Kingdom / Chapter 666

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.

He took Mou Bu down with one arm swing, what bullshit. I'm so dissapointed right now I can't even think straight. There's no way Man U is stronger than him I don't believe it. Mou Bu didn't even get in a good swing this whole thing stinks.

Seems like Gen’U is just as formidable with the sword as Tou, and since the weapon of choice has a clear disadvantage against weapons twice its size, the user needs to get in close but this could also suggest that larger heavier weapons distort the user’s techniques or that he simply prefers to engage with a sword. No matter the reason behind it the fact remains that Gen’u is a threat and it doesn’t look like he’s going to disappear any time soon. But I can’t gauge his prowess on this alone because I don’t have anything about Ba Kai I can use as an indicator for an honest comparison. Anyway, I really want to focus on Mou Ki, he is not making any big moves nor am I impressed with him at the moment. It does look like he’s pushing really hard to crack what’s missing but I’m not sure he ever does.

What a big disappointment Ba Kai turned out to be, he was gone as fast as he was in. In fact, his departure was so swift it’s almost comical. I saw no sign of a struggle which means he was never a match for Gen’U. Why did Go Hou Mei even bring him along? If it were up to me, I would have chosen Gai Mou. Anyway, with him gone Gen’U could strike Jun Ei from behind or worse force his way straight to Go Hou Mei. So, does this mean Wei is at a disadvantage? Maybe, maybe not, but, it’s definitely a sign of weakness and the bigger question is, will it turn into a larger problem where Qin may have to provide support, basically forcing them to take a different approach which again means changing formation thus the pincer attack is no longer possible. Also, Go Hou Mei comes across as arrogant and ignorant but maybe it’s just me and we’ll have to wait and see.

Although the current match-up is interesting, I expected a clash between Mou Bu and Man U, Tou against Sen To Un and Roku O Mi against Gen U, especially before the union of Wei and Qin. Instead, we see how quickly Wei and Qin forget their temporary alliance who fight for the same cause yet strike at each other with a look that stinks of pure animosity, which, of course, stems from an event not so distant ago. Question, why didn’t Man U approach Mou Bu when all this began? I’m sure the opportunity was there. Mou Bu on the other hand without hesitation sought to quickly engage him, but why didn’t he? Back in chapter 651 Mou Bu sought him out instead he said he wanted to warm up, to me, this seems like a contradiction, a pitiful expression coming from a Supreme Commander who boasts as being greater.

I just realized that a soldier equipped with only the credentials of a strategist can man his/her very own army. Go Hou Mei strikes me like that type of character who's more brains than brawn or maybe all brains and no brawn, but I could be wrong.

I like the fact that we have depictions that lay out positions which is something I wish we had more of. Also, I hope this is it for surprise entries there’s more than enough armies on the battlefield without another army joining and making a mess of things but, if one did make it's way here then I’d love to see Ren Pa. He’s do for action plus his boy’s are on a whole other level (except for strength) when compared to Man U and Sen To Un, in my opinion. Meaning, they seem to be well-rounded and more attuned to the pressing situation.

This is going to be interesting as Han is right in the middle of this. Anyway, how many strategists are there facing Ju Ko Ou, two or three? Will this be the biggest factor that contributes to the downfall of Juuko City?

I’m concerned about one thing, is Mou Bu’s arm as good as new that it won’t turn into an annoyance/burden?
