I figured it would look better than the first season after all this time they've taken and the technical improvements we saw in kabaneri (it might not have been good but there was obvious care and effort put into it visually). it doesn't look bad, just roughly as good as the first season.

except cgi colossal titan anyways, that thing looks kind of bad. not berserk 16-17 bad of course, but disappointing compared to what he looked like in the first season. when they used cgi before it was just for faraway shots of people on horses, which looked bad up close but they usually never were. the colossal is kind of a centerpiece to the show so I hope they only use the cg model for a few overly complicated scenes and he's traditionally animated when the scene focuses on him.

I'm expecting a decent adaption overall though. can't wait to see the utgard arc in motion.

>Berserk 2017 episodes 1 and 2
I knew they would fuck up the hill of swords fight but they really fucked it up wow. The rest wasn't any better, though the cgi (not the animation or camera work) seems to have improved slightly, might just be my imagination though. seems it's the mostly same predictably bad trainwreck it was last year. camera angles, sound effects, soundtrack, motion, acting, pacing, cut/rushed/altered material, it's all still shit. you also can really tell they're cramming almost entire volumes into episodes with no forethought.

the intro was the only part with a small amount of effort put in, it was at the level of a later naruto or dragon ball super episode, instead of a bargain vhs chinese knockoff of the donkey kong country cgi cartoon like usual.

I've heard a few people defend this shitshow's soundtrack. I have to wonder if these people are actually retarded or not. Not that the songs in themselves are outright terrible or anything, but goddamn they just make bad scenes (pretty much every scene) that much worse because they're just not used well, ever. That's one of the most important (if not the most important) things to do with a soundtrack. They may be fine songs in their own right but in this show they're only serving to add to how utterly cheap it feels.

We were all hoping 2017 Berserk would bring improvement. Hopefully now we're all just waiting for it to die a quick death. I fucking love Berserk and would love to see it represented and adapted more than it has been, but it just doesn't deserve this.

I'm still enjoying it although I never got into the manga so it's probably easier for me to overlook things. The CGI during fights is iffy but I'm more used to it than I was at the start.

read it and you will see why people dislike this show. Seriously, you're doing yourself a disservice by experiencing it that way. the comic even captures motion better than the show does, and fucking up motion itself is probably the worst sin an animation can commit.


these are the dark horse scans, don't fuck with the fan translations they're pretty bad.

You're doing everyone a disservice by being "that guy".

I just read through the the same chapters that covered the first episode of this current season and the fucking dialogue is verbatim the same thing. Hell even the pacing is the same. Does that mean you're main complaint and the thing that people like you won't shut up about is the difference in the art? WOW You mean a manga and an anime can look different!? SHOCKING!

If I hadn't already watched OG berserk a few years back all the dickheads like you I see online nowadays would have permanently soured me not just on the new anime but the entire franchise. I want to say the loudmouth crybaby neckbeards of the world are in the minority when it comes to the Berserk fandom but every youtube channel I go to there's an entire stack of fedoras foaming at the mouth about their perceived injustices and how a cartoon betrayed them. Fucking hell. It's not like the anime nullifies the fucking manga for godsake. If anything it made me want to delve deeper into the franchise, but now after seeing hundreds of shit flinging apes such as yourself who can't help themselves whenever they see a chance to feel superior to another person because they like comic books instead of cartoons it reminds me that it's impossible to genuinely like anything anymore and share it with people and that I should just keep my fucking mouth shut to avoid the maelstrom of professional steak eaters and frothy salt lords.

This marks the end of my angriest post on 420chan ever. I'm taking a break for a while. good day.

Was having a shit week/day. Needed the catharsis, i guess. You probably aren't a dick or a shit flinging ape.

I still think all the hate directed at Berserk 2016/2017 by the internet is unwarranted and overblown. I could debate the importance of the visual elements in a visually oriented medium for another six paragraphs but I already come off as a crazy person so I'm going to spare everyone that. I generally get pretty passionate and rail against bandwagons when I notice one even to the points of playing devils advocate for things that the apparent internet hivemind deems trash. Oh the arguments I've had over Dragon Ball Super...

that's totally alright. and someone has to be the devil's advocate for stuff like this. I will say I like the intro for berserk 17 at least. it fits the series and arc, and the song does too. I liked their song for the last season as well. honestly I loved that goofy ass song they used for berserk 97 too lol.

a lot of the animation problems there were mostly in the early episodes I hear. it seems they fixed a lot of it for the blurays and toonami airings.

there are a ton of series that only have ~25 episodes, start your search there. Too many for me to list, but MAL exists. Just check them out by amount of episodes or something

Don;t discount the shorter, ~12 episode animes though, because you can miss out on some real gems like Ping Pong. You could smash that out over a weekend and it would be a weekend very well spent

What was good in the winter season? Especially into anything mecha, anything that goes full meta (like Samurai Flamenco style), and any occult horror. Not generally into slice of life unless it's really good.

Also, are there any good anime with a Twin Peaks, "slowly uncover the horrible secrets of everyone in town while trying to solve a murder mystery" vibe?

Second ep was slightly better but still underwhelming and I didn't even expect much from it. I mean nothing strikes me as bad in particular but I already can tell how it is going from here. A very by the numbers show.

Now Bahamut 2 on the other hand is very solid and my favorite show this season. In terms of animation quality it's almost as good as the first series but direction and design make up for it. You can really see that mobage money being poured in. Everything is handled so well in this show even things like fanservice or exposition. A very well handled sequel and I'm excited to see what they do with 24 episodes this time.

dubs are always sub-par. a dub might be 'good', certainly, but it's always not as good as the original. Cowboy Bebop? Yeah, 100% it has a good dub. Even I, the subs cunt, can listen to it and not cringe. The subs are still better though. 99% of the time, dubs are terrible. But even for the 1% of good dubs, subs are better.

Sheeeiiit nigga even with Space Dandy, I still prefer the japanese. It's so odd. I feel like SD should have gone either way for me but my bias still holds. And with english cartoons, I still prefer the original language. It's definitely not just me being a 'nippon superior' weeaboo. Dubs are just plain inferior, no matter what way it's coming from.

I mentioned funmation being quick with their dubs then was replied to about how it isn't hard to be quick when you don't care about quality. So it seems we were talking about dubs from the beginning.

>I meant the quality of the subtitles available on streaming websites

I've rarely had issues with subtitles, think the most recent issues was when DBS started. Those subtitles were horrible. Otherwise I don't mind small mistakes every so often if it means I get to watch anime as they come out the same day.
