Kingdom Chapter 3
In the Qin nation of ancient western China, Shin, a young man, orphan, and leader of a 1000-man battalion dreams of becoming the greatest general in the world. As the imperial capital is embroiled in a coup de tat, Shin pursues his dream via a chance encounter with Eisei, the current ruler of the Qin. Shin puts his life at risk on the battlefield in part to achieve Eisei's goal of a "Unified China." Getting over the death of Ou Ki, who lay sprawled along the battlefield, Mo Tan, Oh On, and other generals from that generation continue to work hard. Meanwhile, Shin climbs up the ranks towards his dream of military supremacy. Eisei, also possessing a grand plan, is pouring effort into spreading his authority across the palace as a means to regain political legitimacy from Minister Ryo Fui. During this time, the Qin army is successful in obtaining a key military position at Sanyou, which represents a major step forward in the mission to unify China. However, this possible re-drawing of the political map of China's 7 nations is taken as a crisis for Ri Boku, one of the Zhou nation's most gifted generals. Ri Boku, under the banner of So Nation chancellor Shun Shin Kun, gathered the 6 remaining nations, the So, Zhou, Wei, En, Kan, and Zai, for a coordinated assault on the Qin! During this unprecedented crisis, the Qin gathered all of its military might to ward off the attacking 6 nations!
