their food!

Sanzang: GO, Fujimaru! Begin with that big girl first!

Fujimaru 1: It's to save my mentor, I have no choice!

Fujimaru 2: Girl...?


Sanzang: Well, I'm stuffed!

Sanzang: Golden Horn and Silver Horn escaped, but they didn't really do anything bad, so let's turn a blind eye for now!

Zhu Bajie: Wise decision. The spoils of war are more important right now. Oh, leave the management of the treasure to me. I'll make sure it's done right.

Bronze Horn: ...Victory is yours. Go ahead and do whatever you want with me. I don't care.

Sanzang: How admirable. You're willing to give up your old ways even though you're a demon! ...But then again, you haven't done anything wrong, have you?

Sanzang: Let's see, which should I have you do... 10,000 Hindu squats or copying the Heart Sutra 10,000 times...

Sanzang: You look fit already, so maybe copying the Heart Sutra will be a good punishment.

Bronze Horn: Well then, I will copy the sutra. Yes, copying sounds good. I'm not good at that.

Sanzang: Okay! Then I'll write you a recommendation letter to the librarian at Daci'en Temple! Study hard!

Bronze Horn: Thank you so much. Personally this is the best thing ever!

Sha Wujing: Bronze Horn... No, I shouldn't say anything now. It's better than being turned into some kind of demon king.

Fujimaru 1: My mentor. Here is the scripture.

Fujimaru 2: Sanzang. The scripture.

Sanzang: Um... Yes. I see, so you've done your job.

Sanzang: I was a little worried, but it seems this time around my disciples are hard workers!

Sanzang: Wukong, Wujing, Bajie! Thank you guys! Now, let's continue with our journey to Tianzhu!

Volume 3: "Fire Cloud Cave: Sage King, Red Boy"

Sanzang: Wow, the wind feels so good! We are finally done with the desert area... Now it should be peaceful for a while!

Sanzang: This whole area looks familiar, too... Now I remember.

Sanzang: Right. And I was thinking... We just need to avoid every enemy base from now on!

Sanzang: I pretty much already know the locations!

Zhu Bajie: That's an excellent plan, my master. It's good to be able to relax, oink.

Sha Wujing: By its very nature, I do not think a journey of hardship given by the Buddha would be done in by such pretentiousness...

Sha Wujing: —Hmm!?

E:???: Wait, wait, wait a minute!

E:???: You must be Sanzang and her followers! Right!? I'm not gonna let you go any further! (HAH)

Fujimaru 1: We've got a sloppy one here.

Zhu Bajie: Now, now. Let's follow the protocol and ask for her identity.

Fujimaru 2: Let me ask you just in case, who are you?

E:???: How dare you ask me that!

Red Boy: I am the protector of the Fire Cloud Cave in Withered Pine Valley: Red Boy, the Boy Sage King!

Red Boy: Oh, damn, I said my name first! But it's no problem! (HAH)

Sanzang: Red Boy... You have reformed and surrendered yourself to the Bodhisattva... Why do you stand in our way?

Red Boy: Because my father will praise me! ...If I return home with your heads, that is!

Sha Wujing: Your father must be the Ox-Demon King. According to the story of Journey to the West, that is.

Red Boy: Hey, call him by his proper name! He's the Great Sage Who Pacifies Heaven, the King of Great Strength, the Nine-Headed Ox-Demon King!

Red Boy: Oh, damn, I said it again! But that's fine! My father is cool, anyway!

Fujimaru 1: I feel for your father...

Fujimaru 2: That whole family is messed up...

Sha Wujing: Red Boy is supposed to kidnap Sanzang through disguises and other tricks. Are you okay with all this?

Red Boy: Humph. The story is meant to be changed. I'm not willing to lose from the beginning!

Sha Wujing: I see. Short-tempered, but quite eloquent.

Zhu Bajie: Hmm, Saber of Red's father... In other words, you're part of the Altriaverse.

Zhu Bajie: If that's the case, I don't know if it'll be blue or white, but I think I have an idea who this “father” is.

Fujimaru 1: I don't think so. Not at all.

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]–!

Zhu Bajie: Red Horse agrees, too. There are just too many.

Fujimaru 2: And who do you think it'll be?

Zhu Bajie: If it's the Ox-Demon King...

Zhu Bajie: “Only the ones who ate roast beef with tears in their eyes know the true taste of beef! Cow Saber!”

Zhu Bajie: —and such? Oh, I'm so sorry. Please continue?

Sanzang: Hmm, I can die in peace! I've never seen such an inspirational attitude!

Sanzang: What a graceful opponent she is... I think I can get along with her pretty well!

Sanzang: But it's too bad. Even if you were a friend, I'll crush you if you get in my way. That's my attitude!

Sanzang: Get ready! I will go dhūtatatatata on you and eliminate you!

Sanzang: I'll give you a chance to reform yourself afterwards! I mean, we're already halfway friends!

Red Boy: Are you serious, really!? You're really good at making friends, huh!?

Red Boy: But, sorry, I won't go easy on you even if we were friends. Because I'm Red Boy, the beloved son of the Ox-Demon King!

Red Boy: Sanzang! I'm going to take you as an offering to my father!

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]–!

Sanzang: Whoa, you scared me. I'm still not used to it... —Are you ready, Fujimaru!?

Fujimaru 1: Of course!

Fujimaru 2: Sure! I don't think she'll hand it over without a fight!


Red Boy: Dammit, fine! You won! Here's the scripture! Take it and get out of here!

Sanzang: Wait a second, Red Boy. No, Mo Boy!

Red Boy: Mo Boy!?

Sanzang: Where do you think you're going? You know that neither the Fire Cloud Cave nor the Sky Scraping Cave is that way.

Red Boy: Where I go is none of your business.

Red Boy: Since I just lost to the heinous Sanzang group, I'm just gonna hide until things die down.

Sanzang: ...If you want to see your father so much, how come you don't go home?

Sanzang: You adored your father so much!

Red Boy: I don't adore him, I HATE him!

Red Boy: Anyway... I can't go back to that miserable house now.

Zhu Bajie: You are a runaway? I see, you wanted to defeat us so you could go home with pride.

Zhu Bajie: Still, your father did raise an obnox– sorry, kind person like you. You don't need to bring him any gifts, oink!

Zhu Bajie: I'm sure he will welcome you with open arms. Come on, go home now and take us to where the treasures are, oink!

Red Boy: You're making it sound nice, but you're really annoying, you know!?

Red Boy: Not only that... While my father may be really cool, my mother is...

Red Boy: She's like a dump truck with busted brakes, to put it mildly...

Red Boy: She's just extremely scary... My dad is usually tough, but even he's kinda whipped by my mom...

Red Boy: If you are going to proceed, be careful, Sanzang! It's better for you not to get involved with that woman!

Volume 4: "Flaming Mountain: That Mountain is Very Fun!"

Sanzang: Guys! Those mountains there must be so much fun!

Fujimaru 1: What is it, all of a sudden?

Fujimaru 2: Hey, don't jinx us like that.

Zhu Bajie: ...? Our master seems to be very hyper. I wonder what's up with her?

Sha Wujing: We defeated Red Boy. In that case, our next big obstacle is the Flaming Mountains.

Sha Wujing: ...On a different note, my master... We are being followed.

Sanzang: Did you sense their presence? That's fine. It's natural that we're being targeted by demons.

Sanzang: It's actually rather convenient for us. We can lose them in the Flaming Mountains up ahead!

Zhu Bajie: ...Hot... It' Oink... [♂ Brother /♀ Sister] Fujimaru, to be honest...

Zhu Bajie: Despite my appearance, I can't stand the heat... It's like I'm going to get roasted...

Sha Wujing: Yes... These evil mountains are worse than expected.

Sha Wujing: The flames here don't extinguish with rain, nor do they burn out. They say they can even melt the toughest iron.

Sha Wujing: No wonder Servants, much less normal humans, would want to avoid this place...

Fujimaru 1: It's like hell on Earth...

Fujimaru 2: Don't tell me...

Sanzang: Of course! I mean, those mountains are definitely interesting!

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]–!

Zhu Bajie: My master, he's saying, “It's not just about having fun!” Oink!

Sanzang: That's because you haven't had enough training! Perfect, let's earn you some Training Points right now!

Sanzang: This is the Buddha's providence! You just need to get used to hardships!

Sanzang: We can't get to Tianzhu without crossing these burning mountains! Never!

Fujimaru 1: A-Any specific plans!?

Sanzang: Don't worry about it.

Sanzang: Aside from the demons, I too had anticipated these Flaming Mountains.

Sanzang: I've piled on merits during my journey to acquire scriptures, so I can walk freely on fire.

Sha Wujing: The ascetic exercise of fire-walking, huh?

Sanzang: This hellfire, too, was once just a leaping flame from the Eight Trigrams Furnace up in heaven.

Sanzang: If it's a trial from the Buddha, this fire will surely die if I walk through it!

Fujimaru 1: ...I wonder if it really will be that easy?

Fujimaru 2: I have a bad feeling.

Sanzang: Just watch. ...Although I might need some time!

