If it weren’t for Shin’s and Ou Hon’s synchronized charge, which by the way was unintentional, one could say that it’s just a reckless move and that’s that. But to the cleverly apt regarded as peculiar. They might begin to suspect that it was deliberately orchestrated, especially when you gamble everything on certain factors to prove your case. Chou Ga Ryuu expected to see them dilapidated instead it’s the complete opposite. Did he miscalculate? Will it cost them everything? I don’t think that they can afford to simply rely on circumstance and expect things to turn out like they predict. That’s a bit shortsighted, don’t you think? I don't believe that anyone who clings to pure logic and only logic could make sense of this charge except for Gyou'un, maybe.

Not sure who is facing whom, but I’d like to see Ou Hon against Chou Ga Ryuu and Ba Nan Ji & Gyou’un team up against Shin. This should raise the stakes and allow the A Kou army to concentrate on everyone else. I, for one, am not convinced this haphazard charge will translate into a victory because it’s likely that any one of the three veterans have seen this desperate move before. On that depressing note, what if Hou Ken decides to show up? What then? There are too many variables left unchecked, if you ask me.

I get the impression that Ou Sen is deliberately preparing Ri Boku for something brutal. Like he's waiting for the perfect opportunity to deal a crippling blow and he can only do this if he's fooled everyone into thinking that all is lost otherwise his plan could fail. He has to maintain a sense of hopelessness, despair, distress (you get the point), to attain the element of surprise. Doing so keeps the enemy preoccupied and your true objective remains obscure even to the keenest of eyes capable of recognizing the smallest distinction resembling a plan. In the same way that Ei Sei kept all knowledge of reinforcements a secret during the battle at Sai in order to surprise Ri Boku, Ou Sen might be seeking to do the same. We know he planned well in advance. We also know that he put something in motion well before any of them had a chance to set foot in Zhao. So, if he sends the right wing support he could jeopardize everything.

Okay. So, Ou Hon’s mom, Shukei, for some odd reason took the truth to her grave. What made her hold her tongue? Was it by choice? Is there a motive? An incentive? Is it revenge? Why keep it secret? Did she benefit by doing so, or more precisely does Ou Hon benefit if no one knows the truth. Is she really the woman she was made out to be? I think she was and this caused her trouble. Intellect can be a double edged sword, so it goes without saying that anyone with such striking qualities tend not to be overlooked and instead attract the attention of more than just your average admirer. I wouldn’t be surprised if Ryo Fui, who was a master manipulator, knew Shukei. Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if he is Ou Hon’s real father and I’d go as far as to insinuate that Ri Shi could have a shot as well. So many possibilities exist, especially with Ryo Fui because of his cunning and shrewd nature. But, I'm going to keep it real and stick with Ou Sen as his father. The point behind this rumor could be nothing more than to undermine Ou Sen by someone who vowed to seek revenge. It could be anyone, even someone within his own house. Malice and spite don’t have bounds, just look at the way he forces enemies into his own circle once he defeats them.

Crazy gossip, right? Definitely, GoT drama! The truth is, I don’t know what to think about this new twist concerning Ou Hon’s birthright. Is it true? Is Ou Hon a bastard? Or is he truly the offspring of blue blood? I don’t know, but I am beginning to understand why he treats Shin the way he does. I think it is why he didn’t press the issue when Ou Sen failed to consent with the proposal, that he should take command of the right. And, it’s obvious why he doesn’t want to talk about it. The last thing he wants is a rumor if in fact it is a rumor to spread. So who is his old man? Is it Kan Ki? Is there, and was there…ever, a love triangle between them? Then again, the whole thing could just be a distraction because we luv those, am I right? So, is Ou Hon a distraction to Ou Sen or is it the other way around?

