Stages of Guts and Casca’s relationship in the Golden Age
Hiatus hit me so the last part of this series took me so long. I know many people have been waiting for this article and I’m just glad this monolith is finally done. Thank you for staying with me so far!
In this part, we examine Guts and Casca’s relationship after the waterfall scene. Miura humanizes Casca as a character a lot during these sections, which is why I think that she is much more than just a mere writing tool.
Attention: before you read further, be aware of the sex and references to rape.
