Yeah, it'll probably leak a few days before
Probably a day after the leak
Can you tell he went digital?
She loves it, she just doesn't have much spare time to read it though, jokingly she said she'd become 40 before she made it to the end due to her schedule.
I hope to see this animated some day, I was always a big fan of Pirate era Naval combat
Here's a bunch of uncollected art, don't really want to post 50+ pictures
Also the art from the 98 calendar
Art Miura did for the 2016 anime
That's all the art I'll post
>I though he was sent because Locus told him to or some shit
I seriously doubt that.
Locus seems like he's second or third in command, after Griffith and Zodd unless he's just a bodyguard. If there's one thing i REALLY don't think anyone who serves Griffith so blindly and revere him as a god would do, it's insubordination.
>Rickert said that if Griffith wanted him dead he wouldn't have made so much mistakes
When? I don't remember that line.
My guess is that pic related hit Griffith like a ton of bricks, and he realized Rickert could be a threat. And, just like in the past, he put on a pretty poker face in public and later turned to his subordinates and asked them to do the dirty-work, like with Adonis and Guts.
Hell, Griffith even sees Rakshas flying after them, he didn't seem that upset or in a hurry to stop him.
what's the difference between a chapter & volume?
1 volume=many chapters
I don't know, I heard it's because he recently switched to digital, but I imagine he was pretty busy when he was working on the past few chapters also since he's a supervisor on the new anime, did new art for the blu-rays, art and interviews for the guidebook
Question is, did he switch to digital for good or is he just experimenting?
I just don't think you can do any better than the old way, no matter how good you are with digital
What do you guys think the end will look like?
Here is my personal take:
Just before the very last fight with griffith, skullnight appears and tells guts
that he's him from the future and that if he fights griffith right now, he will die and become skull knight himself, unable to ever kill griffith. He got sent back in time via the behelit that activated when he fought griffith at that time.
Guts understands, stops and asks skullnight when the time will finally come. Skullnight pulls out his sword swallows it and creates a distortion that leads them to the idea of evil. The idea will then have a conversation with guts, with guts' fate changed as a result of it. He then gets thrown back in time and faces of griffith rips his fucking head off and wins.
It should end
on a cliffhanger
not end at all No matter how Miura ends it, it will be underwhelming as a result of the lo
Am I the only one who can't root for Guts because he's a
Is this the coolest thing that happened in berserk?
he fucking owned Guts, how the fuck did they let this happen?
it's the way he screamed in agony in the final moments of the last episode of the 97 anime that really drove it home for me...
>The Black Swordsmen.
>He's a swordsman
>He isn't even black.
It's like they aren't even trying
Posted by Guts' new VA
The motherfucker hasn't losed his touch at all. Now, new chapter's art is because he's getting used to digital, becoming lazy, or because the nature of this arc?
>Dub of Berserk 2016.
>All original VAs are being replaced.
>No more Mark "Like a Truck" Diraison as Guts.
>No more Kevin "Broadway" Collins as Griffith.
>No more Carrie "Suck my Cock" Keranen as Casca.
Well, this dub is going to be shit...
>Wendee Lee as Luca.
Okay, I'll give it a chance.
What's really sad is that Diraison really wanted to voice Guts again. He was very disappointed that he wasn't called in to audition.
Here's what I'm hoping for:
Griffith to be completely humiliated and exposed
Griffith to return to his Husk state, and not be killed.
Casca to become unretarded
SkullKnight's back story to be completely explained
Moonlight boy to become a "Real boy" and return to casca
Guts to do the right thing and Marry
SLAN!!! and live happily ever after
Well, I mean parts do get that goofy, and more often than ever before, but for the most part Fantasia has been tolerable. We're just all hoping for Miura to deliver on the last page, which alluded to Schierke and Farnese experiencing the exclipse

>Diraison really wanted to voice Guts again.
You're right, that is sad.
Then again, maybe it's for the best that he not get involved in something so horrible.
It all returns to nothing, huh ?
That one hurt
>>Romanized name: Farnese
>>Romanized name: Pippin
The BotH translations are really bad, they're the ones who did this and the "that's my Griffith"
Nigga hold the fuck up..
"That's my Griffith"..
That was NOT just an /a/ edit?! They seriously thought that was a decent translation?
