/Very/ awesome news. Lets hope it doesn't get snuck back in.

Somewhat off topic, but the bill was rejected.

Sweet.  Maybe we'll get that tentacle action we've all been hoping for now.  :ganishka: In all seriousness, I'm glad Berserk won't have to worry about restricting it's stories punctuality due to politics.

It would certainly be odd if Puck started wearing shorts 35 volumes into the series.

Looks like Isma might indeed be some kind of mermaid, as I'd guessed. The villagers are revealing their true nature to Guts & co (they look quite a bit like the monstrous sea cucumber's tentacles), and there's also talk of a rebirth ceremony for the Sea God.

Berserk will of course be present in the next issue of YA.

I wonder what the giant eye is that we see speaking. It's not one of the sea cucumbers. It looks like a tortoise face to me...

Also, I noticed on that last pic that Guts' DS is already bloody from battle, which means it won't just end on a cliffhanger of action. We'll see some sea cucumber juice spilled in the ep as well :guts:

Transformed villager.

A scene reminiscent of the Dragon Slayer's introduction in the inn in volume 1? :carcus:

I hope we get a glimpse of the sea god, or his form somehow.

I like how the villagers have leech mouths... or is that the mouth of a squid?  :???:

Sea cucumber, though clearly those are more toothy since they're monsters. Squids have beaks. I think the closest would be a lamprey.

The way those transformed villagers look really creeps me out for some reason, I think it's the mouth. Looks great!

Isma is adorable. I can't wait 'til she gets to meet Guts and the rest of the gang. I'm personally still hoping she ends up joining the group.

It would be nice if she would speak about herself, just to get if she is a post world-merging being or if she simply was mermaid before everything.

I also wonder if she's going to join the Guts' party after the end of this sea God revival episodes.
She may be a good guide against the new sea's hidden dangers.

Berserk will of course be present in the next issue of YA.

Great!!

Based on the array of shots we have of her here in the previews (particularly the one of her swimming), and the enigmatic way 312 ends, I think it's possible we'll get a bit of Isma's backstory in this episode. That's what I'm hoping for anyway.

wild-ass speculation: what if the reason the monstrous villagers leave her alone is because this evil sea thingy intends her to be an integral part of its ceremony?

Possible, since she's apparently a pariah on the island. But I'm not sure they have the means to overpower her (she's seemed quite resourceful so far).

It looks like the baddie with the visible eye is reaching/coming through a door or portal of some sort, then in the next image Guts appears to be walking through a door with a, as noted, bloody Dragon Slayer. So, my big prediction: that particular monster is not going to appear in 314. =)

I wish I had more to add, but I'm just looking forward to this as much everyone else.

If what Griff is predicting is true, I love seeing Guts make such short work of these monsters. I also wanna see if it mirrors the first volume bar scene like Aaz mentioned, that would be pretty awesome. :ubik:

I wonder what kind of fighter Isma will be, maybe she'll fight alongside her elementals! :ganishka:

The villager looks insanely creepy.  That mouth is just begging to slowly eat your arm.  Yech!  

Can't wait for this!

Great news on the episode, the bill, also the previews are awesome.

I'm speculating that we will find the reason why Isma is left alone by the villagers

Well, even if Isma is a mermaid, that doesn't mean she's harmless:

It's more of an observation than a prediction. :iva:

They're probably just not powerful enough to do anything to her. Remember the symbol on her door (which could act as a ward against evil), among other things.
