>No idea how to kill Griffith

The same way guts has killed tons of things way bigger and stronger than him.

With his fucking sword, you putz.
Aren't you supposed to be the amazing artists Kentaro Miura?
You know how to make a good sword fight. Fuck. Collaborate with kung fu movie choreographers if you have to. Draft up a story board that make it the most badass sword fight you can do. Make it so no sword fight in any media from any country could rival it. Make this sword fight your masterpiece.

God, I wish I could just boot him in the ass to motivate him

You could kill Griffith while he is in the form of Guts' own child.

Yeah. When Schierke tried to give guts an earth elemental axe, Guts passed on it and Schierke commented that he already had a dark elemental sword because it's been marinated in evil and has that soaked in zesty darkness flavor. Or something.

It's possible to lose without dying. Some sort of mea culpa, or even being forced to swallow a bitter pill and being left to "deal with it."

Isn't that how mortals used to screw over Gods in myths throughout history? Just pissing them off and making them fuck off somewhere in a huff, knowing they had no choice but to take the loss.

I'd love a scene at the end of Berserk where Guts just turns his back on Griffith again and walks away from him, like the devil having been refused.

Here we see Guts destroying a physical host of one of the Godhand. Slann's vessel was kind of ramshackle and not very stable, but it still sets an important precedent. I realize this is far from demonstrating his ability to "kill" one of the Godhand but it does show the potential for Guts to destroy Griffith's current physical form (Guts' own infant son)

>>101662197
Typos. Also I thought I might have had that page from Darkhorse but sadly I did not.
>>
>>101653959
Finally found the page where she states it outright.

Another thing, with the world's fully merged after Ganishka's demise, do the Godhand even require a vessel to manifest anymore? If the physical and ethereal planes are one, it makes it easier for they as powerful spirits to fuck around in the "real" world but conversely doesn't that make the Godhand, who were once formless spirits out of the reach of the physical, now much more vulnerable to attack?

I'm not so sure that Casca will want revenge, same as Guts. Especially if the connection with the Moon child turns out to be true

What Skull knight said could also refer to her getting her mind back. After all, she shut down for a reason.
>>
Remember back when things were simple?
>>
>>101674256

I don't think that the quest to kill Griffith was ever simple if that's what you mean. It was introduced as a practically impossible task from the start.
>>
>>101674172
Maybe Casca doesn't want revenge but Guts sure does. The only reason he went with Casca over pursuing Griffith was because he was afraid she would get attack like last time. She was a burden to him as much as his other companions.

The moon child being Casca and Guts aborted demon child is pretty high. The aborted demon child was absorbed by the tower apostle, who was to become Griffith's vessel in this dimension.

Right, I know that Guts still wants revenge, it was a poorly formed sentence on my part.
What I wanted to say was that I am sure that Guts wants revenge, but I don't think that that is what Casca will want if she gets her mind back.

I believe that everything material that happened before the golden age arc should be counted as non canon, since it was clearly obvious that Miura had no fucking idea what to do with his story (Guts fucking a whatever random slut and knowing that it was a monster, him being a really really fucking dick) and such.

Guts is a dick to people all the time.
>>
>>101683345

This was after the eclipse and before he met Puck. He was self destructive and angry. Take a look at the Lost Children chapter that comes after that chronologically - he is still behaving like a dick.

