Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: Dark Horse releasing guidebook March 14, 2018

Indeed, I have been wondering why they never bothered to make an English version of the artbook(s) (can't renenber if their is more then one for I have only one in french). Maybe they don't have the rights to make them?

It's probably not a rights issue, it's expensive to produce and they probably didn't think there was enough demand. DH won't take risks like that, the french manga market seems much larger than the north american market in general, they have a lot more series localized than we do here.

Purchased it this morning, gonna play it in the next few days. I'm sure that the Hirasawa track is great but I'm hearing that the entire soundtrack is great as well.

Berserk Anime / Re: 2017 Berserk TV Series (Season 2)

Editing is actually pretty meh, which goes with my feeling towards the whole things just looks like its copying effective uses of this type of video: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuPgdqQKpq4T4zeqmTelnFg
Like this guy, kaptain kristian, knows effective editing in this way.

I see,thanks for sharing, you seem to know a thing or two about this stuff so I'll take your word for it.
The way he put the panels together was pretty neat to me but I have zero knowledge in this field so I'm not hard to impress  :ganishka:

In my opinion most of these analysis videos on youtube are very pseudo-intellectual. And the guys whole point is based on terms to make people think his arguement is smart, but it limits the arguement. Title should've been ''Kinetic vs Picturesque in anime'' then I'd be completly fine

The video is garbage, the only good thing about it is the video editing.

"Statements like this, along with the incredibly long hiatuses have made many question Miura's physical and mental health"

Many what ... many morons? This is such a ridiculous reasoning. Miura doesn't plan details out years in advance, and he takes breaks. Add it up PERHAPS he's insane or incapacitated! Why even include rumor-monger stuff like this along with the other primary source material? I guess I should be happy they didn't bring up Idolm@ster?

Despite that portion, it's good overall. But I think they dipped their toes a little too heavily into riffraff commentary. Interviews with Miura? Great. But who cares what the 2016 or the 2011 animation people have to say about things? Their involvement with the series is tangential at best.

This is why i dislike Berserk Youtube related content, it's not just some guy posting some comment somewhere, but instead spreading misinformation to the masses. A bunch of idiotic baseless claims in so many videos, and the viewers end up believing them because they don't know any better.

Thanks for the info! At first I was surprised that volume 39 isn't available yet, but then I remembered it took them years to stock the more recent ones after they launched this online store. I hope they'll make it available faster this time.

This distributor is taking pre-orders for a 7/21/2017 release date. If i remember correctly, volume 38 was released digitally the same day as the physical volume, I'm not sure how things have worked in the past, though. I was expecting it to be released the same day as the YA issue but Bookwalker put up their pre-order a few days ago.

I've been reading the Legend of Galactic Heroes novels, which have been released (finally) over the course of the past year. For the uninitiated, LoGH is a sci-fi known primarily for its 100+ episode animated series (OVA) that ran from the late 80s-early 90s. The OVAs are based on a series of five novels from the 80s.

I'm two books in right now, and in many ways I like these books even more than the OVAs-- which is quite a lot. The Kindle editions are $9 each. So for those who have already enjoyed the animation, I'd say buying these is seriously a no-brainer. Though it's hard for me to say though whether going in cold -- novels first -- would be the best way to experience the story. I think seeing the character and ship designs of the OVAs first helps make things easier to follow, overall.

I'm half way through the OVA series and i love it, it only gets better and better. I'm curious, how do you like the english translation/adaptation from VIZ? I know that there is probably no way to check the accuracy but how do you feel about the release itself?

There are also a few instances in the volume where panels get reused.
On the left, there are obviously differences but there are also striking similarities, hatch lines are placed in the exact same places throughout, the nose, the bangs on the hair etc.... On the right, the whole thing is copied then slightly adjusted because of the lighting of the scene. Again, this isn't a big deal at all and I'm sure you all noticed as well but they stuck out like a sore thumb.



My only complaint about the current berserk art style (and this is just minor) is the way guts' face looks, this is just personal preference but i prefer how he looked in previous volumes. Berserk's art style never stays and it will continue to evolve in the coming years. I hope i didn't come off as if i was making a big deal about any of this because that wasn't the intention.

I don't think it looks hideous at all,  don't get me wrong. the episode looks good but some of the faces looked off in some panels and when you compare it to the following episodes, it simply doesn't match up in my opinion.

I know that in recent times Miura hasn't done any significant changes to episodes in the volume release but i was hoping he might touch up episode 347. That episode looks worse than any other episode from the last few years, very unpolished.

Yeah most likely, or maybe it's a new novel for another character?

To be honest with you, I'd prefer to see these stories in the manga told by Miura himself, i don't want this novel thing to continue. Even though Miura is probably giving them direction, i still don't like the idea of someone other than him writing about these characters.

If this really is a "fully original story by Makoto Fukami" and it's supposed to be canon...  I don't think I even wanna fucking know about it.   :rickert:

Is this the same writer that did psycho pass? that series is fucking horrible, hopefully it's someone different.

Apparently there's going to be a new Berserk announcement next month on the 16th. What do you think it could be? 



Probably another anime, what else could it be? I hope I'm wrong.

It looks like the double sided poster will only have one new illustration.

Here it is, ill find a better quality version soon


The second one is the YA magazine cover for episode 344


I'm disappointed, I know he did illustrations for the anime and the novel but still...no room for another one? maybe he was pressed for time. I was really looking forward to these  :judo:

I love this cover. I tend to like the more busy looking covers though. I don't think messy is the right word but the covers that are filled corner to corner with tons of shit going on are the one's that I enjoy the most, with lot's of details crammed into it. For example, volume 5, 9, 11, 24, 25 and especially this new one. In fact I love this one even more coming off the last one, 38's cover, which was probably my least favorite of the entire series and the last in a line of covers that weren't really doing it for me, starting after Volume 34 (which might be my absolute favorite :femto:).

Agreed, I love covers where it's not just guts alone looking towards the reader in a certain pose, i get why they do it but i prefer covers with more stuff going on such as this one.

The colors are beautiful and really bring elfhelm to life.

From puella: Schierke says at some point "If we didn't know that it's a dream, we might even faint."

Wow so they have to constantly keep themselves in check while dealing with the creatures in this hellish scene, they can do it, i expect nothing less from our girls!

Immense episode. I love of all of this. Crazy to think that Elfhelm started on a very lighthearted note, and although we all knew that this kind of stuff was coming, in the big picture it creates a very well balanced atmosphere for this section. Those penis monsters  remind me a lot of Hr Giger designs for ''sexual'' stuff. Love the inclusion of Mozugs a lot too! Very clever use for it. Im also glad that Miura still did his own thing, instead of using the big hand for the depiction of the eclipse.


the sight of mozgus is always welcome, anytime any place  :ganishka:

This is a minor detail but i wonder how they will reach the final fragment, will they send the good ol' golems to break the branches?, will they use magic? will they fly over the branches to get close to the center? i wonder.

I'm also looking forward to the Sovereign of the flowerstorm's intervention soon, if the situation gets too intense and the girls are too tired or how she will pull them out of casca's mind.

Thank you! really loving the variety in these other creatures, and it looks like that manifestation of mozgus is helping the girls!
