Shootin' the Breeze / Where To Send Fan Mail
« on: October 15, 2017, 04:00:28 AM »
I hope this post is okay, if not I apologize! (I tried searching, but nothing came up?!)
I've been trying to find some way to send Kentaro Miura fan mail. Berserk has changed my life in so many ways; I've never been so influenced by something in my life! It has helped me see things in a different way and basically opened my eyes. It also saved my life as I had hit rock bottom prior to discovering it! I would every much like to express my appreciation in my own words.

Does anyone know an address to communicate to the writer/artists?

Character Cove / Re: Why Does Puck Change Appearance?

This pretty much sums it up.

Puck isn't a shape-shifter, Miura simply changes the way he is depicted depending on the situation. This is a well-known type of Japanese caricature called "super deformed". It's typically used to underline comical circumstances.

And it's not limited to Puck in Berserk, it's applied to other characters as well, like Ivalera, Isidro and a bunch of others. Even Guts & Casca have had little caricatural depictions before. Puck is the most recognizable because he's by far the one who's most featured in that way and also because of his unique design (of which both variations are chestnut-themed).

Oh okay, that makes more sense now. And I'm new to Manga, so this was the first time I've seen such a thing. I appreciate your understanding and patience. And I do remember when specifically Isidro looked more comical like from those cartoon comics in newspapers, lol. I probably should have correlated this, but I've got a lot on my brain. Anyway, thanks again.

Character Cove / Why Does Puck Change Appearance?
« on: September 09, 2017, 01:19:01 PM »
I've tried searching but I can't seem to find anything, whether it is here on this forum or anywhere else. And I ask to not be so hard on me if this is a stupid question: Why does Puck's physical form change from a typical small humanoid fairy to a puffy almost Moogle final fantasy like? I've read the entire series (currently re-reading again) and there's no explanation. Is Puck literally changing their physical appearance or some sort of illusion for the reader or something.

Again, sorry if this is a stupid question, but it's been bugging me!

Creation Station / Re: My Berserk drawings

Just amazing! It looks like it came right out of the volumes! Superb job! I wish I could draw like that. I can do some, but not at that detail level. I do have artbooks in my book collection. And since I just got into Berserk a month ago it might inspire me to actually work on drawing!

Hey, that was pretty good. In fact, it kinds of matches the sound I heard in my head when he spoke :P
Awesome job!

Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: How Did You Find Out About Berserk?

Greetings everyone, I'm another new fan of the Berserk series. And I'm even more excited to find this website! My personal story is back in May I was watching a youtube video about a character from a favorite RPG game and I was so fascinated by the character analysis I decided to watch the youtuber's other videos and there were one on Berserk, about a predict ending. There were spoilers, but I was very intrigued to everything I heard, plus there were tons of berserk pages from throughout the series that I just had to read! I purchased Volume 1 and was hooked from the first page! The artwork is just amazing and beyond this world. I have a deep interest in Japanes and other Asian cultures, and their artwork is amazing. I own the Three Hardback volumes for the Final Fantasy series. Anyway, I am nearly finished with Volume 28 and have ordered the entire series online! I just couldn't wait and had to have a copy of each.

No spoilers here, but I think this is one of the best fictional pieces of works that exists! The characters are very realistic, the world is so alive, and the story is unlike anything I have ever heard of. And I'm excited to see when the ending final comes. I bet it will be spectacular.

I look forward to discussing this series with many others. I won't take long to finish up to the latest released volume. I just can't quit. I care about these characters so much I just have to learn all of what happens. This author has superb creativity and has become a favorite! (I've been wanting to get into the Manga genre, and finally I have. Berserk is my first and will always be my favorite :)
