    Spoiler:
    Light? :huh
    I could see hope as the thing, but light... well i suppose i'll learn more next chapter, he'll probably talk about fire, warmth, the sun etc.

    Ryu Fui is right to a certain degree that humans will always war, you can never eliminate war, it is human nature. If there is no war then there is no change and if there is no change then there is only death.

    Lame. First time I've been properly disappointed by a Kingdom chapter that I can recall.. If Sei is supposed to be this inspirational king, he should be able to say something better than a shonen cliche involving light.

    Think this whole conversation might be a wrong choice of the author. Doubt there were many noble aspirations behind conquering China. Noble aspirations tend not to be aspirations of the people who actually conquer after all. Hard to avoid such a central theme of the manga though, but there's limits to how noble a conqueror should be made to seem. A realist would be better than an idealist IMO, cause there can be nothing ideal about such a massive war campaign.

    Well, it's hard to counter Ryofui's argument with rationality so...

    "Please don't talk too generally"
    "Human nature is light"
    :lmao

    ill wait for judgement on sei seeing the light in human nature till he done.

    what bothers me much more is the purple lights collecting about him. the fuckin flying fuck? the wei ghosts shin faced were already borderline but this? idk, why is it he has to dab into mystery shit once every 250 chapters? just dont go there :smh

    Well, I mean this is a story where the explanation for a dude whith his toothpick flattening an army is:'Lolz, I be possessed By God. Gonna go all Calamity and Heaven on you now.'

    And it was pretty much implied to be real, I mean the fucker could sense Shin and Ouki across the battlefield. Also Kyokai's ability is clearly magical in nature and not just pure martial arts.

    So as far as I am concerned, I am reading a magical Fantasy story where the magical elements are purposefully vague and subdued (more like LOTR than Harry Potter)

    So, Sei mistaking his evil conqueror ancestors for 'Lights' and leading humanity into war while being possesed by their vice is weird but borderline okay-ish with me.

    Sei could have said better, but he's pretty much saying that he will try to bring out the good side of human kind rather then this negative greed filled one that Ryo is so accustomed to.

    I admit I lol'd hard last chapter when the light around him was like "Bitch please" after that long rational speech Ryo gave. And the fact that Sei didn't give an awesome counter like I thought he would made me laugh even harder. Those little lights must be ashamed. :nonon

    I get what Sei is saying, but I really thought he was going to whip a keyblade out at the end of the chapter. :lmao

    Ryo Fui: (gives reasons and examples for his world view). So what is your reasoning, your Majesty?

    Sei: Human nature is light!

    Ryo Fui: I see, but what is this light exactly?

    Sei: It is the will that drives away the darkness!

    Ryo Fui: But how exactly?

    Princess: Can't you see the pretty lights. So pretty!

    Ryo Fui: . . .
