    What is up with that beast inside Gutts? It says it's been around since he was born in one of the chapters. Is it a manifestation of him wanting to survive, or is it something else? Because it seems to be something not connecting to God or the Apostles at all.

    - Probably just something that seemed to be from the brand. It wants to kill Caska, so it can be from there.

    I think it's another spiritual being seperate from the godhand. It just seems to have an effect on guts that allows him to do crazy ass shit. Guts survives some insane situations, I'm glad schierke and the rest are there to keep his ass sane and alive.

    No prob Sano. But yeah, I'd really rather wait and get the manga at the comic stores that download them. Its not that I don't like crappy quality scans or fans tranlating it, its just that I want a good translation so I know I won't get fucked over when it comes to important things like names getting changed because of romanizations or anything like that. But thats cool.

    I really didn't expect Serpico to become that much of a great character. I always thought of him as like.... an average joe of some sort. But he just kicks ass from my point of view, and I can see that most everyone here totally agrees. Hmmm.... Saying that, I hope to see the characters grow. Oh, and I only read a few scans... and skipped way too far ahead for my tastes. I recently just decided to stop reading scans. For the reason above really. I can't wait till I get a fucking JOB!!!!! Then I'll be able to support my BERSERK habit and get the manga already!!!!!
    If only I knew how to combo, I would probably actually be a decent fighter.

    I was reading that in one of the interviews with Miura, he says that the story is only about 1/4 to 1/3rd of the way through. And has every intention to keep the manga going for another 30 years. So those with out patience, this may not be the manga for you.

    Also for those that say the manga doesn't go anywhere. Of course you feel that way. Anytime you read one chapter a week to a month (a couple months in Miuras case), you're going to feel that it moves very slowly. But if you try reading volumes back to back you'll typically see the story move quite well.

    Awesome AMV.

    Also that ugly fetus thing that popped out of Caska's cooch,was that Guts and Caska's kid and Griffith just fucked it up when that incident happened,or is it Griffith's kid?

    It's Guts+Caskas kid according to the Skull Knight just disfigured by the Eclipse.


    Also thanks ShinjiGohan for the info, 30 years later I can look back and tell my kids how badass this series was (or at least hope it was badass that far ahead hahahah).

    Greatest line that never made it into the Anime

    Griffith - "I want you......Gatts...."
    Gatts - (crazy shocked anime face) "Are you homo?"


    I LOVE IT!!!

    I'm going to get angry remarks about this :lol:

    But I'm a Griffith fanboy.

    My favorite characters, in order:

    1. Griffith
    2. Zoddo
    3. Berserker Armor Guts


    Amid all the violence, BERSERK has some of the most stunning and beautiful scenes that I've read in manga.

    My favorite scenes (In no order)

    -Bonfire of Dreams. I get emotional every time I read that scene

    -Battle at the Hill of Swords. Epic...One of the best battle scenes ever

    -Mule meeting Griffith at night, with a sea of stars. Another scene I get emo when I read through. It's a very beautiful scene

    -Watching the Emperor's army move and fight (That last army fight was INSANE. It was about 10x bigger than the last fight scene in Return of the King)

    -Guts vs Grunbeld. I get chills down my spine reading through this fight.

    -Guts beconing the Trolls to come fight after he ran out of arrows....:lol: Rapage.

    -Last fight with Guts vs Serpico. Guts using raw power to smash through columns.
    Seriously, BERSERK has the best 2 page spreads, hahahah

    I think BERSERK has been around since 1989. I might be off by a year or two. I know that Miura had thought of the manga since college.

    You seem to have missed the whole point of Berserk... As someone mentioned before, the anime leaves you very blueballed. It actually got me reading the manga. Griffith had his reasons for his actions, as is explained in the anime, although manga goes much deeper.

    I read all of that shit and I still think Griffith is a douche bag. Anyone who sacrifices all of his friends to hell is a piece of shit in my opinion. XD

    I love Berserk and I just got up to manga 18 Is skull knight.com still doing translations ? I haven't checked it out myself, but I heard is was a good site a few years ago.

    - The fetus story is pretty nasty, however, it's ironic how it turned out. I mean, seriously, that was so left field. But then, it was probably planned to go out this way. Prophecies and what not. It had to happen. He's pretty vital that guy. Alot more than Puck, even though Puck is just as important. Actually, he isn't, but he's hella funny with the Robin Williams potential.

    - Gatts versus the Kushan assassins was awesome for a human to human conflict. Next to the Kelpi vs. Serpico. That was another good monster vs human fight. Wicked swordplay indeed. Ishidoro also. He seems to be a good sport when it comes to being a keen apprentice of Gatts. Almost like a good replacement for Rickert and a small replacement for Colkus. Horny, funny, determined, ignorant and full of win.

    - Btw... is Caska... a Kushan? She looks like she is complexion-wise.

    wat

    Are we even talking about the same manga here? I can understand if you think the current chapters are slow, but to say that the series isn't going anywhere is kind of silly. It's a little slow now because they are in the process of 'going somewhere' and their current situation doesn't really allow Guts to be slicing a shitload of demons in half. Before this, we had TWO huge battles back-to-back and a major plot revelation, and you can bet a lot of shit is going to happen once they reach their destination. Hell, we don't even have to wait that long; judging by the last page of the latest chapter, some serious poo-poo is about to go down right now.


    end of ch.287.

    Yea, true.. true, my apologies for the ignorant post sir!

    If any of you guys have a DC, go try to find BERSERK: Gut's Rage

    It's quite a good game (hard on some parts) and the it's actually an official chapter in BERSERK that wasn't in the manga. It is endoursed by Miura himself, and sometimes he pays homage to it, like when Puck was looking at a Mandragora root.

    Your right about it being hard. I almost died on the FIRST part!!!!! And then that first boss fight was fuckin insane!!! I was like, "If this is the first boss then..... HOLY FUCK!!!!!!!!"

    Yea, later parts of the game is pretty retarded. I was ranting a bit about it on the "Hardest game" thread, in the part where Guts needs to escape the corridors with roots. I couldn't pass the 2nd corridor.

    My bro played that game before I read BERSERK (He played it in 2001, I believe) and he was pretty good. He passed the corridor part, and finished the game on Easy and Normal. He couldn't pass Zoddo on Hard though.

    Bear Ryoma - Funny AMV! :rofl:

    Yeah Guts Rage is a great game. I loved how they got Michael Bell, Duke's voice from G.I. Joe for Guts. That was one of the best video game dubbing choices ever.

    Great thing about it too is that is if you have all of the cut scenes save you can watch it all over again without playing the game again. It takes about an hour or so to watch it all.

    I beat it on Easy, Normal and Hard back in the day. Zoddo had patterns if you played it long enough. Ditto with those roots. Back in those days everything was patterns, just learn what you have to do in all given situations and wash, rinse repeat, never give up and never surrender and sooner or later you get past everything (even if it might take a while).

    With Zoddo you can also practice all you wanted playing the boss mode too where you can fight him on the fly. Though I'm not sure if that was one of the things you unlocked after beating hard mode or not, it's been a while.

    I still have my save and have everything unlocked. One of the last things I got was the Puck minigame ha ha that is fun.

    Guts Rage > PS2 Berserk game


    PS2 Berserk game was a HUGE LET DOWN. Also the voice actors totally sucked, it made me glad Berserk wasn't getting any more anime time. Not even the best Japanese VA could do this series justice.

    Also, I would like to add my membership to the "Griffith is lil fucking bitch" club. I admit if you look it over he had his reasons, but he still deserves a big cold peice of Iron through his chest for doing it anyway.

    Bear Ryoma, I don't think Caska is kushan cause she's like working in the fields of some village when that one lord gets her. Well.... maybe she's Kushan blood but not culture.

    I'd like to join in with the FUCK Griffith mob. I loved Femto's design in his first appearance, but when he raped a pregnant woman after sending his entire army to Hades in a demon buffet that pissed me off.

    Anyways, puck's importance has seriously waned(I hate how he's become primarily comic relief, seeing as how he was Guts' first new friend after the events of the Eclipse). If he wasn't around, Guts would also likely be dead(Having a supply of Elf Powder is indispensable against apostles).

    My favorite characters are Guts, Zodd(not Zoddo, though that was the name on a lot of earlier Berserk merchandise, just like how Guts used to be spelled like it was pronounced, Gatsu), and the Skull Knight.

    @Gabriel: the site's become skullknight.net, and yes they still are doing translations.

    Endless: I think Berserk came out in 1988 actually, if not the prototype.

    One thing I really want to see in Berserk is the clarification of the King Gaiseric(who's so obviously Skull Knight it stinks like an anime con)story. Knowing the nature of the 4 "Angels"(CoughGodhandCough) who ended Gaiseric's empire, there is no way in hell that the story went down just like Charlotte recalled it.

    Good stuff from everyone.

    I never really liked Femto as a character.

