It's going to be tough for Riboku.
Remember what happened at Rigan. Kisui's dad was faced with a dilemma.
Riboku will either give up Gyou or watch his people undergo complete and utter devastation. He's literally at Ousen's mercy.

In all of Zhao, with so many bright minds not one person is able to pinpoint Ou Sen's goal, not one. Let us see if any of the clever minds in Qin can interpret his movements since Ou Sen has clearly failed to notify headquarters about the change of plan. I’m still not sure why he's moving east. It’s a little frustrating because it's hard to get an indication of their current direction. Does this direction take them to the capital, Gyou, or somewhere else? And, how is Yo Tan Wa to catch up while Kou Son Ryuu is right behind her? Is Ou Sen planning on taking Gyou and holding it until further reinforcements arrive? Won’t that take time? Is that why he needs Yo Tan Wa to catch up? Anyway, did Ou Sen miscalculate or is he accurate about Ri Boku’s pace. Has Ri Boku managed to reach Kantan within the time frame Ou Sen predicted or has he managed to get there a lot sooner? I don't know, that last panel establishes doubt with Ou Sen's prediction. Argh, I hate it when I can't make sense of things lol. I hope some of you can shed a little light on things.

I never realized that. I hope it get's easier to clean but seeing as this is mostly about them I doubt it. Thanks for the quick release it's truly appreciated. 8^)

It’s official Ordo is the most inefficient general that I’ve seen either that or Yan is desperate for any kind of help. I mean, c’mon, how did he not grasp that they could just as easily attack his land as he did theirs...isn’t this common knowledge in warfare. Besides, isn’t he a mountain general of sorts. Does that, not mean anything? According to this, when the time comes for Qin to invade I highly doubt that Yan will be able to respond accordingly.
As for Ousen, I can only surmise that he intends to continue pillaging the remaining cities situated along Gyou. Glad he didn’t kill the citizens but I think the reason for this has to do with a hidden agenda. Here’s what I’m getting at, some time ago back way back in chapter 369 (when Ryo Fui was still in power) he was in cahoots with a man by the name of Kaku Kai who desperately wanted to rid Zhao of its current prime minister, Ri Boku. At the same time, Shou Hei Kun had a spy within Zhao, who possibly may have been after the same thing, but I can’t be sure of that. Anyway, now that Ryo Fui is no longer in office, he can’t influence Kaku Kai but that doesn’t mean that Kaku Kai isn’t influenced by another source, in fact he may have his own agenda. Of course, this is somewhat conjecture on my behalf. One thing is certain Kaku Kai is after Ri Boku’s job. But how is he to get it? Maybe thru the act of defamation. This seems likely, though however you look at it, Ri Boku is being attacked from all sides, poor soul. What do you think?

@b12, I believe foreshadowing is at play. 8^)

I’m not sure from what I’ve seen at this point that I can deduce what Ou Sen is up to, he’s moving away from the intended target. Therefore, I believe that everyone else is having the same difficulty extrapolating a concrete theory concerning his true goal (I’m referring to Wei, Chu, Han, Yan, and maybe Qi). And because of this, I wonder if everyone except for Qi is looking for the same thing, the perfect opportunity to strike, that is, of course, that they miraculously discover a weak point in Zhao’s defenses due to fending off both Qin and Yan. On the other side of the country, Ka Rin seems to be enjoying her newly appointed position. Not only is she a Great General (GG), but also a Prime Minister. You know, I could see GG Tou doing the same thing. He’s always given me the impression of a very cerebral individual. And there’s a small glimpse of Go Hou Mei, who believes that Ri Boku will undoubtedly annihilate Ou Sen and his armies. Could he be right? Only thing left is to take bets, but who is the underdog? Is it Ou Sen or Ri Boku?

Thank you SS team. 8^)

I’m impressed. Ri Boku has spared no expense. Gyou’s fort is reinforced with a moat and a massive watch tower. To be honest, I expect a few more medieval tricks from Ri Boku as we continue. I take it this is what he meant when he said Ou Sen should take a look for himself. Maybe he hoped it would discourage Qin from further assault and consider retreat. It has instead the opposite effect on Ou Sen. He has decided to continue his invasion. I think it’s a mistake. They’re abandoning their only escape route and any possible chance to obtain supplies should the need arise. And to make matters worse, Ou Sen’s disappearance lost them four precious days, but on the bright side we now know that Zhao’s capital is about two days away and Qin has had plenty of rest. I wonder what Ou Sen has come up with. Does he plan on attacking the smaller cities leading to Gyou or is he going after Kantan instead? Let’s not forget that despite the current situation, however dangerous it may seem, they have an ally nearby, Qi.

So Retsubi was a trap after all. But, I don’t see what all the noise is about when Qin’s actual plan is to head straight for Zhao’s capital anyway. Kan Ki says that Ou Sen went on ahead to see if it’s at all possible for them to keep moving forward and continue the attacks, and Ri Boku said that he should take a look at something, wonder if it’s the same thing. Is it the terrain? Perhaps, to scout the actual distance between the two points to see if it will still work to their advantage. What exactly will determine if they can move forward or not? What factors will affect this decision? Also, we have yet see general Kochou, the Guardian Deity of the Royal Capital. Supposedly, he’s a big threat to Qin. Where is he?

That's embarrassing. I'll keep an eye out for it, thanks. 8^)

Ou Ki’s glaive clearly poses a problem for Shin, but he would never run into this dilemma had he practiced with it beforehand, putting it to the test in real battle isn’t wise. Lucky for him, it didn’t turn out too bad. I said it all along, Shin should’ve properly prepared his body with the glaive or at least practiced with it at every opportunity. Hopefully, this will help him realize that he should also begin practice with Duke Hyou’s shield as well. Maybe, he will surprise us and adapt to it quickly, maybe.
Well, they’ve taken over Retsubi just as Yo Tan Wa declared but what concerns me is that they have nowhere to run if things inexplicably decide to change in favor of Zhao. Yes, they’ve taken over Retsubi yet strategically this leaves them right smack in the middle of enemy territory, mountains on one side and a raging river on the other with nowhere to go except forward or reverse. And, in front of them lie a number of Zhao forces who feel they have the advantage on account of Ri Boku's plan. Anyway, in order for Qin to attack Gyou, they will have to split their forces. Who will remain in Retsubi while the rest head for Zhao’s capital? Is this what Ri Boku plans on? So that, Zhao won’t have to attack Qin’s entire armies all at once. The smaller the number of grouped soldiers they struggle with the easier it is to defend against. If this is true, this makes Ri Boku one of the most proficient strategist in all of China and Ou Sen has just realized the same. 8^)
Ka Ryo Ten discovered something about Retsubi, but what? And, how did the city’s residents move out so quickly? We know, that they, to some extent, figured out pieces about Qin’s invasion plan, but I can’t see how they would have enough time to make preparations. Have the citizens gone underground? If so, where exactly? Is this plan by Ri Boku (if I can call it that), devised purely out of desperation to prevent Qin from further assaults? Still, I can’t believe that Ou Sen vanished without a trace, it doesn’t make any sense. What’s going on?
