Rushed pacing, lack of atmosphere and buildup, awful animation, blah, blah, blah. Same song and dance.

Least the scene towards the end where Guts cut through the possessed pagans was kinda' neat, particularly how the camera followed the sword. A rare moment where they actually took serious advantage of the animation medium. Too bad the heroic image of Guts and Casca's reunion was botched with their use of the crappy CG model. A shame, considering that's one of my favorite two-page spreads in the manga. And Isidro and Puck were entertaining, though that music during his attack on the pagans was stupid as hell. It sounds like something you sweat up a storm dancing to in the club, not to watch a kid stone people in a fantasy story. But then why should I be surprised? These are people who think Berserk needs to have metal guitar riffs.

"What the flippety-floop is going on here?" is what I would ask if I wasn't familiar with the source material. The rushed pacing and the way everything is cut together makes it nigh impossible to follow along. The pagan orgy was really bad about this. There just didn't seem to be any transition between the moments when Joachim was stripped, had sex with Nina, was brought to the Great Goat, and chased off the cliff. How is anyone supposed to know what, how or why any of that was happening? To say nothing of how it had absolutely no atmosphere, the hallucinations were half-assed, and they screwed up the depiction of the goat in a way that made it seem as though he was a monster. They similarly rushed through the bird-masked torturer's backstory so quickly, I wonder why they included it at all. It was completely mechanical, soulless and failed to humanize him, his cohorts, or Mozgus the way it did in the manga.

They also completely flubbed the Skull Knight's scene badly. We hear nothing about the metaphor about the world being a reflection of the moon on the water's surface, or how Guts is "a fish that breaches the water's surface." These are important for understanding some of the events to come, as well as the cosmology of the Berserk world. Excellent job educating viewers in your "standalone" series. :schierke:

And what was with the goddamn credits? Do you think that just because Monty Python's Flying Circus sometimes threw credits into the middle of the show for lulz, that you can too?

Overall, while this episode wasn't quite the dysentery that the first one was, it was still a nasty case of the runs.

Well im happy they played more of Hai yo in the preview. How often did the baby actually protect :casca: in the manga? I always found those scenes kind of confusing in the manga.
We saw the child keeping the specters at bay in the scene with Casca and Nina and again during the scene with the pagans. And more later on down the line. Presumably, it was the reason she was even able to survive outside the cave near Godot's for so long.

I can understand the concern here. But I'd probably trust Miura on that. I don't think Morda's addition would change much the path of progress Farnese has been and is still undergoing right now (as well as the presence of all witches and apprentices in the island). Like her reaction to Serpico's comments, she seemed to have embraced the place. And as far as Morda joining the party is concerned, I could actually see her introduction contributing further to Farnese's progress. Morda seems to be a quite contrasting character when put together with Schierke, so her presence could add a slightly different but complementing approach to her learning of magic. In addition, it could be just me, but as I was saying earlier, in some senses Morda reminds me abit the Farnese of old. The assertive, overconfident Farnese. I think regaining some of that confidence back could do her good, and maybe looking at Morda and having her presence influence her a bit could have a positive effect on her in that regard. Only this time said confidence would be much better founded and backed by something much more substantial (her magic knowledge) while also tempered by all the character lessons she already went through.

That said, it could be a very tough ordeal for Farnese.  Having to conciliate different approaches and advices could leave her even more confused in her lessons. But if she's able to take the best out of Schierke's methodic and conservative teachings, as well as some of Morda's own unique qualities that can help her grow, I think the result could be quite amazing.

It could also be a wealth of interesting and potentially humorous scenes/interactions. I could envision a scene with Schierke giving Farnese her daily lesson at some corner in the fields, telling her to mentalize things like this and that, only for some figure to suddenly butt in, popping again from some upside down diagonal angle and floating with her broomstick, seemingly out of nowhere and giving both a good scare, while saying "Oh, but you can also try in such and such". :slan: By the end of it, it would leave a very confused Farnese torn between one way or another.  :farnese:

