Hard Hero pretty much tapped that license I think.  Our license only entails reproductions of the comic art style.  Honestly we don't want to make cartoon style given how much is out there. 

Seems like everyone loves it or hates it.  Enough love it though that we are making some loot  :)

Speaking of which if anyone wants to trade me Berserk merchandise for Trans, Alien or Predator Artist proofs (or anything else we make) feel free to hit me up with a PM  8)


Heheh, yeah, and you have the license to make Transformer statues that look like Pat Lee crapped them, while Hard Hero has the license to make Transformer statues that look like the cartoon...  It's a damn shame really, your Transformer statue sculpts are top-notch and technically excellent, but I just can't stand the style at all.  Is Hard Hero all the way out of business yet?  Can you guys make un-pat-lee statues now?   :D

I'm assuming there's no confilct between Banpresto and AOW's licenses, though I don't know where the line is either.

O good I don't have to see the movie now >:(


Even in a "Good" ending, Guts will die.  It's not written in stone, but because of how the story is and how Guts is, he has to die in the end.  Have any of you read Sin City (or heck seen the movie that just came out?)

In the Story Arc "That Yellow Bastard" Hartigan kills himself in the end to ensure the safety of a girl he fell in love with, because even though he won the battle (a huge battle) the man in power would still have won the war if Hartigan were still alive to defeat.

Well I work for an American toy company (www.palisadestoys.com) and based on my experience a company must acquire a license to produce a certain product and no other company may produce a product that infringes on that license.

For example.  My company has the license to produce resin statues from Alien and Predator up to a certain size.  We also have the license to distribute these statues in the U.S. and other countries.  So legally no one in say Japan could mass produce resin Alien statues in our size range  and sell them.  At the same time another company has the license to produce action figures from Aliens because it is not a part of our contract.  It gets more complicated the Alien license is litterally split up 30-something ways in Japan.

Anyway I had always assumed that Art Of War had the Berserk license for statues, action figures, mini figures and Jewelry.  While other companies had things like keychains and block figures.  The Banpresto PVC statue just made me curios.

... *refreshing memory* yup, the YA episode 252 mentioned 20 million sold books total... and that's before vol 28, unless they included pre-orders.

Is that 20 million the volumes or issues of Young Animal?

First of all hello everybody.  Longtime Lurker and Berserk collector here.  I've got an art-of-war collection that I am pretty proud of.  (Till I saw DirectDK's page that is)

Anyway I wanted to see if anyone knew exactly what Banpresto's license entails.  I know they've made a PVC statue and a few keychain sets.  The PVC is what really confuses me since it would seem that it infringes on Art of War's license.
