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".

Barring the Pachinko (which I have no access to ... still want to play it cos it's so over the top), this'll be the first time I'll get to play a Berserk game as it is released. So, I'm excited about that part!

Speaking of the game play, I have no experience with Dynasty Warriors/Musou (had to look it up), so I don't know if I'll like/hate it or be good/suck at it but I'm up for the challenge.

Also love to do write ups / reviews on music, which I'll be doing regularly pretty soon. I've been obsessed with music for damn near my whole life.

How's that Atrium Carceri review coming up? Any other bands/ albums in the works?

Taking cue from Aaz (good idea mate), upped my pledge. Good luck Bob!

You guy's were in Boston? WHy didn'y anyone call me That's my town! :azan: Finally East Coast gets some love instead of stupid Cali! :troll:

I've been to Boston I think twice so far, for a couple of hours each time. I always thought it was 2 hours away but a co-worker told me it's actually 4 hours from New York. Heck, it's only 4 hours (same as Baltimore) ... I'd be down to hang out dude and check out some cool local eats.

I checked out the movie Green Room recently. I had seen the directors previous film Blue Ruin and really enjoyed it, so I expected good things.

It totally blew me away. Very intense and realistic feeling. I was on the edge of my seat all the way through.

Anyone else watched this one yet? I definitely recommend checking it out.

It's been out for a while but I was waiting on friends and they finally set a date - we got tickets to watch it over the weekend. I loved Blue Ruin too, stoked to check this out. Glad to hear you enjoyed it. Was it a better movie experience compared to Blue?

This past weekend I took the bus to Philly with a friend to see Usher and The Roots perform at The Roots Picnic. I'd been to Philly twice in the past. The first time was with dad for a quick lunch and the second time was in 2011 when the owner of Geno's passed away and two friends + I hit up the city for a Philly Cheese steak crawl. We hit up Pat's, then Geno's and finally Jim's which was the best out of the three.

Arrived around lunch and hit up John's Roast Pork which we were told had good Roast Pork and Philly Cheese steak sandwiches. The cheese steak sandwich was on the OK side and what I found interesting and different was they served it with sesame bread, it added a different flavor to the mix. The roast pork was not too bad, came with spinach.

After that and a short break, we headed to the show. I'm not that familiar with Usher or The Roots but seeing them live was one of those 'wow that was really good' kinda experiences. They played 2 hours straight. And, I didn't expect to be that close to the front either.

I don't know Photoshop, so thank you Imgur for these bubble-text boxes

What I didn't notice from my trips before was that the Convention Area of Philly is full of wall arts/ murals. We were driving around and couldn't stop to appreciate them one by one cos that would take a lot of time but I took these from a moving car.

Next day we hit up a hand pulled noodle spot for lunch in Chinatown followed by doufufaa and dessert at A La Mousse

We were to get back by Bolt Bus and we got there 4 mins before departure, just in time. Pre-booked tickets in hand we were pushed to the stand-by for the next bus because we didn't come 5 mins before departure. Instead, the ticket person accepted people paying cash, which I'm sure he pocketed for himself. Anyway, we finally got on 2 buses later. All in all, a good adventurous and successful albeit short trip. I plan to take the Greyhound or Peter Pan that'll drop me at Chinatown's doorstep and gobble my way through one afternoon/ evening.
