get hype for Guts vs Zodd
that's just 18 frames long, but sure
tfw they'll do all of Milennium Empire in 12 episodes
Just stop being fucking cunts. It took us so long to get an adaptation that goes past the Golden Age Arc and you just sit here and complain. Get used to the shitty art/CGI and enjoy the ride.
I just finished watching the 1997 Berserk series. I proceeded to begin watching the 2016 series, And got through maybe 30 seconds of that opening bar scene before turning it off and deciding never to watch it again because of the godawful animation and music. I was honestly perplexed that it could be so much worse than the original. I came to /a/ despite never browsing this board to get some answers.
This video is just as trash.
How does anyone decide to do this? It is so bad that it literally should not exist. It is a total mockery. If the budget is so damn small that this is the best they can do, they might as well just not produce a series at all.
It disappoints me because I was looking forward to another season of something similar to the original in quality.
>I was honestly perplexed that it could be so much worse than the original.
I liked the original. I mean it wasn't perfect but it had certainly a very unique and lovable charm.
It's not really the CG that makes the new adaption shit. There's something else, like terrible rush of events that makes everything feel stale and lack impact. It's really hard to describe, but everything that happens in the series feels less "real" than in the manga or in the 90's anime. It's like the new anime is just a strange mass of things that doesn't take any form.
I'm sure foreigners can't understand what is good
you guys are blunt and dull, and have no sense after all
why does prejudice prevail among overseas fans ?
they tend to just admire stuff which appears to be complicated and sophisticated, and discard something simple-looking though it could be deeper than you think.
they are failing to find the inside profundity
that's too bad
This one was one of the more recent pictures of him
It was also voted 5th best in this list
Are you fucking serious? Maybe they thought it was a comedy?
What if this is a japanese fans conspiracy to save Berserk franchise?
Fuck everyone who bought the 2016 BDs. Specially that anon who not only bought them but also and said he was going to buy the 2017 too so show "support".
Why is Miura allowing this shit show to happen again? He simply does not care anymore, does he?
>worse than Berserk
So we all know that Guts killed 100 soldiers back in the Golden Age, but how many do you think he could kill now, with the Berserker Armor? Say they're the same soldiers. Berserk? In control (with Shierke's help)?
1000? 5000? 10000? 50000?
Personally I'd lowball it at 5000 if he's Berserk. Don't know about when he's in control, I haven't really decided how he compares to his Berserk form.
> Come to /a/ to post about berserk
>kids with autism bitching and not discussing in depth analysis, character development along with symbolism or over-arching themes
>realize /a/ has become a safe haven for Autisitc under aged kids who can't understand such concepts
All these have been discussed time and time again. We have nothing new to discuss regarding the story. The only news we have is about the anime. But since I'm with you in that first part, go ahead. What do you want to talk about?
I'm almost current with berserk and I just wanted to say I've never been so disappointed with a story as much as I am with Berserk. The atmosphere changes so much from the beginning and casca became the most annoying character in anything ever for me. Probably won't even bother getting current. dropped
How the behelits are an allegory for descisions made out of desperation that turn sick and twisted.
I just like how the behelits are a sort of overarching theme of intention is what makes descisions important and integral to their execution and outcome
I just think it's sort of weird how no one ever bring up the batant setup of the nature behind the behelits and how guts has one with him that is evidently his.
I remember a panel where the skull knight says how there is a way to fix casca, but only if casca wishes to be fixed and how it may not be the case that she wishes to be fixed.
So if casca chooses not to be fixed. That means what guts is actually striving for is not attainable. So the next thing on his list is to get vengeance on Griffith. So maybe we come to a time where guts even with the berserker armor is not strong enough to beat Griffith. Since casca will never go back to normal would he sacrifice her to the behelit in order to obtain vengeance against Griffith, he would be stuck in the same "sunk cost" fallacy that made Griffith choose to sacrifice since he literally had nothing left to lose.
Do you not think it would be completely within her character to grab her nipples and enjoy herself?
We don't know (and I don't think) that the Count's behelit is destined for Guts's, like SK (or was it the old witch?) said it might be that it's using Guts as a way to reach it's true target.
>So if casca chooses not to be fixed.
Honestly, after all this time, if Casca remains retarded I will honestly probably drop the manga and curse Miura. Fuck the boat, fuck the sporadic releases I want Casca back because I like her character even if she was pretty useless during the Golden Age no matter how hard Miura tried to make her seem badass.
>Since casca will never go back to normal would he sacrifice her to the behelit in order to obtain vengeance against Griffith
Also fuck the manga if this happens, if Guts actually becomes and apostle it undermines his character and pretty much every single arc of the manga so far. I do agree that the jrpg party needs to be called tho, half of them don't even serve a purpose to the story, case in point fucking Puck.
I just feel like that could be the end or development of a story. It certainly follows the over arching theme that anger is "an all consuming fire".
And it would fit perfectly especially if muira wanted a "tragic" end.
But it is.
