Ok, I went a little overboard. Obviously I can't rightfully make that claim given all the possibilities currently open before us. My response was directed at Deci's post regarding Guts leading an army -- I don't see Guts leading an army of Elfhelm participants against Apostles and Falconia in general. It doesn't seem his style, and I think that part of his life is over.Griffith said:I wholeheartedly disagree with that sentiment. I mean, this has been a series filled with war and epic battlefields, we're not more than a few episodes removed from the latest (not to be confused with the last), and now those days are done!?
Right now, as the circumstances currently are, I'm reaching out with my Berserkian eye and ... just not seeing a traditional army vs army clash in the end. Am I giving that my Wally Official Seal of Inevitability? No, but seeing as how the world has become far more gray than black and white in recent episodes, I just don't see that happening.
Just a note, the Chapter of the Holy Evil War Chronicle ended with ep 235, and one could reason, ultimately ended with Ganishka becoming a giant treeI don't understand the rationale behind the bold proclamation that that aspect of the series is over, when it may not have even begun as Miura can imagine it between the forces of good and evil.
Well that brings up another point. What we witnessed in vol 34 was the biggest and most dramatically drawn battle of the series thus far. To me it felt like the end-all, be-all of large-scale "military" battles. I'm unsure if it can be equaled, nor if Miura has the desire to equal it. It could stand as the bookend to that kind of conflict. Anyway, I never meant that there wouldn't be an epic battle in the end. Given the scale of the series I think some kind of grand show is certainly in line. I just don't think it will be a traditional one, the kind that Deci seemed to be implying, that we've seen in the previous age of the world.Part of me even screams, "Wouldn't Miura himself be disappointed if it didn't come down to an epic battle!?" After all, despite the effort required, he keeps drawing them. =)
That's what Wally's GUT says anyway
