Title: 触手船 - The tentacled ship
Guess who's back?
In other news, Berserk won't be in the next issue of YA.
Maybe it will be a lead-in to the need for a rescue from somebody a bit more powerful than Schierke?Walter said:
Yup, looks like he's not ready yet... We'll see how things will turn out, but who's going to bail him out this time, and how? Will Isma and Schierke have to team up to pull him out, considering that he's surrounded by the sea during a full moon, just like he was on the beach in volume 28? The last time it took an in extremis intervention from the Moonlight Boy to prevent something tragic... Will Schierke be up to the task this time?Walter said:

Hehehe, that thing definitely bears a strong resemblance to the "paws" the tentacles made back when the first sea cucumber attacked the Sea Horse. Maybe Miura stumbled on that Takeshi Yamada fellow's work? Or maybe they based themselves on the same weird creatures... Damn, I wish I could remember exactly what that thing inside the ship reminds me of in that panel...Dar Klink said:It must be the GIANT CHUPACABRA SNAIL! Winner of a 2007 hoax photo contest...
Yeah, same here. Maybe it's a sort of nudibranch? Crabs and the like have relatively similar-looking eyes, but with shorter stalks.Rhombaad said:The ship's eyes remind me of the slug count's.
But let's have hope! It might be a short break!Rhombaad said:As for Berserk not being in the next YA, I kinda figured that'd be the case. Three episodes in a row has been the typical run this last year or so.
Haha, same here. I'm hoping there'll be a date at the end of the episode.Aazealh said:But let's have hope! It might be a short break!
...I want to believe.
Those thing are so cool.Lithrael said:For tentacle eyes you can't beat a conch.
You mean the sentence when the Beast of Darkness tells to Guts that its power will be restrained until the chains will be broken?Walter said:
I know, he looks especially badass in those panels for some reason. I love the way his cape is falling over his shoulder armor, with the draping between the curves...Ugh, so pretty!Gobolatula said:Berserker Guts is looking amazing. Here's to hoping he doesn't get hurt too bad!
I hope he doesn't hurt anybody on his crewGobolatula said:Berserker Guts is looking amazing. Here's to hoping he doesn't get hurt too bad!
can skull knight cross oceans? or moonlight boy for that matter.JezzaX said:or hopefully (although unlikely) an excuse for Skully to appear out of nowhere just so it can lead to a conversation with Guts about Griffith and Falconia.
Dude, he's 0 for 3. That's bad, even for Guts. Of course it'd be something to see him "pull himself out", but if he did this it would negate the danger aspect of using the armor from here on out. I hope he masters it one day, but I seriously doubt he'll master it on this occasion.Truder said:Maybe we're not giving Guts enough credit, maybe he can pull himself out. If he wants to prove something, then pulling himself out of the armor's influence would be something to prove. (that's what I'm hoping)
Don't hold your breath. If it were the case I think we'd know about it.Rhombaad said:I'm hoping there'll be a date at the end of the episode.
Yes. Not really a conversation, more of a monologue. Not to mention that Guts couldn't remember what the dream was about.Marik said:You mean the sentence when the Beast of Darkness tells to Guts that its power will be restrained until the chains will be broken?
Yeah... It strikes me as pretty similar to what happened when all the Makara showed up in volume 31. An overwhelming challenge appears and he instantly resorts to the armor without trying to fight without it first. It's a worrying pattern for him, because it's much too dangerous to be relied upon like that (as Farnese reminded him in episode 314).Aphasia said:I'm also a bit surprised to see Guts making use of the armors power. It looked like he had things under control, for the most part.
Yeah, it seems too early for Farnese to try something like that. Besides, Schierke should be able to get to him in her astral form even from a distance. It might be more difficult, but they're not that far away.Proj2501 said:If Guts loses himself, again, to the armor it may be up to Farnese to give a rescue a try. Good thing Schierke taught her how to have an out of body experience. Something tells me Farnese isn't quite ready to go in and rescue Guts' ego.
Honestly I don't see him dominating the armor's effects on his own at this point. But since the Beast is laying low, he might have an easier time getting back to his senses, which would eventually lead him to a false sense of security with the armor ("It's getting easier to control it!"). Very dangerous in the long run.Truder said:Maybe we're not giving Guts enough credit, maybe he can pull himself out. If he wants to prove something, then pulling himself out of the armor's influence would be something to prove.
Yeah, nothing in the manga suggests that the Skull Knight is capable of such a feat.Proj2501 said:Also, I'm doubting whether or not is even capable of rescuing Guts' ego.
You should be careful not to always equate the Berserk's armor with the Beast of Darkness. It's the armor that is blinding Guts in that case, fanning the flames of his fear, rage, hatred, etc. while obscuring the rest. It's what it does, how it works.Proj2501 said:Now it's possible the Beast will voluntarily relinquish his hold on Guts after all the nasties have been slain. But why would he?
Of course, but on the other hand it's not the first time they're in this situation. So far it's nothing new, just different monsters.BiQ-- said:things would be IMHO much more interesting if the Beast stays an uncontrollable thing for now.
I have to admit I'm dying to see what it is. The damn thing's been eluding us for almost a year now!Th3Branded0ne said:At least I hope to see Guts destroy the ship while the effects are there, and see the real shape of this creature.
