I kinda suspected that (based on the title), but it looks like episode 229 will end a "part/chapter/something" of the manga.
And Miura _is_ taking a break, this time. A long one. Episode 230 is due for November 14.


OMG. 7 week?!!  :o

Look like 229 is the end of a very big topic, as such millennium falcon, and maybe Miura will take that 2 months break to start everything anew... but i still cant control my tears...  :'(


Btw, i hope to see Casca and farnese this time,  else there is no hope of seeing them for many days to come...

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

I really don't think so. More like the end of the "Seima Senki" Chapter.
By the way, regarding the translation of this chapter title in this thread, can we now settle on what would be the most accurate ?

Sounds interesting. Must be one heck of a wall of flame to stop Grunbeld btw.

Hague, how come you keep knowing what happens in every chapter like a week before they're released?

If we consider the number of "great" apostiles alive (with Grumbeld if Guts donīt kill him now), the five godīs hands and the others little things and causal enemies, you know, I think Berserk can go on for many years.

Iīm really anxious for the end, but Iīm also affraid because I donīt want to get without this anxiety for the next chapter. If the history goes on for a long time, I hope Miura keep its quality and origins.

Hi, Tazinaffo! You have reason, Berserk is an excellent history, but sincerely I would not like to complete 40 years and still reading Berserk (I am with 23 years of age). If the chapters did not delay in such a way , would go to be excellent, but unhappyly nor everything is perfect! In the worse one of the cases it can happen what xechnao said!  :'(

I'm still not _100%_ sure... But it looks like some of Guts' hair turned white.

WTF?... Guts had aged?!!

I think the story is causing me more and more nuts about berserk...


P.S Wouldnt it be great if Guts hair had totally turned white?  ;D

It's a sign of a traumatic event, or immense stress.  It can actually happen, too.

I think you have some powers like Flora, Hague! Yours news are really great and I hope youīre right. This change in Gutsīs appearance sounds interesting.

It's a sign of a traumatic event, or immense stress.  It can actually happen, too.

Intense fear has traditionally been the most common cause.

Also to consider is that in Abrahamic religions, having white hair is a sign of having come in contact with God. Moses, and I believe elijah were said to have glowing faces and white hair. Christ is said to have looked this way at his baptisism, ascention, and later in dream of John which comprises most of the book of Revelation. I wouldn't be surprised if Mohamed is said to have had his hair turned white after leaving the cave where he wrote the qu'ran.

I'm not trying to suggest that Guts has come in contact with God, but trying to suggest the possibility of some underlying dogmatic/mythological element (berserk is no stranger to these).

In any case, isn't it interesting that now Guts matches Rutger Hauer even more-so?

Amongst other things, one's hair turning white after using too much power/whatever is one of the biggest anime cliches right after absurd hair and big eyes. :)

Uhm, I believe in Trigun after a plant (Vash, Knives type people) uses up to much energy their hair begins to turn white. but that has nothing to do with this topic.

i don't think Guts and Casca are effected by normal aging, remember what flora side about being in the spiritual realm for so long made her life unnaturally long? but stress/fear/truama is a cause so that is probably what it is if the hazama effect isn't effecting them.

Yeah, thanks for the input.  Anymore deep parallels anybody? Get them over with now so we don't have to suffer them later.

Remember that line from "The Ghostbusters" when Winston tells the mayor that he's "seen things that will turn your shit white!".  
Well maybe Guts got some white shit in his hair....
