Western Zhao Invasion Arc Edit

Great General Ri Boku of the three great heavens requested Ko Chou to move towards the region of Koku You. So that they can repel the invading Qin army with all the strength they have. King Tou Jou seems to be undisturbed by these dire news, while Kaku Kai keeps telling the desperate Ko Shuu to not disturb the king. Actually, Kaku Kai was angry due to Ri Boku's actions, regarding of Qin army's changed directions and regarding of Gyou and Kantan military defenses.


Before the story line of the Kingdom manga Edit

Ei Sei, the Queen Mother and Shi So were prisoners in the capital. They were hated by the citizens due to the incident in Chouhei; thus Ei Sei was traumatized by the hate of all Zhao denizens and by his mother's hatred. Ei Sei lived there for nine years before he was rescued by Shi Ka and started living in Qin.