I don’t get it, why is she willing to wait this out. I see a unique opportunity to increase the odds in Qin's favor. Yo Tan Wa could shoot provisions over Kan Ki’s way and possibly with enough to spare. They now sit within the security of a fortress and I’m almost certain they have the ability to gather enough food for more than three day's worth for both armies. The Quanrong may not have the same stash Lord Earl Chouki had over at Gyou, but a stockpile nonetheless. And, due to a decrease in numbers to both Yo Tan Wa's & the Quanrong's army I’m almost certain they have less mouths to feed so it shouldn’t be an issue. And another thing, I know that Shun Sui Ju is currently camping over at Retsubi but I can’t shake the feeling that he might attempt to destroy some, or all, of Kan Ki’s food supply like he did with Heki. I doubt he will idly stand by and do nothing but wait to see who runs out of food first, I know I wouldn’t.

Also, I think it’s funny that the right wing expects new orders from Ou Sen. What they should do is take what little time they have to assess the situation, come to a consensus, and make the appropriate call the same way Mou Ten does on the fly.

There’s a couple of things Yo Tan Wa could still do to help Qin reach their primary goal. She could destroy the remaining Zhao army and kill Shun Sui Ju, and force the Quanrong to help them gain access into Gyou. Unfortunately, everyone is at their limit, and the one thing they prefer more than anything else is to fill their bellies (and some R and R, if possible). I'm afraid that Shun Sui Ju is going to pose a big problem in the near future. He now knows how Yo Tan Wa works, and with Ri Boku, he can devise a grand scheme to destroy her. No sirree! This won’t do. I’m not okay with letting him go. Then again, I think Yo Tan Wa wants to take this opportunity to acclimate the Quanrong to her presence for good measure.

Tag team action seems to be the common theme in this arc. And while that’s all fine and dandy it’s hard to acknowledge a grand slam by Yo Tan Wa. The issue, which is debatable, the manner in which king Rozo is defeated, however, I blame him for his own death. No matter how difficult it is to accept we need to understand that he alone sanctioned the end result. Also, it’s my sentiment that Shun Sui Ju basically abandoned the Quanrong. I wonder, if Ri Boku had been in the same situation would he have done the same. I don’t think so. What I don’t understand is that by avoiding one problem he creates another. Meaning, the principal objective behind his every attempt was to secure Yo Tan Wa’s death. It’s also why he lured them away from Ri Boku and into Quanrong territory. To deliver them to the Quanrong, to shield Ri Boku from getting blindsided by another army, and to gain an advantage (as common sense dictates) the indigenous population is generally more familiar with their neck of the woods, especially the terrain versus outsiders. Well, what’s stopping Yo Tan Wa from doing so now? Nothing really. His poor judgement in this particular situation is a contradiction to the character he’s established thus far. This is not his typical modus operandi. You telling me, that he, or anyone with superior intellect can’t see how this drastically affects everything he’s worked for. I don't buy it. What happened to maintaining the upper hand?

Ch.571 Pg.06    A tribute to one of the strongest, King Rozo (aka Skull Crusher). Shin would have loved to go toe-to-toe with this monster. We salute you King Rozo!

It looks like all the strong fighters for Quanrong are on the battlefield so old man Enpo should takeover quickly.

Pretty difficult to gauge who will be the victor. As we’ve seen time and time again size doesn’t necessarily give you an edge. King Rozo and the Feego king both appear to be a powerhouse.

I’m pleased to see Kitari destroy Bunen with her own hands, out of all of Rozo’s brothers this one I dislike the most. His hairdo (antenna) makes me recollect the creepy Terraformar.

Ch.572 Pg.11       What do you guys think? Is Heki thinking of becoming a martyr?

I’m having a tough time distinguishing whether Yo Tan Wa is strategic or instinctual in nature. Where would you place her overall performance? And, does it fit the profile? I don’t believe that all individuals with a tendency to gravitate towards instincts follow a unique pattern. It’s obvious that every personality has its own highlights not to mention some can be more impulsive than others (Shin is a good example). I also understand that the same argument can be made about strategic individuals. What stands out is Yo Tan Wa’s approach to a means. Particularly, the process which lacks any degree of clear systematic direction. And here’s why. Kitari just realized what Yo Tan Wa was aiming for. Wasn’t she in the same room the day Yo tan Wa shared the battle plan? She was (Ch.552). So what gives? Do you believe Yo Tan Wa is the instinctive type or that she relies to some degree on strategy?

Yikes! Rozo is colossal in stature. He reminds me of Triple Mace (Ch.180 Pg.04). Anyway, I think he’s a monster. His pupils turned vertical a sure sign this guy ain’t normal by any means. Are we looking at the origins of a shapeshifter? Possibly, lol just kidding.

Bunen’s crazed reaction, as observed by his men, to want to take Yo Tan Wa for himself tells me that he may have a strong aversion for his brother and seeks to piss him off, or he believes that he’s owed compensation for his accomplishment against Qin. Either way, I think he’s looking for trouble.

Kinda difficult to see how Enpo and his men are doing. Not sure if they took the Quanrong by surprise or not. We don’t have much to go by.

Ch.571 Pg.06   Rozo's oval pupil, maybe he's on narcotics.

It’s official, Ba Jio is superhuman and his kicks are freaking lethal. I don’t even know how to address the three blades sticking out of his back. Tough hide, I guess. But that sounds like an understatement. It’s obvious he somehow snapped the blades though the odds of this happening suggests that Kingdom now borders on the supernatural. Anyway, enough of that, I’m glad that Tajifu and company made it to the rescue. I honestly thought that we were going to see Yo Tan Wa become a POW.

Seeing Yo Tan Wa get manhandled like this is so heart-wrenching.:'( And where the hell is Heki?>:( I thought he was going to support Yo Tan Wa.

So old man Enpo is about to attack the Quanrong city. I guess this was the plan all along *(Ch.552 Pg.11). I get it. Hell, if they can’t have Gyou whose location puts them closer to Kantan’s border (and what the Zhao call the central plains) then this fort is just as good as any within Zhao territory. Albeit the city they’re about to seize is nowhere near the capital, it is situated within Zhao’s heartland. What does this mean? It means that Shun Sui Ju screwed up big time. He, and all of Zhao, would have been better off if the city’s existence had been kept undisclosed from Yo Tan Wa that is of course, if they manage to occupy and hold it.

I don’t know what to think anymore. The more the story develops the more convinced I feel this whole campaign is a waste of time. For a while now (it’s no secret), I’ve had nothing but mixed feelings about this invasion. So many obstacles to overcome, including the ones they knew nothing about. While I’m not at all pleased that the majority of Yo Tan Wa’s army is gone, I am delighted that the Quanrong have equally suffered a great loss as well. Still, I don’t see where this piece of the story is going considering I was under the impression that Qin’s mountain tribes play a hand helping Ei Sei achieve his goal. Maybe, she was never meant to help Qin in that way. At this point, who knows? And, as far as I know, Kan Ki’s corner isn’t any closer to success. I believe the same can be said about Ou Sen’s conflict. By my assessment, everything seems lost and unification of any kind will have to wait.

Pg.13 (sidenote), I can’t tell for sure but Yo Tan Wa’s fractured ankle although unfortunate looks like it was brought about by her own horse. 

Ch.567 Pg.15   Thanks to Bajio Yo Tan Wa survived this.

I prefer to avoid engaging in speculation, but it’s all I’ve got. It’s just a hunch and hope it comes across as sound and valid, after all, I don’t have any hard facts except the rations to justify my assumption, so I’ll just dive right to it. What if, Ou Sen decides to evacuate? For argument's sake, I will continue to express that what little rations remain is not enough to continue the struggle any longer. He picks up Kan Ki, they then appear behind the Quanrong, allowing Yo Tan Wa the perfect opportunity to escape. As it stands, she has nowhere to go except straight through her enemy. Despite this, the only great comfort she has right now is that the bulk of her army has assembled around her (like a hive protecting its queen).

Ch555 Pg.07&08   I believe that Ou Sen and Kan Ki think alike in this regard. They know when enough is enough.
