Chapter 151 Adulation of Angels! (2)

With reason and rules on his side, how could Zhou Weiqing not take advantage of that? Zhou Weiqing was definitely adept in the art of argument.

Of course, Shen Bu was no easy foe, and she immediately retorted: “What about your entire Battalion drinking? The rules also state that there can be no drinking in camp, this is a very serious rule… do not tell me that you do not know.”

Zhou Weiqing did not even bother looking at her, instead turning to Shen Ji, saying: “As long as Legion Commander Shen Ji can give me a proper accounting about the Sixteenth Regiment coming to cause trouble, I can easily give you an accounting about the drinking.”

Upon hearing those words, Shen Bu started. Causing trouble in camp was definitely no small matter, but both sides did not have any casualties, so it would not be too serious. However, having an entire Battalion drinking to a drunken state, that was definitely much more serious. As the officer in charge, if charged with maximum punishment, Zhou Weiqing could even be beheaded.

Upon hearing that, Shen Ji was also in an awkward situation. At this point, he was clear that he needed to be absolutely fair in handling this matter. If not for the fact that Zhou Weiqing and Shangguan Fei’er were from the Heaven’s Expanse Palace, perhaps he would have already ordered their arrest. Still, his vision was extremely sharp, and he had also been given a huge shock upon seeing the mail armour that the Peerless Battalion soldiers were wearing. From the look of it and the glow, it all seemed like titanium alloy! How could that be…!?

“The Sixteenth Regiment has intruded into the First Unique Battalion’s Camp to cause trouble, Regiment Commander Shen Bu has not exercised properly leadership and will be recorded with a serious demerit. All those who participated in this incursion, step out now. Each will be punished with forty strokes, to be carried out immediately.” Shen Ji bit the bullet and made the decision on the spot, giving the order.

If Green Wolf had really died, Zhou Weiqing would not have let the matter slide so easily with just that. However, since his teacher had already saved Green Wolf, and the Peerless Battalion did not have any actual losses, there was no necessity in further increasing the enmity to an irreversible point. As such, Zhou Weiqing did not sound off during the process, watching the over hundred soldiers from the Sixteenth Battalion, including the two Battalion Commanders, get dragged out. They had already gone through a beating from the Peerless Battalion, and now the other Sixteenth Regiment soldiers had to administer the beatings upon them, and watching this happen, Zhou Weiqing’s anger subsided. The other Peerless Battalion soldiers also showed looks of satisfaction on their faces. However, several of them still had worried looks on their faces. After all, no matter what, a collective drinking was no small matter, and they waited in silence to see how Zhou Weiqing would handle the matter.

Shen Bu’s face had almost turned green as she watched her subordinates get beaten, but she could not do anything about it, and she could only watch on, stewing in anger.

After the forty lashes, most of the Sixteenth Regiment men who had been beaten could not even get up, and they had to be carried away. As she watched that all happen, though she knew she should not continue provoking Zhou Weiqing, she could not help but ask him angrily: “My men have already received their punishment, so what is the accounting you said? You were all drinking, and even those Regiments camped around could smell the wine. What do you have to say to that? Don’t tell me that you lost your memory, let’s see how you account for that.”

Zhou Weiqing said passively: “Since I have already said I will give an accounting, I will definitely do so. Men, bring the remaining of the food we ate last night, and let Legion Commander Shen Ji and Regiment Commander Shen Bu have a look.”

Shen Ji was originally rather irritated that Shen Bu would continue pushing the issue, but now that he heard Zhou Weiqing’s words, he started in surprise. He was really going to give an actual accounting? After all, drinking in camp was a very huge issue. Previously, he had already been prepared to gloss over the matter, and if not for Shen Bu suddenly speaking out, he was already about to leave with his men. In his eyes, Zhou Weiqing was after all from the Heaven’s Expanse Palace, how could he possibly go to military court? Even if he did so, they would not be able to actually punish him. However, now that he looked closely at Zhou Weiqing, he saw the confidence in him. It was clear he had something up his sleeve.

