Obviously "Griffith did nothing wrong" is just a meme, but we can agree that sacrificing a band of mercenaries - people who make a living killing other people - isn't exactly the worst thing anyone has ever done, right?

The main thing that makes Griffith evil is his sacrifice of everyone at St Albion so he could be reborn, followed up by him raping Casca and spunking all over her and Guts' baby. Prince Adonis' death was also pretty awful and he didn't show remorse for it, but in the end that was Guts' fault.

Of course, when we find out what Griffith and the Godhand's big plan is it'll probably be pretty bad, but given what we currently know about him I don't think you can say that Griffith is any worse than anyone else in the Berserk world (Ganishka, for example).
>>
>>133971439
He sacrificed his friends, people who loved and cherished him and would give their lives for him.
>>
>>133971554
>He sacrificed his friends
>would give their lives for him.
So what's the issue?
>>
>>133971611
Your parents would probably give their lives for you, does that mean you should sacrifice them for your own selfish gains?
>>
>>133971645
No, but my parents aren't mercenaries.
>>
So can someone please explain why there was a naked creature on top of Guts and why it got stickied?
>>
>>133971661
A mercenary getting sacrificed by their leader friend to demons is not the same as dying in battle against an enemy for money.

I'm tired of this shitposting.
>>
>>133971611
They were willing to risk their life.
Not getting eaten by demons.
>>
>>133971722
No it's not the same. But it still could have been far fucking worse. The Band of the Hawk were, for the most part, not good people. Griffith did something wrong but it's not exactly top villain tier.

>Griffith was greedy to kill all those people just so he could get power!
And Band of the Hawk members aren't bad for killing whoever the fuck so they can get cash for whatever reasons they have?
>>
>>133971710
PLEASE RESPOND
>>
>>133971862
It's Shierke, who was naked because she was trying to give Casca a bath.

It was stickied because they're off the boat.
>>
>>133971844
Do you know what a bond is?

The band were like family, and in those times being a mercenary was common. Your bros aren't the same as any stranger regardless.

>Band of the Hawk members aren't bad for killing whoever the fuck so they can get cash for whatever reasons they have?
Mercenaries are just tools. They're not to blame; the evil ones are those who pay them because they don't want to get their own hands dirty. They're basically taking someone else's sins on themselves. Sound familiar?
>>
>>133971554
Let's see how great decisions you would make after being tortured for a year.
>>
>>133972092
>Band of the Hawk are like Jesus
Could this be the birth of an eric new meme?
>>
>>133971439
It should also be considered that at the time, Griffith had just experienced years of torture and was but a shadow of his former self.

His mind and willpower were shattered, his body was broken, and he was conscious he would have had to live the rest of his life as a pathetic cripple unable to hold a sword, wear an armor, make love, or even stand by himself.

For someone as extraordinary and ambitious as Griffith, it's shocking but not that unexpected he would go as far as to sacrifice his friends to escape the terrible situation he was in and achieve his dream.

In the context of the story, however, the Band of the Hawk is far from a bunch of stereotypical mercenaries: they all loved, admired and utterly trusted Griffith, felt like they were a family and a group destined to great things... despite they were making a living out of killing, doesn't mean Griffith was right in sacrificing them, or that he's justified because they weren't perfectly good guys (even if some of his band were truly innocent and/or young).

Despite the situation he was in, however, I'm not justifying Griffith or anything like that... just clarifying that he didn't do what he did out of sheer depravity and maliciousness.

Well, except for raping Casca in front of Guts. That was truly a dick move. (pun not intended)
>>
Characters in Berserk ain't black and white.
I like Grifith because I understand where his actions came from. He lost and risked countless lives before in order to reach his dream, a few hundred more did not mean anything.
That's the risk the band of the hawk took when they decided to help Griffith, worship him as some kind of god and be part of his band.
Now how it happened? yeah, pretty hardcore stuff. But so what? In the world they live in, they could die in horrible ways that don't involve demons just for following Griffith.
>>

Hope you're good at drawing cute girly Griffith if I'm frank with you kin.

>>133972417
Femto raped Casca. There is nothing wrong with pairing Casca with pre-Eclipse Griffith.
>>
>>133972186
I wonder, since the manga describes Behelits as the final tears of the broken people who sacrificed those closest to them, does that mean finding the Behelit created when Griffith became Femto will possibly let them turn the good parts that were cast out of Grifith into a weapon against him?

