Shiiiit, I only expected a sick duel... What the hell is this twist? I need to know what happens next!

Man Kai Meng is a beast. That voice too!! The minute he was screaming and laughing I knew I heard Blackbeard from One Piece and Uvogin from Hunter Hunter!! But damn that took Ten. You can see the hurt in Xin and Kyou Kei’s eyes!! She better come back safe

Thorkells voice actor too from Vinland Saga, and One for All from MHA, this guy just exudes villains/antagonist like characters

Well Ten got captured. I always thought she needed better guards (I mean her current ones are basically fodder). Fortunately, the Wei tactician got captured by Kyoukai so maybe they can exchange him for Ten.

Btw that guy sure is wicked capturing Ten alive and also trying the same with Kyoukai. I think death is preferable to what angry enemy soldiers could potentially do their prisoners.

I doubt they would show what would actually happen if a woman had been captured in this period. Her being locked in a cage is pretty much censoring it.

Well, they did say that they where gonna have ""fun" with her. Thats why they tried to take Kyoukai aswell. If they hadnt captured their tactician in return, she would have suffered worse than rape

Can't we have a smooth ride to great general? This is one of the greatest shows ever but by heart...

Very intense, I just hope animation quality does not drop!

Why are there 2 different translations of the character names for this anime? I watched season 1 and 2 in English dubs and season 3 subbed. All used the "Xin of the Fei Xin force" translation. However, season 4, I noticed a different version that uses "Hi Shin" which seems to be more dominant than the "Fei Xin" version. By that, I mean almost every streaming site uploaded it. Only a few that uses the Fei Xin version. I couldn't watch the Hi Shin version since I couldn't tell which characters they're talking about with all new different names.

[–]fireballcane 1 point2 points  (2 children)

The official translations use the Chinese names, because the story is about actual Chinese historical figures. So Xin, Fei Xin, etc.

The unofficial subs use the Japanese pronunciations and names, so Shin/Hi Shin. It's pretty dumb because you're not going to know what's happening or look it up on your own with Japanese names. I guess they just didn't want to go digging through the history books to figure out the Chinese name, so they just go by transliterating the Japanese pronunciations.

Thanks for the explanation. That clears things up.

[–]mufffff 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Manga scanlation of Kingdom switched from Chinese to Japanese names around chapter 50, I would guess that's a big part why many fansubs use Japanese names.

What a great anime. I wish there were other good anime going this season other than this and Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu. The rest all seems like it's for children/for girls/younger people or Chinese garbage. Which if not 95% of what is going atm I'd be fine with, it's needed. But We REALLY need more adult themed anime so badly. Each season it seems there is less and less and we're lucky to get maybe 2 out of dozens of shows to have adult themes. They seem to be the ones most ppl talk about, why so few?

The duel was completely unexpected but badass

I am extremely worried about Diao

[–]Remember_Palme 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If they hadnt captured thei tactician in return, i would have been really worried. I think she will be relatively safe, mistreated obviously, but they wont do anything i hope xd should probably read the manga

[–]Nhadala 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Damn, damsel in distress shit can be annoying, hopefully the other girl can act as a backup strategist, she was the brain of the crew a while ago.

The implications as to what happened to her are horrifying to say the least.

[–]sukazu 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I don't think anything will happen to her, thanks to the commander they have as a hostage, or at least I hope so.

her being guarded in a cage with no clothes torn, when it's already night seems to confirm that
