I noticed something that I thought was kind of Funny: Did anyone else see how the Noble suffering from severe Male-pattern Baldness has an Octopus as his Emblem? Isn't "Bald-Headed Octopus." A common insult against Bald people in Japan?

Actually, I didn't.  That's pretty funny.  Now I understand Grail's addition of an octopus in her drawing on the Oekaki board. :void:

It may be late but thanks for the scan Aaz (and big thx to Puella for the translation too) nice episode anyway Midland's noblemen are as stupid as alwaays because I would not taunt a man like Griffith right after I saw him "defeat" such a big army (btw their faces are priceless)

I realise that people have already examined the "20 years later" picture in photoshop, but some people are still skeptical. I did go through the entire thread looking to see if anybody else had found out for sure, so if I missed something important by chance, sorry. Anyway, onto the real post.

I'm pretty sure it's just a good photoshop. In fact, I went and found the exact pages that a bunch of those pictures came from. I don't think linked thumbnails will work using the BB codes here, so you'll have to make do with just links.

All episode numbers are relative to the volume they're in, not the exact episode numbers. Also, all of these pictures have been modified carefully in some small ways, but you can easily see that the lines match exactly with the pictures in the original "20 years later" image.

Isidro's sword (Volume 29, Episode 1):

I don't think Miura would have to resort to photoshopping his own pictures, so my conclusion is that it's just a joke (and a very well done photoshop).

I've uncovered more evidence! :troll:



Yes, you can all thank me, Aaz, and puella for this month long April fools (plus a nod to big cheese and creative consultant, Wally B). And special credit to mr.crabe for being the FIRST person to figure out our evil scheme WITH proof, which must have been lost in the evidence room with everything since. :carcus:

Well, you have to realize that some people gave up railing against the prank and just played along... :guts:

Sorry, an attempt at an inside joke of sorts. I wasn't trying to imply you didn't...  I was referencing the "omg!!111 mey post wast delted!!111" reaction that a lot of people (including myself at first) had, only to be forced into playing along (or be destroyed by Aaz), but I didn't convey it particularly well.

O_o

What the Shit? Why did you add that on my post?

I swear I shall never hot-link again, as I have already learned.
The cold season drifts over the land.
They all huddle in the brown corners.
Some would settle for less.
The castles were all empty, asleep
Long awaiting their King.
Beckoning round the bend.

A valuable lesson. And it's in our own Forum Rules, too.
