It's my favorite arc for sure. I think the second one for me would be black swordsman for how dark it is
Conviction arc is much darker and more brutal though. Bit of a shame that the series probably will never be as violent again. Remember reading an interview with Miura where he said something along the line of such exlicit content not being possible any more these days.

That being said, I already noticed this while reading the manga the first time. Feels weird when the world is supposedly overflown with demons in the latest Fantasia arc yet the earlier arcs (especially the Conviction arc) feel much darker in comparrison.

When waiting for the new chapters, do you guys mean the Japanese individual chapters published in Young Animal before they are collected into a volume, not to speak of the volume being translated to English?

How would one even go about reading those outside Japan?

Nope. Nothing at all😔

Fuck that. I was so excited once it finally started and then he released one chapter and now the wait is starting all over again.

I mean I’m not a long time fan, I discovered it recently more or less... but still I want to know how it’s going to continue. So much potential. So many things not revealed.

Goat Next to one piece :)

"According to the text on the preview page, Berserk 359 will be returning to Elfhelm and will focus on Casca & Guts."
I.... can't.... believe... it....

Stoked to see how Miura will be handling the scene. IMO there is just no way for him to do it justice considering how long it took to get here. I mean, how many years has it been? 20+?

probably 20 pages and then another 2 years wait. I really got turned away from mangas because of all this waiting and it will be probably never be finished just like X-1999 and so many others that I can't remember anymore :messenger_loudly_crying:

Oh man, Miura... He actually handled the situation quite well for now. So good.

And the wait goes on I guess. Happy for now. Getting rid of Cascas princess look was the right thing to do.

Man, I've been waiting so long to see Casca and Guts talk. It never occurred to me that would happen, but it makes a lot of sense.

I'm starting to dread the idea that Guts will eventually die.

Damn, poor guts just can't catch a break.
Great chapter though, I hope the next one sticks with this part of the story.

Seriously, I was still in highschool the last time they actually spoke.

So when's next berserk hitting? Is he again MIA?

Btw. it's a fucking disgrace to anime/manga that there is no proper continuation of the berserk anime from 19xx. The new ones are utter shit and if there is one manga that deserves a 10/10 anime it's this one.

End of September again. No hiatus unless Miura just disappears

I was hoping that Netflix treats Berserk how they treated Castlevania but looks like it’s not happening.
