Maybe Griffith is coming too and all of them met together at one place!!!??? OMG

Smith... A bunch of pirates against 4 kids and you're already seeing a Griffith/Guts meeting ?

The pirates leader look as if he got some skills... But how many blows can he stand from Guts? (He will be pretty good if he can withstand 3... but who knows maybe eventually Serpico will be the one fighting him  :P)

He probably can't take any blow from Guts, or even Serpico actually, and is just there as a kind of "boss" for the kids to fight against (remember the Troll Chieftain?).

By the way, seeing the recent developments, I wouldn't be surprised if Guts & co just shipped away with the pirates' boat after the battle... Well, they'd still need a crew or at least a navigator I guess.

Interesting to see that sonja can here telepathy without the use of a physical object from the the person emitting the telepathy.  Seems there are some extraordinary powers this girl has.  I wonder what other hidden capabilities she has.  This just shows why mule was sent after her and why she's important to Griffith's campaign.  Plus i love  Sonja's enthusiasm during all this.  She's a very strange girl.

One eyed, peg leg, ex-midland king kicking mules ass? Haha, now mule has no horse.

Anyways, it looks like Isidro is getting pretty good against those pirate chumps  ;D. I guess he is living up to my high expectations.

Nothing new really, we've known about her powers for quite some time now (volume 23, at the same time as the first appearance of Mule)...

Are you guys joking?

The (ex-)king of Midland is dead, which is the only reason why Charlotte is the (duck-)Queen. Sure, the pirate has a similar face/beard, but... heck, last time we saw the old king he was way older than this fellow.

At first I wasn't, but now I know the mistake I have made after reading the translation.

I think its really funny though how Isidro resembles Guts fighting style (kinda...) and how mule resembles griffith's fighting style (on the horse).

And for the Pirate leader... there has to be something special about him, maybe a fight that guts will have... because it is kinda unnatural to leap from a ship the way he did and kick someone off a horse with only 1 leg...

Thanks for the new chapter
What's this on the perished characters - new characters (first moonchild-then pirate boss)?
Imagine Miura's secret influence be Monty Python  :o
and the big finale be that all the story was somebody's scizofrenic dream or something
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.

A rogue apostle maybe? it's not unlikely that not all of them follow Griffith... especially since one even tried to kill him right before he became femto. This is speculation, though, and as such should take place on the appropriate board :)

I was thinking he was an apostle.  Look at the looks his men have one the last page.  That's the look of fear.  It's like how Wyld's troops were afraid of him.  And if that's the case, Guts will be be the one doing the saving.  But he'll probably show up at the end of the next chapter.  But will he give into the beast yet again?

He didn't leap he swung from a rope, you know normal pirate stuff.

I still have my money on a kind hearted Pirate Captian who after meets Guts will agree to help him on his quest.

Maybe it's just his horse that's similar to Griffith's. I mean, it has four legs. That can't be a coincidence.

Well Mule does use a cavalry sabre, a more "British" style, to so his style is bound to be somewhat similar...

AHAHAHAHAA!!! ;D
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.

Now what do you mean by that? Are you saying she did not hear Schierke's telepathy? Im just living off of saiki's translation here.

Ok, I know Guts looks cooler... but comon. They both have some HUGE similarities... for example that cape and that scarf thing on both of them.

Because when you are on a horse there is only so many ways you can swing a sword.

I'm saying that of course Sonja is telepath (among other things). We've known that for years.

Yeah, but Guts and Isidro are also wearing pants in those pictures. Just a coincidence? ::)

Scarves, capes, pants, SHOES = Identical Fighting Style.

Hey, Azan and Silatt have capes too, did they train with Guts for a time we are not familiar with?

Miura has created a world where there is a set fashion of clothes, uniforms and such for different groups of the people. Compare the warriors to the nobels, or the warriors to the hicks carefully, particularly in certain areas of the world and you will notice in alot of cases that there are many similarities with what people are wearing.

You are looking at pics showing one part of the action happening in a Manga, it's difficult to tell if someone has a similar fighting style over that. The only thing they have in common is that they are using thin swords on horses, it happens.

Its not totaly absurd to jump to the conclusion that there should be similarities between the two's fighting style...  Guts did kinda help train the kid...  but while training him, he made the differences in their builds very obvious... so the kid should be fighting quite differently... 2 sword style remember
Ok, so I leave and come back....

It's really interesting to see that the 4 characters have met on relatively friendly terms so far...I'd like to see what Mule/Sonja think of Guts, if they (hopefully) meet him...if Griffith was able to trigger something in Sonja, maybe she'll realize something about Guts, too.
