>> No. 71038
The only thing I want out of Isma is for Guts to nail her. Unlike generic castrated male characters in Japanese stuff Guts *gasp* does get sexually frustrated when he nearly raped Caska himself. What better way to let off some steam than fucking Isma or one of the multitude of mermaids. Lord knows Caska as she is won't give him any.

Is it just me or Caska really fails as a love interest? She's too much of a bitch and truth be told I don't care about saving her. I care about getting back to getting strong enough to kill Griffith/Femto and the god hands. If Guts picked himself up a new girl I wouldn't mind.

>Chica Umino, which some of you may remember as the author of March Lion, has posted a long review of the movie on Twitter. In short, she says that because Miura is a very good friend and an esteemed colleague of hers, she was a bit apprehensive and negative about the prospect of a movie, like other Berserk fans. She was afraid they wouldn't do it justice, and didn't want to see his life's work be treated badly. But after seeing it she's pleased. She's pretty enthusiastic about it overall, and says Miura himself wore a "mysterious smile" and seemed proud of the movie.

Maybe CG is too ambiguous to describe it, but the whole movie looks like a cel-shaded video game rather than something animated.

It's animated in the same style the last few Ghost in the Shell films have been filmed in.

I don't really mind the cel-shading, it allows for some movement that the hand-drawn animation cannot capture especially in the sword fights.

Guts gets knocked through a wall and then appears above on top while on fire, having allowed himself to be hit for the superior position.

Then before that leap to crush, maim and kill a monster this plays:

You know, not to toss Mary Sue around, but Griffith, as part of the story, is a Mary sue, like according to how the God of the universe has set him up he is a literal Mary Sue, but he also operates outside that. No one in the "story" according to Skull Knight, can touch, stop or in anyway actually hurt him.

In short, he's what I now think of as a Meta Sue, his existence comments on the nature of the untouchable, completely perfect character and how it loses what is human in that perfection.
>> No. 71473
For some reason, I read "Griffith" as "Guts," and prepared to hate you forever.
But yeah, I kind of agree, but I think that this can be discussed just as easily without couching it in terms of "Mary Sues," or some variation on such.

Berserk [Egg of the King I] - …youtube thumb
Too much awkward and stiff CG for me.
>> No. 71596
It still sticks out a lot, but it's more lively than usual. I've definitely seen much worse. The only shots I thought looked outright bad were when they first rushed out of the siege enginee (everyone looked blatantly weighless) and the guy on the commander on the horse.

I also like the sound design, which is something I can't saw for much anime.

They're really going loose with the spoilers in that opening, aren't they? See you in like half a decade, animated Schierke...
>> No. 71599
Hmm, I'd say its a mixed bag overall. The whole thing looks great- in static shots, but the animation is decidedly subpar, as mentioned before. A bit too PSX-era for my tastes, that guy with a halberd circling around Basuzo (who apparently lost quite a bit of weight, I liked his old Michelin Man shape) stuck out as looking particularly bad.

It felt a little weird seeing dudes in accurately (to a certain extent) rendered High Medieval gear being a bit (too) Japanese, you'd notice that sort of thing in battlecries and death screams.

Finally- why does everyone's voice except for Judau seem to have changed...
>> No. 71628
The overall style of the animation, CG and all, reminds me of the PSP port of Final Fantasy Tactics. Which worked great thing for that game, but looks terrible here when combined with Berserk's realistic designs. The fact that I don't think I noticed any significant handdrawn animation at all there makes me wonder if some of the CG is actually handdrawn after all, but colored in such a way as to make it look CG. At least I enjoyed the choreography and storyboarding.
>> No. 71644
The War of Lions cutscenes DID feel way better because they got across the 'ancient storybook' feel because of the crosshatching and vivid colors.

Here stuff just looks weightless and washed out. Even the blood spatters look all pastel.

>At least I enjoyed the choreography and storyboarding.
Yeah, that was sort of shining through better than the CG quality itself.

I don't know, doesn't it look more similar to how things look in the astral plane? Farnese and Schierke have kinda similar trimming on them as well. Besides that, the only thing Griffith got was the kid's physical body (the lumpy fetus thing) this kid seems to be separate from that.

And yeah, the movie's CGI looks kinda...shitty at times. Kinda kills my enthusiasm, especially since this is supposed to be a goddamn movie from Studio 4°C, they're better than this.
>> No. 71799
It does look odd at times but it's not as bad as some of you guys are making it out to be. On the other hand if they are really going to adapt the whole thing then it can only get better.
>> No. 71800

Maybe, but the times it looks bad are particularly heinous. The commander on the horse? His face barely even moves. Same with most of the foot soldiers. Tatsunoko Production already showed off how CGI can look fluid and natural against traditional animation with Karas and Studio I.G. has been doing it with Stand Alone Complex for years (Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence looked kinda crappy, though.)

As far as Isma, I won't miss her. To me she's just Isidro's love interest and that's kind of lame to me. I just don't particularly care about Isidro or Shierke. Puck gets an excuse due to not being human though he himself can also ruin the tone of certain scenes.

Didn't Skull Knight say that Guts was "special"? But even so I hope they don't pull shounen level bullshit like Guts being randomly the son of a supernatural creature since for decades this manga has never shown Guts having any special powers.

The only thing that made Guts "special" is that Skull Knight saved him at the Eclipse AND he saved Caska as well, does that mean she's special too? Not really. So hence I disagree, better keep Guts as a common man. I can accept magical relics like the Berserker Armor, but if Guts is inherently made supernatural then it will destroy Berserk's story.

By special he meant Guts exists out of Griffith's (Universal Destiny as determined by "god") story.

In other words, Guts is only "special" in that he is SO COSMICALLY UNIMPORTANT to the point where his "narrative"/Destiny would have him dead at least twice over.

