My posts are better.
Deci said:I guess this answers a couple of questions for us. Griffith does transform, I was wrong, but not into a giant bird like many thought (thankfully).
No, not thought, because he's already taken the form of a giant bird on several occasions as has been reiterated before. =)
Also, we shouldn't limit what we think Griffith can do in general. Just because he does one thing doesn't mean he can't do another.
Deci said:Also, Griffith is capable of becoming Femto in the material world! I can't help but wonder how and why it happened. Did he become Femto for an exchange with Ganishka, or was it the appearance of Skull Knight with the beherit sword that did it? I'm leaning more towards the appearance of Skull Knight, but that's all just gut feeling.
My hunch is the opposite, like Skully was waiting for him to transform, perhaps thinking it the moment of weakness, before making his move. Seems like a one-shot, now or never, kind of moment. I also don't think Skully could force Griffith to do anything, though we'll see in this and the next episode (unless we switch back to the boat =).
Deci said:I wonder if Zodd and Rakshas will get involved? I keep going back and forth on the issue, I mean, they are there and they both are deeply dedicated to protecting Griffith... but man, since he became Femto it's possible he'll handle this on his own. Though if Griffith/Femto is inside Ganishka's mind, as I theorized he might do, maybe he's actually vulnerable at the moment, which would explain why Skull Knight decided to show at this exact moment. In that case Zodd and Rakshas must do something.
My money would be on Rakshas, Zodd looks like he ate a shit sandwich that he made in his pants. In the chat we were calling this perhaps Skully's finest moment... but also, possibly his last.
Personally, I'm thrilled, I've been waiting for Griffith to kick his ass since volume 21.
Deci said:Haha, my head's spinning with the possibilities here. If Femto can exist in the material realm, can the rest of the God Hand?
We've already seen that they can manifest themselves, of course not like Griffith/Femto since he's unique even among them, having been reborn into the material world. But after this, who knows what the world will be like, perhaps Griffith is going to help them break on through to the other side.
Deci said:Man, this is intense. And we have to wait ~7 more days! I'm not sure if I've been more excited about an episode... well... ever. Good job, Mr. Miura.
It certainly is, I'm still blown away. Skully may have never looked cooler, and Femto never so fucking alien and sinister, all in the same shot.
