I suppose it's true for every other figure, but I'm fairly new to purchasing Berserk merchandise so I can't really gauge as much right now :serpico:

Not the movie!

Uhhmm do any of you have problems sleeping??

For me, I can't sleep before 1 or 2 am, and I think it's part fault of my body clock conditioned to sleep at around then (from the time I passed 10th grade and was allowed to have the intahnetz), and part fault of either being on the laptop or in front of the TV. I wake up at around 6 like clockwork everyday and I'm a fairly heavy sleeper - you can kick me, and I won't wake up haha! But, I'm sure it's unhealthy to sleep for lesser hours than the usual 8, I presume.

What's your experience been?

I have a lot of left over/ backup or unused sleep hours that it takes me literally 5-10 seconds to go to sleep if I decide to or simply close my eyes. I did notice last month that when I'd overate, I'd fall asleep so easily so early that it got rid of my dark circles :guts:. Only down side to that was putting on 18 pounds in 6 weeks :rawr:

Tomorrow - clean the pad, give out my clothes to the laundromat for dry cleaning and wash (I need someone to show me how to use these goddarn wash machines ... I'm too scared to try it on my own and shrink everything!), catch up with movies, anime, manga.
Sunday - hit up Central Park *coughtocheckoutthebeautifulwomensunbathingcough*, practice some guitar shtuffz, catch up with anime, manga, the works, stay away from work emails.

Just came back from a trip to New York. I went into a Japanese store and when I got to the top of the escalator, I saw this on the wall and I had to get a picture.

Yeah, they still have this up there. Man, that store's got everything but it's also more expensive than the other comic/ manga stores around here. But, I still go there just to check out the J-babes :carcus:

Heh I see your point, understandable. I know those flashbacks and putting the plot together (understanding it) was a damper for a few friends online. But, I'll see if I can pick up the book. So much to read grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Hello there ^_^

I lurked the board for about a few seconds before realizing that I had to Register, and voila, I'm here thanks to the granted admission of the Moderators.

I guess I'm your usual bloke who digs music, anime, manga, movies, some games here and there (though not a lot to be honest, more old school games on NES, SNES, the works). I grew up listening to a lot of Brit Classic Rock, and it sort of progressed to Death/ Black/ Doom/ Viking/ Grind within metal. I goof around on the guitar from time to time, but whatever *has no talent hahaha* >_>'. When it comes to anime or manga, I'm extremely picky and am drawn to depressing series somehow *that's because you're singlesinglesingle, duh, no-brainer*. I came to the US about 3 and a half years ago, and so far so good. NYC is expensive, and I have no savings, but it's something I plan to work on *dicey ...* ... *checks credit card statement in disgust* uhhmm yeah. I work at a law firm here specializing in US Immigration, and want to study a little further than the MBA I have.

Uhhmmm what else what else ... *taps fingers* oh yeah, speaking of Berserk, this being a Berserk forum and all ... I watched the series about 5-6 years ago, and loved it. The whole 'betrayal' between Grif and Guts drew me in to the story a lot more. I then looked for the manga, and began picking them up one by one, slowly, I couldn't afford the shipping, and there'd always be theft with packages in general, like I had to order my set of volumes 9, 10, 11 again because it never got to me! I'm upto to 30 now, and will check if anything more than that is available.

I keep up with One Piece, Claymore, Drifters, Hajime No Ippo, Hunter X Hunter, and a few other series on frequent basis.

Otakon happened for me about 2 years ago for the first time, and in 2 weeks it'll be my 3rd outing there. My friends kid around by calling me pRon (which sounds close to my name) cos I'm their walking-talking guru when it comes to H stuff X'D. Oh well : p ... that's a bit about me.

I haven't read the book :schierke: ... hahaha kinda explains why I prolly liked the movie so much! The movie, as a stand alone, did a good job of portraying a post apocalyptic world with a realistic feel and premise. The acting was good, and I wasn't disappointed by it. It's slow for the general public, but bearable. How different is the story in the book? ^_^

These were pictures taken in December ... and I kinda swap my wall-scrolls around cos I didn't realize I had 15-18 of them already >_>'

I plan to hook up the TV on the wall, around where the Macross one is, if my landlady allows me to.

Short passage to the bedroom, the restroom is to the right.

Damn, I need to invest in a cabinet now *smacks forehead* and book shelves for all the manga. I'll see if I can post a more current picture in a few weeks time, prolly after my Otakon trip.

What he doesn't know ...

I check out metal forums, anime forums a few times a day. I used to get on Facebook too, but I have that on my phone anyway, so it's one less thing. Every Thursday or Friday, I check out the OP manga from here, and yeah, I'm goofing around online as we speak :rakshas:

The guy in the mask could be the father. In the original, I don't think he wore a mask. Thinking back, I guess it makes sense.

The only cool thing is the casting for the two main (kid) characters. That boy was pretty good in The Road.

The remake for Let The Right One In ... called Let Me In ... what the hell!?!! First, the title is lame, then the trailer shows you exactly matching screen shots from the original movie, and it's just disappointing that they had to spend money on making the exact same thing knowing it can't get any better than the original.

Am I the only one here who can't stop watching Natalie's (CommChannel) or Phil's (sxe) videos on YT?

Berserk Merchandise / Re: 1:1 scale replica of Femto Helmet!!!
« on: July 15, 2010, 11:22:05 PM »
Yep, I was ;)

EDIT: Aahhh it's just the Helmet, ok ok cool cool.

I'm likely to say YES to this one, and wait for the color pictures to come up before making a deposit.

Aaah, thanks for clearing that up ^_^. Either way, I wish there were no Season 6! It's turning itself into another South Park.

Thanks, and go for it maan! It's one of the cheaper figures currently available, like really inexpensive compared to the rest :puck:

100 Greatest Movie Insults of All Time

Don't know if I agree, but everyone should see for themselves. :guts:
I watched this last week, absolutely hilarious whenever Arnold came on screen :rakshas:

I admit being late with the whole buying Berserk figures or any figures of the sort, but I guess now was the right time for whatever reasons. I didn't know of Art Of War till fairly recently, and also stumbled on this site as a result of it. So, I picked up my first Berserk figure off another website, and it cost me 30-40$s cheaper just on the figure alone, and another 30-40 on shipping. Was lucky I guess :p

Here're some pictures:

I'm just a little disappointed that I didn't pick this up off Art Of War because of the extra blood coupons, maan, that's a cool concept! But, yeah, the blood on the sword is not exactly red-red, and I wish there were a little more. What would you recommend I do?

I'm awfully curious about this one now, especially after seeing the Berserker helmet, and the Skull Knight face. Quick question - what'll the dimensions be for this one, and will his eyes be narrow + evil or full eyes (like the time he was doing Casca after his rebirth)?

That last picture reminded me of the scene in the manga. EPIC! I feel terrible for missing out on this one. But, I just started collecting figures a few weeks ago :p ... so, in time maybe, in time.

Berserk Merchandise / Re: "Houma" Grunberd Question
« on: July 15, 2010, 02:36:25 PM »
nice pics...but to be honest it is too expensive to buy just the houma on its own...better to get the set of 5 (with the Femto and Ganishka's face)
But, isn't that Sold Out?

I'll be getting my Houma next month.

Oh wow, VERY impressive, and so hard to pass on especially since he's such a favorite character of mine! I'm definitely interested, and shall be able to make payment for it next month.

Quick question - what are the dimensions of this (height, width), and what are the possible payment options you offer?
