Random thought/rant: When Guts came across those wheel-type enemies, a singular rage started to burn within me at the very sight of them. I am sure someone has made this connection before, but it makes it no less infuriating.

Huh? What? Why?
 

The God of the World is neither good nor evil. It is simply a being that humans willed to exist to grant their wishes. The problem is that the world being full of despair humans for the most part actually wish for a release from it [...]

And that’s exactly the weakest part of the series for me.

If the god in this series really was created according to the wishes of humans then wouldn’t he take the form of a benevolent one? I mean that’s what he is according to their religion anyway, so why isn’t their god exactly that in reality?
What they wish for is not some passive, heart-shaped blob sitting at the center of a Styx-like maelstrom of the dead but rather a loving entity that relieves them all of their suffering instead of just sitting by. It makes no sense for this god to look like that if it was actually created by mankind’s wishes.
I don’t think the mangaka really thought this one through.
 

Thing is... I'm not sure the dude is evil.
I mean, he had been good. Then shits happen to him. Only then did he commit the one evil act [...]

Huh, Griffith was good until the Eclipse? Have you even read anything of this manga before that arc? Of course he was already evil before that! Griffith has been one ruthless motherfucker from the start. He even himself acknowledge that much, walking on a pile of corpses he created just to fulfill his selfish wish of a kingship. I’m not just talking about him as a cold-blooded military commander but also about all the assassinations he ordered.

Griffith is building a utopia but he's suppose to be the bad guy here. Something tells me there's some kind of dark secret or conspiracy behind all this, things can't end well for the people of this utopia.

Falconia is a false utopia, because it exists on the back of the misery of the rest of the world now riddled with monsters. What if you don't want to worship at the foot of Falconia? Then you are an outcast. Dissent will grow when some people realize they aren't free but subjects at the whim of the Hawk. 

 

A world like that is not a just world. It's just as bad as the world shown in Elysium.

 

Griffith as a god hand is technically neutral because he is following the subconscious desires of man, but that does not make him (the man who became the god hand) innocent. His fatal flaw is a chink in his armor--he fell once already when he took Charlotte and got caught. He then took Casca when he didn't need to, showing that he has the fatal flaw of pride. What happened before will happen again...

What's next, a Hunter x Hunter chapter ?

How did you know ? :o

Another possibility:

 

Maybe Griffith is actually trying to do "good" while realizing his dream with the powers he has, maybe the other god-hands will go against him and we will en up seeing a final battle between the god-hand with their apostles on one side and Griffith, the apostles loyal to him and humans including Guts on the other.

 

Unlikely but perhaps possible.

Thing is... I'm not sure the dude is evil.

I mean, he had been good. Then shits happen to him. Only then did he commit the one evil act that is kill all his friends in exchange for power then wreck the lives of the two who survived. There has not been any mentioning in the story that he is actually evil or anything. Well, I guess there is the witch hunt :P

Not to mention, the "god" thingee said that everything was planned by him, the dude didn't have much to say in what he becomes :D

 

The God of the World is neither good nor evil. It is simply a being that humans willed to exist to grant their wishes. The problem is that the world being full of despair humans for the most part actually wish for a release from it (which the Sacrifice is, in its own perverted way). "God" isn't evil - just misunderstood - because it's just granting exactly what humans desire. In the past the Sacrifice had been in the form of hell opening up and swallowing the victims. What Griffith is offering is HEAVEN opening up for the victims instead. The end result will still be the same, but the humans now walk willingly towards their end. Whether that is good or evil it's hard to judge. I think Griffith is creating a giant suicide cult. People now believe there's a heaven on the other side, so when the gaping maw of "God" opens up again, they won't run away screaming like all the other times. He's helping them realize that this is what THEY want, so they have no right to change their minds at the last second. 

I feel dirty. Which is a drop in the bucket to the soul wrenching despair those sheeple are going to feel when they find out Griffith's true nature. God my black ass.

I think the future of this series is pretty obvious. They are gonna hype up Griffith for a while and make him look like his shit dont stink and then of course little by little people will start to see the facade and Gutz will fuck up Griffith and fully expose his evil deeds... Of course there will probably be some rapes, massacres, boobs, and some husky beast fights along the way!

Griffith has the most punch-worthy face in manga.

Kentaro Muria: "I start working at 2:00 PM and I finish at 7:00 AM. I work 15-16 hours everyday, without holidays." I wonder what he does in his spare time.

Play Idolmaster, obviously

Griffith reminds me of Michael Jackson.. I mean he has raped someone before... and he does look like a chik.. hmmm

Don't believe everything you read.. If Kentaro was truly working 16-hour days, Berserk wouldnt have 1-year long breaks every other year and release a chapter every few months.. If he really is working 16 hours a day, it obviously hasnt been on Berserk lol.

They are still on the boat

All that holy power it's in reality the most evil thing that people had ever seen.

 

It's going to be funny when they can understand that if they ever able to do that ofc.

Well the devil has always been more generous than god.

Heh all these years

And all he has to say is that scenes of spectacle take time.

Nice one Miyura

Kentaro Muria: "I start working at 2:00 PM and I finish at 7:00 AM. I work 15-16 hours everyday, without holidays." I wonder what he does in his spare time.

Sleep?  8 hours seems pretty damn good.  Course he could also spend an hour playing games and have a half hour for dinner.  Which gives him about 6 hand a half hours of sleep.  Which is also pretty good.  Unless I'm doing math wrong.

 

The life of a mangaka is not very glamorous.  But the fact that many put up with it to bring their worlds to live showcases a lot of love for their craft. 

I don't see why you guys all imagine the city is going to turn to Sacrifice Bowl.

 

Guts has already had his lifelong wish satisfied, he turned into a god, he became the ruler of all, humans, beasts and spirits.

 

Remember, sacrifices are made because one's burning with a feverish desire for something unattainable. Does Griffith wish for more ?

Er,, I think you meant Griffith there, Guts is no god, he is just a badass human, but one who makes gods look like wusses.

(updated, I had written Gutts instead of Griffith. My bad)

its kinda annoying grifith gets all the power ups the autor will need to give guts a super power up

to match grifith the armor is good but its still not close too beat him.

 

btw i wonder if the autor plans to finish this manga it takes him so long to relese chapters and the story is going nowhere

grifith gets more power guts gets beaten down repeat.

When is that city going to be razed to the ground and the castle walls torn down? I wanna see that happen! Author, make it happen.

So glad this manga is continuing!
