I dont think you had to swing below the belt like you did to make your point... But Ill go along with it.

I, personally like Griffith's character because of his desire to obtain his dream. Thats pretty much it. I'm not a large fan of the "dude looks like a lady" thing, but it doesn't get in the way of me being intrigued by him.

I think the Supah Guts Elf-Man theory has you beat still.  ;)

Nope. The "Race of Fish People" is the most inane to date, and Paradiselost has copyrights on that one.

SO FAR, carrots eating the death-defying leaps of civilized businessmen doesn’t have any special meaning.  It could most certainly be revealed as otherwise later.


Wow...it works! You should patent that thing Wereallmad.

Pretty basic idea. Its based on the whole 'origin' of religion. A religion or the GOD of a religion is given power through prayer, faith, and belief. So in the Berserk world, negative emotions outweight positive emotions (which if you ask me, is true in ANY universe, but...) This could have been why the elves 'left'. As for the origins? Ill agree (for now) with the whole 'elves came from humans positive hopes and dreams' idea. It makes sense and stays true to the basic flow of 'religious powers'.

Griffis sold his soul, it's that simple. he is DEAD, and it 's only matter of time and maturity wheter you accept it.

....fucking 'dot dot dot'.

All the taka no dan was just a bunch of object to good ol griffy. Painful but true. I wish it was otherwise, but being charismathic as he is, we all tend to have a glorious picture of him. :-/

Actually it wasnt that painful :-/ I had so much respect for Griffith built up over the series that the Hawks sacrifice made sense to me. Once again, we are debating the morals of Griffith (which has been done once before....in a post that lasted 200+ comments) which is not a very wise thing to do. You are also contrasting Griffiths actions with some wacked out Judeo-Christian belief system. You must realize that the only TRUTH in Berserk is the chasing of ones dream.

PS: I acknowledge that Griffith is the antagonist in Berserk. that is ALL.

So his life was the dream, but part of the dream were the hawks too. He even got nailed in the #%$ by an old man just to save members of his band.

No, he 'nailed' the old man so that they would have a war chest so that they could become something more of an army than a militia. The more money you have, the more soldiers you have, the more recognized you get by the royal family. Thus, Griffith would be closer to his dream.

Quote

As griffis said Guts was the only one to make him forget the dream, but in the end he fucks him off anyway

??? Griffith fogetting his dream is a BAD thing. Whats this 'in the end he fucks him' thing relating to griffith forgetting his dream? Now Im really confused. Guts made Griffith lose sight of his dream, and indirectly caused his downfall.


Quote

Point is, griffis surrendered in end to the dark side, and became darh femth. :)
he could have had the dream without god hand too...eer..somehow

Not only did GOd Hand tell him that he would fall like those bodies in his path if he chose to not accept their offer, but his own body was just rags and toothpicks by that time thanks to the torture. There was no other way, and it turned out to be the best way. If you ask me, Griffith got a sweet deal. Look where he is now.  ;)

Kinda of a weakling, surrendering to the dream an all. I repeat, as man he wa the greatest leader and most self sacrificing person in the series.


Surrendering to the dream? His whole life was to obtain his dream.

Quote

And it really is Guts, not GUTS. I mean ppl, what is this?


This is a really old debate, and it really does come down to Guts in the end. Pronounce Guts....what does it SOUND like its supposed to mean?

Damned america...Teaches us to sniff for gays.

My first impressions of Griffith (waaaaay back in the day) were that he was an apostle. At the time I obviously knew shit about the story, and since both the snake-apostle in episode 1 and Griffith had a Beherit, I assumed for a long time that that was the special 'something' about him. His eyes, his 'sword' that Guts goes on about in episode 3: "hes turning away all my attacks with that slender sword...how?!" But then Zodd dispelled my thoughts with his foreshadowing speech about Griffiths future. Griffith's ambition for his dream and destiny for glory easily made him my favorite character until we met Skull Knight in volume 9. And even still, Griff is a close second place on my favorites list.

