We’re a little bit late than we wanted, but here we are in our final installment of our Berserk coverage of the 2016 and 2017 series. Oh yea, E3 was this year, and it sucked, and we talk about that too.
(0:00 – 34:15) E3 2021 Review – Nothing really much to say, because nothing really happened. A new Halo, some talk from a company about diversity in the gaming industry, you know the hard hitting stuff every gamer really cares about, right? In terms of games the company that showed up was Limited Run Games, which Dustin talks why everyone should get everything Zombies Ate My Neighbors from them. Its a great game BUY IT!!! This also talks about Dustin still working on the old Initial D cabs, how LRG has the rights to Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties, and much more!
(34:15 – 1:55:17) Review: Berserk 2016/2017 – This finalizes what has been animated so far from Miura series, and Jonn and Dustin are there to share their thoughts on the series. This gets into Japanese censorship for nudity, bad CGI shows and Max Steel, the best review of Species 2, manga talk, the great failings of Tokyopop, internet drama and much more.
Just a heads up, make sure to check out Trigun ReAnimate, a collaborative project to reanimate the Trigun intro.
OP – Best opening to an anime should be a song from Clerks…
ED – Here’s a band that writes music about Berserk…

Yea for real, I had the same reaction as well…

Probably our first real anime review since last year, but we honor the late Kentaro Miura by reviewing the 1997 Berserk anime and The Golden Arc Films.
This entire episode (or the most we can do to stay focused on talking about our topic) is dedicated to Dustin and Jonn views on the Berserk anime. There’s hardly anything for a closing remarks segment since we felt like we’ve overdone that in our last episode. This anime is personal to Dustin because he started to watch the anime the month Miura passed, let alone THE SAME DAY that no one knew about till it was made official 2 weeks later! This gets us to discuss other note while things like the Arthur PBS cartoon, our personal history in how we knew/got into Berserk, thoughts on animation issues, books vs. the film adaptations, check out a better Berserk podcast than we could ever hope to achieve, popular shonen titles, Record of Lodoss War and other fantasy anime talk, Dustin leaving Geeks under Grace with his official last article on the Initial D arcade scene, and much more!
We’ll be back hopefully in our next installment to talk about the 2016 and 2017 series.
OP – RIP Kentarou Miura
ED – Possible best AMV tribute?
