Will Guts have to be just looking?


U will only see Guts looking in ur dream, It is the most unlikely that Guts will stand and watch. Cmon how many time had he brave danger and escape death. Even if he had been permanently injured by Slann, he will stand FIGHT! all way until he or his enemy drop

btw, will that armor improved Guts overall skill or would it grant supernatural ability together with his DS? It is very obvious that Miura is planning to give Guts a new armor else he wouldnt need to let slann smash his armor into pieces!

Since i do not hv YA, just ask that wat is the colour of the armor? If it wasnt black then Black swordsman had to change name

It piss me off when I see weaklings, it make me want to crush them

** I think Flora will be quite alright. If not, Guts won't be able to get his new armor.
I'd be more concerned about Guts being healed.
Ok, so I leave and come back....

Umm, Guts is severely wounded now without his armor.
Then who's gonna fight the apostles?
SK alone?
Or along with Serpico ,Isidro and Schierke's magic?
Will Guts have to be just looking?

** I think Flora will be quite alright. If not, Guts won't be able to get his new armor.
Maybe Skully is not alone. The fire on the tree could  really be the manifestation of a fire elemental. Do you think that Flora is the kind of person to stay idle while a close friend face the hosts of hell?. Not likely even if the strain of the summoning could (and possibily will) kill her.

I think Zoddo’s only there to settle old scores.

1000 years earlier…

Zoddy: “Damn, lady. You got a lotta weeds around here, but not so much I couldn’t handle it. *flexes* So, where my money at?”

Flora: “You did a good job Zoddy, here’s a gold coin.”

Zodder: “…”

Skull Kid: “Flora, Flora, I’m done repainting the house and cleaning out the latrines! No need to pay me, the responsibility was reward enough! Thank you so much!”

Flora: “Oh Skully, you’re such a good little boy.” *kisses Skully on the cheek*

Skull Kid: *blushes*

Zodd Boy: “I swear, someday I’m going to burn this fucking place to the ground.”

*Exit Flora*

Skull Kid: “Hey Zodd, isn’t Flora totally hot!?”

Zoddo Mini: “Gross dude! When we’re grown up, she’ll be like, 40 or something.”

Skull Kid: “Yeah, well I’d still do her!”


That’s why Zoddo’s really there. Let’s bet on Griffith’s ignorance. You know, because a former God of Karma and Fate that weaved the events of the world like Griffith probably doesn’t know about Flora or other possible threats to him. I think he got Godot’s address from the yellow pages. And it’s not like Zoddo would tell him about it or anything if he knew. I’m sure my above scenario is correct and Zoddo just “went out for cigarettes” as far as Griffith knows.

New theory: Berserk will end when Griffith slips on a bar of soap in the shower and breaks his neck.

hmmm... I vaguely remember mentioning something about brick armor.  However, I'm a tad busy with other projects at the moment.

if i was gay youd probably be getting something up the ass right now.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

Wow... this does not bode well for Guts.  It looks like he'll have to rely more on Farnese, Serpico, and co. for protection until he gets healed by Flora.  However, since the mansion burned down, does this indicate that Flora has been killed off or that she ran away?  It seems he needs to get healed fast or else he's toast.  

This chapter sounds fascinating since Guts has not been in such a helpless state for a long time.  I like this new turnaround in his character where he has to rely on others instead of being totally independent...


I was just reading through this entire thread and this caught my eye...you're absolutely rught about Guts having to rely on others for help. This time he really has no choice with his wounds not being able to heal on their own. Suspense is building....not that it's anything new with Berserk in general. But this is a deadly new era opening up with Griffith and his powerful army of knights and followers.

Is that the reason also y Zodd chose to be a apostle?

Saiyajin, you have just been promoted to God, you magnificent bastard.

anyways, did i miss something or did Guts just lose Flora's stay-fresh seal on the Brand? And for some reason, I got the feeling of finality between skully and zodd. though i dont think Miura would kill off either one of these characters at this crucial point in the story, itd be a great surprise, wouldnt it?
now where's 223? ;D

Funny you should mention the whole finality between Skullknight and Zodd...I was thinking about that myself... Also something else I was thinking about was the true relationship between Flora and Skullknight...I think they were former lovers and for what ever reason have split on good terms over the course of time and have been battling the God Hand's. Thats just my take... Anyways, I am glad you guys and gals like the scans!  ;D

Yeah, that chapter kicked ass from front to back. Thanks a lot. Anyway, the new armor is sure beast-like, and it looks like it covers Guts' face too. Also, Wally pointed out that Skully is missing a spike. Now I finally know what he threw at Slan in 219. I guess we just aren't very observant considering it's been missing for three chapters already. =) It also looks like Flora WAS talking to Skully about his smile, very cool. Someone confirm or deny this please.

Hum, I was not thinking of the last combat between Skully and Zodd, but maybe that's the point. And that's why Zodd came here, to settle the fight with skully. Or maybe is he jalous of the relationship between flora and skully..

Don't know.. but very interesting

Awesome, awesome chapter. I don't know what Miura did differently with his normal routine on the art, but I'd love it if he kept doing it.  

The armor, while looking indeed extremely "Beast-like", reminds me of Grunbeld's.  Regarding the armor covering his face... It's still unclear at this point, but comparing page 2 and 3, it looks like the upper part (where the "V" design starts) would go up to his chin.  On page 2, looks like we're seeing a helmet. I'm assuming it's connected to the rest of the armor from the back, so we wouldn't see a connecting piece in the front view (pg 3).  I've been drawing designs on paper since I saw the armor  8). I'll post one if I get anything neat or even feasible looking.

Oh, and Skully can fly afterall.  And all this time we thought it was just a magic horse...

Well he must drink a lot of RED BULL. Now here is a thought...what if when we do get to see the armor it looks like a "Dark Hawk". Now that would be a little bit more then just a coincedence if you ask me. I have a hunch it will look something like that. What do you guys think?

Well, I think we know that the amror does look bird-like in any case.

Hmm, the picture of Skully where he senses something does look similar to some of the pictures we've seen in the past, where Guts feels the "evil" of the apostles or God Hand.

Oh, and Skully can fly afterall.  And all this time we thought it was just a magic horse...

I wonder, if that means that Skully can use magic to some extent? After all, didn't Shiruke say that real skilled magic users can fly?
