General thread to discuss this classic manga by Kentaro Miura.

Let's begin with good news!

A three-parts movie based on the Golden Age Arc has been announced. The first one will be titled Berserk Ōgon Jidai-Hen I: Haō no Tamago (or Berserk Golden Age Arc I: Egg of the Supreme Ruler), and it's scheduled to be released January 2012.

I can't believe that this is actually CG.

THIS IS HOW IT IS SUPPOSED TO LOOK!

I'm not usually a fan of CG in any way, but yes, this one looks really smooth and well done (until now I've seen something like this only in Hellsing oav 8. And T&B, maybe).

I'm a huge Berserk fan, but part of me is a little sad that it's not hand drawn cell animation. Part of what makes Berserk so awesome is the jaw dropping horrifically gorgeous artwork. That detail is lost somewhat with CG.

And . . . I would kill to see a "Lost Children" arc. It's still my favorite arc of the manga followed by the Holy See arc.

I think it's the best solution actually.
CG allows for a higher quality standard with the same budget as a hand-drawn film, so we will see less quality fuckups, which really is closer to the manga then imo.
A hand-drawn project could never really stand up to the art of the manga, except if you go for a Redline-like mammoth project.

Sherrinford
September 27th, 2011, 07:30 AM
What I fear is that this project will only cover the ("overly") famous Golden Age Arc... until now there's no info on a possible series of film (or oav, I'd be happy with that too) that goes beyond the Eclipse...

Also... does Caska calls Gatsu "berserk" in the PV?... I don't know if this is a facepalm or not...

I think she actually says something like "I LOVE BERSERK". Guess the PV isn't trying to be totally serious.

I'm looking forward to this so much. I'm a huge fan of Berserk.

I have, however, stopped reading the manga. I'm waiting for a few more arcs to be completed before I go on a binge and re-read the whole thing.

Waiting chapter after chapter is too much for me.

Sherrinford
September 27th, 2011, 07:43 AM
I can't say she's wrong... after all, how can you not love Berserk?

(I really hope that her VA was just promoting the franchise, and that line isn't really in the script...).


Waiting chapter after chapter is too much for me.

At this pace...

I'll leave only one thing to my great-grandson... the only thing that I couldn't accomplish during my life... the only thing that I couldn't see with my own eyes... Berserk's last chapter.

Uberchoco
September 27th, 2011, 07:45 AM
Even Berserk characters love Berserk, it's just that good.

She won't say that in the script, didn't you notice how the music just stopped playing to add, uh, comical effect maybe? The second PV appears to be made in the same fashion but I don't really get what they say, huh.

I know why they're using CG in this. It's because if they tried to copy the art quality of the manga we'd have another Redline on our hands.

Sherrinford
September 27th, 2011, 05:18 PM
The art quality of the manga is a drawn, black-and-white quality. You can't compare details quality with smooth animation.

And I think that CG is used mostly to drop the costs.

September 28th, 2011, 08:28 PM
Eh, you're right.

Even thanks to the anime, the Golden Age arc is just spotlight-stealing. The same things happens with JoJo's Bizarre Adventures: Stardust Crusaders.

Which is a pity, because Berserk (and JoJo :3) really needs a full adaptation IMO.

The problem is, I doubt this is just the first part of a more wide project...

Oh well, let's just sit back and enjoy this adaptation (that doesn't seem bad at all).

ItsaRandomUsername
September 28th, 2011, 08:33 PM
Indeed, it is but a pity.

Why can't there be a bazillion episodes of JoJo just like with Bleach and Naruto? That'd be sick as all hell. >:

Sherrinford
September 28th, 2011, 08:44 PM
And the worst part is, there's no real reason why there shouldn't be an anime of JoJo.

It's famous, and its story arcs are all concluded, almost like autonomous storylines... it should be perfect to animate. But yeah, considering what they did with the Phantom Blood movie - which was so bad apparently, Araki forbade the DVD release. I heard there was no Speedwagon-how can you exclude Speedwagon, c'mon! -.

Anyway, I can see why they're going again for the Golden Age Arc... they surely can't begin from the latest arcs, and since Miura has begun drawing once more, maybe they want to attract younger readers that didn't grew up with the 90's anime...

ItsaRandomUsername
September 28th, 2011, 08:47 PM
Depending on how popular the movies are, we just might get to see a rejuvenation of interest in Berserk.

And if that happens, and then the studios get prompted to further the story by animating the later arcs... ^_^

Sherrinford
September 28th, 2011, 08:55 PM
YOu know what really could rejuvenate Berserk? A Miura that doesn't put it on hiatus for months every five chapters. *snerk*

I hope so, but I doubt that even if they are successful, we will see something else...

Oh, well let's not despair too much, it can still happen after all.

Bloble

Well about that... I see three possible reasons he takes so long to draw the chapters.

1. He's getting old.

2. He's not as good as he used to be.

3. It takes so long to draw because his art quality is through the freaking roof, and in the time it takes him to draw one page of Berserk Kubo Tite would be able to write an entire chapter of Bleach.

deviatesfish
September 28th, 2011, 10:05 PM
I'd sacrifice the art for the story, honestly. That is not to say he should do what the artist for HunterxHunter did, because that was horrible. But I'd rather see weekly updates than super awesome art that takes so long to draw. Maybe he should get more assisstants...?

Then they should adapt from the later arcs.

I mean, I would kill to see the Lost Children Arc animated. When I tell everyone how much I love Berserk, I always how them the panel with Jill standing with her back against Guts' chest and they're surrounded by darkness and the demons hunting Guts. That one page is just so darkly gorgeous that it gets me every damned time.

Not to mention it's a little sad too.

Also, is Guts loli bait? Jill then Shrike . . .

He should stop playing fucking [email protected] is what he should do.

Yes, Idolmaster was the reason Berserk was delayed for all of that time. He got addicted to it. True fucking story.

Usually, people improve as time goes on. And he has assistants. And then there's Idolmaster...


3. It takes so long to draw because his art quality is through the freaking roof,

True. That is also why Berserk is published in a monthly magazine, IIRC. But to draw 18 pages doesn't take months and months.


Then they should adapt from the later arcs.

If they adapt from the later arcs younger viewers and readers wouldn't know what is going on. They have to begin from the first arc. Let's hope someone will animate the follower arcs someday.

http://www.sentrygun.com/ascension/MIURAAAAA.jpg

Personally, I've always been of the opinion that Berserk chapters take so long to be published because Miura secretly sacrificed all his assistants to his crimson behelit...

Miura can only make such a sacrifice once the project fails completely. That's actually why he delays it. He wants it to falter and collapse, that way he can finally achieve it with that last, demonic, blood-soaked sacrifice.

Personally, I'm stuck waiting for like, volume 11. None of the local shops carry it past volume 10, unless it's past volume 30, so I'm missing out on so much awesome it hurts.

I meant in the trailer itself. I wasn't complaining or anything. Have you any idea if they're going to stick to the Band of the Hawk arc or if it's going to go past that point? Because from what is I see so far, that's what they're doing. I'd like to see some Berserk Armour action but that's just me.

Also, did I come off as obnoxious with my earlier comment? I apologize if that's the case.

I don't know. Afaik, it's the usual BotH arc until now. Berserk turns "dark fantasy" later on.


I'd like to see some Berserk Armour action but that's just me.

We all do. But as I said before, Berserk suffers the same fate as JJBA. Stardust Crusaders, and nothing more (except between fans). Even more in my case, since I really liked the 90's anime, so while I'm glad for this, I would have preferred another arc. Not to mention that I remember this arc well, so I would watch it only for the animation.

But hey, if you want to approach the new generations, you have to start from the beginning etc.etc.

Anyway, I'm glad they're making it nonethless!


Also, did I come off as obnoxious with my earlier comment? I apologize if that's the case.

Sigh. Don't worry. Really, this is what I should have typed in my post. I knew that without intonation that question might have sounded pedantic.

Oh man, the wait for BD rips is going to be so damn painful. This looks absolutely glorious.

Guess Zodd is going to be the end of movie 1 with Guts's departure closing 2 and The Eclipse closing 3?

Just watched it. The copious usage of CG animation was a bit unsettling at first, but there were plenty of hand drawn moments as well. Overall, it was visually impressive. Miura's designs translated well, but they lacked a certain "oopmh". The music had its moments, but overall it wasn't as memorable as that of the original TV series.

Movie 1 covered from the moment Guts was recruited into the Band of the Hawk until Guts assassinates the Count and his son.

Movie 2 will probably cover the battles leading up to Guts leaving the Hawks and, apparently, Griffith's reckless decision that follows Guts's departure.

Movie 3 would probably then cover Guts's return and The Eclipse.

Movie 2 airs sometime this month in Japan. If the wait for BDs remains the same, we should be able to see Movie 2 between October or November.

Dear god so awesome. This covers my favorite part of the Golden Age arc where you get to see 100 Men Slayer Guts. Also, it really plays up the Guts and Caska romance too, which made me happy.

And I forgot how frigging awesome Caska was, which makes the next part even more sad.

It seemed decently subbed to me.

Also, in creepy hindsight, the both times we see Griffith or Femto having sex he's thinking of Guts the entire time.

With Charlotte he was thinking of Guts, and in the new movie how they animated the scene, it's both insanely sexy and creepy.

Then when he rapes Caska as Femto, he's making eye contact with Guts the entire time.

