Gobs is a genius.  A SK.net mystery science theater of these movies would make them enjoyable.

Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: Dark Horse Releases
« on: October 03, 2012, 12:45:57 AM »
Maybe it's because it's eight pages shorter but my volume 36 is much thinner than volume 35.  My Japanese tankobans of 35 and 36 look to be the same size.  I think Dark Horse lowered the quality again like with volume 30  :schierke:.  It has a different feel to it than my other volumes.  Anyone else notice this?

Berserk Merchandise / Re: Max Factory/Berserk collaboration Limited Figma

Do we know if there's a head without the helmet?

I'm guessing there isn't because the rest of the figure is set up for the armor being active, like how its covering his arms and hands.

Shootin' the Breeze / Re: Will you be voting this year?
« on: February 28, 2012, 01:07:02 AM »
We'll see, though I'm not particularly worried about whether it's intentional or not.

I see you changed your post around since I last read it a few days ago.  It's less... brash.  Maybe you realized it was you who was shitting up the thread.  :iva:

That's individualist nonsense, and unless you're posting via your brainwaves from isolation in the wilderness or a vacuum I'm afraid collectivist nonsense is what we'll have to deal with here to some degree (even the supposed message of non-consent that nobody would know or care about). Anyway, as I said before, that is a rather counterproductive ideology in this context.

If sticking to my principles and taking who I vote for and why seriously is counterproductive, how should I vote then?  How do you come to a descision?

Quote
I made that very point, so you do see what I'm getting at; you simply choose to ignore it when convenient, such as when your own culpability is pointed out. In any case, not voting really doesn't serve any cause other than personal vanity or precisely what one wouldn't have voted for. If it makes you feel above it all, fine, but know that you're full of it.

They certainly dictated the terms Congressional Republicans could use to negotiate with Obama. The candidates are a different mess, though the current state of the Republican primary is due in no small part to their influence, unintended or not.

I guess I misunderstood what you were getting at with the Tea Party.  And what culpability?  I haven't seen a "none of the above" box on a ballet before.  Or am I supposed to turn in an empty ballet?

All that aside, I don't see what that has to do with the original argument of "if you don't vote you can't complain."  As I already explained, it's based on a false premise, writing in a candidate is also a waste of time, and I never did mention that it's literally just not true.  I didn't vote in the last federal elections and I have complained many times since then.

I seem to get the feeling that you think that I won't vote at all, which is not the case, just probable.

Quote
On the contrary, that pretension seems more important to you than the moral substance behind it.

You're the one that said it.  I just quantified it.  Any satisfaction I get out of it is negated by how depressing it is to think about.

I don't mean to shit up the thread if that's how you are seeing it.

Long overdue...

Yes, writing in your dog's name would be a waste of time. Good one. Likewise, the rest of your stock non-sequiturs aren't even in the same direction as the point. It's not just about candidates or the outcomes of elections, and it's especially not about YOU, your candidate, or how much you personally decide the outcome of an election, which is unfortunately the ignorant and self-centered perspective too many people grow up having of electoral politics.

This is collectivist nonsense.  My vote is about me and my convictions.  People that did not vote can complain just as much, if not more, than those that did.  Having government in your life is not voluntary.

Quote
The point is to affect the agenda before the election even happens. Look at the effect the Tea Party had on the Republicans, and by extension the entire Government, before the last elections specifically because the GOP was afraid of their potential power as a voting block. You know why? Because they're a bunch of old white people that vote. The reason most other groups can't get that kind of traction is because of people like you.

I really don't see what you are getting at.  Just because I don't vote does not mean I don't support organizations or stand behind a cause.  Voting is not the only way to spread ideas, however I will concede that it can be an effective way through coercion.  And besides, I don't see how the tea party movement has changed much in the republican party.  Just look at their major presidential candidates,  they're all socialists.

Quote
Talk about a false premise; this is incredibly naive, delusional, and hypocritical since you're the one effecting no change and complying by inaction. People like you contribute to the disconnect between the whole of the citizenry and government. Your culpability is second only to those actively supporting such policies. Like I said, citizens can move the needle before the ballots are even cast, and voting is the least one can do to accomplish that. You're basically sitting back and allowing all those things you're whining about to happen unchallenged; like it or not, you're part of the problem. If you don't care, fine, but you can climb right off your hobby high horse and stop shitting this thread like a diaper wrapped around your adolescent political mind.

So I have the moral high ground on over 129 million people?  I guess I could live with that.

This made me gag a bit.

All politicians are full of shit. Pick the one you think is least full of it. If you don't vote though, shut your fucking face when it comes time to complain. I'd rather waste time arguing with someone on the other side of the aisle than argue with some dumbass who was too busy playing XBOX to get off his lazy ass and vote.

This is such a ridiculous statement.  It's right up there with "If you don't vote, you hate America".  It's based on the false premise that my vote will have an effect on the out come of an election.  The odds of candidate that I support being on the ballet this fall is close to zero.

Sure I can go "preform my civic duty" by wasting my time and write in my dogs name, but it will have no effect on the election.  Also by exercising my freedom not to vote, it in way tells the government that they are ruling without my consent.

Also whether or not I vote for the lesser of two evils, the same person will get into office and do evil.  I personally would prefer not to have the violation of property rights and deaths of innocent people on my hands.

I always thought it will be great for Charlotte and other Midland officials see Guts oppose Griffith.  However I never thought that the whole break-in scene could happen again in a similar manner.  That would be amazing.

Other interactions I am looking forward to that you guys didn't mention is between Sonia/Mule and Schierke/Isidro.

I've been lurking forever, as long as I can remember reading the manga(late 2003 I think).  Just wanted to say that I really enjoyed the podcast, it was cool to hear you guys talk about berserk after all these years of reading your posts on the forums.

Looking forward to the next one.

That pic was an easy one: Volume 9, episode 141, page 64.  :slan:
(I only have the German volumes, so excuse the pageno, if it's wrong.)


none of those numbers make sense to me   :???:

Next:



Don't get stumped, this one's easy. :ganishka:

I'll play if this is still going on.  Miura likes to draw stumps.

Volume 8, episode 36, page 217



Hint:  It's a spirit that Puck finishes off.

Berserk Anime / Re: New Berserk animation project confirmed
« on: January 11, 2011, 03:05:03 PM »
Very nice sir.

I'm just thankful for experiencing Berserk coming to theaters in my life time.

So when they say 'movie' we can assume it will show in theaters for sure?  Part of me thinks that's great, Berserk deserves it.  The rest of me knows that those of us around the world will have to wait even longer to see it. :sad:

Amazing work,  can't wait to see it finished
