♪I've forgotten those who are gone♪ [Word of Honor] [Episode 9] It's Nine Clawed Fox, Fang Bu Zhi. [So this is the guy who stole Lao Wen's Glazed Armor.] [No wonder.] [He died so quickly] [after catching that hot potato.] [It's nobody's fault but his own.] Plums that grow by the roadside with nobody picking them must be bitter. Ah Xu, you're not the only one who understands it. [Worship of Martial Spirit] What a poisonous hidden weapon! Who knew that such a small needle could kill people instantly? Who in the Ghost Valley is good at using these hidden weapons? Piercing Rain Needles? Only the Window of Heaven has this weapon. Han Ying moves fast indeed. So Lao Wen's Glazed Armor that stolen by Fang Bu Zhi must be with the Wind of Heaven now. Brother Wen. It looks like the Five Lakes Alliance is busy today. Let's not disturb them any longer. Brother... My brother is right. Since the Five Lakes Alliance is busy today,
we won't disturb you any longer. We'll leave for now. Second Brother, please walk them out. No need. There are more important things at stake. My apologies, then. The Heroes Conference is about to begin. I hope to see both of you there. Of course. I will definitely be at Chief Gao's Heroes Conference. See you next time. [Calligraphy and Paintings] Brother Cao. This one's good. Okay. You eat, have some more. Why aren't you eating? What? You dislike the food I gave you? Of course not! I wouldn't dare. It's an honor. I'll eat it right now. [Incomputable Treasures] How old are you exactly? You still have baby fat? That's so cute! What? I'm not flirting with you. I'm giving you a warning. Do you know that there's a Ghoul in the Ten Devils of the Ghost Valley that especially eats the faces of handsome young boys like you. Especially those with baby fat. Be careful! A human eating a human? Is that something a person would do? Of course not. That's why they're called devils.
Those crazy devils! We should kill all of them so that I can live up to my sect's mission of defeating evils and protecting justice. But I heard that the devils are very strong. Don't fail at killing them and get yourself killed instead. I won't. This time the Five Lakes Alliance is hosting, and all the heroes in the world are gathered here. We will definitely destroy the Ghost Valley. Really? But I heard that the Ghost Valley only came into Yueyang City the day before yesterday, and left ten human heads in public as a power move. If the Five Lakes Alliance is really that strong, how would they dare make trouble under it's nose? Miss Gu, don't worry. I will protect you. As long as I'm here, nothing will happen to you. I'm not scared. Thanks for letting me stay with the Yueyang Sect. I feel much safer. Let's eat. Miss Gu. You said that this Ghoul specially eats the faces of handsome young boys. Miss Gu. Does that mean that you think I'm handsome? What are you talking about? You said that I...
It's nothing. Oh, right! I have something to tell you. They found Fang Bu Zhi, but only his body and the stolen goods. The Yueyang Sect already put up a notice of the stolen goods. Who would have expected that? Isn't that the girl who was performing last time? I'm going to take a look. Miss Gu! Xiang... Miss, would you like to hear a song? Someone's here with me, so it's not a good time. You ask around first. When I ask you to sing, that means I have finished my mission. Tell me where to find Master by then. Okay. I got the wrong person? You're much prettier than the girl last time. Go ahead with what you were doing. I got the wrong person. [Good Luck Inn] [Why is the Window of Heaven involved with the Glazed Armor?] [Does Prince Jin want the armory too?] [I wonder why Gao Chong] [hid Cheng Ling away.] Here, come in. Put it here. Ah Xu, I ordered a bunch of yummy dishes. The chef at this inn is good at cooking. [I've started to lose my senses.] What are you staring out?
As a saying goes, as long as there's wine, we will drink today. Life is nothing but three meals and sleep. As long as you can have a meal with someone you like, all matters can wait. You finally said something sensible. Sit. Eat while it's hot. Good wine! Ah Xu, what are you thinking about? Alright. What can't you tell me? Are you still worried about Cheng Ling? I'm wondering whether it was a mistake to bring Cheng Ling back to the Five Lakes Alliance. Ah Xu, you're so terrible. You have such a handsome face and a kind and innocent heart. The girls in the world are all going to go crazy for you. If I keep staying with you, will anyone even like me anymore? Do you really want to save him all the way, and accept him as a disciple to protect him forever? Nothing lasts forever. When I was little, I had a dog. It was a gift from someone very important. My mother didn't want me to raise it, saying that dogs are only loyal to one person for life. If I wanted to keep it, I would have to raise it for the rest of my life. How would an eight-year-old child understand what a lifetime meant? So of course I agreed.
