Ayy damn.

Ayy lmao

Nothing like an ex-lover to deliver a figurative punch to the guts.

Tou wasn't already a great general? I mean all this time since the time skip he's been put in charge of entire campaigns and has led other, lesser generals many times right? Wouldn't that make him a great general?


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

Then he coolly leaves, leaving the bitch forever in regret

Ayy damn. Just look at this cassanova.

I never would have thought that I could feel bad for the queen mother and Ryofui for their failed romance, the author really made me feel like they actually loved eachother

Re-reading previous chapter, i didn't noticed, so that Chou Kou guy is Zhao Gao ?

 

That "shy" appearance for that guy is very likely him decieving people and the queen mother, because Zhao Gao is supposed to be some kind of "master manipulator" , from records he even managed to force the choice of the 2nd emperor to be his  own puppet in order to basically rule Qin himself through the puppet.

 

Though i wonder if the Kingdom story will go beyond Sei rule as the 1st emperor.

Hopefully the author is going to take a few artistic liberties with the the storyline and possibly some characters, I mean you wouldn't want it to be too predictable.

Second great general? Is the bandit guy the first?

According to the last page, Moubu (big stronk guy that killed the Chu commander in the coalition wars) is.

Second great general? Is the bandit guy the first?

Another chapter so fast

is always welcome :D

Well i think after so far into the story its safe to assume that historic facts might not overlap as much as possible with the plot of Kingdom.

recorded historical facts do overlap with the story. however the author is free to give the unrecorded details that leads up to those recorded historical facts different twists as long as the final result is the same

Well i think after so far into the story its safe to assume that historic facts might not overlap as much as possible with the plot of Kingdom.

Haha out of no where this happens

Spoiler

Fuck, I hate the Chu equivalent of Shin so much. I was hoping it was a while before we saw him again.

Zhao Gao will be the one to ruin the reunified Qin China. Historical Spoiler here although they would not go that far since it would spill into the creation of the Han Dynasty.

See......

as i thought its not the queeen who think that far

its her subordinate

now to next question how long this state ai gonna last?

1 month? 2 month? 1 year?

i wonder how exactly the queen mother state can withstand against Qin military

its jam packed with crazy ass generals

or perhaps that bitch not think that far  

like the state of Qi with Hankuki, using money to buy a decent general is not that hard, now the state of Ai has a good fortress in a great position, an appropiate number of troops with high moral led by a decent general is a tough nut to crack. Qin is a mighty state but they cant rally a big army against Ai, the defensive line against Chu, Wei and Zhao would be weaken and without a big army they cant finish Ai fast, a long battle would be a perfect opportunity for Wei and Zhao to flank them and took Qin's land along with Qin's human resource. The only thing i can think of so that Qin can destroy Ai that either using politic actions or "rise in the east hit in the west", a small army siege the city, draw back to bait the Ai's army to go through 1 gate then send in specialize force, Shin, Ouhon and Mouten hit the three other gates then "Bam" 15.000 elite troops against a city with 20.000 or 30.000 troops without a general, may god save their souls....

i wonder how exactly the queen mother state can withstand against Qin military

its jam packed with crazy ass generals

or perhaps that bitch not think that far  

She think that far thats why she make a deal with Chu.She knows that Qin military is weaked now due to recent events.If Qin spare a general to this matter the enemy state would immediately seize this opportunity.

It seems he has one, yes. But it's downplayed alot. I wonder why, after all, he is the heir to the Qin throne.

Probably to keep its existence hidden from possible enemies that may want to kill him, since he is the heir and all that.

But this is making Sei look like real dick, the author must properly introduce the kid at some point, otherwise i bet the kid dies and we don't even get to know how it looked.

 

Shin: "Sup! Sei how are the children."

Sei: "Good, good."

Shin: "To be a father of 2 already."

Sei: "2?"

Shin: "Yeah you have that unnamed heir to the throne, that's being keep a secret to everyone."

Sei: "Nope what his name died last year, can't even remember what happened to him."

Shin: "i see..."

I got teary everytim i re read this chapter

 

http://bato.to/read/_/224816/kingdom_v31_ch330_by_turnip-farmers/18

I hope the author has good explaination of this event as this action of the Queen is considered treason already. Anyway, she digs her own grave now. Only one more to remove before start of china unification.

 

The author has history has an explanation.

Eh, I don't remember him having a son ever. Perhaps it's referring to the son of another one of the Queen's children?

Story made a pretty vague comment about it but he does have a child with another palace girl. Due to it happening "even earlier" than Rei rather than something more specific I'm not too sure on the age but Rei turned 1 year old a few months before the scene in ch403 which means the first child is most likely (if not more than) 2 years old. I don't know why it isn't talked about much, probably because the author just doesn't want to focus on that aspect yet.
 
Another possibility is that the palace is doing its best to keep it secret and the author's vagueness is attempting to demonstrate that. If it is a son then that makes him next in line for the throne which puts a pretty major kink in Ryofui's plan. He can't become king if a legitimate successor exists and Sei having a son just adds yet another person in his way. This may just be putting too much thought into it though.
