Any fans of the Berserk manga here? I never bothered with the anime, because they removed the cool characters (Skull Knight, Wyald, the Bakiraka) in the 1997 version and the new one looks like a complete pile of aborted fetuses.

For the uninitiated, Berserk is an amazing manga, with a phenomenal artwork and a amazing plot full of mind-fuckery that is the dream of every nerd obssessed with gore, monsters and tits.

I stopped following the manga like a year ago or two maybe? I last remember something with demons chasing a wagon I think.
Original anime is stellar for the time though. Imagine if they had a bigger budget!

I have seen the anime, old and new. The new ones animation is kinda bad but still it was cool to see those events animated.
The old one is great just gotta remember to skip the lame opening song.
Been reading the manga, now around volume 32 or so.

Don't watch the anime. Read the manga.

Been a fan of Berserk going on a full decade now, it's a massive influence to my work. :thumbsup:

Fuck Yes!! Greatest Manga I have ever read. The 96 anime was amazing as well. Good to see that Miura is gonna start being more consistent with chapter releases. Must be tough being a Mangaka.

I am not terribly familiar with the manga itself, but I greatly enjoyed the series from the 90s, and the game that was released on Sega Dreamcast was good fun.

Looks like the potato Caska situation finally came to an end.

It's only taken TWENTY TWO FUCKING YEARS. Watch, she'll fall into a coma and be written out for the next decade or two.

It's the safest way to keep the story going. A grade-A badass like a conscious and sentient Caska would end the conflict in 15 minutes.

I'm sure there'll be a lot of pseudo-deep emotional crap between Guts and Caska for the next few chapters. For now I'm more interested in the development of the Rickert/Daiba/Silat alliance
