I tried 65% at the time of that interview at the going rate of 10 episodes per volume and 50 volumes was close to the number I got,  but it does seem short.  Hope that made sense.   :schnoz:

That's sound math, but I doubt Miura himself calculated it like that. It was probably more of a shoot from the hip kind of thing. Going at the rate Miura has been progressing the story, I just don't think everything can be wrapped up in 12 volumes. It's not a perfect analog, but consider that 12 volumes ago, Guts had just gotten the Berserk Armor.

I don't care for many AMVs, but I really like the kinetic feel you achieved through the edits.

I would guess 50 volumes would be a safe bet.

Eh, I think that's rather low honestly. That's in less than 12 volumes (we're about halfway through 38 now).

That's the one....so maybe 70-75ish%.

There actually haven't been too many milestones since his assessment in 2009. Since then we've had the Solitary Island stuff and Rickert's arrival in Falconia. But I think 70% might be pretty safe, yeah.

Haha, wow you're right. The lineage didn't cross my mind when looking at the video. Surprising it didn't get a mention in the RPS article. Those guys are usually savvy about that stuff.

Amateurs. :badbone:

I want some opinions about the place we are in the story.  Are we 60% to completion, more, or less?  I always ponder when reading to the current episode, are we even close to the end or are we going to be in our mid 50s before berserks final arc comes to a close.  I thought Miura stated he was around 60% some time ago.

From the interview we did with him back in 2009:

Quote
Q3: Just before the launch of the Millennium Falcon arc, you were quoted as saying now you felt you were truly on the starting line of the series. Is that accurate? If that is the case, how far along are we in the story at this point?

I think we are at about 60-70%. However, I myself donít know anything for sure when it comes to the future.

That's the most authoritative response you're going to get on this question. Our guesses aren't going to be better than that.
