It's hard to say he isn't dedicated to his creation though, given the amount of work he puts into it. That can't be said of all mangaka who aren't regular with their stuff though
Okay, I'm eagerly awaiting the next coming chapters of Berserk, but I'm not going to post comments in the forum out of "entitlement". Especially when, this manga is being given to me for free. Miura knows what he's doing and when, the story continues, most of you will forget about your issues of him taking too long to release a chapter.
I'm more interested in the idea of Warner Bros. putting out more than 3 movies of Berserk.
Perhaps the key question that is boggling everyone's mind is WHY is Miura taking so long. So far, I have never seen a certain answer on it, there were a few speculations, but they were never 100% certain I believe. We of course enjoy Berserk even if the publications go YEARLY(), however I really think most would be at peace when we find out with certainty what this is all about.
I can't believe what I read about Miura here.
Slacking off? Good grief.
I'm not actually criticizing Miura's work here, it is close to being perfect in many levels : story and art
But if actually sharing the work with assistants will enable him to at least publish the chapters more frequently (20 pages monthly for example), I think it would be better, why ? Because I'm pretty afraid that the story won't finish or would be wrapped, there's still much much more to the story, I could say we've reached halfway
Guts is still no way strong to beat a Godhand, we still know nothing about Skull Knight, nor the other God Hands, we have yet to witness the " Age of darkness " that Slan talked about back when Griffith became the fifth God Hand, we've yet to see what is going to happen in Falconia, there's many many things left, and I'd truly hate it if the story won't get finished
Mirua is 46 years old now, the older he gets, the more troublesome it will be for him to keep up doing everything, he isn't young as he used to be when he began Berserk at 1989
A great, unfinished story, is indeed a waste, because it could've been completed if he used some help
I think you are seriously underestimating Miura's intelligence.
And making some statements that you don't know to be true for sure, just pure speculation.
Miura knows better than us his age, how long it will take to finish the manga and how much time is needed to do so.
I'm gonna just relax and enjoy the ride: so far Miura has spent more than 20 years developing a breathtaking story, and I have no reasons to doubt him now.
Chillax Wait and enjoy every announcement of the returns! Then enjoy the chapter then after 15 chapters are done go back to chapter 1 and read them all
I enjoy reading the volumes every time. I'll be in bed reading them for hours lololol.
You know what I have found funny (well great/awesome) Miura's art 21 years ago was better (IMO) than anything else and still is 21 years later. He hasn't change much with his work except for the posh up on character detail and the round nose lol.
I'm not underestimating him at all... And how it is pure speculation to say that there's many things that has yet to be explained when the manga itself shows them ? The big questions have yet to be answered, a lot of volumes were about Guts/Griffith and the Band of Hawk in general which served as the main pillar of the story, but Miura brought a lot of characters into his manga now, just the 4 remaining God Hand and the Skull Knight each of them would need a lot of chapters to reveal their mysteries, I could see a whole volume or more just dedicated to them since they're extremely shrouded in mystery.Quote:
The many mysteries for me are :
- God Hand
- Skull Knight
- Age of Darkness
- Guts strenght and how will he at least beat Griffith
- The Behelit with Guts : How's he's gonna use it ? I doubt Miura kept such an item with him for so long only to have no importance to the plot
- What's gonna happen to the world now with Griffith becoming like the King of the world ?
- The main apostles of the new Band of the Hawk (Zodd, Lucas, Grunbeld, Irvine)
- How Guts's friends are gonna get strong enough help him too ?
- The whole Idea of Evil which was quite explained, but I feel that Miura has yet to show us all about it
- The material world, and how it has merged with the astral world and what's gonna happen to it ?
We are definitely half way through this, right now, is just gonna be the beginning of the real deal
I'm also taking into account Miura's style : the pacing, the drawings, his tendency to be quite " deep " when he explains the past of many characters (example is Farneze and Serpico, it took quite some chapters to explain the deep relationship between them), the reason why Berserk is so good is that Miura doesn't rush, hence why the story has ZERO plothole and an extremely good consistency, and when I see just how many things are left there, I'm just afraid I won't get to see THE PERFECT end for this masterpiece, I don't want something rushed or wrapped, that would be an insult to his work
(I omitted Caska and her ordeal from the list because we're gonna get the answer soon enough)

not sure if i can post scanslations here...can't remember sorry
so i'll leave it to an admin or something to edit this if it is needed...?
bleach's author, tite kubo, uses this due to a lack of time for character design
he's stated in the past that he has had trouble with character design as well
also, alotta his characters look the same now lol..., in terms of facial structure and stuff
miura on the other hand uses it from artistic stand point
also, he uses it on all his characters in that episode
i think it's used to portray a dark past or something...
sorry if i can't elaborate lol
I don't get the obsession with a schedule. Come on guys. That's what shonens are for. Berserk is a work of art, let Miura give it to us when he feels like it. I get the idea that if it was any faster in release it would lose part of what makes the manga so good.
Release date: Friday 12 of October
First RAW scans scheduled for: Approximately today Tuesday or tomorrow Wednesday
Will be a special release of 24 pages, more than the 18/20 normal.
