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.

Thank you for the chapter gentlemen! :)

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.

Funny, coz I have similar questions about this whole invasion as I'm sure others do. Maybe we can shed some light on it.

If not for the tidbits contributed by other characters Ou Sen would be a complete enigma. Ri Boku on the other hand is a little more transparent which is not a good thing because if we know what he plans to do then what’s keeping Ou Sen from knowing as well. More importantly the report from Gyou seems to have thrown a wrench in his plans forcing him to take an offensive stance which I guarantee Ou Sen will use to his advantage. Ri Boku’s main aim for winning this war was always clear, to do as little as possible believing that malnutrition would do most of the work for them. Sounds kinda pathetic when you think about it. And now, he’s changed his tune. What happened to overall experience? The kind great generals rarely lack. As for Ou Sen, his core strategy has always been about manipulation.

If he could it would be great, but I’m not sure how he would do it. Hou Ken isn’t on the menu Ri Boku is. He would have to intercept Shin and I’m not convinced we’ll see him again at least not on this side of the battlefield.

That would have to be Kyou Kai because she takes too many risks for the HSU.

It’s probably impossible but I wouldn’t mind A Ka Kin joining the HSU. His rough personality would likely clash with Ou Hon’s.

It's possible. I wouldn't put it past him, who knows Kan Ki may have already found a way to incite trouble inside Gyou even going as far as to agitate the civilians to help move things along a little more quickly. Because, I can't see him just sitting there and not try to attempt anything, especially after Ma Ron voiced his concern about lifting the siege when a single day of rations is all that remains. 

Perhaps, what the opening narrative intends to propose is that A Kou is mortally wounded which will eventually lead to his death, or that he is in a coma/unresponsive and why he's unable to participate for the time being. It’s possible for the meaning of some words to sometimes get lost in translation but this one just impacts the storyline and it comes a surprise to me since I’m such a fanatic of Kingdom and try not to miss a beat. :)

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.
