I really loved berserk when I first watched it several years ago.
I watched the new movies but they were not as good as the series(which itself was far from perfect), because of the 3D art and the missing details.
I started reading the manga but its a bit of a pain compared to watching the anime.
Is there a reading of Berserk?
Are there any news of some new series?
Is there anything as good as berserk
(interesting visuals, grim world, no taboos etc..)?
>>
New anime is probably going to be worse CG wise if the trailer is anything to go by.

Also you're fucking pathetic if your attention span is so shit you can't read a fucking manga. Especially one as engaging as Berserk.

I think casca will eventually become her own self but I hope Miura has the balls to at least show some drama before that. Like her going berserk or wanting to initially kill herself. The worst card miura can pull is the "she needs time to recover un the island"

With the current rythim of hiatus after hiatus though, I'm not even sure ill ever even ser casca get healed

>>137202761
When I first read this, I thought maybe Casca has been feigning the whole retarded thing as a coping mechanism and is fully aware of what's going on.

I theorized that the reason she gets mad at Guts so much is because she is disappointed in him for almost raping her and not acting like he should. Like she fully understands that it was very un-Gutslike to do that instead of just disliking him for the sake of the almost rape alone.
>>

I know it is an advertisement. I have read the first 3 volumes since starting the thread.

At some point you have to realize that Miura doesn't think about what comes natural in terms of characters and stories when it comes to writing berserk.
His first point is about how he could hurt Guts the most.

Torn between Black Swordsman and Conviction. First for deliciously edgelord Guts and because of how distinct the world felt right away, the second because of the pure awesome that was Mozgus' Angels.
>favourite girl
Isma.
>favourite moment
Probably the first meeting with Griffith and Count refusing to sacrifice his daughter, plus Guts' speech to her afterwards. Eclipse might've been bigger, but this was the moment I fell in love with the manga.
>what will casca do once she unpotatoes
I honestly have no idea. I just hope that she doesn't stop Guts from hunting down Griffith, even though she will totally try to, because Miura has been hinting on that for the last hundred chapters. Guts' whole character arc has been about "are you willing to give up revenge for the people you love?"
And the thing is, we know he will get the revenge, and Griffith does fully deserve this, and if he doesn't get what's coming to him, it would be unclimactic, so Guts is totally not going to live for eternity on the elf island. I just want him to get hurt the least because of it at this point. I also want the whole drama thing with Casca to finally stop, because it's been really overplayed by this point.
I just hope at this point that either Casca will eventually understand him and let him go, or that after Guts makes the choice of staying with Casca, Griffith decides that Elfheim is too much of a threat and attacks it too, like he did Flora, so that the point is dropped after that. The ideal variant would be Casca going full Black Swordsman and Guts having to keep her in check, getting strength to battle the armor from it too.
Eh, who am I kidding, she's getting her memory erased, isn't she.

Just go away.
>>
>>137209613
fun fact: Wazarai Shizuya, author of Blaster Knuckle was a friend of Miura's in highschool. In fact, Miura has stated in one of his interviews that he took Wazarai's personality and used it for one of the main band of the hawk members (can't remember who it was ATM). Blaster Knuckle was also in the same magazine Berserk was getting released in, and putting in such close connections it's my personal opinion that they both inspired each other while writing. I've never read Blaster Knuckle but it's been in my backlog for a while now.
>>
>>137209959
You havent read it. And while the KKK are a focused antagonist its not as simple as "whites are evil and need to be jewed and blacks dindu nuffin and need to take all the white women" or whatever bullshit you shove down your throat.

Where in my post did I say "black guy kills the evil white race and blacks finally be free". So now we have to talk like the KKK are great people to keep /pol/ from being triggered?

Okay then its about a black guy killing demons and vampires that integrate themselves into both southern and wild west communities some of which happen to be KKK members. Members of each race are treated fairly and have motivations beyond "muh race".

Happy now /pol/?

When I think of nuanced motivations for characters, I think of Crime and Punishment. When the argument for nuance is 'the extent to which the reactionary is presented as laudable is the extend to which he shares revolutionary aims', that's not nuance.

In any case, basically every story no matter how shallow or Hacknied could be argued to show negative and positive (and neutral) qualities on any side in at least *some* way if you're pedantic enough, that's not really an argument. In the end one side is the protag, and the other is the antag. If you want to subvert that youed have to take extra effort to make it clear and that the designated protagonist is in the wrong (like in the underground man).

Really, in the end the object level problem is just that it might give innocent young weebs the mistaken impression that nignogs are noble or pleasant to be around, and that can get them in trouble.

If you don't read the manga you can't appreciate berserk. The style gets much better and easier to follow and you will also get better at reading manga. Otherwise you are SERIOUSLY MISSING OUT on so many bad ass apostles and fights and overall character developement. The anime it just such a small sliver. They turned the monsters all into humans.

Then why the fuck are you in a thread about a manga that focuses on a character obsessed with revenge? Thats a trope thats been used a shit ton of times. It doesnt matter how many times its used, what matters most of all is how its done.
>>
>>137214009
I guess saying revenge was a bad choice of words, however it's done well here, it's unique and interesting

With nazis/kkk revenge I just don't find it very interesting. The bad guys are almost always portrayed as evil just for being the sake of evil (that's no reason for a characters actions, it's just lazy writing)

I don't really care about reading a story of a black guy who kills KKK members, I'm sure it could be done well but I've seen this stuff a ton already, it just doesn't interest me
>>
>>137214009
Its okay for guts to get revenge because he's white. Alternately, its okay as long as the context of the story is all within the same ethnicity so that element is mostly removed from consideration to begin with.
