Aaah, so much realism in Kingdom... As if one could hear a man doing a speech, even by screaming, in the middle of a battlefield with loud noises of metal hitting metal. Well, anyway you don't really read Kingdom for his realism I guess.

 

Remember those two Chu generals broadcasting to the whole battlefield? Realism vs manliness. Shin is following the same path. Of course, once he reaches Ouki level, all he would need to do is ride his horse back and forth with his weapon held up, and that will be better than a hundred speeches.

Goes for every Pre-Battle-Speech ever only the hundred or so soldiers next to the speaker would hear something, the rest would just clap along or look amazed.

dat general battlecry
everybody getting a power boost now

Possible that he indeed has more weapons behind his back though the speech itself does indicate some wavering on his part

 

I wouldn't call the series over even if ryofui falls though, let's also not forget about  that other "super-genius-strategist" outside of Qin... the series never seems to run out of these types

I wonder how will the author expand on those, since based on history, Sei will pretty much steamroll after this event. :P

Fucking shivers while reading this chapter.

That dude on page 8, I feel sorry for him. Poor nameless soldier. Also, is it just me or has it been a while since Shin had a nice manly duel?

You know this is truly EPIC  this author is a genias and the traslation ais also EPIC, a  exelente story of frindship, fight, and adventure, that u feel with every piece of your hart =)

I don't know why but this brought a tear of happiness to my eyes...

So moving.. Ahh, the power of friendship.

Joking aside, this really did bring a tear of happiness to my eyes.

 

Now the question remains: How will the author deal with Ryofui and the royal mother after this battle is over?

Fucking HYPE!

Uncle Shin about to wreck some shit. If they want to get to Sei's kids, they'll have to go through Shin.

 

Or, more accurately, Shin goes through them.

- Befriend a distant state while attacking a neighbor
(遠交近攻/远交近攻, Yuǎn jiāo jìn gōng)
It is known that nations that border each other become enemies while nations separated by distance and obstacles make better allies. When you are the strongest in one field, your greatest threat is from the second strongest in your field, not the strongest from another field.
 
Just a bit trivia.

Damn, even I got pumped up when Shin talked! GOOOO!!!

i would like to have moubu appear and defending kanyou :D

And even as he know he just lost, he is still boasting about his self importance and none seems to be able to stand up to him on that vocal joust.

Ryofui said he doesn't need the 4 pillars? Well I dare him to say that in front of Moubu.


Ryo Fui basically raised his own death flag.

Ryofui said he doesn't need the 4 pillars? Well I dare him to say that in front of Moubu.

favorite chapter #

Ryō Fū I is going to lose it when he learns the Hi Shin Unit put a stop to the siege.

I'll really miss Ryofui in that story once the author get rid of him, the character was a great antagonist to the heroes at those political games.

 

And even as he know he just lost, he is still boasting about his self importance and none seems to be able to stand up to him on that vocal joust.

Why are people getting so peeved at one-side? The story has been dramatized to make one-side look bad. In reality both sides aren't good.

His loyalists control half the kingdom, killing him that obviously without grinding down his faction would spark civil war which would play into the hands of the other kingdoms.
Or you know... read the manga?


Yea but at this point he has pretty much started his rebellion and everyone knows it. Just cut of the head of the snake and the body will follow (or at least be easier to deal with) I gather a lot of his power rest in the promise he gave to those not absolutely loyal to him and his money , if he's dead what does it matter. Also they could just stab him in a hallway and blame the mother after all she's in also in a provable rebellion. Shiiiiiiit

Why dont they just stab Ryofui in the face?

Damnit Hara... why you always made badass villain here? Even Ryofui here is way better than any version of him I ever watch or read.

 

Still full of confidence and majestic to bitter end

Seriously, he just admitted in front of everyone that he is an enemy of Qin...

Certain politics I will never understand.

...He already said he was the one who sent the assassins to kill Sei long ago
