Honestly so do I. I hope humans and apostles and even spirits and monsters are living in harmony there. I hope that when Guts finally invades Falconia for whatever reason, he's seen as the bad guy and everyone comes together to try and stop him. Like an evil invading force trying to destroy their little paradise.

I LOVE it when they play with the traditional good guy/bad guy roles.

I genuinely have fun discussing Berserk and haven't really bothered doing so in a few years.

>>101518644

You know what the best part is? The absolute fucking kicker in all this? Lets suppose that after the last release of Gigantomakhia comes out that Miura does return to Berserk. Lets suppose that the first new chapter of Berserk after all this time ends with Guts stepping off the boat. /a/ would explode for days on end, but then what?

It will be an absolute minimum of two months before there's another chapter afterward. That's being optimistic, realistically we're looking at another 6~8 months between chapters. Eventually instead of being stuck on a boat, we'll be discussing how he's been on Elf Island for 5 years or some such.

During all this, Miura will randomly abandon the main plot on a whim to either do other miniseries or jump back in time like he did with the Spring Breeze Blossoms of Another Day chapters.

How much suffering can you endure, /a/?
>>
>>101526502
I'm not sure if I'd agree that Griffith is meant to be hated. I think Miura did a really good job of showing that Griffith's main motivations for accepting the sacrifice were guilt and sorrow, not ambition or a lust for power. I'd hesitate to even call him an antagonist at this point in the story, let alone a villain. Right now it feels like Guts and Griffith are just two separate characters going about their business, although they're probably destined to meet up again soon.

I'd be interested to hear why you disagree. I felt it was pretty explicit, the way it was shown that even though Griffith was very driven, his main weakness was that he couldn't deal with the loss of people under his command. The way Ubik and Conrad showed him visions of the comrades he has lost along the way, rather than promises of a powerful future made me feel sympathy more than any other emotion during the Eclipse. I don't think tragic events always require somebody to blame, but I can see why that's necessary for some people.
>>
>>101527607
I feel that's used as more subtext than anything. The main point about Griffith that the narrative has pushed from the start is his fierce ambition and unyielding personality. The feeling that he needs people is there, but it isn't spun in such a sympathetic way. More often he's treated as extremely possessive, treating the people around him like valuable objects rather than personal relationships. That's why Guts was treated as a noteworthy exception.

Griffith definitely has his good points, but he has his bad points as well.

There's also the current mystery of whether Femto is really the same as the old Griffith. Femto definitely has the same memories, but his personality has actually been far more aloof than Griffith's. Whereas old Griffith could be playful and had an almost childlike innocence, Femto Griffith has been very aloof and vague. Hardly displaying much of anything besides a mysterious air of tranquility and drive.

Femto's parallels to the Hawk of Darkness prophecy are difficult to overlook. It could be that Guts will ultimately be the dark hawk while Griffemto plays the role as the light, but that too remains to be seen.

There are many, many, MANY scenes throughout the story to support this type of duality between Griffith as both a thoughtful and innocent man and a ruthless and ambitious man. I feel the former has mostly been downplayed in favor of the latter because the author clearly wants the reader to see Griffith as Guts' foil and the antagonist of this story. To say he's entirely a good person and not really a bad guy seems dismissive of a large part of what makes him an interesting character.

Ahaha, I forgot to add "IN MY OPINION." Like I said earlier, it's just my take on things. Doesn't mean it's right.

One more thing I'd like to add: More than good or evil though, I think the main theme of Griffith's character is that he is "above" other people.

The exact same could be said of Guts.

I believe that Griffith is not pure evil, just as I believe that Guts is not pure good. I think that the story so far supports my opinion as they've both been shown as having significant dark sides as well as good qualities.
>>
>>101528580
That being said, Griffith IS the villain and Guts IS the hero, so it's not a perfect balance by any means and isn't supposed to be. In my opinion.

I don't know what dark side of Guts are you talking about.
Yes,he killed for Griffith,but that shit put him off the tracks when he realized what he had done.
>>
>>101528504
His soldier's had pledged their lives to Griffith so he saw that as a reason to sacrifice them. That's what makes the scene where all the past dead show up before Griffith.

Come on. He's the Black Swordsman who puts innocent people in harms way for revenge and bloodlust. He's going through a kind of rehab now with the loli and the rest of the crew, but they are explicitly the only reason he doesn't just snap and just destroy everything.

lel

He was on the boat to elf island for 8 years

you can only imagine how much time will be wasted on elf island because it will go through all the usual plot steps with establishing the location, minor characters coming out of the woodwork with some issues and giving us the context, then slowly the main plot kicks in and there's an arc villain that needs to be defeated and all the minor good guys get some fights and so on...

then they need to go back and reach Falconia which would take 10 more years irl time and that's a conservative estimate if we assume Guts beelines straight for Falconia and doesn't get distracted along the way with some additional subplots or related developments.
AND then he needs to defeat all the apostles, each of them being worthy of an arc AND fight the God-Hand and Griffith and perhaps more after that.
And all of this is not counting additional mini-bosses along the way (like for instance this Kraken thing on the boat).

