--- Quote from: ANN ---Retailers Amazon Japan, Rakuten, and Gamers! are all listing that Kentarou Miura's Berserk manga will get a novel that will ship on June 23 titled Berserk: Honō Ryū no Kishi (Berserk: The Flame Dragon Knight).

The retailers list Makoto Fukami and Miura as the authors. Fukami is the series composition writer for the new Berserk series that premiered last year, as well as the continuation that premiered on April 7. Fukami also wrote the script for the Psycho-Pass television anime series and film, and the Resident Evil: Vendetta film. He is also a novelist known for the Young Gun Carnival light novel series.

I'm not to sure what to think about that... Do you think it'll be new material or is that some other kind of adaptation? Thoughts/clues?

Aazealh:
Really curious to know more about this novel in order to determine if it has any merit. Specifically eager to know if it will be canon or not and what Miura's involvement has been in its creation. If if it's just some side thing from Makoto Fukami "based on" Berserk then it's as relevant as the recent anime adaptations. A curiosity at best.

But if it's canon and Miura contributed heavily then it implies a lot for the future of the series. For example the past of some characters (Grunbeld, Locus, Rakshas, Irvine... and more) might be told through novels and skipped in the manga, which would be very regrettable in my opinion.

As much as I like back story, like you said, I'd rather have them in the manga (for multiple reasons) than in a light novel. I'm still curious to know more though.

To be honest if Miura were to outsource the backstories it would feel like a betrayal to me. But let's reserve judgment until we know more.