Sanzang: (Inhale... Exhale...) (Inhale... Exhale...)

Zhu Bajie: I wanna see♪ how brave our master is♪

Sanzang: (Gulp)

Sha Wujing: ...She went for it. She's really walking on the flame...

Zhu Bajie: She's gone. I didn't think she would really do it, oink.

Zhu Bajie: But still, speaking from my experience as a roasted pig... Even if you can walk on fire, there's still the intense heat and smoke, you know?

Sha Wujing: Ah! You're right! I should have thought about that!

Fujimaru 1: We have to save her!

Fujimaru 2: Run, White Dragon Horse! Bring her back here!

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]–!

Sanzang: Cough...cough cough... Ugh... I thought I was gonna die...

Sanzang: Apparently, flesh burns even if it's not touching the fire... So that's what it means to smoke something...

Sanzang: If I wasn't wearing the Tathagata's kasaya, I would have turned into coal...

Fujimaru 1: W-Was it fun?

Sanzang: Beyond uncool... These mountains were not fun at all... (Sniff)

Fujimaru 2: Don't make us worry!

Sanzang: I'm... I'm beyond sorry... I have learned my lesson...

Sanzang: But...

Sanzang: It's different... It's completely different! They're not the Flaming Mountains I know!

Sha Wujing: What do you mean, my frizzy-haired master?

E:???: ...pai...Senpai...are...there...!?

Fujimaru 1: I hear a voice!

Fujimaru 2: Mash!

Mash: Oh...thank goodness... I've been waiting so long, Senpai!

Mash: Doctor! Doctor! Please come to the Command Room immediately!

Zhu Bajie: Oh. A transmission from Chaldea?

Mash: The line's very unstable... I will put it briefly before the signal cuts off!

Zhu Bajie: ...Oh.

Zhu Bajie: No, it's nothing. You just talk with them, [♂ Brother /♀ Sister].

Sha Wujing: Yes, take your time. We'll cover you.

Sanzang: Those are...the demons that we drove off in the mountains!? They're coming this way...

Fujimaru 1: Why are we being attacked now of all times!

Fujimaru 2: I'll leave it to you, my fellow disciples!


Fujimaru 1: ...I think I got the rough idea, Mash!

Mash: Yes, Senpai.

Fujimaru 2: Noted. So, what does the Doctor say?

Mash: The Doctor is here too, but he's a little busy at the moment!

Mash: So I will relay the message for now!

Mash: ...And that was the report on the summoning experiment, and the analysis on this unexpected incident.

Mash: The situation is not resolved yet. We can't let our guard down.

Mash: However, I'm surprised... To think there would be this much time lag between us!

Sha Wujing: It has already been a month since we first departed from Tartar territory.

Mash: On our side, it's only been four days since the accident —Oh...

Dr. Roman: I'm still detecting Servant readings around the Flaming Mountains. I even picked up traces of potent Ether.

Dr. Roman: I suspect some kind of crazy experiment with magecraft. It must've been conducted by a high-ranking Caster as well.

Fujimaru 1: That's probably...

Fujimaru 2: A mage that can hover over the Flaming Mountains?

Blavatsky: Xa-xa-xa-xa-xa-xa-xa-xa!

Blavatsky: Great! Eternal flame of Sanat Kumara! I will boil down this Dagda's Cauldron like it was jam!

Fujimaru 1: A UFO!?

Fujimaru 2: It's shooting a beam into the volcano!?

Zhu Bajie: —I don't know who's been summoned, but I'm sure she's a troublesome Servant, oink.

Sanzang: I'm at a loss for words, too. But I'm sure this is also the Buddha's unwavering will.

Mash: Xuanzang... Sanzang? I see... so you are a woman!

Mash: Oh no... The signal is unstable... The communication... I can't...correct...time difference...

Dr. Roman: Fujimaru! Make sure you tell Sanzang what we talked about.

Dr. Roman: Also tell her... that she herself is the key!

Zhu Bajie: The transmission got cut off again. I wonder when we will be able to communicate with them again.

Zhu Bajie: They seem to be having difficulty bringing us back to Chaldea.

Zhu Bajie: I'm pretty sure it's because Mash is not here. She would normally have set up the summoning circle for us.

Sha Wujing: ...We cannot afford to turn back now, either.

Sha Wujing: The idea of heading to Tianzhu and being at the mercy of Buddha's guidance doesn't sound too absurd anymore.

Sanzang: Eh... So you agreed to travel with me half-heartedly?

Zhu Bajie: Hmmm... For Shuwen, he's content as long as he gets to fight powerful enemies.

Zhu Bajie: Maybe I'm the same? But what about [♂ Brother /♀ Sister] Fujimaru?

Sanzang: you think? Fujimaru?

Fujimaru 1: There must be light at the end of this tunnel!

Sanzang: —Of course! I won't give up after only one or two lifetimes!

Sanzang: Because this is my story! Thank you, Fujimaru!

Fujimaru 2: The key must lie within the scriptures we gather.

Sanzang: The skinny guy from Chaldea said the same thing. In that case, then I'm truly dancing on top of the Buddha's palm...

Sha Wujing: —Brothers, wait.

H:???: The Flaming Mountains... They are a test.

Sanzang: Uh!?

Zhu Bajie: Oh, a new face? At any rate, not one we have seen in Chaldea.

Fujimaru 1: Is that the one who's been following us?

Fujimaru 2: Twintails and a Chinese dress?

Sanzang: ...Ugh... You are... Ugh... I feel like I can almost remember you...

Sanzang: Why? It's so frustrating! This intense feeling of déjà vu is suffocating...

H:???: Impossible. Can not remember.

H:???: That memory. Inside. This scripture.

Sanzang: !?

H:???: —Lamentable. Xuanzang Sanzang. Once pure and holy. Currently despicable. Mediocre woman.

H:???: No will to sacrifice thyself. Bereft tolerance and benevolence. Know there is... no shortcut to Tianzhu.

H:???: Simply put. You. No longer fit as Qitian Dasheng's master.

Sanzang: Uh! (Shocked)

H:???: Chat. Completed.

Fujimaru 1: Twintails gave her a lecture...

Zhu Bajie: You're wrong, [♂ Brother /♀ Sister]. If the hair doesn't reach the shoulders, it's more appropriate to call it “pigtails,” oink.

Fujimaru 2: Flying away on wheels... I'm jealous.

Sha Wujing: That person might appear collected, but in truth, she was agitated to the point that she abandoned her role as an observer and interfered...

Zhu Bajie: Yeah. She seemed like she knew our master well... Well?

Sanzang: To be honest... I can't quite remember...

Sha Wujing: I see. Your memory has been locked away. However... I have an idea as to who she really is.

Sha Wujing: That flaming spear must be the Fire-tipped Spear... And those bangles she wore must be the Universe Ring...

Sha Wujing: In addition, her young appearance... Although she does speak in a strange tone...

Sha Wujing: It appears that she might be Prince Nezha, the Marshal of the Central Altar— One with a name as well-known as Qitian Dasheng, Sun Wukong.

Sanzang: Ne...zha...

Sha Wujing: Don't underestimate that young warrior. She's a doll made entirely of Paopei.

Sha Wujing: In Chaldea's terminology, she would probably be called a Noble Phantasm Human. I feel I must cross swords with that warrior.

Fujimaru 1: Sensei's bad habit is back...

Fujimaru 2: Didn't it seem like she was worrying about Lu Bu?

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]–?

Zhu Bajie: She left with the scripture that contains the master's memory.

Zhu Bajie: So we came up dry this time. It seems like we can't cheat.

Zhu Bajie: There's always someone watching... I guess that's the same in every country.

Sanzang: ...Banana Leaf...Fan...

Sanzang: I remember now! Yes, the Banana Leaf Fan!

Sanzang: Listen, we took the wrong steps. We need a Noble Phantasm... An item to cross the Flaming Mountains!

Sanzang: We need the Banana Leaf Fan! Princess Iron Fan's Noble Phantasm!

Fujimaru 1: Banana Leaf Fan?

Fujimaru 2: Princess Iron Fan?

Volume 5: "Banana Cave: Demonic Lady, Princess Iron Fan"

Sanzang: In order to extinguish the wild flames of the Flaming Mountains and get to Tianzhu, we definitely need the “Banana Leaf Fan.”

Sanzang: And Princess Iron Fan, the one who resides in the Banana Leaf Cave, is the wielder of said fan.

Zhu Bajie: A world-renowned beauty, also known as the Demonic Lady, a Rakshesa. I wonder what kind of beautiful madam she is?

Zhu Bajie: Yeah, an older married woman doesn't sound bad. Anyway, a beautiful lady is beautiful even if she is someone else's wife.

Sanzang: Hey you! Don't get excited about the “someone else's wife” part. Keep it to yourself!

Sanzang: Anyway, it's impossible to predict what kind of people we'll meet on this journey...

Fujimaru 1: Based on what Mo Boy said, I can take a guess...

Red Boy: No joke! No joke! My mom is so scary!

F:???: Red Boy.

