Thanks man.

Honestly, why even care at this point? If you read the manga from beginning to the latest one, it's completely different now. The grimdark, bleak tone is almost completely gone, the character designs have even completely changed -Guts looks like a male fashion model, and the women all like like something out of a cartoon.
>>
>>151750074
I stopped reading it years and years ago. Even before the boatserk. It kinda lost it's charm when Guts started recruiting his jrpg party.
>>

What do you think this is

You know what I mean. Compare the older look of Farnese to the am I kawaii uguu~ face she has now.

anyone knows when the next chapter is updated?

That feel when Berserk is older than Guts.

Fixed that for you, because that's the prerequisite for shitty opinions like yours. The only people who complain about Berserk now are people who got into it in the past few years and speed read the whole thing in one session.

I've been reading it since before Kushans invaded.
Only the most blind fanboy would be apologetic for it at this stage.

I doubt it. Berserk has spanned close to 30 years now, and the way it has progressed has made perfect sense. Change is good. The world of Berserk has changed, developed and expanded beyond what it once was.

Expectations of it being nothing but a dark fantasy are delusions fueled by the overstimulating eclipse scene. Before that scene, the "grimdark" or "bleak tone" just came and went, it wasn't a constant; there was already silliness found in Puck; and there are still aspects of current Berserk, albeit subtle, that are dark. Falconia's heavenly appearance is a cynical pretense to the entire tragedy. The only means of defeating God Hand and the Neo Band is magic — in layman's terms, the order of the world and the powers that be are overcome only by the deepest deceptions of the spirit. There is a lot at work in Berserk still that people like you downplay, and I tend to think it's because you rushed through it and didn't take the time to follow what was actually happening.

Also, even if you just don't like the change in vibe, it's still INTERESTING. It's a very interesting fantasy. The entirety of Ganishka, Fantasia, and Falconia is fascinating and bizarre. At surface value the sea god may have seemed pointless but there are big implications in that entire encounter that we are bound to learn more about later on. The elf island's existence is interesting and there is still so much up in the air that we're waiting to learn more about or see a conclusion to. Miura is still building a rich world in Berserk even if Puck isn't waving his elf shota ass in your face every other page anymore.

not nearly interesting enough to make up for all the downtime

>Expectations of it being nothing but a dark fantasy are delusions fueled by the overstimulating eclipse scene
Are you serious? It maintains being relentlessly dark until sometime after the goblin arc.
I'm not downplaying anything. You even admit the non-dark elements were subtle.
If you like that it's a cartoony parody of itself, fine. I don't. I can read a number of other light-hearted titles already, fantasy or otherwise.
>>
>>151749397
Berserk is like an older brother by 3 years, yet I'm probably gonna die before him.
>>
>>151749397
I feel like the fantasy rpg elements will dim down and we'll get the gritty darksouls Berserk back once we leave Fagwizard island

Hopefully

Completely caught up with it yesterday. I have to say, I really like it, but I wish that it would make a small return to it's more lonely and solemn nature. I like the cast, so I wouldn't say kill them all off, but at least for just a bit make Guts all alone with just Puck, because I really liked the dynamic they both had. Maybe they could get seperated from the group somehow? Though I don't see that happening. Also, I'm 50/50 on the Berserker Armour. I mean sure, it looks cool, but did we really need an "ultimate rage mode" when Guts is already in that state constantly? Also, it makes the impact of though fights not as big, because you know he'll win no matter what because he has that armour on, and when he's with Schierke.
>>
>>151757548
I felt like Isidoro was wasted potential. I was hoping he'd be a character we'd see grow, but he's just Puck's comic relief sidekick.
>>
>>151757816
Same here. We are getting small glints of his progression, but you are right, for the majority of the time he's just fucking around with Puck, and that's it.
>>
>>151749397
>It could have been finished by now if Miura didn't go on hiatus after every chapter
>>
Did they go on hiatus again ?
Chapter 347 was released late September.
>>
>>151749397
Time to unplug him..

Seriously, I have no hopes of ever reading the end of it (not even a rushed one) since the author is a perv idommaster autist.

I'd prefer waiting for Bastard!! then berserk
>>
>>151750074

Feel the same here. Aside the slan fight, everything after the eclipse was not worth it for me..
>>
>>151758302
Yeah, next chapter is early 2017.

>>151757548
>Also, I'm 50/50 on the Berserker Armour. I mean sure, it looks cool, but did we really need an "ultimate rage mode" when Guts is already in that state constantly?
It gave a potential explanation as to how Skull Knight reached the form he's in now, and it also adds to the sense of power that the Neo Band of the Hawk have. They are more refined and more powerful than the previously grotesque apostle forms, and far too superhuman for even Guts to match with his normal strength.

The armor was like an extension of his rage to me, a better upgrade to his strength then something like some inherent power. Blind rage that makes him invincible but hurts himself and makes it hard for him to distinguish between friend or foe.

What are the chances of it ending on its 30th anniversary? I got a feeling Miura is starting to wrap things up. Maybe they will want it to end together with the 3Dime which won't take too long to catch up at this rate anyway .

Bastard isn't going to resume anon, just like Black Lagoon, Vagabond, Addicted to Curry and a few others.

The author is extremely slow and has shown zero signs of resuming the series. It's a lost cause.

Why was Golden Age arc the undisputed best? I really felt like I was reading something magical going through it. Nothing before and since has come close in quality to it.

The only reason dragon fucked Guts was because Slan gave him some bulshit astral injurie and he had no time to even recover.
I mean he could probably have had a good fight with him if it wasn't for that.

It could have used less gore and rape and egde imo. I still think the devil dogs chapters are some of the most boring in the series. But for the most part, the dark tone was well done, consistent, and above and beyond that, and what made it great, was that it had great characters and a great story. It just needed to have ended a long time ago, is all.
