Thread: Kingdom

    actually would be nice if ouhon would get command of the wing, and shin has learn to swallow his pride and follow orders (and even doing better then those orders)

    To everyone's surprise, the author will pull a Ippo. Next chapter Shin, Ouhon and Kyokai are permanently crippled in battle and go on to live their lives as peasants. The manga becomes the story of how Riboku proceeded to conquer Quin and unify all 7 kingdoms.

    (Come on! Ever since this Zhao conquest started it seems every other chapter something horribly backfires on the Quin armies. Are they ever going to achieve anything at all at this rate ?)

    Guessing Hara felt that with Mouten turning the tables on Riboku on qin's left wing and Ouhon and Shin proving themselves capable on the right that things were going too swimmingly for Qin, so felt like he really needed to artificially raise the stakes by

    - having all of Heki's food burn
    - having Zhou food supplies outlast Qin food supplies
    - fucking over the Akou army

    Overall the pace of this battle just feels very uneven when you get some interesting shit happen and then whatever momentum gets built up gets smothered a few chapters later.

    I think Riboku's talk with whatshisface alone would have been enough to bring some suspension.

    This way, might as well say "things will backfire for Qin for a while, but then they'll recover somehow".

    Same here, it will take away heavily from the impact whenever things start to go south...

    It is for only creating some 'tension'.Eventually Qin will turn the tides, that's the fate.
    I don't dislike it, but i feel it unnecessary.

    Liked this chapter. Shin was less dumbfounded by everyone and more focused and composed.

    I liked the chapter and the banter between the two units. Somehow for quite a while these interactions felt more funny or meaningful then the One Piece ones.

    With the proper fighting starting, next chapter will probably be boring/uneventful and I expect only the week afterwards to have some new development. Obviously, the huge downside of the Qin plan is that Akou has to hold back three divisions on his own. Sure, he may have been in a strong defensive position, but somehow the Qin side seems to have forgotten that he not only has to repulse them but also keep them busy.
    It would be pretty fatal if two Zhao divisions pin him down and someone like Bananji goes around and falls into the back of Ouhon and Shin just as they are going for Gaku_eis head.

    I wonder if that is roughly what Riboku is planning, or if he does somehting will all his surplus numbers being lazy in the center.

    Ok, then I predict it's going to be reverse. And Shin will get Bananji.

    Not sure whether Akou lives or dies in the process. Maybe gets wounded? Just to make things a little different from the left wing.

    Was hoping it was something more elaborate. And realistic.

    And that it won't become completely useless once Bananji figures it out. Well, confirms what Riboku told him, anyway.

    Where are the archers? What's the point of such an awesome defensive formation if you don't have archers picking off the chargers who are stopped in place?

    Archers should be difficult to put in such formation.They can't be positioned in joint sections, as only strong infantry can cope with the pressure.Putting them at front will make them pretty useless.And finally if they were put at back, then there is good chance of their own men getting hit in the mille. Only from a high position like siege tower or mountain peak can they pin point the targets in this situation.

    All they need is to shoot over their own ranks to hit the enemy that is in the middle or back of the formation. So the first line of the attack can't be reinforced properly. That's certainly nothing unmanageable. You could almost say it is as simple as protecting the HQ from sudden ambushes.

    It's not like the archers have to be planted into ground. They can move a lot easier than soldiers in full armor and tower shields.

    This way, Akou is starting to seem less of an intelligent strategist and more of a one trick pony copycat.

    He doesn't ? I've read the chapter but can't figure what exactly it is that we're seeing.
    Spoiler:
    Is this Akou pincered by both Bananji and Gyou'un on the last page ? And old man Gunei getting cleaved in 2 right before that ?
