ch 525: Bananji's Bonanza

Names of ch. 522 and 523 accurately represent today's political situation in the USA.

Let the shitstorm commence.

>USA

>Left wing

Nah, the US has two right ones. One's more about robbing the own country blind, the other is about robbing everyone else blind.

Ouhon being Ouhon. Let’s see if that screws everything up this time.

MouTen is something else

Why would you think that he’s Chinese? He was born in Japan and has a Japanese name.

 

Because I had heard this was a Chinese work, and it's based on Chinese history....

 

That's why when I saw the Mangaka I was confused.

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).

Unless the real plan is to force the Zhao to relieve the city, drawing their armies into open battle. It's a bait strategy, not a contest of provisions.

 

If the Zhao think they'll lift the siege, they'll put supply lines in place so the population don't starve to death after being rescued and you seize their supplies.

 

And destroying the Western armies means Qin forces along the borders can take all the mountain passes with relative ease and bring the supply line that direction. Or you could route them through the town which everybody abandoned because it was indefensible. If there's no enemy armies in the field the defences don't matter.

Why would you think that he’s Chinese? He was born in Japan and has a Japanese name.

Idk gents, this battle is making me crazy and going so damn slow that I think I'm going to wait for 20 chapters to see what's going to happen...  

 

 

BTW is this a Japanese written Manga, or is this a Chinese written Manga?  I thought this was written by a Chinese author from what has been discussed in the past, but I could be wrong.

Waiting for Riboku to make my pulse rise by making some nasty comeback

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.

Get butthurt some more about bad writing being pointed out. Y’all’s fanboyism is showing.

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

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