I mean the series is good and all but it's really not a masterpiece. The quality of the series declined after the Golden Age and it honestly lost its mojo. It's not bad per se but it's not great as it use to be.

Personally it's one of my favorite series but even I don't think it's a masterpiece.

Is this bait or are you one of those faggots that believe that getting on the boat was the best arc.

>>135104007
Conviction arc is considered the best by numerous fans.

>after the Golden Age

why do so many retards think this is like, the pinnacle of Berserk? The entire Conviction Arc/Tower of Albion is so much better that I can't even compare them.
>>
>>135104069
>Conviction arc

Fuck no. The general consensus is that the Golden Age is the best arc.
>>
>>135104173
>general consensus
Not really. It has a thrilling payoff, sure. The overall atmosphere of the Conviction Arc is just more interesting.
You're probably so fond of the Golden Age, because you got introduced to Berserk by the anime and didn't like how the series changed thematically over the course of the story.

I don't care if she's literally a whore, I want to love Luca.

I'll agree that it's not a masterpiece because it's been mediocre ever since so many people joined Guts. I'm all for a slower section that's more lighthearted, but this shit needs to pick up.
>>
>>135104287
No nigger I've read the manga first and to this very day Golden Age has been the best.

Why the fuck do you think of all the arcs to be animated it was always the Golden Age arc. Well it's because it's the best arc and most fans agree.
>>
>>135104152
Golden Age created the main conflict in the whole series whereas Conviction arc is basically fights plus the introduction of dumb characters. Thinking that this arc is the best falls under special snowflake syndrome.
>>
The only thing good about the series is the art.
>>
I love it, but I can see that after golden age arc, there were some low points. But the art is usually beautiful, the characters are deep, and interesting. But its not great in direction sometimes.
There is also an other problem: there is no way it will end in our lifetime. I mean FUCK, we got off the goddamn boat, and we go on a hiatus again. Goddamnit, this manga started like one or two years before my birth, and still is not even close to ending. Being a fan is the most fucked thing ever.

>most of fans agree
Not on /a/, newfag.
>>
>>135104418
>Golden Age was animated twice, because it's clearly the best arc
You're probably right. It had nothing to do with the fact that it was the only completed arc when the anime was released. Also it's completely unreasonable to start a new movie adaptation that aims to be a complete telling of the story from the chronological start. That would be silly!
>>
>>135103635
>The quality of the series declined after the Golden Age
But Lost Children is after the golden age.

>>135104753
Not him, but adapting Black Swordsman when you're not going to go past Golden Age would have been stupid.

Guts/Zodd tag team when? I want to see them wreck up shit together.

nice try dipshit, but I read that arc before this website was even created. Probably even before you were born

The saddest thing about berserk's fandom is that there are people who defend these characters

I mean come on

I'd like Puck a lot more if he was always drawn more realistically.

Try harder.

My favourite part was Lost Children.
Debate me.
>>
>>135104803

They already did team up, they killed the Kushan leader, remember?
>>
>>135104976
the arc is 18 years old. I'm not surprised you didn't know that though because I'm sure you weren't born by then/only found out about Berserk through /a/ or some other internet shithole
>>
>>135105048
The arc started then, fag, not ended.

>>135104803

How the fuck did I forget? Looks like I need to re-read the whole series.

Guts taking that stinger through the fucking face as a legit strategy was pretty badass.

>>135105016
No because you're obviously a fucking correct person

That "fairy" girl did things to my dick.

Love this fucking meme. Conviction is overall superior.
>>
>>135104866
Farnese is the best character in the entire series, what other character has had that much character development other than Guts? Casca is the only really annoying character and was since the very beginning, at least now she's somewhat charming and provides comedic relief with her retardedness.

not even a competition

No other scene really conveys just how metal the Berserk armor is. And this is Guts barely conscious, if Guts went at Grunbeld fresh as he is now he'd be fucking dead.
>>
>>135105228
Conviction gets better towards the end and starts pretty mediocre, especially since it's following up the Eclipse.
>>
>>135105448
That's your opinion and I respect it, but for me the whole thing just gets better and better after the Eclipse and peaks at v20.
>>
>>135103635
>The quality of the series declined after the Golden Age
You have objectively shit taste.

Everyone knows Conviction is the best.

Best characters, best fights, best writing, best art, best pacing.
>>
>>135105967
Not to mention sex scenes that you don't have to feel bad about popping a boner to.
