All these breaks, and you would think that we'd get a full color chapter instead of a black/white one.
It's depressing seeing all these manhwa on a quick bases, and then I get a Berserk chapter that last less than 20 pages and is in black/white...
It's depressing really...I want MOARR!!!
Ok, I'll calm down now.
Evil Genius has released their scanlation. Berserk has reached average shounen level with super high quality graphics. And it used to be overall super HQ. It's a shame :/.
That was a pretty funny chapter thanks to Isma. I can't exactly make out what's happening to Gatts though, especially since I can't read the sfx. What's happening to him? Are the eyeballs shooting out some shockwave?
As I see it, the true name is just a thing to wake up the power which is already in your body and is limited to the magical beings so I doubt and hope it won't play any bigger role
Apart from that chapter was ok, not much happened but it looks like Guts is in big trouble now. I wonder how he will get out of this, seeing that the mere presence/will of the Sea God can harm him that much (at least I didn't see any kind of attack from the God)
Hope the break won't last too long :/
I am pretty sure true names are limited to spirits [like Esma is a water spirit hence she had a true name] . So I am pretty sure , Gatz will have to live w/o his power up .
The only thing I fear on the other hand is that maybe Femto will have a true name [I consider him a spirit since his reborn origin is related to the other world )forgot the name)] which Guts might try to know to defeat him . I mean Femto is now nearly invincible and so are the other God-Hands .
Also the problem I found with the chapter is that now it just feels that the arc is being dragged out . I have read Berserk in Golden Age arc and it seems that the mangaka is for some odd reason trying to really reveal his biggest weakness of not being able to work with multiple scene narration properly .
Finally , for those who couldn't understand , it seems the fish were using some super sonic attack on Gatz since his armor made the physical attacks useless , so they are using his weakness of being a human and attacking him through the armor instead.
As for the concept of the mythical names, whether or not I like it really depends on where the author takes it, this can be a very very cool thing, or it could be quite lame, but I suspect that it's just background noise with little effect on the plot, mythical creatures exist, now they can be human civilians too, and you can change them to their true form by calling out this name.
Btw, another hilarious one was when isma was about to say her true name, and that crewmate guy was listening in attentively. Also I think the fish were sucking the air out of the room, along with the sea god expanding his chest cavity, causing guts to depressurize and suffer a bad case of the bends, which was what made him bleed like that, could be sound though, I would think that would just be your ears if that were the case.

I was always under the impession that Griffith/femto isn't exactly invincible because he was reborn in a body. Unlike the other God Hands who are purely spiritual Griffith was reborn on earth so that he could do with it what he wants. I'm guessing this means that they have to have human forms to interact with the world. So unless the other GodHands decide to be reborn on earth I don't think they are going to be the ones that Gatts hunts. I think their roles are limited to roles of...well..gods I guess. Watch over and tempting.
ah kopta. Don't worry too much about the direction of Berserk at this moment. Just wish for this arc to end so we can move on.
The sooper sekrit names are indeed, as mentioned, limited to spiritual creatures. I believe Puck will become a "proper elf" in time. But I don't really care about that. I can live without a volume dedicated to his character development or whatever.
Guts will come out of this battle almost dying, and they'll have to arrive at the Elf Island in time to save him. So elf island after this battle is the next arc, most definitely. It cannot be avoided anymore.
The merrow is so sexy.Elf Island here we come.Caska shall return and the group well finally learn about there son.
You should brought up this question probably in Berserk Discussion thread. No, there still wasn't a official confirmation that this little rascal is Gutss and Cascas child so we don't know if he is their son or not. I actually hope that he isn't. It would ruin all that tragedy that their son is gone (or just his mind if you want, body is Griffith now) and that's the last thing that "now-happy-Berserk" need.
You know what Sea God? Kill them, kill them all! Except Guts, Casca and Puck (I hate his comedy mode, though).
At least in these issues we have pleanty of images of a heart with eyes. You know, like my personal obsession in this manga: Idea of Evil.
I have no theories about that child whatsoever. I'll just patiently wait for Miura to unfold it for me hehehe.
Let's say that the Fantasia Arc lasts for 100 episodes... Miura makes about 10 episodes a year. That's about 10 years for this arc to last.
I predict that an answer or means to defeat the Godhand aren't even in this story arc. Maybe in the next one, so.....
I'm just saying to all the complainers ARE YOU REALLY GOING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE DIRECTION BERSERK IS HEADING FOR THE NEXT 10 YEARS?
