"Refugees on the West Sea" is episode 370 of the Berserk manga series.


The survivors of Elfhelm's destruction set sail aboard the Seahorse across the West Sea.


Roderick's crew bring a despondent Guts aboard the Seahorse. There, Serpico yells out for Farnese, before Puck points him to where her, Schierke, and Ivalera are. Serpico is relieved at their safety, but looks around at the refugees of Elfhelm's destruction and is troubled by the apparent absence of Guts, Casca, and the Moonlight Boy. Farnese breaks down in tears, distressed by her self-confessed uselessness during the advent of Griffith in Elfhelm. Isidro is similarly saddened. Suddenly, Molda appears and rallies the group, taking Farnese and Schierke to use their healing magic on the wounded. In addition, she informs them that Guts survived and was brought aboard, but was last seen unresponsive and mumbling to himself. She warns them that if the Berserker Armor activates aboard the ship, there will be serious consequences. Leaving Farnese and Molda, Schierke goes to find Guts, with Puck and Ivalera in pursuit.

A crew member informs Roderick that all the survivors are aboard, but that half of the cargo is lost. Undeterred, Roderick orders the crew to set sail across the West Sea before anything else happens. He asks of the whereabouts of Guts, whom he discovers is alone in the ship's cargo hold. Cautioning to the crew members that Guts should not be left alone, Roderick pounds on the door to the cargo hold in a vain attempt to reach the swordsman, just as Schierke arrives behind him. In the cargo hold, Guts stares intensely at the propped up Dragon Slayer. Overcome with a tremor, Guts collapses to the floor, and his sword, too, falls shortly after. Guts ruminates on his past as a mercenary, remembering how even when he had nothing and nobody else to depend on, he still had his sword. With his confidence in even that faltering, Guts sits in the dark, alone and in anguish.
