New cover is shiny...  Nice one.

 

Few chapters back when Shin, Mouten and Ouhon were called back I thought they're going to attack Zhao's capital with just the three of them, while the main army batters down Zhao's western side as diversion. So it was not the case? With that town hiding enough food for the whole army and all?

 

On a different note, I hope that Zhao girl don't get killed.

 

That's what was implied, and I feel a lot of us felt that way, but there might be too many Zhao for it to happen the way we thought.  It just seems a bit crazy that they are going to just change direction and that is supposed to be enough to confuse the Zhao.  Also using Kinan as a turning point is something that is going to cause issues since there are spies there.

 

I would think that the Qin would have at least set up another Army for the western side, so even IF Zhao found out there was an attack on their center, Qin could at least conquer the western part of Zhao, which was their big problem to begin with, causing the "Impossible defeat of Zhao."  The issue is that if Center Zhao is protected, then major damage would befall the Qin Soldiers and they will have a lot more problems that trying to take out Zhao.  It is still possible that Western Zhao will be attacked though.

Riboku is not undefeated for nothing

Ordo's invasion is not helping Qin, btw, because what it's actually doing is force Zhao to withdraw troops east, which in turn means the largest concentration of troops will be right where Qin is planning to attack instead of where Qin needs those troops to be. This is why Ousen is increasing his pace.

It's a good thing that Turnip Farmers adds a chap on Batoto after the next one is up on Sense-Scan.

Go ahead and add a Smut/Ecchi tag. Zhao is getting spit-roasted.

If they do, it'd be to attack Qin. The Chu does not share any frontier with Zhao.

 

Yeah, but Moubu didn't leave the southern border. So it would be business as usual then. Plus, I believe Chu would love to see Riboku leave the playing as much as Qin does.

That chapter title gives all the wrong ideas. "Mutual probing", heh.

Only fair Riboku also get a taste of what he subjected Qin into previously. 

 

This is getting hot~ Will Chu join in too?

Those are some funny omake :3

 

I like my Omake sunny side up.

Those are some funny omake :3

I am waiting for when Houken makes his appearance.  It would be interesting to see Ousen get pissed off for what Houken did to Ouki, and start going all out on Houken.  Even though Shin should be the one to kill Houken, I really want to see Ousen get swayed by his emotions for Ouki.

 

From the story it seems that Ousen doesn't care about Ouki, seeing him as "not from the main family" as Ouhon says, but I have a feeling that Ousen truly loved/cared for his cousin/uncle Ouki.

 

I also have a theory that this is the reason why Ousen isn't close to Ouhon.  I have a feeling that Ousen doesn't want Ouhon to ever be emotion on the battlefield, no matter what.  He wanted Ouhon to not be attached to anyone, so that he could fight his best, even if Ousen died in front of Ouhon, Ouhon should still continue to fight.

 

This was foreshadowed a bit by when Mouten was attacked by the Kanmei of Chu, and then Moubu raged and smashed Kanmei like a pancake.

 

The thing is, the Mou family is basically the complete opposite of the Ou family.  The Mou family fights for love, and that gives them strength, while the Ou family is about honing their own individual strengths, and not being emotional.  We also see that Moubu became who he is, because of his father Mogou's sacrifices of travelling all across China in order to provide and protect his son.  The Ou family seems to have been from Qin the entire time, and they have a different Luxury than the Mou family.

 

You have some wild imagination there but it is just that, imagination. 

It's Shin's hidden desire I assume

Wonder what that "and more" would entail.

Agree with the guy below me. Ousen will do things as long as he benefits from them. Machiavellian characters like that are pretty good in a story.

 

This omake was good though...... Lol Riboku...... And Shin's suppressed desire of what he really wants Kai's dance to be like...

 

the Ouki part was good to and Rokuomi as always gets the short stick

 

and Shin with Kyoukai would be great if they end together.

The heck are you talking about? The only person Ousen gives a fudge about is Ousen. If General Poketrainer ever met Housen in battle, the first thing he'd do is try to recruit the dude exactly the way he's tried to get about every single potentially useful enemy general to join him so far. Not that he's had any success either. Just about every other general is wise enough to realize that he's a dangerous self-serving sunuvabitch. In the original history, Wang Jian pretended to be greedy to allay the suspicions of the Qin court. Ousen this manga actually IS greedy, not to mention potentially treacherous. 

 

Historically, the Wang (Ou) families of the Zhou dynasty were similar to the Minamoto and Taira of Japan. The Wang character means King, and those bearing the surname were originally descended from delegitimized sons of ruling kings (in the same way the Gong were delegitimized sons of Dukes), sent into military service to unburden the royal court and remove potential challengers to the legitimate line of succession. By the Warring States era, these Wang families had taken roots as warrior clans in the various kingdoms. While descended from the lineage of Zhou kings, the fact that their ancestors had been delegitimized made the surname a bit of a joke, really. 

 

The Meng (Mou) clan is one of the most prestigious clans in the Qi-Lu (now Shandong) area and one of the preeminent houses of the original Confucianist school. They boast an ancestor in the sage Mencius (Meng fu zi). Some of them served as military officers, but from the time of Mencius himself they were primarily sought after for their advice on matters political and philosophical. Mougou, Moubu, and Mouten are actually anomalies in the history of their clan.

Dem twerk tho

Some real Art of War shiet going on

When is the new chapter getting updated??? It seems to be up on other sites.
