Berserk is the Greatest Manga of All Time: Chapter 4

Since this is a review of the second chapter of the guardians of desire arc it's recommended that you read the previous one so that you can understand this post. We open the chapter directly after the previous, with Vargas, an ex-physician who got brutally mutilated, offering him the behelit in exchange for killing the … Continue reading Berserk is the Greatest Manga of All Time: Chapter 4

Berserk Is The Greatest Manga of All Time: Chapter 3

Yeah we're continuing with this series, where we go through all of the berserk chapters until the golden age arc starts, because I really like that early stuff as well! It's funny to me to have the start of a huge arc at the very end of volume one, where chapter 3 takes place. The … Continue reading Berserk Is The Greatest Manga of All Time: Chapter 3

Music Week – Gattsu (Theme of Guts)

Here we are! It's the last day of music week and this one is a treat! Probably my favourite song of all time. I love it for the peaceful tranquility it communicates in a world of terror and war known as Midland. If you ever see me with my headphones on chances are I'm listening … Continue reading Music Week – Gattsu (Theme of Guts)

Chapter 1 "The Black Swordsman" is a huge chapter and is 90 pages long and chapter 2 … Continue reading Berserk Is The Greatest Manga of All Time: Chapter 2

Berserk Is The Greatest Manga of All Time: Chapter 1

In the past I did a thing like this for chapter 1 and 2 but would like to continue it for the chapters leading up to the flashback. I just think that there is … Continue reading Berserk Is The Greatest Manga of All Time: Chapter 1

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

How Berserk Creates It’s Villains

When you see Berserk it’s very easy to generalise the villains and see them as not really threatening. Giant demons with transformative human powers don’t always make the most interesting villains yet the way that they’re created is very interesting and noteworthy. It’s very unrealistic to think that in this very real world of complex … Continue reading How Berserk Creates It’s Villains
