Out of place moe/chibi/loli shit.

Poor pacing.

Guts is constantly getting weird shit added to his "character model".

Could go on. The low fantasy setting with minor high fantasy elements was cool, but the transition to full high fantasy didn't work.

I like fantasy so no, I think Golden Age was pretty great but everything after has just gotten considerably better.
However I'll be disappointed if the story keeps fucking dragging on.

>>135664233
It doesn't suck, but it focus too much on shitty characters (Isidoro, Farnese, Serpico...) and Guts adventures seem somewhat unrelated to the main conflict in the series (Griffith) for a long while.

It only gets better after the Golden Age arc. Falcon of the Millennium Empire arc was the best arc. Also retard Casca is best Casca. Post your favourite Casca pics.

>>135664434
When you really look at golden age arc it's story isn't much more than an edgier shonen story.

It's the same old song and dance of Elite guy gets mad at lower tier protagonist for eventually getting better than him and turns on everyone despite being admired by everyone.

There are some nice moments and as with all of berserk character interactions are nice and all that but as a story it's not too far from Naruto.

Why can't they just do a traditional fucking series? It's not like Berserk doesn't have a fanbase.
>>
>>135664233

What, the conviction arc was great thought. After that it went down hill.
>>
>>135664498
Millennium Falcon is the best arc after Golden Age because it has Griffith vs Ganishka, which follows Golden Age's logic (sacrifice -> Griffith obtaining what he wants). Golden Age is so good that Berserk's storyline can't run away from it.

In fairness, I actually think this all has a great pay-off when Miura shatters this kind of trope with his gritty realism. I sorta like it (as long as he doesn't go overboard).

There are plenty of somber moments after the golden age, it's just after the somber moments surprise surprise you have a lighter moment afterwards so fans don't sit there and wonder "wtf am I watching this series if absolutely nothing good ever happens in it?" and it can be more than just rape and murder. In other words the grim and gore become an accent instead of the main attraction which the story should be.

Also
> a grim setting(which is actually rare in anime/manga).

I can't even say read more manga since so much of even the casual shit is edgy garbage like Attack on Titan, Akame ga Kill, Tokyo Ghoul etc. This is the shittiest of shitpost

*fixed*

After loli witch and batman armor where introduced, Berserk started to go downhill.

Tower of Conviction arc is one of the best in the manga only topped by the Golden Age arc.

Madhouse isn't bad, the people who pay Madhouse to make the adaptations are the shit ones. They get paid to do a certain number of episodes and work with the budget given. If Berserk's publisher wants to give them a shit budget for a 12 episode adaptation of over 100 chapters. Then we will get a shit adaptation.

Madhouse makes perfectly good adaptations when they have the budget and episodes to do it. Look at Parasyte and HxH.

Agree with you 100% I've been a long time fan of the series. Problem is the fanbase are fucking retarded and will refuse to accept any criticism. Main reason I left the massive circlejerk known as Skull Knight.net

Mention the obvious, that the manga was better off when it was a dark low fantasy and that the addition of lolis was just Miura encroaching pedo fetishes leaking into his work. Everyone flips their shit.

If you expected realism in Berserk you are either

A) Retarded
B) Where lied to about what the series was like.

The only 'realism' is in the political struggles and general quality of life in the setting. Which all goes straight to shit after Miura begins to fap to [email protected] and goes full lolicon.

Thanks for confirming your stupidity.

I suppose fuck-huge swords mean realism to you.

The sword was symbolism; the magic added after vol. 24 was pure laziness. Did nothing to enrich the story. It was flat out lazy writing to shoehorn certain characters hat would otherwise be useless to the story.

Plus, a big ass sword is not as unrealistic as a loli witch with fairy powers and Batman armor that turns you into a terminator.

Never said it wasn't Dark Fantasy so maybe you should go "all green arrow".

I said it was much better before vol. 24. Which it was. It went from low fantasy to high fantasy and it's lost focus ever since vol 24. It's not longer Gut's journey. Now it's all about his merry band of men.

you can use your "underage edgelord" meme all you want. Wont change the fact that the manga took a 180 after vol. 24 and has been getting worse and worse over the years.

Conviction arc is my favourite. The whole tower part is incredible, especially with eveyone cheering on Mozgus while he fought Guts.
>>
>>135664233
It's just evolving. I understand why people think it becomes shitty: loli witch, chibi reaction faces, guts getting a party and the general tone being more lighthearted, the fucking boat etc. But most people forget that, after the Eclipse, it became even darker than it was during the black swordsman arc.

Sea God wasn't an arc, it was just a short boat trip. I mean, in story time, obviously. When people look back on it when it's finished 30 years from now no one will really see it as more than just a short transition from one part of the story to another.

To be honest, I only enjoyed that arc because of the art of the empire and for all the madness that was happening everywere. Ganishka was a great character too. It was like reading an edgy version of a fairy tale (especially at the end) and I found it interesting. A shame that you didn't enjoyed. Oh well, everyone has their own taste, I suppose. Now, it's been a long time since I read that arc... maybe if I re-read it my point of view may change. Who knows ? Take care. See you.

I liked conviction arc the most, so obviously I don't agree. Shit with Ganishka was great too. Say what you want but the Falconia chapters, especially the lastest ones with Rakshas fight were pretty damn good as well.
Boat ride was the lowest point.
