Speculation Nation / Re: So i have this theory
« on: Today at 04:57:10 PM »
If there was a faction trying to leave the city? Well, thinking on it a bit more, I don't think they would be allowed to leave, but it would probably be dressed up in a way that makes it seem like it is being done for their own safety.

Well there you go, you just answered in your words my question. It was more of a "what do you think" question.

Like you said and like it has been said multiple times on the board, I do not think either that it's the only plan they have of course. But the main part of their unknown plan is that for the moment. Get people in Falconia and have yourself a better control over humanity.

But hey it's still feasable to live outside of Falconia anyway and with the good knowledge (that say, Guts group and the magic users) people would be able to better live outside the walls and have at least a choice where they want to live. I don't know if I express myself clear enough but Aaz did touch what I'm trying to convey in another thread. Being told :" Sure you can leave whenever you want" knowing that you won't last long outside is still being some kind of "no choice anyway" when we know it's not true because there are ways to make it alive outside Falconia.

Remove the knowledge or prevent it from getting to the people they sure won't try to find another option.

but thx for sharing your opinion on the subject.

Ps: I'm pretty sure griffith has something not that nice in mind somehow. He is a demon after all and was explicitely shown that they are after all, evil.  :femto:

Well, as it was pointed already they don't really have a choice anyway. But if for an unkown reason, some people start to put the pièces together and figure out it would be wiser to leave, would they be stopped or not? That was more the question. And I ask that because that's kinda the plan, to get a shitload of people in the only "safe" city.

I mostly agree with your take (or rather, yours mostly agrees with mine from a decade ago :flora:), but I think you understate the fact people don't have a choice. They either live in Falconia or die outside. And the last time we saw someone try to leave, Rakshas was going after them.

Rickert is kinda a special case though since he knows stuff people don't about Griffith. What I Wonder though is : can a human leave Falconia on his own without being persued? Now I know they would probably not last long outside the protection of Falconia, which comes back to your point that they don't really have a choice. But would they be allowed to leave?

Another interesting detail I've noticed is we see two humans knights wearing Locus' cross on their helmets. Not sure if that's supposed to have a specific meaning or if it's just becoming a common design in Falconia's armies.

I did not noticed that! Might be the generals now have a division of their own or something like that. Or some soldiers associates with some apostle, thus them making helmet or armour similar to their leader. Either way, very interesting.

However we know the concept of karma exists within Berserk. Among other things it is what decides whether souls go to hell (the Vortex) or not. So one of the possibilities I've considered is that maybe there exists a form of reincarnation in the Berserk universe. I mean that in the Buddhist sense, not to be confused with Femto's incarnation in volume 21. Maybe some of the bad souls wander for a while in the astral world and then take new forms, fitting of their past behavior. Like that of a troll. One of Slan's lines in volume 26 kind of hints at that possibility: "Here, near the realm of the dead, is the womb of darkness where loathed souls/spirits form their astral bodies."

Well that's another interesting thing to bring to the table. I've never really thought about that but you got me curious now. With time we might learn more if thats the case or not.

This is one of the many reasons I like to hang around here. So full of imput or nice ideas that are brought up. I'm not good in trying to speculate so I enjoy a lot what is said here instead. It helps me to better understand the story even though I've read it a lot of times. Again, thanx you for existing Skullknight and crew!  :ubik:

I like the giant's armour made out of human stuff like a regular armour used for leg padding and a boat used for a helmet. Priceless!

I must add that Sonia's face doesn't seem to happy about that attack (might be that I read her wrong) but she does seem happy... Might be she's starting to be against such savagery? I would not necessarily bet on that though.

Thanks for the heads-up! That one's going to attract collectors. :guts:

Hh for sure! Pretty much why I jumped on it as soon as I read the thread. Can't wait to see the content.

Nice, thanks for the info Heiji!

See, I told you guys not to always be so hasty to draw conclusions about the release schedule...

True. And didn't they say before the serie resumed in december that it was supposed to be each month now? I know we were "on guard" to not get our hopes too high in case it was just a mini stretch of a release. But maybe it's really going monthly.  Either way it's a great news!

Thx for the heads up!

Whoa! I wonder if we should dare to dream about a larger print size and improved quality. Hopefully, it at least won't be the opposite.

If that happens, my bank account will cry... It's gonna be Worth it thought. Some of my volumes are pretty beat up.

