Great interpretation there with your second spoiler, I completely overlooked that for some reason lol

But yes that would be quite interesting to see if everything plays out like Hakuyruu wants it to

Hakuryuu sure lost it there. I wonder if seeing Judar again will bring him back from the completely irrational thought process he's having? Judar isn't much better but maybe Alibaba converted him a bit lol

Liking Kouen even more and more. The way he broke down why Gyokuen is alive was awesome. I felt like he was manipulating Haku in some ways, the way he was entrusting the empire to him and stuff.

Haku is just being too stubborn. Even Aladdin admitted that his way of thinking about Depravity was changed by him and he wants to stay by his side but that wasn't enough. DAMN.

I never thought I'd say this but ALIBABA!! Talk no jutsu this bitch with ur wisdom!! still like Haku but right now he's being too much

Can't wait to see what happens with this "Kouen for decapitation" shit.

Sinbad's still not being shown. He's enjoying the show isn't he lol

So wait a second, is Kouen trying to say that people are not dead when they are killed?

But on the real side, I'm glad Hakuyruu is not pussying out on this execution stuff, you gotta show who's a real Emperor and punish the traitors.

Aladdin suffers to much when a well known character dies, so as the most powerful character right now (till Gyokuen returns) he will rescue Kouen and nobody is going to stop him.

And I dont see why Kouen is a pussy, Judar wouldn't have helped him and it was only cause Judar that Gyokuen "died"

Hakuryu is still my fave character, even though he's so fucked in the head, lmao.

I kind of wish that he had given up on revenge, though. :/ As much as I like the scenario, and the route it is taking, I wish he could have explained everything that was going on to the others, and asked for their help in rebuilding the Kou, now that Gyokuen is gone(?). As cheesy, and stupid as that sounds, I would have really liked to have seen that. But now, nearly everyone in the empire is going to despise him, and the exiled members are probably going to try to revolt, causing a second war down the road, and causing even more bloodshed. All-in-all, Hakuryu kind of fucked himself, with his decision...

Decapitation, huh... I wonder if that was just his mental decision, or if it had happened "off-screen," so to speak.

ANYWAY, I'm hyped af now, and it is all thanks to Hakuryu, and his pseudo-Sasuke moment. xD

The thing that has been bothering me was the part where Gyokuen kissed Hakuryu. The moment I've seen that I thought it would be important. I was expecting Hakuryu to be poisoned by that or something alike, but after the fight I dropped the idea.

Now that there is talk about Gyokuen coming back, do any of you think that Hakuryu could be possessed by her?

Don't see how considering she couldn't use magic. I think it was just to show how crazy she was.

I already disliked Hakuryuu, but now I'm just sick of him. Hopefully the primary focus changes to anyone but Hakuryuu sometime soon. I also hope that Gyokuen/Arba turns up again as a giant "fuck you" to the selfish and narrow minded Hakuryuu, but this seems almost inevitable at this point. It's just a matter of when.

I used to like Hakuryuu since he has a calm mind in taking about revenge at the start (despite being a little naive)... but now he is just batshit crazy.

Hakuryuu is just as looney as his mother. lol Just waiting for him to die before the manga ends. It's about time Alibaba and Judar show up.

"Second Prince, Ren Koumei : Exile" Nice
"Third Prince, Ren Kouha : Exile" Nice
"First Prince, Ren Kouen : Decapitation" Very Nice

But in all honesty, i love Hakuryuu and all but he's starting to scare me...

Kouen came off a bit better this time with his hidden resolve to take revenge, making Hakuryuu falter for a bit like the weak minded bitch he is. Don't think it was an act either. But yeah fuck Hakuryuu and Sinbad, JudaBaba needs to hurry back and heal Aladdin's poor heart.

Hakuryuu can go to hell already. Pityful man.
Hakuei better becomes the vessel for Arba, or can go to hell. Her stupid traition derived in this for her step-brother who loved and respected her.
Anime was a mistake. Heil Manga.

I think it was an awesome chapter. Really reflective of reality history, not some wussy shonen story where everyone lives.

1. Despite my intense love for the entire Kou family, when I calmed down emotionally I really; appreciated the choice of "DECAPITATION" for Kouen. It made the war real. He was the leader of the Rebel Army, and when conquests are won, leaders die.

2. Brings good family drama. I'm curious though, what does it say about First Princess Hakuei and Eighth Princess Kougyoku? I'd imagine they're riddled with guilt: Hakuei betrayed her cousins, got her love killed; Kougyoku was an unwilling participant in the victory, and I can't imagine her reaction when she finds out she was the reason Kouha lost.

3. Hakuyuu is batshit man. He was the immature one, while Kouen had his stuff really planned out. As people say, "if it's something worth doing, do it well." He legitimately planned and prepared for Gyokuen's execution, not some half-assed, rage-driven attempt to kill the flesh part of Gyokuen. Hakuyuu is stupid as hell for sentencing Kouen to execution. It is perfectly possible for a winning king to keep the old king alive (for the shame) and use their talent. On the other hand, killing Kouen is just sowing the seed for eventual uprising from his citizens. Kouen was all-round popular, and as a bunch of siblings and vassals willing to die for him. How's Hakuyuu going to handle that? Kill them all? That's just a recipe for more trouble. As he is now, Haku can't rule a country.

4. Which brings me to the next point. Would the authority of Kou fall to Sinbad's hands? Very possible. And Haku just a puppet government? Even more possible. But with the advent of Judar and Alibaba, perhaps that would change.

5. Kouen might even be spared.

6. Aladdin is preparing to be a hermit...but it's real sad, a world without variety.

Extraordinary chapter, all in all. Can't wait for the next!

I know it's pointless commenting on old chapters especially when the manga is over lol but just reading this now... Damn man, Hakuryuu is just a crazy piece of shit. I was ready to give him another chance if he saw reason here and listened to others, but nope he's a lost cause for me. And he even has the gall to call out someone else for their "selfish desires"... I'm gonna be sad to see Kouen go if he does get executed. Really grew to appreciate his character more and more. Anyway, moving on to find out more in the next chapters haha.
