I've read many topics on Skullknight.net regarding Miura's influence. Guin Saga, Flesh and Bone, and a possible Hellraiser has been mentioned. But has anyone seen the movie Willow? This movie has some striking similarities to Berserk. I'm not mentioning this movie just because it has knights, wizards, fairies, and trolls. The character Madmartigan reminds me a lot of Serpico, not in looks, but personality. The character Sorsha reminds me of Farnese. You will have to watch the movie to understand the Sorsha and Farnese similarities. A baby with special powers (the moonlight child/demon child). And finally, the character General Kael is so damn close to the Skullknight and Gaiseric. General Kael wears a skeleton mask, and even carries a sword with thorns wrapped around the handle of the sword! That is way too close to be called a coincidence. Anyway, tell me what you guys and gals think. And also, check out the movie Willow, it's a kick ass movie.
