Listened to some Susumu Hirasawa Berserk tracks today. For whatever reason, out of everything, Indra really hit me hardest, which is funny, because it's the song that I should have the least attachment to. I've never played Sword of the Berserk. I've never watched a playthrough. I've only read a plot summary a few times over the years.
The piece is somber, with touches of ominous tension. But the underlying chords and arrangement suggest, at least to my imagination, qualities of hope and contentment.
It's exactly the kind of music I might expect the series to end on. Something bittersweet, but satisfying all the same. And perhaps that's why it strikes me so viscerally in this moment.
