i have not read the anime so i cant help you on the first part but as far as how the behelit works i can explain it to you but trust me you will enjoy it much more if you read the manga because the visuals are stunning
also the anime is not complete since the manga is ongoing because of that they decided to end the anime early and they removed a lot of elements that are present in the manga
my suggestion is read the manga it would answer many of your questions. sure there are side effects to that like you become addicted to berserk and you have more questions but its worth it
sorry if i have not answered your questions directly but trust me read the manga its a master piece
I def will read the manga and I can't wait too. Im still confused why in the anime Griffith wanted Guts to stay away from him moments before the eclipse happened.
cause of you this quote i started reading vinland saga... you see i am a fan of berserk and i hate waiting for it...so i though i will read vinland, i actually like reading vinland saga. its nothing like berserk.. beserk is in different level but vinland does reminds me of berserk.. especially the golden arc. see berserk is not for weak heart people.. its mature for a reason... many of my friend couldnt read berserk.. they find it lil too disturbing... so if you gona read berserk keeping vinland in your head you might not appreciate the details of berserk... so dont compare... both are good in their places.. berserk is just legendary :P
Quick question, recently finished reading all the current Berserk manga.
Has Gutts ever told anyone in his current group exactly what happened to him and Casca? Do they know exactly who and what Griffith IS now? I mean we know Farnese has no idea why Casca is currently in the state she is in but how about Schierke? does she have even a clue about whats going on? I mean I imagine Flora must have gotten wind of the Eclipse and the events that followed due to her connections with Skull Knight so she could have told her but...eh who knows.
I mean clearly they all understand the need to kill emisaries etc but for instance I imagine they all got a little confused when Gutts fourght with Zod and then had a polite chat with him afterwards.
I think that is one thing I would truly like to read, Gutts sitting down and telling everyone exactly what happened.....then again maybe he just doesn't trust them enough yet, wouldn't be unlike him, or the more likely idea that he just can't face talking about it.
One of the things after reading that really has me quite literely worried is the idea of what will happen to Casca if/when she is "healed", will she regain her memories and love for Gutts? will she be driven completely insane when she is faced with actualy dealing with the events of the Eclipse? Will she regain her sanity but retain her hatred for Gutts?
I think anything but option 1 would kill me.
Oh another qusetion, the myserious child on the beach, are there any theories around who/what he (I assume it was a boy?) is? The only idea i've had is that it was either simply a random kid (seems unlikely) or that it was in fact the true form of Gutts and Casca's son, some kind of remnant that came about when Griffith was reborn....and then there is the idea that it is the soul of the child and has now become a demon, which would suck.
Anyway, amazing story, absolutely love it.
as far as the others are concerned they dont know about guts past and frankly i dont think they care too much about it apart from the witch who was advised by her sensai to observe guts cause he was a very intriguing person.
ishidoro only wants to learn how to fight and thats why he is following guts while farnese wants to change herself completely and till now guts is the only person who has shown her the courage that she was desperately trying to find
nonetheless during the course of their travels all of them inspite of having ulterior motives have come closer as companions so i am sure one day they would find out abouts guts past but i dont think guts would tell them . he does not seem that kind of a person. if anything there is a good chance that rickett would tell them abouts guts past.
the child on the beach is very likely to be guts and caska and griffith/femto's child. basically during eclipse caska was pregnant and then she got raped by femto which resulted in premature birth of a mutated child
during the conviction arc the emperor's egg took the almost dead child in itself which probably resulted in the child being given the form that we currently see (<--speculation)
the child seems to have a feeling of oneness with caska and even tough it feels some resentment towards guts it nonetheless feels curiosity towards him as they are related.
it remains to be seen how much of a demon it has become and whether it would retain both the characteristics of human and demon or whether one of the characteristics would dominate
Yeah, I don't take Gutts as the kind to really want to explain his past to people, I mean I could be wrong but I think he wants as little to do with as possible outside of getting Casca back to her old self and ripping Griffith limb from limb.
Completely forgot about Puck, bloody annoying little critter that he is, I wonder how much he really knows or has at least speculated, he has kinda been pushed into obscurity and comic relief, or at least more so than he used to be.
Luckily though I imagine these things will be explained, luckily due to Miura being a very good writer what there is to speculate on is never particularly outlandish and logicaly there are only a certain amount of possibilities.
Can't wait for the next chapter.
I recently made the mistake of reading all the Berserk recently, just to find out after I did that the Mangaka is very flighty and unreliable to continue the manga. Now I know this may not be TRUE but it seems like he has a reoccurring problem...
"Berserk mangaka Kentaro Miura has given up manga in order to become a full-time Nico-maniac, with his days spent watching Idolmaster MADs and typing in insightful strings of “www”.
Lately he has even taken to interfering with the work of uninfected mangaka, attempting to turn them by way of classes held at his home.
His long-time friend and fellow mangaka Kouji Mori (who recently completed his long-running “Holy Land” manga and so is especially vulnerable) reports being subjected to just such an attempt, a two hour course on the secrets of NicoNico Idolmaster videos.
Fans are exasperatedly asking that Miura return to completing his magnum opus, though his symptoms do not appear to be in remission…"
this was quoted from a website that I found when searching for any answers to if he would return to the manga. I won't post a link to the site I found this on (due to some Hentai related pictures that are shown on the site...)
but I can tell you if you want to find it, google "why does Kentaro Miura take so many breaks?" the site has numerous stories about his "problem"...
but I can post the Japanese site that states it

Read HERE. Hopefully that will shed some light on what you've been reading.
^ I had a feeling I should of known better...
Thanks for clearing that up for me. I guess this is what I get when I stay up too late lurking through the internets.
the idolmaster thing is just a joke that the fans made up to explain the releases (or lack of)
well I had heard before that the releases were kind of hit and miss before reading the entire manga series during a weekend... so I came here to read comments from you guys and could not really see a reason for this release issue.
so I googled it and that was the most returned story on why he does not release the manga on time.
next time I will just PM someone before posting things in my hazing sleepless state!
HAHAHA i actually lol'd when i read that, idolmaster and strings of " www "
HAHAHAH xD you have to be hardcore to understand the sarcasm behind that xD!
