Episode 96: Bakiraka (+Ep. 356-2 Review) (1h4m)

It's a new era -- shorter Berserk episodes means the return of topic podcasts. We take a long overdue dive into the Bakiraka and their significance in Berserk, along with their historical background.

Aazealh's thread fro 2005 about Bakiraka weaponry and their historical basis: http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=3695.msg90697#msg90697

A 2016 interview with a guru of Kalaripayatt, and the history of the martial art that's at the core of the Bakiraka: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oI84oM_bJeg

Hey, my first thread here! And this is a re-release, isn't it?

https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/press-release/2018-03-07/art-of-war-releases-new-berserk-figure-guts-and-zodd-desperate-attack-2018-version/.128605



Quote
This product is originated from the Berserk Comics Vol.32 Episode #277. Facing against an overwhelming enemy Ganishka, Guts joined himself with the other enemy ZODD, and they burst into sky together. It is extremely difficult to reflect circumstance of the scene to statue itself such as lightning sky. But we have finally succeeded to represent force of the original scene by painting lightning directly on molding. From clouds being dyed with purple and orange, Guts and Zodd rush to enemy despite the lightning burns their body. The most impressive point of the item is lightning on Zodd's wings. Our artist painted the patterns one by one with his hand in detail.

Episode 92: Final Fragment (Ep. 353) (1h)

As the corridor of dreams nears its conclusion, Miura shows us he's still full of surprises. The last page of the latest episode, and what the next memory will end up revealing, takes us most of the episode to process.  But Walter still gets a chance to revisit his weird crush on :flora:

Episode 91: Dream Stew [Ep 352] (2h)

It's been a while since our last recording, but we've still got plenty of meat on these bones. In this episode of Casca's dream world, we're treated to Berserk Armor + Guts Dog + Sylph's Cloak + Golem hijinks, and of course a big ol' bird! Put em' all together, add some trauma, and baby you've got a stew going!

Walter ducks out for the last hour of the show while Griff, Aaz and Grail discuss the latest Star movie.

Here's the top 5, and you can see the full results here: https://strawpoll.com/p3sbedwk

Berserk Miscellaneous / Miura's 2017 Manga Seminar
« on: September 18, 2017, 01:56:39 PM »
Over the weekend, Kentarou Miura gave his first manga seminar at an event for upcoming mangaka hosted by Hakusensha. I've scoured the internet for any photos leaked from the event, and I've come up empty.

However, here's an article (in Japanese) breaking down the event and what he said: http://natalie.mu/comic/news/249149

It's pretty clear that he or the publisher requested no photos be taken, and everyone seemed to have obliged the request. Oh well!

Episode 90: Berserk Mythbusters (1h 46m)

Walter and Aazealh are joined by a special, brainy guest to answer some of the most-asked questions about Berserk. Is there really a difference between fate and causality? Maybe apostles aren't so bad? What's an idolm@ster, anyway? Listen along as we decapitate every misconception in existence.

Timestamps for all questions:
00:02:40 - 1. What's the difference between Fate and Causality in Berserk?
00:07:55 - 2. Why doesn't Guts just use the beherit to get more power and defeat Griffith?
00:11:30 - 3. Did Griffith even have a choice at the Eclipse? Is there "free will" in Berserk?
00:15:13 - 4. Griffith's sacrifice is incomplete because Guts and Casca are still alive.
00:17:05 - 5. If Griffith is the Falcon of Light does that make Guts the Falcon of Darkness?
00:22:15 - 6. Why were they on the boat for so long?
00:27:49 - 7. The Dragonslayer must have gotten a big upgrade from killing the sea god.
00:30:05 - 8. What happened during the Incarnation Ceremony?
00:37:13 - 9. Who is the "moonlight  boy?"
00:44:43 - 10. What is "evil" and "evil" power in Berserk?
00:48:18 - 11. What are the apostles, and how are they made?
00:51:19 - 12. What happened on top of Ganishka anyway, and why did it result in the world changing?
01:01:55 - 13. What is the Beast of Darkness?
01:05:52 - 14. What's the relationship between the Beast and the Berserk's Armor?
01:09:19 - 15. Beherits require blood to use.
01:10:52 - 16. Is the Idea of Evil real? Is it considered canon?
01:13:17 - 17. Casca enjoyed being raped / Casca was already raped by apostles.
01:19:04 - 18. Misconceptions about Kentarou Miura
01:33:20 - 19. Why are astral wounds different from physical wounds?
01:37:20 - 20. Elves only encompass winged beings like Puck and Ivalera.
01:40:25 - 21. The Black Swordsman Arc spoils the Golden Age Arc.

We finally dive into Casca's mind and see the calficied damage of the Eclipse. Stick around until the end for about 20 minutes of us gushing over Zelda: BotW.

PS: I finally did it. I said the wrong number podcast at the start. When you hear "Episode 86," just know that you aren't suddenly a visitor from the future, I merely said the wrong number.  :judo:

The landing page for Skullknight.NET is old. Very old. In fact, it's so old that it's entirely feasible there are members here who were born after it was coded by me in 2003.

I would love to give it a modern redesign, but my skills are very limited. I've done a mock-up in photoshop (which I won't share here, for fear of being mocked), but I would also love some input from anyone who is willing to share a few hours of their time in helping it look and feel great.

If you're interested, please send me a PM and we can chat! Thanks in advance.
