Yay. Also make sure to read the note on the last page.


Also we need an editor for Angel Heart. We have about 30 chapters translated and they need your Photoshopping help.

  3. Twincester Says:

    Huzzah for Berserk! Thanks a bunch.

  4. Toan Says:

    It’s almost like a dream to see that Berserk has a new chapter. :’) Thanks guys, you rock!

  5. Mormegil Says:

    Thank you! Berserk is back!

    …see you guys in May.

  6. ev0ker Says:

    Thank you!

  7. Kain Says:

    Good Lord, I can’t believe my eyes… maybe today is the first day I buy a lottery ticket!

    Thanks a lot!

  8. Boo Says:

    Awesome thanks for Berserk!

    Question, why Falcon over Hawk? Does the manga make a difference between these two words? I’m just curious since Griffith has always been associated as the Hawk.

  9. pantaril Says:

    Good to see some progress in Berserk even if it’s from the Griffith part of the story. His new Falconia capital looks nice and cozy but the rest of the world is apparently fucked up by attacks of monsters and people are fleeing to take refuge under Griffiths protection which makes him look like a savior. It would be hard for Guts to oppose him under those circumstances. If he wants to save the world he needs to undo the real-spiritual world merging after he kills Griffith. Maybe he’d get some help with this from the elves.

    Next chapter in May 23rd, i hope Miura will keep at least such release speed for foreseeable future:)

  10. ant Says:

    Thanks. ^^

  11. LEM Says:

    I will wait Six months to read this, for two reasons. 1 to protest and 2 to skip all the time till the next one.
    Forget about it, i am reading now. Lol. Thanks guys, your hard work is much appreciated. Best regards from Brazil.

  12. LordMune Says:

    @8 Boo: As stated in the translation note, the original Japanese word is used to refer both to falcons and hawks. It was impossible to tell which was intended (“hawk” was picked arbitrarily back in the day) until phonetic English-language references appeared in the manga, first with the “Millenium Falcon Arc” and later with the city name “Falconia”.

  13. Leo Says:

    After all this time he can’t give us more than 19 pages… I don’t want to want to read Berserk anymore T_T

  14. Rez Says:

    Great chapter, thank you!

    I don’t know if I can get used to “Band of The Falcon” though.

  15. Boo Says:


    That makes a lot of sense, thank you for clearing it up. Have to agree wtih Rez though, phonetically Band of the Falcon sounds less appealing but that may be nostalgia talking.

    Regardless, Lord Falcon it is!

  16. MAS Says:

    Thank you!

  17. Boo Says:

    Oh actually I thought of something but can’t check because I never watched it.

    Does the movies or anime of Berserk refer to the band as Band of the Hawk or Band of the Falcon? I don’t mean translations by the way, I mean when they pronounce the word.

    This only applies if the title is not completely in Japanese, kinda like how Griffith is probably not a Japanese name or something that can be translated into other words, like how Ichigo is Strawberry despite being a name.

    I’m just wondering since it is a more western series so maybe how they said it in the dubs is a more ‘canon’ version than simply guessing which word was intended.

    FYI not sure if this matters, but Dark Horse apparently is still using Band of the Hawk so maybe they have insider knowledge on canon name usage.

  18. KaitoKief Says:

    Thanks for the chapters

  19. LordMune Says:

    I can pretty much guarantee you that Dark Horse had no special insider knowledge regarding Falcon/Hawk. They stuck with Band of the Hawk because it had been previously established, as a way to avoid fan outrage. This is further evidenced by “band” by no means being the obvious translation of 団. Troupe, company or even group are equally accurate translations.

    We won’t be entertaining this argument for much longer, and the change is final. But if anyone is interested, here are the offending terms in Japanese (with furigana in parenthesis, where applicable), their phonetic pronunciation, and English translation:

    taka no dan
    Band of the Falcon

    sennen teikoku no taka (mireniamu farukon)
    Falcon of the Thousand-Year Empire (Millenium Falcon)

    takato (farukonia)
    Falcon Capital (Falconia)

  20. Kalie_Ma Says:

    It’s great that you guys are adopting more accurate names. But what about the whole chapter ≠ episode thing ?

