Such pertinence Smith, it's incredible. Indeed, Serpico is returning them Farnese' silver chaimail and dagger, and his feather sword and cloak.

Notice the title: "white lily" most probably being a reference to Farnese. This episode could underline the changes in her since she joined Guts' band, and her returned innocence/purity.

random thought but I just see Farnese as one of those naughty catholic school girls... so nice on the outside but soo sooo sooooo devious in the inside... anyways... I greatly anticipate this new episode!  ;D

Lolz it was just a wild guess... I only noticed it because Serp wasnt wearing his usual wind cloak...  :P


But then again... Doesn it mean Serp and Farnese will be out of the picture when Guts travel to Elfhelm? If that the case i will really miss them...  :'(

This might have been true during her H.I.C.K. days, but since she's been travelling with Guts it's not anymore IMO.

Then your Attention Deficit Disorder is so great that you can't actually see them in the picture?

Goddamn Smith, didn't you read the last episode at all? We've been talking about it in all of 251's thread, and even before. Indeed, Farnese managed to get a ship ready for Guts & co by agreeing to do Magnifico a favor, but she isn't planning to come with them, and it's most probably the same with Serpico.

Of course, that's a temporary situation, that is very likely to be altered in this episode and those that will follow.

And even if Farnese and Serpico don't go along with Guts, that doesn't necessarily mean that they will disappear from the story completely.  There have been a lot of side stories along Guts main quest, this situation might turn into one of those, and they can always reunite later.  Unless somebody dies...

Yes, it looks like Farnese and Serpico will be returning to the family estate and have a tearful farewell to the Guts's crew.  Gived the amount of character developement and backstory they've been given, I doubt they'll be gone permanently, and we still don't know what Magnifico wants Farnese to do

Hrm... now, if all else fails, and Guts is ok with them leaving etc., don't you think Schierke might say something?  Or more correctly, is there any possibility that Schierke won't say anything??

I'm really looking forward to this chapter, I hope it somewhat clears the air and all the BS speculation about Farnese exiting the story so abruptly and meaninglessly (barring a dramatic turn in upcoming chapters).

But it reminds me too much of all the bitching when Guts first got the Berserk's Armor, when people apparently thought Guts' face was going to be covered by a skull mask the rest of the story. How long did that last?

About as long as I expect Farnese to be gone. =)

Thanks, Lithrael!  :D

Puck & Ivarella, The Rescue Rangers!  ;D
Yeah... sorry.

Damn. Seeing that first color page makes me really want to start getting Young Animal...

The look Serpico gives to Guts is giving me the creeps, even if I know next to nothing about Japanese and can't comment any text here. Anyway, it seems that it was a political marriage, afterall. The guy she seemingly is supposed to marry freaks me out some. Or wait, not "freaks me out" but rather he looks like being the standard snobby bastard nobleman... Again, I cannot read anything they actually say, so I could be totally wrong...

It looks like the sword Serpico had in the last page(look close) but that cant be it. It looks more like Farnese's old dagger and mail that was damaged, maybe as a reminder??? only time will tell

Thanks Lithrael.

My favorite part was Casca sucking on Puck's head.

I wonder what Serpico thinks of all this?  And I do believe he handed over the feather sword on page 4, since there's two weapons/sheaths, one of which is definately larger than a dagger.

Oh well, I suppose they'll have to go get Farnese back.  Hmm, it has been a long time since Guts attended a ball, hasn't it?

Great chapter... But i am a bit sad next chapter will be one month later...


It pretty obvious that Miura, like Guts, is resting... He had been taking break so often recently... I am wondering will Berserk be releasing bi-monthly basic in future... or once a month?...
