The Magic Lotus Lantern

Anyway, on Mount Hua, there was this Goddess called Sheng Mu [meaning mother of Saints, of course,] and errbody was all, “Guys, if you’re totally in trouble, pray to her so she can help you and shiz,” ‘cause this goddess had a lotus lantern that was super powerful, and she could always make things better for the people.

One day, this scholar dude called Liu Yanchang wanted to take the exams, and prayed to her for good luck. But he was taking bamboo slips (抽签 chou qian) he didn’t get no answer, and was like, mighty disappointed. He was so mad he vandalized the temple.

When San Sheng Mu got back, she was like, so pissed ‘cause he was like, so rude to her! So she got all the gods and goddesses of the wind and rain and weather to torment Liu Yanchang on the way, so much that he actually got sick. When that happened, Sheng Mu and her assistant, Lingzhi was all, “K, I think we better go and help him get better and say sorry now,” which was what they did.

Obviously, they fell in love, and while Liu Yanchang went to take his exams, San Sheng Mu gave birth to a boy called Chenxiang. But the thing is, Er Lang Shen learned that she was married to a mortal, and he totally flipped his shit, ‘cause mortals and immortals aren’t supposed to date. So, while San Sheng Mu was attending to her baby, Er Lang did something really despicable, and like, attacked her while his dog stole the lotus lantern. Now that he had defeated his sis, he locked her in Mount Hua.

But! Lingzhi, the maidservant was still there, so she brought up Chenxiang, and took baby Chenxiang to this dude called the Firebolt immortal. The immortal taught Chenxiang martial arts and some magic powers, which was cool.

When Chenxiang was 15, he had a dream of this woman being chained up, and she said she was his mum, and he was about to go get her, when this general descended between them, and Chenxiang totally had to call him ‘Uncle.’ Then, when he woke up, he totally told the Firebolt immortal about the dream, and the immortal was all, “Well, you are kind of related to immortals,” and he told Chenxiang the whole story.

So obviously, Chenxiang was old enough to go after his mum, which is what he did. While on his way, there was like, thunder and lightning, and Chenxiang saw there was this huge-ass flood dragon in the way. So he whooped dragon ass, the thing exploded, TADA! There was this axe left behind. So Chenxiang unlocked this achievement and like, went on his way .

The axe was like, really useful ‘cause it allowed Chenxiang to climb up Mount Hua, and saw that Er Lang’s dog was totally watching over the lantern, so he fought with the dog and got the lantern back.

Er Lang totally found out what happened, and he and Chenxiang fought. But Chenxiang had been training with the Firebolt Immortal and so defeated his uncle! Woo! All he had to do now was to split open the mountain to get his mum, which is what he did.

He also had to be careful, not to hurt his mum. He got his mum, they walked down the former mountain, and ohmygod, like, Liu Yanchang was waiting for them. Turns out, the Firebolt Immortal found Liu Yanchang and said, “Hey, I think you might wanna see your son and wife,” and Liu Yanchang was all, “Is this shit real?” ‘cause Liu Yanchang had gotten a job as a magistrate and he transferred to the Mount Hua area ‘cause he wanted to be with his wife, but he like, couldn’t find her. What he would do, though, is go to her temple and pray and hope, which was real nice of him.

Er Lang totally had to promise not to bother them anymore, and San Sheng Mu was all, “Meh, I really don’t want to be immortal anyways,” and so, after renouncing her title, she and her family lived together after that.

Omg! I love this movie! I actually saw it in English no less. I love the story, I cried when I first watched it. I love the animation as well, it reminded me of some the older Disney animated films I watched as a kid. :)

FYI, not only was it a cartoon, there's a series serial for it by the same name.
问世间情是何物,直教生死相许。
天南地北双飞客,老翅几回寒暑。
欢乐趣,离别苦,就中更有痴儿女。
君应有语,渺万里层云,千山暮雪,只影向谁去。

横汾路,寂寞当年箫鼓,荒烟依旧平楚。
招魂楚些何嗟及,山鬼暗啼风雨。
天也妒,未信与,莺儿燕子俱黄土。
千秋万古,为留待骚人,狂歌痛饮,来访雁邱处。
