Griffith won't listen to a warning from anyone he is to obsessed with getting his own kingdom and I think the same thing that happened to Gaiseric will happen to him. His kingdom will fall

Its my belief that Void was the one who destroyed Gaiseric's empire with his sacrifice (he loved all the citizens, he cared for their 'suffering' and so he granted them death, what a great guy) of cource, this is theory, but if thats the case, then if the 2 paths (Griff + Gai's) are to mirror each other, then whos to be the next "void"? Will there be one? Well, not for another 216 years according to the math side of causality.

...and he will have to destroy idea in order to end the cycle.

Well....thats nice and clean in THEORY, but whats he going to do? Grab a rocket launcher and fire away? Idea has to be CHANGED, or dramatically influenced by the entire world in order to dissapear. It wont go down with physical force.

However, I doubt that the series will move 6 years....the relevant characters will age quite abit by then....

The characters have already aged quite a bit since the beginning of the series. Why stop now? I think Berserk will chronologically go at least 20-30 more years (or maybe even 216?  ;) ) We need to see the full spectrum of development for Griffith and Guts. Of cource, this is mere sepculation.

As for the simularities between Ubik and Sland and Foss and Charlotte, I could see Foss and Ubik... but Charlotte?

Hey! She was a girl!...I was young and foolish!!

Though I already found something about about Conrad at least... He's Foss turned into a godhand and sent back in time from the future to kill Sara Conner, Guts's mom.

Actually, I know this makes me look like a complete jackass (but, hey, were all family here right?) but way back in the day when I was starting to watch the series, and i first saw Foss and Charlotte, I slow-motioned the first episodes God Hand scene and could have SWORN that Charlotte was Slan, and Foss was Ubik.

**prepares for the assault**

PS: oh yeah, and then I bought the manga. Problem/theory solved.

The millenium Falcon ranking problem will be fixed. Its not just Griffs title that gets 'absorbed' by other posters but also Cronus title, and a few others. its a CGI bug and Ill take care of it this weekend.

And about Mangykid. I deleted him because he changed his image/avatar to the infamous "goatsex" picture. If you dont know what Im talking about then THANK GOD.

Also, what does it take to get cencored? Well in this case, a picture of a mans 'rectal inner workings'. Nothing absurdly gross and disturbing, otherwise NOTHING.

Heres  alittle somethign I found a LONG time ago (october 2000 I think.) I just re-discovered it on my Hard Drive.


Its  a spear from somewhere around the roman era (i think? I forgot...) it highly resembels the armor and weaponry used during Gaiserics time (from the small glimpse we get) and Zodd's armor. Im not speculating anything, i just thought it was a neat little parallel. Thats all.

Well, actually Soul Edge is pretty damn old (older than berserk?), and Siegfried had that giant sword in that...Duke had a pretty big sword in Battle Arena Toshinden (very old) as well...so it's probably just a coincidence that Siegfried's sword resembles the Dragonslayer

....Soul Edge older than Berserk? Oh, come on Mage. We've all heard this argument before: "Guts is a rip off of that guy in insert game title with a hero that wields a big sword because game title came out before Berserk."

Berserk game out in 1989. Soul Edge came out in 1996

Anyone seen the 2p costume of cervantes in soul calibur...same helm as griffy, and siegfried wields the dragonsalyer, really cool

Whoa....thats pretty cool. Now that I think about it, there are some parallels one could draw between Griff and Sieg. SIeg has always intriguied me as a character (as far as fighting game characters can)

Getting a lil bit off topic here guys....

Lets keep this on weapons, unless you want to start a topic called 'Nature of Violence'.

-why the hell do they still use castles when canons made them obsolete? (at least in our time)

Well...We only see cannons twice in Berserk as I can remember:

1) towards the beginning in volume 5, they appear very briefly (and almost NEVER again....) and...

2)  in one of the current chapters (184) we see the Kushan's use them. As far as why they still use castles...Well, they're only obsolete once they allow someone to actually get CLOSE enough to use them, if you know what I mean.

me likes weapons, but not violence...wait, then why the hell do i like berserk so much? must be all the naked women ;D

I wouldnt say im NOT a fan of violence, but I do think that the fights get in the way of Berserk sometimes (i said sometimes) Perfect example: Mozgus (or in more literal terms, VOLUME 21)   ................. We were all waiting for Griffith to get reborn, and we had to sit through like 12 chapters of this jackass fighting Guts. FUCKING annoying.

If i were to give a single reason for following Berserk as devoutly as I do, Id say depth.

And did Miura study deeply the history of medieval Europe?
I believe so. I think he even visited these places. Some towns in the manga look just like the old towns around my place.
Shoot...

He has said many times in interviews that he studies and is highly interested in the architecture and style involved in the Victorian, Renaissance, and Dark Ages. Curiously, when he started the series he was intending to have it take place during a "Joan of Arc" timeframe, but slowly leaned towards something less modern. Yet in my opinion, the architecture as well as the weaponry in Berserk is basically just an amalgamation of Miura's interests.

Miura was just in Europe on "vacation" in-between the chapters of 176-179. Its no coincidence that this picture( http://www.skullknight.net/manga/04.jpg ) is absurdly like the forestry seen in parts of Europe.

PS - sorry...i just realized you were specifically asking for information about WEAPONS only. I guess I kind of went on a tangent. My apologies, but the information above IS still valid, its just not specifically about weapons.

PS-walter, you better start playing more videogames. i mean, look at all the new crap coming out. 2 new systems out in the same week! we haven't seen this much goodness since 16 bit!


But none of the games coming out are good. I havent played a really good console game in like....well, actually Id have to say since Xenogears. That was back in '98. Since then its been pooppooppoop from both square and 'the rest' of the companies.

Nothing at all on the horizon except for MGS2.

And I currently LIVE with Walter.  I guess that's worth a mention.  He gets to bitch at me *personally* when I haven't finished translation of a chapter!   :P


I also get to bitch at him about cleaning dishes  :o Also, I believe the correct term is..MULTIPLE chapters

Well by far Berserk is my largest hobby. But that aside I have a few others. I am getting less and less involved in the Video Game community. I used to be hardcore about it, but now...less so. I write very often, as I am an aspiring author. I have college so I guess that counts as a hobby?

I am an avid Movie freak. I obcess over movies like none other. My current obcessions are Berserk episode 24-25 (sorry...I cant help it), Memento, Shawshank Redemption, Boogie Nights and the Matrix. I do extensive research on the backgrounds of things I enjoy and love getting small details about movies, or the screenwriters thoughts. And believe it or not...Im not an anime fan. I just like Berserk.

Writing HTML is fun, though my skills are absurdly limited to basic code and some CSS (as evident on this site)

Badminton. Yeah! Badminton is my favorite sport, though I can also play Basketball, and Frisbee with the best of 'em... I havent played badminton in months but I intend to for the first time in a while this weekend against this blatant badass, who beat the pants off of me last time we matched. Wish me luck.
