Well this is ironic. For what it's worth, I didn't down-vote you. But you just killed your thread right there.Tass said:

Berserk torture rooms are always fun to read through. Volume 18, p. 171, a nice shot of a boob being pulled apart by the breast ripper, and then some poor individual who had the Pear of Anguish inserted inside them http://imgur.com/swApkXRfavole said:So if none are outdoing the eclipse (which is the most traumatizing event out of them all for Guts) then for me it's not too much.
It's not about internet points. I just take issue with the fact people downvote over a completely innocuous question with slang in the thread title. If you guys want deep academic discussion about Berserk's themes, start a thread, I'm not shy, I've got a lot to say.Eluvei said:You made so little effort to create this thread, that it required someone to ask its meaning in the first reply, and you complain about people not wanting to talk to you?

That's indeed a crucial element of Femto's incarnation that so-called "Griffith apologists" conveniently skip over when discussing his motives. The man who caused thousands to be massacred so that he could step foot in the world again -- why, of course, it's the savior that humanity was waiting for!Tass said:Just the idea that all that horrific, unimaginable pain and suffering that went into incarnating this angelic figure is such a trip.
I agree, this was one of the disturbing scenes I mentioned, but still, since we're following Guts' story and the eclipse was way more heart-wrenching on top of the violence (because we knew the characters who were sacrificed, Casca's rape was hard to bear with and same for Guts' desperation) I still think the eclipse doesn't have a real equivalent so far, even if other arcs do have their share of disturbing moments.DANGERDOOOOM said:
Well the Daka and Pishacha would have been useful (devastating in fact) against a normal human army. But they were hindered by Guts & friends in Vritannis, and then apostles came along and ravaged them. I think it makes sense: Ganishka was trying to create a "demon army", and he did. But Griffith's own demon soldiers were far superior, in the same way that he himself was to Ganishka.Lithrael said:Making the Daka grossed me out worse than the trolls' nasty reproduction. Not least because then it turned out that the Daka were next to useless.
