Well I think that it's a high possibility that after poor Chicchi dies as a result of curing Guts, he's gonna have to use all his strength and wits to escape, meaning we'll get to see some young Guts action...  :guts:

This ain't April fools day, right?  :isidro:

Definitely unexpected, I''m sooooo curious to see what happened in that period, maybe we'll see Guts getting caught between the Midland - Tudor war, hence he being in shackles?  :???:

Ah, the Alien movies...I have fond memories of them.  :ubik: Especially Aliens, since it was the very first movie i saw in a cinema, when I was in second grade. It left quite the impression on me, I couldn't sleep for weeks  :ganishka:

That goes for me as well.

I also need to catch up on the podcasts. I fell behind on the last three. Wish my commute was longer actually  :guts:

me too... I've only just managed to finish this one, which was great, as usual. Maybe this weekend I'll get up to date. :serpico:

It's an improvement over the first one, the CGI is a little more "refined" I think. Regardless, the battle scenes are sweet.  :guts:

Manga Mausoleum / Re: Griffith's past before the Hawks
« on: February 29, 2012, 03:51:34 PM »
I guess you're right, it wouldn't have been of great relevance to explore in detail Griffith's early life. Of course, there is no comparison between him and Guts, the latter's life and experiences must be seen to be believed   :magni:

Manga Mausoleum / Griffith's past before the Hawks
« on: February 29, 2012, 08:47:26 AM »
I searched the forum a bit and I couldn’t find a topic about this so here it goes...

In the manga, we are shown the past of the main characters and the relations they had with their families and interactions with other characters. For example, we get to learn Guts’ past before joining the Hawks, how his biological mother died while giving birth to him (or before, or after :P), how his adoptive mother died, his struggling relationship with Gambino, the one who taught Guts how to fight, the painful experiences (his rape, killing Gambino, the wolves’ attack, etc.) that shaped him into being the young man he was before he met Griffith, and so on...

Likewise, we get to see Casca’s past, what kind of family she had, the kind of life she was living with her family and the traumatic experience right before she met Griffith.
Also, more recently, we are shown Farnese’s and Serpico’s past, Schierke’s relationship with Flora, etc...
All these insights are very important as they help us understand the nature and treats of these characters, how they interact with each other, how they react to certain experiences, what leads them to make certain decisions, etc.

So lately I’ve been wondering why more of Griffith’s past (before creating the Hawks) isn’t revealed to us. All we see is Griffith’s flashback during the Eclipse. And it's not exactly a revelation of his past, Ubik was just manipulating him.
I know the Idea of Evil told Griffith in Episode 83 that it created the proper lineage and context that would bring forth a man like him. But I can’t help thinking that there has to have been something palpable, material that triggered Griffith’s dreams and ambitions. Sure, maybe some people are born more intelligent, ambitious or whatever than others, but wouldn’t you have liked to see what exactly determined Griffith to walk his path and set such high goals for himself? Maybe an influential parental figure (as is Guts’ case), or the poverty of his family, which made Griffith want to rise from it, an event, or something, I dunno...

Do you guys think that maybe Miura considered that revealing Griffith’s past was unnecessary and/or irrelevant? Or maybe he plans to do it in the future?

I’d like to hear your thoughts on this.

one of my favourites is when griffith tells ganishka: "You can see! Because people who carry the light are inside the deepest of darkness, and in the darkness you can discover the true light"

the whole scene was just... wow  :isidro:

Raises the question of the medium again. Berserk is a popular manga but it's seinen and I'd characterize the fan relationship to it as more intimate. I mean, if it were as big and accessible as those franchises this adaptation happening wouldn't be such a big deal, or so tenuous. So again, perhaps a major theatrical release wasn't in its best interest from a format or business standpoint. How much of a relative success this would be if it were a Blu-Ray release, not only in Japan, but with all of us foreign fans importing it I wonder? How much more could have been dumped into advertising or production without theatrical expenses, etc? On the other hand, maybe that's backwards and the cache of a theater release meant more money was put into than would have ever been for a video release. I can't pretend to understand the Japanese film market, so maybe it's doing okay for what it is, but we'd naturally want to see it on top. We'll get our chance to help the DVD/Blu-Ray market for it soon enough anyway. :guts:
totally agree with you. maybe people (aside from hardcore fans like us :iva:) are not than interested in watching a retelling of the golden age arc in cinemas... perhaps it would have been more successful if it were the black swordsman instead of the golden age?

Wow! Guts is such a badass!  :guts:

And is the Sea God "vomiting" out all everything (ships, etc) it had eaten?  If so, I guess Guts is leaving the Sea God faster than I thought.

It seems so. but i don't think that the sea god is defeated just yet

That's not a bad guess actually... That could be how they defeated it back in the day: lulling it to sleep, then imprisoning it.

only this time, guts will bring his contribution to their song, with a stab in his heart  :beast:

I think he will die, as puella said, as a human being, in order to achieve his ultimate goal - Griffith. Somehow I don't see a happy "Hollywood" ending - guts living with casca together, starting a family, etc   :iva:
