Junji Ito – Long Dream and The Story of The Mysterious Tunnel

Got 2 one shots for you this time! Long Dream This one shot by Junji Ito was just great. It was scary, had crazy art and was really entertaining and interesting as well as scary.

How A Simple Game Can Be Made So Tense and Terrifying In Anime and Manga – Musical Chairs (Liar Game)

In a lot of my favorite manga there is often a game involved which the protagonist will play against villains, and it would surprise you just how often these games come from simple origins. By adding extra rules it achieves two great things. It becomes easier to understand since everyone already knows the basic rules … Continue reading How A Simple Game Can Be Made So Tense and Terrifying In Anime and Manga – Musical Chairs (Liar Game)

Liar Game – Pandemic Game Arc Review (Round IV Qualifier Round)

That's right I' m back with reviewing Liar Game arcs! The contraband game was too confusing for me to comment on (though I really did enjoy it) and I didn't want to review the second revival game arc because it was too similar to the live action version which I had already reviewed. The sad … Continue reading Liar Game – Pandemic Game Arc Review (Round IV Qualifier Round)

Berserk is the Greatest Manga of All Time: Chapter 4

Berserk – Put Your Grasses On, waiting for so long

Berserk's opening is brilliant and since I've been discussing several OP's recently I thought I'd talk about it! Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocQ6PDiP014 A claim that people often make is that the OP doesn't fit in with the rest of the show and I couldn't disagree more. To me the music is hype to represent all … Continue reading Berserk – Put Your Grasses On, waiting for so long

BERSERK: Kentaro Miura’s Other Work / What To Read Whilst Waiting For New Chapters

Miura is probably my favourite manga artist because of his brilliant Berserk Manga which is full of dark fantasy, brilliant characterisation and stunning art work. Since the chapters release very slowly I thought I’d talk about his other work so that you can find something to do whilst waiting for that next chapter! Futatabi Futatabi … Continue reading BERSERK: Kentaro Miura’s Other Work / What To Read Whilst Waiting For New Chapters

Berserk: The Egg of the King Film – Not For New Fans Of Berserk

Films are something that I find pretty difficult to like and I often tend to dislike for reasons that I can’t really describe. It’s normally a mixture of things I dislike and my short attention span that cause me to lose interest half way through. If you want to know how much I dislike films … Continue reading Berserk: The Egg of the King Film – Not For New Fans Of Berserk

The Guardians of desire arc … Continue reading Berserk: The Significance Of Skipping The Guardians Of Desire Arc

Berserk Could Have Been Completely Different – (The Berserk Prototype)

While Miura was in college in 1988 he made a one shot manga chapter called the Berserk prototype which is set in the world of Berserk and is about the character that Guts could have been. It seems that the prototype was Miura’s first initial vision of what Berserk was going to be and it … Continue reading Berserk Could Have Been Completely Different – (The Berserk Prototype)

How Berserk 2016 Completely Misses the Point Of Berserk Manga (part 2)

Previously I discussed why the build up and ending of the skeleton fight scene completely missed the point of Berserk manga and I will continue to do this by analysing thoroughly why the build up and middle of the scene really don't do the manga justice. Section 1: The Build up The intro to both … Continue reading How Berserk 2016 Completely Misses the Point Of Berserk Manga (part 2)

How Berserk 2016 Completely Misses the Point of Berserk Manga

From the previous part we established that the main appeal of Berserk wasn’t the crazy intense action scenes and more the great story, personality and history of Guts. I would absolutely not consider Berserk an action manga. This is where the main differences between the three versions of Berserk become apparent. Berserk 2016 looks like … Continue reading How Berserk 2016 Completely Misses the Point of Berserk Manga