Yet, what reason could he possibly have for allowing his men to drink?

In a matter of moments, several large cauldrons were carted up, holding the remains of the last night’s meal. They had been drinking and eating through the night, and naturally they had not managed to clear it up yet. The cauldrons still had some remaining food, large pieces of meat floating in oil.

Seeing the large cauldrons in front of him, Shen Ji looked towards Zhou Weiqing questioningly.

Zhou Weiqing smiled faintly and said: “Legion Commander Shen Ji, this is what we ate last night. You have been fighting in the northern borders for many years, and I am sure you can tell what meat this is right?”

On hearing his words, a notion struck Shen Ji, and he quickly stepped forward to examine the contents.

The war wolf bones were not the same as other ordinary wild beasts, and ordinarily army rations would not be able to feed their soldiers with so much meet. Shen Bu also stepped up to look at the contents of the cauldrons, as she did not understand what Zhou Weiqing had meant.

All of a sudden, she exclaimed in surprise: “What… this is…? Is this wolf meat?”

Shen Ji had also noticed the same thing, and he said: “This… it looks like the war wolf mounts of the Wolfman Tribe. The war wolf meats are large and tough, much unlike other wild animals, and their bones are also shaped differently and extremely tough.”

Zhou Weiqing nodded in agreement and said: “That is right, this is the meet from war wolves. This time, we have returned to the Seventh Legion, and we have also brought a gift for Commander Shen Ji. Men, bring over two hundred of the war wolf corpses for Legion Commander Shen Ji!”

Shen Bu said uncertainly: “What does that got to do with your drinking?”

Zhou Weiqing looked at her disdainfully before saying mockingly: “For you to be able to become a Regiment Commander with that brain of yours, I can’t help but say that you must have gotten in through the back door and connections. Let me ask you, in the army, under what circumstance is it allowed to drink?”

Shen Bu said angrily: “What circumstance? There is no circumstance, it is against the rules.”

Zhou Weiqing gave a humph and ignored her, turning his gaze to Shen Ji.

By that point, Shen Ji had begun to understand, and he said solemnly: “There is only one circumstance where it is allowed to drink… that is after a victory over our enemies. Furthermore, it has to be a major victory before soldiers are allowed to drink in celebration. So many war wolves… Battalion Commander Zhou, you fought with the Wolf Cavalry soldiers?”

Zhou Weiqing nodded and said: “Before we returned to camp yesterday, our Peerless Battalion fought again the Swift Wolf Regiment.”

Hearing the words ‘Swift Wolf Regiment’, both Shen Ji and Shen Bu’s expressions changed. They had spent quite some time in the northern borders and had clashed many times with the WanShou Empire armies, and the losses every year was extremely high. Sometimes, they were even forced to retreat to the TianBei City for a last ditch defence. How could they not know of the notorious Swift Wolf Regiment? That was the absolute elite of the Wolfman Tribe, and their leader Butler was a well known nine-Jeweled Heavenly Jewel Master, extremely ferocious and savage in combat. Even if the entire Seventh Legion were to clash with them directly, they would not be at any good advantage.

“Nonsense, with just the few of you, if you really met the Swift Wolf Regiment, you would all be dead.” Shen Bu’s expression was full of disbelief.

Zhou Weiqing smiled faintly and said: “I do not need you to believe me, as facts are louder than words. The Wolfman Tribe corpses are still littered in that area, and Legion Commander Shen Ji can always dispatch men to check. We only brought back a portion of the war wolf mount corpses as our spoils of war, and left all the rest there. In the battle against the Swift Wolf Regiment, we killed four thousand of them… is that considered a major victory? In the fight against the ferocious Swift Wolf Regiment, we did not sustain any injuries, yet when we returned here, we were injured by our allies. Legion Commander Shen Ji, if it were you, could you tolerate such a thing? Today, my brother here was lucky not to die, otherwise, I would not have let it go so easily.”

Shen Ji looked at Zhou Weiqing with a complicated expression in his eyes. Just like Shen Bu, he could believe what he had heard… could not believe that it was all true. After all, the Peerless Battalion only numbered how many people? At the most, slightly over a thousand men… being able to take down four times their number against the Swift Wolf Regiment, he just could not believe it. The war wolf mounts were unbelievably quick, and even if the Seventh Legion fought against them, as long as it wasn’t some sneaky ambush, they would not be able to get such a similar grand result.

All of a sudden, Shen Bu’s expression changed. However, she did not speak, instead tugging at Shen Ji’s sleeve, and her gaze shifted subtly towards Long Shiya.

Although Shen Ji did not know what his junior sister meant, but he could easily tell that she wanted to beat a retreat.

After a slight hesitation, Shen Ji said: “Battalion Commander Zhou, I will definitely check out what you mentioned. If things are as you said, the Peerless Battalion has indeed accomplished an outstanding merit, and I will report up to the higher ranks to award you all. Also, since it is a celebration, last night’s drinking is of no issue. Regiment Commander Shen Bu, lead your men away. Battalion Commander Zhou, I will also take my leave now.”

He did not stay any longer, as he had many things to investigate before reaching a final conclusion. At the same time, he could sense that Shen Bu had something to tell him, and it would be best to leave this place as quickly as possible. Staying here in such a stalemate would also be a loss of face to him if it spread to other Legions.

Zhou Weiqing said passively: “In that case, I will not send you all off. I hope that no other Battalions will intrude in our Peerless Battalion camp, otherwise if something like this happens again, Legion Commander Shen Ji you can’t blame me.”

Shen Ji nodded and said: “I will give the order for the entire Legion to keep their men under control. Farewell.”

Shen Ji led Shen Bu and the other men away, and after they left the Peerless Battalion camp, they heard a loud cheer from behind, as if they had chased away some plague. The Peerless Battalion men’s loud cheers and laughter showed their lack of qualms or inhibitions, causing Shen Bu’s expression to turn ugly once more. If her psyche was any lesser, perhaps she would have been so enraged that she would have vomited blood.

Indeed, the Peerless Battalion soldiers were all extremely excited. Zhou Weiqing had sided with them without hesitation, standing up against an entire Regiment for their sakes, perhaps even against the entire Seventh Legion. Such a Battalion Commander, where else could they find one like him? In that moment, Zhou Weiqing’s standing and prestige in the entire Peerless Battalion was raised to a new maximum, and before he could even speak, the soldiers had swarmed forward to throw him up in the air in celebration, shouting and cheering as they did so.

Shen Ji’s face was extremely overcast, but in order to save Shen Bu’s face, he remained silent until they entered her Sixteenth Regiment main tent. Once her guards had left, he shouted angrily: “Shen Bu, what are you doing? Didn’t I warn you not to provoke that Zhou Weiqing? Why didn’t you listen to me? If he were to actually kill you all today, how could I answer to Master?”

  1. I am seriously getting annoyed by her….

    If it was just a little bit of bullying on her half, I didn’t care… but our MC did nothing wrong in almost all the situations…. at most, he bullied her sister a tiny bit but not enough to really cause problems…

    Thanks for the chapter XD

    1. D: you kidding me.

      He started out by humiliating them. If I do not remember too wrong, he even understood it was a mistake AFTER learning the older one’s status.
      Then he stole from his own side. Think. A commander gets escorted to his unit…. Then he beats up his escort and strips them of their gear. And at last make them walk back basically naked.
      I would be extremely surprised if that that is a “nothing wrong”. And would not get him punished.
      But instead he used more force to beat up even more of his own side, to get more gear. Sure he did not kill anyone, but he still was way in the wrong.

      When they came to deal with him. When they pulled the status card, he was being dealt with for having stepped way past what is ok.

