Thats the same thing. What Miura does is akin to making a meal that will never end. Is that worth all the waiting in the world? Yes, yes it is.

But to know 34 people who died reading Berserk and always waiting for an ending is very difficult to register in my mind. I hope that on the other side, we read manga better than what's on Earth.
How about those who read the bible? - Billions of people (from generation to generation) still die without witnessing the Apocalypse.
So I think it is not Muira's fault that Berserk is taking too long to reach a conclusive end (at least I hope so). It's not like we know the amount of regular "death rates" that certain manga readers perceive through, or do we?
How many Naruto fans died since it released in the year 1999?
How many Gantz fans died since it released in the year 2000?
How many One Piece fans died since it released in 1997? The mangaka stated it will continue another 20 years extra. How many fans will die within those years?
Sure there will be fans that have died (and will die) without knowing what will happen in the next issue of JUMP comics, but I believe that in 100 years JUMP will release a better masterpiece than Naruto, Berserk, One Piece, etc. - and we will all be dead by then.
He is working so much and yet his releases are slow. Thats quite a paradox
Not really. I think that he's being allowed to work at his own pace to make the best art/story possible. Hakusensha seems to allow it, and Berserk still sells, so I think both parties are happy.
I do believe he is milking Berserk AND taking his time to make the story and art perfect. It's been said that there is another 15-20 years left of Berserk; let's just hope that he completes it in that time-frame.
15 years is too long...
Too many fans will die before then.
