I respect the effort but I don't think there's intrinsically much value in creating this sort of projected schedule.
At the end of the day, the takeaway is that it'll take many years until Berserk ends, which is well known. How long it will take exactly is subject to unknown parameters: not just how many episodes are released each year (which is unlikely to go above 9 on average IMHO), but also how many more are planned until the end.

I also want to reiterate that I find the focus on Miura's age to be distasteful.

Well damn, that's pretty neat.

I'm reviving this thread because it just dawned on me that the final segment of Schierke and Farnese's journey into Casca's mind was inspired by the tale of Sleeping Beauty. Think about it: a 'princess' asleep because of a curse, lying in the midst of a forest of brambles, guarded over by a black dragon. It's only superficial obviously (and there's no prince or magic kiss or anything), but I feel like it's too on point to just be a coincidence, especially since Miura does like to work folklore into the story. To be honest I can't believe I didn't think of it earlier.

What got me thinking was coming across this awesome concept art by Eyvind Earle for the 1959 Disney movie.

Well, yeah. That's why I put "break" in quotation marks.

Quotation marks don't matter, what you said just doesn't make any sense in that context. You said Miura threw us a bone (Gigantomakhia) during that break while the creation of Gigantomakhia is precisely why Berserk was on hiatus.

Good find, they have an interesting art style.

And Miura still threw us a bone in the form of Gigantomakhia during that one lengthy year-long "break," so it's not like he left us starving during the worst periods.

Well uh, if he's releasing a series, it's not really a break now is it.

I think they'll find a way to separate Femto from the body. After that, the Vortex seems appropriate to me.

This is what will happen.

Prince of Darkness should obviously be on the list.

I have a mostly free weekend for the first time in a while, so I picked up something on the recommendation of a friend: CrossCode. It's an action-RPG in the vein of Secret of Mana, but with a huge MMO-like world. It's pretty solid so far (2h in). It definitely hits the right notes for the genre. Even things like the ground tilesets and layers of the textures are very SNES. I haven't played a game that feels as much like Seiken Densetsu 3 (sequel to SoM), probably ever? Anyway, check out the trailer:

Wow, obviously strongly inspired by Secret of Mana. Nice! I might get it when it comes to Switch, depending on your final review of the game.

Actually saw the movie yesterday and it wasn't as bad as I'd feared. Might be because I really didn't care.

Is there any chance a petition or a collective letter or something of the sort, asking for at least a few of these crucial changes to be made would manage to persuade them? I know, pretty naive and wishful question, but since they're showing such lack of professionalism, might as well consider the possibility.

No idea, but it probably wouldn't hurt to try. Public pressure from customers is typically an effective way to get US businesses to do what one wants them to.
What's sure if that if we don't complain loudly enough, they'll never bother with it.

Thanks! I flipped through the preview and noticed a confirmation of our name spelling for Danan.  :ubik:

Nice! Another victory! Not gonna lie: I enjoy being right. :badbone:

Hahaha wow, Jesus Christ, this is really bad. So much it's almost comical. Hakusensha really needs to cool it with these dumb projects.

Nope, not buying it at all. Don't want any more trash like this to be made (better yet, I want it definitively stricken from the canon), and the best way to ensure that is to not support it. Whatever money spent on it would be better spent just buying additional copies of the manga. Same reason I didn't buy the DVDs for the most recent anime (hell, I didn't even watch the second cour).

This.

Because it's a PV, maybe that's all it amounts to -- a live action commercial promoting the vol 40 release.

Given the little money they've spent on the anime, I don't think they'd be insane enough to attempt a low budget live action adaptation.

And while yes, most of the content in this dumb book isn't of much use to fans, let's not all shit our pants. Don't forget that it has a sizable (16 pg), recent interview with Miura

You know where that interview could have been? At the end of a new artbook. :casca:

Those "parameters" are more indicative of a medical exam or something to me. Just picture Guts getting his parameters checked and in order.

I fail to understand how can DH be so shallow and out of touch with the community and the essence of Berserk after so many years of publishing it.

To be fair that's from Hakusensha, Dark Horse is just translating it. These things are popular in Japan, but more appropriate for shounen series than for a manga like Berserk.

It's unbelievable. Why sociability?

They needed to come up with some characteristics for this little graphic, which they needed in turn to fill the pages of that book. Without all that made-up bullshit they would have nothing to sell.

Good God, Dr. Dre is one thing, but M. Night Shyamalan, Jennifer Aniston, and Steven Spielberg are too risque for Apple TV? So, Apple's basically going to charge $10 a month for Disney Channel lite (why not just watch Qubo for free)? It'll probably make billions anyway as were all forced to submit to inoffensive blandness as actually good, "It just works!" :judo:

Wow, this is insane.

I think I still like Metroid Fusion better because it has a little story tension going on and more lore to explore

Hahahaahahhahaha this will give Walter a stroke. :ubik: :ganishka:

maybe now I'll check out some of the remakes I haven't tried like Zero Mission and Samus Returns. I have some fond and not so fond memories of Metroid II on my GameBoy, which was one of the first two, and only for the longest time, games I had for it (though I could still play the original; my GB still works and I spliced together a couple of AC adapter wires to make a custom plug block for it =).

Zero Mission is great. Very well polished, although also quite short. Samus Returns... I played 20 minutes of it and haven't gone back. I should probably push myself, but I haven't felt compelled. :sad:
