And that will allow Guts to strike the fatal blow.
In the end, Guts will be the one to kill the God, but he would never have succeeded without the merrows.
And I'm happy that Isma is reunited with her mother, but at the same time, it sucks...
Because, now, it's unlikely that she will follow the group.
I'm very sad, she quickly become my favorite character because she was so funny...
I wish she would follow the group to Elf Island...
Isma will be something like Luca, she was with Guts for the arc the she participated in, like Luca, Isma now has found her family, not just her mother though, generally her whole mermaid race, she felt lonely when she was with the humans on the island, or well the squid things.
Sonic battle? Sea God vs Mermaids, should be epic.
^Yeah she will be like one of those people around the world touch by Guts and co, so when they fight Griffith and become the enemy of the world, those people who Guts touch will be like nah his not evil.
I sense new chapter in Dec Kinda hoping Miura will do at least 5 chapters before feb when the movie hits.
Lol yeah, unless Miura does 10 chapters in a row. I reckon he will have a major one the chapter before elfheim because he will make it so beautiful. It's going to be 4-6 chapters left for this arc then it will be 2 chapters of Griffith doing something (like the people entering the kingdom and chatting) then Guts and co talk on the ship.
The thing that bothers me is that after this island there will be a bunch of chapters with them traveling to the sea to Elf Island, though who knows there might be another stop before Elf Island? This arc has had many important things already out open like the Sea God and Isma's story, kind of, they were the center points here, so this arc will take a few more chapters but still to Elf Island we may have even more.
Alright, I know I have been incredibly slow and should have gotten to this before, but I finally read Berserk thanks to countless staffers nagging me. Lately Josef K. nagged me a lot, thanks a lot man. Also a thanks to xi0 for being such a pain in the ass. Anyway, the manga overall was beautiful. That's all I'm going to say about that in this thread. Onto the actual chapter and story.
I have a feeling they will reach Elf Island next, even if it theoretically could be another major stop. Those damn pirates got away too, again... So I expect those bastards to show up again for comic relief and general randomness during the travel from this island til Elf Island. As for this arc's remaining lifespan, I would assume another 2-3 chapters to finish up the fight. The Mermaid song is definitely going to weaken the Sea God, enough for Guts to get to his senses and stab its heart. Hopefully Miura won't use too many panels on Guts getting out of the monster. This chapter was superb, but so sad for me. I didn't want to ever catch up.
Huh I don't know. The Pirates are somehow linked to the Sea God. Won't they be annihilated (or turned into human ?) after the god is dead ? I don't know if they have been killed before mutating or not, or if the God is channeling his "power" to keep them that way.
I'm a bit worried by Guts physical state. He got insane internal damage which, with his armor's curse (loosing his senses), would make him blind and deaf before his arrival on the island. Making him being able to communicate (and see ?) only through spirit until the elven king heals him or something.
