Berserk MMV (Manga Music Video)
« on: June 20, 2010, 05:12:50 PM »
I'm sure a lot of you have seen a few of the Berserk Manga Music Videos out there, some are very nice and some are a nice effort. Recently there has been a new music video which I find very nice and might help over with the wait for the next episode (which is soon regardless). I'll post a few of the ones I find are best. Some might have been seen before (older ones).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PE22PP4lKw
This one is old and I'm sure most of you have seen it. Dark Tranquility - Wonders at your feet

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJkrzr-8CEc
This one isn't too old maybe 5-8 months old. Coldplay - Fix You

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-Uvc2-JIFc
Now THIS one is fairly new and should not have been seen by TOO many people (although this is a Berserk Forum so chances are some of you have seen it). Its heavy on editing but a lot of work must have been put into this one.

The song is by In Fear and Faith - Taste of Regret.
Not my kind of music but the video is worth a watch. If you wish to acquire it on your computer you can download it off AMV.org (link is provided in youtube description).

These are not my works, I only want to share these with you as they are Berserk related and are entertaining for those who like this type of stuff.

Enjoy

I kinda dig the first one..  but the last one is a prime example of why AMVs aren't fun to watch lately.  Let's just cut this shit all up and throw a ton of CG and effects at it and make everything go fast YAAAAAY.  If that much effort was thrown at just making animatics of a few manga sequences how cool that would be...

Let me first say that I have to hand it to the guy for the advanced editing on "The Beast Within." However, in the end it's mostly nonsensical. I had the same problem with this as I do with most Berserk music videos -- they take unnecessary artistic liberties with the material, all in the name of COOL FX.

Guts visiting Ganishka in Wyndham? Really? I must have missed that in the manga... A picture of all the Falcons disappearing one by one, and Rickert disappears too. Hmm, no that didn't happen. And then we have all the ham-fisted imagery, such as a picture of Griffith being sliced in half by the DS, and in the end, the DS ends up in his skull as the title credits roll.

In my opinion, stuff like this only ends up discrediting the series for the uninitiated, making it look some kind of unsubtle, reveling blood bath. It reminded me of this Oekaki drawing I did for comedic effect as a tribute to all the anti-Griffith people:



This, I can only gather, is what the editor of the video wishes Berserk was like.

I know all the editing wasn't for everyone, I don't find it too appealing but I thought it was fun to see someone take Berserk and make something else out of it. I usually approach things like this as going to the movies, if you take it too seriously you might not enjoy it. I know the Source Material for Berserk so it didn't really bother me with the changes but it's true it would throw off new comers to the series.

Mostly this was to show how far video editing goes though, you can take still images and bring them to life in a sense. A lot of very cool effects were used and some people here who might be into the whole video editing/graphics etc... might like it.

As for the first one, that's been an old one for quite some time, its probably one of the first edited (slightly anyways) MMV I have seen and possibly one of the few firsts. I know it got a couple my friends into the anime and, in time, the manga since they were skeptic about Berserk at first. Gave them a watch and now I have two friends buying the Dark Horse Mangas.

 :ganishka: lol I laughed out loud when I read this. but yeah, there were a ton out of place things... and maybe it's been a while since i saw AMVs but that was pretty darn impressive. High Quality and a lot of editing.. must of took a while to do. I haven't seen an AMV like that before, I enjoyed it.

Randomly found this. Found it pretty good. Just was a bit too much on matching the music with the scenes. Still enjoyable for a MMV.

Pretty good editing, but I can't say I'm a fan of the song.  Lol'd at Walter's epic drawing.  Yeah, the Beast Within is a little overkill.  Pretty creative editing, though a bit goddy.  This is probably why I don't like fan fiction.  It's usually pointless.

Man, for some reason I found it extremely hilarious. I mean, he animated Griffith riding the horse like a little kid would... and it's full of little ridiculous things like that. :ganishka:

The Epic of Griffith was pretty cool.  Neat comparison to draw.  I also liked the song, it was unique...like rap, but poetic.

I've seen most manga Berserk videos that Youtube has to offer; it's just a shame there aren't more. I can't wait for them once the new anime starts; anyway, here's quite a bit more that haven't been mentioned. Just in case anyone needs to find them here, and won't see them on the Youtube page:

My favorite of the group:

Lilium Berserk:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qaVmO9YTKrI&feature=related

Tale of Berserk:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0pZoYHpmlc&feature=related

Dead Berserk:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpXoTHwl8E0&feature=related

Kajiwotore:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pk3IBlxBaw&feature=related

The Eclipse: (literally a full 9 minute video of the manga Eclipse)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMmNLzZNQuo&feature=related

and finally,
Doombringer: The Black Swordsman
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmWVGY7hl3U&feature=related


Those are the really the absolute best ones I've ever found and that I think are worth putting up on this list.

But seriously, I know next to nothing about video editing, so this was basically just done on the fly with whatever iMovie could do that I could figure out in five minutes. It came out sorta bad, sorta okay.

I completely enjoyed this one!!  Great song choice too. :serpico:

Yeah, thanks to you, I decided to click on that one (so many to choose from, I'll get to them all eventually), and I agree.  I liked this one too!

Another one I thought was pretty cool.  I guess I like the softer ones. :slan:

Finally, about the "Beast Within", I gotta say, the editing skills are CRAZAYY GOOD.  It was definitely a cool watch, and I'll probably watch it again because I didn't catch everything the first time.  But it's true, emotionally, it didn't do anything for me.  It was just great eye candy!  Like porn!

AND ALL IN ALL, all these MMVs just make me want to see the new animated Berserk project more and more.  MY GOODNESS I'M EXCITED!

I like the effects a lot but they've been sped up so much that my eyes hurt (I watched the video in Mute cos I'm at work). 2:50 - 2:57 was supacool.

Just stumbled upon the a new one of these that has really blown me away with some nice after effects video editing (maybe the best ever). I thought the 2nd half was really good.

Wrong link/ topic? By the way, this reviewer is unintentionally hilarious and I don't think he knows that. Couldn't get past a lot of it, fast forwarded to some parts and it's EXTREMELY cringe worthy.
