some dude in some forums, ignoring Jill, Luca, Farnese and Casca (via ilaughat-funnystuff)
Whoever this guy is can be schooled two ways from Sunday easy, even during the GAA: the Queen? Heads the conspiracy to eliminate Griffith, and oh yeah, carried on an affair with the HEIR TO THE THRONE. Charlotte? Actually succeeds in helping set Griffith free. Charlotte was assaulted, but she fought back. Post-GAA, the Lost Children Arc is told through the POV of Jill and Rosine. Neither Jill or Rosine are threatened with rape (EDIT: Jill is, I forgot about that, sorry) it is in fact that Rosine is the produce of a rape and her fake father blames her for it and abuses her that she becomes desperate enough to become an Apostle (and she ends up sacrificing them so you don’t have rape victim you have a rape survivor story, but lets not pay attention to that). In the Conviction Arc the only ones to survive a massive genocidal event? The prostitutes, because they were smart enough not to get swept up in the mob mentality, because they had a leader, another prostitute, who told them the only way to survive is not to panic. Even Nina survives! And she was the most scared and “weak” of all. This makes her STRONG, regardless of her physicality. Who is the only other person to hear about WHY the collapse is even happening from the Egg of the World? Luca! Luca is also the one who leads Guts, Jerome and Co. into the Tower to help save Casca. There’s Farnese, who can have her own ten page essay. She goes from religious zealot to religious tolerance and it’s difficult for her. She recognizes her mistakes and attempts to fix them. There’s Shierke. THE MOST POWERFUL MAGICAL PERSON IN THE BERSERK WORLD barring the Godhand, and she has no idea how the world is and is afraid but she fights on anyway because she knows what it means if she doesn’t. There’s Flora who taught her and totally got down with Skull Knight at some point. They are STRONG CHARACTERS who change and help the story thematically and with plot, but yeah, lets disregard them because in the end all that matters is physical strength.
Fantastic response. But again I must ask:
HOW THE FUCK DO PEOPLE READ THIS SERIES???
