can we please discuss how amazing Berserk is
Lost Children arc isnt amazing.
It might be time to upgrade to Vagabond
Yeah that boat ride sure was amazing alright
I don't think anybody is going to downgrade to vagabond any time soon.
It's a goddamn masterpiece.
Incredible, there is nothing that has come close to how good Berserk is.
The art of the manga is insane, the detail of each frame, the storyline, it is actually perfect.
Guts still needs to get stronger to beat Griffith. Griffith is still a disgusting human bean for sacrificing everyone. The Hellhound within Guts is still locked down, but it surfaces in the ship saying To Guts that once his last lights are extinguished (his new companions) it will resurface and Guts will become it as well as vice versa. This seems like foreshadowing of something horrible too come.
Tl;dr Griffith is a fag who gave up his humanity, Guts is still struggling and walking the borderline between Monster and Man.
Griffith did nothing wrong.
When is the next chapter coming out?
The only people he actually cared for was Guts, Casca, and the Princess. Other than that, yeah he was a complete asshole and he was a faggot for what he did. At the same time one of the best written Villains of all time.
Sometime during February or March I think.
I disagree. He cared about all his soldiers. They just weren't his friends, more like subjects.
He's only a villain because the point of view for the story is coming from Guts.
Jesus christ I was being sarcastic of course Griffith did a bunch of shit wrong.
I've brought the griffithfags out of the woodwork. What have I done.
Without griffith to have done everything he did to guts, the story wouldn't be as interesting as it is. And neither would guts.
What have you done, now we're going to spend the whole thread arguing about if what Griffith did was Justified. I'm ok with this.
Berserk is so amazing that one of the best music videos on YouTube was created with just the manga.
I love Berserk with all my heart, it is my favorite manga and I've been reading it since childhood. Even still I feel as though we have just discussed everything there is to discuss. Miura has simply taken too long with his releases. All "hype" is gone and now people just kind of accept the fact the series may not even end.
It hurts to say things like maybe it is time to move on but I don't know, every time I hold onto some semblance of hope that "THIS" time Miura will get back on track and start releasing at a decent pace after X happens, ... I simply get crushed by the cruel reality.
Miura truly cares more about Idolmaster than his child Berserk, do not avert thine gaze. Read and accept this truth.
>All "hype" is gone
Speak for yourself you little faggot.
So making something interesting means it's morally justifiable? You better not complain when I'm raping your loved ones.
What pissing me off is that Miura wasting his time on piece of shit such as idolmaster.
Would you prefer berserk if it was a slice of life?
>implying I'd let you rape my loved ones
>Miura truly cares more about Idolmaster than his child Berserk, do not avert thine gaze. Read and accept this truth.
Your excuse is dated. He is just about to put out his sixth and final (for now) chapter of his new manga about giants pile driving each other.
So you have nothing to argue.
Can't you read?
Of course I do.
As you said, making something interesting makes it morally justifiable.
>slice of life
>making something interesting makes it morally justifiable.
Griffith fags everyone
Really though? You are telling me you are still SUPER PUMPED for the next chapter and can't fucking wait? You are as excited as you used to be during consistent releases?
Most people just want to get off the fucking boat, they aren't actually looking forward to more of that shit.
You may be the first person I've met that is "hyped" for the direction Berserk is going in and the time it is taking to get there.
See, since you have no fucking hope of arguing anything in your favour, after all since griffiths AND guts "morally reprehensible" actions make the series more interesting to readers, you simply act as if my point is inherently wrong without providing even an attempt at an argument.
As expected from a dumbshit.
He never said that. He just said that the story is more interesting because what happens isn't morally justifiable.
I'm pretty hyped too.
The second Zodd fight is the best fight in the history of manga.
There is so much tension with Griffith back and then fucking Zodd returns. We see black swordsman Gutts go toe to toe with the almost unstoppable Zodd in what is probably the best thought out, choreographed, and drawn fight seen in the history of the medium.
As pumped as I am for anything else in my life.
Have you considered the fact that MAYBE Miura is taking a break from writing berserk so that he can think about a way to finish the series gracefully and in a manner befitting its monumental nature? Like how somebody would stop moving around on an island so that they can get their bearings as to where they are.
