  Haha, I check YA not five minutes ago for an update. Sneaky gits =P

The Band of the Boat aren't that numerous from the looks of it. But as with all of Griffith's strategies, there is much more to it. Also, if Coming Flying the official title? Sounds a wee bit... off? Still, good to have preview picture up! Cheers, Aaz.

Well the meaning's a bit complicated, it's used to refer to migrating birds (and enemy airplanes). I hesitated with "Come Flying" which sounds better to me, but that's as far as tweaking goes. It's open to educated suggestions though, as always.

Anyway, there aren't that many men up there, like we thought. I'm still wondering whether they'll fight at all or are just there for the psychological effect.

"Flocking enemy" ? "Flocking approach" ? "Incoming Flock" ?

I have no Japanese skills whatsoever... just thought of it based on Aazealh's description (migrating birds and enemy airplanes), so it's probably as wrong as spelling G4tts.

Nice!  I can't wait to see what Griffith's strategy is this time.  I love these kind of episode titles Miura uses with multiple meanings, too. :guts:

Man it feels so wierd getting a new episode so soon. :guts:

No kidding, the last two weeks felt like nothing (contrary to what I originally thought they'd feel like).  Wonder if we'll be in for another long or semi-long wait after this one, though.

What's interesting is that it's the same title as episode 98 in volume 14.

Damn, you beat me to it. I'm absolutely stoked to be getting a new episode so soon. Hopefully we'll get another peek at the "Handsome One"
in action.

Well I shuld have the "goods" in the same time although there might be a little snag. I will be having my little assistant with me all day tomorrow (its 6:50am right now) so he may want to give me a hand whether its productive or not!  :carcus:

Other then that though... I'm looking forward to it!

Nice preview, totally unrevealing! The title makes me even more curious as to what are those guys in the end of the last episode carrying up the hill (sails... anyone?).

Well, that's only one cell, there could be more than that, though I suppose you can only fit so many horsemen in a few wrecked ships.  There might be more than just that group as well.  We'll find out soon enough.

And thanks for posting the preview Aaz.

I like "Approaching formation" I based this on Aazealh's description, not my own knowledge, but I think it fits the meaning he was getting at and sounds nice.

Hopefully we'll get another peek at the "Handsome One"
in action.

I don't think Carcus will be in this episode. You can hold onto your hopes though.  :carcus:

I think the title "Hirai - Come Flying" refers to migrating birds, as in:

"Arriving on the Wing"

Thanks man, you're awesome. :SK:

Not much to say, it looks like these wrecked ships could hide enough soldiers after all. The apostles are cleaning everything like one would expect. Still, what a guilty pleasure to see Grunberd kill elephants. :beast:

Awesome episode.

I'd like to see more of Griffith in battle...I'm interested to see just how powerful his current form is.

I sense the possibility of a confrontation with Ganishka here in a few episodes.

If not the next one.  I can definitely see Ganishka emerging in the next episode, as more and more of his army is destroyed by the Neo Hawks.

Wow, thank you!  I'm even more impressed by this episode than the last one.  So many beautifully drawn epic double paged spreads of our fav apostles.  Can't wait to see the next!
