Thanks Aazealh, really great chapter this week! ;D
SaiyajinNoOuji said:I somewhat agree with Xech about the whole "training" thing but I don't think its intentional. More or less, Gut's is just keeping it in check so he doesnt go ape shit and kill everyone on scene. Granted that is more then likely very obvious.

Serpico said:Exactly what I was expecting from Serpico. Maybe he will get a little more credit now :) as a duelist at least. His manuevers were pretty amazing.
Judo said:Well, judging by the pictures that take place in Serpicos mind, he is going through a very serious development during the fight.
Judo said:I wonder what action Schierke ignites on page 16... or maybe she is just receiving Serpicos thoughts.
Aazealh said:Not that I don't like Serpico's manoeuvres or anything, but he definitely isn't on the winning side for now, and Puck has prepared a coffin with a "Pico" written on it. ;D
I'm actually looking at the fight more like it's showing that Guts has improved even more, because in his injured state and in a "arena" that gives him a disadvantage he is able to read Serpico's moves and still battle him on even terms.Serpico said:Ahhhh that was an awesome chapter.

Can never get enough of Miura's action sequences. So good.
Opie said:Serpicos jumping around just makes me want to see a Griffith vs Serpico show down once and for all.
Woland said:Thanks for the episode Aazealh.
Serpico's a spry motherfucker ain't he.
Get in line Serpico, get in line.Aazealh said:...and seems to appreciate Guts a lot, him who fights against his environment and forge his own path instead of being passive and just adapting himself to whatever happens (like Serpico does).
Vaxillus said:What's also great is the fact that the next episode, assuming I read the date correctly, comes out in only two weeks. Enough time to build suspense, but not so long as to let the suspense wear off.

Serpico said:Ya I really hope serpico survives to the end of the manga for that reason, so that that they might spar a bit before the main event. They both so that evil eye thing hehe, that would be great. Although Serpico would probably die to the new Griffith :'(
Serpico said:To no one in particular:
To be fair, Serpico is naturally disadvantaged armor wise to Guts as well. Guts is still wearing a full suit of Godly armor, not to mention his metal hand is extremely usefull, while Serpico is pretty much naked since he needs to be mobile (not that armor would do any good against Guts, he will chop right through) Guts armor definitly helps him alot though while he can stay agile. Thats something Serpico just doesnt have.
Smith said:Come and think of it... Do you think by wearing armor would help much? If he could slash through 2 pillars in one blow what make you think an armour will do him good... Plus it does restrict his movement which he seriously need it to dodge Guts deadly attack...
Serpico said:My point was Guts Armor and fake hand helps him alot, while Serpico doesnt have that option since its too heavy for him.

puella said:257 short preview from YA:
- The first page will be colored.
- A line in the next episode (?): "いいぜ、受けてやる"
I guess this line is Guts'. It means "All right, (I'll) accept (you)" or "(I'll) take it."
That line is very close to what Guts says in episode 255 when accepting Serpico's duel though ("いいぜ"). Actually the line "いいぜ、受けてやる" fits into the scene very well. Plus, the sad thing is that Young Animal's previews are often unreliable.
