    What are you reading?

    I'm thinking of picking up Kafka's Metamorphosis. It has a pretty irresistible premise.

    Cowboy Casca Casca in Manco Won't let me insert images directly so this is the best I can do. Troubleshooting on this?

    Dollars Trilogy

    Just watched the first two movies in Sergio Leone's Dollars trilogy for the first time, even after seeing the Good, Bad and the Ugly at least thrice. It's filled me with an unquenchable thirst for westerns. Would highly recommend the first two if you haven't seen them already or haven't bought...

    The relevance of Berserk's opening scene

    You are free to disagree with it to any extent, but my response is not disingenuous. I do not know Japanese, so I will have to take your word for it.

    The relevance of Berserk's opening scene

    Grammatical mistake on my part, should have been "while not," not "if not." My bad. While it is not an act of rape, it is still an act of sexual violence (in the most literal sense) for both parties, in that both are attempting to exploit sex in order to commit violence. Also, the...

    The relevance of Berserk's opening scene

    I don't mean to be rude, but Guts had to have a means of sensing and tracking her similar to his pursuit of the other apostles...I don't think he just stripped, whipped his dick out and said come and get it. If he was able to locate her and recognize her as an apostle to have sex with her then...

    The relevance of Berserk's opening scene

    Clearly he did not engage with the Apostle out sexual desire, and I do not remember stating this in any way shape or form. And certainly I believe it was intended to maliciously subvert and destroy the apostle-Guts has never had a problem simply using brute force so I would find it hard to...

    The relevance of Berserk's opening scene

    Guts's relationship with vulnerability or "intimacy" in sex is pretty clearly laid out in the choking scene with Casca where it's shown that he has a mutual coping strategy and deep rooted fear at assuming the position of abuser. It only makes sense that the way he is able to engage sexually...

    The relevance of Berserk's opening scene

    Personally, I wouldn't say "utter disregard for himself" as his quest for vengeance is ultimately self centered, fulfilling a personal need for satisfaction of destructive urges, even if that includes self destruction. I do agree, however, that the self hatred and self harm are veiled but...

    Why use the demon baby's body as a vessel?

    Yeah, and there's a certain poetic justice that entails-if what essentially symbolizes Griffith's violation of Casca ends up contributing his demise

    Berserk: The Motion Comic Episode 1 - The Black Swordsman (Part 1)

    It's not as they entirely redacted the scene- they included a page which implied its presence, as Curry mentioned, and considering the fact that the vast majority of the people who will watch this are already Berserk fans I don't think much, if anything, is lost. In any case, I was very...

    The relevance of Berserk's opening scene

    I spend most of my Berserk-related time in Discord and have noticed a certain issue come up pretty often- the irrelevancy and "out of character"-ness of the opening scene of Berserk in which Guts is shown having sex with an apostle before destroying it. After reading through the a recent thread...
