WOW. Just WOW. Does any one. any other mangaka, even come close to Miura when art-work is considered?
No wonder he doesnt use assistants, cause he’d have to level down , hugely, for the sake of uniformity
I just want to thank uncempt for the translation on Berserk, particularly his work on the coloured pages. God knows how much I pestered him on it. Also Mune for the great editing and for putting up with me.
Oh, can’t forget the contributions on the other projects. miyagiCE’s editing on Zetman (he puts them out on monstrous speeds), and again, uncempt for the great and smooth scripts. Also, kangxi’s speedy pace on getting a whole batch of Angel Heart for us to edit…damn, the guy’s quick!
I’m not gonna repeat myself about this chapter contents, because I’ve already said what I think about it when I was commenting the raw, but I must say something about that thing which I didn’t notice on the raw, because it was the last page maybe or because I thought it was just a random page added by some fan.
What the hell is that crap? Is that the Umino Chika’s special cover which we heard rumors about? Really? Man, that is the crappiest art about Berserk I’ve ever seen!
I actually really like the alt cover by the guest artist. It’s a throw back to old school fairytales. Which is cool in a twisted kind of way. Honestly though Berserk is only slightly darker then the original Grim’s fairytales heh.
When I read this chapter it reminded me how I loved the older chapters building up to massive battles. It’s not so bad when you actually have the chapters and can read them in one go. When I think back on those times… The quality hasn’t dropped one bit. It’s just hard to see the storytelling when it’s told so far apart.
Well, I guess its a first for me at least, but Im more happy about reading Zetman than Berserk. Both are good, but Zetman is just alot more engaging to me. Berserk is moving along to slowly, and I just don’t give a damn about it anymore.
Thanks a lot again Evil Genius for your hard work!
I totally agree with Adavanter on the pace of the manga atm. The artwork is stunning and the build up is perfect. When Volume 34 comes out we’ll see the most epic battle untill now in many beautiful double page layouts!
now that you mention it, I havn’t seen a post from Thana in a while, I believe. and if Thana did post it probably wasn’t very often.
In any case, now we wait for Berserk again but this time just until november 14th or so. The battle is getting hot and gurenburd is stil…..alive…wtf.
At least we know the might hawk demons can easily defeat the minions of ganishka, but how well and fast can griffith kill ganishka himself. Griffith knew he coudl take him on like this. He must have some sort of crazy out of the blue stratedgy, just like those times during the battle of doldrey. oh doldrey when things could have just ended simply and nobly. those were the golden years.
OMG YES YES YES. BERSERK FINALLY BACK!!! Awesome artwork Miura really knows how to do these battles and scenes of epic proportions. That last page is really just amazing. Let’s hope we get some continuous releases now, Nov 14th then 29th, twice a month I hope. WOOT WOOT! Berserk is really out!!!
Thanx alot for this one. Keep up the beautiful work.
That also goes for Biomega. Hopefully you guys will catch
up on Biomega as well… Decent quality raws of ch. 38 & 39
surfaced a few days back. Also… I hope someone will pick-up scanlating an amazing series called Mushishi which is a one-of-a-kind type manga. (unfortunately it was just left hanging…) I’m sure you’d do an amazing job on it.
A thought for future projects perhaps, that’s all…
Best of luck, with Berserk & Biomega. (I really mean that)
These mangakas are up there with Otomo, Hirohiko, Shigeno.
What a rush. I don’t know how you people think the last chapter let alone any chapter is boring if you keep the context of the whole story in your head while you are reading it. Reading Berserk is like watching a nuke being dropped.
Wait, I have to disagree that the chapter is boring, I think it’s really awesome, man. When Griffith advanced people thought that he would unleash his angels-like or holy-something, but no! He got better ones, another demons! And how Miura drew the panels just like another painting of someone in Sistine Chapel…
for the first time i’ve seen, i think the apostles didn’t look so evil when they were fighting ganishka’s minions. although they were monsters, they still kind of looked like the good guys compared to the other guys.
Guess thats the point thou isnt it? The apostles look more or less good and nice in the eyes of mortals viewing the fight. And so in their need for a saviour they cling to griffith with his messiah-complex, blinded by his goody goody appearance.
