Yeah, that was kind of it, though for me it started off really good, I really liked the fairy, but the ending was well logical but still I did not like it as much as the beginning of it. And about the Sean God arc, it had a good build up as well, maybe not the best execution, though I guess it was a transition arc.
The reason why we had the "Griffith Arc" was so that we would understand what was going on when that veil surrounded everyone and combined the planes into one. It also gave the reason as to why Guts had to face off against the Sea God, had the Griffith Arc not been done then the veil and the fact they faced off against a mythical creature on an island would have made no sense to use since we are to believe that these creatures woudln't have existed in this world when they first departed on the ship.
There is truly no reason to go back to Griffith now since it would not add to the story unless something Griffith does affects Elfheim.
That's probably true. I'm just not sure where the story goes after they part with Isma. Elfheim immediately? Doubtful.
Why in the world does berserk take so long to release chapters? I want to be alive when it finishes.
He claims to spend 15 hours in a day working on it.
Well looks like Berserk will be back on October 12 (warning this is slighlty NSFW) :http://www.younganimal.com/magazine/next.html
I think they say something about the chapter being 24 pages long.
Thats less than 2 weeks away
25 is normally the amount of average pages. Man can't wait to see what happens next since the sea god arc is over maybe a bit of talk with Ilsma and her mother for abit.
Mirua should really think about hiring assistants really... Such a great manga going to waste just because of its schedule, if only it was monthly, it would've been much much better
Going to waste? Really?
I think it would make more sense about the long-ass breaks or unpredictable releases if we considered Berserk work that Miura does in his free time. If so, then it doesn't really matter when he finishes it (or even if does at all) because for all we know it's just something that does to pass the time away.
Well we are heading into fall, so yeah I was hoping late September, but with all the waiting we are used to two weeks for Berserk.
Well, this was not his hobby previously, that is for sure, this was what Miura did, it was his job. But it may just be because of the popularity that Berserk reached over the years that Miura started slacking off. Of course this can be seen that he became somewhat of a "celebrity", as in he does not need the regular work anymore. So yeah unless he works something else to fill in the time and money I can see him taking it easy because of the celebrity status.
If it takes about a month to make a chapter (episode), then why not make Berserk a monthly released manga and put an end to all the confusion that's caused when breaks last longer than 3 months? Because (here's more presumption) he isn't working on a deadline. There isn't anyone biting his ass to get the stuff out on a timely basis. Hey, I'm all for the artist being allowed to have the freedom to as he/she pleases, but even Bill Watterson still met his deadlines.
