Nice! Good luck with post production Bob.

Totally pointless, #Barf.

Recently finished watching Stranger Things on Netflix. I'd seen a lot of talk about it on my feed and to be honest I thought it was some show about UFO mysteries like a documentary of sorts. So when I saw the first episode, I was mildly surprised this wasn't a documentary but an actual TV show. And, it's pretty good. Gives you just about enough info to move to the next episode. Halfway through I kinda guessed where it was going and the execution was well done. If you like science fiction, board games (D&D) mixed in with horror, this's right up your alley.

S4 of Silicon Valley was great with the exception of the last episode.

Also in the middle of Orphan Black that a friend recommended and it's decent at best. S1 was fun because there's all that mystery learning where or how things are laid out but once you've gone past it, the story kinda dies down a bit but I've continued to watch S3 to view it from a technical side because the show's about clones and curious how they film those clones all together in one scene. Some scenes don't have the usual "lets show the actor's back" kinda thing.

And finally, 2 episodes into the new season of Mr. Robot. So far so good. They were filming a scene 'round the corner from my workplace and I stuck on for 5 mins to watch the filming. I enjoyed S1 a lot when it came out last year and I'm trying to watch this with low expectations. This reminds me ... at a July 4th BBQ, I was in the company of an acquaintance who did props for the show and her friend who did props for S2 of Daredevil who talked about the Punisher, his gun and all that jazz. The fella was discussing it with a Punisher fan (friend I was with) and it was a fun, interesting conversation to listen to. He showed us a video of the kind of rail-gun that Arnold had in T2, cool stuff.

Finally listened to this last night, lovely podcast guys (thanks a lot for taking the time to give us a full analysis) and glad you're back Griffith. You were a lot more serious on this one than you usually are.

It's been too hot lately and this past week I've been enjoying a cup of grapefruit pulp tea from a bubble tea spot close to me to kick things off every morning.

^ that sequel was pretty awful.

Kong Skull Island -

I'm not completely sold by the trailer but it looks like it'll be similar to the recent Godzilla (same producers) and it does look cinematic. But the story?

new Blair Witch -

The sequels the franchise has had so far could never hold a candle to the original. Although this looks like it's got plenty of gas in the jump-scare department (not a fan of that kind of horror next to straight out gore), it looks like a semi rehash.

Justice League ... so DC thought they should goa full 180 on the humorless BvS and make ... this? Their answer to Deadpool -

xXx 2 ... looks just as bad as The Last Witch Hunter ...Deepika's cute but I can't waste money on this just for her -

Vin Diesel's best movie - Iron Giant.

Shouldn't it be the head of some dude instead of his apostle form? :miura: Or perhaps the taxidermist worked quicker than the Vortex of Souls?

Haha! Speaking of a taxidermist (and reminded of the Skullcast for episode 3), perhaps they got their idea from last week's episode ...

What's with the bone? Do they think Zodd is a dog or something? It's to play fetch? To insert in his mouth? I'm also not sure it's in the spirit of the character to have a reproduction of his head to mount on a wall, as if he was a hunting trophy.

Same thought came to mind. Makes no sense and their clarification on the bone is so dumb. Zodd doesn't kill, eat/deflesh his opponents.

2nd trailer for Godzilla Resurgence -

The fella looks massive, slow, strong and look at that tail! 00:57 to 1:06 is so badass. I hope the story is bleak. The way the military are aligned to attack is reminiscent of 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone.


Wonder Woman trailer -

That guitar-theme from BvS is meh/ annoying but decent trailer.

King Arthur -

Guy Richie has a knack of making his films have a sense of kinetic urgency and the first half of the trailer is kinda run of the mill but the end of it made me veeeery curious.

Congrats on your purchase. Were these acquired recently directly from AOW? I could be wrong but generally speaking the first number they start with is a 1 and not a 0. So this could be a one off sale by them, like the statues they sell in auctions or Character Exhibition.

Amazing work so far on Guts and seeing that extent of the scale of the diorama (with all those characters you plan to include like Zodd, Irvine and the background) is just "Wow!". Looking forward to seeing updates from you, good luck! How long did it take you to complete Guts?

That idea of evil question and response was weird. I think a pretty telling question is the one that follows, speaking about the series writer dictating the direction of the series - what to include and what to omit, focus being solely on Guts. Cringeworthy stupid as hell last question.

This issue also contains a supplemental issue with four consecutive episodes from right after Lost Children, and a fun little "leather tray" for keeping your change or keys or whatever.

Mine didn't come with a leather tray :puck:

Cool idea Walter. I'm not going to be able to make that time slot or be able to watch the episode when it comes out but I could try next week when my boss isn't around. Looking forward to hearing everyone's views this evening!

Last week's YA release carries both episodes 343 and 344. Just FYI for members who are on the bend whether or not to pick up the YA issue. There also appears to be a 4 page interview plus the continuation of the short comic interview that was translated by puella early June (please correct me if I'm wrong guys). You're in for a treat. Buy the issue guys and support Berserk!

When I tried to pick it up last week, the store said they only had 1 issue and it was reserved. I found this a little strange/surprising and placed an order for it. The issues I ordered came in today. All these years they've carried at least 3/5 copies per issue, most of which are reserved for those subscribing to the magazine.

Reading the new episode and catching up with the topic and summary + translations (Thanks Aaz and puella!).

I'm in the same boat as you jackson_hurley. PS3 owner, only difference that I currently use a VAIO (laptop) I bought in 2009 that's on it's last legs :sad:.

Is this spec decent enough to run the game Walter? Intel Core 2 Duo P9600 (2.66 GHz), 6 GB Memory, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650.

^ that's pretty neat, new fans grab a copy quick.

Since my visit to Kino yesterday, I was meaning to see what the state of DH's re-released volumes were, in terms of stock. With the new anime airing in a week, there's always going to be interest in the series and the possibility of new fans checking out/ buying the manga (hopefully). At a time like this, here's where we stand with DH volume availability on their website - volumes not in stock are 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 18, 20, 25, 27, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 and 36.

RightStuff currently has every volume available (phew!) with the exception of volume 5. Thankfully, TFAW has that volume. So, that's good for any fan who might want to support the series as of today.

^ ditto, I miss his posts. Hope he's doing good.

Thanks for another great podcast. I'd written down notes but I'm not carrying them on me. A friend introduced me to the idea of keeping a bullet journal and as my first entry, I started to jot down observations or questions instead of what a bullet journal's main function (tasks/reminder log)!

Thanks for the images. Too bad about that spine... Is there still a tiny, original image when you first open the volume (inside of the dust jacket)? I always looked forward to what Miura would do for those, and I'd be sad to see them go.
Yep it's still there. This time it's an image of a cherry blossom tree inside a new border which we can probably expect to see for all future images (I guess?). I'll PM a picture of it when I get home. Another change I noticed is you no longer open the volume to a page of Jets Comics, instead there's a page at the back of the volume of ... I can't remember the name.

Picked up the volume today and just finished reading it. Lovely.

Higher quality image of the new volume cover.

I must say, the colors on the physical volume look subdued and darker (or duller) compared to that ^ high quality image.

In terms of differences with the volumes that came before, the image on the inside of the sleeve is lovely, as always and comes in a new border/frame with a Beherit on top. Everything is now bordered - the cover, the inner sleeve small drawing and the new image of Puck on the back of the cover. The empty spaces of the cover have this granite/marble-like effect vs plain white on older volumes.

Difference in the spine (I need to make room on the shelf and couldn't picture all past volumes)

The back of the volume with the granite/marble-like effect

The volume also came with a promo-sleeve like the last 3 volumes. I don't know what it says! It looks like there are signed copies of the volume cover (?) and Beherits with dates for a promotional thing (maybe those are YA release dates and there's something Berserk related in those YA releases?)

Here's the sad part from my visit to Kinokuniya - I went through the Japanese volume section to find Volume 1 with the alternate cover and I walked through the entire section, keeping in mind I was looking for a long stack of volumes on the shelf but I couldn't find any Berserk. I'd walked through 8/10 aisles twice now. Afraid the store might close soon, sought help and went to the info-desk to ask if they had Berserk volumes in Japanese. The helper got up and exclaimed "Yeah, we have them but you won't find them easily. They're on the shelf facing the window and we only have a few" ... when we got to the shelf, they only had Volumes 33, 36, 37 - that's it. Volume 38 was being sold up front, with other newly released manga. I was honestly extremely surprised and blurted out a "That's it?". The helper said "Yeah, not many people buying Berserk. There's a long wait for each volume. We don't have other volumes at the store".
