Not sure what you're referring to
All the avatarfags and tripfags have awoken since we got off the boat, just report and tell them to fuck off until they finally kill themselves.
If you're talking about Griffithfags, they'll always be there anon. Just filter.
Daily reminder that a thread is ruined and beyond recover ONLY when some hopeless faggot announces it

It's like you don't want Casca and Guts to live happy lives.
I hate this. As soon as something gets popular on /a/ everybody suddenly turns against it.
Waifu faggots appear, contrarians start nitpicking at it and refuse back down.
The threads are ruined forever.
As OP said /a/ will never have a good Berserk thread again. Cap this.
Yeah, Berserk wasn't one of the most popular manga/anime since the board's inception. It's an extremely low key, non-prolific manga both in the West and in Japan.
You people are so fucking retarded.
we will wait for the loli spinoff, and it will be great
fateworse that death
I'm still torn over whether I should actually buy it or not. It's so damn expensive, but if I wait, eventually more volumes will come and make it even worse.
Does anyone here know what immense satisfaction it gives to have those volumes on your bookshelf?
I have a question! I watched the three golden age movies last night on recommendation from a friend, and really enjoyed them! I'd like to download the manga to my kindle, but I don't know what the reading order is, as I'm under the impression its a rather long series. Thoughts?
But story arcs are something that happen in literally in every story, regardless of format. Reading manga or not should have no bearing on your understanding of this concept.
You sir, are a boor.
Contextually, I'm assuming they're chunks of story that are named for convenience, but otherwise follow chronologically. I was originally thinking of them as separate written works which draw on the same characters and universe, at different points of time.
Why do you use exclamations so much?
I liked the one yesterday, personally. They happen, just there has to be the right elements for discussion. Honestly there's not much left to discuss, everything has been talked to death because of just how long everyone's had to discuss things.
yeah I was guessing that much, but I don´t see the point of the whole thing if it´s ironic
>ironically ask how to read a manga
>ironically ask what an arc is
To what end? I just don´t understand shitposting these days
the goal is to do this
>captcha: cause ommeme
most of the threads go to shit because of tripfags and bait in general. Just ignore them and everything will be fine
Everytime I go to Berserk threads to discuss anything I see that they are derailed already
It's his fault for not being as great as he thought he was, Guts left him with a narcissistic wound that caused the spiral downwards which lead to the band being destroyed.
Out of all the things that Griffith learned; he forgot to read about humility.
But in this case, the element that caused all of this was Guts' refusal to stay. If he didn't act so selfishly (which he regretted later), the duel and destruction of the band wouldn't have happened.
He didn't talk shit about them. He just said that they were great people, but that he didn't technically consider them friends.
Ignore him, he's stuck in the juvenile /v/ mentality.
Here, let me respond to you what hawk will say to this.
>That was a private conversation
>Guts wasn't meant to hear that
>Griffith isn't accountable for anything he says or does
Even if it gets everyone killed!
Besides, we already know that Guts sits outside the laws of causality... He can do whatever he wants. He's an equal to Griffith. He proved it in their duel.
>Rickert and the remaining Kushan are holding out against Fantasia and occasional attacks by war beasts thanks to Rickert's technology
>Monsters have taken over most of the world with only small settlements aside from Falconia
>Griffith is crowned king and has an heir on the way
>Guts and the gang have to cut a path through to Falconia for the final confrontation
He said they were great TROOPS. "Troops" is just another way of saying "bodies I need to stack to reach my dream" for him. To view your troops, the people who risk their lives for you, as being something other than friends is a sure sign of being a narcissist with a manipulative streak.
If anything, Guts gave him the friend he wanted.
He called them comrades as well, which might as well be friends. Besides, he always did his best to not waste their life, with the exception of the Eclipse, which doesn't represent his pre-Eclipse mentality well at all. Also, I'm sure there was a part where Judeau told Guts that Griffith knew most members of the band incredibly well, but I can't find it. Does anybody else remember?
