so I DLed 5 volumes of Berserk, should I watch the anime too? I haven't started reading though.

in b4, slowpoke, newfag, etc
>>
Don't watch the anime. Just download the soundtrack.
>>
ok, does the anime follow the manga? or is it like Claymore? follows and deviates near the end?
>>
>>10209880
It covers the most boring arc, and it sucks, just like Claymore.

Read the manga.
>>
>>10209880
afaik it follows everything then does a cliffhanger on the Eclipse
>>
>>10209886
>>It covers the most boring arc, and it sucks, just like Claymore.

The Golden Age arc is the most boring arc?

You best be joking, nigga.

lol, I just started reading, and the first page is this.

so fucking awesome, why didn't I read this before?

btw, up to which volume are out in english?
>>
Manga is nicer.
>>
>>10209927
Scanlations is almost up-to-date
Offical English releases is up to Volume 21.
>>
>>10209927
33
>>
>>10209927
looking back

isn't this extremely out of character for Guts?

He hates being touched by people and I've never seen him hit on anyone besides Caska and Griffith.
>>
>>10209922
The anime didn't had the scene where Guts chops off Penis Monster's penis.

Berserk animu sucks, and you know it.
>>
>>10209922 best be joking

I can see the 13-17 crowd who reads this thinking that. Gives the rest of us a bad name.
>>
>>10209952

Maybe Miura didn't think of that at that point yet. Then again, HE JUST KILLED A SUCCUBUS BY SLEEPING WITH HER WHAT THE FUCK HOLY SHIT also he probably did it as payback for Corcus. All the apostles in the first three volumes killed some of Guts' friends in the eclipse, remember?
>>
>>10209952
He has to get pussy Somewhere. Might as well be from something he's gonna kill.
Only thing that beats the first page is the second page.

Also, I loved the anime really. Sure, it could have been better if it followed the manga better, but on it's own it's still plenty epic. Wouldn't have read the manga otherwise.
>>
>>10209952
He let the shota elf touch him in the beginning to heal his wounds
>>
>>10209952
>>10209977
>>10209978
Or the best way to kill a succubus is to fuck her and kill her with her guard down?
>>
The manga is worth it just for the art alone.
>>
>>10209984
if I recall he didn't really "let" him he just didn't care enough to fight him.
>>
>>10209984
he was lying on a jail cell and could hardly move
>>
>>10209984
And he still raged about being touched, but he couldn't move to smack him away.
>>
Fuck! now i feel like re-reading this.
>>
>>10209927
I think 22 volumes are for sale in English. The manga scans are up to date, 33 volumes.
>>
wow 10 volumes behind? what about Japanese volume,?
>>
Perhaps Caska cured his fear of being touched enough that he could suppress the rest if it was necessary to get a job done.
>>
>>10210050
Still on 33.

Besides, the English manga is actually catching up. I wouldn't be surprised if it did by 2010.

Seriously dude, read the manga. The art alone makes it worth it (as >>10209927 fuck awesome page shows) and really shows off the awesomeness that is Miura's pen. Plus the anime left out Puck. Not cool.

<<<This pic says it all.
>>
>>10210114
Miura should really cut on down on the big wars. He does EVERYTHING by hand so every time he draws armies the guy takes like a 3 month break before the next chapter.
>>
i've been (half-assedly) collecting the bersek manga, but i heard that dark horse takes some liberties with the translation around volume 12.

i hate reading scanalations so i was rather upset when i heard this. anyone know how bad the liberties they took were?

Now I wonder if the story will ever be finished in my lifetime.

I would stop after volume 27 and wait for the story to go somewhere again. Loli-witch arc is not everything it's cracked up to be.

does that shota elf stay with him the whole time? and what's up with adventurers with swords with elfs or fairies

no I meant the published per volume in Japanese. 33?
>>
>>10210131
I know. I just didn't have a page on hand to post.

