The fuck did I just watched?  :schierke:
The Pachinko.

103
No, man. The Vortex takes the souls of those it is promised. It leaves their corpses. Remember the Count, Old Man Wyald?
Ah, you're right.
But  it's the same, in this case.
Because if the body reamain in the Material Plane, we can't know if the branded at the bottom of the Tower were dragged to Hell or not.

104
Well what you happened to the previous God Hand? And with the one even before that? Have they all failed? Or succeeded? Should we even worry about whatever God Hand's final goal is if in the end it won't matter at all after many years?
Maybe they suceeded, an they were dismissed.
Meybe the Age of Darkness is cyclical as well.
Maybe the goal  of Idea is maintain this infinite cycle of Dark and Golden Ages.
Why?
I don't know.
The will of Idea is the will of the mankind, maybe they want to be happy, but suffer at the same time.
[To much speculation, i know, but I love it XD]

After all we know that Idea was created by humans from episode 83, and it'd be nice to have it's creation within the actual story, don't you think?
Idea it was created by the collective consciusness of the species, not by someone in particular, created because the human race wanted to know the reason for their suffering, sadness, death, ecc, ecc.

I think it was something created unconsciously, like, for exaple, a Chaos Gods in Warhammer [see the story of Slanesh in 40k].

Also, like I don't think Idea was born during the Era of Gaiselic, 'cause the mankind started asking these question to themselves ["Why we suffer?", ecc, ecc] way before that.

Quote
Since they're at the same place, does not attract evil spirits and bodies haven't been eaten or dragged to hell.
Well, we don't know, we saw only these corpses, maybe other people were eaten.
For the "Dragged to hell" part, well, the Hawks weren't , we can see their corpses in the Red Lake.

105
It would also make current God Hand and Griffith feel not that important in general.
Well, yes, at the end of the day they're pawns on the chessboard of Idea.
Powerfull/very important pawns, but still pawns.

Also, destruction of the Capital was described as "lightings and earthquakes" not "flesh eating monsters and weird creepy shit".
Yes,but there is this page.

106
In Greek mythology "Gigantomachia" is the war between the Giants and the Olympian Gods, these giants were also called "gigantes", although I don't speak a word of Greek maybe "giganto" could be the singular/plural of "gigantes" ?
In this case it would make sense.
Nope, the singular is "Gigas", the pluras "Gigantes", if I recall correctly.

107
I can rephrase: I was asking for any evidence to support your theory, and you gave me a theory.

I guess when it comes down to it, for me, an illustration of angels, and an oral legend handed down for 1,000 years is not enough to suggest that there were another 4-5 God Hand members that have never otherwise been hinted at or mentioned throughout the series' 25 years. But for you, that illustration and text is enough.
Well, yes, for me, that illustration+text  is enough.
Cause I don't think is some random story that Miura liked to add just for the shake of it, but something more.

But it's just me, of course.

108
I just want to precise here that it's not my theory, only that I'm inclining toward that theorie. (Just in case, I don't want to have credit for a theorie that I did not come up with)

That said, if there was a "first cycle" (which I don't think so, I did think about that a few years back) These members must have been not so strong. As Walter said, it's kinda hard to get rid of one member... I think 4 in a shot would be impossible. Unless there is some very very strong entity or spirit that could do that deal but I don't see that scenario being possible.
Well, if the GH is cyclical, the "changing of the guard" is not merely the defaut of the old GH, is an...event, like the Eclipse, or the Incarnation Cerimony, something written in the flow of causality, something that Idea want.

Maybe the old member simply go into the Abyss [the vortex] after the birth of the new first.
Maybe something else.
Also, they don't necessarily know about their destiny.
About them being disposable.



Quote
and you pointed to something that can't be confirmed as God Hand members.
And that is why is called "Theory"

109
but as we've said a few times here, that could be interpreted as a few different things.
Eh, I know, I said the same XD
We can only wait Miura, for the truth :serpico:

110
And if you believe that the events are cyclical in this regard, then was Gaiseric a direct parallel to Griffith, thus a member of the God Hand?
Yes.
The previous 5th.
Screwed by the new First [Void]

The fact than Falconia arise from the ruins of Midland is a +1 for the Cyclic Theory.
For me, of course.

Quote
Where are the hints, clues, allusions, ciphers, that there were ever any God Hand members dating before 1,000 years ago?

Well, we know there were at least 4 angel at the time of the Fal of Midland, and yes, one of them can be Void, but not Ubik, Slan, and Conrad, because of the 216 years span.
Of course, like I said,  it can be like jackson_hurley said.
It's just a Theory after all, nothing more.

111
I have three words for you: What previous cycle?
Like I said, the Angels mentioned in the legend of Gaiseric.

Of coure it can be like jackson_hurley said.

But, for example, the Incarnation Ceremony, "that occur every millennia", well, why tell that, if is the first time?
If there is a cyclical GH,  is probably the Ceremony where every 5th member regain his fisical form.

112
I don't think Void is the first ever God Hand.
I thing is the first ot this cycle.
I thing the God Hand is cyclical.

Cause is Void is the first, how can we explain the 4/5 Angels in the legend of Gaiseric?
They can easily be the member of the previous cycle, summoned by the Sage/Void.

A CG series doesn't seem plausible
That was before Sidonia.

"Dans la nature rien ne se crée, rien ne se perd, tout se transforme."

Quite beautiful.

Yep! Looking at it now. Trying to parse Miura's comment, which is about STAR WARS. Something about him seeing it for the first time when he was 12...? That lines up, at least.



As you can see, the resolution isn't great on those comments pages...  :judo:

That being said, I get to look at clean as fuck scans like this for $3:





Well, that's much better than the scan.

So much that I decided to start buying the Digital Edition of YA, and so I bought the last 6 Issue.

So now I have 4 different Edition of Berserk XD

A pity that Book in the Store doesn't work for me, but whatever .

I don't know why, but Rakshas apostle form reminds me of the one who had Casca with his tentacles during the eclipse...