BotH is shitty don't get me wrong, but they didn't do the "my Griffith", this is their translation
Honest question here..
Who is the "leader" of the God Hand members? Void or Femto?
Void is obviously the oldest, but Femto/Neo-Griffith seems pretty powerful/important
Do you think Femto will betray the other members and "soar to ever greater heights", basically becoming the Idea of Evil itself? It would be pretty weird for Miura to add that line if he wasn't planning something big. What could be bigger than 1-upping his peers?
>Linking to literal whos twitter
Also it's about the same age he did Futatabi, no shit this is known shit. New to the board friend?
>Tfw you were never good at drawing to begin with and you never tried to improve so you don't get depressed by seeing people draw 1000x times better than you
Guts was ripped before that.
You know what needs to be done.
Well, answer me this: how many of the God Hand bother to come down to Earth to do anything at any time besides Griffith?
Slan tries to fuck\kill Guts while she possesses some flying intestines, but that's it.
With their power they could do whatever, but Griffith is the only one who still holds "human" ambition. So what you're saying isn't that much far fetched.
Having a black cock up your ass can't be THAT painful, maybe you'll actually like it. I second this anon's >>154778948 suggestion, and would like to implore you to perhaps send us pictures if it worked or not.
So did Donovan use a condom or did Guts swallow?
give me your idea for the best ending of this manga
>griffith will never be your boyfriend
>griffith will never have a fine dinner with you in the fanciest restaurant in Falconia
>Griffith will never sacrifice you to the God Hand
Puckuses the crimson behelit, sacrifice everyone in the JRPG party, kills everyone of the godhand and becomes the benevolent god of the new world, who just leaves humanity the fuck alone.
If your girlfriend gets raped you're not a cuck.
If your girflriend willingly fucks another person, then you're a cuck.
But even then Guts and Caska weren't actually a couple or anything. They had feelings for each other and had the time to fuck only once, 40 minutes later the Eclipse happened.
So you can root for him all you want.
I'm not inclined to root for someone who took black dick tho, but you do you.
The fact that the progression is so slow it's mainly because Miura never had any fucking clue on how to end it to begin with, and probably didn't expect his creation to have this big of an impact.
Imagine you make the pilot to a TV series, but then that pilot instantly becomes a classic and people start taking inspiration from it to make their own stuff all over the world.
How do you end a series your fans care so much about? Your success might have been accidental, maybe you didn't even want this to be your "big project".
Void seems to be the leader still, but cinsuder that they all follow the flow of causality dictated by the Idea of Evil. And Griffith having the idea inside him might s¿mean something.
Did you really not see that coming 20 fucking years ago?
Power level wise, there's nothing guts can do aside from using the crimson behelit to even touch femto. Skull knight couldn't even do shit to Griffith. So whatever happens it's going to be either guts sacrificing the party, some giant asspull to put them both in par, or he just eats it without putting up a fight
Griffith was totally gay for Guts, that was kinda obvious.
But Guts always saw Griffith as a friend and wanted Casca to come with him in his journey for whatever he wanted to do.
Berserk is the story of a fuccboi who was friendzoned.
Skull Knight didn't do shit to Griffith because he was part of the causality flow. He need not to be part of his masterplan.
Also i love the face SK and Zodd make here.
>tfw we haven't seen Skull Knight since
This was the last time
It's just another art change, remember what he looks like in his first appearance
Everyone has been looking a little off lately
It's a single chapter, isn't it? I don't think the un-retardation deus ex will finish by the end of it even assuming it won't be another flashback or pajeet chapter.
I hope Schierke and Farnese get permanently fucked up.
You know there's been no rape since Donovan, right?
t. clueless golden age reader right before Wyatt/the eclipse
If it hasn't shown its face for a while you know it's just preparing to go back at ramming speed.
>yfw that's the final draft
Japs don't have cults of personality like we have in the west, where authors become celebrities and never have time again to continue their books.
I mostly prefer it that way, but I admit I wish he made at least ONE fucking interview at least for the release of the new anime.
>even provided the links
t-thanks anon, I don't deserve such effort. The interview in the crunchyroll links I'd already read before but I thought it was older for some reason.
Someone should throw that editor off a cliff.
Probably because he never leaves home, playing the new idolmaster.