He handled it fairly. Sure, he was really disappointed, but after he lost, he didn't do anything to hamper Guts any further. He just let him go.
I HEREBY ANNOUNCE THIS THREAD, SAVED
ALL HAIL GRIFFITH, LORD AND SAVIOR
He could have ordered his army to chase after him. He could have tried setting up traps. He could have gotten someone to sneakily assassinate him. He did none of that.
Exactly, there's no correlation between shitposting and whether you have an identification or not.
Well, now you know what I meant.
Guts was strong, but he wasn't invincible. Griffith could have taken him down with a good plan. He just didn't want to.
That's silly. He probably already had a plan prepared in advance to get rid of Guts in case he went rogue or something, just in case he was a threat.
Every time this happened, he didn't have an entire army against him. The max he faced alone was 100 guys, which is impressive, but it's not the band of the hawk. And he almost died that time.
But now he can face down an army of giant sea whale creatures from the depths and an actual army of demons. He's a lot stronger now then you give him credit for. He can beat any apostle in a 1v1 now granted he starts the fight fresh. That includes Zodd.
he himself said that night when he fought against 100 guys that he learned sometimes it's just better to escape
his idea of escape being that he just butchers everyone who so happens to fuck with that escape
>I want to fight really strong opponents who can fight on par with me
>I better become a monster beyond human ability and challenge humans with less than 5% as much experience as me
Right, but that's now. We're discussing volumes 8-9, right after the duel, when he wasn't so strong.
When has he escaped exactly? Not when he fought the HICK.
alright found, sorry it took a while
thinking it was post-eclipse threw me off
What would that be?
Guts himself expressed regrets at his own departure. He felt at home in the band, and he didn't find a purpose outside of it.
What do you mean? I still post often.
>and he didn't find a purpose outside of it.
You know he's just bullshitting her, though.
>and he didn't find a purpose outside of it.
I just wanted an excuse to post some oc
Guts actually cares about having friends more than he cares about fighting strong enemies.
It would make way more sense to bullshit her he other way around, that he'll stay. Just face it, Guts fucking loves fighting. He would never stay in the band of the hawks if they were just residing in castles and shit
don't bother, he'll just bullshit his way out of it
Guts doesn't "love" fighting. He said himself that he keeps doing it because it's the only thing he knows how to do. What caused him to leave wasn't the fact that they were gonna be nobles, but it was because he was really butthurt by Griffith's speech and wanted to truly become his friend by his standards. He has never expressed anything but regret from the fact that he left them.
He was definitely wrong to leave, though. He deserted his commander and his comrades for selfish reasons, and indirectly got them destroyed because of the chain of events that he started.
That's an entirely different situation and you know it. False equivalence.
He was wrong to leave because he was in an army, and you have to ask for permission to leave before you attempt to leave. If he had just done that, like anybody else who normally leaves the army, Griffith wouldn't have been so mad.
You're oversimplifying it. Guts actually knew Griffith very well. It wasn't some stranger in a car.
Yes, but that was AFTER he tried to desert by sneaking away. Griffith was already extremely mad from this fact.
So I've heard.
Well, don't worry about it, onee-chan.
I kinda agree. I wasn't sure if I was just biased because I watched the anime first, but I feel like there hasn't been the same amount of character development in the series so far as Golden Age.
I don't like Guts with a crew. The comic relief is annoying, too. But, I still enjoy the manga enough.
I haven't even touched the anime but the manga completely went to shit. Casca's regression is pathetic and Gut's new squad is bland as fuck. Puck and his light hearted comedy bits are way too out of place and ruin all immersion
and that's coming from a healingfag. It's a shame that it's still as popular as it is, there is so many better manga out there.
I know Miura is setting Falconia up to be destroyed and everyone devoured in a hideous blood sacrifice orgy Eclipse 2.5, but if it happened I can't see Griffith being okay with it.
It's his fucking pet project dream that he killed his comrades for, why would he destroy it?
>never heard of GiantDad
it's a pretty effective build, able to fight on equal ground with any other build. Jack of trades
ah okay, if you're gonna play through, you should look it up
i have done for non-pvp stuff and it still works great to the point where the only gear change i have to do is on Bed of Chaos, just to avoid having to spam estus drinks
From what I understand, Guts just really wanted to be Griffith's friend. But Griffith said that for a person to be his friend he'd have to be someone equal to him, since he's a megalomaniac and an insane asshole with messianic delusions.
Griff also mentioned that being equal means having a dream and not leeching onto the dreams of others, so Guts fucked off to become the strongest sword dude and his own man, so that he could face him one day.
Now this is the important part - Griffith thought that he could manipulate Guts, so when he completely lost control over him he had to vent and fucked Charlotte just to prove to himself that he could manipulate some another person.
It blew up in his face a lot, and instead of living with his mistake he decided to fuck over his friends to fix it. Griffith did plenty wrong.
some people like to do a replay with certain conditions set by themselves.
and NG+ does tweak some things on the boss fights to be little harder and it's a good opportunity to find hidden bosses
Being a Berserk fan is the worst
No clue whats gonna happen in the end
The story is fucked
The fucking creator is gonna die before he can finish it
I dont even like much about it anymore
And these threads are so bad nowadays I end up throwing up in my mouth when I see them
Is there any universe worse to live in than Berserk?
>There's demons and shit
>You're either going to be raped or tortured, sometimes both
>5 beings occasionally pop in to fuck with you
>Griffith is himself
>Ganishka is equally bad
>Now there's Fairy Tale monsters too
>Did I mention rape?
>God is probably evil
Gantz might be worse
At least in Berserk you can die
Gantz some dickhead will bring you back to suffer again with everyone
And some clone of you will end up going instead
So then there's like 3 of you all equally suffering and confused as fuck
Midland is like Mr. Roger's Neighborhood compared to some fictional universes.
Living in the world of "I have No Mouth and I Must Scream", for instance, is so much worse it's unreal.
despite how dumb as shit it sounds, this is the post that makes any argument worthless

Berserk threads were always ruined by 'my first manga' level of shitty posting
The content appeals to 13 year olds far too much for its own good. To be honest as I get older I find myself wanting to bother less and less with the occasional chapter releases. It was never really that good, it's literally just one of my first manga that I read, a whole 12 years ago
Let me kiss your boo boo OP by storytiming a berserk chapter.
No one really remembers this little gem.
I wouldn't call that edgelord, it's more like Guts wanted to scare people away because the brand puts them in danger. And, you know, the whole eclipse thing turns him off from making friends again just to lose them.
>just watched movies
Holy shit, I've never been so fucking angry in my entire life. I don't know what your guys opinion is of the films compared to the manga but fuck they do a great job of getting you to understand Guts rage.
I'm about to start reading the manga, I've only ever read the first chapters leading up to the Golden Age arc, is it worth a read as I assume they had to cut stuff in the movies because of run times? Or should I just skip till after the arc?
Read the manga anon. The movies miss on alot of build up, characterization and great moments. If you thought the ending to movie 3 made you angry wait until you read the source material.
Also, action scenes dont look as good in movies. Guts is supposed to be lightning fast but he doesnt look that much faster than anyone else in animation.
Sorry for the waiting, continuing.
Still not as bad as stepping on a lego.
>That panel on the right of Guts looks weird as fuck. Look at that leg.
Now that you mention it, it makes me think of this.
What is it with guts being so attractive to lolis? I dont get it.
>discover berserk just this year
>finish anime, movies and read the most recent chapter of the manga
>everyones celebrating because guts left the boat
>can't quite relate but still cheer because the series continues
>let's go to /a/, they're probably huge fans!
>Its just a shit posting contest
>"everything has been discussed to death"
Subconsciousness is a weird thing. I had a dream I had a talking metal penis once.
I wish there was a real social club for people like me. I don't actually feel welcome in Berserk threads.
>>"everything has been discussed to death"
It's true, but I don't mind. You can start a Berserk discussion with me if you want.
