What an amazing episode! It feels amazing getting 3 episodes of Berserk in a row like this with no end in sight, it's totally reinvigorated my Berserk hype  :guts:

Rakshas is my favorite Apostle so seeing this much of him lately has definitely made me happy. After getting a platinum trophy in Bloodborne yesterday it's been on my mind and I couldn't help but think Rakshas' apostle form would look right at home as a souls boss  :P.  I know that applies to alot of Berserk characters and the games themselves draw on and reference Berserk often but he especially reminded me of Wet Nurse Mergo (being the last boss I fought for my ending) with maybe a bit of Paarl and Nito mixed in .

Very interested to see how they're going to escape this one. Cannot wait for the new podcast!

Laughed so hard reading the first 3 posts of this thread....almost makes me want to collect the Japanesel release too!

Wow! So modest for such a great cosplay. With you already thinking there is room for improvement, I can't believe what this cosplay might become one day ! Already probably the best overall Guts cosplay I have EVER seen. Congrats man! :guts:

Hope you guys are enjoying the break, can't wait to hear your thoughts on the "final" Gigantomakhia episode. Just realized I was two behind and am just in the middle of listening to 12. Really enjoyed Gigantomakhia and enjoyed the way it ended, so huge in scale. Great how he create that whole world for such a short series.

On the rape discussion, I also thought that brought up an interesting parallel between him and Griffith.

Thanks you so much for the ep and thank you Aaz for the descriptions. Such an awesome episode, wonder how this will all finish?? It's kind of sad seeing how great this is and knowing there is only one episode left :( but at the same time, that brings us ever closer to Berserk!! :guts:

This thread is pretty dumb...why are people splitting so many hairs?! He may have been able to injure or kill a few more than if you didn't have his sword, BUT THAT IS IT! We can't really speculate if the events would would have unfolded that much more differently because they were done that way on purpose. What are people looking for here, he would have killed all of the apostles, save Casca and escape? NO.  Not get knocked off the hand and be killed earlier? Well that would be shitty. Who cares really. This deserved like one response if that....

I mean I appreciate that the OP specified "slightly different", but that's just's so slight it isn't worth this much discussion.

Interesting time for this thread to come back to life! One of my best friends at Uni randomly told me he had started it last week and if he could borrow the hard copies! We had been watching some anime and he said that my figures had actually been what inspired him to start it. He's never read another manga series before and loves it. He is really into medieval/fantasy setting (even delving into DnD) and we talk about it in great detail every time we get together now.

Last night at the on campus bar he came up to me and said "so how about that new chapter??" and I literally wanted to punch him or something haha. Not only for the fact that they are EPISODES (even told him about my long history with saying it wrong and my custom forum shame title) but I had warned him before there are long breaks between releases. Now I had to really drive home the fact it isn't even a laughing matter anymore......He has to never ask if it’s out yet again and I’ll let him know!!! :judo:

I don't know if I should bust out in laughter, or facepalm myself into tears...

That "looking back" Griffith is pretty hilarious....I THINK in a bad way....but depending on how self aware it is it IS a little funny....I honestly don't even know. Very feminine haha.

Another freaking awesome AOW Gantz statue I saw pop up recently. So freaking awesome but so expensive D: .

Definitely happy with what was shown today. Lot of emphasis on the lighting which is interesting. That death montage at the end was really cool.

Just posting a freaking awesome video that was posted today.

I think it is important to note that Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain are still two seperate games that TOGETHER make up MGS:V

At least they are getting a little more creative and quirky at gauging our pockets! Let's just hope I'm not going to have to buy too much DLC or micro-transactions on top of buying both games to "fully enjoy" this new game....

not a bad cover but a bit underwhelming. I agree about the colours. Really like that mouth/teeth in the background, very menacing!

Haha too good Walter, thanks for doing this! Some writer over at Darkhorse is having a lot of fun with these.

True Walter, It was a completely stupid comment. I just thought the emphasis was more on her being a total heartless religious monster and thought I would point out how she was being a hippocrit at the same time...but enough of her!

I should suggest you check out more of his stuff! I've been following him since I was a kid and he's definitely improved over the years. Used to do lots of dubs and "klaymations" but has recently done alot of skits that are quite hilarious in my opinion. He also has a few hilarious friends.

Let's please not argue with YouTube comments... That being said, it makes sense that it would happen in this thread :ganishka:

Sooooooooooooooooooooooo don't acknowledge his post of a youtube comment screenshot, GOTCHA! Lol

I'll actually contribute something now...hope you don't all get too depressed!

That picture from India is pretty cool Walter, thanks for sharing.

