I'm sorry who?
It's gattsu, dammit.
It's always bothered me how people find the name "Guts" implausible. The guy was named by a merecenary asshole who hated him when his insane wife found him under his dead biological mother in a pool of blood and afterbirth. And you really think that it's that farfetched that they wouldn't give him a semi-insulting ridiculous name? Should just be thankful he isn't named Placenta
I like his horse.
Also, inspired by a German mercenary named Gotz.
Yeah, beat me to it. Guts is just a lousy author-chosen romanization.
The name Guts really fits him, however.
Looks like Trogdor.
Miura stated in an interview that he created Guts independently and that he did not find out about von Berlichingen until after several volumes of the manga had been published.
IT'S GATTSU AND GURIFFISU, ASSHOLES. GET IT RIGHT.
