If Berserk ends up having the twist I think it will, I will never forget it was a page from fucking Shokugeki no Souma that tipped me off
Passage of Dreams is a fuckton of manga we've been reading. During Megumi and Souma vs Shinomiya, Megumi thinks about how her life is like a dream and how she doesn't want the dream to end.
Her hands starts trembling, Souma slaps them to make them stop.
We don't know. All the fighting SK has done was the behelit sword which doesn't really even count, and that friendly tussle with Zodd. He could be stronk as fuck, or just something Guts tier.
Nigga Femto looks like absolute fucking shit.
In fact he's the prime example of using the behelit to make yourself look less attractive than you did before.
I would literally rather make sweet love to crippled Griffith, complete with prolonged eye contact and cuddling, than put my dick anywhere near Femto for 30 seconds.
In all my time of reading and re-reading Berserk, I never noticed that Void's eyes were sewn shut. If the Godhand resemble their human form before they ascended, Void seems to have had a pretty bad fate before he rose to be a godhand.
Huh? Crippled Griffith didn't rape anybody.
Is it even possible to fuck Femto? Would your dick simply bounce off his butthole? What if he's really aroused, do his gravity bending powers stop working?
In that case, would it be possible to quickly stab him through the heart while you're fucking him since he has to keep that power down to let your dick go into him?
I think I've finally figured out Griffith's weak spot and the way he's going to die.
Griffith didn't do this for pleasure, he did it to hurt Guts for betraying him by not splitting his boicunt open every night.
If a gay man rapes a woman solely to hurt another man, he's still gay.
Qts being forced to genuinely enjoy sex against their will is a patrician tier fetish.
Reminder that if you like tomboys you are, for all intents and purposes, a homosexual.
A sight to be sure... Griffith is drawn to men of power.He did not search for his own kingdom, just for a true alpha man to take him and make him his own. That's why he wanted Guts. Had Guts stayed, Griffith would've become like Princess Charlotte to Guts, his wife, finally satisfied with the sheer alphaness radiating from Guts.
>ywn be the alpha Chad whose cock and seed Griffith craves
>ywn come home from a hard day's fighting to have Griffith throw himself at you, naked except for a short tunic that barely covers his shapely rear, his face alight with happiness and adoration
>ywn lift his tunic up and spread his plush cheeks to reveal his boy cunt, pink and puffy from being impaled on your monster cock every night
>ywn hear his whorish whimper as you push your raging flesh sword inside him, feeling his hot back passage clench around you
>ywn push him against the wall and lift his leg up to invade his body deeper as he moans with pleasure on every thrust
>ywn pump so much of your manly seed into him that his slim belly bulges a little, as if he's pregnant with your child
>ywn stroke his little boy clit to orgasm and hear him scream your name in ecstasy at being used as a vessel for your seed, your fingers covered in his cum
>ywn give him a kiss and tell him you're hungry
>ywn tease him by making him smell your fingers as he serves you a hot, delicious dinner
>And ywn see him dress for you like princess Charlotte
So much has been lost... O the opportunities we've had...
I might draw this actually. Thanks for the idea anon-kun.
>implying Berserk won't end with Guts raping Griffith in revenge, breaking his mind to the point where he's convinced that he's a woman, serving under Guts as the queen of Midland and giving birth to many strong heirs thanks to God Hand magic
Griffith is technically not even a guy after his rebirth so it's not gay.
I would rather make sweet love with potato casca than get 30 seconds near tomboy tsundere casca.
>in Golden Age part 2, when Griffith fucks Charlotte, his moans get much louder and faster when he starts thinking about Guts
>he cums while picturing the Behelit
He's clearly getting more turned on by his fantasy than by the girl he's got his dick inside of.
I wonder what's the deal with Void? His personality is is almost the opposite of the others and he doesn't actively fuck with people heads to have them make a contract. It's just a yes or no question to him.
Wait a second. I just realized something.
