Kentarou Miura's Berserk is a dark fantasy manga set in a mythic imitation of feudal or medieval Europe. The story is about Guts, a tragic antihero, a butcher, an overpowered human that is only equal to monster in terms of strength. His path is to set revenge on those who betrayed him in the past and to seek freedom in a world ruled by GodHand...The Malicious 5, and the path he chose left a trail littered with corpses.

What you are suppose to expect from this...
This is a mature manga. Full of violence, sexual content and detailed gore. An extremely violence to the point that thousand will die, surprise sex is inevitable but not common and intestines wriggle happily out from severed wounds but the story itself is more than that. Its about war, political intrigue, ambiguous morality, insanity, dark revenge, great dreams, tragic love, and a terrible pantheon of evil spirits.

This manga is one of the few that shows how the main character earns his respectful inhumane strength through sheer determination, progression, endurance and that thick black iron sword and that is why the growth of Guts is a memorable one. Not like the current ones on how some guy was granted some power or he is the chosen one bullshit ( Gantz is excluded because it makes sense )

And characters yes characters...
Lets put it in perspective
What would you do if your trusted friend, a respectable commander, a wise leader betrayed you for greater power wiping the whole army of battalion that you see them as a family...Every last one of them and you are all alone pitted against monster with inhumane strength and all you have is a broken b@stard sword ( Blardy censord ). Thats what the main hero went through and overcomed

And heres a quote from someone
QUOTE
And speaking of characters, you can expect the best here. Berserk's writing deftly dances between pulpy action and literary character development. The primary actors are well-rounded complex characters with deep motivations and even deeper relationships. They are supported by a wide cast of similarly excellent secondary characters, giving Berserk a dynamic plot structure and a vast number of interesting and meaningful character conflicts. The story is set in a highly detailed mythos, a wide fictional geography, and a mysterious but important world history. Everything feels rich, alive, and authentic--even the monsters.

Beside its awesome story heres a few pages on why berserk is so beautiful in terms of detail and artwork

About the anime version of this

QUOTE
There is a Berserk anime. It follows the first thirteen volumes of the manga in 25 episodes before ending abruptly. I recommend reading the manga first and watching the anime second--if you watch it at all. It omits vital characters and plot points, making it impossible for the anime to coherently continue after a certain chapter in the story. Furthermore, those characters and plot points were part of the foreshadowing, and without them, the ending of the anime becomes a bizarre, almost ridiculous surprise.

The anime isn't a stinker, but it doesn't measure up to the original manga. There isn't much else to say.


Hmm...what else
Did you know Guts is crowned as the manliest in Japanese anime and manga?

Sad to say though the chapters of manga rested at 247 and the current whereabouts about the author is unknown....

But just read this because its awesome and manly
First few chapters might be slow but once it kicks in about Guts past then its ready to roll

The only thing I hate about this manga is the wait between chapters. Sweet mother, the last one was about 3 month++ wait?

Oh ya, its #300 now. Wohoo smile.gif

Definitely one of the best mangas. Love the story, gore, level of detail and struggles.

At the current pace, I hope Kentarou Miura doesn't die before he finishes it.
