LEADERSHIP > KNOWLEDGE AM I RIGHT?
why I can not find Kingdom porn?
It's just not made for that kind of stuff.
seems it is not popular.
But that makes no sense. Riboku's leadership is tied with Ei Sei's. This would imply someone of higher...oh...right.
chink stuff is never popular unless genderbent, a fact of life.
If Shin is Ouki's arrow, doesn't this mean Ouki is the #1 of the Ten Bows of China? He never misses.
But Ouki is dead....
>Arrow is still in flight
>Bihei as a chick
>Cannot imagine Bihei without buckteeth and mustache
>Slaps it on genderbent version
I'm kind of glad it isn't.
I just want to see Riboku's smug and smirk get washed off.
Is that hard to ask?
>Wife late into pregnancy still fighting
>Water breaks in the middle of the front lines
>Just poops the baby out and proceeds to kill shit
It's probably coming, though I hesitate to call Riboku smug. He's a bit too big of a corward for that.
I want to drink with Duke.
Qin are a bunch of pussies. I am bored fighting them. I would smash that arrogant prick king on one hit. I am the mighty Kanmei.
>tfw no delicious Karin femdom doujins
>tfw no Kyoukai x Shin x Ten action
>tfw no Mou Ten
say that a bit louder, i can't hear you.
I hoped Sei would take the field. He probably plans to use is status as king to rouse morale, I mean he can't ask the citizens to fight to death while he flees the city.
He looks like a decent strategist but probably not Riboku's equal, I hope shouheikun will assist him.
I wonder how many troops they have (I remember that Kanyou still has 15000 soldiers) and how many citizens live in Sai. To that number we can add about Shin/Heki's 1500/2000 soldiers.
It seems like they are enough to give a decent fight.
Shit is going down.
Time for Shin to shine.
Kanmei you're dead go home
Sei is Riboku/Renpa's equal in leadership (all tied for 2nd place), so you can kinda estimate how powerful his voice will be from the past arcs.
Look at this guy. He really DID get stronger after Ouki died. He's so much more buff now. And round.
Riboku should still be able to crush him without breaking much of a sweat. Unless something unexpected were to happen
>Unless something unexpected were to happen
Something like 80k angry mountain men?
It sure would be unfortunate if an army of 100,000 mountain tribesmen showed up at the battles climax
I want to see Riboku's face when that happens
I don't read raws, but Shouheikun is almost a match for Riboku in knowledge. So it's not that bad.
The biggest problem for them right now is the overwhelming difference in their armies at the moment, and handicapped Houken. But seeing as how Shin's mentor of the arc just died, I believe it's time for him to step up and fill that gap. Maybe not win, but he's gotta hold out right? What if the entire Hi Shin Unit gang bangs Houken?
But if Sai ends up with less than double of Riboku's armies, equal leadership means nothing when the quality of your soldiers is inferior. Maybe Ousen saves the day? I dunno I'm too scared to hover over the black bars.
Shop Riboku's hair and eyebrows onto Karin's what the fuck face.
>conscripted peasants vs vertically charging cavalry
>implying the fucking walls of Sai would even stop Kaine as she goes Sengoku Basara and just runs straight up 90 degrees and runs down the wall defenders
The Xiongnu and their horses must have been the ancestors of fucking Mario and Yoshi or something.
Shin keeps stealing all the famous general's weapons
Bullshit. Shin completed 5 tasks for Duke Hyou. He earned that quest reward.
Duke Hyou's shield is earned from dailies?
No matter how many times people talk shit about Kingdom's art, you gotta admit the details of Sei's armor and the background/characters is just so ridiculously high it's kinda crazy to think this is a weekly series when you compare it to Naruto/Bleach/Fairy Tail.
Only One Piece comes close, and I do not recall One Piece has that kind of detail when it comes to clothes/armor/etc.
one piece does not come close.
Well, One Piece has a lot of art per page, and most are more unique than say, a bunch of guys in the same armor. I think it's a different kind of detail, but it should still count.
