Guts and Griffith: Similarities and Differences

Guts and Griffith. They have a lot in common but at the same time, they are polar opposites. On one hand, you have this nihilist, dark-haired swordsman dressed in all black, and on the other hand a white-haired, charismatic man with a beauty that is not of this world. Now their actions do not necessarily differ that much either: They both will walk over bodies once their mind is set on a goal, for example. But looking closer, you will find their intentions and choices can make a tremendous difference in the end.
