Damn, my Kyou Kai ship is under attack.

I'm still believing in the harem route. I mean, it would be appropriate given the setting.

Yep by the end of this we will need a harem tag all over this b.

I like your statement haahah all haill harem

Awesome.
 
Shin is about to wreck some serious shit.
 
As for potential romance between Shin and Yō, I'm not going to outright disregard it, but I still much prefer Shin with Kyō Kai. Ten is definitely in the imōto zone now though.

money move the world is not a mistake. Ryo fui ways will definitely work only if he got the military forces to keep it work. If you in that era and see other country is enjoying their life and prosper where you country is suffering but have the power to take it by force. What will you do? I will take it by force, get it through negotiation will take years maybe a lifetime. So he need to conquer china first and implement his way of govern

What happens when someone outside of china sees that it is doing well economically but has no military with which to defend itself? That's right, it gets conquered by a military force.

Awesome.

Holy crap...I don't get worried easily when reading manga but for this, where deaths are common, I was hoping You wouldn't get killed. Author completely delivered. Thank you very much!!!

 

Now, on to the main point... Third woman for Shin's own mini harem?

I hope people remember this from back then. So there's an actual chance for some kind of shipping.

I think they talked about shin again one other time. She should definitely join up now that Ten's been pushed into the imouto-zone.

 

Kyoukai's power level is way too high though.

...image fail

AW YEAH. Shin to the rescue!

Now imagine having to explain how you met your spouse to the kids: "Your mommy was about to be stabbed with a spear, but then your daddy cleaved the bad man in half."
Well, that's assuming this particular shipping does happen.

i scream HUOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHH!!!!!!! NOW YOU SHALL DIE SANAVABIJ!!!!!

Well that's a well timed entrance if I've ever seen one!

You make an interesting point at the end when you mention Ryo Fu's way working temporarily which is similar to how our world is working right now. The thing is Sei's way also makes sense, but to make it happens it would take uniting the whole world not just "China". But to unite the world would take an incredible amount of effort, not to mention the billions that would die if you use force, which unfortunately seems to be the only way that we have seen work so far. Very interesting stuff, hard to say which is right. Personally I side with Sei. I think being united as one nation/world would help the human race advance to the next level where we stop focusing so much on each other and start looking beyond our planet. Yes the sacrifice would be immense, but if it was within my hands to be able to make it happen, I wouldn't hesitate.

Ok, "romance with a commoner" flag, on. +1 to Shin's harem

 

Spoiler

 

And now I present again my hypothesis:

 

Spoiler

EPIC

Spoiler

 

I wonder how bloody the events will be once Sei will have emerged on top, so many people on his city betrayed him

 

Blood will certainly fly as those dynasties weren't known as being forgiving when it was coming to take the power.

About time something went into favor on Sei's side.

At the time the Chinese people very much considered China the extent of the world. Perhaps not physically but at least as far as the parts of the world that mattered.

 

That mentality only appeared after China was unified, and expanded further out until it hit the natural barriers surrounding the country. Just saying.

Sei lost that exchange so hard, despite how much the author tries to paint it rosy.

 

His vision only kind of... sort of... works (and even then with a terribly great cost) if your perspective is narrow enough to consider China as the whole world. Suppose he is right and everything happens as he says, then you have a unified and peaceful China... surrounded by other countries, which would be exactly the same situation as Quin-vs-rest of china, only in a bigger scale China-vs-rest of the world. What would he do then.. unify the whole world through warfare?

Sure Sei, good idea, no doubt the billions dead and the smoldering ruins of the world will be filled with "light" after that.

Correct me if i'm wrong but this is how I understand their discussion:

 

Spoiler

 

Funny thing, looking at history, Ryo Fu I's method works in the cycles of peace, until it reaches a tipping point then it's war. Then Sei's view works for the people in power. War ends, still Sei's principle. Next generation, it's still peace, but Ryo Fu I's principles take over. Then the cycle goes on. SSDD.

but on the other hand you could always buy power to kill 

you have economic, military and spiritual power 

 

economic power works by taking the means of living from a country or by buying government officials to make rules that are in favor to you instead of there country

 

military power just kills the enemy, destroys there means of living or threatens them in surrendering/obeying to you

 

spiritual power is most of the time in the form of believes people hold or in the fate a person has this can make people from outside the nation make rules who apply in another country or make people start wars in name of a believe (crusades/jihad)

Economic power to bribe officials only works as long as the official feels like it, or is weak enough to just not be able to use military might to take your money away under accusations of corruption.

 

My point is that violence is but one of the forms of power and not its ultimate one (which you seemed to imply).

Violence in the sense i used when i replied to you can present itself not just as physical, but as a force that subdues and obliges other to do your will, it can be economic violence, political, etc, a better word for it would be just power, so i use violence in the sense that you force, impose something on someone else regardless of what their position may be.

The majority of humans are not altruistic. There is no Peace without Force.

Peace Through Power