In this image, it initially looks like Charlotte is reflected in Griffith's eye. However, Charlotte has dark hair, and significantly larger breasts. The person in this image has white hair and a small chest.
To add to that, Griffith's white hair is framing the panel, as if to draw our attention to the fact that the person reflected in his eye has white hair too.
Is Griffith... fantasizing about himself as a girl getting fucked?
he remembered when he was raped by that count dude, and he realises that he isn't any different
this is why he gets caught earlier, besided Guts' "betrayal"
It is completely different though. Charlotte wanted to have sex with him.
I honestly think he just has an autogynephilia fetish. Would explain why he makes himself look more feminine after his rebirth.
I wonder if he gave himself a pussy and uterus too
I believe he's exactly what he appears to be: the brains of the god hand. Judging by the fact that he's connected to SK, and that SK's contemporary culture closely resembled that of Falconia, which is supposed to be some sort of dank magic city adjunct to the world-tree, he was probably some sort of mage that had a hard-on for knowledge.
women just don't become whores and start loving loving it because they are raped and tortured.
Women that are kidnapped and raped for years are still traumatized, this is true in real world.
but the scenario you're talking about is hentai one
Seems to me she was a prostitute
>God Hand seem like they were good people once but were corrupted by the Idea of Evil.
that's not entirely true, they were good but they had a dark side, remember how many times girffith showed those terrifying eyes?
Idea of evil just gives the power to the chosen
Godhand leads the way
Because she's been named as such and from what is implied about Void and what we see with Femto elements of who you once were are incorporated into the design. Just look at her clothes, she was most likely a whore.
Same reason I highly suspect Ubik was some King's adviser.
Shame he's like the red-shirt of the godhand. Ubik is the manipulator, Slan is distinct for personally fucking with Guts, Void has his shit with skullknight and is the leader.
But Conrad? What is he? He talks the least and seems to like rats and disease.
You'd be retarded to think I'm talking about women in general. But you have to admit that most apostles and God Hand members are born out of extreme suffering, so why shouldn't that be true for Slan?
Yeah, but elements of how you suffered are incorporated into their design too. Femto has that mask that was created as a mockery of his helmet and used to torture him.
His name is based on the book Call me Conrad.
Ubik is the most distinct because it's a spray-on commercially available product that stops time in Phillip K Dick's book of the same name.
Ubik fits with the rest of the names though. Conrad is a somewhat usual name, a bit weird for a Godhand to have
>women just don't become whores and start loving loving it because they are raped and tortured
I'm currently rereading the manga and found this, looks like that rat fat fuck konrad is making those dark ghosts out of corpses
You won't be able to see the good shit if you don't have an account and don't enable 18+ content though.
>anime isn't real
>The situation is blamed on the excessive motherly love Japanese women shower on their sons; idolizing them and viewing their sons as the greatest object of their hopes, dreams, and love, and Japan's obsessive exam culture.
>A boy's whole future can depend on the senior high school he gets into. The mothers get into a psychological condition where they're aware that sexual urges can stop their children from studying and feel that they are the best option for countering the craving. Some mothers will do anything to make sure their junior high school sons pass the all determining entrance exams. Studies show that almost 80% of Japanese men report they have had some form of sexual contact with their mothers with most of the sexual contact between mother and son beginning at a very early age. A boys childhood in contemporary Japan, although somewhat more Western than that of other Eastern nations, still includes masturbation by mothers "to put them to sleep." Parents often have intercourse with their children in the same bed with them, and "co-sleeping," with mothers physically embracing the child, routinely continues until the boy is ten or fifteen. One recent Japanese study found sons sleeping with their mothers over 20 percent of the time after age 16. A recent sex survey reported "hot lines" of sexual abuse saying that mother-son incest in almost a third of the calls, the mother saying to her teenage son, "It's not good to do it alone. Your IQ becomes lower. I will help you, " or "You cannot study if you cannot have sex. You may use my body," or "I don't want you to get into trouble with a girl. Have sex with me instead."
While I have doubts about the incest part, eastern mothers are genuinely way more physically affectionate than western ones.
I'm a Slav and my mom as well as all the other slav moms I know love to touch their sons. A friend's mom punished him with spanking up until he was well into high school.
There is an interesting link I noticed between Conrad and Ubik.
They're basically both fat bald guys with a similar head and mutilation near the eyes and hands in a rubbing position. However Conrad is always linked to the ground almost as if he's attached to it upon manifesting.
Ubik to the contrary is never on the ground and always floating. Ubik is the most talkative of the Godhand while Conrad is the least.
>A friend's mom punished him with spanking up until he was well into high school.
Source links at the bottom of the page I linked
Dude, I have a seriously bad migraine right now, and I'm laying in bed trying to have this thing pass. Then I see that pic and laugh so hard my brain feel like it's splitting in half.
So this is a Void thread.
Is Void the "sage" mentioned here?
Everyone thinks that Skull Knight = Guts and that Void = Griffith, but I don't think this is the case.
I think Void = Guts and Skull Knight = Griffith. I think Skull Knight used the power of the Crimson Behelit to become the 5th member of the godhand, then used his power to unite the kingdoms. Void pre-godhand was like guts, probably a friend who was betrayed, and upon confronting Gaiseric he was presented the opportunity to become the new 1st godhand, which he took, restarting the cyclic nature of the Berserk universe.
I think when Guts goes to confront Griffith he too will be presented with the choice of becoming the new 1st godhand, but he will refuse.
I don't think Guts is just "lucky". I think his avoidance of death is linked to his eventual destiny to restart the cycle, but his nature as a struggler will conflict with that and he will break the cycle, and in doing so the idea of evil will die, allowing mankind to move forward.
>That's a good point. If guts never left they would likely have created a kingdom together
Unlikely but possible since Guts has some really bad homo experiences because he was sold by his daddy to take it up the ass. Griffith would eventually come on to him which would be a very tough sell, but who knows maybe Guts is closeted and ultimately defeats Griffith by giving him the pointed end of his sword as outlined here >>160315277
What if he were to angrily fuck Griffith the way Donovan fucked him but Griffith enjoyed it and it was a beautiful cathartic moment, even more so than his first time with Casca?
It's six pairs here as well.
Does that mean there are actually going to be six God-hand? They are Angels, after all.
Not at all.
A man loving another man is inherently 100 times purer and carries more gravity than a woman loving a man. The love of a woman is common and cheap. That's why the Guts/Casca relationship has and always will be secondary to the relationship between Griffith and Guts.
Nothing gay about desiring to see this sweet, supple, nubile body getting bred the way it was made to be. Your dick knows what's good for it, anon.
I'd say SK, i.e. Gaiseric was basically a succesful version of Griffith and Void was his best pal.
Something something happened and Void cucked Gaiseric real hard, got locked up in the torture tower and eventually turned into a a God Hand via a behelith. Void also probably had a rather large offering as the sacrifice, most likely Gaiseric and his kingdom.
Bit of a shitty question, but what is the best translation for berserk? I've already read through it however when I downloaded the whole series it seemed to be a hodgepodge of various translations. I understood the story, but on the second readthrough I'm wondering if there is a translation that is considered the most correct/canon. The downloaded manga was by a group called Band of the Hawk, while my current readthrough is via this website
Don't know who translated this.
I just want to clarify, is mangasee using the DH scans? If so, are there any translations considered better? Sorry for sounding like a newfag but I wasn't aware of the multiple translations until recently.
You have to sacrifice a lot to become part of the God hand, so even if she was a whore, she wasn't some street slut. Maybe even ran a lot of brothels. Imagine wanting to get your dick wet and Slan just sacrificed all the whores so she could ascend to the divine, would be quite a bummer.
i think both of you are believing the memes and what you see on internet the reality is never like that, go check wikipedia and rape stats, india doesn't even come in top 100
rape is not a joke you degenerates
The thing is a woman raping a man wouldn't be any where painful as the reverse or most people would see it as a dream come true.
