I doubt she's dead. Guts grabbed the flower out and it's shown he took it out carefully with the root intact. He's just going to plant it outside with the rest of them and it will grow again.
So is her name officially Chicchi? And how's that pronounced? "Chick chee"?
sounds like, Gats learns the reality at an early age, about survival and choosing your own destiny in life.
also, isn't the second film released in Japan already?. If anyone knows any info on this, please p-post me.
