Something doesn't feel right. You know, that gut feeling, that something is a little…off. I mean, c'mon, it's hard to believe that Yo Tan Wa could so easily be outplayed. And so, here's a theory. Could what took place in Sai, take place here as well? Should we expect reinforcements (from a nearby Northern region) to assist Yo Tan Wa? Is this what she had old man Enpo do? To have his people ask the Quanrong who drifted northwards to join them against the Zhao once more. I know that many of her battle tactics are simple in nature and straightforward, but she didn't get to be the almighty leader of the mountain folk without using her head. She doesn't strike me as a person who goes to war without a backup plan, she just doesn't. There has to be more to her character otherwise she’s just as simple as Ordo.

I don’t know where to begin, it’s just one disaster after another for Heki and company. As much as I hate to admit it, the stratagem deployed by Bunen is not within the scope of Heki’s skill, he’s outclassed by the Quanrong. Kan Ki would’ve been a more interesting adversary against these guys, at least, with him as an opponent, the Quanrong would’ve gotten a taste of their own medicine well before combat ever began. Slaughtering the innocent, striking fear, you get the idea. Heki needs to change his method of attack fast or it’s all over for them. By the book tactics won’t cut it, not with these guys.

Thumbs up to Danto aka the Feego king, he accomplished his task and demonstrates true mettle.

Although reckless and foolish the little sheep *threw herself into the lion’s den. How old would you say Kitari is?

The Quanrong archers have terrible aim. They can’t even single out the enemy at this range. What is Yo Tan Wa up to, can’t she deploy her archers against them.

I guess it’s safe to assume that Bunen’s brothers are ruthless as well and will use similar tactics too. 

Heki’s heroic stunt may give the Mera tribe the boost in morale they need to go berserk against the Quanrong. Why? Well, because I recall that they expressed an unusual measure of admiration for him in chapter 553. It’s possible that he could be the key that reverses the flow on his side. We may yet have a Kit-Kat moment.

I don’t think I can take another Heki only episode. What about Bajio and the Feego King, let’s focus on them a lil’ more. 

Where are Heki’s archers? Do you think Bunen’s target is Katari and Kitari?

What is old man Enpo and his tribe doing?

Rankai's whereabouts? You think Yo Tan Wa brought him along?

We know exactly what Zhao’s king is willing to sacrifice in order to save his own hide, but I’m not sure we know what Ri Boku is willing to do now that they lost a commander. Before the death of Gaku Ei they had an edge on the right side of the battlefield and now I’m not so sure. Shin is different. The enemy sees it. Hou Ken feels it.

Believe it or not, I can think of another important person that to some extent is dysfunctional - Hou Ken (aka the Bushin). Who I’m actually dissapointed to see this late in the game. If I didn’t know any better I’d say his timing is way off but in fact it couldn’t be any better. Shin’s got a new swing. Anyway, he’s a different sort altogether guided by an obsession to be the best so he doesn’t give a damn about honor and justice like most of his peers but that doesn’t make him any better. As far as I can tell, there is no pledge of allegiance to anyone. But who cares because now we have a general idea where he might appear next. I think it’s time they settle the score once and for all.

The way in which Shin takes Gaku Ei out seems almost too easy even for him. If anything, this confirms that he can indeed handle Ou Ki’s glaive and can treat it as an extension of himself. Something I believe he had trouble with in the past. So, does this mean that if he were to take on old foes again would things be any different? Maybe. But the past is history. No sense in trying to debate what ifs. One thing is certain, Shin’s martial acuity just got, how shall I put it, more precise. Perhaps now he can practice with the shield Duke Hyou gifted him. Hey, Sei? Please have it shipped courier ASAP, thanks bud.

Luv the clash. Dislike the outcome. I would've been happier if he put Ba Nan Ji out of commission. All I see is Ou Sen’s in charge (A Kou) making poor judgment calls without any real consideration. Contrary to how I feel about this unprecedented exchange a certain someone deserves adequate praise. I’d like to know a little more about A Kou maybe a backstory. But what of Ba Nan Ji and Gyou’un don't they still have the upper hand and momentum. They could continue to obliterate A Kou's remaining army (what's left of it anyway) hereby improving their odds of winning this whole thing before Ou Hon takes over.

Shin’s instincts continue to surface and it’s more than just a quick reflex, his body seems to react as well. Wonder if his instincts can be considered to be on a whole other level. I'm not going to pretend that I know what he is sensing but I have a feeling it has something to do with A Kou, especially with Gyou’un. If they manage to erase another general it’s practically over for Qin. For crying out loud, what is Ou Sen doing? This whole scheme turned out to be pathetic. I’ll be honest, I did not expect A Kou’s defensive formation to hold but I did expect Ou Sen to participate. Right now, the way things stand, I wouldn’t be surprised if Ri Boku personally attempts another assassination. I will be extremely disappointed with Ou Sen if A Kou dies. Then again, I’m not sure that he can observe the events on the right though that doesn't make it any easier to endure. :(

What? The HSU is getting crushed on all fronts. But seriously, I would’ve appreciated a bird’s eye view of the battlefield directly over them, you know, to see the carnage Gaku Ei and his men have inflicted upon the HSU. I can’t believe everyone is having trouble, especially Kyou Kai. They obviously underestimated these guys. To sum it up, a bad miscalculation and a costly mistake.

