Kingdom / Chapter 607
« on: July 11, 2019, 05:57:49 pm »
What an explosive chapter. I got goose bumps reading every word. But, Ou Sen didn’t say anything Ri Boku didn’t already know yet he made clear that everybody knows that his king, yup Zhao’s king and those above him, will be this country’s downfall. And, if Ou Sen knows this, then it’s a safe bet that the other kingdoms know it as well. We all know that this is Zhao’s greatest weakness. Zhao’s king is a self-centered moron willing to sacrifice everything for his own amusement. I pity the fool, like Mr. T once said but I’ll be happy the day this king is gone for good. Anyway, I can’t wait to see who wins the wager, will Gyou fall to Qin or hold for Zhao. It’s the key to winning or losing this long struggle, depending on which side you are on, of course. I hope we get a one-on-one soon. I’d rather see a brutal clash cause I’ve had enough of witty remarks already.

I’m a visual learner so all this stuff about Ou Sen knowing exactly just what to do is fuzzy to me so correct if I'm wrong, he’s employing strategy with instincts on the battlefield in order to combat Ri Boku’s hybrid army. And, he gives Ri Boku proper respect so we know he’s been taken him serious all this time, and it explains why he has been so careful not to make any unnecessary movements against the center army.

I believe this is a unique surprise, Ou Sen, out in front looking to confront Ri Boku is both admirable and perplexing at the same time. I didn’t know he had it in him and yet I’m confident he's well-versed in combat, just like his son. It’s as if he’s personally calling Ri Boku out for a one-on-one. But I need to confess, I’m still not clear on what his true intentions are even with this bold move considering that he’s always been the type of general with a reputation that maintains a safe distance in battle. All I can think is that he realized Ri Boku’s army is executing tactical maneuvers that are too laborious to tackle, which makes Ou Sen’s move interesting. My hunch is that he knows the only way his army has a chance at headway is to coax Ri Boku out, or he sees something no one else sees. That Shin and the others will soon head straight for Ri Boku. In that case, he needs to draw as many soldiers away from the center so that Shin can make his move against Ri Boku with as little resistance as possible.

Kinda dissapointed that we didn’t get a glimpse inside Gyou, especially the look on Earl Ki’s face when he soon realizes that Ri Boku has decided to let them wait one more day before he rides to their aid. It doesn’t matter one way or another what Ri Boku plans to do because Ou Sen won’t give him the chance to rescue Gyou. Anyway, I had a feeling that Gyou’un would meet both Shin and Ou Hon like this but he’s forgetting about Kyou Kai. I don’t believe he considers her part of the equation which is a mistake.

(Ch.604 Pg.19)   I am way too tired to try and figure out what Fu Tei means by this.

I don’t know what Ri Boku is talking about cause I can’t see how Earl Ki is going to maintain control over civilians, men and women who have not been trained, and then there’s the children. No parent wants to see a child go through this. I think he’s underestimating the gravity of the situation Earl Ki faces.

The battle between Ou Sen and Ri Boku is no doubt going to be interesting but the battle on the right looks like it might be more impressive now that Gyou’un is seeking to destroy Ou Hon and Shin. With this new attitude the Zhao could destroy the right wings plan to sideswipe Ri Boku giving him the opportunity to concentrate his forces directly at Ou Sens army something Ou Sen was hoping to avoid from the get-go.

What? Did A Kou die? When?

I'll be back because I need to confirm this.

Update... I couldn't find anything that expressly states that A Kou is dead. 8)

What Ou Sen’s army needs is a touch of instinct with their maneuvers because the Zhao generals are way too fluent in tactics matching Qin’s every move. They need to change the tone or this is going to take a while but maybe not, especially now that Ri Boku has gone on the offence and all because of the urgent news from Gyou which can only mean one thing, that it is in their best interest to defeat Qin asap because they cannot continue to feed the civilians any longer. I hope this is the reason because it is the only thing that makes enough sense to me unless there’s some other event taking place behind the walls of Gyou for example discord between the people. We need to remember that not everyone inside is from the same city, same country, but not the same municipality so there may be some conflict that may have slowly generated out of control by now, it is plausible.

I like how we get to observe what’s going on with everyone involved on both sides. But, to my disappointment we didn’t get anything about Ou Hon’s official position and strategy. Also, we didn’t get any more news on whether or not any other machinations exist within Gyou, and if so, who set them in motion? I’m also interested to know just exactly how much of the food supply remains at their disposal, is it even a concern yet? Are the doors about ready to burst open with crazed citizens? These people have been cooped up for almost two weeks that’s enough to drive anyone mad.

It seems that Ko Zen was nothing like Ou Hon’s adjutant and instead chose to pamper Mou Ten. Mou Bu didn’t want anything to do with him and I don’t blame him, who likes changing diapers, but if he did maybe he would’ve turned out stronger and likely to inherit Ou Hon’s mean streak. I’m pretty sure that would have made his character less interesting or maybe not.

I’m not sure I know what Hou Ken’s role is anymore. Ri Boku said he seeks closure, so why attack the wrong crowd. Is he that dense? It’s not like he specifically searched for Shin among the soldiers, no, he just randomly attacked and wandered right back into the bush. I’m beginning to think that he’s mental and therefore unstable in fact I’m altogether losing interest in the character. Zhao’s enemies and fcol his enemies have been on his land for two weeks engaged in three distinct zones and it’s only now relevant to him. We all know why he is granted the military rank of GG and why he holds the distinguish position of TGH yet it seems wasted on him. It’s Ri Boku’s fault because he can’t control him or reason with him. In critical situations he’s worthless if he can’t contribute to the team when necessary. As a Zhao he needs to be held accountable but Ri Boku is way too lenient.

Unless Gyou’un is ambidextrous I don’t see how he can make a difference. Wonder if Ri Boku knows about his arm. It doesn’t matter because Shin isn’t going to engage him or Ba Nan Ji because Ou Sen has finally given the right wing an order but that means that if they succeed their backs are vulnerable to the same army they’re meant to elude. Maybe Ou Hon is meant to keep this army occupied. I don’t think he’s going to like that.

I’m still recovering from last night’s tragic episode of Game of Thrones and now Kingdom hits us with Hou Ken. Now is not the time for this bs. He just had to pick the wrong crowd. If he’s looking for Shin just ask I’m sure someone will point him in the right direction to his camp lol.

Hectic day people, I couldn’t wait to get home and read the chapter again in peace and quiet. Wow, Shin is unstoppable! He’s clearly on another level and it happened right under my nose lol. I reminded of the time Ou Ki gave his unit a name (ch.121), but there was more and not in this order, he said that, “if he killed the enemy’s talented generals, especially the ones more capable at leadership or analyzing the field, the greater the disruption when they are lost” (ch.120). I don’t know if he was listening or not but it rings true. What will Chou Ga Ryuu’s colleagues do now? How will they cope with his defeat? I suspect they may search for a way to approach Shin as a team coz I don’t see how else they can beat him.

Do we attribute Rin Shou Jo’s foresight as genuine or is his deteriorating health responsible? Who knows? At least, we get the big reveal. Still, I think he* got it wrong cause the only one ‘slaughtering enemies drove after drove’ is the HSU. This is my takeaway concerning their friendly banter.

Hope Chou Ga Ryuu puts up a good fight. Anyone else worried about the HSU’s HQ?

I don’t know what to expect from the following chapter. Twice now, we have all been witness to some sort of indication, that Chou Ga Ryuu has finally realized the essential meaning behind his lord’s last words. Either he’s preparing to die or finding another way out of this predicament. I can’t say which for sure, but whenever he recalls a conversation with his CO I assume he’s seeking for a solution, basically how to better handle Shin and the HSU. This is how I interpret his short flashes of recollection. I wish we had more insight into what is going through his mind instead of the small doses that keep distracting him, and all of us.

I’m a little surprised that Kyou Kai has the strength to join the HSU. Our previous mental image portrayed a different Kyou Kai, someone who might take longer to recoup. I expected to see Ou Hon or A Kou, well, more so Ou Hon. I guess Kyou Kai’s medicine proved to be nothing more than just plain old ointment and there’s nothing miraculous about it. Anyway, I wonder what Ri Boku is thinking. We know he’s been keeping tabs on his army’s wings and it’s impossible to make an assist without Ou Sen capitalizing on it. But, will he or someone on his team take the risk? And, will Chou Ga Ryuu face Shin or mislead us all?

A little busy right now but definitely want to discuss Kyou Kai anyway I need time to absorb the rest of the chapter.

To all who are the best, indeed!

I ignored Shin’s injury last week because I honestly thought it was pretty insignificant. I thought he would brush it off as nothing more than a flesh wound but, that’s not the case. And now, Kyou Kai is forced to push her limits once again. I want to say I like her new plan but the Zhao are now aware of her weakness. If she drifts too far ahead of everyone else she may not get the breather she needs to continue. Then again, everyone is doing the same, so why do I feel like this is all a big mistake. Well, I hate to stress this fact but with everyone so focused on getting Chou Ga Ryuu it’s possible and maybe even accurate to say, that they are oblivious to everything else, especially HQ. Personally, I don’t care what happens to HQ. The only reason I refer to it (again) is because Ten is there. And, I’d hate for history to repeat itself. Suppose she's taken hostage? What then? Chou Ga Ryuu’s tactics kinda remind me of Ou Sen lol. Is he really running or is it a lure? I hope it’s the former then again there might be no limit to his schemes. I hope I’m wrong.

The one thing that concerns me the most about this chapter is that Chou Ga Ryuu is also aiming for the HSU’s HQ. Even if a separate detachment manages to confront Ten I still believe she prepared for something like this just in case. Still, I’m troubled by this because we don’t know if this group is specialized just for this type of duty. Maybe the archer brother’s job is to guard the HQ. I don’t know. And, we didn’t get anything about GHU and A Kou’s army. How are they doing?
