And so, that legendary Wu is formed. I guess.

Chapter 149 Wu
Guy: Ah, Xin! Is that you, Xin?!!
Xin: Ooh!! If it ain't the hoodlum Wei brothers! You guys came, too?!
Ping: Who're you calling hoodlums, you stupid brat?! GYAHAHAHAHA!
Narration: 245 BCE
Narration: A conflict revolving around on the borders of "Qin" and "Wei" called "Rongyang" is worsening.
Built along the side of the Huang He River, Rongyang is the entrance to the State of Wei. A place of utmost importance for both states.
Wei is gathering three armies from behind.
The State of Qin is also concentrating its armies from all regions to go after Rongyang.

Narrator: These armies are both on the scale of over 150,000.
This year's biggest battle has become Xin's first campaign.
Ping: But I really thought I'd never meet you here.
Nobody's seen you since the night that Piao died.
You didn't even show up to Piao's funeral, so I was sure you'd been killed somewhere, too.
Piao had a funeral?!
Ping: Yeah. A few days after he died.
It was an unbelievably huge funeral for that cheap Li Dian.
Everyone from around the village besides you came and cried.
Even guys from the next village over came.
Everyone really liked that guy......
I guess so.
Ping: Ah. So I guess you haven't even visited his grave, huh?
After the battle I'll show you where it is.
Xin: No, I don't think I'm gonna go.
Xin: Where I'm going is to make our dream come true.
Ping: Greatest general under the heavens, huh?
You guys always said that going way back.
Ping: Wait, something like that's never gonna happen! Just go when you get back!
Xin: Sheddep!! I said I'm gonna be it and I am!
Ping: You really are an idiot, Xin.
Xin: What'd you say? I'm gonna deck you.
Have you gotten taller?
Ping: What sorta question is that?
you seem like a different person.
Ping: Huh? How?
He looks like the same bumbling idiot as always.
Handwritten: You bastard. I'm seriously gonna do it.
Dao: Xin, where have you been these past 3 months?
Even if I told you, I'm sure you wouldn't believe me.
In Bubble: KAKAKAKA
Sign: State of Qin Royal Capital Xianyang
Chang: So this is where you were.
SFX: KAH KAH
Chang: Bi departed for the front just a little earlier.
Zheng: Wei......? The state that's blocked Qin's passage to the East for generations.
Chang: Because it has enemy states on all sides and has been open to enemy attack for centuries, all of its armies are used to battle.
And their chariot corps, steeped in tradition, are the first or second most sturdy in China.
Zheng: The "Four Jun Group" is also a huge existence... [quote bold]
Chang: ............I've also heard reports that Xin is participating in this war as well, but...
Zheng: I'm listening.
Chang: It seems it's going to be quite a brutal battle.
Hopefully he does not lose his life...
Zheng: Sounds like it's a fittingly intense first campaign for him.
Everybody's gathering around for some reason.
Maybe it's food!
Soldier: We are now forming Wu!! Wu Chiefs, gather!!
Dao: Do you not know what "Wu" are?
Ping: Just what nationality are you...?
Narrator: A "Wu" is---
Long ago, the Qin Chancellor Shang Yang established the "Shen-Wu System".
Wu, or in other words, "Five".
Foot soldiers form groups of 5 on the battlefield called "Wu". The leader of the group is called a "Wu Chief". In the Qin Army, the Wu is a basic unit and a group that always moves together. These groups of five share a single fate.
Box: For a foot soldier, whether you return home having rendered achievements or whether you come home as a corpse depends on the people that make up this Wu.
Guys: Tian You, join my g roup!
You idiot! He was with your guys last time! This time he's joining up with me!
I'll introduce you to my little sister when we get back, so join us!
Guys: It's Zhong Tie! Zhong Tie, the assassin from Fu Village!!
Handwritten: He's huuge!
Guys: All right! Join my group! I'll give you special treatment!!
Zhong Tie, there's a punk in my group that's a chef! So our food will be great!
Zhong Tie, please, join us...
Xin: UOOO I get it! So they start by going for the strong-looking guys!! [UOOO big.]
Aw, dammit! Nobody knows about me yet, I guess!
Listen up everyone! I'm Xin of Chenghu Village!
I may be small, but I'm stronger than anybody!!
In Bubble: KORAA!!
Ping: Watch out!
SFX: BYU BYU
Xin: Quit screwin' around, you bastards! Don't you know I'm gonna be greatest general under the heavens... [First sentence big.]
Ping: Hey, stop! It's painful to watch!
Guy: You guys're new, right?
You're pretty built, ain'cha?
This one's the big brother?
Then we'll take both brothers. That makes five men.
Is that shrimp your little brother?
If you don't wanna split your family up, we'll try somebody else.
Ping: Nah, that guy just lives in the same village as us. We barely even know him.
Xin: Sssssscrew this!!
Xin: Bringing five big guys together is creepy, you morons!
I'll take the five of you on myself, iiiidiots!
So you're a leftover, too, huh?
Kakaka. You're even smaller than me! That ain't good!
Well, sit down.
Us leftovers gotta stick together.
I went out of my way to talk to you, don't ignore me.
Handwritten: Geez, every onna these guys...
Guys: Huh? Those two drinking over there are the Ma Brothers, ain't they?
Ah, you're right.
Guys: Looks like we don't need you guys after all.
Hey! Ma Brotheeers!
Xin: Hey, brat!
Sit down I said!
Ping: We're back.
Handwritten: Hahaha. It's Wu Chief Ze. Alone again, huh?
He's a one-man chief~~~ Wahahahaha!
Narration: The Wu Chiefs are of a higher rank than the others, but people don't gather around the less reliable ones.
Ze: Aah. No one joined with me again...
SFX: TOBO TOBO
Ze: Are there any leftovers around~~?
A~~ two of those are kids, aren't they?
I dunno if we're gonna make it home safe this time...
Ze: Hello. I'm Wu Chief Ze Gui. Nice to meet you, everyone.
Narration: Before the start of a harsh battle, a five-man group made up of leftovers is formed!!
Xin: Who is this small old man?
Ping: Didn't he just say he was a Wu Chief?
Then are we five a group?
