Yeah, So basically. Berserk is the best Manga Ever made. Hands down. Better than your shitty Naruto crap. not only is the art wayyyy better, and the battles and the panels and timeing. But there is like nudity every like 5 pages and monsters raping women. Kentaro Miura is a true man's man. Don't like? Figured. You're a naruto fan. Go suck it.
second rate berserk, Fuck off and die you circle jerk faggot.
Sage for Berserk
Vinland Saga > *
>>Berserk is the best Manga Ever made.
I don't think so, Sparky.
Second best, maybe, but nothing can top Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou.
Nice try faggot.
1/10 because you made me to type this.
>Berserk is ONE of the best Manga Ever made
I'm not really into loli, but Schierke is so moe I'm gonna die.
She looks ridiculously small there.
Guts is ridiculously big.
She's like 10, dude..but look at that sweet ASS...
Her ass doesn't.
Oh wait, you're totally right what was I thinking. I'll go back to Bleach and Jerk off in Kubo tite's face. You're totally right. No.
Can someone summarise Berserk for me something less lengthy than a wiki plot summary but better than saying violence and sex
Basically you are just a Bleachfag in disguise. Stop making this kind of shit threads and do actual Berserk threads without shitty drama.
I remember when this thread was made 10 hours ago, just before I went to bed.
Big man cleaves things in two with bigger sword. Also boobies.
>The Golden Age arc of Berserk is the best managa ever made.
This is the new Berserk image. Everyone use it.
Revenge and rape.
Gutts life is pretty fucked up and he's out for revenge against they guy who raped his gal and killed his posse.
Short as I can make it.
The garrest motherfucker who ever walked the earth assembles a team to take down the most fabulous motherfucker who ever walked the earth and his infinite army because the fabulous mofo tried to sell the gar mofo's soul for his own immortality and got the gar mofo's waifu monsteraped. Monsters, action, rape.
Words don't do the justice. What the fuck are you doing in this thread to begin with or in /a/ for that matter, if you haven't read it yet?
Goddamit. This facepalm is on me.
Can someone tell me when BERSERK became troll material? what next JoJo or HNK? god damn...only during the daylight hours...
best summary for Berserk i have ever heard
There's way more to it than just that.
But berserk is known for it's violence and nudity. Also Troll >>10298033. But Let's turn this into a REAL Berserk thread please?
So it's basically violence and sex. Well I could read it for the sex but I'm not exactly lacking material so this sword swinging is there any actual skill behind it because I like good sword fights rather than swining it around like a club
All 33 volumes or a basic plot summery? Plot summery, some spoilers:
It follows the life of Guts from the day he was born (although not chronologically.) He's an orphan who goes through a horrible childhood. He is forced to join a mercenary band with the leader Griffith, and he falls in love with fellow mercenary Caska. Griffith eventually, well, "betrays" is not a strong enough word, but anyway he betrays everyone, also turning Caska into a retard, and the rest of the manga is about Guts quest for revenge.
That's about as vague as I can put it.
Just fucking read it.
Seen the recent Naruto and Bleach threads? Yeah, it's them.
Just because I'm a idiot:
Mercenary group with charismatic leader Griffith hires Guts. War happens. Griffith fucks up and has to summon deamons to make his dream come true (own kingdom), all but Guts and couple character die. Guts' love interest Caska becomes retarded. Guts RAGES and wants some revenge. RIP & TEAR!
Opinions, people have them.
Go read it, you won't regret it.
you've never seen a jojo OR HnK troll? consider yourself lucky...
In all honesty, Berserk has better writing then most movies/tv shows coming out of America atm. The relationship between Guts and Caska is about as realistic as a monsterape manga can make it, unlike, say, Die Hard 4.0 where Lucy and computer kid fall in love after knowing each other for 15 minutes.
Also guts is such a mans man that all the bitches in his group wanna fuck him.
Arbitrary meaningless posts that say absolutely nothing, you made one.
>Shitty tastes, people have them
fix'd for more accurate depiction
the writer does a pretty good job at making you really hate the villain.
There's very little rape on Berserk. I don't get it why people say there's a lot of it. Way to fail dudes.
Lold and fucking saved.
There are swordfights for probably the first half the manga, but eventually Guts becomes strong enough that his sword is like a weapon of mass destruction. I mean the guy can mow down an entire army without breaking a sweat.
The best sword fights are when Guts fights Griffith back when Griffith was human.
How faithfully does the PS2 game follow the manga?
>There's very little rape on Berserk
you best be jokin' nigger
That's true. When I first read it I was like man, that can't be the badguy he's too bitch looking. Then you start to realize how horribly evil and twisted he is.
Seriously. I've never hated any villain as much as him.
I don't know, I liked the Serpico vs. Guts fights quit a bit.
Well Berserk is actually one of few manga with swordfights that don't make you facepalm all the time. Ignoring his HUGE sword he has now, he uses greatsword most of the time before that. Guts also wins his fights usually by wits' not "lol haxx&MORE POWER" before that goddamn berserk armor.
You best be joking, niggers. Griffith is a great and likeable villain. I have the utmost respect for him. I cannot see how he is hated as he is.
Well it's not every other page, but there's sure a lot more rape than any other non-hentai manga.
I mean there's probably at least 5 explicit depictions of rape scenes, and at least 5 consensual sex scenes.
I mean there's what happens in Gut's childhood, there's Caska, theres a million different women in the Wilde Arc, there's a little in the Misty Valley arc, then there's the rape orgies in the Troll arc....
from the trailer and some other footage it looks pretty accurate but I haven't played it so i wouldn't know.
Name 10 different scenes of rape.
Great villains make you hate them.
When he was a good guy, Griffith was awesome, but that's what makes him such a great example of a villain. You just can't believe you trusted him.
The dickmonster raped at least 10 different bitches in one chapter.
- guts got raped as a kid
- caska got raped by monsters, also nearly raped as a kid before being saved
- griffith got (although willingly) raped by that old creep
- probably half of the old band got raped by demons
- farnese nearly got raped by demon horse
- charlotte, her daddy wanted to rape her
and then there is the countless of rapes by random demons and shit, most implied
I named five off the top of my head
and some of those scenes involved whole rape orgies
Wait, people trusted Griffith?
Serpico is such a tactics master. He thinks before he fights Guts. So that makes it even more interesting. Like the Pillar fight.
>willingly) raped by that old creep
Considering the amount of volumes and time it has taken to make Berserk, a handful of rapes is hardly a large amount. Compare it to the amount of killing and monsters. The amount of rape is pitiful.
It's sad to see him still get beaten by RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWR BIG SWORD, though.
Fucking love Serpico.
Wait, Griffith's a bad guy now?
But when there IS rape it's damed over-the-top. I mean like I said, ORGIES OF RAPE WHERE HUNDREDS OD WOMEN GET RAPED
Its not a rape manga. Its a killing manga with rape as a minor undertone
i suppose more prostitution then anything.. still buttsex by some old fag with a young boy tho
Didn't Guts swat him like a roach with his sword in that fight?
It was kinda set in stone that Griffith didn't give a fuck about his companions. At least after that fountain scene it was pretty obvious there would be no good end for random men in Hawks.
Slap the bitch.
Oh god yes Serpico is fucking awesome. Him and Griffith are the only ones who have skillful and strategic swordfights.
Why do you guys have to focus on this shit so much. It's a mature manga that doesn't hesitate to depict realistic things (rape, torture, etc) it's not a shock manga. Stop trying to fit it into a category.
More like "Haha silly guts you can't use your sword effectively with all these stone pillars"
"Guess I was wrong haha I'm an idiot.."
Yeah, I know I did. Then i was bitch slapped. :<
>griffith got (although willingly) raped by that old creep
He whored himself for money. That isn't rape. It's prostitution.
what in the hell is up with that picture
Guts used to be somewhat strategic, until he got his hax. Now he just swats shit until it dies and if that fails POW CANNON.
I still wonder how Griffith feels about Guts now. Does he consider him a friend?
Yes. Guts is trying to trample his dreams while achieving his own dreams. This is more or less Griffith's definition of friendship.
to be fair, that works pretty well most of the time.
It's pretty clear he sees Guts as being worthless and uninteresting now.
What I wonder is what Caska thinks about Griffith.
Don't you dare try to think /a/ has any idea what rape actually is. Not for a goddamn second, you PRICK.
