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.

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.

Exciting chapter. Poor Goba, he’s fast but Yo Tan Wa is faster, she doesn’t even have a scratch. And, she didn't flinch at the fact that he's a larger opponent (pure amazon skill). Oh well, two brothers gone and only two remain. I want them all gone including Shun Sui Ju. Hopefully, the Quanrong pursuit is just that, a pursuit, and not part of a more elaborate ruse devised by Shun Sui Ju. We’ve seen how meticulous he can be, so using the surrounding area to snare and separate her forces to a manageable size isn’t out of the realm of possibilities. To some, it may seem like I’m putting him on a pedestal a little too soon, but, setting aside my personal bias, this dude is in a class all by himself. The little mastermind is proficient with observations (we’ve seen this), and his powers of deduction are just as good. Should we expect another ambush for Qin, or is it the other way around?

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.
