The New Berserk Game Gave Casca Boob Armor.

| Categories: Video Games | 24 Comments »


Over on our Open Forum Speakout, user Leon-Evelake found something strange about the new Berserk game. That thing is of course they gave Casca Boob armor. For those new to Berserk, Casca is the female lead of the series.

While Berserks content has been brought into question due to its graphic violent and sexual nature. The series has always maintained a  sense of realism with their armor and designs. While there are eccentricities to some characters designs, these are not something from your usual medieval Fantasy.

In particular it does not fall into the stereotypical fantasy tropes for Women. Rather than having them wear revealing armor; or Armor that has exaggerated female shapes . The series has always opted to have more realistic and practical armor.

Though Berserk is a Fantasy world, the social political structure of the world mirrors ours and does not feature an idealized society that features women in what was seen as traditionally male roles. This makes the change all the more jarring. Especially for the more down to earth Golden Age Arc.

Casca in all her different designs-

Here is the images of Casca from Berserk and the Band of The Hawk-

 

Here are images from the manga, the source material.

 

This is a strange thing to see, as both Anime incarnations have had normal breast plates( though the new movies later had the boob armor as well, though more subtle).See below-

As you can see above, the games and last movie iterations are the only version to have added the boob shapes to the armor. This is an odd thing to add as her armor maintained the more realistic design  for nearly 28 years.

    Why though? It takes more polygons, looks goofier and is just not the same as it is in the Manga/anime…WHY

  • bungalo

    More boobs is ok with me

    • Leon Evelake

      Its not really more…just more awkward

  • Harrison Ford

    Why would any sane person get offended hard enough to write a article? Especially in a weeb game…

    • Leon Evelake

      Offended?
      Is it wrong to note odd changes?

    • Jacob Kellogg

      I wouldn’t say anyone was super offended by this, just pointing out an odd thing to change.

      As a Berserk fan this seemed particularly odd as Miura has avoided it for well, 28 years.

    • Harrison Ford

      Wouldnt have guessed weebs would be sjws.

      • Leon Evelake

        Had nothing to do with social justice. It’s simple berserk gets for mostly authentic armors and the game went typical

      • Jason Mounce

        You obviously don’t know what the terminology of ‘SJW’ is or how to identify them.

        People are complaining about the lack of authenticity, simply. That the author maintains a solid understanding of Medieval Armor and weapons and keeps it accurate with a Fantasy-twist. Then you have other Japs that just think to themselves: “A woman in a game? Where’s the BOOBS?! MAKE THEM BIGGER!”.

        Jap perversion, it’s typical.

        That and, Kentaro Miura is no doubt into Loli’s anyways. lmao.

    • from a canon perspective it’s an odd change period for this one game where nothing else is like that.

      If it was just fan work fine but it’s supposed to be an official game.

      For me personally, i like her with small boobs more than big boobs but thats just me ;)

      • Jacob Kellogg

        XD The last sentence…

  • TimesTicking

    This is obvious, the designer clearly never read/watched Berserk.

    • Jacob Kellogg

      KInda seems like it honestly…

  • this is the only anime i know that heavily supports rape:/

    • Leon Evelake

      How?
      It treats it as heavily traumatic?
      It showed how guts being raped as a child messed him up his whole life. And caaca still has not recovered.
      It more graphic than it should be sometimes…but it’s always treated as horrific

    • Jason Mounce

      “Supports Rape”…

      Because Using ‘Rape’ as a plot-device in order to reveal character experiences and trauma….means that the author ‘Supports’ Rape…

      You’re retarded. You’re probably 1 of these or all of them: A Cuck, a SJW, A Democrat.

    • Jacob Kellogg

      I would hardly say it supports rape…Well the game is questionable as it makes it more pervy. But rape in the anime was never used to really turn you on, more of dealing with the horrid repercussions of the atrocious act.

    • ordinarypan

      I know,and all the TVs & movies are so support killing, what a mess, right?

    • Beardy

      I really don’t think showing rape implies support. As a matter of fact, they did the opposite through Guts, who even blames himself for being unable to stop Casca’s rape, and all rapists within the show are summarily killed within record time.

      Tell me again how it supports rape?

      • Leon Evelake

        Not to mention it shoes how badly being raped as a child affected Guts going so as to show how it effected his negatively during his time having sex 

        Granted I think it was overly graphic a few times but I don’t think it ever came close to supporting rape at all. I don’t think anyone who read the books or watched the series could honestly draw that conclusion
