Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: Berserk: The Flame Dragon Knight novel

Well, that's awesome! This site is even better than I had hoped. I'm too used to younger anime forums, where everyone's like "go to this manga site!" Glad to see there's one where people actually promote official releases--especially for Berserk.

Oh, and don't get me wrong, I expect the Grunbeld novel to be average at best, but I'm annoyingly a completionist xD I played through Sword of the Berserk to get the full story.

We actually buy the issues of Young Animal in which Berserk's episodes are prepublished. We have a step by step guide on how to do it, too. What's not funny though is some random dude coming over and asking us to translate a book for him, and then getting pissy when we don't.

I apologize if I seemed pissy--I legitimately thought it was an odd thing to hear on the internet. I was unaware that Young Animal did English publications since it looks like it's a local thing. Now that I know, I'd be interested in investing because, like all of you, I love Berserk and want to support the release. If we never get an English release of this book, I imagine I'll invest in the Japanese release, but it would be nice to actual know the story.

A fan translation of the novel would be pirating the novel. You're just going to have to wait for an official release, or satisfy yourself with the summaries.

That's fair--though a funny thing to hear from someone on a site where people discuss the latest chapters--whereas official release-wise, we're just now getting Volume 38.
Regardless, what do you folks think the odds are of us getting an official release in the US? Light novels seem kind of uncommon here. I don't think Dark Horse has ever done one. Then again, Berserk is apparently their top-seller, so I could see it going either way.

Out of curiosity, has anyone found a fan translation online? I'd love to actually read the story--i've only seen 11 out of the 167 pages

Berserk Anime / Berserk 2016 English dub Petition
« on: March 25, 2017, 05:11:47 AM »
While Berserk 2016 has by and large been panned by long-time fans and newcomers alike, the final nail in its coffin is the English dubbing Crunchyroll chose. Rather than bringing back what, for many, is the iconic cast for the characters, they instead enlisted what can only be the lowest-cost studio.
This is not only insulting to fans of the original series and movies, but a professional discourtesy to the talented actors who brought the characters to life for over a decade.
I understand that online petitions rarely accomplish anything, but I would urge everyone who feels the same as I do, or anyone who can sympathize with the situation, to please sign and let Crunchyroll know that we as customers are unhappy with their product.

And be sure to Tweet to them and get the word out, we want Crunchyroll to #RedubBerserk
