Berserk Saga Project News

Death May Die

"That day you left, that's when I knew."
Just some more stuff from the movie promotion book. Found them while browsing ebay sales.





Had to stop myself there on the 2nd one because I was reminded of about something I vaguely remember....

 
I remember how happy I was when I learned about the new Berserk anime project.

Now I wish it never happened.

:judo:

At least I hope the anime project will make people interested in the manga and so Berserk will gain more fans.

My posts are better.

Aha, great. For a moment i thought that our Griffith had done it.
Yeah, I'm a bit envious myself. Excellent stuff, and not to step on the podcast, but we did discuss how movie 3 seems to be a tipping point for previously more generous fans. I think the reality that these characters aren't showing up and it's not going to get better "later" is setting in.

Also...

I will never see these movies, i'm better than all of you.
Bravo! I had been waiting for this, and your delivery didn't disappoint. :ubik:
 
I asked the guy who reviewed the third movie on myanimelist.com a few questions. Some of his answers were a little vague, but I didn't want to nag him with more questions.

-Apparently Godot is just mentioned by name in the movie, and Erica is introduced as his granddaughter. :???:

-Guts gets the Dragonslayer after the credits.

-Judeau, Corkus, and Rickert have larger roles compared to the other two movies. Judeau in particular.

-As others have mentioned, the apostles attacking the Hawks at night was taken out. But he said there was another apostle scene that was kept in. I'm not sure if he meant that brief scene with the Snake Baron impostor or something else... Maybe Guts killing the apostle with the Dragonslayer will be shown after the credits. Probably not though... :sad:

-I asked him about Rickert, but all he said was that he watches Zodd and the Skull Knight fight. He didn't explain how he got there or what he was doing before that part.

-And he said the movie ends around the scene with Guts and Casca's child.

Demon child in the movie,right?

Thanks for the info, Sam. Good thinking about asking the guy. Kinda crazy that we still don't have detailed info about some of these things...

Pretty sure Sam knows about that since he said: "I'm not sure if he meant that brief scene with the Snake Baron impostor or something else..."

He didn't directly answer my question, but I'm pretty sure he meant that the child is in. I'm tempted to ask him again to clarify...
I know a person that saw the movie and she tell me that the Child isn't in it.

Hmmmm. I kind of asked him two questions at once, so he might have been saying "yes" to my question about them including the scene with Guts running out of the cave and ripping his bandages off... But his exact words were:

"Yes. If you want to know, that is sort of the ending after he talks to skull knight after fighting all the ghosts trying to take his body."

Perhaps he's just a dirty little liar and needs a good smackin'. :femto:

anyway,so it's pretty much confirm that there won't be Snake Baron at all in future films? :sad:

I've actually seen it reported that the R-18 version's runtime is 107 minutes, and the R-15 version is 113 minutes. (source: http://www.109cinemas.net/nagoya/schedule/timeSchedule.shtml?date=2013-02-09) Can you make sense of that? :ganishka:

:???: hmmm well in a nutshell :puck: I'm guessing to see everything they animated (they might have withheld content for the BD release) you'd have to see both versions and of course the studio would make more money. Well probably get the full version on home video. I could explain better but its really difficult for me to type on the computer.

Those boring parts where things aren't getting killed or where characters aren't showing any skin had to go. Necessary cuts for the R-18 experience :troll:

Seriously though, this is most confusing. The Japanese Film Classification and Ratings Committee also have the same runtimes for the two versions, 1 hour and 53 minutes for the R-15 version and 1 hour 47 minutes for the R-18 version. What gives?

Of interesting note is that the R-18 version was given its rating a month before the R-15 version was accepted.

It was probably done intentionally as a marketing tactic to give people a over 18 a reason to see both versions. I'm sure a full version will be released on blu-ray.

Or maybe they had to cut something important for content, and took the liberty to add something original to "better" tell the missing story, and it happened to be longer. Perhaps instead of Femto raping Casca, they gleefully ballroom dance around the eclipse for 6 minutes.
