    And in case you missed it in EG's last release:



    Tough luck, animefags.
    -_- Screw you too buddy. This isn't surprising though, Berserk would be hard to stay true to and keep able to air on TV. There is a lot of stuff they would have to change.

    Yeah, about Miura's comment... Evil_Genius apparently mistranslated - a rare occurence, I should think. The guys over at SK.net have since cleared up the mess, however, and translated it as follows:

    Quote Originally Posted by Kentarou Miura

    *Not popular anymore, he uses the word "destroyed", such a thing.
    Basically, this is completely unrelated to any Berserk anime, in production or otherwise.

    Unless Miura picks up the pace it's probably going to take more than that. This year he made 7 episodes if I'm not mistaken.

    Eight so far: [CLICK].



    Know what? I'd like a second opinion on Miura's comment (or third, as it were). Here's the kanji:

    Can someone translate?

    SparkHunter13, the translation you posted is correct.

    It doesn't say cancelled, it says "destroyed" (weird uh?). I asumed he was talking about one single anime, the berserk anime...but didn't said the name cuz there is nothing concrete yet.

    But anime in general also works.

    Re: Berserk 309 Discussion/310 Prediction Thread

    Yeah, the way that's written it means "animes with a fighting hero". It doesn't say anything about Berserk or say "canceled" or anything.

    Literally it's:
    "It's been like this a while, but animes with a fighting male protagonist are mostly annihilated. I think there's still some demand for them, though."

    The word "hotondo" "mostly" should make it clear. If anything, he's hinting there WILL be a new Berserk anime, in my opinion. As this IS a manga about a fighting male protagonist.

    Wow I had no clue he was on a pace of less than one chapter per month, that is downright horrible.

    @ GAT & kewl: Thanks, guys.

    So, SK.net were right after all. I imagine it was the awkward wording that led to EG's misinterpreting... Then again, even the wording was addressed by SK.net (according to them, "destroyed" is intended to mean "dead", as in "not popular"), perhaps it was simply a lazy translation by EG...

    No big deal, though; these things happen from time to time. EG are still head and shoulders above the rest, as far as scanlations are concerned.

    Somebody here is spoiled by Shonens. :P In fact Shonen is the only regular magazine that demands an almost 1 chapter a week pace from its mangakas. The level of detail that is required for Berserk makes that impossible for Miura to pull off, considering he does most if not all of the work himself.

    Re: Berserk 309 Discussion/310 Prediction Thread

    Since we've gone almost completely off topic I'd like to enquire as to whether there will be another anime done up for berserk. I've searched high and low and have never seen anything that would lead me to believe this is fact. If anything has something concrete please post it. Unlike sparky i'd love a new anime. I remember reading/hearing/something that the reason Miura stopped the anime was because he couldn't make the anime the way he wanted and intended. He was forced to finish the anime because he was on contract and swore he'd never do it again. Prolly some of the same reasons why he continues to do all the work himself on berserk's manga. Like someone said it comes to no surprise that it sometimes takes miura several weeks to finish a release. I've posted on how I feel about this matter before but I don't really feel like getting another infraction so Im not going to express my view. However I will state that if he does do up another anime I think that this would light a fire under his ass and get him to work a lil faster.

    Scroll up to the top of the page. We were off topic because of that. There is no anime in planning.

    As to why there won't be. I don't think its because of sporadic releases more than the content of Berserk is so graphic and adult at times that it would be excessively difficult for them to stay true to the story.
