One of the first things that got me hooked on berserk (before I saw how good the story was)
This is what got me hooked:
The first page of the manga :X.
Both those moments were unbelievable...this manga has certain panels that just leave U without any reaction, just OMG, is this really happening...I'm gonna make a thread of this
Question is easy, and I'm using hooked, which some fellow members used...so post memorable scenes, which remained deeply engraved in your mind, and inspired U to read further. Knock URselves out!
This is mine:
Whenever I see a giant sword like that, I wonder how the hell is he able to wield it, so I read further. Also that very detailed cut was something that I really missed from the mangas I was reading, when I started Berserk, so this is a memorable page for me

Now that's what i call, "busting a nut..." lol. I couldn't resist.
Im more of a dramatic pwnage slide kind of guy. This is more like the one that sold me...
-->Anyone else considering rereading the whole series in the interim?
And guess where i am up too?
You know reading back, makes me love the couple of guts and caska.
But i feel so bad for griffith how his dream is taken away, i just want to see him and guts at the end hug each other and cry and scream I LOVE YOU!! (guts says i love you!! not in a gay way though) But the volume im up to know makes me hate griffith and want to see in the end guts shooting heaps of bows in his face and killing him 9000x overkill. But the god hand kinda of trick/brainwashed griffith to turn evil, but he had nothing left BUT still its unforgiveable of what he did!!!
epic moments hey?
how about this one?

Darkhorse trans is like "don't be swingin that filthy thing over my head"
I <3 Guts
The porn term is: "Money Shot!"
Well Griffith is one of the reasons I love this manga so much. He is such a dynamic bad guy. I mean his character is deep and developed and not bland like in Shonens. Miura really made you feel for him when Guts left the hawks.

Who could ever forget. By the time I got to that page, I was already deeply in love with Berserk, Guts, and his gigantic, manly sword. Oh, and the Dragonslayer too.
Since we are at it, I'll also remember with you guys, my most shocking moments, and thinks that left a strong impact on me, Not really my favorites if you ask me, since pretty much everything in berserk it's by itself my favorite, but just what i remember now.
How can you forget the creppy priest and torture room
Just a little pages i remember, by browsing
Just as an 'IF".
What would you guys think if guts dies?, I forgot where I read that Legends don't die just because the protagonist does, but guts it's berserk,
What you thinks think it would make up for him dying?
FYI If you haven't played/beaten/want to beat/play Red Dead Redemption then stop reading...
Anyways, in RDR you play through the whole game as a father trying to save his family. You finally save your family and get shot down by like a million guys who originally took them from you. I personally didn't like the ending because they just copy and pasted your son as you like twenty years later via a time skip. Guts has no real substitute or surrogate. If he dies the story ends... I think that this is a possible outcome for the very last chapters but that it would make the series a little less epic in my opinion. For instance Guts has lived through a million unlikely encounters, battles, wars, and always come out the victor or at least intact enough to fight later. Do I think Miura will kill guts? I think that if we wish to answer that question we should really consider the words, "he was born from death and has always been close to it". (something along those lines) -->This has been a common theme throughout Berserk and at first to me at least, was a mantra to make guts look more badass. However I think that it will have a large significance in relation to the final outcome to Berserk. Does this mean that Guts will die? There's a good chance of that happening but like I said it's really upsetting to the reader/player to do a redonk amount of work reading the series/playing through a game for your character to just keel over and die. Do I think that Miura will kill Guts before he has offed the God hand including Griffith? no. I think that Guts is the only one capable of such a feat. and that SK(although looking like he knows whats up, really doesn't have a viable plan for the destruction of the god hand). So until Caska pops another guts out of her oven I think we're stuck with our current main character till the end of the manga IMO.
Merged posts from the 312 thread to this one. The posts are out of order, benelori's post should be the first. I screwed that up during the merging, but you guys get the gist
Every few pages a new panel comes up increasing my esteem for Berserk. Actually I'm quite new to it and far from the current state (Just started volume 10) but it's hard to tell which one really hooked me to it... I guess the moment it started to become a true favorite of mine was in the beginning of Band of the Hawk-flashback (which still isn't finished at the point I'm at right now).
The moment I actually noticed that might've been this one:
I can't really tell why... I just love interesting character backgrounds, and Gatt's definitly is incredibly great
As above, the one where he slices the guy in half. And pretty much every chapter over the past year has proved to me Muira is unequalled as an manga artist.
I'm at work right now and can't post specific links, but I would say I was hooked after the first chapter, like many here. I was previously a mostly shounen reader and the up-front brutality and in-your-face horror/dark fantasy drew me in immediately. When he takes the offer of the lift from the man and girl in the cart after warning them, and then seeing them absolutely massacred by the skeleton army...that was powerful stuff and I can say i honestly felt distraught for Gatts, having this responsibility and guilt on him at all times.
(forgive my lack of chapter/page references but i'm sure you all know the moment i'm referring to)
What a brilliant story, I'm going back to read it all again now!
