This is the first time we've seen Griffith incarnate allow a blow against himself. That slap (for what its worth) is more than Guts or anybody has been able to get.

WOW.  :ubik: Bravo Rickert! I think we know what a Rickert emoticon would have to be if one is ever to be made. *slap*

I expected some type of emotional response in front of Griffith but I honestly didn't seriously consider Griffith being struck. The stern look on Rickert's face is actually heartbreaking, it's about all he can do for his dead comrades and I'm sure he knows it. What's more unsettling is his facial expression after...

But first I need to take a second so that the fanboy in me can give props to Rickert.

I think its a great idea! I can't tell you how many times I've read a post and went to hit "like" before realizing this isn't facebook.  :troll:

But seriously, Karma on a Berserk forum. It just makes sense.

The world spiral tree must connect directly into Griffiths Kingdom somewhere. Easy access for when The Moonlight Boy travels around. Possibly giving Guts a way in IF he can find a way to use it.

I'm getting way carried away here.

Alright sorry about some of my misconceptions. I am still quite a Newbie when it comes to Berserk only finding out about it a couple Months ago and just starting pick up the the Manga where the anime left off.

I HIGHLY suggest you read the manga from the beginning. The anime misses a lot of vital information and it's really not worth it to skip anything. Not to mention the entire first Arc of the story in books 1-3, which is completely awesome.

I always thought that the Snake Baron seemed a lot bigger in his Volume 10 cameo than he did in the beginning.

Manga Mausoleum / Re: Favorite Arc
« on: September 14, 2014, 07:37:12 PM »
It's almost impossible to pick a favorite but I guess I'd go with Millennium Falcon Arc. Although with the way the Fantasia Arc is going I can easily see that one being a favorite. I guess My favorite arc ends up being whichever one is currently happening lol.

I tend to lean towards the newer stuff though in general, starting with Millennium Falcon. I feel like that's when the story "truly" begins. I know Miura made a similar comment at the time, and I take it more literally. That's also why I secretly hope there is one more story arc after Fantasia so that, in my mind, we get a sort of trilogy of arcs that make up the main bulk of the story. Of course this all just my own bullshit.

In terms of story structure, he's more concerned with story arcs. Events aren't punctuated around the volumes, but instead  flow organically. This of course leads to some awkwardness. There are a number of examples, but the biggest recent one is that Falconia's dramatic entrance happens in the first episode of Volume 35, even though it would have been the absolutely perfect conclusion to Volume 34, since that episode ends the Falconia Chapter AND the Millennium falcon Arc. A new arc (Fantasia) begins directly afterward, not at the beginning of a volume, but in the second episode of one. Also, every other episode in Vol 35 focuses on Guts' side of the story.

I think it's pure luck that the Millennium Falcon Arc just happened to start at the beginning of Volume 22. Other than Volume 1, it's the only time that's really worked out.

As I was telling Walter the other day, what I personally find amazing about this whole business is that I'm apparently the only one who remembers that the current "gamer culture" was fabricated by the same "gaming press" about 10 years ago. Before that people just played video games. Gamers are dead? Fine with me, and I've been playing video games for longer than most people involved in this argument have been alive.

Well that's not hard, especially at your age.   :troll:

But yea, it's just bullshit. Playing video games my whole life, seeing the "culture" develop into what it is today is a strange journey.  It's done more harm than good in the minds of people who are outside, looking in.

 I miss the 90's.

Alright fyuturistic, you convinced me.  I just ordered the first 3 books of this series.  I hope it's as good as you say.



Just came in. I really dig the quality. Nice hardcover, big, full color pages. God damn if any series deserves this kind of treatment it's Berserk.

Just started reading Urasawa's Monster. Viz recently began releasing "perfect" editions of the series with two volumes in each release, with nice thick covers and quality paper. The story isn't necessarily blowing me away yet, however I can already tell that it is a work of superb quality.

Every time Viz goes and pulls a clutch move like this, it makes me wonder what could have been if they'd secured the US publishing rights to Berserk, instead of Dark Horse...

Hmm, I always wanted to read this. With the release of these Perfect editions I might do just that =)

And yea, I think Berserk is long overdue for similar treatment. Dark Horse must raise their game.

EDIT- I was wondering if anyone has read Alan Moore's book Voice of the Fire? If so, is it any good?

I just caught a random episode of this show on Cartoon Network last night before I went to bed. Since I don't keep up with anime at all these days I was completely in the dark about this show. I must say I was impressed. I had no idea what was going on but the episode I saw kept me interested. It was a very action oriented episode and the Titans were pretty cool. I also like the animation.

Might watch more of it someday.

You're right. Just getting way too excited about the current events.

I didn't even think you read Berserk anymore.

I also listen to a lot of podcasts while cleaning. Do you do dishes or laundry often...?

My grandmother does those things.

Perhaps I could listen to the podcasts while she's cleaning? Good thinking Walter.

I have the same issue. I can't listen to a podcast while browsing and reading, after a while I'll realize I hadn't comprehended anything that was said. I need to give it my full attention and unfortunately my commute isn't long enough so I do end up just staring at the screen the whole time lol.

Ah yeah I remember that part! God I love this manga. So many great moments.

Lmao, fuckin Gobs lol

Great episode!

The thought of some kind of fight happening on the bridge in the distant future is exciting  :ubik: It's easy to imagine and seems very likely, at some point.

When I think about my favorite Berserk moment the first thing that comes to mind is when Skullknight appeared at the junction of times and took a strike at Femto.  No doubt that preview was one of the craziest things I'd ever seen.

The audio questions are a great addition I think. I enjoyed the discussion. It's cool to think about Vritannis crumbling, decaying and overgrown and overrun with all sorts of shit. Thanks!

Thanks for the summary Aaz. I love this episode! Always down for more time spent with Locus. It's interesting to hear his perspective on Falconia. The transition on pages 9 and 10 of the doors opening is brilliant. I too think it's obvious that's there's much more in the dome than just this arena which is like Aaz said, pretty small actually.

I've said it before but I'll say it again, I love this whole journey Rickert is taking through the Falconia. We the readers get to explore the whole place with him with the same wonder and awe. Miura is spoiling us truly with such effective storytelling.

I was surprised to hear about this. First Dark Tower now Westworld? If nothing else HBO has shown some ballsy initiative when it comes to their miniseries'.

As someone who is completely ignorant of the books and has no intention of ever reading them, I find the show enjoyable. Its good most of the time, and really good some of the time.

I always figured it was the casting, which was a problem I immediately recognized once I saw the actor on screen. Kid has zero charisma.

But he's so sexy   :troll:

Its true though. Its so much more apparent when he's on screen with one of the other more talented actors. For example, when he and Sam are on screen at the same time its like night and day.
