And there goes my theory about Berserk armor not activating against Femto. I thought it had something to do with barytes and Femto controlling the elementals, but no, turns out Studio Gaga just likes the rapey face from 300 chapters ago. I still don't understand why they insist so much on Guts' sword or his juvenile rivalry with Griffith. Guts knew about Femto being an Absolute being that can only be hurt by those outside history and thus can't just be bisected by conventional means. Skull Knight informed him about that, did he forget? He's going to need a special technique to kill him, like when the Merrows stunned the Sea God with their chant. And the Elfhelm characters being written away into irrelevancy is so...ugh.