Every time someone made a sacrifice that we have seen so far has more or less tragically lost everything and been brought to a point where they have nothing left to lose.
When Zodd references the sacfeifice after he first see's the beheelit he says "when this mans ambition crumbles"
It was specifically worded that way and Probably not by chance.
With the same kind of soldiers as then, pretty much nothing would stop him. Even back then they were pretty hesitant to fight him when he was just one-shotting a single person at a time. We already sort of saw that with the Chain Knights, Gut's killed something like 8-9 of them with just two attacks, and only went down because he was already heavily injured and couldn't keep fighting. But Gut with the Berserker armor would be cleaving rows of men in half without stopping until he's dead, and you couldn't pay any mercenary to fight that.
Warhammer Fantasy - the Anime. Guts is Sigmar?
The manga explicitly spells it out that people activate their behelits when they reach their breaking point; when torment and despair become truly unbearable. In Griffith's case, it was described as suffering so powerful that he tore himself apart. It's not so much a question of whether they have something to lose or not; it comes at a point when enduring has become impossible.
You're wrong. Shinsekai Yori is better tha any tv show to date except The Young Pope. Golden Age is not even the best part of Berserk. And le ironic nigga talk a shit.
We watch anime because we like it, but also because there's quality we can't find elsewhere. And Berserk is a manga, not an anime.
We all ready got all the "profoundness" ya gonna get in the original manga, they AIN'T ADDING SHIT, and the extra content of the three FUCKING "games"; the "new" "anime" is just going to be a RE-RUN, a REEEEEEEEEEEEE-RUN OF SHIT!
So the sums up, my black Amarican black pure-bread anti-gaijin Asian black nigga, why we are sucking Mirua's cock
IMO, the idea of struggler is much more similar to witcher books.
Oh, then is it better the Ulysses? How about the works of Tolstoy? Or Dostoevsky? In Search of Lost Time?
The musical works of Richard Wagner?
Oh but it is a visual form of "entertainment"....
Citizen Kane? Dreyer? Even Kubrick?
hey kids, i have a both griffith and guts models on SFM, tell me some idea and i'll animate it.
Go fuck yourself, I didn't mention any of those art forms. Be passive aggressive somewhere else.
Oh, and Ulysses is shit. Tolstoy is shit also. You got Dostoevsky right only because you're memeing most popular out there.
Wagner is also shit.
Kubrick is overrated. Citizen Kane is more important historically for the art form than as a story comparable to other mediums.
>implying movies are art
Why the fuck do they keep doing this. Aren't nips supposed to be autistic about these sort of things? Who the fuck allowed this anime to happen, and why wasn't it canned after the first episode got produced?
I actually lost a little bit of my hype for the new chapters because of these PVs. It's like they haven't fixed a fucking thing.
>why wasn't it canned after the first episode got produced?
I can count on one hand the number of TV anime I know that have gotten canned/curtailed mid-production, and none of them were short 1-cour things.
>le ironic /pol/ ebin trolling
People who pretend to be /pol/ for kicks because it's edgy are a bigger cancer than /pol/ by far. It's certified "alt-right" redditors thinking they've found a new home base
Noice. Here's a happy Christmas Golden Age.
Sometimes it's amaze me how detailed Miura work is and how much Miura had to do a reaserch, for example here is Berserk's Pope crown
And here is the real one
There's a shit ton of clipping in there though, if i get gud with actual animation and upload something on youtube i'll most likely shill it here.
I won't upload shit if it's not at least better than the new anime though
He's also the guy who did the character design for the original Idolmaster. It's all his fault.
>Somehow made Griffith ugly
This studio is a sad joke
This is seriously pissing me off. The best manga in history can't get one DECENT anime adaptation? To top it all off, we're stuck in a constant hiatus since the start of the manga.
Being a Berserk fan is absolutely suffering.
I got it, we stop becoming fans and only watch it ironically, like most of /a/ anyway. They can only grow stronger if we enjoy it unironically.
L I S T E N I N G T O F E E D B A C K
>it kills me
That's the plan, kill the fans so he doesn't have to keep making Berserk chapters.
looks like shit
but is still berserk, even painted with a coat of shit i would still eat it up the fucking 2002 game looks better
The game acknowledges it being 3D (it probably uses mocap too). The anime tries to mimic being drawn in 2D which is why it looks so abysmal. Basically, cell-shading was a mistake.
Who needs anime when you've got the OSTs and the manga?
>Roderick gets all the credit despite enabling the purgatory boat episode
>Jerbrome totally passed over
It feels like the new series is punishment for not appreciating the movies.
It's strange to me that an artist with this dedication to authenticity would also be this heavy-handed about shitting on religion.
You're thinking of someone else, dummy.
You know, when Guts said "you only taught me me how to swing a sword" that sound harsh, but actually, that's the most important thing for Guts. If there anything Guts needed to know, Gambino taught him that.
>tfw thought the movies were okay long before Berserk 2016
>feel vindicated in the worst way possible
I just don't get why Berserk gets all this CG shit. Who looks at the manga that is all about realism and insane detail and decides that featureless and stiff CGI dolls are the way to go?
