Wheel of Time is....incredibly dense, and spends way too much time with the guys thinking the girls are bossy bitches, and the girls thinking the guys are stubborn dumbies.

I'm switching back and forth between Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series and Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time. And while Mistborn is an incredibly fun, action-filled fantasy adventure, Wheel of Time is....incredibly dense, and spends way too much time with the guys thinking the girls are bossy bitches, and the girls thinking the guys are stubborn dumbies.

Will be very difficult to display (can't see all of the faces at any one angle), but pretty impressed Tsume decided to be so ambitious to do this scene. I applaud them for going all out on their first release.







Also a video on their FB (good to watch this one because you can sense the scale and see all the angles: https://www.facebook.com/tsumeart/videos/2457760067583170/?hc_location=ufi

Speculation Nation / Re: Will Casca return to Griffith?
« Last post by Tekkeman on May 19, 2018, 08:12:53 AM »
I was just wonderring about what Skullnight  once said to Guts, about what wanted may not be what Casca wants. So what do you guy's think. Will she return to Griffith's side once her memory is restored? Will the fact that Griffith's body is her son's sway her mind? Discuss!

Hey yeah, I remember thinking something similar as well that maybe what Skull knight was getting at was that Casca might not want to kill Griffith or that she might still have some attachment in helping Griffith achieve his dream. A possible motivation for her could be that she does not want everyone’s death during the eclipse to be meaningless so helping Griffith is her misguided way of giving their deaths meaning or something?
I vaguely recall a scene where guts is remember seeing Griffith for the first time after the eclipse and I think he says something like "I forgot it had to kill him" or “I lost the urge to kill" and Rickert during his rant when he slaps Griffith says "I couldn’t get angry, I couldn’t shoulder that burden" so I don't think hating Griffith is something that come easily to them but I could be misremembering that.
I know it's not the most popular opinion and from what I’ve read, a lot of people feel like it would ruin the character of Casca, but I hope something like that turns out to be the case I think it would make for some heartbreaking story telling between her and Guts. and I think it would be kind boring if she just flat out hates Griffith.

I just started Nemesis: Alcibiades and the Fall of Athens by David Stuttard

I'm also reading Dreamer of Dune: The Biography of Frank Herbert by Brian Herbert.  It's always a unique experience to learn about the personal details of a man whose written works you have great admiration for.  Brian does a great job of detailing Frank's personal and intellectual development, while interweaving that with his own poignant journey towards reconciliation and friendship with a father that throughout most of his youth was quite cold and distant.  An interesting part of the book was Frank's reaction to seeing Star Wars for the first time

Quote
          When Dad saw the movie, he picked out sixteen points of what he called "absolute identity" between his book and the movie, enough to make him livid.   He thought he saw ideas of other science fiction writers on the screen as well, including those of Isaac Asimov, Larry Niven, Ted Sturgeon, Barry Malzberg, and Jerry Pournelle.
            Still, Frank Herbert tried to be upbeat.  He and other science fiction writers who  thought they saw their work in Lucas's movie formed a loose organization that my father called, with his tongue firmly placed in his cheek, the We're Too Big to Sue George Lucas Society.  Through humor, Dad tried to mask the pain.
           One of his biggest concerns: Star Wars made the filming of Dune an even bigger challenge than before, even more insurmountable, because of the important concepts that had now been pre-empted on the screen.  Not the least of these was the young hero of Star Wars, Luke Skywalker, who, like Paul Atreides of Dune had messianic qualities, with a link to a mystical religious force.

I actually think that the next Berserk adaptation should be a stand alone movie of about ~2 hours in length covering the black swordsman arc.

Indeed.

Character Cove / ApostleBob's updated Guide to Reoccurring Apostles
« Last post by ApostleBob on May 18, 2018, 09:12:54 PM »
In anticipation of the next Berserk Episode, I decided to update my guide to Apostles the reappear through out the series. It now includes MANY more apostles that appear throughout the series, including the New Band of the Hawk's demon soldiers. There are so many more reoccurring background characters than I originally noticed and I wanted a more complete guide that could be added to as the series goes on.

I've given them each nicknames so that I can track them easier. They aren't the most creative names but are pretty strait forward. One thing that I thought could be fun for the community is is to try and assign our own names to them. If we get really good suggestions I'll change them on the guide. Let me know what we should call these guys.

And of course if you spot any other re-occuring Apostles please point them out to me and I'll add them to the list.

Yes, a proper adaptation would really be awesome. The Golden Age arc was great but most of my favorite parts came after that. Oh well, we can always hope.

I actually think that the next Berserk adaptation should be a stand alone movie of about ~2 hours in length covering the black swordsman arc. It would give fans who have seen the Golden Age animated before something new, while getting new fans hooked because they will want to know why the "hero" of the story is so consumed with rage and vengeance. The arc perfectly sets up the world of Berserk & explains Beherits and how apostles are created etc etc. It just makes so much sense to me.

Another benefit of a studio doing the black swordsman arc, they could really focus on making the fight scenes / facial expressions gorgeous because they wouldn't have to animate a whole bunch of side characters, its mostly Puck and Guts vs the world at that point in the story.

Hypothetically the studio wouldn't need to cut a whole bunch of stuff either, because the arc is completely self contained without a bunch of loose ends needing to be tied up.

Would you agree or disagree with my thoughts, McAngus?
