Hi guys, this is my first post!

I've just finished reading the series and have been finding this forum's discussions really interesting!

I think this theory wasn't discussed yet, as I've used the search option to look for it, but if it's something that has been already talked about on the podcasts(which are really good btw!) or somewhere else, I am sorry and please feel free to delete this thread.

So most of you probably know what the Fibonacci sequence is, but if you don't here's a quick explanation from the

Wikipedia page:

"By definition, the first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are 1 and 1, or 0 and 1, depending on the chosen starting point of the sequence, and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two."

Following this rule we obtain the sequence:

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144...

Something I've noticed is that some of Berserk's biggest climaxes story-wise have happened in volumes with numbers that belong to this sequence! Here are some examples:

Vol. 3 - First time we see the Godhand, following the fight vs. the Count

Vol. 5 - Nosferatu Zodd's first appearance

Vol. 8 - Guts leaves the Band of the Hawk

Vol. 13 - Eclipse's Climax

Vol. 21 - Griffith's reincarnation at the Tower of Conviction

Vol. 34 - Creation of Falconia

---

Vol. 55 - Miura said the story was 60-70% done in April 2009, and I quote a post from Walter from 5 years ago:

Anyway, let's reason this out to get a vague prediction of Berserk's future. Let's split the difference and say it's 65 percent through. That would mean the series would be complete at around volume 55 or so.

Knowing Berserk, the series will probably end with a big climax, right?

Some holes this theory may have:

- What actually makes an "big climax story-wise"? I mean how can we compare Zodd's first appearance with, the Eclipse, Falconia's creation or even the end of the series?

- I couldn't think of any "big climax" for the first three elements of the sequence (1, 1, 2)

- There are clearly some events left out like:

- Guts return to the Band of the Hawk (vol.9)

- the reunion with Griffith (vol.10);

- How come there aren't any significant climaxes between the volumes 34 to 55? What does that make of Elfhelm (Casca's supposed cure)?

So what do you guys think? Just a curious coincidence or may have Miura planned it to be like this?

PS - I am sorry for any grammar mistakes, I am still trying to get my english to be more articulate!
