I was finally able to purchase the guidebook! Now I just have to wait ~2 weeks to look at it, very excited  :ubik:

To anyone who hasn't purchased it yet but wants to; the site says there are only 20 copies left in stock, so get it now while you can!

Thanks for the update N7! I'll have to do that right now

I'm trying to like all this new Berserk stuff, but everything associated with the 2016 anime just seems to suck/be underwhelming.

I think most people who read the manga would agree with you. The face of this man accurately portrays me whenever I view any new official (non-Miura) Berserk anime art. I try to be happy, but it's just not the same.

Yeah, even the poses are pretty uninspired.

I'm hoping that they at least uncensor it and remove the credits from the end scenes of ep 3 and 12.  Maybe with some luck, they'll go back and polish a little bit and fix some of the awful sound effects early on in the series. Maybe even the music. But that feels like wasted hope.

Still not worth $200

Here are the other 3 out of 4 bonus posters included with the purchasing of Volume 2 (all unimpressive except the last, and even that one feels a bit off):

Yea, I am just getting a feeling that she might be brought up for some reason.

It wouldn't be for any significant reason. As Aaz had stated, if she were brought up, it would be of no substantial importance or provide any key progress to the story. Either Puck or Guts could relate something-or-rather to Rosine, but that idea will soon fade because of how crucial Casca's story is as of now.

Any other black cat lovers?

Royal Phantom Blue or Spring Bloom Pink? I think Blue plays up her royalty and position, but Pink works with the cherry blossom motif. What do you guys prefer?

Definitely would go for pink. But I think you had an opportunity for a nice green color for her. Maybe a pink and green mix :guts:

Heineken. Never really buy this beer, the flavor isn't my type. Tastes too much like American beer. Just bought it on the spot because it was the start of my weekend :serpico:

Whenever I listen to Hero by Machinae Supremacy I always think about Guts.

Completely off the wall theory, but maybe the beast has grown into some sort of memetic creature that bleeds into other subconscious. It sort of works with Dananís offhand comment about the connection between dreams and the spirit world. But personally I'm not feeling it.

I doubt something like that could possibly be happening. If it were true, I'd feel Schierke would be the one most vulnerable to the Beast of Darkness since she's been the one restraining Guts' fierce and wild emotions using her astral body.

Images of Guts and his assault on her are likely going to be present in Casca's dreams, as are the Eclipse and her rape at Femto's hands. In her current state, she probably can't even differentiate between the two. And if that's the case, then Schierke and Farnese, the two people who arguably have the most respect and admiration for Guts, may see him perform his most depraved act yet, which so far, only he and Casca know about. As if the process of curing Casca won't be painful enough. :judo:

Great examples, and I do see what's being said here. But I don't think the Beast will actually be revealed at all in Casca's dreams, unless it somehow manifests because of Schierke's previous dealings with :beast:. Since this will be in Casca's deep suppressed thoughts and memories, I feel the main focal point of her thoughts will be of the Eclipse, since this event was the direct cause of her mental condition now.

Casca has always shown to be afraid of Guts immediately after he wakes up from the Eclipse. I don't know if it's been fully explained as to why she showed this much animosity towards him from the start, even before his consumed hatred took control of him to take aggression/frustration out on her.

It might show Guts as an evil dark shadow (maybe beast-like creature) attacking her, but I believe with Schierke's previous experience with Guts' uncontrollable frenzies, and her knowledge of who Guts actually is, she should be able to comprehend and understand how the Eclipse permanently ended up scarring both Casca and Guts' psychological state of mind. As for Farnese, I don't know how well she will handle what she sees.

It will be a traumatic experience for both Schierke and Farnese, but not enough I think to lose any respect for Guts. They might just end up despising Griffith as much as Guts. They will understand why Guts has been so inclusive towards his past.

Regarding the ominous last page, it's obvious what it represents, but I wonder if the rift in the clouds is meant to convey the Beast of Darkness?

Yes, most definitely a combo of the eclipse and BoD.

You're looking into the last page too much. It's in no way the Beast of Darkness, since it only relates to Guts himself. The Beast of Darkness is used to symbolize Guts' revenge, deepest sorrows, and the immense hatred.

It has no purpose in Casca's dream whatsoever.

This new (Sept. 21st, 2016) Berserk fan animation is rather amusing and hilarious :ganishka:

Welcome to BERSERK:

I somehow feel this is supposed to be a play on Berserk 2016.

Beautiful artwork on that guidebook. Seeing everyone together in one colored photo is pure awesome :badbone:

327's spoilers are looking great. I cannot wait to see what's in store for :casca:

Thanks for these pictures! :badbone: :isidro:

Love seeing those tigers. Didn't expect to see them at all.

According to it, it seems to be possible to team up with your best "ally" (or enemy) in order to slay thousands of enemies.

I hope the stages have an infinite amount of time, but the enemies become exponentially harder as your kill count increases and your rewards are of higher quality until you end up dying.

Keep in mind all Musou games have a Free Mode where you can swap characters in different scenarios, it could also be that.

Playing as Femto is ridiculous in the good way.  :femto: Silly sure, but sounds fun.

Well we already know Guts and Zodd make the perfect team. Maybe Guts and Femto can put their differences aside to kill the army of trolls threatening local villages  :ganishka:

Anime Asylum / Re: 2016 Berserk TV series: Episode 12

By the third episode this had plummeted through the realms of bad adaption and just became bad story. Was there anything this show got right? The pacing was atrocious, the character's butchered and every single scene was dulled by completely soulless animation.

I'd say what made me somewhat happy was Isidro and Puck's screen time together. Their voice actors did a great job and together they made a great pair to get a laugh or smile out of me.

But yes, other than that it was a rather disappointing journey.

I don't mind this upcoming hiatus. He's given so much these past few months that have exceeded what I thought would happen during this period in time. He was very straight to the point.

I'm happy enough that 347 is coming and could reveal game-changing information for us. This hiatus will give us plenty of time to discuss and theorize, until which I'm sure will be even more amazing plot changing episodes to come soon after.

Berserk 2017 better do well to fill in my Berserk gap. I haven't lost too much hope in it yet. Plus the musou game will be out that time too :guts:

I needed something to listen to before my work opens tomorrow morning! Thanks guys, can't wait to listen to what I'm sure will be humorous and filled with anger and cringe-worthy moments from the anime.

Vinland Saga is not dark fantasy, its historical fiction
I'll have to take back what I said and agree with you on that one. I suppose just Claymore and Attack on Titan (slightly) would fit the dark fantasy genre out of the ones listed. :farnese:

the western market is much more saturated when it comes to fantasy in general.
I guess my main point is just because the West has a larger audience in the fantasy scene and a higher budget towards their films, doesn't mean it would do a Japanese anime/manga franchise justice (Dragonball Evolution).

Japan already has the right tools they need and have a strong potential for a proper Berserk anime. Unfortunately their execution and planning need more direction that can keep the fan base happy, while also accomplishing fluid animations, story, and music that doesn't seem to jump from scene-to-scene, leaving most people confused and asking themselves, "What were they trying to do here?"

Dark Fantasy is hardly a Japanese genre.

Attack on Titan, Hellsing, Claymore, Vinland Saga. These are just the most well known, but there are plenty of others.

America should honestly work on their own shows and not worry about Berserk, especially a live action adaptation :magni:

Let's not forget about Dragonball Evolution.

An American adaptation would frankly be of higher interest to me than another Japanese one.

Why would an American made Berserk adaptation be of higher interest to you?
