That wasn't an interview but a comment he made in Young Animal #2 of the year 2001.Walter said:3 ) Just before the Millennium Falcon arc, there was an interview with you where you seemed to imply that you felt you were truly on the starting line of the series. If that is the case, how far along do you feel we are in the story at this point?
I think an interesting addition to this question would be to ask (assuming he would work on something after Berserk) whether he'd still like to do a historical manga, or if he would want to try something else (Sci-Fi?).Walter said:6 ) In the past, there have been interviews where you discussed your interest in creating post-Berserk projects. Is there any hope for these still, or would you rather retire after Berserk's conclusion, having invested most of your career in such a successful manga?
It takes about a week and a half to two weeks for parcels with standard shipping usually.Danat said:any rough estimate on how much time should it take for a letter to arrive in Miura's mailbox ? ;)
Reading this was irritating, even though I'm assuming you're not being serious.Danat said:and why was the most important question omitted: when can we expect the next berserk episode?
well i'd say 40% serious ;)Reading this was irritating, even though I'm assuming you're not being serious.
Miura's already answered that question long ago in the Illustrations File interview. He said that drawing is by far the most tiresome for him. However we've reached a very important point in the storyline right now, so that planning the story likely demands a lot of time and effort as well.Danat said:"what is the most tiresome in making berserk that takes a lot of motivation? developing the plot or implementing it (i.e. drawing)?
Too bad indeed. When someone has the pretension to interview an author, the very least they should do is to read up on what he's already answered in the past so as to avoid redundancy. It's a simple matter of respect.Danat said:meh, too bad i was lazy to read _all_ Miura's interviews.
We don't need to estimate that (like I just told you in my previous post), and your question wouldn't help with it anyway. Frankly there's little merit in what you've proposed and you're not helping your cause by arguing about it. Since the letter's already been sent anyhow, I suggest you to stop insisting on the matter. As soon as there's news about the next episode it'll be posted on the forum.Danat said:okay then i guess we cant ask him something that would help us estimate the time he spends on his work?
Well I do. In fact I think even worse things about it. Mean things.Danat said:and still i dont think that this question is _least_ important.
You'll get used to it. In the meantime you can always re-read the series, since I don't think you can appreciate everything it has to offer in two days' time.Danat said:At least for me as a reader which had recently read all berserk episodes in two days - its kinda hard to wait for next episode without any information about it ;).