Though even if the woman isn't attractive, pussy is still pussy but it is pretty humiliating.
Sorry for offtopic, but I just started reading this and getting into the threads because of darksouls and I have to say - darksouls really lifted everything from this manga, just checking out all the random manga pages I can see so many things were taken from berserk. Damn how did the author not sue the creators of DS
>reading Berserk again up to Conviction arc
I can safely say that after reading with attention the golden age that Grithifth did
absolutly everything wrong holy shit what a faggot
Is she okay at least? I excpected to see her again during Falconia when I saw Luca and her band, I hope Jill wasn't slaughtered by some of the new monsters
Also I would like to see Theresia again but I'm sure Miura forgot about her
Trust me anon I can.
Things he did NOT did wrong
>ascending to power through political intrigue and assassination
>being a good leader during all the battle in golden age, especially the one against the pedo-king
>being feminine and cute
Things he did wrong
>throwing a tantrum after his fight with Guts
>After what Grithifth said about his dream and how no one could be his equal unless they opose him
>fucking the princess
>blaming Guts for all his problem
>sacrificing the band and raping Caska
Here you go, he is an ambitious leader but he played victim when Guts wanted to rise with him so he could be considered a friend
Also Femto will sacrifice what's left of humanity that's pretty wrong
>throwing a tantrum after his fight with Guts
He was just blind to his weakness, and even then he wasn't willfully so. He fucked up, but he was only human then, Casca said so herself.
>After what Grithifth said about his dream and how no one could be his equal unless they opose him
He was only giving the princess the straight dope. Being honest is not a vice. He had no idea Guts was creeping on him.
>fucking the princess
The dude had to get his dick wet. No one could've foreseen that the king was a sick fuck like that.
>blaming Guts for all his problem
He never did though.
>sacrificing the band and raping Caska
They willingly entrusted their lives to him. No one had any complaints after they died by the score during the Black Dogs chase. And after it became apparent they could no longer serve him as his army, he merely had them serve him in another way.
As for raping Casca, he had to. He had to uncuck himself after Guts emasculated him. Plus he was a god at that point, human morality does not apply.
In the end, Griffith was a good boy, and didn't do literally ANYTHING wrong.
Fool, the lasting damage from rape doesn't come from any physical pain, but from the humiliation, sense of helplessness, and loss of control/agency that accompanies it. Saying "female on male rape isn't that bad, pussy is pussy even though [the cause of the biggest mental scars from rape] is still present" is dumb.
>Only virgins who have never experienced anything like it will say that female on male rape is not bad
You're still getting pussy though??? Man, it's no wonder some of you motherfuckers are so predisposed against Griffith. You bitch niggers don't know shit about getting tail.
>multiple times we see Guts fuck shit up
>multiple times we see SK show up and BTFO what Guts fought and more
Fate and casualty aside, SK would win from knowing this
If you think about it, everything Griffith did wrong was as a direct result of Guts leaving him and treating him like dirt. I mean who the fuck just injures their best friend of 3 years and walks away forever saying nothing but "Bye"? Guts could have left in a different way if he really wanted to. And in any case he later realised that leaving was a bad decision so he really shouldn't have done it in the first place.
>He was just blind to his weakness, and even then he wasn't willfully so. He fucked up, but he was only human then, Casca said so herself.
Being "human" doesnt excuse shit, he had everything to acomplish his dream and he fucked it all up because he didn't have his personal slave anymore
>He was only giving the princess the straight dope. Being honest is not a vice. He had no idea Guts was creeping on him.
You are right on this, he didnt see Guts eavesdropping, though it still make him an hypocrite to hold a grudge against Guts because he wanted to follow his own dream, Grifith should have been able to understand him
>The dude had to get his dick wet. No one could've foreseen that the king was a sick fuck like that.
Judging from his dialogue with the king during his torture, he knew about the king desire for Charlotte, though the reader had no way to know about his fantasies
>He never did though.
