Hahaha, they're still making these...?

They really shouldn't bother with titles for these sequels. Should just be like Madden games or car models: MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 2015.

Trailer for Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation - Fate

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNPZGc0WmfM

Didn't use a stuntman for the last scene in the trailer. Overall - looks fun. Same MI formula.

I'm all caught up on Vagabond (on the Viz releases, anyway), so I've started reading The Walking Dead. My wife's parents got me the first compendium for Christmas.

"This will be my final Metal Gear."
"No really, this is it, guys. My final game with Snake."
"This time's for real though. Please enjoy ... my FINAL Metal Gear game."
"Metal Gear Solid 3 is the final chapter in the Metal Gear Solid series."
"This fourth [Metal Gear Solid] is going to be the final one for me."
"I really don't want to say that this the final game or this is the wrap up, but if I don't say it, people will make me create MGS again!"
"That's why this is definitely my last Metal Gear and the end of Solid Snake's story. There probably will be a Metal Gear Solid 5, but it'll more than likely have a different world, characters, and story.
"And this time I'll say it again this is the last one. Not the last Metal Gear, but the last one I'll work on."
"Well, you assholes keep buying this shit, so here I am again. Thanks a lot."
"But seriously, now I'm gone. This is my final Metal Gear game (as a contracted Konami employee)."
"Well, Konami offered me a really sweet package for my first freelance gig, so I'll be working on Metal Gear. Enjoy, you  motherfuckers..."

Bah, meant color splash (unless I missed something). I have that brain stuck to the wall behind the bust sculpt ... which I spent about an hour on last night correcting the interhemispheric fissure which was off center ... I'm learning things about brain anatomy  :ganishka:

Character Cove / Re: Love in Berserk (Guts and Casca and others)

Ok ok, I hate to be the guy who spoils peoples fun, but the Guts+Casca relationship is most likely definitely NOT going to happen.

Well I hate to be the guy spoiling your fun, but your entire post results from a poor comprehension of the story.

But guess what, Miura already metaphorically in the story talked about the impossibility of things going back to the way they were. Volume 33 people, the beginning of volume 33 involves the cold hard and most likely truth that Guts realized himself. How Casca and him have changed and gone through so much that things simply just don't come back to the way they were. He uses the metaphor of his arm never coming back and the failure of him being unable to catch her when she fell off the boat.

What a leap in logic. Guts saying he can't just forcibly replace what he's lost, like in the case of his arm, becomes "Guts realized he can never have a relationship with Casca again". Never mind that Guts' love for Casca is weaved throughout the story and is, among other things: the only reason he is going to Elfhelm, the only reason he made new friends along the way, the only reason he manages to regain himself when using the Berserk's armor. Never mind that in the very same episode you mention, Farnese panicked and returned to her corporeal body because she did not want to hear him say what Casca represents to him. Note that Schierke, who's also got a crush on Guts and who heard what he said, thought to herself in the next episode that she was alright with it, and took solace in the unique relationship she already shares with him.

Think of Guts and Casca as a previous love relationship that some of you might have had.

I don't think projecting your personal life experience onto the story helps you (or anyone else) understand it better.

But you are unable to get back together because both of you changed so drastically between the years that you no longer feel compatible. You may want to get back together and you do love that person, but the bond is gone. That is the reason why most relationships with people who try to get back together ultimately fail, which exactly what is happening to Guts and Casca.

I am astonished to have to remind you that Casca is currently mentally ill, and not in control of her faculties. That example of yours is completely irrelevant, and is definitely not comparable to the situation between Guts and Casca. That's not to say that Guts & Casca's relationship will resume as if nothing had happened when she regains herself, or that there won't be any tension or conflict between them. But you're talking about it as if it's already happened and failed, where in fact it hasn't even begun.

Also, the other thing that confuses me is how some people believe Farnese's relationship with Guts is probably the same as with Casca's and Griffith's.

Griffith changed Casca's life drastically and she idolized him for it. Guts changed Farnese's life drastically and she's idolizing him for it. In both cases, the object of their affection did/does not return it. The parallel is quite clear.

- and.....Serpico + Casca (OHHHHHH YEAH, I said it! LMAO! I obviously have no proof or logical reasoning on this one but I definitely pondered the possibility. Once Casca gets her memory back, she will hopefully be among the gang. So why shouldn't Serpico gets some love!? LOL)

Well, at least you're having fun. The likeliness of this occurring is essentially nonexistent. What about Roderick, by the way? Shouldn't he get some love as well?

Another plot point I'd like to bring up on the possibility of the Guts + Farnese relationship is the idea that Farnese might eventually become the one that helps Guts control the berserker armor. Some of you had already mentioned the possibility that Farnese with her new ethereal body might become crucial in bringing back Guts from the darkness in later episodes. So just imagine how romantic and awesome it would be to have Farnese on Guts' back during a big battle, helping him. Two lovers fighting side by side in a crucial war. Now THAT'S bad-ass romance :slan: Casca would not be able to help Guts in pivotal dark moments like that and her fighting skills are not even close to that of Guts', so watching his back is technically impossible.

Farnese is not a warrior. She's grown incredibly over the years, and I'm sure as I always was that she'll do important things in the future, but she will never be able to fight side by side with Guts like Casca once did. You say that Casca will not be able to help Guts in the future, but what is that based on? Who's to say how her fighting skill could evolve in Elfhelm? Maybe she'll acquire new equipment and new skills, like other characters have in the past?

Besides, for now Schierke is the only one qualified to help Guts with the armor, and it does not look like that's about to change. Farnese is still very much a novice when it comes to magic. Oh, and do I have to remind you once more that it's always the thought of Casca that prompts Guts to return to his senses? And that they have a son together who's playing an increasingly important role in the story?

Nope, not trolling at all. I brought the evidence forward. You just need to open your eyes and read. Guts and Casca will most likely not be together once or if she gets her memory back. I'm 90% sure of this. Obviously I can't be 100% certain since Miura might go the lame obvious route with having their love "triumph", but that's just bad story-telling and wishful thinking. I do not think Miura would not take back the things he wrote in volume 33. You guys really need to pay attention to the dialogue more. Be more open minded.

You brought nothing forward except your misconceptions. Now, please don't resort to insults against the author and/or story because they don't follow your ill-conceived notions. Lame, bad story-telling, wishful thinking? If anything, that applies to what you're proposing.

As for my rant about Serpico and Casca, that's just MY wishful thinking :P LOL! So yeah, take that part of my comment with a grain of salt.