Finally bothered to watch the second movie. Shit was better than the first one by a large gap. The direction was really spot on during all of the key scenes, especially during Caska's rape flashback, 100 Man Slayer scene, Guts leaving the Hawk, Griffith's sex scene was freaking intense, and the scene where Guts and Caska talk during the party was great. Overall, this makes up for the previous movie's lackluster performance and more.

9/10 would recommend. It loses a point because the CGI is still pig disgusting :V

It also fucking amazes me that I still feel really attached to Griffith and get really into it in the final scenes of the movie, even though I know what he's going to do soon. Why can't I hold all this good writing.

Eclipse is still as hard as ever to watch.

Naturally, that was the highlight of the whole movie.

And please let that be a legit sequel hook at the end and not just them telling us all what we already know. I suspect it actually is but ya can't be too optimistic 'round these parts sometimes.

Break
June 28th, 2013, 03:49 AM
Great movie, kinda bummed out they cut out most of the escape from the capital and the fight against the dog/sasquatch apostle, although Guts not beeing already half-dead when entering the eclipse makes his climbing and asskicking a lot more believable at that part.

The birth of demon son was surprisingly cut off, i suspect theyll flashback that laterr.

Only two real issues i had with it were just coloring issues, with the Godhands skinshading in the manga i expected them to have a darker skin tone, somewhat like the tone the Noahs have in Dgrayman. Also im pretty sure Skull Knights eyes are supposed to glow blue, not red, though i could be wrong.

Next movie is probably gonna be the meeting with Puck, the SCaterpillar apostle, and Lost Children Arc, ending on meeting the churchknightguys and riding off in the sunset after traumatizing whatshername church-chick.

I hope they do Lost Children Arc, I really do.

You know how long I've waited to see that animated? Its probably my favorite arc in Berserk after Golden Age wraps up, followed by the one with the whores that shows Fairness is fucking nuts. With that one whore who was probably the most attractive woman in Berserk and road around with Skull Knight for a giant part of it.

true, true.
Although on the one hand i'd like them to get to animating Schierke and the Berserkr armor already, but on the other hand they really shouldnt gloss over that as its really good.

I guess wether or not Lost children arc gets animated is unsure; on one hand, it is really really good regarding the themes, story, and action, but on the other hand might be hard to get through because of the constantly butt-naked loli in there.

Well considering its a magical mothdemonform, they can probably just remove nipples and.....stuff until she goes into human form. Should not be too hard. Plus from the milisecond she flew through the scene in the last movie, as well as the short scene she appeared in the 90's anime, she's prolly gonna be glowing green anyways (or theyll just have that for her giant moth form)

I will say something that I just remembered. In the second movie when it showed the Griffith x Charlotte sex scene I watched it all the way through, but when Guts and Casca made love I opened another tab until I heard it was over. It's strange, with Guts and Casca it was a personal, genuine love thing, and I felt that even as fictional characters they deserved some privacy, but with Griffith's scene it was very dark and perverse and I just had to see what the hell.

Break
June 29th, 2013, 10:13 PM
I liked how natural Gut's and Casca's scene was; you could easily see how unsure and inexperienced they both were, especially Guts. No forced "manliness" just because, its something i like about Guts; despite all that muscle, he is a very natural-feeling, real-feeling, "human" character. He is no Duke Nukem, he is just a human Man who hppens to be strong.

Speaking of which the movies kind of omitted his whole "raped when eh was a kid" deal, in movie 1 it was just a short dream-sequence that one probably wouldnt understand as "he was raped as a kid", and they omitted his traumatic fallback due to it in the casca sex-scene as well.

Just marathoned them with a friend. 3rd movie was by far the best. Watching the eclipse animated almost scene for scene was awesome. And the fact they stopped using so much cg was just icing on the cake.

2nd movie was weird, they spent too much time dancing and fucking, when they could've done some of the stuff they didn't animate. Not to mention watching Charlotte orgasm just from her breasts getting touched was awkward as all fuck to watch. Griffith's hands confirmed better than his penis and everything Guts does, Casca and Charlotte confirmed.

People keeping going "IT'S JUST TO GATHER SACRIFICES!!!!!!111!!!" but that doesn't really follow. We don't know what the God Hand's overall goal is, and the World Transformation itself already gave them each a fantasy zone to call their own, Falconia is Griffith's. He wanted a castle and a country of his own, that's what this is, he's not just going to toss that aside. What would they even be sacrificed FOR? To incarnate the Idea of Evil, which A: still hasn't been recanonized (and hopefully never will be because it sucks) and B: even if it were, it should have been pulled over along with all the other shit from the astral world anyway. So either we're LOOKING at the God Hand's endgame plan and they're just sort of stuck in "what now" territory until Guts and co start fucking things up, or they have some larger goal that we really have no hints toward.

