what the fuck did they do to guts model.....
Has anyone else noticed that they gave Guts a pointy ass pencil head?
pic related, Guts strong manly jaw
>>143568378 They still totally fucked up the general shape of his head, its a minor gripe but still
It looks fucking horrible, I can't imaging possibly fucking up harder
At least the new video game looks pretty fucking sick, even if it is a musou
Reminder that Miura always had a say on the production
This anime is proof that he literally gives no fucks about Berserk anymore and just want to play idolmaster all day long while giving bullshit excuses like
Fuck him, I hate fucking miura, the fucker should just give berserk to someone who cares
>video game literally has better graphics than pre rendered cgi
>Show can't even get the look of the main character right
I don't even know what to say
I tried watching the episode again just to see if i didn't hallucinate last night
It is really that fucking awful
sorry to break the circlejerk but it's fine, the upgraded look is very whimsical and fluid which fits the over the top, gritty fantasy setting better than the left which looks stiff, rigid and trying too hard to take itself seriously
FUCKING ANIME AM I RIGHT
US OTAKU AND OUR ANIME CULTURE
GEE I SURE DO LOVE ANIME
>thinks they took out puck because he clashed with the tone but doesn't realize puck was never actually introduced until after the golden arc happens
>doesn't know how Guts escaped the ritual
>clearly hasn't read the manga or watched the movie
>this is the person they have reviewing the new series
jesus christ ign is terrible
REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE WHY CAN THEY NOT JUST DO IT RIGHT FOR ONCE THIS SHIT SHOULDNT BE THAT HARD TO DO
Guts in the musou looks fucking terrible, what the fuck are you talking about? They made the model to look similar to this god forsaken anime.
Man, I miss Ganishka. That fucker made Zodd look like a pussy cat.
guys i think the first episode was a fine adaptation of the manga, here is a link if you want to see it
The anime is being rendered in real-time while you watch it.
there is the beginning introduction in the manga that has puck in it but it takes place after the Golden Arc. Guts doesn't actually meet him until after the ritual which makes sense considering the original anime was all about the golden arc
Guts finds Puck after the events of Golden Arc, that's why he's not in there and why he's not in the previous adaptations, it has nothing to do with "the tone of the show" as that dipshit reviewer claimed.
there's some art choices and certain scenes that are distracting, but overall the content is pure berserk. The artstyle works much better in motion, and for some of the bad shots being posted, there are plenty of cool shots in the episode (hoping the bad ones will be changed for blu-ray). The tone and writing are preserved, so I think the issues with the animation are forgivable. Japan only ever puts in for quality animation for sol crap like non non biyori or hanasaku iroha, so I don't know why people are complaining now when most action anime have the same problems + much worse writing
but yeah though thick griffith
thats a nice thought
>you will never bake cookies with him
>you will never go candy and cake shopping with him
>you will never laugh and grow fat with him
>guts still gets captured when they skipped the lost children arc
they've dug themselves a grave by the second fucking episode, jesus
>entire thing is abortion with 1/10th the quality of the CGI ridden OVAs
>only two points that sounded good
>ripped tracks from the OVAs
Why would they release this?
Did no one step back and say hey, "Guys this looks like dog shit what are we doing?"
I think Berserk made a shitload of money, why did they cut quality so hard on the first anime it has gotten in almost 2 decades?
I think they did a good job with the retcons they made. I want lost children just like everyone else, but that would be better as a stand-alone movie. We'll see how they do the transition into conviction arc, but right now I'm fine with arc skipping.
Perfect world though: slug count -> conviction -> end with schierke's troll adventure + lost children as stand-alone movie.
>Anime is getting downgrades
What a time to be alive
>in game graphics looks better than the CG in the movie
So, those movie guys are all going to have to commit suicide after this right?
Its slightly better than the anime so I'll take it. I have no idea why these games can't do better than the decade old Millenium Falcon game, but the musou doesn't make me wanna vomit quite as much as the show.
How the fuck is it that a video game has outdone everyone else with decent looking 3D?
>still no anime following GG style
I mean seriously when i saw this trailer for the first time i thought how much better CG would be in anime to follow... Nope
it's genuine, but i had really low expectations for the anime when I heard cg. I was expecting everything to be sanitized for tv, not just skipping the lost children arc. So with the shots in town, guts's butchering the rabbit, and the really graphic scenes of casca, I have hope that the conviction arc might actually get adapted intact with its more disturbing scenes
Turns out artists who draw for a living opposed to artists who model 3d characters in an interactive medium and generally have far larger budgets have different level of skills.
