Berserk first began in the 1980s, with creator Kentaro Miura spending decades weaving the story of Guts, Griffith, Casca, and the Band of the Hawk. Unfortunately, last year saw the passing of the prolific mangaka, though friends of Miura, Koji Mouri and Studio Gaga, are setting out to complete the long-running story which remains a fan favorite within the anime community. Now, a new color page has been revealed to get fans hyped for the next chapter of the life of the Black Swordsman.
In the last chapter from Kentaro Miura, Guts and his friends had their "peaceful" stay in Elfheim interrupted by the arrival of the Moonlight Boy, the mysterious young child that has been following the gang throughout some of their latest adventures. With the final page of the previous installment revealing that the young child was in fact Griffith, or perhaps a side of the White Hawk that we haven't seen before, it was quite the cliffhanger to end the story on. While Mouri and Gaga haven't revealed how many chapters they're set to work on to wrap the story of Berserk, they've stated that they are looking to honor their departed fan by continuing Guts' journey.
Young Animal released the new colored image of Berserk's 365th Chapter, hinting that there is plenty more carnage and blood for Guts to experience in the future of the series, despite the Black Swordsman recently scoring a major victory in the series by bringing back Casca from the brink of insanity:
Berserk isn't just making a comeback within the realm of manga, this year will also see the trilogy of films hitting the small screen in Japan once again to celebrate the big return via the "Berserk Millenium Edition". As it stands, it doesn't appear as though Berserk will be receiving any new anime adaptations any time soon, though Miura's beloved series certainly has plenty of material that has yet to hit the small screen.