And then? Then... I betrayed it. Not everything will go your way. But you must not leave regrets. What? That hurts. Speaking of the dog, don't you think this example is quite mean? Here, drink. Good wine. Eat. [Good Luck Inn] Ah Xu. Why are you still sleeping? Get up! Go to Yuefan Tower with me. It's almost noon, time to get up! They all say that Yuefan Tower is the best place to view Yueyang City. Get up. -Let's go. -I'm not going. Let's go! -Let's go. -Don't touch me. Let's go! If you keep nagging, I'm going to kill you! Let's go! You can spend your day sadly or spend it happily. If the flowers bloomed, then pluck them. Why do this to yourself? Get up. No! [Yuefan Tower] The Four Sages of Anji. Who are they? They're a breath of fresh air in the martial arts world. The Four Sages of Anji are all masters of music, but they come from different backgrounds. They became soulmates of common interest,
and left the martial arts world together to quietly live in a beautiful bamboo forest in Anji. They haven't come out for over 10 years. No wonder they can produce such heavenly music. Of the Four Sages, two are a couple that used to be disciples of the same clan. Another is a scholar without any martial arts, but he is good at playing zither. The last one is Lonely Thief Master, He Yi Fan. Though being in the gutter, he always looked up at the stars. His three friends guided him to give up evil for good, and live in the forest. That's how they became soulmates like Yu Bo Ya and Zhong Zi Qi. Yu Bo Ya and Zhong Zi Qi*. (* Lit.: Literary allusion, Gao Shan Liu Shui) Soulmates like that are hard to find. The world is not important. What's important is finding a soulmate. [If it wasn't for the fact that I don't have much time left,] [wouldn't it be great] [to find a soulmate to roam the martial arts world] [and spend the rest of my life] [like the Four Sages of Anji?] [Why be pessimistic?] [Living like this for two or three years] [is better than wasting an entire lifetime.] Can you do it or not? I can. He's already grown up, but he still practices basic moves with us.
What's funny is that he's not even as good as us! Shut up. The Mirror Lake Sword Sect has a style of their own. They don't care about the basics. What do you guys know? Is that right, Young Master Zhang? Why did you hit me? I'm not hitting you. I'm testing you. They all say that the Mirror Lake Sword Sect's anti-gravity skill is unique. I wanted to experience your skills, but who knew? Your Upwards Toad move is truly special. Just leave. How would Young Master Zhang like our boring and basic moves? Let's not make him late for lunch. [Worship of Literature] [Chongwu Palace] Hi. Sorry. Don't you watch where you're going? Sister Xiang! Are you happy to see me? You're tall enough for me to pat your head now! Don't cry, Chevalier Goldbean. Why are you still crying? Don't cry. I thought I would never see you again. I thought Master didn't want me anymore. Master? Uncle Zhou. Zhou Xu? Alright, alright. He hasn't actually accepted me as his disciple yet. But Uncle Wen told me
that Uncle Zhou is softhearted, and he would accept me if I keep pestering him and calling him Master. Did he also say that even tough women cannot resist clingy men? That's right. How did you know? Seriously. He never teaches you anything good. Sister Xiang, since you're here, does that mean Master and Uncle Wen are here too? Where are they? They didn't come. Alright. The Yueyang Sect is heavily guarded, and not everyone can enter. They specially sent me to take care of you. Sister Xiang, you all are so kind to me. Then... then how did you get in? This is the inner courtyard. Sister, did you sneak in? Of course not. I was invited in. The Heroes Conference is almost here. More and more people from various backgrounds are in the city now. Ah Xu. Those boys who dressed like virgins visiting a brothel for the first time, which sect are they from? Mount Hua Sect. They've always cared about the neatness of their garments. Messy clothes are against sect rules. Now I see where Xiang got all those mean words. Ah Xu, then what about those two glaring over there? Iron Fist Clan. [Upright and Auspicious Ethos] The Iron Fist Clan rules over Jingxiang. Two tigers can't rule the same mountain.
They don't get along with the Yueyang Sect. Ah Xu. Why do you know so much about every sect and their rules? Can you tell which sect I'm from? Your martial arts are complex and constantly changing. Unless your master knows skills from every sect, you must have more than one master. Lao Wen. Can you change your habit of making me guess? Just tell me what you want to tell me. Stop making me guess. The Heroes Conference, where heroes gather to praise heroes. These people sure know how to compliment themselves. These plebs think they deserve to be called heroes? Ah Xu. How many actual heroes do you think are there in the martial arts world? Only inexperienced people yearn to be heroes. Then what about the experienced? The experienced know that each character of the word "hero" is written in blood. If it's not their own blood, then it's the others'. I've passed the age of wanting to be a hero. Now, I'm just a wanderer in this world.
