Title: 人魚(メロウ) - Merrow
Finally the merrows arrive! Just as planned. And it looks like Guts' body is reaching its limit...
In other news, there'll be a break starting with the next issue.
Yeah, adorable is the word. The Moonlight Boy eating her tail is cute is well.Gobolatula said:Holy Christmas Isma is adorable as a merrow. GAHHH!
That shot of them with the moon in the background is great.
Looks like it's high time they did, too. It seems that Guts might not be able to make it alone this time... Oh who am I kidding, of course he will!Gobolatula said:I'm glad to see all the merrows coming to the rescue.
Hmm, they don't carry any weapons in the shot of them we have... So, magic? Unless they can summon harpoons somehow (Isma's skill with it as a fishergirl is a hint towards the "traditional" merfolk weaponry). But I wonder what they'll do exactly if it's magic.Walter said:The undersea cavalry has arrived! Now... what exactly are they going to do against the Sea God? Act as a bulwark to stop him in his tracks, or will we see some merrow-magic?
The merrows will sing a song and The Sea God will go to sleep.Aazealh said:Hmm, they don't carry any weapons in the shot of them we have... So, magic?

Based on the voice(s) she heard in the last episode, I'm guessing her transformation was triggered by her response to them arriving (where she spoke her true name), and not the other way around. They probably sensed the Sea God awakening after the merging of the Worlds; either that, or the merging prompted their return to the solitary island to make sure everything was still okay.Walter said:It may be moot at this point, but I'd like to know if Isma's awakening as a merrow was triggered by the group of merrows arriving, or was it the other way around. Or simply a coincidence...
Astral style.Piscator Solitarius said:I absolutely love Isma’s “new” eyes. (Her eyes were like that when Schierke saw her for the first time back in episode 312 so ‘new’ probably isn’t the right word.)
There's also the fact that plain warriors would likely not be very successful against the Sea God unless there were many, many of them. Thing's huge and its "beard" in itself is a huge threat to humans and merrows alike.Piscator Solitarius said:And it’s great to see the merrows finally arriving! Honestly, I was expecting something more… martial. But now that I think about it, I like the way Miura has presented the merrows more than if they were armed and armored sea-warriors. It’s more traditional plus it leaves me feeling curious and excited to see what they do next, something that a group of armed warriors with a relatively straightforward intent probably wouldn’t be able to accomplish. I can’t wait to see the them in action.
I'm curious as well, and I think we'll get the answer. I definitely do not think it is a coincidence, though. The two are linked.Walter said:It may be moot at this point, but I'd like to know if Isma's awakening as a merrow was triggered by the group of merrows arriving, or was it the other way around.

Indeed! Poor girl.Draculoid said:Isma flopping around the deck trying to cover herself is quite cute.
I think the pressure/environmental hazard caused by his surroundings/the heartbeat might be starting to wreck his body. Notice that he's bleeding from the nose in that shot.Draculoid said:I wonder what exactly Guts is going through in there...