>shows the carriage scene that happens before the count arc, cuts straight to the arc where farnese captures guts
I just wanted to see pic related animated
>They've lifted the back of the hair model into her hand to make it look like she was gripping his hair
yeah they do a lot of "tricks" that are very poor and look horrible.
Guts tripping the soldiers by running into their legs looks so goddamn bad. I can't tell if Guts is static or is they are lazily sliding him forward.
this guy would call a piece of literal shit the best meal of his life if it was to shill, wouldn't he?
Absurd amount of clipping.
I stream anime and watch dubbed and like it
Even I think this is a festering wet pile of dog shit. It is literally suffering to watch. The amount of QUALITY makes it look like some 3D modeler novice threw in some linking park and posting test.MP4 to youtube.
The horses has the same panic animation.
The front right horse and the back left horse was in sync.
Are there any more QUALITY screencaps from the show that make a good 1:1 with the manga for comparison?
Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here?
>People getting triggered by "White" Casca
>The picture being tossed around everywhere has like 5 different instances of Casca having that same skin tone prior to the 2016 show
The current anime isn't great but people getting buttmad about perceived whitewashing is fucking retarded.
It's kind of weird that they didn't just keep the hand drawn frames, since it seems like they have some hand drawn stuff thrown in here and there anyways. Though I guess maybe the art style is a little different.
Just watched the 1st episode after finishing Kabaneri and holy fuck...
This is legit the only anime that I have ever dropped on the 1st episode.
Why the fuck can't a decent studio animate Berserk? I wouldn't even mind Madhouse taking 7 years to make it if it'd be good.
Even Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, and pretty much any video game has better 3DGC. Hell, fucking Final Fantasy is getting a movie with fucking amazing animation.
Why the fuck can't Japan hire decent animators for 3DGC outside of video games or video game stuff?
Well it would be to hard to get audience with so many popular medieval video games, "fairy tales with a twist" genre, and stuff like game of thrones and lord of the rings are big.
It could be quite a success if handled with care.
My golden role with online ratings is to treat them like grades and it looks like this show is going to fail at this rate
Nah, they'll probably fuck it up. Just you wait. We'll get actual footage of the game once it's released, and we'll learn that the trailer we saw now was pre-rendered. No blood splatters, no dismemberment, Guts will look several times worse, etc.
Because it's a recognizable name, it seems to be cheap, and they are likely planing to make more money up with merch?
It's be done plenty of times before, and not just in anime.
God how can someone be this fucking stupid. Lurk more faggot
>telling me to lurk more

And before you talk more shit i must remind you i've been here since 2014, so you better keep your shit to yourself and respect the senpaistachi.

Trying to act all smart you fucking pieces of shit? do you think i care about some stupid bullshit you try to pull just to look better than me? Sir, you are WRONG. Damn this place full of rude and stupid motherfuckers trying to wave their imaginary dicks to see who's better by some idiotic factors like "muh i've watched 9000 anime" or "you must have wasted your whole damn life on this site to have the right to talk".
I know you're trying to make me mad, but i've read all your game already and you can't, so give it up and admit your mistakes. At least have the balls to do it.
Likely here or any other place where it common to post shit like this. People in advertising and marketing research public opinion and what thier consumers want or hate. It's part of the reason why just about every business has thier own Facebook.
But those people browse too, for example Pokemon and other companies admited to reading forums.
Wouldn't be surprised if something crunchy roll came here time to time.
However the chances of the people behind the new Berserk reading your comment (much less giving a fuck) is slim.
Conquer the world with his home-made demons. It was a solid plan.
>resorting to pitiful bait images
Say no more
I bet your face is sour
You can't control this floor
You know i've got you poor
Twitter, in all honesty. You can probably find the director and artists individual pages, the studio, the musicians, crunchyroll, ect.
I agree something must be done, this is an unreasonably low level of quality. It's just not right.
Guys can we get back on topic?
I want to actually complain to someone. If this means that we don't get another anime fuckup of a series that's been anticipated for years, maybe it's worth it to send angry comments to someone involved.
This is almost perfect, except 3 and 1/2 stars can be controversial or new series. I think the more you stay in the medium, the more likely are to reduce your standards to find hidden gems.
That said, if this was supposed to be their episode to catch an audience, just how much worse will the animation get from here?
Zach Snyder could make a fucking fantastic Berserk movie. I hated Man of Steel and BvS but Snyder's muted colors and atmosphere would fit Berserk like a glove. Guts cutting people down in slomo with saturated blood like in 300 would be fucking sick.
I'm getting hard just thinking about it.
The problem is they fucking dont. We all saw /pol/ shitting in the Berserk threads defending Casca being white and calling original Casca a nigger. She is a light mocha goddess and they shouldnt have changed her. Not to mention the shitstorm they are throwing over L being black in the live action.