Guts and his “path” being different as they refuse to surrender to some higher power for saving and instead believe in the will of a mortal to see to his own salvation.
well i’m not gonna judge by apearances, but griffith has some crazy lookin minions of his own. Ganishka better just die fast. and how are the apostles gonna die off? there are so many of them.
And guts IS still carrying around that bejelit. something twisted this way comes.
Like Berserk² said, I think something VERY twisted is coming. I mean, I Miura wouldn’t give us the ending so soon, since he even took out one of the chapters ‘because it revealed too much too soon’. Guts wouldn’t just follow Skull Knight’s path. That’s just too… simple.
Damn it Damn it Damn it Even I practically fell out of my seat from excitement it turn out to be a really short chapter the worlk is lovely as usual but damn it was short
oh well who cares as long as i don’t have to wait another 4 months for the next one.
Griffith is sending all of his followers on a suicide mission! Since he’s the greatest thing since sliced bread, according to the apostles that follow him, why do they follow without question? What can the apostles gain from following him? I’m sure that they are only setting themselves up for a slaughter that the world has never seen. Enough bloodshed to even sway Guts opinion of the eclipse.
great artwork, but the time he took to finish this… i think he may have backed himself into a corner with his first few drawings of the blind god… or he’s been on vacation… or maybe even he doesn’t know where the series is going and he needed some time to think it out. either way, berserk is back again!
also; why not hire assistants to shade and fill non-spreads? seems like the most time-intensive stuff are things that most well trained artists could do… bah, i guess i’m just impatient.
@HellToast, I have to agree that somethign twisted is coming up. Seriously, the last time we left off with guts was that huge battle on the ocean and then they got on the boat toward who knows where. alot has happened with him and guts needs a break, which only meens it is a break for something gigantic waiting to happen. Like you said Hell Toast, what we know is all too simple.
@71 yeah that might explain my stability
@76: Yeah yeah yeah, Ganishka gave that long winded speech about ascending and shit, but he is still lower than a “God”. Yeah, they are on different scales now, but I believe that Femto, THE MAN, reincarnated himself with a a little book called Fate: For Dummies. Damn, guy, are you saying that Griffith’s unrelenting domination of Midland and the subsequent actions taken by the apostle Ganishka weren’t foreseen by Femto/Griffith? Honestly, I think that Femto is going suicide all of the apostles then take out Ganishka in a one attack (or die himself, according to you.) After all, “the world is rotten; it must be changed” was the last thought of the egg that granted life to Caskas son, Femto, and will eventually realize Guts ambition to see the apostles disappear. Guts just wants to live his life at ease with friends and Caska. erm, that’s all.
I don’t usually comment, but I love this group’s scanlations and the way the comics get edited. Thanks.
I looked on Wikipedia recently and came across a list of demons. I don’t remember what chapters anymore (it’s been so long!!), but is that egg thing with the face behelit or beherit? There is a demon named beherit though…
“TheHappiestGuyInSpringfield Says: >Damn, guy, are you saying that Griffith’s unrelenting domination of Midland and the subsequent actions taken by the apostle Ganishka weren’t foreseen by Femto/Griffith”
Well… i never said that!but in my opinion no- they were not. Despite having great powers the godhand don’t posses the power to look into the future. (for example they were suprised to see guts during the snail baron party or by the SK during griffiths eclipse)
“Honestly, I think that Femto is going suicide all of the apostles then take out Ganishka in a one attack”
that would be the most reasonable thing to do if you wanted to become king and not to be seen by your subjects as a freaky deamon from another demention BUT i’m not sure if miura is going to do it the simple way.
“(or die himself, according to you.) ” where the hell did you get an idea that i said such a thing??
it’s been a year and nothing really exciting has come up in this manga. but i’ve got my hopes that miura will end this fight in some wicked plot twist that we would never see coming. (hopefully. i’ve been wrong before)
hahaha ultra lucky that would be an awesome cake. I should have thought of that before.
And 500 page chapter would be awesome. You know how killer that would be? So much would be explaine dand so much would happen. That is my dream! Get this over wiiiiiith!