  21. Majin Says:

    I feel like those fools down in Falcon place, is this real…Berserk, did i read it!!??
    Couldnt be much longer than that for story sake, let’s see how much it takes to fool Rickert! And then let’s go to Guts of course

    Thanks guys, indeed strange band of the falcons but good work

  22. Daichii Says:


    Thank you guys for your efforts through all these years… we’ll be with your till the end!

  23. hikarub Says:

    Well, that sucks regarding Angel Heart. I can’t believe no one’s interested in editing this manga… :(

  24. Dave Says:

    Yay. Thank you.

  25. Valja Says:

    Wait, what? There’s a new Berserk chapter and you took the time to scanlate also two Zetman chapters? That’s great!! Thank you thank you thank you <3

  26. stargood Says:

    A triple-whammy today! One Berserk and two Zetman. You guys are great. Now I just hope Miura gives us more than a chapter or two this time. That break was agonizing.

  27. kuro_ Says:

    See you next year! :3

  28. Emil Says:

    thanks guys

  29. Nexo Says:

    Wooohoooo!!!!Finally a new Berserk chapter! Shankyou!

  30. Slumber Says:


  31. geroprog Says:

    Thank you for the hard work! :)

  32. RedSamurai Says:

    As much as I’m happy to see a new chapter out, I’m saddened by the slow pace of release (not that it’s something new). At least if we had a justification on what is keeping Miura busy, it’d be great especially if it has anything to do with a new anime/ova/movie in production.

  33. Uberhuman Says:

    My love for you is like a truck … BERSERKER !

  34. JUPITER Says:

    You have translated that so quick, thank you!! you guys are fuckin awesome

  35. Casey M. Says:


    Thanks for translating this Evil_Genius. You’re my hero.

  36. Loco Says:

    What only 19 pages this is bull attack on titans gives you 40 pages

  37. Loco Says:

    this is not gonna end in my life time

  38. Aluro Says:

    Thank you very much.

  39. Dumber Says:

    w000000000000000000000, tnx!!

  40. machinegunkid Says:

    Thanks again guys for Berserk.

  41. PanosMD Says:

    God we waited so much for berserk!Next issue 2016.See ya then xD

  42. PanosMD Says:

    Just finished.May 23th…hmmmmm 23/05/2016? 😀

  43. Fendo Says:

    it’s nice to see Luca and the gals again

  44. Ghengis_John Says:

    Nice to see Luca and the old Kusharn Sorcerer again, as really liked both of them. The only problem is being back in the story means being back in danger, lol.

    Was I the only one who saw that arena and instantly thought that Guts will eventually have to fight in it?

  45. Kalie_Ma Says:

    THe last page mentions the Miura comment, but I don’t see it. The one at the very bottom of the page looks really REALLY old. What’s the actual comment…? Tahnks!

  46. DrPepperPro Says:

    Miura is saying congratulations to Chika Umino on getting the award, not about his own award that he got in the past.

  47. Andraz Says:

    Hell Yeah, a new one, but feel sad for a friend a true fan who died last month he was waiting for it, he’ll curse you Kentaro.
    Good work evil-genius

  48. Gyo Says:

    a new Berserk chapter ? the world is comming to its end

  49. Ghostlych Says:

    Interesting change from Hawks to Falcon, it is going to take a little while to get used to the change but it is overall for the better, what I am curious about though is if Miura intended for the interpretation of “taka” as Hawk during the golden age or actually had Falcon in his mind from the start.. To this we probably have only speculations.
    Thanks for this release 😀

  50. Sir J Says:

    thank you evil genius, I’ll be with you till the end!

  51. Doomroar Says:

    Thanks for the Berserk Chap!
    Now we all know that city is not safe, it is probably a concentration camp, that once full will serve as a dinner table to feed apostles and monsters, i am calling it now!