>implying a "pure" /a/ wouldn't throw a shitstorm about that
It's funny when you're being ironic but when you actually look into it you realize that /a/ shares a lot with /pol/, and it doesn't necessarily have to do with crossboarders spilling over. Deep inside we have lots of things in common.
>tfw I keep repeating the preview just to listen to it a bit more
Ive never heard anyone here complain about Casca being tan in the first place. Although while i hate how they made L black for no apparent reason other than "muh diversity" im not going to call him a nigger then say a dumb ape shouldnt play the smartest character in the show. That isnt /a/, that's /pol/ crossboarders leaking
How/Why does Berserk keep getting re-done but at such a goddam low standard?
>Its first episode, “The Branded Swordsman,” is a grim, sanguine mess embellished with pitch-perfect writing, masterful texturing and world-building mysteries that will be enough to take me through the whole series.
>they're capable of animating like every other studio
>slap CGI ONTO FUCKING EVERYTHING
>MORE CLOSEUPS OF CGI PUCK YES THIS IS WHAT WE NEED
>every odd couple minutes there is a drawn scene
I don't know if I should keep watching to ep3.
Akame ga Kill had waifus and appealed to a wider audience. Beserk is older than most current anime fans, and thus has a niche fanbase. Plus, with all the controversial topics in it, it would be hard to make a appealing, faithful anime without pissing millenials off.
>8 years of boat
>3 subpar movies for the Golden Age that are now starting to look good
>mainstream actually praising this anime
Only hope left is the Musou game being decent, but Miura has to be the biggest troll in the industry to allow this shit to continue.
Fucking kill yourself, faggot.
Snyder is the worst fucking hack to ever hack a comic's point to pieces.
Guillermo Totoro is the only director in Hollywood who could ever come close to doing Berserk justice.
Bad. A post-modern audience can't handle actual slow, thoughtful pacing and can't live without violence or something every few seconds. Game of Thrones is a good example that.
>A post-modern audience can't handle actual slow, thoughtful pacing and can't live without violence or something every few seconds.
I mean I love Berserk but come on, are you actually this delusional?
90% of Berserk is Guts hitting shit with his big fucking sword
Would be extremely difficult to sell.
The Golden Age arc is the easiest for people to get into since it's got so much heroic shit going on. And it's got all the huge battles and spectacle. Which costs money. Which would be very hard to procure for the first season of a show based off a Jap comic book that hasn't had a proper adaptation ever.
Unless you start with the Black Swordsman Arc like the manga, in which case you're going to struggle to get the normalfag 'Murrican audience to buy into Guts being Edgy the Edgehog as a protagonist the way youths reading comics would.
I like the episodic idea mostly because we would get to see lots of parts from the story and not just select ones. It's like 2-3 hours compared to 12 or more depending how long a season would be
I don't remember being bored while reading Berserk and something happens in almost every chapter with large parts of arcs being just fights.>
And today's Top Bait Post award goes to this fuck.
This fucking show. I can't get past the fucking animation. Bubuki Buranki and Knights of Sidonia wasn't this fucking jarring.
It's like they tried to pull off the End of The World OP from Stardust Crusaders, but ended up making something that looks like a bunch of 2nd year 3D animation students spat out.
WHY THE CG?
you should have seen neogaf and leddit's reaction to the berserk game's trailer with that caska love. Today's audience wouldn't handle the sex good.
97 is a very good adaptation. It's missing Wyald, has some filler battles, and has more of General Adon being a turbotard but it is enjoyable and doesn't stray too much from the manga. It also has some absolutely beautiful stills and good action.
Black swordsman arc would be difficult to do rightly so it makes sense but movies and TV shows constantly use shit where the world is already fucked and a character is already changed by it. Could be like in the manga where we learn why Guts became how he is
The point of Berserk's violence is you grow to detest it and love it like Guts does. It grows from knowing only it, to liking to, to accepting just the sword in your life to using it only as a means to an end.
You're supposed to grow with it, not just wank to it.
it's not that bad. I literally just watched it.
I feel like people are exaggerating because they either dont like cg in general, or just can't appreciate what it brings to the table.
It wasn't that bad. Sure it wasn't a 10/10 masterpiece like everyone wanted it to be, but what fucking adaptation is???
>they either dont like cg in general, or just can't appreciate what it brings to the table.
Pretty much everyone who isn't going in blind acknowledges the third movie's CG was decent compared to this, so no, it's not the fact that's it just CG. It's that it's awful CG, and everyone knows they have access to better models and animators.
We were eased into Game of Thrones with reliable Sean Bean as our good father character.
We needed him to be human and relateable to ease us into that myopic manatee's world of murder and cunts and it was a huge "shock" to the audience that our rock was killed off at the end of the first season.
But I will give you Walking Dead. That shit has been terrible writing and edgy dumbfuckery from the start with ne'er a good character to find our footing with.
Yeah, the biggest thing it does is introduce us to the fucked up nature of the world, introduces the Apostles and the God Hand and explains how the Behelits work.
It could do well dispite what other think, Netflix and HBO have it good run drama so time to character build shouldn't too bad. At the same time game of thrones as well as horror shows are doing well enough.
You just have to make sure that the new audience is willing to have patience so a strong opening is important to so everyone is excited to see what happens next. Make sure the soundtrack kicks ass is all to important too, it's a big part why the 1997 version shined
CG doesnt work with Berserk because it doesn't suit Berserks art style, themes or direction. CGI is fine for sci fi and the occasional monster but it just doesn't work with Berserks style.
Seriously tho why not just use assists from the game which looks way better than this. MGS4 had like and hour long cutscene using just the games engine.
The black swordsman arc would be a good way to start and everything else like the apostles and the god hand I feel audiences wouldn't have a problem with because GOT does get pretty complex at times and people still follow that. I would have the Black swordsman arc as the first episode and then the rest of the season would just be the golden age and all of that with season 2 being the Guts we met from episode 1.
I've said it before, but despite the limitations of their budget, it's clear in the '97 anime that the creators really cared about what they were doing and did their best to bring the story and the characters to life.
The recent movies just treated it like a template to have a bunch of craptastic action sequences with no character development or story or world building in between.
This seems to be on the same path as those awful movies.
Finally figured out what this reminded me of.
You want yet another eclipse adaptation with THIS shitty animation?
Casca was always brown.
This new anime managed to fuck that up, too.
Just watched it. Animation is ass, i didn't like the music, but it's still great to have berserk back on screen. Maybe it will inspire some secondaries to read the source material. Then be filled with despair when they realize Miura will die before finishing the manga
I waited so long for this and we get this. I don't even know why I get hyped anymore.
Should have dropped another bomb on Japan. Yes I'm mad
Now hopefully people will stop shitting on the 90s show so much.
>Berserk starts out with a mediocre adaptation and progressively gets worse with each iteration
>Miura will die in your lifetime
>Without having finished the manga
If there's a hell then I'm in it
Unless there's a trick of the light going on, she's never white.
Always darker than anyone else in the Hawks except maybe Pippin.
No one's crazy about the opening. Everyone wants the preview insert song.
>they fucked so badly that they even used Hirasawa's song just for the fucking PREVIEW
Don't they actually dim the lights when really flashy actions scenes happen on TV shows today.
But in the 80's and 90's every explosion was followed by 10 seconds of extremly bright strobe-light
When the left version came out, I thought I could take it. Even though parts of it looked pretty ugly, it seemed to at least use some decent animation on the parts that were animated.
What we have now is something I'm not going to pick up. It looks even cheaper (which is quite an achievement).
It's a cheap way to make something look flashier than painting on a cel could generally muster. It's gone out of fashin with modern digital animation since that can achieve much flashier effects without so much literal flashing.
That said, at least it's not Gao Gai Gar.
The villain's lair is always flashing fucking horribly.
Here's a webm. I'm serious when I say DO NOT WATCH if you suffer epileptic siezures.
>Cascade healed but falls asleep after recovering
>Guts and Farese talking about what happens next
>Farese realized this is her last chance and tells Guts how she feels/semi forces him into sex
>Cascade walks in on them and runs away
It's 4 am so please don't be too harsh on my ideas
>The female strikes the male to spark his arousal and ensure his virility
>In preparation for the act, the female clears the nest of debris, showering the male with pieces of body jewelery and trinkets. In turn, the male does a seductive dance and vocalizes his intentions.
>The female squawks. She is ready.
>Soon, the humans will mate.
I remeber watching this in the middle of the night with my lights off
>my face when I'm going to live to see an era where the only animation I care about is what's coming out of amateurs' garages
>my face when I won't even be forty
The death of film was the death of animation.
I have no idea. GGG aired from '97 into '98 and the infamous Pokemon episode was in December of '97. Right in the middle of GGG's run.
I need to make more Berserk webms.
Despite the complete shit of the new series, it's nice to have Berserk threads not poisoned by a certain delusional tripwhale.
actually, now that I think about it, you're right
the Rosine fight and everything leading up to it was hard as hell, and afterwards Guts was so exhausted he could barely swing his sword, which is why the knights captured him
are they really gonna say in the new anime that the little girl sticking a sword 1 inch into his hip is enough to make him get captured by the holy iron chain? that's pathetic and a disservice to the character
