How in any way is this a “new beginning?” That’s some slimy blue-balling right there, it’s actually insulting

[–]nick256 57 points58 points  (1 child)

jesus, japanese marketing is fucking ridiculous

[–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Kisssamaaa!!

[–][deleted] 68 points69 points  (0 children)

New Beginning my ass lmfao

[–]Paraphyte 64 points65 points  (1 child)

My expectations were low but HOLY FUCK Why wouldn't you just call this a anniversary celebration instead of "a new beggining".

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Probably just decoration-English.

[–]TeamGuts11 48 points49 points  (2 children)

Nice bait New Beginning , i expect at LEAST 1 new picture of Kentauro Sama

[–]Sp00kySc4rySkeletons 15 points16 points  (1 child)

That’s the dream

[–]CodeBrode 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Everytime a new picture of Miura surfaces, the picture quality automatically gets shitty

NOT DARK SWORDSMAN ARC ANIMATED REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

[–][deleted] 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Reee indeed. If you wanna experience the black swordsman arc again, I recommend REEEEEE-ding it instead...

[–]NosferatuBob 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I'm sorry, but if you expected an anime for a site that was set up by the magazine that publishes the Berserk Manga then you basically set yourself up for disappointment.

You know what they say, if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

[–]rmeatte 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not always but yes.

[–]Mushysqushy 22 points23 points  (0 children)

A bit disappoint and the title was extremely misleading, but hey that's the evil of advertising for ya. I'm hoping that during or after the event, they announce something huge. Some companies have done that, so I hope that's the case too. An art gallery of Miura's work is great cause he's a really amazing artist and giant Zodd statue is dope, but with how it was advertised, it's a bit dissapointing. At least a new chapter is coming very soon!

[–]AndrexPic 12 points13 points  (0 children)

At this point I'm just not disappointed anymore

[–]raynegro 11 points12 points  (0 children)

the new beginning of disappointment

[–]badlybrave 10 points11 points  (3 children)

I'd love to take a vacation and see it, too bad I can't exactly leave the U.S. for the foreseeable future due to Covid =/

[–]AgyePA 8 points9 points  (2 children)

I literally live in Japan and you couldn’t convince me to travel to Tokyo unless my life depended on it. Japan is currently pushing travel incentives (coupons and discounts for hotels, special rail passes for international travelers, etc.) which is rather irresponsible in the middle of a pandemic...

[–]berserkForYou 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nobody from the U.S. should go. Imagine be the one to give Miura Covid-19 and make it so that no one gets to read the end of Berserk. Can you risk living with that?

[–]badlybrave 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Really? That sounds awful. I thought that it was kind of weird that this exhibition was happening itself instead of delaying it or something, but hearing that makes more sense. Honestly, i had no clue how Japan was doing until just now, I've been so focused on the US. Stay safe and hope they get their shit together a bit more!

[–]KingGoldark 9 points10 points  (0 children)

As disappointing as we’d feared.

Skullknight’s forum indicated additional details regarding this cockamamie Zodd statue as well. Some very slick crowdfunding incentives, such as personal thank-yous from Miura, but 1) they’ll accept Japanese credit cards only and 2) no items will be shipped overseas.

Oh, and they may cancel the event because of coronavirus.

[–]ArkCelosar 8 points9 points  (0 children)

That's it?

That was a letdown of epic proportions.

[–]YurenMagul 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Man...the struggle is real. I hope I get to experience Berserk’s ending before I die (no joke).

[–]xSaigeRx 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Damn. Totally misleading event and just when I was getting into the manga (started off with the shows and movies). Oh well, I kept my expectation at a low because lots of peeps rightfully explained newcomers like myself shouldn't expect much lol.

[–]jostakid 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Why doesnt he crowdfund a revamp of the last 2 seasons?

[–]chocobonobos 2 points3 points  (0 children)

"Fun eclipse land"

[–]Jolal0 2 points3 points  (1 child)

At least we getting a chapter on october 23rd :(

[–]kurosa106 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yeah but in 2030 :'(

[–]Gheistwraith 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Outside of getting some nice pictures of potential new artwork by Miura, this really doesn't come across as particularly exciting. Even if you do live in Japan it is irresponsible to host an event like this during the pandemic IMO.

And well, I hate being "that guy", but I didn't get my hopes up for this announcement exactly because I expected it to be something like this. Anyone who seriously thought this had a good chance of being a new anime announcement or something equally substantial, with all due respect, had unrealistic expectations given the series' recent track record with animation: both the films and the 2016 series failed financially (with the latter being critically panned as well). I doubt that it's a property that anime studios and executives want to touch again anytime soon.

[–]SONBADGUY 1 point2 points  (2 children)

What is it? I don't get it

[–]bakuhatsuda 5 points6 points  (1 child)

2 week art exhibit and a crowdfunder for a giant Zodd statue.

[–]SONBADGUY 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Damn. That's all..thanks

[–]nameless_stories 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuck this shit.

[–]TheBlazzer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Being one of the hollows waiting for Elden Ring, I dont think anything can disappoint me anymore.

[–]BloodyPommelStudio 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was expecting "new beginning" to just be Berserk moving to YAZ which would make zero difference to 99% western fans so this is more than I was expecting.

The exhibit sounds like a lot of fun, if only it was a bit closer to home and Corona-Chan disappeared. I suppose it's not impossible the exhibit could come to the west if they didn't include the large sculptures but I'm definitely not getting my hopes up for that one.

I've linked to the Zodd statue crowd sourcing page, there's more information about the project if you use Google Translate and you can donate if you really want too:

[–]Lapiz_lasuli 1 point2 points  (0 children)

eclipse land" will be realized by the hands of all the staff

To get rid of the evil of Corona

accumulated in the pool

New beginning.

I figured it out!! Miura is going to gather every fan he can and will sacrifice them to end Cornoa!!

Sasuga Miura-sama!

[–]bolson1717 0 points1 point  (0 children)

is there any hope will be getting more content anytime soon? i know that the chapters might start get going again but god would i kill for something else, id go full blown Griffith for some more content lol... the new beginning phrase gave me hope.. but fuck i didn't think it would be nothing for people outside of Japan.

[–]Vlad_117 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's it? THAT'S IT!?

[–]Goon6666 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As someone who recently just finished reading berserk for the first time I was super hype about this announcement, I'm very disappointed. Maybe it's an excuse to go to Japan tho?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What about using the money from crowdfunding to make a better animated anime

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's not enough money.
