Shootin' the Breeze / Re: Tsunami in SW Asia
« on: December 30, 2004, 09:49:26 PM »
Yeah, well, here in sweden they're going to have a fundraiser show on saturday. It's being sent in all swedish radio and tv channels, even the private and competing ones.

First time that has ever happened.

Also, new years day is the national sorrow day, and all the new years even fireworks have been cancelled and the money will be used for disaster relief instead.

We might be looking at 4000 dead here... it's only a fraction, but it's pretty much for a country of 9 million people who's not affected directly.

As comparing it to 9/11... how is that even possible? Except in regards to national trauma.

Funny thing, our own goverment were more shocked and outspoken over that event than they are over this one. 'we are all americans today' they said...

...

And... no way in hell that Burma only has 90 dead. Just look on the maps. The military dictatorship just refuses to admit it...

I have no clue about the numbers.

But I imagine that the gist of the argument is what Griffith said:

A guy who makes a million a year gives 100 bucks to charity.

A guy who makes 10 000 a year gives 50 bucks to charity.

The rich guy gives more, but will still be critized for not giving enough.

But I guess no amount of money will be enough here.

People here in sweden is still kind of a shock. We was hit hardest by the tourist nations, there might be as many as 4000 fatalities if the worst scenarios come true. Khao Lac, Phi Phi islands and Phuket in Tailand is huge swedish resorts, especially at christmas. We had something like 20 - 30 000 tourists down in Thailand.

I'm just lucky my parents weren't there. They are planning to go to Borneo this year isntead...

Well, I've heard rumours that his identity was revealed at last but haven'tbeen able to find the thread...

Was it Griff like we thought at the time?

*grins* Aaah the memories... and I never got around to that naked jello wrestling either...

Character Cove / Götz of the iron hand
« on: December 28, 2004, 05:59:24 AM »
EDIT: Damn, this should perhaps have been in speculation nation! If a mod passes by, please move it.


Well, I'm not sure whether this have been covered before, but I read a science magazine on the train home for christmas, and came across a picture of a man named. Götz von Berlichingen. Appearantly in AD 1509 he was a german knight who lost his hand, and had it replaced with an artificial hand with moving fingers, which allowed him to hold a sword and continue to fight. I think he lived to be eighty or something, quite famous for his time.

Goethe even has written a famour play about him.

He was called Götz of the Iron Hand.

Now I know that Miura has done a lot of reading about medieval europe... does anyone but me think that Miura might have found some inspiration there?

Götz/Guts?

And if anyone knows both german and japanese, how would the name Götz be rendered in katakana? I'm not sure how the german Ö is pronounced compared to the swedish Ö. It feels like Guts might be a reasonable rendition... it's pronounced more similar to A than to O.

Just a thought...

Agh! I can't believe I forgot about teh SkuLL LoRD!!!!

*has brief fit of alternating panic/hilarity*

He's... *carefully looks around* ... not around any more, is he? *grins*

And yeah, I'll try to stick around about more this time. Being running an online campaign and being a mod on another site, so I've been busy pursuing other interests (ratties!)

And yeah, it is indeed my second return to this site....

As for hypocrisy (what a great band)...

I didn't take it to be aimed at me.

But really... I don't see it as the least bit strange to do a thing (like provide raws) for a person I know, that I wouldn't do for someone I just met and that had appeared on the site (and hadn't even bothered to register). 

Or perhaps that's just me *smiles*

I have a lot of 'double standards' like that.

When have I ever been known for being a troll? I'm just bring up the fact all the trolls start their holy crusade of flaming once someone asks for scans. It's a double standard when everyone is all nice and happy to help you out but when someone else asks they are flamed to hell and back.

Sorry, didn't mean you personally. I just meant that I thought I might end up getting flamed if I asked about this in a topic. As for other people having a double standard, that's really not something I can answer.

Quote
You have friends here that would have been more then happy to send you the raws, you don't need to just start a topic thinking no one is going to remember you from a couple months back. Bah Griffith, random person, and I would have been more then happy to send you them if you were to pm one of us.

