Please stop excusing Griffith for what he did. Yes, he was tortured for a year. Yes, it was a horrible thing he had to go through. But it doesn’t suddenly nullify what he did during the Eclipse. I like Griffith as a character because he is intensely interesting to analyze, but that doesn’t make what he did okay. Though it’s true that the choices given to him: remain sick forever or to sacrifice the Band of the Hawk, wasn’t fair, (surely though with witches in existence he could have at least tried to find one to heal him?) but raping Casca in front of Guts was also clearly completely unnecessary. And it still does piss me off that he discarded everyone for his own benefit, but this is clearly a representation of all the worst characteristics of humanity - a selfish desire for conquest at the expense of others. In any case, you can like a character and still acknowledge that what they did was shitty, you know? No need to make all Griffith fans look like heartless, thirsty-as-fuck, murder and rape apologists.
If I were to compare Berserk to past literature, I could just call it Beowulf’s Inferno. The tragedy by Sophocles.
I can`t take isma seriously, it`s not her fault, it`s just that every time I read her name I can`t help but think of yzma from the emperor`s new groove
If there is anyone who deserves compensation/revenge the most, it is Casca.
I think Griffith’s sparing of Foss(and even Eliza) WILL bite him in the ass, just not in the conventional way.
To all the Griffith Haters, If I were in Griffith’s shoes I don’t imagine I would have chosen any other path. Tortured for 2 years, Lost all my ambition, my 2nd in command, My best friend, the girl I love. and even after 2 years I realize my body is so broken I am not capable of achieving anything I want. True Despair.
If Casca comes back to herself, I hope it’s because she wants to, not because she was forced to by someone else. The whole reason she’s the way she is now is because something horrible was done to her without her consent. The idea of her consent being over-ridden again to bring her back is really troubling.
Sonia and Charlotte are both going to learn the hard way that there is only one person that Griffith ever truly loved.
With Rickert’s slap on Griffith, I know for sure now that Guts will be able to slay the shit out the new Band of the Hawk and Griffith.
When Rickert slapped that Hoe I was like:
But then Locus got mad because his Pimp was slapped so I was like:
Rickert has some Big Balls of Steel to do that.
It seems to have turned out Ok,though.
I hope I didn’t say that too soon.
