>He seeks to soar to ever greater heights
But after he gets his country/world, what is the next step?
Will he sacrifice Falconia and its citizens?
Will he backstab the other God Hand members and become the Idea of Evil himself?
I think Miura is planning an apocalyptic ending. I don't know how Guts will defeat Griffith or destroy Falconia but I think that in the end only a small group of people will survive.
Humans are already decimated everywhere and it will only get worse after the destruction of Elfhelm.
That's why i think Griffith will backstab the others.
All of them are still alive, and there's no way Guts could kill them in rapid succession. Only another Godhand member could, and i think Femto is the only one capable.
It all depends on how powerful Void is in comparison to Femto. Void seems to be the Big Bossman of the GH but idk. And we already know they can't foresee everything, which was proven with the arrival of Skull Knight in the eclipse
The meaning of CLANG sure has changed these days.
That would make him too overpowered. The gap between him and Guts is already big enough. I'm sure Miura is trying to wrap things up at this point. I'm betting the Moonboy will have something to do with Griffith's downfall. In a way, that child is the offspring of Guts, Griffith and Casca.
>what is the next step?
My dick never asked for this
early on in the Lost children Arc, Farnese and the other holy knights chasing Guts down mention that the prophecies that foretell of the coming of The White Hawk also mention something about a black knight figure.
Miura has carefully not mentioned that stuff since. Likely some point in the future Farnese is gonna info dump the part of the prophecies mentioning Guts' role to play in the coming death of Falconia.
Sacrificing Rickerts and all the lolis would be the greatest sacrifice Guts could do.
His Neck is mostly berserk armor based at this point.
That fucking neck, good christ.
Griffith is not the person to look into the interests and greater good of anything or anyone but himself and views everything he uses to achieve his dream as his tool and property, even if he's a Demon Lord now. He activated the Behelit, manifested into the physical plane, and created Falconia to achieve his dream. The Godhand however seem to have a particular agenda that may or may not end up interfering with his own. And shit might go down from there.
>moon child keeps getting older
>as it grows, its facial features change
face ends up looking like a white skinned donovan
Possibly, but Gut really hasn't played any sort of role in the formation of Falconia, adding a bunch of stuff involving Guts into any church prophesies would seem pointless.
More likely, the prophecies are the God Hands' own "real" "true" foreshadowings of what is to come, and Guts has a greater role to play .
or the prophecies' talk of a "white hawk" is referring to Guts and Griffith is the Black Knight it warned against or even more likely - Miura's forgotten about that shit in the idol filled haze he's lived in the past 20 decades
GRIFFITH WANTS TO BE KING OF EVERYTHING
BUT IN THE END HE WILL BE KING NOTHING
I didn't mean in regards to Guts, just in general. The core idea is the same, of the white hawk messiah (who is in actuality the antichrist), it's just that we (and Guts) are aware of the dramatic irony at play.
The funny thing about this page is that if you re-read all of Berserk so it's fresh in your mind, absolutely nowhere did Griffith even hint at wanting anything more than his own kingdom, and nowhere did Guts get the impression that Griffith wanted more.
Even the scene at the hill of swords merely goes back to about getting a kingdom. Unless Evil Genius and Dark Horse both fucked up translating with a 10.0 magnitude, that's a fact and this shit is pulled out of his ass.
Not that it doesn't make sense mind you, cause people always want more but the way Guts words it is basically breaking everything that came before the boat trip.
He knows Griffith better than any other single person in the world does. Griffith doesn't need to have said, "And by the way, once I have my kingdom I'll definitely want more" for Guts to a) assume it or/then b) be right about it.
But Guts never saw it that way, even after he realized Griffith got fucked over due to him.
And yet for over 300 chapters Guts gave not a single line in dialogue or monologue about it. He doesn't even have a vivid imagery to symbolize such a thought. It's completely out of nowhere for Guts, read it again.
How do you know, though? This is an incredibly vague complaint that relies solely on the assumption that we know every single thought that's ever gone through Guts mind. In that vein, we don't know he hasn't thought about it.
Maybe I'm misunderstanding you.
this. besides, becoming a god to fall back down to king isn't something griffith would do. his idea of "kingdom" expands on more than the physical world
How far into the story is the anime going?
No, he is motivated by his dream, but if his flawless track record is anything to go by he does fight for the greater good. He's gone out of his way to make his followers happy. But I agree that his only obstacle now is other God Hand members, especially Void.
Because if Miura intended for Guts to develop thoughts towards the main antagonist completely out of nowhere despite having 300+ chapters to do so, that basically tells us he's shitting all over the story telling style he's used the whole fucking time.
Berserk isn't some incredibly complex piece of fiction, the patterns have always been there, and aside from a few junctions where it could go one or two ways (of which both are predictable) it has always been about the execution not in the cleverness of outwitting the reader.
Let's take a look at the Flowerstorm Queen, that's a great example. If she was actually written as king with the male character and not just Ou, that would be a comparable ass pull. But it wasn't. It was gender neutral.
There is always a hint, a reference, etc because pulling shit out of nowhere is no different than Isekai where an MC just magically pulls out a new RPG ability without even building up to how he got it, only for said RPG ability to crush the obstacle in his path. Do you think that's what Berserk has been like all this time?
Completely out of nowhere? Did you skip the first half of the manga completely?
The interactions of the characters are pretty complex.
I don't even understand what you're complaining about.
Going off the same vein, another example is if all of a sudden 4 archangels appear (cardinal 4 directions yo look at muh callback) that rival the god hand, and Guts becomes the last one. It's in the same vein where it's hard to claim it's impossible for it to happen since nothing contradicts such an event and you can see how it might work given how the world tree merged everything, but that doesn't mean it's just pulled out of the ass.
That line from Guts was basically made because it sounds cool.
How about you find me examples in the first half of the manga where it hints Griffith wanting more than his own kingdom then? I'll wait 2 hours, anything more and you're just incompetent. Not just his own kingdom, MORE than his own kingdom. Where his kingdom is just a stepping stone and not his ultimate goal.
You know, the fucking goal that he sacrificed his beloved comrades for? That he hesitated over with and even tried to tell Guts to back off right before shit hit the fan? Can't you put a bit more effort as the high priest of hypocrisy your eminence?
Then again given how retarded your post is I'm sure Berserk is complex to you but summer is almost over you know so fuck off.
is this supossed to be foreshadowing the idea of evil? the words she says about it being a collective thing, and the double helix on the holy see's symbol thing.
It's kinda funny that, when I think about it, all of which that happened to Griffith, Guts, and Casca, and the entirety of the band of the hawk would've been avoided if Griffith didn't went full retard after Guts decided to leave.
the chapter i posted or the chapter with the idea of evil? this chapter i posted is still in the manga, the idea of evil chapter, god of the abyss 2, is not. you can see the idea of evil in one panel during the eclipse, he appears before child griffith. thats it
Then Griffith would have died a normal king instead of being a god hand. Pretty shit deal from his perspective if you don't factor in meta knowledge like how he'll die cause the plot demands it.
You aren't comprehending properly. I'm asking whether or not the chapter of that page panel you posted came out before or after Miura took out the Idea of Evil chapter from the revised volumes.
The implication is that if he took it out before, then it's possible that the chapter was done deliberately to further reinforce the Idea of Evil, as it's already been introduced and therefore means jack shit because once he removed the idea of evil he also pointed out it's entirely possible it might not come back.
On the other hand if he drew that chapter after the Idea of Evil was removed, then it means he's still attached to it enough to foreshadow it.
Yeah I know, it's just that sometime I wonder how things would've turned out if Griffith, again, didn't went full retard.
Would he have continued his ascension in nobility until, finally, he'd have a shot at becoming a King?
Would've Guts found his own dream?
Shit like that.
So what's gonna happen to Farnese once Casca gets her memory back?
He would have, assuming the God Hand doesn't fuck him over. But they would, so even if God Hand decided to not make him into one of them, they'd just get him fucked over for their next candidate or just fuck him over for the hell of it.