Besides, most of important story elements were introduced in the first arc: Beherit, Brand, Griffith/God Hand, Apostles, Demon child, Guts' revenge, etc.
>>
>>101684444
Is the behelit he picks up in the prologue the one he has kept this entire time?
The one from the girl-apostle was taken by the skull knight, I thought, and I can't remember if he would have had a chance to pick another one up afterwards.
>>
>>101684591
yeah the one from the Count is the one he owns
>>
>>101684444
The God Hand was shown in such a clumpsy way during the prologue, everyone who reads it knows it's Griffith since before the Golden Age even begins.
>>
Isn't it just poor health keeping him from putting stuff out properly. I mean really isn't it something like him having a weak heart. All of the hurr hurr idol master jokes aside
>>
>>101684721
I personally thought it was great, because knowing that Griffith has clearly wronged guts from the prologue arc makes the entire golden age arc more tense. Just my two cents.
>>
>>101683345
I couldn't possibly disagree more. Guts being a dick not long after the Eclipse and slowly becoming less of one over the course of Black Swordsman, Lost Children, and the Casca Rescue arc is an important part of his evolution as a character. Yes he was a cynical, angry, belligerent asshole. Yes he was constantly telling himself he didn't care about anyone or anything and that he lived on only for revenge. Puck foreshadowed that wasn't all there was to it, but at the time that was what we were meant to see; and it's been used to set up a rather important plot point.

That side of Guts we're talking about, the one where he's a murderous dick that drags everything around him into his rampage and leaves only scorched earth behind? Ya see anon, it's still there! Just underneath the surface. Now with the Berserker Armor and all the evil Guts has submerged himself in, it's taken physical form and wants to pick up where Black Swordsman left off. You make the terrible mean Guts at the start non canon and suddenly you've got a pretty decent sized hole in the plot.

Also, fucking the succubus apostle to get close enough to blow her head off ISN'T something Guts would do? Getting fucked up so that Apostles let their guard down and grab him, then shooting them point blank with the ol' hand cannon is practically his signature move. Only difference in that "fight" is that he didn't have to get crushed or stabbed or burnt or electrocuted or burncrushtrocuted beforehand.

That was the point, I thought. It's not suppose to come as a surprise that Griffith becomes Femto. You already know he's Femto and he did something to really make Guts upset at him, and then over the course of the Golden Age you find out who he is and what he did and why Guts is such a grumpy gus.

It's not clumsy - we were meant to know Femto was Griffith from the moment he was introduced. Guts says his name several times and even has a small flashback where we see young Griffith and Guts on a battlefield.

What was not shown in the first arc is HOW all of that happened. How Griffith became Femto, how was guts branded, how he lost his arm and eye, what is the demon child that haunts him, etc.

Between the Guts/Griffith shenanigans, friendships, Griff's conspiring at court, the band of the hawk, and Guts' fighting a hundred dudes, it's just fucking captivating. Even if you take out the eclipse and just read up until Guts leaves, it's a damn good story in itself.

No! That would suuuck! I want Guts to invade Falconia. If this happened he wouldn't even get to fight the Neo Hawks. If Miura really is tired of Berserk and just wants it to end though, I could see something like this possibly happening. I'd be really sad though.

Then just keep watching rehash after shitty rehash of the Golden Age arc in anime. I'm the opposite, I'm tired of the fucking Golden Age and understand that its purpose wasn't to define Berserk, but to lay the groundwork for what it was meant to be: Giant fucking monsters vs. a pissed off knight.

Fuck the Golden Age, really. I like it, but I can't stand all the attention it gets. Pisses me the fuck off.

>>101685722
I doubt he'll be entirely wrong and I doubt we'll see Casca as a competent party member and mini-Guts hellbent on killing her one time idol. But we'll see.

>>101685768
As far as spoilers go, it's fairly big, but will not ruin the whole story for you. You'll still enjoy it. Also we're way, way, way past that part in the manga now so there's still plenty of stuff that will come as a surprise.

>>101685831
That's one of the mysteries. We don't know if the old Griffith is still in there or if he's become a different person or if he has a split personality or anything. We just know that Griffith's memories are still in there and up until now Femto has pursued the same goals Griffith once did.

There were several monsters in Golden age, though. Eclipse is a part of it too.

>>101685831
Well, he's not exactly the same - he's evil and much more powerful. Bear in mind that his current shape is merely a facade - he is still Femto (see how he reveals himself while on top of Ganishka), only in body of flesh.

