I'm reviving this thread because it just dawned on me that the final segment of Schierke and Farnese's journey into Casca's mind was inspired by the tale of Sleeping Beauty. Think about it: a 'princess' asleep because of a curse, lying in the midst of a forest of brambles, guarded over by a black dragon. It's only superficial obviously (and there's no prince or magic kiss or anything), but I feel like it's too on point to just be a coincidence, especially since Miura does like to work folklore into the story. To be honest I can't believe I didn't think of it earlier.

What got me thinking was coming across this awesome concept art by Eyvind Earle for the 1959 Disney movie.

his warrior genes from Guts and Casca

I'm not sure what you mean by that. One doesn't get born a warrior, they achieve this condition through training. Simply inheriting Guts' physical potential doesn't mean he'll automatically be a warrior as well. The only way I can make sense of this is assuming you meant he was born inherently talented, which would allow him to perfect martial arts more efficiently, but even so, he would still need to put in effort and interest towards achieving that goal.

Sorry if it came out too critical, something about "warrior genes" just sounded off to me.

I mean if Griffith is gonna die im 100% sure  its going to be guts that does it.
Also I don't know if I can add/change an option I'm deeply sorry I would have added an option of Griffith tripping down a stair case and dying :schnoz: but I cant

Not to worry , I voted for Moonboy destroying him. Come to think of it, given his extraordinary abilities, and his warrior genes from Guts and Casca, the Moonlight boy will be one of the most powerful characters in Berserk once he comes of age.

Well, yeah. That's why I put "break" in quotation marks.

Quotation marks don't matter, what you said just doesn't make any sense in that context. You said Miura threw us a bone (Gigantomakhia) during that break while the creation of Gigantomakhia is precisely why Berserk was on hiatus.

Can I vote for Griffith dying in a non Guts related way?

I don't think anyone believed that Casca regaining her memories would be an easy fix - it was foreshadowed quite a few times that it'd be the opposite - and, simply put, doing so would stunt her development as a character.  Casca becoming an invalid was her way of escaping the trauma she endured during the eclipse, while Guts has had to fight bearing the physical and mental scars of that day; she can no longer run away from what happened and needs to slowly and painfully learn to cope with the memories, and she'll have Guts and co to help her do it.

I think there're to many variables to accurately predict what shape the Berserk world will be in once the God Hand are defeated; we can only know for certain that Guts will get his revenge.
I never though it would be an easy fix like something out of a typical Manga,but Come on it was a little bit of a surpirse though I mean the whole chapter was leading up to this romantic moment and it just turns on you. I always knew that casca will have to eventually face her memory's  of the eclipse I  thought it would be a slow process of her regaining her bad memorys little by little,but that quickly was shocking.

I mean, isn't it just going to be Smash 4 Deluxe with a bigger roster? As a Zelda/Mega Man/Souls fiend I'm a total hypocrite for saying so, but get over it, Smash fans! You're just going to conclude it's not as good as Melee anyway. :carcus:
lol i personally don't care about melee. Without wavedashing (which was a bug) melee was slower than brawl. I'm just excited for dark samus, ridley, young link, etc. I mainly play marth so his changes are gonna be fun too. And it'll be more fast paced than even smash 4 was which i'm really excited for. Even the music is extremely hype. Have you HEARD the gangplank galleon? https://youtu.be/WiH0Nifzovk
Honestly i'm just really excited for it. It's cool if you guys aren't but don't make light of it!

I would hope so but I learned already that you shouldn't get your hopes up too much in this story I mean look at casca regaining her memory's,and then  freaking out at the sight of guts as he brings back bad memory's of the eclipse dark stuff.

Moreover  It seems alot of big actions charcters take have some sort of major drawback for example Griffith opens the doors for the godhand to enter the physical world but didnt he made them more vunerable in the proccess or how about Griffith himself entering the physichal world which possibly gave him his biggest weakness the moonlight boy "cough cough guts leaving band of the hawk Griffith bangs the princess and eventually everyone in falconia getting a fate worse than death because they followed Griffith over a cliff".However I know that whatever happen's the moonlight boy and guts and crew will pull through as to what would be the drawbacks of this we will just have to wait and see. :guts:


Ps: I'm from 1000 years in the future and we are still waiting please help me.

Yeah that game is pretty monotonous except for boss fights and metroid battles. Even then the metroid battles get stale pretty quickly. I really think AM2R did better with the design of it's boss arenas.

It's got some good, fun streamlining of the formula, particularly the controls, and I'm still chugging along before bed, but... everywhere looks and sounds the same, the metroid battles are too derivative, and even the music arrangement is so completely dull, quiet and unmemorable I can hardly recall hearing it! Gimme the Gameboy versions any day.

The Last Guardian - The game continues to escalate both the frustration, diving/swimming is the worst and the camera during some escape moments is the real monster, and impressiveness, going beyond the awe-inspiring moments of grandeur with the beast to tug at the heart strings. It's okay Trico, I'm fine, it's just a little dusty in here. :judo:

Ico - Got to the 2nd bench and the outside terrace, then got my first game over when I was attacked by bird shadows, tried to take out a small one first, letting a big one grab the girl, and then getting knocked over by a weird tentacled shadow before I could get her out of the hole. Sad. Back to The Last Guardian.
