I've now made a few additions to my Recurring Apostle Rogues Gallery as of this recent episode. Miura has started reusing a few designs from the Ganishka battle and the Eclipse. I love how each apostle is individually unique and how each was once human and has a tragic backstory of their own. Amazing designs.

Apostle Rogues Gallery

This is quite awesome, thanks for sharing!

I encountered an old game for MS-DOS called "Sword of the Samurai", it has so many elements that remind me of Mount&Blade. That's what I'm going to be playing if I find it.

I can't say I'm not a bit dissapointed because of the switch, but I welcome this episode with open arms. We are advancing, and that's always a good thing. Not to mention the incredible art Miura always delivers, and this creature hunt Griffith is leading is quite interesting, let's see where it goes from here.  :puck:

Awesome! Did you read the manga from the beginning or where the movies drop?

I got into Berserk with the 1997 anime, and read the manga from the beginning after that!

Nice to have you here!

Hey! Welcome! I hope you enjoy your stay. This is THE Berserk forum, so I'm glad you are here!

May I ask where are you from and how you got into Berserk?

Shootin' the Breeze / Re: tom's introduction

Welcome Tom! Fancy pants you got there ;-)

Alright, so for starters, here is the full version of the prophecy, correctly translated:

"When the sun will have died five times, a red lake will appear at the west of the city with a name both new and ancient, and it will be the sign that the fifth angel is born. The angel shall be a Falcon of Darkness. Both master of the sinful black sheep and king of the blind white sheep. The one who shall bring an age of darkness upon the world."

Notice that the Falcon of Light is not referenced here. This prophecy is specifically about the Falcon of Darkness.

We don't know who created the prophecy, but it predates the Holy See as far as we understand. We know that because Schierke quotes the prophecy when she's first introduced (while gathering intelligence on Griffith), indicating that it is known among magic users.

The Holy Iron Chain Knights (led by Farnese) mistook Guts for the Falcon of Darkness, but that was long ago. I guess in theory, yes, if the Holy See had known Griffith was really the Falcon of Darkness the prophecy warns against, they might have opposed him. But things have worked out very differently. Griffith was recognized as their prophesized savior and has been acting as such. It seems pretty clear by now that the Holy See as a religion was part of a long-term scheme to benefit the God Hand and their master (the Idea of Evil). And at the current point of the story, it's not clear whatever leadership they had still exists aside from the Pontiff (who's completely enraptured by Griffith).

Yes, the resemblance isn't coincidental. Walter first connected those dots over 15 years ago.

Excellent, I understand know. Thanks for taking your time to answer my doubts. I know it can be tiresome to answer the same things or discussing the same themes over and over again through the years, so I appreciate that you take your time to answer newcomers like me.

I can sleep well now...Until the next episode.

Speculation Nation / I don't understand the prophecy, can you help me?

I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but I thought we could get into speculations with this.

I'm not understanding the prophecy about the Hawk of Darkness/Light.

Azan, at the "red lake", said: "The revelations said that when the sun dies five times a red lake will appear to the west of the city with a name both new and old."

And Farnese said: "It is proof that the fifth angel will alight. The angel is the Hawk of Darkness. The master of the sinful black sheep, the king of the blind white sheep."

I know Griffith/Femto is both, but my questions are...Who "created" this prophesy? I mean, did the Holy See write it? I know they confused the Hawk of Darkness with Guts, but if they make the connections and realize Griffith is the Hawk of Darkness, would they be against him?

Could the God Hand be related to the Holy See? I don't know why but the brand reminds me of the Holy See logo.

All this prophesy and Holy See stuff it's just confusing for me, maybe you can help me. And sorry for my bad english.

Off Topic: Wow, my karma went down from 7 to 2, maybe I did something wrong? Is there a way to see what comments of mine got down voted? So I can improve.

Alright, Walter pays for the drinks! Let's celebrate

The countries weren't named until vol 5, so there is absolutely no way to know, nor would it matter which he fought for on a given battle, because the next sortie may have been for another.

I know it wouldn't matter which side he fought for on a given battle, but maybe someone could tell the sides because of armor design or something like that, but now I know that there were no names for the countries until vol 5, that's good to know.

Thanks Walter.

Hey guys.

Like the title says, is there any info about it? I kinda want to know if Gambino was fighting for Midland or Tudor.

And another question. In the first movie, Midland soldiers/mercenaries had blue color in their armors, and Tudor had red, is that correct? So, when Guts fought Bazuso, he was in Tudor's side?

I know he didn't pick a side (neither Gambino), he just worked as a mercenary for the army that can pay him. But I want to know what side it was.

Sorry my bad english, and sorry if this was discussed before, I couldn't find anything about it.

She isn't like Rickert, who was not present for the Eclipse and found something new to protect in Erica to help him grow past the loss of the Falcons.

And he slapped that bastard  :rickert:

Speculation Nation / Re: What kind of ENDING you hope you will NOT see?
« on: December 24, 2017, 05:47:06 PM »
I would not like an ending with everyone happy, everything ok.
I would not like an ending with everyone dead, everything not ok.
I would not like an ending with Guts just dying (but I would not mind if he follows SK's path, only if it makes sense if that happens)

I trust Miura. I'm not saying that Berserk or Miura is perfect. He will end the story the way it's supposed to end. Maybe some of us will not like how it ends, but that doesn't mean it will end wrong or without any sense. Berserk has come a long way (and a long way ahead!) and it is made from dedication, detail and love of it's creator. Whatever path Miura chooses to follow with Berserk, it will be the right one, that is if he continues with his dedication, detail and love, something we just know he will. It can't go wrong. Imagine you started reading Berserk when it just came out. When the eclipse came, of course you didn't want Casca to get raped (I guess. I wouldn't), or all of the hawks killed. But if you look back from today, you can see everything that happened makes Berserk what it is. There are no plotholes, nothing pulled out of Miura's ass. So I think that even if something happens and I don't like it, or if Berserk ends in a way I don't like, it will still be the correct way, Berserk way, Miura's way.

I'm not saying this because you said otherwise or nothing like that. I just wanted to say this and I thought this was the right place.

Nice thread! Sorry my bad english.

Yeah I found out too after joining this forum.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I was just taking a tongue-in-cheek look at Guts practical "lineage" and took the opportunity to bust on Grunny because he's such a big, lovable dork.

That's what I thought when I read your comment, but then I read the other ones and I started to doubt.

Anyway, sorry for the off-topic.

Am I missing something about Grunbeld? I'm not following you guys in this point.
