This issue will be coming with a 100 Pages of Berserk annex of some sort it looks like. Will definitely try and snag this in 2 weeks!

If it's anything like the "Character & World" guide they released in 2009 for the 20th anniversary, it won't knock your socks off. But I dunno, maybe it'll be cool this time?  :void:

Edit - hmm upon closer examination the 1st episode is also coming out with this issue. It seems these two episodes might be connected somehow? I dunno exactly how though...

That doesn't make much sense to me. The first episode of ... what, the anime? It might just be referring to a preview for it. Maybe it means 2 Berserk episodes at once?  :ubik: ...  :judo:

That is awesome news! I'm glad we go back to monthly. Now I hope we get a real real monthly. The break was probably due to the new anime production and maybe build up some new fans? Either way Berserk is back in a couple of weeks and this makes me very happy.

Now this was happy news to wake up to. Hoping to learn more about Morda.

Not to mention the monthly steps towards moments everybody has been waiting absolutely forever for. Damn awesome time to be a Berserk fan.

Can't wait, I'm glad they didn't promise a summer release and publish the episode August 31st or something. Hopefully this monthly schedule will last for as long as possible.


Here's the official word:

Edit - hmm upon closer examination the 1st episode is also coming out with this issue. It seems these two episodes might be connected somehow? I dunno exactly how though... maybe Guts' and Puck's meeting?

Hope it's good, I'd sell my right arm for a World of Ice and Fire style guide of the Berserk universe.

I was simply happy that a new episode was coming out soon, but the added bonus that the series will be on a monthly release again is great news (hope it'll last a little longer than last year's run).

Yeah, the more intriguing news out of all this is the re-publishing of the first episode of the series. Coupled with the cover redesign of volume 1 to match that of volume 38, it has to make one wonder what's coming. However it could just be because the TV series is going to cover the same material, and presumably won't be doing so exhaustively. A way to let people experience the real Berserk in parallel to the anime. It's happened when the movies were being released too, with special edition releases of the first 14 volumes.

Another thing to note is that "The Black Swordsman" is 90 pages long, so coupled with the supplement, the new episode and all the anime stuff, that's a lot of Berserk. :guts:

The result is very neat and actually works really well in tandem with volume 38. Very cool.  That being said, the redesign artwork wins.

I can't not see smoke coming out of Guts' head when I look at those covers.

Thanks, but these aren't new, we've commented on them a while ago. I still think that new cover design sucks, especially because of the smoke. The rest I can live with.

In the covers defense, Guts does get very, very angry (it is called Berserk, after all). :troll:

what happy news to come back to. I can't wait for June 24th! I was thinking the next episode would be some time in July or August, but I'm pleased that it's this month and that it will be resuming a monthly release!  :ubik:

It has been ages, but that's because the episodes you reference have been in Vol 37 since 2013  :ganishka:

Vol 38 will (likely) cover :

- 334: Human City
- 335: Divine Right of Kingship
- 336: Pandemonium
- 337: The Bridge of Separation
- 338: The Dusky Assassin
- 339: Capital City Under the Moonlight
- 340: Combat in the Darkness
- 341: Soaring Escape
- 342: Landing
- 343: Fire Doll

LOL. Grabbed my copy of 37 and literally face palmed. Guess I'm just rusty :farnese:
