So here's a rough summary. Bear in mind there might be inaccuracies.

That's just brilliant summary. Thanks a bunch. :ubik: Was it translated from the original Japanese manga or from the Korean scans?

So that nosebridge thing is just an idiom, huh? No wonder why I never recall Guts ever breaking his nose. :ganishka:

He had many Daka and Pishacha at his service, and most of all he was using the Kundalini's power.

Actually I think leaving one's body is a very elementary skill for mages, even Farnese is shown able to manage it after brief training. :farnese:

Is it possible that he could just summon another Kundalini? Since he could harness the creature, shouldn't we see it as part of his power? I don't think Schierke could deal with that thing without Guts' help, and vice versa. :daiba:

Daiba is not an "extremely powerful" magic user.
I always thought he's quite a powerful magic user, second only to Flora perhaps, but at least far above Schierke? :???:

Amazing fight. Finally, the Urumi are out! And yet they didn't deter Rakshas for long. I also don't think there's any doubt as to whether Rakshas has shown us his apostle form or not: he has.

Could it be that he has always been in his apostle form? Just a second transformation or something like that?

BTW Nymoath... is the fire caused by the cannon the Tapasa fire...?

I was not really sure. My Japanese is terrible, the raw pictures I saw are very dim and not clear at all, and I really didn't read it very carefully yesterday. Sorry for leaving a misimpression.

The thing is that I just found that I've made a big mistake in the original post. The Tapasa didn't fire a "cannonball" at Rakshas. What they really did is filling Rickert's fire extinguisher with burning oil instead of water, and poured it on Rakshas. So yes, that's a "Chekhov's gun".

Here's a little more of the episode: the "cannon" and the scratch. (I've tried my best to make the pictures clearer, trust me. :judo:)

I'm curious to see the context of that line.  Is he joking?  Was he being sincere about that desire all this time?  (And if so how could he possibly still think that'll happen given Ganishka's failed attempt?)  And why would he even bring that up now?  I look forward to having those questions answered.

I'm not sure what that line really means. Forgive my terrible Japanese. But he has once made that statement before. Didn't he? :???:

As was made clear by episode 339, Rakshas isn't hiding under the cloak: he is the cloak. Look at your own pictures: he is basically a monster made up of fabric. Whatever head and organs he has must be distributed within the cloth.

That's very likely to be right I guess. But at least he's got a face somewhere in that cloak. Wonder if he has blood?

Rickert refers to Rakshas as "戦魔". (A name for Griffith's apostle soldiers, though Rakshas still hasn't show his apostle form so far.)
I'm not really sure about that. It's possible that he is already in his apostle form; it's just hidden under his cloak. :???:

Also, did Dark Horse officially named him "Raksas"? Though I'd still prefer Rakshas, maybe it would be better to stay with the official spellings.

Thanks for the translation. Does anybody have a link to the manga pages?

Please wait till 25th.

As far as I know, Chinese scanlators got the episode even earlier than me. So it's possible that we'll have the Chinese scans before 25th.  :schierke:

Title: 暗闘 - The Combat in the Darkness/The Secret Feud (not sure)


Rakshas finds Rickert; his new mask still has three eyes, but has some feather-like pattern on each of them. :rakshas:

Rickert shoots Rakshas with his crossbow, but most of the shots are dodged.

One of the shots hits Rakshas' mask. Rickert: "Got it!" (やった!)

Rakshas: "I should've said it before... That's not where my head is."

Rickert says something about the swine apostle guy that he and Guts met back at the blacksmith's.

Rakshas: "I will kill the Falcon by my own hand someday." (私何時か殺したい鷹をこの手で。Not sure what he means here :???:)

Silat suddenly attacks Rakshas, referring to Rakshas as "The Joyful Murderer"(快楽殺人者).

Silat has a fierce combat with Rakshas and successfully leaves a long scratch on his face.

Rakshas: "As an arrogant son of the chieftain... You're not someone I could take lightly."

Silat: "My arrogance was torn when that guy (Guts) crushed my nose bridge... I've grown a lot after that fight with him."

The two Tapasa guys fire a cannonball at Rakshas. Successfully hit. The two Tapasa guys fill the fire extinguisher with burning oil and fire it at Rakshas.

Rickert refers to Rakshas as "戦魔". (A name for Griffith's apostle soldiers, though Rakshas still hasn't show his apostle form so far.)

Rakshas grabs a horse to the sky, tears it into half, and uses the horse's blood to douse the flame that covered his body.

As the fire is spreading, Erica goes out of the shelter so as to save the city from fire.

Luca calls Erica to save her from danger, but Erica is already captured and lifted to the sky by Rakshas. :magni:

Rickert: "Ericaaa!!"

Episode #341 will be published in Young Animal #21 (23rd October).

Interesting thing about the writer of Attack On Titan, Isayama: He is a huge Berserk fan. He once shared a photo of his office on his blog, and we can see more than 10 volumes of Berserk on his bookshelf. Maybe he has more in his home.

This is more than epic!

Of course, Zodd is by no means an exception to the rule, as so far the Neo Hawks (Grunbeld, Locus, Irvine) appear to follow suit.

In addition, Rosine and the Egg Apostle. I think it's not that Apostles have to eat human flesh to maintain themselves, but that they have a desire for human flesh. Those apostles who don't eat human are the ones who could conquer the desire for human flesh.

Sorry for my bad English.

Just purchased the Japanese Kindle edition of Berserk Volume 1 and it's really awesome! :guts: The official scans are real clean, and more importantly, it includes ALL COLOR PAGES! :ganishka: Even the color pages that weren't included in the MBR edition can also be seen. :ubik: The price is 550 yen, just as the original book. File format is azw3, which can be opened in the software "Calibre", or "Kindle for PC" as well (though I do think Calibre is easier to use).

Here is one of the color pages left out in the MBR editions:

Just curious, why not just get the original volumes? Or is this in addition to those?

The reason I ask is that around here, for conversation purposes we say "well that happened in volume 24", or "volume 22 has the best fight in the series." But with these "remixed" volumes it's all mixed up.

Yes, that's an addition (for color pages). In my district they've actually already released Volume 37 about a month ago, however none of the local bookstores sells manga... Thus I'm going to buy it online soon with the YAR volumes. I have some DH volumes as well, but none of those original volumes include many color pages as the "remixed" volumes do.

The MBR volumes weren't released to promote the 1997 TV series... They came out in 2007.

Yes, they do. They're pretty similar overall, though the YAR stop at volume 6 instead of going up to volume 12 (which corresponds to volume 27 for the tankōbon). But that won't matter much to you if you're only interested in the color pages, as only the early volumes had them.

Oops, sorry for the mistake. Thanks a lot for the useful information on the remixed volumes.

EDIT: I just purchased the Japanese Kindle edition of Berserk Volume 1 and it's really awesome! :guts:

First off, you should buy those MBR volumes if you want them. Second, indeed, not all color pages were included in them.

Those pages (all of the color pages, those present in the MBR volumes and those missing) originally appeared in Young Animal. If you're interested in getting them, know that they were reproduced in the "Illustrations File" artbook, which you can easily buy online.

Yes, I will purchase them maybe some time next month... But since the MBR volumes (released in order to promote the 1997 animation) are out of print by now, I'm going to buy the YAR volumes (to promote the 2012 film trilogy) instead. Do they also include the color pages like the MBR volumes?
