Time travel in Berserk?
« on: April 30, 2012, 09:25:37 PM »
Does time travel exist in the Berserk world?

If so...is it possible that TSK is someone we already know in the future?

We haven't seen any so far, and I don't believe we ever will.

I doubt it very much. We know Skullknight is able to move through the layers thus distorting "time-space" (very not sure about that part and was not able to formulate it better than that). I don't think it has anything to do with time travel at all.

I don't see any evidence of time travel, just prophecy. Can you point to something specific?

Yes.  Skull Knight is the future version of Emperor Gaiseric.  :SK:

The notion has not been introduced at this point.

Not really.

We know Skullknight is able to move through the layers thus distorting "time-space" (very not sure about that part and was not able to formulate it better than that).

The Skull Knight can move through different parts of the world by somehow cutting through them, but there's no evidence of a distortion of spacetime, a concept that hasn't been mentioned in Berserk so far.

Yeah that's what I thought. Thank you for clarifying.

Well, Griff (the Admin, not the character) traveled to the future and came back with some pretty revealing information, as far as the Skull Knight is concerned. :troll:

Oh, it was no episode, my friend. I was at work earlier, so I didn't have the time to search for the thread, but now that I'm back at home:

Fun fact: For Berserk to reach volume 62 by the year 2020, Miura would have to produce at an approximate rate of 3 volumes a year, including this one.

Yikes. Well, that's not going to happen. He'd have to seriously cut down on the quality of the series, and none of us want that.

But if he can cut through parts of the world...one would wonder if someone like him or Void can cut through time itself.

What I am getting at is...everyone seems so deadset on TSK being Gaiseric but could he be someone else from the future...like...Guts?

I know it seems insane, but it just seems like if hey can cut through current time, that maybe they can cut through time itself.

It's not that it's insane, it's that there is just utterly no precedent for anything time travel related in the series.

No. There is a mountain of proof against this concept.

if hey can cut through current time
That is not what the Skull Knight does. He cuts through the layers of the world. Not time.

Why? Also, please explain to me how the concept of slashing through "time" is supposed to work.

It's pretty clear that he is Gaiseric. And it's impossible that he would be Guts.

Thanks for the call back, Rhombaad! :ganishka:

Some scary stuff, like using the year 2018 (closer than we think) or that the God Hand will be defeated by volume 38! I guess at a certain point I won't be able to claim, "I ALWAYS expected the series to last this long." =)


Anyway, if it hasn't been said, there already is proof of Time Travel in Berserk... Guts and friends have been traveling into the future for years! :troll:

Kidding aside, as mentioned there's serious time-space potential with the Beherit Blade, and from a certain point of view, Griffith did (meta)physically time travel years from one ceremony to another. There have been more roundabout methods of time travel in science fiction than that. :griffnotevil:


Ultimately though, in the spirit of the question and time travel stories in general, obviously not.

I wouldn't call that time travel. Would be a misnomer.

Yet it makes more sense of time travel that Lost ever did.
