Character Cove / Re: Guts VS Zodd 3
« on: December 18, 2016, 03:36:01 PM »
I am somewhat doubtful that in all of their duels, Zodd was putting his all behind his strikes like Guts was. The former being capable of throwing a horse-slayer a few kilometers away; his exchange to Guts on the hill of swords after his sword was damaged lead me to believe that. Despite this, I think Guts with the Berserker Armor would utterly demolish Zodd's human form. Just as he did against Grunbeld.

Apostle form? I don't think it would be the same case, if most matches with Zodd and Skull Knight end with either a stalemate or the latter doing just a tad bit better. It would most likely be Guts losing the fight. Maybe a good ol surprise arm cannon will tip the scales! :troll:

Speculation Nation / Re: Serpico vs pre-eclipse Griffith
« on: December 16, 2016, 12:52:30 PM »
I'd give the fight to Serpico, as the Guts he fought was much more stronger than the one Griffith dueled with. Even by the time Guts fought Wyald, Casca said he was several degress beyond anyone in the hawks, imagine how much further the gap would have increased by the time of the Conviction arc. So with that in mind, Serpico being able to evade Guts' sword swing and slightly scar him is pretty darn impressive.

And to be honest, I think I'd be more invested in other hypothetical fights rather than the same old ones. Musashi vs Serpico anyone? :troll:

Character Cove / Re: Was Rosine evil?
« on: December 11, 2016, 10:45:15 AM »
Just to answer the thread, I sympathize with Rosine. But my feelings of sympathy doesnt justify the horrific deeds she's commited during her time as an apostle. Therefore, I view Rosine as evil.

His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on his armor already, Gambino's spaghetti
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready to drop blows,
But he keeps on forgetting what he planned down,
The whole crowd goes so loud
He grits his teeth, but the legs won't move
He's choking how, everybody's joking now
The mercs run out, time's up, over, blaow!

Excited to hear Guts' new album "Straight Outta Midland"  :ganishka:

Fucking hell this is abysmal. Schierke has the same mental strength as Guts? so if need be, Schierke could cut her arm off? And Serpico is more agile than Silat, the man who can catch arrows in mid flight and survived a fight with Guts is more agile than Serpico.

If memory serves me correctly, I think Serpico was able to intercept Ganishkas lightning bolt and was able to jump in the air to strike one of the steps (with the sylph sword) before it could cease to be. Which requires extremely quick reflexes I'd say.

Vagabond / Re: New Readers (No Spoilers)
« on: September 18, 2016, 01:59:07 AM »

I didn't think it would go that way to be honest because it didn't fit Matahachi's nature to push himself to a completely different level of skill and temperament or conviction.

Really? Whilst I was reading through chapter 58 I was pretty much sold on Matahachi becoming Kojiro. It was for a few reasons, Matahachi during that time was in a state of turmoil, in where he had not really made anything out of his life and picking up the name of a skilled swordsman and essentially becoming him would pretty much be the go to on how to make something out of it. I agree Matahachi would not push himself to reach the peak of his own capabilities through the use of training, or anything that requires a lot of determination and resilience to get through for that matter. But the way he swiftly took out Akakabe told me that he would not really need much of it anyways. As he would be using the confidence he gained through his prior duels with Musashi (being the only one to take him on etc) as a way to climb the ranks if that makes sense. The last reason was when Matahachi stated "who else wants to be cut down by Sasaki Kojiro?" that line with the face he pulled still makes me kinda wish it went that route. But alas I cannot really complain with what we have now, it's still good.

Anime Asylum / Re: 2017 Berserk TV Series (Season 2)
« on: September 17, 2016, 02:04:56 AM »
This is just taking the piss now. I refrained from watching the anime after the first five episodes for the sole purpose of getting that bitter taste out my mouth, and moving on. But another season is going to make that task a lot more difficult.  :schierke:

Vagabond / Re: New Readers (No Spoilers)

Recently started reading (and binging) Vagabond and oh boy, this is really quite the series. To get the obvious out the way, the art is eyecandy. I also love how human Musashi feels, the key example is him running away from Ishun & how he learns to overcome his fear by seeing him (Ishun) in his entierty. It's something that I don't see much manga do, and it just makes me root for him even more (even though I know the person he will inevitably become.)

At the moment I am passed the part where Musashi takes down the seventy men, at first I was confused as to why he would do such a thing especially after what Takuan told him in the second volumes (the one where he tells Musashi that all men have families and lives etc.) But I am relieved the quote in question is brought up and I am curious to see how it influences Musashi currently  :ubik:

Another thing was I the only one who was slightly let down that Matahachi was not going to be the Sasaki Kojiro that would battle against Musashi? I feel going that route would have been quite interesting, to see the everyman use his rival as inspiration to rise up the ranks and become a lethal wielder of the Nodachi.

Podcast / Re: Skullknight.NET Podcast: Episode 78
« on: August 29, 2016, 02:29:02 PM »
That's one of those comma usage jokes, right?  :ganishka:

Aaz explains it on the podcast, but basically if Barytes are indeed the tiny particles that compose evil power, exhibit weight when gathered, and the Idea of Evil is the source of evil power (something we already knew), then suddenly the Vortex of Souls' conical shape is perfectly explicable, and comparable to a gravity well forming around an object exhibiting great mass.

