Casca & Guts reunion! A brief one at that. I mean, C’MON. Can’t the fate give them a break for once? 😩 They haven’t seen each other in two years yet when they meet again he gotta save her from being raped. *sigh* Some things never change. 😪 Serpico is getting more and more interesting 👀 I bet he’s about to play a big part in the future events. I LOVE MY BOY ISIDRO. Him and Puck provide a much needed comic relief and I’m VERY thankful for that.
Anyways, something HUGE is coming and I am not ready

This is where the Conviction arc begins to lose me a little. All the fights are great and the bloodshed memorable and amazing - as usual - but the plot gets a lot more difficult to follow.

Honestly, if the world goes just as haywire around Casca as it does around Guts, I wonder how she made it this far without his help in the first place. You'd think she would have spread death and dismay everywhere by now. I'm glad she's fine.

Fight with Serpico is a highlight. All the slaughter from before, you'

More addictive then the last two volumes
Problem is i am working these days not much time for reading anymore and such is the way of life
Next volume will be absolute fireworks its so promising
It looks like the inquisitor is really a human and it looks like from the final page that he is going to be turned into one of the demons
Casca is so out of it even though she proved she is still athletic with that stunt she made when she dropped her self from the ropes and jumped from rock to rock to

Miura seems to have something very large set up for Casca and Gatts raids the Vatican strong hold and it becomes clear both the pagans and the faith had demonic influences and apostle involvement. Putting Casca in constant peril seems like an unfortunate trope but the further development and introduction of side-characters is welcome.

This is the 19th volume in the Berserk series. Guts finally catches up with Casca briefly in this volume only to lose her again. Casca has been taken to the Tower of Conviction to be worshiped as a black witch. However, when Guts and Isidro help her escape she is taken prison again, this time by the Inquisitor. When the Inquisitor starts to torture her all hell, literally, breaks loose!.

This manga continues to be filled with amazing detail and artwork, especially in this volume. I was very impre

More torture, beware! Guts has made it to the city but Casca is one step ahead of him already. And then he finds her only to lose her again. This does nothing for his temper. I’m glad they are both in the same volume again though. And Guts gets so close. It makes you want to growl when she’s taken away. The arc has definitely picked up. And from some hints by the Skull Swordman, there is more to this arc than first meets the eye. I love the complexity. There is always something more than what yo ...more

I love it, I love this manga and this volume in particular.
I am infinitely fond of Guts, I am as always happy to see Casca, Luca is a new fave, Ishidoro is such a good kid, I love Guts and Ishidor's dynamics. Farenze is so fascinating, I want to hate her and I do hate her actions but damn if she is not a complex captivating character.

The art is magnificent, I love the action scenes and horror scenes and quiet and personal panels of Guts.

Oh and those eyes on the full black colored panel, I am int

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.

Pretty solid entry in the series. Picking up where the last section of the story left off, we have basically 3 groups: Casca and her female "friends", Guts + Puck + Little Rock Throwing Thief, and the Holy Knights.

Lots of action this chapter, and boldly drawn demonic scenes if you like those.

There's some moments that you'll just want to scream at the characters though, particularly crazy goldilocks. Overall though, solid entry.

Berserk is steamrolling ahead at great pace.

I love the series and the quality doesn’t go down in this volume. If for some reason you’re on the fence about continuing you shouldn’t be it’s worth reading on.

Guts is in pursuit of Casca. And the religious mercenary band are after Guts and a certain cult. Won’t go into anymore because it’s a great read.

The art is amazing as always and the quality is kept throughout.

5 stars.

Nice development of the Religious characters also I am really starting to like Serpico for he is so far one of the few characters who can give Guts some trouble but not because of his strength but solely because of his skill and intelligence as his plan was really well thought out. Still like the demon designs but still wished their was not a huge reliance on sex and sexual imagery.

It's mainly another transitional volume as we move towards whatever showdown will be taking place at the tower. I'm not crazy about the comic relief provided by Isidro and Puck, but I suppose it does help in some regards. Serpico continues to build a slow burn interest, setting the stage for what should an epic upcoming volume. ...more

This volume was awesome and its Guts pretty much going on the hunt for Casca as she is first taken by the cultists and then when possessed and fighting them, the Knights come in and Guts is there too dashing and slashing them to look for Casca but then she is taken by the knights, Guts on his journey there to look for her, but the darkness and creatures of the dark follow her and may have consumed her. What will her fate be and can Guts save her? Also interesting things with Nina and her rescue ...more