      THIS may be the only case where he has not done something too bad. But there is a good chance non of this would have happen if A: Fatty told them to just get rid of the garbage instead of making trouble like a normal person would. For he knew he was starting shit by the order he gave. He is too smart not to. Probably wanted to do basically what happened for more status.
      B: Instead of telling his men to beat up whoever came… Maybe not his own group but they are still supposed to be his own damn allies. He could have told his men to have him deal with any problems that came to their camp.

      I would like to point out again, that this is something that could have happened in Heavenly Bow Empire with Fatty in her spot. And we would probably be mad at whoever was messing with fatty then too.

      That he is our MC do not make what he do automatically ok. There is a reason they are called what they are. There is a reason the people in his group are hated. They are rapists, murderers and thief’s. People have rather short patience with such trash. Most of Fatty’s group is what you would find in prisons. And him egging up trouble is not at all helping.

      I am just glad he did not make more of a mess for the sisters… or is it sister brother? As I said, I could see this happening the other way around back in the Bow Empire. I kinda expect that the sisters would have at least an half interesting story of their own.
      Then again. Maybe fatty is not wrong about the back door and connections… However most people do not think like he do. >.>

      1. He started out showing off his strength in combat to reach a position of power as is explicitly baked into their army heirarchy. He didn’t know that it was her sister until after the fact, and wouldn’t have done anything to her if she hadn’t gone full out with her fireball and he needed to show some of his true strength. Since then she has constantly made trouble for him, trying to hamfistedly force her/her sister on him or take a derogatory position, even after hearing that he already had someone, and took it as an affront that he didn’t betray his loved one.

        As for beating up his escort and stripping them down, they had been for the longest time denying the Ruffian Battalion its proper rations and gear on her order, and I’m pretty sure there was another point to them ‘escorting’ him, so that was a spot of recompense for her actions.

        He had to beat up ‘his own side’ that already devoted itself to a blood feud with him because they had been denied everything from basic supplies to live on up. All the gear taken from them could be re-requisitioned normally anyways, as gear, food and kit in general would have been for the Ruffian Battalion if not for her bullshittery. The only thing that stopped that was Shen Ji finding out their real identities and going “Enough of your bullshit, it ends here.”; Furthermore, if he wasn’t ruthless, he’d have been f***ed in getting them geared and trained and ready for the scant few years remaining before his father’s time distortion collapses.

        They are not “rapists, murderers, and thieves”, they are *ruffians*. People that bucked the rigid command structure of the army and were cast down from grace for that. Not prison material. They aren’t the scum of the earth. You REALLY need to go back and read again to see just how wrong you are.

        1. Shen Bu gave a cold smile as she said: “The Ruffian Battalion, as the name suggests, are a bunch of ruffians and scoundrels in the army. They are the worst dredges from various Regiments in the north, all the troublemakers, the filthy, and the useless scoundrels. The Ruffian Battalion I speak of is made up of those from within the northwest armies, besides us, the Fourth, Seventh and Eighth Regiments as well, about a thousand in total forming the Battalion. They are stationed closest to the border, with the three Legions behind them as a secondary guard. Once our enemies attack, the Ruffian Battalion is usually the first to meet the enemy. Usually, only those who have committed grievous faults or felonies will be sent there. They do not have sufficient weapons, with the worst tents and food, but facing the fiercest enemies.”

          That is their punishment. They are there for they are criminals who have done horrible things. They do not get gear for they are basicly on death sentence.
          Insted of wasting stuff on them in prison, they are made use of.

          Zhou Weiqing stared at her in shock and bewilderment. “That’s too ruthless! Ruffians are also human! Scoundrels also have human rights!”

          Shen Bu gave a cold laugh: “Of course they do, but you’ll also have to see what crimes they have committed. You have also seen for yourself, our ZhongTian Empire Army does not restrict women from joining. Some of these bastards have committed serious indecent acts against other female soldiers; shouldn’t they be punished? Thieving, shirking, deserters, cheating about their achievements… These are some who are sent to the Ruffian Battalion. In truth, it is already a mercy for some of those to not be executed.”

          Its hinted that they killed their last commander.

          It may not have directly been said there that they raped, but its clearly hinted at. I am rather sure they said strait out there where rapists too somewhere but theres a good few chapters

        2. It is also made very clear by this ~”Black Bear sidled closer to Zhou Weiqing and said in a low voice: “Battalion Commander, that young lady sure is beautiful… shall we… heh heh… if you eat meat, at least let us brothers drink some soup. It’s been a long time…”~

      2. Not exactly, while he did humiliate the little sister a bit, it wasn’t much, and with the older sister, he just beat her in a proper match.

        When he did rob the armor, it was after the other side attacked 1st.

        And in this case, the guys were in the right.

        And yes, this is a group of bad guys (I doubt the majority are rapist and murders with the way they all act – probably more like trouble makers, with a few being actual scum).

        While Fatty did do some mean things, he did them only after her side acted too far 1st.

        And it’s not her actions that piss me off, it’s her complaining about his actions when she’s not so innocent herself.

        1. Wait wait wait… He was not attacked first. They took him to the camp: “Is there anything, Battalion Commander Zhou? I’m afraid it is already too late, you should just stay here honestly.” The leader of the personal guard thought that Zhou Weiqing was afraid, and he said with a look of disdain on his face. Naturally, without any orders, he would not bring Zhou Weiqing back.

          Zhou Weiqing blinked and said: “Afraid? What do I have to be afraid of? What I meant was… you all are a nice greeting present that I have brought to my fellow Battalion comrades and brothers! If you just leave like that, that would not be good at all! Look at all the nice, gleaming gear that you all are wearing, and look at what my brothers are wearing? Heh… whatever you can leave behind, just leave it behind now.”

          Then he robbed more whent they came to get the gear back.
          _____
          I agree, most of them are probably not rapists. And most of them may not have killed, even tho theres a lagre chance a lot of them have. They are not exacly shy about such a thing from what I can tell.

          Shen Bu gave a cold laugh: “Of course they do, but you’ll also have to see what crimes they have committed. You have also seen for yourself, our ZhongTian Empire Army does not restrict women from joining. Some of these bastards have committed serious indecent acts against other female soldiers; shouldn’t they be punished? Thieving, shirking, deserters, cheating about their achievements… These are some who are sent to the Ruffian Battalion. In truth, it is already a mercy for some of those to not be executed.”

          So yea, not all of them have done as bad things as that. A good few of them have.
          _______
          I agree she takes things too far. But she sees all the stuff he is doing. She did not intend for him to stay there as punishment. She hoped he would change his mind and beg to come out after a short time. Basiclay she wanted to humilate him in return.

          I am not saying they are perfect angels or anything. However compare to Fatty, I would say they can probably be said to be realy nice. Apart form Fatty, I doubt they have made life all that hard for anyone. >-> Fatty on the other hand is making trouble all over.

          And I need to make it clear. Its not just that things have happend as they have. It is that Fatty is so smart he basicly have manipulated things to be the way they are. And have been fully able to stop and or change how things have happend.

          For example. The equipment. Was there a need to get it? No it was not. For he got everyone new and better armor anyway. He got them new and better gear without stealing it. There was no need for him to make any of the mess he did exept for status. And if status is so important to him that he is willing to do so, then that should show how big a bite he took when he humilated the girl dragging her status into the mud.

          Status is not easy to gain, but easy to loose. This is why I feel for the sister pair despite how they acted. Or rather Shen Bu. The other sister seemed to not be all that happy punishing him in the first place.

          1. The sisters tried to humiliate him 1st, just cause he was winning. They went against him cause he beat one of their soldiers in an official match and then won against them.

            Considering the situation and how small the matter was, they over reacted against him.

            And the elder sister’s “humiliation” was basically just losing a match.

            And I’m not really saying that Fatty is innocent either… just that she shouldn’t whine and complain when she’s just as, if not more, guilty than she is.

