Now Out:

Unfortunately I just can't justify it. I don't care for Ubik, so $250 (with shipping) for a 1/12 scale Void figure is just too much.

I won't post all the pictures here, but according to MFC there is a repaint of the Figma Guts coming in December!

I genuinely don't understand how anyone could look at the awful pacing, the wholesale disregard or ignorance of key scenes, and say this improves on what Miura had done.

For the record I wouldn't once say that I'd prefer this over the manga. It's certainly no improvement on Miura's work. All I will say is it's entertaining for what it is and imho doesn't deserve the bashing it's receiving. It's my go-to anime of the season and I would be disappointed if it isn't renewed.

Which parts were so confusing to you exactly?  It's fairly straightforward...

To be honest I had a hard time following the underlying story of the demon child, the events with the Egg of the Perfect World, the rebirth of Griffith and the appearance of The Boy and how they are all related (or not). Perhaps a lot of it was due to reading bad translations back in 2008. Either way I found the anime dumbed it down significantly enough to make it easier for me to understand.

Damn! Reading all these posts shocks me. I wasn't up on the communities response to this anime at all, personally I love it!!!

I'm not new to the manga. Picked it up in 2007 and been running with it ever since. Watched the 1997 anime twice and the film trilogy.

I'm actually really really enjoying this season. Every time that music play and Guts swings his sword and carves up monsters I get goose pimples!!

I love the music, the SFX, the CGI, the character designs, the monsters. For sure, of course it could be better if a studio like Madhouse picked it up, but after having no anime for 20 years and dealing with numerous hiatuses, I'm just so pleased to be able to see my favourite characters animated, coloured and voiced!!

I don't know when this season will end, but I really hope they do Guts and Zodd vs Ganishka!! I'll admit they've taken liberties with the source material, omitting important scenes and changing the sequence of some events, but I can see their doing it to make it more coherent and comprehensible for casual viewers. I had to re-read some chapters, and ever entire volumes 3/4 times to actually understand what was going on.

By comparison the anime is very easy to follow.

Hey guys, hate to Necro this thread, but I just recently got Berserker Guts Figma and wanted to share my pictures with the community.

I've been a fan of Berserk since 2007 when I first watched the 1997 anime. I had my reservations at first as it seemed very period drama, but the  character development and interactions were so good it really drew me in. Then once we met Zodd I was hooked, and the eclipse had me insta-buy volumes 13-17 from dark horse (that's all that were out at the time).

I've been following it religiously ever since, but in the last 10 years, the only other media i've purchased were the PS2, and recent PS4 games.

I've been a big manga figure collector even before I started Berserk (with Kaiyodo Fist of The North Star and Max Factory Guyver), but I never rated the Berserk figures. Either QC never seemed up to par, or they were overpriced polystones.

Figma Berserker is my very first Berserk Figure, and i'm really hoping for a Ver.2 Black Swordsman and post eclipse Casca at some point! I'm also considering getting next months Void!

Anyway, here are my pictures, enjoy:
