Sad news

He actually died this year (2021). I feel sad because this can happen to any author. I think we should be grateful for the ones that are still alive . Hopefully they'll be able to finish their work before they pass. I refuse to continue something that is not completely. I would want the authors ending not his assistants. But then again that doesn't mean you can't still enjoy it but it will never be really canon and that's the frustrating part.

By far one of the most overrated pieces of garbage ive ever read. Read this manga long ago and never understand the hype now you got casuals and shonentards pretending like that got good taste cause they like berserk. The only decent part was the golden age arc and that dragged on forever. Than story barely goes anywhere in the later arcs just guts meeting new allies slashing monsters with surface level themes about friendship and self healing rinse and repeat, typical 60s battle shonen cliches that appeals to effeminate men and women.
Just a played out mediocre trash that should've ended along time ago. The only reason people really give this manga the time of the day is because of the "detailed artwork" and lets be honest the arc is generic lovecraftian inspired art that dosent stand out from the thousands of other dark fantasy detailed comic books. Not to mention this series HEAVILY ripsoff fist of the northstar and devilman. People like to praise Guts cause he's a tragic character(which is an archetype that has been done to death like MANY archetypes} and that he's soooooo unique when he's literally just taking cues from his former in kenshiro of hokuto no ken Yet nowhere as realistic or complex as ken. Absolute joke.

Forgettable characters that either die or are never mentioned again even one piece as much as I hate that series manages to keep characters relevant later on in the story. And why does my girl casca KEEP getting raped lmao Ik its a dark fantasy and I enjoy rape as much as the next guy but then she becomes pregnant with a demon baby and dosent wanna kill it😕 LMAO what a stupid character. Then you got griffith who is genuinely one of the worst characters I've ever seen he does literally nothing most of the story except in the golden age and again the story dosent progress until he makes his move WHICH IS NEVER. Not to mention he's just a typical cliche driven by greed and power so he turns to an evil force to invoke his "righteous" ideal character. And I'd have zero problem with that if people didnt suck him of so much like he's some messiah character when is basic and generic af lmao. Berserk fanboys are truly pathetic. Beserk is the type of seires that appeals to people who havent experience anything outside of surface trash like naruto or seaseme street episodes and think there smart in endearing for appreciating an over hyped piece of trash like this. ALL AROUND BERSERK IS GRAD A TRASH -10/10 FOR SURE

The Best manga
Rip. Muira died 🙁 Very unfortunate. Usually japanese have good life expectancy but i am guessing overwork and high bloodpressure was the main cause. Poor guy he dedicated his life to one thing but was never able to finish.

Epic at some points, mediocre at others

Plot: 7/10

Not a super unique premise but story is told in an very engaging way. The Golden Age is epitome and it gets downhill later. The latter half of plot kind a falls apart.

Art: 9/10

A masterpiece in its own. A guilty pleasure for action and gore fan. Early art is not that good but it improved tremedously later.

Characters: 8/10
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Love or hate them, you really care for all the characters. My favourite are Gutts and Griffith. The band of Hawk members are memorable, even all dead. I also like the development of side characters like Farnese and Serpico.

Enjoyment: 8/10

Berserk has its flaws. The violence and sexual content is too much and unneccessary sometimes (i.e Casca's rape). Plot is going nowhere at the moment. Nevertheless, I still enjoy it a lot. Once in while, I come back for the Golden age.

Best Manga EVER

I've heard of Berserk since I was a kid and heard it again when I read the comment section from Ubel blatt, the comments there tend to compare it with Berserk. I tried to look into the Berserk and honestly, I don't like the art. This manga is older than me but it hasn't end yet, I heard that it is a good manga but the hiatus is killing the fans, yet the fans still waiting for the return patiently. So, this year, I heard that it makes its return. So I decided to read it. At first I don't put so much hope, but hoooooooo boyyyyyy!!! I LOVE every single one of them (except for Sonia, that g*dd*mn noisy brat!), even for the villain, I love them toooo!!! I hate Griffith for what he did, but for a villain, I must give him 100/10 for being a horrible villain! Even for the Apostles too, they have so much background story (you hear that Sonia?? Apostles have more personality than you!)

What makes me love this manga is the story and the character development. Dang! Miura-sensei really can make a story. As I mention before, I love everyone of them (minus Sonia), I grew attached to Guts and always root and even pray for him to have a happy life with Casca, the thing that I rarely do with fictional characters. I do root for them but never in my life I pray for a fictional character. Guts story is a very tear jacking, from the very first day he was born, he always defy his destiny. I can feel how he was a lonely man and turned into a very caring man when he was with the band of Hawk, after that with his travelling companions. Huuuu Huuu... I wish Guts to have his happy ending with those he loves so dearly.

Upon seeing him getting older, my heart is crushed. He sacrificed so much already, his friends, his lover, his LIFE. I feel sad and as the reader, I only can pray that another ally will help him and I wish the travelling companions will get bigger and help him to fight (don't leave the fight for him, Serpico and Schierke only)

so he won't use his Berserk Armor so much which drains his life every time he uses it

Thought this was some lame, edgy manga. No: character writing, action, themes--all extremely good.

So yeah I really wasn't interested in reading this series for a long time. It's gotten a reputation as a dark fantasy series for teens or something, I feel. Lots of talk about how it's full of rape, lots of talk about the Eclipse, lots of talk about how awesome and actiony it is. There's not that much rape (what is there is often handled shockingly well), the Eclipse isn't the only good thing about the series by a longshot, and yes it's full of great action but that is surely not why it's so beloved and still being discussed despite hiatus after hiatus, and almost thirty years of publication as of this writing. I've written a longer review linked below to go over what makes Berserk so truly incredible, and the main thing is that it's a fantastic journey and a cut-through-your-heart tragedy.

One of the best High Fantasy mangas

Well structured story, much anticipation, round characters and mesmerizing art.
I feel like the vote should be split tho, before and after he finds the Berserker armour:
from 10/10 to 8/10
Not just because waiting in between the author's continuous hiatuses is annoying, but because the feeling of danger during the fights was almost nullified. Too overpower, let's say.

still one of the best mangas I've ever read
