Anime Asylum / Flaws in the 1997 Anime
« on: February 07, 2016, 05:06:51 PM »
So the new trilogy wasn't the best. It was choppy, full of bad CGI, and the only real reason I personally enjoyed it was that it had the name 'Berserk' on it. Everybody tends to, justifiably, shit on the new trilogy while holding the 97 adaptation to a high esteem.

However, with the new project coming out in July (please, God, don't let them fuck it up) I think we should also address the issues the old anime had.

The flaws I had the most beef against was the lack of Puck and the Skull Knight. I get that they didn't want to introduce Puck that early for a series that was probably, and in fact didn't, continue after the Eclipse,  but the Skull Knight was pretty damn important. Without him, the entire ending to the series feels very abrupt. They could have at least had him show up to save Guts and Casca after the rape scene.

Also, without Puck, the entire Black Swordsman episode feels clunky and half developed. It jumps from one point to the next, trying to compensate for the entire plot shift it had to take.

These are just personal gripes of mine. Anyone else have any grievances against the original anime?

Speculation Nation / Is the Beast of Darkness actually "real"?
« on: September 23, 2015, 01:04:42 AM »
This has always been an interesting subject to me in regards to theories about Berserk. Personally, I really like the subplot about the Beast of Darkness getting into Guts' head and basically telling him to MURDER EVERYTHING. But a thought always crossed my mind.

Is the Beast of Darkness actually there? From what I've seen,  only Guts is the one that notices it. His Brand, assuming I am not forgetting a part, never activates when the Beast of Darkness is talking to him. The only solid evidence I've seen where the Beast of Darkness might be an actual demon is when the Berserker Armor changes when he goes nuts. Even then, they already established that the armor was cursed beforehand, maybe even possessed.

So was the thing in the armor taking the form of the Beast of Darkness to mock Guts, or was it the other way around, and that the thing used the armor to manifest?

Basically,  did Guts go crazy and imagined it? Or was it a literal demon following him around, like the others?

Berserk Miscellaneous / How should they do a Berserk game?

We all know how the director from Metal Gear Rising said that he wanted to make a Kill La Kill or Berserk game. Praying to God for the latter got me thinking.

How should they do a game, if it ever happens? Should they just adapt the manga,  or add a side story? Gameplay?

Personally, as long as the gameplay is slow and brutal,  and full of the red stuff, I'd be satisfied.