In a sort of happier counterpoint to the Skull Knight just making Behelits into sword-enchantments they could summon the "Ghosts" or "Echoes" of the original person's conscience.

>>133972417
At that point Griffith had already expelled the last shards of his "Soul" so to speak.
>>
>>133971439
>rape is worse than the torture and murder of hundreds of former allies
Tumblr, please.
>>
>>133972444
Kinda off topic but Griffith was more of a crush she had for a long time. Guts was her true love.
>>
>>133972486
You gotta admit though, raping your best friends girlfriend retarded and turning their unborn child into a demon with your devil spunk is a pretty dickish thing to do.
>>
>>133971439
Griffith is evil, he's the arbiter of a collectivist monotheistic god that exists to create reasons for human suffering, he exists as the saviour of humanity from the suffering that he and the God Hand have caused by incarnating Ganishka and merging the astral and physical worlds, and it is heavily implied that his followers go to the hell vortex when they die.
>>
>>133972505
Not really. Even when she had lost her virginity to guts, she felt jealousy of Charlotte and Griffith.
She rather stay with Griffith than following Guts and make a life with him.
Despite Gut's efforts, Casca could never stop loving Griffith.
>>
Is Griffith a truly bad person? Last I checked he was bringing peace.
>>
>>133972486
The bad part of it was the corrupting of Guts and Casca's child, dooming it to a short, shitty life. The rape in itself wasn't that bad and, again, the Band of the Hawks should all have been willing to die if they were mercenaries. That baby never asked for anything that happened to it though.
>>
>>133972581

As if she wasn't hoping for a double-stuff freedom celebration after they busted Griffith out of the hoosegow.

Implied? It's outright stated that's what happened to everyone who was branded.

You implying all the followers in Falconia are branded?
>>

Anyone who gets involved with apostles also ends up in Hell. Remember Vargas?

It's likely the entire population of Falconia is going right into the vortex.

>>133973414
If you're involved with demons you go to the vortex. If you're a random joe you might end up as a night spirit, which is probably even worse than the vortex. In the vortex you lose all sense of self and stop existing, so there's no eternal suffering or anything, just oblivion. If you end up as a night spirit you spend the whole time suffering and longing for your body again.

I think it's implied Flora, and therefore other good/powerful magic users, end up somewhere nicer in the Astral Realm. Maybe other people do too.
>>
>>133973188
Vargas went to Hell because he was bitter and angry and wanted his chance at revenge more than he wanted paradise.

To get revenge on Slugdude he needed to be part of the Hellspiral.

>>133972576
Does "God Aka the Platonic Idea of Evil" still exist for certain, the chapter was retracted, allegedly for revealing too much too soon, but possibly because Miura wants to leave it open to retcon in the future.
>>
>>133973621
>Vargas went to Hell because he was bitter and angry and wanted his chance at revenge more than he wanted paradise.
I don't think they say this. They just say "anyone involved with demonkind ends up in hell," end of.
>>
>>133973883
I don't remember them specifically saying that, or at least not a super well informed person saying it, Guts may have said it, but that's just his ground-level-up oversimplification.

And we've SEEN souls getting split up in the past, they basically call Behelits the decent parts of someone's soul that get cast out when they use another Behelit.
>>
>>133972581

>>
so does everyone in berserk go to hell?
>>
>>133973976
Slan says "that's the fate of those who get caught up with demonkind" back in the original Chapter 8. Then as Puck was worried for Guts and Vargas was on the pillar of souls that appeared to drag away the Count I interpreted that as anyone who gets involved with the Apostles goes to Hell, but I could be wrong. Still though, I don't think it's ever explicitly said anywhere why Vargas went to hell.

>And we've SEEN souls getting split up in the past, they basically call Behelits the decent parts of someone's soul that get cast out when they use another Behelit.
I can't remember seeing souls split, or even the nature of Behelits ever being explained within the mango. Any idea whens about it happens?

Vargas was eaten, you have to have direct contact with an Apostle to go to hell.
It's somewhat unsure whether EVERYONE in Falconia will go to hell but if they ever get send to the slaughterhouse, then yes, they're going straight to hell.
>>
>>133974278
When Griffith changes, his last tears form a behelit that flies off to join a stream of other behelits.

