Miura's influences then:

>Western movies (Conan the Barbarian, Excalibur, The Thing, Hellraiser, Flesh and Blood, Spirit of the Beehive, etc) and Japanese comics (Devilman, Fist of the North Star, Rose of Versailles)

Miura's influences now:

>Idol master
>jrpgs

This sums up anime in a nutshell. Then cool shit. Now just moe and autism.

It was 90's moe back then.

Guts' facial appearance was inspired by Rutger Hauer.

If anyone was curious...
>>
>>149181889
Of you watched that movie, it's pretty obvious that the whole story is a ripoff of it, not counting the supernatural elements.
>>
>>149182000
I'm pretty sure Miura said it himself in an interview before as well.

Gambino is a 1:1 copy of Rutger Hauer's character in Flesh and Blood.

Then why do you keep on living in this age? Just to whine? Seems awfully exhausting. Kill yourself and relive your "golden" age.

Isma is an idolmaster girl transported to the world of berserk.

Short form of Idolmaster = imas
Re-arrange that and you get isma. And I think she's based on a specific girl.

>>149182185
What's so edgy about Berserk other than the Berserker armor?
>>
>>149182060
But I don't follow what he said, I didn't even read the manga, and I noticed it.

>>149182271
I think people have a different definition of the word edgy nowadays. Granted, the meaning of the word was nebulous at best.
>>
>>149182271
The setting
>>
>>149182271
showing rape and ripping off your own arm sounds pretty edgy to me
>>
>>149182271
The rape, excessive violence, gratiutous nudity, griffith's character, guts' character specifically his bloodlust, to name a few specific elements. Just because I say call it edgy doesn't mean I think it's bad, but you can't deny early Miura put a lot of focus on the grim and dark aspects of fantasy, which is evident especially in the prologue.
>>
>>149182717

I think that's justifiable because they live in a fucked-up world with fucked up events. Rape and ripping your own arm off is a good way of showing that, as opposed to some intellectually enlightened method.
>>
>>149181640
The right side is actually more lewd though.

>Back then: Rape
>Now: NTR

Someone needs to do something horrible to Miura so he'll feel rage again. Who will answer the call?
>>
>>149181859
drawfags need to get on this
>>
>>149182185
That's a legit concern when your favorite dark fantasy turns into...whatever the fuck Berserk's become. Weird too. You don't see too many writers pull a 180 like that, and Miura was an adult when he started it.

Berserk didn't become popular because it was a moe manga.

Miura's then: edgy youngster still in his chuuni phase

Miura's now: see the light, got over his chuuni phase, started to mellow out, want to start a comfy party/family

He should play something more fun like Tokyo 7th Sisters.

Miura should just marry Chihaya's VA.

I miss the 90s.

Now there is a bit of blood and everyone is "edgy" "edgy"...honestly I miss that gratuitous violence everywhere.

Remember when battle shounens like Seiya were blood festivals?

I don't care if people call me edgelord, I want early 90s over the top violence to return

Jesus christ what. It's a pretty much opposite of edgy. Do you not remember why Guts did that? Is that why you are spouting this nonsense?

He gets into a different Idol series to replace the loss like Aikatsu.

What now?

Somewhere along the line they got pissy about blood and guts on TV and the OVA market shat itself which was where most of the violence jack tier shit was able to air.

Blame the west for that shit.

What for the financial shitstack? That's the world markets, can't do shit about that.

Stopped reading right there.
It doesn't matter if it is justifiable or not. If it is justifiable edgy, it is still edgy.

What's your beef with edgy?
>>
>>149181640
That unicorn is100 times more creepy than rapehorse tho
>>
>>149191874
Non at all. My question is what is YOUR deal with it?
Why is something that has, in terms of blood and gore, "mature" content automatically bad, so everything edgy you like must get defended with "it's not edgy if it makes sense" or similar excuses? People just delude themself by trying to elevate their taste, because being edgy does now equal badly written, which is bullshit.
>>
>>149188963

Whoa whoa whoa, lets not go overboard here.
Can't we just put a dog turd in a paper bag on his front porch and light it on fire?
>>
>>149192055
Can't we do both?
>>
>>149192020
Not the guy defending it, but you seem to be implying that it being edgy is automatically bad.

Blame Neon Genesis for revitalizing the TV anime market, making cookie cutter TV-friendly shounen shows more fiscally viable.

Anno strikes again!
>>
>>149192130
Except that wasn't me.
My beef is with people who believe they have to tone down the edgeness from Berserk or just claim it isn't edgy because muh justified dark setting, because apparently they can't enjoy the manga with the thought it could be edgy.
>>
>they're in the Kingdom of the Elves
WAHH WAHH ITS NOT DARK ENOUGH!!!

>>149192498
It's been 10 years without a rape, cut them some slack. Niggas be thirsty.
>>
>>149182845

>rape
GS has more rape and it is just beginning

>nudity
Most modern anime shows nudity to a degree, monster waifu simulator have more skin that the whole Gatso manga

>Griffith character
do you mean androgynous no h-homo male characters? get in line anon, there is a lot fo that shit.

>Gut's bloodlust
There is always a edgy, hardcore, bloodlust character in most manga. The only difference with Beserk is that he made it MC.
>>
>>149181889
I thought he was based on Rutger Hauer's character in that one post-apocalyptic film Rutger did.
>>
>>149194761
>Griffith
>no homo
Griffith straight up fucked dudes. He is at least bi while heavily leaning toward men. The only interest he has ever shown in women was the princess but he was obviously only interested in her for power.
>>
>>149198068
Griffith is gutsexual
He's only ever shown interest in Guts
Every other time he fucked someone it was for power, money, or to just fuck somebody over.