Guts? I actually hated Guts until around episode 9 or 10. He seemed so architypical of a war-drama character. Especially that name...GUTS. when we first hear it, when Griff asks him his name... "GUTS" (pronounce it GEEEYUUUTTTSSS with a strong southern accent like me and Cronus do for laughs arond the house) I literally groaned. But Guts has very much grown on me, and hes probably favorite character # 3, or 4.

Casca? Thppttttttt.....I didnt give a rats ass about her first, and I still dont really care about her.

First time I saw God Hand, I wet my pants (when we REALLY first see them in volume 12). Same with Skully. And that opinion has stayed with me.

 Before the stories end I think Griffith will have an epiphany like Guts did when he met the Hawks again after he left for a year.  He'll realize what he had and what he did he did to his friends for his dream and that will probably break him.  This super rush of guilt will allow Guts to finally slay him.  

Wow, Im sorry but thats the worst ending prediction I've EVER heard... EVER.

Griffith already realizes what he's done, he felt guilt over it for about 10 seconds during the eclipse. He wasn't reluctant to sacrifice them because he realized beforehand, he had already brought them into a shithole of an existence by having them follow his dream.

Griffith is in charge of his motives, Guts just flails about randomly.

And so, to one-up that ending predicton:

Griffith gets caught cross-dressing in a sleazy bar in downtown Midland, in front of the whole country, and everyone laughs, but then Guts swings down from a rope with a huge grin on his face, and a knife in his teeth, pirate style. Then, Griffith screams out all feminine: AIIIIIEEEEEEEEEE as Guts smashes Griffiths head in two. As Griffith's head is splitting in two, he tells Guts:

"Im sorry I killed our dudes, and raped your dudette. I suck."

"Thats right, you suck." Then Guts shits on Griffiths head and laughs like a madman.

Don't blame me for this crap, blame where I got the inspiration for writing it: FAN PREDICTIONS. I just mashed them all into one.

This is what people want for the ending of Berserk...right?

I think everyone is forgetting that Griffith is very likely a CLOSET HOMOSEXUAL.  Sure he banged Charlotte, but I think he'd rather be turned into Guts's bitch... or the other way around.

How could I forget that shallow opinion? I dont know how it slipped my mind...  :-X

But you see,I'm not entirely sure about all that.There's a
Deus ex machina in that story and that's this fellow they
call Guts.The law of causality surely holds a few surprises...

Cool thoughts but... wouldnt Guts be the complete opposite of a Deus ex Machina?

« on: August 10, 2002, 03:27:51 PM »

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Mule joined Griffith by means of pure awe. I think he will be ferociously loyal to Griffith. Ofcourse, Griffith is only using Mule's high Midland rank status. As for his future, I seriously think it'll end if and when he gets in Guts' path.

But a relationship initiated by a means so fluid as 'awe' can be broken just as easily. I think the reason Mule is taking a focus now, is because he'll be the FIRST to turn on Griffith. If anything, Mule would side with Guts. Mule didn't exactly take too kindly to an army full of monsters.

He's also young, and along with Isidro this pushes me to think that Miura has a '10 years later' plot lapse in mind for the future.

She really is pretty disgusting, but I don't think its very fair to say that. Miura draws her in a way that you can see where she might have been pretty once, when she was much younger, if only for a while. That's evident (to me anyway) in this first picture:

Then again... I guess she really is rather gross... :

Why?

Associating the term "gay" in a negative way, and the use of "fag" both infer a negative connotation with homosexuals. Hence, those who use them are homophobes. Viola.

Actually that Peruvian kid's special power was loving animals... HARD. Cheetahs and Orangutangs would totally rip their clothes off for the 12 year old little boy, and because of it, he was able to get access to sleazier parts of the world way before that Russian slut could even come close to selling her body for information.

Have you guys completely been blind to the development of Farnese's character? She has COMPLETELY changed. I like her a lot. Just because she's not the best fighter doesnt really make much of a good goddamn. If you berate a character based on their fighting ability... why are you reading Berserk? There are several other series with completely typical characters that are complete badasses. May I suggest Bastard, Slayers, Dragonball. Shall I go on?
