What if the manga wasn't titled Berserk?
« on: June 26, 2011, 09:21:38 PM »
I was bored last night and was thinking about how Miura got the title for Berserk. It's pretty obvious it's a reference to the main protagonist, Guts, and his natural instinct to go, well, berserk. Especially if Griffith is around. But what if the title was different? What ideas would you have had for the title?

I actually kinda had a hard time thinking of one. Struggler or Midland seem to fit. I really tried to think of one that could incorporate dreams and ambition as themes in the title but had a hard time thinking of one that doesn't sound too hokey.

The Never-ending Story might've fit.  :troll:

Honestly the title he chose is perfect when I think about it, it can reference to a lot of different aspects of the story in a lot of different ways, but it's still fun to think about.

Ideas, thoughts?

Or better yet, The Black Swordsman or simply Guts.

"Band of the Hawk/Falcon" would be pretty cool, even though they all died. Guts adventure started because of their deaths, so yeah why not?

also:

"The Black Swordsman"

"Struggler"

"Egg of the Emperor"

"Beherit"

"God Hand"
--
"Dog and His Sword"

"A Schnoz and His Cave"

"Adventure Time" (with Guts and Puck)

are also good.

The Brand / The Branded perhaps?
At the end of time, a moment will come when just one man remains. Then the moment will pass. Man will be gone. There will be nothing to show that we were ever here... but stardust.

Digging Mainland and Guts as alternatives.  Of course Berserk is perfect, but I wouldn't mind those.
