Holy fuck, the first episode was really, really good. I see this as my new AOTY contender.
I hope, i want them to straight up stop the Berserk one now. Call it a wash and start over its so god damn terrible. Adopt a stylr for it like Vinland Saga and the mature content writes itself. Stop doing this weird 3d crap.I imagine there's a lot of interest in both of those properties behind the scenes; there's been a huge resurgence in seinen anime adaptations recently. With Dorohedoro, Pluto and Vinland Saga all finally getting anime adaptations—and Blade of the Immortal and Akira getting reboots—I'd say nothing's off the table.
I just started the manga literally yesterday so I wouldnt mind its own thread generally as i watch and read bothWatched all three eps. Looks good so far, maybe a bit slow.
Getting a bit of a different vibe that I'll discuss in the manga thread. Also, is the "sk" in Askeladd really pronounced with an "sh" sound? The more you know.
Ya'll enjoy yourselves.
EDIT: Shit, there's no manga thread. Should I make one or would be okay if we discuss manga stuff here with tagged spoilers? Don't want it to end up like the Attack on Titan thread.
I honestly don't think there are enough manga readers on Era to make a VS manga OT worthwhile, I would suggest talking about it on the general manga OT, because I'd rather avoid any kind of spoiler here, just in case
Sanctuary for yakuza, Eden for 'guns'.Just a question because i cant make threads, can someone suggest a realistic manga in a sense with the darkness and maturity of berserk but with the Yakuza and or even guns so somewhat modern. I love the ones I am reading but also wouldnt mind something modern with modern tech compared to swords and stuff as well
To be clear, you mean Eden: It's an Endless World, correct? Don't want them picking up the wrong "Eden."
The mangaka wrote Planetes. So if you're familiar with that, then you have some idea of the style of storytelling.This is really good.
I went into it expecting a dumb, edgy action show about Vikings murdering the hell out of each other
Instead, I got
The direction and the visuals are also really good, and much better than I expected.A slow, low-key story about a man raising a family, trying to escape his war-filled past and having to face the fact that the latter is impossible. I'm not sure if this aversion to action and mindless killing will continue but the first three episodes were great.
I am unsure of the timeline of Vikings, but it does occur at the time of King Harald. I started Ep1 of Vinland Saga. It spoils what happens with King Harald in a flashback sequence.
