  • Wonder what Uncle did when he was younger.

    Jackie is able to retrieve the dog talisman before Tohru. In the process, Tohru accidentally sits on his own talisman tracker. Valmont recruits a new member named Hak Fu due to Tohru's insolence. This new member seems to be promising, possessing excellent martial arts skills that are on par with Jackie Chan's. Back at the antique shop, even though it's uncle's birthday, he's rather depressed of his aging. Though he discovers that the dog talisman grants youth and immortatily.

    Uncle tags along with Jackie and Jade to find the pig talisman located in Biveria. Jackie is unable to find the pig talisman, but it's Jade and Uncle who discover it on the top of the central clock tower on the forehead of a pig. Though they encounter some major trouble within that same tower with both Tohru and Hak Fu, but the Uncle and Jackie duo proved to be superior. Uncle decides to give back the talisman, for being young was too dangerous and exhausting for his taste.

    While uncle being young again was indeed badass, it'll surely overshadow one aspect of this episode that made it so unique; Biveria. Well, not exactly the country itself; it looks like a cool country to live in, with the obsession with pigs and the entertainers playing their instruments in the middle of the streets. How Jackie discovered the pig talisman being within that country was unique with a chocolate coin that he previously bought in that country sharing the same icon as the pig talisman. In the process, that pig company wouldn't have been made if it weren't for the talisman, which is just really cool.

    Though on to the main stuff; Uncle was badass! It's too bad he won't be able to keep the dog talisman, because man, he's just awesome with it! Hak Fu is an interesting character himself, but his constant yelling of animal personifications gets a little annoying. The fighting was still awesome with Uncle and Jackie fighting Hak Fu, and Hak Fu himself was pretty funny, constantly ripping jokes on Tohru and his fatness. This episode once again delivers in comedy, and action.
