:-/ What’s so graphic? I accidentally ripped the page and when I tried to glue it back together it got stuck to the adjoining page.  Pissed me off. >:(


P.S. By the way, I ripped the page while masturbating to Slan in case you were wondering. ;D

No, No, from volume 12, that’s where you can really see the difference!  I can’t compare anymore cause those particular pages in my volume 12 got stuck together somehow? :-/

I think I’ve said too much… ;D

Oh yes, I’ve patiently waited for this moment a long time, I’ve finally found the perfect segue to discuss the size differential between Slan’s breasts in anime and her breasts in the manga!

It is not Femto.  Femto is an ethereal being, a demon who does not exist in any physical realm.  You simplify the reborn Griffith too much by saying he’s simply Femto on earth.  It is much more complicated then that, Griffith died at the ceremony allowing the birth of Femto, in exchange he would be reborn later so that he could pursue his dream once more.  At his rebirth Griffith took the body of Guts and Casca’s child and this futher complicates the issue of who Griffith is. Griffith is a major character in the story and I doubt Miura would simplify him to the point of just being the evil bad guy, and if you've seen the last few chapters you'd know he hasn't.  His situation his very complicated, not even Griffith really knows who or what he is right now.

Also, about Griffith’s relationship with Guts.  The whole reason Griffith forgot his dream is because he had feelings for Guts beyond him being just a “beautiful sword”, pawn or associate.  He really cared about him, that’s why it hurt him so much when Guts left.

Back to the reborn Griffith, did you happen to see chapter 182?

Griffis: when he was a man he sure was incredibly strong. He messed up Guts with ease...even tough Guts was a little bit wounded. Half dead actually...but that don't matter.Afterwards, I dunno. Kinda of a weakling, surrendering to the dream an all. I repeat, as man he wa the greatest leader and most self sacrificing person in the series. He wasn't gay!!! Later, he died, and shit happens...

Guts: Quite a dumb guy. He never stops to amaze the public with the small quantity of compassion, understanding and subtle ways he has. On the other hand, he is by far the best of humanity...he is literally the will to live, the struggle incarnated. He is my favourite of all times. No words, no threats, just hard work. Just like a true karate master.And it really is Guts, not GUTS. I mean ppl, what is this?

Gaisseric: Well, he 's ok. Makes us laugh and wonder of times long gone.

Zoddo: AAAhhh the legend. A prankster. The guy everyone wants as a beer drinkin pal or bouncer.
I think that deep within, he's really chicken wuss.

OTHERS: Screwwww em, they exist to give social space to the four above.

The opportunity is there, but it’s just not worth it. :-/




P.S. I’ve just realized how far away September 14th really is.

The last we see of her, she is sitting with Jerome and the girls, minus Nina (who went off with Joachim).

I really liked Lucca too, her only flaw is that she’s already complete, there isn’t much to discuss.  She’s already a strong and self-assured individual, she doesn’t really have any growing up to do or inner conflicts to deal with; no emotional journey.  It’s not a bad thing, just nothing to write manga volumes about.

I do hope we get to see her again though.

Well, I think the original arc works the best as a single, stand alone movie. Plus, it’s the beginning and you can always go from there. Now for the sequel; The Band of the Hawk. Naturally, it starts with the discovery of Guts under his mother and goes from there. Since the tone is so different, the drama between Guts, Casco and Griffith would largly carry the film. I’d say it ends around the battle with Zoddo. It should probably be filmed back to back with movie 3 since they’ll be so similar. Movie four and five would cover things until the end of the Eclipse.  Movie six: Lost Children.

f I were going to set out to make a Berserk movie , it would focus solely on the Black Swordsman arc.  Making it pretty much a special effects laden, supernatural action epic.  It would be extremely dark and gritty (of course), but it would also be very stylish looking (think Fincher).  I’m not thinking too much about casting, probably a lot of unknowns, except Brando would have to play the Count.  This movie would rock your ass, especially the last half hour, expect seizure reports.  It would end poignantly with Guts leaving the Count’s in tears naturally.  This would easily be one of my favorite films if it existed, not because it would be the Berserk movie, but just think of how the events of those volumes would look on the big screen with state of the art effects? Running time: near 3 hours

I'd love for the whole series to be adapted to film, but this is the one shot deal I’d go with, makes for the best movie.

Well, it’s been a long time since I thought about this stuff, here’s my thoughts on it at this very moment…

I don’t think Griffith loved Casca romantically, he was too driven by his dream to let emotions get in the way, he was surely very fond of her but the only person Griffith ever loved despite himself was Guts.

Griffith wasn’t jealous of Guts, if anything he would be jealous of Casca, but I really don’t think it was a matter of jealousy, more about feelings of betrayal. Their coming together in his absence was somehow a great betrayal to Griffith. It could be looked at as jealously, the fact that their happiness flourished during his suffering, that they could become so happy without him.  Also some control issues lie there, along with them learning to live without him I don’t think Griffith really noticed Guts and Casca getting closer before his imprisonment, it must have been a real shock to see that two people he always thought of as being at each others throats or at the very least standoffish comrades had become lovers.  So, I think he felt totally betrayed by their new relationship, like they were abandoning him for each other.

Casca’s rape at the hands of Femto is a very complicated issue, there are many factors that need to be considered when analyzing it…having said that, I won't discuss any of those factors at all ;D, my short answer is that the rape wasn’t any kind of manifestation of love that Griffith held for Casca, at least not in my humble opinion as Monsieur Hague would say.

I can easily see Casca both wanting revenge and not. Whichever, I do think she will want to see him out.


Character Cove / Re: Why so hard on Casca!?!
« on: January 11, 2002, 04:27:37 PM »

Why some Female fans don't like her? because they are females!
that could be the main reason.
They can't stand Casca.

So, you only dislike Casca because she’s a woman?

Reverse sexism, it’s not a pretty thing. ;D

Well, at least, I believe Mike T. was actually the author of his website.[/quote]

That's why Yong wins the award, Mike merely "borrowed" Walter's code, Yong"borrowed" all his content! The kid’s an innovator!


See for yourself:

Ugh, I thought as much.  I don’t think he’s a bad guy, but he should know better to “borrow without asking” (which equals stealing by the way).  Speaking of which, he asked Skully, but did he get an answer, how often does Skully check his guestbook?  I don’t know why he’s changing the URL and vowing not to talk to us anymore.  What did he expect, he could have at least thanked Walter and Skully (they did write it all) in his intial post, and nicely asked for permission then.  Oh well, I’m sure if he stuck around it could all be worked out.

Wow, I was impressed that this guy actually added Gaiseric to the FAQ (In the wrong place, before Silatt).  But the description did seem VERY familiar, then I realized he just stole that from your ‘Speculatins’ section, so much for him actually writing anything on the site, besides his name on all your work.

Well, I really don’t know what to say about this person other than:

Congratulations, Yong, you win the coveted Mike T Award for excellence in website creation!


P.S. I wonder how he’ll answer these charges? “Huh? Me? Steal? Nah.” God bless the Internet.

Er... No, he doesn't. ^^;
Where did you read that? ^^;;

Here, actually.;D In the old 'Post Eclipse' section.


P.S. Either way, there's no solid proof of Zodd's actual age.

Zoddo? He may be about 300 years old, for all we know...

Yes, he could be, but he could 1000 years old for all we know.  It’s never been made too clear if “wandering for 300 years” is him referring to a change in his lifestyle or just a cute way of saying how old he is.  

Here’s an idea, tell me if I’m totally wrong about this Olivier. But if Zodd is only 300 years old, he would have only witnessed one other God Hand birth ceremony.  But in vol. 13 doesn’t Zodd say that Femto’s ceremony will be the last one, and that he has always found them pointless?  Apart those lines mean nothing but put those comments together and they infer that Zodd has seen all of the God Hand birth ceremonies.  He could have been referring to Apostle birth ceremonies when he called them pointless, but surely he didn’t think it would be the last of the ceremonies altogether.

It makes sense in a desperate disjointed way. ;D

« on: August 09, 2001, 11:02:38 AM »

The Crimson Beherit was created by the God of the Abyss from Void's crystallized tear of blood…Void… with the help of "Apostles" he created, destroyed Midland…

This makes me think, is each generation of Apostle weaker than the last? If the crimson Beherit was created by Void’s tear, then I assume that the tear of the first Apostle Void created (Zodd, likely) was the Beherit for the next Apostle (who made his own tear) and so on.  Zodd (or whoever was first) would be the closest Apostle to God Hand & Idea and next would be the closest to Zodd etc.  So as time went by the strands would keep getting a little bit more diluted and you’d begin ending up with some real losers (the Pig-Apostle Guts fought at Godo’s, or my favorite, the rubber chicken that attacks Judeau in vol. 13).

Also, assuming Void created more than one Apostle himself, then those Apostles tear’s would contain their traits creating many different Apostle arch-types, a type of heritage.  So, a down on his luck Zepec could find a Beherit coming from Zodd’s lineage and become the next super Apostle!

Oh well, these are just nonsensical ravings, but a lot of fun.


P.S. “Hey, watch it, pal! I happen to be a descendant of Zodd himsel!” ;D

A real Dragon Slayer, I’ve got to have one, why weren't they selling it??!!!  

BTW, How much security do you think that store had and how many people do you think it would take to carry it quickly and quietly? ;)


P.S. And yes, if I knew where I could find one in the states, I would seriously conspire to steal it.

I sure wish I could find Griffith on his horse.  I also need to get Zodd and now these Puck statues are out (though, I'm not too crazy about them, anyone one else bothered by the fact they are dark green?)!


P.S. If anyone has or has seen that Griffith statue, let me know.

Weren't those the ones sculpted by Miura himself?

I've been looking for one of these since they were first produced.

Has anyone here ever even seen one in person?


P.S. I hope they make a reborn Griffith statue on his horse, but I think I'd still rather get that one.

Well, Miura hasn’t really unveiled any of Griffith’s reborn God Hand powers yet, and I’m glad.  The subtle things like Griffith moving quicker than the eye and being untouched by hundreds of arrows make him seem unimaginably powerful, much more so than if he had just started blasting Kushans in my opinion.  I’m sure he has all sorts of badass powers though, hopefully he even has a griffin transformation tucked away for later use.
