I had this feeling that everytime Guts uses this armor, he will get more and more white hair... Who knows if that really happen...  :P


If it indeed switch to Griffith side, it would a long long time be4 we can see Guts and his band again, and most probably like Ozmo said, it would be many month or years later, where his crew can be seen in Elfhelm  ;)



P.S Not too much speculation though, but i hope to get the background of the armor with Gaiseric/Skully within the near future...  :)

Pfff neither will win. They just put on a show while people are watching, and secretly live together.

Flora: Life can change only its form.
We may meet again in your dream.

thanks, i guess that clears that one up.  So she's not fire element but what though?  Is she one with the Astral realm completely and can just take on all forms?

The way Flora was positioned, she almost reminded me of the woman on Skully's armor.  But that's probably just me (pointless interlude ;D)

 8) Good stuff as always. Thanks Saiyajin! Thanks Walter!

That panel on pg. 17 with Schierke crying really got to me; made me think of me dear old Gran's funeral.

Am I the only one who thinks Guts should attatch a chain to the DS and just swing it around like a homicidal lawnmower?

No, youre not alone. I personally think that was intentional.
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 also once thought of such ideas when i saw one of the Mozgues disciple wielding that chain weapon, with the chain attach to DS, Guts is able to change his melee to ranged attack and  slaughter his enemy before they can even get close... (examle like the one in 229), yet i quickly dispose this idea becz it would be a big problem if the chain got entangle...  :P

Thanks, SaiyajinNoOuji.  ;)

Hmmm, the break will be quite long, one and a half month.  :( Maybe I gotta read Berserk again from the beginning.
BTW, young Flora was very charming. Now I can see why Skully and Voidy have splitted up and fought for a thousand years.  ;D

It's not a bad idea except that he already has a ranged attack: his throwing knives that he learned to use from Judeau. Not to mention that swinging a 300 lb weapon would be impossible. Guts simply does not have the mass to stay in place when it is swinging. Then again I don't see how it is possible to even swing it like a sword, so anything is possile. ;D

was it already brought up that the fact that skullknight never takes his gear off is because his body is probably so mutalated that he couldn't or he would die?

He's probably a hollow shell under the armor. The beherit makes a Ka-rang sound when it drops "inside" him.  Plus the guy can swallow his own sword. Not to mention he's 1000 years old.  That'd be some knappy flesh.

I hadnīt noticed this yet, but I agreed with you! Iīm very curious about the relationship between Skull and Flora and Floraīs fate in the next chapters.

Hmmm great chapter, but I do wonder how they are going to heal Guts wound at the hands of Slann? The armor, as far as we know, merely takes away pain and adds prosthetic intrusions to shattered limbs, but it doesnt really *heal* the wearer. That in itself may preclude Guts from taking the armor off again until Elfhelm.


(by the way, who thinks Elfhelm by the time they reach it will be a smoldering ruin a la Flora's crib?)

Page 9 is when he seems to throw it, page 10 he catches up to it and finishes the starfish apostle.

He probably did in fact throw it, look at serpico on the panels of page 10...first panel, the sword flies in, little wind blowing in from the projectile. Then the next panel Guts comes in and SHOOM Serps' hair and cloak are blowing along with the wind caused by Guts' frame coming in at a high speed.

Also last time we saw Guts move like a whirlwind, you could make out the shape of his body/head, in this case you do not. Not only that, but on the first panel of page 10 there is no hand grasping the DS.

So, to save Isidro and puck/save time to get to Casca, Guts chucks the DS, catches up to it, gets it free of the starfish's head by completely decapitating it, then continues on to the more important task at hand  ;D
