Glad this was only a promotional video, even though it was bad  :troll:

Better than getting a new novel.

Really like the vibe of this Episode. I hope we stick around with Griffith and see this leading up to his coronation+Wedding. The pontiff cant stay alive much longer.

So guys, quick question: how much of the main story and events do you think Miura is leaving to his imagination nowadays compared to, for example, ten years ago? Now that the story is so advanced in time, one would think that he's now at a big pivotal point in which not much is susceptible to change and all must be the way it's intended in his mind, plot-wise. But we're talking about Miura, so every detail could easily have come from inspiration, instead of his own previous planification of the plot throughout the years. How much would you guys say it is?

I think nowadays its much more different compared to back then to the Golden age days. He probably plans certrain big plot points years ahead, while making general stuff up as he goes on, but its all speculation

That sounds like there will only be one more episode in the volume (so... seven episodes total). For reference volume 39 has 196 pages.

Yep, pretty sure it will be only one more episode unfortunately. When i saw 180 pages i thought 2 more episode for a moment, but forgot about all the empty+information pages.

Pure filler, even if pretty.

You need to learn the meaning of filler

I wonder if were going to see any "flow of time" shenanigans. Like is a year going to pass on the island when we switch back to Guts perspective? I feel like thats to be expected, but I hope we switch back at the exact same moment that we left off.

I think thats exactly why the switch makes so much sense. You show what Griffith is up to now, go back on the island and once your back on the mainland Miura can display the consequences of everything that we will see in the upcoming episodes.

 Being honest, i love the timing of the switch for the episode. I had been asking myself anyways when we will be getting a switch to Griffith, due to his soon to be coronation and wedding. This episode is definitely the set up for going towards that direction.

It also makes sense to do that now, rather than spending more time on the island, which would make the timeskip probably too long to have these events in a timeline that make sense. Additionally when we get off the island in the future, we will see the consequences of Griffith having become a king.

At first I thought you were counting 2-page spreads as a single page, but nope. Wow. Shortest ep ever?

Nope, nope. One thing i wonder about is if that announcment for getting episodes more regulary now is actually happening. Guess we will find out in 2 weeks!

The art in this episode is absolutely unreal. It also is a short episode (15 pages), regardless i love this switch being honest

I've been very temped to Get the P1 Black Swordsman statue. The only thing that has held me back is the fact that I wasn't happy with Guts face and whatever the thing with the horns is taking up so much space. I wish they could have used a main Apostle instead of the generic looking monster. Overall, the statue has it all, Puck, the Demon Fetus and the Beast of Darkness. Its hard to beat having so many elements in one statue. I wish I could own all of the P1 statues, but my wife would kill me.  :magni:

It was a wise decision to wait because they are launching a 1/6 action series anyways. First diorama will be the battle from the hill of swords. There is also the fact that Oniri creations are working on the scene from Volume 32 where Guts rides Zodd to beat Ganishka

I still can't get over how genius the use of Guts was in this episode. His portrayal really went beyond my expectations. Not showing his reaction or his emotions as he approaches Casca and focusing on her, while using him as a trigger for her to remember the memories she suppresed was a great move by Miura. I had high expectations for this occasion, but Miura definitely surpassed them.

Im also glad with the route that Miura chose for Casca when it came to her remembering her experiences as Elaine. The way she described her state of mind makes the dream world seem even more special.

No, that message in itself isn't the announcement of a break. For reference, we also had the same announcement at the end of episode 338, 340, 341, 344 and 345 (among others) without a hiatus afterwards. Furthermore, the last three times there was a hiatus (episode 343, 347 and 351), the message shown was different, it just said "[Berserk] to be continued".

Very interesting. Thanks for correcting me.

Not to obsess over the release schedule, but that's interesting  :ganishka: I guess people (myself included) noticed the lack of numbers so assumed the ending was something along the lines of "to be continued this Fall" or something.

But in any case, yes people, live in the moment! We got another episode with artwork and moments that are immediately iconic!

I don't want to be that guy, but it says ''to be continued next time'', which is the announcement of a break. We had the same announcement at the end of episode 337

Fingers crossed that the last page tells the next episode is coming April 27 and not Fall.

Don't want to talk big, but if the series would have gone on hiatus, we would have already seen someone leak it. Happened countless times where people leaked the hiatus announcment instead of panels from the episode itself.

How much of that would you attest to being a style change for the sake of the arc vs him switching over from pen and paper to digital? Thats often the go to explanation I've heard from people as to why Guts and crew are sometimes off model compared to a couple volumes prior but I have no knowledge on the credence of this. It does seem pretty obvious to me that its switched to digital but Im skeptical on that being the main reason why the style has changed, Im guessing you'd agree that the change is voluntary?

I doubt that going digital changed his style completely. Atmosphere and surroundings definitely have an effect, but like i said, the art style has been this way pretty much since Falconia.  The biggest difference that came with going digital is definitely the use of lines. I think the art style is much more of a mood thing. It changes all the time though with Miura, so who knows when we will see a big change again.

Also, I have some thoughts on the art itself:
The Berserk subreddit is full of people complaining about her eyes looking too big. I was honestly taken aback at first too, but upon reflection, it makes perfect sense to have them so large as a way of drawing attention to them. The more angular, almond-like shape the have here (compared to their rounder style from her days as Elaine) serves to demonstrate her lucidity. As westerners, it might look quite exaggerated, but it's totally deliberate. This brings to mind a psychology experiment from 2007 comparing Japanese and American facial expressions. They found that, compared to facial expression in America, facial expressions in Japan rely more on the eyes to convey information and less on the mouth. This might help explain why this stylistic choice is so jarring to some westerners. (NB: I am really not a psychologist.)

It's not that deep. Miura has been using this art style, since pretty much Falconia now. Bigger eyes, smaller nose, wider face. It's much more modern anime-esque, which doesn't surprise me, as todays series that use that style probably have an influence on him. One thing is sure for me though, the general art style looked at it's best late MF arc.

The Statue will be a depiction of legendary double page spread from Volume 32 where Guts rides Zodd.

The statue by F4F is just okay imo. Not a fan of the face.
