Yeeeeeep, which makes me wonder even more why they bothered to introduce him in episode 1 at all. I guess they'll skip the scene with the brigands this time around? Still, really puzzling choices were made with this TV series. All that mess could have easily been avoided.Earthlingzing said:Are they introducing Isidro again with the Bakiraka?
Guts' voice actor bothers me more than Puck's. He sounds like he's phoning it in a lot of the time to me, which drains a lot of scenes of their emotional impact. And it's not like we can count on the facial expressions of the 3D models to help with that either. The part when he did the Beast of Darkness could have been worse I guess, but it didn't wow me.Earthlingzing said:And does anyone else think that Puck's voice is really weird?
Not sure what you mean here. It's pretty much the same content, only shittier.Earthlingzing said:I liked how they toned down the Mozgus stuff, overall this was a pretty good episode.
Yep... And Puck talks about being eaten, but the scene of Erika sleeping while holding him lasts a split-second on screen, it's so fast that unless you know what's going on, you can't possibly get it.Androyd said:Like Rickert's reaction to Puck... just copied the manga scene but without the back story, it has to come across as strange.

Personally, I think people have just gotten use to it, as opposed to getting better. I'd recommend watching it under the condition you're wanting to experience Berserk, but are feeling too lazy to actually reread the manga at that particular time.Griffith said:Or, hey, tell me if I'm wrong and should give it a second chance. I see that it's gotten "better" according to many here, but to the level it's genuinely watchable and not just out of fealty to Berserk?
I won't watch this episode or the next ones, but based on the first three, I don't think that watching this is in any way "experiencing Berserk". Unless you meant experience what it's like to go berserk.Androyd said:I'd recommend watching it under the condition you're wanting to experience Berserk, but are feeling too lazy to actually reread the manga at that particular time.
You're aware a full month passes between the Eclipse and the time Guts leaves Godot's place, right? It makes no sense whatsoever for an apostle to just keep the knife in like that, not to mention the fact it means he never returned to his human form... And it's also in the wrong eye. Maybe it's an homage to the Eclipse, but I'm pretty sure the viewer is supposed to assume Guts just threw the knife.ApostleBob said:Small side note: I like how the chicken apostle still had the knife in it's eye that Judeau had thrown. A nice touch
Isn't she supposed to sound like that? I mean yeah, her voice did sound a little young. But keep in mind this is a Japanese anime. Be prepared for the voices of a female to stab your ear drums, especially someone who has the mentality of a vegetable.Gamehowitzer said:My worst fear has come to bear fruit. They made sound like a retard.
While it certainly is nice that we saw considerably fewer changes and retcons this time around and that they're just sticking to what was in the manga, the fact that they shoved a number of characters, concepts, events, and ideas in without any real explanation is just going to leave fresh viewers completely lost. Which isn't automatically a bad thing, but it runs contrary to Kurosu's previous claims that the series was standalone. If he honestly believes that, then he's deluded, and if new viewers were never supposed to be a factor in this series, then why were all the goddamn changes in the previous episodes made in the first place? It seems like nobody knows who they're making this show for.buttonmasher said:People are mentioning things in the episode that don't make sense or might be lost of those who have not read the manga. This is going to continue to happen for the rest of this run. I actually like they way they are handling it - instead of trying to retcon or shove extra footage in, just do the manga and move on whlie letting the chips fall where they may. If they continue to adapt the series then this particular problem should resolve istelf.