>Puts innocent people in harms way
But what about at the beginning, when he tries to get Puck to stop following him so he wouldn't get hurt?
>>
>>101529095
I though we were talking about the Golden age Guts.
Well,it's hard to analyze Guts' character in the beginning of his Black swordsman journey.
He was a man in ruins. Everything he ever loved was dead. All he had was revenge.
But that changed with him realizing that Casca is the most important thing he possess. Not only his right for vengeance.

It sounds like we mostly agree, with only a few minor differences in perspective. One thing to note is that I don't think he saw himself as above other people in the same way. I think he could tell that he had a greater purpose, but it didn't lead to him thinking less of others.

He made an effort to remember the soldiers who died under his command, and even sold his body to lessen casualties, but he had to distance himself from the people he commanded. If he were to get too emotionally involved, then he couldn't have continued his role as an effective leader. I think part of why Guts was so special to him was that he could trust Guts not to die. It gave him somebody he felt secure in getting attached to.

Regarding his post Eclipse aloofness, I hope that's just because of how busy he was with the war. It'd be really nice to see him unwind for once, just to let us know the old Griffith is still there. I agree that it could go in a different direction, though.

A lot is up to speculation when the future of Berserk is concerned, but more than anything I just hope it doesn't turn into a story where Griffith is the typical bad guy and Guts is the typical good guy. I like them both a lot and genuinely think that even though both have been put through extraordinarily unfortunate circumstances, neither of them did anything too disagreeable and I wouldn't really blame them for anything.

Also I apologize for writing as much as I have.
>>
Is Skeletor dead?
>>
I need to see the story through.

If Guts were to kill Griffith now, somehow, all of the people in Falconia and pretty much everywhere would be fucked. Under Griffith, everyone is better off. No nation can oppress the people of Falconia.

Upon Griffith's death, every single Apostle and demon would turn on the people. It would be a slaughter-fest.
Unless Griffith has some sort of ulterior motive with the people of Falconia, everyone is fucked either way. If Griffith fucked up big time, the Apostles would just keep everyone in check under a rule of fear, anyway.

Guts can't do anything against Griffith anymore. Even he has the heart now to understand the consequences his actions would have on other people.
>>
>>101529345
To be clear, I'm not saying he intentionally puts people in harms way, but when they're between him and a demon, he loses himself and just disregards them. And unfortunately, until the rest of the crew showed up, his only response to this was to cover up his regret by continuing to fight and battle, which only made it worse.
>>
>>101529527
what if Guts and the fairies (if they were to become involved, they might as we really don't know the power level of the king yet) killed all the demons first?
I do understand that would require wiping out the entire human faction of the falconia army as well and guts never cared about a soldier's life especially if he's ordered by griffith to kill him.

Part of what I like about Guts is that he doesn't have any motivation. For most of the story he's just living for the sake of it, but at the same time he fights harder than anyone else to stay alive. He's kind of the exact opposite of Griffith in that way, and I think that's why Griffith was so drawn to him.

His lifestyle was something Griffith couldn't relate to at all, but he looked good doing it. It was the first example he had seen of somebody living without a dream, while still having a valuable life.

They say a picture says a thousand words. Click mine.

If you're the guy that thought we were strictly talking about Golden Age Guts, he's got his problems as well. Mostly that his head is all fucked up with child abuse and before he found the Hawks he'd lost his way and was just a ball of anger and murder. That changed over time with the Hawks and was a crucial part of his character development. He was never perfect. Griffith was the one that was supposed to be perfect and we slowly learned that he wasn't, either.

>>101528921
I would never apologize for such a well written character. Yeah, he's a vicious bastard, and that's part of what I like about him.

>>101528946
I dislike when people take away Griffith's choice to sacrifice his Hawks and blame it all on Ubiq. It demeans him. He wasn't just some naive dullard that was tricked, that decision was the culmination of a lot of things that began long before the Eclipse and fit perfectly within Griffith's established morality and motivations.

>>101529270
Ha, damn you're right. Elf Island 15 years then. With frequent "breaks"

>>101529345
There's more than one side of the Guts coin, don't only focus on one.