Well, I'm glad that is the case. But to be honest I thought this felt like a less 'offensive' way of doing it. To send off several PM's asking for it felt... I dunno... a lot more like I was expecting people to give it to me. I'd rather risk the flaming. Besides, I did not know who still had the raws on their PC, or who had the time or the will to send it off. Sorry if I stepped on people's toes here...

Quote
You sound a lot alike some random person’s parent talking about how good everything was "back then" specially back then was never very polite in the first place.

*laughs* Well, I tend to remember the good parts more than the bad parts, so maybe I remember wrong. Then again I sigh wistfully for the good old days of DOS so maybe you have a point there *grins*

Well, first of all, thanks a lot everyone!

The issues have been taken care of, thanks for all the kind offers and the welcome backs *grins*

And hey, Vampire Hunter Bob, feel free to flame me all you like, wouldn't expect anything else.

Just to make matters clear, I did not assume that I had the right to anything, and I'm sorry if I came across as demanding stuff. I just wondered if someone felt like sharing, isn't this what we do on the net? Share stuff with each other? I've done the same for people back when I was more on top of things.

Perhaps it's just me spending too much time elsewhere, but I remember a time when people here actually were polite even to the new people (I detest 'elite' speech) who asked stupid questions, discussed things that had been talked about before, and dared to ask for the *gasp/shock/horror* scanlations.

I mean, saying no is one thing, but it doesn't cost a thing to be polite about it. All that being rude does is make people go away and never be seen again, giving this site a reputation that it really doesn't deserve, because there's a lot of great people here.

Well, I've been away for a looong time, probably so long that most of you people doesn't even remember who I am anymore. *grins*

Mostly I've been busying myself with the Skaven site I'm moderating, but recently I've had this urge to get back into berserk. Okay, to be honest a friend of mine recently fell in love with the manga and got me back to the recent issues online.

Now seeing as how I've missed quite a few of the raws, I've been up and down the bloody net trying to track them down. IRC failed me, and I'm not touching Bit torrent and the like with a ten foot pole (talk about unsafe!), so I was wondering whether anyone knew of another place to get the following raws?

239, 244, 245, 246, 247, 248

I'm just wondering... and yes, I checked the current issues section of course, that's where I usually get all the stuff. BUT, seeing as how the raws get pulled after a short time, I haven't managed to find them all.

So if anyone could help me, I would be more than grateful, if not I'll just have to curse and wait for vol 28 at the end of february I guess... And vol 29 after that... agh! Too slow!

Have fun out there everyone!

And it's great to be back.

P.S. Kidding. ;D

I'll put that in the first post as Saiya's rules (if it hasn't been done already).


*grins* yeah. I'm blind *smiles* Sorry 'bout that.

I just assumed that since it wasn't in the first post, nobody had put it on anything but torrent yet.

I just didn't read every post since most the pages seemed to be of guys arguing with each other.

And I was late for watching Sweden/Japan in the hockey world championship...

*grins* weird things I tell you....

Got to love torrent... *shakes head*

3 hours and 46 minutes to download a chapter.

And that is unless it bugs before then.

Could anyone please be so kind as to host it on a normal site or anything? Like I have said before. torrent seem to be loved by many, but over here in sweden it just doesn't work. At all.

Thanks a lot in advance *smiles*

Can somebody please host it normally?

here in sweden I get 1-5kb/s in download speed on torrent... it's basically a worthless download system for me *smiles*

would apprechiate a normal hosting from someone, I'm dead curious!

Here here. The beast swimming up his back like a shark is one hell of a cool trick, totally unexpected and awesome. Frankly, I can't wait for it to take control of him again. Also, Flora fondly staring at Skully's armor is precious, awwwww. =)

-Griffith

P.S. Fish, censored words have been lifted, you can refer to Guts however you like, call of your punctuation of war. Damn radicals, you've won this round! ;)

*smiles* yeah, I never ever would have expected that. I reread the whole series last week, and to compare how puny the beast is when it first arrives to this monster it has become now is rather interesting.