It's harder to say about what would happen to Guts, given how he is outside the bounds of causality to some degree, and it's also reflected in how as a character he lacks the personality to really anchor himself to anything. Were it not for Casca you can easily imagine him just doing whatever the fuck he wants even if he manages to chill out after that ordeal with the eclipse.
I mean think real hard about how he acts like when he was at the harbor. He was perfectly willing to let Farnese's parents and siblings die and leave with his crew, but that has more to do with him not having put any thought into it and just being a my pace kinda guy. And yet that my pace is exactly what blinds him to so many things. In fact it's the core reason that led him to leave the Hawks the first time. He's just one dense mother fucker, and that hasn't changed much even when he's trying to.
And it's exactly because his personality is completely my pace, that Griffith can't steer Guts towards his own pace, leading to the fallout. Simple no?
Possibly, King of Midland liked Griffith before he slept with his daughter.
At the very least he could of become regent to Queen Charlotte after the king passed away, not that he would be satisfied with that.
>tfw a miscarriage ruined your engagement.
Dreams like that are awful, and that image is a kick in the nads.
There'll be fighting over who get the D.
On a more serious note though, Farnese wanted to go with Guts regardless of Casca and got the role of caretaker shoved on her because she couldn't do anything else and Casca somehow liked her.
Beside, she's also Schierke apprentice now, so I'm guessing she's here to stay for a little longer.
Are you referring to rape ape and Zodd? Please be specific, and in the former's case, that was clearly just Zodd showing an interest towards them having personally tango'd with the participants and being impressed.
What's with the insane amount of shitposting these days? You really think we need it to be spelled out for us that griffith is a highly ambitious man? Guts knows him the best. He knows Griffiths hunger and drive. So when he sees the dude kill a fuckton more people to return to earth in the tower of conviction, start forming demonic armies and start fucking around with reality, it confirmed to him just how far his ambition goes, even if griffith doesn't know it. That's why he says this right after wizard dude tells him what happened to the great tree. Anyone can make that conclusion at that point. You're thick-headed.
And it wasn't the dream that made griffith complex it was his interactions with those around him. Its what he shaped himself to be. Similarly with guts and his interactions with many other characters as well. There's no predictable pattern either because I expected the grim nature of the story to escalate as a crescendo. Instead I got a healing arc. It went from typical monster hunter story in the beginning to political intrigue and medieval warfare in the golden age. Im not seeing any predictable pattern. So get off your high horse and stop acting like you know better than everyone else. You're not a literature professor, you're an anonymous dumb fuck posting on the asshole of the internet.
Check this shit out.
They always make sure to emphasize the fact that Dragonslayer has become pretty much enchanted with all the apostle blood. Griffith will break the physical sword but the spiritual essence of the sword will remain in place. Guts will then kill Griffith by "slicing" through the him and the body he was inhabiting will revert back to his son.
You took over an hour just to make shit up with generic and vague garbage post, by your logic Guts being the 5th archangel is perfectly fine, since he is the one who defies death by constantly facing it, has numerous encounters with magic from Schierke, and is now completely in a realm of the astral plane with the Flowerstorm Queen guided by fate.
I can list symbolism as well, that doesn't mean I didn't pull it out of my ass. Do you know what callbacks are? What you posted is merely a callback, not foreshadowing. Just because you can make a conclusion from something doesn't mean it's foreshadowed otherwise fan fiction wouldn't exist it'd simply be spoiling.
Griffith's interactions with others around him and shaping him isn't complex, that's fucking basic of the basics. What the hell have you even read in your life? You are clearly just refusing to see what other common works portray and simply analyze the shit out of Berserk when you can do that to every other fucking shonen shit even bar crap like Fairy Tail.
>because I expected the grim nature of the story to escalate as a crescendo. Instead I got a healing arc.
Ah I see you're totally a newfag and Berserk was baby's first seinen. It's embarrassing how you took this long just to out yourself as a nigger from /v/ who doesn't know any better just like when you defend your shitty favorite console.
No one needs to be a lit professor to see things coming from a mile away, you just need to not be new, experience does the rest you virgin.
But the proof is already given in your post alone. You took this long after chimping out with short posts before citing a vague example that doesn't actually clearly prove anything, it simply proves how far Griffith will go to reach his original goal and has zero bearing. If the story took a turn where all Griffith wanted to do was defend his kingdom at this point, you wouldn't be able to say shit because it'd still make perfect sense and nothing contradicts it.
First off, I'm not that anon. Second, you're the one chimping out while trying to look smart.
>Guts as the archangel
That's not a thing you can join you dipshit. And griffith wanting more isn't an asspull. At this point his ambition and goals are all he has. He always seeks to control everything. He's shown to have an insatiable hunger and is willing to do anything to sate it. He's already become a holy figure of sorts which is already substantially more than what he dreamt of in the golden age. If the rest of the world isn't a hellhole already, then he's more or less the leader of the civilized world. He's already achieved more. The wizards expository dialogue just confirmed all this for guts and its by no means a negative thing. Its obvious. You don't need 30+ pages of internal monologue to see where this was going. Even if there was little foreshadowing.
Griffith isn't complex? His characterization is mediocre? Have we read the same manga? You know its funny how many people you've berated for being simpletons in your eyes yet you haven't substantiated any of the claims you make. Go ahead and point out how Im overanalyzing anything. Because so far you're oversimplifying what's been presented and calling anyone who disagrees an illiterate nigger. Cmon, go ahead. Show me how berserk and its characters are comparable to bar crap like Fairy Tail. Show me how well-read and edified you are. And try do so with actual proof. Because anyone can say something is mediocre, basic, simple or lackluster. Calling me a nigger from /v/ doesn't help you in anyway.
>Y-youre a total newfag I could see things from a mile away
That's the gist of what you said andI fail to see how its predictable when that is exactly where the story's gone. How was it predictable other than its because you said so? Ill fucking wait for a thesis if I have to. Go ahead and write a critique if you want.
None of what you've posted have proven anything. I can aptly say "Right back at you".
Not the anon you were arguing with, but you dismissed one of the best aspects about berserk as comparable to shonen or any common work. I don't care to argue with your bullshit but I am curious as to why you've bothered to keep up with the story or follow any of the threads since berserk fans seem like illiterate simpletons to you. Why not just call us idiots and fuck off like all the other shitposters?
Casca cucks Guts again with
>tfw have all these boat memes
>tfw no use for them anymore
Cast spells and shit.
She's learning that because her role as Casca's baby sitter is coming to an end. Though that doesn't mean Casca will get her memories back, she could just as easily die.
Casca is going to be put into a "healing coma" or some bullshit that will allow Guts to go off and do his thing without having to worry about her. She's basically going to be the Yuria of this series.
I think it is far more likely Guts will decide against restoring her memories, she's better off not remembering the horrible shit she went through, but something bad will happen that will force her to get her memories back.
To add to the archangel analogy, that would be contradictory due to the fact that guts is established as an exceptional human being. Nothing more, nothing less. He is compared to a fish jumping out of water within the whorls of causality yet like the fish, he cannot change the current of the river. So to become a deity or to claim he's been guided by fate is ridiculous. And the archangel/cardinal beings have never been joinable. The four angels in gaiserics story are different, they are the godhand. All in all you're wrong.
>Q3: It's been years since the last artbook release. There may now be enough content for 2 - 3 additional books. Do you plan to release any more based on your sketches and paintings?

>Griffith pulls a reverse Eclipse and all the humans eat the apostles
Do you fucking retards even read this manga?
>To take his country... rather... to make it the only country... it defies understanding.
This is from 345.
young Griffith -> I want my Castle
pre-Eclipse Griffith -> I want my own kingdom
Femto -> my kingdom will be perfect and it will be the only kingdom in the world
The more powerful he is, the more he wants but it's all about him being a ruler.
Does anybody know where these come from? I'm assuming it's from one of the artbooks; I don't know which one, though.
Will dump all the ones I have
Griffith is a parody of Christian God.
Falconia is clearly the New Jerusalem. His goal is to destroy the old corrupted world and create a new perfect one. Only people from Falconia will survive the upcoming apocalypse.
>when you just want Berserk to end so Miura will be free to draw magical girl manga
-Theory: Farnese has gotten such a large amount of characterization is because the behelit that guts is carrying is actually hers. It just makes sense from a storytelling perspective that the character we have the best picture of how they think would be given such a difficult choice. How this would actually go down in the story idk other than than Serpico would probably be the sacrifice. OR VICE VERSA.
- theory for shits and giggles. Caska somehow uses the behelit out of fear or her mark being weird(Mark doesn't cause harm to her. via her demonchildprotectionthing) she can't sacarfice Gutts b/c he is already branded. (stated very early on.)
least likely thing happening but just tossing it out there.
> Tits witch activates the behelit
> becomes semen demon like slan
> the ritual has her kill everyone in elf island, including elf king
> casca is forever retarded unless guts go back to hell and retrive his soul
> another boat ride to falconia to force griffith to fix this mess
The same religion says that the Falcon of Darkness will come, and things will go truly to shit. Remember this?
The religion isn't evil, per se. In fact, it is WARNING people of what is to come.
Schierke said that their holy scriptures were influenced by pagans. She also cited this prophecy so it's probably older than their religion.
Of course I'm simplifying. Griffith is a messianic figure from many religions. That's why even some Kushans joined him.
The Christian God (and their religion) venerates pussy shit like compassion and weakness (see Nietzsche for more on this). Guts is the only figure that shows any of these traits and he is the weakest major character in the series right now. That's pretty much the only possible way Berserk could be interpreted as a parody of Christianity.
>>He seeks to soar to ever greater heights
I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high
Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I'm dreaming,
I can hear them say
Isn't that the route he was taking anyway? Griffith has a faint attachment to Guts, most likely by his sheer determination plus what >>146461003 said. The one thing that made him crushed is the fact that without Guts, he's incomplete and over time he will have to come to terms that he didn't achieve anything but took Godhood by mere chance. Personally, I see Guts and Griffith to be pawns that were played by demons.
>Implying he still doesn't have the hots for him
It's from Konami's Berserk trading card game. This was back in 2003-2005 and they made 5 different "volumes" (=card series). There's tons of colored artworks from panels or new artwork Miura did for the TCG, so much so that the cards are very hard to find now.
This site shows all of the artworks though http://www.berserk-tcg.net/bk1.html
Citation needed anon. We don't know how old either one side is or how exactly they came to be. We only know for a fact that the religion started to spread widely around floras time. And that the sorcerers and holy see venerate the same beings only they interpret each a bit differently. This is purely speculation but I think they were all one group at first then they split. The main religion saw some divine and benevolent force at work behind everything and created "God". The sorcerers saw that this was just the forces of the supernatural I.e. magic. At least that's what I think.
>Farnese has gotten such a large amount of characterization is because the behelit that guts is carrying is actually hers. It just makes sense from a storytelling perspective that the character we have the best picture of how they think would be given such a difficult choice. How this would actually go down in the story idk other than than Serpico would probably be the sacrifice.
I have a hunch that i wrote this exact text weeks ago so i think its a pretty decent theory. However ive started to think its less likely because i really don't know how she could possibly get into a position to use the behelit.
>Almost 30 years and there still isn't any decent quality porn of berserk
>No doujins or even smut
All Im asking is for something good with decent art. It doesn't have to be on par with miuras art. Just similar. Why is this so hard? Im tired of seeing all these parodies of lame seasonal anime on sad panda. I want a mindbreak doujin with farnese. I want femdom with slan.
There are halfway decent doujins. Just a couple though. Protip: its not his sword the granola bar is covering
I thing the main problem is what Griffith said to the princes. Something about that his true friend should have a dream and that person even can kill him for this dream. That's the point of this conversation if he wasn't happy that Griffith become his true friend? This conversation was just a bullshit.