Red Boy: GAH! Mom! Sorry, I was eating some potato chips!

F:???: Correction. You will address me as “Mother,” or else I will cut that infected tongue out.

Red Boy: Sorry, Mom! Please don't cut my tongue off!

F:???: I will tolerate staying out overnight without permission... but did you wash your hands when you got home?

Red Boy: I did! Very thoroughly for about five seconds! Then dried them with the Banana Leaf Fan!

F:???: That explains the mess in the bathroom. What happens if those germs get spread around the castle?

F:???: I've told you to carry disposable towels with you so many times... Hmmm? Did you rinse your mouth after returning home?

Red Boy: Of course! For about three seconds while drinking cola!

Red Boy: Hear my beautiful voice. We have a similar voice, right? Genetically mother and child!

F:???: ...Red Boy. What's that scratch on your cheek?

Red Boy: (Gasp)

Red Boy: Just a scratch! It's nothing! Just put some saliva on it and—

F:???: —It seems I need to teach you a lesson. To the medical room. I will treat you myself.

Red Boy: Ahhhhhh, I'm sorry, Mom!

Red Boy: I don't wanna wash my face in a bucket of peroxide again!

Sha Wujing: ...It's kind of like an army torture scene.

Zhu Bajie: Too much enthusiasm for education... Kids grow up open-minded when left free, but...

Sanzang: Either way, she's nobody's fool... We did beat Red Boy, but didn't kill him.

Sanzang: There's no reason Princess Iron Fan would get mad. I'm sure we can just talk it out!

Princess Iron Fan: Rejected & please leave now.

Sanzang: You wouldn't even consider it!?

Princess Iron Fan: There have been no reports of anyone falling ill around the Flaming Mountains.

Princess Iron Fan: Those flames must have strong anti-bacterial effects.

Fujimaru 1: But no one is alive either!

Fujimaru 2: Oh, come on!

Princess Iron Fan: I am quite offended that you would criticize my charity work.

Princess Iron Fan: There are many uses for the Banana Leaf Fan.

Princess Iron Fan: However, I cannot lend it to you for a trivial reason like extinguishing a mountain fire.

Fujimaru 1: ...By the way, where is the Ox-Demon King?

Princess Iron Fan: Ox-Demon King... My partner is not here in this castle. He must be wandering about...

Princess Iron Fan: Even Red Boy is following his bad example... My patience is just about running out.

Fujimaru 1: It's not a good idea to take your frustration out on your son.

Princess Iron Fan: My principle of education is perfect! I even allow my son independence!

Fujimaru 1: Just allowing?

Fujimaru 2: Are you tolerant?

Princess Iron Fan: Um... Well...

Princess Iron Fan: ...Fujimaru, was it? Did you come here to provoke me?

Princess Iron Fan: I'm always furious... at this unsanitary world... at the fact that accursed disease runs rampant everywhere.

Princess Iron Fan: Yes! Travelers like you are especially beyond help!

Princess Iron Fan: Greedy for repletion, knowledge, and pleasure; living as you desire. You would dig up buried relics and wake dormant indigenous diseases.

Princess Iron Fan: Surely you're going about spreading a pandemic of pallidness. You're nothing but a walking compost!

Zhu Bajie: That's not true! I simply bought some buns, and threw the leftovers on the street!

Zhu Bajie: It's charity for the animals. I litter. With no hesitation.

Princess Iron Fan: —I am so careless. There is one facility this mountain is missing.

Princess Iron Fan: The chef with the red cape said, “the pig is a very useful domestic animal. The only part you can't use is its scream.”

Princess Iron Fan: Let's test those words. Don't worry, I'm a nurse.

Princess Iron Fan: I'm used to people writhing and screaming in pain. Scream like you could tear up the sky!

Zhu Bajie: Phew, good response to provocation, deathly nurse! I'll leave the rest to you, [♂ Brother /♀ Sister]!

Zhu Bajie: I don't get along with ladies who don't understand humor!

Sanzang: Fine, I'll accept the challenge! You guys, I'm counting on you!


Sanzang: So...this is the Banana Leaf Fan? Looks pretty different than the legends...

Sanzang: Doesn't it a certain holy sword? Is it even okay for a monk to hold a sword?

Sanzang: It is said that in order to cut the root of the fire from the Flaming Mountains, one needs to fan the flame forty-nine times. But she said that since this is EX-ranked, you just need to fan it once.

Sha Wujing: Princess Iron Fan handed out the scripture she possessed obediently. I cannot fathom the reason that only the Banana Leaf Fan would be a fake.

Zhu Bajie: Anyhow, once we use it, we'll know if it's fake or not, oink.

