About this deal

But that seems to be something reserved for male characters in Berserk, not women, the final and most obvious indictment. However, Bookswagon reserves the right to remove or to refuse to post any submission to the extent authorized by law. Farnese and Serpico are fascinating characters, Azan is a cool guy and the shadiness of the group as a whole raises a lot of red flags.

I would strongly recommend this series for hardcore fans of fantasy and horror, so long as you're prepared to be traumatized for life by the disgustingly harsh nature of its content. After regaining his compassion and conviction, Guts sets out to find the missing Caska, the woman who set the spark on his self-destructive quest in the first place to try and redeem his life from all the horrible things he’s been through and all the detestable things he’s done in the name of love. As if the deadly plague, religious crusades and rampant demon invasions weren’t enough, Emperor Ganishka of the Kushan Empire is making life an even greater hell for anyone that’s in his path of conquest.With a new band of loyal companions at his side, Guts begins to learn how to trust, grow and love as he once did during his time in the Band of the Hawk while struggling to reconcile with his inner darkness and his hatred towards his former friend Griffith.

After an incredible display of war, romance, political drama, moral and philosophical musings, heartbreaking trauma, fascinating worldbuilding and chilling foreshadowing, the Golden Age arc ends on the single most shocking, depressing and mind blowing finale I’ve ever witnessed in a fantasy story. O livro é bem bom, da pra sentir a qualidade das páginas, o acabamento é bem bom, na minha opinião o livro 14 e 15 achei umas partes bem chatas mas o 16 já é uma completa loucura, então esperar vale a pena. I want the first manga version I read to be good and I’m sure it is but is that arc an exciting and renowned one? While attending college at Nihon University, in 1988, Kentaro Miura debuted a 48-page manga known as Berserk Prototype , an introduction to the current Berserk fantasy world.After a life of grief and trauma, Guts reluctantly joins Griffith on his quest to attain his own kingdom while simultaneously struggling to come to terms with his own identity. The first arc the black swordsman gets bridged and we truly see why Guts has been solidified with Anger,rage and solitude. Griffith, the mutilated leader of the Band of the Hawk mercenaries, offers up his command to the demon lords of the Godhand in exchange for a rebirth into beauty—and terrible power. It’s not that it’s bad, it’s just extremely different from the rest of the series and it’s set in the middle of the story rather than the beginning. Firstly it took me a while to get through this one as this deluxe is split in two, the first half finished the golden age arc with the shocking and brutal final act that was the eclipse, this moment had some ballsy moments but they all truly pay off in a messed up kinda way.

Berserk is infamous for being the most gratuitously dark, brutal, shocking and depressing fantasy story ever written, but it is also rich with intense human emotion, philosophical depth, perseverance through unimaginable suffering and horrifyingly realistic depictions of psychological trauma. The definitions of good an evil are blurred beyond recognition, the heroes are just as flawed and capable of terrible deeds as the villains. A grimdark epic with compelling protagonists, stomach-churning horror, heartbreaking drama and a lovecraftian sense of metaphysical worldbuilding that's as fascinating as it is terrifying. I've always loved how Jill and Puck brought Guts's humanity back to the surface after being stuck in such a devastating and harmful state for so long.With the longest lasting sexual assault in terms of page length, I was left feeling SUPER uncomfortable with an intense feel of despair. Collects Berserk volumes 13-15, and includes Berserk Prototype , the original Berserk submission story. The second half starts the next arc conviction with the lost children chapters, it’s definitely a more lighter story for Berserk standards that is, it definitely feels like Miura pushed some more comedic moments with Pucks character, and while I don’t mind these I hope it doesn’t overstay it’s welcome. Except now, we've got all the emotional weight behind just why Guts is going around slaying monsters, and not giving a damn about anybody.
