@  Mig64 : (09 July 2020 - 09:46 PM) It's a tragedy over here, we still haven't reached US levels yet but our own government is working really hard to surpass you guys. They're so committed to not fight the pandemic one might think they're using it for genocidal purposes. Some of our legal experts even filed charges against our president for crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court.
@  Mig64 : (09 July 2020 - 09:40 PM) Good to know Switzerland is doing fine, I really envy you guys in that regard, hahahaaaha. And yeah, I've been following some news about the US, Blazer. It's good to know you're staying safe, what with all those people somehow equating social distancing with communism and all sorts of conspiracy theories. It actually reminds me a lot about my own situation here in Brazil.
@  Fire Blazer : (09 July 2020 - 08:53 PM) it's pretty bad over here (the U.S.A.) though how bad depends on where exactly in it one is talking about... I'm basically still just quarantined, even if I wanted to go out it's honestly a bit stressful
@  xcrash1998 : (05 July 2020 - 09:14 PM) what about you
@  xcrash1998 : (05 July 2020 - 09:14 PM) Switzerland is pretty much all clean by now
@  Mig64 : (30 June 2020 - 08:24 PM) By the way, is everyone alright? What with the ongoing pandemic and everything...
@  Mig64 : (30 June 2020 - 08:22 PM) :(
@  Fire Blazer : (13 June 2020 - 05:21 AM) :(
@  Fire Blazer : (13 June 2020 - 05:21 AM) not really, it's pretty dead around here
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2020 - 06:53 PM) Anyway, did I miss anything?
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2020 - 06:25 PM) Whew, I FINALLY got my password right
@  Fire Blazer : (24 May 2020 - 11:23 AM) sigh
@  xcrash1998 : (24 April 2020 - 12:35 PM) I will let blazer know
@  Fujisaki : (23 April 2020 - 08:16 PM) Yeah, sure. Hopefully that'll be more livelier than here.
@  xcrash1998 : (23 April 2020 - 09:37 AM) Just came here after I saw you replying to my PM lol
@  xcrash1998 : (23 April 2020 - 09:36 AM) We have a discord now, maybe you want to join
@  Fujisaki : (22 April 2020 - 10:33 PM) Oh well. If anyone's interested, hit me up on discord. I'm usually active on there...
@  Fujisaki : (22 April 2020 - 10:17 PM) Thought the place would liven up with Three Houses being released last year...lol...whoops.
@  Fujisaki : (22 April 2020 - 10:13 PM) HOLY FUCK I REMEMBERED MY LOGIN SHIT.
@  Fire Blazer : (18 March 2020 - 03:18 AM) hope everyone is managing ok...

Seriously, did anyone else on here read Berserk? I need to talk t someone about this series, now. Thoughts on what Guts really is, who the moon child is, whether the change of tone in the series is good or bad, is it ever going to end?

 

Or just freaking over how badass this series really is.

I feel bad you didn't really get any responses

 

but somehow I kinda thought this would happen--it's just too dark for most people, I think. >_____>; (myself for sure... I don't need more dark/depressing things in my life, my life is depressing enough as it is, without fiction, lol)

Berserk is actually extremely popular. I've found that the less problems someone has in their life the more attracted they get to horror.

 

I recall reading the first chapter a few years ago, seeing Guts being raped by a demon or whatever, and went "yeah ok no."

 

I did watch the Golden Age movies because someone told me that's a better start...and ended up only really interested in the fight scenes anyway though.


I believe in judgment of humans through their judgment of fiction, for nothing else tells better of their disposition freed from apprehension.

well I know it is, what I meant is that for the people who know about it but don't read it, it's probably because it's too dark/gruesome/etc.; didn't mean hardly anyone reads it because of that. sorry for the misunderstanding, I worded it poorly XP

 

 

I've found that the less problems someone has in their life the more attracted they get to horror.

 

maybe... this would make sense, but then again, humans don't consistently make sense, so idk, lol. it is kind of the resaon I don't expose myself to a lot of dark things: they're cool and all and it's a nice change of pace but if I'm being entertained, I don't want to be suffering as a part of that, generally, so I need a good amount of positive entertainment to balance out the negatives, or it actually affects my mental health a bit (e.g. those shows with bad endings or where everyone dies or crap)

So far I'm liking it, though I've only reached chapter 4. It is dark as hell, and I actually felt uncomfortable reading it in broad daylight XD

Gutts seems cools, though I don't like the "don't help people" too much, and Puck is kinda annoying somethimes. Hope to be able to say more. (Also the brand looks kinda like the hunters mark from Bloodborne)

Berserk is honestly one of my favorite manga series. I haven't read it in years, but I know I made it through the Golden Age arc which honestly DESTROYED me emotionally. Haha. I was exhausted by the end of it. But then we got to the Conviction Arc and it was silly and awesome again. :)

 

Yeah, Volume 13 honestly wrecked the heck out of me and I couldn't read it again after a week or two. I made it up to Volume 20, I believe but I put it down and didn't go back to it for a long while.

 

It's such a good series and I highly recommend it, but it does get pretty absurd in the early story. :(
