"Analyzing the Power Struggle between Imperial Authority and Ministerial Authority in the North Uji Blowing Department Incident"

The root of any political division is the division of power.

After the arduous journey of the Sanxiang era and the continuation of the Nanzhong Group, Kumiko, who took over the baton of the Blowing Department for three years, became an extremely powerful Minister with unprecedented power and prestige, while the power and prestige of saving the Blowing Department of Kitauji gradually reached its peak. Especially among the third-year students, Kitauji has the favor of reshaping the world. The simultaneous growth of the power of ministers and advisors planted the seeds of division. Analysts have long ignored the factors behind the struggle between the imperial power and the ministerial power of the Blowing Department in the "Minister Disqualification Incident."

The minister is as solid as flowing water.

For the adult Kitauji, interpersonal relationships within the Blowing Department are not of interest. Kitauji has always maintained a detached attitude, adhering to a highly realistic national utilitarianism. Kitauji has no intention of engaging in power struggles with the ministerial cabinet, as long as their orders are carried out, everything else is irrelevant. However, any cabinet that obstructs this historical process will be crushed.

The Blowing Department cabinets of the first and second years are generally peaceful with the advisors, "the premise of monarch and loyal minister is that the weak and scattered ministerial power cannot resist the imperial power." After the Nanzhong Group weakened the power of the Vocal Department Council in the second year, Kumiko's power reached its peak, with one man and one woman serving as deputy ministers and leaders, making her cabinet a solid entity.

The "Minister Disqualification Incident" was the first confrontation between the ministerial power and the advisor's imperial power in the Blowing Department. Even though Kitauji and Kumiko had no such intentions, the inherent nature of power is to devour and clash with each other, and the dualistic constitutional system inherently has flaws. The unconscious actions of both parties passively expressed the power contradictions within the Blowing Department. The pattern of power division in the Blowing Department will inevitably lead to numerous "Minister Disqualification Incidents."

The sudden appearance of Hei Jiang constituted Kitauji's first blow to Kumiko's cabinet. An unstable factor, the fervent leader of the Protect Kitauji Party, Rina, became the first crack in Kumiko's cabinet, inadvertently playing the prelude to the struggle between the ministerial power and the imperial power.

Further exacerbating the conflict is Minister Kumiko deeply involved in the event vortex. Faced with Kitauji's arbitrary appointment decisions, Kumiko adopted a classic grassroots response. Negligence, inaction, passive responses, allowing internal rumors and divisions to spread, watching Rina lose control, and fueling the contradictions between the Protect Kitauji Party, the Kitauji Guards (eunuchs), and the cabinet party. Attempting to use the surging public opinion to counter Kitauji's imperial power. While appearing high and mighty on the surface, harboring resentment in secret, almost causing another turmoil in the Blowing Department after the rebellion of Shimi. Thanks to the guidance of the older generation of Sanxiang, the situation was brought under control, preserving her position as minister, continuing to play the game of monarch and loyal minister. However, the division within the cabinet has become inevitable, and by the end of the drama, there is a rift between Rina and Kumiko.

For Kitauji, all of this may just be a practical move in line with national utilitarianism. The sudden appearance of Hei Jiang, the replacement of Kumiko's party members by Kyo Ishi's sister, inadvertently and cleverly penetrated Kumiko's "solid" cabinet, consolidating her advisor's power.

In the story, the main characters, as high school students, never had the ability to fight against the imperial power of adult advisors and teachers from the beginning. However, the unprecedented concentration of power and prestige of Kumiko in the third year created an illusion. For Kitauji, the so-called surging public opinion is nothing more than the fleeting dissatisfaction of teenage girls. Just like the cherry blossoms in April, if left alone, they will naturally fall. Everything will remain the same, with solid advisors and flowing ministers.
