Kingdom Chapter 626 Raw Scans Korean Spoilers
The HSU side sees that Houken is faltering to the point of touching his knee to the ground. The Zhao side sees Shin reaching the limits of his strength. Lights starts to surround Shin and Shin starts talking to them.
Shin: Ah, it’s alright, I can still keep going. I can keep fighting…Hyou. Ah, I know. I can smell it from your side…the smell of alcohol…that’s probably Duke Hyou..hehe…the smell of the fields…is that Bitou? Hehe…there’s even more outside of that. I got it. That thing that smells like a big flower spreading is General Ouki…I know it. Everyone…is lending me their strength, I know that very well Hyou. But Houken doesn’t have any of that. If he doesn’t have that then Houken’s blade can only wound. It has no weight. Nothing’s changed since the last time we fought. HOUKEN YOUR BLADE HAS NO WEIGHT. -Gets hit- I…told you…it won’t work…
Houken: Enough of your chatter. Again and again the same thing. You are the ones who were originally wrong. The chains that shackles humans to their limits. My blade is one that cuts those dark chains away. I am Houken. I am a “Bushin”
Riboku: No. If Houken truly was the Bushin he’s saying he is then he would’ve been at the end of his path 7 years ago against Ouki. Even when he lost his arm to Duke Hyou during the coalition war, or getting stabbed in the leg in our right wing, it shouldn’t have happened. To him who reached the end of his path and still couldn’t see it Duke Hyou called him a gigantic buffoon. It was at the end of this path that Houken should’ve seen the “answer.” Houken, a person who has reached the peak of martial prowess and tried to show it to the heavens. And the reality that a person who gained the strength of others couldn’t be beaten by that same strength. It just means that no matter how hard a person may try to overcome the boundaries of human life humans are meant to be humans. That is the “answer” the heavens have given him.
Kaine: Riboku-sama…then…does that mean Houken-sama will lose to Shin of the HSU?
Riboku: No. I never said anything about him losing Kaine.
Bihei: Kyoukai?! Kyoukai you’re finally awake. Thank heavens. D..do you see Kyoukai? Shin is…Shin is standing strong.
Karyoten: I..I think I have to go after all. I have to go to Shin.
Naki: Karyo ten?! Why are you like this all of a sudden? Stay here…if even you go to where Shin is then 10,000 to 1 the HSU won’t be able to move.
Karyoten: I…I know but…I have to go to Shin…something’s…wrong…something’s felt off since awhile ago…sorry, but Naki you come too. S..Shin is…
Riboku: There’s no doubt there is a contradiction within Houken. The ones who challenged Houken who tried to overcome his limits wholeheartedly saying “you’re wrong” are Ouki and Duke Hyou and Shin. But, even so, they were just words said wholeheartedly. Yes…back then against Ouki and Duke Hyou they said “you’re wrong” and fought to their last breath, both inevitibly falling to Houken’s blade in the end.
