ApostleBob said:A last note, it's weird that they still haven't introduced Puck's healing ability. It seems like something you'd want to establish early on here.
Rupert Sinclair said:I actually think being closer to the source material made this one worse for me, it was difficult to watch for most of the running time if not all of it. I don't know guys, I'm having a really hard time being positive about this.
Aazealh said:Well the show's bad as a whole, I don't think anyone will deny it. It's so low budget it hurts and the visuals, animations, sound effects, music and editing all leave a lot to be desired. But once we've established that, either we stop talking or we try to find the silver lining. Since it bears the name of Berserk, I at least prefer to see it follow the story somewhat faithfully rather than take wild liberties that'd make it even worse. I mean you saw what happened with the first episode, right?
Rupert Sinclair said:You guys must have been hardened by watching those movies, while I skipped those making this my first really crappy Berserk adaptation experience. So please understand this one just really had me feeling the pain. I think it just hit closer to home whereas the first episode was just so weirdly surreal and different I don't think I could even process it. I'm interested in seeing this next episode and how Miura has reworked things though. That at least should be interesting.
Aazealh said:Basically, you need to bury the hope you might have once had that this would do Berserk justice.
Rupert Sinclair said:Oh I never had that hope. But I don't think anything really could anyway. It's a masterpiece few understand or appreciate in the way it should be appreciated. This all just makes me realize how great the manga is all over again I guess.
The Beast of Darkness said:There is a bit of improvements, but I still can't bear this 3D... during the whole episode, my main thought was: "Why haven't they done the whole thing in 2D ?".
Anyway, it was watchable.
