I am a big fan of this manhua!

It doesn't look to be anything special at first, but it gets really good after some chapters.

IMO, it's better than Blood and Steel.

It's really fortunate that it started getting translated again.

I really dont like the way faces are drawn, so that put me off for a while, but this is actually pretty good!

 

I've only read from the attack on the palace, I guess I'll read what happened before then sooner or later.

A manga set in the Warring States Era of China.

http://www.batoto.ne...cs/kingdom-r642

There are 28 volumes out in Japan, the scans are up to chapter 58 so far.

It's good.

Never knew anyone liked it here, been following the anime which doesn't resume again until Summer, checked the manga a bit but largely didn't bother to look at it for the most part due to 2 main reasons;

 

1. The frequency of scanned chapters is highly erratic (I'm not slating the guys doing the subs)

 

2. The scanned chapters are way behind the anime meaning since I'm quite far ahead in comparison to the scanned chapters I only look for certain highlight moments from the manga.

I have  heard that the Anime is rather bad compared to the manga, and as I don't really like Anime in general, I'll stick with the manga.

New chapters are up to 69.

Gokei vs. Duke Hyou is intriguing, wonder how Shin will end up... I have the feeling he won't solely stay at the instict-side.

And Ouki and his partner are still creeping me out... is Tou even chinese? He looks european to me... though Ouki is a really interesting character.

New chapter go from 70 - 81 http://www.batoto.ne..._turnip-farmers

 

Finallycaught up with this in a few days. Definitely an interesting read
really, to present the rise of the Qin Dynasty from the point of view of
a fictional general, Shin, and of course the emperor Qin Shi Huang.
This is also the major point that differs from "Ravages of Time" which
is said to concentrate on Sima Yi but actually tells the story of many
characters without adapting their point of view completely. Besides
that, both mangas/manhuas are rather similar, even if they depict
different eras.

Yep, it's always nice to have long mangas getting scanned in fast pace... And there are still 20 volumes or so to go ^^

I found the thing with the assasins a bit weird, imo it would've been better to focus on Shin's actual military career instead of giving him such special shots.

The final omake with the armor was great, btw ^^

This is one of the reasons why this manga gives off a Shounen vibe for me. The main character is just in the middle of everything and gets always a special role even if it does not make sense or is not required which is not necessarily a bad thing of course but makes it seem more like the typical Shounen i know.

Chapters from 86-90

 

If Kyoukai is already this overpowered, what monster will Ouki be?

And I find it odd that Ryu is doing the coup d'etat... I think it could be someone else.

Ouki is pretty awesome. He's probably my favorite character next to Shin. I'm really looking forward to the next war.

Chapter 91-93

Evil traps everywhere :shakefist:

Not much happened though, wonder if Ten would really learn from Kyoukai even if teached (which I doubt)

Chapter 94-96

 

Cruel stuff.

Also, I really hope the conflict with the chancellor won't be solved by a simple single fight (like the war arc, though that was at least to illustrate the differing positions of commanding in battle), some politics or greater schemings would be good instead.

Ryu rules. That guy is an awesome character. The chance to defeat him is probably by making his faction fall into internal conflict, then again, as long as he's around, that might not be possible... so he'd have to be separated from them.

And I think the Six Generals System will be installed again, but probably with more generals under more heads, with Ryu being only one of them. Ouki comes to my mind there as another one. He'd probably even enjoy a conflict with Ryu's faction.

Chapters are up to 105.

 

It really feels like Shonen now, but it still is really good.. with Ryu's faction introduced and hyped like that, there is finally a real antagonist.

I smell war brewing. And Ouki is a boss.
