New Announcement: IRC<=>Matrix bridge #leftypol on Rizon
Please give feedback on proposals, new every Monday : /meta/


 No.1822[View All]

Let's see
>Guts is a low ass commoner bastard born from a corpse, meant to die, raised in a hellish world (that's literally just the same as our own before Guts encounters any actual demons) so harsh and cruel he likely has severe PTSD by the time he's 15
>Best friend Griffith is a social climbing piece of shit who has to murder and scheme to almost make it to the top, even then the ruling class tells him to go fuck himself and he has to sell his soul to the devil and murder all his friends to finally make it
>The ruling class are mostly monsters; the King is a pedophile nut that tries raping his own daughter, the "nicest" nobles were wrapped up in a brutal inquisition
>The whole world is ruled by an impersonal, most amoral entity created by human will but superseding all humans, controlling their lives based on it's own whims which are of course encouraged by the worst human impulses
>The thing everyone worships is literally evil itself
>Even the leaders of the apostles are pawns of the Market, err…."Idea of Evil"
Fuck it
The godhand are the bourgeoisie
The apostles are the petit bourgeois
Fuck yea

It sounded like his messed up his constitution from overwork in the 90's, he probably didn't have many assistants back then.

It's not a strawman because that's your retarded argument. Presenting someone naked isn't pornography, all it is is just presenting a child in a naked state which can be used to present a theme like innocence, similar to angels being presented as naked babies.

you don't even know what that anon was talking about when they said "pedoshit" (or how serious they wer about it)
you were replying to someone who was replying to someone complaining about the witch though
besides I don't agree that just having a naked child makes it pedophilic, at all

guts+skeletor eventually managing to defeat at least griffith, or mb bypass him entirely and fuck up the idea of evil
or if he was as based as some think, literally create a competing narrative with the help of skeletor to replace the idea of evil with something actually good for humans

>literally create a competing narrative with the help of skeletor to replace the idea of evil with something actually good for humans
Really it's Griffith who is more on track to do this, and it would possibly create a dilemma where Guts and Skull Knight still have a score to settle, but doing so would threaten the new causality and send humanity into despair again. Guts even refers to this in either the most recent chapter or one very close to it, saying that Griffith is intent on becoming a god. Griffith is also of course the only mortal (perhaps the only Godhand) who actually knows about the idea of evil, so there's really no way for Guts etc to pull off this plot point unless Skull Knight happens to know somehow. This might be what Miura meant when he said he thought the lost chapter might have been revealing too much. Put into context, even though it's all bought with huge sacrifices of others, Griffith's plan does seem to be creating a radically different status quo and kindling a belief in good. Of course the fact that Griffith is a complete monster and a literal demon is where the drama comes from.

Griffith still sacrifice humans to the demons "protecting" the humans though.
That's one of the points that I don't see how you reconcile it with "good" unless you mean the greater good.

 No.7826

>>7803
I don't think Griffith is good at all. I just think he's in a better position to replace the idea of evil. He might even be a worse replacement, but the point is the dramatic irony where the heroes try to stop a true monster from incidentally doing something good.

 No.7914

I actually kind of like Schierke's crush on Gutts. I think it's pretty realistic to a degree if the little witch has been living in the woods with her teacher her whole life then meets this big handsome super anti-hero. What sells it for me being more than wish fulfilment pedobait is that Gutts obviously doesn't think of Schierke romantically and probably isn't even aware of her feelings, and to be fair he's had much more important things to worry about. Considering Gutts own experiences getting raped as a kid, his benign relationship with Shierke and his mentorship of Ishidoro really highlight his growth as a character.

So to speak. More like, how much of Miura's death is due to the consequences of his position in the anime industry?

It's well known that the pace of Berserk releases dropped off as the series went on. How much was the commercial success of Berserk a factor? Early on he was only a mangaka, but by 2021 Berserk isn't just a manga series but a commercial institution. On top of drawing the manga, he has assistants to oversee, toy designs to approve, deals to authorize, etc. All the while his health is deteriorating, working himself to death in order to compete with the insane labor demands of the manga industry, not unlike Osamu Tezuka.

Is Miura being lazy and getting addicted to [email protected] just a useful fiction to cover for the insane level of exploitation, the inhuman workload it takes to try and compete in the anime/manga industry?

 No.9603

>>9559
Miura was a victim of the manga industry working mangaka to the bone. The idolmaster memes are a product of him adopting a more reasonable schedule for the level of work he put into each issue. But given the kind of death he suffered, it's likely he was already fucked by that time. Aortal dissection indicates a huge amount of chronic stress. Unless he just walked away from Berk for several years he was probably bound to slowly decline until a major artery just ripped open. And if he had been able to take the time off and recover he may have been able to come back with a better approach and let the assistants do more work on it.

I wouldn't trust someone randomly posting one untranslated page, BUT
<supposedly Miura had finished the manuscript, meaning the story/plot was his, but the layouts and dialogue aren't all his
<the announcement in YA is that they still aren't sure if they are going to continue
So whatever this issue has is Miura's in the broad strokes, and it's not a conclusion.

 No.9937

>>9928
Yeah ok that's not at all what happened. This is the beginning of the interaction they have and it comes right at the end of the chapter. Either Griffith's next move is to leave through the magic highway or he has a conversation with Guts + Casca like on the hill of swords (probably the latter). The last panel mirrors one of the last panels of the Black Swordsman arc, as they are both the first time we see either the Black Swordsman or the White Hawk showing an actual emotion. The difference is with Griffith it's not genuine. It's the last remnant of moonboy as he transforms back into Griffith. The point is that he really doesn't have any emotion left, and the only way he feels anything is when he's effectively being possessed by someone else. With Guts it's a crack in the facade of manliness showing that he really is human after all. Also yes apparently this chapter was mostly Miura's work, with the assistants finishing it up for publication.

 No.9959

Well they announced Duranki is officially canceled, but no news on Berserk. This suggests one of these scenarios:
<It's undecided what's going to happen
<They are going to try to finish it
There's no real reason not to announce Berserk's cancelation if that's already decided. My guess is Studio Gaga is moving on from the manga that was created to train them for Berserk and going to try doing Berserk. They will have to figure out the internal structure of how to organize the team for that, and they may lose some of the artists who may have creative differences. Berserks was always led by 1 person with a clear vision, so pivoting to a team-based structure would be logistically challenging. If they are going to continue it will take time for them to figure out their process and might include a trial run like Miura's prototype for Berserk. Even if everyone at Studio Gaga walks out on the project out of respect (which I doubt would align with Miura's wishes), there's too much money to be made on the franchise (especially now), so it's inevitably going to continue. We might see some kind of spin-off or flashback arc before a continuation of the story. It would be appropriate timing considering the parallel between the end of 364 and the end of the Black Swordsman arc pointed out here >>9937

All things must come to an end some time. A sequel series is out of the question for this manga and the story doesn't have any place left to go really.

The story is just before shit's about to get real and the creator dying has made it even more notable. The IP owner will want to make more, even if it's just a spinoff showing Rickert getting trained by Silat in whatever's left of the Kushan Empire. Honestly that might be an even more marketable story, much more shonen-like.

Really? And what would be the path the story could take from the most recent chapter?
