My thoughts on this chapter:
Well, folks, it seems that we're back to Second Balbadd Arc. Which was the arc that was happening before we jumped to Alma Torran Arc.
This chapter has gotten me greatly confused. This sudden turn of events seems to have caused the motives of people to get a little jumbled. After Aladdin told the story of Alma Torran, it's become evident that Al Thamen, and specifically Arba, has become a common enemy to all of the Empires.
But what we don't know is how Kouen and his troops are going to react to Hakuryuu supposedly murdering the Kou Empress. Logically, they should be glad that she's gone now instead of calling Hakuryuu a rebel.
Kouen, himself, was never fond of his stepmother, so the only explanation to his alarming reaction to the situation I can think of is that he is not necessarily anxious because Arba died, but because he fears that Hakuryuu would take his position. His reaction is purely based on his fear of losing his political power in Kou, because it seems that Kou is facing domestic problems because of this.
And if you see the two dudes standing by Hakuryuu's side (scroll above to see the picture again), that's the left and the right generals of Kouen Ren. I don't know how he did it, but it looks like Hakuryuu is gaining political power and it's completely justifiable for Kouen to get paranoid at this point.
I'm also curious to know what Hakuryuu is trying to get out of all of this. Honestly, I really, really, really hope Hakuryuu is pulling some stunt for an ultimate good cause. Or maybe it's a misunderstanding like the time Alibaba seemed evil when he went back to Balbadd. If he's getting manipulated by Judar somehow, that would really disappoint me.
I still don't believe that Arba is dead, although, I do believe that Hakuryuu thinks he's killed her. Out of everyone, he would have the greatest motive to kill her, since he hated his mother for being a cunt and even said several times that he wanted to kill her.
There was also the time when Hakuryuu beheaded the Umm Madaura, the "mother" of the pirates crew, because she reminded him so much of Gyokuen. In this chapter, Olba and his crew reminded us of the time when that had happened, so I wouldn't say that Hakuryuu killing his mother is surprising at all.
But most of all, I am quite surprised by Judar. What in god's hell does Judar want with Hakuryuu? I would say that Hakuryuu is an easy target for him given Hakuryuu's hatred for Gyokuen, which makes it so much easier to make him fall in to depravity. Judar also worships chaos, and I can see why he would choose Hakurryuu as his King Vessel, but I think we have come to that point in this manga that this guy has got to have an ultimate goal than to just do it for his own enjoyment.
|For Yunan and the Finalis.|
|Hakuryuu, you look like David, and that does not comfort me.|
Also, she now has an ask.fm and tumblr. Here's your chance to harass her.Micha likes to broadcast her terrible drawing skills to the world on her DeviantArt account and talks about her life long ambition of making Yakushi Kabuto a woman, on her Skype; michasucks. Yes, with the dot. She will also respond to e-mails on her firstname.lastname@example.org because Amber forces her to.
