I know right??? The captured guy who was in a tent full of torturers actually being tortured?  PLOT TWIST!  I never would have seen that coming and you totally ruined it. 

Next you'll tell us this whole thing ends with the unification of china or something

Thanks for the chapter!!

I say that's plausible.  I like the theory but I'm not going all in on it.

It would work, Seki clan, the torturers, could have infiltrated Zhao torturers, especially bc torturers wear hoods, so they're not hated in every day life.  Because, well, they torture.

But, it would be a risky plan.  not outside of Kanki's playbook, but risky.   it would count on that Zhao guy being mad enough to torture, but, not so made he didn't behead Raido on the spot.  So, ya maybe!

I love the idea tho!  Good prediction, no matter what! Thumbs up lol

well, Bao-face sure is strong, even for a nipple armor guy.  It should be an odd duel, neither weapon (glaive vs round Warhammer) can cancel out the others' strength- shin with speed and dexterity, bao-face with might. 

but then, Rei Warned us that bao-guy is using 'strange martial technique' so perhaps there's more to him than there appears.

Also, in case anyone missed it, the clinking bags the hooded guys held in the last panel, those are tools of torture.  Raido's gonna have an awful day.

Am I the only one who's noticed that all the big, strong-man types have nipples on their armor?

This guy has the most elaborate nipple-armor ever.  He must be a badass.

Zhao's major advantages are 'terrain' and 'army size,' and kanki has so far removed one general, at great cost.

I suppose we can give him credit for Hi Shin having a foothold, as, the sacrifice of Gykou Hyu lead to Anakin being able to flank the Zhao army on the wing.  So, we'll give him that too... but, ya, based on this performance, I think he's defiantly at his best as the vice general who "does wacky stuff to throw the balance in your favor."  But, maybe he's got a next move planned

Lies. 

"Exams?" Lies!

It's because of Yeti attacks.

The people deserve your honesty.

I WANT THE TRUTH


...Thanks for the chapter tho, despite your blatant attempts at propaganda and yeti coverups

Well we sure do disagree!

I think you probably disagree with Hara also.  If you recall, at the end of the chapter where the Six Great Generals were revived, there was a teaser that we were about to watch how giving generals such leeway was a 'double edged sword.'  After a whole chapter where all the other kingdoms reacted and said the same...

Also, Ousen was facing a man who both Kingdom and actual history call the greatest general of the era/all time(?).  And, he lost one general.  His losses were far more acceptable, less than Kanki's, and, this battle isn't even over yet.

Well agreed Kanki doesn't care about Ouhon's loss.  I'm saying, he definitely will care about Raido's loss.

His strategy was questionable when sacrificing Ouhon's army, because, even given kanki didn't care about them, Qin did.

Qin cannot afford to lose pieces that valuable, period, end of.  What they're doing is a marathon, beating all seven states in a limited time, efficient use of the resources armies' represent is huge.  in other words, they can't lose their elite forces for this to work.  If every engagement contains this amount of reckless loss, they will be ground down. 

Kanki may be too shortsighted to see that, or he may not care.

Either way, he will care about Raido dying.  So, therefore, I've gone from thinking he just didn't give a f, to, thinking his strategy was fundamentally flawed, even for him.

I had the same questions.  I found a good answer for one, I really hope there's a good answer for the other.

My answer for the one:

The archer unit was not used, because, that would have been two units the cavalry had to cover.  They're already covering the climb of the infantry, keeping the Zhao forces below the cliff off the infantry's back.   While the archer unit would have been helpful in the infantry's climb, shooting up, maybe not all THAT helpful- except for Jin and Tan.

but, think of the risk to Jin an Tan.  They would've immediately become high valued targets, with no real infantry support, far away from base.  Even if they could have gotten there and given support, getting back to base would've been (literal) murder.

Kanki.  Even if he wins using this strategy, he's now cost Qin Ouhon's unit, and himself lost Raido unit, which I think was his heaviest hitter.

I know that he had to win quickly against terrible odds.  But, compare him to Ousen in the last war... he may win, but, at what cost?

Ousen lost folk too.  But, not like this. 

I don't think Kanki is best operating on his own, in big, entrenched battles.  His strategies work, but, I see his weakness now.  If he is forced to fight straight up, no tricks... he's not very good.  In fact, he can't quite do it.  Here, he is still relying on his old tricks of trying to bait his enemy using brutality... I guess it worked.  But, he couldn't pay this high a cost many times.  I honestly think his army is way weaker without Raido, who was his strongest 'pure military' commander/force.  And the guy kanki himself said was the only one he could count on for this.


In other news, I look forward to seeing how Anakin showed up from the right, and, why they didn't just go that direction to start... I guess maybe the cliff guys opened a gap?

Ha, Yeti's will get. you ever time.

Some cultures believe it's bad luck to be an ingrate asking dumb questions: it makes them furious, more likely to descend upon mountain villages and cause havoc.

So, always, approach with due gratitude.  Lmao

Well, the chapter was actually read a few days ago.  The proofrearder lives in the mountains though, in a little town.  And right before he was about to upload it, a small family of angry yeti descended on the town, breaking things, and, in the process, the computer the final version on was smashed.

See, the yeti were mad because someone had shot a mountain goat, to eat. What the human who shot the goat didn't realize was, it was the Yeti cheif's daughter's best friend.  The chiefs daughter fell into a depression, refusing to eat, and tragically passed away through sadness and starvation.  The yeti clan demanded revenge, and so, destroyed the town. 

So, they had to start the scan from scratch again.  Because Yetis happened.

Ok so, real talk. On my first read, 682 was my least favorite kingdom chapter ever.  I had notes. 

but rereading it, I feel better for a few reasons.  Which I'll share.

1.  the first part of the cliff they started climbing: first read, I thought it was vertical.  Its not, quite, if you look, its too steep to walk up, too steep for horses, but not quite vertical.  Unless they are/were pushing upwards, their feet could've taken the majority of their weight, which matters.

2.  The second part of the cliff, the inverted part, wasn't inverted the whole way.  There were inverted sections, which, yes, would've been a nightmare to climb.  but other spots on which they could have rested temporarily. 

3. Once they were away from the falling rocks, they could have rested a bit, even on the inverted section.  kinda.

4.  Only the people in the lead, the best climbers, made it up the inverted cliff.  The rest went back to the sloped cliff, and climbed that.  And, the best climbers only climbed the inverted cliff for a small section of it.  Because Zhao waited until they were nearly at the top to start with the rocks. 

5.  The arrows.  That was my least favorite part- they were shot with arrows on the cliffs, but could grab their shields?  Well... on one hand, I don't remember shields being in previous panels. so I can't defend that.  But on the other, that section of cliff, the slope was such that in theory they could have released their hands to grab shields without falling.


OK.  Keeping my crown as kingdom's #1 apologist.  This chapter sure made it tough though and I really hope its not a sign of things to come.


Edit: 6.  when they reached the top, they were fighting the Zhao part of the army in charge of dropping rocks.  If Zhao were smart, it would have put its most useless/most injured members of infintry there, having no expectation they'd actually see combat.  It wasn't exactly 'tired hi shin' vs crack troops.