I just hopes that Guts eventually realises that perhaps people can do some things they regret under the influence of their darker selves.

Of course that would depend on Griffith showing even a smidgeon of regret... if he did I think Guts would crumble. But I very much doubt that he would, he's a stubborn bastard.

I have to admit that Flora and Skullknight being such friends is really something I didn't expect. How old was she anyway?

Do people still think Skullknight is Gasaerik after the recent revelations? Just wondering...

And finally... *grins* Thanks! Thanks a lot for the lifting of the ban! Makes life just a little bit easier.

Thanks a lot Bakou! And Griffith since Bittorrent never seems to work properly for me in sweden. Just faaaaaar too slow.

This chapter has to have one of the more creepy images in quite some time. I love p18-19, the way the beast just slowly crept into the armour was just bloody awesome.

It is indeed time for Gat.tsu to continue his slow descent into the darkness from the look of things. I think that a revitalized Caske will be need soon, if nothing else because I doubt that there is anyone else that will be able to deal with Gat.tsu when he starts to slip.

And I just can't get rid of the gruesome picture of Skullknight in the berserk armour, dead and rotting, impaled upon all those spikes until only the skeleton is left. After all, if the spirit isn't willing to depart, the armour seems to be able to sustain the body indefinetly. And we already have learned that the armour stregthens the bone and doesn't allow it to break...

I just can't wait to see what happens next. Griffith. Gat.tsu. Casca. They all seem to be starting to come into the true focus of the story again.

Which is fine because that triangle of love/hate/friendship/loyalty was the thing that got me hooked on Berserk from the start.

I believe it's stated somewhere that someone who is already marked as a sacrifice can not be sacrificed a second time.  So I don't think Guts will be sacrificing Casca.  I heard that some where, but I'm not sure if it's a fact.

If you're thinking of the first three volumes, I believe that is is stated that one who is branded can not be a sacrifice for anyone else...

as far as I know there is no place where they actually say that a branded one can not use the Beherit.

I for one wonder if they will even get off the shore, remember the warnings they got about the port a while back. Just finding a ship will be hard enough I think...

but i can't wait to read this conversation...

Well... I for one can't help but wait in anticipation of the adventure of the slightly black swordsman...

But seriously. Does anyone but me wonder what Skullknight will have to say about ~Guts~ new armour? After all it have had a huge impact on him already, and I can't help but wonder if Skullknight's appearance is due to that.

Wow!

Honestly I thought that Miura had almost forgotten about the ocean by now. Does this mean that we actually will get to see Pakku's home?

Now that is something I look forward to...

And I sure as hell hope that Berserk is not ending any time soon, he has far too many years of stories to tell.

Well, I for one can't wait to see Griffith actually starting to intereact with more people.

I am curious whether he's still cold Femto inside or whether he's rediscovering human emotion along with his new human flesh...

and thanks for the scans once again SaiyajinNoOuji!!!

Easy answer to that: Don't look. The world won't end, life won't end and you might even feel better.

Just ignore it, it relies on our power to stay there. If we just won't care, it looses its power.

Well... I am against banning of course...

I am off the opinion that if people answer stupid posts, they are just as stupid themselves... *grins*

Hell know I've done it enough times.

It's just like any other thing, start banning the ones everyone agrees on who ruins the board, then start banning the ones that are annoying, and then eventually start banning anyon who has an opinion people don't agree with... just where is the line drawn?

*grins*

For me, ban the people who hack, spam and otherwise physically ruins shit.

Exessive posting? Hell, nobody's forcing you to reply and read it.

I always found that the strangest thing about american culture...

Here is sweden nudity is no big deal at all, most kids have seen plenty of naked people I think. I mean, you see them all in real life, going swimming, sporting, gym class whatever... so why should they be weird on the screen?

Violence on the other hand... oooh dear, it has become better now, but we used to be infamous for cutting everything violent away from our movies... even those meant for adults!
