That is a cool new stylistic turn for the Beast armor. Reminds me of Marvel Masterpieces series two. ;D

Hey, whoa, I'm a nerd!

P.S. I hope nobody was insulted that I compared Miura's art to that of lesser cartoons.

The beast look weird from the front... Nevertheless it is solid






(Too bad the preview only show the very first page on the next chapter)

I bet the kid* plays a large role in bringing Guts back from the Beast, though perhaps not until 243 or 244, depending on how long this fight lasts.

*Damn I hope he gets named soon.  It just seems strange to call him the kid or what have you.
*Place deeply meaningful thoughts here*
Wait, on second thought, don't, It might ruin my reputation.

Awsome, looks like finishing stance of a Ken-to-shodo Bushido strike. Very nice, and although I'm really looking forward to Guts making fish sticks out of the Makara, I too would like to see the story move on (hopefully to the Port).

Anyway thanks for the preview asmer, its just enough to whet my appetite for the next Chapter. ;D

Like usual it is very likely that it is one of the very first pages of the issue. Since Guts seems to have the upper hand it is very probable that the bulk of the issue will not be about the fight with the makara.

Wonder what the beast would do to the rest of the group before Guts' sanity returns(assuming it does)

They're a distraction... they're in the way... they're fresh meat... what did the beast do last time Guts saw Casca naked without anyone to tell him to stop?  

The beast's Friend/Foe list goes like this:
Foes
1. Griffith
2. Things associated with griffith
3. Things trying to kill me
4. Things holding me back
5. Friends
6. Guts

Friends
1. Armor
2. Dragonslayer
3. prostetic arm
4. crossbow
5. throwing knives
?. Rickert

Yeah, since the title is known as Sea Noise i speculate it may have something to do with the priest (who control the makara) casting some magic and making use of the sea (more likely waves) to destroy them?


Not very sure either  :P

It is weird that Guts doesnt attack his own group, it look like he does preserved some sanity...

technically the beast must not like the throwing knives & such cause they came off when the armor took over.  ;)

also, does puck fall into one of those or is he back to the 'bug' category?

Why are you considering Rickert to be on the list?

He's the one who built parts of his equipment. And he will probably, if he ever shows up again, replace Godot for maintaining Guts' Weapons.

Hello,


about Skully and his armur, i've noticed that the armor has signs of Roses (so plantes), same for handle of his Sword that seems almost born from the transformation of a rose's plant, seems born or powered by a kind of Power that could come from an entity like Flora (sorry for my English but i don't know how to say this properly, i hope you can get it anyway...).
Well this makes me feel like Flora had a great role in the creation of the Armur and probably of what Skully and his horse are now!

That wasn't completely random and off-topic.  What brought on this revelation? The fountain of blood spewing out of a hole in the monster's face, or Guts' reflective, contemplative pose?

You should post your speculative opinions in the proper threads.

I figure there'll be a bit more choppy an they'll be on thier way again. I would like to see Guts turn on his companions for a brief momment though and as someone stated earlyer get 'turned back' by the stare from the kid.

Doubt it'll happen though, so far nothing, NOTHING has broken Guts's love fer Casca and while he may hurt her involintarily i dont think the beast could ever push him as far as to raise a weapon on her.

Oh yeah, hi by the way. I've been a lurker here for manys the day, just never got around ta actualy registering and makeing any kind o' a contribution.... Till now of course.

Going back to the priest controlling the makara for just a minute: If Schierke knows he's out there, will the group try to take action against him? Or am I thinking two chapters ahead already?
It's always the same. Now if you had the two eyes on the same side of the nose, for instance -- or the mouth at the top -- that would be some help.'

`It wouldn't look nice,' Alice objected. But Humpty Dumpty only shut his eyes, and said `Wait till you've tried.'

They're too far out to attack. So, I guess we'll fnd out if the Beast can swim or not, if he doesn't turn on the group, run off, get cured, or the boat comes in to shore to start more shit. Whatever. =)

Couldn't serpico fly out there with his cape, or is it only capable of making long leaps?

I dont know what brought that up but we can only assume Serpico can take long leaps or glide.
