    I'm pretty excited about this finally being released but I am horrible at waiting when a series is going so I will probably wait until the whole thing is done then binge watch.

    The berserk musou game looks like it could be amazing though. May finally need to plunk down the cash for a PS4.

    Episode 4 was really strong, probably my favorite one so far. I like that they aren't resorting to the typical pacing issues that most adapted manga suffers from. They're giving every scene just the right amount of time to establish the characters and the events. This show is really satisfying my requirements to be considered a success in most respects.

    Just picked up my 9mm Parabellum Bullet single for Inferno, which just came out two days ago. Haven't listened to it yet but I really like the song and it's growing on me more with every listen. Not as good as the Berserk 2016 insert song 'Hai Yo', 'Sign' from the PS2 game or Aria from the 2012 movie trilogy. But it's significantly better than Tell Me Why from the '97 series. For me, I'd put it in the same level of appeal as Ai's Utsukushimono, although Inferno is a vastly different song.

    Mozgov and crew were great. This feels so close to the manga. I am really digging it.

Still, the episode moved fast and I didn't notice the time go by. Also, I loved the return to Midland an the impending invasion of Emperor Ganishka's forces. Man, if they show this shit, it's going to get bloody.

    A little disappointed that the scene with possessed Farnese straddling the Dragonslayer used 'strategic' angles to keep from being too graphic but I understand why since it's a TV show. The important thing is that the tone of the scene was correct and I feel they're nailing the characters very well.

    But I was really mostly thrilled about the stuff with Midland at the end. I'm so glad that this show is going to be ambitious and include many of these major and very complicated plot points.

    Also, seeing Mozgus in the preview for episode 4 was fucking awesome. Guess that means they are actually skipping past the Rosine stuff and going right to the Tower and the bulk of the Conviction arc. Since you have so many characters to add to Guts' group, such as Isidro, Farnese and Serpico, as well as getting Casca into the mix, it's probably better that they're skipping over the arc.

    As a massive Berserk fan, I acknowledge that we are losing something with the discarding of Lost Children, but I'm going to try to appreciate the show for its intentions rather than bitching about what's missing. As long as the core concepts and spirit are preserved, I can deal with a few omissions.

    I am really loving the look of the show now and here's why

    I just watched a few other anime, even some that have sparing amounts of CGI in them and other than Gundam: The Origin, they all look homogenized. They all look the fucking same. All the same boring art style, all the same shitty textures, all the same shortcuts in technique.

    Berserk, for all of its copious CGI, looks different from everything else out there. Different from everything I've ever seen. It has a unique visual identity and I fucking love that distinction about it. Just like the manga, it's very much its own thing and I am glad for that.
    I agree with everything youre saying except for skipping the lost children arc I think they really should have included it and disagree with the omission of it. I think that arc had a lot to offer for guts character develop and realizing that he has no bounds to how far he will go to kill apostles. I also thought it was a great arc in understanding the Behelit's a little better and offered some more character development for puck. That was an entire volume of information and it has me a little worried that they might be going too fast and skip too many parts of the Manga.

    This is what worries me. What else they skip for the sake of nostalgia and to take advantage of it for their own intrests. But lets hope no more gets omitted.

    5th episode keeps it going.

    Honestly, I'm starting to just laugh at the Berserk fans that don't like the anime. Personally, I think it's hitting the mark. These people...

    Gotta agree with you as well Taiso, i can't see why so many berserk fan's are hating on the new show, it's never going to be perfect, but meh, it could be far, far worse.

    Oh, I completely understand why some people are vocal about how much they hate it.

    -They think the CGI is bad
    -Missing/skipping storylines
    -Misinterpreting characters (according to them)
    -They don't like the soundtrack
    -Not understanding the source material

    Basically, they believe it's getting everything wrong. And if you say you like it, you get jumped on for not sharing their viewpoint.

    And you can't even make a case. They won't hear it.

    So I understand their frustration.

    But they're really just crying that the show isn't what they think it should be. By and large, they can't see it for what it is.

    You can't win with these people. Don't even bother trying.

    This show is fantastic !! I haven't been into anything like this since many many years. The athmosphere is great, I also think the animation honors the style of the mangas and the sound of his sword is just amazing !

    I can't understand why people wouldn't like this, I just hope it gets enough viewers and profits in Japan, to keep it going.

    Puck is to this show as Farnese is to the haters.

    Puck is good. Just like in the comic. Farnese is done well, I just don't like her voice.

    I love puck hes an awesome character imo. Just watched the new episode and I really liked it, best one yet and they hit on everything that they needed to. Hope they make a few more episodes out of the conviction arc as there is a lot going on.

    Yeah i do as well Taiso, but personally i'll put up with the cgi and the gaps in the plot.
    It's a tough ask to do the manga justice when it's so well loved by the fan's.
    To be honest i only started reading the manga because of the 97 anime, i wanted to know what happened after the eclipse.
    I'd never heard of it before i watched the anime and i was hooked after the first episode.
    But back on track the only other anime series that's had me this hyped in recent years was ghost hound, and that was about 8 years ago now, so they're doing something right for me at least.

    My allegory was meant as a metaphor.

    Puck is awesome but Farnese can't see him.

    This show is awesome but the haters can't see it.

    Puck's exchange with Isidoro after he catches up to them was great; just enough levity without breaking the mood.

    Yet another great episode that's really got me excited to see the Incarnation Ritual. I hope we get to see a bit of background on Nobody, I really felt for him in the manga.

    Man that animation looks so bad, I love the story of gatsu but I don't think I can get into that. Bring back old school anime.

    It's not coming back. Even if the industry gets healthy again, companies will continue to cut corners, understaff production and overwork them. This is the new business model and it will never go back to 2D hand drawn as the norm.

    It's over. A fully hand drawn show that doesn't look like complete shit is too rare to rely on now.

    The animation is not that bad. And its shaping up to be a good anime. It does feel rushed like its progressing to quickly. It just may be the difference of watching compared to reading.

    I think you're on the money by noting the difference between reading and watching.

    If you watch, for example, Dragonball Kai, you'll notice how the story just blazes by. Compare that with the manga or even the original Dragonball Z, which had a shit ton of padding, awkward pacing and filler arcs, and you begin to see the problem with older anime shows in general, especially when adapted from a source. Sometimes they take too long to tell their story when there's a better, more efficient way to do it without losing any of the emotional potency from the visuals or the narrative.

    Berserk, on paper, is easy to absorb because there are so many details in each and every panel. Every single image in the manga is a work of art painstakingly crafted by Miura.

    But the anime doesn't need to be that. The anime doesn't need to take long, ponderous shots on each and every scene. I think that when people ask for that sort of meandering, ponderous visual aesthetic because 'that's how the manga is', they're being art fags.

    The TV show is detailed and visually complex in its own way. The problem is that so many Berserk fans are so effete about their vision of the source that there's no room for interpretation. It's a combination of a small group of people bitching and moaning about what they believe the spirit of the manga to be and everyone else is either being shamed into agreeing with them or they're just jumping on the bandwagon because anime fans are some of the worst hive mind haters on the internet.

    Show is great. Looks good. Well paced and doing exactly what it needs to do.

    I think the difference though is in the original series they really stretched the golden age arc but in a really good way. The scenes, the character development is what propelled the manga to its height.
