They have movies covering the golden age saga now (up through the eclipse).  They're alright, and they solve the problem the anime had at the end (the whole wtf?  How does this make sense thing).  You know if you've seen it.

I saw the anime first... then was... like ... wtf!?  wtf?

Then I read the manga.  I've watched the subs of the films--I think they're planning on making more to follow the manga too.  I can't remember how far I read the manga.

Anyways.

Anybody else here watched Berserk and read the mangas? No? Okay then.  frown

I have.  I agree with your points.  It's good if you're into violence, but it also has a lot of intrigue drama and historical nuance with it concerning medieval life.  I'm not sure the manga didn't go off in a weird direction though with the fantasy stuff... plus it's clear that the author is just making it up as he goes along..... and if you talk to Berserk fans, and/or you follow the manga religiously, you'll find out that he goes along pretty slllllooowwwwllly.... hope you haven't gotten caught up.... because if you have, you're in for some wait time.

Also, the animation in the movies gets better with each one.  They were trying out some new style and the first one has some odd stuff about the animation, but they correct those in the sequels.  I think I still like the original anime better, even though it was done relatively cheaply, and by the end of it something very wrong happened. tongue

Every once in awhile I go back and watch the first episode with Zodd... I think it's five or six... it's like a halloween episode. big grin

Oh... and I'd interject that Gutz is the only character I've seen in fiction who has any realistic business wielding the size sword that he does--a lot of japanese media has heroes who wield big swords, and that's usually off-putting to me, but Gutz pulls it off because his character is both built to be able to wield such an unwieldy weapon and because with the explanation of his background, he has reasons to both be able to wield such an unwieldy weapon and to actually want to wield it.  My best friend and I once tried to guesstimate the weight of that sword, assuming it's primarily made of iron... I can't remember what we came up with, but we guessed it was about 6 and a half feet long and about one foot wide.

Berserk is pretty cool.

I watched Berserk and really enjoyed it... even if the ending is a bit confusing.

Copy/paste of the review I posted on the IMDb after watching the series:

The first episode doesn't actually give you the answer you're looking for.  The last one, strangely enough, does.  The problem with the anime is that it leaves out characters from the manga--one of those characters is pivotal to answer your question.

I'd still recommend watching the anime first to people... they'll be confused at the end (and I'd keep that a secret), but it's an enjoyable ride if you're into it.

New Idea: An anime series from the perspective of Paul as he hunts the ends of the Earth for the 12 disciples of Jesus.

That sounds like it would be better in stop motion. Biblical epics are always better as claymation.

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been on in awhile. Everything's been really busy.

As of Friday night, I started watching Inuyasha and I'm sersiously in love with it. I don't remember having such a pleasant viewing experience ever, except for when I first watched Futurama. The main characters are highly likable, I think the plot lines are interesting and original and the animation is really, really pretty.

Well, the cosplay thread filled up long ago, which is a reason I'm putting this here.  Also, if I put it in the Star Wars thread, I might be pelted with rotten fruit and vegetables smile
