I think it might be for the cannon in his arm. I wonder if we will get a glimpse of the sea god in this episode.I wonder what Guts is holding against the DS. And it looks like the ghost ship is climbing the cliff?
No doubt it's going to be a sea cucumber massacre... And could it be that the Sea God really is hiding itself inside the ghost ship? It has to be something bigger than what we've seen so far.Th3Branded0ne said:Great! I wonder how many tentacles Guts manage to get this time around, since he looks all bloody in one of the pics. That ghost ship sure looks like it's climbing the hill, being helped by the tentacles perhaps.
Ah yeah, good guess, I think that's it. It's been quite a while since we last saw him reloading during battle.cajunman380 said:I think it might be for the cannon in his arm.

[quote author=Rules for Current Episodes thread]Death May Die said:Wow 314 already? What a pleasant surprise!
And it's not like I announced it two weeks ago in the previous thread!グリフィス said:I wouldn't give people too much grief for not expecting the quick turnaround with 314. As we well know, just because Young Animal is semi-monthly, doesn't mean Berserk always is. =)
By the way, you guys should prepare yourselves to be amazed two weeks from now:Aazealh said:Berserk will of course be present in the next issue of YA.
Aazealh said:And while we're at it, episode 315 will be in the next next YA (#15, released on July 23rd).
Yeah, I'm in the same predicament... But I think it's going to be awesome either way. And I agree about each sea cucumber and villager being a part of the Sea God's greater whole, actually. From what we've seen so far it seems they're all under control to some extent. Not unlike an apostle's minions.グリフィス said:Anyway, looks great, I can't wait to see what the ghost ship is up to. I'm not sold that it's housing the Sea God though, mostly because I'm hoping it's so huge it can't even compact itself into the ship. Of course, all of these phenomenon could be direct manifestations of the Sea God, each tentacle and sea cucumber a part of it's greater whole, like Dead Space.
The thought briefly occurred to me.グリフィス said:And since we already have a best guess, I'm going with an extreme alternative and guessing that the object in Guts' hand is... a drum mallet! Which Guts is using there to play the Dragon Slayer like a Xylophone, in concert with the sea cucumbers, for a stirring rendition of the song of the Sea God, the only thing that can sooth its rage!
Not a very valid comparison for a number of reasons. The appendages of the sea god act autonomously and are, in some form, alive. It's not just a pile of corpses. It's actually got far more in common with the way apostles control minions, which makes sense since that's within the same universe.Marik said:It looks quite good, and I have a wild guess: what if the "human tentacles" are bound to a larger core(like the Sea God)?
That would explain why we see at first the sea cucumber in the open sea (assuming that every sea cucumber and its human like tentacles are always made by villagers).
The best example that comes in my mind is [Legion from Symphony of the Night]
Well he did load his cannon in the heat of battle to shoot at Femto while being dragged to hell by the Vortex of Souls, but that doesn't exactly make it a mundane occurrence.グリフィス said:Holy fuck, I mean, we've never seen Guts have to reload like that for a reason.
Yeah, but that was personal and in the moment, whereas he's never had to casually bust out his special cannon reloading mallet before. It's like Guts admitting he needs to pop a Viagra before he continues.Aazealh said:Well he did load his cannon in the heat of battle to shoot at Femto while being dragged to hell by the Vortex of Souls, but that doesn't exactly make it a mundane occurrence.