The majority of that speech was empty words to impress the princess. In the end, Guts and Griffith were equals, Guts was never Griffiths "property", and I think Griffith realized this during his year long torture.
Schierke said that the Falcon of Light is the Falcon of Darkness. He's the king of the blind white sheep (humans who worship him) and the master of the villainous black sheep (apostles). The prophecy has passed since the Millenium Falcon arc. The apocalypse has happened while they were on the boat.
>Guts makes it to Falconia
>Its a pile of rubble with Griffith sitting at the top, sobbing.
>"V-Void told me that this was a hazing! They destroyed everything!"
>Guts awkwardly pats his shoulder and walks away.
>Farnese's only purpose in Guts & Friends is taking care of retard Casca
>Feminine elf dick cures retardation
>Farnese finds herself without purpose
>Uses behelit to re-retard Casca
More interestingly, Griffith apparently made him forget that he hated being touched.
>What is increased muscle mass
Your neck are has muscles in it, you'll notice a lot of strongmen and body builders have it a bit thicker in the neck, how else is guts supposed to lift dragonslayer without having gotten stronger? A plot brand on his neck will only get him so far
>Sacrificing all the lolis
>yfw we get the CLING ending Devilman-style
Guts also points out that Griffith dares to imagine and then achieve things nobody else can.
>I found someone I really wanted to look at me. He didn't have anything, yet he was trying to take hold of everything. And something about him made you think it could happen.
i created and level this account to level 5 and then i see i have two premium chest, is this normal? i thought they gave onyl one
As long as the big ass tree thing hanumascara turned into stands and fills the world with his light, so too will Femto and Falconia, both of which are ideals from the realm of ideals, be able to fully physically exist in the base world of man.
People are kinda missing out that Griffith's weakness is that his ideal can be chopped down with a big enough axe.
There are a couple of cards Miura can play to possibly bring out Griffith's end
>Griffith was reborn from Guts' abomination child, thus carrying its heart
>Elf King/Moon child/Other fantasy entities
>The Behelit that Guts carries
>Other God Hands not playing nice
Slan was just her using troll guts to troll guts.
Eclipse, when he first had to use the dragonslayer, the black knight arc, mothtits, mozgul and his merry band, the sea god, the kushans, and a fuck load during that year while he was still travelling just himself and Casca.
if guts just shoved his stump up griffith's butt would that make him able to control the god hand?
Is Casca half Kushan?
Could she be like slave girl from a previous war?
What the fuck is Casca's race outside of
I feel like someone would have remarked on it if she were Kushan, seeing as the Midland soldiers were shocked to see the Kushan in the Neo-Band of the Hawk although she may well be a slave girl seeing as she was being sold when she was a child. I've always just assumed that she's supposed to be white with a heavy tan, assuming the Moonchild is hers, then she just has a white child, it fits with her tomboy personality, and I may he remembering incorrectly, but wasn't it mentioned that she worked on a farm before she joined the Band? If so, then she could just have a farmers tan.
ganishka did literally nothing wrong
Of course he will. He's a douchey megalomaniac with boundless ambition, like Napoleon, or Alexander the Great. He couldn't stop even if he wanted to, and he doesn't want to at all. His self worth is all important, and that self worth is wounded if he is not in a position of superiority. What greater superiority could their be than being God or as close to that as possible?
He's already masquerading as the Messiah of Midland, why not one step further and seal the deal of being God?
Am I degenerate if I'd like to see guts doing farnese with serpico forced to watch and bullied by isidro and phuck with casca drooling around as usual and schilke touching herself in a darker corner?
Pulling this from my ass, but perhaps he is an apostle because he sacrificed his world, and he is a part of his world, so his world didn't receive the brand, only he did.
He's not masquerading as anything. Both the manga and the Lost Chapter make it very clear that Griffith is exactly what humanity wanted. Whether it's a good thing or not remains to be seen. Also:
>hating on Napoleon and Alexander the Great
As far as rulers go, few were more enlightened and forward thinking than these two.
Why are we so sure Skull Knight was sacrificed?
