Vol. 53 Ch. 576 - Ousen's Orders
Avatar
Honestly, I'm hoping Shin will confront Ousen about this, standing up for Ouhon. While it might not seem like it makes a lot of sense, if Ouhon truly isn't the child of Ousen then Shin might see Ouhon less as a pampered brat and more like, as Kanki put it best, "Kindred spirits".
Though that might be hoping for too much.

I also want to believe something that petty is not the reason behind Ousen's actions. They're at war, I can't believe he would prioritize such things. But still, this chapter hit a little too close to home. As someone who was told the same thing to my face by my own father (while knowing he had those thoughts since long before, when I was still a child), it's painful, a whole damn lot. Even though I've tried to ignore it and act as if it's nothing, I can't deny that it has affected me. So reading this, my heart aches for Ouhon. Whatever Ousen's reasons might be, if Ouhon thinks it's because of that matter, it can only hurt him. The one thing he might have wanted the most his whole life would be being accepted and recognized; and if, despite his talent and everything, he still isn't being recognized (or thinks he isn't - not that his father's behaviour could make him think otherwise), well, that's something that fucks you up. That being said, I kind of hope to see Shin meddling; it would be hilarious and it definitely calls for some character development!

It's really surprising every time Shin shows insight of his own.

I agree. If that was a problem, he wouldn't have taken Ouhon in this army and sent him with Yotanwa or Kanki instead. And he would still appoint another one of Akou's generals as commander. There's obviously something else going on.

And add to that that we don't know what has been happening in the center and on the left for the last two days, so the whole battle situation might have shifted already.

@Poklamez agree, hopefully there is.

I don't believe Ousen would let petty family afairs intefere in his strategy, he doesn't exactly strike me as the sentimental type. There should be another ploy at work here.