There was some flowery language abut them crying out the last of their souls or something IIRC.
>>
>>133971645
>selfish gains
He created a utopia of science and progression in the dark ages, even while he was still in the Band of Hawk he had blood on his hands from the sacrifices of his friends to reach his dream.

It was for the greater good, I would've done the same thing for the future of humanity.

Griffith didn't create a utopia, what he did is the equivalent of setting the town on fire when he owns the fire department. People have the choice between living in Falconia and do exactly what he wants or try to live somewhere else and get raped/eaten by millions of monsters.

That's what Skull Knight thought too. Look what happened.

How is Grffith not bored to tears? He literally activated god mode and is just playing pretend to follow up on his late dream of conquering a kingdom but he isn't legit at all.
>>
>>133974563
The kingdom he created was large enough to host millions of people with the greatest scientific progression on earth. He also summoned humans worthy of his kingdom via telepathy.

In give or take 100 years, the humans in his kingdom would've reproduced enough to fill the void of the sacrifices left by the people that couldn't make it to his Kingdom.

He should have killed King-Pedo first.
>>
>>133971439
He betrayed his friends by selling them to demons who ate them alive. He also raped his most loyal follower who also happened to be the girlfriend of his best friend.

Id say what he did rates pretty high on the "worst things anyone ever did" scale.
>>
>>133974587
>She
When will this forced meme end, Hawk has mentioned multiple times that he isn't a girl but is a weird fat neckbeard dude that shaves his pubes and sits in his mother's basement jerking off to pictures of Griffith.
He probably likes the attention anons give him for calling him a girl, don't give him that satisfaction.

"It’s because I wanted Berserk's world to be revealed just that far, not any more than that. The appearance of god in the manga conclusively determines its range. I thought that might limit the freedom of the story development.

Yeah, it was a very dumb decision, but you gotta keep in mind he was still shocked by the fact Guts decided to leave the Band of the Hawk.

Still no reason to completely lose his mind honestly. I mean, I get he was shocked but he really threw everything out the window for some comfort and to accelerate his plans.
Though it doesn't matter since it all worked out in the end and made the princess fall more in love with him.
>>
>>133971554
Nah, they just wanted to become the rich and powerful mercenary gang they used to be, and they needed his leadership skills. Basically use him. As soon as they found out he's crippled, they dumped his ass, and some immediatly ran off to Guts. They were not friends, they were just workers.
>>
>>133975001
Agreed, considering everything was going flawlessly up to that point.

The whole event was made to show how much griffith ultimately cared for Guts and how he couldn't cope with the loss of someone.

The Manga will end with Gutts killing the savior of the world and go down as a villain in history, everyone will mourn for Griffith's death.

>>133975113
Gutts will be an inch from death when his behelit is activated, him and spooky Gaiseric will fix everything somehow and everyone goes back to relative fantasy normality. Also Gutts dies.

Griffith is as evil as it gets, he has absolutely no morals and he cares about his ambition more than he cares about anything else. Still I think it's safe to say that almost anyone would've chose to sacrifice the hawks in that situation. He probably wouldn't have done it if he wasn't crippled, tortured for the last year and had no chance of ever realizing his dream without killing his band.

Falconia is LITERALLY just a repeat of what happened in Midgard. It's a sacrificial pit with a lot of really pretty archetecture.
All of those people are going to die in order to give the god hand flesh. Griffith created fantasy hell to funnel people onto his sacrificial altar.

Ganishka is not evil. His own son tried to kill him off and at that moment he sacrificed them.

Griffith sacrificed his band because he wanted to have more power.

Ganishka had a reason to kill off his family as they wanted him dead. Griffith just wanted power.

Griffith is pure evil.

Him poisoning his brother and driving his mother to suicide after his mommy tried to poison him first is only to explain why he became a paranoid ruler who started conquering shit all around, and why he started fearing his own son, who feared him in return.

They were his freinds and only family. He killed them all escept the one he raped to retardation and the one he scarred for life. That's pretty fucked up. I mean, if this is what you can do to your closest friends I don't even want to imagine what you could do to anyone else.

Not exactly. They were risking their lives to get some money to survive. They trusted Griffithe so much they were ok with putting their lives on his hands. Nobody told them they were going to be terribly slaughtered by demons without any chance to escape because Griffith betrayed them and that their souls would be tortured in the abbys for all eternity.

However, everyone told them that they could die at any second while being in the war. Griffith wouldn't have kept anyone in his army that wasn't ready to die and abandon the fight midway.

Still a difference from being sacrificed to demons and having their souls being sent to Hell.

Did you miss the whole Casca flashback thing? He recruited children without any place to go. He gave them the opportunity to join a dangerous journey instead of selling their ass for food or being criminals and eventually getting into rpison or being killed without any kind of dignity. He looked for vulnerable people that would idolize him. The knew they were doing something dangerous, but they trusted he was guiding them to victory. They thought of him as a savior, not as aomeone that would use them as pawns and sacriffice them all. If you really can't see this you're Hawk-tier delusional, dude.

Bleach is a quality manga.

I can read Japanese. The chapter was pretty low on information. There is a magical barrier that is on the island and Puck has to guide them. It also mention that Puck could become the new king, but does not want to.

The stones in the chapter act as a magical barrier.

I like your analysis, but I disagree.

What Griffith did was foreshadowed from the beginning. I'm not convinced that him being crippled effected his decisions.

He talked about true friends being able to sacrifice one another, like true friendship is only possible when both people are entirely self-sufficient and apart in some way. Also the references to people being separate from the world, being keys that move the world, etc.

Stated earlier in the manga when Puck told them about it and how he used to fuck with the mages living there, there is also of course the latest RAWs where you clearly see several of magicians observing Guts and his party as they make their way through the islands defenses.
>>
>>133980978
Ganishka. I mean, he might not count as human because he's an Apostle, but even disregarding his Apostle transformation he has a lot of knowledge about magical rituals and shit.

Flora was probably more powerful or on the same level as him. As >>133981271 says Flora's magic holds off a fuckton of Apostles, but we haven't seen anything which says Daiba wouldn't do just as well in a similar situation. He's shown himself as one of, what, three people capable of holding their own against Rakshas, probably one of the most dangerous Apostles.

Plus, Daiba has an advantage in that he's an *incredibly* quick spell caster. From what we know about western magic from Shierke, it involves going into a lot of time consuming trances that leave you vulnerable. Daiba summoned the Kundalini with a single chant and didn't even have to trance.

Sacrificing people who'd give their lives to save yours, and expect the same in return. Awful. Raping one of them (with a demon body). Pretty damn awful. He could've at least killed her before fucking the body. Clearly wanted her to suffer. Worst thing ever? Possibly not.
As a set up for basically ruining the planet? Probably.

Nobody is entirely sure

You could argue we dont know what Griffith was like just before he was turned, he had spent a year being tortured horribly.

If you mean some inherent automatic change upon becoming an apostle, I don't think so. The entire point of apostles is not just how they become one but also what the same unchanged persons use their new powers for. A random personality warping would not add anything, only remove.

Zero awareness. Your arguments are self-defeating.

We survived despite our physical weaknesses due to our social abilities. Now we do things differently.

>>133993186
I would argue that becoming an apostle removes your normal inhibitions. They're not exactly human so their drives and fears are different. Griffith wanted to fuck her, and he did. Apostles have this habit of treating humans like we treat livestock.

I always assumed it was more revenge against Guts. During the act he never takes his eyes off of him and makes sure he's watching the whole thing.

>we can agree that sacrificing a band of mercenaries isn't exactly the worst thing anyone has ever done, right?
They were not mere mercenaries, they were like a family, what Griffith did was betray his dear friends for power. No matter how you look at it, he's a weak piece of shit, you have to admit it. I like Griffith as a character, he's one of my favorites, but I'm not going to go full fangirl mode and ignore this fact and justify his actions.
>raping Casca
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's the fault of Guts too, huh? Listen, Guts has his own free will, anon. Griffith shouldn't have gone mad for that tiny thing (when Guts left the band, I mean) AND he was destined to become part of the Hand of God. It's was his destiny.
>you can say that Griffith is any worse than anyone else in the Berserk world
No, but that doesn't remove the fact that he is a despicable narcissist with god complex. In this manga the world isn't black and white (like our world). No one does pure good or pure bad. It's all gray, and Griffith is the main villain of that world.
>>133972186
>It should also be considered that at the time, Griffith had just experienced years of torture
>it's shocking but not that unexpected he would go as far as to sacrifice his friends to escape
True.

>>133972576
Blah blah blah, if monopolize people, betray your loved ones, rape your friend, and try to kill your best friend is not evil... then I don't know what it is, and I'm pretty sure that he's planning to kill everyone in Falconia. Pure evil.

It's not because they are apostles, it's because they are fuck ups who received power. It attempts to show that power corrupts or allows corrupt minds to commit atrocities that they were always inclined to do.
>>
>>133993313
Guts no longer means anything to him, he has let go, I think it was the Hill of swords where he confirmed this for himself. I don't think the sacrificesactually dying is the point either, it's the fact they have been offered for sacrifice. A point to note is people shouldn't be able to escape sacrifice, Guts is outside causality and I guess Caska is too, along with ser skullington.
>>
>>133993361
True enough. I feel like that person who commented "Look at all those ducks there are at least ten." on the video from Taizhou now.
>>
>>133993133
Interesting, I looked at it as Griffith was already unhinged and angry at Guts for leaving and being horribly tortured only furthered that. Fast forwarding to his rescue he's now a shadow of his former self, he can't fulfill his dream, Casca and the rest of the hawks are all showering Guts with praise and (atleast in Griffith's eyes) now loving Guts more than him. Obviously Griffith is destroyed emotionally and can't physically do anything about it until he gets to be Femto, going from so weak and pitiful he almost offs himself to becoming almost godlike. Him raping Casca in that moment wasn't really about sexual pleasure and more about hurting Guts. Afterwards I think as a godlike being Griffith has become even less human in terms of empathy and is more emotionless than he was before. I don't agree with some people saying he was always apathetic from the start.
>>
>>133993460
Power is such a vague word that it doesn't really mean anything in the context of this discussion.

I said he might no longer be human due to what he gained, which let him do this. You said he gained power that let him do this stuff.

The only way I can see your argument as valid is if you're implying that also simply getting restored to his previous basic, functioning human body (which would still count as being granted power but to a lesser degree) would've also resulted in her rape. Both changes would've allowed this.

He attempted to fuck Casca as a cripple which goes to show that his gaining apostle powers just gave him the ability to what he was always inclined to do. I don't understand where you get this asspull that becoming an apostle would suddenly change your mind fundamentally.

The thing is we don't know what Griffith will do now. Would you call Griffith pure evil and a villain if he's planning to good and kill the Godhand somehow? He's done horrible things but now that he's muh kingdom (despite the dirty methods), he might actually be willing to play the hero king.
>>
>>133994103

The ends definitely don't justify the means though, and it's pretty obvious that one member of the god hand cannot stand alone against the other five.

I think we can have Casca back without killing herself/keking Guts/doing something pointless to remove her from the jRPG party while keeping that humor/drama balance.

>>133996281
They're in Skellig, following the end of the last full moon. Those are supposedly the only times where Guts is fully at risk of being taken over by the Beast, so her recovering in a nice woody paradise like Elfhelm will give her the chance to catch up to speed, get her feelings sorted out, interact with the new party, you get the idea. Doing something violent or edgy with this recovery process is unlikely, because the mere sight of Guts in his current state will be enough to make Casca hate herself for running away from reality.

If Griffith's sole goal was his ambition and fulfilling it at all costs then he should have made sure to finish Guts off; instead he raped Casca right in front of him and gave Guts such a lust for revenge, that's where he fucked up and why he deserves Guts sword far up his ass.

There's really no excusing him for that unless you're an absolute edgy faggot.
>>
>>133996398
This is something we've all been waiting nearly twenty years for, and I've always suspected that the newer hiatuses were in large part due to Miura not knowing how to handle Casca's return to her previous self.

>>133997377
The death of her friends, the rape, Guts' injuries, all of these are things that she did not take very well to begin with, but if she recovers, she'll be put in a place where she can't exactly run away from them again. It's the whole being pregnant in the first place and seeing what the child has become that makes me fear for her, because we don't know if she knew about her pregnancy before this shit went down.

That all relies on her blanking out her memories of the Eclipse. That hasn't happened even in her current state, as she still gets flashbacks to her treatment by the Apostles that causes her to enter a berserk state similar to Guts' own rage mode.

I think we're all a little guilty of this, but at this point it does feel like the story has to move on. However, with Berserker's armor it does feel like there has to be at least a few more huge bloodbaths before it's over.