That was kinda awesome. Somehow though people seem to forget that Guts if frigging awesome reading the battlefield and his opponents. But it gets overshadowed by HUGE sword usually.
Pimp-hat Guts is love.
But Berserk is KNOWN for its infamous scenes of rape. Like the Troll Arc. Come on. That spread was straight out of Himekishi Lilia or something. AND it has an awesome story, a great psuedo-villain, and big swords. What's not to like?
pitiful, meaning there should be more rape.
even though she is a living and walking vegetable, being a woman is also a downfall for her. She's still going to treasure her memories about Griffith and guts. And try to stop guts once and if she ever regains her intellegence back. That and She's also a mother now. So she still might have respect for Griffith.
if you're here and haven't read berserk, you need to get your fucking priorities straight.
She merely drools and wanders around...
I don't think he would consider a man who wants to kill him his friend...Besides, why does he need friends anymore, other than exploiting them? He's one of the God Hands now and very close to achieving his dream.
I only just realized in recent chapters that Griffith doesn't give a shit about that princess. Maybe I'm an idiot, but I thought he loved her before, now I'm pretty sure it's just a ploy for him to become king. I can't believe I trusted you Griffith!
And provides Guts with temptation!!!
Best hat ever.
>>So she still might have respect for Griffith.
Yeah totally respect him after he raped her in front of Guts for pure spite, sure.
Jesus christ you guys are dumb..SHE'S NOT GOING BACK TO GRIFFITH NO FUCK WAY
I'm expecting him to rape her first chance he gets.
So where can I actually find a place that has volumes of this manga translated since there is a fuck ton now?
she liked it.
Remember when Griffith appeared before Guts and her? And she was DRAWN to Griffith?
And yet she's afraid of Guts?
Who know what the fuck she's thinking.
You are incredibly dumb and naive. the only reason he fucked her that time was because he felt powerless after guts kicked his ass and he wanted to gain some measure of control/power again.
She is but a fucking pawn like everyone else, you dumbass.
He didn't like her in the first place. He only wanted to use her so he could become a king.
He already fucked her. Griffith is anyway pretty damn asexual.
She was drawn to him because grifith and her child share the same body.
Woah. I thought it was pretty damn obvious Griffith used her.
Griffith is pretty idealistic. His ideal of friendship isn't that they are useful. The Band of the Hawk was useful, but he didn't consider anyone(except Guts later on) his friend.
the hawks, although their translation sucks, they have over 20 volumes torrented
He already fucked her brains out, she's wanting it more, since what's there to lose?
You made me forget my dream ;_;
you know until recently I coulda sworn /a/ didn't know Berserk existed
No fucking shit retards, I just said that, thanks for telling for telling me what I already know though, that helps a lot.
Berserk is one of the best mangas out there. Can't say it's the best when there are mangas like Monster, GTO, Kenshin, 20th CB, Aishiteruze Baby though.
That old King guy knows bout them lips too.
Everyone knows Berserk is the Lord of the Rings of manga.
I can't believe you're comparing Berserk to that awful shit you just listed. It makes me very sad and angry.
Monster and 20th CB were amazing, dunno bout the others.
Hmm I'll give it a try then but it's a departure from the art I'm used to so it will take some getting used to much like OP which was terrible when I started but which I now like
Has Griffith actually done anything since be became part of God Hand?
I am. In fact I'll go as far as to say that Monster is better than Berserk.
Yeah he became king of Midland.
And the Pope blessed him.
Pointing out your fucking stupidity and slowness is necessary otherwise it will spread like a contagion across the world, cockwipe..
Come to think of it... didn't the Pope bless Friend too?
IT'S WHAT I'VE BEEN SAYING ALL ALONG FAGGOTS.
He has to defeat the Kushan in Midland before he can do anything really important. Like plunge the world into darkn- err.. I mean light.
And he started a new Band of the Hawk, made up of demons. Also currently fighting neighboring demon Kingdom, the Kushans.
orly? I hardly browse /a/ anymore I just stopped by to see how things were going.
Pope always blesses the wrong guys.
Villain from 20th CB.
That's all? you'd think with the rapetastic abilities he gained he'd have done something a bit bigger by now.
Anybody have any theories on how Berserk is going to end?
