the hirasawa 2016/2017 anime music was a little weird. not by hirasawa standards, but you'd have this fully orchestrated ost cut into the guts theme or something which was all midi

The 16/17 series also borrowed a lot of themes from the Studio 4c films which I thought had pretty good soundtracks, even if they were a bit generic

He only did 2 songs, Hai Yo and Ash Crow. The rest was by the composer from the movie.

The chorus to this is just... its so perfect

Robbed of a mothers love at birth
(Left to drown in blood)
He was to die beneath her corpse.
Meant to rot in a cesspit of despair,
Born to die as a waste of air.


The singing is really good too.

Those songs are loving RAD and perfectly fit the Berserk mood

I dunno i find them hilariously overdone. Maybe it works better for Japanese viewers who can’t understand the lyrics.

Hirasawa is nice cause most of his songs don’t have lyrics, the ones that do are in Japanese or in a nonsense language of his invention.

I feel like this doesn't preclude some sort of legit announcement happening at the thing, tbf.

Like, if they're putting up a whole rear end statue of Zodd and Miura's gonna be there, that indicates something's happening, I don't think they'd just put up a random Zodd statue somewhere for shits and giggles.

The statue of any character is an odd choice, but I'll let it slide if they give Zodd a great pose.

So the Zodd statue is being crowdfunded. If you live in Japan and have a Japanese credit card you can donate and rewards include original artwork from the manga.

Well its nice to have a confirmation of something everyone suspected for a long time.

Though I now wonder
Did Geiseric kill those four god hands in a death rage? Or is the nature of the god hand something different and void is hiding something?

I'm betting on Skully murdered previous God Hand members showing that they can be destroyed but something something cycles and destiny - they'll be replenished or replaced overtime and never truly gone forever.

SKULL KNIGHT FLASHBACK. SKULL KNIGHT FLASHBACK!!!

The reveal of the four other Godhand members explains some things quite nicely. When the Band of the Hawk went to rescue Griffith, there was a legend told about a "mad monk", who called upon "four angels" to tear down Gaiseric's empire. It's strongly implied that this monk was Void, so how could there possibly have been four members of the Godhand already? My first impression was that the Godhand somehow exist outside of time, at least when Griffith hadn't regained his body yet, so Femto had also been present for the coronation of every other Godhand member. But this flashback paints quite a different story.

Godhand members can be replaced! Either Void somehow got rid of the other four, making him the oldest and, presumably, most powerful among the Godhand, or someone - like Skull Knight - actually managed to kill them. This is extremely significant. This could point to the method of attacking/hurting them.


Oh boy

The only thing that would make me think Skull Knight didn't kill the other Godhands is how badly he hosed up trying to kill Femto/Griffith.
