Wait, really? Is that stated on the magazine? If so, can you please translate what it says?
台は再び妖精島へ 目覚めたキャス力、そしてガッツとの 新たな日々が始まる "The stage will return to Fairy Island Awakened Casca, and with Guts A new day begins"
In general you shouldn't trust machine translations. And while I'm no translator myself, "Fairy Island" is the literal translation of Elfhelm, which you can see the kanji for at the bottom of the first sentence. So yeah. But I don't think anyone should be shocked at this info. We've been saying this since the end of 358 made it pretty clear where the story was headed next.

One thing I'm wondering is if some time will have pass since we last saw Guts and Casca or if we're gonna pick up pretty where we left of : the scream?
I believe time will have passed. It wouldn't make sense to have changed perspective otherwise.
It'd be cool to have an opening scene similar to when they were on the ship. Ex: having Casca sparring with Isidro or something of the likes. Seeing her getting back slowly into action. Not necessarily Isidro but you get what I mean.
The immediate topic that needs to be addressed is Casca's mental state after the scream. I can't imagine Miura would skip past all of that and jump straight into her integration into the group dynamics. My guess is maybe a day has passed, maybe less? But things are still unresolved between her and Guts. They might not have even spoken yet (I hope not, because I want to be there for that).
Or it could start with them (Guts and Casca) sitting somewhere with a very nice setting (not near water!) and just about to start talking. I really dig Aaz approached too with Casca fainting.
If the faintest glimpse of Guts was enough to make her start screaming, I think the readers need to see how they were able to sit down together amicably.