Oda does have to take breaks once a month though, so there's that. Hara is some unrecognized monster like Ousen is right now. Guy probably had kids longer than Oda did, and he's still going like crazy.
Just like how it was unfortunate Riboku sneaked an entire army behind Ouki's ass during Bayou right? What goes around comes around.
This shit is so legit. The payoff of every battle is fucking epic. I get boners reading this.
Kingdom gives me the manliest boner
Not an ANGRY boner?
How many men did Reeboks brought to Kanyou?
I'm not sure but when fapping after reading kingdom my boner feels like a tool of war
I guess the battle with duke brought them down a bit
The best war arc is about to happen.
After this its going to be lots of Smaller battles and Politics.
This battle is literally the climax of the story of china unification. Once Qin wins this war its they take the momentum historically and just slowly consume all the other nations.
This was the biggest battle all other battles are not going to be as epic as this one.
BTW although this kid that is about to be born will be a prince. History tells us he is basically a patsy to his teachers who use him to rule the nation cause his dad is too busy being king to raise him.
Whats left is that the character shin is suspected and supposed to be based on will fuck up the invasion of Chu in the final push and get replaced by another general. Then nothing is heard of him again.
40k initially, before Duke Hyou raped some in the ass from behind.
They have 4k reinforcements way behind, but I'm not sure if those guys will make it in time.
No he has about 50k soldiers I think.
Pluse core elite units from each other nation.
But historically this arc wasn't even suppose to be as big. The author took liberties to create a much mightier coalition than was recorded.
The Shiji never even put Qin in danger from this coalition. It was more like horrible attempt. Stuff like Kankoku Pass and Riboku being part of this is all made up.
The only truth of the coalition arc is that Houken was suppose to be the Supreme Commander. Kan Mei was never Supreme Commander at any point in recorded history.
>Xin/Shin didn't achieve General of the Heavens as told by history.
40k core troops, another few thousand on the way. There are about 5-10k outriders and skirmishers with such a detachment.
So they prob sit around 50k or so when the siege starts.
Just like how the 300 Spartans also had 600 retainers with them. And 1000 others from another city state.
Historically the biggest battle in Kingdom will be Wang Jian/Ousen raping the shit out of Chu while Li Xin/Ri Shin licks his wounds. so it's quite possible for Hara to take more liberties.
He might have, he scored a huge achievement against Yan right before the campaign against Chu where he got butt blasted by traitorous scum Shouheikun and 7 of his lieutenants die from Xiang Yu's Ousen like nigger move.
Dude stop being autistic, anyone following this knows its got a lot of liberties in it to make it more epic.
Just like how some people are GIANTS, but its just a dramatic tool that is actually reflecting their Charisma more then their actual size.
And the amount of characters that are women or gender bended.
I don't doubt that. I meant 40k as in active fighting troops meant to be used for the siege.
If he took any more from Keisha, Duke Hyou would have found out much sooner.
>And 1000 others from another city state.
didnt that 1000 also bring 3000 retainers as well? How the fuck did they lose that other pass?
Yeah that 40k core is well trained heavy infantry. Basically almost all elites in comparison to normal foot troops.
You seem to be misinterpreting me. Let's get this straight.
>Person I quote claims this is the biggest war in Kingdom due to numbers
>I point out the exaggerated numbers are for story telling purposes
>This implies that the future arcs are also capable of benefiting from this
>This implies there is no reason to believe this will be the most epic battle in Kingdom and we have much more to look forward to
>My personal theory will be Ousen's inevitable betrayal resulting in a massive civil war, which would be completely fictional but perfectly fine because Ousen/Ouhon's death and later years are not recorded at all.
You need to calm down friend.
>4000 gay men vs 15-20k Persian zerg rush
They did die to last man fighting as well. Give them some credit.
I must disagree with you here. Due to the requirement of speed, a good portion should be cavalry, even if they do not include the Ganmon vanguard which were obviously not part of Keisha's retinue.