Talking more seriously, maybe it's because he just doesn't like to be in the media, also there are not many photos of masashi kishimoto or eichiro oda, not even akira toriyama, from my point of view the photos of the author aren't within the culture of mangaka , But also it's necessary to agree that miura exaggerates too much with that of maintaining a low profile.
I swear, if it's true, I'll kill Miura, then I'll kill you.
Torishima: From an editorial standpoint, you could say that Mori-sensei was the kind of person who was born to write I-Novels, like Dazai Osamu. Those kinds of people are very magnetic in their teens. I bet he seemed awesome to you, didn’t he?
Miura: He did. It actually made it hard to be normal friends with him. He was so awesome that if I didn’t stay away from him, he would dwarf me. I didn’t like my options, so I fought back the only way I could, which was to keep working on manga.
Torishima: So you tried to compete with him in manga skill. And he was so awesome that you clenched your teeth and stood by his side despite it all.
Miura: He was awesome, and it was difficult for me.
Torishima: Sounds like Guts and Griffith.
Miura: That was actually the inspiration. But sometimes I would be Guts, and sometimes I would be Griffith. It’s probably something that happens a lot in guys’ relationships.
>What's more, around the time when the Eclipse happened, the comic's popularity among readers dropped drastically (laughs). There was a lot of angry readers saying "What did you just do?!" after getting to like the characters
kek. How come they didn't see that coming though?
Miura: Personally, I write for “someone who is like me.” I don’t think my manga can be appreciated by anyone beyond those people who share my sensibilities. I want to write for the people who are like who I was during high school.
Torishima: Also, you don’t need to do backgrounds.
Miura: I feel that way sometimes, too (laugh).
Miura: I have to agree. I’ll start making an effort, beginning with my current manuscript. I’ve been making manga all this time without ever changing my style. I think I’m beginning to outgrow it.
>I made my manga pals from high school into mercenaries, as "a group of men acting with a certain goal in mind". They were doing great and I was happy for them, but this story arc was made to explain Guts' motivation for revenge, so I was like "I made this many great characters and now they're all gonna die!" (laughs).
Dude has issues.
Guts is 6'8"? I know he's a big guy (for me) but he doesn't seem to be THAT much taller than everyone else. He's definitely not a foot taller than Griffith.
The guidebook interview makes Miura look like an adorable ojiisan to me.
Since the beginning he took inspiration from disney and some fairy tales; he always liked shoujo manga and he said he couldn't stomach the story without something more light and cute like Puck.
I wonder what drawing the eclipse felt like to him.
In a past interview he did say that he considers Berserk to be a shoujo manga. His explanation was that in shoujo manga emotion leads to logic whereas the opposite is true for shounen manga.
>I wonder what drawing the eclipse felt like to him.
I mean, its clear he's not shy about liking boobs. 6+ pages of Caska fanservice helped him
the question is, was the friend Caska is based off weirded out or what
>editor received an envelope with Berserk's end inside
>editor opens the letter so that the fans can at least know how the saga would have finished
>the letter is empty
Anyone know what ethnicity guts would be?
Casca is clearly Sicilian or from some dark southern European part.
Griffith is from northern Europe
What about Guts? he is way taller than most southern Europeans. But has brown/black hair and brown eyes. I
Sometimes he looks a bit tan too but other times pretty white.
I thought he could be serbian or some other south slav.
More stuff from the guide book
>with some DEX
Guts is broken as far as humans go, remember he's insanely strong and skilled.
Look on the bright side. Did you ever had all of your friends slaughtered by monsters because of your previously best friend's betrayal? No? See, you are better off than Guts.
This why CHA is a dump stat people, learn to optimise your builds.
The original vol 1 cover is so fucking cool with how the top displays a badass pose with heavy contrast created by his cape and the bottom background. Why did they decide to change it? The watermark is fucking shitty and a calm, ugly looking Guts doesn't fit berserk at all.
Berserk has a consistent god tier artsyle.
But even the greatest artists makes mistakes.
What are some of the WORST panels in Berserk, where things like scale, anatomy or perspective is way off?