Haha, anyway, all more speculation about how things could go, but the potential is there I believe. I hope Morda does indeed join for the rest of the journey and I can't wait to see more of her personality in the coming episodes. And again, here's hoping Serpico may have finally found his proper mistress.  :serpico:
Oh, I have full confidence that whatever Miura will do concerning Molda's place in the story and Farnese's continuing development (and...everything else for that matter), it will be interesting. It's a lot of these kind of stories involving team dynamics, there's oftentimes at least one character who doesn't seem like they have anything to contribute, and more often than not, it's because the writer fails to actually think of something for them to do. Farnese was a rare instance where not only was this intentionally invoked, but it was explored. Way back in Volume 23, the poor girl couldn't do anything right. She couldn't fight, hunt, cook, wash clothes, and she even botched her job watching over Casca for one night. But realizing how useless she was did show growth in her character, and ever since then, she's been getting progressively better and more useful to the group, with every improvement always eliciting some happiness and even a surge of confidence. But those feelings of insecurity are still there, and they make themselves known whenever Farnese feels she can't quite do enough, such as be the person who can soothe Guts' pain as we saw during the gang's time on the Sea Horse. So I can't help but wonder what awaits her, because the dynamics in Guts' group are about to make a tremendous shift. There could be good things, and there could be bad, and the possibilities are just...heh, I don't even know where to begin.

Don't know if I would say Molda is comparable to the Farnese of old though. Farnese was mentally volatile, always lashing out and abusing her authority to hide her own feelings of inadequacy while using religious zeal to justify it. So far, Molda just comes across as a bratty teenager. She's brash, rebellious, immature and full of herself, but pretty normal all things considered. I do hope Farnese and Molda get along, if they do indeed interact with one another.

I didn't, but it's not without warrant
Touchť, but the image they used is honestly ridiculous, anatomically impossible to pull without killing the victim, and impossible to take seriously. And this is not a scene you want to screw up. And my mistake, it wasn't a tentacle, but a giant finger.

I said in the previous topic that this series would still suck even if it was a 100% faithful to the source material, and I stand by that. This episode proved it. It followed the plot of the manga almost word for word, but everything just felt off. It's like the writers and directors know the steps, but they can't feel the rhythm. The conversation with Godot and Guts' scene in the cave are supposed to be emotional and contemplative moments, but the pacing never takes a moment to pause in the action and let the words sink in for both the characters and the audience. This entire section is supposed to be devoted to breaking Guts down and building him up again into a better, stronger person, with his vow to "never lose [Casca] again" and Godot's reforging of the sword meant to be the emotionally climatic moments symbolizing Guts' "rebirth," but once again, the frantic pacing just resulted in a shallow payoff that didn't feel earned.

The voice acting is similarly flat. Guts always sounds like he's reading his lines; there's never any change in his emotional state. And I'm completely with Walter on Godot; his abrasive and brutally honest personality is nowhere to be seen here. Mozgus was similarly unimpressive. When he gets his :mozgus: face going, he just talks a little louder and faster, as if he's slightly irate, and not filled with manic, frothing-at-the-mouth rage and religious fervor.

And once again, the music is bad and it's used badly. Guts realizes that Casca is in danger, so they play those obnoxious guitar riffs. And heroic music starts blaring from out of nowhere from the moment of silent victory as Guts renews himself and vows to find Casca. Both instances were audibly distracting and highly inappropriate.

Also, did anyone notice that in the scenes depicting Casca in the Eclipse, that she has a tentacle jammed in her mouth? Seriously, that was just fucking excessive and unnecessary.

People are mentioning things in the episode that don't make sense or might be lost of those who have not read the manga.  This is going to continue to happen for the rest of this run.  I actually like they way they are handling it - instead of trying to retcon or shove extra footage in, just do the manga and move on whlie letting the chips fall where they may.  If they continue to adapt the series then this particular problem should resolve istelf. 
While it certainly is nice that we saw considerably fewer changes and retcons this time around and that they're just sticking to what was in the manga, the fact that they shoved a number of characters, concepts, events, and ideas in without any real explanation is just going to leave fresh viewers completely lost. Which isn't automatically a bad thing, but it runs contrary to Kurosu's previous claims that the series was standalone. If he honestly believes that, then he's deluded, and if new viewers were never supposed to be a factor in this series, then why were all the goddamn changes in the previous episodes made in the first place? It seems like nobody knows who they're making this show for.

The one with the large nose is throwing me off a bit. Its incredibly caricatured by Berserk standards. That guy would be freakish in real life. But that could be intentional.

As people have discussed this seems to be the moment Guts crew finally get to hear his past and the reasons behind his quest. What a huge moment this is going to be!
Eh, it could all just be a sign of their advanced age. These people are ancient, with more years to their lives than any human could ever hope to achieve through normal means, so some unusual looks are probably to be expected. I'm likely giving it more thought than it really deserves.

Dat Casca face. To think that it could be one of the last times we'll see her acting all goofy. There's something very bittersweet about that. I'm awaiting Casca's return to form with baited breath, but I can't help but feel that I'm going to miss her funny antics. Tragic as her condition is, I do also find her strangely adorable.

