I noticed Caska was downplayed in the movie. There wasn't even a mention that she was the top fighter next to Griffith before Guts, and I don't think people who didn't watch the previous anime or read the manga could get that from just the movie.
She wasn't second to Griffith only but second in command, that's a huge difference. Both Judeau and Pippin could easily kill her (especially the former).
Movie II comes out today/tomorrow depending on your timezone.
Tough, most people won't be able to see it until the DVD/BD come out. There's bound to be some comments from people who saw it coming out around the Internet soon.
I love how everyone re-uses the ancient Age of Empires II swordfight sounds.
Oh man... is it too far fetched for me to hope they just deleted some scenes and will release a "director's cut" bluray of some sort?
I have mixed emotions about this because I suppose I was expecting it to have parts of the story the anime left out... not cut out more parts.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed watching it and will tell my friends. But damn, there's really no character development between the Hawks. We saw more of Julius and his son than Judeau, Pippin & Rickert... speaking of Rickert, did they even introduce him? I mean, I know I saw him once or twice, but did they introduce him? That whole "we accept you into the band of the hawks" scene is really important, more important than I realized prior to watching this movie.
I honestly don't think them cutting out Guts and Griffith having a naked water fight as that big of a loss. It is character development for Guts but we get that they are friends so I'm okay with it.
I guess I'll delude myself into hoping they release an extended/director's cut bluray with deleted scenes that they cut out to make it an acceptable length for theaters.
The CGI wasn't as terrible as I feared. I guess they cleaned it up a bit or something because it definitely didn't bug me as much as I thought it would when I saw the youtube 10 min preview prior to its release. Animation is beautiful as well. Just that damn missing scene!
Finally watched it.
It's a great movie, really.
Sure, there are some stuff that were not included, and I do hope that we see more of the guys in the Band of the Hawk in the next movie.
Otherwise, the ending will have much less impact.
And the CGI didn't bother as much as I thought it would.
Only a few time I actually noticed that it was bad.
And I don't get the feeling that Caska was downplayed, like many have said.
She was basically always there, and had pretty much the same airtime than Guts and Griffith.
I seriously cannot wait till the trailer for movie 3 comes out! I feel like I'll come buckets XD ...Like if the trailer includes Skull Knight and Wylad I will go crazy lol.
I wonder when movie 2 will be released on dvd? Maybe October?
all this talk about skully and wyald
anyone else wanna see silat and the bakiraka
Yeah I would like to see them too but I doubt knowing how they cut stuff in movie one that they will include the Bakiraka. Unless its a quick fast scene. I'm pretty sure they'll show Silat.
I think non-manga readers would agree that the movie was bad, i was hoping for more and the next minute i know its over. I was like "really!?!?!?" Though the movie got me reading Berserk though.
Well wait till movie 3 comes out, I think that will change your mind lol.

Well my boyfriend watched the movie without any clue about the manga and he really enjoyed it. Excited about the next movie, even.
