I think 35 has the worst face
Contrary to the 3DPD belief many magazines that run manga also feature articles about real life stuff.
Seinen magazines where its main content is erotic manga will deal with articles about gravure idols and shit, Young Animal is full of ecchi manga despite Berserk being its flagship title, it is a successful black sheep.
so I was playing this cool game called hollow knight and found this reference
his first line was
>I have a tendency to go berserk in battle
Alright, if I remember correctly from the guidebook, that mini Casca character will be their Eclipse guide.
I am not expecting any horror anymore, wonder how Miura will portray it. With super-deformed apostles and big-black "censored<3" sign over the rape?
The Korean scans look like someone rubbed fucking Vaseline on everything.
What's the point of the digital touch-ups? Or are these purely digital raws?
I made this shitty comparison from the spoilers we got yesterday, and I think they look better. Everything isn't all washed out, and you can actually see the cross-hatching in the backgrounds.
actually i don't really get this
The dream of Griffith was to have a country, as far as Guts knows.
What else is there?
(also taking into consideration that Griffith beat Gunishka or whatever his name was, he beat the biggest emperor beyond him. what else does he want)
I think Guts just knows that Griffith isn't the type of person to rest on his laurels, even if he ostensibly has what he wants. Griffith is called the "King of Longing", he's always striving for more dominion over pretty much everything, and Guts knows that.
as far as i get that, he(Griffith) is probably able to unite the nations of the world kinda like Gaiserick(or whatever his name is), while maintaining the balance of demonds and humans as in Falconia, then what?
Also, there is the theory that Griffith wants to sacrifice the people of Falconia. But why would he do that? I mean, he is pretty much as powerful as one gets, and i don't see Femto desperate for more power, nor any new high-level behelits, which would grant him that power
I just realized how Griffith looks like Lady Oscar
I doubt Griffith is going to sacrifice Falconia. The only way that would make sense is if he intends to conquer something that isn't even on the material plane.
If his aspirations extend beyond the "physical" world, who the fuck knows what his intention is.
I think what's more likely is that Griffith simply wants world domination and unification, not simply control over Midland, which is what he has now.
Because of what SK did during the battle with Ganishka the entire world is bordering on uninhabitability, since the astral planes are layering over physical reality. As a result, people are drawn to Falconia like moths to a flame since it's a safe haven in a world gone mad. If I had to make a bet on his next actions, it will be the destruction of other safe-havens around the world so that Falconia is the only beacon humanity has left, putting Griffith in charge of the the entire fate of mankind.
But honestly, who the fuck knows?
The Falconia sacrifice theory is fucking retarded because a) you can't sacrifice shit until you reach maximum despair, and b) the sacrificial subject has to mean everything to you. Neither of these conditions apply to Griffith now.
Falconia couldnt possibly house all of those people though
Why not just conquer other kingdoms? Its not like anyone is strong enough to beat him. Or if he still wanted to play up a "savior" angle he could pretend to save the world from monsters (like the Organization did in Claymore)
Falconia is a magical city that was raised from the ruins of the ancient King's long dead reign now infused with astral bullshittery from the World Tree, so I kind of assumed it would build itself in the same way it already has, becoming a medieval super-city.
I'm probably wrong though.
The maximum despair part is true, but Falconia is literally his dream brought into the material plane, a dream that killed all of his closest friends. Wouldn't something like that mean everything to him? It all depends on if the sacrifice has to be a person, or if it can be an idea/construction.
If that's the case, it seems like the only true condition that has to be met is that he has to reach max despair again, which doesn't seem likely. I don't even know if Griffith can feel human emotions without the Moon-Child affecting him.
It's not just dominion. In volume 10, Guts realizes that there are two sides to Griffith - a human with his own fragility and uncertainties and then a rare, one in a million person who can't be "normal" if his life depended on it. He will always rise higher and see more than others because this drive and daring is inherent to him. Countries, social order, religion - he never saw anything as immutable or impossible to change.
True, it's much more than simply desiring power over others, it's more the fact that Griffith literally cannot operate in any other capacity. He is the oil to humanity's waters.
>b) the sacrificial subject has to mean everything to you.
That isn't true tho, we have seen apostle sacrifice people that are disliked or unrelated to them, like the Egg and the world/the people near the tower and Rosine and her father that abused her.
He seemed pretty eager to get rid of his human emotions (no wonder, since they had caused his fall in the first place), so I think his affect is at least severely blunted now, which makes him much less susceptible to any sacrifices.
The Egg apostle sacrificed the world, which was both what he cared about the most and the source of his despair. Similarly, Rosine loved her father as any child does, but he was also the source of his torment.
The Egg of the Perfect world was unlike any other Apostle in that he was completely selfless.
He did care about those in the world that were downtrodden and forgotten, so upon sacrificing the "current world" and himself, he actually did give up something dear to him. In his eyes, he gave the lives of those he thought deserved better in exchange for betterment in the future.
I think he's the only Apostle so far who was technically able to sacrifice himself as well.
>which was both what he cared about the most
What? The Egg hated the world and everyone in it.
>Rosine loved her father as any child does
No she fucking didn't he abused her and her mother daily since she was born and was the reason she left to begin with and the reason her behelit activated.
Also I forgot to mention that Void sacrificed an entire fucking kingdom, are you going to claim that every single fucker in Midland was near and dear to him? There has to be sometimes some relation to the apostle but to say that the one sacrificed has to be someone whose absence would mean something to the apostle or someone the apostle loves/cares for is just factually wrong. Even if it is what most sacrifices are that doesn't mean the sacrifice has to have those qualities.
>The Egg hated the world and everyone in it.
Untrue. He despaired from the state of it, but he wanted to see it improve and be reborn into something better.
As for Rosine, remember the last scene in the Lost Children arc? Deep down, she wanted a normal family like anyone else, with her parents beside her.
>>Untrue. He despaired from the state of it, but he wanted to see it improve and be reborn into something better.
Even in this assumption you can clearly see that the Egg himself had no personal relationship with the entirity of the fucking world. If the Egg can sacrifice the world or even just the people around the Tower of Conviction, people unknown to him, then that proves that any apostle can sacrifice anyone, that is all I am saying.
It doesn't have to be your lover or your family or your friends or whatever.
>Miura and Umino collaborate on a new manga, with the former doing the story while the latter does the artwork
it's about the dark side of the idol industry
>It doesn't have to be your lover or your family or your friends or whatever.
Yes, this is true, all the other anon was saying is that it still has to be of great importance to the guy doing the sacrificing, which places Falconia within the realms of "sacrificable" as far as I'm concerned.
I don't think it'll happen, but I think it's possible.
Nobody said that the sacrifice has to be a person, only that the one doing the sacrificing must care about it very deeply ("part of your very soul" and all that). Current Griffith, however, doesn't seem to be capable of deep human feelings.
Griffith feels like more of a shell than Casca is, he's lost all the warmth he once had as a human. We don't really feel connected to him as a character when the focus shifts to the new Hawks, so the chapters are always from the viewpoint of characters like Sonia or Rickert.
Why do people let it fly that the mangaka takes off a year or so and doing nothing?
>inb4 b-but MUH HEALTH
LITERALLY (and i mean it) every other profession has to deliver. I can understand if you're sick, so you have to take a break but what mangaka are doing is a fucking joke.
Just the nature of females and tendencies as much as boys have their own. I think Casca is the best example and how she can be with Guts sometimes. Like when she tried attacking Guts. Miura said that the series is mainly based on emotions so I think he had trouble understanding girls in that sense.
Casca was useless before the retardation and she will be just as useless after she gets fixed.
Fuck me. Why is it so goddamn bittersweet. ;_;
I think Berserk is pretty decent at female characters. I'd maybe say early Caska seemed a bit "off" but generally its fine
how female suffering is portrayed is another conversation lol
>Skull Knight brings up Casca getting healed, literally first time its mentioned in the story at that point
>Miura then drags us on a boat for over a decade
If you think she won't get healed and feel better, you're deluded. I doubt Miura would pull something so fucking cunty as to have her healing lead nowhere. And what the hell else would the story be after that? Guts, once again, going after Griffith?
>Bringing /pol/memes into Berserk
>Casca, Griffith killed all of our friends, caused great suffering to many people and is now a demon leading demonic armies. Also he raped you and caused our child to become a demon baby who protected us but you sort of miscarried at the same time.
>"I love Griffith I will be with him."
If Miura does this I'll screech.
>Cascas memories of the eclipse get deleted and she wants to go back to Griffith
>Memories of the Eclipse
This is good though. Delete those, and she'll still have fallen for Guts. She sees Griffith as a friend.. but then..
Guts tells her whats happened. Everyone else chimes in on their side of the story. And fucken Silat and Rickert bust in, telling their shit too so Casca realises that Griffith is now no longer the man she once loved and promises to avenge the REAL BAND OF THE HAWK
True, and shitty writing is definitely something not he's known for. Maybe dragged out, but never actually bad.
Infact, is there a part of Berserk that is objectively bad? Like "Wow, this is really not Miura at all."
But remember, right before the eclipse, the ruined Griffith tried to have sex with her.
Afterwards, she immediately went outside and told Guts she had to stay with Griffith, and that he should leave again by himself.
Oh yeah, good point.
desu I don't even want to imagine what fucking torture he had to endure for one year. I mean, we are told some of it but jesus, that little shit absolutely ruined Griffith completely.
>Guts tells her whats happened.
He didn't even tell Rickert till he was forced to. He wouldn't say shit if she doesn't remember and he shouldn't it would be cruel beyond measure.
Wasn't that more because Guts bottled everything up inside him as a result of the dark inner beast? He wanted to get revenge all by himself and didn't care about Rickert. It wasn't that he wanted to protect Rickert from the truth but to me it comes off as Guts just wanting Griffith all for himself, with nobody slowing him down.
That was more of pity, though. Casaca saw how far Griffith had fell. Griffith ran away after that because he saw that neither saw him as Griffith the leader, but Griffith the burden
I love papa Guts
I always found it so bizarre there were so many incidents where these guys just phase out of existence for years and never really give a reason why, even if they do end up coming back. Is there some unwritten rule that mangaka have to be stupidly elusive?
>LITERALLY (and i mean it) every other profession has to deliver
So you'd rather they churn out drivel/ The mangaka is the one who creates the series and their schedules are usually pretty fucking brutal, unlike a 40 hour work week.
If an author gets writer's block, he doesn't write nonsense until it's gone and publishes the nonsense. They can have contracts or whatever, but if they aren't in a good spot to create, it's going to be noticable.
Besides, you don't even pay for your fucking manga and don't pretend that you do. You have no grounds to complain.
>The mangaka is the one who creates the series and their schedules are usually pretty fucking brutal, unlike a 40 hour work week.
Correction, you are talking about mangaka with weekly releases, like those you have a contract with Jump. Those fuckers work like dogs to the point that many of them nosedive after a while just to cope, but Miura isn't one of them.
A lot of them spend the majority of their lives working to the bone on a single piece. When they finally reach the point where their status and financial situation allows them to request something like a break or a hiatus, it doesn't take much for it to finally set in that the way they've been living is akin to hell.
Once that's happened I imagine it's really hard for them to force themselves back into that sort of way of living when they know they can now work at a slower pace (or admittedly, not work at all).
And they also can't really speak out about it because publicly complaining about your work life is a taboo in Japan.
It goes without saying that if they aren't under contract they can do what the fuck they want. that's being your own boss and it is such common sense/knowledge it shouldn't even have to be mentioned.
I see that i have severely overestimated the intelligence of people in this thread.
But the mangaka in question from the OP was Miura who is under no contract for weekly releases so your whole point is mute when it comes to that post and this thread in general
Maybe you are overestimating your own intelligence.
>your whole point is mute
>overestimating your own intelligence
I think it was a mix of him wanting to protect the others from what he felt, the feeling nobody would ever be able to imagine it (see his dialogue with Gotoh) and him being in solo mode to channel the FORCES
He probably thought about Rickert a bit, at least when he was making preparations. REVENGE Guts wasn't that obsessed, that's the main difference between him and Griffith. Guts can still care.
Will we get ever another [FORCES] moment like that? I think Miura will die before that.
Berserk armor makes Guts go auto-slaughter mode so it doesn't count.
You don't have to unconditionally love something for it to count as a sacrifice. We've seen several examples of apostles sacrificing loved ones after they were betrayed by them (The Count and his Wife, the Emperor and his son).
And I'm not sure it'll be so much a sacrifice as a straight up slaughter. We still don't know what part the other members of the Godhand are playing in this after all.
she also doomed them to eternal hell and probably joined them there
>"the fate of all who consort with demonkind"
>so all the apostles and their sacrifices
>Guts and Casca
>those who died in the tower
>possibly those who go to Falconia too, the fuck was up with that seance
>and all the Hawks in the eclipse
shit's pretty fucked in the afterlife in Berserk. Though with all the magic shit there's a pretty good chance heaven exists as well
The things that killed them were made from the souls of all those who got tortured/died in the camps, angry and afraid. Reason the fucking things got so big was because more people were getting killed and being drawn into the mass.
It's essentially what the vortex of souls we saw in the Black Swordsman arc was made of.
>The things that killed them were made from the souls of all those who got tortured/died in the camps, angry and afraid. Reason the fucking things got so big was because more people were getting killed and being drawn into the mass.
I don't remember that
well I don't remember much of the Conviction arc other than birds people, wheels and arabs
The R+V autor said somethig like "an artist has a 10 years period on wich they are at their creative peak" or some shit like that on the final volumes.
That guy finished his work and disappeared from the face of earth.
>The Band of the Hawk and their brutal deaths are a metaphor for how it all looked so bright for him in art schoold, and he had a great time, and then came the hell of being a full time Mangaka.
>Casca is a metaphor for how his first love, manga and wanting to draw them, was ruined and damaged. A tarnished dream.
>Griffith represents the hold his dream still has over him, and how despite having everything he wanted, he it cost him a normal life.
>Guts journey after the Eclipse represents his journey towards becoming successful, and the wounds he took.
>Schierke and his new friends represent how Idolmaster and the breaks he takes are healing him, and allowing him to love being a Mangaka again.
>The quest to heal Casca is Miura trying to reignite his love of manga and drawing.
>Whenever he wasn't eating or sleeping, I would remove some skin or muscle.
Now imagine a whole year of that. That Griffith was still relatively sane and willing to go on after all this is some extraordinary mental strength. If not for the cut tendons, he would have bounced back, too.
As the IoE puts it, there was only so much he could take.
He's a visionary. Concepts like social equality, meritocracy etc. are pretty much unheard of in the Berserk world, yet it came naturally to him. For better or worse, he's always dared to imagine the world as it could be instead of settling for what is.
But motherfucker is too resistant to despair and other shit, how can he use becchi?
Griffith never HAD that, he was just a possessive dick obsessed with muh kingdom, whatever personality he had was given to him when he met his friends, but then he decided to fuck them over.
And of course, here's Griffith's own admission that muh Guts >>>> muh kingdom.
Yeah, why do you think he raped Casca while looking at him straight in the eye? Why do you think he was thinking of him even while penetrating Charlotte's tight cunt? He's gay as fuck for Guts
and I really can't blame him
>Marc Diraison will never voice Guts again
>Kevin T. Collins will never voice Griffith again
What's even the fucking point in dubbing it.
What's the main difference between the original anime and the manga's golden ages? I want to recommend a friend berserk but I don't want him to know that Griffith is the bad guy and was considering starting him off in episode 2, but I'm not sure if that's a good idea or not.
>Play the new game
>It's surprisingly fun
A few spelling errors and some map repetition but overall it's fun. Shame it skips the Lost Children part, as well as many extra apostles or apostle-spawns like Mozgus crew. We only get flatface. Also no playable skull knight.
Judeau is playable though.
>Shame it skips the Lost Children part, as well as many extra apostles or apostle-spawns like Mozgus crew. We only get flatface. Also no playable skull knight.
God fucking dammit. I just reached black swordsman arc too.
Well it's still very fun. And desu the berserker armour is fucking nuts. You turn into fucking Devil May Cry mixed with Berserk. Grunbeld didn't stand a fucking remote chance.
You know what would be funny in hindsight? If Guts turned back on that duel was all "hahaha got you good you dumb fuck, I'm here to stay" and goes on about how he punk'ed Griffith.
Doubt it. The whole band knew that Griffith was very lenient and weirdly self-sacrificing towards Guts and the only thing Griffith himself seemed to care about was keeping him.
It's even more broken when you unlock it's berserk form permanently after 100 levels of the Endless Eclipse. That last fight was a bitch but god damn was it worth it.
Too bad every character feels like shit in comparison now
I just noticed that Casca's broken boob is the one Femto touched
I love all the Guts/Caska healing imagery.
Just reread the Sea God arc. It's not that bad contrary to what people say about it. It's sorta like a Lovecraftian and fantasy mixup in Berserk form. Definitely a huge drag when you read it upon each release but as a marathon it's great. Berserk might be lighter in tone and I doubt anything will come close to Lost Children arc but the switch in genre is still all-around entertaining. Miura can go anywhere with the new Fantasia developments and if he stuck with the black swordsman tone, it would feel repetitive so this change was inevitable.
>new patch this friday
>ugs, cgs and other heavy weaponry gets buffed
>a few days before dlc to go full Guts
I bet Casca will go from potato to constantly depressed and suicidal.
>>ugs, cgs and other heavy weaponry gets buffed
>>a few days before dlc to go full Guts
n-nani? I haven't played since the 1st dlc release
The first movie looks like ass, way worse than the other 2 so it will only turn him off. Tell him to put on his big boy pants and read the fucking manga and if he doesn't want then why does it even matter?
It'll go like this scene
Nope, Bastard didn't influence Berserk.
Also, Bastard started one year before Berserk, and was a classic Fantasy, at the time.
The strange Monsters, the Angels, and the fucking mess that is the Story, came much, MUCH later.
The major inspiration of Miura was Guin Saga.
>Also I forgot to mention that Void sacrificed an entire fucking kingdom, are you going to claim that every single fucker in Midland was near and dear to him?
Void never sacrificed anything you idiot.
You can't sacrifice something you don't deeply care about.
>Void never sacrificed anything you idiot.
Yes he fucking did. Read the manga newfag.
>I was only pretending to be retarded
That's actually correct.
Void and Griffith did sacrifice their followers to become a God Hand member.
Not a kingdom.
Also, you'll noticed that Charlotte says '5 angels' meaning that this sacrifice happened after Void had become a God Hand member. But Casca saying 'I thought it were only 4 angels' is equally as important for different reasons.
You're right, it just so happened that every citizen of said kingdom one day vanished 1000 years ago on the date of an eclipse and Void's chronological ascension to the Godhand and their corpses happen to have the brand on them.
It also happens that SK (aka Gaiseric the former king of said kingdom) has a personal beef with Void.
On the forehead? Like Corkus's brand?
The brand goes everywhere randomly. How come every single mummified corpse have the brand of their forehead? Guts had it on his neck. Casca on her breast, etc. But when Void 'sacrificed' it was all in on the forehead? That's too coincidental, don't you think?
>You're right, it just so happened that every citizen of said kingdom one day vanished 1000 years ago
lol said where?
Did you miss the part where Angels came down from the heaven to 'destroy Gaiserick's Empire'?
All you've seen is a pile of bodies, not the entire kingdom being sacrificed.
>On the forehead? Like Corkus's brand?
So close, yet so far. Like Gut's brand? Like Casca's brand?
One person on the forehead is coincidence. An entire collection is a pattern.
>hey man, it doesn't matter if it's 4 or 5 maybe it was 3!
Or maybe there were no angels, maybe the number was zero!
Ah, that would imply that Gaiseric is an Apostle. Or that Gaiseric is Void. But that would be incorrect. Skull Knight is not associated with the God Hand.
Half of /a/ are such gullible dumbasses who can't form their own opinion. Most will follow and parrot what others say and not recognize a shitpost.
I assumed he was a rogue apostle at first (because what else), that's why I didn't understand why he needed the Berserker armor. But now that I think about it more than not at all it really doesn't make sense.
Gaiseric was probably the sacrifice and Void was the one who rose in power because of it.
Your entire fucking point is based on the fact that the brands aren't placed randomly, despite all evidence to the contrary? When there is only one other mass branding to go off of making it just as likely that mass brandings typically all brand their victims in the same spot and Griffiths was an exception or a detail Miura changed to give variety to the visuals of the scene?
Tell me, how do I reach this level of autism? This is beyond shipping straight characters as gay and believing it's factual.
SK can't be an apostle because of the simple fact that Guts brand doesn't react to him and that it's also inferred that the Berserk armor drained him dead.
He has to learn some spooky magic if he wants to follow skully's path. Maybe that is what will save him, his RPG party with various skills will lighten his burden and allow him to stay mostly human.
>Your entire fucking point is based on the fact that the brands aren't placed randomly, despite all evidence to the contrary?
What evidence? When a group of people are sacrificed, the brand goes everywhere randomly as seen during the Eclipse. And yet these corpse all have the brand on the forehead, and all you can do is laugh without noticing that perhaps that isn't a coincidence but intentional.
>Miura changed to give variety to the visuals of the scene?
Or maybe you don't give enough Miura credit.
It's funny how you have to go ''oh maybe Miura just wanted to be stylistically different and inconsistent for whatever reason'' and stopped thinking entirely.
>give variety to the visuals of the scene?
This is hilarious.
Oh? And what proof do you have that Skull Knight was ever branded?
Maybe Miura is setting up something to make it possible to kill all members of the godhand. They aren't gods after all, and if Skully tried attacking Void during the eclipse it means that they can be killed.
Guts will need another power up but he's in a fairy tale land now, no way there isn't some Excalibur sword or elvish blade or whatever out there.
>mfw it will end how it started
>just like bleach

>Guts will need another power up but he's in a fairy tale land now, no way there isn't some Excalibur sword or elvish blade or whatever out there.
Do you have so little faith in Guts? Don't you think that the Berserk armor is enough of a powerup for Guts to destroy the God Hand?
Also, are you suggesting that Guts use another sword other than the DragonSlayer?
Guts getting another sword and leaving the iconic Dragonslayer behind (especially "now" that it's been given magic powers) would be the most retarded thing Miura could do.
>Don't you think that the Berserk armor is enough of a powerup for Guts to destroy the God Hand?
Not him but no fucking way. I don't believe that even Skull Knight (a more powerful character) with an asspull sword could beat them all.
I read a pretty good theory from here that it's setting up the moonlight child to be the key to making Femto mortal because of his connection to him before the rebirth. Then it's a choice already made for Guts to sacrifice his child in order to have a third final duel with Griffith at the finale's climax. This is amidst Griffith's darkest days of his reign and his discontent at ruling the mortal plane and he plans to gain power beyond Godhand by betraying them.
It wraps things up nicely and puts all the antagonists down all in one plot point.
Ah ye of so little faith.
The fact that you think it's impossible is what will make Gut's victory even the more sweeter. You do read a manga where Guts wins by the skin of his teeth, and yet you want him to gain powerups to make it easier for him.
No no no. Guts has to suffer and skim death by the hair to kill the God Hand.
>with an asspull sword could beat them all.
It's not really an asspull sword. The only thing it does is cut and not be stopped. Though ironically, it can be stopped by time warping. I guess Skull Knight just has the worst luck.
