Berserk is a sad, tragic, complex plot full of political intrigues, assassinations, betrayals, horrific monsters and gruesome deaths.

But yet the only thing I can think to say beyond that is

El fin de una época. Con este tomo se termina la etapa de Gatsu como guerrero dentro del grupo del Halcón Blanco (ahora, Fénix Blanco). Para la enorme carga dramática que trae el tomo, la verdad que me pegó más bien poco. Sigue siendo un manga de puta madre, pero este tomo-puente no me emocionó tanto como varios de los previos, aunque el final del asedio a Doldrey y cómo termina el asunto del puterío palaciego me parecieron buenísimos. Ya sé algo de lo que pasa en el tomo siguiente, pero el ...more

Como regalo de navidad conseguí este fabuloso tomo editado por EDT en España.

Ya lo había leído online y tenerlo al fin en físico ha sido una gran alegría.

En Berserk esta ambientado en un mundo medieval. La historia gira en torno a Guts un mercenario que no ha conocido otra cosa que matanzas en batallas desde que era niño, y Griffith otro mercenario con el sueño de ser rey y con la inteligencia y la habilidad para conseguir semejante meta. Sus destinos se cruzan y empieza a formarse una amistad

Now we're getting somewhere! With the fall of Doldrey and the neighboring Kingdom of Tudor surrender, Midland is finally at peace and the Band of the Hawks have earned reward and praise, but backstabbing highborn nobles, indignant at Griffith's fame and popularity have other things in store for the Hawks. This volume really hits a storytelling high-point in the narrative and Miura shows his ability to do more than marionette complicated battles. The political maneuvering here is layered (but not ...more

This volume opens with the two closing chapters of the six-part arc The Battle for Doldrey, which started in the seventh volume, but it also collects the single stories "Trimuphant Return" and "Moment of Glory", the two-part arc Tombstone of Flame, the single story "One Snowy Night", and ends with the full three-part arc The Morning Departure. All of which more less runs on in a serialised fashion until the very end.

The focus of the story is obviously how the outcome of the battle of Doldrey aff

La caída de Griffits es épica. Uno sabe que algo va a pasar grave. La evolución de Guts es realizada de una manera increíble al punto que desde el volumen 6 hasta este Guts se vuelve un personaje más aceptado por el lector que en los primeros volúmenes donde Guts simplemente es un hijueputa. al ser capitán de los Raiders, Guts encuentra algo que ni él ni él lector hasta el momento se creía que tenía. Que volumen más duro...más por lo que uno sabe que viene. El Skull Knight y su hablada es ...more

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.

La fin de la collaboration entre Guts et Griffith ? Je ne crois pas.
La fin des amours compliquées entre le même Guts et Casca ? Pas no plus.
La fin d'un tas de gens désagréables (ou pas) ? Alors ça c'est sûr ! Et c'est sacrément impressionant quand Guts se bat.
En revanche, les scènes de chateau sont ... moins bien, je trouve.

A damn fine volume, with a great balance between action, political maneuvering, and character moments.

After plenty of chapters focused on Medieval Era Battle Fight Time, it was rewarding to read a volume which legitimately advanced the characters and their relationships (most notably between Guts and Griffith).

Edição em que a história mais se desenvolve, principalmente os personagens. Ainda não é nada muito profundo ou digno de um roteiro inteligente, mas é uma boa diversão em um mangá de ação/aventura/fantasia.

When is this going to get back to the main story? This is the longest 'flashback'/ back-story ever (5 volumes so far). And it doesn't even contain any of the elements the hook had. It's a shame because the drawing has gotten so good.
