Emotional abuse or violence is mostly about maintaining power and control over someone, usually for completely selfish purposes. It goes far beyond of just being rude and mean to someone else. It's a sum of repeating actions for a specific purpose, like stroking your own ego. I see a lot of aspects in Berserk that … Continue reading Power Dynamics & Abuse in Berserk
I really dig Schierke and Guts. They are my most favorite duo in any work of fiction. They are both rather introverted and thoughtful personalities capable of change and learning.

From the beginning in the Golden Age, Casca was first and foremost written as woman, her struggles mostly centering around her femininity.

What does Casca know about her current situation?The Eclipse - What does Casca remember so far?What exactly about Guts … Continue reading What does Casca know and what will she do? [Episode 359]
Do you think we’ll ever get another love scene between Guts and Casca? I hope they’re able to reconcile and heal from their trauma together.
