In this post I'm going to dive deeper into the origins of the Demon Infant and how and why he changed into the Moonlight Boy - and we're going to find out why him assuming human form actually makes a lot of sense, and that Femto is actually possessing his body.
This post is going into (almost) every detail for anyone who dares imitating his art and writing: I'm going to dig into the tools he uses, his planning process and how the visual means he uses affect the reader on an emotional level. It will also show you why exactly both Miura's art and writing is one of a kind.
Short answer is: a lot. Their goals and motivations are so alike Miura even reused almost the same dialog in some spots. Casca and Farnese both struggle(d) to get closer to their idols, Griffith and Guts, respectively, but there are still a few small, but important differences.
Taking a look at the art in previous arcs and compare it to newer ones. Given the recent interview by Natalie Comics, we'll find out the reason why the style has changed recently is the involvement of his assistants!
Farnese's character was shook and burnt down a couple of times before she eventually ended up joining Guts on his travels. She mostly invoked the change on her own during rebirth scene, but through Guts' subtle guidance after she joined him she found purpose and meaning. How this happened you can read in this article!
A few visual parallels I managed to make out in the newest episode.

His sex-appeal also lays in the combination of his personality, body language and appearance. While his looks definitely are enthralling, it's really only the frosting on the cake!
I feel like the reason why Casca screams seeing Guts in chapter 359 is similar, yet different from chapter 355. There, it was somehow somewhere connected to Griffith and completely losing her dream of being something invaluable Griffith. In chapter 359 however... it becomes clear to us why she really is having this kind of reaction on seeing Guts.
In this article, I will dig into Casca's mind and intentions and make a couple of observations from there. We can find out a few things about the direction Berserk will take from this point onward.

Do you think we’ll ever get another love scene between Guts and Casca? I hope they’re able to reconcile and heal from their trauma together. It seems like from the current episode (note: episode 359) that Casca isn’t consciously deciding to react like that to Guts (she very well may feel guilty for her ptsd, … Continue reading Will Guts and Casca get back together romantically?
