Title: We should have a VS in the encyclopedia.
Post by: SlimJ87D on March 13, 2006, 08:45:28 PM
I was wondering if you guys would like the idea of having every single fight in Berserk that went one on one summarized and put into the Encyclopedia. Skullknight.net has a great encyclopedia dedicated to an anime/manga, and it seems like it's always improving. Well for those of us that have read most of the manga and would like to relive the fights, we could go to a section where the fight is summarized with pictures much like Dynamite Gloves (http://www.dynamiteglove.com/index2.shtml) does with every fight in Hajime no Ippo.

Well it's just a suggestion, and we can all work on it together.

It sounds like quite a huge undertaking.  I personally don't have time right now to write something like it, but feel free to take a stab at it yourself.  If it's accurate and entertaining enough, I don't see why it wouldn't be Encyclopedia worthy. 

It'd also be a valuable addition to the forums so, my advice is to post it here and let the community at large edit and add to it as they see fit. Working together, it shouldn't take that long.

I'd love to help :) So would we be going in chronological order story-wise or volume wise?

My vote is by volume.  It's the logical choice, and afterall, it's the order Miura chose.

Look at the dynamite gloves page I put, they have it pretty organized.

I think if a lot of people want to help, the best approach would be a list of the fights. Any fight that isn't done can easily be seen this way. If a lot of people want to help, this would be a pretty quick and painless way to do it.

I've checked the site SlimJ87D linked and their summaries look really easy to do (1 or 2 pictures with a few lines explaining what happened), it wouldn't take me long to summarize all the series in that fashion. I don't think it really needs to be a collective project, if someone's motivated enough they should be able to tackle it in an afternoon.

Some of them are quite long. There are major fights and just spars in the summaries.

This is the average major fight

Yeah it doesn't take too much work if you just do the opening scene and the ending scene, but I started getting more and more carried away starting with Ippo-Sendo II.

Here are some longer ones -

http://www.dynamiteglove.com/datevsmartinez2.shtml
http://www.dynamiteglove.com/takamuravshawk.shtml
http://www.dynamiteglove.com/ippovssawamura.shtml

What I basically do is take notes in Word and save the pages to a folder while I'm taking notes. I use CDisplay to save the pics while reading.

Then I edit them out with Adobe Photoshop and Save Them For the Web under Medium Quality.

It takes a while, but Berserk fights are differen't. They don't last for volumes at a time (some HnI fights go on for two or three volumes) and there aren't as many volumes of Berserk as HnI.

So you guys should be able to do this pretty easily. It's just important to get a system down and stick with it.

I still have 20 some volumes of fights to cover for Ippo.

Peace

I like that idea. It would be good to nail down which fights to do and which not since there are some fights that end with a single thrust and aren't necessarily worthy to mention along with major battles (IMHO). Well, here's what I can recall for now.


Black Swordsman (Volumes 1 - 3)

Guts vs. Lord of Koka Castle
Guts vs. Zondark
Guts vs. The Count


Golden Age (Volumes 4 - 13)


Guts vs. Bazuso
Guts vs. Griffith (I)
Guts vs. Zodd (I)
Guts vs. Boscone
Guts vs. Griffith (II)
Guts vs. Silat (I) (During that tournament)
Guts vs. Silat (II) (In the camp of the hawks)
Guts vs. Wyald


Retribution (Volumes 14 - 21)

Guts vs. Boar-Apostle (?)
Guts vs. Roshinu
Guts vs. Azan
Guts vs. Serpico (I) (very short)
Guts vs. The Goatman (?)
Guts vs. Mozgus


Millenium Falcon (Volumes 22 - current)

Guts vs. Zodd (II)
Guts vs. Ogre
Serpico vs. Kelpie
Isidro vs. Troll Captain (very short)
Guts vs. Gurunberd
Guts vs. Sea monster
Guts vs. Serpico (II)
Guts vs. Daiba

Post by: Chung on April 18, 2006, 10:42:29 PM
Well, I was trying to keep the one on one theme, since that was what SlimJ87D originally intended and that "Guts vs. Golems"-fight looked more like a joint effort of the whole group to me (like the fight against the trolls, the familiars and the daka). But I totally agree with you on the 100 Men fight, since it's the fight that earned him his respective title. 
Maybe some categorisation would help, like: "army vs army", "group vs group" and "one on one fights" or something like that. Dunno.
Title: Re: We should have a VS in the encyclopedia.
Post by: Walter on April 18, 2006, 10:54:05 PM
Well, since the fights in the series get progressively more group-based, I think it'd be a mistake to simply omit the fights that Guts had help in.  The Daiba fight is a good example.  If it were only Guts vs X, then  we'd have to omit this fight.
Title: Re: We should have a VS in the encyclopedia.
Post by: Chung on April 18, 2006, 11:08:34 PM
I didn't mean to omit them but rather label them differently to avoid misconceptions. (Plus, it looks a little more varied if it's not all Guts vs. X.)

So which fights would you include then, as a general rule?