Hard mode: No digital drawings
that makes a bit more sense since that would make Guts, Griffith, and Casca around 21-22 during the eclipse and I'm guessing the ages for Judo, Carcus, and Pippin are how old they where when they died and Rickert would off been around 16-17
Deviantart didn't even spare Berserk, here's Femto Shadow the Hedgehog
It doesn't really make much sense to me desu, I don't think they put much thought into it because Guts is 15 when he joined the BotH then there's a 3-year time skip then I don't know how much more time passes between then and when he leaves for a year
Are you guys ready for spoilers in a few days? Are you ready to experience everything all over again but from Casca's POV?
>experience everything all over again but from Casca's POV
Farnese will probably kill herself
I don't think her watching Guts hack off his own arm with a blunt sword stub is going to help relieve this particular issue.
>Posted by Guts' new VA
>Guts' new VA
No. NO. NOOOOOO.
Meh. I'm not gonna pick Berserk back up until that lazy faggot Miura gets off his ass and finishes it.
Why did you have to remind me about this?
>guts went from 6'3 to 6'1 to 6 fucking 8
What the actual hell
Farnese will meltdown, this is almost guaranteed. She'll probably start trying to burn Casca and Sheirke before the power of friendship kicks in and Farnese has a major character growth moment.
filter "Berserk", "Guts", "Eclipse" and "Casca" subjects and comments until it's out.If you want to be more thorough than you can also try filtering words like "spoil", "chapter" and "happening".
The best course, naturally, is to avoid the site the from now until you read it in or around the 24th, but depending on your use of this site you may struggle with that.
>What's really sad is that Diraison really wanted to voice Guts again. He was very disappointed that he wasn't called in to audition.
I 'm going to cry. God dammit all.
I was mainly talking about the ages of the other BotH members but concerning Guts yeah its still messy since he should of been 19 during the eclipse unless the months he spend after the 3 year time skip yet before him leaving for a year was enough to slightly put him at 20 (I doubt he was exactly 15 when he joined) and maybe more time has passed from the eclipse to the island then we've realized.
What is the special Berserk workout routine I keep hearing about? Tell me, wise master Donovan!
>Miura: I see… I wonder if it’s too late for me to change my attitude now.
>Torishima: You can do it.
>Miura: It’s true that I make the first chapter really dense, and I end up being unproductive as a result. Maybe I can slow down a little.
>Torishima: Also, you don’t need to do backgrounds.
>Miura: I feel that way sometimes, too (laugh).
>Torishima: You have enough artistic talent to wow your audience with just the close-up shots of your characters.
>Mfw I'm just the same age as my waifu Farnese and slightly taller
>"that's my Griffith"
that's an edit, you goof. do you think they also edited his mouth to smiling?
And to be honest, there are some parts I prefer from BotH. Namely this one and Guts getting up "just to talk shit"
Void is the brains
geddit?behind the operation, Griffith is the pretty faced promoter.
>Do you think Femto will betray the other members and "soar to ever greater heights"
>basically becoming the Idea of Evil itself?
that would make no sense if what the IoE said in ch83 is canon
Griffith never denied it
I thought she wasn't really raped until Femto put his dick inside, seeing Casca almost got penetrated by a shard dick before that, r-right ?
Farnese will probably get jealous and try to sabotage Cascas rescue. If you look at past issues you see her with an anxious face anytime her memory is mentioned. Her whole character development revolves around her moving her faith on to Guts and seeing Casca's memories of her and Guts together will push her character development to its peak.
Don't watch any of the anime, if you want to see swordfighting with good animation you wont. 97 anime abuses stillshots and speedlines, new series is all about very bad 3D, the movie trilogy skips too many scenes so it's just the barebones retelling. Only watch the anime when you're like "I need MORE Berserk".
He couldn't. But unfortunately for everyone involved, Guts was a dense harem protagonist.
He's also a major coward
I don't share that sentiment but if at least Ubik doesn't notice them and say something along the lines of "Ah, I see we have some unexpected guests" I'll bite my ear off
Manga or the 97 series
with Susumu Hirasawa's music (from the series, games and films) playing either wayand then maybe the films a bit later when you're craving a Berserk fix during a hiatus
Yeah, it's when he's in jail. The Godhand hallucination happens right after this sequence.
You know its gonna be a Griffith or Rickert chapter right, and we will follow whatever little story that is about for 8-9 chapters before hiatus for another year.
Never will we see caska unretarded.
