" I of course have not met him myself. Just heard of some rumors.
General Saku, right? That one some time ago."
" Yeah, I don't know anything about General
Ryuu, but from her kijyuu I believe she is an outstanding general.
The kijyuu was very loyal to its owner, and the kijyuu itself was very
tame. Very tamed, maybe I should say. She must have taken great
care of it, but also established her authority as its owner --otherwise,
kijyuus cannot be that tamed."
" It was just that I haven't heard of her name before. Foreign generals'
names are not supposed to spread to us in the first place. General Saku
is just an exception, I think."
Ha ha, Kantai looked as if he noticed
Kantai cocked his head with a slightly more sober expression.
Really, Kantai mumbled, and slipped into his thoughts. Youko also got sunk into thoughts. She didn't know the details, but she knew Risai had come to entrust Tai to Kei. She also knew Risai was desperate to save Tai. However, Kei is just a scratch-team government -- it doesn't have power to help with anything else.
" In the end, evaluations were things other people give."
" Things that other people stick onto the character after seeing
results, right? Even if everything is just luck, if one wins in every
battle, he is called the invincible general. Those invincible generals
might look outstanding, but it may also be that they are just incapable,
but somehow get never defeated before, donft you think?"