If any fight's going to be included at all, then all fights worth mentioning? It wouldn't cost anything to add the smaller ones. Anyway, nothing is being done right now, no use reviving the thread just to list battles (especially since the ones deciding what would be included are Walter, Griffith and I).

You guys even forgot Isidro & Puck vs the pirates (with Mule's help in the end), what a shame. :void:

Sorry about that, I thought we could make it clear which fights you find worth mentioning by doing that list, but If we're going to do all fights anyway there's no point in arguing over that. I get your point now, so I'll just shut up for now. Just one more question though: Is it okay to host images of the fights on , say, imageshack or photobucket when doing those summaries? Since it's just excerpts there should be no problem with that, right?

If you just want to submit summary examples you can host picture anywhere you want, however making a summary doesn't mean it'll automatically be featured in the Encyclopedia. This would show that there is some real enthusiasm for the idea though.

Are there really any fights that aren't worth mentioning?  If they were given the time it would take to draw them out I think they have some significance to the story.
I don't think it should just pertain to Guts' fights, or have some level of involvement by Guts to be worth mentioning.

Well...
(http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/8291/167copy0hc.jpg)
But then, it might be a good idea to include those too for comic relief, maybe?

Anyway, here's my attempt at doing a fight-summary, please bear in mind that I'm not very good at writing, especially in English, so everybody, feel free to post your own summaries or change the phrases as you please! It's still pretty rough but that's basically what I had in mind for a summary.

VS

(http://img149.imageshack.us/img149/7721/smallroshinu5yz.jpg)
     



The fight takes place in Roshinu's lair with the self-proclaimed elf queen trying to seduce her childhood friend Jill into becoming an elf herself.
(http://img118.imageshack.us/img118/5875/eggs1cy.jpg)

Her attempt is hindered when she realizes that her whole lair has been set on fire by the black swordsman who is now not only destroying her lair, but also killing vast amounts of her servants.
Furious, she orders her minions in an all-out attack to dispose of the intruder once and for all. But Guts proves to be a lot more than just a mere "strong onii-chan": In a kamikaze-like action, he throws himself into the fires, burning himself in the process along with a majority of the elves.
Afterwards he pierces one of the cocoons to let it's contents extinguish the fire on his body.

(http://img240.imageshack.us/img240/3268/burn9up.jpg)


With no more minions ready for battle, Roshinu joins in the fight, only to find herself cornered shortly after due to the disadvantages provided by the battleground (eggs). Yet, she still manages to barely escape Guts killing blow and flee deeper into the blazing lair. There, she pulls the last resort by transforming into her true apostle form looking like a giant Papilionoidea, and now attacks Guts with high speed, trying to pierce him with her proboscis (I had to look that one up. No idea if it's correct).

(http://img157.imageshack.us/img157/6690/apostleroshinu3yg.jpg)

Realizing that he won't be able to dodge any more attacks at that enormous pace, Guts pulls off a hazardous maneuver:
He uses his arms to form a visor and predict Roshinu's attack with it.

(http://img227.imageshack.us/img227/1632/visor7vi.jpg)

He then voluntarily lets his right arm get skewered and just narrowly avoids his head getting the same treat by deflecting the threat with his iron arm.
As a reaction, Roshinu flies towards the sky, carrying the impaled Guts with her, threatening to kill him and teasing him the whole time. However, she notices too late that Guts' cannon is being aimed at her the whole time and thus she receives a point-blank shot in her stomach, but still manages to survive after falling on the ground.

(http://img160.imageshack.us/img160/4642/falling2wn.jpg)

Having taken serious injuries from the fall, Guts curses himself for having already missed three chances to kill Roshinu.
The battle suddenly ceases with Roshinu trying to rescue Jill who is still trapped in the burning cave. But Guts, totally ignoring the possible danger of killing Jill as well, mercilessly attacks Roshinu from behind and impales her with the dragon slayer.
Frenzied, Roshinu takes flight once more, determined to kill Guts in mid-air to prove that no human could ever hurt an elf.

(http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/7037/80copy5sv.jpg)

She actually manages to score a hit on Guts head and spear it. But just when she is about to cry in triumph, Guts face turns around:

(http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/2365/089copy2xs.jpg)

(http://img83.imageshack.us/img83/1161/09091copy6mk.jpg)

Defeated, Roshinu finally admits to herself that she didn't find any elves at all and finally finds peace in death after saying farewell to Jill.

End of summary

I don't know if going into a huge amount of detail on every fight is such a great idea. Mainly because with the amount of fighting in the series and the amount of people who check out the encyclopedia without having read the later volumes. It would be a big task and might possibly ruin the effect of reading them for the first time for people new to the series. I still think it's a cool idea if you document each fight and when it took place in the series, but leave out the spoilers if possible. That's my opinion whether it matters or not.

Maybe this could be avoided with a big SPOILER warning on the section, that way it will be just up to the user/observer if it is worth seeing it or not (IMO of course).