>>101529508
If you have to apologize I better go ahead and slice open my stomach for the way I ramble on. In any event there are some points I don't agree with, but more than anything I also hope that there's more to Griffith than being treated as some stock shonen villain. For him to become so mundane would be tragic.

>>101529513
No.

>>101529527
I hope this creates some internal conflict and Falconia isn't just treated as some DREADED PEOPLE FARM OF HELLPAINDEATH or some shit.

There's also soul crushing sadness, loss and despair. Golden Age Guts had a sense of humor and got along well with the rest of the Hawks. Post Golden Age...not so much on the laughing and smiling. But there's more than just anger and crying. Every once in a while he's a genuinely nice guy who goes out of his way to help people. Lately in the story he's grown close to a number of traveling companions. His scenes with this girl are especially heartwarming.

What magic? This is pre-Eclipse world, there is no magic. And you think prideful, once powerful Griffith would be happy living life from the sidelines, having to depend on Guts and Casca just to live? No one was gonna follow him now. That's a life worse than death. All those chapters between his rescue and the Eclipse show there was no future for him at he was, only death.

Ok, let's say I'm poor and starving. I decide to, in order to help myself, break into a church charity that previously helped me, bludgeon a priest with his own bible, and rape a nun using her nun clothing as a condom when they try to stop me, before stealing food to feed myself. Was what I did necessary to live? I needed food , so yes.
That doesn't mean it wasn't wrong. Even if you say Griffith HAD to do it, it was still an evil decision, nothing changes that

That's a stupid analogy. You're only poor and starving, you didn't just live through a year of torture and end up not being able to the talk/walk or do anything for yourself. You also didn't live your entire life centered around achieving ONE DREAM and in a moment of despair, your dream is handed to you on a silver platter. Griffith was ready to have people die for him & his dream, be it in the battle field or otherwise.

Is explained to have been there for years, handing out the odd miracle when asked. Magic, especially healing magic, was out there. And don't say that it would have been impossible for Griffith, who'd see Zodd, dog shit apostle, and the fucking Godhand, to imagine that such magic existed.

Judeau was planning to start a group with the band of the hawk to help him. Everyone in the band was willing to continue to risk life for him, and when they rescued Griffith, people in the countryside were shown to happily hand over goods to support their flesh sack hero.

Griffith had options available to him. He took the easy way and put himself above everyone. That is evil

>>
>>101533953
well, lets tally it up. Also, before I begin, /pol/, I'm going with what's the common standard of what Hitler did, to avoid a shitstorm just go with the 6 gorrillion. Anyway:
It's un doubtable Hitler had a dream, as did Griffith, which both aspired to.
We could compare Hitler's early day attempted coup to Griffiths "imam fuck dat princess, fuk dat king muh butt budy gone". Both led to imprisonment, albeit the reasons are somewhat different.
The sacrifice, 6 gorrilion juden (from Hitlers point of view this WAS nessesary to achieve his dream).
And Hitler's fight against the allies is, from his viewpoint, somewhat like Kushan. Repelling a force that was keeping Germany/ Midland down/ invading them. Of course, Hitler lost.
That wasn't worded as proper as it should be, but I hope you get the general idea

Midland is Denmark and the Kushan empire is based on the real life Kushan empire which was in India. Meaning that the Indians conquered either Western Russia, Eastern Europe and Germany then made it's way to Denmark, or they conquered the mid-east, turkey, the balkans, Germany and Denmark.

This is farther than the Mongols ever made it in Europe.

Yes, in reality deep down, he actually cares about people. He couldn't bring himself to kill the Loli elf queen like 3 times, He was gagging and throwing up as he was killing the children in the Lost children arc. He protected Rosaline's friend.

Guts is actually a deeply hurt character because he knows what it's like to suffer. He even mature's as a character to abandon his quest in hopes to cure Caska. That would take a lot of effort. But there is the problem of >dat rage. He's fighting monsters and constantly submerge himself in doing inhuman and horrible things, which is slowly turning him into a monster, and he's trying to fight that monster which only gets stronger when he fights. There are many aspects of Guts geniunly caring about people's lives, just as there are many aspect of him being a berserk inhuman monster who slaughters.

Reread the black swordsmen arc. Even if he's at his lowest, he says that he's a walking disaster and people couldn't protect themselves. When he tells the count's daughter to kill herself, he was actually trying to coax her into getting angry at him so she would have the will to live. There are several other examples of Guts being empathetic towards people, the reason why is people who have suffered tend to understand other people's suffering. Guts and Griffith are foil characters, Guts on the outside is an asshole, but on the inside he understands peoples struggles, Griffith is a charismatic leader who seems to care about his people, but on the inside he just uses people at the drop of a hat and actually doesn't care as much, aside from Casca and Guts that is.
