I've been searching back through the site history for old posts about the TCG. I know it's a longshot, but I'm wondering if you still had any TCG singles or product you're willing to sell. I've been collecting for about a year and am getting to the point where the only stuff left to collect is sealed packs, super rares, secrets, foils, and promos. I also need a lot of the BK5 rares. Any help is appreciated!
First time I've been able to log in and browse the boards since "that day". I give a lot of credit to the leaders here for soldiering on with the forum and the skullcasts and such. I still haven't really accepted it. I must be in denial. Hopefully little by little I can come to terms with it. But I miss my skullknight family ;_:
My friends and I made a cover song of Tell Me Why when Miura passed away. I didn't post it back then out of respect, it was not the time to advertise it. I'm posting it now, even if some of us are still in shock, hoping at least 1 of you enjoy it. Thanks.
1/3 Yesterday me and my brother-in-law got really drunk as I poured my heart out to him about Miura's passing. He hasn't read Berserk yet but knows how highly I regard it and how much it means to me. Something that came out of our talk is how the truly formidable artists and heroes can die before completing their great act, and how in a sombre way, it might be a more profound ending to their legendary effort.
Of course, If I were to choose between this reality and one in which Miura-sensei gets to hatch the last pages of his great story and then go on to create even more, I wouldn't think twice about it; but as things stand, I'd like to entertain the idea that there is at least something right or meaningful in how everything ended. I want to think of him as someone whose art preceded him until the last moment, and that's what he will undisputably be remembered by.
I've been trying to keep my mind off it all and just force myself to be positive however I can. Be it gaming, or time with loved ones, or what have you. It's difficult. I feel like I said all that I needed to with my main big comment here talking about Miura's status as a legend, that helped, but following that it's just taking time for me to make peace with it all.
I still can’t be in a good mood. I still think about what I will do from now on without Berserk, without checking this forum if a new chapter will come out or not. After 11 years, a page of my life has ended, the most important one so far. How much Miura taught me with the Guts' story!
I've stumbled through the past two days and realized in the end that it hurt more than I expected. I've been distracted and inattentive at work and home. I didn't sleep for about 36 hours after the news. My wife insisted I take a sleeping pill and eventually that won. I've had several tragedies in my life. Most of these—the death of a loved one, being laid off while starting a family, having death dangled right in front of me—were more destructive and traumatizing than Miura's passing. Having survived those and more and never truly facing depression, I consider myself emotionally solid. But there's something unique about this. It's a knife that cuts differently. Because even though it's someone who I didn't know, I followed everything they wrote to the letter. Miura was the one consistent voice that has lifted me up every few months and kept me coming back for more. I feel like I've made my peace with his death. But now I'm facing a wide open road, and I don't know what to do.
