Speculation Nation / Re: Will Casca return to Griffith?
« on: February 22, 2018, 10:08:11 PM »
I'm pretty sure that Casca has no direct affection or love for Griffith himself, so her joining his side is extremely unlikely. After all that she's been through, Im sure that she'll at least feel resentment and at most feel hatred but I do think its fair to say that due to Griffith using her child as a vessel for his rebirth that subconsciously she may have an indirect soft spot towards Griffith, but again, this is less so affection for Griffith than it is her own child. How she'll come into grips with this internal conflict, I have no idea but it is something I look forward to potentially discovering now that Casca has awakened out of her broken mind state.

The last thing I want to add is a quote from the Idea of Evil in episode 83: "I am the darkness that dwells in every human heart". How very apt. :idea:

Oh wow :isidro:, thats beyond fitting! Its details like that which make rereading Berserk so enjoyable, there's so many minute things like that to pick up on. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Gotcha, thanks for the clarification :)

So in canon, the design of the Idea of Evil is more or less ambiguous (Ep 82) and the lost episode's depiction should be viewed with a grain of salt since its not canon, what is espoused by The God of the Abyss is still more or less canon despite the non canon design though right? I figured that while the episode was removed for revealing too much, what was revealed still held standing in universe. I'll keep in mind that The Idea of Evil can ultimately look like anything or nothing at all, sorta Lovecraftian in the sense that its beyond human understanding, not just a god resembling a heart.

Hey Walter, completely unrelated but before I reply to the actual substance of your reply I just want to say good work of you, Aazealh, Griffith and the others on the podcast, when I first signed up here you had just started it and since then the quality has only improved, yall are my go to Berserk content besides the manga, 90s anime and music.   :ubik:

You're right to bring up the Sea God, in all honesty my memory of latter Berserk chapters is a lil faulty due to a break I took over the slow releases, just started rereading and I'm making an effort to pick up on the subtleties, as of now though Im probably gonna make some mistakes. On that note, Im actually aware that the immediate releases are episodes, I've just always heard of the episode in question referred to as "the lost chapter" so I assumed thats what it was commonly known as, it is inconsistent so I should've guessed that its a mistake; when I say my memory of later chapters are faulty Im specifically referring to post Millennium Falcon arc around the time the ship got involved.

I had no idea though that the visual design of The Idea of Evil was no longer canon, so the concept itself is canon but nothing visually of the episode is? Sorry if its a redundant question, I'm just genuinely confused now as to what is and isn't canon regarding the lost episode. Ultimately you're probably right, Im just overthinking it. Still, I wonder if Miura knows how evocative this design of Casca's heart is to most fans considering the similarities between it and whats commonly interpreted as The Idea of Evil, even if there is no relation I feel like the lost episode is notable enough that he'd surely remember it and know the speculative reaction he'd get out of it.

I realize that speculation goes quite far over what is ultimately a minor detail in the scope of things so it is most likely just overthinking, at the very least there's still something unsettling about it.

So with Episode 354 out, I'm sure plenty of you have noticed the similarity between Casca's heart covered in thorns and The Idea of Evil from the lost chapter, what connection (if any) do you suppose the two have? I recall Miura saying that the reason said chapter was redacted is because it revealed too much too soon, I would say the average assumption is that it revealed too much about Griffith and causality but what if there's actually a relation to Casca?

I doubt the connection was initially planned by Miura at the time of the lost chapter's release but it could certainly be possible that Miura is retroactively adding another layer to The Idea of Evil's scheme and that this added layer concerns Casca and/or her child with Guts. It seems really ominous to me, almost as if The Idea of Evil will have a creeping influence on her but a part of me does figure it could simply be a case of reused/similar designs much like the thorns around Skull Knight's sword or those early illustrations of a cracked skull with a Beherit inside and a rose.

A heart covered in thorns isn't that uncommon of a design so maybe Im overthinking it? It could after all simply be a symbol of her trauma but something tells me Miura wouldn't let the passing similarity in design be just a coincidence.

