The new creative team on Berserk, following the tragic passing of creator Kentaro Miura, hasn't laid off the gas when it comes to the latest chapters of the manga. With Chapter 368 arriving, things have gone from bad to worse in the land of Elfheim as a new darkness surrounds Guts and his friends. With Griffith having Casca firmly in his grasp, the remnants of the Band of the Hawk continue their journey through the dark anime world.
Warning. If you have yet to read the latest chapter of Berserk's manga, Chapter 368, you might want to steer clear as we'll be diving into some serious spoiler territory.
Some of the last chapters that were released for Berserk prior to Miura's passing involved the Moonlight Boy returning to visit Guts and Casca, but unfortunately, the pair discovered far too late that the young being was in fact Griffith, or at the very least a part of the White Hawk. With Griffith joined by Nosferatu Zodd, a new evil encroaches on the mystical locale known as Elfheim, with the heroes now having to worry about a sea of darkness that is swallowing everything in its path.
Luckily for those heroes who aren't Guts or Casca, including the likes of Farnese and Isidro, help arrives in the nick of time from the mysterious Skull Knight, who is able to hold the forces at bay. The sea of gelatinous demonic forces may seem familiar to those who have been following Berserk throughout the years, as a similar threat had appeared during the Conviction Arc, which saw the resurrection of Griffith to the human world.
Guts hardly seems to notice the encroaching sea of blackness by his feet, instead reaching for Casca as she is flown away by both Griffith and Nosferatu Zodd. This couldn't have happened at a worse time as Casca has recently regained her sanity thanks to Elfheim and has yet to have a real heart-to-heart talk with the Black Swordsman in recent chapters.
