The first Berserk DVD seems to be doing quite well in the USA.  If the rumors of Media Blasters funding a 2nd season its definitely a possibility that the manga will be localized for a North American release.

I remember reading that it was already licensed by a somebody to come out in the U.S., but that was a year ago.

that actually crossed my mind many a time. it also occured to me that perhaps Hakusensha thought of that too and refused to sell the license...

We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

I heard a while back that it had been licensed.  Whatever company has it is just sitting on the rights.  I'm too lazy to order manga off the internet and find translations, so I hope the recent interest convinces them to release it.

You're probably right Nosferatu, but I don't know about you, but I'm just to lazy to look at the manga, then look at translation, it seems it would get annoying after awhile, though I'm sure it's worth it and highly respect thoughs with enough patience to translate it for everyone.   Also, like PhantomAce, it might come out edited, and if that is the case, I will be buying the Japanese ones.

Hi,

From what I heard - that rumour is an old one - Viz were after the rights to the Berserk manga to co-incide with the release of the D&D Movie and The Lord of the Rings movie - they wanted a fantasy title to take advantage of the anticipated 'fantasy boom', and Berserk is THE fantasy title.  

At any rate, they were apparently unable to acquire the license.  Don't ask me why, but apparently it's not an uncommon experience.

I should point out, this is all unsubstantiated rumour, so...

Berserk is too conversesal (excuse my spelling) to be release in America.

Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream. I am a traveller of time and space, to be where I have been. To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen. They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed.

Oh father of the four winds, fill my sails, across the sea of years. With no provision but an open face, along the straits of fear.
