Not gonna like it's kinda great watching Skull Knight awkwardly bro around with Guts for a change instead of just vanishing after three words.

Anyway my guess is that after confronting his inner demons via the armor he's going to do something colossally stupid like try to abandon the rest of the party because "I'm just a burden to Casca living a normal life" and "GRIFITH".

So, Harvey, what became of the giant penny?

They actually let him keep it.

Every time I read some Berserk, it takes me days not to see the brand in the bluetooth symbol.

That was a pretty good chapter! I guess it's pretty much confirmed that the Skull Knight is King Gaiseric.

Was it not canon already? Or at least very heavily implied?

IIRC there's a bit in Golden Age where the princess goes on about the ancient history of Midland and its heavily implied but not outright stated that Skully and Gaiseric are one and the same but aside from a few bits of trivia about the Gaiseric era I don't think there's been anything as blatant as this since then.

I also recall that it's never been spelled out before, just everyone who would know going "Hmm... well it sure looks like that one former king of that vanished kingdom, yessiree, mmhmm."

Isn't Void, God Hand with the cape and exposed brain, implied to have been his right hand man.

I don't think that has ever been implied, but Void undoubtedly has a connection to King Gaiseric considering the branded skeletons below the Tower of Rebirth.

The only God Hand member whose history is explicitly known to us would be Femto.

It's heavily implied that he was a heretical religious figure who so wanted to end the empire of Gaiseric that he became a member of the God Hand.

I rewatched Berserk 2016 after only seeing the episodes as they came out 4 years ago and... I don't remember it being this inoffensive, quality-wise? It was a while ago so maybe my memory is muddled but I remember being just fuckin appalled at the quality, but this seemed more or less fine aside from just generally being cgi.

Specifically I remember the big red blobs coming out of the tower of conviction looking stupid as hell and having big dumb dopey noses, but I didn't see any of that. Am I going crazy? Did they touch up the eps before they released em proper or something?

You might have watched the version that had blu-ray fixes. I heard there was some. Personally I only remember one episode from the second cour that looked decent, like it could have come from Polygon or some other half decent cg anime studio.

Lmao can you imagine how people would react to him rebooting Berserk?

e: It certainly looks like it's at least some sort of re-release.

I would be fine with a retread of the golden age if they committed to adapting the stuff after it. A full run through from black swordsman to present material.

It seems as if theres less and less adaptions of manga these days. Light novel adaptions are everywhere and old series like Shaman King are getting full reboots, but It seems as if manga takes a smaller share of the pile every season.