"unless it is for health". So being able to now hear has nothing to do with ones health? I would say he had unhealthy ears!

"Judea in particular stands out for having a strong overall arc throughout the entire trilogy."


As in he is pretty much the only Hawk with minimal as it is...

I think I agree with Aaz. They definitely appear to be glowing, most likely the same as the Tree, I imagine a similiar white or light blue/white? I know you generally show a few different colour variations on things, these crystals would be perfect for just that as we really don't know for sure.

Awesome Godzilla btw! I haven't seen anything related to him lately but was obsessed as a kid.

Any new Berserk work lately?? Your talk of kicking things up a notch for your next Berserk project got me really excited!

Been holding off on voicing my disappointed but I guess it's time to cave. I can't believe how terribly aggravating this entire thing has been. Being in my third year of university now I indoctrinated a few close friends into Berserk and was so excited when I first heard about the new movies thinking how great of a time it was, being able to now enjoy and share even more new content with my friends since they just got caught up. I know through nitpicking we knew it was going to be bad from the start but what it has finally turned into is just a complete joke and horribly, horribly aggravating. I never even wanted to share news of the films or watch them with my friends even though this should have been the perfect thing for that.

The thing that makes me the most mad is the fact that we were straight up fucking lied to. This movie series was advertised and constantly fucking feed to us as a TRUE and FAITHFUL adaptation of the series with the obvious comparison being made to the 1997 television series. You can't fucking say things like that and then have a finished product hundreds of times less accurate than television series. In this way I feel any reader of the series is literally being giving the finger with the hypocrisy and farce this entire affair has become but always essential has been.

I'm sorry for all of the swearing in this post but I know that shouldn't be a problem around these parts. On more of a note related to the third movie specifically I'm still very interested/scared/worried about the rape scene. That comment about the music being strange or too much or what have you..... combined with my worries after seeing how the Griffith/Charlotte scene was depicted....I'm just worried that scene alone might be the fuck you cherry on the shit cake. It doesn't help that I really felt the scene was done well in the television series and they will definitely want to be over-the-top by comparison.

Edit: Btw I also agree whole heartedly that The Black Swordsman would have been excellent movie material. I feel they could definitely find a way to fit it into one movie and keep the essence. You would have some familiar with the snake baron parts from the television series but then continue with the Count. It would deliver the perfect vibe of a return to Berserk but with a new twist as well as easily set up a way to then do an OVA series of Golden Age with loyal fans (assuming they didn't fuck up Blackswordsman). Not to hold the Black Swordsman in any lower regard, but I feel as though the Golden Age is what I feel the need more for the small details, that they would then hopefully be able to follow faithfully due to many, many less restrictions on OVA creation and release. They literally run for however many volumes as needed as whatever length from what I've seen. Just imagining this smarter and more effective handling of Berserk makes me depressed.....if only....

Recently picked up Soul Calibur 5 and Anarchy Reigns. Soul Calibur obviously awesome, needed a fighter I could more easily play with my friends since they don't seem to like UMVC 3 much. Anarchy Reigns is also extremely enjoyable. The multiplayer is just so random, the characters, the attacks, changing and attacking environment and effects. To top it all off I simply LOVE the soundtrack, it suits the game perfectly and I downloaded it immediately. The multiplayer can be frustrating at times since when you're losing it REALLY feels like you're losing but the exact same goes for winning. You feel like a complete badass and the kills are extremely gratifying and for 29.99 you really can't go wrong.

Just started, had to go ahead and post since I'm so excited to hear all of your thoughts on the new episode. Excited in the boozing as well as I'm currently fairly deep into a bottle of red wine (Black Cab) :guts:.

a truly supernatural, alien landscape that looks more home to Locus than anything else (besides Griff, of course).

Funny, the first thing I thought of when I saw those crystals was Grunbeld, and it looks like no one has even mentioned him ! Not for any deeper significance or anything, just from a pure aesthetic reason with it being crystal.

Thanks Walter and Aaz for getting up the pics and summaries! A really nice Holiday season treat ! :guts: Can't wait to hear your discussion in the podcast.

I was really surprised when I saw Rickert's expression when showing Raban the Hawks insignia, he does seem quite excited all things considered. With all the crazy things happening though, I guess regular civilians must not be in the greatest state of mind, just trying to comprehend all these changes. Especially Rickert who wasn't a part of the war with apostles and Ganishka to see Griffith take charge and calm the people that way. He is just trying to keep Erica  safe with monsters all over the place, and last time on the Hill of Swords with Zodd and Griffith...his mind must be a mess but he seems to be keeping his cool. I take it any chance to seek some familiarity must seem nice, but he should really heed Guts words about Griffith and be careful.
