Raido sees Kochou walk in and thinks to himself that he is the Zhao Commander Kochou. Kochou says it appears Raido has killed his left commander's son and using his body he has also killed the left commander and asks if that's correct. Raido yes it's correct and asks "what's wrong with that considering the left commander was an idiot?" The eldest son and his soldier are furious at Raido's response. Kochou says since the left commander has been with him for a long time he is basically family and he can understand how his actual family may feel. However, considering their positions Kochou says Raido did a great job and he would've done the same if he were in Raido's shoes. However, since his soldiers are watching he must provide punishment and says he'll take a finger. The choice of which side is up to Raido. Raido says left and Kochou tells his soldiers to cut it off.
After the first finger from each of Raido's group they proceed to cut off the rest of the fingers. Next Kochou says he must punish him for the amount of his people Raido has murdered and says he'll take an arm. He asks Raido which side and Raido catches on to his game. After a series of different tortures Raido's soldiers ask to just be killed. Raido calls them perverted bastards and to hurry up and kill them if they're going to.
Kochou says he has held out well and that this will be the last one. He asks Raido if he's caught on that he has received a less harse treatment. The others will surely die after this even if they don't do anything anymore but Raido can still live, that he's able to go back and hold the woman he loves even. But before he goes Kochou asks him one more question: what is Kanki up to? After looking into Raido's eyes he realizes Kanki actually has some sort of plan. He has heard that Kanki has a good head and his battles up to know show just that. However, for whatever reason, Kanki has started this hopeless battle. Though defeat is certain, the fact that this is so certain is bothering him. He asks again if Kanki is up to something. He tells Raido he is free to speak up about it because whether he tells them or not they will win this battle. But they want to minimize their losses so they want to learn Kanki's plan. Kanki will die in this battle no matter what but Raido can live.
Raido hears all this and tells him to shut up. He knows that he can say anything here and won't have a reason to be bothered by it. They're a band of bandits so things like loyalty and honor don't exist. Betrayal is common. That is the Kanki army. If Kanki was there he would probably call him an idiot and tell him to hurry and tell them the plan because Kanki is that kind of man. Because of that Raido refuses to tell Kochou anything. Kochou's soldiers wonder if they pushed him too much and made him lose his mind or if he needs more torture. Raido says it doesn't matter what they do since he's seen all the things the Saki clan has done so nothing they can do will scare him.
Raido thinks to himself that they've just done terrible things all this time. If someone was hungry they'd eat the person next to them. He wonders what he's saying to himself now. Kochou says he's just rambling and says they can't understand their intentions this way. Raido says he's an idiot and that he never expected any sort of affirmations. The eldest son calls him trash and Raido says yeah he's a fucking bastard and their commander Kanki is the most fucking bastard there is. Even after pulling all of them from the trashheap he's still thirsty for more and he will...(Raido stops there)
Kochou's soldier says there's no point in talking to him any longer while Raido thinks to himself that for a second he feels like he understood Kanki just a little bit. Kochou says this is now a waste of time and to torture Raido to his death and makes the eldest son the lead commander of the left wing. Raido realizes something and wishes he could've spoken to Kanki one more time.
Marron and Kokuou senses something but when their soldiers ask what's wrong they say it's nothing.
No break notice from Hara but apparently there's a WYJ break next week.
Props to Raido for taking the torture like a champ and not talking at all (not that he knows anything anyway).
This also shows how brutal Kanki's men are because Raido basically thinking that he'd rather die here than being tortured by his own side if he gets caught after betraying them.
Yeah these stats are just completely wrong lol. I don’t even care if Hara is the writer or if this is his series or whatever, I would tell him to his face that he needs to stop drinking when writing these lol.
No one will ever convince me that Rokuomi is stronger than Akou or Hakuki.
Or that Rankai is at motherfucking 99 strength, the same as Coalition Moubu and Kanmei and above 97 Man’U, just what the fuck lol.
Futei also at 91 is horribly wrong, this motherfucker is apparently Akou level when brutally wounded Ouhon dispatched him easily.
Hara’s stats are always wrong, but these stats are especially horrible lol.
