Use this thread to discuss anything related to Miura's new mini-series called "Gigantomakhia". The first translated chapter was released by Evil genius yesterday:
This Manga is awesome
I wish we would get 'next chapter is a big one, 43 pagse' for berserk instead of 'see you next time' <:
But oh well, this manga is awesome, too.
Seems pretty interesting.
And i really DO like the male lead
Not bad. The art is beautiful as usual, but at times it becomes too mangaish, especially Delos shots.
This whole thing about the empire is so mysterious, and those giants looks like Ganishka.
I'm looking forward to the next chapter.
Interesting concept, seems with the demons/monsters coming out it caused humans to adapt and take on new forms. While we seem to be following a person who is still human, we are unsure if the girl has something special to her. Odds are there is, it'll be interesting to see how it progresses.
Seems the main character can use jujitsu which is pretty cool, it does make for a lot of neat looking scenes since getting those angles and feel just right is rather tricky. Have to put a heavy focus on the bodies of the people as well as placement and position of the people in the bought, if it continues down that path it will make for an interesting miniseries.
If anything comes off as Miura just wanted to be able to tell a quick story from start to finish just for something new, and maybe to even have some fun with unique character designs, we have the insect tribe, so if that keeps up we might see bird people, reptile people, plants, fish etc etc, it will make for some good images.
yeah...i was going to say...
i think animals/bugs took humanoid forms...maybe evolved
but...the humans only evolved to deal with their climate/enviroment....

It was OK for a first chapter. I am interested by the plot with Gods, evolved humans and all but I guess it won't be developed very much since it will only be 6 chapters. Maybe he will try to end Berserk quickly and continue this.
Berserk is the work of a lifetime, and I don't see it ending so quickly just so that Miura can start a new series. It makes no sense.He needs to take his time and give us the best ending possible for this masterpiece.
^ By quickly I don't mean rushing the story but without or with less hiatuses and I am pretty sure he already knows how to end his story with all his breaks, he has enough time to draw another manga after all.
But yeah I guess the reason we got this new manga by Miura is because he's been thinking about it for a long time , so he wanted to get it out of the way so he can focus on Berserk.
I'm ok with him starting a new series, as long as he can work on Berserk. Kinda like Inoue Takehiko with Vagabond and Real
This man has a very rich fantasy. And I love it. His storytelling as well.
You will find the raw for chapter 2 here and the summary here. BTW, i think she peed in his mouth. I'm glad my Jimmies are eternal

Raw for chapter 3 and the summary.
I wonder if evil genius forgot about translating this Manga
can't thank you twice...
i wish someone would translate...i don't want to peek and be spoiled any more
maybe it would be nice to wait til they are all translated and read them thru...
Well normally chapter 3 is already out in Japan, and chapter 2 isn't translated yet. Maybe it's because of the holidays.
Maybe too late for me to comment on the first chapter, but whatever. The first chapter is really nice, I like it. It is pretty tame compared to what I expected from Miura, even if he is still giving his usual vibe in this manga. Looking forward for the translation of the remaining chapters, I am tempted to spoil myself if I don't get the translation soon.