If he loves the series as much as he seems to (and he certainly does, given all the evidence for it), he wouldn't be able to stop thinking about it.
And even if it is never finished, the story so far has been fantastic enough to justify its unfinished existence.
Whether or not something is morally justifiable doesn't matter.
Berserk really should've ended sometime after the tower of conviction. Just one more big arc after Griffith returns and this manga would've been an undisputed masterpiece
It was bait nonetheless
You know you reacted just like Rickert the first tine you read this part.
Wrong. The standoff at sunrise between Griffith and Guts is the best fight.
Reminder that Farnese is still a virgin. She almost raped Guts tho.
now I wonder why berserk fags arent playing vindictus
We play Dark Souls.
Hands down best arc I've ever read in any manga.
>can we please discuss how amazing Berserk was
just gonna fix that for you
>mfw some casual faggot is posting hawkscans
too slow to match gut's speed
Get your shit out of here.
At least you won't be looking like a faggot.
I dunno his default look is pretty much guts
Shit just keeps getting more intense.
>Elf Island arc (with pans to the Hawks exploring the realm and saving people and some exposition of Griffith himself)
>another arc which sets up the finale in the background and makes gradual subtle hints of things to come
>final arc, fall or transfer of power of Falconia, Godhand are slayed or do something to the world, someone gets a behelit meant for them and uses it with the sacrifice being something that hinders Griffith, etcetera the numerous other theories
>Idea of Evil will never make another appearance.
Who's the kid?
Farnese duh stupid
Boku no Fuck you
Ill end on this amazing spread.
Stop posting your shitty translation and terrible scans.
And here's a version of the spread that isn't complete dogshit ripped from a streaming site.
Thank you, I thought I was the only one cringing hard at that translation.
P-please, keep on
tl;dr Guts gets his ass handed to him.
He gets hit once because Caska showed up. Guts wasn't even a 1% as fucked up as he was after pretty much any other apostle fight.
How the fight ends.
He was fucking manhandled.
As soon as Zodd transformed, he immediately lost all momentum and was instantly forced on the defensive.
Guts needed the armor just to fight roughly even with Grunbeld. He sure as shit couldn't take out Zodd without it.
A Berzerk thread without Griffith apologist? Sweet.
He practically slices Zodd's arm off right after, he isn't on the defensive. I'm not saying he was a shoe in but he was doing better than every fucking previous apostle fight. Did you not see the beating he took against Snake guy, Roshinu, and slug count before he even hurt them? He always has a better chance of losing.
Also he could barely walk thanks to Slan when he fought Grunbeld.
It had no effect on Zodd at all.
If Zodd had stayed to finish the fight, Guts would have been wrecked.
>inb4 landwhale Grffith apologist shows up
Hawk babby please.
Not to mention
>Black Swordsman Arc
>A valid measurement of anything
>Forgetting that Guts had fought an entire group of pseudo apostles before he fought Rosine.
Don't expect that guy to. He came because he saw the opportunity to shit on someone, not to share the love of Berserk.
Death to Griffith apologists
You hawkscan reading casual.
Hawkscan is best scan, DH can go fuck itself, it's doomed now that it's lost Star Wars anyways.
He can't even block Zodd effectively.
By my count, that's the second time Guts has cut Zodd in that exact spot.
He's also had his arm cut off twice, but unlike Guts, he just puts it back on.
Yea I agree, Hawkscan is the best scan.
It's a huge improvement from when he first fought Zodd. Plus Zodd is like the second most powerful appostle in the Berserk universe.
Second? I thought he was the strongest.
I'm pretty sure the Kush emperor could wipe the floor with Zodd.
Hawks are good for 2 things.
1. Early Dark Horse used Knight of Skeleton, while technically correct, isn't as good.
2. Hawks chose to use the Bonfire instead of Campfire for that once well known scene, which sounds much better.
He DID wipe the floor with Zodd.
Anybody reading Gigantomakhia? I heard that it takes place in the same universe as berserk.
I thought calling you out would get you to keep posting. Got to fight the truth.
Could Irvine arrow kill Zodd?