I do not care about Kenshiro in the middle ages.
Friend is a friend to us all. I won't forgive you if you call him a villian when he's making our life better every day.
going to post this everyday until you like it
Guts turns into new Skull Rider and fights Griffith for eternity...
Guts turns into the 6th and previously uknown GodHand and rapes Griffith. Manga over.
Sexy Voice and Robo > Berser
Posting random stuff.
well he's also fighting a war
He was reborn human anyway, so I don't think he can use his powers. He has his demon army to do that for him.
Double KO. Guts and Griffith die in each other's arms.
Guts and Griffith will both Die. And Guts and Caskas Son will Grow up to be like his father. The end. but before Guts dies he will tap Schierke. On that note, any Hentai of Schierke and Guts?
Bigger like what? All he wanted was to be King of Midland. Which he is now. He'll take care of the Kushans because they're trying to conquer his kingdom. Also, I'm not sure if he has his Femto-abilities now, it's kinda confusing.
What's up with Griffith's huge silicone lips?
Put down the Bleach and read some fucking 20 Century Boys goddammit!!!
but then how will I ever do my laundry?
I don't get what's so great about 20th CB. I've tried reading it a few times, but always stop because it's so god awfully boring and meaningless. But then, I'm not into artistic hogwash.
>Hentai of Schierke and Guts?
its got to exist somewhere
this anon would like to see some hentai of these two
That would imply Guts is a moralfaggot which is untrue. Go fail some more.
20th Century Boys "artistic hogwash"? lolwtf?
Sure, the arc where they're kids was sort of boring, but the grownup and 21st century arcs are both fucking awesome.
oh god that's hideous
countering with awesome
that's why I like Berserk. Guts wants revenge and he's willing to eat babies to get it.
But lately, since he's gotten so much stronger, he's really softened. Shitsux. I hope something horrible happens to him again soon.
More Schierke! NAO!
Are you implying it gets better and different? If so, at what point? From what I've read it's just about that lame dude running around doing something that no one could ever care about. Maybe I should give it the Third Chance?
Try reading it for the lolwut
So did I.
I actually liked the kids arc much better. Volumes 1-13 are FUCKING AMAZING, everything else is just dragging it out.
Supposedly, we are only 1/3 of the way through Berserk. I predict:
-Guts will shed his current armor
-Guts will get knew, more skull-like armor
-Guts will lose a testicle, and maybe a leg.
There's a dojin Of Schierke masturbating while her fairy whose name I froget grinds her vag00 on Schierke's nips. I fapped.
Yeah, what he said.
If you set up a continuum with Kenshiro on one end and Kratos on the other, Guts's personality would be way closer to Kratos. Especially during the apostle-hunting arcs.
Too bad all the others of her are hard guro.
Yea, during the apostle hunting arc he just didn't give a fuck.
I demand some Guts and Schierke.
Yeah, the only other one's I've found were about fucking needles and shit. EWW.
Original plot indeed.
But that part didn't have Kanna!
>I don't get what's so great about 20th CB. I've tried reading it a few times, but always stop because it's so god awfully boring and meaningless. But then, I'm not into artistic hogwash.
You either have ADD, don't know what you're talking about, or straight up lying, because 20th CB is as far as you can get from meaningless in manga. If 20th CB is meaningless to you, then you should probably stop reading manga altogether. It also isn't 'artistic hogwash' of any form as the art isn't particularly exceptional and the story isn't spoken in metaphors.
That's probably the main flaw with the author. He's good at dragging out a story to increase the suspense but he doesn't know when to fucking stop.
Guts at his best.
At what point in the manga does Slan show up again?
Sorry for posting this in a Berserk thread, but I have to mention I was amused when Naoki Urasawa tried to pull sparkly shoujo style.
i hate waiting for new chapters...
20th CB is the greatest manga ever made. Don't reply to trolls.
And chapter releases are so freakin irregular.
Nobody said it was original, just really good. Also, Berserk invented or popularized a lot of the anime/manga tropes that you see in it in the first pace.
READ ANYTHING GOOD FROM CAPCOM COMICS?
No, it didn't.
holy shit JOHANN!!