Doesn't look like Cucca and company were expecting them to bring in a Beherit. But it does look like Guts might be about to spill the beans to everyone present about a number of things he prefers to be quiet about.

Nice to see the gang being treated to a hot meal. Always enjoyed those rare and (relatively) peaceful moments, though it seems like there might be a bit of tension in the air this time. Can't help but notice that Azan is being left out though. Come on, guy, take off the damn helmet already! :azan:

Finally, I'm impressed by the design of the elders. A lot of artists tend to get lazy when they go about drawing these wizardy kind of old men and make them all clones of each other, but Miura's given each of them a distinctive look. Though is there some reason why they all have those odd black eyes like what Daiba sports, or is that just a stylistic choice?

There is something that happens in this that I wonder if it came off the same in the manga. When Guts is taking off with Farnese on the horse Farnese almost hits the ground. Did she throw herself off or did Guts deliberately dangle her head above the stones on purpose. Thats not how played out in the manga?
Considering Puck's horrified reactions directed at Guts, as well as the look of surprise on Farnese's face when she started to fall in this scene, it's pretty clear Guts deliberately dangled her off the horse in the manga. So the anime didn't really change anything on this front.

Honestly, this anime seems to me as if it's a fan-made project rather than an adaptation. I had a few points to make, but some of you guys have already beaten me to it.

I haven't put too much thought into the episode (not worth it), but could someone explain to me why they didn't simply adapt the actual scene from the manga instead of this whole haunted house business?
I think the idea was to introduce the concept of apostles and Beherits to anyone in the audience who was unfamiliar with Berserk. And since they chose to skip the Snake Baron, the Count, and Rosine so they move right along to the Birth Ceremony chapter, they decided that inserting an Apostle fight into the middle of Binding Chains was the most efficient compromise. Emphasis on "I think," because they did a really poor job of it what with how sloppily the apostle's backstory came out.

Shame that you won't be doing any more impressions. They were entertaining while they lasted (more entertaining than the actual show, that's for damn sure), but I understand. Venting gets old after a while and frustration just isn't worth the price (or eight bucks a month), and it's far more productive to focus on more positive things, like the manga, after all.

My opinion stands but i just saw the 4,8 IGN review. I have NO time in my life for their awfully anime coverage (their anime podcast is the one i am not subscribed too) but you know that you are in deep trouble of the "yay anime" fan-girl, who previously liked the show, is starting to doubt it. This is shocking, as the only thing i ask of the anime by now is to advertise the manga :schnoz: .
Methinks that the stellar score they gave the first episode was driven entirely by excitement and anticipation. Now that it's died down and the hype glasses are off, even IGN has to see the show for what it truly is.

Berserk Anime / Re: New Berserk Anime for 2016
« on: July 15, 2016, 10:18:38 PM »
What a shitty interview. Time to rip it up.

"Reo Kurosu: There is a lot to cover because Berserk such a long series. To adapt it to animation we had to have a concept, so we decided to focus on Gutsís travels. Fitting it into a limited amount of episodes with that concept, we had to make choices about compressing, omitting, and even expanding parts of the story. Some of the material in the series will also be original, such as episode 3 which is completely original, written by Miura-sensei."
Which would have been better accomplished if you started with the Black Swordsman arc. Or the Lost Children chapter. Or...if you picked up where the movies left off and segued into either of those. Because the Birth Ceremony chapter that you (or whatever hack was in charge) are so insistent about animating is most definitely not about "Guts' travels." Also, episode 3 is out now and we can see plain as day that it is not completely original. You just threw in an unnecessary apostle fight and backstory into the middle of the Binding Chains chapter. Reo Kurosu, you're officially full of shit now.

"RK: It will all be within the context of the original series. As far as new content, there will be new action scenes. There are certain things you can do in animation that you canít do in manga. Although Iím not sure if thatís specifically what Miura-sensei had in mind."
None of which you actually accomplished in this episode. Or any of the others so far. Because it takes more than moving picture to make a good animated story.

RK: We see Berserk as a standalone series but weíre not going to be neglectful of past events. The manga was originally published in 1989 so itís a classic now. There are a lot of new fans who may not be familiar with the original manga, so we want to be able to introduce them to the story while covering new ground.

We decided to include some imagery in the opening cinematic and plan to bring some of that backstory out with flashbacks like what we included in episode 2. As we follow Gutsís travels, heíll think back about the past events.
It remains to be seen how standalone this will really be, but your company's efforts to bring those unfamiliar with the manga, or Berserk in general, up to speed leaves a lot to be desired. The manga itself already provided the perfect means to introduce people to Berserk via the Black Swordsman arc, and then your people decided they knew better than Miura.

