Thanks so much, Aaz and Puella! This episode has me so excited.

Isidro is killing me! He has no idea how close he is :ganishka:

They go on to explain that those trees are symbolic representations that exist in different worlds, and that their role is to prevent the world tree's branches to extend to the real world. They do this by absorbing the world tree's power. And by protecting the land, they prevent the balance of the real world and astral world from tipping. They think it's their duty. They tell her that her teacher was also one of those magicians.

Am I understanding this correctly? The forest of spiritual trees aren't actually trees, it's just a phrase that describes the various seals that syphon the World Spiral Tree's power, and these seals are related to the land (the area around and including the tree house mansion?). So the apostles weren't just after Flora, but her "tree" as well (which was assumed based on the info from the previous episode).

Looks like a lot of discussion. I feel like this is going to be a really great episode! Beherits, World Spiral Tree, Falconia. I love Guts' comment on Griffith's ambition.

Oh man, the anticipation is killing me; not quite episode 303 bad, but the things we might learn in this episode...Can't wait!

It always amazes me how applicable the traits of these flowers are. I find it hard to believe they are mere coincidences, especially with some of the previous topics. Regardless of their validity, it's always fun to read through your posts and wonder.

Be still, my beating heart! I mean, I didn't have any doubts that Serpico would be included, but I'm excited to finally see him (and the sylph gear)!

Finally watched the episode; not much to add. I thought this episode was really boring, and I agree that Miura's involvement seems highly questionable. The one thing I really want to say is I hated the quick-draw scene. That was the moment in the manga where I first decided Serpico was going to be a guy to watch out for. The intensity just wasn't there. And maybe that's how it's supposed to be and my experience was unique. It just didn't feel right to me. And having the credits rolling over the scene was horrible and dismissive. I hope the duel on the cliff side is better executed.

Wow! The big 5-0! I hope he has (had) a fantastic day! Happy Birthday, Miura!

I have to say, "Demise of the Ritual" evokes a very specific emotion in me, which I don't think was represented in the video. Much of it just feels like I'm watching muted Berserk clips while I have iTunes playing in the background. In other words, I don't think the music and video play off each other particularly well, despite your best attempts to make it work. That said, the swell and God Hand reveal is very nice and the best part of the video, imo.

7. Please tell me we will get to see the legendary Rape Horse in the next episode.

Yeah, the range in quality of the 2D is something to behold.

Not much to say this time. A lot of my sentiments were covered by Imperator, Aaz, and Walter in the chat, and it seems to be shared by most everyone. Anyway, less egregious than the last, but the wonky animation really ruins it. I actually liked the emotion in the tent scene where Guts tells Farnese that she's as hollow as her idol, but then the animation completely took me out of it.

I also hate all the cuts between 2D and 3D, not because it's jarring, but because it's a constant reminder of what could have been.

Sun's legendary looks a lot cooler, but I'm a big fan of the moon, so I'd definitely be going that route.

I think it's only natural if both things occur. Certain people in Falconia should be able to cast off their "sheep" mentality by the end, recognize their predicament and seize their own destinies. If it's only Guts who delivers that future to them, then I don't think it would be quite as powerful.

Ah yes, that's a good point.

I really don't like Popplio's design, but I've always chosen the water starter ever since Squirtle in Red (though I didn't play White/Black). If I get around to playing Sun/Moon, I'll probably still choose the stupid thing. Besides, it's not like I have to use him, and maybe his later evolutions are better looking.

One could imagine an industrial pseudo-apostle factory in Falconia where "volunteers" would receive "holy power" to better fight for the Falcon.

Very cool notion right there. If/when Guts and Co. return to Midland, we could see the return of the misplaced idea that Guts is the Falcon of Darkness (which would be interesting to see Farnese on the opposite side of where she started!), and the citizens of Falconia might take up arms in such a way for (another) holy war.

That said, I've always imagined the fall of Falconia being due to a more secretive resistance as opposed to another large scale campaign.

Tons of new screenshots

I spy a cannon-arm spin slash :carcus:

I think my unconfirmed "must haves" are Serpico, Isidro, Skull Knight, Grunbeld, Zodd, Irvine, Rakshas, Locus. If we got those along with the confirmed characters, I'd be completely happy. I really wonder how many Falcons they'll include. I honestly didn't expect to see Judo.

But I've got a sick feeling apostles might be saved for bosses only.

There's absolutely nothing appealing here. They need to step up these DLC skins if they want my money (but it's gonna have to be pretty good).

Watched it again with my fiance, who begrudgingly watched the Golden Age trilogy some time ago (it's the only way I can get them to experience Berserk). Thought it would be fun to share a couple comments they made while watching:

The animation looks different. I don't like it.
Everything looks like it's been scribbled on.
Ooh, those trees! I can't wait for Christmas!

Captured the essence of the experience well, I thought. Anyway, looks like I'll be the only one watching in my household from now on despite their initial commitment to following me down this shithole.

If you look carefully, you can spot Caucasian Casca in several frames of the opening.

I didn't even recognize her in the very first shot where the camera pans up and shows the whole group. She's very pale in every single shot.

My notes:

Beginning with the prophesy is pretty cool.
Opening doing a recap of GA is good. We shouldn't have to rehash that arc again anyway.
Isidro? Really? And he's with the Koka dudes??? The fuck is happening right now?
Grunge guitar is facepalm
Bar scene was underwhelming to say the least. Good god. How are you going to skip the iconic dragonslayer slash??
We see Guts prepare a meal...We can now rest easy knowing Guts eats food.
Guts is "possessed by evil spirits", that's weird.
Oh god, the Koka crew is pursuing Guts for revenge?? Why? What is the point of this?
No Jill at the possessed tree, but I'm glad they kept the backstory.
"It was bitten by an evil spirit." Apostles are evil spirits?? Hopefully a bad translation...
Chestnut Puck doesn't look right.
BLOOD AND GUTS AND GUTS AND BLOOD AND BLOOD AND GUTS (There's something slightly nostalgic about this though, I guess. I really do like the theme, but can we try a little harder with the libretto? Please?)
Naked Casca because why not.
Femto looks good
Demon Child looks bad
Good god this swirling camera Dragonslayer reveal. Nope.
So everyone is just kind of done fighting? What?
Canon arm was underwhelming as fuck. Scratch that, possessed tree was underwhelming as fuck. All of it. This was dumb.
Stepping on skulls like crunchy leaves in the fall
Offscreen cannon reload? I don't think he had enough time to do that given what we're shown, but sure, why not.
Oh fuck, it's over.
After credits scene?
Next time on Berserk: Guts already has the beherit, and it's blue!


I mean, I'm committed to watching the whole series, but this isn't good. I'm going to go watch the first episode of the '97 anime to wash my eyeballs out, then read Volume 1 to repair the damage done.

This is so cool! Thanks for sharing it with us! To echo Walter, the addition of the timeline is also really awesome!