So when do you think Gut's party is going to start losing members?
Some of them have to die by the end of it right?
Are they really going to air this?
The muscles on his arm don't even flex or tense when he's swinging or drawing his sword.
It's like someone's first 3D animation.
Who is this even made for? At this rate, there's no reason to watch this if you've read the manga, because this sure as hell doesn't look like the manga made animated.
Seeing as he puts it on hiatus after every other chapter, yeah, I think he hates it. I can understand losing passion for something after so long, but fucking hell, at least give it to someone else to fucking finish.
Japan seems to have a thing where a creator always seems entitled to the things he creates even if he hates it.
How many times has that faggot Miazaki gone into retirement only to come back out of it because he didn't like how "his" company was doing things?
>Said they would listen to viewer feedback.
>Everything is still fucking the same.
In the minority of characters that actually get worse the more you know about them and the more they develop throughout the series they are in.
Vapid boring ass useless harem bait that looks worse with short hair.
Anon, the last half or more of the manga has mostly involved the main character fighting random shit while new useless or soon-to-become-useless hangers-on join his group. It's massive bloat with minimal actual progression or relevant material. I have a hard time taking anyone seriously if they tell me that a narrative with that much dead weight can stand up to shit like Joe, 7Seeds, Real, Takemitsu Zamurai, Lone Wolf & Cub, etc.
>start reading Berserk
>it has Puck
also anime looks like shit
>Marigold flowers symbolize friendship
I have never heard that before but I'll take your word for it. I'm not very simple, no. I'm a programmer for one of the world's largest engineering firms so you better not fuck with me or I'll hack you and get you arrested for loli porn.
Don't remind me of Femto's dick. I am questioning my heterosexuality over here.
glistening demon cock sopping wet demon cloaca
I dunno. I think if the idea was to hurt Guts it would have been better to use his human dick so it'll be like "it is MY dick that fucks your woman". On the other hand, the way she reacted to it it was clearly mighty demon cock.
How do people watch this shit, I thought /a/ was better than this.
I'm a big fan, own all volumes in English and Japanese respectively and I wouldn't watch the 2016 series if I was being paid for it.
This. All anime in 2016 and for at least a few years prior has been complete shit. Berserk is shit but it's no shittier than the other shit, so we probably just think 'oh well at least we've had this shit before and know roughly how it tastes'.
should i do it after or before i read the manga?
>I thought /a/ was better than this.
Never speak those in the years of our lord 2014 and onward.
>I thought /a/ was better than this.
Am I the only one that genuinelly likes the Sea God arc?
The fucker's eyes match those of the animal skin he wears. He is dead inside. And the dead can't give good advice to the living.
I just read all the chapters and now I feel that I made a huge mistake.
Welcome to the club.
It won't get any better from now on, trust me.
>using the same type of effects Ufotable uses for their servant fights.
>makes it look even worse because of how fucking slow their CGI models move.
I don't even know what to feel anymore.
>mfw this studio suddenly begins adapting all well drawn medieval manga's.
>mfw their next project is an adaptation of Vinland Saga's first arc.
No they're not you dumb nigger. Kushans were a real thing and predate Mughals by centuries. God it's worse than /pol in here.
Is Vinland Saga really just shonen shit? I wanted to try something different with a similar mood to Berserk, someone recommended Claymore but it was too shallow for my liking.
>Kushans were a real thing and predate Mughals by centuries.
Calm your fucking nipples you turbo-autist. I corrected myself right after.
The original Kushan Empire lasted until about 300 AD. The Mughal Empire was fond of using war elephants and actually used similar armor to what is drawn in Berserk. Which is why my first thought was that. They both held the same region.
So Caska is probably persian master race?
Vinland Saga is great until you reach farmville arc. It's beginnign to get good again though.
I don't know what kind of retarded faggot told you it was a shonen though? Not that there is much of a difference between most edge 'senin' and shonen manga nowadays. If you are thinking it's edgey for the sake of being edgy like Tokyo Ghoul. It isn't.
I havent read the manga is a long time, which arc was this? Dark as fuck.
In terms of the story she's more indian/paki mix. Supposedly she was based on a real life friend of Miura. Usually when you see a dark skin girl in manga if it isn't outright implied then she is most likely just a country girl from Japan.
Pic related is a legit black (african)character.
It gets recommended a lot by Berserk fan so it's the next on my list. They recommended me Vagabond and that didn't disappoint, it's quite good. Unfortunately, I got burned out and stopped halfway, but I'll try to finish it soon.
>I got burned out and stopped halfway, but I'll try to finish it soon.
Glad I wasn't the only one. I fucking loved the beginning and the entire Sasaki Kojiro arc. I then suddenly hit a wall sometime after Musashi fought that Kusari gama user.
what the fuck is wrong with nips
>Still using the same shit 3D animation
Casca is obviously Mexican
>sticking your tongue in someone's ass during medieval times
It's like you want to die.
But you posted Gutsia right now, anon.
