It'd have be to be a failure of unprecedented proportions for the Eclipse to not be a shocking sequence...Death May Die said:Hearing that the Eclipse still shines through even a half hearted movie trilogy, just goes to show you the gravity of how strong of a scene it is. It might very well be one of the most shocking sequences ever created.
Anyway, on what are you basing the Eclipse in this adaptation "shining through?" That Kotaku review? Because the first impressions I read (on a board frequented by actual Berserk fans) was that the Eclipse wasn't as grabbing as either the manga or the TV series.
