@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.

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. :(
