Kentaro Miura bought a bunch of dating sims "because he was lonely" and put Berserk on another hiatus not 2 months after it restarit had come out of another hiatus.

Yeah, I wouldn't bother treating that as something more than an amusing topic to joke about. If there's really a crisis in Miura's creative drive, then this business with idolmaster is at worst a trivial initial symptom.

Story's been transpiring on an epic scale, which means epic scenes, which means pages whose level of detail matches those found in a Where's Waldo book.

That being said: I'm worried that we'll now have half a volume of fights with sea monsters before we finally reach Elfheim.

I've heard from a person who studied Miura's influences that it's not likely he's actually planning on Berserk to ever end.
Granted, that's not saying the story isn't every going to go anywhere, just that he probably won't even start plans for an ending for a long time.

Actually judging by the Shields and Helmets I'd say that was more a Greek influence, specifically Classical Greece though the arches do have a certain Roman taste I admit. The 'griffins' however make no sense in either cultures case but in this psudo-medieval setting it is understandable that they would appear.

I made this comment a week back, but it's honestly been weighing on my mind ever since they got on that ship over a year back. I've been gripped with the fear of slogging through through 5 chapters of them fighting off sea monsters. And wouldn't you know it. . .

sup plus4chan's /jam/! I'm just here to bump this thread with some interesting news you might not have seen yet.

Please note that EvilGenius mistranslated a comment from Miura in the last release saying something about a Berserk anime being canceled. Here's the correct translation of that comment.

>It's nothing new to say this, but anime series with a fighting man as the hero are almost dead (not popular anymore, he uses the word "destroyed", such a thing) these days, though I think there are still some people who want this kind of anime."

The translations from Evil Genius and especially TheHawks are actually not that great, and I think this is a good example. :<

Oh, and for anybody that wants a more in-depth answer about the whole Idolm@ster bullshit, the post in this picture overexplains it for you. In short though, it was just one or two comments Miura made about buying the game and liking MADs.

I'd personally like it to start from the beginning, or at least redo the whole Blackswordsman arc to introduce Puck, and maybe a flashback of the Skull Knight saving Guts and Casca to introduce him. I'd love to see the Wyald part animated though. I truly do want to see Skully appearing in front of Femto animated though. I don't care how, even if it's just that scene.

The ghost ship flees because the sun is rising, apparently. Roderick's ship needs repairs and so they stop by a mysterious island. Puck & Isidro encounter the strange girl while Casca & Farnese find a place where a sort of "sea god" is worshipped.

Seems the girl is most likely either a witch or a sea spirit. The symbol on her door has icons representing the four cardinal directions, kinda like what Schierke did when making a protective circle.

Guts was the first interesting thing to happen for Zodd in several centuries, it would have been a shame to see him do down because of a random moment of bad luck.

Not to mention they mistransted some lines from Zodd and Skully during the Eclipse that kinda change shit around.
Zodd is supposed to be saying that Skull Knight has opposed them for a thousand years, in the scanlations he says for THOUSANDS of years... that's a pretty big difference
Also, Skull Knight says "You've been assigned as a watchdog then?" and in the scanlations he says "So you've been assigned by the gatekeeper?"
Once again leads to confusion... there's a lot of things like that mixed throughout the story especially during the Golden Age, one of which is Griffith's speech to Charlotte(can't remember exactly what offhand) which is kinda one of the most important things in the whole series.

He was the fetus that Casca gave birth to and followed Guts around. The theory going around is that he's to serve as a vessel for Griffith, I think.

Well, the fetus was used to give Griffith a new body.
In volume 22 when he appears before Guts and Casca, Casca senses her child and rushes towards Griffith, some falling debris from Guts and Zodd fighting nearly lands on Casca and Griffith acts on a feeling from the child and saves her.

There are only theories about what this moonlight child really is, most people agree that it's somehow split from Griffith or Griffith may have even transformed into it(against his will or not... don't know yet). You can see Zodd on the cliff there when they find the moonlight child meaning he was watching over it.

In any case, the fact that Griffith used that child to be reborn and that he has reacted to feelings from it leads many to believe that it's going to be his downfall or at least contribute to it.

So in lieu of some sleep, I'm going to read volume 26 tonight. In the middle of it now and I find Slan calling Skull Knight "Your Majesty" rather telling. I'm curious as to what the real story of the old empire's destruction is. Seeing as how God in Berserk is literally the reason for all the evil things in the world, God's wrath was just due to Skull Knight being a ruler of justice. But then again there's still no end in sight and I'm not done with what exists so far, so we'll see.

Very awesome part of the story! I wish there was a good way to translate those parts where Skully is talking, it's a bit hard though. In Japanese, apparently, both Skully and Ganishka speak in some ancient-as-fuck dialect that is pretty hard to translate into English at times, pretty much think Old English, but a specific dialect for those of royal bearing. He also speaks in riddles a lot, which are hard enough to translate without it being in THAT sort of dialect... anyway I'm rambling

It also cuts out most of the supernatural elements- no skull knight or wyald- as well as most of the crazier elements of the action (no kushans anywhere, for example).