BTW I also support the Battle Chronicle idea, nice beginning Chung :guts:

I thought the whole purpose of the VS section was to explain every significant fight in great detail.  If people are worried about spoiling the fights by reading the VS section, then this can easily be alleviated, as Yami no Tsubasa said, by putting a spoiler warning on the section.  Personally, I would love it if the fight summaries were as detailed as humanly possible.  The Roshinu fight that Chung wrote up is a good start but it could definitely use some filling in, as CnC explained.

My point exactly. If it offers something extra that you can't get from reading the manga (rather than posting a huge chunk of it.) Then cool...but I think Miura's already explained the fights well enough for my liking.

Yeah well, why list characters? If you read the manga you'll also know who they are.  :puck:
And as Borgoff had mentioned earlier, it might be nice to see the battles' effects on character development and to kill off some noob questions by doing so, if possible.

But then, as you said, the fights are pretty self-explanatory. And I must admit everyone has VERY different opinions on how much detail should be put into such a project .
And the noob questions might actually be part of the whole fun, when taking a look at temijun's thread... so let's just all read the manga and be happy with it, I guess  :miura:.

Those two are hardly comparable.  A list of characters and locations hardly acts a narrative device.
I'm not trying to tell you "you wasted your time" or anything.
And I basically said earlier, there is more going on in these fights.  An expansion or elaboration on the significance of these fights would be a lot more worthy of recording in the encyclopedia than a retelling of what has been illustrated in the manga.

When I said to elaborate on the effects the fights have on the plot (not re-telling the story with pretty words and pictures) That was one of the only purposes I could see in documenting the fights. It might be useful just to post a reference as to which episode each fight takes place for people to use....but I don't know if the amount of work is necessary when Miura has already done it. I just didn't want to shatter your dreams right off the bat. I'll leave that to the mods.  :chomp:

I think that a VS would be significant because 1. For some of use that just want to look and read about the fight right away instead of searching for them in our mangas. Some of us are by our computers more then we are by our book shelves. 2. It just builds up Berserk hype, and shows how awesome and skilled Guts is, and how much he's improved. I can show my friends "Check out this one fight" and they will be drawn into Berserk. Sure it spoiled a fight, but they wouldn't be into Berserk and buying the mangas without showing them how awesome Guts is.

I also think every fight Guts has been in has been extremely significant in the manga, how many of us would be fans if we didn't see these fights. Since these fights are that significant, I just thought that it would be good to have in the encyclopedia since it seems to give information about the most significant facts, events, etc... that had a large impact in Berserk or defines Berserk as Berserk and not just some other crap like pokemon or BS FLCL. (Yes, I think that anime and manga is crap.)
Title: Re: We should have a VS in the encyclopedia.
Post by: Walter on May 06, 2006, 11:07:21 PM
That sounds nice and all IN THEORY, but I still fail to see the point in providing Reader's Digest for Berserk, since everyone who follows the series will already know the fights pretty well.  And like I said in an earlier post, what does the text do that the manga doesn't?  It's really a mess of a project when you consider the scope and detail of the manga. 

Anyway, if you're this excited and confident about the purpose of this project, forge ahead. You could be lapping Chung by now instead of posting about this stuff  :guts:

Not sure how we got on this subject but... the strength of SKnet has always been discussions and interaction with other Berserk fans.  Purely static websites   are boring endeavours, in general.  The Encyclopedia started as, and still is to a large extent, an accurate reference for the Berserk universe to support discussions, not to be an entity on its own.  Honestly, over the now-nearly 3 years since its creation, I'd hoped for a little more user input to correct and add to it but... I understand not everyone has as much free time as me, Aaz and Griff XD

I take your reponse (or lack of) to mean you aren't up to the challenge of writing the VS entries yourself.

I would like to with the help of others. This is a project that a full time college student and worker can't handle alone.

Like I said, you could have been writing entries on it instead of your last three posts in this thread.  Time management, my friend  :badbone:  I only just graduated this past December. Until then I was a full-time college student myself, working part time.  Skully, the old admin on BSOM, was a college professor and still found time to run a website, until he died.

::::SPOILER::::



In Volume 43 an epic battle takes place...
As the dust clowds pass in front of the two warriors someone cries out: "GUTS NOOO!"

It's the battle of...
 :puck: VS  :guts:

guts dies
lol

I'd kill Miura for that :miura:

Seriously now..  I think this VS thing is pretty cool but only the BIG battles should be included.. Tree of sacrifice doesnt qualify i think.. Neither the pirates thing  :isidro:
I'll try to do something but dont expect much as my english sux  :carcus:

Yeah if you guys want to do fights, I suggest you simply start writing them. If SkullKnight.net isn't going to publish them, you can always put a page up on geocities.

You guys should have an easier time compared to me and the boxing matches I have to do blow by blow commentaries for.

I basically did these for quick reference and for those who don't want to read all of the manga to catch up with.

Also the anime viewers can see the fights they may have missed in the manga.

So it serves several purposes.

Actually, even if it's not integrated to the Encyclopedia it'll always be in the forum, which is the primary source of information anyway.

I would add Serpico, Schierke and possibly Isidro to the Vs. Daiba, Serpico did save Guts, and actually kill the snake Kundalini. Definitely a team battle against him.
