What do you think about Guts? Is he just a mary sue badass with big ass sword or something more than that?
>mary sue badass
Mary Sues are not constantly wrong about what they do, they don't win fights by being inches away from death and they don't get their lives ruined this fucking hard.
He's very, very far away from suedom.
How can anyone consider Guts a Mary Sue after all the trauma that happened to him?
Mary Sue has nothing to do with how strong a character is.A Mary Sue is a perfect character without flaws or the author's self insert.
>What is Guts powerlevel?
Increadibly low, but he still prevails through pushing himself to the limit.
That's the appeal of the character, same as Batman when he's written right.
I dont think Gatz is a human, maybe a demon or something else, because even if the series has fantasy elements, humans are still humans, dont it seems strange that only Gattz has super strenght and vitality?
OP I brought you the Jesus of Gary Stu's as a example.
I'm gonna start lifting, lads. One day I'll unlock Guts mode.
No, he's physically a match for fucking Zodd, even without the armor. That just doesn't mean as much because apostles usually have weird powers besides brute strength.
>people still thinking Berserk is anything but trash
What's happening is part of a phenomenon I wrote about a couple of years ago when I was asked to comment on Kentaro Miura. I went to an Akihabara anime store and bought and read a copy of the "Golden Age." I suffered a great deal in the process. The writing was dreadful; the art was terrible. As I read, I noticed that every time the main character fell in the prescence of others, he would accidentally fall on a woman and grope her breasts. I began marking on the back of my volume every time this was repeated. I stopped only after I had marked the volume several dozen times. I was incredulous. Miura's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that he has no other style of writing.
But when I wrote that on My Anime List, I was denounced. I was told that new anime fans would now read and watch only Berserk, and I was asked whether that wasn't, after all, better than reading nothing at all? If Berserk was what it took to make them pick up anime, wasn't that a good thing?
It is not. "Berserk" will not lead our children on to Masaaki Yuasa's "The Tatami Galaxy" or his "Ping Pong: The Animation" It will not lead them to Satoshi Kon's "Perfect Blue" or Ryūtarō Nakamura's "Serial Experiments Lain" or Hiroshi Nagahama's "Mushishi."
Later I read a lavish, loving review of Berserk by Hiroyuki Imaishi. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these new fans are watching Berserk at 13 or 14, then when they get older they will go on to watch Gurren Lagann." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you watch Berserk, you are, in fact, trained to watch Gurren Lagann.
Post yfw you found out Guts was a she.
>being this fucking stupid
>Post yfw you found out Guts was a she.
it's hard to keep a straight mind in berserk threads. When the three retards aren't around, these niggers come up. We just need someone who shits up the thread to argue with. The power of stockholm syndrome
when is the jewest coming back?
it's been like this for a while. OPM only made things worse, but not that much.
At their second fight Zodd he pushed guts around pretty hardcore
Hes like batman in so many ways, nice comparison
its not like "hey guts take this armor and you will kick some fucking ass"
i believe so
im just starting to look like 15 yo guts now, it takes a lot of time haha (you fucking pervert)
there have been worse escalations of newfags. Surely this one is, like any other, fucking abysmal, but I'd hardly say it's the worst one that ever happened.
the thing I can't stand is how this shit spread everywhere. I cannot turn my head around without seeing some normalfag screaming 'saitama the best omg top' and posting hilarious meme images about bald-guy. It's pretty sad.
at least the anime made it possible for the ones who run localizations here to finally decide to bring the volumes here, so there's that. Pizzalandia wins again
I didn't think we'd finally see the day.
I'm still going to wait for evil genius
I'll have to say though, I was expecting a big epic landing or a elfheim seen from the distance spread or something like that.
We can usually hold some decent discussions when there are no namefags around. Believe me, when Hawk or any other decides to show up the threads become hilariously bad, far worse than this one.
/a/ never gives a shit about shit, and that's why I fucking love /a/
>attacks on France
>MADOKAMI IS KILL
>fucking turkey goes full WWIII
>off the boat
I just fucking love this place.
>What have they done this time
They realized /v/ is too small to contain their shitposting, so they emigrated to other boards posting their 3D and /v/ image reactions, see the growing of DK's expand, MGS and the like image reactions lately.
/v/ is mind numbingly bad. It looks like a parody of what it's supposed to be. Let's admit it, it's not like /a/ isn't complete shit to a certain degree, but it's nowhere near as bad as there
It was always pretty useless. Originally it was just about fanfic self insert characters who everyone loved for no reason and stole the focus from the actual cast, but then people tried applying it to MCs in actual works who had similar characteristics, and from there it just got more and more vague. There's a more useful alternative to pretty much every definition someone has for it, besides the original.
People say hawk and no-name ruined them, but they really just made it more obvious how bad they were. Releases were poorly paced and infrequent as fuck for years, yet there were still points where these threads were daily.
It's not as bad, it's still not good. And it pretty much caused the tripfag drama. Regular, general style threads with no new content inevitably cause tripfags or at least notorious shitposters.
>not understanding the story of Berserk stems from Miura's passion for Arthurian legend, Conan the Barbarian, and Friedrich Nietzsche's philosophy and cited literary loves
>failing to see the extremely esoteric and philosophical symbolism of Guts and Griffith's characters and relationship
>even thinking stupid terms like "Mary sue" apply here
ITT: Unread degenerates who read Berserk like it's just another piece of weeb shit with power levels.
>get op armor
It can kill him.
He can die.
Except every important enemy.
Guts barely survived the fight. Grunbeld is still alive and isn't even wounded.
>Daiba and his familiars
Berserker Armor was useless and Guts was almost killed. Kundalini (the water snake) was defeated by Schierke and killed by Serpico. Daiba is still alive.
Guts not in his rage mode + Zodd. They didn't kill him.
>The Sea God
Guts in BA was almost killed by his heartbeat alone. He won only because the mermaids rendered the Sea God harmless.
>It's not like the majority of them know what it actually means anyway.
It seems you don't either, since Saitama is seen at best as an average looking young bald in his series.
Its split between raging poltards, shitposters, and the last third trying to have a decent conversation.
There are magical threads where the stars aline and it becomes good for one thread, but its so rare.
Read Zarathustra, there is quite a bit. For example, you can see the three metamorphoses of the spirit in Guts, On the Friend is more or less talking about Guts and Griffith. On the Tree on the Mountainside is relevant to Guts. There's more.