I guess my timing is pretty great cause I just started rereading Berserk from the beginning after a 2 year break and now I wake up to this episode ending with the suggestion that Casca, one of my favorite characters will return back to normal, hopefully by the time Im done my reread, it'll be March, a new episode will be out and we'll know for sure. Haven't been this excited for future episodes in a loooonnnngg time.

Hey I understand that this is a pretty old thread but I figured it'd be better for me to post here than to needlessly create a new one.

I never got out of Berserk but seeing as how I got into it when I was around 14, I got really occupied and busy with life shortly after joining here so my account hasn't been active for a couple years, Im honestly surprised my account wasn't deleted by the admins or something. 7 years later (approx), I still love Berserk (I guess thats self evident) and I figured I'd come back to the forum since the newest Berserk episodes have really peaked my interest.

Anyways I've technically been here for a while but I guess you could say that Im a new member :) Looking forward to posting more and exchanging words with fellow Berserk fans, with episode 354 out gods know how much I need to passionately ramble about how excited I am for the future of Berserk. Casca waking up and looking back to normal has made me so happy, its truly hard to put into words

My kitty, Luigi.
He's nice, and a great hunter, he tends to bring flying squirrels, ordinary squirrels, rabbits, etc, although recently he hurt his left arm, so he's mostly just sleeping around at the moment  :void:

My 15 year old kitty, Mounie, ( I later realized, what Mounie means in Greek...pretty embarrassing)
She seems to hate other cats, and all dogs for that matter, but she loves humans to death, always begging for attention, although she can get a little rough sometimes, she punched my dog in the face for him sniffing her rear.

Should probably put up a picture of my dog, but my current photos aren't very good.
Put these as links, since the images were too large when I posted them here.  :farnese:

Listened to it last night, great as always, I especially loved the talk over the design of SK.

Best part was when you guys started talking about Skull Knight.  :troll:

A good idea seeing as how there are 5 PS3/Vita exclusive characters.

Yeah, those exclusives, along with the new Twisted Metal, were what pretty much pushed me over the edge, to get a PS3, lol just need to wait a little more.  :void:

Most games I play on Xbox 360, such as Super Street Fighter 4 AE, or UMvC3, but around April, I will be getting a PS3, and Street Fighter X Tekken will be one of my first few games, so if any of you will still be playing the game by then, then I guess I wouldn't mind playing a few matches with any of you  :griffnotevil:

I would want to read the story as told by Miura. Well actually, I would want the time machine so that I could purchase all the future volumes of Berserk and read them right now. Then I would buy the complete and faithful anime adaptation series of Berserk rendered in Blizzard style CG along with the deluxe jumbo sized Berserk volumes with interviews by Miura before I took the time to play the award winning, internationally released Berserk RPG trilogy. If, however, the story could never be completed, I would settle for an accurate summary.

The idea of an RPG trilogy for Berserk just gave me hope I should never have in the first place.  :troll:

Is it safe to assume, that by the time the 1st movie is dubbed, (wether we like it or not), and released, the 2nd movie will already be finished production?  :azan:

Okay a bit late to post but better later then never, listened to it last night, and now that I'm back home, I must honestly say, it was the best yet, you guys are constantly improving, and no worries Walter, you pronounced my username correctly. Thanks for answering the question.

Look forward to the next one!  :slan:

How has Berserk effected your outlook on art, or standards? Do you make comparisons to Berserk or is it separate from all else to you, in terms of quality, depth, personal value,etc.

What moments from the manga, do you look forward to seeing animated in the anime project? Moments from future arcs, or moments cut from the original TV series. I for one get excited over the thought of Lord Mozgus in animated form.

I'm a little tired, so I might have phrased myself wrong, if so, sorry.  :void:

Hmm! Well... the first word that comes to mind is "convenient." The trains are clean and on-time and take you wherever you want to go. There are convenience stores and drink machines everywhere. It's pretty easy to get around, and people are pretty friendly. The food is great. The city is clean and safe (most places, anyway). I really like my little life here.  :void:

Great! I'm a bit of a clean freak so that's nice to know, haha, that definately sounds nice, thanks for answering.  :serpico:
