Hills of Silver Ruins (4/35)

I borrowed a line from "The Charge of the Light Brigade" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, his 1854 poem about the disastrous British cavalry charge against a heavily defended Russian artillery battery during the Battle of Balaklava.

Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Kirin are susceptible to two potentially lethal diseases. The shitsudou (失道) is caused by imperial wrongdoing, especially involving violations of the Divine Decrees. The esui (穢瘁) results from the kirin's own actions, often from being exposed to blood in the environment or his diet.

OH MY GOSHHH how the turn tables!!! 🔥🔥 Im so happy Taiki got to change back into a kirin again 😭 i was really hoping all this time that he'll eventually get to recover his horn in one way or another! Now we can see taiki more in his kirin form 🥳
Now if only sanshi and gouran could come back too 🥺
The scenes with the reinforcements suddenly coming from all sides, and the black flags lining up their path were so epic too!! Im super excited to see how it all unfolds!!

I agree. If only Sanshi and Gouran sense his return to full Kirin form and are still his shirei.

Thanks for the chapter.
Apt poem about Asen's soldiers. I see a bloody war unless a majority of Asen's retainers desert him for the rightful owner of the throne
