Angry The Berserk Thread

Since Berserk has come off its second-longest hiatus and will now resume via monthly installations, I think it's time it received its own thread. Discuss all things Berserk here! The manga, the anime, the movies, the games, the future of the franchise, etc.

I'll kick this thread off by posting my personal collection:

You would not regret it. Trust me on that. If you love Berserk as much as I do, purchasing the manga volumes is one of the best decisions you could make.

I love it at least as much as you.

The Golden Age arc is one of my favorite manga arcs ever. Also I really liked the animated movies. Haven't watched the anime though.

The Golden Age arc is one of the best arcs in manga ever. Seriously.

Second favorite arc for me is the Conviction arc.

Didn't like the movies. There were some things about them that I thought were good, though. The cameos of Puck, Serpico, and Farnese were well-done, for example. The movies just cut waaaay too much out, imo. Also, the battles relied on CGI (not even good CGI, either) to the point that it greatly detracted from my viewing experience. As far as an adaptation of the manga goes, I feel the anime was superior by a great deal.

It's a shame. I had really high hopes for the movies.

Agreed. I love Berserk, but I have lost a lot of steam with this series. It's published at a snail's pace and there's no end in sight or any sense of a grounded narrative direction. The Golden Age arc is indeed absolutely incredible. There is an actual arc and story to it. But the story does not feel as narratively tight as it once did.

Also agreed. To the benefit of the movies, Susumu Hirasawa did an incredible job with the opening theme of 'Aria.' At this point, his music has become synonymous with Berserk. While the music for the movies is good, as composed by Shiro Sagisu (Neon Genesis Evangelion), I would have preferred if Hirasawa composed all of the music.

Every anime adaptation of it has always missed something. Something special. Something... Wyald.

To be honest, he doesn't really add or do much for the story. He's mainly in the story to show the rising supernatural power creep and for him to be killed by Zodd to remind the reader of Griffith's "apostolic importance" that must be ensured.

I meant mainly for the amount of "edge" he adds, through his constant raping of woman.

It's fucking infuriating. They made the movies gorgeous, but for some ass-fuckingly retarded reason, made the anime entirely in absolute dogshit-level CGI! This series proves that ALL CGI bullshit needs to be banned from being used in anime. Period. End of discussion. It is a fucking cancer on animation.

Heard the same. Pity

Maybe it'll gel together...

In the meantime, I gotta write down which volumes of the manga I have and which I don't. I plan to hunt down the rest for cheap at Otakon next month.

For some odd reason, I seriously doubt that it will...

Yeah... they definitely went in cheap. Since I liked the last movies I expected the same but I was wrong... It was pretty funny in some parts, like the stuttering animation reminding me of early 90's 3D games. They used two models for the skeletons, one sharing the same exact wound with every other clone of it. Oh yeah and they made Casca white. I have no idea why.
