You are also forgetting that at the time guts met Puck the eclipse had already happened and that contributed to see the elves and the evil spirits. And with this episode reinforces that Guts was already able to see elves even before the worlds started to merge.ilj said:Quite interesting story. I can't wait to see the conclusion of these 3 episodes.
BTW I think humans could easily see elves those time considering the first meeting of Guts and Puck. But Guts was the first one to see chichi? Isn't it something inconsistent, Miura san? ^^
We'll probably record on Monday this time. Busy week-end.IncantatioN said:Are we going to hear a new podcast this weekend guys?
It's not that clear cut, especially since it's been established that elves were getting rarer and rarer before the worlds were merged. It's perfectly consistent if the people detained in the cell were from a predominantly human area or simply didn't believe in "fairy tales" and refused to acknowledge the supernatural.ilj said:BTW I think humans could easily see elves those time considering the first meeting of Guts and Puck.

Yeah, I started the transcription tonight. And while I'm no translator, the bits that I'm picking up on just with a basic understanding of Japanese are ... well, it's a great episode, folks. These past two pages are a testament to how amazingly economical Miura is—how much he can accomplish in just a few pages with a new character /Vampire_Hunter_Bob said:This is probably going to be my favorite episode for a while.
I don't think what you propose sounds likely at all.Rodrigo said:I think that it might be something worth talking about on the next SkullKast!!
I definitely would like to see the same, but something has me feeling otherwise. Doesn't guts say he doesn't like elves because they're weak? Wouldn't chich being restored or healing contradict that idea that guts has in his head?Walter said:One more thing about this episode guys, I don't think we've seen the last of Chich. Plants are often resilient. I imagine that if Guts finds a way to return the flower to the grove, we may see one last glimmer of Chich restored, or in the process of healing. Just a hunch.
Cheers to that.Walter said:Could be as simple a thing as he plants her, but leaves before he sees that she's begun to be restored. It could be something shown only to the reader.
Anyway, here's hoping.
She's chained to her flower though. But I think there could be enough of the sentiment you're looking for if Guts encounters elves similar to Chich in Elfhelm.Chaos said:Funny thought: Say Chich does heal, unbeknownst to Guts, and finds her way back to Elfhelm.
I really don't think so.Rodrigo said:Since Studio 4°C has cut out Guts' childhood from the first Golden Age film, is it entirely possible that they did so because they're planning to make a separate film at some point in the future about Guts' early, pre-Band of the Hawk years?
Agreed, I've been thinking along the same lines, down to the possibility of restoration without him knowing. I can even see the panel in my head, her waving goodbye as he walks away in the distance... One can hope! Although... She did tell him that she'd die if the flower lost all of its leaves...Walter said:One more thing about this episode guys, I don't think we've seen the last of Chich. Plants are often resilient.

It's not the first time Guts encountered an Elf. He used to have them as a late-night snack.Rodrigo said:This episode also raises a question - with the introduction of Chich, can we say with certainty that she is in fact the first non-human creature Guts ever encounters? Not Zodd, but Chich.
