I cannot believe this. Looks like The Sea God is emerging. What in the hell are those crazy fish monsters surrounding Guts?!

Also, what's that boy up to?

Cannot wait for this episode.

Hell yeah, finally a chance to get a good look at it. I wonder how big it really is... Also, notice that the tentacles are bright white in the panel. I really wonder what their luminescence is all about.

What in the hell are those crazy fish monsters surrounding Guts?!

Looks like some kind of monstrous octopus inside of the Sea God! I'm guessing it's the heart of the creature; in the lower left panel we can see that Guts has reached it. Doesn't look like it's just more symbiotic parasites, though one tentacle's got a lamprey look to it and the others look like specific sea animals as well (some eels?).

Meanwhile, while Isidro's blowing up sea cucumbers, the boss manages to escape yet again...

Also, what's that boy up to?

He and Isma are looking at something pretty intently, and it doesn't seem to bode well. Isma says she feels a "chilling" aura/atmosphere. Maybe just the Sea God's emergence? Or...

Awesome ! So next issue we won't be getting an episode? But the movie news sounds interesting. Also a quick analysis on the heads in the last panel! The main one on the left resembles a Gulper Eel, the middle a Lamprey and the right an interesting sea creature , a Goblin Shark.

It's really refreshing to see "normal Puck" in a few of those preview shots. Even though he's shown up in his "regular" form here and there, I feel we need more non-deformed cartoony Puck. I'd die for a big close-up of Puck with a huge look of shock on his face, feeling some weirdness about the Sea God.

EDIT: What the heck is Isma carrying?

Pouches filled with gunpowder (hence why they caught on fire). As for the compass she threw at the boss, it seems to have saved Isidro from the crossbow bolt he was shooting from his crutch. The two make a good team. :slan:

I was hoping for a spectacular introduction of the Sea God and it looks like we got one. :void: Rip the island in half!

I wonder if it emerges to fight the Sea Horse, or if it's a reaction to the damage Guts is doing to its heart (or both).

Yeah it was awesome to see her being so useful during the fight. She didn't cower in the face of danger in any sense.

Since the Boss appears to be laughing as they retreat, I imagine that the sea god is emerging to finish the fight. If that's indeed the case, Guts' internal surgery needs to get wrapped up quickly.  :magni:

Indeed, she's a pretty bold girl in all respects.

I wonder if it emerges to fight the Sea Horse, or if it's a reaction to the damage Guts is doing to its heart (or both).

At this point I think it's coming out to whoop the Sea Horse's ass (and also simply because it can come out and leave the prison it's been confined to for who knows how many centuries). I'm thinking that it could make Farnese waver (totally understandable) or overpower/circumvent the spell somehow, and the Moonlight Boy would intervene while Guts wraps up his cardiovascular procedure. :badbone:

Although this sea god is very acute to what Griffith had to go up against Ganishka, Griffith at least had suppost from his huge army to tame the battle. Guts is going against considerable odds, within the beast itself all alone.

Just off that top of my head, I kinda feel Guts can confidently battle a legion of apostles. Maybe thats a strech I don't know but possibly considering what he does with this forth coming battle, it may become very realistic that he can hack his way through Griffiths incredible army and actually make it to him in one piece (alone.) I might be giving him too much credit suggesting that. This next fight will help us get a good impression how Guts can fair against such odds through his trial and errors up this point with the Berserker Armor.

I've found the link to both questions:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EcCPP6oL1M

and the right an interesting sea creature , a Goblin Shark.

As a shark lover I was super excited when I saw the Goblin Shark head, and a cool reference as they're native to Japan if I remember correctly. By the way, everyone who always knew the Sea God was a sharktopus (http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=11636.msg183349#msg183349) raise your hand. :daiba:

Although this sea god is very acute to what Griffith had to go up against Ganishka, Griffith at least had suppost from his huge army to tame the battle. Guts is going against considerable odds, within the beast itself all alone.

I still like his odds better than the Sea God's going forward. :guts: Also, I don't think it's at all "acute" to Griffith's situation.

Well, as we already know the armor levels the playing field so with it Guts carves through average Apostles like he does average men, but it's a different mjatter when it comes to other elite powerhouses like Zodd, Grunbeld, etc.


