Yay finished this amazing issue much faster then the last one
there is something annoying me about the art Guts's Big ass sword measurements is not always right
its like the artist is trying so hard to make it fit into the panels thus dwarfing them
Its another one of those crazy nights
The falling of the tower scene was amazing
all those crazy monsters rising from the ground amazing
the priest and his band becoming demons is amazing
oh but the crazy monsters aren't really that creative they are slow

The flirting with a second Esclipse and introduction of the egg of the perfect world make this volume fascinating as the retribution arc seems to have real overarching plot significance that the last few arcs really didn't have. Casca' continued importance and The Skull Knight's fatalism hint at the significance. This volume reads incredibly quickly.

This the 20th volume in the Berserk series. In this volume Father Mozgus is determined to sacrifice Casca to demons and Guts is determined to rescue her. Meanwhile Luca meets the Skull King who surprisingly saves her, while showing her some of the crazy events that are taking place.

There is a ton of fighting between Guts and Mozgus and his unholy minions. At the end of it all the Godhand rises again….

The illustration is in keeping with previous volumes; very well done. The story makes a lot of p

Ok, ahora sí: por primera vez se me hizo largo un tomo de Berserk. Y confuso. Y hasta algo cansador. Pero el dibujo sigue siendo alucinante, los personajes -no sé cómo- pero se hacen querer, y la historia sigue avanzando, aunque en esta ocasión sea de a puchitos.

En este volumen parece la saga de la Condena finalmente llega a su clímax. Batallas, mitología y buenos personajes situados en un punto en el que la explosión es inminente.

Casca est en très mauvaise posture mais tout semble lié par un destin funeste, ils sont connectés par ce sacrifice.

L'intervention du chevalier squelette est impressionnante, je ne pensais pas qu'il avait de la considération pour d'autres êtres humains que Guts et j'aimerai en savoir plus sur son rôle à jouer dans cette bataille.

Ce tome marque aussi le retour de Zod qui cherche à se battre contre un combattant qui saura lui résister.

Mais Guts a déjà tellement à faire, je me demande comment il va

Tons of action in this volume. Most of the volume is Guts fighting the Inquisition – and having a hard time at it – or the Skull Horseman facing off the latest apostate or the hundreds of people camped at the base of the Tower of Conviction fighting among themselves as more and more demons and spirits are brought into the area, following Casca’s and Gut’s brands. And surprisingly, Casca’s and Gut’s child, possessed as a fetus and never truly born as should be, takes a front role. The volume ends ...more

Berserk is the tale of Guts, the Black Swordsman. He is on a quest to find meaning in his life and that has taken the form of being a mighty warrior. In this episode, he is searching for Casca, his love, who has been taken in, while suffering from amnesia, by prostitute and then captured by a religious leader in a tower inhabited by evil. While the religious leader is torturing alleged heretics, he has taken Casca and believes to be the head witch of the heretics. He is planning to burn her at t ...more

This rendition of Berserk finds a parallel to the earlier sacrifice, and pushes the overall narrative forward moreso than several of the previous volumes; while the battles with some of the sent monsters feels a bit distracting at best, the battle with Mazgus himself is engaging and interesting. It's another fine volume, even if Griffith's presence is surely missed here.

These last few have been building up to something and i can only imagine it will be huge. Terrible place to leave it as i only got 19 and 20 right now. Not necessarily a cliffhanger but there is a lot going on and a lot is going to happen. Looking forward to reading more but even at my glacial pace im catching up at an alarming rate.

A lot happened in this volume, we learnt a lot about the behelt, the ending was super creepy, what is to come of that creepy baby demon now ingested by that ugly thing... Another dooms day is upon us and Casca about to be fried, I'm intrigued !

Nice development and nice twist that the Church is not the main villains even with them being built up to be. Also nice design for the actually villain.

Parece que cada evento por separado forma parte de un plan mayor, que la voluntad del hombre no es más una entidad superior moviendo sus fichas como si de un juego de ajedrez se tratara. Cuando respiramos, cuando cambiamos la almohada de lugar, miles de organismos microscópicos mueren, y esas muertes dan lugar al nacimiento de nuevos organismos, en Berserk parece ocurrir lo mismo, sólo que los organismos diminutos son los humanos.

I find it hilarious that the very next volume actually starts to pick up in a big way after I complained about the previous.

This volume again continues the previous arc, but it doesn't finish it, so you're left wanting.

We get to see what that Inquisitor dude, Mosguz truly is, though I'm a bit confused about exactly what he is and what his agenda is.

Art is really good in this chapter. Most of the imagery is boldly drawn, and there's a decent amount of action. But the happenings here all feel a bit time consuming, like not a ton of progress is made by our heroes. I'm hoping volume 21 wraps things up here. Still fearful

La serie di eventi legati all'inquisizione è una delle parti più disturbanti e complesse della serie fino a questo punto, in questo volume finalmente assistiamo alle conseguenze degli abusi condotti dai religiosi sulla popolazione raccolta nei campi profughi al di fuori della sacra torre della verità, già stremati dall'avanzate dell'esercito invasore nella terra d'Albione e gli eventi predetti da skull knight iniziano a mostrarsi...

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 atmosfera es muy buena, los personajes todos son interesantes y cada uno tiene su momento en la historia. Los dibujos como siempre son hermosos y llenos de detalles, las partes de acción son intrépidas y buenas peleas. La historia engancha y dan ganas de saber que pasara. Muy buen tomo.