I can't say. Lao Wen. Do you want to be a hero or a wanderer? There are too many people that want to be heroes. I like watching the show, but not being part of the show. Let the heroes go and gather. As a wanderer in this world, all I need is you. Ah Xu! Where are you going? Why are you going this way? Ah Xu. I bought wine for you. Again? Didn't you say you couldn't fall asleep after 1 a.m.? Since you're can't fall asleep anyway, then go to the roof with me to drink and appreciate the moon. I'm telling you. The moon looks beautiful tonight. Appreciate the moon with great wine! ♪Willows are everywhere in the town, but I don't see a catkin♪ One should enjoy life when things are going well. Live up to the glorious moon and the wine. ♪The Anser has traveled a thousand miles, but I still don't hear your news♪ ♪My days are dull and gloomy♪ [Cheng Liquor Store] You're here? ♪The rose bloomed, but I'm still clueless♪
♪It withered and the East Wind has left♪ Ah Xu. Do you know? I'm really happy. Why don't you ask me why I'm happy? You'll tell me why when you want to. If you don't want to, then why would I ask? ♪Our dreams are short, so are our lives♪ ♪I lost myself♪ ♪If a bird is heartless, it wouldn't return♪ Such a beautiful night, and there has to be a death-match. What a way to ruin the mood! This isn't the only death-match in Yueyang City tonight. [Xiangming Hall] The scent of flowers fills Yueyang. The Glazed Armor is everywhere in the city. I'm happy because the show has finally begun. Lao Wen, what are you trying to say? You can't describe a good show. Come, let's go see it. [Yuetian Hall] No wonder why it got quiet. They put on a "perish together" act.
Wonderful. Cyclops Jiang Che. Furious Blademaster Li Heng. Both of them are somewhat famous. Why did they die in such a funny way? This is why everyone in the world comes for profit, and everyone leaves also for profit. When will these idiots understand that they need to at least be alive to take advantage of something. This is the piece Fang Bu Zhi stole from you. Looks like it. Looks like it? Ah Xu, you're very smart. Think about it a bit more. Why are these two pieces of Glazed Armor exactly the same? [Harmonious and Prosperous] Ah Xu, don't you think this is all very funny? Ah Xu! Wait for me. What's wrong? What's wrong? Lao Wen. Don't you think it's wrong? Why is it wrong? These people were all going to get themselves killed anyway. I just added fuel to the fire. Lao Wen. I used to think that you were pretending to be crazy and dumb. I didn't realize that you're actually crazy.
[Pavilion Reaching the Clouds] [Harmonious and Prosperous] [Yueyang Sect] Junior. Go away. You're bringing misfortune this early in the morning. We're giving out porridge in two hours. It's me. Hurry up. Hurry up and tell Master. Eldest Senior? Tell to Master quickly. Someone, help! Eldest Senior! Ah Xu, time to get up. Alright, don't be mad anymore. It's not even a big deal. Ah Xu. Ah Xu? Ah Xu? Seriously? This one is fake? Yes. Three pieces of the Glazed Armor have appeared. Last night, it changed hands multiple times in one night. There was a bloody fight every time. That's right. The Heroes Conference is about to begin, but now the Glazed Armor is everywhere, creating chaos. This is extremely humiliating for the Five Lakes Alliance. Don't worry, Big Brother. We will kill anyone, whether he's a human or a ghost, who dares make trouble during the Conference. Right, Second Brother?
Yes. Eldest Senior. Please wake up soon, okay? I'm really worried about you. There are so many matters to handle for the sect, and you are my father's best assistant. Without you here, my father's hair has gotten grayer. Answer me, Eldest Senior. [Yue] Unlock the door. Yes. Eat. Hurry up and eat. Gao Shan, what are you doing? -Stop it. -Don't hold me back! They're just two idiots who won't feel pain! Who cares? Beating them helps me vent! We've tried all kinds of tortures, but they wouldn't say anything. There's no use beating them. Alright, Gao Shan. They seem pitiful, and must have been tricked. Bah! You pity them? Why don't you pity Senior Wei and our Eldest Senior? He's still in a coma! Gao Shan... Senior! Senior! Why didn't you go to Renyi Hall? What happened? Something's wrong. We sent everyone that we could. Masters and the others are there too. [Renyi Hall] [Utmost Kindness] Four Sages of Anji! You haven't done anything terrible, and we don't want to create trouble! Hurry up and give us the Glazed Armor! My dear, why don't we give the Glazed Armor to them?
