Yes, my friend you canSkull Knight said:I went to order this issue of Young Animal only to realize Sasuga Books no longer exists! Can anyone tell me a good alternative for ordering these magazines in the U.S. other than Yahoo Auctions Japan that isn't going to price gouge me?
Well given the size of the thing I'm not sure he even has a choice. We don't even know if it has eyes or an external weak point of some sort. Besides, it worked on the Makara so far. Still, I wonder how they'll kill it (if they can truly kill it for good). Striking at the "brain" or heart if it has any, I guess. But with a creature like that, who knows what the best attack plan would be... Schierke's insight will come in handy for sure.El Gaucho Acuático said:So Guts' goal is to attack the god from the inside out? That's certainly a better idea than trying to attack it from the outside (y'know, monstrous tentacles attacking him and all that).
Yeah, I mean look at how many there seems to be... The Sea God's not kidding anymore. And definitely deserves its title.El Gaucho Acuático said:Also, it's interesting to see that the sea slugs are "healed" now, as far as I can tell. Granted, they might just be ones that Guts didn't fight on the surface of the island though.
Yeah, the perspective is key here, as well as the fact that they're in a comical situation and not really looking sinister.El Gaucho Acuático said:And is it just me or does the Captain look different now? It looks kind of like he's looking less and less like a transformed human and more and more like a vaguely human-shaped tentacle. But that probably is because he's kind of in the background/distance instead of being focused on.
Maybe it'll look like this?Rhombaad said:I wonder what it'll look like on the inside? I'm expecting something a little different than the internal structure of a normal animal. It is a god, afterall.
Well it's all a matter of context really, I mean the Snake Baron's innards or even Rochine's didn't do anything special. It's the being itself that is connected on the astral level (and when the spirit departs, "normal" flesh is left behind). In that regard (but also due to sheer scale), despite the fact that the worlds have merged, the Sea God's entrails might hold very interesting things for us to see (like a scenery ); both the medieval imagery of the "mouth of hell" and the biblical story of Jonah and the whale come to mind.Gaahl said:Jokes aside, i don't even try to imagine the inside of this thing. The inside of an Apostle is (has been?) connected to the astral world, so what about the inside of an actual astral being? Let alone a god? There was nothing special about the ogres and trolls, but they don't really compare.
Scenery like, say stuff from 1,000 years ago? How about 10,000 years?Aazealh said:Well it's all a matter of context really, I mean the Snake Baron's innards or even Rochine's didn't do anything special.

This. I cannot wait to find out what the hell happened with the statue or who it is of.Aazealh said:Now this is fucking interesting. Ancient statues? Holy shit I need to know more! MORE!
My first thought was the astral world, but looking at it again, it looks like the roof of the Sea God's mouth.And inside its mouth... The astral world? Or is that just a graphic effect? Anyway, Guts compares the feeling of the cave to when he visited the Qliphoth!
My first thought was the leader of the merrows, or maybe something that predated the Sea God we're seeing now. If that's the case, it falls in line with Isma's story about the struggle between these two creatures.Dar Klink said:Those statues! I cannot wait to the rest of this episode, I wonder if Schierke will give any insight into what this ancient statue could be of. Perhaps it is related to Isma's people?
