    Anyone else besides me really digging the Berserk manga? To be honest I believe it's probably one of the best mangas Japan has ever spout out to the masses, but I'm curious as to what others think of it. Any thoughts?

    One of my favorite manga's ever. When I downloaded it, I didn't expect to like it as much as I did (even though I loved the anime) but once I started, I couldn't stop. It was...insane. I stayed up until 5-6 a.m. more than once reading it feverishly.

    Now I just can't wait for more. Heh.

    I have the whole Anime series, and three manga books on it. What I like about it is the story, the whole thing with Griffith and Gatts is amazing. I only downloaded to Volume 6. Its great and also the manga is unfinished!

    Im in chapter 246 in volume 28 but the best part of the manga is the vatican part with really cool fights.

    go to X type in Berserk and every two weeks on sat there should be the latest translated chapter hot of the presses

    GO BERSERK! My favorite part is the entire Band of the Hawk story, really interesting.

    Yes Berserk is great. Japanese Art mixed with medieval/demon/magical manga, no one else has that.

    I wish they would pick up where the anime left off, but I highly doubt that would happen due to the intense violence (for example: dead kids cut in half) in many chapters.

    This is the best series ever, but i'm been to that it's author has a tendency of taking long vacation. How old is Berserk? 15 years old or something like that. One question the last chapter i read was when Guts was wounded and they tried to take of the berseker armour but couldn't because it would have killed him. Can you tell me that chapter and how many chapters have bben release since then. Thank in advance.

    That sounds like chapter 235, which is in the end of volume 27, but I'm not sure. Currently, there are 246 chapters, which is in volume 28, out right now.

    Just wait until later...you'll love 28 (which isn't available outside of mIRC, but I figured out how to use it, and if you really want it, IM me on Aim, msn, or Yim, depending on which you have. My names are in my profile).

    yeah. well i think the manga was great en all but the ending wasnt what i expected. it was kind of dissapointing a little. if there was another chapter explaining that ending then yeah it would be perfect. so he found another ballet, dose that mean hell see grifith again or somthing. and is caska dead or is she imprisioned? i think the ending shuld answer these questions first!

    Ok, Berserk has a great story and great characters. But what's the deal with all those girls getting raped? It's disgusting, unecessary (except for when Caska gets raped by Griffith, coz it makes u understand Guts' raging fury), I hate that. It's probably the only thing that keeps me from putting this title as my fav manga all time.

    ...what? What chapter is all of that based on?

    I've read up to the last chapter of volume 27. I don't remember it being said that Berserk was over so I went ahead and read your entire post thinking that you mistaked the manga for the anime, but that doesn't really sound like it.

    And yes, Berserk is awesome. It's definitely my favorite manga.

    Where talking about the volumes of manga, if you want to line up the anime episodes to the manga, the last episode of the anime is only at about vol 12 of the manga, so thats 17 volumes of manga that extend the story farther then the anime ever went, since right now there are 29 vols of manga and it is still ongoing. You probably dont even know of the main characters right now if you only saw the anime, such as Isidro, Scherkie, Serpico, Puck, the Kushun army and the new band of the hawks. So read the manga

    You either gotta buy it in bookstores since it was published by Dark Horse, find it on irc, or hope one of your friends has it to give to you

    I found out about berserk first through the anime, but after I found out that the manga continues the anime storyline, since you know how that ended, I downloaded, and man, I loved it even more. I don't usally read manga like Berserk, with gore and stuff, and the only other manga of this genre I've read and loved is MPD Psycho. Anyway, I love the new group Guts is travelling with right now. Serpico is pretty strong, and I like how he has this "duty to his lady first" attitude. :O I also wish Caska wil go back to "normal" since after seeing her be one of the best commanders of the Hawks, it's a bit disheartening to see her reduced to that state. :(

    i don't ;like griffith. *stab* :p Great character, but I don't like him. He's like one of those people in manga that I can appreciate, development, role, etc... but I just can't like the guy.

    There's currently 27 (and ongoing) in Japan, but I don't know where you can go to download them. I believe five volumes are published in the US. The manga is infinitely better than the anime, though. Try to get all of them if you can.

    Yeah, the anime series covers about 1-13 of the manga volumes. Also, the anime doesn't cover everything that happen in those 13 volumes.

    Chapter wise we're already at volume 29. Anyway the Hawks are SLOW they wait for the volumes to come out, go here: X

    Their IRC channel (IRChighway server) is: #[evil_genius]

    They release scanlations as soon as the new chapters come out, it's also a good forum.
    I woldn't mind a little rep >_>

    They're currently only 27 Volumes out as already been said but the manga is up to chapter 249 I think which should be in it's 29th Volume.

    Berserk is bi-weekly right?

    Yes it is. But Miura took a break during the whole summer and the whole December/January. He's slow.

    BTW - The [Evil Genius] group which scanlates it is now here: X

    The IRC channel is the same, thank you for the rep Mithrandil.

    That's exactly why I'm saying that he's slow... 15 years for 250 chapters, Kishimoto needed 5 years for 245...

    They do the hentai thing mildly in the anime.

    However, for the first one (volume 1-3) they skip in the series.. they don't even show puck! T_T

    ^^
    >8

    However.. there has been no fight involving Guts for a while now T_T.. just the lil punks..

    ^^
    >8

    but I did enjoy the hack n slash game that was brought out!

    Well Hajime no Ippo has been going on for 15 years and it's nearing 700 chapters and it's still weekly I believe... But that doesn't matter, as long as the series is good. Bi-weekly ain't so bad, there are other monthly series out there that sometimes take a break such as FMA and TT.

    I might as well read Berserk by chapters since the volume releases take too long. Though I'm already somewhere in volume 28.
