Kingdom / Chapter 678

I am not happy with Kan Ki's laid-back attitude, while he enjoys the comforts of safety a majority of good men sacrifice their lives for what, his pleasure. You can't call this a strategy there's no rhyme or reason to the number of senseless deaths, in fact, it can only hurt them in the long run besides Ri Boku is still out there waiting for an opportunity.

I've never been able to pin down Kan Ki's true aim with anything he does and not that I really care but it could help address what he's truly after. So far, I've seen nothing but unnecessary carnage in his wake. I'm convinced that he feeds on death and it doesn't matter where it comes from Qin or Zhao, as long as it manifests, he's content. The more I study his facial expression the more I'm convinced it reflects a state of satisfaction and delight like an artist finishing a masterpiece, sorry Kan Ki fans but he is just plain creepy. Anyway, the second half of the chapter is far more interesting specially when Ma Ron tries to manipulate Ou Hon even going as far as swinging a low blow right in front of everyone there, this guy is the worst kind of bully there is trying to inject fear, obligation, and guilt, all in one setting. What I don't understand is why Shin is keeping tabs on Ou Hon.

While I am more than excited the Six have been put in play against the neighboring states I feel like we've been mislead into thinking that Yo Tan Wa's other role is actually less important than it really is. Becoming one of the Six for Qin suggests that her role as Queen of the mountain tribes has been underplayed and understated. Was this the plan all along? Is she giving this up? So what happens to them in all of this? Last I remember Qin wasn't trying to establish a close rapport with her people.

Unless there is a general with exceptional qualities or great general among the ranks of Qin I am unaware of, I expect the next "Six" to be someone already among the King's circle. Shou Hei Kun comes to mind, his future with Qin is still uncertain and his past whether direct or indirect will eventually have a role to play.

And so begins the era of Qin's true conquest!

Both Rei and Shiki fought long and hard to stay alive and never crossed paths until they were the only two left standing (which means they had no ill intention against eachother) that's when Shiki turned first and with her sword on Rie's neck exclaimed not to move but Rei instinctively thrusted hers into Shiki. My guess is she never realized what Shiki did until it was too late. This is probably the root of her anguish and torment, that she killed the one person who meant so much to her. These girls are young and inexperienced with only one mission in mind and why I dislike this whole assassin clan thing. Anyway, I think this whole mess with Rei is just a distraction the real struggle is between Zhao and Qin.

Maybe she didn't kill Shiki in the ritual. It's possible that she killed everyone who participated in the ritual because Shiki was taken down in front of her and she couldn't do anything about it but this doesn't make sense because there can be only one, at least that's what I think but I could be wrong. This whole ritual thing is kinda pointless because the more soldiers you have the better off you are, I understand you're trying to create a heartless killing machine one without remorse but not everyone is cut out for this sort of thing.

I'm not convinced she's a match for Kyou Kai and I'm having trouble believing she was dispatched by the Shiyuu to exact revenge, everything up until this point seems weak in terms of evidence. The fact that she went from army to army in search of Kyou, that she didn't know where her target was, that she didn't keep her presence as an assassin hidden are all strange. Then there's her transformation into the White Phoenix which to me looks like she hasn't mastered it yet and why I think she is not the clan's ritual champion. Could this transformation lead her to victory against a more nimble level headed dance? I doubt it. Also, she mentions that more than one tribe member has broken the clan's ritual (Ch.664 Pg.07), so, is she trying this alone in order to make a name for herself without the Shiyuu's approval?

I brought this up last week and it looks like she hasn't gotten it down just right yet, it looks like she is pushing herself beyond what her physical form can handle at the moment. Going into the trance (White Phoenix) seems to transform her into a vicious monster but is it safe for her and those around her meaning those on her side. I don't remember Kyou Kai ever pushing herself except when it counts. The Zhao are no match for her so why go to the extreme, you know, save it for when you face a formidable foe these guys are small fry.

I remember having a discussing some years ago that Kyou Kai’s past would eventually come back to haunt her. That the destruction of her assassin clan would incite revenge and now one of her sisters who seems just as powerful has appeared and if this doesn’t blow anyone’s mind then the fact that she called herself Kyou Kai’s junior should. Where has she been hiding all these years and why show up now in this battle while she recuperates from one of the most difficult struggles she’s ever had to endure. Wonder if she witnessed the clan’s elimination by Kyou Kai and was to young/afraid to oppose patiently biding her time for this very moment.

It’s good to see Mou Ten and Ou Hon let loose besides it can only do good now that they’ve grown even stronger. What puzzles me is that the HSU sorry the Hi Shin Army is having so much trouble. I don’t see how this is true because the way I see there shouldn’t be any problems pushing the Zhao back, that’s what Ten is for. It’s up to her to fill the gap meaning she should manage the remaining resources even if temporary so that they don’t risk similar outcomes in the future. She should develop a theoretical framework that predicts the risk of recurring conflict based on past struggles and always have a contingency plan B and even plan C just in case.

I like so many understand the importance of good advice and whether or not one takes it may not be a big deal but when you hold the lives of others in your own hands you have an obligation, unfortunately some feel it's a burden like the king. But King Enkou of Beki should’ve known better than to surrender to Chu. All he really did was seal everyone’s fate. Surrendering to Chu’s psycho King or anyone with a seriously warped moral compass spells certain doom for all involved. Man’U knew this but King Enkou was a chump. He relied on politics and believed they could end the conflict with Chu if they just surrender but all he did was send them to an early grave. I’m not sure how this is Man’U’s burden? He did the best he could to protect them. It was the King who destroyed the kingdom the moment he decided to negotiate any form of surrender. Chu has to go and I can’t wait for the day it does.  Anyway, what does Ka Rin think she’s going to do?

On a different note, Ka Rin has a tragic past which I may touch on in the future.

It took me a while to grasp why Man U is so insistent on wanting to speak with Mou Bu and to be honest I didn’t get it at first but I think he’s talking about deceit and all of its deceptive limbs. I believe he’s talking about Shou Hei Kun (SHK), probably, and I mean probably, but maybe Man U has some sort of connection with SHK and why Ju Ko Ou (JKO) insists on speaking with Mou Bu as well. This could be the reason why they believe that they are not Chu but at the same time they are (Ch.654-Pg.20). Also, in the previous chapter JKO said that they were never meant to protect Juuko so is he suggesting that they were meant to protect SHK and his duly yet sorely anticipated reign of Chu? I would also like to mention that while JKO does state the reason for not being Chu yet they are, it’s only his and not Man U’s or the other generals’ words but I could be wrong. Suddenly, these characters have depth and some sort of mystery surrounding them.

Not only is the old saying, “actions speak louder than words” appropriate, it seems to define the chapter quite well. I knew from the very beginning that Qin would dominate Chu yet I expected the battle between the two strongest forces, Mou Bu and Man U, to be a little more meaningful in terms of context but at this point it doesn’t matter because Qin will defeat Chu and the remaining Chu army will retreat. Go Hou Mei will be acknowledged as the Wei General who crushed Chu’s legendary Juuko army an army led by the second strongest in all of Chu and hopefully we can transition back to Zhao.

Sorry, but I disagree with the chapter’s title it should be, “Strongest Arm in the Six Kingdoms” or something to that effect since to my knowledge he is the only other person who has ever knocked down Mou Bu. And while I’ll agree that there is a lot going on in this chapter, the one thing I am dying to see is how exactly Ryuu Han’s Golden cavalry will keep Sen To Un from tearing Go Hou Mei apart. Also, the siege towers are definitely a big surprise I didn’t expect an attack on Juuko this early specially from Wei and my guess is Karen hasn’t either.