Don't you think we'd see the brand by now if that were the case?
I mean, it seems pretty obvious he was, so why not outright show it? Not showing it only makes me wonder if he really was.
>Both have the same hair style
>The only 2 that aren't elves who has pointy ears
>Both use hueg weapons
>Both are "Warrior" incarnate
I'm not convinced he is, but saying it's a retarded theory is in itself retarded.
And Zodd is a 300 year old Apostle who only drifts from battlefield to battlefield. He doesn't have any interest in having sex. Plus I'd imagine that Apostle babies would be demons considering that every time an Apostle fucks around with a human they either die or turn into an apostle-lite.
Plus Guts being the son of a demon kinds of undermines his struggle as a human.
>I'd imagine that Apostle babies would be demons
Guts has been compared to a demon NUMEROUS times throughout the manga, before the Berserker armor. Enough times for it not to be ignored.
>Plus Guts being the son of a demon kinds of undermines his struggle as a human
Like i said, i'm not convinced either way.
>people are STILL getting tricked by the edit
Ubik seems like a cool dude. I'd hang out and drink tea with him.
But i'd much prefer to be in
Slans femdom realm
Guts is a natural Omega turned Alpha.
Griffith is a natural Alpha turned S U P R E M E.
Berserk will never end because Griffith and the God Hand are too powerful.
Miura is just waiting for every Berserk fan to die so that he can leave the series to die in the dust.
I don't know, I feel like someone from Midland would have remarked on a Kushan fighting for them if that were the case, like they did more recently, and it's never made clear. It doesn't really matter anyway, it's not worth wprrying about.
this is in Vol23 just after the Fernese flashback
She starts hating him a few pages after this but before the rape. Guts dives to protect her from spirits and gets semi possessed and chokes her a bit, then has to tie her up cuz she wont let him near her.
Some further convincing is when guts blantly says "FUCK YOU. I'm human, the real deal, right down to the fuckin' marrow of my bones" It's not a great translation but I can't find it anywhere else so it will do
They say if you say reversed "NAMEK" three times in front of a mirror this guy appears and punches your face. Scary.
You're thinking of the Hawk scans buddy
Yeah. Pic related
What if the way to cure Casca has Guts go into a journey to her mind, and Retard Casca is another personality with the old Casca?
It'd be interesting to see Retard Casca actually speak coherently.
>if she can't be cured I'll kill myself
He's really dying inside.
What if while during the ritual to give her her memory back everyone else will see what she and Guts went through and someone bashes him for not having the right to make her go through that again? Like "you egoist cunt, she was lucky to forget all that, you only tought only about yourself", will Guts go on an homicidal rampage, will he commit suicide? Both maybe?
Knowing the megalomaniacal bastard griffith is, He'll probably only do so if it means the entire world is in the palm of his hand. Fuck man, Megalomania doesn't even do griffith's dream justice
He would've made a pretty darn well decision.
The enemy of your enemy is always your friend.
I think it's been calculated that a mangaka has like 4 hours of free time weekly.
Miura is no fool, freedom ain't free if your manga is shit, but his is really good, and sells well, so he uses this to play Idolmaster and enjoy the NEET life.
Probably broweses 2chan, that smug cunt.
>Implying an sjw cunt would try to talk down on a child rape victim, amputee war veteran, who has become the physical manifestation of PSTD with a PoC waifu and closet homolust for the God Emperor of Androgyny, Griffith.
Guts is their god.
She's doesn't have amnesia, she's just insane. She remembers the eclipse whenever someone tries to rape her
Miura likes to torment Guts
It's basic duality.
Griffith is a heartless monster under the guise of an angelic messiah.
Guts is a true human being under the guise of a black beast.
There's no need for a dumb twist involving his origins as some kind of apostle bastard, he's just a kid who pulled through countless horrors through his own determination and force of will. Anything else would undermine the point of his journey.

It could be argued that Griffith is more human than Guts.
It's pretty self explanatory. To save Casca, the only person he's able to save.