They have broken through Ou Sen’s unbreakable barrier aka defensive formation. So why, am I, not surprised? Hmm…I have a feeling A Kou won’t last long now. Hope I'm wrong but I wasn’t a fan of this tactic to begin with. I thought it was at best sufficient only for the time being, and knew that once Ri Boku observed it, he would find a way to counter it. Everything has a weak point that may not be immediately evident to some, but hey, this is Ri Boku. He’s either going to find a solution to a problem or create one.

None of this makes any sense. Zhao’s veterans, as depicted by the map, have all just decided to fight on Qin’s terms. That’s crazy! Talk about taking the bait lol. What about Ou Hon’s forces? Are they going to be ignored? Do they believe that he is not worth defending against? What if he decides to divide his unit in two and attack Chou Ga Ryuu before attacking Gaku’ei? That they have chosen to play by Qin’s strategy seems a little too convenient for me. And seriously, the defensive formation A Kou’s men have taken isn’t convincing at all. Too many empty pockets. I guess it serves as a buffer to reduce the collision between them but I'm still not convinced. Anyhow, it seems to be working.

I trust Kan Ki is just letting Ma Ron believe that they will abandon this mission to avoid a mutiny, right?

It’s been a long time since Ou Hon got on Shin’s bad side but this just reminded him who Ou Hon really is.

Pretty obvious that Ou Hon’s plan will backfire. But, why?

And finally, I’m getting tired of Ri Boku always claiming the same thing. That he knows, "the Akou army’s weakness." He said the same about Kan Ki and yet he hasn’t done anything to stop him. 

Ch.555 Pg.06  This glimpse inside Gyou contradicts the supposed 20 day's worth of rations. Kinda questionable, don't you think?

Kingdom / General Heki

I guess I forgot what sort of person Heki is so I went back, way back, to examine his character and realized that he’s not a simple soldier, he’s actually well-rounded even without the validation of his stats. I’m not sure exactly when but somewhere early in his career he had already mastered the fundamentals of strategy. What’s even more amazing is how he’s survived this long, especially when in the past he was pinned against less fortunate situations. To be honest, Heki is someone you want on your side. He’s not dense, in fact, he quickly adapts to any situation. I’m not saying Heki is right for every battle only that he’s levelheaded, which is more than I can say for other commanders.

Ch.295 Pg.10 Heki trumps in this chapter!

Ch.240 Pg.13 Dependable. Reliable. Determined.

I know that Heki is not a favorite right now but he sure seems like it. And, I know that I’m not alone when I say that the suspense increased with every following page. Yeah, Heki is holding his own. Even Kitari, who looks down on him is impressed. Heki bro sticks with the fundamentals of war. Not only does he put a dent on the opposition, he also demonstrates Qin's prowess (and I luv it!). Just hope his pride doesn’t get the best of him. The last thing they need is another screw up and all because his head got too big. Oh, and Yo Tan Wa is feeling nostalgic. I've never seen this side of her before.

The odds are stacked against them. I still don’t know how Zhao has this many troops. One thing stands out though, the three Zhao commanders and their armies have body armor. Compared to other mountain folk, and Yo Tan Wa's army, they seem to adopt protective gear similar to what every plains dweller wears for combat.

Another thing, doesn’t Katari seem a little odd to say that they adore Heki and his kind. Maybe he and his people are sick of the mountain life, who knows.

I wonder what Yo Tan Wa needs from the Enshu tribe that old man Enpo said no before she even asked for the favor.

So far, Zhao has the upper hand. Ri Boku, personally took out one of Qin's generals, and his plan of attack, although less forceful, seems to be working better than Qin’s, including Ou Sen’s battle strategy. I guess I expected Ou Sen to be a little more wily slash sneaky slash skillful against Ri Boku. I also expected Ou Sen or Kan Ki to embed soldiers within the mass confusion, passing them on as hungry-desperate-citizens who would then, when the time is right, create an uproar. Forcing the gatekeepers of Gyou who by this point have no other choice but to drive out the citizens, if, they aim to reestablish order. Granting the infamous Kan Ki the perfect opportunity to overtake Gyou, yet no one took it. But, there’s a reason why this was never carried out. The cities had leaders and these leaders kept records of every citizen. I hate to say it, but Qin invaded Zhao with a less than perfect plan and expected to succeed, really? And, if food was always a key component why not take extra measures to make sure it doesn’t become an issue. I’m very disappointed with the veterans of this crusade. The question remains, was something considered, anything, just to get soldiers in?
