READ
>>
>>157705283
Skully used to own it and is giving it to Guts for graduating demon slaying by killing Slan's avatar. Berserk doesn't have greeting cards, so she just chiseled it in.
>>
>>157705283
It is to ward off the demons attracted to Guts' brand from what I remember.
>>
>>157705283
It was a ward to protect him from the mark on his neck. Same kind of deal as what was preventing his neck from being a blood volcano up until Slan undid it, though this one is stronger.

Fuck off with ya, cunt. I'm not reading some moon rune right to left comic.

>>
>>157705412
The ward also helps prevent him from being possessed, though that's kindof a moot point while wearing the armour, since he's basically being possessed by his inner demons anyway.
>>
>>157705412
>>157705429

But if the armour heals itself why doesn't it remove the rune?

Well, it's not our fault that Anime Suit and Tie people put milking the Niche merchandise market above expanding the horizons of anime back to what they were in the late 80s heyday
I think another adaption of Berserk will happen one day. If the new Castlevania show does well then Japan may see that and wake up to realize it's better to put more budget into genre anime again like fantasy and sci fi, without gimmicks like high school or trapped in a video game or whatthefuckever
Bringing back the old OVA market via Netflix type deals. It could happen.

Would everyone prefer a longer ongoing series like Naruto or OP filled with filler and occasional arcs with garbage art like Pain arc in Naruto or all arcs in One Piece?

I'm pretty sure the businesses behind the anime know that it won't sell well enough to warrant a high budget thanks to not being child friendly.

holy shit this episode was the most unfinished one yet

it was so bad they forgot to change the fps from 60 for several scenes
the only thing remotely okay in this episode was probably the transformation segment

and what was up with the next episode preview?
im almost certain they were so rushed they didnt have any footage for the next episode

this trainwreck just keeps on giving

Is this the worst episode in terms of animation so far?

>>
>>157706543
You're right about Berserk not being kid friendly, but I think the show does have potential to be a hit anime in spite of that. Attack on Titan was absurdly successful in spite of its violence and gore, and the story/characters for that show aren't even good compared to Berserk. The reason why AoT's anime is great has much to do with its incredible animation. I think Berserk has potential if it had a decent budget and an experienced studio behind it.
>>
>>157702790
They somehow managed to take what should be an easy 10/10 episode because of the material and butcher it
>>
>>157709718

This should have been hype as fuck even with the usual shitty animation, but somehow they made the animation far worse to the point that it even killed the hype.

You mean Gaiseric, King Gaiseric viewed himself as the Skeleton Knight. When he donned the Berserker armour, he eventually let it overpower him, losing his humanity and becoming the very thing he viewed himself as.

The actual fight sucked, Grunbeld's motions seemed too slow for something that would knock a big guy like Guts flying
>>
Christ that sequence where Zodd transformed and blocked Skull Knight from helping Guts was probably the worst animated thing i've seen from this shitty series, and that's saying a lot.

The audio mixing was also completely fucked. Half of the time there was no sound effect at all when Gut's sword was blocked by Grunbeldt.

>>157711302

No it changes to a dog face, because Guts' inner beast is a pupper, just like Skull Knights is a skelly, Zodd's is a winged cat, Griffith's is a rapebird, etc.

The song "Ash Crow" is perhaps a reference to the myth of the Phoenix, which applies both to Guts and Griffith in different ways. They both face absolute despair and unavoidable fate, and are reborn: Griffith is reborn as a monster disguised as the hero he could have been, while Guts seeks after redemption despite the entire world seeing him as a psychopathic killer. Remember the Band of the Hawk was also called the White Phoenix Knights.

I think the horse is part of him, but not like the Neo Hawk demon lancers.

Also, after seeing what he did in the Eclipse and Qliphoth this ep was a massive disappointment. I can only hope that they're saving up for the visual equivalent of looping Dragon Slayer for 23 minutes next week.

Agreed.

Honestly, anybody who is 'hating' on it right now is just doing so for no other reason than 'hurrr durrr muh cgi'.

The story is still there and the animation really isn't too bad and is getting better every week.

I'll be waiting for all of you to apologize after next weeks episode.

I would honestly prefer if they had colored manga panels instead of the shit pile of a show they've produced. The 90's anime used image stills for certain scenes and it was completely fine. Seeing Berserk get this kind of half-assed anime is so aggravating.

Maybe Guts shouldn't enter a fight without armor then, it's not Grunbeld's fault Guts was going easy on him

Production value-wise, it's kinda tragic to see Berserk air in the same season as Bahamuth.

Maybe the quality of the adaption will put Miura in a foul enough mood to go back to the darker tone of earlier Berserk. Imagine all the time he spent on the 2 seasons, when he could have drawn more chapters.

>>157725765
>Like, I know it sold well, but...how? Why? Who wanted more of this?
It is one of the most famous seinen franchises in the history of anime and manga, and it finally had another anime adaptation, specifically for post-Eclipse material.

It was bound to sell and gain appeal off brand alone.

Had they just done normal 2D animation, it probably would've sold tremendously.

This whole anime is shitty CG + "2D" colored pages from the manga.

I wouldn't go as far as to say the 90's anime was better than the manga will ever be, but it really was a solid AF series that adapted the Golden Age arc very well, told its story very powerfully, and really captured Berserk's appeal, style and atmosphere extremely well through a combination of Hirasawa's amazing music (to this day, nobody else's music is acceptable for Berserk), good storytelling/directing/pacing, and art that was pleasant even if it wan't high budget, with a great color scheme and tasteful direction and stylistic choices. I do actually prefer a few things about the 97 series' telling of the Golden Age arc versus the manga's; I honestly like that it dropped Wyald, for one, as I always felt like his character and the chapters he took up threw off or stalled the pacing at that point in the story and his character honestly feels like a tacked on bad guy. The story just flowed better without him and everything surrounding him. I also liked that the 97 series included a few more of the Hawks battles earlier on than the manga did, as I felt like it helped flesh things out earlier on in the story, alternatively.

The animation in this is awful and has remained varying degrees of awful throughout the series.
It's like low FPS, amateur SFM porn but somehow worse.

What else do you expect when Hirasawa's work is used?
Only good music in this anime and it has to costar with shitty hectic violin music that's been with us since the start.

Hirasawa's new and original tracks and the fact that it is based on Berserk are the only good parts of this shitty anime.

Bad models, shit facial expressions, shit animations when talking, shit animation for the action, poor choice of shots for basically everything but the one detailed 2D shot that caps off the episode, abysmal camera direction, loads of cut content, etc.

I'm just going by the skin tone of the volume art, and somewhat by the anime. I always noticed that Guts was a bit paler after the Golden age probably due to lack of sleep and food. But the skin color is easy to change since it's on its own layer so I'll change it if you really think he needs to be more tan.

Well, no shit. I really don't want to defend this garbage, but it's completely unfair to compare video game and anime cgi. They run on entirely different standards, budgets, and production schedules. You could at least use other cgi anime as an example, but without digging into movies it's honestly not easy to find something that is consistently better. Which before you take it the wrong way isn't praise for this adaptation, but proof of how awful tv cgi anime in general is. It's not like you actually need to compare it to anything to prove how shit it is anyway.

That's not good. Anime is not manga. You can't just animate panel by panel because there are obviously things happening between panels.

>>157747176
It doesn't. There are awkward cuts (becaus they don't know what to do between panels) and still frames that are literally just colored pages from the manga. Look at this:

>>157718945

Not really. You don't need to animate every goddamn scene this way, only a few key ones. And my main point was that I don't dislike CGI, I dislike a sloppy job. Poorly animated traditional anime is just as bad.
