Creation Station / Berserk Chronicles is gone?
« on: October 23, 2015, 03:33:08 AM »
Hi guys, I saw some uncredited Berserk colors drifting around that I thought I recognised as being Armhan from Berserk Chronicles' old work.  But I went to confirm and the site is gone.

ETA: Berserk Chronicles officially closed August 31, 2014.

If anyone saved off any of the colors from that site, I'd love to re-archive them.  Wayback Machine only has a few of them.  The art in question is this one, I've seen it around since at least 2008.  http://static.zerochan.net/Guts.full.342936.jpg  If anyone happens to remember if it's Armhan's or someone else's I'd love to know.

Hope he is OK.  I have been waiting a while to hear from him too, but on the opposite end - I owe him money!   :farnese:

Agreed, agreed.  My favorite thing to come out of it is David Killstien's cut, and I'm sure there are/will be other good fan-edits that take the stuffing out of the movie trilogy.

Lest you forget, Griffith might very well be currently unavailable due to the full moon. :slan:

It's just occurred to me that if it ever turns out that anyone besides moonlight boy can use the world tree network to get around, it'll make the Berserk 'world map' a heck of a lot smaller.  At present it seems like moonlight boy and Skull Knight himself are the only worldly entities we know of that seem to be able to travel great distances at will.  (And moonlight boy was always able to poof himself around by hundreds of yards at least.)  Though I don't recall if Griffith has gone anywhere very far since the tree went up, so we wouldn't know yet if he still uses the Zodd Express.  (and also of course the ongoing opacity of the griffith/boy venn diagram)

What I'm most interested to see is the consequences of this event. The street has become a battleground. How will people react to this? Whatever happens, I clearly see Griffith sending a false message to the masses, in order to mantain the control.

Yeah, I'm curious about this too.  And about what kind of reprimand Rakshas will get for starting such a fight in the city, or if he'll be excused since it was with non-citizens, or if he is generally excused for being Rakshas.  And whether anyone will try to punish the Bakiraka for using fire in a fight in the city/fighting in the city instead of going to some kind of authority to complain about Rakshas  :???:  Or if none of that will really come up due to the whole party leaving at great speed  :casca:

Welcome filip!

Quite so.  I do think a rescue will be at hand; story-structure-wise I'd expect Daiba.  But Sonia showing up with Grunbeld or somebody as backup is 100% more likely than Griffith.  It would be a pretty big shift in Griffith's character to be personally interested in Rickert again after more or less coming to a close on the story of their relationship.  Griffith does not have anything to prove to Rickert.  Even if he did want to see Rickert safe out of the city for whatever reason he'd send someone else to take care of it.

("That mask... You're Rakshas!"). So that mask was something he must have had for many years, perhaps even when he was still a human.

I think the mask's design was meant to represent that someone tried to execute him.  What's now his center eye as a killing blow and the two drops, mortal blood.  If he had that mask before, I think it would be missing the drops at least. 

(While I'm at it, my other wild-ass-apostle-theory is that Irvine's sacrifice was his hunting dog.)

With this dramatic and theatrical setting, it would be cool if Rakshas could wear some kind of tragic comic mask or a kid's mask stolen from the marketplace  :void:

It's a coconut.  That's how you know if he's following you.  Clip clop.  Clip clop.  Where's it coming from?!?!  CLIP CLOP!!    :rakshas:

Yeah, I got a Japanese PS2 and like 12 games as a bundle off ebay a couple years ago for like $90.  If you wait around for one you can get a pretty good price.  Looks like current ebay price is in the $65 - $100 range (shipped).

Yeah, I can't really watch it either.  Though I agree with the popular sentiment that the out-takes are pretty fun. 

On the flip side, though, I cannot begin to fathom the way Hiroyuki Yoshino played Isidro in the PS2 game.  It's baffling.  To the point that I assume there must be some pop culture trope kind of thing they're doing that I am completely unaware of.

I know you guys are mostly talking about the English cast here but I have to take the opportunity to say that I enjoyed the TV series' Japanese cast just so, so much back when I first saw Berserk.  I loved that Casca was Asuka and Chun-Li; I loved that Judeau was Kaworu, Xellos, and Wizardmon;  I loved that Griffith was Sephiroth, Mummymon and Oikawa.  Castlevania: Lament of Innocence was WAY more fun being all full of Guts' attack yells, and I was very glad he was Guts in the PS2 game as well.  I just really liked Canna's Guts and his performance in general. 

