Kingdom Chapter 548

Surprise midday release.

edit: Forgot to create DDL links… Will do it next weekend unless I forget again.

Copy pasted from a reply in the comments:

What I’m going to do going forward is set up a dropbox where I stick the raw images that aren’t renamed etc. if they really want to download them for some reason.

Update: here’s the link. I’ve also put it on the DDL page.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/etgzn1ay84ma514/AACL3UH58DaeBIth5c2hh_qYa?dl=0

If anyone wants to help bundle them up for me, let me know either here or via email.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Irfanview for batch renaming the files
  • 7zip for zipping up the files
  • A Mega or Mediafire account
  • Skype or Discord for yelling at me because i forgot to give you the files.
  • Willingness to spend 5-30 minutes a week (depending on your internet speed) doing a tedious task so asshats can get off your back for something they could do themselves.

    Thanks for the chapter!

    Great art on all the pages

      Page 5 bottom right panel same as page 6 top panel? Publisher ops?

      Finally figured out Kyoukai’s strategy. When two forces of equal skill but uneven numbers clash in a straight line, it’s a fight in favor of the force with higher numbers. However, if the force with higher numbers is allowed to ‘bulge’ into the smaller force, and then held there, the bulge will be under attack by three sides. The cost is that the two anchor points can each be attacked by two sides, which is why Kyoukai is making the anchor points all cavalry (heavier armor and usually stronger fighters). The risk of course is that they will be unable to stop the expansion of the bulge, leading to the anchor points being completely surrounded. Kyoukai’s gamble here therefore is letting the enemy expand into a bulge and then stopping that expansion at the right size, creating a massive kill zone.

      See image below for the shape of two unequally sized forces in a formation that favors the smaller force.

      • Geroprog

        Seems legitimate . Thanks for the useful strategy information.

      • ivo

        Yup, in Starcraft 2 (competitive strategy game) in large battles it’s always important to have better concave over the enemy forces.

        This image pretty much shows how a smaller force with better concave can beat larger force due to focus fire and more units actually being in combat opposed to other side that has ‘inactive’ manpower behind the main lines.

        • Guess

          Units in combat doesn’t really apply in Kingdom though, because the lines are so long. The percentage of advantage from the math becomes insignificant when the radius increases.

          Spoilers are out for next chapter, can’t wait

  8. Anotherkingdomfan

    F5

  12. noddl

    I’m going to read it at mangafox because there isn’t DDL here anymore and it’s a waste of time checking this site for a DDL for months.

    • noddl

      And don’t reply to me I’m not going to check this post and site anymore.

      • Osi

        NOOOOOOOOOooooOOOOO

        Oshit! Gongetraped!!! Do SOMETHING, Dudes! Noddl is going to get his free kingdom shit from some other sight! You’ll lose EVERYTHING!

        Oh wait. lol. You won’t lose anything. And now that I think of it, you probably don’t care at all and this guy’s a prat.

        Thanks for doing all this, from those of us who aren’t prats

      • lol ok.

        Btw, I didn’t make this post or I would have mentioned that I forgot.

        For anyone that’s interested. What I’m going to do is set up a dropbox where I stick the raw images that aren’t renamed etc. if they really want to download them for some reason.

        If anyone wants to help bundle them up for me, let me know either here or via email.

        Here’s what you’ll need:
        * Irfanview for batch renaming the files

          First, thanks for all your work, I am a great fan of the quality of your translations.

          Second I have looked at the dropbox link and all files are ahead numbered, so I don’t really get what you need help doing, but as a programmer I can say for sure that we could do a script to do this, so let me know if you have interest in some code to do the boring work.
          (Sorry for any misspell)

          And thank you again for all the work.

          • Pages are numbered with volume, chapter and page number in the volume. e.g. Kingdom_v49_c534_183.png. That way, all files can be automatically unzipped into a single folder for viewing without filenames colliding.

            I’m a programmer as well (mostly Java backends and js frontends). Irfanview already does automatic batch renaming. Your script would have to check image size for double page spreads and number the volumes and pages based on previous chapters otherwise it’s pointless.