RK: For this series weíre trying to do something new. The director is a 2D animator so what goes on in his mind and what he puts on storyboard is all in 2D. From there itís all about choosing which tool to use between full CG animation, traditional 2D, or a hybrid of the two. The director and the 2D and 3D studios will meet and discuss what to use when depending upon what weíre trying to accomplish with each scene.
Ah, a repeat of what you already said in the Q&A panel. Here's the result of your studio's attempt to "do something new": the 3D animation looks like shit. Either get a director who understands 3D animation, since that's what most of this series is animated with, or let your current director focus on his area of expertise. That is, of course, assuming the guy you have wasn't the only director your company was able to afford.

Berserk Anime / Re: 2016 Berserk TV series: Episode 3
« on: July 15, 2016, 07:39:08 PM »
Well, that was better than the previous episode. But "better" does not mean good.

The "completely original story" supposedly penned by Miura did nothing for me. So the pig apostle liked the lady because she was nice to him and...what? What brought him to the level of despair needed for the Beherit to activate? What prompted him to sacrifice her? Was it because she showed fear of him? What made her fearful of him? When the fuck was she ever nice to him? Was she even the sacrifice? You can't just show a handful of images without context and expect the audience to understand what you're trying to get across. If Miura really wrote this, then he either has no idea how to write for television, he didn't give a damn about it, or the animators and/or director implemented it poorly. Considering how the most faithful bits of the anime still fare poorly, I'm inclined to believe it's the third.

I don't even know why they decided to make this particular apostle such a badass. This guy was like, the lowest of the low of apostles. Guts killed him absolutely no problem when he got his hands on the Dragon Slayer, so it's a bit eye-rolling to see him give our hero so much trouble. They really could have, should have used a more impressive beast.

Things got better after he died, if only because we got to see more direct material from the manga translated faithfully. But it was still botched. These guys have no idea how to create atmosphere or generate suspense. And because they don't know how to do any of that, nothing they do feels particularly climatic. Without emphasizing Farnese's growing terror or Guts' growing rage as he battles things that should not exist, the scene with the horse lacks the dramatic impact it had in the manga. Likewise, for the section building up to the Kushan invasion. Those pages in the manga were absolutely masterful in how they built tension, with Midland shown to be declining due to plague, the king dying cold and alone in his bed, the bells sounding off his passing to the ears of Owen, Anna, and Charlotte, the people unsure about what will happen...and one lone child noticing how the mountains are moving. It was all worked together to slowly build up to something, making the sudden appearance of the Kushan army with their war elephants in tow unexpectedly terrifying. But here...the rushed pacing, frantic cutting, and the music that suddenly starts blaring before we even see the war elephant just doesn't feel meaningful.

Frankly, even if this was 100% faithful to the source material, even if it made no cuts, this adaptation would still suck. These people know nothing about telling a story.

Other things to observe...

  • "This is a real, preserved human being!" Thank you for your keen insight, Captain Obvious.
  • Farnese has no nipples, but we see she has pubic hair. Nice going with the censorship, geniuses.
  • Guts took a really deep bite on the leg from the apostle, but walks off as if nothing happens by the end. Healing from an injury like that with elf dust is a bit hard to swallow...and they haven't even introduced the healing properties of elf dust yet!
  • What the fuck was with the credits? The music was audibly distracting when played over dialogue, the scrolling text gets in the way of the scene that's playing out, and there was still five more minutes to go! Seriously, what was the point of this?

Even the attempts to promote the series are on a shoestring budget. Public speaking is clearly another field Kurosu has no experience with. I mean, seriously, someone asks him why they decided to start at the Black Swordsman arc instead of the Fantasia arc, and he talks about how the series is a hybrid of 2D and 3D animation. I mean, it's a moronic question and all, but that answer had nothing to do with it! I can understand trying to evade a question. I can understand trying to look like you know more than you really do. I can understand misinterpreting what people are asking you (as he did when he was asked about the Idea of Evil). But to go off on a completely unrelated subject just boggles my mind.

It was very awkward panel when it wasn't being annoying. Seems like everywhere we go, all anyone will ever say about Berserk is fucking boats and Idolmaster. :schierke:

I don't know who to be more annoyed by. The producer, who's clearly an amateur who knows little to nothing about Berserk (let alone sound design, film editing, etc.), or the interviewer who either doesn't know what good animation is, or is lying through her teeth about enjoying the CG. I guess I'll go with the producer; at least caring isn't supposed to be in Victoria's job description.

