Scanlation is already up at hisazuki’s tumblr.
At first, I was excited since Kija showed off his hand and the generals are all uptight. Then, it went down the drain because Suwon is totally cool about it and supposedly giving off an aura of ‘I’m not your enemy/I’m not the antagonist of the story so go look elsewhere’. Suwon gets points from the dragons for not being scared or laughing at them. Suwon said that he doesn’t need the power of the gods and it is all about the people to make the country strong blah..blah. Okay, so it makes me think that’s right so what’s the point of the story? He is basically saying that Yona and the dragons are useless/unnecessary in the grand scheme of things..and he is right. They are just going around the country and doing small scale things to help the people who just so happen to be in need of their help when they are passing through..most of the time.
Perhaps, Yona should just let the dragons get their final rest and stop passing over their powers to the next generation. Maybe that prophecy thing is a fluke =P Oh well, perhaps, it is still not the time for it..until some real villain appears? I don’t know why Suwon only figured it out now that Lili isn’t in the fort. I guess he thought Haku lied/kept it from him when they were ‘talking’ last night. It was obvious that Lili wasn’t there since even if Haku hates him and everything, if it is for a good cause, Haku will grudgingly help. So, overall, Haku is all alone..wait..count in the Wind Tribe as the only ones who dislike/hate Suwon. Ah..apparently Kija didn’t know that Suwon isn’t the princess’ enemy. ^^; From the looks of it, he never was. So for now, the mentality here is if someone doesn’t give off a bad feeling = good guy. I guess it can be some sort of charisma and no wonder the other generals have the same effect towards Suwon. Haku and the Wind tribe snapped out of it only after what Suwon did/tried to do to them.
So, it is Lili’s turn to be the hero/sacrificial lamb. Even if she is weak and everything, Lili shines here as she becomes the hero and Yona becomes the damsel in distress who has to be protected. Hopefully something positive/character development comes out of this from Lili. I don’t except much change from Yona if Lili is saved. <- she didn’t change much after Zeno’s ‘almost death’. Maybe if Lili dies? I think Lili will be saved by Jeha and Zeno. Even if they are many, Zeno can handle them. Also, she is ‘begging to be saved’ since they should have killed her right there yet they have to bring her with them to some execution grounds. Perhaps they thought she would make a good example for wannabe escapees. Hm..and the fort is almost complete and they are going to war against Kouka..yet they have to bring an escapee with them ^^; Oh well, it is already established that Sei people are stupid. Now, it would indeed be interesting if Lili dies/got killed though. The implication would be interesting like who is to blame, some angst = hopefully character development, how will Jungi react, etc. But the chance of that happening is almost nil. Anyway, perhaps something that should awaken within Yona will awaken..sword or shield [<- for those who don’t think it is Zeno]. Even if I mention that..I don’t have high expectations of it happening here. ^^;
