⚠️ Encyclopedia Dramatica is currently being restored by automated scripts ⚠️
There's been a lot of questions as to what's going on with the site and what comes next. So we have this (ordered) roadmap of what's being worked on and what's to come. This will be updated until the roadmap is complete as Æ has a lot of missing features and ideas that I'd like to fix in regards to its offerings before I implement big plans for the site's popularity and well-being in 2021.
Content restoration (Mostly done, few things missing that will be restored sporadically) Image restoration (Being run in background, nothing I can do cept wait)
Æ Imageboard (Currently being worked on)
Mediawiki upgrade and backend fixes
.onion domain for Tor-friendly editing and viewing
CSS overhaul (Fixing things like the videos on mobile, and overall a rehaul of the wiki's look to be more friendly to readers)
Paid bounty board for new articles (Won't be managed by me for legal reasons however I will ensure it runs smoothly)
Anonymous phone # service for those seeking ban evades from Twitter as well as a phone number not tied to their name (more details at launch)
Currently we are nearing our annual LLC renewal fee ($650) as well throwing the funds required for these other changes and aspects. If you would like to support Æ consider purchasing a copy of The Hustler's Bible or securing some Merch. Donating is also appreciated however I would rather give something back as per the two options above.
If you have any questions you can join our public Telegram chat to DM me privately or @ me in chat.
You can also email me via [email protected]
Merch notes: Thank you to all who have purchased merch. We will ship late January or mid February depending on our provider's speed.
Here's to setting the world on fire in 2021!
- Not to be confused with Berserker.
It's no secret that the giant sword trope is pretty famous among video games and anime. But when you ask people what started the whole giant sword trend, they might think of Bleach or Final Fantasy. But the one series that started this common trend is a manga series known as Berserk.
Berserk is an on-going Japanese fantasy manga series written by Kentaro Miura in 1989 which started as a one shot prototype manga in 1988 and it's also the most hardcore manga ever. Berserk has everything, gore, fighting, demons, Lovecraftian nightmares, rape, pedophilia, gay sex, child murder, etc.
Berserk follows the story of an emo mercenary named Guts (or Gattsu if you're retarded) who carries a giant sword and still somehow managed to get his ass beat by a gay guy named Griffith. Griffith leads a mercenary band called the Band of the Hawk and then later takes in Guts as his right-hand man who totally isn't gay for him. After 3 years of glory, Guts decides to leave the Band of the Hawk and then Griffith tries to prove he's not gay by having hot sex with the King's daughter, but fails because after having sex he still ends up thinking about Guts. Griffith was then tortured for a whole year for popping the princess's precious cherry and then gets his ass rescued by Guts and company. After all of that, Griffith almost becomes an hero and accidentally summoned a bunch of demons and four mini-gods. Then he agrees to sacrifice the entirety of the Band of the Hawk and becomes a flying bat demon-thing. Then Griffith rapes Guts's girlfriend right in front of him while Guts is pinned down to a pool of his friends' blood. After all of that, a Ghost Rider knock-off bursts through the sun and saves Guts and Casca. Guts then gets a huge fucking sword and devotes his entire life to murdering Griffith painfully and brutally as possible, which is going to be hard because Griffith basically a god at this point.
- Guts: Also known as the Black Swordsman. He wields a giant sword and kills demons every single night, no joke. And he's also probably the most hardcore protagonist in all of animu. Seriously, he was born from his mother's corpse, raped as a child, stabbed through the face, took 1000 god-punches at once, and jumped into the mouth of a giant sea god and killed it from inside. And after all of that he STILL FUCKING SURVIVES!
- Griffith: Leader of the band of the hawks. Tried too hard to look like a badass in front of everyone and secretly wanted to suck Guts dick before he left the group. Gets locked up and tortured for trying to prove that he wasn't a homo.
- Casca: The only female in the hawks who constantly bitched and moaned at Guts in most episodes. Also bought a little bit of that "women can be as strong as men too" shit into the mix. But nevertheless, she fell in love with Guts right before getting brutally raped by Griffith. How romantic!
The Berserk anime is known for its QUALITY animation, the bemusing result of its attempt to combine 3D and 2D animation, CGI, and cell-shading. The animators were so embarrassed with the (un)finished product that they redid some scenes for the Blu-Ray release.
2017 Video Game: Berserk and the Band of the Hawk
In February 2017, KOEI Tecmo release another shitty Musou type of game under the Berserk franchise titled Berserk and the Band of the Hawk. Unlike all the other Musou ripoffs, this one kept the elements of what Berserk is. Wait until the price greatly drops if you're into Musou games. For now it's only worth renting it.
But critics agree, the animated version is far superior due the level of quality in its CGI 3D animation.