Well, I'm not lying, so either A or B. Regardless, I found it very boring and uninteresting, but you are probably true about it not being artistic hogwash. So, does it get more interesting, or is it just "not my kind of series"? I've read perhaps 2 volumes? The main guy runs around and has flashbacks about his childhood and runs around without shoes and other stuff like that. Very uninteresting.
Why will you not stay banned?
Yes, it did.
Exactly. 20th Century Boys was my absolute favorite 2 years ago... not anymore.
Wait, 2 volumes? Had the plot even started at that point?
>The Oba-chan Seducer !7kjGbZlVeg
Are you guys Telling me there is no Guts and Schierke, Hentai. You've got to be shitting me. There has to be for the love of Kentaro.
Short bans, lol
Oh yea and another series that is definitely on par or better than Berserk: Detective Conan.
Probably not. Every now and then there's some panels about some guy called Friend and his cult of Hand-people or something. Nothing at all has happened.
Uhm... I saw an oekaki image once.
fuck yeah Misty Valley arc
Seconded. Everything after the first Friend died felt extremely awkward.
He still does some pretty moving, if by-the-numbers, characterization and excellent side-stories.
Bah, loli = fail. I'm much more interested in Fahrnese. Any hentai of her around?
Well that would explain why it would seem boring as shit at that point.
Personally, since I'd read Monster already, I knew it was going to have a good plot and was willing to slog through the early volumes to get there.
Oh man, that one was one of my favorite arcs.
>The Oba-chan Seducer !7kjGbZlVeg
GET THE FUCK OUT FAGGOT.
I'm dissapointed in your Anon.
There has to be a doujin out there.
Then you are hardly in a place to judge. I just checked, volume 2-3 is still introducing the main characters and the rise of the Friend cult.
I loved 20Th Century Boys from the first volume myself... more so than Monster, actually. My final opinion of it isn't as high, but the start is top-notch.
oh lawl Capcom Comics.
Okay, I guess I'll give it another try then.
Since when did this BERSERK Thread turn into a fucking 20th Century boys thread?! Come on people! Get your shit straight.
Guts haet loli.
Forgot the picture
If I already saw the anime and played the Dreamcast game should I just pick up where the anime left off?
I liked Berserk better when I was still like 15 volumes behind. At least that way I knew there was always more to read. Ever since I caught up, the wait for new chapters has been excruciating.
Nothing wrong with that. Sometimes Berserk threads just turn into Ice-Fire threads witch is awwwwwright too.
HxH >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Berserk
No. You'll miss the first 4 volumes which are quite crucial, as well as the subtle differences in the manga. It has a few new characters that aren't in the anime, one apostle fight and a "preview" of one important character. Read it all.
QFT. I remember I could spend a whole day just reading Berserk and there was ALWAYS MOAR!
Welcome to Awesome Monthly Seinen Land. The air is made of badass, the ground is made of fuckyeah, and the only bad thing is that we're all inflicted with a horrible addiction to this manna from heaven that falls only once a month at best.
but he likes Schierke because she not fucking useless
No, anime left out very important characters like Puck (pic related) and Skullknight.
I don't know much about the game but I hear it's a completely different storyline.
I'm still hoping for some Schierke and Guts...
Needs its own anime.
You are better off starting from beginning. Anime omitted some MAJOR characters and plots (mainly Skull Knight). Just endure the "crappy" art for couple of volumes and after that it gets better.
was it scanlated?
TWO BERSERK CHAPTERS THIS MONTH
Reposting for great justice.
Look at her she's just asking for it!
I always forget that Guts is poisoned and haven't slept for 3 days or something. Everyone would be pissed.
The game had puck and skull knight in it.
FUCKING SECONDED, CALL JAPAN AND TELL THEM, NAO!!!
A decent Berserk thread in daytime /a/? BLASPHEMY!
I lol'd Hard.
And yes! Thirded.
Of course, they wouldn't spoke about a fairy, it would have give a complete different image of the universe they were showing (besides, introduction major characters for few minutes of screentime wouldn't be a good idea). Berserk anime universe is more "medieval" while manga is "fantasy".
She just wants to fuck that huge sword like Farnese and Slan.
If by Sword you mean Penis, then yeah.
COME ON ANON DON'T FAIL US NOW! GIVE US SOME SCHRIEKE AND GUTS.
Everyone in /a/ fapped to that page, admit it guys.
