Movies, TV, Books & Music / What other anime/manga do you enjoy/watch?
« on: December 10, 2012, 07:07:21 PM »
Didn't see another thread specifically for this and was a bit surprised considering Berserks medium, but maybe it's just so leaps and bounds ahead of everything else noones needs any other shows or comics.  :guts:

Just curious what other anime people here are a fan of besides Berserk and what people are currently watching (if anything). I've enjoyed Gunbuster, the new Hellsing movies, Gurren Lagann, Bebop and Baccano! just to name a few.

 I honestly roll my eyes whenever I see the new seasons anime but I'm currently watching Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, it's pretty fun. Though I haven't been able to find much to watch in recent seasons, Fate/Zero was pretty cool along with Madoka. I'm a big Evangelion fan and anxiously waiting to see the new 3.0 movie. Besides Berserk for manga I also read Dorohedoro, Vagabond and sometimes Gantz (though it has gotten even more ridiculous as of late).


So it looks like Studio 4C has a collaboration with Capcom and that many of the producers of the game are big fans of the Berserk Manga.

This also boads well for the game since it may have some heavy Berserk influence being an Epic Medieval Fantasy from a Japanese developer.

Dunno if anyone on this board watches the show (its drastically different from being Berserk and thats an understatement) but i usually try to find at least an interesting show or two a season and it parodies otaku culture pretty well. Anyways point being there was a Berserk reference in the first half of the episode!  The context was completely random, just that they were goign to be ordering exotic fruits or something......

Berserk Miscellaneous / Initiating other people to the series

OK well not really upset...but still!

I recently started university and am in first year after taking a victory lap and moved into a double room in residence. I brought all my volumes of Berserk to try and convert people into reading it and have something to talk about and thankfully my roommate was easy to convince (he has had brush ins with anime and had seen movies like Akira and what not, basically he has an appreciation for it).

 He begins to read Berserk saying how much he loves it but i notice he is finishing the volumes surprisingly fast and i occasionally would watch and be all "slow down man! your missing stuff/ check out the art a little more!". He would respond with "nah man I'm just a fast reader its all good" and the like. We being talking about it when hes a little further in, clearly showing how much hes missed and key concepts he didn't really grasp, only really talking about the action and little things he thought were "deeep" but really weren't that important to the story.

Most notable and recent occurrence was when he was finishing 34 and got the the merging of the two worlds, HE LITERALY FLIPPED THROUGH THE PAGES AND SPENT NO MORE THAN TWO SECONDS ON EACH ONE! He stopped on the page with Ubiks material form and just said a "wtf" I turned and was like "show me" like i occasionally do to see what part hes on and said "oh yeah Ubiks page. " He responded with a "what"?..."yeah Ubiks there, Conrad and Slan on the pages before?" . "What who ? ", "The Godhand Tim....". He turns back "No they aren't". Look more carefully....." "Oh!"   I'm sure he missed the entire point of Fantasia or what happened anyways so w.e.....

Anybody else have upsetting stories? Whether like my roommate where they were just undeserving or other stories where people didn't get it?

Sorry if my post was headache inducing, I'm really a horrible writer, especially when it came to all the quotes  :sad:

Manga Mausoleum / New episode transitions in volumes
« on: November 26, 2009, 08:45:00 PM »
So I guess it's the buying of my new volume 32 today that got me in such a Berserk mood since this is my second topic made today when I never have before. ><

So I'm reading through it now and at the end of each other episode now instead of having the black page with berserk in the bottom corner it's now an interesting piece of Miura's art with "Berserk" written across the middle.

What are your general impressions on the change and whatnot?

P.S I kinda forgot to check if the change was made in the official Japanese release so if so just disregard the Dark Horse part...

Character Cove / Mozgus, not enough respect?
« on: November 26, 2009, 08:26:17 PM »
Im sorry if this topic seems random but the thought was kicking around in my head on the way to school this morning.

Though Mozgus is indeed a interesting character im not sure if peopel have really commended him on his actually strength. I am of course reffering to him in human form. Since i always assumed there was something ominous and strange about Mozgus like him being an apostle since first meeting him, smashing somones skull in with a bible,Dropping to his knees and smashing his face in the ground countless times each day, but i never actually reflected on how he was human all that time after reading through.

So is it safe to assume he is one of the strongest human characters ever introduced? Not of course in terms of combat skill since we didnt really see any and he doesnt seem like much of a fight, but in terms of brute strength?

Surely Silat, Azan or even Guts could break a skull that way or smash their face like that uninjured like that.  :mozgus:
