Guts, le guerrier noir, promène son imposante silhouette de routes en villages. Sur son passage, les cadavres s'amoncellent et il laisse derrière lui des torrents de sang. Le corps vêtu de noir, il porte sur son dos une épée aussi haute qu'un homme. Sur son cou, une marque mystérieuse le condamne à être poursuivi jour et nuit par des démons. Puck, l'elfe facétieux, croise ...more

Next volumes are finally the Golden Age Arc!

For non-manga readers, here is some information about reading manga
They usually have one huge plot but different story lines usually leading up to it. They are usually short like one volume at a time. They are called arcs.
The one I am referring to it is what they adapted into an anime and film series.

Guts discovers the Count's true identity. Puck is given as a gift to a mysterious girl locked away in a tower.

I'm surprised by how much I enjoy Berserk. It lacks that slapstick stupidity I dislike so much in later manga. I'm not a big art person normally, but I love the art in Berserk.

Unlike the series and the OVA, the story is kinda slow, but readable since I wanna find out some of the story arcs the animation missed out. Though the pace is slow, the action in the pages compensates for it. The panel details and layout are terrific. The degree of violence still remains shocking. Now I'm starting to understand the original story was meant to be a fantasy. I'm glad they took that off from the animation and made it more subtle.

Recommends it for: Los mismos que al #1
Recommended to Federiken by: El #1
Mantiene el nivel del #1 y por momentos hasta lo supera, pero queda con el mismo puntaje porque taaaarda en avanzar la historia y ni siquiera está la saga completa (de hecho, termina en el #4 recién). La edición es parecida a la del tomo anterior pero con menos pifiadas. Ahora me termino el 3 que quiero saber qué cuernos pasa con la hija del Conde.

First, see my review for vol. 1.

Next, yeah, pretty much more of that. Vol. 2 picks up after the cliffhanger of the first and leaves off at another cliffhanger but with the same bad dude continuing through this entire volume and into the next.

Despite hearing lots of people rave about how excellent the art is in Berserk, I've yet to be impressed. So far, everything about Berserk seems pretty standard of manga in general.

Speaking of, like most manga, this one is really hard to read because of the art. Actions are unclear and it's difficult to follow along. There's so much emphasis on filling the page that impedes the ability to tell a story.

Maybe because it's been years since I've read manga and I've gotten used to the way Western com

I thought I would get easily annoyed by Puck, but his role in explaining the world of Berserk is so important. He provides a nice distraction from the unsettling horror that Guts fights in order to help the reader get a more human perspective. The exploration of the behelits is getting more and more interesting and it still really feels like I'm experiencing this epic work for the first time.

Berserk, Vol. 2 picks up right from the end of the first volume where Guts discovers a Behelit in Vargas' possession. This strange multi-faceted object's connection with the Five Members of the Godhand is surely to bring more demonic doom in the next few volumes. It certainly has brought plenty of destruction already in the form of the porcine Count.

This volume is full of bloody violence as Guts annihilates the demons with the ever-devoted Puck by his side. There is one heartbreakin

Read all this volume in one go. Amazing hearing that Berserk is still going. Miura-sensei keep those volumes coming!

I don't know if I'll continue reading the series. The main character is so unlikeable it's off putting.

The good old manga was picked up for the season. The blood is flowing, the carnage was almost on every second page as Guts, the black swordsman, made his way trough the country. He saved little Elf named Puck, who became his unwanted but devoted companion and one would say he was making Guts remembering that there is something more then gutting random people, monsters and accidentally some little girls.

This Miura has his fascination with morbidity. But it does present some not-often seen material. The artwork still isn't consistent. Some things are just drawn plain badly. Other frames however are really good. Puck is drawn especially well, bringing some humor to all this darkness. But I can see the ideas here developing into an interesting story (the brand, the 5 men of the apocalypse).

Oulala, que de violence !
Ici, Guts combat un baron qui est possédé par un démon, et quelques soldats hors du commun par leurs dimensions.
Heureusement, avec son épée digne de Stormbringer, il les découpe tous plus ou moins en tranche.
Bref, c'est ridicule, c'est hyper-violent, c'est grotesquement surfait, mais je trouve ce truc très distrayant.

Honestamente lo leí volando, casi como un trámite. La trama tarda demasiado en desarrollarse, y por muy geniales que sean las escenas de batalla y Gatts dando estocadas con su monstruosa espada, su repetitividad se torna tediosa. Aún así continúo porque tengo entendido que este manga se crece muchísimo a medida que se avanza en la historia.

Here the manga gets a little more serialized, and drops the "Demon Of The Chapter" aspect of the story. For that matter, it also fleshes out the characters a little more - so while the villain of this volume, The Count, is certainly monstrous, he does have his humanizing elements.