  52. Tony Says:

    Something tells me this Falconia Capital is not what it seems.
    Watch it be some sorta giant sacrificial slaughter house of
    Good read tho.

  53. Pedro Ramires Says:

    Thanks for the chapter EG!

    @tony: I think it actually is what it seems: a big city where the dream of Griffith has come true. But it really reminds me the old (the ooooold) capital, the one we just had a glimpse at the bottom of the Tower of Rebirth. So I am expecting something really, really bad to happen in there.

  54. Zorky Says:

    Miura finally awoken from his long slumber.

    This can´t be real!

    Are you fxxxxxx kidding me!

  55. re Says:

    Appreciate Zetman, thank you

  56. Nethandle Says:

    Man, I wish I could help you guys with Angel Heart but I’m kinda working on a lot right now. When I’m done with Cat’s Eye and if you still need help I’d be glad to do so.

    Thanks for Berserk and Zetman too!

  57. Hiro Says:

    Niiiiiice! thank you guys for the new chapter!!

    Now… to wait until May…

    (thanks for Zetman too ^^)

  58. Casey M. Says:

    @ Loco: You idiot, it might only be 19 pages, but each page is a goddamn work of art, you ungrateful bastard. I don’t care if it’s shorter, because it’s superb quality. Unlike Attack on Titan where, yes, it might be 40 pages, but the artwork looks like utter shit.

  59. Takezo Says:

    I think i can help you editing Angel Heart. Send me an email.

    as always, thanks you!

  60. Stick1000 Says:

    Thank you EG. I was very pleased with this chapter. Miura’s artwork is glorious. I love how deep he goes into the background and the blend of Greek and Roman architecture is beautiful. I spent several minutes on each page just gazing into the depth. I look forward to Richert meeting with Griffith, I can’t even venture a guess to what will go down. I thought Luca looked and sounded familiar but its been so long I don’t remember her. The kushans were a neat surprise.

  61. AllFatherStarr Says:

    Falconia has mass destruction written all over it. I personally hope its at Guts’ hands

  62. asdf Says:

    Looks like author wont finish story in his lifetime ._.

  63. Jaakko Says:

    100 chapters later Guts will come, defeat all and everyone and rename Falconia into Hawkistan or whatever. Justice will prevail =)
    That’s the plot for Falconia ark =)
    Thanks a lot, Evil Genius! Great work as usual!

  64. gatsu Says:

    Thanks a lot EG.. you guys are the best.

  65. Sandwich Says:

    The gif for this perfectly summarizes how I felt when I read this chapter. Thanks EG for getting this out so quick. Feels good to finally see more Berserk.

  66. phillipRT Says:

    I finally read it…roll on May

  67. cloudiks Says:

    Thanks EG!
    Pfiou, we waited so damn long for this chapter.
    I hope the next ones’ll be this year :p

  68. Gustav M Says:

    SPLASH PAGE after SPLASH PAGE. It’s actually worth the wait. Never was that fond of Gigantomakhia

  69. elemhunter Says:

    Could I ask where you got your raws for Mugentou (a project you did the first chapter of a long time ago)? Your chapter seems to be in better quality that what is posted on the website:

    Is that just because of cleaning? I’m interested in getting the rest done. Thank you.

  70. DrPepperPro Says:

    The current online reader is 756px height. The old one was around 900px.

    Our release of chapter 1 is 1165 height because I full-screened my browser to screenshot the raw (couldn’t right-click save on the old viewer). This resulted in blurring and some weird artifacting (look specifically at the speech bubbles, they look jagged instead of nice and smooth like in the current online reader).

    It’s possible that their website still has the ~900px images hidden somewhere, but probably not, so you’re stuck with that 756px ones. I think they’re better than our release, just harder to read/typeset.

  71. Gnar Says:

    Apparently, a new Idolmaster has been released in Japan…
