Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: Stuff that reminds you of BERSERK

These ones are particularly bad from what I've listened to, so that doesn't make it easier.

Pretty much what I thought when I listened to it.

I'll never understand the appeal behind this kind of "music."

I understand the feeling. There are a lot of style that I don't understand the appeal too. Even though I'm not a big death metal fan, metal is not one of the kinds I don't understand the appeal. To each is own I guess.  :ganishka:

Btw the cover looks mostly looks like one of the Ganishka spawns.

What I didn't include here was a panel where the writer admires Erica's underwear. It's not fit to bear Berserk's name.

Wow?!? Really?? That's sad. It's almost as if to them (editors or whoever is in charge of that book here) there is nothing deep in the story. And to focus on these littles bit of the story and proning how cute their underwear are or how cute they are while being rapped is sending some kind of fucked up weird message. It's very disppointing to see this kind of thing glorified when it's definitely not the point in the story.

Thats pretty much... sketch for the modern standards. Then again, am I surprised? Not really. Bad tastes for these page titles etc etc.  :sad:

Ugh. Fucking gross. What kind of an idiot edited that garbage together, seriously? I get that they were out of ideas for what to fill that book with, but seriously? Who thought this was a good idea? No way Miura greenlit that shit.

Exactly what I was saying to myself. I'm not one to make big scènes with this kinda stuff usually but this is getting ridiculous. A lot.

Might as well add "these chicks liked getting it hard from Wyald, look how they seem happy" Ugh

Yeah Mandy was a fucked up trip for the mind. Saw it a bit before it was officially released.

i also watched Anti-Birth a few days ago and Hold the dark. The latter i did not like that much. it's very well done and directed but the story...

I don't know if I want to touch Memoirs of an Invisible Man

You should! It's one of his best (in the less horror ones he did) in my opinion (and one of my favorite, just behind In the mouth of Madness)

You should also check (if not already) his 2 masters of horror movies. Wich I really liked. Aaaand crap I've double posted.

Ps: thank you whoever has merged my posts! Sorry about that!  :slan:

I voted for the first choice but I'd prefer it in the chest than in his face. Though I do wish they'll find a way to separate the moonlight boy from his body before getting impale by the dragon slayer.

For example, he talks at length about how he doesn't plan very far in advance, creates dialogue for scenes on-the-spot, etc., but then drops the bombshell that he created the idea of the Beast manifesting from the Berserk Armor back in Volume 16 — 10 volumes ahead of its debut. So much for not making explicit plans!

Just for this kind of information it makes me want the guidebook more. I really need to clear up some space on my credit card. (Also have vol 39 to get in english and vol40 in japanese)

Fuck my financial situation of the moment.  :sad:

I buy everything that has Miura's name on it, and the artwork still gives me a small window into his intent with the story. So I appreciate it for that, if nothing else.

Pretty much what Walter has said for me. I'll get it mostly for the illustrations of Miura. I'll still read it though out of curiosity and since it'll be translated.

Manga Mausoleum / Re: Dark Horse Releases "Deluxe" Berserk Edition
« on: September 26, 2018, 12:06:07 PM »
Some new info is available on Dark Horse's site:

But it indicates that it won't have a re-translation, because the translator is listed as Jason DeAngelis, the original translator of Volume 1-3, who they haven't used ever since.

Also, it has a firm date ( :ganishka: ) of Feb 27.

That's dumb. They should have done a clean up at least for these translation and it's not like they don't have the ressources to do it. Bummer.

Sweet we have a Casca poster. And what a poster! I really dig the other one too. Time to clear some space on my credit card and get that volume!

Sick work!  :guts:

He's all benevolent now, but just wait until Episode 358: Get Off My Lawn!

Summary: Griffith expels a group of troublesome children from the Castle Falconia courtyard because their incessant racket won't allow him to concentrate on meeting his literal world shaping deadlines! A political firestorm erupts and loyalties are shaken when the children's bones are later discovered in Zodd's doggy dish.

 :ganishka: Damn what would this board be without you Grif? Hahaha

Thank you as always Aaz (and of course Puella) for the comment!

It's crazy how the world seems even more fantasy like in the series. Miura will never cease to amaze me with his artwork and story telling.

Pretty interesting indeed like Aaz said about the use of stonehedge like structure a some kind of doorway to get to the branch. Neat stuff.

This actually opens up so many possibilities where travel may have been a barrier. The biggest one perhaps being how Griffith and the Falcons could have reached Skellig. Whereas before it may have seemed a bit impractical for them to march and sail all the way to the island in a world that is already overwrought with violent astral creatures, now they could reasonably go there whenever they wanted, without much effort and with minimal travel time.

Of course, that's putting the cart before the horse as we don't really have a clearly defined motivation for such an attack. But it does further open up the possibility.

I think it'll be more likely to be the other way. I'd see Guts and co using that means to get to Griffith or Rickert. Something in the like.

Fast travel unlocked. :griffnotevil:

Well at least it makes sense comparatively to another show...   :slan:

Not back to waiting for the entire episode.

Maybe not in this thread, but I've written quite a bit about the little guy:

Thank Wally! i meant it as a joke but I do am interested in the little creep. I'll read it tomorrow at work(If I've never read that one, I might have. I do spent a lot of time reading old posts when it's slow at work). I'm always down to read these kind of posts.  :guts:

I'm a bit sad nobody mentionned Ubik. Where's the love for the little one. :sad: :ubik:

Actually, on the contrary, I couldn't really care less about the individual God Hand or their backgrounds (and SK and Zodd are already pretty solidly established characters, we already know them well, specifics aside). They're cool and serve an important function in the story, but that's also the extent to which I care about them. If we get extensive, relevant backgrounds on them down the line, great, I'll enjoy that and care more, but I won't be disappointed if we don't and they just are what they are. I understand the curiosity about them, but not that sort of investment at the expense of much richer characters.

I could not have put it in better words. One of the things I like most about them is the mystery that revolves around them. Not knowing all the détails is sometimes (most of the times imo) better than too much info. If we come to get these backstory like I said just above, well fine with me for I am interested in them, but I'll never be disappointed or pissed if we don't.

And here I thought I was gonna read something interesting. As much as I'd like to have their back story I don't understand how one would want these said back story and not care for the rest of the series...

He said back in 2012 that maybe we'd see what they were up to "soon." It was far from definitive though. He was playing along with the interviewer's obviously frothing anticipation.  It certainly made for a memorable moment for us, but that was 6 years ago...

Aah that's it! But I think you know when it comes to these things, 6 years ago is almost like yesterday. haha. Time sure goes fast. Thank you Walter, I knew I've read that somewhere but could not pinpoint when exactly.

For some reason, I just have a gut feeling that a member of the God Hand is going to show up during this switch to Griffith's POV. Miura always has something exciting planned whenever a POV shifts in the series, and I can't wait to see what he has in store for us this time.

I know! And this is kinda driving me nuts trying to guess what is gonna happen. Well of course this is my own problem for being to "impatient". haha

But I do have to agree that seeing a member of the God Hand would be interesting. Now please correct me if I'm wrong, but I have this vague feeling that Miura said in an interview that we might see them soon. (he never explicitely said more about that and like I said I don't remember from where exactly I heard that, so if I'm mistaken I'll just remove that part of my post, I don't want to spread misinformation after all)
