After reading Ch447, using the words from one of our tieba users, Kanki seems much more normal than his men.
From one of the panels of Ch447, it was mentioned that “Our boss either defeated or persuaded them(to join his army)”, I understand that when it comes to talent recruitment, Kanki follows a certain set of rules.
An army will always require and hunger for talents to join. It is through these talents that an army will have the advantage in battle and every aspect of a battle depends on these talents. This is what we call the efficiency of execution and completion of mission.
The need of talents can be found in all occasions. For examples, when Ousen fought with Renpa, he manage to corner one of Renpa’s 4 Heavenly Kings, one of the Ten Bows of Central Plains, Kouen. He gave him pressure and tried to force him to join the Ousen army.
There are 2 kinds of talents.
The first is the talent already hidden within the army. This require extensive search on potential targets, investment of money and time to develop their talents. The advantage of this is the talent’s utmost loyalty. The disadvantage is the huge amount of time and money investment and the possibility of failure in the case that you picked the wrong person. Examples include Denyuu and Ryuusen, these 2 guys with monstrous strength, who worked their way up the ranks from a 5-man squad leader.
The second type of talent is the “hired” talent. As the name suggests, they are hired from somewhere else. The advantage of his kind of talent is that there is no need to spend the limited resources to train them as they can immediately be assigned to their post. The disadvantage is the lack of knowledge to their background as well as the relatively low loyalty. If they can join you, they can also betray you and join the enemies.
Zenou from the Zenou clan is this kind of talent. Hard to control and has mediocre loyalty. However, he is very useful in battle, else Kanki would not have came with just a deputy to look for Zenou. Kanki sees the problem with Shin’s battlefield and thus sent Zenou to turn the tides of war.
P1: I noticed Kanki’s style of fighting in Chapter 300.
P2: Against the coalition of Yan, Han, Zhao, Chu and Wei, Kanki only brought 400 men into the battlefield of 150000 enemies and killed the Han commander-in-chief, Seikai, with the dying Choutou. Around chapter 300+, only 3 characters appeared.
P3: The first is Raido. He did not perform much in that arc but became the vanguard for his arc at Ch447. This shows that he is not an ordinary general.
P4: Next is Hei Yin(the female general). She has the guts to join Kanki’s dive into the 150000 enemy siege, meaning that she is not an ordinary general too. She might even like Kanki in some sense.
P5: Next is Ogeki. He is an interesting man in battle. Brave, and yet comical. His existence added some flavor to the coalition arc.