    To defend Griffith a bit :bgrin: :
    I'm not saying the Eclipse was good in any way; it was evil, terrible, and disturbing. It was one of the only points in the manga where I needed to physically take a break from reading because it was "so much".

    However, Griffith's as a character, is amazing. I think he is probably the most charismatic and romantic characters I have read in manga (or any story, for that matter). Not knowing his past, I bet almost everyone here would want to follow Griffith (if we were in BERSERK, of course).
    He's a noble hero, divinity in human form. People are so overwhelmed with emotion when talking to him, they break down and cry. I like Griffith a lot because of his character, not because of his actions.

    Also, in the state that he was in, he couldn't do anything at all, and that would of been the end of his dream.

    If Guts was in Griffith's shoes....he would choose to die.
    HOWEVER, IIRC, Guts himself did say: (one of the best quotes in BERSERK, I feel)

    "You can't walk at all, if you are afraid of crushing the ants"


    @BEWD: Thanks for the clarification. Also, I forgot whether Miura or Puck said it, but Miura keeps Puck in to help the manga from being too dark.

    @sano: Yea...the roots kept killing me. Either flatout 1-hit death, or it glanced me, taking off 85% health, stunning Guts, and then getting comboed by the next root, killing me :annoy:


    yea...I miss the old Band of the Hawk also..
    Especially Pippin. He was awesome. He died a terrible and sad death. :sad:

    Out of the new characters, my favorite is Shierke, then Irvine, the demon archer.

    OK, you do realize that this makes you a wuss?:wgrin::wgrin: i kid, i kid
    The Eclipse was awesome, the despair so clearly visible you felt it yourself... My favourite part so far (up to vol. 15). I understand Griffith, and would probably do the same in his situation. Before I get flamed with "You'd sacrifice your friends?!", I'd like to point out, that in the event of an Eclipse, me getting shed loads of power for the small price of the people around me, yes, I'd do it. But... since I really don't see that happening in the near future, I wouldn't get to upset about it.

    Anyway, played the DC game myself. Never knew other people shared my feelings on those damn roots:arazz::rofl::rofl:

    this manga is the only one that i see all kinds of crazy stuffs beside the killing, like gay rape, pedo, demon rape and incest..btw i think its reasonable for Miura for being slow, there are so much stuffs to draw in this manga, all the details of blood and gore, so many horses, monsters and soldiers killing each other on battle field, this manga is always packed with actions..i wouldnt supprise if each chapter come out every 3 month if it was drawn by any other artist..

    My favorite Berserk charactes are:

    1. Guts
    2. Guts
    3. Guts
    4. Guts
    5. Guts

    :rofl:

    Serpico, Farnese, Corkus(whiney characters are a riot lol), Zoddo and the Skull Knight are all very cool don't get me wrong but it's all about Guts. Griffith I dunno, I hate him so much I like him. :tup:

    Never played Sammy's Berserk game. I don't really bother importing a game when it follows the same story as a manga or an anime that I already read / watched. Now if it was a brand new story like the Rurouni Kenshin RPG of a few years back I most def would of imported.

    I will say that if the game did come out in the US chances are I would of gotten it, I even signed the petition to bring it over but as you know those never work anyway.

    Very glad to hear the game sucked. :rofl:

    Most of the time when I import it's for a fighting game, playing any other kind of game in a language you can't understand comes with it's own set of headaches. Thank goodness for Gamefaqs though when it comes to getting through games like that.

    Wow 30 more years of Berserk man when I'm in a retirement home if the orderly accidently gives my subscribed volume of Berserk to Grandma Snooty Snoot I will bop him in the back of his head with my walker. DON'T MESS WITH MY BERSERK! :rock:

    dammit!!!! I have to play the game again!!!! Its been so long!!!! But yeah, in 30 years, I'll be reading BERSERK, and then showing my grand kids how awesome manga is. And then when I go senile, I'll be screaming quotes from BERSERK swinging a "sword" (my cane) around wacking random people. And then get a heart attack from how gruesome a chapter is while I lay in my death bed.

    I can't wait!!!!!!

    I enjoy Griffith's character a great deal.

    Not in the manner that I like what he did, but they way Kentaro Miura presents him is just amazing.

    As far as Gatts, well he's just a bad ass......that's all there is to it.....

    Guts Rage > PS2 Berserk game
    I haven't played either of them, but this thread is the only place I've ever seen people say anything good about Guts' Rage. Maybe it has a really deep combat system that only SRKers can appreciate. Or something. :rofl:

    Can't say anything about the gameplay, but the PS2 game looks really nice at least. The counter animations during the boss fights look awesome.
