Scans will be up in 3 days. That is all.  ;D

We r all looking very forward for that!  :D

Very interesting chapter, never in any part of the manga had the chapter gone into such climax!  8)


Prickles penetrates his body, reforming his bones, making the fight continue...

Does this mean that the armor had the ability to heal or...?  ::)

Interesting that the former owner of Guts' armor 'wielded a sword strangely similiar to the Skullknight's." Perhaps that is yet another clue to where Skully came from and his origins.

In 226, the way of how the Guts' armor change in form of shape, and Guts can easily shot his cannon (some the armor disappear), and now the armor suck (kind of) into the bone and heal the wound. it makes me start thinking the armor can't be taken off that easy, I think the armor can only be taken of if the owner die or the enemy die after the battle.

It sounds like chapter 227 has left an open spot for some speculation, unlike 226. Is Miura taking a break after this one? Or is the size of volume 26 still growing? It's already 10 chapters long :)

The previous man who used Guts' armor died. We see his silhouette, and he wielded a sword strangely similar to the Skull Knight's...
[/center]
If we were to presume that this man who "died" was Skull Knight, how would it be possible for Skully to still be around? I guess it all determines how you look at the word "died". Perhaps the man that was Skull Knight died that day, in the sense his human form was vanquished and he was reborn as the spectre, Skull Knight? I'm just not sure how he would have actually died.

However, Guts's body is over his limit....and few of his bones collapse (i've understood an arm bone and a foot bone)... But the armor don't let him run away from battle.... Prickles penetrates his body, reforming his bones, making the fight continue...
[/center]
If that were the case, and his body can be repaired, perhaps that could keep him going on for hundreds, maybe thousands of years? This could be the reason why our very own Skull Knight is, seemingly, immortal. If his armour were to bear similar characteristics with the one Guts is wearing now, surely his body would never age, because the "Prickles" would be healing and repairing his body. Skull Knight certainly knows a trick or two about controlling Od and doing flashy things that mortals couldn't do. What's to say he hasn't mastered the benefits of the armour and his Od to keep his body alive for so many years? It seems to be that this is our best lead towards figuring out why Skull Knight is still alive.

Looking at the heroical style of fighting of Guts, Schierke blames herself for this....But Flora's voice penetrates his mind, saying: "If only you are capable to make him understand the right way for controlling the od".....
[/center]
It seems Flora is, like Roshinu, still alive!! :P Flora going to be the Obe-Wan Kenobi of Berserk from now on!

I can't see how Guts can control his Od when when The Berserk Armour is consistently raping his entire body and remaining completely in control. Maybe he needs to see an image of Casca or something in his head to awaken him, or make him snap out of it? Right now it seems to me that Guts couldn't do the things his body is doing now if he didn't have the Beast at his side. Its potency is a lot more unruly than anything we've seen from Guts, even in the Lost Children Arc. So maybe it's a good idea to keep him in this Berserk state until GURUMBERUDO is destroyed.

Scans will be up in 3 days. That is all.  ;D

I can't wait ^_^ I'll be colouring that Apostle GURUMBERUDO for sure!! 8)

Is Miura taking a break after this one?
Nope, not yet. There will be a new episode in the next issue of Young Animal. And it looks like we may also learn what Miura meant a couple of weeks ago when he said that he had a lot of work this summer.

Er... Just because he's not taking a break, it doesn't mean volume 26 will be longer. ^^;

It already was 10 episode (they're episodes, guys, not "chapters" ^^;; ) long with episode 226, actually. Chances are this is the beginning of volume 27.

If that's the case, then any predictions for the front cover of Volume 26? ;)

Haaaa, french speaking people, it's been a long time and it is always a pleasure de parler un peu sa langue natale avec des gens pleins de bonne volont... ;)

It seems to be that this is our best lead towards figuring out why Skull Knight is still alive.

Maybe the armor don't really heal the body but keep the spirit alive, thus making the owner becoming a wraith inhabiting an empty armor when the body wear out?

I have a thought to add to this. I don't think it is right or wrong, but something worth posting.

Has anyone ever thought that Zodd and SK are really Guts and Griffith, possibly in the parallel dimension?

Guts is very comparable to Zodd. Huge sword, 2 forms (Guts and berserker Guts, human zodd and apostle zodd).

Griffith is slightly less comparable to SK but...both great knights, powerful armor, mostly on a horse in battle, SK if he is Gaiseric, was or wanted to be a king, as does/did Griffith.

Now Zodd and SK are friends from long ago who now are enemies in some sort of way. As are Guts and Griffith. Zodd is stronger than SK, as it seems in raw power, the same holds true for Guts seeming to have more raw fighting power.

These ideas maybe idiotic, but without better pasts i guess speculation will reigh supreme for quite sometime thanks to Miura.

Really? Is this only for berserk, or for all the mangas out there?

Anyway, sounds like an awesome chapter as usual. I hope we get to see more armor-clad Guts style ass-kicking, before the fight ends. ^_^

And Guts is finally gonna learn how to use ki... Sounds like a good excuse for the story to switch to Griffith. ;)

Really?
Well, yeah. ^^;
There are "chapters" ("sh") as well, like the "Lost Children" chapter, for example. That's several episodes.
Basically:
Several episodes ("wa") -> one chapter ("sh")
Several chapters ("sh") -> one part(/arc?) ("hen")

i think we can't really say now who is stronger between Zodd and Grunbeld.
let's see if Guts still have any difficulties with the armor to kill Grunbeld, besides his wounds.
Seeing the last fight between Guts (without the new armor) and Zodd, we could say there wasn't a huge difference of power. So i think we can say that Guts, unwounded and wearing the armor would tear down Zodd in pieces...

maybe still early for conclusions though.

This is ridiculously retarded debate, but did any of you ever think of asking Zodd how he feels about his strength in comparison to other apostles? His little monologue in Volume 17 might give you kids some insight, if you'd bother reading it.

I got it, I thought it was quite funny actually. :D

Here, let me show it to you.

Us: "Mr Zodd, could you perhaps tell us how you feel about your strength in comparison with other apostles?"

Zodd: "YOU SHOULD HAVE READ VOLUME 17 YOU LITTLE PIECES OF SHIT!! HERE, NOW YOU CAN COMPARE MY SUPERIOR STRENGTH FOR YOURSELF!!"

Oh well, not everyone's got the same sense of humor I guess. ;)

2 pages and this topics already turned to shit? record-setting stuff here folks, congrats.

id add my two cents on any sort of speculating for this particular episode, but im afraid id only join this downhill snowball.
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.
