To me, it Looks like Shin crew are getting the acknowledgement. So Shin is sacrificed first for not being cool.
- Kyoukai begin to looks like a beast general.
- Kyourei should make her position as kyoukai's lieutenant,
- Archer bro on spot, moving up to the dad prestige
- Garou make himself shine,
- Naki is the wild card... He seems to be farther than 1000-man commander, he may shine againts 5000-man commander/general.
- Karyo Ten will begin to move the army in certain way.
In order to be 30.000 army Next time (40.000 if included Kyoukais), there must appear some general candidate.
Shin will look cool after that, for having 1 general candidate, better strategist, several thousands-man commander, and detach General-&-the lieutenant.
