Berserk x Lotteria Burger Tie-Up “Too Surreal”


Even the most magnanimous of Berserk fans are having trouble with the above official image of Guts and Griffiths tucking in to a Lotteria hamburger and milkshake, as part of what must be the most mismatched anime tie-up yet…

The offer itself is available from all Lotteria shops from the 19th, and consists of an otherwise unremarkable teriyaki burger set with fries and a drink, along with special Berserk stationary, all for the princely sum of ¥1,000.

The fan reaction is less than forgiving:

“This is too surreal…”

“Oh come on, they are eating a burger and shake…”

“Wasn’t Berserk set in a medieval European setting? Did they have hamburgers back then? I’m pretty sure they had no milkshakes…”

“Surreal, isn’t it? Particularly Griffiths…”

“Guts looks like an old man.”

“He looks Korean…”

“They could get away with Guts, but not Griffiths.”

    What the hell is with the Korean hating for these guys? Do they know that in other parts on the planet there are Japanese-Korean restaurants? lol, idiots.

    Those are usually just Korean restaurants run by Koreans with a few common Japanese dishes, like sushi and udon.

    A lot of restaurants in the West coast are actually run by Japanese people who like to incorporate fusion into the cuisine. It just might differ depending on how large the communities of each nationalities are. East coast in America probably has more Koreans and Chinese than in the West coast where there's more of a Japanese community presence in Hawaii and California.

    Also, a lot of people in real life can't give a crap about this issue or at least not let it be an open issue to vent about hither dither. People raging in the internet would look pretty damn ridiculous in real life. And I hope they get that treatment more so with this racial issue.

    Lol. Is it that hard for the Japanese to not associate anything with Koreans or Chinese for 1 day? Least us barbarians are safe 6 days a week on that front.

    The korean thing is a meme on 2ch, it's for mocking the anti-korean 2channelers...

    3d is rarely done right. most of the times, it looks like it was added on instead of being a part of the experience. also, my head hurts with it.

    they should have gone in a different direction, like have the two sitting in the middle of the restaurant in full armor with several alarmed patrons staring at them.

    That would have been much better, and totally badass in a humorous way. This picture as it is now is just weird.

    It looks like a behind the scenes shot on set while the actors are taking a break. I think it's hilarious.

    they totally ruined it for me with the 3d cg animation. i can't understand how the japanese are killing an art form so close to them.
    also if i wanted to se a medieval fantasy 3d cg extravaganza i would much rather go watch again lord of the rings, at least it looks good, and not like some videogame rough sketch.

    I'd still rather watch this rather than Lord of the Rings, but I agree on the whole "cg sucks," thing. Hand-drawn art looks so much better, especially with some of the amazing Japanese artists out there doing it.

    And Berserk has fantastic artwork already...this movie isn't going to do the art justice, which is too bad. I'd love to see a fully-traditional Berserk anime. It'd be incredible. :'3

    and HOW do you suppose a fully-handdrawn anime with art on the same level as the manga would even realistically be possible without needign either 10 years or insane costs to make it? CG only looks bad when iits not well-done, and its getting better and better with time just like the drawn part of the animation itself. the way to go is not to reject one of the two, but the symbiosis between the two. just look how smooth the animation is, its all thanks to filling up the missing frames with CG.

    If Guts & Griffith had dined exclusively on a 100% Fast Food Burger Diet ala SUPERSIZE ME than:

    Guts would've been too morbidly obese to swing his fucking sword.

    Griffith would be a pot-bellied ChickenHawk FAGGOT resembling Elton John on a bender & would recruit exactly NO ONE for his mercenar army.

    Cheesburgers and Medieval Heroic Fantasy DO NOT FUCKING MIX.

    The use of berserk for this kind of advertising was totally out of place and that's all I have to say on that.

    Moving on, this is looking like it'll be good to watch. I owned the anime and read the whole manga, and am hoping the hiatus will be over soon (The chapters are published slow enough as it is). So I've got every reason to enjoy it.
    If this is popular enough, hopefully once they've finished the golden age series of films, they'll think about a follow up covering the main story. I'd love to see that animed, brutal as it'll be. >_>

    You mean hacked to death with the Dragonslayer, and then blown to bits with a hand-cannon, right?

    This is Golden Age Guts

    Now if the president is murdered with a claymore and a few years down the line his successors dumb enough to make another advertisement then it would be settled with a dragonslayer handcannon combo

    Griffith soda - Tastes like killing thousands of people and walking over their corpses.

    Guts burger - Tastes like stealing someone's friends and lover.

    And apparently with a Guts Burger, you eat it vertically... because that's how men eat burgers... vertically... and with an expression that looks simultaneously quizzical and constipated. Neither of which are attributes I could or would want to see for Guts. Except perhaps if they can make more of the best outtakes in the history of media, with Serenity a close second :D
