Manga Mausoleum / Re: Volume 40 release

I think seeing her as she opens her eyes, lucid at last, would be amazing.

That. I haven't even thought of that scene but oh yes, that'd be very very fine with me.

I think I said so before, but I'd put my money on Dream-Dog-Guts firing the cannon from its mouth. But I'd much prefer something about Casca. Perhaps revisiting Vol 20's cover, like Miura did between Vol 1-27.

True, I think you did mentionned that a while back. It'd be neat but I still wish for a Casca-esque cover or something related to her healing.

Ok, my turn ! the cover will be on Casca and only her !

I really hope that casca will be on the cover, she deserves it  :slan:

I'd like that too at some point. She deserves it and it's been a while we had her on a cover.

Well I think it's time then to play the guessing game:

Will it be a 6, a 7 or an 8 episode long?

I wish for the latter.

But the real guessing game is this one :

What's the cover gonna be?

Last time I tried it (for volume 38) I miserably failed my prediction.

The cover is gonna be the broken Casca doll. Or maybe an "hommage" to the Eclipse but the dream version (maybe the spiky mountain? Nah)

(I just hope we won't get the classic Guts vs monster or something of the likes)

Six episodes would be really really short. It would only amount to 131 pages of content, versus 172 pages for volume 39 (with 8 episodes). For reference volume 35 had 196 pages of content with 9 episodes, and volume 34 had 216 pages of material with 10 episodes.

I guess seven episodes is doable, but this trend is starting to get annoying. The number of pages can't just keep going down indefinitely. I also don't see why the release date can't just be in November if September is too tight.

I know. 6 episodes would be of course way to short of content I agree. I thought about that because last year they announced volume 39 at the same time as an episode and we wondered at some point if the said episode would be included in the volume and it was not the case.

That's why I was wondering if we would get a 6 or 7 episodes since there would need to have 2 more episodes to make it at least 8.

November would have made more sense in my opinion.

Thank you for the heads up. I do am wondering if we'll get a 6 episodes volume or a 7 episodes.

Manga Mausoleum / Re: Favorite two-page spreads
« on: July 09, 2018, 01:33:22 PM »
Well of course there is one awesome new spread that got out this year and I think a lot of you guys will agree with that one. The spread of the reunion (Guts/Casca Under the tree) in Elfhelm. Cannot post it because I'm at work but it should be fresh in every reader's mind!  :guts:

Hello there! Welcome aboard.

"Dreams can lead to shit." Would be a good one.  :ganishka:

Haha but joke aside I'd the struggle of life in a harsh world. Nchaskew also made a good point with camaraderie.

As for myself, I've been into Berserk since 2003 when dark horse released the first 3 volumes. I had just finished watching the '97 anime and spotted in the credits that it was based on a manga. Being a huge comic/manga fan I've decided to embark on the journey. Found this website once, forgot about it and then found it again and subscribe around 2005. Since then I have read the manga once or twice a year and I've stuck here since then. Which I'm glad because it help me a lot to get a better comprehension of the story.

Just for fun while we wait for news, anobody else wondering if Griffith told Grunbeld before the fight that he's gonna ride on his back to make the end kill badass?  :ganishka:

As much as I like these scenes, I always enjoy thinking about pointless stuff like that. Haha

Yeah! Just got ep356 part 1 in the mail today. The visuals on that format is very nice!

That's why I originally made it. :slan:

Yeah, the cover date is always ahead of the actual release date by one increment.

Good question. I forgot to be honest. I would need to check, but as you can imagine information dating back from that era is hard to come by.

Man, that's an exaustive list! Thx for sharing that Aaz. It's always interesting to me to see the progression.

Just to be sure, the "ominous large shadow in the thicket" Sonia mentioned in the previous release was definitely referring to the Hydra correct? We shouldn't expect some other entity to still be lurking about, right?

I think so..

I think the scale is off in the first two pages. The giants should be roughly the same size as Zodd, but here they look minuscule next to the hydra.

That's because they're teen warriors. They're not fully grown yet.  :ganishka:

That's the best case scenario, then. It means the strange brief pacing of the past two releases will be limited to the episodic experience, not the volume experience. I'm fine with that, particularly if it facilitates more regular releases.  It's just a shame that it comes with a cost of less to discuss each month.

I'm wondering if this is gonna turn into a new kind of standard. Probably not for all the next episodes to come but maybe when one said episode can afford it (like in this case during an action sequence that can be cut in half) to avoid some hyatus? Like Walter said, it could facilitates the releases.

But with a leaping strike! Pretty cool indeed. While this episode was basically just eye candy, I have to say it was premium grade stuff.

For sure! And that amazing panel where we see Griffith coming in the giant's eye reflection. Feast for the eyes.

Someone on Reddit said that this is an addition to Episode 356, that's why it's so short. If it's true, it makes sense, maybe YA editors or Miura himself chop those pieces so we don't get hiatuses.

So technically it is still 356, I think. It's going to be less confusing in the volume.

Could make sense indeed. It would put the episode to a total of  24 pages. And since there is no classic title in one of the pages (and we already knew it was gonna be called Jotunn (2)) but some kind of "previously on" page just at the beginning, could mean the case. Meaning we might get another one in june.

Anyways, back to watching the art because it is incredible as always. (I almost got scared for Zodd)

That was short... but oh so sweet for a fight! Zodd against the hydra was amazing!

Speculation Nation / Re: So i have this theory
« on: April 26, 2018, 06:55:46 PM »
Sure sure. I think we pretty have the same kind of thought about the subject. I was just curious about if they would be allowed to leave (lets say some hear about another safe haven) or not. As in, if they leave, Griffith will have less people Under control. Now don't get me wrong, I know there is a shit load of people in Falconia and it would need to be a semi big outgoing to make him react but I dunno. Maybe an apostle would take it in his own hand to decide that one cannot go.

Very interesting to talk about it though. It was fun!  :guts:

If there was a faction trying to leave the city? Well, thinking on it a bit more, I don't think they would be allowed to leave, but it would probably be dressed up in a way that makes it seem like it is being done for their own safety.

Well there you go, you just answered in your words my question. It was more of a "what do you think" question.

Like you said and like it has been said multiple times on the board, I do not think either that it's the only plan they have of course. But the main part of their unknown plan is that for the moment. Get people in Falconia and have yourself a better control over humanity.

But hey it's still feasable to live outside of Falconia anyway and with the good knowledge (that say, Guts group and the magic users) people would be able to better live outside the walls and have at least a choice where they want to live. I don't know if I express myself clear enough but Aaz did touch what I'm trying to convey in another thread. Being told :" Sure you can leave whenever you want" knowing that you won't last long outside is still being some kind of "no choice anyway" when we know it's not true because there are ways to make it alive outside Falconia.

Remove the knowledge or prevent it from getting to the people they sure won't try to find another option.

but thx for sharing your opinion on the subject.

Ps: I'm pretty sure griffith has something not that nice in mind somehow. He is a demon after all and was explicitely shown that they are after all, evil.  :femto:

Well, as it was pointed already they don't really have a choice anyway. But if for an unkown reason, some people start to put the pièces together and figure out it would be wiser to leave, would they be stopped or not? That was more the question. And I ask that because that's kinda the plan, to get a shitload of people in the only "safe" city.
