Pretty weird girl that I'm sure hides something. But I don't know if they are on Skelig already, because we can see some kind of miner, and the description doesn't seem to match with the one of Puck, but maybe that's just the coast, it's not clear.

Great fight!  :chomp:

And I really appreciate the Guts' rage drawn in his face, it remembers me some old battles.

I have to concur with those who blame AOW for the relationship between price/quality.

I can remember the old good times where the AOW statues were more well-made and cheaper. :schierke:

Just think to the Griffith shooting star compared to the millennium falcon(with/out helm). Same speech for the price policy.

I can sincerely say that works such as the one of Joa or others here, are -much- better and well refined than the one of AOW made in the last few years.

So, what do you guys think of the sea monster now? Looks like a monstrous octopus with a lamprey-like mouth to me.

This monster seems like a sort of Kraken to me. (And Guts seems fine and well healed).  :chomp:

Notice the bandages on the arm as well.

Good catch. It's always impressive to see how much Miura pays attention to every single line in order to adjust, according his taste a character emotion or facial expression. Same here for Guts.

In the new world of Fantasia, does anyone think that  :schierke: Schierke's magic, or that any of the magic fetishes granted to Guts' party, power will increase? Or in a worse case scenario, could Guts' dreadful ego  :beast: become more powerful in this new world?

Actually I don't think we have any clues to speculate or assume such things. Anyway about the Beast of Darkness, I wouldn't really think its unleash would be bound to a severe spiritual influence from the merged world. We know already what will eventually broke its chains but if the new world will give her more power(in which way?) I can't imagine it.

Right now I'm more interested in this release instead of the one for PS3, though I'd say that some structures or details are still borrowed from SOTN and Aria of Sorrow.

IMHO there are still no Castlevania games that could even be equal to SOTN(and sometimes I wonder how it'd ever be, if the issue of the release time of the game that involved the reverse castle as a quick choice would have been solved with a brand new Castle, same problem for the second disk of Xenogears, even if in that case the SQ budget was almost at limit for the release of FFVIII).

After the Rondo of Blood for PSP, IGA said that the series will eventually go on for other twenty years. I myself love the remakes, but let's see those new games.

The boss says the creatures are their new "brothers", so I'm inclined to think they are related to the ghost ship in a way or another.

Yes, in fact. Anyway, looking better at the pics.

It's me, or on the right border of the pics there's something similar to a "wing"?  :isidro:

When someone disappoint Guts no matter how if it's human or not.  :guts:
It's a long time since he doesn't stamp on an head. (if I remember correctly it was a troll one).  :void:

One lingering question for me still is how did it go from ghosts --> possession --> tentacles? Especially since the pirate crew is still (mostly at least) intact.

In my opinion the tentacles comes from a different creatures, besides the ghosts, but of course I'm not sure.  :???:

I wonder myself what exactly is going on there, like is the Cap'in himself a part of that monster? What we can see of his torso looks different from his clothes before, and similar to the texture of that hideous creature, so perhaps he's at the head of one of those bizarre appendages? Could go either way from what I see, or don't see.

Yeah, indeed. We still don't know what had happened on him clearly. It could be as you said.  :isidro:

Personally, I'd be satisfied if it's just a similar motif, as I wouldn't mind watching him jump around some more. :ganishka:

Haha  :guts: Yes, it's better with his knife leg prothesis!

Well I guess that now the captain could manage better a new clash against Roderik.  :void:

Then as Griff said, Guts looks quite better and ready for the action. I wonder if those weird monsters are the captain's crew.  :???:

The brands bleed because of the ghost ship. That Guts is feeling something in his arm... is not a fact.

Yes I know, and I do not have expressed clearly before, I didn't want to state (as I am sure of it) that is a fact that Guts is feeling something on his artificial arm for sure.

In the preview for 308 when 307 was released, it could be that the shot of Guts holding his artificial arm (OR ATTACHING IT) could've simply been telling the viewers, "GUTS IS GONNA BE BACK IN ACTION." That thought alone makes me happy.

Yes I meant even something like that. That could be IMO a connection between the fact that Guts is holding is artificial arm and the fact that his brand is bleeding.

Interesting episode.

I really wonder the connection between the bleeding brand and the fact that Guts feels something on his arm.  :???:

I don't see the relation between your parenthesis and the rest of the sentence.

I mean that we don't know if even his eye and arm would heal as for the spiritual wound. The relationship was about the importance.

To me it looks like it could be blood??

Yes, it looks like blood too!  :???:

Great suff!

Yes I agree with Aaz, it seems that the ship is going to be ghostly.(maybe if this is happens, shark raider could go after Roderik again..).

However I think that at this rate the pirates and their ship may have some kind of role.

About Guts healed, and being sure that something is going to happen to his artificial arm, I can't just wait to see.  :zodd:
Furthermore like Aaz pointed out, one of the most important things (such as eye and arm) to understand is whether or not the spiritual wound from Slan could heal.

(But what is it under the pirate ship? A vortex? Moreover that does seem to overflow from the ship? the Ghosts?)

It was to find the "Ultimate Strong One". He has found it in the person of Griffith (as the Falcon of Light), so now he serves him.

A side note: This reminds me the issue about the foreknowledge of the pontiff concerning the name of Falconia.
This passage of Zodd makes me remind that after the dream, he knows already where Griffith will come, while in the dream, and therefore to the reader, there's no clue about it.

I guess we can think the same about the foreknowledge of the Pontiff.  :schierke:

The next episode is in less than a week. What are you guys expecting? Sea monsters? Skellig in sight? Guts healed? Go ahead and speculate.

I think that while they are starting to see Skellig, the party start to think to each other(since the goal is near, and everyone will be questioning about the future). Then they feel some presence in the sea, and they'll see like D-scape said, some mermaids, that will be soon attacked by some sea monsters. So Schierke while trying a spell to protect the ship, some other power casts a barrier upon the ship in order to grant them a safe arrival to the shore of the Island. Once there everyone will notice a suggestive landscape and they will meet someone that was waiting for them(I think something like the Flora's awareness of them thanks SK). Here Guts will soon feels much better and several injuries will start to heal.

But I've been thinking of something similar to you, but different in a key way -- I've been thinking that Skellig could have some magical defenses that go haywire as a result of the merging. Massive waves blocking the way or something like that. Natural defenses, but enhanced by magic. Flora had Golems, afterall. Why not something similar or even more dramatic, for an island of magic creatures and magic users?

Good point. It could be quite possible.

Please not. Damn it people, savor the moment, don't be so impatient! It's taken us so long to get there, and now you want it rushed? Madness. This is the pivotal moment of the series. Not just the merging of the worlds and the apparition of Falconia, but the arrival at Elfhelm as well. Stop running around for a second and take some time to enjoy it.

Yes, I have to agree.

Speculation Nation / Re: How did SK know Guts was born from a corpse?
« on: October 03, 2009, 09:12:01 AM »
How exactly did the Skull Knight know that Guts was born from a corpse? Has he really been observing him for all this time?  :SK:

SK knows a lot of things...  :SK:

However without any clues about it, I sincerely don't mind too much this question, but I think that in case, SK should have observed the parents of Guts(or even his mother) to see he born from her corpse. But any idea it'b be too weak.

Now that is what I call a brilliant observation! :guts:

Yeah, indeed. Truly a good finding.

I've never heard of this. What's your source?

The only thing that comes in my mind is the Lucifer from Bastard!!, but I don't know how reliable as source it'd be.

I guess that Walter meant that without any basis or clues, that would give any direction to a speculation, then, those ideas will remain merely too far from any possible scenario.

For example we know that Guts was planning to beat down the God Hand, but what we do know about the fact that the other member could prevail on him or not? We do have any clue that may give a reasonable direction to a speculation about it?

Where is the intriguing in thinking something without a further clue?(like the end of Idea of Evil?)  :schierke:

I've skimmed this long thread (enjoyable), but I don't think anyone has yet brought up the possibility that Falconia, as it currently stands, may currently be populated, or at least, not entirely empty. Which of course is mere speculation, but it's speculation I haven't seen brought up yet.

I would like to speculate instead on the possibility that Griffith would rearrange the social class system.

Now as now, the laws of the world are replaced by the merging, and we don't know what Griffith plan to do after sittin on the throne.

Furthermore, the city is composed of several different structures, so I wonder who has to live in larger buildings and who have to live in ordinary house.

To me Falconia doesn't seem an ideal city like an heaven where everyone is equal, so I don't know how Griffith will handle this.

It would seem obvious and locigal that he would give massive buildings to the apostles, but I'm not sure about it.

I wonder if the greed of people and nobles will still continue to exists or despite different structures everyone will live better than before.

From Garnet Chronicles on PSP (Crimson gem saga in US):

Playing this RPG, my attention was captured by something vaguely familiar...  :azan:

As much as Guts would like to have his arm back, I think he'd find that canon more useful than a real arm.

Yes but that arm was not able to grab the people he loves. I would not be that surprised if he choose his real arm.

By the way, I have been thinking about what could possibly lead Guts to stay in Elfhelm for a while.
Maybe the Elf King will tell him:

2) It takes a long time to Guts to heal, including making his arm and eye regrow. :isidro:

Yes I was wondering about this scenario too. Moreover, if that would be the case, I think that:

-His arm could be replaced with a magical one;
-Guts will be somehow able to control his actual one;
-As you said, he will gain back his eye and arm.

I think it is quite a possibility since the episode 287 events.

About the other members of Guts' party, I always thought that once on Elfhelm, it'd be a good chance to compare each other, for example Farnese and Serpico.
Maybe they could have a talk about the fact that they are kindred or something like that.

I guess that Guts would think how to act if Casca would turn sane again, and Azan may explain what happened after the Albion collapse.

Maybe we'll have some breathing space from everyone, even from Roderik and Magnifico.

Of course I'm almost sure that Puck is gonna be a guest star.  :puck:
