Hm I'm not so sure yet unless I'm missing something. This creature Guts is fighting really seems more like a big bag of flesh. The creature is not really fighting, just kinda waving around waiting to be cut.Zerk said:I think the implications of this episode is that guts has become either physically or spiritually (in reference to his effect on other worldly things) stronger. The guy wasn't focused and he was cutting through those tentacles without much effort. Maybe when he was healed by that wave of light his muscles, having endured many terrible injuries, have become stronger or when the worlds merge it gave him a spiritual boost.
I'd agree but I hope by now and with the wave Guts is feeling closer than ever to how he felt before he first donned the armor. I don't follow the second sentence though. Guts gets laid up when he taps into the armor and gets banged around. I don't see a repeat of past cycles unless the next episode things get real rough, but this incident and with it involving the same Pirate Leader makes it seem more light hearted. If Guts feels bad after this episode than he's got a lot of healing left to do, but I can't wait for the fighting to be over so we can see how everything stands.グリフィス said:Interesting, though at this point I think Guts is just in decent health. We've seen him go through this cycle a few times with the armor now, where one moment he's seemingly invincible, and the next he's laid up for weeks, paying the price.
