Duel interference. Fog loses 10 yards.

Judging by the title it should last for the most part of the episode- at least. Perhaps near the very end of the episode they would stop for one reason or another, or not.
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.
Pay attention people. Watch your back!

Hell, yea, can't wait.

But I just know there's going to be a cliffhanger at the end of this, or some stupid "thing" stopping the battle before it ends.

that's one hell of a prediction, dude  ;D

well, not much to conclude from the preview-pic, as ever.
seems like the fog is already entering the fighting-place... our two duelists have to hurry up if they want to find a victor before the monster-attack starts.
Rock Concert Manual #237:
Taking the audience to a jungian journey into the collective unconscious by using the shadow as a metaphor for the primal self that gets repressed by the modern persona... and also by using an underground setting and labyrinth office design to represent both: the depths of the psyche and the dungeon-like isolation of our increasingly mechanistic society which prevents people from finding satisfying work or meaningful connections with others.

That might just be the testosterone filling the room. ;D

No, seriously.

Thank you. :)

Hey, give him a break, I think we're all a little rusty. I was actually somewhat blown away by this preview and Zech's subsequent speculation (did I just call him "Zech"? =).

Anyway, yeah, I'm impressed that it's not just Guts' and Serp looking at eachother (like Uriel's picture) or Schierke doing her Marge Simpson impression ("mmmmmm") and her "=|" face. Moreover, it even shows that Serpico's already in over his head early, or at least the intensity at which this fights going to be at; pretty impressive for a preview.

-Griff

P.S. I wonder if Serpico can take contact from the DS if it's slowed down enough by a pillar, you know, just bruise/break his ribs rather then flying apart into two lumps of meat. =)

Yeah, pillars, good plan, guy. Though, I still expect him to hold up his end of the duel, even if it's a losing end.

looks to me like bad news for Serpico. Perhaps thats not Ganishka Fogtm, but dust and debris from the pillar Guts is seen busting apart at the end of 255?

Could be a lot of things, It looks like Miura's typical "special effect" glow (See moonlight child and even Griff's lightshow in episode 195).  But since there's at least a good chance of it being fog, my money is down.

He definitely will need to be fast but I don't think either of them are going to get any serious injuries and I would bet it being Ganishka Fog.

I'm wondering if the Young Animal site's handy translation of the title ("DUEL") is going to be a recurring thing... they've never been so nice to us Yanks before!  ;D

Knowing our luck, it's probably a one-time thing ('cause they thought the English would sound "cool").   :-[

I've actually been wondering myself, like "wow maybe they noticed fans from all around the world were checking the previews? :o". I'm not getting my hopes up though.

Sweetness :D
I for one am hoping that the whole episode be dedicated to the Guts VS Serpico fight. I think however that it will get interupted by something at the ball, or the fog, or Puck talking about something. Oh well...
