    #49 You won’t find many Miura apologists here, mostly people just stick around because why not. As for me, I’ve came to dislike the current direction of Berserk long ago, and don’t think that a logical and satisfying conclusion is possible. Although, there’s always an off chance of a surprise, and art is still pretty good, so there’s that.

    Thanks Mistyman, again I’m sorry bout the long rant, but I just feel that this could be easily fixed. I mean, if he would just break down and hire some friken artists to do the grunt work for him while he supervises, we could see a chapter or 2 a month! But instead, he is dominated by both stubbornness and LAZINESS. He adamantly refuses to let anyone help him with his art, but at the same time he really just doesn’t give enough of a crap to update at a decent schedule.

    I used to admire how he drew his own story, and how beautiful the art was, but now I feel its this series’ biggest downfall. Him refusing to let anyone help him on this daunting project will likely be what ensures it never has a conclusion, and what drives his fans away. At this point in time, I wonder if Berserk fans were asked “Which would you prefer? 1-2 chapters a year of Berserk with beautiful art? Or 50 chapters a year with slightly lower quality art?” I wonder if they would still pick this painfully slow path of releases the story currently has….

  3. Fan Says:

    I completely agree with Aizen on this issue. Hopefully Miura will change his mind with his senility 🙂

  4. Mistyman Says:

    I don’t think that lazines is the main problem, he just isn’t as inspired as he used to be. Also, he does have help with the art, maybe you’ve notices how it always says “KM with studio GAGA”.

    Guys, it’s pretty clear Berserk is just not Miura’s full time job anymore. I have no idea what the guy does with his days – for all I know he’s a used car sales man or a carpenter or a farmer or just retired… But at this point I think it’s pretty obvious any Berserk chapter being released is the exception rather then the rule and there is no schedule per say Miura is keeping to.

    So, just take it easy. I’m sure Miura is.

    Chapter 336 out August 8th.

  7. Gnar Says:

    Miura needs a muse… Or a shot in a knee.

    Are you guys having tracker issues? I’ve been trying to download one of your old releases and getting the “No connection can be made because the target machine actively refused it” message for your tracker…

  9. Sandwich Says:

    New episode coming August 8th 2014.

  10. Tracker Says:

    Just to chime in with Anonymous above, I’m having the same problems with the tracker.

    Just what I came here to ask.

  12. LookAtWaffles Says:

    I recently went back to the very beginning and reread the entire manga all the way through the latest issue “Divine Right.” I remembered why I love Berserk and why I’ve checked this site regularly for an update. I hated this current arc as it came out, but reading back through it makes more sense, even if it doesn’t seem necessary.

    The sitcom-esque reappearances of characters like the hooker with the heart of gold from the inquisitor-asshole arc was lost on me because of the behemoth scope of this story. That said, upon re-evaluation I’m interested again, but I’m still annoyed at how molasses-slow the story is going.

  13. Nothere Says:

    I’ve been following Berserk for years and lost count at around 30~ times when it comes to fully rereading it.
    Imagine how I feel.

  14. Voievode Says:

    This month? I’m not surprised at all.

    Anyway, I don’t think I’ve been waiting for Berserk like I used to. I just come in here out of habit I guess. I felt like this manga was heading a bad direction back when Miura introduced the little witch, the kid and the retarded, 4th wall breaking jokes made by goddamn elves. He decided to change the audience, right now it’s the people who prefer classic “muh friendship” action shows, unfitting gags and cringeworthy fanservice/innuendos, usually involving lolis, like in that Gigantomakhia oneshot.

    Any news regardling the translation of next Zetman chapter?

    Guys, don’t be in such a rush. You know the sun will supernova the moment Miura draws Gut’s boot touching Elfhelm.

  16. annarek Says:

    Unfortunally that wont happen… cause our sun is too small to go supernova. it will just be a red giant and then fade… BUT i see what you did there… you mean guts boot will never touch Elfhelm

  17. doomed Says:

    What if miura goes supernova?

    Exactly my feelings. I always complain about the current arc, always think it’s being worse than those before, but when I reread the whole thing, it fits right in.
    And the artwork only gets better.
    I hate the morosity of the releases, but I still love Berserk. It is the best manga I’ve ever read and I’ll stick to it ’till the end, for better or for worse.

  20. Aizen2468 Says:

    I think it’s more that everyone is/was so excited for Elfhelm back when it was mentioned back in like……actually, I don’t remember the exact date it was mentioned XD Seems like 5-7 years or something lol! And that excitement combined with the agonizingly slow release dates makes it feel like every arc that stands in the timeline between the mentioning of Elfhelm and ACTUALLY getting to Elfhelm seems kinda like filler sadly. But if you take the idea of Elfhelm out of the equation and forget the horrible horrible release times…….the arcs are actually pretty cool ^^ ……mostly. I personally could not stand the boyhood arc, even though I liked the sea god one.

    So yea, when you reread the story, you don’t have that expectation of “When the **** are we getting to Elfhelm” mindset while reading usually, and also you aren’t experiencing the constant hiatuses. But each time a new chapter comes out……I can almost guarantee people are going through them with the hopes that they somehow progress the story closer to Elfhelm. And sadly, can’t remember the last time it actually friken did. So…..disappointment abound and hopes dashed every time a new chapter comes out

    Well, i probably have to say i was lucky to get into the Berserk manga so late. I just started it in 2012. So basically i was able to read the whole thing up until now in one go. Well, except for the giant 2013 hiatus of course, lol. But i’m far faaaar away from a point where i would say “uh, why is there no progress, where is Elfhelm, blahblahblah”

    For me, this whole manga is basicaly one giant tornado of emotions, willpower, anger, vengeance, even love and friendship, slowly but steadily marching forward, on its way to kill a living god and prove all these f*cking divine beings wrong on their assumptions about humanity and destiny. A mere human is going to shake the pillars of the world. There is no place for disappointment.

    And just to remind you, the last Elfhelm progress we had was in the last chapter of the seagod arc, when the mermaids promised to guide them there, because they know the way.

  22. Joe H Says:


    I can relate. I started reading the manga in 2003. In that time, we’ve only gotten 2 real arcs (Vritanis and the Sea God) and what appears to be the beginning of a third. I used to be a pretty hardcore fan of the series, though I’ve gotten more casual over the years.

    I thought the release rate was slow then, but it’s absolutely pathetic now. My interest in the series has waned to the point where I just forget about it in 6 month spans, then pop into evil_genius in the hope one chapter was released.

    About the “where is Elfhelm” business, any long time readers remember how long the wait was during the Vritanis arc on “when will Guts & Co get to the boat”? That took at least two years.

    I’m not really impatient about getting to Elfhelm persay. More I’m impatient in something to happen that will that will get me more interested in what is going on in the series. Namely Guts himself since the end of the Flora/Enoch Village arc–he just seems to get more bland as the series goes on.

    Have been struggling more to maintain interest since Vritanis, which ended what…way back in 2007? Though this new Griffith arc is somewhat more interesting…still, I’ll probably lay off this site until the end of this year and hopefully be able to enjoy a small batch of upcoming chapters.

    @Z as much as I agree with you, EG provides a free service, which not many other people out there are providing. Be patient, young padawon. We’ll get it soon enough.

  25. DrPepperPro Says:

    Chapter will be released in probably 12-24 hours or so.

  26. DellyC0m Says:

    Thanks to all EG stuff for their effort

  27. DerpDerp Says:

    Hey EG, I just wanted to personally thank you for your ardent crusade in the scanning of these brilliant mangas, especially Berserk, I can’t imagine how the process goes down, and I really appreciate it; I’m sure many others do as well. I got a little curious the other day and tried to find other scanlators online, just to see. So far, EG is the only one working on Berserk, or at least, I couldn’t find any others. Additionally, the scans are typically good to exceptional quality with very, very good translations for a (free) scanlating site.
    So yeah, thanks guys, and I hope you keep it up. When I have a little more money in my pocket I’ll make sure to donate. Berserk (and Zetman I’ve heard) is a great story, and it’s phenomenal that there are people like you all bringing it across the language/cultural/geographical barriers.