I believe that it is safe to say that there is no more "old Griffith" - he has become Femto. However, once he was made flesh again, he made himself look like his old self so he can achieve his old goal of getting his own kingdom and so he can better deceive everyone into thinking he is their saint and savior.
Some part of Guts and Casca's child still remains in his new body, though, as demonstrated when he saved Casca, and we have yet to see in what way and if he is connected to the moonlight

Could be, but somehow I don't think so. They have a lot of magic users there and the Elf king is supposed to be very powerful himself. Can't wait to see what he's like.

I'm pretty much gonna assume Casca does not want to be un-retarded, due to the trauma.

What they will be able to do on the Island is wipe her memory 100%, in which case she may or may not love Guts after getting to know him again.

Or Guts will just leave her on the Island to live happily.

Either way, it's a shitty idea.

>>101688874
Or she gets healed and has to deal with her trauma, like Guts did.

>>101688821
I'm kinda hoping that Puck is an important person there. Maybe not the king of elves, but perhaps an elf prince. I'd like it if he was the primary focus of the arc besides Guts and Casca, sort of like Schierke was in her introductory arc.

By the way, anyone care to guess why Rickert is afraid of elves?

Because of him meeting Rochine before? But he gets used to Puck pretty quickly.

Well, we know that he is not the king (that's The King of the flower storm) but he might have a lot of old friends there, yes.

I would like to see how will Casca interact with Guts' crew if she gets her mind back!

I would pay good money to see a comedy spinoff between the ascended Griffith and Guts as they wander around Berserk land lightheartedly above all the suffering and poverty around them.
>>
>>101685483

Because at that point in the story, Guts was too far gone in his own homicidal vengeful insanity to really think about that kind of thing. Everything chronologically after the eclipse but before the Tower arc basically is Guts at his darkest and most insane.

>>101687565

Speaking of Zodd, does /a/ subscribe to the theory that Zodd may somehow be Gut's father or ancestor?

>>101688370

More likely it'll be crazy isolationist and paranoid and it'll turn out that Puck got banished for seriously fucking something up.

In other words, just like Ohta Gunga.

This is Berserk, he was probably raped by an elf.

Bingo. I think that's why Miura made Rickert scared of Puck at first. I think Casca will get her mind back, but not handle it very well at all, and then Guts will have the Fairy King take her memories away or something.

Eh, mostly speculation, but you have similar hair, pointy ears, general bestial attitude, fondness for oversized weaponry (although Zodd's at least fits his massive frame) and bloodthirsty tendencies. Could be a coincidence, but Berserk doesn't generally have a lot of coincidences.

Zodd's bestial traits are all standard apostle traits. And being bloodthirsty in the berserk universe doesn't constitute a coincidence, it's a requirement.

Their hair isn't similar, just black. Zodd has a widow's peak and it's spiked up. The pointy ear things is just something Miura does, it's on other characters including Gambino and is used on completely normal humans in some of his other manga. Their attitudes are pretty different but there are parallels between them, just like with most of Berserk's characters.

Theresia backstabbing Guts when?

>>101694568
Slann seeks to embody sex and carnal desire. She's the Whore Princess of the Uterine Sea after all. Her appearance reflects that. The Godhand are powerful, so why wouldn't they be able to look however they want? Maybe the other Godhand don't care as much about fucking? Would be my response to that person if they were even here to read this.

Another theory to go along with that is that Slann is the youngest current Godhand next to Griffith, and that the older they get the more monstrous they become until they eventually turn into those weird woodlouse looking things. I bet that's totally wrong, just something I thought up with no evidence whatsoever, besides the two of them looking the most humanoid with Ubiq and Conrad both looking the way they do and Void somewhere in between.

It'd be cool if some humans far from Falconia would go full Monster Hunter style, maybe the survives of a kingdom who got the short end of the stick in the whole trans-dimensional ordeal that took place.

Maybe we could even have a White Hawks 2.0 of monster experts, and Guts doesn't really have to be the only badass. You don't have to be super fit to be one.

