It's funny how the Berserk fans don't get any early spoilers, like the Narutards (myself included) get every time a new episode is about to be released.

Miura and his studio are producing the best manga ever, destroying the seinen/mature competion (Gantz/Hellsing/DW/Elfen Lied/Zetman) in most likely every term.

Personally I'm so terrified about the idea that Berserk will just never end in my lifetime that I'd feed myself upon any spoilers that looks anyhow legit and certified... anytime.

Can't wait for 296...
If history is to change, let it change!
If the world is to be destroyed, so be it!
If my fate is to be destroyed... I must simply laugh!!

If I were to make a wager I don't think you'd have to worry about it not being complete in your lifetime.  Even if this was the halfway point in the story, that still would mean it would be done while you are still alive.  Miura doesn't come across as someone that would drag something out for the sake of writing a long story.  There hasn't been any filler in Berserk.
Now I ride with the mocking and friendly ghouls on the night wind
And play by day in the catacombs
I know that light is not for me, save that of the moon
Yet in my new wildness and freedom I welcome the bitterness of alienage
For I know always that I am an outsider...an outsider...stranger in this century...for a time
A stranger among those who are still...men

 :schierke:
Berserk isn't really "dark fantasy" either. It's plain fantasy
Miura has been very protective of Berserk

What do you consider filler?

Edit: Excluding the anime.

I'm not the guy you are replying to, but it just kinda bums me out that anyone of us could be fatally hit by a car, and die never knowing the ending to one of the greatest mangas ever

or the same kinda shit could happen to miura and then NO ONE would know the ending

I've gotta agree, there hasn't been a single episode that hasn't added to the story in an immense way from my perspective. The anime either really, sure there's certain parts, but an entire episode? No way.

Heh, unless he's meaning Schierke, but I'd say that she's as essential to the cast as any of the other recent members, perhaps moreso, given her capability for (partially) restraining  :chomp:

And summoning the Blaze Wheel, the Lady of the Depths and the Lord of Rotting Roots, reviving Guts from madness, leading them to the Qliphoth, explaining the magical world to them, showing Guts the weakness of Ganishka and Daiba... just to name the obvious ones. So, yeah, I'd say she's pretty fucking important.

I think she's important simply because she is, regardless of whatever practical purposes she's served, Miura has made her a main character and focal point.

My prediction is that Griffith will actually just stand there and do all of jack shit.  Ganishka will somehow implode under the strain of this power that he's panickedly threw himself into but has no way of controlling.  I think it'll end up that Ganishka got in way over his head, and when he dies a spontaneous death the real threat will be the power that consumed him(kinda like some of the others have already mentioned in this thread already).

If I'm wrong on that prediction and Griffith does do something, I honestly think it'll be subtle(and surprising) in spite of the magnitude of the situation.

Wouldn't that be pretty UNsurprising though?
