If we stick with the Falconia side of things for a while, do you think Rickert will end up coming face-to-face with Griffith again, or do you think Miura has other plans for Rickert while he's in Falconia?

I honestly picture rickert getting a tour, similar to how mule did when he first met up with the band of the falcon, and it potentially switching perspectives as he comes into contact with Griffith in some fashion, be it a direct meeting or maybe, for example, seeing him on his throne  :femto:

The way we're reminded of Rickert's predicament regarding Griffith makes me think that yes, it will be addressed very soon. I think it'd be a missed opportunity for it not to be at least broached now.

It may have taken Guts and Company a good while to get to Elfhelm, perhaps they will be able to utilize the tree for speed travel? Didn't the Moon child use it as a passage way?

Agreed.

I can't imagine Rickert joining the new Band of the Falcon, so what do you think will happen to him if he says, "No," to Griffith? Off to the dungeons, released back into the population, or something else?

Keep in mind that the Moonlight Boy is a "superior being". It may not be possible for Guts, or those in his party, to travel using the World Spiral-Tree.

Rickert wouldn't expressly have to join the Band. He could just live within Falconia's walls, which is what I expect he'll do.

That's true. He couldn't very well serve as our eyes and ears in Falconia if he was locked in a dungeon somewhere.

I noticed a colosseum-like structure in the spread page of Falconia. Maybe Miura won't be able to stop himself from using the old manga trope of tournament battles in the future. Guts will possibly be forced to fight in the arena, perhaps?

I think that's framing the circumstance in the worst possible way. But I think it's likely that we'll see some apostle on monster or some such thing happen as sport for spectators.

Or willingly—a big entrance.  :guts:

I'm guessing the world of Berserk is so full of things Miura yet has to show us, that he really has no need to stretch things with drawn out fighting tournaments. He already did a tournament-sequence back in volume 9 and maybe there will be some fighting in Falconias "colosseum" in the future... but most certainly not in the shounen-manga-way you are hinting at.
Rock Concert Manual #237:
Taking the audience to a jungian journey into the collective unconscious by using the shadow as a metaphor for the primal self that gets repressed by the modern persona... and also by using an underground setting and labyrinth office design to represent both: the depths of the psyche and the dungeon-like isolation of our increasingly mechanistic society which prevents people from finding satisfying work or meaningful connections with others.

Anytime I see anything but the hiatus thread in the most recent spot, I get a false sense of excitement.

Don't worry they said they'll do a new thread called Berserk - resume. You'll know pretty quick when it happens!  :slan:

I check for news of the series resuming every day at least twice. So trust me, when it's back there will be a new thread. The news certainly won't be placed in a thread marked "hiatus."

I want fireworks in the banner the day it happens. That or Skull Knight with a party hat. Or the Schnoz with a party hat. Yeah thats better, much better. And confetti! No party without confetti.

I'm sure that can be arranged, right...right?

Make me a decent confetti'd animated GIF with the SK.net logo up top and I will do it.

I do like the sound of that. Ah, but i guess it's too late to dream of a fancy castle or something.

Thank you, young lady, i couldn't do this without you, my own experiments on Skull Knight were rather... disturbing

Very nice, Rendarg! :ganishka: With regards to the Schnoz balloons, I'd have to try it out, but I'm digging the understated nature of Skully's celebration. It's definitely in line with his character. :badbone:

I just read your comics today. You really have a very deep understanding of his character :badbone:
btw love your Slan, always with the cigarette :slan:

Well, we wouldn't necessarily need Schnoz-balloons (lol i like that word) on the Skull Knight banner itself, there is still room on the top center of the page, for maybe 3-4 balloons to go up in the sky in a loop. I mean it's 9 month or even 10 now, i don't even know anymore, we really should celebrate it when it happens.