Anon please, by the time Griffith said "I sacrifice" Casca fully understood that he had betrayed her and the Hawks. A part of her will never stop loving Griffith, but that will probably be emoted in the same way as Guts - unbridled anger.

This is a pretty retarded post. Guts has every right to leave this cheating broken bitch, but he won't because "lol muh sentimental past". I bet you anything that she'll be cured of her aspergers and start talking shit about Guts again and moving on to Femto. It's all in Miura's master plan.

>>133998567
>I want this to be true so bad, just for the laughs and the shit storm.

I'm afraid it won't, as her lack of physical strength combined with brand pain will probably lead to her death before she even reaches Falconia. A shame, the rape in the third film was one of the best faps of any average /a/non's life.

Chalk it up to the healing manga theory. Miura either needs to end this like Berserk deserves (violence, betrayal, gore and insanity) or ease it off like a domesticated copy of its formerly horrific self. It's up to him.

>However, with Berserker's armor it does feel like there has to be at least a few more huge bloodbaths before it's over.

Replying to myself to add on. The Berserkers armor is an extremely interesting plot device. The overall theme of the story is of growing responsibility and addressing life's problems instead of escaping into the comfort of blind, unencumbered rage and essentially escapism. The armor, the ultimate weapon, works directly against the main themes (and in the process reinforces them). Can Guts defeat Griffith without using the full power of the armor? Or will he be forced to choose between his friends (and his own life) or sacrifice himself to his rage in order to kill Griffith (throwing away all the story's progress). I'm sure Skellig will throw a few curveballs into this equation.

What year was the Berserker armor introduced? I only got caught up with Berserk in January of 2014 and the armor had been fairly recent, but there was already hundreds of images of the armor already on the internet including the fanart by that time. It was pretty shocking.

>>133997026
That's why he sold his butt for money.
To pay more childsoldiers who would be willing to risk their life for him.

Konrad and Ubik just called him out on his hypocrisy. They made it clear to him that he's willing to sacrifice young people's dream and hopes for his own very selfish dream, and that he should stop pretending to having fought for the others. He knew what he was into by playing warlord. He killed people, and he sacrificed people.

After this, Void just had to seal the deal by asking him the question, that if he, Griffith, is nothing more but a piece of shit who killed lots of people and sacrificed lots of people for a title as a noble and get more money so that he would get a bigger army so that he can gain more fame and power and an even bigger army for more land and power and better titles, then why not just sacrifice those hardcore followers who saved him from his dungeon prison right now to Hell to gain the most powerful army ever, and be the closest being to God ever (plus other nice benefits like having a penis again, a healthy body, and magical superpowers, plus ultra-demon charisma that makes any apostle cream their pants just from being near him).

Griffith said yes, on his own free will.

And thus was born Femto, Wings of Darkness.

I think Berserk needs to end with Guts killing Griffith, but for the right reasons. One of Berserk's main themes is not letting revenge get the better of you, which Guts eventually got over after rescuing Casca from Albion and gathering the jRPG party, but the Beast is still there as a coagulation of those negative feelings. That mad dog, and not Griffith, is probably the biggest threat to Guts at the moment, as one fuck up to his psyche can lead to him losing everything he cherishes, so he should try and take care of that before considering going after Griffith.

>>133998696
In the manga it was a horrifying event that I wouldn't wish on anyone, but the films screwed up so much with the characterizations of the main characters that the rape ended up coming off as NTR instead. A shame, considering it killed off any chances of further animated adaptations of the series, but following fapping to it I don't feel the need to rage every time someone says Casca enjoyed it or whatever.

>>133998806
I bet it got hard for that anon when Griffith started thinking about Guts during it.

Maybe Guts, but I doubt Casca. Not sure if the baby he took has anything to do with it or not, but there is something inside of him that's guiding his decisions regarding Guts, Casca and Rickert.

Regarding Rickert, I wonder if it was really Griffith who called for Rickert's assassination, or was it the apostles' own decisions to go rogue on this, simply because they feel threatened by Rickert somehow.
>>
>>133999375
Most likely it was just Locust getting triggered by Rickert bitchslapping Griffith/Femto.

Didn't the Hill of Swords confirm the exact opposite? His heart started noticeably beating when Guts and Zodd were fighting. Griffith passed it off as his incarnated body's (Casca/Guts demon kid) emotions and not his, but who knows if that is just an excuse.

I think Casca's love for Griffith was unconditional. Having come out of nowhere to save her from a scummy noble like some sort of angel and giving her the opportunity to make something of herself, it's easy enough to see why she wouldn't want to abandon him at his lowest. However, that sort of love doesn't bar you from loving others, and people unfortunately overlook what made Casca so irreplaceable to Guts.

quick questions

2. Does the manga go past the part when Grithith fucks everyone over and Casca's personality changes?
>>
>>133971439
No we can't.

The band killed people who went off to war. Those people are either going to die or going to survive. And even if they find themselves in a bad position, they'll likely receive a quick dead.

The way the band died was suffering, and they had no choice in the matter. And to twist the knife, this was done to them by the person they admired the most.

>>133972186
I honestly have to agree.

Actually, it took quite a bit of convincing for Griffith to go all the way.

Firstly, he was okay with the idea of living his life as a sentient vegetable so long as he lived with Casca or something. Lay down arms, the bullshit's over.

Then, when he decided to sacrifice, he wasn't 100% into it. He needed the Godhand to essentially trick him into believing it was okay to throw them all to the dogs. That basically means that, despite knowing he was a cripple, despite knowing he wouldn't get Casca or Guts, he still wasn't all for killing all these people. He was still uncomfortable with it. It's actually one of his biggest issues, since even before Guts joined.
>>
>>133991231
Nada. He wanted to find something so Griffith could be his friend ;_;

>>133983920
It is. If I remember right, after he really saw the two of them and understood without any doubts what was going on, he fucked off with the carriage.

I thought you said "the relationship between Casca and Guts". The "breakup" between Guts and Griffith was the spark, Casca and Guts was the last straw after all the torture.
>>
>>133981618
His being crippled did effect his decisions.

It was fate that everything that happened happened, including the torture.

It was not fate that convinced Griffith to sacrifice the band, but suffering, acceptance, and arguments.

I don't think the "brand reacts to the presence of supernatural evil by bleeding and causing pain" effect was active yet at the time when Void applied the brand upon the sacrifices.
Either he suppressed it, or it takes time for this effect to become active.
Else, the moment the Hawks were branded, they would have all exploded in a shower of blood from the sheer presence of all that EVIL.

That's unconfirmed. It's confirmed demon babby was almost dead and became Griffith's flesh body, along with the Egg Shaped Apostle. We don't know for sure who the Moonlight Child is yet.

They all did nothing wrong!

You're on the internet on a computer in a house that stores food and you live physically comfortably in 2015. You have parents, friends, family, a pretty okay environment.

Meanwhile Casca's been the punching bag of rape and getting shit on by a lot of characters and Gutts has to deal with Griffith fucking up his kid, raping his lover, protecting EVERYBODY around him and also chasing Griffith to get some closure.

Such a faggot anon-kun, holy shit.

All men are evil in the traditional sense of the concept. It's not a morally wrong thing to be like Christianity has mutated it into.

Griffith is innocent, beyond morals. Like Guts. Two forms of what innocence looks like in the human world.

How many times have you guys read Berserk?

What is the traditional sense?

Right, but neither of them have to deal with the stigma of being a neet virgin.

It's actually FINALLY IN FUCKING PRINT in Poland now, so I'm reading it as it's being released here, this is my second run. On volume 6 now, right before 100 men fight.
>>
>>134010900
Just the once. However, I'm rereading the Black Swordsman arc because I've only read the really shitty translations before. I didn't find the good ones until about the Golden Age arc.
>>
>>134012192
It is? How did I miss that? Is translation bearable at least?
>>
>>134012384
It's pretty damn good. Doesn't shy away from cursing when it's aproppriate. It even has a bigger format than standard, so the art is nice to look at, too,

I know the translator since he taught my bro, though, so I might be biased.

>>134010900
Twice. I'll read it again when i finish Jojo.

Something that is adversarial. That's all. It's amoral by nature, and everything is adversarial to an extent.

>>134013000
Adversarial to God's will or just to anything?

>>134013429
Anything.

Are you sure you're not confusing that with the devil or something? Where are you getting that definition from?

Griffith is adversarial to the entirety of humanity. Just because you don't see what you are doing as wrong doesn't make you innocent. It just makes you a more determined evil.
