I just read through it all and wow, just wow! Such a deep and amazing story if you can get past how dark and gruesome it is... It gets so deep and philosophical for how violent of a story it is. The characters are some of the greatest I have ever come across and not only that but have some of the best personal growth throughout the story I have ever seen. Really beautiful overall. For those not familiar with it Berserk is a story about a man named Guts, he has one of the harshest and brutal upbringings imaginable which turns him into a battle hardened man with no attachment to life. But the story is about him overcoming that, finding companions he wants to protect and trying to avenge the ones he couldn't. It has some very intense social commentary about government and religion amongst other things and the best and worst sides of humanity. My favorite part personally are the mythical elements though. For one the story revolves around demons, not just some typical demons either but some of the gnarliest and most grizzly depicted demons I have ever seen. The art is as beautiful as it is disgusting and appalling at times. Not only that but many mythical creatures show up such as kelpie, elfs, elemental, spirits, trolls and ogres as well as mermaids/ merrow and a kraken like sea god. So it depicts a lot of good and evil mythical stuff. My other favorite part is the magic, it gets fairly into sorcery/ witchcraft with a very beautiful and unique take on it at least compared to a lot of common stories. Both good and evil magics. The most intriguing part of all to me are the inter dimensional aspects. It talks about the spirit/ astral realm which sorcerers must leave their physical body to traverse in order to use strong magic. There are these demons called the "god hand" which are sort of interdimensional entities that can only manifest on earth physically with special conditions, but they influence the minds of weak people and seem to be plotting to destroy the world or overrun it with demons at least. Anyways I hope I didn't give to much away, the plot is really amazing though. If you can get past how violent it is it's very worth it. I haven't come across such an epic and unique tale in a long time. Also it is still coming out, issue 348 is next and should be announced soon!
