What I don't understand is why he only aimed at one when, even with a sword, he has a track record of slay multiple close together enemies with even heavier armour.

You seem to misunderstand the comment Mitsukashira.  What Shin did wasn't an ambush or guerrilla warfare, it was something that's in Kyoukai territory.

 

The UnknownMercanary, it's understandably for Kyoukai to pull off a maneuver like that because she's a trained assassin, Shin is a different story.  

 

I don't know why everyone getting so defensive for the protagonist.  It is a manga, but that doesn't mean I can't say that's BS.

 

 (I thought I had posted this, but somehow I didn't? Very odd. At least the site saved it for me. Oddly enough, it seems to have saved an incomplete version of what I had originally hit submit on; I noticed too late. Now I have to make edits.)

 

 If you want to argue semantics, then we can say that Shin did not utilize a proper "ambush". He merely attacked an enemy that was unaware of the attack until he was upon them. At this moment, I cannot think of the proper term for this action; if you can think of a more fitting term, then please tell me. 

 

 I'm not misunderstanding anything. He saw the enemies location, and took the opportunity to attack them while they were ignorant of his own. This is something he learned how to do, as I explained in my post. Surprise attacks, ambushes, and guerrilla warfare were all things he "had" to learn. No one is stating that Shin is some kind of subterfuge genius, but that this kind of maneuver is well within his ability to do.

 

He knew where the enemy was, the enemy had no idea where he was. In their haste and confusion, he jumped at the opportunity to attack them. Anyone with any kind of actual training and/or experience in guerrilla warfare can pull this off. The Wei commanders are literally running from their HQ, because they've been surprised as it is. It is likely that Gohoumei could not imagine, at that moment, that another enemy troop would discern his location, when the only enemies behind his front line were charging the HQ. 

 

 It isn't a matter of defending some protagonist from a manga: what you said had no real basis for being said, and was a poor attempt at reaching for some kind of criticism.

I was mostly joking about the first two, the third was my explanation and it wasn't trying to state you were wrong gtfo. Was just stating my opinion on the matter.

Remember a few things

 

1) It's manga...

 

2)...manga

 

3) He came from the side where there is mountain terrain everywhere. And he came hard and fast...they also didn't have too many men with them. Therefore you don't get that buffer of people dying while the general goes "Oh they attacked me."

 

True they should have heard them coming but who knows, maybe shin came out from behind a rock coincidentally and slit throats before they could scream?

 

 Except Shin learned very well how to conduct ambushes and guerrilla warfare while subjugating that state-less zone for Ouki. It's part of why he was able to slay Fuuki in the first place.

Bwahahah! that last two pages is EPIC as hell!!!!

 

It was like *Surprise! Trick or Treat

I bet that little bitch Gohoumei fled and Kyoukai won’t find him.

Called it!

Houmei made an exceptional defensive formation, [...]

He had the advantage in numbers, nothing exceptional about holding off his opponent like that. Heck, even incompetent strategist Shin might have actually pulled that off.

I still find it hard to believe Shin made it to their commander unnoticed. Shin being stealthy is like fire being water.

Even Gohoumei is tired of these filler characters, god bless.

I also must point out how Shin doesn't give two shits about just charging and killing everybody without his usual honorable speeches and 1v1s.
Wei Fire Dragons are the Foxy Pirates of Kingdom.

lol wow what a bastard

I'm not sure what's worse...that Houmei did that to his teacher...or that the teacher didn't actually EXPECT that to happen...In fact i'm surprised the teacher didn't pull that first...

 

Can you imagine what it'd be like if they both pulled the same stunt?

 

GHM: Save yourself, Houmei-sama!

Reiou: Save yourself, Houmei-sama!

<Shin gets annoyed and kills them both>

I'm also imagining the dialogue, when their groups rejoined

Spoiler

What the...

 

THAT WAS ONE HELL OF A CLIFFHANGER!

 

(Thanks for all the hardwork Turnip Scans!)

Man, I feel bad for Reiou considering he got labeled a fire dragon. Even Geki Shin who got built up only to be squashed by Houken had a better showing. At least Geki Shin got a flashback of his rise to fame. Reiou just acted as a storyteller, launched a failed attack on Tou at the start, failed to predict the 3 pronged assault despite his intelligence, betrayed by his student and got killed before even trying out his new plan. I thought he'd at least do something of note before croaking. That's just sad.

I guess now we know who is the best strategist of the Wei side :D

Spoiler

Teacher...

if-you-would-turn-your-attention-to-the-

And I like that guy because he's one! xD

Man screw you guys and and your Houmei hate!

 

Not everyone gets to have plot armor protected commanders.

 

Houmei made an exceptional defensive formation, yet he saw his supposedly Six generals of Qin-level commanders defeated/outwitted, and made a smart decision to live to fight another day.

 

Sacrificing the androgynous sadist teacher, just proves he's got a smart snap-decision intelligence.

 

Also, don't be kidding. Ya'll are just jealous of his fabulous hair.

This is probably the worst fucking cliff hanger i've had in a long while...

 

wtf will happen,

1) Shin lets Houmei go because he doesn't know

2) Shin says "Fuck it" and just cuts into them both because they are close together

3) Someone else shows up for the steal kill on Houmei (maybe tou?)

 

mainly just wtf happens to Houmei...that slimeball can't live :1

hahahahahha xD 

Houmei:

Spoiler

Houmei's teacher:

that chap 400 18 page was like :orgasm:

LOOOOOOOOOOOL Gohomei is dirty, what a scumbag move. Loving the high quality scans btw.

Welp, this is best chapter because of the last page xd.

lol that face and comment