By contrast, while there are a lot of English voice actors I like in their own shows, there aren't many dub actors that have put in performances that really made me sit up and pay attention.  Pretty much just Jamieson Price - who gets a LOT of points for an even more compelling Oikawa than Morikawa's.  Though there are a lot of guys that do a good job: David Kaye and Richard Epcar both do a fine Batou, for instance.  It seems like dubbing is really kind of a tough and thankless job in that respect - it's 90% just hitting the right cues and even if you can be really good you're still at the mercy of how good your team is, even more than in regular voice acting.

Well, he still has mattbrowning.com, though it's not functioning.  It looks to me like he went to overhaul it as a Wordpress site this year, and it broke, and he hasn't redone it yet.   But it does look like he still owns the domain so matt at mattbrowning.com might still get through to him.  In the meantime, I've archived with permission his stuff from this thread; that can be found here:  http://lithrael.com/ig/thumbnails.php?album=4

But yeah, I see CnC's, Proj's, and my work show up in lots of social media stuffs uncredited.

Thanks guys!  ApostleBob, yeah, a bunch at http://www.lithrael.com/ig/index.php?cat=2

I just got the chance to do some proper scans so here's Rickert again super huge.

The ruins remind me a great deal of the Temple of Poseidon in Paestum.

Thanks for the kind words!

I can vouch for the quality of the digital editions. They look pristine -- so long as you don't mind reading things on your computer.

Oh yeah, I like the digital editions, it's just also very fun to have the pages in your hand and I haven't bought any hardcopy YA since episode 313.

Quote from: Walter
That four-issue recap is kind of like a mini-volume 38 at this point, since that Vol likely won't be out until early 2016.

Good point.

Most excellent news!!

The previous four episodes will be republished in the coming issue to refresh people's memory.

Oh, cool!  I wouldn't mind getting my hands on that either.  I'll have to figure out where I might be able to buy it, as my favorite proxy has retired.

Kung Fury was completely adorable.  What a great Thor.  And I loved the viking barbarians!  It kept pushing the silly factor further than I expected.   :puck:

Watched Dracula Untold a few months ago.  It was pretty fun and very nicely made, but mostly waffle, added nothing and had nothing to say.  The postscript, though, was so stupid I can't understand why they wanted to do it. 

Just rented Lucy.  It was terrible.  It felt like someone just wanted to make a movie of someone violently tripping for a couple hours.  A lot of the effects are neat.  The plot is so nonexistent it seemed like it was meant to be read as metaphor.  The sciencey twaddle was PAINFUL OUCH.  Worse than the worst Star Trek spinoff sciencey twaddle.  I don't know why they even pretended.  It would have worked better with the same premise as 2012's Chronicle, as far as the sciencey twaddle part. 

Saw the last Hobbit movie a little while back.  It was too goofy.  Had some fun moments, though, and I can't help but approve of any scene with Thranduil in it.  (Unfortunately for all the Hobbit movies, Martin Freeman bugs the ever livin' heck out of me, so I can't enjoy it when he's playing characters you aren't supposed to hate.  All his screen time as Bilbo was just like UGH IT'S MARTIN FREEMAN PLAYING BILBO AS A LITTLE FUSSY PRICK.  Now I understand Bilbo *is* a little bit of a fussy prick at times, but not THAT fucken' much.)

Also went to see Jupiter Ascending, and it was a lot of fun and a visual treat.  Probably too silly for people who do not like silly things to happen in epic looking movies.  The villains were pretty weak, though.  They did pack a lot of style into them but they didn't grab me.  Considering how epically evil they were - well, I know half the point was that it was casual epic evil, but still.  They didn't sell it much. 

Just got back from Kingsman: The Secret Service, which was also very fun.  I couldn't really get all the way on board with Sam Jackson's character but it looked like he (and everyone) was having fun making the movie anyways and I like that kind of thing.  There's a berserk massacre in a church that really just straight up amazed me.  I'm not gonna say they walked a fine line, exactly, with the tone, but IMO they found a great mood for the whole movie, self-aware without losing all the suspense.  I noticed Dave Gibbons' name in the credits, and it turns out it's loosely based on a comic book by him and Mark Millar. 

I really liked Mark Strong in it, who I'd just seen in The Imitation Game, which was also pretty solid, though I have a feeling if I was British I'd be....  Oh my god, Keira Knightley is ACTUALLY ENGLISH?  I...  This whole time I thought she was American faking an accent.  Nevermind.  Anyway, Imitation Game is good enough that even though Cumberbatch bugs me, I managed to forget to be annoyed by his presence.
