Ahh...Berserk. Welcome to my guilty pleasure! This series is filled with gore, beautiful people, and muscular men fighting demons. This may sound like your typical Seinen fodder, but that couldn't be further from the truth. The series is very deep, dealing with politics, as well as ones ability to escape their position in life. The artwork starts out being really good, and just gets more and more beautiful as the series progresses. What makes this series stand out above others in its genre are the characters. The band of the hawk are by far some of my favorite characters. Griffith and Guts are by far the best of them, and the way their relationship develops is the main draw of this series. Other characters, such as Casca and Judeau make it even better. I must say that this is one of the most manly series out there. If you are into that sort of thing and haven't started it yet, do it now.
