Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: Dark Horse Releases
« on: October 25, 2016, 03:25:16 PM »
That new spine looks awful in comparison, ooofff.

I'm always lending out my volumes to friends who want to read em but I might have to get selective because if there's going to be damage, I can't afford to grab another volume that'll have a different spine in the middle of the stack ... 38 and on I presume will look like this? UGH.

Guys calm down just buy the whole series again.

:ganishka:

You sweet summer children don't know the pain of collecting the three (four?!) different spines throughout Viz's various rebrandings of Vagabond since 2003.  :judo:

I know what you mean :sad: ... the only consolation is that the spines for Vagabond's Japanese issues have stayed the same over the years. With Berserk, that's now changed too.

Warning - the trailer gives away too much, you might want to stop it around the mid 1 min mark.

Passengers - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BWWWQzTpNU

The film looks gorgeous but I can't get a 100% behind it ... nice nod to The Shining and Sunshine from whatever the trailer shows.

It's not too long a break which's nice and agree with you Walter ^_^.

Having said that, episode 331 and on up until now has been a treasure of information that I find myself going back to often, re-reading it over and over with puella's translations. This break will personally give me some time to read the last 5 episodes without rushing into em and re-listen their corresponding podcasts.

Like Iko's other films, I'll be grinding my teeth or wincing through most of the action. Looks pretty good.

Saw Kubo and the Two Strings and really enjoyed it. Great movie with a lot of heart and beautifully animated! :ubik:
Man, I missed this in theaters!

Last night I watched the 2nd Rurouni Kenshin movie from the trilogy - Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno. I'd seen it before thanks to DirectDK (that was one mighty marathon) and thought the movies progressively got better in the trilogy. It'd been a while so I didn't remember all of it but parts that stood out were - I liked the soundtrack in the first two sequences; Saito, old man Okina and Cho's parts remained just as memorable even though Saito wasn't given much development or screen time, he continued to be a badass and had good screen presence. The first time I watched it, I doubted how (well) they were going to adapt the final Kenshin - Shishio fight and was left impressed when I did watch it. So, can't wait to see the third film - Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends - on the big screen next month.

Manga Mausoleum / Re: Friend wants to know where to read the berserk manga
« on: September 14, 2016, 02:40:46 PM »
I wonder how many laws i broke then. Either way now that i am a fan of the manga, in the future i do plan to buy some volumes (i don't have any income right now so that'll be difficult until i do) And my friend is currently in the same situation. so you know.

Hey 8 dollars you say? Hmmm... now im reconsidering..

Where there's a will, there's a way. If you want to support the series, you must buy the manga in either of the various mediums that are available to all of us.

Start slow, buy 1 volume every month or couple of weeks whenever you can afford it. A couple of folks I've met prefer to go digital over physical and for that too, you can purchase the new episodes in Japanese. So there's not just one but a few options out there for fans.

Shootin' the Breeze / Re: What are you drinking? (general liquid thread)
« on: September 12, 2016, 04:16:37 PM »
I've been drinking a lot of (cold/iced) milk tea off late, every morning.

Last night I had a can of Fanta after months and it felt SO goddamn sweet, sugar heavy. I've tried to wane myself from drinking soda, so it's down to about a can or two once a month. Even if I'm out to a dinner, I'm happy with drinking water or hot tea, depending on the restaurant.

As far as beers go, last month a friend from overseas was visiting and I got my go-to beer - Framboise Lambic Belgian Raspberry. I hadn't had it in months and it tasted real sweet. Back in the day it was a good beer to get my foot in the beer-door but I didn't enjoy it as much recently. I'll need to jump to something less sweet.

Good luck mate!

For guys on the board looking to transact with Tirade, he's one of the most helpful, meticulous and reliable collectors out there. You've essentially hit the jackpot if you're dealing with him.

Vagabond / Re: New Readers (No Spoilers)
« on: September 12, 2016, 02:59:47 PM »
Glad you're enjoying the manga so far! There are a few subtle things going on through the series that grabs you every once in a while and the art is simply gorgeous.

Another thing was I the only one who was slightly let down that Matahachi was not going to be the Sasaki Kojiro that would battle against Musashi? I feel going that route would have been quite interesting, to see the everyman use his rival as inspiration to rise up the ranks and become a lethal wielder of the Nodachi.

I didn't think it would go that way to be honest because it didn't fit Matahachi's nature to push himself to a completely different level of skill and temperament or conviction. It's still good to see his own evolution and you'll see it when you catch up to the late 30's (in volume numbers).

