My posts are better.

Here's another manga to anime to new anime comparison:
Eh, yeah, here's a more flattering frame, but it's deceiving because mid-motion while the above is at rest. I don't know why they have him looking like the post-incarnation version of Griffith all the time in the new anime, especially here when he's still an adolescent, but they're not leaving much room to make him look more otherworldly when the time comes.
Hopefully you're absolutely right about all those things, but here's another "minor detail" that raises a twinge of doubt about their methodology.DirectDK said:There is NO WAY IN HELL they will cut out the fight with Boscone. Please remember, this movie is part of a trilogy, so the duel between Guts and Griffith won't happen until the 2nd movie. Meaning, the footage from that scene is still way in the early stages! In the early CMs, we were shown Casca covered with the wrong leaves. Now, in the YA pictures, we see Casca covered with ferns. So, obviously, this shows they can change these things at any moment.
I would not worry one bit about the sword in that screenshot. Worst case scenario, it's what Griffith said: the replacement sword is the same sword. But, I have my money on that they will change it when the time comes.
Let's have some faith people!
I wanted to do a shot for shot comparison like the one of Griffith above to this old woman that appears in the trailer, except no character completely fitting her description appears in the manga or '97 anime. Who is this supposed to be, or why aren't they more recognizable?
Well, first there's suspect numero uno, the woman at the spinning wheel Conrad and Ubik used to influence Griffith, she's the only one to appear in both the manga and '97 anime, and seems most likely:
They don't really look alike though aside from wearing bonnets, and no spinning wheel visible, so they've really altered things to the point of confusion if that's supposed to be her.
There's also the fortune teller that appears with Puck in volume 12 to consider though:
Maybe. The face and wardrobe don't quite fit (it's not like we haven't seen that before), but again it could be a variation of her. Except, she was holed up alone in a dark wagon, and in the trailer the old woman appears to be sitting in public since someone passes by (perhaps a young Griffith, confirming the above scenario?). In either case it's way off.
If you're thinking, "Griff, you big dumb knuckle nut, what about the the gypsy woman that gave Griffith his Beherit?" I'm with you, that makes sense given these discrepancies and doesn't go against type... but that's only because she doesn't actually appear in the manga at all, but was only added to the '97 anime:
They don't look alike either, but then they wouldn't have to.
So, either they've drastically altered the appearance of a character or added one. More seriously though, it's a bad omen if they're taking cues from the '97 anime; or worse, if they see its deviations from the manga as legitimate "faithful" alternatives to adapting Berserk, which would be convenient when considering how to handle Wyald and his giant spiky penis-tongue on the big screen. After all, what's easier to imagine, seeing that cut off in theaters or Wyald cut out of the movie altogether?
In any case, just something to think about.
