Fast travel unlocked. :griffnotevil:
 

Elfhelm on red altert, wicker men on standby. :puck:

As others have said, this revelation solves a lot of logistical problems Griffith may face. E.g how does one send an invasion force through a world inhabited by powerful monsters to Elfhelm. And how can Griffith expand Falconia's borders without spreading his war demons thin, now we discover he can launch attacks to practically anywhere. We may even see what has become of Vritannis.

Definitely. This opens up quite a few possibilities for the direction of the story. Means of travel and travel time could potentially no longer be a barrier for future plot developments. As far as Guts' side of things is concerned, at one point I considered the possibility of the group sailing the Seahorse across the branches of the World Spiral Tree as their next means of travel post-Skellig. Would be an interesting spectacle at the very least, and would allow Roderick to bring the Seahorse with him.

There isn't any real basis for that happening, but I think it would be pretty cool.  :griffnotevil:


Cool idea indeed! :guts: I mean it's magic so if you can ride your cavalry through a big astral tree branch why not a ship? BTW, this obviously opens up the possibility we ARE shifting back already too if this was indeed the point (could start a new thread in Falconia, coronation, wedding, etc but doesn't necesarially have to continue now). Also, despite this technically being true with every latest episode, it's really never felt closer to the "end game" than now. Miura has pretty much written himself in-canon God powers to move the chess pieces anywhere he wants on the board in an instant. He could credibly start the "final confrontation" at any time now, though I'm guessing his version of rushing it would still be like 10+ volumes instead of 30+ more. :ganishka:

I even want to believe that's why the release of these recent episode(s) was so orthodox, preparing for bigger things ahead, moving heaven and earth behind the scenes, "I'm not slowing down... I'm just RAMPING UP!" :miura: But again, that might be wishful thinking.  :griffnotevil:

Considering that a number of Griff's crew could at least fly, and potentially transport others quickly that way, I think it holds the biggest potential for Guts' side since before they'd have to take volumes traveling by ship and even then finding a way through the wilderness of Fantasia to somehow bypass Falconia's layers of defenses... now they could potentially just appear in Griffith's tree trunk throne room! :guts: Granted, that's just potential, whereas Griffith now already has license to show up anywhere, anytime now.

Indeed. This actually opens up so many possibilities where travel may have been a barrier. The biggest one perhaps being how Griffith and the Falcons could have reached Skellig. Whereas before it may have seemed a bit impractical for them to march and sail all the way to the island in a world that is already overwrought with violent astral creatures, now they could reasonably go there whenever they wanted, and without much effort and with minimal travel time.

Of course, that's putting the cart before the horse as we don't really have a clearly defined motivation for such an attack. But it does open up the possibility.

I think it'll be more likely to be the other way. I'd see Guts and co using that means to get to Griffith or Rickert. Something in the like.

Fast travel unlocked. :griffnotevil:

Well at least it makes sense comparatively to another show...   :slan:

Not back to waiting for the entire episode.

Not the full release, but still enough to tell us what this episode will be about. As expected, it looks like we will be getting the aftermath to the battle against the Jotunn with the Falcons making their return to Falconia.



1. Wicked spread of Griffith Zodd, and Grunbeld after their defeat of the Jotunn. They almost look like a superhero team. :serpico:

2. Looks like Griffith will perform another one of his rituals for the soldiers who fell during the battle.

3. The Falcons appear to be traveling back to Falconia via the branches of the World Spiral Tree. Not unlike the Moonlight Boy did the last time we saw him. Could this be another hint that Griffith and the Boy are one and the same? Either way, this is the most interesting thing about the new episode so far. It opens up the possibility of the Falcons using the branches to reach Skellig, and could also potentially provide a new means of travel for Guts and the party other than another ride on the Seahorse.  :slan:

4. Griffith appearing to congratulate Sonia on her assistance during the battle. I love their interactions and the genuine fondness Griffith seems to impart on her.

5. And we're back to Falconia. If we don't learn the context behind this recent battle in this episode, we surely will soon. And Griffith and Charlotte's wedding may be looming close. From there, the coronation. And from there? Who can say?

Some spoilers from chapter 357.

- Griffith and the Band of the Falcon defeat gigants easily.
- They return to Falconia through a totem archs/doors or something like that (it's like japanese toris but made of stone).
- Griffith congratulates Sonia for her job in the battle with gigants.
- No date for next chapter.
