Re: Chapter 187 mk. III

Re: Chapter 187 mk. III

Wow!

I love chapters like this... slow paced and nice. Gatts washing up Casca's 'accident'? I never thought I'd see that for sure...

pleasepleasepleaseplease Cronus, the translations of the last issues... I am getting SO desperate!

The snowman fight was cool ;D, I always thought the demons looked a little rounded and 'cute', but covered in snow they were just hilarious.

I love the way the beast of shadows kept changing, and I can't wait to hear the dialogue.

And lets not forget... Pakk in the grip of nightmares... too cute. ;D
 
Re: Chapter 187 mk. III

Great chapter!!! I can't wait to read the what the beast says. I got a feeling that maybe the Skullknight might appear in one of the next chapters while guts and caska are resting by the camp fire. It was also surprisingly funny with caskas accident and puck with the and the little creature.

Re: Chapter 187 mk. III


Oh yea walter, wasn't enough putting just the logo?
That skullknight pic makes everything a bit "odd".
At least put it near scenes where gatsu isn't serious... :)
But anything's ok...as long as we get to see our hero
......its FREE...Dont complain.

Re: Chapter 187 mk. III

it's great to see that the nightmare or guts' "hatred" has become smaller (not as large as before), but it really disturbs me that it takes the shape of a dog -- which reminds me of Gambino's dog....this is essential to the psyche of Guts, and it would be fun to discuss this, i guess

Yeah, I thought about the same thing. I'm not sure if it's a coincidence or not... ^^;

well, the state of caska is somewhat comparable to Gambino's, at least of right now....i'm gonna need some time to figure out my theory about the doggy thing...so further discussion would really speed my brain up (hey, too much work makes eintrigga a dull boy) ;)

Re: Chapter 187 mk. III

Well, it would be a good idea for a theory, but keep in mind that the dogs were more or less sub-background characters.

I also think the only reason its in the shape of a small "dog" is that Guts has more or less overcome his original fear, or sin I guess you could say that was manifested in Volume 14-17 with his journey. The beast has shrunk, check out how big it is in volume 17.

Refution of this : Beast grew in size as it bit Casca's neck. Symbolic? or just amorphic?
 
Re: Chapter 187 mk. III

I enjoyed the slow pace of the chapter after all the griffiths' stuff lately. It's nice to see Guts and Caska having a peaceful moment by the fire.

Thanks for the scans I was eagerly awaiting them.( Vol 22 is going to be quite nice to get in Dec. )

Do you think so?
I'd say that Guts = Gambino (yet again).
Gambino lost a leg, and without his armor, it becomes very apparent that Guts lost his left arm.

like father, like son? makes sense...much more sense then my previous post (i told you guys i'm rather "dull as of the moment).
however, this psyche thing shouldn't be this easy to figure out, it seems to me that it's a lot more convoluted then simply father/son --> gambino's dog = hatred, regret and symbols of displacement

maybe make a list of what we know about guts, gambino, and gambino's dog? seems obvious but that should open up some new possibilities

Re: Chapter 187 mk. III

Thank you Cronus!!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Ooookay, am I seeing things here or is the beast starting to set Gatts up to become an apostle? I mean.... Gatts already has a Behelit, and the way the beast talks about there being a use for Casca since she is a sacrifice... and that way Gatts can be closer to Griffith...

Is this the kind of temptation that started with Griffith in his jail cell?? Or am I just imagining??


heheheh I love this...

Does anyone else think that the shadow beast could actually be someone from the God Hand  :-/?  It wouldn't surprise me if one of them was screwing with Gatsu  ::)

I don't think Guts could become an apostle.The only person he seems to greatly care for is Caska hence she would be the only one worthy of sacrifice. But as we saw with the Count,when he wanted to sacrifice Guts it wasn't even an option because he was already branded just as Caska is (not to mention he wasn't even close to being a loved one).
 
Re: Chapter 187 mk. III

If Guts would use the Behelit he couldn't use Caska as a sacrafice but he could use Puck or maybe Rickert.

Re: Chapter 187 mk. III

i thought of gambino as well, although i think i decided that the symbolism there is more caska = dog. or gatts = wolf. most likely, it's all of these things. & yes, i agree with walter, it's almost definately a symbolic growth.

thanks cronus, you're the man

Re: Chapter 187 mk. III

The beast of shadow already has made an attempt to get Guts to use his beherit once, I believe.
Technically Gattsu doesn't exist as far as God Hand is concerned (he's griffith's sacrfice)... so could he even use the beherit?

(chances are this question was asked and answered months ago, but what the hell)
 
Re: Chapter 187 mk. III

Not exactly. It just looked at Guts' Beherit and said that he may actually become a _real_ monster like "his friend" did.
But that remains pretty vague. Casca is already branded.

Re: Chapter 187 mk. III

oh, sorry for criticizing the logo, but i got confused on page 3 because i thought for a second that gatts was attacking a little spirit guy. i'm a silly person, at times.

Re: Chapter 187 mk. III
