The death flags were raised high for the old man in Mouten's crew, I'm glad to see he is okay, as I was scared for him for the last couple of chapters.

Putting Mouten's army in peril actually allows them to shine greater.

I have a hard time believing that things really will go that smoothly for Mouten ...

Ha! Get Parthian'd.

"General, wait! That's not all! This isn't even their final form(ation)!"

I used to win battles with almost this exact method in Total War: Shogun 2 multiplayer battles all the time, highly fun and effective!

Hopefully there will be some more of the explanation on Ousen's relationship with Ouki fleshed out, since somehow he show a glimpse of interest to Shin holding out Ouki's glaive. Also to an extend he now keeps Shin's unit close to him probably for some further observation and test for Shin's worthiness as Ouki's (or even probably as Ou's family) glaive holder.

 

The time that really stood out for me was when Shin was complaining about something and then Ousen started to move towards Shin to which everyone thought Shin was in deep shit.  That was when he looked at the Glaive and decided to be calm, and explain to Shin the situation on the battlefield.

 

As you mentioned he wants to test Shin.  He probably has seen both Mouten and his son Ouhon in battle, but there has never been a time he has watched the Hi Shin Unit in battle.

 

Ousen, to us, seems like a very cold character, but I have a feeling he truly respected Ouki, either that or despised him as not a "member of the head house."  I think that him not being "a member of the head house" made him even greater though.

 

I have a hard time deciding if that glaive belongs to the Ou family, or if it was his personal glaive.  I wouldn't think that the family's prized weapon would go to anyone but those in the head house, but it's possible that wasn't the case.  Since Ouki was such a great general, he could get any weapon he wanted made, so it's possible it was just a weapon made for him.

 

 

I personally would love to see the Ou-Grandfather.  We have seen Mougu, but we have never heard about Ouhon's grandfather/Ousen's father.

That smirk in chapter 521, hehehe ...

I think this speaks more to his trust in his son's abilities, I mean he is a genius tactician too.

These battles are going to be so awesome, can't wait! 

 

EDIT:  damn this battle is nuts from the start.

Great rebuttal, dipshit. That sure addressed and completely negated all the arguments I put forth. Sheesh, your name really suits you.

Fair enough. I estimated they had more time.

Well, let's see what happens.

Starving the defender is the easiest and the most used siege strategy during the middle ages (900 - 1400s)

 

Hannibal did it during the 2nd Punic War, almost broke the Romans if Scipio didnt counter his stratagem

 

Its costly though

While starving is indeed the easiest and most used siege strategy it does not apply to said battle. Qin dosent have the time or the supplyes to leisurelly wait for the town to run out resources, they are running on limited supplys as well not to mention surronded by a larger enemie force with no reinforcerments coming to help them. There is also the fact that even if people run out of food they can still last quite a while on defense.

 

Ousen plan in real life would be suicidal and would never work given the scenario. The part i dont get is that even if by some miracle the city ran out of food before the Qin army and opened the gates Ousen armys would still be running on the limited food supplys they brought (since the city would have depleted their on supplys) and would be surrounded by enemies in all directions. Truth be told all Zhao would have to do is siege the town for a little while till Qin army starved, they had no reinforcements coming to release them (this is a how a proper siege would go).

So ... simply hit-and-run tactics on the left flank?

Agree on the refugee's part, if Germany accept more than 60 million refugee, now that is comparable to Gyou, otherwise apple to orange

 

Spoiler
To me it looks like Ousen is scared and so keeped the Hi Shin Unit with him :P

No, its Mouten the one who draw the shortest straw.

As usual, Hi Shin will be the wildcard. 

Alright, times up, let's do this! LEEEEROOOY JEENNKINS!!!!

There was a new chapter this morning

 

Aaaaaand it's gone !

Mouten taking on an entire flank.

 

The ultimate madman.

Battle of keikakus!

Yotanwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
