Romance of the Two Networks – Chapters 97-99

This week, Shu and Wei are at each other’s throats nonstop. Sun Quan declares himself emperor, then watches the other two kingdoms fight while eating popcorn. Sima Yi ALMOST does it with a WILD plan (just stand. don’t chase.) but his generals can’t quite pull it off. The chapter title of 99 straight up lies about what happens in that chapter, and the shine continues to fall off the Kongming train.

RIP to Zhao Zilong, a fuckin real one.
