Not much else I'm afraid.

We have a Ganesha temple near us, and I used to live near a street: Kushan Road.

hmm I forgot about midland, there's a Midland crescent in my city as well.
Outside of the city there's a place called Tudor as well as an Albion drive.

Still there are some pretty neat places around the world. Like Kushan in Kazakhstan. or 55190 Void France, or even the numerous towns and cities called Griffith. Heck there's a place called Puck in Poland. :puck:

Famous park in LA: Griffith Park.

Is this the kind of stuff you were asking about in this thread? I think I'll change the name to: Berserk-related stuff in the real world

Griffiths Stadium in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Edit, Walter this isn't really Berserk related stuff in the real world. More like Berserk terminology or names that appear in the real world.

The city in France: Nice, clearly named after the city-state in the Holy See Alliance.

Updated the name of the thread. It's so general it kind of reminds me of the Berserk ABC thread.

Hm, down the road from my folks' place Columbus turns into Midland, GA. And there is a Wyndham hotel.
I've also experienced a few Solar Eclipses. :griff:
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

I didn't have that in mind when I started it but it turns out just pretty cool anyway. So I'm gonna say yes hehe. I was just happy to find a Griffith street in my town but now it's cool to see a lot of stuff have names that we find in Berserk. hehe  :guts:

Let's all pretend that they were inspired by the manga! Miura rules!!!

ps: If I knew there was a thread similar to that I would have posted there by the way haha. Like the original name said it, it was just a funny pointless fact that I found out about. :serpico:
