Hey, even apostles must have some honor left, don't they? Grunbeld won't fight a defenseless Guts, especially now he knows who he is.

Well, if the apostles are like Zodd, then amybe. However, remember that Zodd was still going to kill Guts the frist time they meet when he couldn't fight anymore, so maybe Grunbeld will still try to fight and kill Guts in his weakened state.

Through strength I gain power
Through power, I gain victory
Through victory, my chains are broken

Oh hell yeah. This story is getting hotter than the weather!

A legend fighting a legend. The next chapter will surely be great. But will this battle end with Guts defeating Grunbeld? It doesn't seem right. Grunbeld seems to be one of the more major players to Griffiths camp..so why kill him off so suddenly? Maybe it's just a tease.

Hopefully Guts will hang in there and live his sword up to its name.

The new YA just arrived at my door :), here's my summary of this cool chapter:

Schierke freaks out when she sees that Flora's house is on fire and starts running towards it, Serpico and Isidro follow her. Guts tells them to stop her. Now Guts notices the bunch of apostles moving towards Flora's house in the distance. He charges one of them and buries his sword deep inside his shoulder. The apostle is surprised at this but he grabs the sword and simply throws Guts away with it. The apostle then transforms into some huge and hideous form to finish off Guts, but Skully appears and slices the creature in two. The other apostles wonder who the fuck this Skullface guy is, but one of them says that he saw him at the eclipse and also recognizes Guts as one of their master's sacrifices. Zodd and Grunbeld also make their appearance at this stage and Grunbeld mentions he wants to try out Guts himself. As Grunbeld is ready to take a swing at Guts the scene switches to Schierke blindly moving through the flames searching for Flora. Isidro saves her just in time for the flames to reach her but hurts himself on the head in the process. He starts yelling at her asking what the hell she's doing, and what happened to her magic. But Schierke is far too upset to be able to use her magic and starts crying. Serpico wants to take them out of the house saying that it's impossible to find Flora in these flames. As they're about to leave Schierke suddenly hears Flora's voice in her head telling her to bring the armor to Guts....

OMG, amazing chapter, but I must correct myself here. Grunbeld isn't going to wait for nobody, he's just about to smash puny little Guts with his huge sledgehammer. However, Guts doesn't look completely defenseless yet, he is still able to fight I think (or at least dodge).

And I don't know about the armor, it doesn't look like the old Skully armor. I doesn't even really look like a skull helmet to me. Wait, I'd better shut up and just put up a picture of the armor here.

Wow. That is some evil looking armour. Thanks a lot Mizar ;D Guts is going to have to dodge. Sure the Dragon Slayer could block it, but I'm not sure if Guts will have the vitality to keep blocking. 224 is going to be so fucking great!

I think for Guts it's good he faces Grunbell without armour. Armour could not benefit him only perhaps encumber him.
It's impossible the armour offered any protection from Grunbeld's warhammer or cannon hits.
I also believe it's gonna be very short, at least hurting Grunbeld out of his human form. Guts could not stand a cannon blast thus he has to press constant. Any time-break out could give offer the conveniency for a cannon blast.
And the game plays on people's backs and they don't even have a clue about it, wasting their energy because their attention is distracted by the rulers' game itself.

Do u know the magic abilities of this armor? If u dunno then what make u think so this armor could not stand Grunbeld warhammer(Cannon i may believe), and that the armor will encumber him?

If u are talking about encumbrance , then maybe u should focus on DS!

I was talking about his old armour or any normal armour that can come to mind.
I don't know what super abilities grants Flora's armor so I can't comment on this.
Dragonslayer may encumber but it is Guts good possibility to hurt his foes or at least put them under pressure.It can also be used to parry blows and strikes more effectively than armour.

yeah, he's into that really weird porno you cant send through the mail. i'll be honest it aint cool, creeps out the whole board...

and am i the only one who doesnt like the look of the armor? sorry, but it kinda looks awkward to me. perhaps itll look better when Guts puts it on.
sounds like an amazing chapter. all thats needed now is for Ouji to hurry up with the scans ;)
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.

I agree, it looks like circus. By the way where is he gonna put his bionic canon arm? Maybe he is gonna give it for some mod and trig to his gadget-man rickert.

I don't know Majin, that sounds awfully complicated.  :-X


The armor does look slightly like a skull to me, but I don't think it's up there with Skully's just yet.  It's kind of tough for me to picture Guts wearing something like that, but it'll definitely be interesting to see.  As for its powers, obviously there's something up with it if Flora's that insistant to get it to Guts.  Maybe it won't emcumber him as much as we think.  

Anyway, WOW.  These chapters just keep getting better!   ;D

 ::) or maybe the armor has such great dark magical powers that it allows him to control his prosthetic(?) arm/hand like it were real. ::)

I really wonder what he's going to do about the cannon-arm too. Doesn't look like it'd fit with that armor, so unless his cannon-arm is destroyed in the upcoming fight with Grunbeld, I can't even guess what he's gonna do about it... It'd be sad to see the cannon-arm, that has saved Guts so many times, disappear out of the story through...

But for those saying it looks like Gaiseric's armor, I'm gonna disagree. The eyepieces look identical, yes, but that's it.

You don't even know how that piece of the armor fits yet. It could be that ther underside consists of nother more than a strap or something so it could be worn over the cannon.

Besides, why the hell would be cut the arm off when armor fits together with straps and hooks and stuff, wouldn't it be simpler to just *gasp* remove the gauntlet?

Enough of this armor thing, I m sure that Guts is gonna get this armor soon

I'm more concerned about Flora whereabout, which the heck did she go? Is she dead?

Last but not least! The final battle between Grunbeld and Guts, who will win?  :-\
