I liked it very much.
The only part I didn't like was the beginning of the love scene between Griffith and the princess.
When he first touch her breast and she moan sharply... that was really bad...
I felt like I was watching a really bad hentai movie from 10 years ago...
No girl reacts like that in real life
It was brilliant.
Now for the Eclipse.
I love how all he was thinking of was Guts, it would be funny in the subs if he said Guts breast are bigger.
Yeah it was a good movie but did skip alot of important scenes like about Griffiths past, Zodd and the queen. But it went for a hour and 30 minutes so its long.
I feel so sad that they will obviously skip Wyald fight, it was what I was looking forward to the most in these movies, finally get to see that awesome fight animated.
But I bet they'll skip it
Story-wise it was the same as the first movie, they skipped a lot. The story in the movie is rather shallow and I feel like people who've only seen the movie will like it a lot less than we do. I'm not surprised that the two movies aren't rated that high, someone who only watches the movies is bound to notice the rather weak story and characters. I mean it's still Berserk so it's not that bad but compared to the original it#s lacking so much
Which brings me to say that the movies are pretty good for people like us, who know the manga. It's not really something for movie-only watchers because they won't be able to grasp the full awesomeness that is Berserk, sadly.
But I guess if you only watched the movies, you are not a Berserk fan. So it doesn't really matter if you don't like the story.
The movies target was Berserk fans. that means a number of people accumulated during the 20 years of work Miura put in Berserk. And I assure you, every one of them loved those movies. Because they can relate to every single moment in them and complete the rest of the story from their experience with the manga.
I'll have to wait for my boyfriend's reaction to the second movie- since he's never read the manga. But he really liked the first movie, as I mentioned in an earlier discussion. So you can try asking friends who never read the story and see what they thought of the movie.

do you guys have any news as to which groups have taken up subbing the second BD release? So far I've only seen two subbed versions, and not too convinced of the quality...
Personally I'm fine if some parts are skipped in the movie version, since.. well this is an animation, changes are mostly inevitable. At least they're not forgetting most of important parts, so the movie is still coherent with the original plot as shown in the manga.
Also, have to agree that the voice acting during that sex scene was pretty bad.
this one before making any decision to download it.
Hopefully in the third film of the "Golden Age Arc", Guts and crew will fight the Demon Dogs before the eclipse thing happens. Would be nice to see that battle, Miura did an amazing job illustrating that in the manga.
Yeah they got special people for animated sex scene voice acting in Japan don't they?
I really wish, I could be in Japan for the day that movie opens next month. sucks.