I'm really hoping we're done with movies, it forces them to cut too much. Doing the GA that was way fine for obvious reasons, but what they've said is that the Golden Age movies are just the start of a project to adapt the whole thing, I'm hoping the next stage is a proper series. Also for no more CG because that shit looked awful. I mean, no adaptation is actually going to look as good as the manga but come on.

One of my coworkers, for some weird reason, seems to hate Nina. This person: http://berserk.wikia.com/wiki/Nina in case you forgot, for "selling out" Casca, in order to save herself. I don't see why, though. Then again, compared to Liu Shan's "I don't miss Shu at all" speech, along with the fact that he actually kills Jiang Wei (historically, Zhong Hui's rebellion imploded in on itself, and both Jiang Wei and Zhong Hui were killed by the other rebels) during Dynasty Warriors 7 Xtreme Legends, in order to suppress Zhong Hui's rebellion in the name of Wei or rather Jin, Nina telling the inquisitors that Casca is "the witch" in order to avoid a rather pointless torture session (because the inquisitors would have just went after Casca anyway, should Nina have died) is nothing. The only way that Liu Shan is better than Nina is that Liu Shan knows exactly what he wants and therefore feels no regret or shame about his decisions. Confidence, yo.

Who's Farnese I forgotThe almost-horse-rape victim.
Also, if the manga explains this, then I apologize for the stupid question, but in terms of Griffith, I know that he wants to create his own kingdom, but does he actually have any "revolutionary" policy plans for it, save for the very diverse military, such as economics and agriculture? Cao Cao, for example, used tuntian.

Really? I can't remember any scene where she's explicitly getting off on her own pain.

She used to whip herself, this was around the time she caught Guts after his fight with Rosine. Forget the arc name but it's before rape horse and wanting to be split in 2.

And by it you mean Guts' dick, right? Seems the be the most important thing on her mind.

I was laughing all the time when she gave Guts a nice rubbing, then left his limp, wet sword hanging from a washing line.

Guts is too traumatized to get laid and with how it currently is I won't accept Farnese as the one to heal his dick

Luca's rad but I genuinely enjoyed Nina's parts in the arc and especially her conclusion

Weak characters are good. Unless they're Farnese, that fucking weirdo.I really shouldn't take my coworker's opinions too seriously. After all, he likes the themes in Naruto. I don't know his opinion on 3 Kingdoms stuff because he has never experienced it.

Bit late to answer to this now but whatever, I completely forgot about that.

Watching the anime... Why isn't Skull Knight the main character? Whenever Guts gets in over his head, he's always rescued by Skull Knight. There's no real sense of danger when Guts has such a powerful fallback. Also, that trope of the villain "playing" with the hero too much.

For those who read the manga, did Griffith ever make a kingdom yet, like with a rooted capital, rather than just a roaming band?

I don't suppose Miura would bore us with its economy, agriculture, or infrastructure, huh?

So far it's been all about how it's the last shining beacon of hope for mankind, how monsters and humans live together there in harmony, and how Griffith is basically Berserk!Jesus.

Man, I pissed myself off just describing it.

Sonia's bird analogies must be getting to me, but can the hawk soar as high as the phoenix (the phoenix is the symbol of Wei in Dynasty Warriors)?

You're thinking of the wrong never-ending manga, that's Vagabond.

I mean, he's never been Berserk Jesus, he just looks like it to the citizens of the kingdom. Almost every time we've seen him he's been a calculating bastard with a hard-on for being THE VERY BEST, LIKE NO ONE EVER WAS.

Well yeah obviously. But in the chapters with Rickert's group in Falconia it's all about him being Jesus and taming the demons and saving the world and blah-blah-blah (Of course, the people he's 'protecting' don't know that he's the asshat that unleashed the demonic horrors on them just so that he could build an ostentatious and tacky monument to his own ego).

And then Rickert Bitchslaps him, tells him to go fuck himself and prepares to wander right back into the hellscape he just escaped from because FUCK YOU GRIFFITH.

Is the name, "Femto", based on something historically? I notice that the King of Depravity in Kekkai Sensen is named Femt. Doesn't seem like a coincidence.

I don't think it is. All of the Godhand members have scifi-ish names anyway.

To people who don't like Griffith as a political leader, aren't the leaders or former leaders of the current major powers pretty bad themselves? The Midland king wants to bang his daughter, and the Kushan emperor was such a great threat that Guts and Zodd ended up working together. Do we know anything about the Chuder emperor?

So has Casca been fixed up in the head yet in the manga? I remember reading to the part where the Elf king (or is it queen?) appears.

Nope. The last few chapters were pretty good though, IMO, but it ended in a cliffhanger.
