Chapter is out, you can get it here
I just read it with my evil genius mind and I had to say I'm very impressed by the ship drawing, I really loved this time around, and also it's crazy to see guts goin berserk again!
But now we're back to the breaks.
I guess I gotta get used to the breaks. I first came into contact with Berserk through the anime series 6 or so years ago. I just recently (within the past month) decided to read the manga itself, since I haven't ever read any kind of manga to begin with (I was unaware that it had gotten to 315 chapters, and still going!). I read all of the chapters up until now, so I'm still used to the pacing of that (being able to read 200 pages in one sitting, compared to 10 or so per few weeks [and now, a few months it seems]).
Cool doesn't look like much damage to guts in berserk mode yet. But i think he pulled a muscle or broke a bone in his thigh/quad. The beast of darkness took over him so easy this time, so looks like in the comming chapters when the fight is over guts is going to have to try tain it somehow without sheirke to get there.
That ship looked sick, no wonder miura is trying a break. He must of spent more than his 15 hours per day drawing it and it tired him out.
I doubt this will be a long break, less than a month at worst 2 months. I just hope its just one miss of young animal issue lol.
ps is guts nose getting more round? His got the roderk nose going on lol.
A 22 pages chapter, yet I felt that it was really short.
Maybe because there are a lot of double-pages, huge work.
So Guts really lost control so early. Or maybe not, the dog said he is willing to obey for now (that's not for nothing !), so maybe the mad dog won't go crazy against Guts' friends but will just be here until the fight ends. But I wonder if the dog can even make the difference between them and the enemy.
This is starting to become a little repetitive, I havn't seen the chapter yet, but for almost a year of berserk I'd rather see Gutts fighting things more exciting than squids.
Its also hard to see, how things are going to be ignited with Gutts and Griffith because at this rate. Even untill Gutts delivers Caska, I know its seemed wayyyy longer for us but it feels like Gutts isn't really bothered about revenge. Aswell the way Griffith is all in goodey mode its hard to see how he can badly piss the guy off.
Evil Genius' scan is up.

about the beast taking over guts...... i actually think that guts let the beast take over, or to be more precise he summoned it hoping to control it (he could have been fooled by the dog behaving nicely). maybe miura will show us that he can control it up to some degree in the upcoming chapters (or episodes or whatever the hell it is), i mean when will there be a chance as good as this one (since shierke isnt around). but on the other hand i think that the full moon should also affect the berserker guts, who is driven by the demon inside the guts........
well it looks like we'll have to wait to see how it turns out
But like the reasons you listed, its going to kick off but it just seems soooo many years ahead.
Nice chapter with Nice Art; However as some people are saying i'm sick of this Pirate Arc to me its just getting boring and if Muira is really going to just produce around 9 chapters give or take a year i would really like them not to be about pirates and Tentacles yet again. I enjoy berserk for its epic feel and how many struggles Guts and Company have to go through to complete their quest, but really Miura needs to speed this up a bit. As for how Guts will get his sanity back i'm betting Farnze will use her magic powers to call Guts back since she just learned astral form
My theory is that Guts and company are going to get to the elf village and before the elf king can finish healing Caska Griffith and the Band of Hawk will attack it in-order to wipe out the Wizards and the Elf King. Guts will ask Griffith to not kill the Elf King before he can heal Caska, but Griffith will do so anyway and then leave the Elf village in ruins. This will probably be the last straw for Guts as his last hope of getting the Caska he knew back will have been extinguished by Griffith.Quote:
Guts will probably leave the rest of his party on the island return to midland alone letting the berserk demon fully consume him and thus Guts will start his war against Griffith and the Band of the Hawk. Now of course things will happen and his party will return to him and he will be saved eventually but thats how he will return to the midlands and get the band of the hawk to start hunting him down even after he saved from the berserk demon.
Thats how i see him coming into conflict with Griffith and the Band of the Hawk Again
I think Griffith will kidnap caska or go after those two when his dream is complete because they are the last to his power. Ever sacifice got him/aspotles more power. Or maybe caska will leave guts for griffith to find her and guts child.
Yeah true the full moon prob helped the beast of darkness take control. He should one day control it, the moonlight child tame him that one time on the beach. He needs to be able to see through the armor to see what is really his enemy. But guts is starting to go blind, remember on the ship his sight faded when looking at caska.
How many years will it be till i see caska in guts arm and i say aww?
It might not happen, they may never get back together or a death.
I like Roderk but i don't like that his engage to farrny i want the step-siblings to be together because they been drawn together since they were little.
Reading evil genius scans it only says "til next time!" I don't see any information of a break.
Looks like the sea god is coming soon, he will prob look like emperor ganishika final form. Something epic, thats prob why if miura is going on another break, to draw the sea god over time.

I'd feel pretty bad for Guts if Caska left him after getting her memory back. I doubt she'd want to go anywhere since she'd still be traumatized after what Griffith did to her. Unless she doesn't remember the eclipse. And in that case, I'd laugh my ass off than cry >__>
I think caska will try and jump off another waterfall or kill herself but guts will stop her. That or chase after their son. I wonder if miura feels like having this 2 month break is enough to start drawing some pictures again!
