THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The episode was good. So the preview for the next episode will be on the Queen Regent. I can't wait that moment, but I think ,they will cut that scene from of manga.

They're just throwing Special 300 Men Units at us, all related to someone participating or personally participating in the war against Zhao.

That mini heart attack on the Wei soldier that almost stabbed Ang.
That Feixin Unit formation on the enemy's camp and his laugh in front of Wang Ben
And lastly, 2 meanings of the Third Force has shown.
Loved this episode so much, looks like the next episode will be Sei meeting with his mother and about his past.

So the only solution have to be that Zheng build an even bigger harem of his own! Go go Romance Comedy Arc!

So many things happen....

Peasants laughing at a group of warrior class.
That Laugh and Face combined.... i couldn't stop myself from laughing along.

Who was the guy in pink robes? Is he a guy? He just said he didn't want to fight because he wanted to go shopping.

The men of the King faction finally realized the power of the harem...

Yeah that mist scene was tense as hell, really well done. I went from thinking "gimme a break I don't care about what motivates this little kid" to "goddamn I'm so glad he didn't get run through, such determination and loyalty!"

I have a feeling they'll keep alluding to Wang Qi's death many more times this season, and that feels will not cease to be had. Liked the soundtrack with Xin staring up at the stars.

Lol @ Xin's laugh, sittin on top of a tent like a boss.

Bi's character design seemed a little off this episode, but everything else was good animation wise. And I loved the pacing this episode(aside from the Queen's pace) splitting the episode seemed to flow better here, and the balance between action and politics is done nicely.

I don't get it.
Wasn't Zheng's mother supposed to be a peasant or something like that? If so, how would she grab so much power in so little time...

Well once Zeng was appointed as king, I'm guessing she would have been able to establish some kind of role in society. However, courtesans was not what I was expecting. Maybe because she gave birth to a king she gained the respect of the lower class and built her way up from there. These are my speculations though

She was a servant and became the last emperor cocumbine. It is not surprising especially when one is the favorite. Excuse me, but this is a moment that she has a power.

but... if she has that much power, shouldn't she have helped her son?
Or does she just not care about him and only cared about power?
But if her son had lost, wouldn't the other prince go after her at some point anyway...? I don't know if just does not make enough sense to me...

Interesting episode. Considering that she's the mother of Shen, what was the Queen doing during the court struggle in the first season? And how are maids and eunuchs constitute a military power?
The highlight would have to be Xin laughing like a baws at Wang Ben.

You guys are forgetting something important. The Queen Dowager and the harem might seem harmless, but they have the duplicate of the royal seal and with that, they can mobilize armies at will. That is why Zheng and gang were shocked when Si Shi received the scroll with the royal seal from Zhao Gao, the eunuch who gave Si Shi the sealed scroll the previous night.

Well they was been suppose to show her. In the manga they showed her right after they made that Alliance. IIRC she even sat in his king chair while he stepped down.

I found Xin laughing at Wang to be priceless.

Meng... someone annoying seems to have been introduced.

And the reveal of the 3rd faction took like 7 minutes of stalling...

The Aang/Kou Scene where he "almost" gets stabbed was way better in the manga, he actually gets stabbed through a corpse he's lying under and he bears the pain and doesn't shout out.

Wait, WTF did I miss? Is the episode 43 "The Third Force" on Funimation.com the wrong one? It felt like a bigger timeskip than between S1 and S2. And none of the comments I'm reading above match what I just watched...

The question isn't "What anime do you like?" That is merely a list.
The question is "Why do you like it?" That tells a story. Your story.
