god its hard to keep up with the posts
its like reading a thesis in here
anyway hill one other thing I cant believe I forgot to mention when you were talking about how kou loves its royalty, remember the kouga arc.
Now how Ryosai thought saying hakuei died in that skirmish was going to fool Kouen and Koumei is anyone's guess but he clearly wasn't that bright and more importantly he and his men didn't seem to think that royalty love applied to her.

Also this whole civilian and royalty talk is very debatable lol, AT even got special treatment (and kinda had similar power than the royalty in the grand scheme of things in Kou)
I can't believe I forgot about Ryosai
Even if he was a misogynistic prick, who looked down on Hakuei for getting her position based solely on her MV, and made that comment about killing Hakuryuu just to irk her.
It is still possible that this was a view which was shared,oh dear...
Perhaps Hakuryuu was not so misguided in ascertaining the threat he would face if he joined the army...damn, I apologize and take whatever I said about him not trying to grow in position in the army back, even if Ryosai maybe a minority, I can't deny that this is a possible sentiment shared by a lot of people, making any of his plans to get more and more influential difficult(though I still think that Gyoukuen would not have minded, if he joint the army, he needed to get some support to start a civil war and that was a good way to go.)
So unless, further clarification on how the majority viewed Hakuryuu, kudos to him for not following that path, I have been advocating
Edit: One other thing, I forgot, the soldiers conviction in Kouen is nigh unshakable, it would be quite difficult, if not impossible for Hakuryuu to be able to convince soldiers and their superiors to support him+there is Gyoukuen...another good reason to try his luck outside.
Ok now I am curious, how did Kouen exactly give up on supporting Hakuryuu, in all fairness, Kouen cast a huge shadow for Hakuryuu to even surpass, by doing things traditionally.
Here's a gag manga with Kouen coming to Hakuei's rescue in volume 3.

Sorry about the name HLL
on another point you mentioned wondering why hakuryuu didn't have a mentor.
im interested if his spear instructor will be more then part of the background in the coming chapters
he's had no lines, no presence in the story, no name, but he's clearly been with Hakuryuu since childhood. I've had a completely baseless theory that Hakuryuu believes the man was spying on him for someone (since he was there when hakuryuu mentioned the being controlled part).

tegaki blog (been checking it for updates since July last year)
Kouen expected Hakuryuu to kiss his ass, becoz that would show that he is a capable leader(), prompting Kouen to proceed in kissing Hakuryuus ass()
This would take Kouen's vagueness to a whole new level.
Dazo you got a point about Gyokuen brainwashing everyone. I will not lie since koutoku funeral this woman has been just been little fingering everyone in the royal family. Even hakuei was who was indifferent to her was buying her kool-aid.
Hll i still don't know why you are questioning why hakuryuu didn't act sooner to gain power. Other than the obvious plot reason its clear as hell he didn't reach desperation until gyokuen raped him. He always though 1. get a djinn 2. get allies out kou 3. team up with hakuei and get country back. Despite his self made isolation this was always his intent. The guy fully expected hakuei to support him with her MV and army, which is why he joined her after getting zagan. He just didn't realize she liked kouen's kool-aid more.
I hope that's the right place to ask this quetion.
It is about Kouha.
A lot of Kouha fans (that I "saw" on other sides) like to call him a psychopath and sadist.
I know that they think so because of his first appearance where he killed the bandits and later hit one of his magicans (because she did something wrong).
But it was only shown one time...
All Kou siblings seems to like fighting. I wouldn't call them psychopaths only because of that.
And that he hit one of his magicans also happend only once - in the omake etc. it is shown that he cares a lot about his subordinates. So I don't see him as a sadist ever - he doesn't seem to like to see other suffer...
So, I'm woundering, why people call him a psychopth and/or sadist...
It feels like Ohtaka decided to change his character as time passed. His psychotic tendencies were removed.
