Do you think what ever comes out of that pool of :idea: Will rival the powers of a Godhand? or Griffth?
Why in God's name would I wanna keep writing about characters whose central preoccupation are weed and dick and fart jokes? I mean, ya gotta grow man. Don't you ever want anything more for yourself? I know this poor hapless son of a bitch does. I look into his sorry doe eyes and I just, I see a man crying out. He's crying out, "When Lord? When the fuck can your servant ditch this foul-mouthed little chucklehead to whom I am a constant victim of his folly, so much so that it prevents him from ever getting to kiss a girl! Fuck! When, Lord when? WHENS GONNA BE MY TIME?

I know it's fun to use emoticons to replace words, but in this case it just doesn't make much sense. Whatever's coming, it's from "the bottom of the astral world," that much we know. However, the term is a bit vague in the context IMHO, I find it hard to know for sure whether it refers to the bottom of the Abyss (where the Idea of Evil dwells) or to somewhere more... "accessible." The part of the astral world that borders the Vortex of Souls, for example. That's a place a spirit could supposedly go to and return from, while anything past the Vortex has so far been considered a point of no return (unless summoned there by a greater power).

Anyway, to answer your question, the Idea of Evil is what gives the God Hand their power, so if Ganishka has somehow reached It and managed to drain power from there, it's possible that he could rival a member of the God Hand. But that idea poses a few problems. For example, we know that members of the God Hand can only exist as immaterial beings unless they are incarnated during a ceremony that only happens once in a thousand years. There is also the problem of the Idea of Evil's will. Would it let Ganishka just come to it and leech power to fight against Griffith? That's a little hard to believe. Not to mention that the other members of the God Hand might be able (and willing) to intervene as well. And is Ganishka's hellish cauldron powerful enough to send him all the way down there in the first place?

Good point. Its all speculation right now so anything goes. Now we must play the waiting game. Though I think it would be fun to see Super demons battling it out for the control of Midland.

I think the Idea of Evil envelops the spirit of the choosen one with a protection in order to allow him to reach its core, and to drain the final power.

Maybe I'm wrong but I think that for a common apostle, to dive in the Vortex would be bad since he could be trapped and absorbed. I find that is the same for Ganishka, meaning that he may not be able to reach the Idea's core without being absorbed by the Vortex.

I agree with Aazealh, finding more correct a deeper part of the nexus, bordering the vortex.

I believe the Nexus is just a temporal location that exists only during sacrificial ceremonies. It's not a set dimension, it's a rift between two planes of existence. It's just where the God Hand and humans "meet" during those ceremonies.

Ah Ok  :serpico: I had misunderstood the term nexus.

Anyway I was referring to the intermediate plane (the deeper part I guess, that's on the edge of the Vortex) where lies angels and demons and the gods of polytheistic religions.

Well, it's probably going to be more subtle than "Super Demons", but I'm sure it'll be pretty cool nevertheless. :zodd:

Whether it's directly the Idea of Evil or something more complex (a combination of different factors), I also think that there is a need for it to be sanctioned somehow. And yeah, an apostle getting too close from the Vortex of Souls (don't ask me how it'd happen) would probably be taking risks. But beyond that, to recall Flora's words, I think that anyone delving too deep without a protection of some sort would just be crushed by the immense powers at work there; they'd be dissolved and lose their ego or something similar.

Anyway I was referring to the intermediate plane (the deeper part I guess, that's on the edge of the Vortex) where lies angels and demons and the gods of polytheistic religions.

There's no specific name for it, but it's basically the deep end of the astral world (but before the Vortex of Souls), like you said. I wouldn't call it an "intermediate plane" though.

Super Ganishka laughs at all of you & your speculative astral jargon, for he shall decide what is and isn't, he is the alpha and omega! :ganishka:



Anyway, thought I'd do a quick update to the previous Ganishka as Diablo image, now with double the arms!

I was expecting a more solid form in what ever he comes out looking like. Like a cross between Ganishka and Buddha or something. I think Ganishka might throw out the whole cloud form seeings how subseptable he was to..........wind.  :ganishka:

This is more an academic exercise using Diablo II artwork than anything creative. :troll:

Imagine that Ganishka gets swallowed up into the vortex (probably on the Idea of Evil plane) and... dissipate together with whatever form he wished to attain. What an anti-climactic ending it would be :)

Nope, there's definitely a rodent-like feature to him there.

They aren't rodents.

I'll thank you not to talk down about badgers like that.

But you're right that it does share some resemblance with the rattustriceratops minor.

Well seeing as how there is no special preview for episode 293 in the Berserk corner of Young Animals website, I'd say your in for a bit of a wait.

Then again I don't read Japanese.

Re-reading vol 11 and 26-27 is always fun. Though I tend to re-read the last 5 episodes to keep me up to date on such brakes as these. Though with them you know something bad ass is gonna be released

BTW, before anybody asks, the next episode won't be in the next YA, so there's at least a 2 weeks break.


Hello! :guts:

You know when released episode 293?

Thanks ..

why isn't there any release date for the next episode, I dun mind waiting but they could at least gave us a date we can look forward to  :puck:

Not trying to go off topic but has Young Animal released a...release date on the next episode?

i'm probably asking the wrong question for the wrong thread or part of the forum but dose anybody have any sort of idea when the next episode thing comes out? cus i just read like the entire series in the course of like a week and i REALLY want more

Yeah... we're all pretty much sick of this question for the above reasons.