We must keep our word. My dear! Give... Give it to Chevalier Gao. My dear! My dear! -Big Brother! -Big Brother! The Glazed Armor belongs to no one! Why should we give it to the Beggar Gangs? Don't you claim to be the biggest gang in the world? Are you trying to forcefully steal this? What a joke! If we used force, would you still be alive right now? The World's Armory has the secret arts from all sects and clans, including that of the Beggar Gangs. It is completely reasonable for us to take back the Glazed Armor. Madam Pei, this is for your own good. Look at our other friends here. They're not as reasonable as the Beggar Gangs. Master Huang, what do you mean? What? The Four Sages of Anji are right. The Glazed Armor belongs to no one. Whoever is strong controls it. If the Beggar Gangs have the right to fight for it, does the Mount Hua Sect not?
What does this have to do with you? Is it even your turn? Stinky beggar. Are you stupid from kowtowing for food? [Gao Shan Nu] The Glazed Armor [Gao Shan Nu] was last with that old man, Ao Lai Zi. Everyone knows that the Ghost Valley killed him. Now it's with the "Four Idiots of Anji". That means they're the Ghost Valley's dogs! You damned midget! This is no place for you to speak! Third Brother! Third Brother! Third Brother! Feng Xiao Feng, you vicious bastard! Give us the antidote! Then give me the Glazed Armor! Do you have any dignity? It's okay for the Beggar Gangs, the Mount Hua Sect, and the Kongtong Sect to fight for the Glazed Armor. After all, there are their secret records in the armory. Which hole did you midget jump out of? Twenty years ago, you weren't even in the martial arts world. Scram! Scram far away! You disgust me! Gao Shan Nu, beat her! Enough! Elder Huang. The Beggar Gangs have always been on good terms with the Five Lakes Alliance. But you and your disciples keep making trouble
in the city! Are you disregarding the Five Lakes Alliance? Chief Gao, I should be the one asking you that! The Five Lakes Alliance gets arrogant and unbearable recently, but I let it go for your sake. Now you brought so many people to attack us? Is the Five Lakes Alliance acting this overbearing because you think there's no equal left in the martial arts world? Elder Huang. It's not your place to represent the martial arts world, is it? Mount Hua Sect only follows Chief Gao's lead! You ass kisser! The reputation of the Five Mount and Sword Sects is ruined because of you! Elder Huang. You are so close with Tao Hong and Lv Liu. You are the one that humiliated the Beggar Gangs! Better than the Five Lakes Alliance that has no dignity to begin with! Grandma Tao Hong. Don't think you can gossip as you wish just because you are a woman. I can't cut off your tongue, but I can cut off your neck! How dare you! What are you doing? Shen Shen! How do you dare say that? And you pride yourself on being from a proper and famous sect!
Killing devils and maintaining justice is the duty of a proper sect! Chief Gao, you are indeed bold! How many worms did you spill from this old clay pot? This is disgusting. I'm not fighting you all anymore! Feng Xiao Feng! Don't you leave! Leave the antidote! Fifth Brother. Stop him! Follow me! Madam Pei, this is Master Gao. The Four Sages of Anji are my honored guests. I'll wait and see who dares to trouble you! Madam Pei! The Glazed Armor! Stop! Don't kill him! We've lived in seclusion for fifteen years, and forgotten all of our worries. Fifteen years of accompaniment was destroyed in one instant because of this thing! Brother Du, you...! Chief Gao. The four of us retreated from the world long ago, and only wanted to spend the rest of our lives in the forest. We only came out to take part in the Heroes Conference because of you. But I never expected that a loyal friendship between you and me
would cause us to die in Yueyang City. Gao Chong. Brother Pei stole the Glazed Armor for you. Was it worth it? Was it? Brother Du. I do apologize! But Brother Du, please rest assured. I will definitely avenge you and the others! What is the point of keeping you if I have no soulmates left? Brother Du! No! Chief Gao. Every debt has a debtor. The Four Sages of Anji either directly or indirectly died because of Feng Xiao Feng. This is not related to the Beggar Gangs. This brother was tricked and poisoned. Tao Hong and Lv Liu acted out of self-defense. The Beggar Gangs and the Five Lakes Alliance don't need to ruin our relationship because of this small incident... Elder Huang! Don't you want the Glazed Armor? Take it! Is one piece enough?
I'll give you another! Everyone! On July 15th, after the Heroes Conference, I will clearly explain everything about the Glazed Armor to you all! Elder Huang. The two of us must settle our matters after the conference! Bah!
