* Chapter 348 shows Casca's dream: [[spoiler: Guts is a wounded dog carrying her coffin, suffering as he attempts to protect her from harm, the coffin itself hold a broken doll of what used to be Casca with a tiny version of her present, insane self spinning around. She doesn't have a great opinion of herself.]]

** What's sad in end of itself is the fact that stomping through Casca's dreamland, they are going through unaltered memories. Farnese and Schierke, both of whom share feelings for Guts, aren't going to see him as the brooding Black Swordsman they've come to know and love. They are going to see Guts laughing and smiling along side Pippin and Rickert. They are going to see him lovingly hold Casca and experience something along the lines of joy in his life. Then when the see the Eclipse, which is bound to happen, it's only going to hammer home how torn apart and broken Guts came to be before meeting them.

*** And this was just after he had [[spoiler:[[TakingTheBullet thrown himself on top of Casca to protect her from the whiplike tentacles of a demon out to eat them both and taken two of them straight through his body for her]]--and because he's right on top of her, Casca can see every look of pain on Judeau's face as the monster is attacking him--just before using his last throwing knife to put out its eye, setting it up for Casca to finish the monster off]].

* Even after all these years, the original anime version of the Eclipse preserves its power. For example, the scene where Femto rapes Casca while forcing Guts to watch. It's very minimalist compared to the original manga, as well as the 2013 film ''Advent'': Casca's body and the act itself are largely obscured by Femto's wings, and there's very little actual movement going on in each frame. Part of this is because LimitedAnimation is par for the course in old-school low-budget productions, and because they have to censor it a lot for television, but these constraints actually result in a very powerful use of limited animation and cutting between still images to show the characters' emotions, while emphasizing how everything is about eyes and vision. We don't see what Femto is doing to Casca, but we see her upper body and her face as she suffers her violation. We see Guts with his body covered in wounds, pinned down by the claws of a dozen demons with his eyes filled with tears of grief and rage. We see Femto almost unmoving as he rapes Casca, giving Guts an emotionless KubrickStare. We see the faces of Ubik and Slan, as Slan says how beautiful it is to her. And lastly, we see from the perspective of Guts' right eye as the demon's claw pierces it, engraving the image into his mind forever.

* Seeing Guts as the Black Swordsman at the end of the Golden Age storyline, walking into the darkness alone. Some fans may describe this as [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome a badass moment]] in Guts' story, which you can rightfully claim too, but this moment makes me extremely sad, especially in the movie interpretation. Why? Because Guts is shown to have such capacity for optimism, hope, and happiness, not to mention that the creative team behind the movie obviously went through the effort to make Guts look very cute and just damn adorable in so many moments (fangirls particularly like how Guts was given "pouty lips"). Mentioning that says a lot about Guts, since you can hardly imagine the guy who was smiling and twirling around in a ballroom was the same guy who gruesomely slaughtered a hundred enemy soldier weeks prior. And seeing Guts warmly smiling at Casca and crippled Griffith in the first half of the movie is so heartbreaking when you finally watch the Eclipse... and then the final scene of the movie shows Guts as this dark, gloomy, brooding, scary, monster of a man who had every fiber of his being destroyed and his heart and soul uninhabitable for happiness. Seeing Guts become the Black Swordsman broke my heart.
** The final few minutes of the movie in particular were one big tear jerker. As far as sad moments go, it was exceptionally well done: the look on Guts' face when he sees Casca's condition, the mournful music playing in the background as he runs through the field, the images of everyone he's grown close to flashing before his good eye, and last but not least that ''scream''. It all adds up to show the pain of a man who has lost everything he loved. When the credits roll, one can see all too clearly that the man who the viewer has grown to know and love is effectively dead, and in his place has emerged a much darker person.

** To make matters worse, this is the [[DownerEnding last scene of the final episode]]. And with Skull Knight AdaptedOut there's only a tiny bit of solace in the epilogue ([[WholeEpisodeFlashback and the]] [[HowWeGotHere first episode]]) confirming that Guts survived.

* Chapter 347 mostly has a bit of light heartedness to it and even a good spark of hope when it's revealed that yes Danann can heal Casca of her broken mind. Just a simple romp through dream land right? [[spoiler:Except that they need to be the unaltered memories. From before her current state.... which means THE ECLIPSE. Poor Casca has to relive that horrifying moment once more.]]