          2. If your sister got her pants ripped off in the street would you not be mad?

            However to say she is just as if not more guilty then fatty. I mean, yea she did that one bad thing by sending him there…

            But I do not really see that she did anything wrong other then that.

            However I may have forgotten some around how they got to fight in the first place.

            Putting new soldiers in their place is not really a bad thing to start with tho. However its hard to show some they should not be overconfident when their skill vastly outclasses your own.

            I guess I just find that Fatty has done a lot more stuffs that effected a lot more people. And that ultimately roots back to him not really caring about the war they are facing. Maybe if these people where fighting for Bow Empire he would be more against stealing from another unit. Or breaking their bones so they can not fight.

          3. He tore the pants, but it didn’t really show much of anything, just a little leg… it was embarrassing because of how it happened, and it was done when he changed a blow that could have hurt her into a bit of embarrassment.

            He actually over all followed the rules when dealing with everything

            And it’s not like he didn’t benefit the army or help out in their war.

            But her real reason for hating Fatty is cause she found Fatty to be a good talented young lad and wanted him to marry her sister, but Fatty refused.

            But again, rather than her going against him, I’m just bothered by her acting like the victim. (And for acting stupid, since if she just left him alone, nothing would happen to her).

          4. I am not sure about that. If he had found out about that battalion, he would still ask to be sendt there do you not think? And I would also think he would still steal the gear. Resulting in the same thing we have now.

            I realy do not think you view this from their side. She said that the embarrassment was so bad she almost wanted to die. Like she almost killed herself. >-> He basically exposed all but her privates.
            And if it was just somthing he did on accident, then that would probably not make a big deal out of it. But he made it clear he did it on purpose. A single cut would have done the job fine, but he shose to expose her for a boost in status.

            I still hold the view that, if he just beat her insted of cutting her cloths to pieces. Then they could have ended up getting along just fine.

            But ultimatly we do agree she is anoying. I am not disagreeing with that. I am simply saying I do understand her and why she ended up doing what she did. And apart from the marry part, I probably would have done more or less the same things she did.

            I would punish him, maybe not as badly as she did but still. For exposing somone as he did for no real reason is just not ok.
            Far less so when you are trying to be a part of an army.

            I would go to get the gear back along with some answers after my men come back naked and robbed.

            I would probably attack when they do not agree to give the things back, seeing it as them rebeling against the army.

            After my men has their arms and legs broken, I would also go to get answers. As we are supposed to be on the same side.
            ________
            >.> Now… wheres the next chapter?

  2. She makes it sound like he’s provoking her! I think it was pretty clear that she’s the one that started it. How stupid can a person get? I’m glad I was wrong about my original assumption that she would join the harem. Unless this is some really drawn out ploy…

    1. D: But he did start it. She is mad not just for him humiliating her. But for stealing her men’s gear. Then stealing even more when she came to get it back. HE has been way in the wrong. To the point where they wanted to deal with him, and only got saved due to his girlfriends status.

      I only see her becoming a part of the harem it it turns out she is a princess. >.> But if she was we would probably know about it by now.

      Anyway. To say SHE started it is just nonsense. She did not even send her men there in the first place did she. They went there on their own when they on their own when they could see the mess. This only ended up as large as it did for Fatty told his people to beat them up.
      Even if there was a rule against going to another units camp… would you as a commander have the people who came over beaten to where their arms and legs where broken? Would that be useful to the army?
      She was first in the wrong to keep the fighting going from there. She should have followed what she was told and left the matter. However, after getting stolen from 2 times. And now having her men get their arms and legs broken. Can you really not see why she would be mad?

        1. It was not that he won. It was that he humilated them on purpose.

          Of course, she knew that Zhou Weiqing had already taken mercy, otherwise a blow that could slice her clothes like that could have easily killed her several times over. However, in her eyes, this was tantamount to killing her; having her clothes sliced into such a midriff-baring attire, it was just such a loss of face.