Maybe 30k heavy infantry and 10k elite cavalry? Just a guess. Might be a bit more if they have those overpowered cavalry archers too (that Chu seem to suck dick at)
Yeah, while exaggerated there's no denying the Spartans took a giant shat on the Persian's zerg army.
But I honestly think the Persians were to blame as well for having such a poorly outfitted army. They were definitely not decked out and well trained.
Might be cool
They are playing up the Ousen wanting to be king stuff to the hilt.
Off topic but why the fuck is there no Total War game for China's unification and Three kingdoms eras? The shit is just out there?
Why must I play kessen2 on PS2 of all things to get my fix.
You can probably google the reasons for Total War, but I doubt most of them are credible/verified. As far as I know it's an unknown.
At least you can emulate kessen2. Do we even have PS3 emulators yet? God damn it.
40k elite troops by Reeboks vs Sei's last stand ~20k untrained troops.
Will the mountain people come to Sei's aid?
Or will Ousen come out of nowhere and showers Reeboks troop with arrows behind their backs?
Find out next time!
But.....but I thought the middle east had the most superior metallurgy of all time for god knows how long?
Damascus steel swords rape everything. Or did they not discover that yet?
The Persians just didn't have any heavy infantry capable of taking on a hoplite phalanx.
But if they had superior metallurgy can't they just shit em up with arrows? I mean the legends speak of arrows that block out the SUN.
Surely there's no way those Spartans had armor that could survive taking that many super steel arrowheads?
Actually, I always wondered why didn't the Persians simply not resort to fire. You know, the #1 game changer in war back then.
Damascus steel originates from India. It wasn't until the medieval period when Persia actually made their own instead of importing the steel from India I think.
Pretty much, they were coming from areas where light infantry was king due to the Climate and entering an area where heavily armed warfare was the top of the heap.
You humble me with your corrections Hox. So....back to question 2...why not fire?
Don't you need oil or something for fire arrows? Can you just dip an arrowhead in a campfire and light it up?
Their bows and arrowtips didn't have that much penetrative armour against the Greek bronze shield and armor. Some military historians like Richard Gabriel estimate deaths from arrows during the warfare of the classical antiquity to be very low. There are very few accounts of ranged units completely decimating decently armoured troops.
Kessen2 doesn't work well on the emulator.
And the vikings had their crucible fired Ulfberht blades that was better then any of that. But that guy that made those swords didn't share his secrets with many and the art died out.
Yeah I own a PS2 and a copy of it.
Ulfberht blades are made from steel ingots imported from India as well.
Well, you're not lighting the arrowhead itself. Pic related.
Persia didn't have access to bronze arrowheads themselves? Or does equal material still not give arrows that power due to the bows sucking?
Given how large Spartan shields were I can totally see it though.
>Viking raids my town
>I try to fight back with my blade
>his Ulfberht blade cuts my sword in half
>fucking Ulfberht swords
So why didn't they just shoot a bunch of those at the hoplites? If you shower them with fire even if they don't get hurt the smoke's bound to scatter or break their formation eventually.
What if Ouki led the Persian army instead?
It still would lose to the superior katana.
You have to keep in mind that bows are fired fairly far away, which reduces much of their power. They also didn't have any specialized arrowheads designed to pierce metal armour at that time. For most of history, the main purpose of archers or any ranged units in battle isn't for "fire" (killing enemies) but for "shock" (affecting enemy morale).
I don't know......
>Ulfberht blades are made from steel ingots imported from India as well.
Its not about the ingots you goof. Its about the process.
The Crucible fired method makes a high carbon blade steel blade. That rivals even modern steel making processes.
That makes a lot of sense.
Oh god, not this shit....
>buy +ULFBERH+T sword from shady viking
>inscription reads +ULFBERHT+
I think Hox was pointing out how the Ulfberht blade was also limited by resources, not just the hording of it's smiths.
For all intents and purposes, it didn't affect the wars in the Viking era much due to scarcity.
Ketil, is dat u?
