oops its three a.m i am so tired my eyes hurt my body hurts and i cant sleep for some reason and i finished the volume yay.
Amazing volume and amazing start for the black swords man part of the story.
I liked so much how the black swords man came to be his hand and the big ass sword and all that was really amazing.
I also like the new demon and how that part came to be and how they teased us in so many covers with this particular apostle which is just making her debut as well.
Of course its amazing

I didn’t really care for the plot for the most part of this volume but. Demon Infant chapter has ruined me. I’m. gone.
But HEY! my baby Puck the meme king is back and I couldn’t be happier.
Also the art has improved??? Again?? I don’t know how you improve something that’s already perfect but. I mean, it’s Berserk, what did I expect?

This is the 14th book in the Berserk series and it was a very fun one. This is the book where Guts finally gets his amazingly awesome sword and the cannon for his arm. There are also some disturbing revelations around Casca being pregnant.

The illustration continues to be amazing. I was also very impressed with how much progress the story made again this volume. I love the “new” Guts with his cannon-arm and giant sword.

This was the first volume that goes outside of the original Berserk anime seri
Around 3.5. Once again, its only because this feels like an "In-between," volume after the intense crud that just happened. The story here was 'okay.' On the other -and more positive- hand, the beginning of this volume was great.

While "Berserk Prototype" is interesting, Miura's original tone was different. Puck re-entering the narrative is actually welcome as there is a comic relief character and Miura's gives Puck some actual narrative work and not just uses him as a proxy for the reader. Going back to the story present and picking up Black Swordsman arc left off, the introduction of some more apostles, the Holy Chain Knights, and the general creepiness of the Lost Children arc behind here.

Berserk is awesome. The last two volume before this were an extreme high because of how it flipped through your emotions. This volume is still kickass but we finally go back to Guts in the present and when that happens it becomes monster of the week a little bit which is where the shortcoming is. It's all well and good but it feels like it's missing a chapter where instead of that chapter they put the Berserk prototype chapter.

But after the eclipse Guts and Casca are at their lowest points. Guts

This volume starts highly emotional. The damage to Casca is becoming clear and while Gut’s physical wounds will heal, he too has changed emotionally and psychologically. I can see this being the beginning of his slight madness. There is nothing left but vengeance. This series has always been about the darkness of humanity and here it is very prevalent. Halfway through the volume the arc ends and we move back to the present, two years or so later) where Guts is on his hunt to destroy the lower de ...more

The aftermath of The Eclipse has moments that are almost more difficult.

If there's one page that summarizes what Berserk is about, it's Guts' determined look as he leaves the mountain for his quest for vengeance. Berserk is about the determination of the human spirit in the face of unbelievablely terrible shit. Never give up.

And we're back to the Black Swordsman. The Golden Age was great but also so different, this is almost like switching to a different series. I'm excited to see where the sto

I liked that this chapter does delve a little into Fae folk lore with the elves about how they do take people children and they kind of reminded me of will'o'wisps. But nice to see how Guts got his equipment and also like always the demon designs are really well done and do look like something that I would see in Hell. But better yet we finally get to continue the story instead of just being a glorified flashback.

It feels a bit "too easy" how Guts comes across his iconic weaponry, but it certainly is interesting to see the new dynamic presented between himself and Casca, however one sided it may be. This mainly serves as a transitional chapter into future arcs, but there always has to be a fall after the highs that were the last few volumes.

Nothing to say really... The story continues...
I have to add that I really liked the Prototype "chapter", it was really interesting to see how different things looked the first time (especially Guts).

This is a series of graphic novels about a swordsman in a magical era consumed by anger but searching for a purpose. The series has a tendency to skip around in time and this one is no different. The art and story are pretty good and I'm looking forward to the next one.

never connected the influence of evil dead/army of darkness to this but the "groovy" line made that click. not sure if that was something the translators added or if it was in the original japanese

Wait...we're back in the present day!?! Holy fuck I'm not sure how to handle this right now.
This also contained a little diddy on the beginning prototype story which was pretty cool.

This volume reminded me of the first and I find it hard to enjoy vol.14.
The art is still gorgeous and I love Guts but some of the choices the author made don’t sit well with me.
I'd return to Berserk next year for the remaining volumes.

I have just finished the Golden Age arc I’m actually kind of tired. Like, emotionally exhausted? This might be the best thing I’ve read, period. 😭

This volume was a bit hyped down related to the previous ones, as the Golden Age arc came to its end. Adorkable Puck is finally back!

The saga continues. We transition back to present day, following where The Black Swordsman arc left off. It was a good read, though hopefully this isn't just more of The Black Swordsman, with Guts going from place to place and killing the apostles as revenge for their transgressions. Yes, I expect dead apostles, but I'm most interested in seeing the journey of Guts and where Miura plans on taking him.

It's good to have so levity after the 3-4 volumes in a row of pure disdain and misery. I'm glad the original "pilot" manga is also included in this volume.

This volume follows directly after the thirteenth one, which featured Griffith's dark and grim transfiguration, and brings the long running flashback, which began way back in volume three and is usually called The Golden Age after its first eponymous arc, to an end. This brings the reader back to the original narrative presence and picks the plot up sometime after Guts' fateful "reunion" with Griffith and the God Hand, and marks the start of a new long running story line, which is called Convict ...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.

Guts suits up and prepares himself for his war against Hell. This was an amazing volume of a fantastic series, but if you noticed, I took away one star. Why? Because they didn't conclude a story arc within the volume!!! I hate that! Instead, there was a "Prototype" story Kentaro Miura submitted when he was in college, which is neat, but I'd much rather read the conclusion to the story that was going on. Whatever - still a good read!
