Synopsis by Mark Deming
This video collects episodes six through nine in the Japanese animated fantasy series Monkey Magic. As Kongo assembles a squadron to battle the Celestial Heaven's armada of fighting aircraft, the enemy leader attempts to curry Kongo's favor by offering him a key spot in their fleet. After he accepts the position, Kongo is outraged to learn he's been tricked, and he now holds the bottom rung of the Celestial Heaven ladder. A vengeful Kongo is determined to become Prime Minister, but he must first defeat the mightiest warriors of Celestial Heaven before this dream can be realized.
