Soldier A shouts that there is definitely a trick to this for he personally seen numerous of his comrades being cut down to their internal organs, cut into pieces [/fell apart] then die, so how can possibly be there this complete nonsense. “It is completely impossible for this to happen!!!” And, soldier A cuts off Zeno’s right arm. Zeno is unfazed over his severed arm falling down on the ground. Soldier A holds up his sword again and tells him to look, he is going to slice and dice him. While bleeding profusely, Zeno tells stunned Yona that he’ll borrow her sword [since she isn’t using it anyway]. And, soldier A cut off Zeno other arm. So, while Zeno is now spraying blood from whatever is left of both arms, soldier A nervously says this way.. And he didn’t notice that there is an arm with the sword above him. Trembling in fear, soldier B tries to call his attention. When soldier A turns around, he can only scream as the sword plunges into his heart. Zeno bites his teeth as Yona and Yun look aghast. Soldier B mutters that the arm moved and stabbed him.
As the arm pulled up the sword, Zeno says that if he feels that he’s very scary, then, is it possible that they just return home. As his severed arm with the sword re-attaches to his body, Zeno says that it is because his power isn’t enough so he cannot be lenient with them. “If you men want to harm girl-chan, then, I will kill you people.” Soldier B calls out to the others as to who will come and kill this monster. Haku and the others are surprised and tense over it. The other soldiers start charging towards Zeno. Yona nervously calls out to Zeno who smiles back at her then he rushes towards the charging soldiers on horses. Soldier C tensely asks what that is. He sees Zeno’s other arm re-attaches on Zeno. That is enough to strike fear in soldier C’s heart as Zeno charges, jumps and stabs him in the chest. After Zeno lands, soldier D slashes him by the face. As his head band falls off, Zeno stares at the soldier. Soldier D freaks out over the slashed part immediately healing.
Then, a few more soldiers stab Zeno through the chest. One of them shouts for him to die. Horrified Yona shouts, stop. And the guys are shock to see Zeno’s head flying off after the soldier lops it off. The head falls down on the floor. Zeno’s body collapses. The nervous soldiers ask if he is dead this time around, the head is chopped off, and no matter what is said, he should be dead. And, they are horrified when Zeno’s hand starts to scratch on the ground. They scream in horror as Zeno stands up and his head re-attaches to his body. They asks in the end, what is that thing, why can he still move, why is he still alive!? Zeno tells them that it isn’t easy to encounter [everyone] so, no matter how many times they cut him down, he will properly protect everyone. He charges at them that the terrified soldier shouts for him not to come over. The soldier tries to cut Zeno’s head but he couldn’t cut him down.
As dragon scales are appearing on Zeno’s skin, Zeno tells them that they already couldn’t cut him down. He reaches his hand on the terrified soldier’s face and slams his head down on the ground. The impact was so strong that the soldier’s helmet has shattered and he has gone unconscious [/died]. Then, another soldier tries to slash Zeno again, but Zeno grabs the sword with his bare hand and snaps the sword into two. Then, Zeno gives him a vicious kick on the gut. That is enough to freak out the soldiers around him to start running away, [which isn’t surprising since they are cowards after all who tend to pick on the easy preys.] While Haku is surprised by the sight, some soldiers on horses ask what’s going on. Kija calls out to Zeno. The soldier says that monster is rushing toward this side. To his surprise, Zeno jumps up and lands down on him. The soldier fell from his horse because of the impact. After landing near Kija, Zeno happily asks if everyone is still okay. Somewhat stunned Kija mutters his name. Zeno says that’s very good, for it looks like they are still alive. Kija says that he..actually..
Zeno says that as long as he wasn’t attacked, he is just a burden who completely lack in strength but, each time he regenerates, this body will change into steel. “Right now.. similar with that power of the White Dragon, and the Green Dragon’s jump [and] kick, I can do them.” Towards the terrified Kai soldiers, Zeno asks how about it. “Unlike you people, I’m infinite, so much so that I can fight for several hundreds of years. *looking serious* Come, I have a lot of time.” Yona and Yun are surprised to see the soldiers dispersing. Yun says that they are retreating. Yona calls out to Zeno as she and Yun go towards his direction. Zeno picks up his medallion and looks at it. [<- does it look like it disintegrated? Used to seal his true power?] Yona calls out to him. Zeno asks if she is alright. To his surprise, Yona, Kija, Shina and Yun give him a tight group hug. He tells them that they are still injured. Upon seeing Yona crying, Zeno’s expression softens and says that it is alright, he is still alive. With Ao the squirrel is on his head and the others continue to hug him except for Haku and Jeha who just watch on, Zeno happily smiles and says that everyone is so cute.
Comment: Well, that was good ^^ We didn’t get to see any Suwon saving them. Zeno turns out to be a ‘trump card’ that their enemies shouldn’t mess with. Thankfully, he turns out to be very powerful than he seems. It ought to be really scary to see a zombie/immortal during ancient feudal Asian times. I’m glad that he isn’t just a human shield and he learned ‘martial arts’ that he can already copy White and Green dragon’s fighting skills. Actually, most likely, his whole body is of a ‘dragon’ whereas for the other two, it is just their limbs..maybe Zeno just do not have the natural power so he probably trained all those years? Or it is only activated after being slashed-regenerate so many times? If he got to learn Blue dragon, then he’ll be 3 dragons in one. I guess being an immortal, he tries to be lenient with the enemies because they only have a short fragile life. As he mentioned, he cannot be lenient with them here since the others’ lives are dependent on him. He has to be able to protect them now that they are in a huge disadvantage. Anyhow, somehow I kept on thinking of possible jokes about this now that they know Zeno’s power. I think they can use part of Zeno to scare off people..but then, after being chopped into pieces, he seems to be un-choppable now so, is that permanent? His ‘happy demeanor’ can also throw off enemies and make them belittle him so maybe pull off what Suwon was doing with ‘I look cute, nice and a weakling, but when you let your guard down, I’ll bite ya’.
The blood bath continued here and now, it has severed limbs and head. It is quite brutal and so shounen that I wonder if purely romantic shoujo readers are shock by the scenes here [edit: since this is rarely shown in shoujo]. Zeno, doesn’t that hurt at all? Well, the Kai soldiers have a nightmare to bring back home. They’ll probably not mess with Kouka anymore though I’m not sure if they will associate them with Kouka. Still the stories would be enough to put fear and lower their morale as well as the other soldiers especially since there are many witnesses. They might not go into war anytime soon. I’m wondering though of the possibility that the soldiers will meet up with Suwon and others, and then Suwon would get to learn about Yona and her super strong gang. If I remember correctly, Suwon only knows that Haku is the one who is super strong in her group though I’m not sure how much he saw when they are fighting against the Fire tribe. It is debatable though if Suwon would start thinking of Yona as a threat who should be eliminated since she has the capability to ‘destroy’ him and his plans if she wanted to. Well, the key word is ‘if she wanted to’..or else, they just mind each other’s business. ^^; Yona and the others would most definitely go back to Kouka where their powers are in its fullest potential + no one getting sick.
