But Riboku is only human after all. He has lot other things to worry here than keeping tabs on promising commanders. When he will have 3 huge armies on his ass there is so much he can do.
I don't think Riboku can predict that SHK will give most important job to kids. I mean he doesn't even know that Gyou is the real target. We as readers know that but how exactly Riboku is supposed to know that?
He may have considered it a possibility and might have upgraded security as precaution but that's all.
Riboku can't predict that an army will attack a city that is far away from main battle field when for his knowledge all GGs of Qins are accounted for.
It is unprecedented to send an army in the heart of enemy territory without even a General let alone a GG. He won't find those independent units untill it is too late. Shin and Ouhon has good reputation i agree but not on par of a GG. Even on FD arc they still had a CiC in Tou. An entire battlefield has never been left to them until now.
What other option does Hara/Qin even has here other than this anyway?
I didn't really have any high expectations when it came to last few arcs (apart from State of Aai which was a bit underwhelming ) but now we are finally starting the unification arcs, now I do.
There is no reason why this Gyou cannot be one of the top arcs, if not top of the series so far. So much amazing things in this war.
Since this will be the arc that would make Shin, Ouhon and Mouten generals, added with three generals who are also going to shine in their respective ways, this most likely will be the longest arc so far. On top of that the newest HSU recruits would have their time to shine, seeing the likes of Mouten who hasn't been seen in combat for a while, Ousen's and Yotanwa army in detail etc
I guess this is the arc that Ouhon and Ouson will finally meet either before, during or after. I predict he will probably be unmasked at the end. Also Ouhon will even further try to prove himself, now his father is supreme commander.
If those three are supposed to be the south force, why have them appear here? SHK could have told them of the plan in secrecy and then act like he stations them on the Chu/Wei border. Not perfect, but as you say, once the western attack takes place, Riboku will have his hands full. Them traveling through all of Wei would still be unthinkable.
Now they are part of the attack, if they go "missing", Riboku will have to start wondering whether they try to encircle him/go for another spot.
Also, those three (four with Kyoukai) need a huge upgrade in troops, 15.000-20.000 to travel a long distance, take out elites, take the city and then HOLD this city seems like a stretch. Especially since it is their only foothold.
Or it's just a fake and SHK personally goes to Gyou
last time we had a great war we were getting 3 chapters a week. this is gonna be such a tease
“We fear discovering that we are more than we think we are. More than our parents, children, or teachers think we are. We fear that we actually possess the talent that our still, small voice tells us. That we actually have the guts, the perseverance, the capacity. We fear that we truly can steer our ship, plant our flag, reach our Promised Land. We fear this because, if it’s true, then we become estranged from all we know. We pass through a membrane. We become monsters and monstrous.”
-- Steven Pressfield
I wonder what Ousen is planning.
"Don't count the days, make the days count"
So in that case it's likely each of the 3 Generals will have less than 100k men, since 100k=Great General IIRC.
I hope we see some interactions between Kanki/Ousen and Ouhon/Ousen.
If they didn't say that kanki and yotanwa are commanding their respective armies I could see one of the two with their top commanders and some soldiers attacking gyou along with shin, ouhon and mouten. And this commander would send a big part of the army to mountains as faint along with two others GG. Maybe is still possible because with one big army I don't know how Qin is pretending that this is surprise attack on gyou.
I knew it, saw it a mile away. Ousen is a long distance warfare god so it makes sense he's the Supreme Commander. Remember when he played both Ordo and Karin? Saw that backdoor a mile away.
Yotanwa takes care of the logistics through the mountain range where she can quickly shuffle between generals. The river is not an option for logistics since since Zhao forces will be monitoring that end.
Kanki leads the 3 brats to Gyou because Shouheikun has judged him to be unpredictable, a good match for Riboku on paper. However if we're to believe Riboku, he's read Kanki and knows his weakness. I agree that Kanki will either die or lose horribly this war.
2 week break but who cares. Get hyped.
> The newbie squad acting all nervous
> calmed down by Sosui
> followed by the badass posture of the veteran HSU members
> SHK trolling the Kanki army
> Naki's return
> Yotanwa's glorious appearance
> mountain tribe giants and females squads
> Shin, Bajio and Tajifu reunion
> Ousen's CiC
This chapter was incredibly good!!
Each army can contain 40 to 60k troops, times 3 and it becomes a 120-180k force. All led by great generals. Then there are minor generals such as Heki (probably Shoukaku aswell), specialized troops and then the new gen trio....It saddens me but Houken will definitely appear as this Qin army is overkill! Release the 3rd GH too!
2 week break but I heard the chapters will return 10 december? So 3?
This war has coalition war level potential. Can't wait
Especially interested in how these 3 generals will interact
