    Sadly, Keiki and Taiki had to separate, but he promises after he chooses his ruler, he'll be the first to congradulate him. Mt. Hou was flooded with citizens from Tei who are looking forward to being chosen as the next ruler. Though none of them carried the revelation. Just then, a man with dark red eyes with white hair appears, which causes Taiki to panic. He walks outside for a bit, and meets Risai, one of the most respected generals in Tei. A lot of people expected her to be one of the top two candidates for becoming the ruler. Though Taiki had to deny her too. Then, Gason appears once again and threatens to kill one of the nyokai if Taiki doesn't bow to him. But the man with white hair that frightened Taiki earlier appeared, and took care of them. Taiki was still afraid of him, and ran away, denying him too. It appears that man is General Gyousou; the other top two candidate in the running for ruler.



    It seems rather blatantly obvious that Gyousou will become the next ruler, but what makes this really interesting is how Taiki will approach the situation. Since he's scared of Gyousou, what if he chooses the wrong ruler? Or what if he does choose Gyousou, but he's actually the wrong person in the first place? Then there's Risai, who's also capable of inheriting the throne. How The Twelve Kingdoms sets all of this up is just so brilliant and anticipating.moreless
