Dark Horse Releases
« on: September 06, 2004, 07:37:52 PM »
Why does it take Dark Horse so long to release a new volume of Berserk???  They should try and keep up with Kentarou Miura as best as they can...  I wish I could read past volume 5...

Well aside from the fact that it takes time to translate and get the approval of miura, i dont think they would release all 27 volumes in one month.

They wouldn't have to bring out all 27 volumes in one month, but one volume a month would be much better...

God damnit they are taking to long, aren't horses suppose to be fast? 3 freekin months between each one (approx.) by the time they get to vol 12 a year will pass AND 5 YEARS TILL THEY GET TO VOL 27 (if they continue like this) we should write to them or something

Shut up, no one cares. You have SK.net's translations and scans. Hell, most of you even have scanslations. Just be patient and quit acting like little children. If you want manga that bad, print your scanslations and put it all together.

I got the scanlations.  I don't feel ashamed at that.  I've also got the first 4 volumes released by darkhorse.  Heh, I'm the one who emailed darkhorse and brought the news to people here that they intended to bring over the whole series past the first three volumes.  I just hope darkhorse switches it over to bimonthly.

Agreed, just that one month difference, would change six years to get to the current point(vol.28) in the manga down to only four.  But, I suppose we should be thankful that we do not have to wait Eight months in between Volumes. ;D

I emailed them like four different times concerning different areas.  One of them was their release schedule.  They said that if sales continue to do well they will attempt a bimonthly release schedule.

Bimonthly would be sweet, it seems that it is one of the top sellers.  What other areas did your e-mails pertain to?

Like I stated in my first post in this topic,  the one was about them licensing more.  Second post pertained to my second email, concerning the release schedule.  Third email was about including the lost chapter which they said they would look into.  And last had to do with the names of the characters which seems like they went the right with that one.

Scanlations are horrible quality.  Printing all of them would be a waste of paper and ink.  Nobody is acting like a little child, except you.  "shut up, no one cares..."

Hey sorry I didn't mean to cause any harm.  I was just stating that I didn't think that there were good scanlations of Berserk, cuz mine are actually horrible.  I know, I'm new, so I will shut up.  But I wasn't pissed or anything, I was just joking around.  That guy seemed kinda pissed, but oh well, what do I know.. or care, this is the internet.

Yeah, WTF....
Quote from: Dark Horse
....the growing favor of the king towards the Hawk leader raises the hackles of the king's jealous son, who plots to have Griffith summarily assassinated. But if the plot fails, the king's son will likely have to deal with Guts and his titanic broadsword, and the results of such confrontations are rarely pretty... or easy to clean up.
The King's son, I suppose they mean Julius, the King's brother.

Agreed, Reading the Vol, before they sell it would be a plus.

They could not get the summery right for the last couple volumes too.

How patient would you be without at least decent scans? He is impatient but I would be too without scans or at least good ones. Also unlike other members he is at least a new person who is willing to buy the Manga, so people shouldn't be so hard on him.

I read the last few from Darkhorse, whats wrong with them?

Bah, don't you remember? You participated in the dissapointment too.

I feel kind of proud though, because since I sent them an email to change their summerys and rewrite them correctly, they did  ;D.

However, Im too lazy to find the thread with this in it. Seach around the site and find it yourself.  8)

Oh I remember Dark horses original volume 4 summary perfectly, in fact following your idea I too sent a big complaint to the company about expecting better.
What I mean is that there are now summaries of the first 6 volumes and they are all fairly accurate now, so I have no complaints.