I only expect 8 in Vol 40, so there should be 3 left:

. 351: Forest of Corpses and Thorny Cedars
. 352: Main Culprit
. 353: Final Fragment
. 354: Awakening
. 355: Yo Casca's Back
. 356: TBD
. 357: TBD
. 358: TBD

Other way around -- Vol 39 was the first to only include 8 eps (which was weird, because they could have feasibly bound 351 in the volume). Anyway, I dunno. I think it's more important that he releases 1 volume per year, whether it's 8-9 eps is pretty small potatoes.

I meant vol 39 for the 8ep and yeah I had in mind that the new ones are gonna be 8 ep long. My bad.

To be honest I don't care if there is 8,9 or 10. Because like you said as long as he's able to release a volume a year I'll be satisfied.

It was just a curiosity I had in mind.  :slan:

And I thought we still needed 4 to get to 8 épisodes for the next volume. I did not really check how many were out already hehe.

Yeah, I think it'll be back sometime in 2018. Miura still has time to release the remaining 3 episodes required to publish Vol 40 before December, making the third year in a row he's had a volume.

That's true, there is only 3 episodes left to make a volume. I tought it was 4 left!

Do you think future volumes will stay at 8 episodes per volume for a while or it'll come back to 9 episodes like the last few (except 38 wich I tnk had only 8ep in it)?

My guess is that it's gonna pick up again in sept to december to have 4 more episodes. Than have vol 40 out in march or june 2019. That's my guess. We'll see with time anyway.

Speculation Nation / Re: Will Casca return to Griffith?
« on: March 28, 2018, 12:23:13 PM »
Sure but there are so many other reasons Miura can cook up to suffice that without resorting to a cliche "save the princess" plot. While I think it might be interesting for Casca to in some way come face-to-face with Griffith and/or the child (or for her to see one of them turn into the other) and see that scene play out, a kidnapping scenario where Casca is kept like a bird in a cage for Guts to rescue sounds extraordinarily cheesy and off-brand to me.

Not to mentionned that we already had two kind of scenarios like that in the story : Princess Charlotte being rescued from Ganishka and Casca "kidnapped" by Mozgus crew to burn her (so it's not exactly the same but still is close to).

And then there was the trolls too.

Like you mention Walter, I'd like it more if Casca was to see her son transform (or whatever how it works) into Griffith or something like than her being kidnapped by Griffith.

Wow oh wow! This was incredibly beautifull and tear shedding for an episode! Wow oh wow. I'm glad I was able to get my hands on it after all.

can't wait to see aaz/pualla's summary! (with a huge thank you in advance)

As much as I'd like to resist like some of you guys, I'm gonna visually suck up any spoilers thats come before! I'm not strong enough to resist these little previews.  :ganishka:

Oh no! This would've been my first pre-order  :judo: I suppose it's unsurprising that this'll probably the most-sold issue in a long while.

I' trying to get it somewhere else by them. I'm waiting for an answer from cdjapan. Sucks cause I had been able to get most of the dream sequence in the Young Animal being only able recently to order them. I should have stayed up longer yesterday.  :mozgus:

Well, there seems to be copies again... but not sure yet. I passed the order in case.

Thanks for the reminder Raffo. Something I'm just now realizing, but the online editions of YA don't include the pin-up pages anymore, which means they also have a different cover. I like them better this way to be honest.

What kind of cover are offering for these release if I may ask? You got me curious.

Haha, I'm surprised that not everyone noticed it immediately. I mean, regardless of the spores, she's wearing her robes and all. And if you look at the penultimate page, they're clearly being "called back" to the waking world by Danan.

I've noticed it on the first read but I didn't think it was necessary to mention it since it was (for me at least) pretty clear that it was the spores from the mushrooms. Plus like you said, the robe....

But to come back to Esper's post, i did not feel the last episode to be that rushed. I was very satisfied with the pacing of the events and I would not be surprised if indeed Schierke and Farnèse are in fact somehow affected by that trip Inside Casca's mind. Like it or not, they sure saw some fucked up scenery there and even though they knew they were just in a dream, it can mess you up.

I've never had anything that traumatising in my life and some of my nightmares mess me up so I can't even imagined how this nightmare can affect Schierke and Farnèse at some level.

One thing for sure ; they deserve a well rest! After all, the others are partying while waiting. It's their turn to relax.

March... where are you?!?!?!

Man, what an episode. The best visuals Miura has accomplished in years. Savor this moment, folks.

I'm already at my third time "reading it" (for obviously I can't actually read it but you get what I mean) Incredible beautifull visuals indeed.

These moments make me realize that I'm very very glad to follow this serie and how gratefull I am that it exist!
