“A friend should never rely on another’s dream… he must have a reason for living that goes beyond me… For me to call a man ‘my friend,’ he must be my equal in every aspect.”
Three years after joining the Band of the Hawk, Guts is shocked to hear Griffith’s words. He believed that his mission was to pursue Griffith’s dream together with him through all the fierce battles and struggles. In order to become an equal to Griffith, Guts decides to leave the Band of the Hawk.
Around the same time, the Hundred Years War between the Midland Kingdom and the Empire of Chuder enters its final stage. Midland’s elite force, the White Tigers, attempts to take the impenetrable Fortress of Doldrey but is confronted and annihilated by the Holy Purple Rhino Knights led by Chuder’s strongest general, Boscogn. Seeing this as a perfect opportunity for his Band of the Hawk to advance, Griffith proposes to the king of Midland to send only his Hawks into the battle to capture the infamous fortress. Guts decides to make this battle his last with Griffith and leave the Band of the Hawk.
30,000 enemy soldiers vs. 5,000 Band of the Hawks… a bloody battle fraught with peril is about to begin…