Anyway, love the shot of the Sea God emerging, it's like in this episode all our dreams come true:

Super creepy stuff going on in there.  Goblin shark made me happy.  I hope the sea god breaks the whole side of the cliff apart so we can get a good glimpse of him.  So far we've just seen his giant mouth, would be interesting to see his whole body.

I can't imagine everyones reaction back on the ship!

The fight between Isidro and the pirate captain was the highlight of this episode. I love when Isidro gets to business. Plus he looked like a total stud in front of Isma. Yeah, the two totally make an awesome team. Makes me think.  :isidro: :schierke:

I love all these victories against the pirates. They've got their ass kicked so many times. I can't wait to see the look on their face when the Sea God dies.

Speaking of which, Guts is really in for some trouble.

Can't wait til 7/8!

Whoa, that's super cool. I love the panels of the insides of the Sea God a lot. I'm interested to learn what the Captain says during the battle because for them to retreat so easily is suspicious. I mean, this isn't taking anything away from the fact that Isidro fought well against him, it's just ... too convenient if you think of all those threatening super-slugs in the Captain's arsenal. I cannot wait to read this in paper form!

EDIT: Another thought with regard to the Sea God to come out - I know there's mention of it being aggravated perhaps because of Guts' intrusion inside especially because it can figure his intent to kill, but maybe the Sea God is out to sort of attack the ship or hold that against Guts' success inside. "If you kill me, I'll swat your friends out there like a fly ... so get out!" - something on those grounds? Lot of Ifs and Buts :???:

I was thinking the same thing, however, I was thinking maybe along the lines of schierke's having to use her powers to help guts.. perhaps the sea god senses this and is attempting to disrupt guts's activities through reaching her.
Title: Re: Episode 322
Post by: IncantatioN on June 24, 2011, 04:17:08 PM
Maybe. I'm inclined to think it's not in the best interest of the Sea God for him to have Schierke separate from Guts in their current attack-mode. It'll get Guts to go wild uncontrollably, killing the Sea God quicker X'D.

Also curious to see what the Moonlight Boy and Isma have in store in the next episode(s).

I just read it and it was great! Those eyes on the heart really do look creepy. Of all the threats that appeared, I"m more inclined of the Jellyfish. Hopefully, by the next episode, we have a good look at the Sea God.

Awesome episode !!! Can't wait to see the dialog between the boss and Isidro. I loved page 7 with Isidro threw the mini bombs into the tentacle.

They sure are scary :D.

Thank god we have another episode next week. I can't wait to see what the sea god looks like!!!

I'm guessing we'll get to see the Sea god in the next episode (i think he will be quite pissed off because Guts is messing with his heart :ganishka:)
Then in the episode after that hopefully we'll see some merrows action.

I love all these victories against the pirates. They've got their ass kicked so many times. I can't wait to see the look on their face when the Sea God dies.

After Isma throws the compass in his face, he says that if he weren't a tentacle he'd be dead. Later on his crew tells him that they don't want to die twice and that if he wants to do it, he should do it alone. As they leave, he says "see you again". Then Magnifico asks if it's finished. :iva:

Inside the Sea God, Guts comments on how the air is heavy. He can't breathe well. His body feels heavy, like being in water. Schierke remarks that the heart is palpitating faster.

Whoa, that's super cool. I love the panels of the insides of the Sea God a lot. I'm interested to learn what the Captain says during the battle because for them to retreat so easily is suspicious.

He says they'll meet again, but really, there's nothing suspicious about their retreat given the beating they took. And the sea slugs you mention were unable to attack because of Farnese's spell.

EDIT: Another thought with regard to the Sea God to come out - I know there's mention of it being aggravated perhaps because of Guts' intrusion inside especially because it can figure his intent to kill, but maybe the Sea God is out to sort of attack the ship or hold that against Guts' success inside. "If you kill me, I'll swat your friends out there like a fly ... so get out!" - something on those grounds?

There's no reason to think it was aggravated by Guts' intrusion before he reached the heart (since it has eyes and can seemingly see Guts directly). As for attacking the ship, I think it's doing so very simply because its "beard" can't reach it and has been beaten back yet again. It's probably (and logically) pissed off and has decided to end it once and for all. I highly doubt it's planning on bargaining with Guts in the way you describe...