Void stopped his sword through dimensional warping, so perhaps that sword was created to kill him. I'm not sure how the sword couldn't beat them, it's more that Skull Knight needs to just hit them.
I don't believe that current Guts can kill everyone in the godhand. They wouldn't appear alone, so Guts would have to fight against all of them at the same time.
About the sword, it could be some elvish bullshit coating in the dragonslayer then.
That would be a bit more realistic, but what about the rest of the godhand? Having Griffith killing them or they just escaping unharmed would be lame.
>I don't believe that current Guts can kill everyone in the godhand.
So little faith indeed.
>They wouldn't appear alone
Maybe, maybe not. You're assuming he fight them all at once, and in that case, I actually agree with you that it would be impossible. If Guts were to find them one at a time, do you think he could? Guts has been fighting Apostles one at a time the entire manga. I don't see how that would change.
>About the sword, it could be some elvish bullshit coating in the dragonslayer then.
And what would that do? Cut more? Did you forget that the DragonSlayer is 'specificalized' from cutting Astral beings for so long? Elf magic can't add more than what it already has. Guts even says so when he cut Slan. He knows he can do it if the sword reaches. The question is whether Guts can even do it. No 'additions' are needed, just Guts and his willpower.
>That would be a bit more realistic, but what about the rest of the godhand? Having Griffith killing them or they just escaping unharmed would be lame.
It would work like this.
>Griffith holding a demonic sacrificial event with Godhand so confident in their next empowering agenda
>at the last minute, Griffith seizes all the power and weakens the Godhand
>Skull Knight, who indirectly orchestrated this, capitalizes on this and kills Void
>Griffith makes a mistake because events outside his tale have caused him to falter
>Guts faces him on even ground
Griffith's main weakness is the thing that made him strong would be his ambition that will crumble before him.
Idolmaster is literally a fucking plague upon Berserk fans. The schmuck is too busy playing cutsey moeshit to actually work.
Yeah no Miura do please spend another 20 years creating 1 page a month while playing that garbage.
>Of the thousands of comrades and the tens of thousands of enemies...you're the only one...who ever made me forget my dream.
>Have I ever before wielded a sword so heavy?
post pages that makes you chill
The simple ones like this are some of the best honestly
He probably did care about the kingdom, in a greedy scumbag way. It's like griffith. He didn't love wholly every member of the hawk but they were close to him and key in his ambition.
It feels really forced and trite at this point.
>le idolmaster memes
>muh grimdark tragedy
>>>>>>griffith did nothing wrong
The golden age was more than a decade ago. Let it go guys.
Yeah, which sort of changed around the hill of swords fight, which was basically nu-griffith trying to convince himself that he didn't care about guts or caska anymore. At this point griffith is mostly lying to himself about his feelings for guts
no no NO FIX IT BETTER FIX IT NOW REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Why am I such a failure compared to guts
You still have time anon, never stop believing in yourself.
If it would make me like guts I might do it....
Btw guys. Since guts is losing sight. How will this have effect on him? As of now he still seems to be able to fight well but Sasuke had the same problem and was eventually forced to take new eyes to get his eye sight back to normal. What will happen to guts his eyes?
Seems like they're going to the mountain of pic related. What do they know about the Eclipse exactly ?
I'd say Shierke knows most of it by this point but i doubt she's ever sit with Guts to talk about it.

Sort of reminds me of Alexander the Great. He conquered the entirety of the "civilised" world (which, back then was Egypt, Greece, Anatolia, Mesopotamia and Persia) and when he had no more civilisations to conquer he fell into deep depression and drunk himself to his grave.
Alexander was basically Guts and Griffith put together, and the epitome of Greek tragedy (something that features heavily in Berserk). His ambition made him the most powerful emperor in the world at that point but he only really felt alive when he was on the battlefield. When there was no more land to conquer, and no more battles to be had, he lost his purpose in life.
He was even somewhat similar to Griffith in his rather androgynous appearance, pic related.
