Kingdom / Chapter 632 & 633

Not excited about last week’s chapter. It was the granddaddy of plot twists if ever I’ve seen one. To me, it lacked cohesion and I had hoped it was all a bad dream coming from Hou Ken’s mind as he laid there all alone with no one to console him. Anyway, I'm ready to move forward to a new chapter.

Kan Ki’s new slogan “will not kill civilians” is plain laughable and would ring true if it were a different army shouting it. I’m sure we’ve heard this before, the villain swears he won’t kill ya only to have one of his henchmen do the dirty work for him. These people are so naive it’s distasteful. Have they considered the lives of the youth and feeble among them? This is war, if they march out straight into Kan Ki’s claws he will use them as a bargaining chip against Ri Boku, you can bet on it.

It makes no sense whatsoever that Hyou doesn’t remember what the king looks like since he spent time with the king when he was alive, and it’s because of the king that he’s dead. The other thing that bugs me is that I believe Shin would have come back to the world of the living, he would have walked through the portal of light on his own, with the help of Hyou, of course, so Kyou Kai’s sacrifice feels like it’s in vain. Anyway, I still don’t get why Shin’s death was so important. The afterlife gave us no insight into the future about anything not even China or what the road ahead is like for Shin and the HSU.

Thanks for the chapter gentlemen.  8)

I'm excited to see what exactly is going on with Shin's resurrection attempt (aka the Lazarus phenomenon).

Shin’s life force is completely gone and I have no idea what this will do to Kyou Kai's body, mind and soul. But, why did Shin have to die? Seems so premature. Could this chapter be hinting that we should expect a drastic change in both Shin’s and Kyou Kai’s persona? Will he rival his peers after this experience? For example, will he demonstrate a higher degree of intellect? What about his senses? Should we expect a supernatural awakening or will the two be more connected than ever. Because what she is doing has never been done before throughout the manga in fact no one has ever mentioned the subject, her experience is the same as those who died and came back to life and describe what happened on the other side. The bright light, speaking to spirits and so on. She is giving up all her life force to bring Shin back. Will she be a different person after this? Maybe. I just hope it doesn’t reduce her life span.

Seen a lot of discussion form around Kyou Kai’s ability to bring Shin back from the dead and it’s interesting. Besides, it’s the impression we get when she shuffles closer to Shin at the end of the chapter. In fact, chapter 550 plays with an interesting concept I prefer to call channeling for lack of a better word, she calls it sharing one’s life force. We know absolutely nothing about it and the technique could have its origin anywhere but the practice seems to be perfected (probably long ago). Hou Ken’s parents demonstrate this when they heal the sick and wounded. Given the current state Shin is in holding hands seems a little absurd but let’s entertain the notion anyway. One thing troubles me, doesn’t the recipient need a beating heart? How dead is he, technically speaking? This is where things get interesting. Research indicates it’s possible to bring someone back but this depends on the level of permanency, in other words, at what point did he go into cardiac arrest?

Just realized something important, imagine when word of Shin’s death reaches Ei Sei and old man Shi Bun Kun. How will they react to the news even if it’s not completely accurate, especially Ryo Fui and the Queens mom? What’s Ren Pa gonna say? Mou Bu, Tou, Yo Tan Wa and even Kan Ki? Then there’s the other states and their respective generals like Ri Boku, Fu Tei, Ka Rin and her boys, Kou Yoku and Haku Rei, especially Go Hou Mei. Will Go Hou Mei make a move against Ou Sen? Will he assist Ri Boku for personal gain? Will this if it happens eliminate Ou Sens chance to take Gyou? What will Shou Hei Kun think or say? I can’t wait to hear Ou Hon and Mou Ten discuss Shin’s fate. There are so many characters including women and children that he’s crossed paths with throughout his journey where he’s made an impact in their lives. Women who have fallen for Shin and kids who look up to him as a role model. This will be big news for everyone, I guarantee it.

Choked up, that’s how I felt as I read the chapter. I knew what to expect, the previous chapter made it clear but I wasn’t ready for the heartfelt words shared by the HSU. It’s been a long ride and although I may sometimes express dissatisfaction here and there nothing could have prepared me for what just happened. Realization hit me like a ton of bricks and never in a million years would I have imagined Shin’s death (god I hate that word), nonetheless it’s part of the cycle. Anyway, I’d rather not dwell on it so let’s move on. Kyou Kai asked Ten to move aside, why? Is she about to perform CPR? According to Suu Gen, Shin is past the point of no return. Legally that makes Shin a cadaver. Wait a minute, what happened to his regenerative capability? Has his body simply shut down all bodily functions in order to preserve itself? Is he in stasis? I hope so.

There are two deaths attributed to this chapter, Hou Ken who in every practical sense lived by the sword and died by it, and Shin who forced his anatomy way beyond its limit. Some succumb to heart failure while others launch major organs into collapse and complete shutdown, especially when there’s considerable blood loss. This near death experience will definitely change him and I can only imagine how. But before we completely forget Hou Ken I’d like to say that I think I understand him, snatched from his parents and forced into a belief system contrary to his own. His parents used their gifts to bring good into the lives of others. Because of this Hou Ken likely struggled with inner demons his entire life. I believe he sensed he was meant for something better and different yet he never pursued it. His is another tragic story with a bitter end and no hope insight, sad really. We can debate Hou Ken’s past, we can even speculate what if’s but I don’t think he would’ve change his ways, I think he was committed to the cause. We all know that commitments obligate us to do something whether or not we like it. Hou Ken was committed but it was never his true path in life.

A couple of chapters ago we were again reminded that Shin’s unyielding strength stems from all those who have come and gone in his life. We’ve seen this before and I’m not surprised, but I was surprised to see three of the eight characters encourage Shin against someone who like them is fighting for an ideal which to me doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. These are the same people that challenged Shin’s moral point of view and engaged in a fight to the death. I hate to be the bearer of bad news and while some of you like me are happy to see Hou Ken gone for good I’m afraid we might see him again and whole, an apparition, of course. Except, this time he won’t be standing against Shin, he’ll be hovering next to him as all have done before him not necessarily as an ally but as a proponent who’s come to realize after death that he had it all wrong. But, I keep asking myself, are these characters really coming back from the grave to inspire Shin, or is he delirious? Maybe its Shin’s mind coping with the situation unaware of course nevertheless pushing the limits of his current condition in order to gain an advantage against a foe, the same way some cope with traumatic events. For example, people who in life-and-death situations gain superhuman strength and do the impossible. Some have been recorded to lift a car while others defy death itself. My point is, that there’s a common trend of human feats throughout history and Shin is one of many examples.
