If anything it's sea-focused, not pirate-focused (what a surprise, considering that the characters are traveling by ship). The boss and his crew have had recurring appearances, but their overall role has been a relatively small one, especially since their death. They were just heralds of sorts for the Sea God after that, and they disappeared for good 2 episodes ago anyway. The real star here is and has been the ancient, monstrous god that Guts is currently inside of. A creature so colossal its size rivals that of an island, like the mythical Leviathan from the Bible.Handmade_lion said:A lot of people are quite "bitter" about this more pirate-focused portion of Berserk.
For the record, this is hardly one of the slower parts of the story. Volume 36 is almost non-stop action, and this is one of Guts' biggest fights yet. The word "epic" is hackneyed nowadays, but it actually properly describes the current events.Handmade_lion said:Let me first say, it is a difficult thing to make a best-to-worst or worst-to-best list with something like Berserk. It's all good, and it all looks good. Even with the pirate, or a slower part of the story
