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:

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)

I expect the conclusion to the Jötunn battle, with context around the nature of this campaign, perhaps setting the stage for a more substantial conflict with astral creatures.

Yes, this is exactly what I'm excited about. The last episode got me hungry to know a bit more about what the heck is happening on the mainland etc. I would not mind a few episodes from that pov. Such an exciting time to be a fan!

As expected. I'm eager to see where the story will go.

Me too! Can't wait to see where Grif and the gang will go next. (I think it's safe to assume that it'll still be a Griffith pov right?).

Oh I'm getting excited early!

I'm trying to guess what could happen next but nothing comes to mind. I guess I'll be blown away as usual when the episode will out.

I'd prefer consistently sized volumes, personally. The episodic run isn't as important as the lasting experience, in my opinion.

Very true imo. And to be honest, I don't mind the wait anyway. F*** the impatient ones. The results are always awesome too.

It kinda sucks (at some point) that they seem to go in that direction. (I like stability in my bookshelf. Vol 28, or was it 30 I don't remember, always stand out a lot in my shelf with the paper change for one volume. But thats just me being picky I think hah)

Though I wonder if it'll alternate between 7 to 8 ep per volume with that kind of release schedule.

Manga Mausoleum / Re: Volume 40 release

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

Damn, looks like we might get after all the shortest volume in the series so far. You think they're trying to go for a volume a year no matter what like Walter speculated a while ago in this thread?

I'm not sure what I prefer, a stuffier volume but not every year or a volume with whatever amount of épisodes they can get their hands on...

All I can say for sure is that I need my Berserk fix! haha

Thoughts/preferences guys?

Pretty good indeed! Did you do it on computer? I'd like to try it with wooden pencils but I'm not used to work with colors that much. Maybe I'll give it a chance some day. Good work and I hope you do more of these. I always appreciate when members color some of the pages.  :ubik:

Nice! This thread changed direction with nice tid-bit of info. I don't know why Dark Horse decided to do that instead of just leaving an ellipsis. Thank you again for that kind of knowledge. I would never have figured that out by myself.

God I love hanging around here. Always learning new stuff and differences about the japanese version and the english one.  :guts:

oh! I forgot that he says "God" in that part.

He's talking about Femto's incarnation, not about episode 82.

Aaah okay yeah. It must be the scene where Guts is sliding down the tower just before is fight with Mozgus right? (the one that a page was remove).

Thx Aaz for the clarification. I've reread the entire thing not so long ago and was wondering if I missed out on something haha.

Guts feels its prescence during Griffiths rebirth, even calling it by name.

When was that part? I don't recall that moment. I recall griffith saying "God" at the end of the episode though.

I don't wanna seem like that irritating guy who screams "NOT CANON" everywhere, but I'm curious as to why you chose to acknowledge the Idea of Evil as a currently existing element in Berserk, despite Miura putting it aside, possibly not to approach it again.

It's simple, ep82 still exist where we see Griffith meeting the Idea of Evil at the end of said episode. Then you have Flora talking about it indirectly at the mansion of the spirit tree. And then volume 17 contains 3 épisodes titled Shadow of Idea.

Volume can preorder on Amazon

Sweet! Unfortunately for me it'll have to wait a bit. I've got to sterilize my cats and it's gonna cost me a lot.  :judo:

Well well well, might be a good time to get back vol1 and 18 which are horrendously in bad condition for over-abuse! Thx for the tip. (hoping they do have these two in stocks)

I think seeing her as she opens her eyes, lucid at last, would be amazing.

That. I haven't even thought of that scene but oh yes, that'd be very very fine with me.

I think I said so before, but I'd put my money on Dream-Dog-Guts firing the cannon from its mouth. But I'd much prefer something about Casca. Perhaps revisiting Vol 20's cover, like Miura did between Vol 1-27.

True, I think you did mentionned that a while back. It'd be neat but I still wish for a Casca-esque cover or something related to her healing.

Manga Mausoleum / Re: Volume 40 release
« on: July 13, 2018, 05:45:33 PM »
Ok, my turn ! the cover will be on Casca and only her !

I really hope that casca will be on the cover, she deserves it  :slan:

I'd like that too at some point. She deserves it and it's been a while we had her on a cover.

Well I think it's time then to play the guessing game:

Will it be a 6, a 7 or an 8 episode long?

I wish for the latter.

But the real guessing game is this one :

What's the cover gonna be?

Last time I tried it (for volume 38) I miserably failed my prediction.

The cover is gonna be the broken Casca doll. Or maybe an "hommage" to the Eclipse but the dream version (maybe the spiky mountain? Nah)

(I just hope we won't get the classic Guts vs monster or something of the likes)

Six episodes would be really really short. It would only amount to 131 pages of content, versus 172 pages for volume 39 (with 8 episodes). For reference volume 35 had 196 pages of content with 9 episodes, and volume 34 had 216 pages of material with 10 episodes.

I guess seven episodes is doable, but this trend is starting to get annoying. The number of pages can't just keep going down indefinitely. I also don't see why the release date can't just be in November if September is too tight.

I know. 6 episodes would be of course way to short of content I agree. I thought about that because last year they announced volume 39 at the same time as an episode and we wondered at some point if the said episode would be included in the volume and it was not the case.

That's why I was wondering if we would get a 6 or 7 episodes since there would need to have 2 more episodes to make it at least 8.

November would have made more sense in my opinion.

Thank you for the heads up. I do am wondering if we'll get a 6 episodes volume or a 7 episodes.