Sanzang: That's true. I'll try! Here we go—

Sanzang: Ex...calibanana Leaf Fan!

Sanzang: Amazing! It's gone! It blew all the fire away!

Sanzang: So all that fire-walking training for nothing? Well, never mind!

Sanzang: Fujimaru! We did it!

Fujimaru 1: Um, so only the Ox-Demon King is left?

Fujimaru 2: Let's hope the Ox-Demon King is understanding.

Sanzang: —Yes!

Volume 6: "Sky Scraping Cave: Great Sage Who Pacifies Heaven, Ox-Demon King"

Ox-Demon King: I am the eldest of a fraternity of demon brothers whose names are renowned even up in heaven— I am the Nine-Headed Ox-Demon King!

Ox-Demon King: Hereafter, you may refer to me as Ox-Demon King. No need to prostrate yourselves. Just relax.

Sanzang: —Yes, Your Majesty.

Sha Wujing: ...

Zhu Bajie: ...

Fujimaru 1: Um... Ox? Cow?

Ox-Demon King: You— What are you looking at? My eyes are up here.

Ox-Demon King: I must commend you for your efforts. You traveled all the way from Tang, even crossing the Flaming Mountains...

Ox-Demon King: ...Rumor has it that my son, Red Boy, caused you trouble?

Ox-Demon King: No need to tense up. I am not being sarcastic.

Ox-Demon King: You may laugh at me for being a bad parent.

Sanzang: Not at all Oh, by the way.

Sanzang: of forcibly borrowed this from your wife.

Sanzang: The Excalibanana Leaf Fan.

Sanzang: We understand it is... your prized possession. We would like to return it now.

Ox-Demon King: —Yes, you have my gratitude once again. Then let me move on to important matters.

Ox-Demon King: O eminent Tang Monk, Xuanzang Sanzang— This is the scripture that has been entrusted to me.

Ox-Demon King: And this is the other scripture Nezha gave me when she visited this castle earlier.

Fujimaru 1: Nezha did that?

Ox-Demon King: You may have both of these scriptures. It is the Buddha's will.

Ox-Demon King: Meaning, your journey ends here.

Sanzang: ...Wh-What did you say?

Ox-Demon King: I said it's the Buddha's will. You now have all six scriptures.

Ox-Demon King: —The Buddha gave me a mission.

Ox-Demon King: The Buddha said he sealed your memory of the realization of the transient nature of the five desires into the scriptures scattered along the trip.

Ox-Demon King: The five desires are sights, sounds, scents, tastes, and tactility.

Ox-Demon King: In other words, the attachment that arises from contact with the eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and body.

Ox-Demon King: This kind of explanation probably sounds unnecessary to you, though, right?

Fujimaru 1: One, two, three, four, five... What's the last one?

Ox-Demon King: The last of the six scriptures is “meaning.” The attachment produced by the heart.

Ox-Demon King: Ending your journey here and being satisfied from the bottom of your heart will recover the enlightenment you lost—!

Sanzang: What... What? Wait. Wait!

Sanzang: My journey doesn't end here! It still continues!

Sanzang: I'm going to Tianzhu! That's why I've traveled this far!

Ox-Demon King: You already have all the scriptures!

Ox-Demon King: Do you not understand!? It is the Buddha's mercy, Xuanzang Sanzang.

Sanzang: But what'll happen with them? What's going to happen to my dear disciples?

Ox-Demon King: Your apprentices will continue on to Tianzhu. That will bring them back to the world they belong to.

Ox-Demon King: You, too, must have a place to go back to.

Sanzang: ...A place to go back to... My house in Chang'an...

Sanzang: ...No! I want to continue my journey!

Sanzang: I haven't accomplished anything! I appreciate the scriptures, but that's not it!

Sanzang: I'm not ready to recite them correctly. I'm not there yet!

Ox-Demon King: How unreasonable you are...

Ox-Demon King: The scriptures of the Buddha possess an inherent value to the common folk. They do not care who is reciting them

Ox-Demon King: If you cannot realize that, you sure are far from enlightenment.

Ox-Demon King: No need to worry, though.

Ox-Demon King: Let me blow your attachment away and send you back to the furthest ends of the Far East with my fan, the Excalibanana Leaf Fan.

Sanzang: ...I see... This is my own battle.

Sanzang: Fujimaru... You guys shouldn't come...

Sanzang: Otherwise it will make the Buddha angry and you won't be able to return.

Sha Wujing: ...O Xuanzang Sanzang. The monk I temporarily revered as my master.

Sha Wujing: If you think of me as someone who cleverly reflects on the consequences before fighting my enemies, you're wrong.

Zhu Bajie: Yeah. We're Servants after all. We don't have anywhere to go back to.

Zhu Bajie: Returning to the Throne of Heroes means we will disappear. Chaldea is an exception, but we can't return there quite yet.

Zhu Bajie: There is a place I want to go back to. But I'll just fight, have fun, and die, though.

Zhu Bajie: And this big dude here, it's like preaching to whatchamacallit.

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]–!

Sanzang: ...

Sanzang: Fujimaru ...No, my unworthy number one disciple? What about you?

Sanzang: You are not a Servant. You should go back to those dear to you.

Fujimaru 1: You're dear to me, too.

Fujimaru 2: Do you really need to ask that?


Sanzang: You're all so fearless, you stupid pupils!

Ox-Demon King: —This is the final warning! You will be disobeying the Buddha!

Fujimaru 1: Get out of the way, Ox-Demon King!

Fujimaru 2: West, here we come! To the west!


Ox-Demon King: I...It's...

Ox-Demon King: It's not my fault!

Ox-Demon King: I only made one wish in exchange for complying with the Buddha!

Ox-Demon King: Princess Iron Fan's table and tablecloth and tableware and table napkins! Everything!

Ox-Demon King: They're all full of that pungent odor of disinfectant. So I asked if he could please do something about it!

Ox-Demon King: She cooks homey and delicious British cuisine... But that odor ruins everything... I can't bear it anymore... (Shudder)

Fujimaru 1: So that's why her food sucks?

Ox-Demon King: ...Whew. I apologize for the unsightly manner.

Ox-Demon King: A fair warning, Xuanzang Sanzang. I do not guarantee anything on your way from here on.

Ox-Demon King: You will most likely not have the Buddha's protection either.

Sanzang: Don't worry, Ox-Demon King. Do you think my faith will waver because of that?

Sanzang: Besides, that's what makes a journey a journey!

Ox-Demon King: All right... Then I wish you and your disciples good luck—

Final Volume: "Tianzhu"

Sanzang: Gandhara is sooo biiiig♪ On the other side of Tianzhuuuu lies a mandalaaaa♪ Lalalaaa♪

Fujimaru 1: ...Where is Tianzhu anyway?

Fujimaru 2: I thought we were headed west? Isn't this south?

Sha Wujing: You're asking where “Tianzhu” is? It's India, of course.

Zhu Bajie: India? Oh, at this pace I thought we were going to Rome or somewhere over there.

Sha Wujing: At the time Xuanzang Sanzang arrived in Tianzhu, Mahayana Buddhism had already perished and even the famous Jetavana Monastery had fallen into ruin.

Sha Wujing: It is said that what precious teachings survived were left in the hands of a few monasteries and rare scriptures...

Sanzang: What are you muttering about? Look!

Sanzang: A river! The Great Golden River! We're finally here! Oh, dear old Ganges!

Sanzang: —!??

Fujimaru 1: Namastee!? The most powerful ★5 Indian duo!?

Fujimaru 2: Wow, what glares!

Sanzang: ...Ugh... What are we going to do?

Zhu Bajie: ...Are they gatekeepers? Those two look like trouble. They look like they don't care a thing about Buddhism.

Zhu Bajie: More than anything, they can't take a joke. Well, in a way, Karna does have a sense of humor.

Nezha: They. Underworld. Guardians.

Sanzang: Nezha. I knew you would come.

Nezha: Understand now— Xuanzang?

Sanzang: ...

Sanzang: ...Yes, I do. Nezha.

Sanzang: Those two are great heroes as well as demi-gods, the embodiments of my fear...

Sanzang: The fear of going to the outside world, the anxiety that I can't brush off.

Sanzang: I was Chaldea's Servant.

Sanzang: But since I believed I had reached enlightenment and abandoned all earthly desires I refused the summon.

Sanzang: The Buddha will never concern himself with the extinction of humanity. To him, it is only one of the many ripples in existence.

Sanzang: If so, it is only my selfishness as a “human being.”

Fujimaru 1: (That's why the summoning experiment was incomplete...)

Fujimaru 2: (But it's probably Da Vinci's fault.)

Sanzang: I don't want to leave my disciples anymore... I don't want to die alone anymore...

Sanzang: ...Still. Even if I were on my own, as long as I can continue this journey, I would take that opportunity no matter what.

Sanzang: Sun Wukong is not here now, but—

Nezha: ...Xuanzang. I too. Give assistance.

Sanzang: Nezha, you? No, there's no need for that!

Sanzang: You are the Buddha's messenger, sent to complete this broken scroll.

Sanzang: Or perhaps you're like a lens for me to perceive the Buddha in this hollow world.

Sanzang: Isn't that right, Nezha?

Nezha: ...Understood. Will. Withdraw.

Nezha: Chat. Completed.

Sanzang: ...Nezha's gone.

Sanzang: I wonder if it's possible to summon her as a Servant?

Fujimaru 1: Of course! We needed more cheongsam Servants.

Zhu Bajie: Hey, my outfit's slit is just as suggestive!

Fujimaru 2: More importantly, is Nezha a boy or a girl?

Sanzang: —Huh? Well, even the Buddha himself doesn't know much about our Prince Nezha in a Chinese dress♪

Sanzang: Well, our latest issue has been overcome! I will not stop, regardless of who my opponent is!

Sanzang: Guys, follow me to the end! Let's conquer the last trial, that great river!


Mash: Senpai... Senpai!

Fujimaru 1: —Mash!

Fujimaru 2: Here, I'm here!

Mash: Please answer, Senpai! I can't believe there's no reception over here, either!

Mash: Senpai, the anchor for Rayshifting has arrived! You can come back to Chaldea!

Mash: We can only supply magical energy for a few more minutes, though! So...please...

Mash: Come back! —Master!

Fujimaru 1: ...!

Sanzang: This...must be the Buddha's guidance... No, maybe it's your own luck?

Sanzang: Or...

Sha Wujing: The right time.

Sha Wujing: Xuanzang Sanzang. You will remain here, on the other side, and depart again for the new land?

Sanzang: —Yes. Thank you for your pointed advice. Sha Wujing— Li Shuwen.

Sanzang: Your expertise with the spear was as great as that of the Sha Wujing I know.

Sanzang: Your levelheadedness kept me from crying my eyes out during this journey.

Zhu Bajie: My turn. To tell you the truth, we believe in very different gods.

Zhu Bajie: But people learn a lot from each other using the opportunities given to them by the gods.

Zhu Bajie: So, even though I believe in a different god, this trip has been a valuable experience. Thank you for the rare experience.

Zhu Bajie: Oh, and all the treasures I collected during this journey... I'll put them in a savings account under your name.

Zhu Bajie: When we meet again, I will host a big party, oink.

Sanzang: I'm looking forward to it. Zhu Bajie— Formidable King David.

Sanzang: Any dilemma, any situation we met, you faced with a light heart, without panicking or feeling discouraged.

Sanzang: I can't be like you, but I will remind myself of you when I'm in trouble.

Sanzang: Zhu Bajie, full of desire, who never lost that quirky personality.

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]–☆

Sanzang: Umm? Y-Yes, right? Yes, yes! (I don't know what he's saying, but what a strong handshake.)

Sanzang: You were great to ride on! Next time, I'll have a saddle ready!

White Dragon Horse: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]

Sanzang: And lastly...

Sanzang: If I ever gain the Buddha's guidance again and manifest as a Servant in the future...

Sanzang: Fujimaru... I will take you as my disciple again.

Fujimaru 1: In that case, I want to be your number one disciple again!

Sanzang: Whaaaat? Isn't that a bit presumptuous? Hahaha.

Sanzang: You have many people dear to you waiting for you at Chaldea, right?

Sanzang: But for being a fantastic neophyte who plays a key role in the survival of humanity, I might give you that side benefit.

Fujimaru 2: If that's the case, I want you to call me Master!

Sanzang: That', well, that depends on the merits you will have accrued by that day.

Sanzang: ...That's why I won't say goodbye. Instead, I will recite a blissful sutra.

Sanzang: So you will have perfect health, okay? —Ahem!

Sanzang: aryavalokitesvaro bodhisattvo gambhirayam prajnaparamitayam caryam caramano vyavalokayati...

Fujimaru 1: Until we meet again!

Fujimaru 2: Ending with a sutra is not really...

Mash: Senpai! Thank goodness!

Dr. Roman: Oops... Well, that was close. Very close.

Dr. Roman: If it hadn't gone well, Mash would have mashed me.

Dr. Roman: I wonder if the others embroiled in this accident have made their way back to Da Vinci's lab?

Dr. Roman: All right, I'm gonna go and complain to that painter.

Mash: (Sigh)... Shall we have some tea instead?

Mash: It seems like they found some precious Chinese tea along with the roll of scriptures.

Mash: Apparently it's called... “Records of the Journey to the Far West with Fujimaru.”

Mash: I think the tea will be the perfect complement to a recounting of your adventure.

Fujimaru 1: Okay, leave it to me.

Fujimaru 2: Recount? With pleasure.