Hey guys Im gonna post this page then take a short break. Something I need to do first. Will continue if the thread still breathes.
But now I'm really starting to feel it again and I'm considering leaving. Most of you are just too juvenile for me.
I'm gonna guess about 5 years. Long enough for stuff to happen with everybody, but not long enough to radically change everything.
It's also enough for Rickert to learn stuff with the Bakiraka (and unfortunately for you, for Erika to grow up). You know, I think it would actually be really interesting to see some survival-societies growing among the monsters and learning to prosper in this chaotic world.
I'm 24. Honestly I'm starting to be tired of hanging out with angry teenage boys.
>Say all this shit
>Get so mad when one person does actually decide to be their own man you get thrown in a dungeon and tortured into a vegetable about it
I hope Griffith dies before I do.
I just wish they would sperg out less about unimportant meta issues.
>f anything, Erika growing up means that she's more likely to die, since being a loli automatically protects you from harm.
Wait, you want her to die?
>I am very interested to see a realistic fantasy world with people trying their hardest to survive. It was horribly brutal when trolls came around that village, I would like to see what it would take to protect villages and kingdoms. How would people grow food? Would they eat fantasy monsters? Could people kill dragons? Is money still valuable? How are the nobles doing?
We agree 100% on this. It would be fascinating. As for money, it would surely lose value since the supply of it would now be way greater than the amount of people. Like some sort of reverse-inflation. I think people would mostly barter.
>Waiiiit, Cascafag was a girl? Are you fucking with me?
It's ambiguous. Cascafag claimed to be both on different occasions. However she's been insisting she's a girl in emails with me (around 200 of them by now) since the beginning, so I give her the benefit of the doubt. Also made me watch some really mediocre harem anime for girls recently, so...
>But now that Rickert and Erika are out of Falconia, her chances of dying have gotten very low.
It got so close when that masked apostle grabbed her, too. When I saw that, I thought it was the end for her. Honestly, I felt kinda disappointed that she survived, even though I have nothing against her and don't want her to die. But that scene just felt like such a tease.
>I just think he or she is trying to get close to you to figure out who you are.
Doubtful. She hasn't done any tentative to dox me in forever. Probably for all of 2015. She just doesn't care about these threads anymore.
It's my favorite work of fiction by far. Admittedly, though, I don't know many of them.
>After he used the Berserker armor the first time, he got the white bangs. Eventually, all his hair is going to turn white.
How do you know? Is his hair getting whiter each time he uses the armour?
Would be cool to see an arc that covers a short part of skull knights life.
But I also like the mystery around him.
Ok I knew the armour was exhausting but I didn't know it was that severe. I thought the almost blindness came from the fight against the sea god.
I started the manga this summer and finished 2 weeks before we got off the boat I cant really relate but..
we have to get back on the boat to go back to the mainland right.... this worries me as it puts the waiting time for the manga to finish.. even fans have died while he was still on the boat.. but did he add the time island to somewhat speed things up and its hinting the manga might finisher sooner than later now?
>We're the only ones who discuss Berserk in there threads. Not implying anything.
Ok, I was just making sure.
He's pretty much right. We're not the "only" ones, of course, but we do discuss it more than almost everybody.
Anybody but you can call me pathetic desu.
Also I come around to these threads once in a few months maybe, but everytime this fag is here replying consistently throughout the whole thread.
These threads truly went down the shitter with idiots like you thinking this board is some kind of tea party.
4chan X has an anonymize feature.
If you don't want to use an entire UI overhaul I'm sure you can find an individual script as well.
The issue with these types of posters is that their style is so distinct that forced anonymous will not really help.
Okay guys, Im back. I shall take you away from the tripfags and shitposting.
You can just sense the guilt and hatred.
I want Broderick to win the Farnesebowl, but damn, he's up against two super alphas who slay demons like butter. I fear he's going to die in a friend zone Judeau style
Hey anons,if youre reading report in. I dont want to be the only one left in this thread.
She threw herself on him. She was butt naked too. He refused. Nah guts is already the winner. Theyll end up together when casca becomes unretarded and still wants griffith.
I miss guts like this. Putting up an edgy exterior when the truth is he genuinely cares about people.
Agreed. He was an actual character and acted as guts' conscience. Now hes just there for silly bullshit.
Its kind of sad. He needed to keep going no matter what happens but the guilt weighed on him so heavily he has to keep telling himself that he shouldnt care and that theyre weak otherwise hed be mentally and emotionally crushed.
Guts has really developed alot since then.
True, we never see how guts came to start putting on that exterior. But we see how he sheds it off and cools down his hatred.
that and the fact that the Apostles recognize him as a foe, as far as I know, he killed 6 apostles up until the second eclipse, I think it would've been good to see him polish his Apostle killing skills up until when he met Puck.
if guts had forsaken his humanity for power and teamed up with ganushka and skull knight, could they have contended with griffith?
Glad to see I'm not the only one that took a liking to Broderick, even if he is kinda responsible for the whole boat thing. Hope he survives
Ganishka got BTFO by Griffith just appearing, he spilled his thunder spaghetti just by looking at him.
Skully still can't do shit against a God Hand even by becoming his own bag.
Guts still doesn't have neough causality on his hands, so no.
Did you ever hear about Overlord?
>There are orcs, trolls, demons, zombies, undeads and all short of other fantasy horrors constantly prey on humans
>Beastmen, trolls,... have their own kingdoms and think of humans as foods they can eat whenever they want
>There is also an undead king who commands those monsters. He thinks of humans as insect and thinks that killing hundred of thousands of them is an entertainment
>Death is most merciful thing you can get if opposes him. Since he controls life and death, he can revive those who die when being tortured, heal them to the fullest, have them tortured to death and revive them again
>There is also a rape farm under his rule, where all sort of interbreedings occur and the females can be healed and revived as many time as it needs to giving birth for eternity
>They also doing experiments with humans, like cutting off their limbs and feeding them to the victims, healing them and repeating the process again or roasting children and feeding them to the parents
>The best thing is humans can do nothing to oppose the undead king, he is like level 100 and the strongest human is around level 30
>tell them to fuck off until they finally kill themselves.
That's cute, anon.
I just bought 22 volumes for $110. Just save a little bit of money from each paycheck and buy that shit. It is INCREDIBLY satisfying seeing them all lined up so neatly. Makes me so happy. If you're gonna buy them I suggest using TFAW. DO IT NIGGA.
The God Hand wants evil to consume the world, which includes Falconia. Falconia is Griffith's dream.
Griffith's reinforcing his army, as evidenced by the apparent high activity in Falconia's forges. This army is, of course, not to fend off magical critters, and there are no other civilizations to face him.
Griffith's is building an army to face against the God Hand.
It was in volume 17. I have no idea how he did it before incarnating on earth.
Considering Falkonia is the only save haven in the world which is save from rampaging rape trolls and worse things from other dimensions, while the rest of the world is basically left to fend for itself, could it be that Berserk is a critique on modern society?
Think about it, you have a prosperous part of the world which is kept save by giant walls and monstrous weaponry, while the rest of the world gets fucked by exactly the same weaponry (of course the strongest weapons are still in the hands of the prosperous). All this could only be achieved by a history of backstabbing, murder, plunder and many fallen civillizations and now the government acts like they are the ones with moral superiority, while basically watching everything die around them.
WHY IS THIS PICTURE SO HOT
WHY IS MY COCK SO HARD RN
I watched the adaptation and didn't read the manga. I already know I fucked up, but can someone tell me how the fuck did Guts survive eclipse, so I can just pick manga from where anime ends?
Also, from my understanding, Griffith didn't need Guts anymore the moment he left, so it's on him for recklessly fucking the princess. Am I wrong?
Start from the start again, the anime misses some things and also changes a few in the ending. If you start from where it ends you're going to be confused as fuck (and also miss some really cool stuff).
