@mags_duranb, hi. :)

Speaking of Qin’s food supply. Ou Sen tasked everyone to take the food supply from every city they seized - right, and I don't remember the citizens ever talking about it to anyone. In fact, it's never mentioned. I think it's proper to presume that the citizens don't know what Qin did as all this took place after they were forced to evacuate their respective city. I wonder if Ri Boku and his people know about this, probably not. Either way, the 10 days they estimate Qin should have until they run out of food is a bit sketchy. Another thing, soldiers die every day on both sides, this automatically reduces the number of mouths that need to be fed on a battlefield. Taking this into consideration should mean that there is more food to go around for at least another day or two.

My bad guess I should've done this before posting, anyway I was wrong, the citizens were cast out after Qin took their food.  :-[

You’re right. In fact, the dude about to hand over the news to Ri Boku appears suspicious. He can’t even look him in the eye, like he's hiding something. My guess is Ri Boku suspects the info has been purposely distorted to mislead them and he’s just playing along for the moment.

We don't have an official number but I imagine the loss of life on both sides is astronomical. But, when I take a look at the panel where Kyou Kai and the HSU stand over all the grisly corpses, I can’t help but think that Zhao is probably in worse shape.

More and more, I see Zhao leveraging the success of this war on a single object - provisions. At first, I thought Shun Sui Ju just got lucky wiping out half of Heki’s food supply, however, according to chapter 516, this was all an orchestrated effort from the very beginning by Ri Boku to crush Qin’s invading army. I think, that somewhere in that genius mind of his, Ou Sen alone understands the complexity of this venture, possibly why he prepared for it as much as he could and why he hijacked all the food from Gyou’s neighboring cities.

True. Gyou'un is one tough cookie. I guess I expected too much from Shin. I thought that because he was younger he would an advantage but Gyou'un proved me wrong. I just hope that the rest of Zhao's deputies don't have the same level of stamina. I'd hate to see this whole thing get dragged any longer. And, I wonder how Yo Tan Wa and Kan Ki are holding up.

Thanks for the feedback! Of course you can comment here, silly.:) It's a real shame that more people don't. The main header for this forum indicates, "Discuss the prolific adventures of the Hi Shin Unit!" This forum is dedicated to Kingdom fans, everyone and anyone is welcome to share their opinion, hypothesis, and theory. Even create their very own topic related to Kingdom.:)

Ch.549 Pg.019   Shin is spent, but Gyuo’un is not? What happened?

Ch.549 Pg.012   Ou Hon looks more concerned with Shin’s fight than his own.

Ch.549 Pg.014   Shin finally acknowledges that he now knows how to use Ou Ki’s glaive. I guess from this point forward it won’t
                         be a hindrance. Its weight and size won’t factor against him instead, it will work for him. That's good news.

Ch.549 Pg.017   Gyou’un notices that the battleground is drenched in blood.

Ch.541 Pg.018   If I remember correctly this is the same ground that his master predicted that he and Chou Ga Ryuu would
                         slaughter the enemy drove after drove. Sadly, I think he got it wrong.

Ch.549 Pg.018   This scene is so freaking amazing, it's Priceless!

What type of an instinctual is Gyou’un? And, why do I get the feeling he’s stalling Shin? It’s as if he’s purposely keeping Shin from joining the real battle in the center. I wonder if he already knew, well in advance, that Shin was an instinctual as well. When I first read that an instinctual talent awoke within Shin, I researched it. I discovered three distinct types of intuition: ordinary, expert, and strategic. Gut instinct, a feeling we sometimes get, is considered ordinary intuition. Expert intuition is snap judgments, when you instantly recognize something familiar and respond accordingly. Strategic intuition is insightful, in other words, a flash of insight. I believe Shin has gradually moved from ordinary intuition to expert intuition in this arc. Gyou’un, on the other hand, is difficult to gauge, but I’m going to say that he is similar to Kei Sha, a general of strategic intuition but with more muscle. Using flashes of insight to devise a plot on the spot, and why I think he’s prepared something special for the HSU. Sounds counterintuitive but it’s the best way I can describe it.

Gyou’un thinks luck delivered Shin and his men to him but he’s wrong, dead wrong! They are there because of Shin. It’s no accident. Anyway, I think these guys are stronger than the men that accompany Shin. For the sake of argument, let’s assume that they are evenly matched which I seriously doubt coz the men that usually accompany a general can be deemed as elite so they should have the upper hand. Will they fare well? Or will they crumble?

Ch.547 Pg.10   Sorry, but no stroke of luck. It's called Shin-stinc-tual. Gyou'un should know this.

Ch.547 Pg.17  Gyou'un acknowledges that Ou Ki's glaive is more than just a tool.

Shin’s explosive temper and the tempo at which he hollers orders around is so funny. I don’t want to bore anybody by sounding redundant so I’ll skip the page-by-page details, but I will say that Shin is finally getting the chance to demonstrate his ability as an instinctual. Not only to his men, Ten and Kyou Kai, but to everyone in Qin. However, there’s a drawback - it isn't easy. And yet, to a certain degree, he’s able to connect the dots. He’s even had his fair share of realizations (I know, right?). And, as far as I know, he’s the only living instinctual in Qin’s army (but don’t quote me on this). Either way, it indicates that he is a significant asset. If he can learn to strategize, he’ll have something others don’t, and that’s the ability to read both types of generals on the battlefield. Let’s reflect on Duke Hyou. We know he was born on the battlefield and grew up there too. And similar to Shin, a person whose struggles paved the future. For all we know, he may have been an illiterate in his early years as a soldier. Definitely, a one of a kind who struck me as wild. My point is, that Shin isn't so different.

Ch.546 Pg.03

Usually, I’m against Shin leading his army, simply because he possess no talent for strategy or tactics. But, this is different, his opponent relies on instinct. A pattern Shin is well aware of and comfortable tackling. Unlike Ten and Kyou Kai, Shin isn't bogged down by Gyou’un’s erratic moves. Kyou Kai accompanied Shin because she knew Ten would never believe him, and at a time like this, would challenge any notion that he has the capacity to outwit Gyou’un or at the very least, interpret his every move. Something Ten, Kyou Kai, and the rest of the gang have not been able to do. And, it is worth noting, that while Shin is the only one actually doing better than the rest, it was Kyou Kai who realized that the Zhao general is the instinctive type. Ten was so engrossed in what she learned as a strategist that she failed to think outside the box. She overlooked the type of person they were in combat with and instead focused only on the irregular behavior present through every move which eventually, baffled her.
