Next Berserk Chapter Debuts September 26th!



According to Young Animal magazine, the next chapter of Kentarou Miura’s long-running manga Berserk is set to return on September 26.

Miura, infamous among fans of Berserk for taking frequent breaks, took another hiatus from Berserk this year by writing a new manga, Gigantomakhia, which was released in a single volume in Japan this past July.

Set in a medieval Europe-inspired fantasy world, Berserk centers on the characters of Guts, an orphaned mercenary, and Griffith, the leader of a mercenary band called the Band of the Hawk. Miura premiered a prototype of Berserk in 1988, and the first volume of the manga was published on November 26, 1990 by Hakusensha in its Jets Comics collection.  In 1992, after the publication of three more volumes, Berserk began serialization in Young Animal. The series was also adapted into a twenty-five episode anime series covering the series' first story arc by Oriental Light and Magic in 1997.  A series of films was released, beginning with Berserk Golden Age Arc I: The Egg of the King on February 4, 2012, as part of an effort to adapt the entire manga series.