            The renaming actually doesn’t take time. It’s the fact that Australian internet sucks balls and most of the country is capped uploading at 90-100KB/s (ADSL2+). That’s why I said it depends on your internet speed.

            It takes me roughly 20 minutes to upload just 1 chapter of manga which also screws over me wanting to do anything on the internet at all during that time. If I had fibre, I’d be more than happy to churn them out.

        • Guilherme

          Well, I can’t reply in your last comment. I know the pain, I am from Brasil and a few year ago I spent almost 17 years using ADSL with a upload speed of 40 kbs. Now fiber finally got to my town and I have 20 mb of upload (a speed of 2mbs). So if you still need someone to do the upload stuff contact me via email. I am a linux user so I will use a script or a alternative program to bach rename.

    • Junjiro

      shilling for mangafox?

      so much LOL

    • letouriste

      if that’ ddl you want you just need to come once each few months,that’s not like there much new chapters

  13. Junjiro

    oh turnips, thank you turnips!

    • Junjiro

      more suu gen (or any hi shin 100 originals other than en-san) making speeches please!

      • Osi

        I think and hope that’s where Kingdom is going… I really think this is the template for The Hi Shin Army under General Shin.

        Shin will lead from the front and do instinctual general stuff, and will go for the opposing general as soon as he can, because meanwhile,

        Ten will be doing strategy stuff in her awesome strategy tent with those nameless strategy guys, and

        Kyoukai will either be wherever she needs to be to tip the battle.

        I can’t decide if it’s like a two-headed dragon or a three-headed dragon. Maybe Shin+Ten= one dragon head, as she has no ‘body’ and he has no ‘brain’

        Ok yeah, they’re like a two-headed dragon

        • Osi

          Crap I forgot my point there. My point is, when its the Hi Shin Army, and those three are doing all that, everyone else will get a bigger roll too. Right now, because they’re still a ‘unit,’ we also have to see what Ousen and Mouten and Ouhon are up to. Soon, that’ll be Ten and Kyoukai and Shuugen and Kanto.

  14. letouriste

    thanks for the chapter:)
    i had eminem songs during the whole chapter,surprisingly fitting(stuff like survival and berserk)

  15. Bon Jour

  20. Aie Rizal

    thanx alot for the release.. its about time for the new hi shin members to know why Kyokai is 2nd in command

  21. That was an amazing chapter, thank you very muchhhhH!!!!!!!!!! = D

  22. Gohoumei

    Was there ever a scene where adult kyou kai did her ton dance? last i remember her do that dance is when she finally got her revenge before going back to hi shin unit and at that time she was still a kid

    • Michiru

      Yeah she is, because she went too deep last time she use the dance…

    • Osi

      When (ironically) one of the fire dragons of Wei’s lieutenants, Junsou, kidnaps Ten, Kyoukai goes into the dance to catch him, to force a prisoner exchange.

      • Michiru

        Really? I didn’t saw she used dance that time. She just used stealth skill. Already reread that chapter…

        • ivo

          She is always in dance mode when fighting, she just doesn’t go very deep cause she don’t need to and it’s more important to actually have longer endurance.

          When capturing Junsou she goes deeper (veins poping in legs) in order to capture him.

          But yeah, it’s been a while since she’s been pushed to da limits.

  23. Michiru

    Really? I didn’t saw she used dance that time. She just used stealth skill. Already reread that chapter…

    • Osi

      Matter of interpretation I guess. One of her guys asks her about her breathing, the panels all go black, and her calf, that she hurt in the battle avenging her sister, starts straining. Also… she has a “stealth skill?” Meaning… what?

      Personally I think her “stealth skill” is just a shallow priestess dance.

  24. Insomnium

    Hi TF, do you guys have any plan to resume Ad Astra? I totally forgot about the series until yesterday ;_;

    • From the FAQ (though not frequently asked any more):

      Q. Have you dropped Ad Astra?

      Yes. If anyone’s interested in continuing scanlating Ad Astra, contact our email for free digital scans up to vol 8.

      As to why we dropped it, lack of time / force of will to continue.

  25. chyll2

    F5 advance army

  26. Schaid

    Spoiler is out. Crazy kyoukai. I think the raw is coming today. And tomorrow the chapter will release.
