    Episode 131: Eye of the Maelstrom (Ep. 365-366)

    I agree. And while it’s a long shot, there’s still an opportunity for that to happen, whether in future episode serializations or when the volume is released.

    It does seem odd, because there was nothing personally traumatic about her encounter with the Sea God. But when Casca wakes up, she implies she has some memories, and others are locked away. I think it’s possible the negative ones are grouped together, and they are being unlocked piece by piece...

    I've skipped the last 3 seasons of Stranger Things, but reading these comments, I feel like I've absolutely saved hours of my life from the fuckin grinder.

    Dark Horse Releases "Deluxe" Berserk Edition

    I've seen two different printings of Deluxe Vol 1, and both had the same issues. As far as I know, they haven't been resolved. Even if they were, it'd basically be impossible to know which printing you were buying, as in stores they are sealed with plastic. I genuinely think these are fine...

    @NightCrawler I would actually appreciate a write-up of what I've been missing all these years in the docks of Baltimore.

    It's true! I'm guilty myself of falling right into the groove made by the Hill of Swords. But I do think the armor + Casca make this fundamentally different. And I think Miura would have incorporated both of those new elements, somehow.

    Episodes 365 & 366

    There's been much discussion around "What Now?" between Guts and Griffith, and now Guts and Zodd. That makes sense, because the stage has been set up very similarly to how things were back on the Hill of Swords. As a result, you can almost hear the next note before it's played. But there's one...

    As usual, I'll just skip that one. :casca: The absolute hubris of that being their follow-up to the amazing first season is almost -- but not quite -- Twin Peaks Season 2 territory. The NEWS part of Season 5 always felt like a Marvel comics-style portrayal of how a scandal could go down. That...

    Haven’t bothered. I didn’t like anything he’s done since.

    I Think You Should Leave on Netflix is still the best sketch comedy I’ve seen in a decade. Ive rewatched this show (both seasons) more times than I can remember, and it somehow still holds up. I watched People Can Change again tonight and yeah. Still hits me! I’m also rewatching The Wire again...

    That's strange. These episodes made me feel what was lost even more acutely. Or at least reignited my feelings of emptiness now that he's gone. Because you can clearly see that what made Berserk special was Miura's touch. "What would Berserk be without Miura?" is no longer rhetorical: We can see...

    Games to look forward to!

    Also the ghosts in Dragon’s Dogma look and act like specters in Berserk, from possession of your party members down to the water like effect when you slash through them.

    His last name is spelled Miura, btw. And the boy overslept while in his mother's arms. He was trying to leave at the end of Ep 364, but didn't make it out in time. And obviously, all of that was a vehicle to facilitate this showdown between Guts and Griffith.
