** It gets better. Guts had that flashback because when he was doing Casca from behind, the position that he had her in was quite reminiscent of the position that Donovan had ''him'' in -- meaning in short that he was seeing things ''through the eyes of the fucker that raped him''. This sparked some very deep self-loathing in Guts, such that he was trying to strangle what he thought was his past-self to death before he snapped out of it and the truth of what he was actually doing and who he was actually doing it to was revealed.

** It gets better. Guts had that flashback because when he was doing Casca from behind, the position that he had her in was quite reminiscent of the position that Donovan had ''him'' in -- meaning in short that he was seeing things ''through the eyes of the fucker man that raped him''. This sparked some very deep self-loathing in Guts, such that he was trying to strangle what he thought was his past-self to death before he snapped out of it and the truth of what he was actually doing and who he was actually doing it to was revealed.



** When the Eclipse goes down in the series proper, it marks a crucial turning point, where things turn from grim and gritty medieval fantasy into straight up horror as Griffith does a [[MoralEventHorizon truly malignant]] FaceHeelTurn, accepts the offer to become a Godhand, and marks everyone he's led, including Guts and Casca, with the infamous Brand of Sacrifice. Things go FromBadToWorse for them and the rest of the Hawks ''very, very quickly''. Many people we had come to like get killed very horrifically, many of them being eaten alive until only Guts and Casca are left. When Casca's sword breaks at the very worst possible time, she learns that the demons have ''other plans'' in mind for her, in addition to being eaten. Guts in the meantime has made a very badass showing against a whole mess of demons, but when he sees Casca naked and in the hands of the demons, Guts tries to save her, only for a demon by the name of Borkoff to clamp his massive jaws around Guts's left arm before he can reach her. And then Griffith, reborn as the fifth member of the Godhand, Femto, flies down right in front of him, brings Casca down to him, and then [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty starts having his way with her]] -- which is made ''even worse'' due to the fact that, because the Brand causes serious pain when its bearer is in the presence of a demon, and she's as close as anyone can possibly get to a ''member of the Godhand'', she is ''[[ColdBloodedTorture in complete and utter agony all the while that Femto is doing this to her]]''. Guts tries to kill Borkoff with his shortsword but breaks it on his impenetrable hide and is forced to ''chisel off the arm with what's left of the sword'' in order to get free. But when he finally gets free and goes after Femto? He is dogpiled by a whole mess of demons that claw out his right eye and is ForcedToWatch as Griffith, who used to be his best friend, brutally rapes the woman he loves to insanity, right in front of him and purely out of spite, and ''staring straight into Guts's eyes the entire time he's doing this to her'', without Guts being able to do a ''fucking thing'' about it.

** It's disturbingly implied that Guts has InLoveWithYourCarnage toward insane Casca when he finds her naked and soaked in the blood of the men who tried to gang-rape her after she killed all of them. Various panel shots have the MaleGaze over Casca's body, and it's implicated that despite the disturbing scenario of both Casca's insanity and her near-assault, Guts is turned on by this display (possibly due to years of being desensitized to violence and being emotionally deprived after so much trauma), which leads him to nearly rape Casca himself soon after finding her. Guts just barely stops himself from going through, but it leaves him SEVERELY fucked up and EXTREMELY aware how far off the deep end he's been going.

* Chapter 355: Sure, the entire chapter is heartwarming since [[spoiler:Casca has finally regained her sanity, been given a beautiful dress, and is slowly regaining her memories as she starts walking toward the giant cherry tree.]] Everything goes fine until the last few pages, because the moment she sees Guts and tries to speak his name, her PTSD kicks right the fuck in as we're given two double-page spreads of [[spoiler:Guts with the Eclipse behind him and a close-up shot of a highly-detailed pre-Eclipse Griffith's tortured body! The full implication of that scene is that Casca is about to remember ''everything'' that happened in the Eclipse.]] The horror ride never ends, does it, Miura-san?

* The Apostles' mere form and appearance will give you nightmares. Most Apostles shown in the Eclipse look like deformed genitals with gaping maws, VaginaDentata and unbelievably hideous faces. As for the Godhand themelves, Void has his lips peeled back to show off his teeth and gums and his eyelids are sewn shut. Let's not forget his exposed brain...

* The Apostles' mere form and appearance will give you nightmares. Most nightmares, and during the eclipse, the most bizarre and horrific ones come to town. At first, the Apostles shown in who first transform during the Eclipse eclipse don't look that much different to ones seen before, but as the spectacle continues, more mutilated and disturbing ones appear, looking like deformed genitals with gaping maws, VaginaDentata and unbelievably hideous faces. As for the Godhand themelves, Void has his lips peeled back to show off his teeth and gums and his eyelids are sewn shut. Let's not forget his exposed brain...

** And then one of these demons possesses the horse that Guts kidnapped Farnese on, which very nearly rapes her, only stopped by Guts flashbacking to the very worst moment from the Eclipse and shearing off its head in a berserker rage.

* If you thought that some scenes from the TV series were disturbing, don't even talk about ''Anime/BerserkTheGoldenAgeArc''. All gory battle scenes are played out precisely how they are in the manga. Most disturbingly is that sexual violence is played ''up'' in the movie; for instance the noble who assaulted Casca not only was trying rape her, but he also [[WouldHitAGirl beat the CRAP out of her.]] ''The Advent'', the movie where the Eclipse goes down, has reached notoriety in Japan as being one of [[BloodierAndGorier the most violent and disturbing animated movies PERIOD.]] In fact, it was so disturbing that some people reportedly '''had to leave the theater.''' And this was the edited version!!
