    But...wasn't he? I seriously forgot who the Great Generals now are. That one chapter they were discussing who got promoted and who has the biggest chances for a promotion...

    im pretty sure so far thats still only Tou and Mouten's old man. for GG there'd be a special ceremony. If Ousen pulls off this campaign he should get it though? methinks ...

    It was nice to know about another Qin's Six & that Shohuken was his student.

    MouBu & Tou. Though I can't find the chapter in which MouBu was promoted.

    He should have been promoted before he was assigned as Supreme Commander tbh.

    I waited years for this moment and it didn't disappoint one bit. The feels... :obd

    This a big one. Feels very close to how we felt years ago when the coalition army descended on Qin. I think we're in for a lot of epic moments as well as deaths of main characters on both sides.

    "This glaive and I are going to take Riboku's head" ... but to do that you must go through Houken first. Good luck, Shin.

    I was kinda surprised Shin still found the glaive heavy but then I suppose he's not even a General yet, let alone on Ouki's level. Rematch with Houken gonna be gud. :bury

    hmm.. lets try again.

    1)How much Weight & Height do you guys estimate Xin has gained between now and when Ouki passed his glaive to him?
    2) How tall and how much weight do you guys think Xin will have in his prime?

    1) no clue

    2) given he is the MC, and supposed to become the uber GG if it goes well, realistically speaking he should achieve rankai levels. not gonna happen though. now, his percieved pseudo mystical *weight* though ....

    Does anyone think we will see Zhao Great General & Renpa's previous subordinate Gaku Jou (http://kingdom.wikia.com/wiki/Gaku_Jou) in action this war? I personally hope so.

    I know. Nonetheless him commanding this big army as a general doesn't sit well with me. But that's just me I guess.

    I know when he was promoted. I just can't find the exact chapter.

    I totally agree. Houken shouldn't be defeated before Gai Mou. (http://kingdom.wikia.com/wiki/Gai_Mou)

    Awesome chapter !
    I imagine this fake food plan is off SHK and not of Ousen. It must have taken extensive vetting process to determine who will work for fake food plan. There must be like hundreds of workers in there.
    I am glad that HSU is under Yontanwa. Shin doesn't get along with Kanki(as High Command knows) and Ousen is too defense oriented for likes of HSU. Yontanwa makes most sense as far as synergy goes.
    Though I wonder how long HSU and other IUs will stay with main campaign. They will have to separate from them at.some point without triggering Zhao .
    I knew it Riboku won't immediately get Qin's real plan. That is impossible for him to know unless he is omniscient which he thankfully is not.
    I am hyped for next chapter.
    Are we gonna get next chapter or is there an another break?

    There is high chance of this battle turning into an "I know you know I know". A good question is why isn't Zhao asking for help from other countries, and why are the other ones not taking advantage of Qin throwing a huge portion of their manpower and resources at a single point.

    Could go either way, depending on the author... if he wants to follow the real history.

    The fact that Ousen is leading and Kanki is there looks like for now he follows the history.

    The first city/land they conquered before the invasion of zhao ( forgot the name ) was crucial because it was a point where they could strike in zhao,han,wei but also defend themselves against wei.

    The chu borders are protected by moubu and tou.

    So basically they are protected.

    There is no coalition mostly because the prime minister of chu died and Karin is in charge now... so Riboku influence on chu is lower.... Ei sei also spoke to Qi king....

    And it's pretty hard to unite the coalition into a single army... unless by miracle both wei and han allow safe passage to chu... but that would leave moubu and tou free reign to attack chu.

    It's basically chess... and the first guy who does a bold move gets fucked.

    You misunderstood. I didn't confirm anything. I said anything is possible.

    Depends on what the author does.

    And my response to Akabara was based on the Manga.

    Both tou and moubu is at the chu borders, the priminister of chu really died when Karin was promoted... and the city that was first conquered was explained why it was that important for Qin by Riboku.

    Internal struggle is part of the explanation.
    Not wanting to open up to other countries is another(Say one country send off 100k soldiers to quin, that would open their defense up even more than qin's)
    Defenses put in place already by Qin a third
    possible fake rumors being spread


    plenty of possibilities

    Dirt instead of food, brilliant!
    A bit off-topic here, but to be honest, making mangaka do something "awesome/great/epic" for "...00" chapters sometimes disturbs the flow (remember Oda cutting out a character/scene in order to get to the Grand Line at chapter 100). It might be cool for the readers to know what to expect, but I really think the story should take precedence.
