Gigantomakhia—new 6-part scifi miniseries by Miura

(1/61) > >>

Walter:


Gigantomakhia is Kentarou Miura's new 6-part miniseries, set in a world 100 million years in the future.

The title is a Greek phrase meaning Battle of Giants. It refers to the mythical war between the gods of Olympus and rebelling giants. For a much more rich exploration of Gigantomachia across the ages, check here.

According to an ad in the Nov. 8 issue of Young Animal, Gigantomakhia will run for 6 issues, likely ending in February 2014, with Berserk set to resume afterward.

The first episode will be 44 pages, with one color page.

We'll know a lot more about the series once we get closer to its release, so stay tuned here!

I'd rather like it being a kind of reset story of humanity vs a sci-fi with robots. (I'm listening to the podcast right now and wanted to set my opinion, back to it now)

Do you guys think (thinking back to what I just heard in the podcast) the Miura worked on that mini during not only in the last break but also in the other ones? Might be a story he was already slowly working on in the past say 2 years?!

It doesn't necessarily have to be one or the other. There could be both elements. Hypothetically, a super advanced civilization whose technology is only accessible to a select few (gods), while the rest of the world is stuck in a desolate condition. And while I know what you mean, it'll be a science-fiction story by definition, being set 100 million years in the future.

Who can say for sure? My hunch is that he started it during the hiatus, but it may have been an idea he's had for a while. Now that I think about it, maybe he stumbled onto something that sparked his interest while researching material for the climax of Berserk.  :beast:

Great skullcast, you guys :guts: Cool timing btw, I was actually just about to rewatch MoS. But man! I cant describe how psyched I am for Gigantomakhia, just the title itself sounds so powerful (love Walters japanese pronounciation there :guts: ) yes, almost more psyched than for Berserk at this point, cause I really believe this will ignite his full creativeness for it in the future. And so thrilling with this greek mythology, a concept truly worthy of an artist such as Miura (granted there ARE artists like Miura out there :iva: )

TheBranded1:
It's good news to know Miura is doing something else berserk. Evenif it's just 6 issues it might just be the start of a new series. With all these months of no berserk , I think we might see several issues (4 to 5 my guess) until there's another pause . Who knows , let's enjoy this for now .
