After this, we get to see how Lady Farnese and her faithful companion Serpico are doing out in the snowy cold. Turns out: we get to see an entire flashback to how they met in the first place. Serpico was a poor boy, turns out the son of her neglectful and wealthy father, and by chance circumstance made him her page (taking all her abuse over the years without giving her the information that he is actually her half-brother), and spends the years dealing with her obnoxious, spoiled tyranny and pyromaniacal habits.
Seriously furthers the story on. A "Must Read" for all Berserk fans, like myself.
Plus...we get to treasure the introductions to Griffith's new entrants to his newly resurrected BAND OF THE HAWK. And...oh, how freaking perfect they are. Zodd is the only demon of the group, the other three are human (I'd assume) but are so advanced in their skill it's just foreboding that Guts will have quite a struggle in having to deal with these unstoppable fighters. (If you've ever seen "Spirited Away": Well, one of them is much like the weird character No Face, just to give you a clue. HOW...FREAKING...AWESOME!)
But don't get to excited, in order to get to Griffith, Guts will have to deal first with the bodyguard he brought along, and once you see who this is, you will understand that this is easier said than done. Well, Miura can't bring the series to an end yet, you understand. To compensate for this, the author does deliver in terms of moving the plot forward in this volume. This is one that is packed with story aspects. Of course, there is action, but there is also more developments than in your typical volume. I think it took me almost twice as long to read than most others.
We also get to meet some amazing new characters that have come to join Griffith in his quest. They were directed to him by the oracle and are ready to wreak havoc to help Griffith achieve his goals. As if this was not enough, we get a brief glimpse of some new characters that will aid the other side of the coin. Moreover, towards the end of the volume we take a detour into the origins of the relationship between Farnese and Serpico, and many questions get answered here.
If you want to gain a greater understanding of the overall plot that guides this series, this is a must-read volume!
Back in the dark ages of europa .
A dark swordsman he roamed
In that ancient land of gothica .
After revenge he sought
Against demons , for betrayal
From a man he once believed
To be a friend with no denial.
The twenty second folio :
Readers of the twenty first folio
That knight of hawk
Upon a demo , flown .
Alas he returns not the same
With a horrid companion
A demon insane
And Upon our one eyed warrior
Attacks , a murderous cain .
And of lady farnese and her servant
You will see
Their innocent childhood
snuffed off glee .
