Yeah, I saw the trailer for it when I went to see Dead Man's Chest on Tuesday. Though I'm naturally a bit skeptical, I can't help but feel like this is going to be a good movie. But, of course, it's impossible to make any kind of determination now, so it's fun just so see the details of the film as they roll in. :serpico:

Well, i have two friends that are Persian if that counts  :troll:

Unfortunatley they moved back to Bahrain this summer, so i cannot see them anymore.
That's sad to hear, I have a friend who moved away recently as well, so I understand how that feels to a degree. :judo:
But Persian by association is a good start! Everybody's a little Persian on the inside, you know. :troll:

How about Hebrew?
Because Guts's got chutzpa! :guts:

But for some strange reason, that made me think about Fiddler on the Roof: Berserk style. I can see it now, a line of Daka partaking in some Russian folkdancing. :serpico:

Something as epic as Berserk would surely require lots of international collaboration, I think. It would be hard to have it in Japanese as a live action film (although I would probably prefer it that way, given the choice) because of the broad range of racial characteristics amongst the cast.

But, bah... who am I kidding? Berserk could never fit within the limits of even a 3 hour movie (if it were to not suck dirt, that is). I'd wish they'd start from scratch with the anime like they're doing with Hellsing, instead. But that's a whole different conversation. :puck:

I saw it last night, and I enjoyed it. I have to admit, I didn't have very high standards when I walked in. ^^; I'm looking forward to the (hopefully) final film in the series, though.

Johnny Depp was probably the most entertaining aspect of the whole movie (other than the swordfighting sequences), because Orlando Bloom was a bit too stiff and... well, basically everything else acting-wise was forgettable. :<

Oh wow! So great! Can you speak Persian?
Oh my! a half Persian Berserk fan, :isidro: tiihii!
I'm afraid I don't know how to speak much Farsi (Other than my mom's favorite curse words, of course :carcus:), but I am planning on learning some time in the future, I hope. What about you?

And yes, us half-Persian Berserk fans sure are few and far between, but we are just as enthusiastic as any! :serpico:

Wow, that's freaking hardcore. :SK: You can definitely tell Chris Cunningham directed that, heh. I still have to say that I like what he did with that Madonna song a tad better, but that one was a longer video, so I suppose it isn't fair to compare them too closely.

He accepts fan mail via Hakusensha and Young Animal.
Ah, of course! I forgot about that alternative method, there. I wonder if he'll get a lot of presents from fans. :isidro:

Happy Birthday Miura!  :miura:
I'm more interested with how you got his address!
I concur. From what I understand, Mr. Miura would be awfully secretive about that stuff, considering he didn't want people to see him in that DVD interview. :x

But I don't know what I'd get him for his birthday. A juicemaker, maybe? :troll: Or perhaps one of those spiffy Berserk watches from Art of War!

He's Naked Snake, AKA... BIG BOSS.

Is that so? Hm.. well, that sure narrows things down, thank you. Maybe I should actually play the games, I'm tired of getting lost when people make Metal Gear references that I don't understand. :judo: Shame on me!

Haha, of course! The idea never crossed my mind Griffith, but your... re-alteration is very funny. XD I haven't much experience with that game series though, so I'm afraid that I don't recognize who Zodd is supposed to be. I guess I'll have to do a little research. :carcus:

uh.. they could have at least gone to the local african american beauty supplies shop and got a cheap wig...
I doubt that, since they don't seem to be in America. :void:

But that manga page is really cool, Aaz. I never realized how cool Guts looks in a cheesy bandana.

I'm in a suburb south of San Francisco, where I've lived my whole life. I'm not really big on sunny weather, but the climate here in California's pretty pleasant overall.

And Pinhead_Larry, that's interesting that you're half Persian, so am I. :guts: But my other half is English, which is where our racial similarity differs, heh.

Samurai Champloo's great. I like the dynamic relationships between the three main characters. Comparing it to Berserk, it's pretty light, but it's far from the stereotypical stuff I'm used to seeing. :SK:

Wow, that's pretty awesome. I would want to do a design like that, if only my class weren't a) the Broncos... -_- or b) made up completely of girls. Typically, girls don't go for the armored warrior look for a class mascot. :judo:

Movies, TV, Books & Music / Re: What are you reading?
« on: April 25, 2006, 03:37:21 AM »
In my brief moments of leisure, I try to read the first book in Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast series, called Titus Groan. It's pretty bizarre with loads of imagery, and I would reccommend it to anyone who's looking for something really out of the ordinary.

Otherwise, I've had to read Beloved for my English class. Talk about trippy. :puck:

Yeah, Susumu Hirasawa's music is surprisingly fitting for many parts of the Berserk Manga. Forces is, needless to say, a big favorite for me to listen to while reading. It sets the atmosphere pretty well, if I do say so myself. Has anyone read the lyrics for it? Great stuff. I'm big fan of Sign and Sign 2, also. :serpico:

Wow. Just... wow. Now I know why one of my good friends is so obsessed with it. XD

Shootin' the Breeze / Re: Fans of other anime/mangas?
« on: March 15, 2006, 11:20:29 PM »
As for anime, I liked Paranoia Agent back when it aired on Adult Swim. It was probably one of the strangest things I've ever seen, and I definitely reccomend it. Same with Serial Experiments Lain. As for other manga, I haven't found anything nearly as good as Berserk. :miura: I really enjoy one called Immortal Rain, though. Has anyone else heard of it?

That's awesome! If only I could insult people for a living. That guy's got some great material, though. I'll never look at Alex Trebek the same way ever again, that's for sure.

I've actually had two dreams that relate to Berserk. XP I had the first one a couple weeks ago, where the Eclipse happened to take place in my school's computer lab. o.O; I don't remember a whole lot of that part, other than the fact that I was scared out of my wits. :judo: But the next part of that dream involved Guts later on, and he was living in a treehouse with Puck. For some reason, a big army surrounded the little treehouse. That's where I woke up.

The next dream was a bit cooler than the first one. I remember there being this underground passage where there were giant or ogre-like demons walking around with these giant clubs, and I was trying to get out. I then noticed someone that looked like Guts holding a tremendous sword (not the Dragonslayer, but much larger), and swung it at the demons. And that's where I woke up that time.

Needless to say, I think I need to lay off all that soda before bed. :isidro:

I was expecting it to be a bit longer with all that time it took to load. o.O; Oh well, it was funny anyway. :guts:

Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: Saddest moment in Berserk
« on: February 11, 2006, 04:39:39 AM »
Unfortunately, I haven't really read past Volume 11 (I've only been able to go with the Dark Horse releases and the translation of Volume 11), but the saddest moment from what I've actually read had to be when the Hawks find Griffith in the dungeon. I mean, this has been stated before, but taking a previous volume and comparing it to this particular scene is quite disheartening. Even so, it was mostly his body that was terribly disturbing. While his face was covered by the mask for the most part, its outline seemed relatively plump and healthy :griff: (But that's an opinion for another thread).

Coming in close second is a related scene, with Guts' one-on-one conversation with Griffith in the carriage in Volume 11. I just thought it was sad when Griffith tried to pick up the sword, but wasn't able to due to the results of his torture.
