It's a tale as old as time. One minute you're a simple young monk, minding your own business, and the next you're having a sexual awakening with a fish-woman you found in the river, who might just be the reincarnated ex-lover of your elderly master. This hand-painted folktale bears little resemblance to that more famous animated mermaid, but throw in a singing crab and it'd make a hell of a sequel.