If you plan to watch the anime, then read the manga that continues after that, you're missing on all kinds of stuff, especially Skull Knight. He's pretty important and he's foreshadowed in the manga quite a bit. That said, watch the anime, then read the manga fully, even the parts that are covered in the anime, aka Golden Age.
>>
>>10210179
Japan has 32 volumes out and 33 is currently running.
It's been running for 20 years now.

GET OUT.
>>
>>10210164
Because it's one of the tropes in the fantasy genre?
>>
>>10210185
It was sort of a pain to go through the first thirteen chapters when I'd seen them animated already, but fortunately there were enough (not many, just enough) differences to make me read it all.
Also, without the Skull Knight, did they ever explain in the anime how Guts got out of the Eclipse?
>>
sage for Cloud ripoff
>>
>>10210233
Nope, it just cuts off without any explanation, which is why the anime drives people fucking insane.
>>10210237
For the 9000nth time, Griffith came first.

>>10209952

Yeah, The first few chapters seem very OOC when you look back on them. Remember, though, that at first, Berserk was not released in a magazine, but straight to collected volumes. What better way to hook your target audience (young adult males) than sex and violence in the first three pages?

hey the prototype was'nt bad by any means

>>10210556
The whole "Imma gonna search for my muthar who was killd by daemonz" was pretty weak I think, at least compared to what we got.
>>
>>10210381
it's funny how manga prototypes are always crappier than the real deal.

See: Death Note (lulz Death Eraser)

cartoon/comic prototypes are usually better than the end result
>>
>>10210602
The death eraser was awesome, also the main character was a loser, which was great. It was much less serious business than the real deal though.
>>
/r/ this Death Eraser thing, it sounds intriguing

o.O I'm in the volume where Guts is gonna get raped by a black guy

Enjoy ur shota rape
>>
>>10209952
Since it's the first chapter, I think it's likely that Miura hadn't figured out his backstory yet.

Or you can just assume that Guts knew it was a demon in the first place, and having sex with it was the only way it was gonna reveal its true form.
>>
>>10210833
Why would Guts care about an apostle revealing it's real form? He kills plenty of people anyway, especially at that point of the story.

I think it's kinda funny how this one page pretty much sums up the entire theme of DEEP Note.
>>
>>10210874
Yeah, I dunno. Of course it doesn't make sense. It's just that that's the only way it -sorta- makes sense.
>>
Bottom line: if you are going to watch the anime, do it first.

It will only make the manga look better and you won't call the anime any less than decent when you watch it before reading.

Huh. In the Death Note prototype, pages can't be torn out and used. That kinda sucks.
>>
>>10210127
They left out the chapter where Griffith meets God - not DH's fault, Miura had it taken out of the original Japanese volume because he felt the chapter gave away too much.
>>
>>10211064
GAVE AWAY? Ha! When's he planning to explain anything? 50 volumes in?
Fuck, without at least that little bit of explanation, not a whole lot about Berserk makes sense.
>>
the last 2 episodes of the anime got me to read the manga
>>
>>10210131
Ganeshka kinda looks like that bomb-headed Mohammed drawing.
>>
>>10211108
Point is, that's all that's missing from the English version. Dark Horse has been handling Berserk very well - the translation is solid and it's completely unedited.
>>
>>10211299
Except that the first few volumes have QUALITY and they have some words cut off
>>
>>10211576

She ALMOST gets raped a lot.
>>
>>10211576
Wait for it.
>>
>>10211576
Rape and Retardation is Eminent
>>
btw I've seen people post saying Caska gets raped like a lot of times, I'm on vol 5 and I still don't see her getting raped
>>
>>10211576
Volume 13

After that she is in danger of being raped or killed or wandering off and falling off of a cliff like every single chapter. It's a miracle she is even still alive.
>>
I don't think Caska does anything but get raped.
>>
>>10211576
vol 13-14
ya can't miss it
>>
>>10211621
Before she got raped she was pretty cool.

Post-rape though all she does is point at things, go AAAH and put thing in her mouth...

Also gives birth to horrible deformed demon slug babies.