I don't have the exact panel but there is the passage right before Guts touch him right before the eclipse, something like "I could never forgive you "
>about the rape and sacrifice
I understand Grifith motivation but raping caska just to spite Guts (unless he knew about the fact that he could reborn through the kid in caska womb) was a dick move, but as he became a god I don't think he have any semblance of moral.
I understand Grifith point of view but he is a monster for all he did
That's true, Guts is also to blame, listening to Grithifth philosophy about dream and friend affected him deeply and his desire to become Grifith equal led to all this shit.
He may have treated Grifith like dirt but Grifith treated everyone like shit, they are not perfect individuals but Grifith is still worse than Guts
Casca enjoyed the rape
Never said Griffith is perfect or better than Guts. Just saying that Guts is also to blame and this fuckup could have been avoided if he'd acted differently. And it would definitely, 100%, have been avoided if
Guts had impaled Griffith's tight little cunny on his throbbing meat sword
Guts did nothing wrong
>Overhears Griffith saying that he can't respect anyone as his friend until they can stand as equals besides him
>"Hey Griffith, I consider you my friend and I want you to feel the same way, so I'm leaving in order to make myself enough of a man for us to stand side by side as equals"
>"WAIT NO YOU CAN'T DO THAT REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE"
Except it was erroneous for Guts to think that Griffith could ever consider him his friend. Griffith considered him to be more than a friend from the very start and Guts should've seen that tbqh.
>Being "human" doesnt excuse shit, he had everything to acomplish his dream and he fucked it all up because he didn't have his personal slave anymore
It's no excuse, but his misstep was not morally objectionable either.
>Judging from his dialogue with the king during his torture, he knew about the king desire for Charlotte, though the reader had no way to know about his fantasies
He might've suspected, but you've got to give G-money a pass on this one. He had to get that pussy.
>I don't have the exact panel but there is the passage right before Guts touch him right before the eclipse, something like "I could never forgive you "
Nah, it was the opposite, actually. Unless you're reading bad scanlations.
>raping caska just to spite Guts (unless he knew about the fact that he could reborn through the kid in caska womb) was a dick move
No it wasn't, even putting aside the fact that Casca enjoyed his god-cock. It's a medieval society of tit-for-tat. If someone cucks you, you cuck them right back, and that's what my boy did.
I'm not saying he should've become his gay lover, that would be retarded wtf
All I'm saying is that if he wanted Griffith to see him as an equal, he didn't have to leave for that to happen. Griffith already did.
Griffith idolized Guts, he said many times that Guts is more important to him than his dream. The sad irony is that Guts left because wanted to be Griffith's equal, but Griffith already saw Guts as more than his equal.
>implying a true professional like torturer-san would do such a sloppy job dissecting Griffith's facial structures
If I submitted this for my med school facial dissection, I'd get 0/10 and be told to come back next year.
True. He'd need skin grafts to live.
I like to think that the torturer didn't remove the skin and just pulled it back for his exploration, after which he'd stitch it back up.
Also did Griffith get castrated during his torture? Everyone claims that he was but I don't remember it ever being explicitly stated.
damn man i hope you get better, btw do you think the reason you go to 4ch is getting a fucked up childhood? pretty much every guy i met here has a fucked up memory or some problem of sorts including me, i truly feel at home
Humans are a social species. Each one craves to have their name known. This is why social media and other recent online trends have spread like a wildfire.
Yet here we are shunning all of that and preferring an anonymous environment. Fucked up childhoods, abnormal genetics, or both are the most common explanations. Something made every one of us different and drawn to this place.
I snagged 1-35
on RightStufa few weeks back because they had a huge sale going on. A small part of me regrets it because who knows if we'll live to see the conclusion but it was too good to pass up.
>moronic suing culture
Amerifats are so funny. Besides, I don't think it would be in Miura's character to sue anyone. The whole inspiration taken from the Dark Souls franchise feels like a very honest singing praise, and helps to elevate even more Miura's work.