What do you think would be a good, "realistic" reason for a bunch of people to hate Falconia? I think that's what is most blocking Miura, it'd be hard to create a motive for someone to hate a perfect utopia.
>>
>>101687162
Makes me wonder how many weeks he spent drawing that picture.
>>
>>101696427

Because people don't want utopia, they want to be free and decide their own destiny. That's the whole point of Beserk: if the IoE is canon, then the entire universe is a terrible dystopia ruled by a despotic force of fate. Guts is trying to fight fate and decide his own life.
>>
>>101695139
Speaking of whuch, there's a new Godhand every two and a half centuries or so, right? Since there are always five at most, does that mean the Godhand have finite lifespans of about 800~1000 years?

If Conrad is on his last cycle, that might explain why he seems a little off compared to the rest
>>
>>101696736
I'm under the impression most anons don't realy understand what causality means and think of it as fate when in fact it just says that everything man does is a reaction to what happens.
also even if Guts wins it doesn't mean causality doesn't exist just that the Godhand calculated it wrong

I wonder if the Idea of Evil will reintroduced into canon again, the unpublished chapter pretty stabilished that there's no real goodness in Berserk's universe, their god is literally making sure that evil will always be a mainstay and that people who act kind are just going against the flow.

People were much more liberal about sex in medieval times, and we aren't bombarded by sex, quite the opposite, lots of people used to live in small houses and care for animals as well, this means children would experience sex first hand right away.

See you next thread. But yeah, I wish I could get off this crazy boat ride myself.

Just how long do you expect people to keep their patience? People always joke about it, but at this rate I can actually start to see a legitimate worry that Miura might drop dead before this series ends.

im worry.

Casca sucks

Berserk is the Game of Thrones of Japan in that the author is a useless fuck in poor health and is gonna die before completion.

But they are different in that Berserk isn't shit.

I hate Casca so fucking much, goddamn

I hate her pre-Eclipse

I hate her post-Eclipse

I fucking hate that bitch
>>
>>101718011
>I hate her pre-Eclipse
All of my why.
>>
>>101718039
She's a bitch and she should just die. Like that time she punched Guts in the face. She's a menstrual annoying slut. None of the men in the Band would ever punch Guts because they aren't idiotic little girls.
>>
>>101718130
>None of the men in the Band would ever punch Guts
Or because they knew he could break them in half.

Explain how Casca is a slut when she was a virgin into her 20s despite being surrounded by men all the time.

>None of the men in the Band would ever punch Guts because they aren't idiotic little girls.
Corkus tried to sneakily assassinate him several times. That's less manly than punching him.
>>
>>101718207
Casca wants a pussy pass and she wants to be a man and be respected like one. Fucking bitch.
>>
>>101718233
Corkus said he aimed his crossbow at his back a few times but never actually did it, which is different. That's an attempt on his life, not punching him and using your pussy as a shield.

Casca NEVER did that. She never said anything like "you can't hit me since I' a girl". In fact, she gets angry when Guts treats her that way.

Don't blame Guts' betaness on Casca.
>>
>>101718516
She knows he would never hit her back, don't try to pull that shit.

That's more of Casca's bitchiness. She KNOWS and tries to act that way regardless
>>
>>101718566
Again, you're blaming Casca for Guts' faults. It's HIS fault that he wont fight back.
>>
>>101673486
he's gonna have to kill the kid too isn't he

I hate Corkus so damn much. I bet if Berserk aired today there would be threads full of /dance .gifs celebrating his death.
>>
>>101695139
How offended would you be if someone called you or your sister/mother whatever a Whore Princess of the Uterine Sea? Would you call someone else a Whore Princess of the Uterine Sea?

It's canon. Flora said that there's SOMETHING in the abyss. The stuff coming out of it's arteries in >>101701579 , Those are souls. They make the abyss and feed the Idea. Like Vargas did. I hope, if he decied to reintroduce the Idea, Miura would rename it. Idea of Evil is a stupid name.