« on: September 12, 2016, 02:25:11 PM »
Been playing The King of Fighters XIV with a friend and so far it's decent. I'm not a 100% on board with the game play or the speed of it but I appreciate the inclusion of Geese Howard. Still no sign of good ol Heidern but ... some of those new characters are either ridiculous or good in a dangerous kinda way.

Ever since I read the post above I've wanted to buy something from that site, and I finally did (I can't believe it took me over five years  :farnese:). I got my order today and I couldn't be happier with what I got.

Definitely man, that site is goddamn amazing if you're a science fiction or horror film fan. I only own 4 things from it so far. Slow and steady ... what did you get if you don't mind me asking? I have a Sunshine tee, a HAL tee and cap and a Nostromo jacket.

Buying / Selling / [FS] AOW collection and possibly more
« on: August 20, 2016, 03:24:25 PM »
Time for these statues and kits to find a new home. The list below is about everything I own, except a few other items I'm not decided on. I'm in the middle of packing for moving into another apartment and will take pictures of each statue individually before boxing them.

All packages will be shipped on the Saturday of the week because it'll allow me enough time to pack it securely and carefully. Plus it'll be easier to do a packaging-supply-run on my day off.

For the cost of shipping, I wouldn't know what the exact amount would come to to be honest. For most, if not all, members/ buyers in the past, I've shipped the statue without receipt of the shipping money. Once the statue was shipped, pictures of the receipts/ customs forms/ tracking information were shared wit the buyer and the buyer would pay me separately for the exact cost of shipping. If it's a long time member on the board, I trust they will reimburse me the shipping amount and so far, it's worked.

For international buyers, all packages will be insured and declared for the exact amount you pay for the statue. If you'd like to lower the declared value (so you wouldn't have to pay a higher customs fee), please let me know at the time of the purchase.

All of them come in their AOW boxes, unless it's a kit on the list and they've all been displayed in a glass case.

If you are sending money via Paypal - please add 4% to the total price if it is marked as Goods/ Services. Alternatively, mark is as a Gift.

Guts Maken - $200
Guts Magun - $200
Guts And Zodd Desperate Attack - $350 (damaged DS was glued)
Guts Attack Form - $200
Guts: Black swordsman Lost Children (1/6) - $350
Guts 2010 1/6 Exclusive II - $750
Guts 100 Man Slayer kit by berserkberserk - make an offer on this if interested.
Guts PVC - $150

If you buy all of the remaining Guts statues, I'll throw in the Guts PVC for free.

Casca Hawk Soldier - $100
Casca Episode Of Birth Feast - $150

Grunbeld with demon soldier - $400

Houma Zodd - $250
Houma Irvine - $250
Houma Grunbeld - $600

If you buy all Houma statues, I'll offer a further discount of $100.

Zodd II with Bone Skull Knight - $450
Zodd Revelations with Irvine (damaged bow-string) - $350
Human Zoddo - $75

Edit - I sold the Berserker and Femto 1:1 helmets from James P and I might just hold on to the SK 1:1 helmet for now. If you're interested, make me a serious offer.

I'll update the topic with more statues or kits as and when I come across them while I gather things for my move. Here's a quick shot of the cabinets as they stand this morning. You won't see some of my bigger statues like Zodd & Wyald or 20th Anniversary or Skull Knight on Horse Backlighting or Guts on Horse (Doldrey) or Femto Rebirth and a few more since I've sold them over the past 2/3 years.

I truly think Zack is Kubrik´s true heir and not the also great Nolan.

The film made money so i am getting my universe and Kubrik himself was often hated by the critics and the public alike during his career (Clockwork Orange or Lolita), so yeah. I can work with that.

Here are my top 5 directors with the best @ the start for future reference: Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorsese, Zack Snyder, James Cameron and Steven Spielberg. (I saw all their films and all made duds.)

Your reasoning for Snyder being Kubrick's heir is problematic because you're basing it on the fact that because Snyder isn't loved for his work today, he's another Kubrick? That's it? I mean, there are a bunch of directors out there whose works people don't like (because it's crap), so what's special about Snyder vs the rest? Name one film Snyder directed that isn't all out action/ superhero related? That Dawn of The Dead remake was awful.

Shootin' the Breeze / Re: Anyone Watch Pride or UFC?
« on: August 18, 2016, 07:14:06 PM »


UFC 202 is this Saturday and looking forward to the main card. Last time I predicted something (post above), I was totally wrong (haha! =_=). So no predictions this time. The rematch makes a lot of sense financially but the first time they fought was more about going all out and showing their own abilities vs now where they're going to train a certain way with the purpose of beating that opponent. It's what I like about last minute cancellations. I wonder how much Conor's ground game has improved or if he'll attack Nate's habit of being heavy on the front foot.

Who do you think would win?
