Haha, I'm surprised that not everyone noticed it immediately. I mean, regardless of the spores, she's wearing her robes and all. And if you look at the penultimate page, they're clearly being "called back" to the waking world by Danan.

I've noticed it on the first read but I didn't think it was necessary to mention it since it was (for me at least) pretty clear that it was the spores from the mushrooms. Plus like you said, the robe....

But to come back to Esper's post, i did not feel the last episode to be that rushed. I was very satisfied with the pacing of the events and I would not be surprised if indeed Schierke and Farnèse are in fact somehow affected by that trip Inside Casca's mind. Like it or not, they sure saw some fucked up scenery there and even though they knew they were just in a dream, it can mess you up.

I've never had anything that traumatising in my life and some of my nightmares mess me up so I can't even imagined how this nightmare can affect Schierke and Farnèse at some level.

One thing for sure ; they deserve a well rest! After all, the others are partying while waiting. It's their turn to relax.

March... where are you?!?!?!

Man, what an episode. The best visuals Miura has accomplished in years. Savor this moment, folks.

I'm already at my third time "reading it" (for obviously I can't actually read it but you get what I mean) Incredible beautifull visuals indeed.

These moments make me realize that I'm very very glad to follow this serie and how gratefull I am that it exist!

New York. I used to hit up the local Kinokuniya before but I've been tied up with work and I traveled a bit in the last quarter of 2017 resulting in not being able to order a copy from em. I've been checking YJA to see if I can buy it but it's a bit of a hassle. So I'd rather buy from CDJapan and spend a little more for the convenience.

yeah pretty much what I do here. I don't really have any specialized place where I could order them from. So I got into the cdjapan ship to get my copies now that my budget allows me to buy the single issues. It's Worth my 20$ I'd say.

Thanks for the link, Sareth.

It's pretty weird I didn't get the issue carrying episode 352 yet but I received the one with 353.

HUmm weird indeed. But they do warn us (well at least in my e-mail) that it can take up from 2 to 6 weeks to get here and in extreme cases up to 3 months. I received ep352 a week or so after pre-ordering ep353. (I hope for you that it did not get lost in the mail. I know I would be pissed about that, and tbh I was starting to be a bit scared when it got to 6 weeks of waiting.)

Where do you live?

Just got my issue today, man it's glorious. It'll take a while to fully appreciate it, now onto listening to the pod on it ^_~

Thanks for the summary puella and Aaz!

Still haven't mine. I received 352 like two weeks ago or something. So I don't expect too soon. I'll probably have time to pre-order 354 before 353 gets in!

Never understood some people's attachment to these terrible performances.

It must be nostalgia.  :serpico:

Wow! That... was.. mindblowing. Amazing episode.

Miura never cease to amaze me. I'm probably mistaken but one of the monsters in the beginning of the episode made me think of Wyald.

I just hope my package won't get lost in the mail because wow I really want these pages in big format! (And i also don't want to lose 20$ hehe)

I know! It's driving me nuts! And I still haven't received the last issue containing ep352 in it. I was joking with a friend that I would probably pre-order ep353 before I get my hands on 352.

Anyways, Can't wait to get this one.

I noticed this morning that Japanese readers were enthused about an alleged increase in releases, so this is what they meant. But ya know... I feel like we've been through this before. I'll be all for it if true, but it's hard not to be skeptical after more than 10 years of sporadic releases.

Well, the way I see it, we seem to be getting a 4-5 episodes in a row then a break then a 4-5 episodes... But they seem to keep announcing it as becoming a rela regular monthly series.

Now I don't mind that formula since it's pretty much what seems to be working for the moment. I'm just glad we can have a few episode in a row.

Though I'm wondering if since the anime is done if it will have some kind of impact on the production as in maybe getting more episode then 4-5 consecutives ones?

« on: December 22, 2017, 09:21:57 PM » has an article about the latest issue of Young Animal that contains a pretty interesting tidbit: 今後は隔号で連載されていく。

What this translates to is that "from now on, Berserk will be published serially in every other issue [of Young Animal]." Obviously I think we need to be very cautious until we get direct confirmation from YA, but what this implies is a return to a regular publication for the series.

Well that could be a mind blowing news! We'll have to wait and see as you said but I think this would make more then a few happy!  :serpico:

Thx Aaz.

This actually happens all the time (and across the world) with Griff's "20 years later" joke image.  :ganishka:

Darn! I near;y forgot about that one! I got fooled too when it came out.  :ganishka:

And in the end, Griffith always show up to illuminate the day. Thank you for that beautifull ending. If only...  :slan:

Joke aside, I do agree with you Grif. I don't care how it's play out towards the end, as long as it's well done and so far I can't really find a part in the story where Miura never delivered. That says a lot on how I/we trust him with his story because obviously, he seems to know where he wants to bring his story.

I don't think I'll ever be scared of how it's gonna end.

Well these two passages from the manga might help out a bit.

Volume 14 Skullknight to Guts :"If you mean to pursue the inhumans, follow the guidance of that brand." Episode Demon child or infant from dark horse.

And volume 22 Guts to himself :"It was an aimless journey relying just on strange rumors and the subtle sensations of the brand..." Episode The rent world

Now that does kind of say that the brand can be use as some kind of radar. The way I see it, it just doesn't work perfectly like a real radar with a bip and a ping, but an unnatural feeling that serve as a radar once you know how it works/feels. As in, I don't think Guts can sense where all the apostles are because he has the brand. The closer you get from one or something evil, the greater the feeling/reaction.

I'm pretty sure after a couple of nights fighter the specters got him to be able to differentiate the apostles from lesser creature and if he started to feel something a bit I'm sure he'd go that way to find out.

In my opinion.

resurrected Griffith

Though the Griffith we have now in the story is not a resurrected Griffith, it's Femto (a spiritual body) incarnated in a body of flesh. Which makes him still evil as fuck as when he did not have a physical body. Nothing changed about that. He's just playing a nice role of "I'm being nice event though I've anticipated/pre-planned it all and nobody knows..."

Hmm I'd say rushing head on, shirtless and wounded, in a bunch of apostles right after fighting Slan (and getting some serious wound from that fight too) was not his best idea ever if we want to go into that territory.  :guts:

I don't know what's worse for the wait ; knowing when it's coming or not knowing and have it as a surprise?!  :serpico:

Either way, this one is gonna be a mind blaster I'm sure.

Thx for the heads up Walter.

Soon the time for discussions will resume.  :guts:

« on: November 18, 2017, 03:42:24 PM »
Yeah, volume 17 is also one of my favorite if not my ultimate favorite so far. Oh well... I'm glad to see my second best. The top 5 though which is vol 34.

Did we ever do a survey like that in skullknight?

Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: Hardcover editions of Berserk?
« on: November 01, 2017, 04:47:22 PM »
Here in Brazil, Panini has been releasing a "deluxe" edition, with better ink and paper than any other version in the market here.

The drawings are very clear :ubik: and the cover is "hardish", not truly hard, but not too soft either. I've been collecting my deluxe volumes from them. I don't know how it compares to US/EU/Jap prints, but it's pretty good arround here (also, price is comparatively lower!).

(not my pic)

Nice. Is the size a little bit bigger then a manga though or is it about the same size?

As others mentionned, I would love it so much to have oversized volumes...

Makoto Fukami's writing and Dark Horse's translating, what's not to love.

Just wait for the back cover synopsis!  :ganishka:
