Ah man this is awesome!!!! though i don't know if i want to use that alternate cover, i would feel like framing it instead. The poster looks pretty cool too, though it looks like Zodd's gonna win as one of his horn looks like its gonna pierce Guts' heart :zodd:. The part that kills me is that the place where i get my Japanese Berserk volumes and Young Animal , said even though i reserved the YA they can't guarantee a copy :mozgus: :judo:

Damn, it's a shame this issue can't be ordered individually without a pricey subscription  :chomp:(not all of us are made of money)  :puck: I guess the only way I will be able to get the variant slipcover is through high res scans from some generous person, which makes me sad.  :judo:

I agree this Volume 34 cover with Griffith and Zodd is amazing! Some of the more recent Volume covers (the profile ones) weren't really all that interesting in my opinion. Not that they were bad...just not attention grabbing...but wow 34 is Miura at his best! 

Can't wait to pick this one up!

Where can you buy this from? I know it is most likely going to end up on YJA, and maybe even eBay.

You'll be able to buy that issue of YA and the accompanying bonuses from Yahoo! Japan auctions.

It'll be bundled with YA. And I doubt it's going to end up on eBay.

That poster of Zodd and Guts is a must have for me! It would be even nicer if there was a bit of BG in there.


A Berserk fan? Well, I guess you wouldn't look like as much of a pansy with Guts on it.:troll:

Thanks Aaz for the great news!

The alternate Book 34 cover really stands out to me. It's pretty awesome to see Guts and Griffith both decked out in full armor. I love the rendering of "sane" Berserker Guts especially.

I'm going to hit up my local Kinokuniya today and see if they'll be getting any of these in (or if I could even order it through them).

Oh man, too cool! Thanks for posting pics of all those goodies, Aazealh! Both the regular and alternate cover for Vol. 34 kick ass. I'll see if I can snag this off of Yahoo! Japan Auctions or at the Kinokuniya down the street.

These are some spectacular freebies! If I had to pick, I'd say I'm most interested in the mini-booklet about the characters and world of Berserk. That sounds really intriguing. I wonder how extensive it'll be, and if it'll include English translations of the names, like they do with the current character summaries in the volumes.

I've already requested Wed. off work so I can take in all the 307 goodness without distraction  :griffnotevil:

I absolutely love it all; covers, everything. I agree the mini-booklet, I'm looking forward to the most and hope that it holds some new or clarifying information. Also is the booklet written by Miura which I assume or just someone writing with the same view/info as us.

This is probably my most anticipated episode so far.

It's not sure yet that it will contain much text (could very well be mostly pictures), but if it does it will have probably been written by people from the YA staff, possibly with Miura's collaboration.

EDIT: The page for the Berserk event is up on Yurindo's website: http://www.yurindo.co.jp/info/0909berserk34.html

Looks like my guess was correct: the city of Falconia has appeared, and Ganishka may apparently have turned into a tree. :guts: The city has a very... futuristic look to it, if you ask me. Locus will feel right at home! :void:

The episode is 23 pages long, all two-page spreads save for one. Next episode will be released on October 9.

Good call Aaz. I'm loving the two page spreads.

The place is massive. So this is what all those bodies paving the stone path leads too.
