Guts and Griffith from Berserk
Berserk: it’s one of the comic series that I repute perfect: an elaborated and realistic story with charming characters and deep themes.
I love the dirty and quick brush stripe in the dynamics of the fighting scenes, and the meticulousness in the representation of its fantasy/horror medieval locations.
The first part of the story is more or less a biography of Guts, and how he became the Black Swordsman, a long flash back full of action, emotions, brutality, love, sex and fucking cool monsters ù_ù.
I can say that the author, Kentaro Miura, it’s kind ... well... brave? He make a lot of dangerous choices in his story, and the result it’s (obviously in my personal opinion) a master piece of manga.
Here some images (WORRY, there’s a little bit of violence... maybe a little bit too much violence) :[link] [link] [link] [link] [link]
It’s also one of the few tales where I admire the love story, I really care for the destiny of Guts and Caska.
Anyway my favourite character is Griffith (I heard a rumble of “NOOOO” from here in ù_ù), but I also like Farnese, Shilke and Serpico.
At last, I don’t think that the manga got worse with the proceeding of the story, I only think that the author is trying to “dilute” the events (yep, actually that’s not good at all ù_ù) …And in this way he will never finish it
…But who cares!
(Damn, I care!)
I hope that with the release of the movie, Berserk will be rediscovered
