Other good series for Berserk fans?
« on: March 11, 2018, 07:36:33 PM »
I've asked this around the web a few times, but I feel like here may have some of the best results. So, anyone know a good manga or anime, or even regular novel, similar to Berserk? Specifically medieval dark fantasy setting, though I'd be interested in anything you'd say is near Berserk's quality

Witcher book series. It's heavier on characters and politics, though. The main plot is often seen from multiple and conflicting POVs.

Oh, one of my friends is a really big fan of that! I'll have to take a look :) thanks for the suggestion.

Not exactly like Berserk, but pick up Lone Wolf and Cub. The damn ending actually had me choking up like I was watching Old Yeller as a kid. One of the best of everything

Oooh that does sound familiar. And it's a long series! That should keep me intrigued for awhile. I love depressing endings xD thanks for the recommendation!

Vinland Saga - manga with medieval, viking setting. Vagabond - feudal Japan with samurai setting.

Vinland Saga will very soon get an anime from Wit Studio ( creators of Attack on Titan ).

Both are great manga with good drawings and decent plot.
