If you ever wondered what that epynomous Manga is, that everyone refers to as one of, if not the single best Manga out there, then look no further, as for you have reached your goal.

To summarize, Berserk is the story about Guts, a tremendously skilled swordsman wielding what can only be called a giant lump of iron as his primary weapon, always hunting down his nemesis that is Griffith. Leaving a path of blood and guts behind him, over the course of the story he has earned himself the nickname 'The Black Swordsman' - being feared by friends and instilling utter despair in his enemies.

Talk about destroying your own creation. I think the author has lost interest himself. He puts out a random chapter whenever he is out of food, I guess. I don't see it any it ever ending possibly.

I think he is just really slow at drawing. Maybe he's a perfectionist or just lazy but Berserk is indeed terribly slow. Nevertheless Berserk is quite the accomplishment as it is hailed as one of the best long-running series ever and has become really famous among manga readers despite it's slow releases.

Slow release is one thing. I can deal with that, after all, I've been reading Glass Mask since childhood. But what's coming out lately is totally incoherent with Berserk used to be. The last arc with mermaids and sea god was really lame and pointless.

The sea god I admit I was disappointing and quite irrelevant. I hope though the mermaids will be useful in the future as the world has gotten a bit crazy and having some mythical beast as allies isn't a very bad thing ;)

It's very slow. I dropped it because it was so slow! I will read the chapters at once later.... I think it's better that way. Then wait for more chapters to accumulate!

I think the name is Irvine. The centaur one is Locus, who uses a spear.

Well Irvine does also resemble a centaur a bit.

I love how most of this thread was too lazy to look over the last chapter to find out. Not trying to insult anyone I was too lazy as well, still am in fact.

@Drugz  Very true

 

So many months do we have to wait for more chapters?

Not sure. One month has passed so I guess either 2 to 3 more months.

That sucks too many good series on hiatus right now. Berserk is especially frustrating of course because there will always be breaks until the series ends. While other can come off of their break and stay off updating.

Indeed. The scary thing about other manga hiatuses is you have no idea when the author starts to draw again. There are manga that have been on hiatus for years without a word from the author :( Berserk on the other hand is just slow.

I suppose there is no winning with hiatus'

 

These breaks have made me feel that Berserk has lost its touch. It no longer excites me like it used to. I guess all of this stuff has been discussed to death by now.

Perhaps, but that depends just how far you are willing to go  ;)
