I'd smash that.

she's became pretty isn't she??

 

She really did. I await the moment she lets her hair loose and she's forced to arrange it for a celebration/party in the capital while wearing a fancy dress.

z9ikIUd.png

What about Ten?? She grow too!! In a certain area...

actually, that only applies to the six great generals of qin from the last generation (ouki, kyou, etc.). just cuz ur a great general it doesn't mean u can wager war at ur own will. mougou and chouso were also great generals but didn't have the right to do so

 

All Great Generals have the authority to wage war on their own initiative, just like the SIx. The difference is that they can't START war on their own initiative, which was something the Six could do. Please don't confuse the two. 

 

The difference is basically this: If Ouki, for instance, was sitting on the border and found out through his spies that the next-door garrison was being rotated out, or the King just got assassinated and a civil war was brewing, he could simply issue a muster of his own army and all nearby troops under his overall command and literally just invade after sending Kanyou a note. This is probably what beard guy was doing in Chu when he got himself chopped up.

 

The current Great Generals can't do that. Even if they saw a similar opportunity, they'd still have to report it, wait for the Chief Strategist to send them orders, THEN deploy their troops. However, once they got deployed, how they want to actually wage war is left entirely to their own initiative. Basically, once loosed on the prowl, a Great General could choose what his objectives are based on the opportunities presented to him and decide on the fly how to achieve those objectives. This is different from, say, the Chouyou campaign where the objectives were set from Kanyou, or Shin's very first campaign when Duke Hyou was ordered to take a single city, or the battle against the Coalition when Shouheikun literally told Moubu what formation he should use to get himself into position to cut off which specific general's head. In Tou's current case, he got himself one order: Sit on the Wei border and do whatever you need to keep it secure. As we can see he's exercising his authority by building walls and preparing to attack INTO Wei-held territory. That's initiative. That's what a current Great General is allowed to do. More than a regular general but less than the Six. Hakuki would probably have said, "F*** this, all my magic fortresses are set up, so I'm gonna invade. Tell Ouki and Kyou to get their asses down here!" And he would. Just like that.

 

EDIT: Or at least that how it seems now. We won't know whether the authority to start their own wars is still invested in the current Great Generals or not until one of them actually uses it. So far it's safe to say that they get a generalized order and they carry it out without consulting Kanyou. 

i smirk when is see dat rou ai 

he didnt notice those people push him to cliff

Hahahahaha woke up to see Sei's coming of age chapter happen on my 21st birthday. Thanks for the release Turnip Farmers!

By independence, we're not just talking about being a separate unit, we're talking about fulfilling her dream of becoming a Great General (hence walking the same path as Shin). What distinguishes Great Generals is that they have the authority to wage war by their own volition. It's saying goodbye to the title of Shin's lieutenant and making a name for herself so they can stand as equals. You don't achieve that by continuously wanting to be under someone's shadow the whole time.

 

Kyou 2.0 and Ouki 2.0 basically. People don't refer to Kyou as Ouki's underling, they're treated as equals - both are Great Generals.

Why is Chou Kou sweating like that?

He wants her but doesn't have the balls... literally.

Why is Chou Kou sweating like that?

actually, there is no longer any point for her to go independence, since shin next rank will be general.

 

...actually, he will need more people like her to served under him

 I know Kyoukai said that she won't go independent and she'll remain in the HSU until the end but it really feels like this is the start of her independence. Even the higher-ups are noticing she's getting too big to remain as Shin's lieutenant. Holding herself back because she continuously wants to be under Shin's command contradicts her declaration of doing her best and I bet Shin realizes this too. He might eventually encourage her to go solo while doing that fist bump gesture they always do saying she'll always be part of the family (HSU) and that they'll inevitably meet if they're on the same path.

actually, there is no longer any point for her to go independence, since shin next rank will be general.

 

...actually, he will need more people like her to served under him 

Feels like it's really been a long journey. I can still remember when Shin and Kyoukai were only infantry, getting rejected from 5 men groups so they became the leftovers squad. Now Shin's a 5k commander (Kyoukai's not far behind as a 3k commander), talking about managing a defensive fort which will be used as the starting point for conquering Wei while overlooking the land from high atop a tower.

 

Spoiler

 

On a lighter note, it's cute that both of them are comfortable spending new years together in the front lines in contrast to the others who want to take a break or go home. Shin doesn't really have a family to go home to since Ten's already with him in the HSU while Kyoukai considers the HSU her family. "Home is where the heart is" at its finest.

 

 

Pretty sure he was, i don't know wtf that poster was thinking. He clearly means that they have both suffered a great deal together and it is his responsibility as the cause of it to put her to rest. I actually do feel this is, in his own way, his love for his mother.

If he kill his mother or ordered her execution then it will be a creative license on mangaka part.

lol what? Nah, I think when he says "end her suffering" he is indeed referring to killing her.

The moment when Shin touch her even a single hair, Sei's wrath likely will fall on him. Don't you just read the last page? No matter what, Sei still care of his mother. Killing her is out of option.

Could that old adviser be an agent of Ryofui's? Seems awfully well-placed to probe the state's weak points, like the slow-witted stallion. Would be just like the scheming guy he is.

 

I literally thought the same thing "Well isn't this a perfect little minion trying to throw shit at the fan."

I thought that was only the Six Generals? Since it's generally to dangerous to give a general their own army but king Sho has the utmost trust in the six

I think it differs in the number of troops. At the battle of Sanyou Mogou had around 100k men under his command if i remember correctly, with Ousen and Kanki as his subordinates. So my guess is that he is considered higher rank than generals in a decision, and he can lead armies in bigger quantities.

The Great Generals of Qin have authority to wage war on their own initiative. Tou didn't have this until now.
