Berserk by danimation2001 Berserk by danimation2001
This is a little something that I did for Kizer's !!DRAW YOUR FAV CHARACTERs DOME!!! journal entry.

My favorite character at the moment is Guts from Berserk. This is such a great story and it's very compelling. The characters are well thought out and make you care whether they live or die. Very gory and quite sad. To be honest I'm not quite sure what to expect from this series as it is right now things look quite bad for the main character Guts who doesn't seem to have a chance against the powers that be(namely grifith)...

Plus there are a lot questions on why things happened the way they did. and what to expect once Casca, guts' love interest, regains her sane mind. Will it even happen, should it even happen? Considering what has transpired... It's very questionable.

Also this is the first story where I truly hate the villian of the story. I've never hated an evil villian character quite as much as I do Grifith. There's a lot of pondering as to his thoughts as well. Did he ever really love Casca? Was loving Casca something that would have betrayed his dream? Did he ever really consider Gats a friend? Etc etc.

I could go on...

Its good to see guts look sad. He usually acts so tough carrying all the burden of everything that happened.

There were actually times in the manga where he broke down quite a bit. Like during the beginning of the series where He was walking away at the end of the present storyline probably pondering the futility of what he's trying to do after confronting Grifith again and as well leaving the girl as she was with revenge on the brain, also when he talked with Casca about his past. Another one being when he rescued Grifith and still cared about what a mess he'd become.

But yeah, this was a somber sad mood, I mean this guy has a right to feel depressed a bit... Seriously.

i can't believe i forgot to add this to my favourites! and i saw it many times when i was scouring DA for berserk fanart :3. oh well better late then never XD

btw- i agree on your sentiment on Griffith to a certain extent. He is not one of the villains i hate though (i think the only characters i ever hated was sasuke from naruto, and light from deathnote). But I dislike griffith less because of watching the golden age arc again on the web. I loathed him completely the first time around though- giving it a second read may bring a different perspective of the story to ya! :)

Well I think my anger with the character was strong mainly because I watched the anime first, and thought the series ended so abruptly when everything was going wrong that I hated Grifith even more so because I really wanted the story to continue. So it probably just boiled over because of that. But of course I find out later that the story was indeed continuing, as I saw that the manga did indeed continued the story. But yeah I don't think anyone hated Grifith when the story was first starting out, maybe those that read the manga first sure. but watching the anime, Kinda hid what he had done way better then the manga. The manga illustrates their relation a bit more, and So I think it's much better to be in the dark about them both like the anime did.

Just my opinion on that, plus no puck.

to be honest - I almost forgot about puck hehe, at least while watching the anime i didn't mind since i knew that the anime would only focus on the golden age arc.
But i think you are right that people who read the manga first will more likely hate him: I am one of them.

It was just that after watching the anime I felt I understood him better as a person. Watching the show/reading the story becomes less of a drive to find out what happens next on the second time round. For me i got the chance to actually think more about the story and the characters. Anyways enough rambelling on my part.One of the reason i dislike Griffith less now is because it took me a while to realize how much griffith was at the center of the story and how much he influenced guts character in the positive way, not just the negative way.
