I predict that Guts and his friends will get all the power-ups they need, but the Elf King will not be able to cure Casca. He(or one of the mages) will, however, claim that “Only the Absolute can cure her” and we all know who the Absolute is.

Silat is the only antagonist who has called off his minions from attacking Guts when they predictably get slaughtered. That, and the fact that he’s the only person to have restrained Casca without trying to rape her, says volumes about his intelligence and/or his ethics.

Secretly, I think that the Eclipse Arc would actually transfer well to the stage, preferably like an opera or rock opera…. oh God, I just imagined a fat  Casca with a Viking helmet and a brassiere!!!

This opinion might be a little controversial, because I’ve seen some people who really hate the dub, but I like Marc Diraison a lot more than either of Guts’ seiyuu. He had some awkward moments in the original series’ dub, but as the show went on, he put so much passion and emotion into his performance that I find it hard to imagine anyone else playing the character. The moments in the series that cemented this for me are in the second half of episode 25. The part where he fell into the lake of blood and shouted in desperation at the top of his lungs, pleading for his comrades to answer him was heartbreaking, and the part where he cut off his arm and screamed in rage at Griffith was so blood-curdling and powerful it still gives me chills when I watch it.
I watched the Japanese version of those two scenes recently, and in my opinion it was honestly flat and passionless in comparison. His seiyuu didn’t do a horrible job, but for a character in such an extreme situation who’s meant to be so filled with rage and pain, he didn’t sound nearly as animated and livid as he should have.
The new seiyuu for Guts sounds even less impressive. In the scenes where Guts shouts he lacks the power and intensity I would expect, and his screaming sounds like an irritating loud and raspy groaning rather than genuine screaming. In the part where Guts is running away from the cave after The Eclipse and he’s wailing in anguish the seiyuu once again let out a flat groaning sound. Marc’s wail is a lot more powerful and emotive. He sounds like a man who just escaped from Hell after having everyone he loved torn away from him.
Trust me, I am not a close-minded dub fanboy who refuses to give the original versions a proper, non-biased chance. In fact, as much as I like Kevin T. Collins in the new movies, I think that Griffith’s new seiyuu is utterly amazing and I’m very torn on which I like better. Marc Diraison on the other hand… he IS Guts and perfectly matches how I expect him to sound when I read the manga. He has a distinct voice that fits Guts’ tall and muscled physique better than the two seiyuu, he delivers on the emotion and portrays Guts’ every vulnerability without missing a beat, and the moments where he has to express extreme emotion sound a lot more powerful and convincing than either seiyuu.
I apologize in advance if I come off as arrogant, melodramatic, close-minded and long-winded, I certainly don’t intend to, but I feel pretty strongly about this and wanted to speak my piece.

Judging by Devilman, Berserk is NOT gonna have a good ending

I think that when a new Godhand is born, they’re allowed their own ‘project’.  The reason I think Slan is the second oldest, other than the fact that she’s been around long enough to be known as the Whore Queen of the Uterine Sea, is that her project was the Qlipoth, her own dimension from which monsters people have mythologised for ages, seem to come from.  Conrad’s project was the Black Plague which is still going on, so he would be the second youngest.  And Femto’s project would then be the realisation of Griffith’s dream.  I have no idea was Void or Ubrik’s projects were

This is just mere speculation, but I believe that the order the Godhand members were born is: Void, Slan, Ubrik, Conrad and, of course Femto

please help me out becuase I´m pretty lost here, why are the first chapters of berserk listed with lettes and then numbers in some sites? the main site I use to read manga (mangapark) lists them with numbers from the start, but on kissmanga the first 17 chapters are listed as 00A 00B etc, and both sites reach up to 336, where do I start? (sorry to bother)

That’s generally why some people prefer not to read the manga on websites. Some of them are posted out of order. As for why? I honestly don’t know. Batoto has them in volumes. So, I started from the bottom at Volume 1 and worked my way up. At least that’s what works for me.

Am I the only one who thinks that Lord Locus looks like Tommy Wiseau?

You don’t know the value of.what you have have until you.lose it. Guts learned.that lesson in the cruelest way possible. I kinda blame him.for happened to.the hawks.too. Though I know it was bound.to happen.from the start because it’s Griffith.Destiny. still I.have those.moments.where I just.blame.Guts for.losing.the.closest thing he.had.to a.family.
