this chapter was awesome because
seriously, its been ages now
so finally guts and company reach elfhelm island although i must admit its not how i had pictured the island.
i had imagined this huge island swarming with wizards and elfs but this seems to be pretty much in ruins although the inhabitants of the island must have kept this illusion in order to ward off uninvited guests.
next chapter should be full of information and stuff. i am rather surprised (and happy) that the pirates fight ended this soon i was thinking it would take the end of this chapter but i am glad that miura finished it off and moved quickly to the island
Judging by the modest introduction, this place is little more than a waypoint on the journey. It's likely Roderick came ashore to let the crew stretch their legs, and allow any damage sustained by the ship to be repaired.
When Elfhelm does eventually make its entrance, I expect Miura will give it the same grandiose treatment he gave Falconia (and given its importance, I'd be disappointed with anything less).
Berserk is getting interesting again with this chapter after some time.. Now we prrobably saw only prelude to Elfheim. It looks like story will finally go forward. Damn.. I hope there will be no more sea travelling in this manga- and elf king will somehow "teleport" them out of the island without getting on this boat again Im wondering what is that thing from the last page???
Remember, Skellig is (was) a mystical island, situated upon the Interstice and imperceptible to ordinary humans. It's populated by mythical creatures and powerful mages, and is the last bastion of elvenkind. I just have a hard time believing this dull, little hamlet could be part of such a place, and that we'd receive such a low-key introduction to the island itself.
Plus maybe the Island went under a transformation due to the merging of the planes...the villagers killed off by the mythical beasts that inhabited Skellig since the beginning.
Puck: Behold! The land of mine home! I hath returned!
Isidro: Guts, come quick! We're here!
Guts: At last.
It's not just the village itself, but the way in which Miura presented the whole thing pre-landing—it was... kind of undramatic, don't you think?
I think that that's an island inhabited by monsters.
Like it's an island where the people are forced to serve a demon/monster etc. When guts and co kill it/them they go to elfheim.