Ah alright, they do share definate similarities. Thanks for the explanation :ubik:

Great podcast, felt enlightened after listening to Guts and his relationship with Barytes, Magnifico and the Vortex being akin to that of a gravity well? May need some clarification on that last one  :ganishka:

Character Cove / Re: Farnese Analysis: The Wild Card
« on: August 28, 2016, 10:32:42 PM »
haha :D
the purpose of "analyzation" was to share my thoughts on Farnese with you guys not to enlighten anyone.

If you're just sharing thoughts, why would you make numerous rebuttals to other users? Also, if you can share what your thoughts are why do you take up arms against other users who are essentially doing the exact same thing?

Character Cove / Re: Farnese Analysis: The Wild Card
« on: August 28, 2016, 07:13:23 PM »
You're welcome to agree or disagree. But as reader (and even as the writer) you're in no position to tell me what the story is about just as I'm in no position to tell you.

Then what was the point in creating a thread whose purpose was for the analyzation of Farnese, in an attempt to enlighten people about Berserk?

Thanks for the summary! I read through it a tad and one thing that has my interest is "the element of weight". Just for clarification, would I be correct in assuming it is related with gravity? If so, then I guess it would explain the dilation of time from Skellig to the outside world.

Ah nice, thanks for that! Just incase anyone is curious, it seems we are going to be getting another release next month.

It seems Wyald will be playable; that Grunbeld, Adon and Boscogne will appear as enemies.

EDIT: Damn looks like I'm late  :judo:

Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: 2016 Berserk album from Susumu Hirasawa
« on: August 21, 2016, 09:56:33 AM »
Now that my excitement has died down, I can write a first impressions of the new music without being influenced by it  :ganishka:

Ashes = Back when I heard this during the second Berserk trailer I fell in love with it. Now after hearing some extended previews my feelings for it have not swayed. The intro with the electronic bagpipes and the "Hai Yo!~" chant is perfect for a heroic/in the nick of time entrance (which I think was utilised in the anime, Guts vs Bakiraka is a good example)

Forces-2016 = I dig this version a lot, with the 17-16 seconds I had listening to it I feel that this version would not suit moments of epic proportions like the original one could, it can definately suit the minor confrontations Guts goes through (like Forces 1.5.) But I need to hear more to properly comment on it, there is a reason that this had the shortest preview.

ZODDO II = It was decent, it's nice to see that "Fear" is getting a new rendition of sorts. The type of song I would play when some catastrophy or a catastrophic battle is going on.

INDRA 2016 = Not much I can say about this one, other than it sounds like a more modern version of the original track. Pretty good.

Ash Crow = I liked this song a lot, mostly because of the "Ash Crow" chants and the rocking guitar playing later on.

Sign III = When I first heard about Sign III I was mostly expecting it to be a rendition of the first version and be similar to it. Was kind of surprised that he made it similar to Sign II which I thought was already pretty much perfect. It sounds good, but I am still a bit puzzled.

My thoughts are probably going to change as I listen to the album next month, and maybe I can flesh them out alot more also. Sucks having to give impressions of music without having much technical knowledge about music  :ganishka:

Speculation Nation / Re: Can the Dragon Slayer be broken?
« on: August 19, 2016, 12:23:37 PM »
To answer your question, yes it can be broken. Nothing has been stated that the Dragon Slayer is a invulnerable weapon incapable of being destroyed. However it is very durable and has managed to withstand a lot of trauma. Also, the ability the weapon gained does not aide it's durability. It just allows Guts to fight against beings who are intangible as it can damage their astral body.

So one day I was looking for some music on YouTube, and then I came across this channel called SiIvaGunner. A guy who shares "high quality rips" from video game soundtracks; needless to say I became quite hooked on them. Here are a couple of them: and a (obligatory) Berserk rip

What a fella.

Berserk Miscellaneous / BERSERK Reunion (2017)
« on: August 17, 2016, 10:04:12 AM »
Stumbled across something a few days ago, I don't think someone on this site has managed to share it at the moment. Gonna quickly share a trailer along with a statement from who seems to be the director (Cesar Cross) and some miscellaneous links. So far it seems fairly... Interesting. But that trailer did not leave a very good first impression, not a big fan of the occcasional WUBS to fade to black I guess.

Thank you all for the initial love and support you've shown for this project. We appreciate the constructive criticism and actually do listen. I've read the entire Berserk manga at least 20 times over the past 15 years and it is by far my favorite story of all time. The release of this teaser trailer is a calculated move on what though may be a very ambitious goal, is also a very realistic and achievable one. I know deep down to the core of my soul that a Berserk live action series can work, but only on a very high level and budget. For this to work, there WILL have to be some slight character design alterations. I know that I will receive initial backlash and hatred for this, but just how Christopher Nolan stuck to his guns when changing the design of the Joker in The Dark Knight, I will stick to my guns and I am prepared for the long road ahead. It is also very important for you all to know this. I will NEVER compromise the real reasons that we all love Berserk for: the deep philosophical concepts, the careful details and attention to character development, the true SOUL of the story and emotional journeys the characters go through when they experience their horrific and beautiful moments. I will not shy away from any of this. If this project is successful and the dream is realized, I will never compromise the integrity of the soul of Berserk. It is not in my nature to sell out. So I ask you all, be patient. There is a method to all this madness.

Not very sure of how that scene foreshadows anything about Casca's cure, also the method of her being cured was not through magical means such as utilizing a gallery/corridor of dreams, but it was through the use of the Mandragora which makes people lose their sanity (but also makes people regain their sanity, as shown in that cutscene)
