It’s total BS! A Kou knows they only need one army against Gaku’ei. Nothing personal against Ou Hon but in my opinion the HSU is more than enough. Ou hon should assist A Kou. It’s sensible and demonstrates that A Kou has a good grasp on managing key resources. And who knows, this may even prevent the backfire. But, there's one important element we can't ignore. Will Shin allow his sniper to take out the enemy commander? I don't think so.

HSU key points that make them the ideal unit for this job:
  • Specialty - Slaying enemy commanders.
  • Two, not one, freaks of nature (Shin and Kyou Kai).
  • Super long-range assault team (Jin & Tan).

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?

Thanks bro. :)

You know, Heki really surprised me. Which is strange considering I've read this, oh, I don't know, several times already. He just never stood out as a promising individual, and I can't imagine why. But, I did notice that Ou Sen realized how valuable he can be, that is, when situation calls for it. At least, Heki is getting some recognition by people other than Ou Sen.

Kingdom / General Heki
« on: April 14, 2018, 10:11:35 pm »
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.

There are a few things I'd like to address that I believe are important. I can think of two good reasons why Yo Tan Wa can’t afford to lose this fight. If she’s defeated it will affect the morale of the other armies and alter their performance. Also, we can’t overlook that a personal vendetta against Qin’s mountain King may actually exist. After all, she is responsible for Ri Boku’s humiliating defeat at the Battle of Sai. I believe that Shun Sui Ju won’t settle for anything less than a vicious payback. And going by his plan of execution, from what we’ve seen so far, it looks like he seeks to completely annihilate them. Secondly, if she’s gone then everything she and Sei worked for could disappear. The alliance between these two culturally different people will go back to the way it was after the betrayal, a deception that still emanates among the elders of her tribe. And all she worked for including her goals will vanish. So you see, there’s a lot at stake for both cultures. She needs to win this.

Any thoughts about old man Enpo? Do you think his people are vital? If so, how will they help reverse the tide?

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.

Yeah, I’ve said this as well. There are things about Ou Sen’s game plan that we know nothing about. To me, what appears to stand out is how he handled Gyou. The steps he took no doubt warrant merit but it has yet to yield anything fruitful. And, if he has indeed taken a conservative approach as you suspect, then it would be wise to put it in high gear and dial things up a notch. Time is of the essence! Originally, the plan was to capture Gyou so that in three years they can take Kantan and destroy Zhao. Believe me when I tell you that I’m as optimistic as the next guy and try real hard to remain neutral but I can’t ignore certain facts, that winning seems hopeless. And just like you, I don’t see Gyou falling to Qin on the basis of provisions alone. It needs something else, an additional catalyst is necessary to make it happen. And yet, I don’t understand how they still have twenty days worth of food, especially when you consider the number of citizens taking refuge. Was the reference to “Locusts” just a tease? I’m surprised they haven’t already hurled all that feces at Kan Ki. Desperate times call for desperate measures. ;D

When Ou Sen disappeared from Retsubi to scout his next target he found Gyou impenetrable. He knew that if he pressed forward certain avenues would cease to exist. Among them, the path back home - turning Gyou into a base of operations - and a supply line. Seizing food from nearby cities was his idea alone and it addressed the elimination of a supply line. The other two continue to be a big problem. At first, I thought, Qi will undoubtedly support Qin. That it would somehow assist Ou Sen with supplies, and possibly the battle, or both. And if necessary, even help with an escape route. It's the impression I got the moment King Ou Ken peacefully surrendered to Ei Sei. If they can turn Gyou into a permanent post then Retsubi is as good as theirs and Qi is in Qin's good graces.

Also, I’m a bit surprised that no other state appears to want to assist Zhao. There’s an opportunity here that no one seems to recognize due to blind ambition and it’s twofold. Help Zhao, and cripple Qin to a great degree. It’s essentially what the coalition was after except it failed miserably. Anyway, there's no denying that both Ou Sen and Ri Boku represent what we consider to be the pinnacle of genius. But when you weigh one against the other it’s clear who is at a greater disadvantage. I hate to say this, but I don’t believe we have seen all of Ri Boku’s hidden assets. The fight ain’t over yet and I suspect he has at least one or two more surprises ready for Qin. Wish I could say the same for Ou Sen. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the Mou Bu Kool-Aid lol. ;)

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?

Will Yo Tan Wa allow Heki to sacrifice himself? I don’t know. Maybe not. Believe it or not, he represents a lot. Not that he’s the reason why they are here instead he reminds Yo Tan Wa what's at stake. She chose long ago to support Qin’s King. Then again, Heki could surprise us all. He’s not an idiot and according to his stats above average but from what we've seen lately this is questionable. Personally, I like Heki and have nothing against him. Maybe this is his time to grow as well. Maybe this is where Heki breaks out of his shell and transforms, if you get my drift. Does anybody know if his army has any strong, intelligent, and experienced soldiers? People he can rely on to get things done. Hmm...I can't think of any.
Ch.552 Pg.20

I get the hint that the three tribes Yo Tan Wa appointed to kill the three brothers (Goba, Bwen, and Tork) are more than just the mightiest members currently in her entire army. I betcha the Mera tribe has special abilities and get things done lots different than we’re used to.
Ch.552 Pg.10

Why is old man Enpo's attire different from what the tribe people wear? It looks more like what plains folk wear. Or - is he now, or maybe once long ago, a member of an assassin clan?
