Description
From ANN:

Guts, known as the Black Swordsman, seeks sanctuary from the demonic forces attracted to him and his woman because of a demonic mark on their necks, and also vengeance against the man who branded him as an unholy sacrifice. Aided only by his titanic strength gained from a harsh childhood lived with mercenaries, a gigantic sword, and an iron prosthetic left hand, Guts must struggle against his bleak destiny, all the while fighting with a rage that might strip him of his humanity.

Warning: This manga is for mature audiences only, since it has sexual content and graphic violence (gore, blood, rape, etc). Definitely not for the weak hearted.

The 1988 Prototype chapter won a prize at the Comi Manga School Miura attended and the main series won the Tezuka Osamu Award for Excellence in 2002.

What sets this manga apart from others is the connectivity between episodes. While some manga focus on a few characters that reappear from time to time to do their own thing, Berserk manages to intertwine the stories of a few key characters on "both" (there's really more than just two sides) sides of the struggles present within its pages. The artwork has steadily increased in quality and Miura manages to make the reader both love the badassness of Guts and despise the wickedness of Griffith more and more as the story progresses. I find that the bits of comedy interspersed within the manga keep it from becoming too serious and melodramatic. While bordering on antics at times, the humor is mainly referential and/or dark.

one of the best in every aspect, great storyline, character development, art, action, cool looking creatures and scenery. it has gore, and lots of it, but its not used in a way that it is its only redeeming quality, it adds to all. basically this is a must, unless u like sports manga, or gay stuff like pokemon

Really like this, I dont worship it like I do other manga tho (or other people this manga)
but I enjoy reading on to find out what is gonna happen to Guts & Caska (Im up to volume 21 now)
The sidestories dont interest me that much tho (unless they eventually are a part of something bigger), but truth be said, only one I read was about the elves and that one had a cool "sick" aspect to it.
And thats probably my favorite part about Berserk, how it turned to into a "fairly" normal medievel story about 3 people, into a SICK a
