Hey, HELLO!? Is anybody out there? Don't mind the double post because it's the only Breeze post since my last; this is my de facto blog now. :slan:

Anyway, 2049 has stayed with me, a good thing, and thus my stance on it has softened around it's admirable traits as a worthy visionary successor rather than persisiting technical difficulties (like a DNA test? =). Before I see it again without the clouded eyes of expectations I've been scratching the itch it through other media, and came by this review by none other than Hideo Kojima:

http://www.rollingstone.com/glixel/features/kojima-dreams-of-blade-runner-w509779

"Starring George Harrison" Now THAT would be a technical marvel, but I'm blaming a caption editor for that one. :ganishka:

Anyway, I appreciated the insightful, personal and straight-forward analysis of the piece and joked to myself if it's truly representative of his work it should go completely off the rails with confused metaphors in the second half... and then he did with the weird replicant motif! But not much, just a little nonsensical, and mostly superficial, which is kind like 2049 to the original (but with more heart and emotionally resonant storytelling throughout).

Speculation Nation / Re: So i have this theory
« Last post by shinpeiro on October 19, 2017, 08:42:52 PM »
Hello everyone,
New to the forums. Been following Berserk since 1999-2000 when I was living in Japan and to the core, a HUGE Hokuto no Ken/Fist of the North Star fan. I own the Dreamcast/PS2 and PS4 games just because I want to support Miura's work. Been reading some info on Skullknight.net off and on for 10 years, but first time I actually registered and I am enjoying the podcasts.

I have a very similar theory with Casca using the Beherit, but a different sacrifice. Although not to be a tease and not explain my theory, but I'm of the mind to let the author do the storytelling and let the fans appreciate his work/art. I'll explain when the series comes to an end. I don't want to jinx anything  :-X  :zodd:

What an enigma is Mr. Miura. I can't think of anyone who has lived a more private life.

Come on, that's a bit of an overstatement. Aside from choosing not to openly engage in social media (we know he's a member of NicoNico Douga) and refrains from picture taking, Miura's not that mysterious. Hell, he recently was a key speaker at a seminar! He shares what he's interested in 6-12 times out of the year, and a half-dozen times in his life has been the subject of in-depth interviews widely distributed by magazines. There are far more popular and notorious recluses Bill Watterson and J.D. Salinger come to mind.  And I don't know a TON about other mangaka, but I would bet that there are others who choose to lead more private lives. Miura might stick out because Berserk has been going a long time, but I don't think he's that special in this regard.

Quote
And while I think a lot of us might feel starved of content surrounding his personal life, I've been thinking about that recently, and what it might be like if he was super active on say Twitter or Facebook. Perhaps our high opinions on him might change, if ever so slightly. Perhaps we'd get more than we bargained for? I'll quote Trent Reznor (if for no other reason than he was on Twin Peaks recently).

That's an interesting thought, but Miura probably isn't going to be the guy making asinine complaints on Twitter. 

I've considered what might be different if Miura were more open about things like the hiatuses, and I don't think more information would change anything. At the end of the day, he's going to release it when it makes sense for his schedule, which he dictates.  If he wrote explicitly about his health, mental or otherwise, preventing him from releasing Berserk like he did in his 20s, people would still complain about the rate of release, because they're simply rabid for more, regardless of the reasoning.

I'm in the camp I believe most of you are in, where we'd probably go right on respecting and loving Kentaro Miura just as much if not more than we always have if he decided to share work in progress art and cat pictures. But I can't help imagine a world, somewhere between Twitch.tv's CS:GO and Hearthstone channels, where a master of his craft makes music-accompanied progress on a work at a never-before-broadcasted pace, and may or may not stream iDOLM@STER in between panels.

Not sure I can follow you on that last part. Miura's pretty old school. I don't think he'd set up a 24/7 live cam of his work habits.

"Demystification is a real problem," he said. "There've been people whose music I can't like anymore because I've seen them bitching on Twitter about a waiter."

Yep, the bit with  the Miuranger's pages kinda gave me hope for the legitimacy of the photo.

Also, I'm not sure, but I think is Chinese.
Or, at least, it's Chinese according to Google Translate.

Yep it is, I'd have known too if I had listened to it at the time.  :ganishka: Anyway, thanks for sharing.

I think you kind of buried the lead there, Raffo. Yet another b+w photo of Miura in the '90s isn't really a big deal. But that video shows sketches of Miuranger, the manga he made in grade school for his friends.

So, didn't want to open a new Topic for this 'cause I can't find if it's legit or not [so, yeah, feel free of cancelling this without the slight remorse].

I found this:


It's from this video.
http://www.bilibili.com/video/av15079207/

Never seen this photo before, so, here I am, sharing this [legit???] finding.

It's an artbook (the only real one for Berserk) released in 1997, featuring a long in-depth interview with Miura. The translation for it is here, thanks to Puella and our Patreon backers.

Ahh how silly, I have it in my bookshelf. Never known it by that name though! Thank you.