It doesn't unless the Berserk world is full of bug people, pissing loli robots and giants choke slamming each other a million years in the future.
Yeah because Guts totally has fucking gears on his sword.
>Berserk world is full of bug people
I figured it would've fit with fantansia morphing humans over the centuries into the offshoots in gigantomahkia.
Well, yea but he's dead and shit, or whatever, now.
He's not dead, he's just a big fucking tree.
Sometimes I wonder if Zodd can even die from nonsupernatural means.
Apostle's weak points are the part of them that keeps their human form but Zodd does not have any part of him that is not transformed. Unless his real face is hidden between his buttcheeks he might simply be able to heal no matter the physical damage.
>Apostle's weak points are the part of them that keeps their human form
I never heard of that.
They never say it in the manga.
My memory is not that great, but I remember Femto dealing a death blow to the Emperor. Which led into what the Berserk world is today.
He carved a rift into him.
SOMEHOW, that turned him into the World Tree.
Shit doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
Skully did that, but femto used it I forgot what happen after that.
Skull Knight attacked Femto, and Femto bended his reality shifting slash around him, then used it onto the emperor.
>They never say it in the manga.
But they do show it.
Guts figures it out when he fights monkey bones. His whole body heals except his human like parts. The count is invincible besides his human head as well.
Even in the Berserk armor Guts knows this and it is why he stabs Grunbeld right in the nose-face.
I'm pretty sure Zodd's head would be his weak point, even his broken horn wouldn't heal.
Except, you know, when he stabbed Mozgus in the neck, shot Rosine in the insect abdomen, Zodd killed Wyald by breaking him in half, and killed Piggy by cutting his non-human head.
But that was some crazy dream duel against a god, not natural. Even then it actually cut his entire face in half but he didn't die.
It's like Griffith made an orange portal behind him and a blue portal in front of him and let Skully's sword slash Ganishka to bits and tear open the fabric of reality.
To use a shitty vidya analogy.
i want to play soul calibur now
>first introduced to Berserk by my older brother when I was 11
>holy fucking shit, greatest show in history
>finished entire manga series
>now 23 and the fucking series still isn't finished
>Guts gets his ass dominated by Zodd in their first fight
>Now he's standing toe to toe with him and exchanging blows
yeah you better run bitch
Mozgus- not an apostle.
Rosine-is not killed by the cannon, it just pisses her off. She is killed because Guts cuts through her real body when she cheek stabs him.
Wyald- he is 2seconds from death because his human parts are fucked and Zodd just pushes him over the edge by breaking his whole body in half.
Piggy- I assume you mean the a apostle that tracks Guts down. Guts cut his whole body in half including his real face. Before that Guts cannoned his non human face and sliced open his stomach and it didn't stop him.
Sure, whatever you say, buddy.
I'm sure that your completely unsubstantiated theory is completely correct.
Hey, fuck you, Vagabond's awesome. I like Berserk better overall, but they're on pretty equal footing and Berserk has been worse than Vagabond for a while.
Do people really not think the human parts are their weak points?
It is fucking spelled out against Wyald and it is how Guts kills every apostle. He attacks their human parts or cuts them off the body.
Do you need the author to spell out everything for you again and again?
>It is fucking spelled out against Wyald
Because his dick sure regenerated, right?
Gut's doesn't specifically aim at shit.
He just tries to kill them.
Griffith did nothing wrong besides selling out his friends for power, raping casca for no reason other then fuck guts up, have his best friend eternally hunted by demons, becoming pure evil and betraying all his friends.
I know, spoonfeeding and all, but from whence can I locate the best scanlations of berserk to download?
From /a/, actually
There is no indication of that, even if he is always hitting their human parts. He kills them all by doing a ton of damage to them. You don't have to add extra stuff onto that. If anything, those parts are just where he aims when doing his attacks because they aren't made of devil skin. You're way too sure about something that is just conjecture. You are dangerously close to becoming a powerlevelfag.
My gratitude is yours, kind anon.
Those the Dark Horse translations?
They're cleaned and resized DH scans from kickthekitty.
It probably would grow back, or it could be reattached like Zodds arms. We were thankfully spared that because Guts killed him by specifically aiming at his human body.
He does specifically aim at shit.
