I'm gonna make a more spoilery post later on, but some thoughts on the chapter:
-Taitou's dream is OMG. I'm kinda disappointed in its predictability, but at the same time Taitou has become more interesting now.
-Ryuukou worrying for him AWWWWW. D:
-Housei is still traveling with them YES!
-Housei's master is awesome. XDDD I was expecting her to be scary like Izumi, but instead.... XDDDD
-Finally Mr. Scarface Tonrou's name is revealed! Keirou! And he's a general of the imperial army!
-The Xia Dynasty fell because of the fight between Tonrou and Hagun?! *needs to research this!*
-CLIFFHANGER ENDING!! BRING ON THE ANGST?!
EDIT: I decided to post my picspam/summary here instead.
