Description
Set 100 million years in the future, it's about an epic war between the forces led by Zeus and the Nether forces led by the giant Alcyoneus.

Taking some time off from working on his Magnum Opus, Gigantomakhia is Miura's first new original work in 24 years. Those who know Miura primarily for his work on Berserk can be surprised to find that the tone of the series is quite lighthearted and idealistic, at least when compared to his long running main work.

I've read everything by the mangaka that's translated and morality-wise...they're the total opposite of what ppl know him for! Even Berserk Prototype was more like Shin Angyo Onshi with Beelzebub's main char as Guts. This one also follows some honor/ethics code (yet I thought it was the best written out of all his stuff...though campy). At first, I thought he was just versatile, but now, it seems Berserk isn't his natural style (probably doing it for the money? Gotta live, after all).

And guys...of course this is nowhere near as R-rated! Do you see it tagged with horror or mature?

Miura still has it that is for sure and after 20+ years of Guts and bloody glory Miura decided to return to his roots.
80s shounen-ish action. Even Berserk was supposed to be a "badass" shounen manga in the very beginning but he reconsidered. What we have now is a family friendly (enough) dramedy in a rich science-fantasy world with charming characters. Is the story earth shattering? Well no and most of the time is devoted to word building and characterization as only chapter 6 and 7 show a bit of the outside picture which is fine as this project was supposed to be a refresher for him and the fans and i am glad he did it. The art and designs especially are a beauty to behold and the sense of scale and movement are as always second to none. Only Frank Quitly and Mori Kaoru can draw THIS well and who but a true artist would have a mecha wrestling match to finish a series?
Well maybe Hideki Anno but i think he prefers synchronized dancing. No seriously this is a nice fun action adventure that shows that Miura still has many great ideas left in him and i would like to return to this world when Berserk ends in a decade as Miura wants to. Have fun and don´t expect the next great thing but a fun and corny 80s action movie and read his reviewed Futatabi (8/10) debut piece too.

Don't get turned off by this series just because the first commenter has "issues" with the first chapter.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Just because it has a "loli" does not make this pedophilic. The scene where she is standing on his shoulders was supposed to be more humorous than sexual considering her sarcastic, dry sense of humor.
Boob mountains: "Boobs how sick" Get over it. Still not sexual in nature.
Angry black dude: He is of a different race, one that has adapted to the harsh desert sun. Just because you have a light skinned character winning a fight over a darker skinned character does not make this racist.
And lastly, Muira is a known to be a huge wrestling fan. Woopdee doo, the character uses grappling moves.

Now a more unbiased opinion of this series would be that it is ok but not great so far. That's considering that I am a huge Berserk fan. The art style is good but it doesn't seem as detailed as Berserk (or as violent). Give it a chance if you like weird post-apocalyptic stories. Just don't expect something epic, at least I'm not.

Everyone is prejudice about something and this is a Kentaro's work so I didn't expect any high school romance. Despite that, the first chapter of Gigantomakhia is mild compare to the earliest Berserk chapters.
If someone complained the protagonist looks Japanese then deal with it because this is a Japanese manga. When I watch a Hollywood movie, I don't expect it to represents world view. Have you ever seen a American movie with a Russian/Chinese/Indian/or any non-American saving the world?

Flame war asides, I didn't find the intensity of Berserk in the first chapter of Gigantomakhia but still, it is a good start.

this is pretty bad
we have lolis who offers to pee on a grown mans face and to show him her genitalia
we have boob-shaped sand dunes
we have a big angry ugly black man who punch things
and we have the japanproxy who are the only ones who can use typical grappler moves
"honorable martial arts that impress everyone"

so in other words
its a typical racist,pedo,sexual crapfest that i thought it was going to be
the art style is ok if you like berserk
