Darn :( we're post 26 weeks now. Thought for sure we'd get an episode at the end of Feb :???:
Well, I think the next chapter is going to be something huge probably very important plot-wise maybe and it might be that Miura wants to take his time to perfect this chapter. It might be a Godhand appearance, or Casca and Guts, Griffith furthering his plans on controlling the hearts and minds of the people, or maybe it might be a chapter full of beautiful awe-inspiring sights once again showing Miura excellent skills as an artist. Whatever it is it will be well worth the wait as per usual that I can guarantee.

where is Skullknight :SK:

No episode on february 22 in the Young Animal.
Well, I shouldn't be surprised, but somehow I am. Thanks for the early update. Now we're truly in uncharted territory. :shrug:

There's no way that a 6 month break is the result of Miura not knowing how to execute on a single episode. He releases them in batches, so he's probably spending the time working on his next batch of episodes -- simple as that.

He makes them in batches :???: makes sense better to release them one after another.

5-6 releases dropped randomly throughout a calendar year makes much less business sense than 5-6 sequential monthly releases. Hence batches.

Take a look at the past decade on the release chart and it should make sense how it went from pure chaos to a semblance of order. http://skullknight.net/releases

Grail Serpico!
Disappointing, but we shall carry on as always, I suppose. This is why I shouldn't get my hopes up :judo: Thanks for keeping us in the loop Heiji!
 
Starting with the 5th issue, which will be published this Friday, of the Young Animal, the digital edition will be released on the same day as the paper edition. Until now, the digital edition was released two weeks after the paper edition.

:ganishka: That's great news, except it's crazy that Hakusensha lasted as long as they did with this crazy scheme of not stepping on the toes of print.

Thanks for the update though. This is really great news for Berserk fans. It means there's zero reason not to get the Japanese digital editions officially.

Awesome! This decreases the need to rely on scans provided by third parties for fans eager to follow the series' prepublication outside Japan.

Well, that's not a surprise. The last time Berserk was released in the second week, as opposed to the fourth week, was nearly 5 years ago (336 - 08/08/14).
