I was the same way as you, except I saw perhaps 5 minutes total of the 1997 anime before I went and purchased the first 38 volumes within the same week. It's funny, with all the hype that the movies / 2016/2017 anime's got they are still not selling fans on the manga nearly as much as the 90's adaptation. Its been over 20 years and that series is still selling volumes. Imagine if we ever got a proper modern adaptation, Berserk would be incredibly popular if given that kind of exposure IMO.

I loved the Golden Age which the anime covered, but the story after was simply wave after wave of awesomeness. It's like I would finish a volume and be like "OK there is no way this could get any more awesome" and then the next volume I open Guts bursts out of the chest of an apostle xenomorph style wearing the most bad ass set of armor I've seen since god knows when and at that point I was addicted. 

I'm sure you will love it here, the admins are all very helpful and I've learned so much in just a short time being here.

Manga Mausoleum / Re: Dark Horse Releases

I didn't even know Dark Horse sold them independently, weird. They have their own app and comic reader? I'd contact Comixology and let them know you have a license from Dark Horse, and ask if they can grant you that on their end. I wouldn't think that it's two separate licenses (just two different portals), but maybe I'm being naive...?

I wish I had gotten my volumes through Comixology rather than directly from Dark Horse as the former's app is a better reading experience in my opinion. We're unable to sync the two accounts so I guess I'm screwed  :sad: .

Anybody have any idea if that will change eventually?

I finished Final Fantasy II on Saturday. Man, I'm glad that's over. I appreciate the attempt at innovation with the EXP system (or lack thereof), but it just didn't work. That being said, the game was a decent amount of fun and I'm glad I gave it a shot.

I started playing Phantasy Star on Sunday. I already like it more than Final Fantasy II, but that wasn't too high of a bar to reach. It's very unique so far, and I'm really enjoying myself. I even played for about 45 minutes before going to work today. It's nice being able to save anywhere in the world, and I love the fact that I need to take notes and draw out the dungeon maps like in the good old days.

From Steamworld Heist, which I'm about 10h into now. Towards the end of the game you can find these. The description makes it pretty obvious that it was an intentional reference.

Welcome McAngus !

I had a similar experience, but I just watched one episode of the original anime before diving headfirst into the manga !

Still ... it's much better than most of the Berserk "lore" videos on YouTube, and we certainly aren't making these videos, so props to her for that.

Yea that's basically why it drew my attention, there's only a handful attempts like this and it felt refreshing, albeit incomplete in some respects.

Hey all. I've been a fan of Berserk from when I first discovered the manga about 11 years ago.

I saw the anime first and initially I just wanted to know what the hell happened next. However, after I started the manga I was surprised to discover that there was so much more to the story both in content and depth.

Looking forward to continue following the series along with everyone here.
