Is it just me, or is Miura drawing the DS with a longer handle lately? I know he's resized the blade in the past when it became neccessary, but the hilt's startin' to look like a Louisville Slugger.
It's always the same. Now if you had the two eyes on the same side of the nose, for instance -- or the mouth at the top -- that would be some help.'

I wasn't trying to "toast" anybody, I was just disagreeing with GoHF in my usual cheeky way. :troll:

Anyway, I can see why he'd think Guts would be a little redder after the tiger went in half realistically, I just don't think there's anything to it other than it's too early and easy for Guts to be covered in blood already (Miura's saving it for the good stuff later). :carcus:

My final thought on the amount of gore is basically that there's already been so much that Miura can't really top it without it becoming totally silly, I mean, it already is. And we're so used to it the impact is kinda lost on us anyway. He'll have to make Guts chop his other arm off or something just to get our attention. =)

No, the handle was the same size in volume 21 already, and it's longer in volume 26. It varies in function of the perspective most of the time (see volume 1 to 3), but it's true that he drew it generally shorter in the past (volume 14 - 18). Note that the handle should be long anyway, if it's too short then Guts couldn't wield it properly.

The gore for the most part is excessive.  It's part of what makes the series great.  It also helps make it dark. 

Graphic Violence + Dark Tale + Great Character Development = Berserk

yeah, that is true... Like I said it's the best manga out there (probably my favorite story as well), so I just suck it up and keep reading! Maybe it's like how people look at car accidents, you know it's messed up, but it still draws your attention... Arg, you get what I'm saying :D

Guts is lightening up.  Tragedy is right around the corner  :isidro:

By right around the corner I mean like 6 or 7 volumes.  But then again, someone in his group could be taken in the war.

Tragedy right around the corner?  Maybe we'll get lucky and all the comic relief will get slaughtered.
Ok, so I leave and come back....

Well, he was already doing that before. ^^; It seems to be his standard now, it's true, but it's nothing really new since the fight on the beach. :serpico:


Well, I was just reading through the fight on the beach, and, you're right, we have seen this before from Serpico (Also, the troll and ogre fight when he floats down fromt he church steeple). I guess what I meant was that Serpico seems to be getting even more adept at the flying because, in the panels from 260, it almost seems like he's flying through those hallways at an incredible pace. This didnt seem like the case elsewhere. It's my perception of course, but it seems to me like his "flight" capabilities are improving quite rapidly.
In this world...

I think that he is improving indeed (natural development if you think about it). As I said, what seemed to be a nice feat a volume ago seems to be his standard by now, and I expect him to get to master the wind element even more as time passes. Maybe next time he'll actually succeed without getting wounded or knocked down (by a troll in Enoch and by the Makara on the beach). :serpico:

Agreed: you both do a great thing for Berserk fans for supplying/hosting the episodes. You guys are great for being this nice. :serpico:

Awesome episode with more tigers jumping in & Guts cutting them up. Serpico is finally starting to trust Guts by leaving Farnese with him as they both go off to do their thing. I'm just wondering if the Kushans realize it's a waste of time trying to kill Guts (from the way he's been hacking them up), will they just say 'fuck it' & start using the nobles as chew toys until Serpico shows up to decapitate them?  :guts:

I always thought he got the potential... Anyway I agree he is improving tremendously, very soon he will be a great help to Guts...
