This is the 30th volume of the Berserk series. Guts and Serpico face off and finally get their fight. Then Guts insists on seeing Lady Farnese; Guts and crew arrive at the fancy party just as evil tiger monsters attack the guests. Guts and crew fight and defeat said monsters; then an Apostle shows up. Lady Farnese makes the decision to continue traveling with Guts and her intended offers to take them to Elf Home on his ship.

Another well done volume in the Berserk series. This was a bit slower th

Guts and Serpico fight looked so cool. Farnese was so good in this volume, I love her character development.
And once again, it's havoc, battlefield and monsters. It's fun to see people reacting to Guts & Co in a "wow they killed these monsters so effieciently how are they?!?!" way.

When will we finally get on the damn ship.

The Volumes still seem slower then usuall we went abit far from our destination
and the final battle in this volume is the same battle from last volume and from the begining of this volume all over again
The best thing in this volume is the battle between Guts and Serpico and Guts won again no surprise there Serpico is smart but Guts isnt stupid either
Farnese coming to the aquistion of the thorn snakes is amazing now she can finally do a better job protecting Casca
Isidiro and Puck team work is ac

I thought I had marked this as read a bit ago. Anyway, I've been done.

It has been a bit since I read one of these, and I know they are slowing down in the real world as well, but this one was fun. Guts is always great and it was good he got his new family back together again. It would be nice if they could just get on a boat and sail away, but I'm finding that the story is moving forward nicely and it all makes sense.

I haven't looked, but I remember watching the anime 20 years ago (yikes I'm old

This volume has a great balance of action and storytelling. Literal giant tigers crash the Vandimion pre-war toast, but not before Papa V. insists on controlling his daughter’s future. Watching Serpico fight Guts was a highlight, because we’ve never witnessed someone fight Guys from their perspective and live. A complaint I’ve had about past issues is characters repeating ‘wHo Is ThAt!? HiS SwOrD is HuGe’, but in this volume Serpico comments that Guts can’t do that anymore thanks to the demon ar ...more

We get back into the action here. Guts comes back in and saves the day. You’d like that maybe that would get old, Guts always saving everyone else, but for some reason it doesn’t. I instead find myself smiling when the ‘everyone else’ always exclaims over him being able to swing his massive sword. I guess because I am so invested in him, I love it when he shows everyone he’s stronger than he looks. And it’s true not just physically but also mentally. Guts has put up with hell, literally. But he’ ...more

Good volume that allows underwhelming characters like Farnese to get a moment to shine and she is actually become a much better character. Also again we see Serpico use his wit and intelligence as we get another cool fight between Guts and him. Serpico is still my favorite character and would love to see him get more awesome fights. Also nice that the Church is getting more fleshed out as we finally get to meet some of the leaders of it and we get a glimpse of Griffith's plan. ...more

30 volumes in Berserk is still great, I thoroughly enjoy each volume. And I acknowledge once an ending is in sight it can effect the rest of the story but it’s the simple appeal of somebody struggling against life trying to box them into a role that I enjoy seeing again and again no matter how often the beats can be repeated.

I am always in awe of Guts overpowering everyone else in a fight and his capsule disregard for “normalcy” or the notions of people who are determined to make the decisions o

This was the volume that I got burned out on Nd quit reading for a year or so. Pretty great, but my limit was 29 volumes in a row. It kind of felt like it started repeating itself and the story was meandering. Good to pick up after a year though.

Our odd bunch of travellers invite themselves to Farnese fathers party. Her engagement will be announced but the Kurusham emperor intends to start the war. There is a ship and our group battle to get to it, through a city of demons. Farnese's fiancee and her brother go with but have so much to understand. Guts find another apostle. Will he be able to manage the armour? We'll have to read 31 to find out. ...more

The introduction of the tigers was very well executed, being paced and framed like a horror movie. And the action that followed was pretty great (as was the fight with Serpico). It feels like getting to the confrontation with Ganishka was kind of rushed, but it had to be done right now since Guts is about to leave the mainland.

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.

The only fault with this series is that one can never get enough of it. The series has been going strong for more than 20+ years and I believe that it has at least another 15. The writing is detailed, impressive and cannot be compared. The writing/release of volumes is tediously slow in comparison to the hype one experiences whilst reading Berserk's dark, gritty, and strangely realistic themes that we experience in our every day. ...more
