Summary and Preview

Gats, known as the Black Swordsman, seeks sanctuary from the demonic forces attracted to him and his woman because of a demonic mark on their necks, and also vengeance against the man who branded him as an unholy sacrifice. Aided only by his titanic strength gained from a harsh childhood lived with mercenaries, a gigantic sword, and an iron prosthetic left hand, Gats must struggle against his bleak destiny, all the while fighting with a rage that might strip him of his humanity. Warning: This manga is for mature audiences only, since it has sexual content and graphic violence (gore, blood, rape, etc). Definitely not for the weak hearted.

Review by abuyi
this is an awesome manga.. not for minor people
i like how the manga is done.. i feel its very original and true from the artist mind and not much of to sale point of view.

one of the best fantasy war manga I've read.
once you go berserk you dont go back Permalink " "
Review by mcd693
Best manga of all time.

I think that its drastically underated and unknown because of its gore and sexual assaults. It dominates each tag(Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Horror, Tragedy) in my mind as the best in each genre.

Hands down worth the time and if Miura ever gets back into it then it will be released on time, making it more appealing to non-addicted readers.

Its recent volumes have gotten a little too epic for my taste to be honest, but the first couple of chapters are right down my alley(aka the 100 year war).

The character of guts is probably one of the simplest/best characters that i've ever had the pleasure to read about and grow to enjoy. The reader begins to associate themselves with the character and through this relationship they feel sympathic towards his struggle.

If I had to sum up Berserk in one word i'd make up a word- "Bombay"(urban dictionary that bad boy-its a good one) Permalink " "

Great story and art. Though some of the visuals (text and pictures) are a bit tough on the eyes. I find myself zooming in quite often. Permalink " "

An absolute classic, one of the best adult themed mangas out there. This one's certainly not for the kiddies! Permalink " "

Review by Roflkopt3r
Berserk might be the best work ever...
Most epic storyline imaginable - without the huge amount of obvious similarities and cliche characters many other stories suffer of. At the same time the niveau of the super detailled artworks might be unparalleled, while Miura has a great sense for epic shots as well.
Also it's rare to find such a dark fantasy universe, combined with the other qualities it's just perfect! Permalink " "
