If you want a translation, find the original text and not an image capture. Just from looking at it, seems the guy was thanked for asking, but instead of getting an answer, was asked to check out the Issue 19 interview we already knew about, and part 2 would be out next.Oscured said:
Any good and positive translations for this?
No, that is not what it says.Gobolatula said:No. 2? January?
We've known that Miura was "taking a break to work ahead" from the very beginning. That's what all publication breaks are usually for, actually. As for releasing episodes without interruption, that's pure conjecture.Heisenberg said:I'm actually getting really excited. If Miura is taking a break to work ahead, hopefully that means big happenings are on the way, and he wants to be able to put out episodes without interrupting it.
I'm aware. I just mean that with this long of a break, I'm hoping he has something good in store for us. I mean he usually does, but you know what I mean.Aazealh said:We've known that Miura was "taking a break to work ahead" from the very beginning.

Hmm, though it's suspicious that no news came from anywhere else, it would honestly be rather difficult to fake something of the sort. That drawing style looks like Miura's, and the typography is that of YA.RaffoBaffo said:I found this on 4chan, it's 99,9999% fake (well, it's 4chan)

said series depicts the world of Berserk 100 million years after the current story.
I'm quite sure that's the case. Exceptionally early, but then again the news is worthy of such a leak.Walter said:this is from an advanced copy of the next issue of YA (Due Nov. 8 ).
Yeah, and Berserk's serialisation will resume afterwards, so it's not so bad. Gigantomachia's publication should end mid-February, so Berserk will probably be back in March. While that may seem long on paper, compared to the current break it's not so dramatic, and I think we should all be pretty excited to get a new story from Miura.Johnny Apples said:Though I'm a bit disappointed at there being no new Berserk episodes in immediate future, it's nevertheless still very refreshing to see Miura trying his hand at something non-Berserk related for the first time in 20 years
Really interested to see what Miura will conjure with this mini-series.This year's 22nd issue of Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine is announcing on Friday that Kentarou Miura will launch a brand-new original manga mini-series called Gigant Makia. The six-chapter story is set in a world 100 million years in the future, and it will begin with a 44-page chapter with a color opening page. Young Animal adds that Miura's Berserk manga will resume after his new mini-series.
Hakusensha published the 37th compiled book volume of Berserk in Japan on March 29. Dark Horse Comics will publish the same volume in North America in December.
If ''giants'' means Miura's own interpretation of mechas, i'll be the happiest man in the universeAazealh said:From what's on the page, the title could be "Gigantomachia" (referring to the battle between the Olympians and the giants in Greek mythology).
Yep, the last time I can recall such a thing was leaked this early was vs .Aazealh said:I'm quite sure that's the case. Exceptionally early, but then again the news is worthy of such a leak.
That's my belief--this is a way to get his creative juices flowing again, and maybe also explore an idea he had while it's still fresh instead of shelving it. Afterall, Miura's worked on Berserk alone for the past 24-25 years.maybe to take a breather from Berserk only so he could come back to it with full creative force?
I know you're just relaying the text, but they spelled the title wrong. It's Gigantomachia (the ch sound is the same as in Deus Ex Machina, which is why the Katakana is spelled that way). As Aazealh noted, it's also based on a real term: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GigantomachyUriel said:My wife let me know her colleague posted this: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-11-03/berserk-manga-to-resume-after-miura-runs-6-chapter-mini-series
Yurp - looks like they updated it to Gigantomakhia from an alternate spelling. Looks like they took the katakana literally in the first draft.Walter said:I know you're just relaying the text, but they spelled the title wrong.