I admit it and I'm not ashamed.
I'm even proud of it, and furthermore, I'm doing it right now as we're speaking...
/r/ing demonic rapehorse & Farnese picture from manga.
In before that list and that comic.
Nope. I fapped to Farnese schlicking to the burning people though.
You enjoy stating the obvious, do you not?
The only doujin involving Schierke is Rape and her getting beat, like all the woman in the BERSERK universe, some Anon uploaded it yesterday.
I didn't. I fapped to this though.
I'M GOING TO MOUNT YOUUUU!!!!!
I miss that version of Farnese. Why did she have to become sane?
Farnese was so much better when she was bat-shit-insane church woman.
Trollthread turned into awesome. Great work!
Around which volume was this happening at? I need to get my dose of Farnese.
She also came when they started to torture that poor mother with hot coals in bible-fight arc.
Volume 16 and 17, right after Misty Valley.
I remember that chapter vividly...so fucked up.
fuck, what was worse? Eclipse or inquisition torture pages?
The best part is when Mozgus gets right up in her face and says "DO NOT AVERT YOUR EYES." God, what a creepy bastard.
Eclipse was just massacre and some rape. Inquisition torture was just...wrong.
I think the torture stuff is more painful and shocking because it actually happened in real life. The festival is just lol carnage and guts.
Def. That shit in torture room were all REAL torture devices. Fucking sick.
Is this guro?
No, it's batshit awesome torture.
Yeah. Even the cartwheel punishment Mozgus favors was actually practiced in real life.
Insane priests are the best. Lol'd at his "smack my head to the floor 1000 times a day".
I wonder what kind of shit they did to Griffith. Did they just let him get a taste of every single device or what?
i lol'd so hard at that part
Boku no Bible Battle.
It was heart warming to see real torture devices. They tried to put Caska into an iron maiden.
The guy cut out his tongue, cut all his tendons, poked sharp metal sticks in him. Plus a lot more shit over the course of a year.
I still have yet to please my Libido, I need my Schierke and Guts doujin. D:
Berserk's art quality is just insane. I don't have the particular panel, but there's this one that has the entire uh... kashun? kashar? something army lined up with their spears and elephants and armor and holy shit that must've taken a week and a half to draw.
TWO! MINUTES! TO MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDNIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT
At least what Guts saw and that torturer said:
needles and stuff
muscles gouged out
tongue cut off
and most of stuff done repeatedly and that bastard gave him always some rest and first aid after that. Nice year yeah...
You just described like a million different scenes in Berserk. Miura's really fond of those panoramic pre-battle shots these days.
And it's Kushan. Yeah, the Kushans have some crazy shit. Like that huge elephant-drawn mobile palace Ganeshka rides around in.
But when Guts burst through the door he screamed like a little girl.
That was such an oh snap moment. He was like "ha ha you can't escape that cell, the door is a foot thick!" Then Guts just chops right through and shishkabobs him, and it's like "you were saying?"
With enough assistants, everything is possible.
I have all 33 volumes handy right now, and I basically remember what happens in what volume.
HE DOESN'T USE ASSISTANTS
THAT'S THE FUCKWIN PART
That's also why you will never see the end of Berserk, because Miura will be dead before it.
He should. This pace is torture ;_;
He's not that old, he's like 40 something right?
Manga artist just don't credit them. This makes you think they draw all that stuff by themselves alone, which, in Berserk's case, is impossible in that time schedule.
He's 42 and he HAS to use assistants. That shit isn't possible otherwise.
*opens random volume*
*posts fuckinwin pages*
Hmmm, the only character who can give Guts a challenging swordfight
20 years, 32albums. Not that impossible.
Um, it's the reason Berserk takes so damed long to come out. Often he'll complete 4 chapters in 6 months.
Anyway I g2g, so thread may die now
It kinda makes me sad when he turns into monster form. Zodd with sword is fuck-awesome.
Needs more RIP&TEAR ;_;
lol that's my photo your reposting
Make some moar. Awesome pictures gets saved.
I kinda wish they would have continued the Berserk anime. It was pretty much faithful if you pretend the first episode didn't exist.
Gantz is really the best anime made ever but they got there fair share of alien fucking. but the humans are the rapers :S
