    Will there be a happy end for gutts?

    What i mean is, through his whole life he had just bad luck.
    Do you believe that in the end he will find his peace in death, or will he live?

    He may live, but I doubt it'll be a happy ending. Maybe one of those "ironic" type of endings. Berserk doesn't really seem like the manga to have a "happy ending"

    I expect he'll just turn into a Skull Knight of sorts.

    A series like this cannot possibly have a happy ending, it's not allowed for it to happen.

    I completely disagree.
    In that I think it will be a happy ending but Gutts will die.

    People need to expand their ideas of what a "happy" ending can mean, especially if were talking Seinen manga here.

    I don't think Gutts dying would be good. He is survival incarnate. I opt for an ironic ending. A somehow satisfying, but not happy ending.

    Gutts will completely give in to his inner demon and become a raging berserker, killing all of his friends and terrorizing the land for decades to come, thus proving that fucking with the God Hand = bad shit.

    ...or is that too dark? :oh

    I side with Zephos on that one. Gatts will probably die but not before killing Femto and maybe even saving the Hawks from Hell.

    I'm also quite sure that gutts won't have his "and they lived happy ever after..".
    It just doesn't fit his charachter.

    But I think, that however he may end he'll go out creating a less darker future (if that is possible) for his kind.

    i'm pretty sure he'll die but yeah he'll probably kill femto first or his son or somehow god hand will cease existing. perhaps relating to the whole 'embrace nature/paganism' stuff with flora/skull knight

    For Gutts to have a happy ending, he would have to die.

    Ironic I know but that is the nature of this manga I feel.

    In dying, he will somehow save the land or something.

    His life is filled with the people he cares about dieing, to have the people around him live for once would be a happy ending.

    His life story has been way too tragic for him to live through this. Although, yeah we're looking at 20 more years of Berserk before the end.

    i'd be a happy ending if those he cares for at least live a long happy life, while he becomes once again the lone swordsman craving for battle

    There may be a happy ending for Casca and the rest of the party, but Guts himself will die. I already said it before and I will say it again.

    Guts' life is so damn fucked up because the only thing he can see ahead of his road is death, damnation and oblivion.

    it would probably ruin the manga completely if there was a really happy ending with gutts being a normal happy dad and husband or something like that

    Gutts asks to suck Griffiths cocks to which he allows, and then the manga ends.

    Yeah, you're right, it would feel pretty strange for a manga like this if in the end everything is just fine. But on the other hand, i also wouldn't hate it if such an happy ending really happens, because gutts went through so much trouble through his whole life that one could wish him that he at least finds some peace in something other than dying. Although i also prefer and expect him to die in the end.