I was thinking the same thing, however, I was thinking maybe along the lines of schierke's having to use her powers to help guts.. perhaps the sea god senses this and is attempting to disrupt guts's activities through reaching her.

Again, that seems a far more tortuous reasoning than the logical course of action I described earlier (tentacles can't beat the ship, so the Sea God is going to take it on directly).

Maybe. I'm inclined to think it's not in the best interest of the Sea God for him to have Schierke separate from Guts in their current attack-mode. It'll get Guts to go wild uncontrollably, killing the Sea God quicker X'D.

Honestly, I'm pretty sure the Sea God's heart is done for no matter what happens outside. However, octopuses usually have 3 hearts, and the one Guts is facing looks pretty small to me compared to its size, so he might have to hack a few more hearts before the thing dies for good.

I'm guessing we'll get to see the Sea god in the next episode (i think he will be quite pissed off because Guts is messing with his heart :ganishka:)

And because its "beard" has been mangled some more, like I've been saying.

Seriously, I have no fucking idea how Guts is gonna kill that thing and escape safely. If he kills the Sea God, it's probably going to collapse, with Guts inside. Imagine if that thing starts sinking. Guts is gonna have to chop his way out quickly. I really do feel like Guts is in danger.

Great episode! So it's hearts beating faster/strangely? Closer to the climax of the ritual? I don't believe the Sea God is aware of Guts intrusion personally unless it was pr oven shown somewhere i missed. Guts simply went right inside his mouth and he snapped down. There was that cut in the stomach but maybe the Sea God can't feel it, it would be cool if it's behaviour was having something to do with the ritual and more information on that was found out (and maybe moonlight boy?).

Do you think it is safe to assume that mesh of sea creature tentacles is "Sea God- Inner" final boss? Also assuming there is a yet to be revealed main tentacle head)

Given that the Sea Gods heart has eyes, it could very well be possible form it to be aware of guts. And a cut through the stomach hurts, no matter how big something is.
The heart beeting faster could just be the Sea God breaking out of the island. It has just woken up and is now starting to move, so it's just natural that its pulse is going up.

I think the Sea God is quite aware of Guts. I don't think it could see Guts before the eyes opened on its heart, but then again we don't know much about what it can or can't do. And I doubt very much the cut Guts made in its stomach went unnoticed.

Do you think it is safe to assume that mesh of sea creature tentacles is "Sea God- Inner" final boss? Also assuming there is a yet to be revealed main tentacle head)

I'm not sure why you're using video game terminology for this, but I think the heart is key to defeating the Sea God. I think Guts will eventually get help from the merrows, but he didn't work his way through the Sea God's anatomy over the last few episodes for nothing.

As for whether or not there will be a "head" to the thing, who knows? I imagine the outside of the Sea God will look pretty cool (this is Miura we're talking about), but I doubt significant damage can be done to it without. I think the merrows are going to have to seal it again, unless the Moonlight Boy has some part to play besides observer.

And Guts' sword shall be known as "The God Slayer" :iva:

Seriously, I have no fucking idea how Guts is gonna kill that thing and escape safely. If he kills the Sea God, it's probably going to collapse, with Guts inside. Imagine if that thing starts sinking. Guts is gonna have to chop his way out quickly. I really do feel like Guts is in danger.

Yeah, I've been wondering the same actually. Might be a close call. Maybe Isma will come to his aid?

Great episode! So it's hearts beating faster/strangely? Closer to the climax of the ritual?

Dude, haven't I already told you not to hold on so dearly to the idea of a ritual? There's no "ritual" anymore. No ritual even took place. The "villagers" wanted to sacrifice people to celebrate the day but it looks like it was pure form. The Sea God clearly didn't need it. Like Gaahl said, the heart beats faster because the Sea God is exerting itself: breaking out from its prison at last and preparing to obliterate the Sea Horse.

Do you think it is safe to assume that mesh of sea creature tentacles is "Sea God- Inner" final boss?

See what Rhombaad said. This isn't a video game.
