Spoiler Alert: This article contains a short spoiler for Kingdom chapter 488. If you have not read the previous installment, skip this. Otherwise, read on.
The previous chapter titled Qin King’s Vision features Ei Sei and the Qi King’s discussion about resolving the war. Ei Sei says he knows how to save the citizens of his enemy.
This has caught the Qi King’s interest. Hence, the Qi King challenges the King of Qin to elaborate his proposed idea.
Sei starts to agree with the Qi King’s view of things. The King of Qin also believes that the citizens will not like the idea of having their lands taken away from them. The people would see it as a sign of humiliation.
If Sei intends to unify the lands, he declares that he is fully aware of his responsibility to the conquered citizens. And for the people to agree with this, the King of Qin states that it is necessary to convince the citizens that the current war is not happening for the sake of conquest.
Sei clarifies that the battle does not aim to overthrow the other lands. Instead, the King of Qin points out that war is happening for the sake of unification. Sei further states that the war occurs in order to lead them in a brand new era.
The Qi King understands what Sei is trying to achieve. However, the Qi King does not believe that seven fragmented states can be unified. Sei then insists that it is possible.
Nonetheless, the citizens cannot be united by a single person. They need law to unify them. Since the arc seems to be nearing its end, some fans think that a new era will truly transpire sooner or later.
On the other side of the coin, fans from MyAnimeList.net claim that Sei and Riboku will be meeting in Kingdom chapter 489 or in the later chapters. A user by the name Short_review suggests that if Sei and Riboku see each other, the tone of the story will change.
A user named PaladinAlchemist hopes so, too. The fan likes Sei and Riboku to encounter each other before the manga goes back to Shin or moves on to the next war arc.
These are only predictions for Kingdom chapter 489, though. It may or may not happen.
