Such a great episode. One of the best SK close up fo sho.

Just to clarify things up, :ganishka: had his own father assassinated.
It says on page 3 that his father died when the beast that he was riding ended up trampling him to death during a march,
but there was a dart that was blown to the beast to make it go berserk, thus trampling the father to death.  :ganishka: then made sure to kill the dart blower as to silence him for good and became the next king. Only to be betrayed by his own son... just as he did his father..

The last few lines on the last page says that, in particular, the middle one: That one blow has been swung down on God*Hand*Femto!
Yet, the page also shows the sound effect of the sword making contact. (only reason why it would be there imo)
Time will only tell in the next episode if really,  :SK: managed to strike Femto.

Ohhh Shnyaps!! Most excellent newz!
I got that warm fuzzy feeling when I heard its OFFICIAL that Arnie is back in Terminator Salvation.
But this just blew that away.
Femto is back, seriously SK too? Overload.

This episode was great.
The only thing laking was simply put, where was SkullKnight?
Everyone around Wyndham was there to see Ganishka's new form unveil but it was lacking for me to not see Skull Knight there.
It felt like it was a missing piece by him not being there but none the less, a brilliant episode fo sho.

It aint over say it aint so.
It will never be over til Teresia the Slug count's daughter makes another appearance and shanks Guts or something. I feel she will have a role some time in the future but not any time soon but until I [can only hope to] see her again, Berserk wil not end.

It was a very informative post and no doubt, I'm more informed on how SK feels about scanlators and I have to agree that I myself do not like the works of scanlators in general as they try to impose "their" translations so to speak or the quality in which it is degrading to the author because it takes away from what authors are trying to get to the readers. I feel the "Love" that we all share simply for the love of Berserk here.

But gettin back on topic, no doubt this episode was very refreshing being able to see Silat speak, and get more back story to the Bakiraka clan and a glimpse of what is to come.

If you ask me, no doubt his armor would help him survive longer during an eclipse. As to doing damage if any to the god hands, I think it is possible because we did get a hint as to his Dragon Slayer is now infused with some mysterious powers from slaying so many apostles thus far. Think back when the little witch was handing out magical weapons and armors to Serpico and the rest. When she tried to give him an axe, he replied he didn't need any and he only needed his sword which had some black mist flowing along side it. That maybe the key to striking and injuring god hands if the occasion ever comes?

Is it me or does anyone else feel that something is a bit strange here?
First of all, I'm not here to accuse or disrespect anyone so I do not want to be miss understood.
Anyone else feel like the Translation group Evil Genius is exceptionally early with their version of Episode 294?

Most of you I'm sure are familiar with their works and are all knowledgeable with Berserk stuff in general. Evil Genius is undoubtedly one of them. It took them more then a week to put out Episode 293 which was very minimal in conversations. I'm sure to put out their Quality work is no doubt more time consuming then me just posting on a forum were all can just read and correspond the lines with the pages. I mean they go to get the raw first which no doubt they get it from but they have to translate it, edit it, clear the text bubbles, add the new English text, polish it etc. Other factors that fall in to place such as the priority of the people who are doing all the work in order to put out the 21 page .rar file out asap but it seems like they just copied the translation off here.

I don't intend to take all the credit for my translation as to other do help me out weather it be my friends or the admins or fans from, but I was wondering how if any folks from feel of the works that translators such as I put out vs the ones of Evil Genius?

I'd like to point out that they do a good work of translations but it seems the readers or rather will say the non Japanese readers are getting shorted cause they seem to infuse a lot of "popular" English in the translations, and by that I mean its the language you would expect while talking to some one on the street in the modern day world. This could very well be my very own opinion but it seems to me, the text and dialogue that Miura puts out is very hard to understand sometimes even for a normal average Japanese person so to speak. Some of this stuff, you wouldn't figure out what he is trying to say without some times using a dictionary or just second guessing from the text or scenery of the manga. In that sense what would readers come to expect is better comparing a more Direct and literal translation..."as Close as I can get it to be" vs someone infusing popular wording to get the same message across?

I think you're right, Silat might have not changed his thoughts as I think Miura wants to keep them as an independent 3rd party but I could not help to think that in some way Silat has changed his views, though his open minded-ways of thinking is one of his positive traits.

err.. what was I thinking, the showdown Can't be next episode. Like Miura always does... nothing ever epic will ever start or happen in terms of this late in the development of the Volume... like 3 or less episodes to go to finish Volume 33.. if anything he will start it early 34 or at least there  after? right? word?.. lol

Though the next episode will be key since the city is empty of citizens and such. It must be the new and revised form of Ganishka that we may get to see in its entirety or a peek of it but one can only hope...

Good that they keep it that way for Berserk, I thought it was totally retarted that they flipped it for the "Parasite" managa when in the JPN, one of the main character's name is derived from being right handed and called "Miggy" as in "righty" for English. But then in the ENG they translated it to "Lefty."

I'm fluent in Japanese and English so there was really no reason for me to get the DH releases any how as I have all the Japan releases of the manga. Though I'm very curious to know IF the art in its self is Flipped. And by that I mean if taking the JPN art as the original, in the DH releases are they Flipped so that it accommodates for the English text to fit in well with reading left to right as opposed to the JPN text from Top to bottom, left to right? I know its been done for the manga "Parasite" by Hitoshi Iwaaki when they translated it to English.

I got the idea from Peregrine_Falcon's post with the 2 cover arts and you can totally tell by the direction of Griffith's horse facing left and right.

For those that have not checked it out yet, there is a translation by me up in the translation section of episode 293 and may answer your questions that you may have. Honestly I didn't get why the doors were sealed up in the prison but after like 6 times reviewing the art and story it just hit me just as it did Raban on page 17 :serpico:.

Sup folks new to :serpico:
Very nice gathering place for fans of Berserk and an excellent site if i may add. Never new this place till I met a good friend that referred me here. I know the time line is by no means the LAW, but it did bring up one question to my mind about the God hands and the "Angels" and was wondering if anyone can help me out.

"So I checked out and its pretty dam good hot sauce and checked out most of the stuff it has to offer though it brought up one issue that I can't figure out. The time line itself seems pretty dam accurate though in volume 10-11, when Guts and Casca go save Griffith, it explains the 4 angels coming down from heaven to destroy Emperor Gaiseric's kingdom while they are in the prison tower. At the bottom of the tower it even shows all those branded corpse. Assuming those [4 Angels] are indeed the God Hand, how do they exist 1000 years before, if Void  :void: was born into the first God Hand after the empires destruction!? " :???:

Not sure if this has already been discussed in another thread so if its a repeat i apologize, but any meaningful in site would be kewl.
