The Rosine arc was one of the high points of the manga for me. After that it was a bit more hit-and-miss.
"The will to lose one's will?"
"Absolutely. The will to make oneself completely free. Will is the wrong word, because in the end you could call it despair. Because it really comes out of an absolute feeling of it's impossible to do these things, so I might as well just do anything. And out of this anything, one sees what happens."--Francis Bacon

The Berserk 2016 Blu-ray release will replace an awful lot of the CGI with actual hand drawn animation.

Sweet baby Jesus. There's "Let's correct the animation for the home video release", there's "BUY THE BLU-RAYS LOLOLOLOL" and then there's...this.

That doesnt fix the pacing issues the anime has sadly.

I'm reading the manga from the very beginning again in preparation of Berserk & The Band of The Hawk, aka Berserk Musou, aka Dynasty Warriors Berserk. I checked the info to come out about the game and I'm really sad at the character line up. I just finished The Lost Children arc again and why couldn't Rosine be playable? She would've been perfect! Heck her transformation already gives her a more interesting move set since characters like Zod, and Wyald have their "human" forms and their transformations for bursts. Kind of like in Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn certain units put on different armor or hook into battleships for different movesets when they burst. Hopefully it's like Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage and the first game has little but the next game has almost every named character and even an unnamed one.

I sometimes wonder if somebody would ever actually bother to animate the entire saga in manga order, from the first chapter onwards, and keep it as roughly consistent as other manga adaptations. But that's very unlikely.

First Promo Image For Season 2.

For fans of the series. Here's hoping they've learned from their mistakes and learn how to fix the pacing issues/animation errors from the first season.

Key visual for season 2 of Berserk 2016-20??

SPOILER: Show

Casca looks way too Moe. Her hair is also too clean and glossy for someone who's so mentally broken she can't take care of her physical needs. But the poster looks nice.

^There's something slightly off about all the characters except Schierke and maybe Serpico, but I can't really put my finger on it.

Remeber she is cared about by people who actually... Well... CARE about her, so they likely wouldn't let her go around filthy.

^The manga does have scenes of Farnese helping her bathe and stuff and she normally doesn't look unclean, just disturbed and vulnerable. I think it's just the art style of the poster and/or her pose that makes her look weirdly different to the Casca from the manga.

I hope so, especially after she's spent years both in-universe and IRL as a madwoman. I was actually expecting Miura to try dragging out her suffering even longer.

I'm a bit confused with something with this latest chapter

SPOILER: Show
why would Casca see Guts as a protector and someone burdened with her if she's generally scared of him?

SPOILER: Show
Guts's appearance in the inner world is a pretty fearsome-looking dog, which indicates that Casca is aware of the beast lurking within him and views him as frightening; but at the same time she does also recognise that he is trying to protect her most of the time and is being weighed down by the empty shell she's become. On some level, she probably remembers Guts from before the Eclipse and is aware that he has good intentions towards her.

Well, Guts will use the Berserker Armor in a few hours. I only watched the start of the anime and promptly dropped it but hey might as well tune in and see what this looks like.

I will say the last 2 episodes are probably the strongest the 2017 anime has had since it started. Still doesn't really compare to the older anime of the manga that well, though.
