[Anime] Episode 8: Philosopher's Stone

Since 7, I've been expecting good stuff, and looks like we're getting it. The episode continues with the dark tone and it really showed some of the main character's vulnerabilities.

What do you all think?

Damn this was a great. It looks like the next ep is chapter 3 of the Manga.

Hmm I just noticed that this series is taking place in pre-World War 1 Germany. Im basing this on the Fuhrer. But I could be wrong though because this is an anime after all. But if it is though I wonder if World War 1 will unfold in the series. Unless someone can correct me on this?

Another great episode after all the touching moment in ep 7.

Hmm, I thought that it was Tucker who had killed all those women for his Chimera experiments, guess not then. But that walking Xbox commercial pillar just seems to get more evil for every episode. But I´m waiting for those weird guys we saw in the opening and ep 2, glutony I think one was called so I guess they´re all named after sins.

Anime-Keep and ANBU are the main group ripping/subbing this. Neither have a webpage I know of, I think they coordinate through IRC.

Another good episode. Im hoping to see more on that mystery guy with the tatooed arm soon, there hasnt been much info on how he's going to tie in to the story yet.

Good episode but once again the presentation of the story is really better in the manga, especially Scar (the guy who killed Nina), the way he's shown in the anime sucks.

No, Fuhrer just means leader, they called him like that because that sounds military lol

Another really good episode. They are setting up lots of stuff in this episode. I do however wish that the serial killer thing could have been a little more set-up because the butcher being the killer kind of felt like it was out of left field. I really like this series. I do want to read the manga eventually, are there any scanlations and if not what volume are they up to in the american release if there is one. Been so busy reading the Berserk scanlations. Can't wait to buy the Dark Horse version because i really love Berserk. Since i like this show so much and i hear the manga is better(which usually is) i would like to read it too.

Hey thanks for the ANBU website, i haven't been able to find it.

Sweet! thanks guys i am downloading them right now. And for those who haven't read the berserk scanlations i do recommend it. Damn i loved the anime but the manga is so much better. Only i have one problem i can't find the first 3 vol. for some reason the Hawks don't have em on their website.

That's because the first 3 volumes of Berserk have been licensed. (the rest is still unlicensed though)

Other countries, no idea.

Oh ok thanks. I knew that the first Berserk manga was out but i didn't know that just the first 3 were licensed. Damn i read a website that explained the translations but didn't provide what was going on. Luckily i know alot about Berserk so even though it didn't show pictures or insight i could follow what was going on by just what they were saying. Only thing was the count and his daughter, wasn't in the anime. Neither was poor Puck. I knew of him because i played the Dreamcast game which rocked.

Anyone else interested in playing the SquareEnix game for this series. I know i am.

I have a feeling they are going to break off from eachother really soon... considering the anime is jumping all over parts of the manga...
