Manga Mausoleum / Has there ever been a time for you when Berserk forced it?

I mean it's Berserk and all but that huge spread near the end of the Conviction Arc of the kids being disembowelled by their possessed parents, Jesus Christ.

Manga Mausoleum / Did humanity inadvertently create Beherits?

I believe, essentially, Berserk is a story about the strength to overcome suffering and despair. I remember a line somewhere about Apostles being humans who couldn't face up to their weakness, perpetually running away from themselves, and eventually succumbed.

I wonder if the case is then that humans, suffering at the hands of the weak, insane, and impotent, desperately craved some higher purpose to their suffering, and that the more mundane explanation of human folly was just not "exciting" or "satisfying" enough. Not to mention the fact that most people don't want to own up to their issues. And this is what created the Idea of Evil and, by extension, Beherits, as a kind of metaphysical get out of jail free card from their self-imposed despair.

So I think the IoE's causality has become a self-perpetuating system that answers earthly despair with "divine" grace. I think Guts is outside the current precisely because he's got the balls and willpower to face darkness, both within and without.

I think the thematic end of the series will be humanity finding an inner strength that is greater than the pain and horror that compels someone to trade the life of a loved one for a demonic pseudo-life.
