When Casca gets better, I wanna see her slap the taste out of Griffith’s mouth.

The post about the fandom being elitist really hit home for me. As a girl who loves Berserk, I feel like it’s twice as hard. In typical ‘geek-girls-must-be-fake’ fashion, I’ve often had to prove I loved Berserk by answering a gauntlet of trivia questions by male fans, because what girl could possibly love such a story?!
Why do fans feel they have to guard their fandoms to the point of ruining it for others? Are you really so insecure that you need your fandom to help identify who you are, and if others you don’t ‘approve’ of get in on it, it threatens you? I don’t think any of the men in Berserk are that insecure. Take a lesson from them.
My only regret is joining Berserk internet forums. It was such a negative experience for me. I felt like I always had to “impress” them and act like an elitist, pretentious otaku if I didn’t want to be bullied or treated like an idiot. I much prefer liking Berserk on my own if it means keeping away from that group of people.
It’s always really funny to me when guys are “surprised” that I, a ~girl~ likes Berserk. I also enjoy Lucky Star and listen to Morning Musume. I have a variety of interests wow who would have thought??? Besides, doesn’t Miura play iDOLM@ASTER?
Something gives me a bad feeling that Guts will end up siding with Griffith for some reason. I don’t know why I have this feeling but it seems like the direction its gonna go.
I think sometimes berserk fanboys can be a little too close-minded about anything in the series that isn’t super-macho or related to guts. I mean, it should be perfectly fine if someone’s favorite character is griffith, or if they enjoys things in about the series other than guts killing monsters..
People who speculate about Guts sacrificing Casca, Casca sacrificing Guts, Serpico sacrificing Guts, etc., etc., are PAINFULLY IGNORANT. Did you ever read the manga? Guts and Casca were sacrificed to Griffith, and noone else could ever sacrifice them.
