Episode #338 will be published in Young Animal #15 (24/07).
I've gone back and forth on it for a few months now, but I think it'll be focused on Guts' side of the story.jackson_hurley said:Well this is an interesting news! And hopefully the monthly resuming will come. My girlfriend ain't excited though (still haven't succeed in converting her ) I talked about the slap scene for weeks! My money on a switch to Guts crew. Now the question is : one last episode on the sea with Elfhelm on the horizon at the end or more likely Elfhelm in the middle and a punch at the end? (That is if we have a switch to Guts)
Either scenario, I'm just glad to have my favorite series back!
Even if that scenario is what we would like to see, the timing feels right. It seems logical and well paced to return to Guts' journey and in a few month, get back to Rickert/Griffith side. That what i was thinking myself since episode 337.Walter said:I've gone back and forth on it for a few months now, but I think it'll be focused on Guts' side of the story.
While it would seem natural to ease into the Skellig sighting, I wonder what the major action would be for this coming episode. We've already had a kind of summary episode in 331, reviewing the current circumstances of each character, and alluding to the coming changes. So then for me, that leaves whatever getting close to Skellig will involve. Perhaps they'll start noticing strange things in the sea, sky, etc. leading to comments from Schierke, leading to the inevitable and long-awaited LAND HO. Miura has accomplished feats like that in a matter of pages though. So I wonder... (as always).
But of course, let's not get too excited about that possibility if we get another Falconia episode instead I've long been the guy trumpeting how interesting it would be to learn a little more about the circumstances behind the scenes at Falconia -- particularly about those guards who were found unconscious, and of course the aftermath of Rickert's slap on those closest to Griffith.
It'll be a fun challenge for sure, can't wait on those amazing insights as always.Walter said:Not sure our podcast production rate could keep up, either
Real talk on the monthly thing:rayhato said:This is interesting. What caused such acceleration? it's been 2-3 EPISODES for a year last few years.
Not quite. While 2013 was a big drought and 2015 has been empty so far, 2014 saw 10 releases (Berserk & Gigantomachia) and 2011/2012 both had seven episodes.rayhato said:it's been 2-3 episodes for a year last few years.
Sounds plausible to me, and I also think he may have finally worked out all the stuff he needed to storywise, and can therefore get on with things.Walter said:So I think it's more likely that he took this past year to build up a bulk of episodes, which when spread across a longer release period (once per month instead of twice), means he can more easily regulate the release pace according to his own working schedule.
TL;DR: Maybe he created a backlog during the break, which he can slowly exhaust while continuing to work at his own pace.
That pretty much what I had in mind. Building a bunch of episode in advance and while they get to be release he keeps working on newer ones. It's what I'd try to do if I was a pro. (Still trying to do that with my own comic but hey I'm way ahead of being a pro)Aazealh said:Not quite.
