Speculation Nation / Re: How do you think Berserk will end?

I do feel silly after reading the earlier posts ITT that explain IoE's detachment from humanity and that it has its own agency. So yeah it would be counter to its own motives if the godhand were killed off through that bizarre loophole.

So can a behleit still activate if all the people or whoever you cherish are dead? I mean what else could Guts sacrifice? I'm only bringing up the behleit because it seems to be a chekhov's gun of sorts with its significance being hidden until some pivotal moment like a "final battle".

Hello there. First post.

I just wanted to ask who is eligible for sacrifice? Is it exclusive to humans or could other apostles/godhand members fit that criteria as well?

I thought that maybe Guts' new band would be killed off by griffith in the climax of the story, and with guts having no one left to care for yet still having the behleit in his possession. He could have his sacrifice be griffith and the god hand? Because they're the only people that he cares about after the death of his new friends?

Similar to how griffith was talking about guts being his anchor when he was being tortured. Guts' purpose and "anchor" after the proposed death of his new band would be the only thing keeping him going, without that he would have nothing I'd assume. So is a sacrifice only restricted to those you "love" or those you care for; whatever that means.

Maybe the god hand would laugh at the thought that they could be sacrificed, while Void looks on without saying anything, then suddenly raises his hand and fires the brands onto all of them, including himself. Because it's ultimately not up to them who gets sacrificed but to causality/idea of evil.

Although this may seem like an ironic way to win that penultimate fight. I can't help but think that it's thematically inconsistent from what the rest of the series has developed up until this point: negating several moral lessons (abandoning revenge to care for the things you have) - anger and hatred literally causing an evil god to emerge that acts as a catalyst for even more suffering.

It brings up the question of how to deal with the Idea of Evil. Maybe there's a good reason why Miura went back and omitted it? (I know he talked of it being too revealing, but maybe it was TOO overpowered in the context of themes presented).