Against the count he says his first cut on his face wasn't deep enough and the scar didn't heal. His whole plan was to get close to his face. He then aims for the head again.
Against the snake he cannons his face off as well.
After using the cannon on Rosine's abdomen he is pissed he blew his chance to kill her by not hitting human parts.
Against Grunbeld he then goes right for the nose face.
If you refuse to see the obvious and something directly said about Wyald there is no hope for you.
Oh good, the scans I have are fuckhuge and not very clean.
Still, reading through it all again.
I forgot how adorable Casca used to be.
>bunch of examples of Guts aiming for the head
Where the fuck else would he try to aim? He's not aiming for the head because it has some kind of human weakness combo multiplier, he's aiming at the head because he's fighting monsters that have a head. He's not going to aim at their dick if they have a head. Well, not in most cases. Sometimes you gotta cut a dick.
Their human face is the only part most apostles keep of their human form.
The apostles that have more than their human face (Rosiness and Wyald) are in fact hurt and killed by attacking their human body.
Just finished the Lost Children arc. Rosine have me the biggest why boner throughout.
I have no idea why you'd ask why boner on her.
I like all the arcs.
Sea god arc was a filler,but it wasn't shit except for the fucking pirates.
Cuz she's 11 perhaps?
Probably something to do with being a creepy moth demon.
I think you may Have a point anon, the only reason why he didn't kill Rosine is because he just couldn't blow her head off because secretly Guts is a softy on the inside sometimes, but he's slowly losing that.
There better be a dragonslayer sword in Dark Souls 2
>there are people who dislike Schierke.
agreed (b4 same fag)
>not disliking a typical loli with put just for the sake of waifufags
Berserk is amazing no doubt about that. I could care less that its babby's first Senien I still reread it from time to time. I'll even go to say that even when Guts and his crew go fight the trolls and more fantasy elements get introduced that the quality didn't drop ( I enjoyed Slan raping guts, the Berserker armor fights, the Kushan war,). Though the one exception to this is the Sea God Arc simply because it goes nowhere no new information nothing(well at least the mermaids will help Guts and Co find angel island.)
At this point I eagerly wait for more Berserk because I'll never tire of it.
A side question to you guys is there any other story with beings as mysterious/powerful as the god hand(I'll take anything)? They're one of the reasons I love Berserk.
>even remotely that good looking
Right, and /fit/ its totally straight.
Might've been correct in 2003. Always gotta edit more than just text when making them.
>not being your own bag
Nice posts but god you're a cock sucker.
>You now realize that once they leave Elfland they have to once more embark on a sea voyage.
Geez, I wonder why
Those scans are pretty good actually, you just need to level the black/white a bit and cut the frame out.
What you can't fix is the resolution, and 4000x3000 is amazing compared to >>101900913
GOD FUCKING DAMMIT
Really new to Berserk, when exactly did the hiatus start?
Hasn't been a chapter since january last year.
So having marathoned Berserk for the first time last month I can honestly say that anyone who thinks Miura has lost his way with the story has simply been exhausted by the amount of time it's taken to release it all. The writing quality hasn't dipped, and they haven't even been on the boat for that long, in the story at least.
well they got on the boat 7 years ago if i remember correctly
That thread was fucking hilarious.
Wait, real world years or in the manga?
I really hope you mean in the manga, but I'm pretty sure you don't, and that's a scary thought
I really hope it does fit into the Berserk universe.
Real world years of course.
Berserk went to shit after Conviction
This never happened, right? The fight ended with Guts falling in the cave/ rubble, or is my memory fucked?
Reverse image search and see what you find.
Actually I find it somewhat poor that he's rehashed Gut's condition with the berserker armor every fight. All interactions with his hound ego are very similar and go through the same general motions.
But other than that I agree. Just finished it for the first time yesterday.
This fucking Griffin defender, it's really just one fucking guy right?
Only one person can be so hilariously deluded.
It's just a ruse.
The Fs are inverted.
Those are not the assets of an 11-year-old.
How would you know? Have you seen a naked 11 year old girl before?
No, have you?
actually yes because i have a little sister
He's really only been in like 3 major fights with the armor though, no?
