Berserk 365 & 366

  » Posted June 23rd, 2022 by LordMune

With Berserk’s rebirth, we’re taking the opportunity to try out some new things:

* On title pages we’ll be (more consistently) rendering the names of the people that make up Studio Gaga in English, to properly credit them.
* You’ll also notice that these are “Episodes” 365 and 366 — aligning us with the more official Arc/Chapter/Episode nomenclature used by the publisher to divide up Berserk’s storyline. So this release is the Fantasia Arc, Elf Island Chapter, Waning Moon’s Quietude and Eye of the Maelstrom Episodes.
* Finally, we’re moving on to a new typeface. It has a bit more personality and flexibility, while retaining the familiar feel and all of the readability we know and love from the old standard Wild Words.

Please support Mori Kouji and Studio Gaga in upholding Miura’s legacy! Buy the licensed volumes, and consider purchasing current issues of Young Animal directly; either physically from Amazon.jp or digitally from Hakusensha.

Berserk will continue.

  » Posted June 9th, 2022 by DrPepperPro

Berserk will continue on June 24th with Kouji Mori supervising the project
More info here.

We will see through translating the Fantasia arc (the next six chapters). After that we’ll see how it goes and what we’re feeling like.

Berserk may not continue on the same, and it may not satisfy the same as if Miura were at the helm, impressing with his singular vision. Still we greatly look forward to the future of his work, as elucidated by his friends and coworkers. It makes me think of an ancient oral tradition, passed down from the mind of its creator, through word of mouth, and eventually set firm on paper. Only here the timeframe is shortened, and we have Mori and the staff of Studio Gaga and Hakusensha to thank for bringing the remainder of this tale to life.

You are loved, Kentarou Miura. Thank you for Berserk, and the world of imagination you shared with us all.


Also if you haven’t seen it, here is Kouji’s Mori oneshot about his relationship with Miura and manga: link

Edit:
You all have left many beautiful comments about Miura’s passing. It means a lot to be able to read what everyone else is thinking during this time, so thank you. Navigating to the earlier pages of comments is broken right now, so here are links to see them:

There is also a thread on the forum.

Berserk #345 v2, and the beginning of collaboration

  » Posted July 30th, 2016 by DrPepperPro

Hello, fans of Berserk, the good manga.
As some of you may have already noticed, the website/group MangaStream has gotten into the Berserk game, in collaboration with us at Evil_Genius.

So what does this mean for you, the readers?
Hopefully, speedier releases in higher quality than you have been seeing recently. Big ups to the cool guys and gals at MangaStream for making this possible – now Miura’s glacial pace is the only thing holding us back!

So what does this mean for Evil_Genius?
For us, it means some slight adjustments:

Raws: MangaStream’s dedicated raw provider will start scanning glorious high-resolution Berserk as soon as Young Animal magazine hits store shelves in Japan. We should no longer have to wait for the digital release or struggle with blurry phone cam photos of manga pages surreptitiously shot in darkened rooms.

Translation: I (LordMune) will continue to translate as I have been doing for the past half-decade. Hampera Junichi, a fairly recent addition to the EG team, will continue to TL-check and ensure that nothing is lost in translation.

Editing: Our insanely hard-working editor-in-residence (DrPepperPro) will be contributing to the editing process together with MangaStream’s cleaners, redrawers and typesetters (and continue to be my sounding board for polishing the text).

Releases: We will continue to provide torrents here as we always have. In addition, the most recent chapter(s) will be available, in full quality, at MangaStream’s website for convenient online reading.

The exact details have yet to be worked out, but as a sort of pilot release a much higher-resolution “v2” of Berserk #345 is now available as a torrent and on MangaStream’s online reader. Font usage and other minor stylistic things are likely to change to better conform to traditional EG standards come next chapter.

Evil_Genius operative for over a decade

EG and MS, in it to win it, let’s go, surf’s up, chapter 345v2 looking good
