|The Ryudou brothers return to Hong
Kong. Japan has a serious earthquake and everywhere is in
fire. The Four Sisters continue with their plans of
wiping out 5 billion people in the world. They are even
pointing the nuclear missiles at Hong Kong! To save the
humanity from such a madness, the four dragons again
appear to fight--on the surface of the Moon... Matsunaga
(Matsuri's dog) will reveal a shocking truth, and let us
not forget the self-claimed "beauty" Ms.
The "Eight Deities" are one of the very popular legends in China and their story is still being performed by the Chinese drama actors. Though the seven male and one female deities all were believed to have different talents, they are still fictious and lack historical support. However, their story of crossing over the sea and helping mortals on the way is quite pleasant. Tanaka must have borrowed the part of crossing over the sea to metaphorically refer to the change of rule of power so commonly seen in present-day society. Too bad CLAMP has made only one drawing about them (Ransaiwa, below).
