    Does anyone here love Berserk?

    I'm a huge Berserk-fan, so I was just wondering. IMO, it's probably one of the best, most masterfully told stories in anime.. nothing even comes close in realism and depth. Besides, who doesn't like Gatsu? He's the classic badass, as someone else put it, who doesn't put up with any BS, be it from God, demon or man. Berserk may not be very pretty (it's in fact very ugly), the music blows and the title theme is akin to nails on chalkboards, but it all makes up for it with the story. I can' t think of any other anime that manages to do that! :)

    Personally I like both the Berserk manga (especially!) and the anime a lot more than Narutos manga and anime, I hate the dragging on and filler eps of Naruto. imo Naruto stopped beeing great at the end of the water country and went downhill during the chuunin prelimineries 8P

    Yup, the manga is awesome (read all volumes). I think the long breaks between volumes is inexcusable though, even more considering how slow the plot progresses.

    I love the manga, just wish Dark Horse would release it a bit faster. I've already read up to where it is in Japan now but I like owning the actual books

    Heh finally a Berserk thread. Loved the anime. Haven't really caught up on the manga. Thanks to a shortage of money. But will do in time =D Can't wait for the new Berserk game for the Ps2. Hopefully it will be good.

    You can download the manga from The Hawks. I've bought the ones that are available from Dark Horse (1-6), and you should too, but if you don't have the money or want to start from where the anime ends (around volume 13-14), that's your only choice.

    Berserk is great. I've only seen like 3 episodes of the anime, can't find a good quality sub or even dub. But I've read up to Volume 28 in the manga, this manga is great though it can tone down on the orgies...

    You can get it at Link removed
    Might be a bit slow due to few seeds, but it didn't take all that long time for me to get it.

    According to animenfo.com, the anime is only 25 episodes. Even though the manga is still up and running. It's a classic case of in anime world.

    Im merging this with the Berserk thread we already have

    I got this 2 weeks or so ago and read through the whole thing in a few days. It was really awesome, and I can't wait till more comes out. I hear the anime is not as good, but I still want it. Thanks a lot for the link.

    oh yeah, if you've already seen the anime, play berserk for ps2 (i believe it was) and the story pretty much picks up where the anime left off.

    or you could just read the manga

    That's where the anime ends...

    Manga goes on much further. Manga still going on, a chapter every 2 weeks (aside from when the mangaka takes a break...)

    It's still going on in Japan. Releases ever 2 weeks(aside from the breaks as mentioned before). Only at chapter 255 though even though it's been running for 15 years due to it's release rate and some breaks but the detail is as awesome as ever or rather more so.

    Well it's no record as there are mangas that have been runnings since the 60s or 70s(I think there are 2 or 3, or at least that I know of).

    Nah, I don't think it's going to be over any time soon. Doesn't seem close to an ending at all. In fact more like a 'beginning'
    Spoiler:
    Regarding Gutts finally starting his path to becoming lik the Skull Knight. And the "Berserk"er Armor.
    . Hajime No Ippo has been going on has long and has 691 chapters and still weekly. But not complaining, Berserk is quite detailed...