He slowly managed to face his own sense of loss and guilt over the Eclipse, and through interaction with the new band of the Hawk, his goal went away from revenge and instead to protect the one he loves. He mentions that a lot after the Conviction arc, how "his sword is now heavier to wield" now that he doesn't only swing to kill. And naturally, this page resumes perfectly that if he was allowed to, I'm sure he would perfectly love to chill in some random island with Casca and the rest of his group for the rest of his days. Naturally, some shit will force him to fight Griffith anyway, but it's obvious the Guts from Black Swordsman has clearly not the same mentality of the Guts from Elfheim.
>It could be argued that Griffith is more human
Griffith is beyond human, always was, and always will be. For the better or worse, he was always described as a being "above the rest", and he is completely egoist, even in the Golden Age arc. He only cares about getting his Kingdom and "getting to ever greater heights" constantly, and didn't hide that he only used the Hawks as a stepping stone for him in the same way he's obviously using Falconia as a stepping stone. He only cares about himself, while Guts, even during his edgiest phase, always cared about others to some degree. They're not comparable.
Because I'd let my friend go and pursue his own dream since I don't really need him anymore. Griffith had no reason to keep Guts under his thumb. Guts would have probably came back once the Kushan invaded anyways.
Midland probably would have been fucked though. I mean Ganishka and his demon shit would have been pretty unbeatable if it wasn't for Griffith and his apostle army.
>Griffith had no reason to keep Guts under his thumb
its clear he wanted Guts as Guts was the only person he had ever considered a friend
its quite ironic that Guts left Griffith to become his friend and because he was Griffith's only friend Griffith lost his shit, triggering Griffith's desire to attain the world that was only sated by having him as a friend
eventually leading to his downfall and the eclipse
Tbh senpai, when my only friend left me I also became slightly hostile towards him which eventually lead to passive aggressiveness which eventually lead to my inevitable doom and now I'm friendless.
I never cared too much for Casca, much less the Band of the Hawk, but now I tend to forget Casca even exists. I just want Guts and Griffith to be reunited. I mean, it'll happen, right?
I always forget his ass isn't this full and perfect
>you will never touch the booty
>Not attempting the impossible in the face of overwhelming odds
>Not doing it for Casca
You'd probably get raped by a horse or something in that world with that outlook/willpower
>Not attempting the impossible in the face of overwhelming odds
No please don't do that.
is it even a possibility for Griffin to challenge the other God Hand
if any thing he is still bound by his past mortal life moreso than the others
that can either be a hindrance or a strength depending on how Miura's feeling
First, Gambino is his father, not the nigger. The nigger was Donovan.
Second, it's because they didn't hold hands. Donovan was not ready for this stage in their relationship yet.
>that was certainly a direction I never foresaw
Went there the other day posting a feel thread and I got literally one reply. Noticed the rest of the board was all about banging dudes who wear women's clothes.
Times sure change.
well its not so nice when it happens to you anon,
I remember when r9k had actual interesting discussion back in 2008
then you people moved in and muscled out everyone else
now someone else moved in and muscled you out
just deserts I'd say
>VI.14 (vico degli Scienziati); 3042: Cruel Lalagus, why do you not love me?
I like this one

He just took an already existing city. He didn't magically materialize a city in the middle of the desert or something. If he had true reality warping powers, he wouldn't need apostles that want to kill him to serve him.
You I like you
I'm pretty sure they would've lynched her during the witch hunt arc if she were considering that it was the Kushan driving the people to live there. Heck she would've been the first one to get witchhunted. Pretty sure she's some kind of brown ethnicity, maybe from some other part of the world. There's more than 2 countries in the world after all, otherwise they wouldn't need a boat to find the elf "king".
This is what we wait a month a chapter for at best? 7 years on a boat for this shit? Guts has aged about 15 years and turned into Arnold Schwartzengger mixed with Kurt Russell and has a next twice as wide as his head. Miura is a fucking hack, jesus christ
Good Manga ain't free. The tree of good Manga gotta be littered with trash unfortunately. Rushed greatness is the bane of my existence. Quality needs it's time, okay? Praise Miura.
