What's so great about this anime /a/?
that it's based on a even greater manga
Nothing, read the manga.
Its about a man who has to kill a god whats not great about that
It's got violence, sex, mayhem, HUGE GUTS' sword, and even more violence sex and mayhem.
Berserk is pure manliness in print form.
The anime isn't about Guts having to kill a god. The last 30 seconds, after the credits are about Guts wanting to kill a God.
And Griffith isn't even a God anyways. He's God's servant. He's an archangel, tops.
My love for you is like a truck.
It's a story about one character surviving and living in a world held sway by a supposed god who believes said world wishes for the moset evil and depraved life imaginable. The anime follows the events leading towards the realization about why the world is so fucked up and how such monstrous feats are capable by man, but it doesn't get explained. The manga expands upon and details it all more closely, while the anime cut alot of the specifics out. Recently it's gone to almost complete shit since the main character gathered some sort of group of child heroes following him around. Untill that point it had been him with a supporting cast who weren't meant to stay like they are now. It's been running for a very long time as the author is notorious for waiting a year or longer just for one chapter. It also gets released in the young animal magazine i'm not sure if that's still true today though.
It is a refreshing exception of maturity in anime world.
Torture and raep.
manga is better, but i'm re-watching the anime for the awesome music
also, the only anime to have ever fucked my mind..literally. i had a headache from this show until i downloaded and read the manga
>>manga is better, but i'm re-watching the anime for the awesome music
I hope you mean Forces, and not the OT/ET.
Decent FF7 ripoff
You had to mention it, didn't you?
Now I have to find my Susumu Hirasawa playlist.
How could I avoid it?
Berserk came out first
When I think about it it's obvious you couldn't have avoided it. Even the PS2 vidiya had some nice music, Sign II is probably the most played song in my music folder with Forces(godhand mix) on a solid second place.
Don't feed trolls.
Don't sage Berserk.
Berserk's 1988 actually