Guts is like a background character who was about to be killed off and went "NO, FUCK YOU, I WILL NOT DIE HERE."

That is why Skull Knight calls him "Struggler."

I don't think so, it's there as a reminder of Gut's features matching that of his soul, like Serpico's extremely fox like face, plus everything about Guts outside of the armor is "Fuck you faggot ass monsters I'm human right down to the fucking marrow in my bones."

Speak for yourself. I don't care for Caska. I prefer Guts find himself another chick who isn't a bitch. To say you want Guts to save Caska is to say that you want Naruto to hook up with Sakura who is also a bitch. Sorry, but I just don't like protagonists getting with bitches. The only difference between Naruto and Berserk is that the latter being Seinen means Guts has a chance actually getting laid. It still doesn't mean he should get with Caska who is bad for him. Especially now in her retarded state who does nothing but psychologically haunt Guts.

Before she got raped. Caska treated Guts horribly. And spare me the BS that "They were enemies." No no no. Corkus was a jackass who decided to try to kill Guts and steal from him. Guts showed him up and put him in his place.

After joining the Hawk four years pass and even after four years the soldiers comment that Caska is always berating and picking fights with Guts. If that doesn't make her a bitch, then in your opinion nothing ever will. Or I must have imagined all the times Caska even smacked Guts around including when he was crippled after the Zodd fight all the while painting him as the object of blame for Griffiths, non-existent, injuries.

Dude, It's like you've tuned out everything involving Caska after the Guts leaves the Hawks and tuned back into just before the tower of God, before her brain FUCKING BROKE she loved Guts and was the opposite of a bitch to him, need I remind you how HE FUCKING STRANGLED HER?
>> No. 78822
Wait, so you're telling me it’s bad for a band of mercenaries that see their fellow Hawks die on a daily basis to not immediately trust and suck the dick of the protagonist? That Caska - the woman and soldier that wanted to be Griffith's "sword and sheath" and most trusted warrior - can't get jelly of Guts essentially stealing her place and Griffith's interest without really even wanting to be part of the group initially, because she has tits? That the fucking three way, psychotic love triangle around said characters -- that involved everything from bizarre shared rape trauma to fucking demon orgies -- can be compared to some Kishimoto trash that you very badly non sequitured into, thinking that somehow establishes a valid point or reason to derail another thread into one of your anti-woman tirades? That Guts isn't some poor abused little male baby that you just want to cuddle and actually has had angry/confused sex with Caska and massacred more people/apostles than there are likely stars in the sky at this point?

This isn’t some retard ninja world where bloodlines decide everything. This is a dark fantasy where people get killed, maimed or turned into fucking monsters because they all have compelling faults or Raison d'être behind their horrible acts. Do you even actually read Berserk to see how terrible a world all these characters live in or are you inattentive of actual story points as you are unable to form a coherent thought without referencing as many other anime or cartoon characters as you possibly can?
>> No. 78824
So guys make it seem like Guts WANTED in. No way, Guts didn't want to join any group mercenary or military or noble. He just liked fighting random battles and that's it wandering around the country. If they were so upset why didn't Caska and the group bitch at Griffith who was the one telling them "Be nice to my new favorite....or else."

Paperman Breakdown by John Kah…youtube thumb

Berserk's original series was in 2D and 2D is how it should stay. I want 2D theatrical high tier animation to in time become very affordable and further refined, thanks due in part to the technology that makes up the engine for Paperman. What I wouldn't give to see those new Berserk movies being done by this kind of in theatrical 2D (since hand drawn has become too pricey and 2D is now not popular and even resented) instead of those CG amateurs they hired.

>> No. 79335
It's been way too goddamn long since we've seen either character.

Also the requirement for sacrifice isn't "innocent" it's "someone precious to you." Often this has been done right after such a person betrayed the would be apostle, as was the case with Lord Slug and Ganishka.
>> No. 79336
I guess. I was thinking about Griffith's own example of a sacrifice. Killing those who risked their necks to help him out of jail, who worshiped him, and were willing to die (by their own choice that is) for him makes him a colossal piece of shit.

Other apostles sacrificed amoral people. But in the end, I still find the basic concepts of an apostle to be deplorable. Which begs the question just who did Skull Knight fuck over to gain his new form? Never mind that Skull Knight is not like the others. He doesn't feel tempted into obeying the will of the God Hands like other powerful apostles like Ganishka.
>> No. 79337
Skull Knight is not an apostle at all. We pretty much know for sure that he's the Emperor of the lost Empire, and I at least believe that Void is the man the Emperor supposedly locked away who led to the Empire's destruction.

I personally think it's pretty clear that Griffith is going to save Midland, become the hero of the people, be loved by all... and then Guts, after changing into a horrible dog beast, is going to finally kill Griffith. Thus cementing him as a demonic beast/villain for all time.

I also doubt they're being used for another sacrifice, but clearly something is brewing. I was putting my money on the theory previously posted (which I can't seem to locate) that Griffith was going get bored, fuck off to nowhere, and let the last bastion of humanity collapse. But then this meeting with Rickert seems to be going against that. Griffith has probably figured out something more that he wants, but he's basically at the ultimate "what now" stage.

> The God Hand have their own fantasy zones.

I'm still confused as to their motives in this whole ordeal: was that something they actively wanted or did they just have nothing better to do?
>> No. 88199
I think we don't have enough information about the God Hand and what they want to make even an informed guess as to their final motives. But it can't be denied that Fantasia was clearly just a midpoint in their plan, in order to let them manifest directly into the world, rather than a goal in itself. And all their plans do seem to revolve around sacrifices.

Still it seems more likely that by making Griffith a figure of worship by the people of Falconia, they're making him more powerful. What for? No idea, but there's probably some endgame they're pushing towards.
