Berserk Episode 24
The story follows Guts as the "Black Swordsman", an appearance which was briefly seen in the first episode of the 1997 television series as well as in the final scene of the Golden Age Arc films.
A new Berserk anime was announced in December 2015 in Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine, with a short preview trailer released at Comiket later the same month. The anime's website announced in February 2016 that the project would be a television series. A second trailer was streamed in March 2016. A teaser video was streamed on the series' website in early June 2016. At the conclusion of the first season's final episode, a teaser confirmed a second season for April 2017. The brief clip showed off the character Schierke and the Berserker armor, indicating the second season would adapt the next arc, "Hawk of the Millennium Empire".
The first 12-episode season premiered on 1 July 2016 on Wowow, and later on MBS's Animeism programming block, TBS, CBC, and BS-TBS. The second season of the series began airing on April 7, 2017, with an hour-long two episode premiere.
IGN contributor Meghan Sullivan gave the opening episode a score of 8.5 out of a possible 10. In the review Sullivan praised the episodes' direction, stating "despite the somewhat distracting visuals, 'The Branded Swordsman' gets Guts' quest for vengeance off to a strong start".
Writer Cecilia D'Anastasio applauded the opening episode in a review published by Kotaku, going so far as to state that it "already outshines the 90's original". Though, noting the series' sub-par animation quality, D'Anastasio concluded, "Berserk is not for the faint-hearted. But 'The Branded Swordsman' proved to me that directors of fighting-heavy anime are making more of an effort to beautify and civilize the genre, doing justice to manga that showcases writing and ingenuity."
The drafts include indications of their early production, contradicting central plot elements as early as Episode 15. Some elements thought up by Satsukawa for these drafts, such as Shinji's cello playing, were moved to other episodes he worked on.Anno explains how elements present here went against his ideas, to a larger degree than other rejected proposals. The public bath scene was made more casual to reflect it as the open social occurrence it is in his native countryside. Many of the plot points here caused backlash from Anno and staff for straying so much from early ideas, with staff expressing surprise at interpretations. Additionally, some details were even missed due to the late production time constraints, such as Kaworu not being supposed to touch Shinji's hand. Character designer Sadamoto later noted how Satsukawa diverged from the original outline as a little boy possessed by a cat, the actual Angel. This idea would get referenced in the manga later. Kaworu's character seems to be the most diverged from Anno's early ideas, notably he was the only one not named by him but rather Satsukawa. Anno later also expressed he communicated Kaworu's character poorly and denied "thinking much" about any yaoi elements.
The Angel and Rei leave the room. from this point on Kaworu is referred to only as 'the Angel' in the stage directionsα Eva appears from the darkness.α Eva, upon confirming the presence of an Angel, attacks like a wild beast having spotted its prey.The Angel runs away, dragging Rei by the hand.The Angel handily dodges the berserk α Eva.Almost like Benkei at Gojo bridge. α Eva crashes into a wall and it crumbles.Through the thick smoke, the upper body of a seven-eyed giant can be seen nailed to a cross.
This episode is well-paced and impresses with great environments and intricate art. I really love the little banter between the characters so it was quite a fun read as well. What exactly happens in this episode? Read further!
To sum it up, this was a most interesting episode with a lot of world building going on. It raises a lot of new questions while answering some. It should be most interesting to see what else Miura has up his sleeve!
Back at the top, as Index looks up to the golem forming a fist and attempt to punch her. With tears in her eyes, Index whispers the name Touma before a sickening sound is heard. Index flinches, but her tear-ridden eyes opened up after some delay, realizing she is not dead. And there she sees her friend, Kazakiri Hyouka, kick the golem down to the ground. Index is naturally surprised, at which points she notices the large gaping hole in her leg, though which strangely does not affect her, as well as the fact tha it reformed itself, as if by magic. Index is shocked, but is told by Hyouka to run as the golem stands up to its feet once again. There is a hole upon its chest, which Hyouka made a little while ago, but with roar, it starts sucking up things like a vacuum, and eventually reforming the damaged part of its body. Index notes that the golem has gone berserk and that it must be losing its regeneration ability. Holding for dear life, Index tells Hyouka that they should run away. However, Hyouka tells her that she should hurry and run away first, as she needs to stop that monster. Index reasons that there is no way she could beat a monster like that, and she'll surely die. Hyouka says that Index need not worry, she turns her head and with a breaking voice, tells Index that she too is no human. She apologizes to Index for not telling her all this time, while the golem prepares to punch her. However, she manages to turn around in time, and block the attack with her inhuman strength. However, it is but only a moment, as the pressure is too much for even her body to bear. Lines appear upon her smooth skin, as the power of the golem begins to overwhelm her, and she is slowly pushed back. With a scream, Hyouka however, manages to get a second wind, and pushes back the golem with her strength. She turns to look at Index for a moment, still in a state of confusion. Recalling the happy times she spent with the girl and the boy, and regrets that she cannot go back there again.
After the long battle, the team goes back home and they both laugh and argue more over their times growing up together. Overall, definitely one of my top favorite episodes ever in Gingaman. The way it just dives into the lives of our heroes, while also playing with the internal struggles of our villains too, and plenty of sweet action.
The tome that Storious stole from the Southern Base's Forbidden library has fallen into Touma's hands. Its power was so strong that it made him go berserk. Reika informs the swordsmen of this development and seeks to retrieve the book at whatever cost, even if it means striking down Touma in the process, which Ryo strongly opposes. Reika informs Ryo that these orders come directly from Master Logos himself, and although Ryo struggles with the nature of the request, he nonetheless accepts the verdict. It isn't long before Touma approaches him once again. "Come at me with everything you've got!", exclaims Ryo who stands against Touma in a fierce fight as Mei and Sora stare at the ongoing battle. Who shall emerge victorious? Meanwhile, Legeiel, who had been completely devastated by Primitive Dragon's vicious attack, decides to focus his attention on another vengeful fight against Saber..
Legiel is once again getting a one-sided battle. Yuri goes to stop him from becoming berserk but with no avail. Legiel also interrupts the attempt and Rintaro joins the battle and was about to transform. But before Rintaro was able to transform, Saber Primitive notices it and blows away Rintaro with his claw, taking all of his blue Wonder Ridebook. Saber Primitive removes his Brave Dragon and uses Lion Senki to imbue his power with Lion Senki's power. Legiel is defeated with the finisher of Saber Primitive Dragon Lion Senki in ease again and continues to rampage.
At the train station, Misato reveals to Shin about his entire class being potential material for Eva pilots. What? You had an entire classroom full of idiots who could pilot Evangelions, yet you choose to have your whiny emo son go all the way to Tokyo-III at last possible moment just so he can pilot Eva with no training. Congratulations. This series never had any logic to begin with. Also, conversation ends with Shin stating he will never pilot Unicorn again and Misato saying he never talked like this before. Completely ignoring the fact that he attempted to quit several times already, like in episode 4.
Against all previously established logic, Unicorn drags bandage baby to herself with one hand, shoves her horn to one of his eyes, kicks him a mile away, infuses his tendril to her body and creates a new arm. NERV staff acts completely surprised upon seeing Unicorn go angry chimp mode for billionth time in the row while Unicorn starts to fool around, somehow having white eyes and white teeth despite episode 2 establishing her biological form has red teeth and green eyes with pupils.
Plot of this episode is stupid, relies on too many conveniences to happen and is simply too fast-paced. First half of the episode is basically Toji being at the hospital and Shinji trying to leave this city because classmate he barely interacted with got slightly hurt by his father, who essentially saved the whole world right here and wasted billions of dollars that went into construct Unit-03. 041b061a72