I don't really think that was meant to be major foreshadowing or anything, just showing the effect that Guts had on that town, and to show Guts feeling remorse for what he did. If you think about it she's just a teenage girl on her own, with her castle completely destroyed, and in a town full of people who hated and feared her father. You never know though, but I won't be surprised if she doesn't show up. Also, where did you get those scans from? I haven't really seen them floating around much and am wondering why people still post/read the older shitty ones...

Anyway, coming with some horrible news, that Berserk PSP game magazine picture is a fake April Fool's Day joke made by the admins at Skullknight.net.

A major component in Cosmic Horror is the existence of all of humanity as a whole being insignificant to those Eldrich creatures and the universe as a whole, but the demons in Berserk need humanity because it's what gives them new members and they (or rather their need for a cause for their suffering) are the reason the Idea of Evil exists in the first place.

Sadly, it's the pattern. Gotta get used to it. 3-5 releases, 2-4 month break, rinse, and repeat. Been going on for years now.

he kinda has a point, this sort of thing wouldn't be so glaring if it came out often and we just got off of a massive exciting arc, but we got "Griffith has his Kingdom, an awesome character who provided a nice non-Griffith antagonist is a chump."

So we get this nice little break story and it feels like...I dunno, that feeling of trying to get Ketchup from a Glass bottle if you turn it straight up.

We're just waiting on things to wait on.

Unless some crazy stuff starts happening this is feeling tedious.

I'm still balls bursting excited for the new chapter.

I thought that Gutts and Griffith were about to come to some sort of head soon, I can't see this mermaid story contributing anything beyond another monster of the year (because lets not kid, this is all we're getting for the next year at the least). The waiting just isn't being rewarded, the whole Kushan invasion was limp and undeveloped, Hawks fighting them looked nice, but lacked any weight behind it. We STILL haven't got any idea what Griffith is doing, or any indication of the Hawks plan at all. That's what I'm interested in, not these stupid kids following Gutts around. Hopefully this mermaid thing results in all the kids getting eaten, Gutts decides "fuck it" and goes back to beat the shit out of Griffith.

Also Fantasia is doing the opposite of what I want from Berserk, I don't want MORE monsters, I want more character study. I am so sick of monsters.

It's not the more monsters that's bugging me, it's the less story behind them, they aren't people via for wants and needs taking a horrible turn on the roads of fate culminating in horrid sacrifice that cause them to bear a personification of their horrid deeds, but straight up monster, look at Griffith's new band and the monsters in it and look at Gar's nose hordes and monsters, who did you feel for watch that battle? I can think of only 3 characters in that fight I gave a damn about.

Look at this new monster thing, the only person I care about is captain StARRRGHeotype.

Usually we would see this town decent in to being monsters, though the story isn't over, we could get some development, but when you are fighting a SEA GOD it just seems like a waste to have it a giant hermit crab in a ship shell, hopefully we get some development on it.

The thing that's keeping me with the arc is the toll it's taking on Guts' body, he just heal and his eye is starting to go blind, his hearing is going, etc.

Now what?

That's why I'm interested right now, but still perturbed by the sluggish story pace.

Sluggish you say? I think you'll find this image interesting in that regard... kinda. Also, it's not really going slow, this is normal for Berserk really. You never know how important a part of the story will be until it's over, I mean look at Slan and the trolls, people fucking HATED that chapter of the story and thought Berserk was finished then. This is an interesting way of showing off the effects of the new world really. Think about it. They're by the sea, on a full moon(both of which increase magic potency), they are showing the effects of the merging on Guts, a magical creature(Isma), a mythological god, Schierke's magic, and to top it all off it's a place where Farnese might get to show off what she's learned so far. Release pacing sucks though.

I can only think of three characters who fit this description: The Count, Rosine, and Ganishka. Arguably Griffith as well.

Also lol at complaining about this in the same breath as complaining about Ganishka corking it. Ganishka who brought us waves of deadly tigers and elephants.

Hey guys, good news about the break! Volume 35 has a set release date of September 29th and needs one more release in order to be a complete volume, meaning that Berserk will be back before September. It's possible that the next episode will be released on August 27th, if not then it will be on September 10th or 24th. Not TOO long to wait!

Also, on August 6th Miura will be doing something with the monthly magazine Young Animal Arashi, probably a guest cover or something.

I don't think you got it Chief, this was never a an "old VS New" bullshit thing, this was a "The story has become even more gratingly slow seeming than usual because it feels like the current story arc is boring, the slow release doesn't help" kinda deal where we just came off a big story line that kinda felt like a bit of a let down. Like Deep said, this is our chance to see the effects the big story line are having.

Anyone who makes an Old VS New? Nah man, just don't do it.

It seems that the sea god controls a fuckton of minions including the sea cucumbers, giant slugs, and who knows what else I wonder if it even had a physical body or if it is more of a spirit like the ones Schierke summons, which would explain why the Merrows would be able to seal it.

Well, it seems like we will only have 9 episodes in this volume. Berserk isn't coming out on the 10th or 24th... damn, I was hoping for a nice and short break. Hopefully this means they'll fill the gap with something interesting at least, maybe the world guide! Which would force a translation from Dark Horse at least! One volume had the Prototype for Berserk in it, so maybe it's something along those lines?

Berserk resumes serialization on the 8th of October. Volume 35 still comes out on the 29th of September, so it'll either be one episode short or contain 316 early...

I'm still hoping for some sort of extra content myself.

In other news, Volume 35's cover revealed!