Hearing it directly from Kurosu, I'm personally finding the whole notion of Miura working with the project "from top to bottom" doubtful. Just sounds like typical marketing speak, and he doesn't come across as very honest to me. I can't wait to see episode three now; the guy says it's "a whole new story that no one's ever seen before." But from the preview, it honestly looks more like they're just condensing more material from the manga. If that turns out to be the case, rather than something "completely original," then it'll prove that most everything he says is bullshit.

From a financial standpoint only, aren't we somewhat obligated to grit our teeth and support this?  Don't shoot me down, just here me out a little.  Berserk is a niche property, and from the little I know (yes, little) about marketing, if we continue to shoot down every crappy release, won't we be more likely to get more, yet spaced out crap?

I'm honestly wondering should one of these adaptations, bad as they may be, if one were to find financial success, could this in turn grant us someone's attention who wants to invest in a bigger, better translation of the story?
Do we financially support a car company that makes shoddy vehicles that break down and/or explode in the hopes that they'll make better cars in the future? No, we don't. We let them go out of business like the incompetents they are. Just as we shouldn't have to support shitty anime studios that churn shoddily-made shows we don't enjoy. You can only blame the budget Berserk was given for so much, but the truth of the matter is that with all the cuts and changes they made for pretty much no reason, it's abundantly clear that the people behind this series don't understand, care or respect what Berserk is. Or don't have the talent to bring it to life. Supporting crap like this is just going to encourage more studios to lower their quality standards.

Besides, I don't think there's going to ever be another Berserk anime once this abomination is done, and there's actually no way it's going to feel like a complete product either, no matter how far in the timeline it gets. It's a miracle the series even got another shot at all.

I knew it was going to be crap going in and I was still disappointed. I honestly found it insulting.

Well at least it can't be worse XD.
To be honest we already knew they were going to ruin the first episodes lets see if the arc they have planned to show is at least decent.
Hey, don't jinx it. Hmmm, on second thought, jinx away. A (large) part of me would like to see this get cancelled. One, to send a message to every studio exec out there that this level of quality and disrespect is not acceptable, for Berserk or any series. And two, to prove to every apologist that the removals, changes, and cut corners that were made were never justifiable, no matter how much they defended them because of...reasons similar to a psychological phenomenon named after a certain city in Sweden.

Here are some reviews "cough"

Berserk Episode 1 - "The Branded Swordsman" Review - IGN
What are people seeing in this? Is there something I (and I suppose nearly everyone else here) am missing? Is pacing no longer an important quality to storytelling? Is telling a coherent story that makes sense at all a thing of the past? I don't know how anyone who's unfamiliar with the source material could understand what in Frith's name is fucking going on in this episode due to how haphazardly it was cut together.

Then again, that hack at Kotaku clearly doesn't know what she's talking about. The second she calls Berserk a shonen should be your cue to hit the "back" button.

It's always interesting to see an artist try new things, even if the results are not always straight-up improvements of previous work. Not a fan of the cover personally, but that's in large part due to not really enjoying another piece of Guts striking a pose, and I have mixed feelings about the image with Rickert and Erika, but I do love the way Puck and Ivalera look.

No, not necessarily. Schierke has been performing on the field of battle, searching deep for astral entities where there are none, and still coming back with a source of power. By Molda's own admission, she's trapped on the island, and I can't imagine she has much comparable experience.
Now, now, I don't think we should dismiss Molda entirely. I mean, sure Schierke has more worldly experience, has been in more terrifying situations, has had to use her magic to fight and kill, has been teaching another the ways of magic, and so on. But Molda's awesome power has our favorite witch beat in one particular area.

She can defy even the unstoppable force of gravity to keep her hat on!

Can Schierke keep her hat on? No! It takes only a slight breeze, a pesky elf, or an insolent monkey for her headware to start rolling away.

Anyway, if Molda is to join the crew, I wonder what effect that would have on Farnese, if any? I've always thought that her training to be a witch was so that she would continue to have a purpose in the team dynamic (and narrative) once Casca no longer required her babying, and learning magic has indeed been helping the girl feel better about herself. But would the presence of another witch (or two, or three) wreck her confidence again since she would possibly feel even more redundant than ever before? Farnese already has enough mixed feelings wherever Guts and Casca are concerned.

Very charming. Whole thing reminded me of something Studio Ghibli would make. Loved the look of the tree houses and all the snippets of witches just going on about their daily lives. And we got to see a couple of rarely-seen expressions from Guts. I wonder what was said to make him smile?

Ahhh, July is going to be a very long month this year.
