If you ask me, which you didn't, we should have a run-off!

Anyone with 4 or more votes should go into a new poll so we can find out the true second favorite Berserk character is. Puck, Serpico, Griffith, Casca, or Skull Knight.

I voted for Puck.  He's far less annoying than he was in the first volume. :puck:  Isidro was up there as well, but since I could only vote for one..D:

I find Puck and Isdiro to be annoying in a lot of instances. I voted for Serpico because he is my favorite besides Guts. Skullknight would come in as a close third.

Without him, Casca would be dead.  He's a great addition to the party and is developing well as a swordsman.  I imagine we'll see a lot more improvement from him in the future, as well as great character development.

Missing Sonia?

I have a few current favorites:

Serpico - Would probably get my vote. I like the subtle transition he's undergoing from cold to caring (with regards to Guts specifically). I also like the analogy of him being buried under snow (the childhood episodes), and the shutting off of his emotions and forming a cold shell. He's smiling a lot more these days (crow's nest scene) and he seems more free, more in line with the "surrounded by wind" analogy. He has a pleasing design, artwise.

Schierke - To me she is the latest embodiment (paired with Guts) of an underlying theme in Berserk, which is the contrasting juxtaposition of innocent/naive/cute with grim/macabre/mature, and of course the overarching theme of light vs. dark. She is not just an "innocent", though, as Jill was in the Lost Children chapter. Her training and upbringing allows her a uniquely mature and experienced role, and lets her be an "equal" with Guts (confronting him, scolding him, sharing mind and body with him), which goes with Flora's telling her that their fates are tied.

Farnese - I think I'm going too deep with these. She's a complex character with a lot of depth and a lot to offer the group and the story.

Roderick - Didn't like him at first. Really growing on me. He's a charmer. The sea episodes really clinched it, but he'd already shown depth of character (watching out for Isidro) before then.

Isidro - He's a kid. And he's awesomely exemplary of that. The "annoyingness" is part of it?

Irvine - I really dig his apostle form. Unexpected but appropriate; to me that's a hallmark of good storytelling.

Sonia - Also an awesome kid and exemplary of that stage of life. She has a nice parallel with Schierke and the whole "cute within the macabre" theme. She's also talented and "mature" in her own way. And she's hard to predict, which I think makes for a great character.

Anyway, I'll choose Schierke instead of pushing Serpico into the lead.

[Edit] My overall favorite is Griffith, followed by Guts. But they're out of this vote for me.

Just to stir the pot:  What about Void, Ubik, Conrad, and last but not least Slan... to be crude, blunt (possibly sexist) but those tittays definitely deserve a spot on the pole  :ganishka:. Dirty euphemism for the win.

Oh and how bout counting the beast of darkness, he could be considered enough of an alter-ego to be counted on the pole right? I'd vote for him.

Bah, are they really needed? Who's going to vote for them? I'm waiting for someone to ask for Jill or Luca now... Besides, we decided to limit it to characters that have appeared more or less recently.

You and I both know Slan would definitely beat Grunbeld, Locus and possibly Sonia, hell maybe Roderick. Never underestimate the power of those puberty pillows, my friend  :puck:.
Missed that recently comment, but I can understand this poll could explode easily to like 30+ characters, but I still think she'd get her fair share, Void too.

Griffith or Serpico?

I choose Serpico, he is the third best swordman in Berserk.

Guts, Griffith and Serpico.

Hahaha, it's been a long time since Griffith's swordsmanship has had any relevancy. The last time it mattered was at the end of volume 8, and it wasn't especially complimentary.

Votes have been counted for just over a month now. I say we move this into the semi-finals by narrowing down the top 10, or 5 candidates. Any naysayers?

I vote yes, and no voting out of sympathy for lack of votes, no pity for Berserk favorites imo! Yes I'm looking at you  :sad: (not you Walter.. I think)

Sounds good. But if you're doing a top 10 with the current results my dear Sonia won't be Sk.net's next top model.  :judo:

Underlying theme?
Tell me more...
Berserk isn't really "dark fantasy" either. It's plain fantasy
Miura has been very protective of Berserk
