Looking really good. Also getting a lot of Berserk vibes from this.

Female Guts because why not.

Doesn't look bad, doesn't look very original either.

I thought the armor and sword looked very berserk-like. Then like 30 seconds into the IGN interview they mention Berserk and Claymore as direct influences.

Looks interesting. I like the visual style but the actual combat looks a bit lackluster

The Berserk references are VERY on the nose to the point they actually feel like ripoffs ( the sword and armor especially ).

But I think it looks good.

Why do trailers feel like they have the same editing and sound effects/ music tho xD?


Oh and the end with the teeth.
Holy hell it really is just ripping off lol, it goes beyond just being a reference they're literally just copypasting things.

At first was very interesting, but then I realized how much of a ripoff of other materials it has.

There's quite a big difference between homage and shameless rip off.

The protagonist itself is a gender flipped Guts from berserk. And they even copied Schierke wtf.
