Volume can preorder on Amazon

Sweet! Unfortunately for me it'll have to wait a bit. I've got to sterilize my cats and it's gonna cost me a lot.  :judo:

Wow! I legitimately was unsure if there'd be enough chapters. I just got my DH copy of 39 and, whoo boy, I was struck by how thin it was  :isidro:

That sounds like there will only be one more episode in the volume (so... seven episodes total). For reference volume 39 has 196 pages.

Damn, looks like we might get after all the shortest volume in the series so far. You think they're trying to go for a volume a year no matter what like Walter speculated a while ago in this thread?

I'm not sure what I prefer, a stuffier volume but not every year or a volume with whatever amount of épisodes they can get their hands on...

All I can say for sure is that I need my Berserk fix! haha

Thoughts/preferences guys?

Yep, pretty sure it will be only one more episode unfortunately. When i saw 180 pages i thought 2 more episode for a moment, but forgot about all the empty+information pages.

v38 (2016): 9 eps; v39 (2017): 8 eps; v40 (2018): 7 eps — sure seems that way to me.

I'd prefer consistently sized volumes, personally. The episodic run isn't as important as the lasting experience, in my opinion.

Very true imo. And to be honest, I don't mind the wait anyway. F*** the impatient ones. The results are always awesome too.

It kinda sucks (at some point) that they seem to go in that direction. (I like stability in my bookshelf. Vol 28, or was it 30 I don't remember, always stand out a lot in my shelf with the paper change for one volume. But thats just me being picky I think hah)

Though I wonder if it'll alternate between 7 to 8 ep per volume with that kind of release schedule.

I wouldn't want to jinx it, but, to me, it seems like they're trying to release a volume this year, because Miura is going to take a longer hiatus again. Perhaps until the beginning of 2019

I'm not a fan of volumes getting scrawnier for the sake of making a yearly release, I'd much prefer waiting for a consistent value.

But anyway, sounds like 357 will come August 24.

Baseless speculation.

Yep, seems that way.

I hate the idea of this being anything close to reality myself. I guess, just have to wait and hope for the best
