I got my copy a few days ago, and found this insert poster of Guts and Casca, hiding behind the poster of Griffith and his apostle army.

Very cool stuff. Im glad to see Miura doing paintints still.

yesterday I got Korean version of vol. 23 for free :)
The title of 190 is " a molar" and 196 " like a baby(child)" following orginal Japanese title.
Are both the same with other language titles ???
just curious....

and what does "baby" indicate? Farnese and Isidro use a word of "babysitting" relating to taking care of Casca.
So a baby means Casca or peaceful time of all the members of Guts band? I think the latter is right for 196. what do you think?

** Checking manga section here, it is "The beast hungers " for 190. personally I prefer it to "a molar" :-X

"Like a child" could also be Farnese's folly in getting lost. There is a reference to her past in this chapter, when she is curling up into the tree as night falls. So, while Casca is the obvious answer to the 'child', I think in this chapter, Farnese is the real child.

Farnese and Serpico use words of respect(honorific) toward even Puck and Isidro not to mention of Guts and Casca.
I am so impressed at it. :o
On the contrary, Guts always uses low forms of speech to almost everyone. I've never seen he uses honorific terms except a couple of occasions.
It's no problem with English but important to Asian people like me.

** Ack, Farnese says to Isidro without blinking an eye "Your arm should be cut off for the punishment for stealing nobles' belongings". *shudders*  ;D

Really?? When did she say that?

In Isidro's defense:

He looks squarely at Farnese and says

"Stealing? Stealing! Some of those nobles hung innocent people, even women and children outside the castle walls. What punishment should they receive!??"

Ofcourse he never said that, but it would be sorta true and a cool retort.

There's one like that in the Eclipse, I think. I don't actually have the manga, (I downloaded it) but y'know when the Brand strikes Casca? There is a blackened mark on her armour. However, when she gets gang-raped by the demons, and they rip away her breastplate, the mark is gone, I think. Its been a while since I saw it.
You die first, get it? Your friends might get me in a rush but not before I turn your head into a canoe. What's it gonna be?
