I beat Resident Evil over the weekend and started playing Resident Evil 2. I'm loving it so far.

This gives me hope that we'll get Anna and Gennon as DLC.

I recommend you to take the view that these hiatuses are what it takes in order for the story to not just meet our highest expectations, but continually surpass them. Each one of these episodes will forever be a masterpiece. When considered on that scale, the six months it'll take for them to come out shouldn't bother us.

Oh, I do. Don't get me wrong, I'm just bummed that it's going away for a while again. I'd rather wait than have Miura rush anything.

Besides, I've been following Berserk episodically since 2004, so I'm used to breaks in publication. It just means it's time to re-read the series again. :guts:

I can't help but be disappointed, considering where we are in the story, but like Walter said, at least we know when it's coming back. :serpico:

Brilliant. It's good to have you back, sir.

I highly recommend the remastered version.  I'm not 100% sure it's on ps3, but it is essentially the same game, just prettier in every way.

I plan on playing the remastered version eventually, but I want to play the original before I do.

@ Death May Die
Graphics from the 90s have never been a problem for me (after all, I've been playing video games since the 80s); they just add to the flavor. I don't mind the simplified controls, either. It'll be a nice change of pace from the more modern games I've been playing.

I've become bored with Final Fantasy XIII, so I'm venturing on to the Resident Evil series (which I've never played), starting with the first Resident Evil. The PSN only has the Greatest Hits version of the game (which I've heard has a terrible soundtrack), so I purchased a physical copy of the Director's Cut. I just hope it runs well on my PS3.

hi and good morning to everyone.
 I'm Italian, i'm sorry for my bad English .
i have see that there isn't morda , do you think could become an enemy?

Nah, I don't think so. I imagine she'll be accompanying the group to Falconia at some point, but it's hard to know for sure at this point.

the Guts/puk's bejelit in which episode  did it appeared?

It appeared at the end of the first Desire's Guardian Angels episode in volume one.

Ok so for reference the element of weight is called "Barytes" (in Japanese: "バリュテース"). It's from the Greek word "βαρύτης", itself derived from "βαρύς", which means "heavy".

In real life, it's a mineral (commonly called "baryte" or "barite" in English) that is the main source of barium in the world. But more interestingly for us, it used to be a big deal in the alchemical world when it was discovered that a certain type of it can glow in the dark. They used to call them Bologna Stones, because the first one was found near Bologna in Italy. Anyway, this has no direct bearing on Berserk's own world but it's where Miura got the name.

Please note that it is not pronounced like the English word "baryte", as Miura based it on the original Greek word (same thing than for the "Idea" in "Idea of Evil"). To an English speaker, it should sound like "ba-ree-tess".

Thanks for the explanation, Aaz!

So after much brow-furrowing (just like the Puck family), it is hereby decreed that the most accurate title for the Elf Queen is: Sovereign of the Flower Storm.
It's a mouthful, I know, but it's what best conveys the proper meaning of it.

I like it. :guts:

I couldn't help but notice the parallels between Misty Valley and Elfhelm, and the Sovereign of the Flower Storm and Rochine, either. Miura is great at that sort of thing. I hadn't thought about a parallel between Griffith and the Sovereign of the Flower Storm, though. That's an interesting idea.

I finished reading The Walking Dead: Compendium Three, read Summer of Night and am in the middle of reading Children of the Night. It's been tough getting through it, though, because I'm in the middle of writing a novel myself. Every time I sit down to read, I feel guilty about not writing. :void:

What an episode! I can't wait to see the pages close-up when I get home from work (right now I'm looking at them on my phone). It's this type of episode that keeps me in awe of Miura's genius. The art is incredible, and so is the storytelling.

I love that Danan turned out to be the Queen/Sovereign/Ruler of the Flower Storm. Her design is incredible and I love that her reveal was tied to the conclusion of Puck and Magnifico's scheme. (I love that Guts is the only one who doesn't react when Puck assumes the throne. He's been with him on the road too long to be fooled by his antics. :guts:)

After reading this and the Episode 2 thread, I'm even more glad that I gave up after the first episode.

If he's not on the cover, I guarantee there'll be a poster of him.

Well, I nailed that prediction. :troll:

I've talked about it before, so maybe you're thinking of that? Anyway I think it would be more interesting than a repeat of what happened at Flora's place. A supernatural attack might also befit the place itself more than monsters ready for slaughter, what with it being the Elf capital, plus being populated by magic users.

Maybe. I think it would be more interesting, too. My wife and I were discussing this scenario the other day, and we thought it would be cool having Ubik and/or Conrad show up, but what if Miura pulls something even more unexpected out of his hat: Void?

That's not a supposition, Ged says so in the episode. It's basically what Flora had told Schierke in volume 27 "I'll see you in your dreams." Maybe we'll finally get to see that. :ubik:

Gotcha. My bad. I hope so. That would be pretty sweet. :guts:

For some reason, I feel like a member of the God Hand is going to show up on the island at some point. I'm hoping it's Conrad, since we haven't seen as much of him as the others. I just can't see a bunch of apostles, Sonia and Mule arriving by boat or on the backs of flying apostles. Who knows what we're in for, though?

This was a very exciting episode for me. Since they set off for Elfhelm, I've been thinking about the new characters we'd meet. I'm looking forward to getting to know Kukka, Tune, Yoni, Molda and Ged better, and seeing even more characters join the cast.

In the podcast, it was supposed that Flora spoke to Ged from the astral world. If that's the case, I wonder if Schierke will be reunited with Flora through some form of astral communication in the next few episodes.

I think all of us are betting on seeing the Skull Knight at some point, too, but I have a feeling we may end up meeting him and the King of the Flower Storm at the same time. I have this image in my head of the king's reveal, with SK standing behind him and off to the side, as if they had been conversing before the group entered. :void:

Nice job! It's hard to believe Schierke has only been around since 2001. Feels like she's been a part of the series forever. This whole thing makes me feel old. :void:

It's your attitude that people don't like, not your opinions. You are where you are because of you, no one else. Take responsibility for your actions, instead of blaming everyone else.

And by the way, you don't make a very good case for yourself by insulting people, especially when those immature comments are shitty generalizations about another country and/or culture. Grow the fuck up.

Rochine and Jill's names are conspicuously absent from the cast list, and the only thing in the PV from Lost Children is the possessed tree, so I think it's safe to say it's being skipped, which is extremely disappointing. I can't stand the animation style, either. How hard is it to get an anime adaptation of Berserk right?

I liked your discussion about the plot and how some people believe that Berserk has been all about getting Casca to Elfhelm for the past decade and more. I've never understood that rationale. It's certainly the goal of Guts and his group, but the plot of anything (and Berserk is no exception) is about more than the individual characters' goals within the story.