          The purple clad young lady flicked her wrist, and a robe appeared in her hands, and she quickly covered Shen Yi with it before glaring at Zhou Weiqing as well. “You Scoundrel! How can you cut a girl’s clothes like that?!”

          Zhou Weiqing looked at the two sisters innocently, saying: “I did not want to harm her, and I wanted to win this fight, what else could I do? I had to prove that I won the fight, and furthermore it can let all these brothers here have a short feast of their eyes. In any case, I made sure not to reveal any important positions right?”

          As he said that, he chuckled to himself. However, he soon realised that the atmosphere in the entire Duelling Corner was extremely strange, and not a single person laughed along with him. Zhou Weiqing thought to himself puzzledly: Could it be these soldiers all do not love to cause a scene?
          ____
          So he did not have to do what he did. He humiliated her for no reason, pretending that he had to. He realy just wanted to put on a show and gain status. By exposing her.

          Being angry for such a thing I believe is fair.
          Again, if it was simply that he won, I realy doubt there would be much of a problem at all.

          1. And seeing as she had the status she had, and humilating her sister would be connected to humiliating her. She was in the right to punish him to some degree as humiliating your superior probably is not somthing people in an army can do freely. Sure he did not know, but what he did was clearly still a shitty thing to do.

            Like dragging down the pants of somone in school or at work.

          2. So pointless, when it’s already clear he held back. What on earth is your point anyway? You want to see the main character as a scoundrel? That’s only been emphasized from CHAPTER ONE, your holiness.

            Allow me to recommend a story whose MC fits your complaints – NARUTO. have fun.

          3. You can not just ignore that he stripped her for no reason. Sure he held back. But if I beat you and take your stuff I also hold back.
            It do not make what he did ok.

            And yes, its pointed out form chapter 1. So I do not understand why people pretend what he is doing is ok. That he has no blame.

            So the other characters in the story should just be ok with whatever bullshit Fatty pulls… for it was made clear he was a scoundrel from chapter 1?
            More or less anyone can say they held back. But as he joined their army, he was on their side. So despite holding back, humiliating someone the way he did, simply is not something you can expect the other people in the story to ignore.

            If he wanted too, then he would have held back and simply made a cut at a spot that would have killed. He himself said he did it to put on a show.

            I do not care if it is the main character. I am not even against him doing it. But people are complaining that the sisters got mad at him. While from inside the story he fully deserve them being mad at him.

            I have no idea why you are pointing to naruto… when did he ever strip anyone. When did he steal their stuff? Have his group break the bones of his fellow soldiers while a war was just around the corner?

            And you blabber of some “your holiness” for I am pointing out how I see what happened in the story. Things it to me seems like others ignore..
            I also find it funny you say that…. while your name is Light-syde… Or Light Side with a bit of fantasy.

            I really do not mind if Fatty went around raping and murdering people. My problem is if people say… “why are they mad at him” after he kills their whole village or rapes their friends.
            Or in this case humiliates their sister. You may not see that being a big deal. But they clearly did.

  3. Truly dumb Shen Bu. Totally got her captaincy through back channels and connections. She had one job, “Don’t antagonize MC!”
    Is that truly so hard to do, you dumb woman?

    1. He do it himself… he know he is not a nice honest dude. D: He stole from her unit… 2 times. Then he had his men beat her men up. Even if another group of the army where not supposed to be there, beating them up so they will be unable to fight is not very useful is it? HE knew what he started. And was only mad that one of his men was almost killed. Other then that, he probably planned this to gain more status in his group.

      I am not sure if the back channels and connections is true. It may just be an insult. Few would think in the lines of fatty.
      That he is the MC do not make what he is doing ok, when what he has been doing is clearly wrong.

      Its like in borderlands 2. Played the whole game feeling like the hero… Finding the dude who called himself the hero to be silly. (For I am the hero) Then look back to see that I killed a bunch of people for this girl did not want to be with a dude, even tried to flee to get away from him… and I went and killed her and her friends. D:
      Looking back… was I the bad guy?
