Default Berserk Manga Discussion

So I've finally caught up to the current volumes/chapters, and I've got a question:



Oh, and the artwork is fucking amazing.

Hmm, I'm not really all that confused, just a bit aggravated that the latest chapter taking 4 months to come out



Also Vivis, if you want to read another amazing story with artwork that is simply stunning, start reading Vagabond. It's a historical fiction on Miyamoto Musashi and how he came to be. It's very very detailed. It's my secondary favorite with Claymore being after that.

Hmmm... I'm not sure if I've read that missing chapter. I certainly haven't read the prototype.

The reason I'm confused is


Quizap: Urm... maybe it's just me, but the more Gatts ages/wears out, the more I fancy the pants off him. Hahaha. He wears hardcore weather-worn looks very well.

This is the reason to your first question:


Like I said in my previous post, there are WAY too many what if's and different stories that could come out of Berserk with where they are now. I just wish Kentaro would make more chapters in a quicker fashion.. I mean, the story is only 300 chapters in and the manga started in 1987

I do want to hear your opinion on some of the other arcs after the eclipse though, like the Tower Arc (can't remember what it was called) or the first initial story before the Golden Age Arc started.


We should do a buddy group and watch Berserk again! It'd be like my 50th time watching it but I oh so will!

You know, my memory of the various arcs are very vague, I've been reading this manga for a year now, with several months between now an dthe last time I picked it up.

By far, my favourite arcs is definitely when Gatts first joins Band of the Hawk, befriends Griffith and all that happens there. Basically, the part covered by the anime.


I have found, however, that recently the story's kinda veering off into a direction where I'm not sure wht's happening or where it's going. As if the creator's making it up as he goes along. I feel like there's no key theme or idea holding it all together. However, it's only dropped marginally in quality, with the weakest arc being


I am seriously looking forward to them getting to


As for a buddy group, hmmm... maybe. It wouldn't be anytime soon since I have way too much to watch. But you know, this thread is kinda like the manga buddy group. Looking forward to more discussion.

Did you read Berserk v13 c83 The Missing Chapter, the chapter that was later removed by the Author's request because he though it spoiled too much of the ideological viewpoint of the story?

Also, did you see Berserk Prototype, the Berserk oneshot/pilot where Griffith is (minor spoiler)
I just read this and that article..... simply amazing. Gattsu IS

I applaud thee for educating me on that.
