Shortly before Albion
« on: October 25, 2002, 09:09:18 PM »
Guts meets SK. What does SK say to him? In the German translation it's something about that the events(mainly the birth ceremony/party) can't be stopped, since this world is only like a reflection of the actual events(maybe in the other dimension?). He also says that Guts is maybe more then just a reflection like all other people on the world, since he lives halfway in the "shadowrealm"(the GH dimension).
Is that an accurate translation of the original?

I'm guessing you mean Chapter 142.  This is the translation of that conversation I have.  I can't say for sure just how accurate it is, but it talks about what you mentioned:


Pg. 98

Skull Knight: I was following the scent of evil, who knew I would see you here…?

You have a long life, struggler!

Puck: Hey, you two know each other?

I thought you didn’t have any friends, who knew you were friends with a monster…

Ah, I'm not being prejudiced about monsters.

This guy is so lonely, please be friends with him.  My name is Puck…

Guts: Shut up!

Skull Knight: A fairy?
     
You have some interesting things.

Puck: Huh?

This guy looks like…

Skull Knight: Haha…it's been two years…

But, we do have some fate.

Pg. 99

Guts: Haven’t seen you for a long time mister.

What are you doing at a place like this?

Skull Knight: I said it before; I'm chasing those who are not human for revenge.

I know exactly what's in front of me at the place I'm going…

Guts: Apostles…

There are apostles…around here?

Skull Knight: Maybe…
     
Maybe yes…
     
And the place I'm going to…
     
The scary part is…
     
It’s the same place you're going to…

Guts: Hey…

Wait a minute!
     
What is that suppose to mean?

Does that mean…!?

Guts: Could it be…

Those people…
     
God Hand is there?

Skull Knight: Those people can exist anywhere in this world.
     
As long as any human has a strong thought, they can be anywhere.

But at the same time, if there's a place where the mind is too strong, they cannot bring their bodies along with them.

Therefore, you can also say they don't exist in anywhere.

Guts: You're saying stuff that no one understands again!
     
I don't have time to play mind games with you!

Skull Knight: But there's always exception…

When the strong thought exceeds the boundary, the beings that belong to God Hand…
     
Can only get a body once every 1000 years…

Did you see a shining bird in your dream?

I believe everyone in this world saw that as well…

That's the hint…

Pg. 100

Skull Knight: In this world,
     
Representing the hawk…
     
Someone will appear.

Puck: Guts?

Guts: Hawk…

You're talking about a hawk…?

Pg. 101

Skull Knight: Let me ask you a question…

The woman who was with you before, where is she now?

Who knows…
     
Maybe she's at the place where you are going right now?

Guts: What?

Skull Knight: It's really like that, eh?

Guts: Hey!

Why are you talking to yourself?

How did you know that incident?  Please explain it to me!
   
Puck: (Please explain it clearly)

Skull Knight: The power of God will arrive in this world.
     
It's a very powerful mind

It's a god incident…
     
Something about God's land will draw it out as an object.

Guts: Something to draw it out…?

Skull Knight: Everyone will follow the blood to the land of god, they all want the “Hawk of Light.”

Then, you and the woman will be there in the center.
     
It's just like drawing a picture.

Eclipse.
 
Eclipse…

It's happening.

Pg. 102

Puck: Worry, fear, anger, it's all in Guts' heart and it's coming out!

But…
     
This is…?

This feeling is…

Guts: You're saying…that picture…

Will appear?

That scene…      

Will appear again?

Pg. 103

Puck: This is…
     
Happiness?

Skull Knight: It's very sad…
     
Humans alone can't change God's plan…

Guts: What?

Skull Knight: This world is like the moon’s shadow in the water.

It's impossible to make the shadow of the moon disappear.
     
Because as long as the moon is up in the sky, a shadow will always appear in the water.
     
That's certain…

What's following is the dark shadow…
     
That dark shadow is like the death of the sun…
     
It covers the whole land…
     
Guts: Does that mean…

The ending is going to be the same?

Skull Knight: We're still here, that's the best evidence.

Pg. 104

Guts: We’re already in…
     
This big event.

Skull Knight: In this world…

It happens as with the moon’s shadow on the water.

Puck: Guts?

Guts: I don't care what's a shadow and stuff…
     
It's my own decision to go to my destination; no one can control me!

You have forgotten already?  I will never die!
     
Didn't you give me another name…

“Struggler?”

You always have all those…
     
Weird things to talk about.

There was once a monster, who proudly told me my future; he said I will never be able to run away from death, I guess he meant the Eclipse then.

You're the same!

But can you say it more clearly!?

It doesn't matter how bloody it is…
     
Even though we lost our hands and legs,
     
Me and Casca…

Will stay alive!

Pg. 105

Guts: Then…
     
At that time, I really did borrow your power…
     
But this time…
     
I will use my own power to save that person!

Puck: Although he's really pumped…

It's only anger…

So complex…

Skull Knight: Ha!

Pg. 106

Skull Knight: True, during the time of the incident, although there’s only a small chance, anything can happen.

You can take the risk with all you’ve got.

Even though the Eclipse is happening…
     
The calculation maybe different.
     
There's always a limit to things.

That brand on your neck…
     
Might be something that will save you.

Guts: What?

Skull Knight: I said that before, since you have that brand, you are living in another world…
     
It means you are living in a world of spirit and humans.

Although it's just a small step…
     
You're living in a world that is outside the human world.

Maybe you're not a shadow in the water…
     
But a fish swimming in the water.
     
But…
     
I have to warn you…
     
Are you going to fight the war, or to save that person?
     
You can only do one.

It's hard to do both.

I'll meet you again in the land of god…
 
Farewell…

Puck: He's the Skull Knight…

(I still don't understand)

Why didn't you ask him to give you a ride?

Hey. Huh?

Pg. 107

Puck: Forget it…

Maybe I'm too sensitive?
     
That Skull Knight, seemed like he had a fairy’s scent…

Guts: Saving Casca…  
     
Is the most important thing to do now.

(But, if that guy appears in front of me…
     
At that time, I will…)

Puck: He's my villa, Isidro.  And *he's* my main house, Guts.
