Great first arks

After the golden ark the series goes nowhere, so if you're starting the series I recommend you stop after the eclipse and wait for it to end.

Since the author died and another took over the updates are still slow yet steadier. On the bright side, lets hope they pick up the pace and give the series a proper ending.

points for effort of world building

Rating: 7.0  / 10.0
Berserk is easily the grandest of its kind, I have never seen a Monster fantasy series as well developed (Claymore is decent, but in terms of world building, it pales to Berserk for both its complexity and reach).The plot though, I can't say much. This mainly because the author has passed away so most of what he has been building forward is practically now gone forever and I will have to see whether the people who will continue this (if there ever be any) can do justice to everything that has been laid down. And there's pretty much not much thing I can say about the story so far because, frankly it feel standard thing that I have seen

Why? just because.
Maybe we could see a similar case of the book The Lord of the Rings, Author died before he could finish the story.
Then the Writer Brandon Sanderson finish the story.
This is a highly popular work in japan and overseas.
This is the moment to cry... let everything out.. and forget about this Work for a while (years)......(decades)

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.

SHAMAN XEED WAS RIGHT THIS SERIES EXPOSES FRAUDS

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
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

Rating: 7.7  / 10.0
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 unnecessary sometimes. Plot is going nowhere at the moment. Nevertheless, I still enjoy it a lot. Once in while, I come back for the Golden age.