The steel ingots had a lot to do with it making it superior to their contemporary iron swords though.
Didn't Ketil Ironfist buy a fake one? Or was that legit?
WHAT IF WE MADE A VIKING SWORD MIXED WITH KATANA?
You ever play romance of the three kingdoms series? It's some good shit
But...why not just make a glaive/halberd? Just by logic having a longer reach gives you well...more reach and also more power.
Never clarified. I'd like to know if Yukimura is aware of the whole inscription controversy.
Ouki's lips alone would crush the Spartans.
>universe implodes due to Indian ingots and Japanese folding and Viking carbon blade able to cut space time.
Ouki could probably take the spartans single-handedly.
You forgot infused with Chinese tea. Or was that chi? I forget.
I have them all, Its sad that they are not making any new ones but keep pushing out dynasty warriors shit.
>made by shigurie from Histories strongest disciple
Might as well go all out.
And then get hit by a straw Persian arrow in the back?
>Fuck I forgot to turn off friendly fire
Since we are going all out who would wield the ultimate blade?
Why would this blade need a wielder.
No point in making it if it's just gonna collect dust.
That's still a wielder!
Its would be so strong that it would not need a weilder.
It would have cut everything it needed to cut before it even existed to be cut.
Its just that powerful.
A true sword needs no hero.
It will be wielded by some wannabe hot-blooded shounen.
So it was the sword's fault Thors died. Bastard!
And has a harem for some reason even though he does nothing to merit it.....
And then she goes away. Fuck bittersweet endings.
Dynasty Warriors. nuff said.
>mfw Sei has an actual harem
>mfw he actually makes use of it
>mfw Shin's so awesome he actually deserves Kyoukai and Ten's attention
why is Kingdom so based?
Damn it, so used to Xin whenever I read it like that around here I can only think of that annoying tripfag...
It has a very low drop chance.
Why read a manga about the loser general shin?
The king leading a bunch of peasants into battle is pretty motivating.
Isn't it sad?
All this idealistic thoughts about him, all the promises ,Oukis arrow, great general under the heavens and whatever.
That he is going to fail
WHEN THE FUCK ARE IS THE MOUNTAIN PRINCESS SHOWING UP
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK
Well now they're going to defend in Sai city in a near-hopeless. I say now is the best time for her to come. Riding on Rankai.
in 50 chapters or so
Truly best girl is unmatched.
AND THERE WE HAVE IT, RANKAI > ULFBERHT
Why is she blonde? Isn't she supposed to be asian? Did people even dye their hair at that time?
I have to wait that long for mountain man rape? Damn. Also did they explain why the mountain tribe took so long to come to Qin's aid?
Well She's also supposed to be a guy.
Because they are in the fucking mountains killing people
Everyone else who wants a piece of their territory. Which is...pretty much everyone outside of Qin's borders.
Kingdom is so fucking good I can't even
The last few chapters have been amazing.
Look at Riboku, his hair is blonde, and that guy is smack dab in the middle of Zhao.
It's just liberties taken, so you can differentiate.
Is this a legit explanation or are you just making shit up?
Sei doesn't really make use of the harem. He picked an average looking girl every night so he could make everyone believe he was using the harem when he just wanted peace and quiet.
Do you not remember the Xiongnu and other mountain tribes?
The entire point of the mountain people arc was to establish that by allying with Qin, Yotanwa had security and reason to set forth to conquer her own lands, which are the mountainous borders of Qin.
If you're gonna ask why the mountain people took so long to get here, you should be questioning why Sei didn't request for their help earlier, not the other way around.
In the mean time, Shin will finally learn to alpha as hard as Bajio does.
He impregnated at least 2 girls, didn't he? He might have slept with more.
Did we ever see the other one? Why the hell is she never mentioned?
Historically it's only relevant a lot later. Patience is the answer to most questions regarding Kingdom, it's not like Kubo's writing this.
You know, this begs the question....would Riboku have been able to defeat the mountain people if he fought them at Bayou?
I want to see banjo vs houken
